In seventh grade, I took a family trip to India and my weight was the hot topic. Family members I hadn't seen in years commented on how "fat" I had become; and when I walked into stores to buy sarees or lenghas, store owners told my mom it wouldn't look good on me or fit. It was blunt, but it was normal.
When I had the opportunity to learn how renowned, esteemed and amazingly talented and successful designer Alice McCall shot her Cruise Collection (available beginning October) campaign, I jumped at the chance to get a glimpse.
A bunch of rad actresses tweeted breastfeeding pictures we've taken on set, at auditions, at rehearsal or at home with the aim of taking nursing out of the shadows and promoting our ongoing efforts to increase awareness and prompt actual change within our industry.
Chastising people for natural curiosity while hauling out the same old tired observations about cultural sexism is, in my opinion, not useful. It's harmful. It adds nothing new to the conversation. And this conversation needs something new. You can do better.
These days there are so many five-star accommodations, offering such a stunning array of luxury amenities, that it seems like they pop up on every block. But which one stands out? I asked a few celebrities about their favourite places to stay when visiting the Best Coast.
If there's one thing that defines female casual style, it's our love for denim. Since exploding on the style scene as far back as 1873 (by a fellow you might've heard of, Mr. Levi Strauss), the"'blue jean" has become the go-to-for-almost-every-occasion item in our closets. It's one fashion item that we.all.have.
Whatever you put on to go to work should make you look like you are part of the team and that you can do what you are supposed to, comfortably and professionally.
Genetics are often to blame for hair loss, and rightfully so, at least in many cases. But while genetics are the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women, for some, hair loss can be caused by a variety of other reasons.
There is so much more to a show than what the immediate eye can see; the runway, the collection, the front row fixtures... what about the invisible teams that make it all come together? From London Fashion Week, to Men's Fashion Week in Milan, to Miami's sizzling Swim Week, I examine the symbiotic relationship between the front and back, and everything in between.
Why are most lingerie lines toggling between the comfort and the sexy side, but never mending the two looks? It seems that as much as we would like to show our power and eminent equality in every other aspect of life, when it comes to our bosoms, we still put slinky and attractive into the same category.
A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.
Perhaps you've thought of trying one of the many at-home handheld devices, such as the Quasar MD Plus that Kim Kardashian uses (apparently, she's "really big on laser facials"). LED skin treatments all the rage nowadays. Here's what you need to know about them.
At 52 I can already see the signs of aging on my skin. It's not always easy to embrace a new fine line or wrinkle and a sagging neck. But I also realize that I'm lucky. I have a pretty healthy-looking complexion. And this is the result of a lifetime of taking care of it.
I really think I've got enough to worry about as the number of birthday candles on my cake soon reaches 69. First it's adjusting to the sagging pouches of skin adorning each side of my mouth -- then it's the dark circles under my eyes.
A fashion faux-pas is what is considered a style blunder. It is something one must not do, in order to not deviate from the societal norm, and spare oneself embarrassment. So they say. Concepts of what's fashionable and what's not, are subjective and ever-changing.
The footwear is very high quality featuring Goodyear welting, allowing for the soles to be removed and replaced over the years, while also being incredibly weather resistant. The whole grain leathers are soft and supple. The interior lining is green, the colour of balance, harmony and (let's face it) money, which makes sense given that each style is inspired by an entrepreneur Milton and Brigitte admire.
