TO CELEBRATE, WE'RE HAVIN' RIBS Tollerod The fashion industry can go on as much as it likes about models looking more and more like "normal" people, but we were at the BCBG show on Friday and saw Norwegian model Siri Tollerod's ribs—from behind! Up until the point she walked the runway in a comely postage stamp-sized cream bustier dress, we were thinking, yes, this show is indeed, as the notes directed, about "both modern femininity and strength that comes with a confident sense of abandon!" Our reverie came to an abrupt halt though when we saw every single articulation of her back bone.
Of course this won't be the last time you'll see Siri (not Suri! Siri!) this week. After emerging as the next big thing after the spring shows last year, Siri is a casting agent's wet dream. Could be, of course, that at barely 20, she just hasn't "filled out" yet. Either that or her handlers at Trump have been keeping her on an extremely tight leash. We're going to make it our mission to smuggle some bread to her backstage before the week is up.
