Models too thin [Buy]5/13/2013 2:32:10 PM
´╗┐Models too thin "It's very worrying," Twiggy told reporters in Los Angeles. The 57-year-old pop icon has called on fashion magazines to ban unhealthily skinny models and for the modelling industry to be regulated. Born Lesley Hornby, but given the nickname Twiggy for her reed-thin body, said she was naturally skinny when she revolutionised the fashion world in the late 1960s. "When I was modelling through 16 to 20, when I got blamed for making kids want to be thin, I ate absolutely everything, but I was naturally skinny," she said. "I ate, but I had a really high metabolism." Today, many models, actresses and women in the public eye have lost large amounts of weight and Twiggy, without naming names, says it is easy to spot them. "You get what I call the lollypop look," she said. "If somebody is not naturally slender, if their head is too big for their body, the chances are they are dieting too much." It is not just Hollywood's young women that concern her, with Twiggy pointing to well-known actresses beyond their 20s who appear to be starving themselves. "A lot of them aren't girls," Twiggy continued. "They are women. You can't believe somebody in their 30s and 40s would want to do that or go there. "It's incredible really." Twiggy is using her new job as a judge on reality TV show, America's Next Top Model, seen in Australia on Foxtel's FOX8 channel, to help educate young wannabe models about the dangers of crash diets. Along with the show's host and founder, American supermodel Tyra Banks, contestants who appear to have lost too much weight during the pressure of the competition have been pulled aside and counselled. "Tyra's really good about that," Twiggy said. "She really is." Twiggy wants other influential players to step in. "I think some of the fashion magazines should take a little bit more control of it and maybe not feature anyone who looks unhealthy and the modelling industry should be regulated," she said.

High Heels Vs Ballet Pumps [Shop]5/13/2013 1:28:45 PM
high heels vs ballet pumps Suntanning has grown in popularity since 1923, when French fashion designer Coco Chanel sported a tan that had high-fashion women forsaking their pale skin for the sun-bronzed look. But tanning also is one of the fastest ways to damage skin cells, and accelerate the skin's aging process. Too much exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun can cause photoaging, a common skin problem that creates changes in skin pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sagging skin. The foetal period (from about 6 weeks after conception) is more resistant to serious abnormalities or prenatal death. Animal studies suggest a high rate of growth retardation. When doses climb above this level in the organogenesis period, it is recommended that women be councilled over the potential for congenital abnormalities induced by radiation. It was not meant to be taken seriously. The finale wedding gown is a designer's whimsical piece de resistance, his or her "all-bets-are-off" tribute to their own creative talent. Preposterous. History of ApparelThe history of tennis apparel dates at least to 1528, when, "New York" magazine reports, tennis enthusiast Henry VIII commission suits to be made especially for the game. Until the late 1800s, women were expected to play in their skirts. In 1919, Suzanne Lenglen debuted a knee-length dress on her way to winning Wimbledon, which fanned the flames of scandal and even prompted some spectators to leave the court. All in all the film is a pretty broad overview of what goes on in the hallowed corridors of the iconic magazine. There are some last minute dramas when an Italian-themed cover shoot with a bad-hair Sienna Miller doesn't result in an obvious money shot, and photographer Mario Testino declines to cough up the remaining digital negatives. The background is populated by a flurry of fashionistas wheeling hefty clothes racks, uttering aphorisms like "jackets are the new coats". Hi Ladies, todays Fierce Fit of The Day showcases the versatility of a flirty sun dress and how to take it from business casual to the perfect look for lunch with the girls. This dress was a steal for $6.99 at Ross. Can you believe I almost passed it up? Coincidently I found that the last pieces in my very own closet. I have read alot of blogs and comments about the first family and this one gets to me. If Michelle wore jeans and t-shirt, you guys would say something. If she shopped at Walmart, Sears, Target, or JC Penneys it would be okay. Interval BenefitsInterval training provides results that are comparable to or better than a typical fixed-exertion form of exercise, in less time. This type of training also incorporates both aerobic and anaerobic exercise into one routine, making it more efficient than your static intensity workout. Several university studies confirm that interval training builds cardiovascular endurance and burns fat at a greater speed than traditional exercise, including results published in the "American Journal of Applied Physiology.".

´╗┐News Videos about Fashion and Style When the fashion elite gathered this spring at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards -- the Oscars of the rag trade -- the crowd at Lincoln Center sat transfixed as they watched Vogue editor Anna Wintour present the lifetime achievement award. Only this year, the distinction went not to a legend of European couture, like Yves Saint Laurent or Christian Dior, nor to an American icon like Ralph Lauren (though those design kings have all won in the past). It went instead to Michael Kors, at 50 the youngest recipient ever. The Bingham Canyon open-pit mine is the biggest hole dug by man anywhere in the world - about 2 1/2 miles long and nearly a mile deep, according to its owner, Kennecott Utah Copper. Miners have been digging copper, silver, and gold out of Bingham Canyon, just outside Salt Lake City, since 1906. These days huge trucks that cost up to $3 million each work around the clock, hauling about 450,000 tons of dirt out of the earth each day. More than 99% is waste. But by expending vast amounts of energy - the mine operates its own coal-fired power plant - Kennecott is able to extract an average of about 795 tons of copper, 12,000 troy ounces of silver, and 1,400 ounces of gold a day. Sometimes a guy just can't be bothered to grow a full beard. Just ask scruffily sexy Johnny Depp, follicly challenged Deal or No Deal's Howie Mandel or Britney Spears's latest beau, Adnan Ghalib, who sports a skinny strip on his chin. They're all walking advertisements for the soul patch that stray patch of hair just hanging out beneath their lower lip. Better yet, look at Hulk Hogan: The wrester/reality star has been sporting his handlebar 'stache for, um, ever! Call them creative or just daring, but not every man can work that kind of facial hair.
