What the Hell Happened to Personal Style?
Where a 14-year-old Kate Moss put in her time on Portobello Road with Corinne Day, learning to thrift, self-style, and create her own ambling glamour, the young fashion plates of today have outsourced the development of their style to professionals. And those employed to keep the young and stylish considered that way don’t dare take any real risks, for fear of sartorial missteps, bad tabloid titles (and the online equivalent), or a mention on a worst-dressed list. [...] We are so inundated by these images from paparazzi, from media, from the stars themselves, that we cease to see any meaning behind any of it. Which would be fine (their funeral, as the saying goes), except it’s a very costly absence of meaning, both societally and economically.

Connie Fisher on Make-Up
evolutionary psychology explanation: in more patriarchal societies, women wear less make-up (middle east v western world) make-up is a signal of equality. why do women wear make-up? "women have to show sexiness (attractiveness) to signal fertility. [...] subconscious natural selection." // industry worker "a treat, feeling good that rather looking good." // art, and can look like a different person // study showed that people prefer no-make-up make-up look. // advertising and marketing is positioning and spin it that it is seen in a feminist way along the way of 'you made the decision, you made yourself look better, ...' rarely do we judge men by their look ... ie rob ford toronto mayor, or chris christie. // Selfie has become a culture/pop culture phenomenon. bare face selfie is seen now as courageous! #trend - bare face is so alien to our make-up (look your best) norm/cultural norm! // putting on make-up and nice outfit (shopping, treat) can become coping mechanism against stress.

Jenny Beavan’s Oscars outfit struck a blow for all women | Laura Bates | Opinion | The Guardian
This was not the first stand taken against the reduction of women in the industry to their clothes and jewellery. The past few years have seen Elisabeth Moss give the middle finger to the “mani-cam” at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett demand: “Do you do that to the guys?” as a camera panned up and down her body on the red carpet, and a series of women from Reese Witherspoon to Amy Poehler demand that reporters ask them more than questions about their frocks. We’ve also seen the actress and singer Zendaya speak out about racist responses to her dreadlocks at the Oscars, and Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy design her own dresses after designers refused to dress her, proving that Hollywood’s incredibly narrow definition of beauty is discriminatory on the basis of size and race. [...] find themselves pitted against each other in excruciating “best dressed” and “worst dressed” lists, the awards season will continue to provide a high-profile, glossy microcosm of wider prejudice.

Plus size models are unhealthy, says Edwina Currie - BBC News
Former MP Edwina Currie has said size 14 model Ashley Graham looks "unhealthy" and that the fashion industry is encouraging people to become obese. Speaking on BBC Breakfast she said encouraging obesity was just as dangerous as encouraging people to be size zero. She was reacting to a newspaper article written by journalist Katie Glass, who also appeared on the programme.

Will easyFoodstore be the next easyJet – or the next easyCruise? | Business | The Guardian
No Expensie Brands. Everything canned or else. No fresh produce. // Stelios Haji-Ioannou opens easyFoodstore with 25p offer. EasyJet founder takes on supermarkets with discount grocery store in north-west London // There can’t be many customers in this shop – or anywhere – who remember easyCinema, easy4Men, easyMoney, easyInternetCafe, easyMusic or easyCruise. But despite some of the nags that flopped at the first hurdle, the brand has endured, thanks largely to easyJet. The airline Haji-Ioannou founded – and in which he still has a 35% stake – paid him £77m in dividends last year and also provided the lion’s share of the £13.2m turnover easyGroup made by licensing use of its brand.

A Point of View: Does cosmetic surgery really make people feel better about their bodies? - BBC News
In 2002-3, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons carried out 10,700 procedures. Ten years later, they carried out 50,000 procedures of which the most common was breast augmentation. [...] Why are people resorting to cosmetic surgery? There is increasing pressure to look young and beautiful, especially for women, who are still more likely to be judged on appearances, particularly in the workplace. The media is full of makeover programmes glamorising cosmetic surgery and celebrities who look ever more perky. Subliminally and not so subliminally, our culture is changing how humans feel they should look. People believe they will be happier and more successful if they conform more closely to these cultural norms. [...] Pornography is now ubiquitous and must be a big driver of people's dissatisfaction with their bodies. Let me give you an example. Ironically, while the UK has banned female genital mutilation, it is simultaneously having a booming trade in labiaplasty.

