Tuxedo Touches Give Skinny Jeans a Fresh Spin (?)

Skateboarding in Teen Vogue

Yeah, I don’t know what the hell that means either, but it’s a direct quote from the November issue of Teen Vogue, which has a crush on skateboarders. They’re so dreamy, you know?

Two instances of skateboarding in Teen Vogue’s November 2006 issue. First we’ve got a fashion spread with a puzzling tip for skinny jeans. Skateboarders wear skinny jeans, so they shot it at Owl’s Head skatepark in Brooklyn NY, and they even mention it in the spread. It doesn’t look nearly so cheery on Concrete Disciples.

Next we have teen athlete and sponsored skateboarder Alexis Schempp who is reportedly 13 years old. I want to preface this next comment with a disclaimer. I don’t mean this in a pervy sort of way, but she doesn’t look 13. It’s like they pasted a woman’s head on a teenager. Hmm. Schempp? I’m sure she never hears any Three Stooges jokes.

Hey. It’s Kirsten Dunst. I hear she rules in Marie Antoinette. Wow, I need to study up on the layering effect of minis, shorts, boots and tights. How did they know?

  1. The way alexis stands on her deck, isn’t that the official “i can’t skate, but i like to pretend” stance?

  2. Wait a minute, are you doubting the journalistic integrity of Teen Vogue magazine? Well that takes some nerve!

    I gotta give her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe because my first skateboard was actually my mother’s too. It’s true!

  3. It would be out of the question for them to actually put a picture of her skating… This has many levels of irritation.

  4. Yeah, it’s typical, but then they couldn’t show her all made up. At least they showed her. I don’t know that the Teen Vogue has much of a crossover with girls that actually skate.

  5. Jon Benet Ramsey was actually an adult midget undercover for the FBI in the bible belt. Probably assasinated by religious-right deathsquads. Another example of supposed children made up like painted hussies.

  6. Alexis Schempp apparently is a real skater. well, a real street skater anyway. But still cute as a button!

  7. But still cute as a button! … as her grandmother would say. I’ll bet she loves that.

    Maybe she’ll read this and we can get an interview out of her.

  8. why is hating on dis gurl? is it da fact a female can skate dat bothers guys?? idk but it seems lyk it to me

  9. i meant why is everyone hating on her? my bad..

  10. We’re not hating on her. We’re dissing the editorial choices made by the magazine. In fact we’re hoping she contacts us for an interview.

  11. All of you need to SHUT-UP thats like my best friend i actually know her unlike you guys who know nothing about her


  12. Oh my god! Like, you need to, like actually like read the post. Then you’ll like totally fer sure realize we’re not like making fun of her at all.

    Google her and you’ll see Alexis has been skating for some time and doing well. – Ari Macropolis also shot the photo – Skate history right there.

  14. People! We’ve already established that she actually skates. What we are making fun of is the editorial decisions made by Teen Vogue magazine, and not Alexis Schempp. Alexis… still waiting to hear from you directly!

    i think i’ll go watch “fat man on a curb” about 10 more times.

  18. Kieran, don’t be a putz. Nobody said she couldn’t skate. In fact everyone is saying she can.

  19. kilwag, why argue wth the mentally challenged?

  20. Too many words. If we wanted to read, we’d go to the library.

  21. uh shut up people i known alexis all my life and you guys are just mean people expect kerain and christina

  22. why are people sticking up for someone who isn’t being made fun of?
    oh yeah, because our educational system is failing miserably.

  23. Alexis is the real deal. Make no mistake. I have seen her skate from day one. She has a good work ethic and will continue to thrive in the sport. Skater girl indeed.

    Girl skaters rock; it takes alot of time and commitment to get good at skateboarding…BUT…lets not start with the whole ” u r not even sponsurd” garbage. i know some peopel who have been skating for years, and are able to do everything from handrails to handplants but they will never land a sponser because of job, school, location, etc. No offense to Alexis, but if she wants to come to Okinawa I will totally take her up on the game of S-K-A-T-E challenge. How’s mini-ramp sound? Paper, scissors, rock for trick set. You down?

  29. I bet dat “SKATER” cant even skate if not why is she not skatin on the cover !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This thread still cracks me up for the simple fact that my parody of these retards was completely lost on them.
    I blatently mocked them and not a one picked up on it, in fact NEW RETARDS are still posting the same incoherent babble.
    Great.Our future genre of skaters comes complete with a teenage lobotomy, fuckin brats. c u latr, sk8tr kids
