Feb 12th 2010 2:21PM Some people just don't understand fashion. It is not, let me repeat NOT about fitting in. Fashion is creativity and that means that it absolutely should go against the grain as long as it makes a statement. When I look at these clothes, I may not be thinking that if only I had them I would be the hippest, coolest kid in the schoolyard. However, I do wonder what thoughts were going through the designer's mind when they were created. I look at those prints and think, "That's right. It's a whole new time for us to fill and use wisely. It's a new day, a new decade, a new millennium! No one is going to bring my point of view to the world but me. Grab life by the nads!" So you may not be interested in wearing these clothes but if you don't see anything about them that you like -at all, I suggest you march your simple behind on down to Tar-jhay, so you can look, think, and feel like every other million people who don't care about much and think the world was created with no purpose other than to satisfy them and them alone.

Feb 11th 2010 3:20PM it truly pains me to say this but we also have to look at what he could have done to himself. Haven't you ever been working on something and seen it begin to take off; well, what do you do? In an ideal world, once you've completed a little bit you take a break, refocus and preserve your energy to come back to it with a fresh mind. I don't think anyone can say that that's what he did. Seriously, embarking on a world singing tour with hemorrhages on your lungs? Why? *choke the tears* He just wanted to do so well so badly and didn't see it fit to stop a while and just gather himself. He was going to keep working, keep working, and try to get R&R on the side. I imagine he'll have the rest his human body needed, and am hopeful that he'll have what is needed by his soul.

Anyway, I am sure that I have the small sultry (although I feel my lips are far more seductive) and they have a tendency to puff; actually they've been puffy since kindergarten. I have found that the highlighter in a shimmery NOT necessarily glitter-y is an absolute must. When I use darker colors I highlight all the way up to the brow and down to the lash. I just do the corners and brows for more natural looks. I always use a liner pretty thick in the middle (none in the corner) and coming out to a wisp JUST beyond the last lash. Using a different color mascara from the liner and shadow really brings out the sparkle in my brown eyes. Try : black liner, gold highlight, pick a shadow, and green or purple mascara for brown eyes. It's pretty simple and really brings 'em out.
Feb 4th 2010 4:33PM Too much trolling for a serious discussion here. Nobody mentioned racism until it was someone trying to say that blacks were crying it. No, I haven't read all of the comments but after the first page I would just like to say that people who don't want blacks to feel like equal members of society should take their comments to a place where they don't obliterate the initial topic.
Feb 3rd 2010 3:06PM The only person I see turning their back on negroes is you. Put a lid on your bashing for a minute and instead of trying to blame of society's problems on black people get a clue, pay attention to what is going on and think of a way NOT to add to the problem.
Feb 3rd 2010 3:03PM Words cannot express the way I feel about this. If they can I am too flustered to grasp them. I have experienced that helpless feeling she's talking about where she is made to feel as though she is the criminal or it is somehow her fault as she attempts to pursue justice, but I wish to GOD that she would bite that bullet and work with whoever might be able to find these guys. Those boys better hope with every bit of what little hardiness they've got that this woman doesn't have the type of family she appears that she might have. Because if they did something like that they must have been in an area that they feel they run: and that likely means they'll be around there again. If she has anyone in her family that feels the way I would about my grandmother they'll wish it had been the cops that caught up to them.
Feb 3rd 2010 2:12PM Just because you want the left over racism to continue strong and unnoticed, doesn't mean that there is somebody here who wants to hear that. Write to Vanity Fair with put downs like that, since you seem to think that this is the type of problem that should continue to thrive.
Feb 3rd 2010 2:09PM You must not have read anything on this page boy! Take your crap to the place that you want to be in instead of building it up and trying to ruin the place that someone else wants to be in!
Feb 3rd 2010 2:05PM The part you seem to have overlooked is that plethora being a RESPONSE to what should not have taken place to begin with. Another thing, when Ebony does a story about most talented black entertainers, it is clearly stated as such, whereas when many other magazines do a story on the most talented entertainers only whites are included - and that is where the disconcerting suggestion is made. This may not be the place to say it but I am totally fine with whites doing things in support of their race. It becomes a problem when the focus becomes putting another race (especially mine!) down, instead of uplifting self-esteem. It's like gangs that hurt and kill people are bad, but the ones that go out cleaning parks (we'll call them gangs for this purpose) and setting examples for others to build on are good. Unfortunately, we don't see enough esteem building in a lot of the white media, but we do see a lot of nagging "I'm better than you AND you're worse than me."
