(May 2013 Vogue Netherlands; images from here)
I love the painted backdrops, in this Vogue editorial, with retro ensembles styled so beautifully by the great Grace Coddington.
Perfect style!! Love it
That models stunning! Epic styling too.
I love me a good pair of flare jeans!
Nice stzle. Great weekend.
Love the styling
PLEASE, SOMEONE FEED THAT MODEL.
I loved it!
I’m posting looks from Los Angeles and accessories:
I wore them the first time they were stylish. I agree with Susan, the model is extremely too thin. Are we going backwards, to the days of anorexic models and body image issues for our young women & our daughters? Please tell me NO.
Birkin will never not be back. These photos are beautiful! And to these comments, just because you are thin does not mean you have an eating disorder! Let’s only make positive comments.
The jeans are nice but sorry, the model is too thin, this is really an eyesore. If the fashion world starts again with the skinny crap, I’m out.
Love these images. And the model is gorgeous. It seems like only heavier women have issues with “skinny” models. And it’s unfair. No one would say, “Oh wow she’s too fat” if the model was plus size. Right?
Ouch- someone get the model a decent meal.I thought the fashion world was over this extreme and unhealthy skinny obsession!
I LOVE this styling. Perfect for a 70s inspired summer wardrobe!
I think the model is beautiful and it has nothing to do with whether I am heavy or light or whatever – it has to do with the fact that this world is full of different shapes and sizes and that one model of beauty (excuse the pun) doesn’t fit everything.

I thought Birkin was a pocketbook made by Hermes. To what does it refer here? I may be your only reader over 40… but I’m a fan. Thanks for enlightening me…
love it xx
Love the pants, but honestly, I would kill to have that girl’s body!
Love these casual looks, so lovely
The designs are AMAZING, but the model is way too skinny.
well well well denim at its best !!!
Sorry…. But the anorexia ruins it.
I chose not to repost this shoot in any of our feeds, though we like the styling, due to the model being painfully underweight.
It’s obvious to the discerning eye, i don’t understand why the insistence by anyone that this is not a problem weight issue.
Honestly, the story in my mind was that she had recently completed treatment and that she had been given the job in order to help her on a personal level and boost her confidence to continue rehabilitating herself. I couldn’t imagine any other scenario for her being hired. She must have att some point been good at her job and deserved the break.
This is what I’m thinking, i ‘m not looking at the clothes, so how could this have been a good casting decision…unless it’s the controversy desired.
Blessings to the beautiful girl.
All I can think of is the emotional pain involved, I can hardly focus on the clothing. Beautiful girl, no doubt. May she be well indeed.
Jane Birkin is such a great source of inspiration <3
I usaully sho at http://www.stylewhile.coma s you can try on clothes before buying them!
I love the clothes, the model not so much. Wow that girl needs food badly. Ick….
Rebecca states it beautifully and honestly.
I didn’t look at the clothes either (at first)…I was remembering a girl I went to high school with that was beautiful but anorexic. She had the same body. I emphasize the word ‘had’.
The wide leg style looks good on tall and thin people. But women with little curves and shorter heights can also pull off a wide leg style that has contrast lengthwise stripes on the front of the legs – the lengthwise stripes will elongate the legs and give thinner look.
I love to skip over the pictures in your blog every once in a while because most of the time they are just so beautiful and an aesthetic pleasure to look at. However, I really believe you shouldn’t include series like this one with a model that’s actually scary skinny (in a way I didn’t even recognize the clothes at first, I was too appalled by her looks). I know you didn’t pick her and you didn’t take the photos, but by including it in your blog you gave it your seal of approval so to speak. It’s not pretty, it actually takes a lot of potential glamour and style away, and of course it’s a dangerous role model. I think it’s great that nowadays not all models have to be THAT thin and I would find it awesome and really appreciate it if in the future you would make the body image promoted by a series a criterion of whether you feature it in your blog.
I think both Rebecca and Mona says it very well. I was actually a bit disappointed to see that you guys at Honestly would post pictures like this.
Thanks for an otherwise awesome blog.
Has Jane Berkin ever been gone?
