Researchers Deny PETA Claim That Moms Eating Chicken Deliver Males With Smaller Penises

PETA is known for its controversial shock tactics in its war on meat consumption and animal cruelty. Accusing pregnant women of contributing to their son’s small penis size may be hitting below the belt, especially when the author of cited research Shanna Swan Ph.D, a professor of preventive medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai says “I think any link between eating buffalo wings — even by pregnant women — and the size of their son’s genitals is very tenuous.”

PETA’s Lindsay Rajt wrote to the National Buffalo Wings Festival founder Drew Cerza, alleging: “The latest scientific evidence shows that the sons of pregnant women who consume chicken are more likely to have smaller penises because of a chemical found in the birds’ flesh.”

Rajt continued: “Findings published by the Study for Future Families showed that eating poultry during pregnancy may lead to smaller penis size in male infants.”

In fact, the study did identify a link with prenatal phthalate exposure and penis size, but not related to eating chicken. For a review of the research findings, read on at the National Institute of Health.

Robert Pattinson Dior Homme Commercial Fall 2013

Complex panned Robert Pattinson’s performance in Nan Goldin’s Dior Homme with Camille Rowe, saying “it’s just a sad-faced Pattinson in great photos of New York.” The critique by Andrew Lasane seems not entirely accurate, within the goals of Dior in creating the marketing message around their man.

For starters, more than half of men’s fragrances are bought by women as gifts. It’s safe to assume that the Dior Homme man probably refills his own cabinet, regardless of the ad campaign. And might it be possible that the Dior Homme man rather likes this image of himself, as it plays with women?

As Grazia Beauty writes: Mr Dior has evolved into a ‘vivid and potent’ man who invents a new way of being ‘male’. The accompanying campaign images are shot mainly in black and white by photographer Romain Gavras. Dior calls the images ‘new, wild and free’ with Pattinson looking ‘adamant and sexy.’ The vibe is inspired by Marlon Brando, James Dean, Paul Newman says Dior — all rebellious men.

Photographer Lucia Giacani Goes 'Under My Skin' At Vogue Italia's Talents

Vogue Italia shares a set of smashing conceptual images by photographer Lucia Giacani and stylist Dinalva Barros, featuring model Kristina Sheiter.

In ‘Under My Skin’, human beings and animals have colour in common. The editorial is set in a vet lab and immortalizes the looks of basic silhouettes busy talking to animal models with muscles and organs revealed. Simply brilliant!!

I so love it when female teams explore female identity. Lucia Giacani’s words summarize:

Lucia Giacani is a woman who immortalizes women under every aspect. Feelings, ambitions and normality are captured through the lens behind which is a feminine eye that knows what to look for and how to express the essence of an entire universe. A woman who reflects another woman: this is the intimate reasons of her job. Her look — naturally feminine and revolutionary — is the silent engine that works behind every shot … Lucia currently lives in Milan and London … her works have been published in Vogue Accessory, Vogue Gioiello, Vogue Pelle, Vogue Russia, Vanity Fair, VS, Harrods, No.ise & Twill.

Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Oh Land By Robbie Fimmano For Vogue Australia September 2013 AOC Sensual Fashion

I was in a bit of a blue mood this morning. As is the case with life, things always change on a dime. My earlier post about GlamTribale helping to launch the first Philadelphia Ballet Nutcracker Market on Dec 6-8 got picked up somewhere, because it moved to our #4 article. That’s saying a lot at AOC, in terms of page views.

Right after posting this lovely short Australian Vogue editorial of Netherlands songstress Oh Land, with this super simple blossom image, I read my Gardenista blog newsletter. It took me to Greece — a place I can’t even think of without reflecting on the most wonderful vacaton of my life, sailing in a small sailboat in the Ionian Sea.

A few years ago I wrote a post Sailing To Ithaca, reflecting on this breathtaking experience. That very writing turned into another life-altering experience, watching the video of Sean Connery reading CP Cavafy’s poem about Ithaca. I weep every time I watch that video, and my spirits lifted with its poignant dose of sensual reality about living a good life.

I pulled everything together and shared it on today’s AOC front page. Enjoy. ~ Anne

Irina Shayk By Penelope Cruz for L'Agent By Agent Provocateur

Men will be men, although the ladies seem to be holding court in this sizzling Agent Provocateur lingerie video directed by Penelope Cruz to launch Agent Provacateur’s new diffusion line, L’Agent,

The video features Irina Shayk and leading man Miguel Angel Silvestre. The startingly sexy six-minute film also features a cameo appearance from Cruz’s husband Javier Bardem and also sister Monica, with whom she co-designs the lingerie line.

Penelope — who recently welcomed her second child, a baby girl named Luna Encinas Cruz — spoke about making the ad: “It’s important to send the message that this is for everybody. I can find beauty in so many different types of women. I didn’t just want to show the beautiful bodies of the models, I wanted to tell a story.”

Samantha Gradoville Captured By Warren du Preez And Nick Thornton Jones For Contributor Magazine

Ceylan here, covering for Anne. The brilliant photography duo Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones join together as they deliver this eclectic shoot for Contributor Magazine

They are successful in creating a surreal and dreamlike story, as they snap models Samantha Gradoville and Anmari Botha in this otherwordly shoot. Visual boundaries are pushed to the limit as the models manage to convey a mix of emotions and feelings in just a few edgy images.

It seems inspiration has been drawn from a range of things, with hints of old Greek mythology creeping into some of the images. Alex Box is behind the make-up and turns Samantha into a steamy vixen, as she selects headpieces that are captivating and make you question the symbolism and influence behind them. 

Bondage clothing is used to suggest an even more bizarre but still trancelike feel and the editorial is steamy and exhilarating, making it stick to the title, ‘Desire, Despair.’ 

Desire is shown when the models can be seen looking superior and majestic, even transcendent as they seem to be fully embracing the idea of longing and yearning for something more.

Depair is shown mostly in the images where restraint is clearly being used, but all the photograph’s flow together perfectly to tell a story of lust and desire but also of frustration and feeling bound. The shoot contrasts from being completely free to being fully restrained, making it a stunningly raw editorial.

Lucan & Oliver O'Brien for J.W. Anderson's Debut F/W 2013/2014, Campaign by Jamie Hawkesworth

Ceylan here, covering for Anne. In the first ad campaign by J.W. Anderson, we see him making the next fresh move as these minimal images snapped by Jamie Hawkesworth depict a story of a boy and girl.

Both models are wearing the Fall 2013 designs by Anderson and the styling is contributed by Benjamin Bruno, who captures the two as they gaze glumly into the camera.

One of the shots shows the male model holding a red car door, which, to Anderson represents extraction as he says ““I wanted to show the relationship between a boy and a girl, a man and a woman, and the abstraction of that. There’s something disturbing between them, and it makes you question the idea of who in the image is more powerful, or who is more seductive.”

The shoot is minimalistic and simple, ensuring the attention is solely on the bold Anderson pieces used. As the models all have a youthful look about them, the images look very organic and natural, focusing on the representation in the shoot.
