[ It sounds like Wintour isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Vogue is Conde Nast's most profitable publication, Si Newhouse confirms, adding that he has no successor in mind: "Never. I hope she's here 10 years from now, 20 years from now." Wintour, for her part, says: "With all the new media outlets out there, with all the noise, a voice of authority and calm like Vogue becomes more important than ever. The more eyes on fashion, the more opinions about fashion, the more exploration of fashion around the world, the better it is for Vogue. Vogue is like Nike or Coca-Cola — this huge global brand. I want to enhance it, I want to protect it, and I want it to be part of the conversation."] (Wall Street Journal, Fashionologie.com) read more
Her passion, drive, perseverance, and stature… admirable.

Abercrombie Kids Push-Up Bikini
We are all cautious about our children growing up to fast and hope to have them maintain their youth in this fast-paced, rated ‘R’ world! At age 7, all a kid should be worried about is barbies, playing with friends, and candy… not trying to figure out if their cleavage is going to look “appealing enough”.
The aid to this agony is Abercrombie and Fitch. The company has just released a children’s swimwear line – highlighting the triangle push-up bikini! Nymag.com says that back in 2002 A&F was criticized for a line of thongs they released for 7 yr. olds which had suggestive remarks on the front of them. I have a feeling A&F is not concerned with whats “politically correct”, but rather the company….period.
So, what are you thoughts ::SM:: Subscribers?
I think the one thing we have to remember is that the KIDS aren’t the ones who are going to be cutting the check to buy these bathing suits. Definitely don’t think any 2nd graders are pulling in A&F kind of money! Which means – PARENTS are the ones who need to be aware of what they are buying for their children. It will be your responsibility to just say… NO! Let your child grow up naturally. There are already so many other factors, socially and in the media, that are causing your child to be exposed too soon.
Be aware and know you are gorgeous just the way you are….. greatness already happening!

- Cleopatra 1963 Film
Appearing in over 50 movies, Taylor was a legendary actress. Her beauty and appearance on and off the set captured the attention of women everywhere. Her role in the 1963 film Cleopatra inspired many to begin trending Egyptian inspired silhouettes, patterns, and looks into their collections.

Unfortunately, today we say goodbye to Elizabeth Taylor, who passed at the age of 79 to congestive heart failure.
Peace and Rest,
Idk...I'm stuck between Eminem and Sisqo!
Early Tuesday morning, Chris Brown had an interview on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts. The interview was going great until Roberts managed to squeeze in a few comments about Rihanna. Disturbed by the questions, Brown quickly directed the conversation back to talking about his new album. But that’s not even the best part! According to TMZ, Brown lost it in the dressing room, screaming, jumping in the face of a GMA producer, breaking a window, and then storming out of the building with his shirt off (TMZ has the shirtless photos).”
Did anyone know he was this tatted up!?
After the show, Roberts Tweeted
: “Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself. Just my 2nd day on twitter, wonder what tomorrow will bring?”
According to TMZ
, Brown Tweeted, ”I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t.”
He removed the message and posted two more, notes People.com
: “Thank you to everyone who supports my music!!! Key Word (music) !!! Love y’all,” and “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!”
So whats the deal with Chris Breezy? Does he still have anger management issues he needs to deal with? Or maybe the bleach got to his head! Whatever the case, he needs some serious, help, healing, and guidance.
What are your thoughts ::SM:: Subscribers? Do you like his new “good boy, gone bad” look?

Photos were just leaked fromVogue’s annual “Shape” issue! The magazine features gorgeous celebrities and models who have embraced their shapely bodies. In this issue, Vogue speaks further with Rihanna about fame, family, and how she really feels about her curves. Do you think she’s into them? Check out the spread and let me know your thoughts!
Whatever shape you may be… you are greatness already happening!
“EB” Sculpting a.k.a. Eye Brow Sculpting has become increasingly popular for males across the nation from celebrities to business men.
Eyebrow grooming can enhance your appearance tremendously if you’ve got bushy eyebrows or a uni-brow! I know it may seem crazy for some guys to even think of getting their eyebrows shaped, but why not? You get a shape-up on every other part of your face from your hair-line and beard to nose hair, so why hold back now!?
The key is to make sure you get the most natural shape that requires minimal upkeep.
::SM Tips:: for grooming those eye forests!
- K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Sexy! No need to overdo the grooming of your brows. Just a touch up here and there can go a long way.
- Never Arch - What separates you from looking feminine is plucking the middle under-side of your eyebrow to form an arch. Leave this to the ladies fellas! Not arching the brow allows you to maintain that masculine look.
- Enhance, Don’t Re-Shape – Many get conjured into believing that they need to change the whole shape of their eyebrow, however, the look should only be enhanced. With minimal changes you will be able to achieve the most natural look.
Let’s start the new Spring season off with something new guys! You may find that this slight change could result in huge rewards!
Here are a few Specialty Men Spa’s you should check-out:

- Is it just a dream?
So ::SM:: Subscribers - News Update! The latest report fromVogue seems to be contrary to what we believed about Kanye enrolling into school.
Rather than rephrasing the article – Check it out for yourself at: VOGUE.COM
Word on the street is that Kanye West has applied to Central Saint Martins College in London to obtain a Master’s degree in Fashion! I guess this ‘college drop-out’ had a change of heart!
He hasn’t been accepted yet; surprisingly the school is making him interview and proceed through the whole application process! He most recently flew out to London to speak with the head of the program, Professor Louise Wilson, who has guided the career of many of Britain’s top designers including the late Alexander McQueen.
I'm sure she could teach him a thing or two!
I am sure that the college is teetering on whether or not to accept Kanye. Although it would gain a lot of publicity for the university, it also poses a great risk of damaging the schools credibility. The school isn’t hurting for more celebrity representation - THE CLASH, M.I.A., JARVIS COCKER, members of the SEX PISTOLS and STELLA McCARTNEY are all former students of CSM (The Sun).
So what do you think they’ll decide?
Accepted or Not Accepted… you are greatness already happening!
