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

  4. Hahahahaha you so had me the entire time until the end. But yes, if this conversation had taken place, she would be the prime example. Absolutely loving her confidence and strength in these images, so stunning.

  5. Actually it did happen, only not in Paris and not in French. My son asked his grandmother what a certain term in Spanish meant (it meant hottie) and my mother replied by pointing out a cute young woman in a revealing outfit. After that he kept asking me who was a hottie and who wasn’t and pointing to different women, all this in the very loud voice that only a 3-year-old can manage. It was embarrassing to say the least!

  6. @thestyleconfessions – hahaha – amazing!! I knew I was on to something! Sounds like your son is training his eye from a young age…a future street style photographer or editor perhaps? 🙂

  9. Yep, that’s exactly what should have happened!

  10. How brave of her to carry this look off. She would cause a riot dressed like that in Melbourne (Australia).
    Good on her. She looks great, and I love your comments.
