You girls on here defending the super thin models of FP sound very young, naive and stupid! People have the right to say what they feel, and if you lost a daughter to anorexia, or witnessed young women starve themselves or put themselves down because they don't look like the bony models in FP, then you just don't know what you are talking about. I know all about the disease and yes, in my opinion, a lot of the models in FP resemble women I have counseled that have anorexia. For one, it began with staring at catalogs and wishing to look like these women from a very young age. Please do not flip this issue into an anorexia versus obesity debate, because both are very serious issues. No woman is suppose resemble a coat hanger, no matter what your profession is. Also added to my patient list is an ex professional model, whose name I cannot share. The damage to your bodies is permanent. The young woman you influence is permanent. All the pretty clothing in the world can not cover up the fact that most of my patients are damaged psychologically, physically, and some cannot ever have children. If I could give any of you advice, it would be to not be as naive as you seem and learn the many ways this disease takes a quiet place in so many of our young women's lives.

My sisters have always been skinny and have been called anorexic quite a few times, they just brush it off because they know they're not but it does bother them that people just assume they're anorexic without really knowing. They have been very thin since high school they're in their early 30's and both weight about 100 lbs each. One of them looks like the model except she has more boobs. They're very healthy women who do not limit themselves on what they eat They like their doctor said have a very fast metabolism. People need to really inform themselves about this condition before making assumptions.

Post image for Blogger Diary: Scrubbing Away Winter Blues

Well it’s definitely Winter. While I seem to hold up to the cold better than others (growing up in Syracuse, NY will teach anyone) my skin has been feeling the effects. Read more »

Hey Rhonda, if you follow the link it will take you to Amazon where you can order it online. If you don't want to order it online, you can probably find it - or something similar - at any natural foods or skincare store. Just look for something with almond oil and vitamin E. Good luck! And Sara - yes, you can also make scrubs with epsom salts. Use the same ratio of 1/3cup oil to 1cup salts with 8-10drops of essential oil. I also like to grind the salts down a bit more if they're really chunky. I happened to already have brown sugar in the house and didn't feel like spending money for the salt which is why I used the sugar. Whichever you prefer - I think that they both work great!

Yay! Syracuse in the house! :-) Thanks Naomi! I will definitely make some of this.

I have a special treat for you today! The amazing Dennis Lanni, who has done the hair for a number of our catalogs (including May and July, pictured above), demonstrates how to do one of his favorite braid styles on model Noot Seear. Hope you like!

jenny -Jun 10, 2014, 1:12PM
I'm I the only one that's totally lost? When he "turns" or "twists" the braid around, is he simply turning it, or is he flipping it over and turning it. Help:(

Post image for Beauty Tips to Beat the Winter Blues

I am not a winter person – and neither is my hair or skin. I feel like this time of year, my lips are always chapped, my skin is extra dry and my hair is a static mess. Read more »

Great post! I have the same problem and to battle dry skin i use a cream, brown sugar and sea salt scrub. Super easy to make, just buy whipping cream (the more fat the batter, for once hehe) and mix it with equal parts sea salt and brown sugar so it the consistency of a pudding. Than hop in a hot bath and scrub with the mixture, all over. It's all natural, smells great, and leaves skin feeling velvety!

a great way to exfoliate your lips is some brown sugar with some honey!

Post image for Hair Tip: The Neon Trend Continues

I kinda flipped over this hairdo when I saw it on our website! It’s super easy to get the look too – just tie some neon twine or ribbon into your hair and braid away! When you get to the end of the braid, use the twine to wrap around your hair as a tie. Read more »

Post image for Holiday Makeup Tutorial!

Our amazing limited edition dresses required an equally beautiful lookbook. For this shoot, our team worked with photographer Joshua Allen and our talented makeup artist Deanna Hagan created six stunning looks to compliment each dress.  The designer of each dress had a vision for how they wanted their creation to be styled, and the makeup and hair played a large role in that.

You guys should do a tutorial for the high bun/top knot hair style that a lot of the FP girls are rocking on the website (and this post as well - "rose gold" and "bold beauty"). This is a good example: I also know there are quite a lot of these types of hair tutorials on you tube already, but I want to know how the FP girls/stylists do it :) thnx

Our office coordinator is always amazingly put together. It’s hard not to notice her glowing skin, colored lips, and bold brows. Everyone knows these kind of results don’t come without knowing a thing or two, so I caught up with her to get an insider’s peak. She shares on all of her favorite products and has some great tips to give. I learned a lot and will definitely be trying out a thing or two. Read more »

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
Steffy -Oct 29, 2011, 11:07PM
I bought the tinted moisturizer today. I hate foundation and I have been using different tinted moisturizers and have been unsuccessful in finding one I love... There's some likes but not a love yet. Haha! I hope it works! :)

Post image for NYFW: Hair Inspiration

New York Fashion Week is over, and while I don’t really consider myself to be the most fashionable person, I still like to check out the shows online and follow some of the behind the scenes coverage on tumblr. And beyond just the fashion inspiration, I found myself saving so many photos of hair styles! I doubt I’d be able to tame my mess of hair to look like any of these but it’s still great inspiration… Read more »

this adorable fabric headband caught my eye yesterday…and our buyer who is wearing it had a great idea! you can make these with old free people bags :) i know i, for one, have about ten of them lying around so i decided to try it out! Read more »

Anna -Dec 09, 2011, 12:39PM
super super simple. yet very stylish. I think, based on the fabric you used, it's much better to use printed or colorful fabrics.
Kb -Jun 28, 2011, 12:41AM
How long was the fabric you used? I'm having issues making it into a turban.
