This isn’t a secret that pop culture drives Halloween costume choices. This year was marked by Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus VMA’s performance. However, I’ve been inspired by another popular character: Daenerys Targaryen (Khaleesi) from Game of Throne.

Mind The Thigh Gap!

Thigh gap is the latest young women obsession. What’s the thigh gap? This is the noticeable space between your upper thighs when you stand with your feet together. Teen girls are influenced by “ideal” (photoshopped) women in the media, they starve themselves to look like those women.

Doctors and nutritionists are very concerned about the phenomenon since this physical feature do not have anything to do with diet or calories burned. If few thin adults women have slender legs and happen to have a thigh gap, fight against nature and morphology is a lost battle.

Indeed, the thigh gap is a preteens physical feature. This is the result of body changes by the time wider hips and pelvis coexist with childhood thighs.

This obsession became a barometer of success in our teen’s mind. Teen girls are proud to post and share their thigh gap on social media. I even found a wikihow website with stupid crazy tips on getting a thigh gap involving recommendations to take birth control pills.

I never and won’t ever have a thigh gap and that’s okay since I don’t plan to become a Victoria’s Secret model or cast as SpongeBob stunt double.

Eat clean and exercise… do not worry about the space between your thighs girlfriends.

Jeremy Scott for Adidas

This week, we had a first look at the Spring /Winter 2013 Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals. The bright stA of the collection is without a doubt the “Pink Poodle” sneakers:  A pretentious fuzzed-out pink on pink dog with a pair of Linda Farrow JS Wings sunglasses.

On your wishlist or not ?!

Jeremy Scott by Adidas

Perfect time to learn more about Jeremy and Adidas, don’t you think?

A Pop Star

Jeremy Scott is an American fashion designer, who has often been dubbed the Jeff Koons of fashion for his references to Pop-culture icons and has built his reputation for outrageous designs favored by pop stars and celebrities.

In June 2008 Adidas launched a collaboration collection of footwear and apparel by Scott. The shoes became instant iconic bestsellers for the brand. The wing high tops and teddy bear shoes are popular with hip hop stars as well as with the general fashion public.

Jeremy Scott’s collection for the sportswear giant Adidas, Jeremy Scott for Adidas features apparel and footwear. Working closely with The Keith Haring foundation, Scott also created a shoe and track suit bearing Haring’s graphic art. A special project known as AdiColor, a collaborative venture with Adidas.

The Big Oops

Moreover, I think Scott is an artist whose work is not understood as last month, Adidas sneakers designed by him had been pulled from production. The $350 shoes, called the JS Roundhouse Mid, were to come with yellow cartoonish rubber shackles attached to them. This immediately sparked an online backlash, with accusations of racist undertones on the Facebook page and Twitter account for Adidas. 

Few days after, Adidas released a statement denying that there was any racist motivation behind the shoe and that the design was “nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery”.

Scott added that the “Shackles” sneakers were in fact inspired by My Pet Monster, a toy from his childhood.
