There's One Big Catch With Gap's New Ad Celebrating Diversity
Huffington Post - 9 months
A new Gap campaign directed by British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful is being widely praised for its diverse cast of characters, including big names like Christie Brinkley, Maria Borges, Wiz Khalifa and Priyanka Chopra.  But do you notice anything in particular about the group of happy people chosen to “embody American culture today,” according to a campaign caption? If you guessed the sheer lack of body or size diversity, you’d be correct.  Eninful, who in April became the first black editor of British Vogue, knocked it out of the park as far as racial diversity goes. He also included at least one older model and at least one gay model. But although Gap executive Craig Brommers touts the campaign as “showing the many faces of what it means to be an American and bringing all those sides together,” the image doesn’t quite bear that out.  If Gap wanted to show a true slice of America, perhaps it could have featured any one person that even slightl...

Adriana Lima Should Think Twice About Her Retirement Plans
Huffington Post - 12 months
Supermodel Adriana Lima doesn’t have a specific plan in place to retire from the Victoria’s Secret runway, but she has a certain timeframe in mind.  The 35-year-old VS Angel recently spoke about her eventual departure from the catwalk in an interview with Ocean Drive magazine.  “My goal is to do the fashion show till I’m 40, at least,” Lima said. “Or [as long as] gravity is on my side.”  The model, who first appeared on the runway in 1999 and has walked the show 17 times, is forgetting one major thing ― it’s more than possible to have a modeling career well beyond your 40s.  Look at all of women opening the door for models beyond 40:  1. 63-year-old Christie Brinkley working a bikini.  The gorgeous model posed alongside her daughters Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Brinkley Cook in the newest issue of Sport Illustrated’s Swimsuit edition.  @christiebrinkley is back in a bikini for #SISwim 2017 (and she's brought two very special guests!).

Raising Daughters Without Body Issues When We Never Even Fixed Our Own
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Once at a family reunion, when I was 16, one of my aunts, upon seeing me, loudly announced, "Oh, Lord, look at Sissy, she's going to be BIG like the rest of us!" I suppose I must have chunked up a bit since she last laid eyes on me. It was Thanksgiving 1979 and I didn't touch a bite of food the rest of the day. At 16, I had zero knowledge or awareness of the eating disorder epidemic that was about to sweep the country. I just knew I wanted in. My aunt's comment ignited a resolved determination in me that ran unchecked for many years. I clearly remember thinking, "Over my dead body am I going to be BIG like the rest of you!" I was in good company because every girl I knew had "body issues" in the 80s. Seems like everyone was a dot somewhere on the spectrum, even if it didn't entirely run their lives. There were anorexics, bulimics and they even coined the term "bulorexic" for the girls that couldn't quite commit. I'm not exactly sure what I was - I was ne...
