A quick post telling you how much fun I had yesterday styling a model. It was the first time I styled a model.
I wanted the look to be chilled out and chic at the same time. I styled a very beautiful model in distressed jeggings (which I absolutely adore, myself), turquoise top and a black waistcoat, which I really wanted. To accessorize it even further I gave her my studded watch and a brown lace handbag. 
I, on the other hand wore my black tunic and Coach sneakers.


Now now, the little thing you gotta do is- "Like" this look (on my/W's page) and help me win win. C'mon it is just a like. :O (HERE) &/or (HERE) <__< Links to the pictures on FACEBOOK.

 I'll write a post giving you all the little deets later. Please do like this picture.

Designer Ghassan Yazbeck's Cocktail Preview Event

(All pictures belong to Dagmara)

So a couple of few weeks ago I got to attend an emerging designer's collection preview event, and it was super fun considering I've seen first hand how this designer has emerged within the industry within such a short period of time by writing various articles about him and his sudden uprise during fashion week, which included his first show and editorial photoshoot. It was nice to see people personally come out and admire his beautiful collection. It was also fun because I tried on some of his pieces, ha. My outfit here consists of a shirt I bought at a boutique in my neighborhood, my mother's old skirt, and a pair of shoes I got from my trip to England last summer.

Photoshop: Is it's use creating an unrealistic standard of beauty in our society?

I stumbled across this video a few weeks ago. I was shocked at the way even a small speck on one's face could vanish in seconds.Technology has taken another big turn giving you this as a product. Now the question is- is it good or bad?

They wake up and look just like you and I. Pictures clicked and videos made are edited making them look extraordinarily good. They just have big bucks to hire professionals who can make them look very different and well good. They are bound to get more hair and skin problems than an average woman. This is because of the amount of chemicals that are used on their skin and their hair.  

(Kim Kardashian)
(Pamela Anderson)
An estimated 60 percent of all people between the ages 10 and 35 have skin outbreaks at some point. So do you think professional pictures and videos of celebrities and models show their real self? It is sickening how photoshop which is perhaps a boon for many but for the majority it is doing nothing but creating unrealistic standards of beauty which is extremely saddening.
Here is one rough estimate- 97% of media is run by men, for some odd reason. These unrealistic standards of beauty are majorly created by men and honestly, I could take this debate to another tangent but I will certainly leave it for some other day.

(a model)
We are constantly bombarded with unrealistic standards of beauty. Shouldn't the entertainment industry embrace and encourage natural beauty? If someone looks a certain way, then why not show the world the REALITY instead of keeping them restricted to mirrors?
The beauty standards are raised to such heights that it creates a sense of insecurity among those who are unaware of the fact that these "beautiful" women are actually just a creation of those people who expect the beauty standards to be in fact very, very high. What do YOU think?

UPDATE: Prabal Gurung's Spring'12 Campaign Video

Have you guys checked out Prabal Gurung's Spring 2012 Campaign video? I saw it. The 0:38 seconds of my life went in seeing something INSANELY TRIPPY. The video has a psychadellic touch to it- the music, the contrast, the way all of it is put together. It really blew my mind. The 23 year old designer has done a marvelous job with the video. He never fails to surprise us. You can check it out on my FACEBOOK PAGE.
