This year’s 33 brightest stars, up close and unscripted.
I have to say that I love this concept; this stripped down, come as you are sort of thing, where everyone looks like they really look not how the industry wants us to see them. And I have to say, that though there are some bags and dark circles, some human imperfection (lord help us all!) they all look beautiful. I don’t see what is “wrong with this”– I’m not saying that someone is saying there IS something wrong with this, albeit by all the airbrushing and over-styling that gets done on most shoots, you would think that they way all of these women rolled up to the shoot – they were somehow NOT camera ready. I don’t know how these actresses (and actors — I didn’t show the men but click on the link at the end of the post for them yummy!) feel about the pics but I would be fine with seeing more of this on newsstands and in the pages of my favorite rags. I think it help a great deal in helping women feel better about how they look– and balance the perception of how we think we are supposed to look! Kudos to W magazine.
