BACK-FRONT STAGE


.

... Don't you think that all these fashion models are almost like the living-breathing modern 'barbie dolls'? ...especially for all those fabulous fashion designers... Dressing them up, putting on the perfect accessories all that gorgeous adornments... Sometimes we do forget that they are real people just like you and me(only 2' taller, hee!)... with our own demons, fear and insecurities... (not according to Barbie tough...she is always in her own perrr...fect super fan'plastic la-la land...hee!) The stage, the cameras all the glitz and glamour, fabulous clothes and make-up are merely just part of this wonderful world of fashion which I trully love and enjoy... But at the same token, let us not forget that they are creating and selling a fantasy...a 'dream' so to speak. LENORENEVERMORE is constantly reminded that "helooo...wake up to the real world!", and not so called 'Barbie world'... heehee! But you know what, why not create our own fantastic world...filled with our own love and joy... continue to dream and also to build our own dreams... Shall we... I simply love the Dove Soap advertisement campaign lately...what a great positive message, yes?!

love your post! it helped me to remind myself that I'm lovely. Lovely as I am; I don't have to be a Barbie!!!
Your blog is so great, keep up writing.
At the weekend I'm going to dress up though (because it's my cousin's wedding), but I hope that I won't be a Barbie, but just me in a beautiful dress and lovely shoes.
love Franziska

I like this post! We often forget that the people we idolize are well...people.

And the Dove Campaign is great. Absolutely lovely to seem some realistic women on tv.

Thank you so much for the comment! It looks like your blog has taken off quite nicely.

I suppose they are a little like Barbie dolls in the way they are constantly dressed up, however I am glad to say most of them don't look like your standard blonde bombshell Barbie doll. I really love the models at Supreme Management, because they especially look to a unique kind of beauty in their models, which I like to see! :)
