Clothing for a Cause

Nancy G. Brinker made a promise to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever, and it was in 1982 that she fulfilled this promise with the formation of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. 2007 marks the 25th anniversary of the foundation, and to celebrate they’ve implemented several new initiatives, including a new look and logo.

As part of the new initiative, and in an attempt to bring awareness to younger women, the foundation is selling a new tshirt– If you’re going to stare at my breasts you could at least donate a dollar to save them.– with all proceeds going to the foundation. Another popular item is are the Susan G. Komen for a Cure promise rings. The rings are sold as a pair to symbolize how the search for a cure links all women. Actor Hugh Laurie was seen sporting one of these at this year’s Golden Globes. Breast Cancer is a disease that affects all women, and the search for a cure is a cause close to my heart, so it’s nice to know that by doing something as simple as buying a $5 ring, we’re helping the cause.

I wasn’t a fan of this last cycle of America’s Next Top Model, but the newest cycle, cycle 8 begins on February 28. Here are a few sneak peeks of the new girls. Based on these photos I can’t spot anyone who seems to be a frontrunner, but you never know until after the infamous ‘makeovers.’

Inspired Style…Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera hasn’t stopped wearing red lipstick since her Back to Basics reinvention. But I must admit that it is a look that works for her. This casual look she’s sporting would be great for a casual night on the town.

Week’s Most Stylish Batch

I recently started doing Batch of the Month posts, but these are regular women who are doing extraordinary things. So I thought I’d start doing Week’s Most Stylish Batch, focusing on the celeb who I feel was the week’s best dressed. It’ll be a simple post, a picture, a who, a when, and a where. To start things off I’ve chosen Miss Beyonce Knowles.

Posh Says NO! to Zeros

Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham has announced that she plans to ban size zero models from promoting her new denim label. This coming from a woman who cannot be larger than a size zero herself. Apparently Mrs. Beckham wants to give out a positive message that you don’t have to be ultra thin to look good. Well, duh. But it’s still very commendable of her. According to a source close to Victoria, “Victoria doesn’t want to be accused of giving young girls a complex about their image and putting pressure on them to be as skinny as her.”

Covergirls…Kelis in Trace

By now I’m sure you guys know that I’m a Kelis fan. And although she doesn’t look horrible with her blond hair, I much preferred her short ‘do when it was darker. Here, Kelis graces the cover of Trace Magazine, obviously before she decided to go over to the ‘light’ side. As usual, she looks great. You can check out UltimateKelis.com to check out scans of the accompanying article.

Go Red for Women

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Many people don’t realize that heart disease is the number one killer of both women and men. But even more people don’t realize that heart disease is largely preventable. So in order to spread awareness about heart disease, Friday February 2nd, is the national Go Red for Women Day. You can show your support for women and the fight against heart disease by wearing red– a red bag, a red blouse, or even put on red lipstick.

What?Huh?…Sienna Miller

Personally, I’m not a big fan of Sienna Miller’s acting abilities. But that hasn’t kept me from appreciating some of her style choices, i.e. see below. However, I don’t know what she was thinking when she put this ensemble together. Granny panties over support stockings? What’s really going on here?

Although we’re in the dead of winter now, spring will be here before you know it. And this cute look from actress Sienna Miller would be the perfect way to welcome the warmer weather. One wouldn’t associate black with spring, but this babydoll dress paired with gladiator sandals screams ‘warm weather.’

Cosa Nostra by Jeffrey Sebelia

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

When last season’s Project Runway began, I don’t think there were many people who thought that resident heel, Jeffrey Sebelia would become the winner. But in the end it was Sebelia’s feminine yet dramatic pieces that the Runway judges loved. I’m a fan of Project Runway, and of course I was rooting for Michael, but I must admit that Jeffrey’s final designs were clearly the best. His slinky tops, sharp jackets, and stovepipe jeans were extremely feminine considering they were designed by someone whose personal style was so ‘punk.’ And according to a recent article in Elle Magazine, that’s just the way that Jeffrey wanted it. “Before the show, I told my girlfriend, ‘I want people to hate me, and then I want to make stuff that will sway their opinion of me,’” says Sebelia in Elle. Jeffrey claims that he planned his every move on Runway, before he got on the show. He intended for his pieces to begin dark and moody, and eventually become colorful and structured. “I decided to go dark and unconstructed with the first challenge, and then, as we went along, use a little more color or make it more precious.” As for Jeffrey’s future, he plans to use his winnings from Runway ($100,000) to expand his already established clothing label, Cosa Nostra. He also plans to open a boutique in West Hollywood.
