What’s Hot: All White Trend

Summer is just around the corner (if you’re in the Southern hemisphere) and everyone is excitedly packing away their winter wardrobes and bringing out their summer gear to play. We’re pretty over the gloomy days, cold winds and wet weather. Bring on summer!

One of the hottest trend this summer that is wearing all white head to toe. Some color advocate fashionistas may believe all white outfits are rather conservative and plain, wearing white is brave. Contrary to belief, wearing all white will make you stand out. Amongst the sea of blacks, monochromes, prints and colors, the all white outfit is simple a block of chic and sophistication. The all white look is also fabulous to wear all season round and as trends come and goes, white will remain effortlessly sophisticated, sassy and ultra polished.

All Over White: HOT

White also accentuates your curves and flaws more evidently, so it’s not a pick for those with uncertainties about unfavored body parts. Further, food and drink sources are the enemies for the day.

Fashion Blogger’s Hot Fav: All White Style

Is the white all over outfit worth it? Most definately!

Why? Because you’ll be a memorable and sophisticated memory to those who may see you in the street and those you know. Fearless fashionista status….priceless.

Celebs Are Loving All White

While wearing all white is pretty fail-proof there are certain ways in which you can style wearing all white to looking ultra chic and refreshing. Here are five top tips for nailing the all white look.

1. White + lace

The combination of white and lace merely speaks timeless feminine and sophistication style. Lace channels that ladylike sexiness like no other fabric whilst making a chic statement. Lace comes in many varieties of sheerness so experiment up with the lace transparencies.

So chic…white lace

2. White + transparency

You’re probably not going to go all out sheer like that on the catwalk but do embrace the sheer side of all white transparency for the season. While this look is runway worthy, it isn’t practical for or is a pick for everyday outfit pick. It would be a sensible choice to opt for oueces that show just the right amount of transparency that you are comfortable with. Accessorize with minimalist silver jewellery and accessories to keep the look chic and flawless.

3. White + skin

Show some skin to break up the all white and add the extra appeal of feminine sexiness. See the celebs below totally rocking the all white look trend. Hot as anything!

The Photoshop Diet: What’s Real And What’s Not

We never realized being a supermodel with a flawless figure is so hard!

Doutzen Kroes spills the beans on how she feels guilty for her own perfect figure makes girls feel uncomfortable and self conscious about their own bodies. Hrmm…what a tough life.

Doutzen-Kroes-model-victoria-secret-loreal

The hard life. Doutzen Kroes

She tells in an interview with Page Six “Sometimes it makes me feel guilty that I am now in this profession that makes certain girls insecure. I wake up sometimes like, this is not what I look like in the magazine. Who is this visitor in the bathroom?”

doutzen-kroes-model-lingerie-victoria-secret

It’s hard looking this hot all the time. Really.

It’s no secret that models and celebrities in showbiz are under a lot of pressure to look nothing less of perfect but when they fall short of that expectation and standard, there’s the good old airbrushing tactic. While we know the fashion and entertainment industry portrays women to be of a certain nature and while we realize some of these expectations and body images are unrealistic and exaggerated, we still feel pressurized to look a certain way.

Below we want to share with you the images portrayed and shown in the media are of pure alterations and enhancement by digital means. Yes, some are more models and celebrities with already pretty amazing bodies but even then, they still go through minor enhancements. It’s a sad thing that these media portrayals result in women to becoming insecure about their body images but it is about being a healthy weight for your body, comfortable in your own skin and realizing these images are doctored with the intention to make monetary gains.

Britney Spears

After Britney’s downward spiral with her public meltdown, it seems it’s been hard for her to get her body back on track. This photo here clearly highlights the photo-shop worked down on Britney’s body for a magazine cover.

Britney’s recent comeback sees her looking better than before but even videography filters and editing was not ruled out. The image below was a leaked image from Britney’s most recent single release, Work B!tch. Britney is sporting a much tighter and toned tummy in the touched up video edit and also slimmer thighs.

