Scandal’s Kerry Washington In Vanity Fair August 2013

Kerry Washington is, undoubtedly a gorgeous woman. Her gentle eyes compliment her beautiful physical features and her acting success only comes to confirm her many qualities (Kerry is now the star of the new successful TV series ‘Scandal’).

However, seeing her pictorial from Vanity Fair’s August 2013 issue, although signed by the great Norman Jean Roy, got me thinking at how ridiculously gauche the media still is with black women. It’s like they’re walking on thin ice and trying to put the best foot forward and looking for the most delicate step. But lo and behold, the ice still cracks. Why? Because we’re too afraid. Because in our obsession for equality we’re juggling too much and we’re losing the naturalness, the coolness and the easiness.

Kerry Washington’s Vanity Fair had enormous potential. Instead we got a distorted perspective on Kerry’s body because of the pool water in the cover picture and…(hit the jump to read the rest!)

Minimal Wardrobe: Spring Summer 15 Looks With 13 Pieces

I may keep a low profile when it comes to my own personal style but I tried to pick as many evocative topics as to tell you about the minimalistic approach I preach and practice when it comes to my wardrobe or the entire Frizz household fashion. Less is more. You doubt it? I walked both ends of the wardrobe spectrum and came to the conclusion that my fashion and my personal style are way more creative and more inspired when I’m only juggling with basics.

Long story short: this is how you build a minimal wardrobe with just 13 pieces that you can switch back and forth in 15 looks. I’m certain that more is possible and that you have your own minimal mix so if you care to share, I’m all eyes! (I came across this on the vast and inspiring alleys of Pinterest and it was originally created by shopbop dot com)

Kate Upton From Vogue Brazil To Redemption Choppers Campaign

Kate Upton continues her ascension on the fashion’s ladder one Vogue cover at the time. After Anna Wintour named her the world’s hottest supermodel, Vogue Brazil put some nice clothes on the 21-year-old American model and announced the end of the skinny dictatorship.

Whether that will prove to be real, only time will tell. Crystal Renn tried to pull a similar stunt on the fashion industry a couple of years ago and instead of changing the standard fashion body, she changed her own body by dieting/exercising and losing weight again. Will Kate Upton succumb to the same pressure and diminish her voluptuous frame?

Chanel’s Women Only Pre Collection Film, As Weird As You’d Expect

… from a movie signed by Karl Lagerfeld. His mental projections become more and more elaborate, less and less logical. A “women only” psychedelic movie which turns and twists around the corners and puts so many gorgeous models in the same room, chit-chatting carelessly and playing with mini Kaiser dolls?

Seriously? and I thought the last short film he signed for Chanel (with Keira, nonetheless) was silly! But Lagerfeld always surpasses my wildest dreams and expectations, especially when it comes to meaningless cinematography. It just all seems to take place in Lagerfeld’s bubble-world! Hit the jump and see for yourself! This time he has a short cameo! (I was expecting Choupette to pop up her pretty furry head, but sadly, it didn’t happen!)

Wimbledon Nails: Serena Williams White And Orange Funky Nails

We may not watch a lot of sports in the Frizz household but tennis always sneaks in. We have a lot of respect and admiration for this sport and I think I made it clear over the years with stories about this and that tennis player.

Wimbledon is happening as we speak (until July 7) and although some of the major players have already been eliminated (both Nadal and Federer), we can still admire some of our favorite ladies being perfectly passionate and fashionable at the same time! Because Wimbledon still thinks that white is the color of tennis and so the players can’t wear other colors… Except we ladies know that it’s all a game of accessories. And we all love to accessorize and match our nails to the rest of our outfits, our state of spirit, the weather or a movie we’re going to see.

Serena Williams matched her white tennis outfit with a mix of white and orange nail art designs. Visually striking dots and leopard spots, drips and flashes or even kisses can be seen on each of Serena’s nails. I love her idea and the look she sported for the Wimbledon competition! Hopefully it will add to her good hand!

Christy Turlington Is Everywhere This Fall! Chanel, Jason Wu, Prada Ads

Remember we were celebrating the return of the wonderful Christy Turlington a while back, when we talked about her modeling again for Calvin Klein? Well, it’s not just for CK! This week we discovered a radiant Christy Turlington Burns in campaigns for Jason Wu, Chanel and Prada.

While I’m still disturbed by the body-double thing in Kate Moss’ Stuart Weitzman ad campaign, I’m looking at the always gorgeous Christy and ask myself if it’s really her in all the shots! Who’s to say, now that there were no paps outside the location where the ad campaigns were photographed, nobody really knows if they haven’t used the same double-trick in these ads as well!

Kate Moss Needs A Body Double For This Stuart Weitzman Ad Campaign?

These are strange times we’re living in, my dahlings! Not only does the pressure of looking younger with every year keeps on growing alarmingly, but! With every season we see more and more altered ad campaigns for the purpose of illustrating that the fountain of youth does exists (in various apps and image retouching programs).

However, reading that for the upcoming Stuart Weitzman Fall 2013 ad campaign even Kate Moss used a body double is beyond my understanding! The woman is 39 and she’s still looking hotter than most of the women of the world will ever look, and even after being the fashion industry for more than two decades she still gets more covers, pictorials and campaigns than any other model!
