My husband turned one of my photos into this high-relief. (The Guinness and eyeglasses are his; the light beer is mine.) It's a perfect representation of a perfect afternoon spent at an Irish pub in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Recently cosmetics brand NARS announced that the gorgeous Charlotte Rampling is the face of its 20th Anniversary campaign. Ms. Rampling is 68 and says she's never had any cosmetic surgery. I believe her. Judge for yourself.
Even more recently, fashion brand Marc Jacobs announced it's named the gorgeous in her own right Jessica Lange the face of the brand's beauty line. Ms. Lange is 64. If she's had any work done on her face it was very little. She looks like a sixty-ish-year-old woman.
I like cats, so showing a cat in your ad got my attention.
Turning said cat into a flaky pastry was a bold move but I like weird so you're okay there.
However, trying to scare me with fear of cat germs just makes me laugh. I kiss my cats on the lips. There are usually little bits of kitty litter in my bed. No doubt there are undiscovered puddles of cat gak in my house right now.
If you want to scare me, you'll have to do better.
You may have heard about the controversy surrounding this image of Beyonce. It was distributed by Roberto Cavalli in a press release. Cavalli designed the above stage costume for the singer.
The controversy surrounds the freakish photoshopping that makes Beyonce look like a fashion sketch. And fashion sketches depict women as emaciated, elongated human clothes hangers whose only purpose is to make clothes look appealing.
Reportedly, Beyonce is not happy.
The whole thing reminded me of this anorexia-awareness ad campaign from Brazilian modeling agency, Star Models.
