Faces of 50+ Model Search

Remember, you’re never really too old to model because there will always be someone catering to your demographic, and it seems that AARP is that someone right now.

Beginning on June 1, 2007, models (men and women) over the age of 50 will be able to enter online for the Faces of 50+ Real People Model search for the AARP Roadshow. (more…)

France Gives Skinny Model Ban the Boot

We all applauded when the fine folks in Madrid banned models who looked like they were two meals shy of death from the runway, but apparently France missed the memo because it rejected a similar ban on super skinny models.

France will not ban skinny models from Paris catwalks but will introduce a voluntary charter to make the fashion industry more aware of the health risks of being very thin…

France urges care on skinny models but rejects ban

Okay, that smells like a cop out. But, the truth comes out a little later when it’s revealed that those uber-skinny models promoting luxury goods account for a huge portion of France’s exports.

While its understandable that some women are naturally skinny, it’s not too difficult to figure out those who are unhealthy; instead of allowing these walking advertisements for anorexia to influence young girls in the name of fashion, those models need to take their boney behinds to counseling. And it’s time the fashion industry finally took some responsibility for it, too.

The Shocking Has Happened, Kate Moss Announces Fashion Line

Kate Moss Topshop Last year, we mentioned that Kate Moss was working on her fashion line, and it seems that she made good on the claims when she unveiled her new line at a London boutique on Tuesday.

Kate Moss had a rough year last year with all of those drug use allegations flying around, not to mention her checking into rehab. Things certainly seem to be turning around for the waif-thin model with this new success, but it begs the question: how long will it last?

Many US papers and magazines ragged on the line, claiming that it’s unoriginal, however, teenage girls everywhere have already spoken by stalking the UK Topshop store and possibly gouging each others’ eyes out to get the last pair of their favorite skinny jeans before someone else.

I’m really loving the Antique Coin Jersey Waistcoat, but I can see why it may be construed as unoriginal. But, there’s another, possibly more serious, issue at hand.

Moss’ new clothing line contained a range of items such as vests, t-shirts, mini-dresses, and skinny jeans. Moss contributed vastly to the success of the first design of so called skinny jeans. The jeans are made of stretch denim; have abnormally “skinny legs” reportedly fitting so tightly they embody a “sprayed on look”. Critics so far have only taken aim at Moss’ designs lack of originality but it is just a matter of time before the question of “How many girls will starve themselves to fit into Kate Moss’ skinny jeans?” is posed.

Bringing Heroin Chic Style to the Masses: Kate Moss Unveils New Clothing Line

I sincerely hope that this heroin chic clothing line doesn’t have a negative impact on a more robust model’s self image. There are many flavors to women in modeling, while the ideal should be the healthy embodiment of slender curves (you know, how a women naturally looks) that can wear clothing well.

A Pirate (Named Heidi Klum) Invades Germany’s Next Top Model

Everyone needs a laugh occasionally…

Heidi Klum in black lace eye patch Heidi Klum, because of a rampant eye infection that I speculate consumed half of her face, decided that she would rock a ladies’ undergarment as an eye patch, which was kindly pointed out by an anonymous commentator.

(Now that I look at it, it does kinda look like my black Vickies.)

Pirates everywhere are now ashamed to continue calling themselves pirates.

Head over to Us Magazine and cast your vote in the Heidi’s Eye For Fashion poll.
