God. Just when you were thinking about buying a Bernie bumper sticker, capitalism plays its trump card and draws you back in.
Bebe for Bebe is perfect, predestined, a genius move no doubt dreamed up by some cynical Gen-Z marketing intern (or… executive?) with a stan account. I will be buying this skintight bodysuit, designed by Bebe (retailer) and modeled by Bebe (musician).
Bebe (retailer) has previously tapped the likes of Eva Longoria and Mischa Barton to model its clothes, but neither of those women had the advantage of also being named Bebe, and their campaigns have faded in the public memory. Also, according to Wikipedia, "Bebe" (retailer) isn't French, as we'd all assumed. Rather, founder Manny Mashouf was supposedly inspired by the Shakespeare "To be or not to be" quote from "Hamlet," which doesn't make sense at all, really. Bebe (singer)'s name is a shortening of "Blete," the Albanian word for bee.
