Christian Louboutin puts out a line an ad campaign that acknowledges that “nude” isn’t another word for “light beige.” I don’t like nude shoes, I prefer statement footwear, but it’s good to see big names acknowledging that we come in a beautiful range of colors. And then arranging us in terrifying circles.
While I cannot afford his shoes at all, I like this campaign idea. Because I cannot express how much I TIRE of “nude” and “flesh toned” and “neutral” marketing. Just the other day at a department store the White bra saleswoman asked me do I want a “nude” bra. For what ma’am? When I said “it doesn’t match my skin” she stood there stunned. As if she never considered this before.
The normalcy and power of whiteness summarized in one fashion statement. -paradelle

People who shame people based on their bodies or what they wear can go explode.
People who say you’re ugly with or without makeup can go fuck a cactus.
