Liv Tyler Is Against ‘Photoshopping’

“I know what people look like, and I see what pictures look like before they’re airbrushed – my own and those of my friends – and every image is so manipulated. They’ll take a hair off your arm and get rid of a pore or freckle on your face.”

“Personally, I find imperfections and flaws charming and beautiful. I like it that all people don’t look the same.”

… says Liv.

Kelly Brook: ‘Finding clothes that suit my curvy shape has been a struggle’

FP_5092118_Brook_Kelly_FP_EXCL_0527102 - Kelly Brook: 'Finding clothes that suit my curvy shape has been a struggle'

Even though some wouldn’t really call Kelly’s figure a challenging one (to dress), the glamour model / actress explains that:

Finding clothes that suit my curvy shape has been a struggle in the past. When I was younger, I was a trend follower without really thinking if it suited my body shape.

Now, rather than following what other people are doing, I stick to accentuating my waist, as it balances out my hips and b~~~~.

When I started getting into modelling as a teenager, I wasn’t your typical gazelle with petite perky breasts or an androgynous waif.

I was 5ft 6in with 36in hips, a 25in waist and large b~~~~, so I really struggled to begin with – I was the wrong girl, wrong time.

But then I looked for work in areas of the media that would accept me, such as pop videos.

Photoshop Strikes Again: Jessica Simpson in Lucky Magazine

Photoshop-Strikes-Again-Jessica-Simpson-in-Lucky-Magazine - Photoshop Strikes Again: Jessica Simpson in Lucky Magazine

If this was a “This Body Belongs to…” game, how many would have exclaimed: ‘Jessica Simpson!’?

Paradoxically, Jessica is distorted by the Photoshop machine, but she also happens to send a pro-body diversity message in the magazine:

Jessica Simpson has undergone a noteworthy personal style evolution, inspired, she says, by coming to terms with some serious body issues over the course of the last year. She stopped fighting her hourglass silhouette, for instance, after realizing that “we all obsess over looking like the perfect Barbie type, and that’s not always what’s beautiful. It’s about making peace with yourself.”

Kind request to the editors: Pick a side! Either go wild and do your airbrushing extravaganza OR promote beauty and body diversity – It’s not a ‘2 in 1 deal’.

Sara Rue Lost 50 Pounds!

sara-weight - Sara Rue Lost 50 Pounds!

And thanks to her major weight loss, she abandoned her size 14 figure and now fits into a size 6. Let’s find out the details from People Magazine:

If you see Sara Rue on the street, chances are she’ll be smiling. That’s because the actress has lost 50 pounds since signing on as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig last December. “I have such a better relationship with food than I’ve ever had in my life,” Rue, 31, tells PEOPLE. “I’ve learned how to control portions, I’ve learned how to eat healthfully.” Best of all, she is enjoying exercise for the first time in her life. Rue, who used to just walk the dogs around the block, now regularly logs 45-60 minutes of cardio 5-6 days a week on the treadmill and is in training for her first half marathon. But her eight-month journey was not without its fair share of obstacles. “I spent the first few months of this program wearing my pedometer and getting in my 10,000 steps every day,” Rue says. “When I started running I would run for one minute and walk for ten. Now I can run for two-and-a-half hours straight. That’s insane! I never would have thought six months ago that I would be able to run that much.” Nor did she think she’d be enjoying another activity-shopping. “Barely squeezing into a size 14 when she embarked upon her weight loss journey, the 5’8” Rue is now a lean “size 6.” Busy planning a Spring 2011 wedding with her fiancé, teacher Kevin Price, Rue recently popped into Vera Wang  in Beverly Hills to check out a 70 percent off sale. “I wandered to the back of the store where all the bride gowns were. The woman zipped it up and she had to clamp it in the back because it was too big,” Rue says, laughing. “It was just a great feeling.”

Lindsay Lohan Is the New Face (But Not the Body) for Marc Ecko

Lindsay-Lohan-Poses-for-Marc-Ecko1 - Lindsay Lohan Is the New Face (But Not the Body) for Marc Ecko

Lindsay Lohan is the star of  Marc Ecko’s new ad campaign for his new Cut & Sew line – but wait: where are her freckles and is that her waist? Answer: Not really – according to many newspapers and online magazines and somewhat confirmed by the designer, Lindsay’s head was actually attached to another model’s body (well, this has happened before).

Why would the designer hire an expensive Lindsay then? Marc Ecko explains:

“A muse has the ability to inspire the artist to create in ways they wouldn’t otherwise contemplate. For better, or worse, they make you feel something, emotionally. I cast Lindsay because people are fascinated with her – they can either feel good or bad things, but they are feeling some type of emotion. She’s a pop culture icon.”
