I LOVE Crystal Renn. And we didn’t need Terry Richardson to take these “ordinary” photos, but who cares.
If this is the editorial approach that V Magazine is using in their Jan. 2010 focus on women of every size, god bless them!
About 30 protesters braved the snowbanks to attend a Sunday rally outside Ralph Lauren’s flagship store at 72 and Madison.
Sonia Ossorio, of the National Organization for Women’s New York chapter, organizer of the event, said although Ralph Lauren is the target of the protest for his excessive Photoshopping and firing of Filippa Hamilton (scroll down for phots and lots of info on Filippa or look in right-hand column for individual articles), the protesters’ message is directed to the fashion industry.
French Vogue has joined my way of thinking about the battle over Lara Stone’s body, fashion and religion. The buzz is Stone’s interview in US Vogue about being the ‘fat girl’. The script is essentially the same one she gave British Vogue.
Hopefully, you’ll like my arguments about women’s need to take control of this situation — once we understand just what’s going on here and how high are the stakes. Please check out my thoughts on Lara Stone’s Sexy Body Debate Gets Religious.
The Sirt1 enzyme in the body has generated enormous attention as a longevity agent. Both fasting and drinking red wine, appear to aid in the longevity quest, because both likely activate Sirt1.
In a scientific discovery that shouldn’t yet be associated with the French Paradox, researchers from Brown University, Rhode Island Hospital and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center have discovered that Sirt1 in the brain has its own potential health benefit: It may keep people thinner.
They determined that inhibiting the activity of Sirt1 in the brain’s hypothalamic region appears to help control food intake — a finding that potentially lays the groundwork for new treatments for obesity. Details will be published online Dec. 15, 2009, at PLoS One. via Science Daily
