So I’m sitting on the plane from Chicago to LA listening to Metric and desperately trying to tune out the little devils sitting in front of me. I have never seen such bad parenting in my entire life. I swear the more time I spend in airports lately touring, the more I notice how many bad parents there are … “Oh little Bobby do you want grilled chicken or steak for dinner hunny? Or would you rather both? Mommy can make you both!” … barf! And you wonder why these kids act like spoiled little monsters!
My parents made dinner and I ate it. There was no long-winded discussion needed for a 5 year old’s sudden whim for a nice hanger steak instead of fried chicken. When I went on planes I sat in my seat with my seatbelt fastened and colored in my Barbie coloring book. I didn’t put the tray table up and down and up and down until the person in front of me got a stress ulcer. Now I love kids but I swear to g-d if one thing could make me not hold back it is airport child monsters. But anyways, I will focus on the positive, which is the fact of why I am on this plane in the first place. And that is touring!
Caroline Trentini was born on July 6th, 1987 in Rio Grande de Sul, Brazil. Caroline was brought up in a single parent home after the passing of her father and was unexpectedly discovered at the age of 13 while walking down the street. This was no ordinary occurrence because she was discovered by the same model scout that scooped up Gisele Bundchen, perhaps an omen of the enormous success Trentini would have in her later modeling career. The discovery sparked a move to the model town of Sao Paolo and eventually New York City where Trentini couldn’t speak English but was fluent in the language of modeling.
The latest issue of V magazine sees Iris Strubegger, better known as the face of Valentino, working the androdgynous look to perfection in this dark editorial.
Photographed by Willy Vanderperre, the Austrian model ignored the summer temperatures to preview Fall fashions including a fur coat and thigh-high rain boots topped off, bizarrely, by a pair of white fishnet tights over the top. The shoot, entitled A Touch of Class, is a high-fashion take on an aristocratic uniform mixing the masculine ‘hunter’ style of the rainboots and high-waisted pants with the glamour of the oversized shoulder pads and dress coats.
