Fashion Modeling & Its Occupational Hazards

Chemistry.com

So many factors determine how successful a fashion model can become - age, height, weight, and even skin color. The road to becoming the "it" model is very competitive and should really come with a health warning.


"BEST BEFORE" LABEL

International fashion models start as young as 12 years old. At this age, society is still accepting if she is 5'8" and weighs 100lbs. But what happens when she gets older? How does she keep up with competing against the younger models with natural waiflike bodies? This is one of the main reasons models in their late teens and early twenties develop eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.

"In 1965, the average model weighed 8 percent less than the average woman. Now she weighs 23 percent less, according to the National Eating Disorders Association." The Examiner.

Competition can kill you. Brazilian model Ana Carolina Reston died at the age of 21 from a generalized infection weighing only 88 pounds.


"CAN LEAD TO SUBSTANCE ABUSE" LABEL

The life of a supermodel is very glamorous. She gets paid a lot of money, visit exotic destinations and meet interesting people. Her daily life is filled with go-sees, fashion booking.... And parties. Imagine sending your 12 year old daughter without a chaperone to Paris or Tokyo. Exactly. Without parental supervision, models are susceptible to the substance abuse that is commonly associated with the jet set lifestyle.

Party favours almost killed the career of Kate Moss when she was photographed snorting it up her nose. Alcoholism has ended one too few supermodel careers like Janet Dickinson's. Designer drugs that slows down natural changes in a woman's body - hips and breasts - are popular with models who want to get an edge on the competition - "A fashion designer first introduced me to it, and the waif look has always been favoured by the best designers. It's much easier simply not to finish puberty than it is to binge diet."

    Could Eyelid Surgery Be Obsolete?

    Cingular Wireless, LLC

    The recent surge in cosmetic eye surgery demonstrates the need for increased education for the many people wanting to improve their appearance and especially for those considering a procedure to enhance the eyes. The general public needs to know that a surgical eyelift for cosmetic purposes might be obsolete and probably unnecessary according to Cynthia Rowland, creator of Facial Magic.

    "Anyone considering a brow lift, eyelid surgery or under eye work must know there are serious drawbacks and possible complications to every surgery and that no procedure is absolutely safe," states Rowland. "There is an all natural eye lift alternative that can produce astounding results in less time than it takes to heal from any surgical procedure. You can self treat with one or two simple exercise movements and have amazing results that absolutely rivals the success of surgery."

    Over 200,000 elective eye surgeries were performed in 2005 that raised drooping eyebrows, removed fatty tissue and tightened aging skin around the eyes at an average cost of $3,000 to $5,000 for each procedure.

    "Drooping eyebrows are usually the first sign of aging and many people believe they can only correct this with surgery. It's just not true," claims Rowland. "Exercise can stop the need for cosmetic surgery and with exercise the risk of complications goes to zero."

    "I encourage everyone to become better informed regarding elective surgical procedures. There are huge downsides that people tend to gloss over and dismiss when they see Mother Nature tromping across their face," Rowland says.

    Those downsides include pain, infection, disappointment, scarring, loss of sensation, discoloration, bruising and blurred vision. With exercise you look refreshed and revitalized - Yes, it's true, you can look younger and fool Mother Nature without surgery, drugs or invasive procedures.

      Exercises are great for toning many body areas. I would sorry that exercises for the face would create more lines, though. Aren't crows feet the result of repetitive movements? Exercise is repetitive movement!

    Mohapatra Completes Fall 2007 J Mendel Collection for the Bryant Park Fashion Shows on March 8th





    The Fall 2007 collection has, yet again, a very fresh and young spirit. Following on last seasons critically acclaimed Spring 2007 J Mendel show in the tents at Bryant Park, Bibhu Mohapatra and Gilles Mendel are putting the finishing touches on the fall 2007 collection.

    With his usual creative spirit and passion Bibhu Mohapatra is using extravagant materials; from gold washed canvases to fine minks, fine silk mousselines and silk gazaars. The looks have become more tailored and classic.

    The J. Mendel label stands for high style, integrity of design and clothes that are made with classic couture techniques. This hip couture house is turning up the heat under the direction of Bibhu Mohapatra.

