Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Zelda.

Thank you! While I myself am naturally very pale, I have never really been bothered by it, or about it. I have had to shrug off the various, “You don’t look a shade darker!” comments after a week in Cuba, but it really didn’t bother me. The idea, however, that a woman needs to be tan to be attractive, drives me up the wall. Any woman, regardless of her color, is beautiful, and should not have to change herself to be thought of that way. I roll my eyes every summer when I come across the tanning article that is inevitably there, in every magazine, telling us how to “get that sun-kissed glow!”. I have never had the urge to look like an Oompa Loompa, lobster, or dehydrated fruit in my later years, and thus, have never used any sort of tanning product. We are what we are, and we should be allowed to embrace it, without society berating us with ridiculous stereotypes of beauty.

It looks like she’s wearing cheese graters on her feet…


Miley Cyrus
An outfit like this HAD to have had some story behind it. I figure she was on a yacht (that was docked, of course), and the captain turned out to be evil. He lit the ship on fire while Miley was getting ready (because she still has her makeup on), and as she was saving everyone, all of her clothes burned off. After she beat up the captain, she stole his coat (so she had something to wear), and trekked for 5 miles through the wilderness to get to the music awards (hence the hair). As for the shoes, my guess is she stole them from somebody.

Copper without a doubt. I could follow the metal-themed superhero trend and become a female variation of Iron Man. I would call myself Copper-Pants Woman and fight against the dark forces of Drop Crotch.
