I was absentmindedly flipping through the massive October issue of InStyle¬†magazine over the weekend when I paused on a page in the “Beauty At Any Age” section. Titled, “Pucker Up! Secrets To Full, Smooth Lips,” the page included recommendations for skincare products and lip gloss for women of different ages. Pretty standard fashion magazine fodder. But down at the bottom of the page was something that wasn’t so standard: recommendations for plastic surgery procedures. “Lusting after lush, pillowy lips and a dramatically smoother smile?” the text read. “All it may take is a few quick shots.”

This Is What Happens When You Pose Like A Model In Public

If you read a lot of fashion magazines, even the most contorted poses start to look familiar and even normal. It’s pretty jarring to see them taken out of context, and I think it says a lot about the way the fashion world views women. Check it out and let us know what you think! [YouTube] Keep reading »

Do You Have A Toxic Relationship With Fashion Magazines?

I have loved fashion magazines since I was a teen. I love the creative editorials and the styling ideas and the designer profiles, and for some reason I continue to love fashion magazines even though the Marie Claire fiasco last week reminded me that they don’t love me back. It’s a toxic relationship, really: they tell me I’m not rich enough or pretty enough or thin enough but I just keep coming back… Keep reading »

Quotable: Fergie On Being Called “Fugly”

“It has hurt me in the past when people say things like how ‘fugly’ I am or how horrible I look. I’ve had to learn not to give it such a high priority in life…. Look, when you’re trying to juggle all of this in your life, sometimes you’re not going to look perfect. I don’t have time to get a facial every couple of days.”

Fergie in Elle this month, on how she handles being called “fugly,” ahem. Another look at the fashion story, after the jump! [Elle]
