Charlene White Tweets A Cindy Crawford Reality Check & Now Women Feel Soooooo Much Better

I would never give British media personality Charlene White a serious journalism assignment based on her unethical, unprofessional mangling of Cindy Crawford’s photo. Now that the facts — rather than White’s purported explanation of what she was doing with Crawford’s unretouched photo — have come to light, we are reminded of the incredibly low standards embraced by so many people who call themselves journalists.

A Tweet That Rocked Cindy’s World

For background, Charlene White came into possession of an unretouched photo of Cindy Crawford (above), one purported to be from an upcoming April 2015 spread in Marie Claire Magazine in which the supermodel purposefully had no Photoshop work done on her images.

White Tweeted the image with the message ‘Cindy Crawford’s April spread in Marie Claire features 100% non-retouched photos. Take a bow Ms. C.’

I’m not sure anyone working in the fashion world, or any follower of fashion, has ever called Cindy Crawford ‘Ms. C’. Ms. White is sounding very insider in her Tweet, but reality is that she isn’t at all ‘in the know’ in the world of fashion supermodels.

Naomi Campbell should read White the riot act, Brit girl style.

Marie Claire responded, clarifying that the photo’s origins are actually from a December 2013 cover story from Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America — and that the unretouched version is a leak.

Woops, Charlene!

The Published Photoshoot

Here are two images of Cindy from that photoshoot and a link to the entire editorial at AOC.

Marie Claire then wrote:

No matter where the photo came from, it’s an enlightenment—we’ve always known Crawford was beautiful, but seeing her like this only makes us love her more. And as she told us at the premiere of her new documentary last week: ‘I really think—at any age—it’s learning to be comfortable in your own skin. …If women would treat themselves with the same kind of love they give to their friends, that would be such a great gift we could give ourselves. …What makes you the most attractive is self-confidence. That’s what people see.’

Carmen Dell'Orefice Talks The Importance Of Sex In Healthy Aging For New You Magazine

Top model Carmen Dell’Orefice is the world’s oldest working model at age 83. Even better is the fact that the silver-haired vixen has worked more in the last 25 years than at any time in her career. Carmen first posted for Salvador Dali at age 13 and nabbed her first Vogue cover at 15.

“Carmen is the embodiment of being able to do anything you want no matter what age you are,” said Ruchel Louis Coetzee, co-executive editor of New You, which targets women ages 35 and older. “She defies age.”

Carmen Talks Sex

Asked if she still has a sex life, Carmen asks ’ … why would I give that up?’ before continuing ‘Do I love to breathe? If you have a Rolls Royce and it is up on wheels, you go in with the key and every now and then turn on the motor to make sure the motor is running. So when you want to drive the car, it is all oiled and ready.’

Carmen is all Rolls Royce, adding that although she has been married three times and engaged once, she refuses to give up on love. Expressing total candor about masturbation, the New-York born daughter of Italian and Hungarian parents responds: ‘I know how to pleasure myself’ before adding ‘I can go for a low romantic love, and that’s fine but I am conditioned to the whole meal.’

Give Up On Sexual Guilt

Asked why so many older people abandon sex later in life, the cover girl explains that they never entered the subject of sex ‘from the right door’. We’re told ‘don’t do that’ or ‘that’s bad’ by religion and doctors, too. In Carmen’s playbook, sex should be like breathing.

To that statement, we say Amen, Carmen. You are most definitely Sensual & Superyoung.

Perhaps Angelina Jolie Is Just Too Caught Up In Life To Eat

Is Angelina Jolie Just Feeling Empathy?1. Once again people are talking about Angelina Jolie’s ‘alarmingly thin’ body, revealed in her arrival in London for a very special day in Jolie’s life. Angelina joined former British Foreign Secretary and now Leader of the House of Commons William Hague at the London School of Economics to announce the opening of the London Center For Women, Peace & Security. We share all the details of Angelina’s incredible new initiative for the world’s women.

Jolie has a long history of working with William Hague to successfully persuade the G8 nations to consider the rape of women in war a war crime. The new center for women gives the effective couple a prestigious platform for advancing issues around the international rape of women.

Angelina Jolie has always maintained a very trim figure. But writing about AOC’s founding muse two weeks ago, another possible explanation for her extremely thin frame arose.

