I got an email with this pic on the front of it this morning and all I have to say is I think we finally found something worse than crocs (then again, maybe they’ll be all the rage in california and all the stars will wear them and I will have about 7 pairs. thats a BIG maybe . . . ) Buy yours here.
The hottest place to be last night in Dallas was Uptown Couture at the Launch Party for the debut of Paper or Plastik’s Pre-Fall Collection. Appetizers from Campisi’s, Dallas’ legendary Italian restaurant, and refreshments from Vitamin Water and Smart Water kept party-goers fueled for fashion. Click the break for more cool party pics!
Hey fashion lovers, you can shop sample sales too even if you don’t live in New York City! Hautelook.com has weekly, sometimes daily sample sales. (today it’s Splendid) You sign up to be on their email list and they will send you an email with the sale info the morning before the sale. You’ve gotta log in quick sometimes though to get the best stuff in your size. Hey its just like a real sample sale, without the hair pulling!
Wow. I thought this was the extent of the hoochie mama prom attendees. Apparently I was wrong. Yes, at Ghetto Prom in some US town, one girl channeled Lil Kim and wore essentially a NuBra covered in eggplant tafetta and a hastily wrapped skirt. If the whole trickle-up theory of fashion is true, we will be seeing this on the red carpet next season! Get excited (or get a blindfold).
Update: The Dove Fake Beauty story was well, a fake. Turns out, the ad agency who created the campaign is fessing-up , but only to simple color correction and film dust removal retouching on the Pro-Age product ads. They maintain that there was still no retouching on “big girls in undies” “Real Beauty” Ads. They say only the old ladies in the Pro-Age ads who posed in the nude were retouched (insert creepy joke here). Statements were apparently taken out of context.
Yeah, just like the cellulite and wrinkles were taken out of the photos . . .
A retoucher, Pascal Dangin of New York’s Box Studios, was recently quoted in an article for The New Yorker saying he retouched the photos in Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty:
“Do you know how much retouching was on that?” he asked. “But it was great to do, a challenge, to keep everyone’s skin and faces showing the mileage but not looking unattractive.”
Dove’s ad agency spokesperson didn’t fess up to knowing about any of it:
“There was no retouching of the women,” she said. “If there was a hair that was up in the air, that might have been the kind of retouching that was done. But until I know what he actually worked on, I can’t comment on it.”
Will we hear a public outcry for this? Will the real ”real” women speak out against Dove for misleading them? I mean, we already feel bad that we don’t have Gisele Bunchen’s butt or Scarlett Johansen’s boobs. But what happens when Dove, who’s supposed to be featuring our fellow sisters in flab, makes the ad’s subjects look even better than us normal people? I predict “hit fitting the shan”
I on the other hand am just making two notes to self:
#1-no cookies after lunch today
#2 For important photos, hire Mr. Dangin.
Get excited. The color changing tees of the 90s are back and now they’re called “ChangeMe” you know you want one.
Get yours here:
I mean I can’t wait to pull on a shirt that will show off my body temp like an infrared camera. Bring on the bright colored underarms.
