French Women Don’t Get Fat! Politicians In France Propose Airbrush Warnings

You believed French women looked gorgeous naturally, didn’t you? Quel suprise! Airbrushing is causing unrealistic body images and encouraging eating disorders, said a French politician on Monday as she proposed warning labels on digitally enhanced images. Parlimentarian Valerie Boyer and 50 other French politicians want a “health warning” on airbrushed pics. All enhanced photos would be accompanied by this line: “Photograph retouched to modify the physical appearance of a person.” Under the proposal in France, a company that didn’t include the warning on their retouched ads would be slapped with a trés mal fine of a $54,930, or up to 50 percent the cost of the advertisement. The French proposal comes on the heels of a suggestion by British pols for warning labels of their own. But what we want to know is how long until such a proposal comes to the States, where we just love our Photoshop? (And can you imagine what Anna Wintour would have to say about it?)

Mathematical Proof That Fashion Trends Really Are Cyclical

Fab Finds In A Fashion Editor’s Closet



Sasha Charnin Morrison keeps a slightly lower profile than that other fashion editor the world is getting to know better, Anna Wintour. But she is a Major-with-a-capital-M player, having worked at all the top glossies like Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Allure, and she is now the Fashion Director at US Weekly. She’s also really hilarious and defies the stereotype her species is known for by being a total rock star in the sweetheart department. She let another lovable fashionista, Abby Gardner from, ahem, Fashionista.com, in to see her closet and let’s just say Sasha’s got a bag collection that would make Kimora Lee jelso. Speaking of envy, watch for the custom Steven Sprouse dress that turned Kate Moss green with the stuff. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

An Ode To “The Wizard of Oz”

There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home. And there’s no movie quite like “The Wizard of Oz,” which turns 70 this week. Munchkin Land, the ruby slippers, the flying monkeys, the Emerald City—this 1939 blockbuster still has no expiration date. It gave us songs you still know by heart and images which still amaze, even in the age of CGI effects. It spawned fantastic remakes such as “The Wiz” and “Tin Man.” Raise your hand if you were ever forced to watch a carefully timed demonstration of how cosmically the movie’s first scenes line up with side one of “Dark Side of the Moon”!

    A 56-Year-Old Virgin!


    Last week, a retired school teacher named Deborah Parish came before the Texas Board of Education to argue for sex education in schools. “Kids are not ready to be parents, nor are they ready to have AIDS,” she said. I don’t think anyone’s ever ready to have AIDS, but that’s besides the point. “I don’t think any of these people know you can have sexual satisfaction without taking your clothes off,” she said. “OK, embarrassment, I’m 56 years old and I’m a virgin … technically.” A few minutes later, Deborah was interrupted and told that she had arrived to the hearing a day late for that particular topic. The Board was currently discussing physical education and alcohol awareness. [Gawker] — Awwwwkard. Keep reading »
