The web is a buzz today with photos of the new “Always Skinny” mannequins being displayed in Gap’s stores in London and the US. The extreme tiny legs are even more offset by their over sized chests. The mannequins measurements are said to be a16 inch waist and a thigh circumference of 4 inches.

Do you think this is setting a bad example and too much pressure on women and girls? Would this change your mind about shopping at Gap?

6 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR STYLIST BEFORE A COLOR CHANGE:

1.     What is a realistic level of lightness for me to achieve given my current hair color?

Benefit Cosmetics Brings Fashion & Beauty Under One Roof!‏

Benefit Cosmetics Pop-up Shop at Cake Plate Boutique

Napa Valley’s premier designer destination

(www.cakeplateonline.com)

With California’s beauty and fashion experts all under one roof, they’ve got just the tips, tricks, and advice you need to stay primped and stylish this summer!

Every girl knows that a fabulous frock simply cannot go unaccompanied without a fabulous face! But thanks to Cake Plate Boutique’s latest pop-up shop partnership with international beauty brand, Benefit Cosmetics, valley vixens (and you!) can reap the “Benefits” of having a fashion and beauty at their perfectly polished fingertips all summer long!

Serving up fashion well done has always been a Cake Plate forte. But this time, owners and style experts Lindsay Kroll and Paige Smith are pushing the fashion envelope even further, as they concoct on exceptionally scrumptious treat for all glam gals to indulge in – a Benefit branded, 375-square-foot mini-boutique inside the walls of the boutique. A grown-up candy shop for makeup mavens, Cake Plate customers can peruse the Benefit counter for must-haves products like prrrowl, BADgal lash, benetint, posietint, and sugarbomb (to name a few), drop in the brow bar for a touch up from one of the eyebrow experts, or experience a fast lash application – the perfect topper to any chic ensemble. And, if they are in the mood for a bit of style, they can shop designers like Kate Spade, Lauren Moffat, Milly and Trina Turk in the separate Cake Plate section of the store.

I have always been a fan of Benefit and their newest launch Stay Don’t Stray is no exception. My eyes look so much brighter and awake when I use Stay Don’t Stray, I never thought of needing a concealer and brightener but once I saw how great my eyes looked I’m hooked. On top of all the magic it does to open your eyes it holds shadow tight all day keeping you looking great way past happy hour.
