maria cornejo takes the high road

Figuratively that is, on the issue of model safety. After her Zero + Maria Cornejo NYFW show, she addressed the Hervé Léger slip and slide yesterday, remarking:

“That’s just sad, you know? It’s boys dressing women. I’m sorry – they don’t have to wear the fucking shoes. It’s quite abusive. Because, you know what? We have to run around and walk, and nobody has a chauffeur waiting for them outside. And it really pisses me off and makes me really angry because it’s that boys thing about making women into victims. You know, it’s not nice.”

And I suppose she can say those things without sounding hypocritical because she accessorized her fall/winter collection with flats and low wedges, instead of following the eight-inch platform trend. But perhaps she should share her opinion with Miuccia Prada, whose show last season took the cake for models falling on the runway.
