Trend Watch: Himbos Are The New Must-Have Fashion Accessory
According to New York magazine, the male version of bimbos, himbos, are the new high-fashion trend. Chanel’s taste maker, Karl Lagerfeld, says the must-have accessory in ads are prop boy toys. Just check out his own luvah Baptiste Giabiconi, pictured here, being strung along by Jerry Hall. And on her other arm, she’s got that glamorous white Chanel bracelet— outfit complete! Of his angle, Mr. Lagerfeld told WWD:
“It’s very simple. They put the girls in a more lifestyle situation. Lonely girls can be a little sad in a fashion story. They dress not only for other girls, but also to please men. The popularity is sudden because there are a few new faces.”
Yes, bring on the fresh hot dudes! Hey, I’m a feminist, but I’m also egalitarian. I have to admit, I’m kind of excited about this objectification of men (as you might have been able to tell by the underwear models slideshow). And now high-end designers are telling me I’m not alone. Is this trend a sign that women are finally earning their market share by having their half-naked mantasies photographed? Feast your eyes on more of this tasty man-candy trend, after the jump!
From Dolce & Gabbana’s boxing ring to Saks Fifth Avenue’s basketball game to the infamous Calvin Klein denim orgy, fashionistas are finding that himbos in ads SELLS. And it’s simple why — straight chicks are drawn to fine dudes. It’s just like how beer brings in more loot when some busty wench is serving it up. Maybe advertisers are just now realizing advertising works the same way for women as it does for men? No need for a double standard here. We’re not looking for the meaning of life when we’re shopping through Vogue for the perfect pair of do me pumps. Put 12 studs in their skivvies around them and I’ll think those are the ones for me!
We’re all going to look at something that attracts our attention — “attract” being the operative word — and sex sells. So please, quit your gender jibber-jabber and give it to me — some nice-looking packages wrapped in gorgeous garments.