    Mohapatra and his team, in a uniquely extravagant way, create many pieces from which the final looks for the runway are selected. "Neither Gilles nor Bibhu is shy about cutting a look that might have required many hundreds of hours to create in order to maintain the look and the context envisioned for the core of the collection." After seven years with the label, Bibhu still relies on the savvy eye of Gilles Mendel for conceptual guidance, but has complete freedom to create from his sole and follow his instincts. This is the sole of a brilliant young designer. Only his team of Hindu gods know what his future has in hold.

    Bibhu has just completed one of his first solo projects, an enchanting, understated yet wildly luxurious wedding gown for Allison Beard, a Saddle Bred equestrian World Champion. The wedding will be in Tampa on March 17th this year.

    While at J. Mendel, Mohapatra has designed clothes for Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julian Moore, Eve, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Salma Hayak, Mandy Moore, Gwen Stefani and Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, Britney Spears, Jessica Lange, Melania Trump, Halle Berry, Julian Moore, Kate Blanchett, Terry Hatcher, Laura Linney, The line has been featured in every major fashion magazine, Vogue, Harpers, Elle, In style, Nirali Magazine, WWD.

    "For spring (2007), he was thinking more geometrically. Overlapping circles were a recurring motif on everything from a chocolate patent-leather coat to his new suit: a short-sleeve jacket with volume below the bust worn with a pleated, full skirt. And to drive home the point that he can do more than evening, he even tried his hand at denim. A stiff, midnight blue, it was sliced and chevroned like his furs, and oozed uptown cool."

    (PRWEB) January 28, 2007

    What Causes Cellulite?

    Cellulite develops when the connective tissue that lies between the skin and muscle weakens. The honeycomb-shaped fibers become thin and weak. Fat cells swell and begin to push through those weakened fibers, leading to visible pitting and lumping on the skin's surface.

    Body Shape helps diminish the appearance of cellulite and helps restore skin to its youthful and firm tone and texture. The formula's natural nutrients shrink cellulite-causing fat cells and encourage circulation to the essential skin fibers.

    Whether you exercise every day or are fighting cellulite caused by bad genes, I know that Body Shape will become your person beauty solution. In fact, I'm so sure that we've decided to back this scientific formula with a 100% money-back guarantee.

    Paris Hilton's Pet Lifestyle Brand - Haute Couture Doggie Style

    Chemistry.com

    Is Paris Hilton following the steps of Daddy Hilton?

    First there was the handbag company her sister Nikki and her opened, then came the Simple Life Reality Show, her own brand of perfume..... And now, the newest entrepreneur venture for this trust fund baby is her own Pet Lifestyle Brand.

    It seems that everything Paris touches turns into a marketing opportunity.

    In March 2005, Tinkerbell, her pooch, became the unofficial spokesperson for Little Lily , one of the hippest doggie couture labels. We all knew then that it was a matter of time before Lilyboots (the Jimmy Chewz of the dog world) was going to be a common sighting amongst our downtown streets.

    "Lily follows the latest trends in people fashion when designing for dogs, creating people clothes for dogs and not just doggie clothing. From their own velour jumpsuits to their pink Lilyboots, Little Lily allows dogs to be dressed from head to paws in the most fashionable designs that are ultra comfortable and functional at the same time. The concept of Little Lily is not just creating dog products, but designing a lifestyle for dog owners. Little Lily believes that your dog is an extension of you, and you should care for your dog like you would care for yourself. People say you are what you wear; Little Lily believes you are what your dog wears." Little Lily Press Release, March 29, 2005

    Little Lily co-founders Lara Alameddine and Daniel Dubiecki will be assisting Paris Hilton in designing and developing the label. Judging from what Little Lily has in their collection and their past joint collaboration with Care Bears and Sanrio, we have much to look forward to.

    I wonder if this brand will extend to making match outfits for the dog owners?

    I myself will go and convince my fiance to acquire a Chihuahua so I can be part of this big trend. Or not....

    Hollywood Reality Check: PETA Kills Animals

    CheapTickets

    Thursday's Hollywood Edition of Variety is running a full page letter from The Center of Consumer Freedom, a consumer watchdog group.

    It's target? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), or as the letter states, lack thereof.

    They want to send a message out to celebrities that support PETA that "they're supporting a radical agenda". They are calling on Pamela Anderson, Simon Cowell, Moby, and Jorja Fox just to name a few to withdraw their support for the puppy and kitten killers.

