imagestyra banks is back and the re-up is good.   the show which is on vh1 has the most diverse set of models in terms of race, size and age. one of the models has alopecia, which is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system attacks hair follicles. her strength and courage to face her hair loss is inspiring.  then there’s the 40plus year old mom who is rocking it like the gorgeous diva she is.  by showing us the many ways in which women are beautiful, ANTM feels better and fresher than ever.

 

imgresi’m also loving a new show on lifetime, making a model with yolanda hadid.  at first i felt this was just another thoughtless reality show.  yolanda (a former super model) helps aspiring teen girl models understand the industry. the twist is their moms are on the show with them.  i know what you are thinking.  sounds like drama! and drama there is…BUT what i like is that it showcases how the moms support of their daughters is key to the girls doing well.  if the moms talk to the girls in a positive way the girls do good. when they communicate with one another with love and support the shoots go better.   when the moms allow the girls to show their true selves, they radiate more in their photos.  it’s so telling how much the relationships between the moms and girls make all the difference in their success. it’s like that saying, ‘you are only as good, as the company you keep.’  

even though both shows may seem like clones of the same thing, they are different and really good.  definitely worth checking out.

i just read an article in slate magazine about an exhibit of photos by Ji Yeo.  the flicks show the not so glamorous life of young women recovering from plastic surgery.  

i know some teens are thinking of doing plastic surgery.  

you don’t like your nose…your arms seem to flabby…if you could only get higher cheekbones?  

it seems like it would be a dream come true.  but the question is, what lengths would you go to get it?  

is is worth the pain?  

wouldn’t it be cooler to learn to be proud of those features and rock them “flaws” like a boss?
