Mom, What’s A Hottie?
In Paris outside the S/S 2012 Balmain show…I saw a young French boy walking past, holding his mother’s hand. He appeared fascinated with the crowd that was exiting the show…and he seemed to be listening in to random conversations and taking it all in…until suddenly, I saw a look of confusion come over his face…and he turned to his mother and asked her (in French of course), “Mom, what’s a hottie?” They stopped walking…and then, with great certainty, she looked her son straight in the eye…and pointed to the girl whose photos you see here…and said, “There son, THERE is a hottie.” He nodded…and smiled knowingly…and they walked on. (OK actually this didn’t happen. But it should have.) x
