Harper's Bazaar China: Hot N' Cold

Thursday, May 30, 2013

I was kinda liking this photo shoot at first. It showcased gorgeous Burberry Prorsum metallic coats, Stella McCartney, Dolce Gabbana & Louis Vuitton dresses, melted ice cream cones, towering lollipops, and delectable sundaes. You know! All the stuff I LOVE! Then my little sugar-filled fantasy bubble popped! What destroyed it? A CLOWN!!! I know their are nice clowns out there, but for the most part I hate frickin' clowns! Omg'd, I blame it on Stephen King's movie IT. I can't stand them! This one looks like a short, pervert clown! Ugggh! Yuck! Did you spot him? They couldn't have picked a better title for this! The fashion is HOT, but that damn clown left me COLD. HaHaHa  They should've put a really nice, tall & handsome, ice cream truck driver in this. You know the one's with the little bow tie and fake smile! That would've been so much nicer HaHaHa. Do clowns give you the creepers or is it just me?

I absolutely love this! It's one of the prettiest, most fun campaigns I've seen in a long time.

Cee said...

This is such a gorgeous editorial... until that clown shows up! I've never really been anti-clown, per se, but they definitely don't qualify as high fashion and that model just looks so emasculated with his blue hair and lack of clothing, it's really distracting :S

What a fun editorial! The clown/muscle man is odd but the styling is still great. Hello from Europe dear! Woohoo for some wifi!

It's certainly a fun shoot and I love those Louis Vuitton dreses. Usually I don't mind circus clowns too much but I have to agree with you - I really don't like this one!

Tina Bradley said...

Totally agree, Kim!!! Great fashion, creepy clown! Not all clowns creep me out--that one sure does, tho'! :) Happy "little Friday!" T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Natalia A said...

Don't like the clown either... He makes me feel uncomfortable. I am probably under the "It" influence, too.
I think it would be much better not to have any kind of guy in it at all. :) Why did they think it's nice to have one crawling around the ice-cream van on the first photo? Did he forget to put on his clothes in the morning or something? Or got stuck? Odd, very odd.
Love the feel of this ed, though. Very happy and summery. :)

haha I agree with you Kim - nice editorial but that clown is just weird....in the photo where he is "driving" the van he looks evil! Very different to a normal clown.

You make me smile! You have a fair point about clowns. I had a clown doll which I gave to my sister and then she gave it back to me and so on because we both found it so creepy.

Lauren said...

Wow. I really like this shoot! It's really unexpected!

Oh, Kim! You are too fun. I have completely enjoyed you since we found each other and started following each other. You are such a FUN blogger. Thanks for your fun and SINCERE comments. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

These Asians don't look too Asian. I love Asians features. They are trying to look too Western? These poses are amazing layouts tho. That's for sure!!!!!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

You know what? I didn't even see the clown. Is that cool or odd? I went back to seeeeee the pics more and then I found him. I did notice a guy holding a selling box around his neck hiding his speedo barely. Ya, he is more like a pedophiliac weirdo than a clown. Yuck is right!!!!!!!!

GoldenGirls said...

Omgosh wow!! I love this!! Hugs from Cali! xx The Golden Girls

Sara Gerard said...

LOL!! OMG, Kim, you are JUST like my friend Sara, she HATES clowns too! They could have left the clown out, he makes it tacky!

I totally agree with you about clowns Kim! I can't stand them either and this one looks like a total creeper. Maybe he wouldn't be so bad if he was wearing some clothes and a bag over his head lol. Other than clown, the concept of this editorial is really fun!

I miss you too girl and I hope to back soon. AT is the cutest! I think you were referring to Kitty Zhang Yuqi in the green dress. Her Ulyanna Sergeenko gown was truly fabulous!

bridechic said...

i've been terrified of clowns since childhood. Nice to know i'm not alone. This editorial does have a digital paint quality to it that makes it seem sureal

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Oh my! It's totally grand. I love it.

Jessica said...

I feel the exact same way. I find clowns to be creepy. Otherwise these photos would be great.

That clown sure is creepy Kim. You are right about that. He unfortunatly sticks out like a sore thumb in the shoots. Sometimes i have a hard time understanding high fashion. Too complicated, i better go back to grow my veggies, bake pies and ride a horse...ha.

Oh horror! The clown! I am glad to hear there is someone else that shares my fear of clowns, they are sooo creepy. And yes, it stemmed from IT too. Other than that, the pink fringed dress is adorable

Jill said...

I didnt notice the clown either! I love that there is so much going on in the pics like a "Where's Waldo" book! These chicks red wigs are putting my red hair to shame! Bam! It's all kind of awesome in an exaggerated way.

Hey Kim, Hahaha, I agree with you and I had to look closely to find the freakin clown. Lol. I'm not a fan of clowns either. They are creepy. I blame it on the Chinese tv series. All the clowns are serial killers in them. Yuck! Have a great weekend! Talk to you soon.

Margarita Bloom said...

I have to agree Kim, I do not like clowns at all and this one looks creep-tastic. Ever since I saw Killer Clowns from Outer Space...yep, just don't like clowns. Eek... I do love the pictures though and I love the idea of an ice cream guy totes better!

The Dainty Dolls House said...

Ewwww...what is that clown man doing there, I don't like it, haha! He looks ridiculous, hahaha. But, the girls, wow...they look marvellous!! If I was the guy, I would have asked for a raise having to look like that, hahahaha!! Brilliant!! x

Nails My Dreams said...

Hahahaha. You are so right! I hate clowns too and I think there's nothing more scarier than a perverted one. *giggles*

Jo said...

You are not the only one, Kim. I hate clowns too and this clown here sure look freaky. I love all the rainbow colours in this series of shoot. Not the clown though.

Are you referring to the movie called "It"?

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

Amazing hairstyle and color, this is so #verysweetblog

Joie Fatale said...

Dude...
The clown practically ruins it...CREEPY!