Taylor Swift an 'obnoxious Nazi Barbie', writes Camille Paglia | Music | The Guardian
Feminist writer says singer – with her ‘girl squad’ – perpetuates elitism and reminds her of ‘fascist blondes’ of her youth. Camille Paglia has written a scathing critique of Taylor Swift, referring to the singer as an “obnoxious Nazi Barbie” whose “twinkly persona is such a scary flashback to the fascist blondes who ruled the social scene during my youth”. Paglia, known for seminal feminist works such as Sexual Personae, criticised the singer for perpetuating elitism and undermining female empowerment by surrounding herself with a group of girls who were simply “performance props”. Swift is known as the ringleader of a sisterhood of actors, models and singers, such as Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, who Swift often refers to as her “girl squad”. Many joined the singer on stage during her tour for her latest album, 1989. Paglia, 68, condemned this as “exhibitionist overkill” by the singer.

From social media to the catwalk, is fantasy beauty failing young women? | Life and style | The Guardian
The world of vloggers and YouTubers has created a perverse, homogenised “beauty” with no diversity or reality. Jane Cunningham, journalist [...] The concept of appearance as a commodity to be valued has filtered from Hollywood to family homes across the UK. A 2013 attitudes survey by the Guide Association finding that 87% of girls aged 11-21 believe women are judged more on their appearance than their ability. The dissatisfaction resulting from the oft-perpetuated narrow vision of a beauty ideal can lead to low self-esteem – and worse. Jane Cunningham, the journalist behind Britishbeautyblogger.com, says young girls come to her in tears, feeling hopeless and helpless, unable to reconcile their own appearance with what they believe to be beautiful.

Greenpeace: Deutsche werfen selbst gut erhaltene Kleidung in den Müll - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Um bei Modetrends mithalten zu können, werfen viele Deutsche laut einer Greenpeace-Umfrage auch gut erhaltene Klamotten einfach weg. Etwa 40 Prozent der Sachen im Kleiderschrank werden fast nie getragen. [...] Denn laut einer Umfrage der Umweltschutzorganisation Greenpeace betrachten viele Deutsche Kleidung als Wegwerfware. Demnach hängen 5,2 Milliarden Kleidungsstücke in deutschen Schränken. Davon würden 40 Prozent sehr selten oder nie getragen, teilte Greenpeace mit. Jeder Achte trage seine Schuhe weniger als ein Jahr lang. Kaum jemand lasse Kleidung ausbessern. Für die Analyse wurden im September mehr als tausend Menschen zwischen 16 und 69 Jahren befragt. Mode sei zum Wegwerfartikel wie Einweggeschirr verkommen, fasste Greenpeace-Expertin Kirsten Brodde die Ergebnisse zusammen. Für wichtig werde gehalten, den schnell wechselnden Trends zu folgen.

But she's now beaten the disease, and wants to encourage other women to realise that "your worth does not depend on your weight". She's collected 40,000 followers on Instagram by posting images of her new, healthier, fuller figure, complete with stomach rolls and cellulite. Megan hopes that her @bodyposipanda account will help combat the "Fitspiration" craze on social media which, based on her own experience, she says promotes images of unnaturally thin bodies that are both unrealistic and dangerous.

fat shaming (does not help, ultimately) is not enlightenment (public education and personal self-education, reading up how you harm yourself and people from high up & ur parents have poisoned you since your inception (epigenetics, pollution)), medical intervention, helping someone when you were in their shoes and found help and or helped yourself. Only YOU YOURSELF can be of true interest about YOUR health, because it is your life, your health, your well being, happiness, your disposable income not to spend on medical care. Not food multinational conglomerates owned by a handful shareholders! Theyre not interested in ur health or the nations exploding health care spending. They are interested in maintaining the status quo. Dividends. Profits. Less regulation & oversight. Rising share price. Share buybacks. As child ur indoctrinated, by those people. Because they HOLD the power. There is no broccoli lobby. How abt frame lobby involvement in food pyramid as nanny state by food giants!?

