Miss Representation

Couldn’t get enough beauty-in-culture reading this week?  Never fear, we curated some more!

  • A reminder of the risks of certain beauty habits being practiced both 1000’s of miles away and close to home


  • French beauty, Emmanuelle Beart, launches campaign against plastic surgery as a result of her own botched surgery


  • An interesting perspective on the craziness we go through for beauty.  The author doesn’t think appreciation of beauty is a problem, just the limiting beauty standards that current society holds


  • New wave of activists challenge society’s notions of beauty in the form of a documentary: Miss Representation


  • That’s right, fashion doesn’t have to mean vulgar and vain.  In Africa it’s being used as an aid in economic development!
