What’s that song “It’s raining men.”
Well, it’s raining naked women everywhere, except for Tiger Woods on the cover of Vanity Fair”. I’m on my way to bed and I see an un-airbrushed Miss Universe 2004 and model Jennifer Hawkins, on the cover of February’s Australian Marie Claire.
Some are slamming the magazine, claiming that Jennifer Hawkins isn’t a ‘real woman’ either. So what is a ‘real woman’?
I love this Crystal Renn opulent but very sensual fashion editorial for Germany’s Brigitte, who says that will use real people in fashion editorials going forward. Crystal Renn is real but also a model, appearing in the January V Magazine survey of models in all sizes.
So often fashion photos are very superficial, presenting clothes after all, with no real interest in drawing us into the mood of the woman. We might assume that the darkness, the rich fabrics and rich interior make Crystal Renn appear so sensual in these photos.
The next installment of V Magazine’s January Size Issue has hit the Internet, with a debut on Models.com.The spread follows the earlier Terry Richardson seeing double layout called One Size Fits All.
Today’s layout is “Curves Ahead” by Solve Sundsbo, featuring Candice Huffine, Marquite Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn and Kassia P.
My own impression — and the concensus around town — that that the photography and “mood” of these photos is far superior to the first One Size Fits All Richardson photos.
Fine. Now that my little rant The Horrors of Stiletto Seduction with Fat Ankles is a hit with readers, I felt like a holiday gremlin today, seeing this gorgeous Christian Louboutin window in Paris, thanks to a new discovery Le Journal des Vitrines.
I was just tired of being ‘man handled’ that day. When Barbie has fat ankles that must be slimmed down to size, I find myself grasping the reality that I will never measure up … no way, no how. Don’t misunderstand me; I fight a valiant beauty battle.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor resides in formal pose on the cover of Latina, January 2010. Blog posts are circulating about her red nails.
Many cultural practices work against women, and Justice Sotomayor wants to be certain that we understand that Smart Sensuality red nail polish is empowering for Latina women.