E-Commerce is a Bear — Medium
Only two start-ups have properly challenged Amazon over the past decade: Zappos and Diapers. [...] Having spent time with Tony Hsieh and Alfred Lin, the leadership duo who built Zappos, and Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara, the founders of Diapers, I can tell you: these are intense competitors who recognized the best outcome was to join forces with the industry leader. So if Amazon is the low cost winner of selling brands online, if they are acquiring their best competitors, and if their everyday low prices are available to the entire country via a mechanical turk algorithm which is guaranteed to beat you, how do you compete? [...] [ eBay pure p2p marketplace ] [...] This next generation of e-commerce companies is as much about what you exclude as what you include. // &! only up for grabs (Amazon model) is in the developing world & emerging market - for entrepreneurs - & only possible double digit returns for investors. and the battle has already begun ... since like 05/09 China/India ...

Wandel der Trinkgewohnheiten - The European
Krankenhauseinweisungen wegen Alkoholvergiftung gehen kontinuierlich zurück, immer mehr Jugendliche trinken gar keinen Alkohol oder trinken bewusst maßvoll. „Komasaufen“ ist nicht mehr cool, stattdessen chillen die Kids heute mit angesagten Trendgetränken – ohne Alkohol. Eine Lebenseinstellung, auch gegen das Gewohnte. Jugendliche wollen sich abgrenzen, wollen anders sein als ihre Eltern und Großeltern. Die heutige Jugend schafft das bravourös. Sie entwickelt sich immer mehr zu guten Vorbildern. [...] Das Umdenken beginnt im Kopf! Und die Umsetzung erfolgt in der Gesellschaft. Alkoholfrei zu Trinken ist inzwischen keine „Notlösung“ mehr sondern modern. Diesen Trend hat die Industrie erkannt und agiert geschickt. Endlich setzen die deutschen Brauer auf das richtige Pferd: alkoholfreies Bier für junge Erwachsene.

American Apparel: at first arty and subversive, then it got creepy | Business | The Guardian
The US retailer broke new ground when it first hit the British high street, but its edginess and internet porn aesthetic ended up tarnishing its image [...] So many of the attributes that were once unique to American Apparel – unisex clothes, ethical production, athletics-influenced designs and brilliant basics – remain important trends in fashion today. But now that everybody else is offering these too, all that differentiates American Apparel is its tarnished reputation. // what would Seth Godin recommend? Wall Street demands more than niche. Brand w 1000 True Fans, special identity, Tribe ... // sex sells is the easiest thing you can do, and Ryan Holiday (author) was behind it with AA. ... // It got the Hype cycle. it grew with it. now it has to live with the ramifications that it painted itself into that corner.

Doctors call for new tax on sugary food and drinks - BBC News
Doctors have called for the introduction of a tax on sugary food and drinks to tackle what they describe as an "obesity epidemic". The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh warned that being overweight may now be considered "the norm". It claimed a tax would help fund the "spiralling" healthcare costs associated with the problem. The British Soft Drinks Association (BSDA) insisted that the case is "not compelling". It cited research which suggested a 20% tax would save just four calories per day. Liverpool University chair of clinical epidemiology, Simon Capewell, is due to speak at a conference on the issue in Edinburgh later, entitled: "Obesity: A 21st Century Epidemic". [ ... rootless tax evaders crony capitalists have stake and no shared economic long-term interest ... capitalism has no selfl-imiter ...]

How Victoria's Secret Made Lingerie Mainstream - Newsweek
“The great thing that Wexner did was recognize the huge white space in the market that was unspoken for, and he brought in innovation,” says Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultancy in New Canaan, Conn. “He made sexy mainstream. That was his genius.” But Wexner, still a reserved Midwesterner who has been the chairman and CEO of the company—now known as Limited Brands and including brands such as Bath and Body Works, Pink, La Senza, and Henri Bendel—for more than 45 years, doesn’t see anything “genius” about it. “I didn’t invent anything. I didn’t invent the bra or stores or the name,” he says. “I just see things differently.” Still, when it comes to how women think about the most pragmatic items they wear, that’s made all the difference.