    These strong accusations come after two PETA employees in North Carolina were charged with animal cruelty felony after being caught redhanded by the police tossing out the bodies of 31 dead pets into a trash dumpster. The Center of Consumer Freedom wants to know why the $25 million a year that PETA takes in is not enough to care for these healthy animals instead of putting them to death in the back of a PETA van.

    According to the State of Virginia, this is not an isolated incident. Since 1998, public records show that 14,400 pets have died at the hands of PETA. A website called PETA Kills Animals says that in 2005 PETA killed 90 percent of the animals it took in.

    To find out more on this issue, check out Thursday's edition of Variety.

      That's just sick! I'm not a big fan of PETA anyways, but this hypocracy is just wrong, on so many fonts.

    Jennifer Hudson To Perform In A Tribute to Aretha Franklin

    ChangeOneDiet.com from Reader's Digest

    I was very ecstatic to see Jennifer Hudson win one of the most coveted Golden Globe awards - Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. She had some tough competition from veteran actresses Cate Blanchett (my all-time favourite) and Emily Blunt. As a relative newcomer in the entertainment industry, Jennifer Hudson came armed with a lot of raw talent and determination. I am sure we will be seeing her name in the official list of Oscar nominees.

    Jennifer Hudson's next television appearance will be at the 28th annual United Negro College Fund (UNCF) An Evening Of Stars (R) Tribute to Aretha Franklin where she will be performing two of Aretha's best-known hits, "Think" and "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)".

    This all-star telecast celebrating The Queen of Soul will air nationally on January 27th and 28th. It is marked as a historic event, as it is the first ever to showcase performances from a Golden Globe Winner (Jennifer Hudson) and seven 2007 Grammy nominees - Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone, Al Jarreau, Kiki Sheard, Smokey Robinson and Natalie Cole.

    "We are very proud of all the Grammy nominees," said Michael L. Lomax, Ph.D., president and CEO of UNCF. "And especially pleased for Ms. Hudson and her Golden Globe Award. There was no doubt in our minds when we invited her to appear on AEOS that we had a superstar in our midst," he continued. "The entire lineup is a group full of talent who share UNCF's commitment to providing educational opportunities to young men and women who are longer on potential than on resources."

    An Evening Of Stars(R) first aired in 1979 and has raised over 200 million for the UNCF to supplement the cost of higher education for scholarship recipients and member institutions. Past show performers include all time favourites Bill Cosby, Sammy Davis, Jr., Beyonce Knowles, Whoopi Goldberg, and Patti LaBelle.

    Kevin Federline to Star in Nationwide Super Bowl Ad, Life Comes at You Fast

    CellularFactory

    Columbus, OH (PRWEB) January 22, 2007 -- Nationwide announced today that it will continue its award-winning Life Comes at You Fast advertising campaign with its second national Super Bowl ad, featuring Kevin Federline.

    No one has personified Life Comes at You Fast in the media better than Kevin Federline. Our partnership with Kevin shows the world that he has a great sense of humor. He's poking fun at himself, and in the process gets to have the last word.

    Typical of other ads in the Life Comes at You Fast campaign, the spot opens with a situation that changes in a dramatic and unexpected way. Just as viewers believe they are seeing a Kevin Federline rap video, the ad takes a funny, surprise twist. Nationwide's Life Comes at You Fast slogan is the punchline.

    "The Life Comes at You Fast concept was created to remind people that they need to think about preparing for the future," said Steven Schreibman, vice president of advertising and brand management for Nationwide. "No one has personified Life Comes at You Fast in the media better than Kevin Federline. Our partnership with Kevin shows the world that he has a great sense of humor. He's poking fun at himself, and in the process gets to have the last word."

    This is the third Nationwide ad to feature a well-known celebrity. International romance icon Fabio starred in the company's first national Super Bowl ad in 2006. Rapper M.C. Hammer was the star of the 2005 campaign.

    In keeping with its unique campaign, Nationwide ads use humor to make an important point: Life Comes at You Fast - often before you realize it. Whether it's getting married, having a child, buying a new home, or saving for college or retirement, advance preparation is key, especially when it comes to insurance and financial planning.

    "We're using humor and a celebrity to get people's attention and cut through the clutter with a very serious message," said Schreibman. "You need to be prepared for life to change, because change is inevitable."

