Angelina Jolie is about to start killin’ it (literally?) in the new live-action Disney adaptation of Maleficent, and what better way to capitalize on a movie she already made millions on than by releasing costumes for kids to go along with it?
That’s right: Angie and designer Stella McCarthy
The line is aimed at kids from 4 – 14 years old (I’m sorry, but no 14-year-old is going to wear that shit) and includes sandals, t-shirts, princess dresses and sneakers. The cheapest thing in this range is $75 and the most expensive is $185, which is INSANE. Sorry, kid. I’m not spending $185 on a piece of shit you’ll rip, ruin or get tired of in a month’s time. No thanks.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Disney growing up, as was my mother, and I grew up watching all the films like most kids did,” said McCartney, who has collaborated with Disney in the past with a costume jewelry line for Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010 and who featured Disney characters in her fall 2009 ad campaign. “When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance.”
I love Stella McCartney – her clothes, her perfume, sign me up. But this is some serious bullshit. They’re kids! I know I’m not really the target consumer, considering I’m not filthy rich nor do I have small kids, but damn. I’m sure it’ll sell like hotcakes, anyway. They should have did this shit for Frozen – really missed out there.
