H&M Swimwear Models Are Nothing But Robo-Babes.

When looking over the latest lingerie & fashion news, whilst sipping my morning cup of tea, I noticed that today's headlines were reporting on yet another fashion scandal. 

High-street retailer H&M have admitted to using computerised bodies and then super imposing a human head onto their swimwear models. 

Yet again, we have been shown that not all celebs/models/anyone who has a photo taken, are the ‘perfect person’ with perfect skin, hair, nails etc. No matter what their size they still have blemishes, cellulite and imperfections on their bodies. 

I tweeted last week at my shock (and no longer beating myself) up at the idea of not having great skin or being as toned as I would like to be. As an article was published showing the launch of a new tool that enables people to see who has been photo shopped in magazines. Another extreme example of 'body perfection' is celebrity blogger, Mr Paparazzi’s, fake ‘Ab’s on his 'Celebrity' Big Brother appearance. 

H&M's Thoughts...

So how have H&M responded to this revelation…here is what spokesman H├ącan Andersson had to say:

“It’s not a real body, it is completely virtual and made [by] the computer. We take pictures of the clothes on a doll that stands in the shop, and then create the human appearance with a program on [a] computer.”

“This is not about ideals or to show off a perfect body, we do this to demonstrate an item of clothing. This is done for all clothing, not just for underwear, both male and female clothing,” 

First of all, H&M are misleading customers as they do not state on their site that these women are computerised except their face. Second of all they say its not about ideals or the perfect body then why haven’t they 1. Used a mannequin all the way through or 2. Used a real women? 

The issue of how we look is being a pressing matter within society. With millions of women buying products to make them ‘perfect’ (don’t get me wrong, I am one of these women also) but maybe it’s time that we all took a step back and realised that we are all beautiful no matter what our shape, size or looks show. 

Just some food for thought, I’d love to get all your opinions?

Happy 30th Birthday Britney

She's had multi platinum selling singles and albums, stared in Hollywood movies and made guest appearances in a number of popular US TV shows. 

She's gone from school girl to space chick, a snake charmer to a bad girl and a lion tamer to dance queen. Over the past 14 years she has been a constant star in the media spotlight and today she celebrates her 30th birthday.

I would like to say a very Happy 30th Birthday to the original princess of pop, Britney Spears! 

From the age of 11 I have admired and watched Britney Spears grow into a young women, so what if she got lost along the way, don't we all? But today she is still making great music and touring the world to see all her fans. 

Britney Loves Lingerie

So to celebrate this momentous occasion, I have collected my favourite lingerie styles of Britney. Like myself and the billions of women who love lingerie, Britney loves to show off her innovative and unique lingerie styles on stage. 

When looking through Britney's performances I also started to notice that she also loves to wear cute lingerie in her music videos. When looking checking through the back catalogue of Britney hits on YouTube. I came across one of her (not so popular hits) most raunchy lingerie styled videos that I have ever seen from Britney. As a lover of lingerie I don't know why I haven't blogged about this before! Maybe it is simply because I love the early Britney or that I just wish that she could erase the 'K-Fed' years. 

Either this is Britney looking rather sexy and cute in the music video, My Prerogative.