    This is the fourth consecutive year of the Life Comes at You Fast advertising campaign, produced by T:M Advertising of Dallas, and Nationwide's most aggressive brand advertising push ever. In addition to the Super Bowl, Nationwide's 2007 ad buy will include 45 regional markets, national cable and national internet. The Federline ad will be one of a series of new Life Comes at You Fast ads.

    The ad will run during the third quarter of the Super Bowl and will be available at www.nationwide.com beginning January 29.

    Nationwide, based in Columbus, Ohio, is one of the largest diversified insurance and financial services organizations in the world, with more than $158 billion in assets. Nationwide ranks #98 on the Fortune 100 list. The company provides a full range of insurance and financial services, including auto, motorcycle, boat, homeowners, life, commercial insurance, administrative services, annuities, mortgages, mutual funds, pensions and long-term savings plans.

    Grammy-Winning R&B Music Superstar CIARA Featured Artist of the Month on Music Choice During February




    New York, NY (Billboard Publicity Wire/PRWeb ) January 22, 2007 -- Music Choice, the leading, multi-platform music network, today announced that Grammy-winning, multi-platinum R&B star, Ciara will be featured on its February edition of 'Artist of the Month.' The Artist of the Month promotional campaign brings both the music and words of today's hottest artists to millions of music fans through their TVs and PCs.

    Throughout the month, Music Choice On Demand will feature unique original programming, including an up-close and personal interview and a hot video list hosted by one of today's most popular young female artists--Ciara, whose new album on LaFace Records, "The Evolution," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and has since gone Platinum. Also available for viewing throughout the month will be a wide selection of music videos from Ciara's debut album, "Goodies," and her current hit album, "The Evolution." Viewers can watch "Promise," "Goodies," "1,2 Step," "Get Up," "Lose Control," and many more of Ciara's videos as often as they like at no cost.

    "Ciara is in a league of her own," says Julia Lipari, SVP/Head of Marketing at Zomba Label Group. "To look at her music videos alone, all of which are groundbreaking seminal clips, is to witness enormous talent and creativity. We are thrilled Music Choice has chosen to honor Ciara during the month of February by offering Music Choice On Demand viewers the opportunity to see how much she has accomplished, and why she has touched so many fans. In other words, they will experience the evolution of Ciara. She is arguably the most talented young female entertainer in the industry today."

    "Music Choice recognized Ciara's musical talent very early in her career," says Lamonda Williams, Director of Urban Music Programming for Music Choice. "Ciara is a perfect addition to the list of superstar artists we have showcased on our Artist of the Month program because of her massive appeal to our audience of millions of music fans nationwide. Music Choice not only showcases the music of this R & B superstar, but we also give our audience a chance to know the person behind the music through the original programming offered as part of our Artist of the Month feature."

    Music Choice On-Demand, the #1 free video-on-demand music service in the country, and Music Choice for broadband, the free music service for cable modem subscribers, will feature three original programs in February featuring Ciara to watch whenever - and however often - at no charge.

    1) Ciara: The Evolution of Dance - A Hot Video List hosted by Ciara where she reveals several of her favorite dance videos.

    2) Ciara: Naked - Up-Close and Personal Interview with Ciara where she talks openly about her phenomenal success as a singer, songwriter, producer and performer.

    3) Ciara: The Evolution of Ciara - A journey into the life of Ciara featuring the artist's views on her growth as a recording artist with two hit albums, her ventures into the business world, and the challenges of trying to keep her personal life private.


    In addition, the Music Choice audio service, which reaches over 30 million homes nationwide, will feature audio tracks from Ciara's two albums on its Hit List and R & B music channels.

    APO Jeans - The Classiest Bling In Town

    If these jeans walked by you, you probably would not recognize that they are one of the most expensive jeans in the world.

    APO Jeans decided to apt for a subtler, elegant approach, unlike other blinged out jeans from the Roberto Cavalli and Escada collection that shimmers from a mile away. Up close and personal you will notice the trademark rivets - stylish bling for the front, coin and back pockets. And starting at $4000 a piece, you would definitely expect the best - custom tailored, $40/yard denim with choices of several different washes, satin silk pockets, and yes, 48-carat diamonds. Calvin Stewart, the mastermind designer behind APO Jeans, has also created a top-secret method to prevent fakes from copying his design and keeping your one-of-a kind creation original.

