Acne Studios has confirmed rumors that the model who embodies the “ideal woman” is in fact a 12-year-old boy.
Frasse Johansson is the petite model seen teetering on high heels while wearing a $1,200 coat and $400 shades in Acne’s forthcoming campaign.
Yahoo Style’s senior editor Leeann Duggar thinks Acne went too far:
Sometimes, you know in your heart of hearts that something terrible is true. And yet, you still reserve the right to be annoyed when it’s actually confirmed before your eyes.
Today, we see proof of the old saw that, for fashion designers, the ideal woman’s body is, in fact, that of a pre-pubescent boy. WWD announced that the forthcoming fall campaign by fashion-forward Swedish brand Acne Studios will star Frasse Johansson, who is a 12-year-old boy.
Who is modeling very expensive clothes meant for adult women.
“Walking in high heels is so hard,” Johansson told WWD. “I don’t understand how anyone can walk in them.” Welcome to the patriarchy, kiddo, enjoy your blissfully brief stay.
