We’re used to topless fashion shoots in the Next Top Model franchise (and the models’ moral quandaries that come with them), but topless protestors? Not so much. But at last night’s finale of Germany’s Next Top Model, host Heidi Klum was ambushed on stage during the live broadcast by a pair of angry activists with slogans scrawled across their chests.
Yesterday we reported that teenagers were protesting outside of Teen Vogue‘s Manhattan offices in the hopes that the magazine would make an anti-airbrushing, pro-diversity pledge. Now it’s sounding like things didn’t go as well as they had hoped.
In hopes of putting an end to the thousands-strong protest on its doorstep, Dolce & Gabbana has formally apologized to the city of Hong Kong after one of the company’s stores there was perceived to have taken a racist stance against local citizens.
The Dolce & Gabbana store in Hong Kong that caused controversy when it stopped residents of the city from taking pictures of its windows has brushed off allegations of racist policies as hogwash. Still, that hasn’t stopped thousands of angry people from protesting outside the store.
Here in New York, vast swarms of people have literally been occupying Wall Street in protest against what they believe our nation’s biggest financial institutions have willing done to America’s economy. And they’re starting to get more attention for what they wear than what they’re saying.
Confession: when we were 14, we loved Abercrombie. We thought their polos were so cool (that embroidered moose!) and that the boys who worked their were so cute. (Don’t judge – Gaga wore Abercrombie, too!) And we were always super jealous when our older-looking friends were approached by the salespeople — sorry, “brand models” — and asked to apply to work there. But then we turned 15. Nearly a decade later, times have changed. Not only do teens think Abercrombie is, like, so totally lame, some are even protesting the brand.
