Comment on “All Women Should Be Size 14”, says the Daily Mail. Say what? by Steph.
Agree completely. I’m 5’9 and a size 12-14 depending on the shop, due to bum and boobs. My best friend is the same height and is a size 6-8 because she has a very slender and athletic frame. She’s not going to turn into Christina Hendricks if she eats more, any more than I’m going to turn into Keira Knightley if I slim down! You’re pretty much stuck with the shape you’re got.
Telling people they ought to be size 14 is no more helpful than telling them they ought to be size 0. Either option ignores the fact that women come in all shapes and sizes. Health and happiness trump label sizes any day.

Celebrity Style on Trial: Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny is part of the Agnes Deyn and Alexa Chung group of women who are constantly touted as style icons and leave me completely baffled. I could probably count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I’ve seen Chloe Sevigny in an outfit I actually liked.

As far as I know, that’s her boyfriend, Count Louis-Marie de Castelbajac – how perfect is it that Dita is dating French aristocracy? 😀

I really like them. They can be frumpy or unflattering but I think if you pick the right styles and colours, they can look great.
