Actress speaks out about the pressures of being thin in Bollywood

” Today most of the girls are stick thin, and that is a tragedy. That has been life miserable for women like me,” says actress Raveena Tandon.

 

The pressure to be thin isn’t just in Hollywood. Apparently, Bollywood diva’s also face the same criticism and scrutiny if they aren’t a size zero. Raveena Tandon along with Aishwariya Rai, and many others have been targeted by the media concerning their weight.

So sad–but we’re not surprised. As if Bollywood didn’t have other issues to conquer. Take skin lightening for an example. Even today, if your not a certain skin tone, you will not be considered beautiful.

Sickening I know….

Noone wants to lend Kim clothes

Poor Kimmy gets rejected by top designers. Being one of the most “powerful women” on tv right now, Kim is still having a hard time getting some of the top designers to give her free clothes. Stylist Nicola Formichetti, whos dressed top celebs such as Lady Gaga, was suppose to get Kim ready for her Elle Magazine shoot, but explained “it’s a challenge dressing Kim” “People wouldn’t lend me the clothes, but that’s fashion snobbery.”

So what could it be? Is Kim getting too big to wear these top designer clothes (she IS pregnant) or are people starting to see her for what she really is? Err…we will stay mum on this one. Besides, she can just buy the clothes if she wanted to.

LA STYLE Fashion Week 2012

LA Style fashion week was held at the Vibiana, in downtown Los Angeles from October 15 through out the 19th. This 5 day event provides both, fashion designers, and emerging fashion designers the opportunity to showcase their creations to the world. My talented photographer and I headed out there to get photos, and possible interviews with designers and models, and this is what we got.

This event can definitely get overwhelming; there’s so much to take in all at once! My photographer, Elizabeth Woods, and I headed out to Vibiana around 7 pm and were stunned to see so many interesting people under one roof. Not only was the hall full of beautiful people from Los Angeles, it had people from all over the country. The event was full of Designers, Models and Press.  We scoped out the venue and took amazing shots of both the runway and the alluring enviorment surrounding us. The designers of the night were Louis Verdad and Dar Sara.  I was lucky enough to get a very brief interview in with Dar Sara. Originally from the Phillipines but also spending many years in Dubai, this designer is taking the world by storm by displaying his life story through his designs.

What inspires you to create?

What inspires me is Hollywood. The Stars inspire me; the glitz, the glamour and everything Hollywood.

Watching your show reminded me of a theatrical show; it had a dramatic powerful beginning and  it ended on calming, light note; such as a movie with a happy ending.  Why did you choose to display your work the way you did?

I chose to display my designs the way I did because it’s the story of my life. The struggles I first faced in the beginning and how I over came those struggles. I like to make sure that comes across in my work because it is who I am.

One last question before I let you go. Where is your line available?

It is available in the US and all over the world. You can check it out online www.Darsara.com.

It was an amazing show and I highly recommend everyone to check out the Designers. Louis Verdad was simple, classy and sexy while Dar Sara displayed fantasy, unrestrained innovative opulence. Both designers showcased impeccable artistry and creative genius.

LA Style Fashion Week – DAY 2

LAFWcover_copy

Another day in the world of fashion here in downtown, Los Angeles. We headed out to Vibiana to check out the Madison Park Collective runway show. The day started off with collections by Paul Gibson and Jane Booke. The evening ended with ‘Local Social’ and ‘Madison Park.’ My talented photographer Elizabeth and I arrived just in time for the Madison Park collective.

It was a scene out of a magazine. The event-hall was decked out as always, and it flashed the designers logo on the screen. The lighting felt perfect and the ambiance was set for a night to remember. That being said, let me tell you about the [eye candy] that was in store for us. It’s a Fashion show, so of course there are going to be beautiful men everywhere — this was better than I could ever have expected.

  The show started with the guys walking out wearing classic attire; signature Madison Park. Before you know it- the guys started dancing a little number to Michael Jackson’s “Beat it.” (That’s when everyone’s cameras came up.) This has got to be one of my top favorite shows so far this week.  The show was a success and the clothes were very tasteful. However, the real peak of the show was the flash-dance ending.
