Cosmedicine's Protest Beauty B.S. Contest

With so many beauty products out there promising us total transformation and instant gratification, it’s easy to get frustrated when the results barely deliver, as so often happens. Beauty companies are constantly showing us before and after photographs that require either a leap of faith, or a miracle.

Are you more than a little insulted by the hype? Let’s just say it – IT’S ALL B.S.!

Cosmedicine has sponsored a video contest for spoofs, satires and parodies of misleading and hard to believe beauty advertisements and it is about to open up to submissions!

The winner gets a $5,000 cash prize! The top ten finalists get a year’s supply of Cosmedicine products(we promise it will give you beautiful, healthy skin). All eligible entries get a free gift.

Mark your calendar, because the contest begins August 4th and ends September 21st. For information on how to enter, click here.

Enough is enough! It’s time to put those sneaky beauty ads to shame and score a few points for women of intelligence!

Owner of American Apparel Judges Sales People By Their Looks

I heard this story early this morning and I wasn't ready to believe it. I though it was a joke, like April's Fools in July or something. I checked Gawker and it turns out to be true. Before you read on and know all about what Dov Charney, owner of American Apparel, wants to do, please sit down and prepare to laugh to tears. The "gentleman" on your right is Mr. Charney. "Dov usually gets on the conference calls and talks to people, but one week, he went on a huge tirade and made stores that weren't doing well send in group photos. Why, you ask? He made store managers across the country take group photos of their employees so that he could personally judge people based on looks. He is tightening the AA 'aesthetic. Meaning anyone that Dov deems not good-looking enough to work there, is set to receive a pink slip. This is blatant discrimination based on looks. Dov personally judged each person in group photos that were sent in, and if you weren't to his liking, then boy... watch out. The comments that he made ranged from childish to insulting. Managers that don't comply with these new standards are afraid of losing their jobs. Employees who aren't up to Dov's "look" and whose work ethic is "just ok" are being targeted and scrutinized and the minute they make small mistakes, they are being fired. But it's only because Dov wants to weed out the "ugly people." It's ironic that he would rather have gorgeous slackers who don't move the product [or lift a finger] working there than normal looking people who are really aren't that bad looking, but are A+ sellers and great at customer service."

We tried to reach Dov, but as of yet no contact. To me, the only way to deal with this, is by making more fun out of this man than he already did of himself. If you have his number, please text or call him and give him our link. We have some cool beauty solutions that he could use. If I worked for this man, I'd quit (if he didn't fire me first, that is). Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so all there is left to do is to figure out which will his criteria be. Judging by his looks...

Beauty Solutions: How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Facial Hair

House of Dereon's 2009 Fall Campaign

Beyonce/ Sasha Fierce released the House of Dereon's Fall 2009 Campaign video shoot. Interestingly enough you'll find that this collection have influences from both Beyonce and her alter ego Sasha Fierce. While Beyonce stays true to Mommy Knowles' hold on long couture dresses, Sasha Fierce rebels with an urban edge.

The Sasha Fierce line isn't impressive at all. Certainly one should expect the urban and youthful feel; however, there was nothing nouveau about it. I expected more - something different: edgy rock-inspired pieces. There are some pieces I'd wear but a few seem dated - a blast from the past 90's Hip-Hop style. Maybe Kimora Lee Simmons is at the Baby Phat Headquarters secretly thinking been there - done that!

The Fall 2009 House of Dereon's couture dresses are looking far more superior than the ones that preceded them. It seems that the couture portion of the collection was inspired by the fashion and styles of the roaring 20s. The dresses are extremely feminine - flattering a woman's every curve, vivid, chic and elegant. They also have a Parisan flare to them. Doesn't Beyonce look great graceful in the green satin dress?
