Eye | Donatella Versace Modern Fashion Values | Sugar & Women's Health

1. Chelsea Clinton will join NBC Nightly News immediately as a full-time special correspondent. Political daughter Jenna Bush Hager, is has been a reporter for the Today show since 2009.  Over at NBC cable channel MSNBC, presidential-candidate daughter Meghan McCain provides political commentary.  Chelsea Clinton will focus on people making a difference and will also contribute to NBC’s new ‘Rock Center with Brian Williams’.

2. Drinking two or more sugar-sweetened beverages a day has been linked not only to weight gain but a significantly boosted woman’s risk for developing heart disease and diabetes. These risks are independent of weight gain in women. Researchers also determined that drinking two or more sodas — or iced tea southern style, or sugar-laden energy drinks — promotes more belly fat in women only. The finings were presented Sunday at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.

Melancholia and the End of the World

Are Sad Women the Prettiest? Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia

In Melancholia, a beautiful movie about the end of the world, Justine and Michael are celebrating their marriage at a sumptuous party in the home of her sister Claire, and brother-in-law John. Despite Claire’s best efforts, the wedding is a fiasco, with family tensions mounting and relationships fraying. Meanwhile, a planet called Melancholia is heading directly towards Earth.

Writing that Charlotte Gainbourg’s character is the easier one to relate to, the Gloss says that everything about Kirsten Dunst is remarkable in the movie. Charlotte Gainbourgh’s character? Not so much.

Culturally, we romanticize sad women in a way we don’t happy women. Zelda Fitzgerald. Eddie Sedgwick. Marilyn Monroe (especially Marilyn Monroe). There are probably other women just as pretty, but people are less inclined to think about the sublime beauty of Mary Tyler Moore or Doris Day or any of the other women who seem okay.

Dakota Fanning & Elle Fanning | Mario Sorrenti | W Magazine December 2011 | 'Sister Act'

 Lynn Hirschberg interviews Elle and Dakota Fanning, lensed by Mario Sorrenti for W Magazine’s ‘Sister Act’ in the December 2011 issue. The sisters tell Hirschberg that they share everything.

“My sister and I share a bathroom, and when you have a sibling, nothing is actually your own. I’ve never really had anything or a place that was just mine,” says Dakota, now a university student in New York City.

At age 17, Dakota Fanning has been in the Hollywood spotlight since 2001, when her seven-year-old breakthrough performance in ‘I Am Sam’ with Sean Penn won her accolades. Dakota ran into serious trouble with the conservative Parents Television Council over her kissing scene — also at age seven — in Reese Witherspoon’s movie “Sweet Home Alabama”.

Dakota’s Fall 2011 Marc Jacobs ‘Oh, Lola!’ ad was recently banned in England for being too suggestive. The campaign is much more sexualized (should it be banned is another topic entirely) than herspring/summer 2007 ready-to-wear campaign for Marc Jacobs.

Sister Elle Fanning is front and center this season as the young girl idol of the fashion industry. She will next appear in ‘We Bought a Zoo”, which hits theaters Dec. 23. (See Trailer

Elle herself is the subject of considerable controversy in the ongoing discussion of fashion’s obsession with really young girls.

Lori Goldstein styles the Mario Sorrenti shoot, dressing the fabulous Fannings in Chanel, Dior, Givenchy and Valentino.

Mario Testino | The Superman Photographer Who Loves Women

Mario Testino, the renowned fashion photographer, produced images for the covers of six major magazines this autumn. Alex BramellMario Testino - 30 Years Behind the Camera NY Times by Suzy Menkes

It’s been a strong year for Mario Testino: six fall fashion covers to his credit, a Testino retrospective traveling the world and a big wedding in London.  

The Peruvian-born maestro behind the international celebrity and glamour lens is summed up by US Vogue editor Anna Wintour: ‘He adores women, adores celebrity — and they adore him right back.’

I think this is Testino’s true gift, one that I consider within a larger context. In an industry that doesn’t always adore women; among photographers — many of whom wish to impose their photographic style on a woman, in the same way that designers view her as a prop —  Mario Testino comes at women differently.

Wintour continues: “I think he really understands our sensibility. He has a style but is not trying to impose. And it is not just the look of fashion and the aesthetic, he also has a business brain.”  Testino’s reputation as a business person is legendary.

Catching the moment is the ‘Mario message,’ says UK stylst Lucinda Chambers. Ms. Chambers says it’s ‘part of a visual curiosity’ that includes his interest in models as more than coat hangers and also a passion for collecting art.

Kate Moss by Mario TestinoTerrence Pepper, curator of photography at the Portrait Museum of London, describes Testino as the ‘John Singer Sargent of our time.’

‘It’s a choice — there are two different sorts of photographer: those obsessed with the technicalities and those obsessed by the subject,” says Mr. Testino. “I ask how I can make them look their best.’

‘Where is her dark side?’ Testino critics demand, insisting that if she is not a coatrack, let’s still show her who’s boss behind the camera.

Exhalting women does not support masculine artistry. Is it not men’s role in life to define how women are portrayed? THEY are the artists, not her.

‘A lot of photographers like models to be blank canvases — but bland girls don’t influence me. I don’t like playing with dolls; I like playing with people,’ says Mr. Testino, who says that it is her character and individuality that makes him ‘obsessed’ with Kate Moss.
