    I didn’t like the HuffPo article about the 9 most fashionable characters. It felt more like the “9 characters whose clothing best fit their archetype.”

    I’m surprised you guys didn’t add a certain article in the New Yorker that talks about the fashion and business practices of Forever 21…plus they link back to an article on College Fashion…

    That Kendall and Kylie link was appalling.

    Referring back to that article, the author was truly suck up of the highest order. They probably didn’t write anything themselves, and what did it mean “If history has taught us anything, they’d probably be good at that (acting in a possible live action adaptation of the book), too”. Their entire lives, they have been good at what, exactly?

    What Kendall and Kylie (and their momager, publicists, etc) are doing are just riding on the coattails of “Hunger Games” and “Divergent” and milking the money of parents with impressionable teenagers. Their originality can also be put in question.

    Regarding the author’s apparent impression of Kendall and Kylie’s “unstoppableness”, their marketing strategists are the ones who are REALLY unstoppable.

    The article refered to them as “published authors”. What a laugh. Nowadays, people like Stephanie Meyer can be called “published authors”, yes, “NBD” at all, it was right about THAT.

    Sites like TeenVoge may benefit their readers by stopping its publication with this kind of drivel about people who became famous from making sex tapes or from being friends/related to people who made sex tapes, and instead, publishing something which actually mattered. The world can afford to give less attention to this kind of mindless bollocks. This is a partial and true embodiment of what’s wrong with modern society’s media and “teen culture”
