Photographed by Terry Richardson, he published some gorgeous snaps of her in black and white on his website and Sofia also appears on the August cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

For the record, Sofia, who is 41 years old believes in Sandy’s ‘Less is not more’ logic and doesn’t get tired of all the work she puts into being gorgeous bombshell, all the time:

“No, I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic. I shower, do hair and makeup. for me, it’s like shaving. I don’t believe in natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you’re Gisele Bundchen or 19, you need something!”

She’s awesome.

Animal Nursery Editorial Controversy

Hi Poutlings

upton3

Here are some photos from a Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot featuring Kate Upton and some exotic fur babies. There is a lot of controversy, of course, as there always is with Miss Upton. However, before I touch on that, please can I confess – I love Kate’s styling in these photos. It’s very retro, but it’s incredibly flattering. I love the fact that no boobs are pushed on you when looking at these images, and I lovelovelove the fact that Bazaar has some hair and makeup people who weren’t hypnotised by her boobies and actually put some great effort in to make her look great!

The controversy? The editorial is aptly named “The Animal Nursery” and the theme is that Kate, is not only a largely talented breasted model, acting as a nurse to baby animals, and she poses winningly while holding up various kinds of animals.

The shoot was styled by Carine Roitfeld and it will appear in all 26 international editions of the magazine. This is hardly the first time a major fashion magazine appears tone deaf about how fashion editorials are accessorised. Vogue recently went under fire by using actual babies as accessories for fashion shoots, and just a couple of months ago, Vogue did an absolutely terrible shoot in the areas of New York which were drastically affected by Hurricane Sandy. So, where does “using endangered baby animals”” fall on the list of editorial disasters?

Fashionista reached out to Harper’s Bazaar, but no one at the magazine would issue any statements. Fashionista also reached out to Zoological Wildlife Foundation, which apparently provided the animals for the shoot, and they wouldn’t go on record either. But, as always PETA did, FYI – I am not a fan of PETA however their statement was interesting…

“The gibbon featured in the photographs is an infant and should be with his mother at all times. Besides the emotional trauma that he has undoubtedly suffered as a result of the separation, his delicate immune system is still developing, and he is susceptible to illness that humans carry. All the animals in the photographs are endangered and should be protected rather than being treated like props.”

Now, PETA, are melodramatic all the time, however – if all of what they are saying is true, (I’m not claiming to know because I am not a vet), then the gibbon should most definitely be with its mother. Damn. As for the little tiger… I think he is adorable. I wish he would follow me home and he could be my tiger for life. I bet he has super sharp kitten claws though… and to honest, that is what bothers me most about this shoot – that they had all those babies together on the set. What if the baby tiger thought the gibbon was a playmate and those kitten claws come out and then…? Disaster.

Anyway, what are your thoughts?

NSFW: Plastic Surgery Themed Editorial In Noi.se Magazine

[NB: NSFW stands for NOT SAFE FOR WORK.  I’m serious; close the browser if you do not want to get fired. Thank you. This public service announcement is brought to you from Pout Perfection’s stay employed innitiative]

Hiya Poutlings!plastic-surgery1

Of all the self-referential ways the fashion world comments on itself, plastic surgery-themed editorials are simply one of the best. That is because most efforts at self-reference, in all contexts fashion or not, come off with a hint of self-indulgent and a dash of un-self-critical, while it’s pretty f*cking impossible for a decent plastic surgery themed editorial to do that.

plastic-surgery2-324x400plastic-surgery3-321x400

The imagery of plastic surgey is so grotesque that it makes you think “Oh, that’s AWFUL!” even if you still want to look like the model therein. These photos, for lack of a better word, “expose” the price of beauty, if you can call it that.

plastic-surgery4-321x400plastic-surgery5-322x400

It also just happens to appeal to my inner Gothic sensibilities (I was a terrible Goth, I could never shut up) because once you grown up listening to Marilyn Manson you will never not enjoy a photo that combines the glamorous with the macabre.

Roll up, roll up! Come and marvel at our illegal clinic. Blunt sharps and filthy gloves.The surgeon (butcher?) chainsmokes throughout the operation. But that’s ok, cause so does the patient. Come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab! I see you shiver with anticipation?…

Additionally, it echoes a Suicidegirls photoset published during the site’s heyday, which was humorous and compelling enough to still be stuck in my mind, seven years later. Related, that makes me feel old.

FITNESS MAGAZINE

FITNESS MAGAZINE!

20120920-144418.jpg

Being a fitness fanatic, I am completely in love with FITNESS MAGAZINE !

Never have I come across a magazine so informative and interesting, I have been buying and reading this magazine religiously for over 2 years now, never once have I been disappointed in it.

Being from South Africa, a lot of our fitness magazines were imported from overseas, which I didn’t bother buying due to the fact that if there were recipes or anything in them, I wouldn’t find half the ingredients or clothing and supplements they had for sale or advertised in the magazine.

Having fallen in love with FITNESS MAGAZINE SOUTH AFRICA I would highly recommended this magazine to any fitness fanatic, or those starting off new in the gym or fitness and health lifestyle.

Fitness magazine is very comprehensive, they have articles for beginners and advanced fitness freaks (like me), they have articles for the pregnant fairy’s, articles on health and training, success stories, and fat loss articles.

Ladies take advantage! Best magazine to buy, so educational and articles are always a pleasure to read. Awesome fitness clothes advertised along with nutritional supplements from leading brands.

Fitness magazine is available in your leading stores, like CNA and Dis-Chem or even better get a subscription and have it delivered to you, even better get a Digital Copy.

Fitness Magazine is well priced and well worth it! SO what you waiting for ladies, go grab one and get fit!
