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.

Body Beat | Mind Control of Food Cravings | Ashley Graham For Navabi | Christie Brinkley's New Skin Care Line

 Can Short Distractions Reduce Food Cravings?

Richard Weil, M.Ed. CDE, the director of the Weight Loss Program at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City, conducted a small study on the impact of three short distraction tasks, plus a control task, on 55 obese males and females. On average, participants had an average body mass index of 43.7. meaning they were on average 83 pounds overweight.

The 30-second tasks in Weil’study included forehead tapping, ear tapping, toe tapping and imagining a blank white wall. Forehead-tapping with the participant able to watch in a mirror was 10% more effective than the other distractions like toe tapping or imagining a blank wall. But all distractions were effective in focusing brain activity elsewhere and away from the food craving.

In a second study reported by psychiatrist Dr Kathryn Demos of Brown University, 25 overweight and obese participants were coached to alter their thoughts about a food craving, when shown a picture of it.

Brain scans in the Demos stody confirmed that ignoring the craving or thinking negative thoughts about it, such as the long-term, negative health consequences associated with eating it, had an impact on the pleasure center of the brain.

“We found that simply thinking in a different way affects how the brain responds to tempting food cues in individuals with obesity,” Dr Demos said.

“Our results show the promising possibility that focusing on the long-term consequences of consuming unhealthy foods could help diminish cravings and, as a result, potentially enhance weight-loss efforts.”

Anne here. Anecdotally,  I have engaged in these practices for years, coming to grips with my own cravings as the primary vehicle for controlling my weight. When I see photos of a Big Mac or other fat-drenched burger, my mind says ‘poison’ and I actually have a response of disgust, not desire. 

Brain science suggests that we can employ the same tactics in reprogramming our brains to resist size 0 fashion models as the ‘ideal’ vision of female beauty and a body image we women should regard as aspirational. This AOC article deserves updating, because science clearly is on my side in the assumption that we CAN control our response to advertising and commercial messaging, as well as our own private desires for food and drink. It’s tough going in the beginning, but we CAN do it!

Christie Brinkley’s Skin Care Line

Dance Like Beyonce Every Hour To Fight Back Against Killer Effects of Sedentary Lifestyle

Beyonce startled the universe yesterday, releasing unannounced a new ‘7/11’ video that has gained 4 million more views on YouTube in 12 hours. The video features Bey and her posse dancing around as if jammin’ at a slumber party. ‘7/11’ and another new track called ‘Ring Off’ are both featured on the  ‘Beyonce Platinum Box Set’ on Monday.

Beyonce is also nominated for Artist of the Year at the 2014 American Music Awards (AMAs), which will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theater LA tomorrow night, Sunday, November 23, 2014.

Forgive me for going all serious on readers this moment, but watching Beyonce’s ‘7/11’, my only response was ‘let’s move’! Any kind of movement — because our good health and longevity depend on it. Now Beyonce has all the right moves — but the casual, spontaneous nature of this dance routine says ‘anything goes’. So get your booty movin’, arms flailing and don’t worry about making an idiot of yourself.

Get A Move On

Researchers in Germany took a look at 43 observational studies that analyzed 4 million people’s answers to questions about how much they sat each day and incidences of cancer. “The researchers examined close to 70,000 cancer cases and found that sitting is associated with a 24% increased risk of colon cancer, a 32% increased risk of endometrial cancer, and a 21% increased risk of lung cancer,” reports QUARTZ. 

The really bad news is that your nightly trip to the gym isn’t enough to undue the damage to your body of sitting all day. Meeting your daily activity requirements working up an intense gym sweat or yoga workout is not enough.
