jd Forte's 'The Up and Comers' & A September 11 Women's Rights Reflection

Fur and fur throws all by ADRIENNE LANDAU

It’s a first for Anne of Carversville to feature a bevy of beautiful, fresh face models in our pages. And no — it’s not a trend but a unique moment.

Quite simply, photographer jd Forte’s images are masterpieces that must be celebrated for their beauty and craft. Models.com features these fresh faces representing “a constant stream of exciting new talent making their mark on the industry.”

These young women represent a stylish fantasy that won’t change in the near future. Do we see uniqueness or banality? I let you be the judge. My senses are saturated with beauty and elegance, always celebrated on my websites.

These politically incorrect images of young women swathed in fur ignite the passions of PETA supporters — and I myself would not wear fur. Yet I know well the sumptuous feeling of sleeping naked under a fur coat, and for me, these women are warrior goddesses ready to change the world.This is my advantage as a storyteller.

I also know that PETA distorted scientific research facts last week, according to the author of the quoted research, threatening pregnant women with the fear that their male children will be born with smaller penises if chicken is in her diet. Goddess forbid! From PETA’s perspective, the end probably justifies the means.

Fashion is a messy business, increasingly in pursuit of sweet young things without womanly bodies, young women willing to eat soaked cotton balls to be thin enough for the runways. AOC has a long and loud voice, pushing back against the downsizing of the 90s supermodels, fierce personalities with size 4-6 bodies attainable by a quarter of American women if we watch our diets and exercise. The vast majority of women of any age can’t achieve the bodies of today’s models, no matter how hard we try.

We are complicit, of course, in our own imprisonment. As the very grounded, healthy body top model Doutzen Kroes said in her recent Telegraph interview, she posts natural, no makeup images of herself on Instagram, but her fans don’t particularly like them. Her tribe prefers her as a dolled-up fantasy.

Cameron Russell gave a refreshing 2012 TED Talk, asking aspiring young models why in the world they want to sign up to a life of insecurity, rejection and judgement.

Models Wearing Fur Is Bad Compared To What?

There are those who will judge me for putting fresh face young models on the pages of AOC. Will I next layer in our first story of a woman lawyer flogged in Sudan for inappropriate dress? Or will I post two more ‘vanilla’ articles, so that when this AOC front page shows three articles, her story of being brutalized by the government of Sudan isn’t reduced in any way by the alleged vulgarity of Western morals and culture?

Managing AOC’s content placement is a constant source of concern for me. Read on.

Saudi Cleric OKs Rapes of Syrian Women; Israel Bans Models With BMI's Below 18.5; Obama Joins Ike & FDR 51% Club

In 2013 Anne’s jewelry collection GlamTribale will sponsor ‘Informed’, a series of quick info bits for Anne of Carversville readers. View our goddess Diana Collection (above) online.

1. XO Jane writes: FSD (female sexual dysfunction) is a serious disorder — part of a family of disorders. Let’s start talking about it.

2. Israel bans models with BMIs below 18.5 in ads. Also ads must reveal use of Photoshop. via WSJ

7. Print book sales tumbled in America last year, declining from 72% who said they had read printed books in the previous 12 months to 67%. via Pew Research

8. Indian police have filed rape and murder charges against five men accused of a brutal gang rape of a New Delhi woman. The sixth suspect is a juvenile who will handled separately. Police say they will seek the death penalty. Read on at AOC

3. Saudi religious leader Muhammed al-Arifi, calls for gang rape of Syrian women over 14, specifying that “intercourse marriages” last only a few hours “in order to give each fighter a turn”. via Salon

The hard-line Wahhabi cleric said that the marriages between the foreign-backed militants and Syrian women will satisfy the militants’ sexual desires and boost their determination in killing Syrians.

4. President Barack Obama is the first president in more than 50 years to win at least 51% of the vote twice. The last president to do it was Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. The last Democrat to win such solid support was Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. via Bloomberg

9.Fragonard’s ‘The Swing’ is a model of French Beauty & Decadence, writes Anne.

The existing — or soon to be — mistress flies through the air in frivolous abandon, losing her shoe in an action powered by her husband.

5. Among tablet users, men are 11% more likely to say they get news on the devices than women. via Pew Research. Age, on the other hand, seems to be less of an indicator of mobile news consumption. This is particularly true on the tablet, where daily rates are similar across all four age groups studied (50- to 64-year-olds are a bit more likely than the youngest and oldest groups to get news). On the smartphone, owners under 50 get news at higher rates than those over 50. Read more at Pew Research

10. Energy drinks are the fastest-growing part of the beverage industry in America, reaching more than $10 billion in sales in 2012. Energy drinks promise edge, writes the NYT, but experts say there’s little proof to the claim.

'The Post-human Condition', A Poem by Anjeza Duro for Humanitarians | Bro. Dennis on: 'What's Love Got To Do With It?'

Haley by Remi Rebillard in ‘La Dolce Vita!’ AOC Private Studio

Monica Bellucci, a woman Remi knew in Paris with Karin, says this about curvy women:

“A curvy woman is not any less beautiful ~ It’s a different type of beauty, and men like it.”

An AOC woman reader I only know only as Ellen wrote last week:

I find it interesting that the media increasingly pushes a view of women that goes completely against the rules of attraction: which is one based upon signs of health and usually fertility. The ancient part of the brain is geared to finding a partner who will thrive - and for the majority that includes the ability to conceive or be around long enough to rear children. A skeletal woman with no body fat tells our subconscious that she is unable to fulfill this role: she is most likely unable to conceive (indeed periods stop when you starve yourself) and if she does manage it, the child or the mother is likely to suffer during pregnancy or childbirth. She is unlikely to be able to breastfeed either which is not essential of course but does have benefits for mother and child. I am not talking about naturally thin women, but the size zeros who can only get to that size by depriving themselves of essential calories. Fake boobs can mask this reality to some extent, but the jutting bones will always signify illness.

In a curve ball that was a bit of a knock-out punch for me, Ellen continued, postulating that some feminist women — gay and straight —  have collaborated with designers in desensualizing the 90s supermodels, seeking to promote women as more than fertile baby-makers.

Now that is a new angle in a question that has gone nowhere for months! Ellen has me thinking. Anne Read on for entire editorial.

2012 Sensual Joy and Spiritual Blessings To All Humanitarians

My life has always attracted unexpected bedfellows, but this year has brought together an unusual assemblage of people with shared goals and vision. Each of them reinforces our message of positive sensuality employed with humanitarian purpose, making Anne of Carversville a magnet for Smart Sensuality people.

There is no justifiable explanation or excuse for the extreme suffering waged in the name of God and nationalism worldwide.

Ironically, writing last Christmas Day 2010, I shared my dream of waking up with a scream, shouting with rage over the wars of men and their devastating impact on women, children and our planet. Today, it’s my friend Anjeza Duro’s words that resonate so profoundly this first day of 2012. Anjeza shares:

AOC 2Ps in a Pod

Image: Morfium Couture‘What’s Love Got to Do With It? | 2Ps in a Pod by Bro. Dennis

Dear Anne, delving more deeply into the content of your blog post, I recognized the pattern of healing revealed in your dream, which existed before the dream. Pretty cool! You are Anne of “today” and your dream of falling into the elevator shaft and emerging alive was the manifestation of who you are in the “now”… .

In our more formative years when we fell prey to the abusive words and actions of those we loved, trusted or admired, the experience can cause an indelible and tragic affect—following us through life. Not until we become self-aware are we able to exchange the lies for truth.
