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

The comment about the British is true. Tanning here is a status thing amongst some people. I’m naturally pale and am not keen on hot weather so I never really tan. My friends at school however were mainly of the opinion that pale equalled not pretty.

Just as i don’t understand how fashion can deem ‘ethnic bodies’ (whatever that means) “in” one minute and “out” the next, I don’t understand how pale skin can be deemed ugly. It’s my skin. I can’t get rid of it until it becomes acceptable for fashion, nor do I want to rigorously apply layers of tinted moisturising lotion to maintain an orange aura for other people’s approval. It’s a pretty screwed up way of thinking.

The Cleavage Games: Jennifer Lawrence & Irina Shayk in low-cut dresses
I agree, it’s like a cheap prom dress when it’s cut that low. But a higher neckline, and it would look great. A shame.


Elizabeth Banks in orange Versace at The Hunger Games premiere
I think she looks lovely. Orange wouldn’t be most people’s first choice but I think she pulls it off well.


Busted: Dania Ramirez’s revealing black dress
It’s a nice dress, but it clearly isn’t staying up properly. I’d have trouble focusing on anything but making sure I wasn’t exposing myself if I was wearing it. I’d rather wear something less revealing and not have the worry of the next day’s possible embarrassing pictures.


Karl Lagerfeld thinks Adele is too fat, world outraged
Why did he even feel the need to say it about her? What relevance does it have to anything?


Cleavage: How Much is Too Much?
No worries, I think you make good points. It wasn’t the most flattering cut for her.

And your english is great! I’m a student of french so I completely understand how difficult it is trying to write coherently in another language.
