Body Beat | Jennifer Lopez On Facing Fears & Self Love | Naomi Campbell Gets Waxed | Gisele's No Makeup Selfies

Jennifer Lopez launches Self Magazine’s January 2015 issue with a clear cover message: LOVE YOUR BODY!!!! Self describes Lopez — lensed in all white, sporting clothes by Alexi Lubomirski — as fundamentally an athlete, writing that “she approaches her life with the same kind of intense kinetic energy that informs her choreography.”

2015 As A Nonstop Year: First, there is her day job as the good-cop judge on American Idol. Lopez is already partnering with health and fitness company BodyLab to create a new program for women by women. A look at the BodyLab website finds fitness routines, recipes, health tips, nutrition articles, smoothies and calorie and exercise trackers — plus BodyLab’s supplements and diet products.

Lopez’s small budget movie ‘The Boy Next Door’ opens soon. In a reverse ‘Fatal Attraction’ erotic thriller, Lopez plays Claire Peterson, a neglected wife who is seduced into a one-night stand by the 19-year-old next door. Lopez produced the $4 million budget movie herself.

On Being A Love Addict: Facing her failed relationships, Jennifer Lopez explains that people handle pain in different ways. “Some go out and party and sleep around, but that’s just not my way. I found the comfort in someone else. That’s called being a love addict.”

Lopez concluded that she had a fundamental fear of really being on her own and of facing her fears. Admitting that it has taken her years to get to this positive place of being, Lopez says: “So first it was about learning to love myself. And then it was about facing my fears.”

On Dating Younger Men: “all the old clichés about women need to be undone. Enough already!” And Lopez hates being called a cougar. 

 

Gisele Bündchen, the world’s highest-paid supermodel, shares makeup-free selfies in lingerie and with her Patriots-loving kids. Gisele was a trend-setter in models taking off their makeup, even posing for pictures with Johan Lindeberg in 25 photos for BLK DMN jeans. Note that Gisele’s face wasn’t in every image.

Naomi Campbell's Pilates Body Lensed By David Roemer For Evening Standard ES Magazine

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is very much back in the public eye these days, lensed here by David Roemer for London’s Evening Standard. Stylist Nathalie Riddle chooses signature sexy looks from Givenchy, Emilio Pucci and more for ‘No More Miss Nasty’. Read ES interview.

Naomi’s body is leaner than ever, thanks to her now-over relationship with Vladimir Doron, pilates and an incredibly strict diet. In her 2010 appearance on Oprah, Naomi volunteered that Vladimir didn’t permit her to eat bread and that she had learned to swim off his yacht, stating that previously she was too muscular to swim. Say what???

In April 2014 the Daily Mail ran a feature on Naomi’s morning workout, inspired by her Instagram Pilates snap. The bigger revelations came in her January 2014 Harper’s Bazaar interview. Reading it, there’s no doubt about the degree of self-discipline that Campbell brings to her daily routine:

5:00 A.M. When I’m in New York taping my show, The Face, I get up at five or six. When I’m not, I’d say nine. I don’t like alarms. I don’t like really sudden, loud noises; they make me jump. I wake up on my own. When I’ve had to put on an alarm, I always anticipate it, and I wake up before. The first thing I do is have hot water with lemon and probiotics. I’ve never drunk coffee; I don’t like the smell. I’m a tea drinker. If I need it I will have one cup of green tea. I’m more into herbal tea. After that I get up, take a shower, and then I have another set of drinks—one for the immune system and one with aloe. Then I do yoga or Pilates, and after, a big glass of green juice …

7:00 A.M. I go to the studio by SUV or Maserati. I catch up with phone calls and e-mails, things with Europe. Sometimes I read magazines in the car when my driver has them, but I actually prefer books. Right now I’m reading The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz. I’m also reading Clean, by Alejandro Junger, this detox book that’s been around forever. It’s about how to take care of your body, what you put in your body. And then before I know it, I’m at the studio. During hair and makeup I continue to do my e-mails and calls and stuff like that and try and get them out of the way. I can’t keep the phone on when I’m on set. I have a BlackBerry and an iPhone; I just got the new ones. I have two dogs, a Malkie named Milo and a bulldog named Winston, but I don’t bring them to work because there are too many people around and too much going on and lots of cables—I don’t want them to eat anything from the floor. I do take my blanket, and walnuts, dates, apricots, lots of dried fruit, Smartwater, tea bags, a packed lunch. I just became a vegetarian, and I find it a little hard to figure out what to eat, so I just bring stuff from home. I went to this place where they teach you how to take care of your body and clean it inside and out. After that I decided I didn’t want to eat pork, chicken, or anything I felt was unhealthy. I never thought I would ever do it. It was just something I decided to do. I don’t know how long it’s going to last, but I feel lighter and just easier. I think once you clean your intestine, you wanna try and keep it clean. I do juice cleanses two or three times per week.

