No, Mappy is not the “Japanese Tavi”. But considering the similarities between the two, it is understandable that many would want to draw to that conclusion. “We have *totally* different style. I’m not really into what she wears now.” Asserted Mappy, now in 7th grade in a Tokyo-area school, while we talked over cafe hors続きはこちら|Read the rest here続きはこちら|Read the rest here

最近ネットで出回った”世界各国の美の定義”をPhotoshopで検証した記事がありました。ちょっとおかしいのもあるけど、インテンションに興味深くて取り上げます。 日本バージョンはまだ出てこないかなーと思いながら画面を下にスクロールしながら想像してみた。ラウンド型のフェイスラインに派手目のチーク、アイラインで目を強調、ちょっとだけアヒル口、つけまつげ、カラコン、髪はオレンジぽい茶色で少しウェーブの効いた肩くらいの長さかな。 “美の定義”はとても面白いトピックだと思う。上記でミーシャがイメージしたのは今日本でいちばんポピュラーな女性像 (たとえば、ローラさん)。でも外国で成功しているのはこういう女性ではない。だって、外国人が思う日本人女性の美(男性にも言えることだけど)というのは、この女性像とはかけ離れているから。ファッション界ではその傾向はいっそう強まります。さて、どんな人が”ビューティフル”で、人々の注目を集めるんだろう?

Never grow up! If there were a “Neverland” on Earth it would certainly be Japan. Here, you can be an adult, but that doesn’t mean you have to dress like one. Lolita was an answer to that, but another genre has taken off and it’s far less Marie Antoinette and more Popeye and Olive Oyl.
