French fashion video

I went searching for more information on this interesting looking model, who was one of my “porcelain beauties“:


and found this video:

Making the Lanvin Fall/Winter 2013-2014 campaign

which I quite liked (especially the intriguing woman, who plays all six personas.)

She is Edie Campbell, who is quite an accomplished woman (“She later graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London with a First Class Honours degree in History of Art.”)

It appears she is well-known. One sees a lot of girls in the media who seem to be anonymous. She is 25 years old, which I think is about the time when a woman looks her best.

Here is another shot of her:


She is quite an accomplished horsewoman too, and I think this is her, from this “romantic” montage: (she is riding side-saddle and he has the reins, which is a traditional representation of course):

    I noticed that she is sitting side saddle and it got me thinking….

    You ever noticed Julian how it is perfectly ok for a woman to want a masculine man yet when a man wants a feminine woman it’s “bigotry”? (I realize though that the Idiot Left has redefined femininity to mean something it isn’t. Really they want it to be the exact same thing as masculinity).

      Well, she is playing a role as a model in that photo.

      However most women, given the chance, prefer a masculine looking and acting man.

      As for the views of the Left, I just try to do (and say) what I like without worrying what they might think.

      I cannot emphasise too much how many women (apparently) secretly prefer that men not pander to fashionable feminist nonsense. In fact, I have a game I play – write something outrageous and see what reactions one gets. The results can be surprising. Many women are not just non-feminist. They are anti-feminist.

      My strong advice is write what you really think – no matter how “outrageous” it may sound – and NEVER apologise. And if a man is any kind of “writer” (not that I claim the title, but I do write a bit), write what you really think and feel and never mind the consequences.

      β€œIn a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
      ― George Orwell

      “Never retract, never explain, never apologise.” (attrib B. Jowett, 1893 December)


  2. She’s not actually riding sidesaddle – wrong side, for starters – so her pose is even more diminutive than you think. It’s a representation of a man who’s scooped her up and set her down in front of him, reminiscent of the dashing warrior who rescues a damsel in distress. The rope reins also suggest he is a rugged manly type who can ride bareback, fashion reins himself from scratch, and possibly even tame a wild horse. Classic, old-fashioned masculine prowess contrasted with feminine passiveness. She’s even wearing pink and has flowers in her hair. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the correction, especially on side-saddle, Mishka.

      About the only woman who still does that would be the Queen on ceremonial occasions I suppose.

      Yes, the whole image is very feminine. I put it down to its being from an Italian magazine.


  3. No, there are sidesaddle clubs all over the world, e.g. There are thousands of women who ride sidesaddle.


  4. Here are some Colorado gals strutting their stuff:
