And the activists are up in arms about it.

On the recent episode of Americas Next Top Model, the wannabes did a shoot based on a CSI theme of found bodies, dead ones at the scene of their crimes. The models portrayed victims of electrocution, shot in the head, drowning, decapitation, organs stolen, thrown off the roof, poisoned, thrown down the stairs and a victim of a stabbing.

Some are very suspired that Tyra did this shoot because they believe that if her show is to help change the image of young girls everywhere, then why would Tyra do a shoot that clearly is the opposite to that?

In an article on MSN , the president of the New York chapter of the National Organization For Women is quoted as saying:

“Violence against women is such a reality in our society that I certainly don’t need the entertainment industry making entertainment out of it.”

She does have a point to some degree, but I think sometimes we all take this stuff too seriously and are quick to react without being informed. Do you really think she watches the show?

So now you can wear your toilette paper too!?!

The Emporer Wears Chocolate?

Posted by gottabkd on Wednesday, November 22, 2006

To some degree, I think we all love chocolate! 😛

I know I do! But can you imagine being clothed in chocolate? This would definitely put a spin on “The Emporer’s New Clothes” now wouldn’t it?

Well if you can imagine it and need little bit of inspiration for your next collection, take a look at these pictures from the 2006 Cadbury Chocolate Cotour Collection

I wonder why these are not melting right onto the runway and dripping right off? Does the body temperature have any affect at all?

All I can say is Yum!!

Till next time