Note: a Google search today suggests that Naomi remains a vegetarian, although the vast majority of vegetarians return to eating meat with a year.

Body Beat | Kendall Jenner Headlines Dazed 100 | Robyn Lawley On Body Love | Laetitia Casta For Lui Magazine 

French star Laetitia Casta joins Kate Moss, Rihanna and Gisele Bundchen as Lui magazine covergirls. Laetitia poses inside a cardboard box wearing nothing but lacy black stockings and retro pink pumps.

On the subject of one famous designer, Laetitia

Yves Saint Laurent was the first person who made me feel like a woman.

Casta, who posed in 1999 as a model for Marianne, France’s symbolic republican heroine, smiled before saying: “I tell people my breasts were made in Normandy, from better and crème fraîche.”

Kendall Jenner Headlines Dazed 100

Kendall Jenner By Robbie Spencer For Dazed Magazine Winter 2014

Kendall Jenner headlines Dazed Magazine’s new list of 100 creatives making waves and holding court in fashion and design for the coming year.  Jenner is interviewed by the magazine, where she denyies earlier reports that she was bullied backstage at fashion shows. Katie Grand is credited with believing that Jenner of the famous Kardashian family could transition into the world of fashion model, based on talent — and a flat chest.

I think she’s going to get everything she wants,” says Grand. “It was all a bit of a risk for her to go out there on her own in New York and trust someone that wasn’t IMG (Jenner signed with The Society Management). But above all, she looks great in the clothes. She’s flat-chested, and she has good shoulder proportions and a long neck. That’s all you really need.

Robyn Lawley For Beauticate

Aussie model, living-in-New York mom to be Robyn Lawley shares images from her exclusive shoot with Beauticate. In our politically correct world, Lawley speaks her mind — most loudly on the topic of ‘thigh gap’.

Body Beat | Kate Upton's Wig | Yu Tsai's Pet Names | Inez de la Fressange Fronts Vogue Paris

Nothing Less Than An Epic Fashion Event!!!

Getting up Monday morning and seeing our Kate Upton tag on fire, I jumped on the Internet wondering what darling Kate was up to.

A new movie role, perhaps? I knew she didn’t do her own Kim Kardashian Christmas card like Ellen and Portia, because Kate says ‘no nudity’. We’ll see how long that lasts, and Kate can change her mind any time she sees fit with no trouble from me. 

Perhaps Kate has a new philanthropy mission — a UN ambassador perhaps. After all, her sunny disposition, big heart and impeccable manners will go far in foreign countries.

Oh seriously not!!!!! You are kidding me.

The fuss is all about her hair, and even that was a fakeout, followed by retractions today.

Kate Upton wore a wig and the fashion blogging world went wild with news that Kate Upton Chopped Her Bombshell Hair, wrote Refinery 29 — followed by a retraction today.

My spiritual guru Mooji says “Judge not, Anne. Judge not. Work on yourself, not others. No judging, Anne.”

“Okay, Mooji, I’m really trying. I am … I am… I am…”

Yu Tsai’s Pet Panda

By afternoon Kate had cooled down and photographer Yu Tsai, of Guess and sexy editorials fame, with a bit of Victoria’s Secret thrown in for good measure, took off. Yu Tsai is now a high-profile consultant on America’s Next Top Model.

I don’t watch the show, but it seems that Yu Tsai repeatedly called model Chantelle Brown-Young ‘panda’ inspired by her skin condition called Vitiligo, the skin condition causing patchy pigmentation of the skin. Chantelle tries to speak with Tsai about his nickname, suggesting that he’s sending the message that it’s okay to make up pet names for people with skin conditions and other health irregularities.

Yu Tsai would have none of that, telling Chantelle “I don’t work for you.”  Hmmm, that’s a pretty feeble response. Let me say that I’ve always felt a deep spot in my heart for people dealing with Vitiligo. Listening to Chantelle on an unrelated video leaves no doubt that she’s one fantastic person and a hot model with a wonderful on-screen personality.

My Yu Tsai search took me to Styleite, a site far fresher than I remember it, and it’s now on my view list.

The World of French Women By Ines de la Fressange

Among the most fabulous French women in the world is Inez de la Fressange, fronting the December 2014/January 2015 of Vogue Paris, lensed by Mert & Marcus. It’s time to dig into the archives for my extensive writing on French women.
