I'm ranting against the need of many women to focus on parts of their bodies. I'm speaking about women who are into the celeb thing. I know that Fashion has been pulled several different ways in the last few years. On the one hand, there are the designers showing see-thru dresses, blouses, etc. Without underwear. And when I see that, I think to myself "who would wear that and where?". I don't see much of the totally see-thru on the red carpet. So there is one question I don't have an answer for. I do see dresses cut to there.......
Despite not being a K fan, I do think Kim is pretty. But then the focus goes to the sexual nature of the girl-big butt, boobs hanging out, sex tape. Is this what it takes to become a celeb. And of course she isn't the only one doing this. Many of the girls in the media seem to think they need to use their bodies to get ahead. One fairly new actress is so into posing in a sexual way that you can see her on the red carpet doing it.
And then we have Toddlers dressing like sluts. And we have models(in France) dressing like sluts despite the fact that they are children.
When I needed a lift, I used to go to the celeb mags and the fashion mags. Who wore it better? I have begun to see this question as a great way to feel bad about myself. Articles like the Jen/Ang fight, which probably never even happened and if it did was over many years ago, still make the front pages of the magazines and sometimes even the news shows. I read on MSN about a model with a 20 inch waist who I think looks awful. Wonder how long it will take a few girls to die trying to look like her.
Now when I need a lift I try to look for true beauty. The pics of our world I included give me much more to look forward to in my life than the celeb mags. Don't get me wrong, I can be as interested and bitchy as the next person. I am just working on separating myself from the need to think those things are in any way about me. I grew up loving the idea of being an individual. Fashion was interesting but whenever I tried to fit into a group by dressing like them I realized there was much more to the fitting in than how I was dressed. And after I realized that it was OK to be myself, I fell into the comparison trap again. I am simply not good at carving out a persona for myself. Looking at the two top pics gives me a clue as to why. I, personally, like the thinner butt. Some people like the bigger butt. I don't understand. So I run quickly to the other sorts of input and try not to worry about it.
