Here is the cover of Vogue from April 1940
"The Vogue woman is instructed on how to handle welcoming back her husband home for leave from the war: "He likes to spend some evenings quietly at home; comfortable chairs; easy, idle talk. You in a dress with a sweeping feminine skirt and gentle colours: Worth's dinner dress – the skirt in linen, plaided blue, pink and magenta; the bodice in lilac angora discreetly banded with amethyst stones and sequins."

As with all things celebrity gossip... you must take this with a grain of salt and a shot of tequila:o). Apparently the rumor on the set of New Moon - oh excuse me The Twilight Saga: New Moon - is that Robert Pattison stinks and not in a late to set, forget his lines kinda way. More of a greasy hair, dirty clothes and cigarette butt kind of odor. I guess this isn't really news for some since the way he showed up at press for Twilight was very homeless chic. The real question i'm asking is... does it even matter? With a face like that i'd gladly breathe through my mouth - yup I said it!

Sue Palmer, author of Toxic Childhood, says the "total obsession" with pink stunts girls' personalities. "I am very worried about it. You can't find girls over the age of three who aren't obsessed with the colour. It's under their skin from a very early age and severely limits choices, and decisions.
"We have got to get something done about the effect marketeers are having. We are creating little fluffy pink princess, an image of girliness, that is very specific and which some girls don't want to go along with, but due to overwhelming peer pressure, are having to conform to."
The article goes on to overlook what I think are the important issues underlying this question. What we really need to talk about, which is demonstrated by the pink example, is how our society constantly polices gender roles. This policing starts at a young age and color preferences are just one of many examples we could use. While the article makes the point that exposure to pink itself is not going to seriously change a girl's life, what bigger differences underlie this superficial examples? We treat boys and girls differently in so many ways, many of which we don't even perceive. The cumulative effect of all these slight behavioral and social differences are what really has an impact on both genders, and continues to reinforce ideas about gender difference.

So I watched the season finale of The City tonight and if you watched it then you know it was all about the breakup of Whitney and Jay (sorry if you haven't seen it yet but you had to see that one coming). So Whitney is at this huge DVF party to celebrate the Fall 09' runway show, and she is throwing herself a big ole' pity party and who comes up to give her some awesome advice??? Miss Diane von Furstenberg herself! Now I know the whole show is completely staged but I like to believe that aint no one telling DVF what to say. Here are her words...
