Nancy Pelosi on Tea Party | Thylane Blondeau Fashion Obsession 

Boys Club | RedTracker

Finally A Few Words From Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi’s Battle Plan: Jobs, Exposing Tea Party Extremists to Voters The Daily Beast

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Manuel Balce Ceneta / AP PhotosHouse Minority Speaker agrees that Republicans won the debt ceiling battle in Washington. She insists Republicans didn’t win the debate among American people.

“I haven’t seen a poll yet that says, ‘Don’t tax the rich, we don’t want jobs, we just want to deal with this debt first, second, last, and always.’”

As Democrats move to portray Republicans as reckless extremists bent on destroying government, she articulates the problem this way:

“If it was about the deficit, we can deal with it. This is about destroying the public space. Everything from clean air and water to national parks and food safety and regulation will be compromised if the Tea Party gets the draconian cuts it wants.”

Pelosi also told the group of reporters — and we’re happy to hear her open her mouth again — that because she grew up with five older brothers, she understands how the game is played in the male-dominated House of Representatives.

Pelosi is committed to protecting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, but doesn’t sound as doctrinaire on entitlements as she’s been portrayed. She said the Simpson-Bowles deficit commission and the “Gang of Six” in the Senate are “far better than what I call the deficit hell that we’re going to be taken to here” if the Tea Party has its way. Each group included new revenues in its calculations.

Thylane Lena Rose Blondeau | A Supermodel in the Making AOC Body & Culture

We have joined the discussion around French model sensaation Thylane Blondeau and the fashion industry’s new ultra-youth obsession. At a time when the luxury market customer is growing older in average age, the fashion industry is obsessed with making superstars our of 10 and 12 year olds.

Hailee Steinfeld, 14, who was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in ‘True Grit’ is the new face of Prada’s Miu Miu Fall 2011 campaign.

The 12-year-old Elle Fanning, star of ‘Somewhere,’ has been the “girl to dress” in Hollywood, appearing on the red carpet wearing everything from Rodarte to Marc Jacobs.

After she appeared in a fashion spread in Interview, the magazine’s entertainment editor, Lauren Tabach-Bank, told the Daily Beast: “It sounds crazy to say someone has a good figure at 12—but she captures a youthful spirit … She’s not oversexed, but she can wear clothing well.”

Nyasha Maronhodze+ |Steven Meisel | Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 Campaign SN Living

As much as we love Marc Jacobs to death, Anne actually laughed when she first saw the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 campaign. With the exception of Nyasha, the girls looked like they were playing dressup in the big car. Either that or they are sugar babies to a wealthy guy who likes sweet young things.

‘It’s a very classic scenario, and of course it suggests travel, but I think we gave it a fresh, modern and sometimes a little bit naughty, tongue-in-cheek spin,’ says Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Marc Jacobs. ‘Steven Meisel and I met and decided we would do this wonderful story of beautiful vintage cars, little dogs and fresh-faced young women.’

Bottom line, Saudi Arabia is trying to make marrying child brides against the law with a prominent imam arguing that Islam embraces child brides; in Texas yesterday jurors listened to Warren Jeffs on tape tell a 12-year-old to take off her clothes and become his spiritual bride in an act others characterize as sexual assault and rape.

And fashion has gone gaga over sweet young things, too — as they always have — but now worse than ever, argue many who see all the attention to 10-year-old Thylane Blondeau as just too much.

For us, the entire subject is filled with complexity, asking ourselves if Blondeau is a sexual bombshell or grownups can’t help seeing her that way. Perhaps she is an old soul? And what do the French have to say about this situation?  Read on.