Angelina Jolie in upcoming film ‘By the Sea’2. Angelina Jolie ate little while directing ‘Unbroken’. Japanese actor Miravi explained to the Daily Mail that as Jolie directed the actors playing inmates and prisoners of war to lose weight in an effort to reflect the harsh conditions of life in captivity, she stopped eating, too.

Actor Jack O’Connell was Jolie’s leading man playing the story of Louis Zamperini, who spent two years in a prisoner of war camp. Jack told the Daily Mail:

‘I really respect her professionalism, her attitude towards the creation – she’s so determined and passionate. It was intense on set but with her motivation and attitude we were on the same page.’

The actor revealed that Jolie tried out all of his stunts, which included spending hours supporting the weight of a heavy wooden plank above his head.

3. Angelina Jolie was in Syrian refugee camps in January, fulfilling her role as UN Special Envoy on Refugees. Reports yesterday went undenied that Angelina and husband adopted a 7th child, a 2-year-old boy living in the refugee camp in Turkey.

Body Beat | Ashley Graham First Curvy Girl Editorial For SI | A Mysterious Kim Khardashian By Steven Klein

Kim Khardashian Undercover

The buildup to Kim Khardashian’s LOVE magazine images has entered a feverish pace. We share what is the most discreet and visually mysterious image from a set in which Kim goes full frontal glistening in baby oil and standing naked in the doorway.

Steven Klein is the perfect photographer for Kim Khardashian!! Word is that Miuccia Prada has worked feverishly to adapt Prada designs for Kim’s body — given no more fabric from the spring collection.

See more cover photos from the February 9th LOVE debut.

Ashley Graham For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Zowie! Model Ashley Graham will debut in the first-ever Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue editorial devoted to curvaceous bodies. Ashley wears bikinis for swimwear brand swimsuitsforall.

‘I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too,’ the size 16 model said about her ground-breaking campaign.

It’s a fact that most men prefer women — and models — who are not size zero. There are exceptions, of course, but AOC has received countless messages from men who love our approach to celebrating women’s curves — and with CONFIDENCE!

Ashley Graham swimsuitsforall Video

Ashley Graham knows that CONFIDENCE is the key word (as does Kim Khardashian) and the curvy girl lets us know this fact without hesitation in her swimsuitsforall video.

Lung Cancer Now More Deadly Than Breast Cancer Among Women

The French, in particular, believe that smoking is rebelliously chic and a way to stay slim. I say let the darling French smoke as much as they want, but could the fashion industry please stop telling young women in Turkey and Vietnam and Thailand that real chic women smoke.

All thinking people know that lung cancer kills. For the first time in history, lung cancer has passed breast cancer as the leading cause of deaths for women in rich countries. Smoking has long been the leading cause of cancer death in men. This is one gender gap we’re sorry to see women close.

Body Beat | Julianne Moore For L'Oreal Paris | Twiggy As Brand Ambassador | Good Girls Like Isaia 

Twiggy Named L’Oreal UK Brand Ambassador

Swinging 60’s model Twiggy is now a L’Oreal brand ambassador, representing L’Oreal Professionel’s new Majirel High Lift, a cool blonde formula used in the brand’s ‘Shimmering Blonde’ salon service. AOC shares comparatively unretouched images of the mega model above and a snap from the L’Oreal campaign (left).

Twiggy, 65, joins fellow blonde Dame Helen Mirren, Jane Fonda, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé Knowles, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, and new mother American Blake Lively in a long list of celebrities and models worldwide.

The Business of Aging

In the UK, women over age 50 account for 47 percent of the adult population. The over 50 age group also accounts for 80 percent of the UK’s wealth — a fact that speaks volumes about where cosmetics companies will be targeting growth.

The Telegraph UK’s Lisa Armstrong cautions us on reading too much into the Twiggy announcement or the proliferation of older models in Spring 2015 ad campaigns.

For every 68‑year‑old Charlotte Rampling fronting a Nars make-up campaign or Jessica Lange, 64, in Marc Jacobs Beauty, there are scores of older models who long ago gave up hope of finding work. The Telegraph’s fashion team is constantly trawling for 60-plus models - and failing to find them. But if Mirren and Twiggy make business sense for L’Oréal, older models may become a new normality, rather than news; not objects of curiosity on Twitter, but part of a more diverse mix. That surely is progress.
