You know that Seinfeld episode where Elaine finds that mannequin of herself? Well, it totally just happened to me!!! Today in Paris my lord and saviour Yvette happened, HAPPENED upon the newest thing to hit the Lanvin campaign- OUR VERY OWN FLAGSHIP STORE WINDOWS which feature not one but TWO STELLAS! This is amazing for several reasons that I will cite below.

1. There are two of me in Paris right now! Lately the universe has been beckoning me to Paris and through the "lets go to Paris" conversations and "come to Paris" tweets I've been convinced I would end up there sooner or later. Things always happen to me not quite as planned so yes, I did indeed make it to Paris and here is the plaster proof. That's plaster of Paris mind you (sorry, I had to).

2. If we were friends in high school you know how rad it is that there a mannequin of me, err.. two rather. Gwen La Femme would be proud.

3. I get mistaken in real life for a mannequin constantly. Really, it happens at least a couple times a month and always when I'm standing still. I've coined the term "mannequin realness" and damn it, this is more mannequin realness than I ever thought I'd be serving up.

They got my extra pale skin tone right. I wonder if they'll let me keep one of those "Stella" wigs after the season ends? Also I believe this is a photo of the unfinished window. I can't wait to see it all come together this week!

  1. OMG! How creepy and how wonderful all at once. You totally need to go see them! I used to work in costumes at a theme park, and was mistaken for a mannequin/attraction a number of times. People can be so dumb :)

  2. That's awesome! You definitely have to go to Paris now!

  3. that's awesome! I want to check by myself (parisian here).

    The the ancient French brand Lanvin you sometimes was

    only a little bit of thought between ordinary and overhangs. What is

    the mind? Perhaps in front of the mirror every morning and evening

    looked at which minutes. If so, we will understand a little more, Dress

    up yourself a little more. In fact, the beauty is also an

    accomplishment - to keep your skin while also nourishing the soul; with

    costumes, but also can play sort out a more positive, happy, healthy

    state of mind. I hope the experts talk about dressing can provide us

    with some tips about the "mind", advocating the pursuit of beauty and

    love every day lifestyle.Lanvin bag allows you to

    add more living color, Lanvin handbag make you

    more vigor of youth. http://www.lanvinhandbagstore.com/
