Kate Upton Is 'Venus Rising' By Mario Testino For Vogue UK June 2014

British Vogue June cover girl Kate Upton brings her winning charisma to Mario Testino’s beach babe images. Lucinda Chambers mixes retro with modern athletic swimwear in Kate’s all-American girl images ‘Venus Rising’ for the June 2014 issue. 

If you missed Kate’s interviews in April 2014 American Vogue, link here. Bobbie Brown describes Upton in distinctly AOC Smart Sensuality terms and we could not be more delighted:

Besides being strong and confident, she is really smart. She knows exactly who she is and who her brand is. She told me she called her mom and her sister right away when she found out about [becoming the face of the brand]. She was so excited about doing it! That’s what I love about Kate: She’s a real girl. And she’s not a waif-y supermodel. She was an athlete, so she’s comfortable with her body. She’s really kind of every woman.

'Here's To Loving Our Bodies By Our Own Standards' Says Jada Pinkett Smith

What stands out in Jada Pinkett Smith’s recent image above versus her November one below is the reality that both are beautiful. In embracing her 8-10 pound weight gain, the 42-year-old actress hardly went to hell in a handbastet.

“I think I will keep it,” she posted on her Facebook page, adding “Here’s to loving our bodies by our own standards.”

I so concur. In my case, a key reason for my own scaled down presence at AOC is my need to spend an hour each day — at a minimum — in the gym. Of course, there are several other key factors driving this pause, but regaining my old body is a core one.

By my own standards, I must lose another 15-20 pounds. This isn’t as daunting as it seems, with 35 gone already over the last two years. After finding and keeping my best physical self in 2003/4, a crippling gym injury in 2009 followed by a horrific fall in 2011 left me on a cane for 18 months and suffering a huge weight gain.

Depressed but determined, I began my own road to recovery in July 2011. Now I’m in the home stretch with my injury almost fully healed thanks — not to my doctor — but to my dearest friend and masseuse Iman. Week by week we ripped apart scar tissue while enhancing range of motion and flexibility in my right leg. The process has been very painful — as have my sessions in the gym — but I’m so much better.

The biggest change I see in Jada is in her face. Her sunken cheeks are fuller. In my case, I’m determined to regain the body I love most and worked so hard to create a decade ago. A declining scale tally and increased muscle and mobiity are the only acceptable reads for me until I reach my former size eight self. At 5’8”, that hardly makes me svelte. In my playbook, it does make me Smart Sensuality sexy — and healthy. ~ Anne

Kate Upton Defies Fashion Copious With Third Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

As a big Kate Upton fan and supporter of Smart Sensuality women, I noted the comment on Fashion Copious last week in posting the Sports Illustrated cover above: “Kate Upton and what she represents does not seem to be the future.”

What does that mean, John? Exactly what does Kate Upton represent that offends you?

Imagine my delight just now to learn that Sports Illustrated has for the first time released two covers — the first one featuring Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teige and a second one for Kate Upton lovers. Kate goes three in a row.

Bravo for all you represent, Kate. Now if only certain men would shut up and stop making pronouncements about certain types of women, the world would be a better place for all of us. ~ Anne

Pubic Hair Is Back, Announces The New York Times

Photo illustration by The New York Times; Getty ImagesPubic hair is back, writes The New York Times Fashion & Style’s Marisa Meltzer.  Gwyneth Paltrow, who once said the J Sisters Brazilian wax “changed her life” joked with Ellen that she now “works a Seventies vibe.” Jezebel chimed in “Ha! Retrobush.”

Lady Gaga posed on the cover of the Winter 2013-14 Candy Magazine, leaving no questions about her pubic hair preferences in the Steven Klein images.

Just recently, American Apparel jumped into the conversation when its Lower East Side Manhattan store put pubic hair on its mannequins.

“One of our merchandisers did that display to show off our semitransparent mesh lingerie for Valentine’s Day, and we’re longtime supporters of natural beauty, so we liked it,” said Marsha Brady, creative director for American Apparel, which is based in Los Angeles. “It just seems like everybody’s got it all backward. Pubic hair isn’t a trend, removing it is. It’s like everybody’s suddenly acting like having hair is a new idea.”

 

 

 

The queen of porno chic Carine Reoitfeld teamed up with Steven Klein and always game model Crystal Renn  for this visual shocker in Vogue Paris’ May 2010 issue.The image came at a time when I was in Google’s Internet image jail for writing about food porn.

Here is the actual Crystal Renn by Steven Klein image, now filtered.
