dolled up

I'm a believer in the "less is more" philosophy of beauty - a little mascara, a little tinted lipbalm, (eyeliner if I'm feeling especially fancy) et voilĂ ! - but I'll admit that I enjoy looking at all the colors, shimmers and sparkles.

I understand that applying makeup is an art and all those little potions and pots of color are the medium...

but...



whatever happened to "pretty"?

I know an excellent plastic surgeon who could take care of that teratoma on her forehead in just a couple of trips to the OR.

I thought raccoon eye makeup went out in the 80's, though.

Rabbit.

why does the girl in the second pic have an extremely phallic looking object on her head?

I like it - if only because it proves the SciFi movies from the sixties right about fashion in the future.

"pretty" does not apply to any fashion runway. That's just a fact!

I massaged a model a few weeks ago; not a famous one or anything, and I don't think she could have been a fashion model, she was just too short...but, my GOD, she was thin. I could tell, though, that she fell into the .1% of the female population that is just genetically like that. She had good muscle tone, but her thighs didn't touch at the top. That's just not normal! ;)

rabbit - everything old is new again, apparently

lydia - I thought it looked like a big purple scrotum too.

ibex - yep, definite Star Trek vibe.

christina - thighs are supposed to touch at the top, else certain things would whistle when the wind blows. (Wouldn't they?) ;)

I see the giant tumor look is in this year.

I've been informed by people who are more knowledgeable about the world of fashion than I am that the purpose of those ridiculous runway displays isn't to actually showcase any fashion they think any woman breathing would ever wear of her own free will, it's to let the designers play.

This has led to my deep belief that the actual point of runway shows is a competition among the designers to see who can get the models to look the most ridiculous before open rebellion breaks out.

Breda, yeah you wouldn't want the wind whistling THERE.

To me, tumor-girl looks like she's supposed to be one of those weird birds, you know a pheasant maybe? Don't they have doo-dads on the top of their heads?

beastly. Just because something CAN be done, doesn't mean it SHOULD be done. Yuck.
