Maria Grazia Chiuri, 52, first female Creative Director at Dior in its 70 year history, makes a strong bid for our ‘Gormless Feminist of the Month’ award

Our thanks to Mike P for this, a piece in the Telegraph by Kate Finnigan, Fashion Features Director, titled, “Why I won’t be praising the girls in my life for looking pretty next year – and neither should you”. Yes, that title makes sense. It’s not as if fashion – Ms Finnigan’s sole purpose at the paper, presumably  – appeals to women’s narcissism, or their wish to be more attractive. Mike writes:

The full item is hiding behind a paywall, but I’ve seen enough.

‘Enough’ includes a photo of a miserable-looking emaciated model, wearing a T-shirt printed with what must be the most gormless title ever given to a book:


The genius behind the ‘concept’ is Maria Grazia Chiuri, 52, the first female Creative Director in Dior’s 70-year history. We thanks Ms Chiuri for her strong bid to become a Gormless Feminist of the Month.

Hold the front page, I’ve just had a concept. T-shirts with the logo:


If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    Here is a finger wagging harridan attempting (and failing to get) the moral high ground – at the same time telling US what WE shouldn’t do while ALSO making a living out of promoting that very thing!

    Such is her contempt for her readership she imagines they will not spot, or even understand the contradiction involved.

    Those who live in straw houses shouldn’t throw stones.. – er -, if you see what I mean.

    So short of ideas is the first female Creative (creative, if you please…!) Director in Dior’s 70 years, that the best she can ‘create’ is to jump on a failing and broken bandwagon the wheels of which have already begun to come off.

    2/10. Must try harder.
