‘Real life Barbie’ stirs debate over cosmetic surgery

28 Apr

A recent article about 21-year-old Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova has caused an uproar across the Internet, as people debate whether or not the “real life Barbie” achieved her appearance through cosmetic surgery. It has also stoked a larger debate over whether or not excessive pressure is placed on young women by the media and popular culture to fit within a certain cosmetic mold.

Lukyanova’s Tumblr account features some pictures of the model without cosmetics, but in most of the photos she appears to be wearing a lot of makeup. In addition, several readers are questioning whether the photos have been altered, and there’s speculation as to whether Lukyanova underwent extensive plastic surgery at such a young age to get her look.

So, are young women really altering their bodies in an attempt to look like Barbie?

The Power Rangers Back???

28 Apr

OMG! What on earth is going on on campus? It’s shocking how you see people turn fashion into something else. Yes, we know colour block is trending but, should one turn it into something irritating???
Colour block is now an epidemic on campus! See how girls dress up nah dress it down these days. Oh! C’mon girls, this is weird! I mean, just see for yourselves.

P.S: Thank God girls didn’t include colour block on hairdo. It would have been a suicide mission

One more thing, I feel colour block is better when you are doing it alone. It makes you stand out. Unlike doing it in a group, cause really, I think the power rangers are back!!!
