I recently stumbled across an article about actress Helen Mirren in Vanity Fair, asking whether or not she had pulled a page from Angelina Jolie’s book, and let children ‘scribble’ all over her dress. Helen managed to look absolutely stunning, elegant and classy, in a way that only the regal can when wearing children’s artwork. After that, I simply needed to see the rest of Dolce and Gabbana’s collection.
My jaw hit the floor.
Let’s set aside the fact for now that Vanity Fair called children’s art SCRIBBLES. Art is art people, and calling a child’s work scribbles, you are demeaning that child and letting them think their work is less than worthy and has to be advanced to fit into your couture box.
But Dolce and Gabbana seems to GET IT. They are having fun, celebrating children’s art in a classy way, and reminding us all to let our hair down a bit. Not everything needs to be so black and white, so inside the lines – so have some fun with what you wear!!!
I don’t know about you, but I think I want to get my kids involved in something I am personally wearing too. Why not? Talk about making your kids feel LOVED.
