The Latest Dieting Craze Is Juice Fasts Which Could Be Equally As Bad For Our Bodies, As NYTimes Says Models Don't Eat For Days Before A Show

The latest craze in the fashion world has now been identified: juice fasts. To be honest, I’m not sure how many of us really want to be as thin as Karlie Kloss but the NYTimes Style section tells us that most models don’t eat for four days before a fashion show. They go for the option of juice only instead. I have to admit, while it is better to see models drinking a cup of fruit than puffing on cigarettes, these juice brands are present at most runway shows. But the question is are they good for us? Roopal Patel writing for the NYTimes voices her thoughts, informing us that this juicing craze really messes up our system.

Doutzen Kroes Says She's No Size 0 & Wears Her Curves Proudly

Victoria’s Secret Angel and L’Oréal superstar, Douten Kroes fronts The Telegraph Fashion’s Fall/Winter 2013/14 Fashion Supplement, lensed dressed down by Will Davidson.

Ten years ago, Kroes emigrated from her village of Eastermar in Holland, seeking a bit of extra pocket money working as a model. Today, Doutzen Kroes if the fifth-highest-paid model, according to Forbes.

Arriving in Amsterdam, she was signed up immediately and on her way to New York. Her big break came with Steven Meisel and the cover of Italian Vogue.

See all AOC Doutzen Kroes editorials

Very active on Instagram, Kroes worries that unintentionally, she puts pressures on young women. ‘I feel I’m such a big part of that insecurity that some girls might have because of my job, that girls think they have to be that picture. And even boys, they think that that picture exists and it’s so frustrating because I don’t look like that picture - I wake up not looking like that picture.’

Occasionally posting makeup free, natural pics of herself, Doutzen says people ‘want the fantasy’.

Doutzen Kroes stresses the fact that she is no size zero and doesn’t aspire to be, saying ‘I’m not a sample size at all. At some shows I know they have been using very young girls who have not gone into the change of the body yet - no hips, no boobs. I’m 28 and I’ve had a baby. I have a woman’s body.’

The top model does stress the importance of fitness and healthy eating in her life. Her personal trainer is the former boxer Michael Olajide, and she is also working with Mary Helen Bowers, the founder of Ballet Beautiful’. Kroes likes the combo of both boxing and ballet, calling it “very extreme”.

But then many people in today’s world would find her biking about 25km back and forth to school every day ‘extreme’.

18 Vaginas & Plenty Of Talking Points On Women's Bodies After Sydney School Newspaper Censored

Anne of Carversville has a long history of writing about vaginas. So it’s after taking a deep breath, that we step up to the plate on this one, supporting the censored version of the cover of Honi Soit, Sydney University’s student newspaper.

According to multiple statistics sources, Aussie women are much more liberated and have more equal rights than American women. But when the subject is vaginas — well some topics are universally condemned, no matter what country one lives in.

Please note that we have filtered this image for search engines.

This issue of Honit Soit is back on the newstand shelves, sealed in plastic packaging after it was removed last week over its cover images. The decision came after Sydney University’s Student Representative Council returned it into distribution with the stipulation that it be hidden under counters and sold only with age ID.

Afer deciding that the cover above — in which the 18 vaginas were covered by black bars — contained bars that were transparent, the five editors of the magazine are being forced to seal each one by hand in plastic — all 4,000 copies minus the 200 already giullotined.

Australian media explains. Note that the reporter says vaginas in her report. I’m not certain — and will clarify — if one can say ‘vagina’ on TV in America. A few years ago, the word was banned in American media. Remember Oprah calling hers a vajyajay?

References to my own writing on vaginas and especially the wonderful Great Wall of Vaginas in Britain follow video, image and open letter on vaginas to the public by Aussie women connected with Honi Soit.

In the past there have been a few anti-vagina comments by men who profess to love women but don’t love vaginas. That’s strange, when the two go together. This time I will not be releasing any negative comments about our beautiful vaginas. AOC exists to inspire women on many fronts — including a love of our bodies. Vagina-trashing must stop at AOC.

Let me add that for us, vaginas are also a political part of the Republican War on Women. If you remember, it’s only a little over a year ago that Michigan censored Rep Lisa Brown — and banned her from speaking on the House floor as an elected official — when she used the word ‘vagina’ in an abortion debate. As a result, Eve Ensler flew to Michigan and a reading of ‘The Vagina Monologues’ was held on the steps of the capitol.
