” Breast cancer survivors often have to deal with the discomfort of breast prosthesis, especially at the beach, when they want to be active and swim and play with their children. These modern swimsuits, dubbed “Monokinis,” help eliminate the discomfort breast cancer survivors face when they go to the beach and show us their bravery, hope and determination. The project’s Finnish designers state that breast cancer survivors should not be ashamed of their scars – instead, they should feel proud of them, for they are marks of a battle well-fought. “Monokini 2.0 is a social art project that re-examines popular culture’s narrow view of a woman’s ideal appearance,” they explain.

“ Our other aim is to dig into the restrictive social taboo on what is considered appropriate – of exposing something that is not there. Seeing an exposed breast is considered nakedness, but why is exposing no breast also considered nakedness?“, the designers behind this project ask.

Fashion Designer Lilly Pulitzer Dies at 81

 

 

 

 

” In the late 1950s, the Palm Beach socialite had time to spare and a wealthy husband who owned citrus groves, so she opened an orange juice stand just off the island’s main shopping street. Pulitzer needed to hide all the juice stains on her clothes, though. Instead of just putting on an apron, she asked her seamstress to make some sleeveless dresses in colorful fruit prints, and a fashion staple was born.

Pulitzer died at her home Sunday, according to Quattlebaum Funeral and Cremation Services. She was 81.

Pulitzer’s tropical print dresses became a sensation in the 1960s when then-first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who attended boarding school with Pulitzer, wore one of the sleeveless shifts in a Life magazine photo spread.

Pulitzer was born Lilly McKim on Nov. 10, 1931, to a wealthy family in Roslyn, N.Y.

In 1952, she married Pete Pulitzer, the grandson of newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer, whose bequest to Columbia University established the Pulitzer Prize.

Pulitzer had three children in quick succession. After the third was born, she had a nervous breakdown and ended up in a mental hospital that catered to upscale clientele in New York. A doctor there told her that she needed to find a job.”

 

 

 

 

Lady Gaga Bares Her Gun Rack

 

 

 

” Does she have a license to pack all that heat?

Lady Gaga brazenly gave a whole new meaning to the term “gun rack” this weekend when the provocative pop star wore an “assault rifle” bra during a show in Canada — despite the sensitive debate over such weapons gripping the US in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.

Gaga looked like a musical gun moll as she strolled on stage in Vancouver wearing the outrageous outfit, which is likely to draw even more fashion criticism than the infamous “meat dress” she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

Gaga wore the gun bra Friday — just a day after Vice President Joe Biden met with Congress and the NRA over curbing gun violence after the elementary-school massacre in Newtown, Conn., which left 20 kids dead. “

The tone deafness is monumental . 

IMAO on the hypocrisy inherent in people like Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour regaling the 99% on behalf of Obama .  

 “Yeah, nothing says “the common touch” like a Hollywood millionaire bragging about throwing a swanky party.”