    The APO Jeans experience starts with the selection of the jean style and denim wash at their Manhattan store. Then the client is measured for the right fit.

    We custom-make any style ...Our clients usually know what they don't like about their off the shelf jeans, and will tell us how to custom-make it to exactly how they want it to fit their body...We usually custom make the fit based on the popular styles that's in the market such as boot cut, straight cut, easy fit. - Kingman Lam, Chief Executive of APO jeans.

    The selection of diamonds are also done in the store, unless, of course, the client wants to chose the clarity, colour, carat and cut of the diamonds, then it is done at a nearby jewelry store within the district. Each Diamond Label jeans come with 6 rivets for the front and coin pocket, with an option for 4 more rivets for the back pocket.

    It takes 8 - 12 weeks to produce and deliver a custom design. Each jeans will be personalized with the clients name and a born on date. To ensure its authenticity and ID number is provided, as well as an appraisal sheet from a top jeweller in the NY diamond district.

    APO Jeans wants to be known for quality. So, which famous derriere's do we know appreciate a good couturier? I am sure that it will just be time before we see Melania Trump, Sienna Miller, Jamie Foxx or even Tom Cruise posing with the brand.

    If diamonds are not your choice of bling, APO Jeans also offer silver, 14K White or Yellow Gold, and Platinum buttons & rivets - prices start at $1,000.00. APO Jeans is also launching their Blue Label in Spring 2007 that will be available in high-end stores worldwide. Ready to purchase your own APO Jeans? Visit their store in New York at 147 W 35th St, or visit their Website at http://www.apojeans.net.

    Positive Aging Discussed by World-renowned Psychiatrist Jean Shinoda Bolen

    Carabella Corporation

    San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2007 -- Too many people are "waiting for an assignment" to make the latter third of their lives make a difference and be meaningful. World-renowned Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen appears live on Internet radio's Full Power Living (worldtalkradio dot com) Thursday, January 25, 2007 (9 a.m. PT) to discuss ideas from several of her books, including Urgent Message from Mother, Crones Don't Whine and Goddesses in Older Women, as we explore how to make one's "golden years" truly golden.

    Calling all Baby Boomers! You've danced through the Flower Child years, discoed into the night, created a niche in the world of work for your Authentic Self, seen Hale-Bopp and recycled to save the planet. Now you're hitting your 60's, a time, traditionally, for retirement, re-definition of your life, and rest. Will you retire? Will you renew? How will you create meaning for your life now, particularly in these trying times? Dr. Bolen has been pondering, researching and writing about these issues for years. She has some answers--and she can answer your questions, live, at 866-613-1612 on January 25th.

    Jean Shinoda Bolen brings an emphasis on the question for meaning and the need for a spiritual dimension in life to all aspects of her work, while also taking into account the powerful effects of archetypes within us and family and culture upon us. Her books are used as college and university texts in gender studies, women's psychology, mythology, spirituality, east-west philosophy, and psychology. World renowned, Dr. Bolen is a psychiatrist who has been helping people the world over for more than 45 years. A Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen has served with the American Psychiatric Association, the International Transpersonal Association, the American Academy of Psychoanalysis, the Ms. Foundation for Women, and the Association for Women in Psychiatry. She is in the widely acclaimed documentary, "Goddess Remembered," the first of the Canadian Film Board's trilogy.

    Full Power Living is created and hosted by Ilene Dillon, M.S.W. Focused on "awakening the world to the power and importance of human emotions," past featured guests have included Drs.Harville Hendrix and Helen L. Hunt (Finding the Love You Want), Dr. Bruce Lipton (The Biology of Belief), Dr. Candace Pert (What the Bleep Do We Know and Molecules of Emotion), Yale's Dr. Becca Levy, Susan Page (If I'm So Wonderful, Why Am I Still Single?), Dr. Michael Brickey (Defy Aging), Dr. James Pennebaker (Opening Up!), Gordon-Michael Scallion and Cynthia Keyes (Earth Changes) and Gregg Braden (The Isaiah Effect and The God Code) among its more than 100 broadcasts. Live shows air 9 a.m. PT (noon ET) every Thursday and can be heard on archives 24/7.

    An in-depth look at what aging can mean for all of us, Thursday, January 25, 2007 at 9 a.m. PT on worldtalkradio dot com, featuring world-renowned Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen. Call in live at 866-613-1612.
