I’m sending a box of chocolates to Herve Leger. Why you ask? Well as the story goes Herve is a bit miffed that models wearing his once famous designs aka bandage dress, are looking “sad and skinny.”
To give you a little Glamour Girl background: Herve Leger(design) was acquired by the BCBG Max Azria Group in 1998. In 2007 Max Azria relaunched the Herve Leger brand under his own label and since then has continued to show the “bandage dress” in his collections-(which brings us to the sad and skinny part of the story). BCBG/Max Azria, -chooses to use models on his catwalk that are VERY THIN, (who are we kidding- the girls are hedging on looking gaunt and malnourished). I can only surmise that when one is starving and longing for a single morsel of solid sustenance they may be less than happy i.e. SAD! Anywho…Mr. Herve Leger would like to see his original concept of the bandage dress worn on women with curves. If you remember the original bandage dress was worn by the super-est of the supermodels- Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell.
In celebration of Mr. Leger advocating women with curves-I feel it only “fitting” to send him a beautiful box of chocolates….Enjoy!