This picture here shows Britney Spears at one of her live concerts in a midriff bearing top. It’s a far cry from the abs she has for magazine shoots, album covers and promo photo materials as below for Shape magazine.

Jessica Alba looks pretty darn good as she does but she’s not exempt from having her waist tweeked to a smaller waist size and also slimmer thighs.

Mariah Carey is photo-shopped and airbrushed  for the perfect hourglass, feminine sexy shape. Perfect curves given by digital enhancements.

No chest? No worries! Photoshop will give you a natural and any size breasts you desire. Kate Hudson seen here on the left in her natural form with a small A cup chest and on the right is a retouched image of her breasts to a large cup size for the promo photo of her movie “Fool’s Gold.”

victoria-beckham-photoshopped

Victoria Beckham

No butt? No problems! Photoshop will give you that full and perky butt that is lusted after. Victoria Beckham is particularly known for her behind yet she sported a very full and voluptuous butt in her perfume campaign with David Beckham. Ahh, the magic of enhancements for body parts to increase or decrease.

jennifer-aniston-bikini-body

Jennifer Aniston

While most of us would kill for Jen’s yoga body, this tummy isn’t quite good enough for the standards of magazines where it appears they have smoothed out the “extra” tummy bits.

jennifer-aniston-bikini

Jennifer Aniston

Yes, Jen does look pretty darn good and while she’s perfectly fine au naturel as seen by her sunbathing on the beaches and hotel pools, that bit of retouching is needed to make her body picture perfect.

jennifer-lopez-abs

Jennifer Lopez

Promo shot of Jennifer Lopez to promote her album. Tanned, bronzed, sexy and….tight abs.

jennifer-lopez

J.Lo

Yes, J.Lo does have a bangin’ hot body with all her curves and impressive set of abs. Bear in mind that many of the professional shots are specifically shot from certain angles to best capture the body and features of the model or celebrity. Lighting and makeup also play a big role as with the final editing touches to the photo which we are exposed to and at times seemingly, impossible to obtain. In this particular picture of J.Lo, the angle of the photo is very flattering to the abs. Leaned back position which flattens the tummy and shows great definition. Fret not….

jennifer-lopez-abs-performance

Jennifer Lopez Live

Ahhh…yes, there are days when those abs of Ms Lopez aren’t out to play. Compare this photo to those of the magazines and promotional shots, these abs pictured are a far cry from the flat, toned and fab abs on display.

jennifer-lopez-bikini-photos

Ms Lopez

Refreshing photo. This is the kind of body that you would most likely see on the beach. Not perfect but beautiful as an untouched and natural way.

At the end of all this, there is no real quick or easy way to maintain that bikini body without the dedication and commitment to a healthy lifestyle which is a combination of nutrition and exercise. If these photos are anything to go by, we’d call it a “photoshop diet” because well, the models and celebrities are in their best shape thanks to digital help. Other than that, they have body hang ups just like the rest of us mere women. Despite having the luxury of have personal chefs and trainers to get them in shape, sometimes it takes more than just external help to achieve the ultimate body goal, yourself.

Take care of your body and love it inside and out!

Love,

Blake Lively

While Blake loves fashion and can go on shopping sprees at the high end department stores without blinking an eye to the price tags for each garment, she doesn’t knock paying less if it needn’t be. An industry insider says; “With the Christian Louboutin sale, there’s not just a VIP day, but a celebrity day, there were pap shots of Blake Lively carrying bags and bags away. And this sample sale is the Shangri La of sample sales.”

Blake loves shopping…at less than full price

Lady Gaga

We all love half price merchandize! Who doesn’t? Lady Gaga sure does! She was snapped digging through half price garments in New York stores and she couldn’t understand the amusement in people questioning her about shopping for 50% off merchandise. She tweeted her response on Twitter, “Why do people look at me like I’m crazy when I use coupons at grocery or try bargaining at retail, IM FROM NEW YORK WHERE IS THE SALE RACK?” Go Gaga!
