Fashion Off the Charts


Re today’s New York Times article on Beyonce’s couture.

…In April we saw Beyonce’s eyebrow-lifting fashion when she appeared on her balcony at the Paris Ritz wearing a triangle-shaped black see-through skirt and black briefs.

Of course we took pictures of both the hot-pantsed singer and her excited 14-year-old admirer, above.

On the other side of the fashion spectrum are the pink frilly dresses of girlhood. A Princeton University Press book, also cited in today’s New York Times, links dresses to healthy female gender identity. In very young children, it concludes, “pink frilly dresses are especially salient and concrete feature of ‘girl-ness.’ ”

We ’40s babes already knew.
