I’m in awe of this woman (In fact, I’m sitting here thinking, how didn’t I think of this first). Thank Flying Spaghetti Monster Nancy Upton had the audacity and intelligence to respond to this horrific 'booty call' from American Apparel in such a perfect way.
Right the fuck on Nancy! Anytime you’re on the west coast, hit us up, we’d love to do a sit down and discuss. Check out the full story on Jezebel here.
Happy Thursday! I’m trying to include a cross-section of where real discussion is going on, whether people have a positive or negative outlook on the photos and the AA contest. Please email/tweet/post any original content I seem to be missing. I’d love to add any to the list, ESPECIALLY if they offer good counterpoints to my actions.
Lively and objective debates on the internet, FTW!
Also, you can still Vote here for one more day.
Or, instead of voting me up, send an email to the editor of your favorite fashion magazine/blog and request to see more of the talented models from the “contest!” Or, you know, do both. Really entirely up to you.
PS. Fashion Week starts tomorrow, right? Supposedly Dov Charney will be out and about in NYC. Just sayin’, if somebody wants to run into him and ask about the contest and mention me by name or photo and maybe capture it all on video I’d maybe possibly send them something cool in the mail or dosomethingcrazyIdunnojustathought. :)
