Boundaries are breaking down all around us. And this new wave of feminism we're experiencing has impacted many of the boundaries in the world of fashion too; the idea that there are standards of beauty that we must conform to, that being beautiful is a feeling that should be available to only a few privileged few, rather than something every woman should feel, from both inside and out.
You've got the ring. The date is set. The venue is confirmed. You're well on the way to the wedding of your dreams, but don't forget the icing on the three-tiered cake -- picture perfect skin!
Ever since the The Body Shop started the classroom craze for little potted lip balms, I've been hopelessly hooked. Thanks to those tiny, apothecary-style glass jars full of unctuous, sweet smelling goo - Morello Cherry for a cheery tint, Tutti Frutti for a moisturising glaze - I haven't been able to resist a lip balm.
Sickness, even sickness conquered, cannot be sexy, or so the marketing logic likely goes. A woman living as a cancer survivor is not just a body transformed, hers is a life transformed. Victoria's Secret could have been a part of this process.

Girls need to start viewing themselves as more than their bodies. Beauty is more than outer appearance, and it's about time women banded together to knock down the image of perfection society has given us.
Stress and anxiety are bad -- for both you and your growing baby. Your kid is super lucky to have a conscientious momma, but don't turn a good thing into a negative one by bugging out about how toxic your shampoo is (easier said than done, I know).
I am afraid of the way I look being the only information that registers about me. It makes me feel flat as a piece of paper, like I can be torn up and then flutter away.
Allure's highlighting of Saldana's weight reduces this talented performer to a one-dimensional image, reinforcing the strange and fraught relationship women (and men) have with one of the most reviled twentieth-century innovations: the bathroom scale.
Two women that for years have been portrayed by the media as the "American Woman's Dream" are now facing scrutiny because of their weights, their pregnancy weights. Amazing. So what exactly does it mean to be too fat and or too skinny in today's society?
