If you guys haven’t seen this video yet, you absolutely have to check it out. Just watch it really. And I have been talking about models & our perception of beauty lately, so it fits in.
You can either click on the YouTube player to view it, or go to Dove’s site, & click ‘play film’. There, you can also find more information about their ‘Campaign for Real Beauty’, & a discussion group.
I’ve watched the video about 5 times in the last 10 mins now.

Ok, so Nello’s back, & she posted a link that someone gave her on her website. This is just all kinds of CRAZY. Seriously. I mean, it makes me never want to look at another celebrity again. EVER. You know how they did that study that proved that monkeys like to see pics of the “celebrity monkey of their pack”?
Well, now that I see some of our celebs in their original photos, I feel sick. Not sick b/c they look horrible. No, they look fine. Normal, you might say. But the fact that we’ve been force-fed an image for years. Lied to, consciously misled. That makes me sick.
Go here to FluidEffect.com. Click on ‘Portfolio’, & ‘Agree’ to the terms. Then, back in the left menu, click on the ‘before/after’. And get ready for what you’re about to see.
I have to say, I do love the internet, & my blog, & my blog-buddies. I have really discovered so much in the last year.
