In Praise Of The Eyebrow-Free Face

I certainly could never do it, but I do love the otherworldly, sort of feral look that shaving one’s eyebrows gives the face. Take model Guinevere Van Seenus in this Vogue Italia editorial shot by Tim Walker — her brows are so faded out they look nonexistent, and give her face a wild, alien quality. Model Lara Stone’s been rocking the minimal eyebrows look forever. Again, it’s not for every face, but on the women who can pull it off, it’s a very distinctive and daring look.

Study: Anorexia Linked To Spring Birthdays

Scientists and health practitioners are constantly looking to discover what causes and triggers eating disorders, and scientists at Oxford University have seemingly discovered a link between birth dates and anorexia. A study of almost 1300 anorexic patients found that most of their birthdays fell in the spring months, from March to June. That’s led scientists to hypothesize that a disposition toward eating disorders may be linked to a mother’s lack of vitamin D while pregnant, since women typically receive less vitamin D during long winter months. The study also noted that several celebrities who have struggled from eating disorders — including Karen Carpenter, Alanis Morissette and Victoria Beckham — were all born in the spring.

Princess Beatrice is the daughter of sort-of disgraced ex-royal Sarah Ferguson. Also, she really knows how to wear a crazy fascinator, as evidenced by that showpiece she wore to today’s Wedding of the Century.

Size Ain’t Nothing But A Number — The Truth About Vanity Sizing

Celebs! They’re just as sized obsessed as us! But they’ve got a team of stylists, editors and handlers to make them feel good. And they’ve got a media industry complicit in helping them combat body and size issues. On “The Today Show” earlier this week, More magazine editor Lesley Jane Seymour revealed the sad truth about how the celeb style machine really works. “When we go to shoots it’s all about the ego,” Seymour says. “If a celebrity says she’s a size 8 and we know she’s not, we cut the sizes out because we know she won’t put it on if it says it’s a 10.” So that’s how they do it!

But vanity sizing, and size-related tips and tricks aren’t just for celebs. Keep reading »
