Look A Little Closer

Is it just me, or does Terri Hatcher for Badgley Mischka look like a middle-age Guess girl?

I really wish Mark Badgley and James Mischka would put a little more thought into who they choose to represent their clothing. Terri Hatcher? Really? As much as I hate to admit it, I think the Olsen twins were a better pick.

Now that we're on the topic though, why are designers still following the trend of celebrity endorsers instead of using trained models? Angelina Jolie for St. John, Scarlett Johansson for LV, Lindsay Lohan for Miu Miu?!! Come on! I want to see Gemma Ward or Lily Cole or Agyness Deyn (thank you, Burberry) or one of the other hundreds of models working in NY/London/Paris/Milan.

Plus, Sienna Miller on the cover of Vogue?!! Please. What has she done lately other than model in ads for Tod's?

Poor real models...before they know it, they'll be out of a job. Soon we'll probably see someone as unqualified as Paris Hilton strutting down a runway. Oh, wait.
