What Beauty Really Is (according to the media)

Hi, lovelies. Sometimes the weirdest things drag me out of my beauty hiatus.


In the still shot above, the model looks like wax. I liked her so much better with her natural, freckled skin.


Nothing, literally nothing we see in print is real anymore.


I wonder how you encourage something mandatory.

    1. Right, like elongating her neck! Thanks for the welcome back, Clare/Replica. I have so many posts percolating in my brain that need escape; I should just get it over with!

  2. Wonderful to hear from you, Z!

    I agree that no image we see is unaltered. It's almost as if we are circling back to the days when advertising consisted of drawn images rather than photos.

    1. Hi veuve! I'd almost prefer that, though even J. Peterman could make me feel insecure with his tall and willowy-thin drawn models. :)
