Gallery: Madewell Encourages Grown Women To Dress Like Disheveled Toddlers

But the quirksome, infantilized woman-children she so often plays seem to have leaked into mainstream culture to the point where major fashion brands like Madewell are styling their models like they’re trying out for Charlize Theron‘s role on Arrested Development. I’m all for dressing whimsically, but there’s a difference between selecting a cutesy print and making people wonder if you’re developmentally disabled and/or engaged in some sort of adult baby fetish play.
