To those of you who have teenage daughters, sisters or nieces.
Who are positive teenager idols at the moment? Body image wise.
My little sister who is 13 is here visiting us in Paris. As part of us ‘bonding’ she’s been showing me what artists she likes.
She has this big obsession at the moment that she thinks she is fat. She is not, she is a normal teenager, but keeps calling herself fat all the time.
Most of the girls she’s showed me, like Ariana Grande for example, are really skinny and look unhealthy.
I want to show her what other normal girls look like and that they are still cool and look pretty. But I don’t know what’s cool for teenage girls.
Not trying to make any reference to your OITNB show.
I’m actually talking about the fashion statement.
Everyone looks good in black. And it’s the Parisian statement by excellence.
When I was a teen I had my punk rebel years so obviously my closet was all black.
After I outgrew it I went into a quest to but everything I could in color. Just to bring diversity to my closet. My mom started buying a lot of pink for me. Pink and I are not friends anymore. I wore a logic pink because of her.
The thing is I don’t really own any black clothing anymore. And I want to! So from now on I’ll buy black everything! I started today with black jeans. They are awesome!

By the Daily Prophet’s Gossip Correspondent, Rita Skeeter
“But when word swept the campsite and stadium that a certain gang of infamous wizards (no longer the fresh-faced teenagers they were in their heyday, but nevertheless recognisable) had arrived for the final, excitement was beyond anything yet seen. As the crowd stampeded, tents were flattened and small children mown down. Fans from all corners of the globe stormed towards the area where members of Dumbledore’s Army were rumoured to have been sighted, desperate above all else for a glimpse of the man they still call the Chosen One…”
I need this to be handy on my blog.
