Target's Alexander McQueen Go International line turns out to have an interesting model choice for their advertisements. The clothes -- which hit Target stores next month -- are modeled by a familiar blonde: the Blythe doll. You know, the one with blonde hair, blue doe-eyes and bangs? As reported by Fashionista.com:
No, it’s not a Barbie of Gwyneth’s mom, but a certain type of doll that was sold in the US only for the year of 1972, famous for her eyes that changed color whenever you pulled the string that came out of her back.
No word on whether this was a cost-cutting measure or a way to tickle the cost-cutting masses, but we bet it’ll be a hit on blogs everywhere right away.
I'm assuming that Mr. McQueen and Target thought this would be a cute & clever way to advertise their fashions. I, however, think it's a bit creepy.
