'Elle' Magazine Never Brown-Bags It

The other day we pointed out the absurdity (or genius!) of the front and back covers of Elle's August issue, but what about what's inside?

'Elle' Magazine Never Brown-Bags It

Well, the 'Elle Shops' section is back-to-school themed, with cute categories like 'Art History,' 'Geek Chic' and 'Foreign Exchange.' On the opening page, some of the school-girl-inspired items include an argyle vest, a rugby-striped hoodie and a lunch box. Oh, but not just any lunch box — a Balenciaga lunch box. The price? $2,285. Just to put things in perspective: For the same price, a person could treat 1,523 needy NYC public school kids to lunch (school lunch is $1.50). Bon appétit!
