    Mercifully I did not see my dad's family's tartan among the absolute travesty (leave sporrans the fuck alone VS!!) that was the tartan segment. Whew. Normally I see at least one look I like right away but this year... they've outdone themselves. Truly.

    why are yall still operating under the assumption people care about your average vsfs model the way they care about kendall and the hadids is it irritating? sure does it make the most sense for shameless capitalists like vs? yes it's that simple

    you all can be super cruel lmao. take it from someone who has been on both sides of the spectrum, i was a plump (fat, even, definitely) kid and then developed an eating disorder (and anxiety disorder) in my teens and dropped a fuckton of weight in a very short period of time a few years ago after going through severe repercussions from my ptsd. while i don't agree with robyn's message here in particular, and agree with what clauds and whoever else were saying about not minding the idealised bodies at vsfs, some of you are being very purposefully obtuse about the state of the world. when i was fat, a severe health problem of mine wasn't diagnosed, which is very common. my eating disorder, a real, debilitating disease, (which i still feel the effects of, why do you think i'm into the twig thin kpop girls?) was celebrated because it meant i wasn't fat anymore. societal expectations have lead people to prefer thin bodies. i definitely prefer thin bodies. most people do. but you cannot argue that thin people have suffered the same mental and physical abuses as fat / obese ones have. stores like lane bryant (is that what it's called?) or simply be in the uk are necessary because every other store refuses to stock larger sizes even as they become the new standard, especially in the us. when i was fat i dreaded shopping because i would be relegated to the ugly sections. i didn't understand why they couldn't just make the same clothes in bigger sizes. it's like how people have made clubs just for women -- because there are already clubs just for men. in an idealised world everyone shares everything, but when the biggest h&m on the high street goes is a 14, the void is going to be filled. when vs don't do sizes bigger than a dd cup, the void is going to be filled and those women are going to be catered to and whinging about it when you're thin makes no sense because you're already catered to everywhere else. you all talk about how unhealthy kelly is, and i agree, she seems to have orthorexia, but then turn around and share comments calling robyn a pig? that made me feel like shit and my ed's been in recovery for four years now. calling people pigs is dehumanising and disgusting, and just because you disagree with them? i still believe that the vsfs is exclusive and idealised but i used to use candice's arms as thinspo, and if models are developing body image and exercise and eating disorders whilst working for them, then what the fuck is happening to consumers? take two seconds to think and try to understand where fat people come from. i do, especially cause i was fat. it's tempting now to say 'this isn't my fight anymore' but with my ed, it absolutely is, and i owe it to the bullied child i was as a kid. don't make this place like skinny gossip. we all have a responsibility to make others feel loved and accepted regardless of their body type, which is what robyn was getting at, i think. shame them for views that demonise thin women or contribute to their eating disorders, but don't shame them for factors they may not be able to control. it's that easy. kindness is so easy.

    I've got a bit of an OT question, but I'm hoping someone can help me out. Does anyone know why Gavin Bond stopped shooting backstage at the VSFS? Everything he touched was gold. I'm hoping the return to NYC means he'll return too.

    She has her repackaged album coming out this Friday with some new songs (Want To is a sleeper hit in the UK), plus she's promoting Electricity. And if VS is going to capitalise on the KPop buzz she did a song with Blackpink (arguably the biggest kpop girl group globally right now, versus Twice in Korea and Japan) on the repackage and that would be a howler of a choice. Her tour schedule doesn't start up again until December. So it's possible she could perform. Does she fit into the equation based on other performers I / everyone thinks are more likely? Nah. I don't think so. But after last year's chaotic mishmash, I shouldn't rule anything out.

    Big fan of Florence but 1. VS are not going to invite her to perform a song about her eating disorder. Come on. 2. She's above VS. Truly. Florence Welch + the VSFS are a horrible fit. Now watch her get the show because everything I've predicted for this year's show has been wrong. Just because someone is a great performer or you like their music doesn't make them perfect for the VSFS, people. Please. We're talking Middle America here. Middle America loves Maroon 5 and the Voice and shit. I do daydream on this shitshow BTS would cause, though. My friend lives next to the O2 and getting updated on them / their fans has been hilarious.
