SPREAD: Bristol Palin Throws A Tea Party In Harper’s Bazaar
Harper’s Bazaar is continuing its quest to be the go-to magazine for every singe pop culture reference out there by featuring Bristol Palin in a tea party-themed spread for their June issue. While the mag describes the editorial as “charming,” we think it’s kind of hilarious and sincerely hope that Bristol was in on the joke.
As for the fashion, the former first daughter of Alaska models gowns by Carolina Herrera, Lanvin, Isaac Mizrahi, and Michael Kors.
Our favorite part of the accompanying article might be the description of Bristol’s closet and the ensuing exchange between mother and daughter:
Bristol’s bathroom is strewn with makeup, earrings, and a hair iron; her closet is filled with more than 30 pairs of jeans; and she has pink kitchen utensils and a pink KitchenAid mixer that was a 19th-birthday present from her mother.
The townhouse’s decor is similarly youthful. There is a leopard-print carpet in the upstairs hallway, and the living-room rug features purple and black swirls. Both choices seem to bemuse her mother.
“You don’t like it,” Bristol teases.
“Noooooooo, I love your carpet,” Sarah protests, announcing, “This is so Bristol. She is a free spirit, a fun spirit.”
And our second favorite part is this behind-the-scenes video:
Some more excerpts…
On being pregnant during the 2008 presidential campaign: “It’s not like we all sat down and were like, ‘Alright, here’s the birds and the bees.’ Truly, my parents just assumed that I wasn’t doing anything. And it was a shock for us all.”
“It was kind of humiliating. . .Great, I’m 17 years old, I’m 40 pounds overweight with a big belly on me, all my friends are at school watching this on the news. This kind of sucks.”
On taking responsibility as a working single mother (Bristol works as a medical assistant, serves as an ambassador for Candie’s foundation, and fully supports herself and her baby): “I’m on my own. I’m really proud of it. I’m a hard worker.” “I don’t have time for friends or anything like that. It’s just like, Right, crap, there is a hockey game tonight that I want to go to but I can’t. Or, I do have to go to work today, because I’ve got bills to pay.”
On dating: Bristol is not seeing anyone at the moment: “I’m in no rush. One day I’ll find a nice guy.”
On her son, Tripp: “I thought I would be somewhere warm at college with my friends, but that was definitely not possible with having Tripp. I love my baby more than anything. He’s like a Gerber baby. He’s the cutest baby in the whole world…I just want Tripp to be happy and healthy.”
Sarah Palin on her daughter, Bristol: “We’re very proud of her for taking responsibility. It’s not an easy road, but it’s the right road. Decisions were made, and we can’t unwind those decisions. Consequences are being dealt with. I’m sincerely proud of her.”
