press release of the week: Disney hires grown man to tell your little girl how to be pretty
Cuz sometimes the stuff that ends up in my in-box is too good, bad, weird, interesting, or otherwise notable not to share. And also because I’m having fun picking on Disney tonight.
DISNEY AND CELEBRITY HAIR STYLIST KEN PAVES ANNOUNCE CREATIVE COLLABORATION FOR DISNEY FAIRIES
ANAHEIM, CALIF. (August 20, 2011) – Celebrity hair stylist Ken Paves and Disney announced today at D23 Expo, the ultimate Disney fan event, a creative collaboration with Disney Toon Studios and Disney Consumer Products for Disney Fairies including participation in an upcoming film and a personal care product line, both releasing next year. To celebrate the collaboration, Paves was joined by Peggy Holmes, director of the new full-length animated Disney Fairies film, Secret of the Wings, releasing fall 2012.
“Inspiration from the women in my life has motivated my life-long passion to redefine the meaning of true beauty and encourage girls of all ages to embrace their own unique style,” Paves explains. “I am thrilled to collaborate on Disney Fairies for several exciting projects that will encourage girls to be who they really are through a diverse group of strong characters that show how beauty takes many different forms.”
Built around one of Disney’s most famous and beloved characters, Tinker Bell, her fairy friends and the enchanted world of Pixie Hollow, Disney Fairies inspires girls to discover their own talents and build meaningful friendships.
Emphasis mine. You can be assured that the beauty that can take many forms can only be achieved via expensive product, which Disney will sell to your children. Because your six-year-old needs to be thinking about her unique style.
