Say it ain't so, Donatella.
While 'everyday fashionistas' in all shapes and sizes impatiently await the 'real girl' debut of the luxe style for less Versace for H and M style, reports have surfaced that the fashion mongul favors professional models AKA 'skinny gals' for her collection.
The New York Daily News reports that designer recently cancelled a photo shoot with 'real women' who did not fit the company's branding. Hmmmm. Prior to the whole 'branding' excuse, the paper reports that the a H&M rep stated that 'Donatella will likely not approve shooting the collection on real women.' These 'real women' ranged in sizes from US2 to US6.
Hey, we're all for designer's keeping in the integrity of their brands and its the job of professional models to model these clothes. However, with a guest design line for H&M, will customers really be confused at to the image of the brand just because real women are modeling dresses made for real women?
We are pretty sure this won't affect the sales of the coveted Versace for H and M collection. In fact, we're pretty sure fashionistas, skinny and real all over, are prepping their strategies for getting their hands on this collection as soon as the doors open.
Get ready for Black Saturday! Luxe style for less.
Oh, by the way, what is the definition of a 'real woman' anyway? If real women fall between the sizes 2 and 6, what's the size range for unreal women? Who would you love to see model these dresses? Real women or skinny models?
