Year of the Living Dolls, Part III

Are Bratz dolls partly to blame for young women dressing (and sometimes behaving) like tramps? Catherine Bennett doesn't think so. We don't either - we're in agreement with Bonaduce that it's probably Typhoid Mary Paris Hilton. [Guardian UK]

Speaking of dolls, what the fuck is up with this extremely creepy ad for Dolce & Gabbana's D&G line? [D&G]

Even proto-feminist fashion magazine Elle gets in on the doll-action, with a front-of-book feature about cover-girl Jessica Simpson's "Living Doll" style pegged to the magazine's cover story. [Elle]

Update: This living dolls thing may be the work of Heatherette, who went wild with the theme in a 2005 fashion show and are now pawning it off on unsuspecting, rich teenage girls.
