The Rise in Popularity of Celebrity Magazines

In recent times, celebrity magazines have jumped to the forefront of the reader’s circle when it comes to magazines. In fact, celebrity magazines have become more popular than news magazines or public interest magazines. Celebrities have always been popular, and people have always liked to subscribe to them. However, there has been a trend recently that puts celebrity magazine readership at an all time high. There are several reasons for this.

First of all, there are simply more celebrity magazines, celebrity gossip centered television shows, websites, and blogs, as well as more celebrity news sources in general. The fact that there are several different magazines that come out every week including celebrity news stories is not only an outcome of the rise in popularity, but part of the cause. When there are so many different news magazines that come out containing different pieces of celebrity news, one sometimes feels as if they need to buy all of them in order to get all of the celebrity news that they were looking for. This is in part what leads to higher readership for celebrity magazines – simply the fact that there are more of them out there that need to be read.

Another reason that celebrity magazines are more popular is that there are more outlets for celebrity news. With half hour news programs that come out each evening during the week containing more tidbits of celebrity news, it is easy to see why the public views news as “info-tainment” and lacking in the credibility it had in the past. In fact, because the major networks have celebrity news gossip on each evening, there is an increase in pressure to churn out weekly news magazines revolving around celebrity gossip, because there is a demand for that kind of material and the magazines can rapidly attract the readership they need.

There are several reasons for increased readership of celebrity gossip news magazines that revolve around the actual celebrities themselves. In recent years, the national news media has made major announcements and brought lots of attention to the stars. For instance, if a celebrity rises from nothing to fame, more people begin to believe that this could also happen to them as well. More people are obsessed with attaining a celebrity lifestyle no matter what their income may be. When a person can relate with the stars in that type of way, they are going to be more apt to buy the celebrity magazines in order to read the gossip about the celebrities.

Yet another reason for the rise in popularity of the celebrity news magazines might be simpler than you think. The celebrities themselves are simply making more news now than they have in the past. More of the celebrities are getting into things other than what they are famous for in the first place. This is a two fold situation for celebrities. For one, there are many celebrities who are doing things because of their celebrity status. They have learned that their names can carry a lot of weight, and if they are to get behind campaigns or causes, people are going to listen to them. This is something that a lot of celebrities have been doing, and this positive use of their fame is something that readers also want to learn a lot about and want to read about on a regular basis – especially if the causes that the celebrities are championing are causes that they agree with as well.

The other reason that celebrities have been doing more lately is not so noble. In fact it is simply the other side of the coin. Many celebrities have been acting out for lots of reasons, and it is this action that is causing there to be more stories about them in the celebrity magazines. Some of these actions might be dangerous, extreme, or just plain stupid – but it is the most over the top and ridiculous stories that get the press worked up and that get readership of the celebrity magazines to be on the rise. Many of the celebrities have simply decided that any press is going to be good press, and will do whatever they can do in order to get the publicity that they need.

No matter what the reason, the different ways that celebrities have become more and more popular has led to a general increase in the amount of readership that each celebrity magazine has. This is not tapering off – it is simply leading to more and more popularity for the celebrities, as well as for the magazines themselves. The celebrities benefit from the publicity, and the celebrity magazines benefit from the extra subscriptions and overall sales that certain celebrities can generate.

Anne Hathaway: Hollywood Princess

Anne Hathaway is an American actress known for her sophisticated style and her evolving movie career. In the last year she has made many magazine headlines because of her personal life but now the media attention has turned to Oscar-buzz for her current film role.

Anne Hathaway’s first breakout movie role was as Disney’s princess in the Disney family movie “The Princess Diaries,” also starring legendary singer and actress Julie Andrews. This role established Hathaway’s career. She went onto star in other family movies in the next three years including “Ella Enchanted” and a sequel to “The Princess Diaries.”

In 2005, Hathaway broke away from the family-movie roles and starred in adult-themed movies like “Havoc,” “Brokeback Mountain” and “The Devil Wears Prada.” Most recently she starred in “Becoming Jane” and “Get Smart,” which was released in June of 2008.

People magazine has featured Hathaway first as a 2001 “breakthrough stars” and again in 2006 as one of the “50 Most Beautiful People.” Hathaway has appeared in fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair and InStyle for her sophisticated personal style. InStyle magazine editors dub the actress’s style “ever-elegant.”

During the summer of 2008 while Hathaway was promoting her summer movie, “Get Smart” with Steve Carrell, Hathaway’s private life was all over the pages of celebrity magazines including People magazine, Life and Style Magazine, Us Weekly magazine and other celebrity magazines. The media attention stemmed from Hathaway’s June break up with her boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, after nearly four years together. Follieri, an aspiring Italian real estate mogul, who shortly after the break-up was arrested, jailed and charged with stealing millions from investors while posing as a Vatican agent. In September People magazine reported Folllieri pleaded guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy and faces sentencing Oct 3 and his lawyers have started negotiating the terms of his plea-bargain. The New York Times also reported the plea bargain required him to give up $2.4 million, 12 watches and 9 pieces of jewelry; the jewelry, The New York Times reported, is believed to be Hathaway’s.

Immediately following Follieri’s arrest Hathaway remained silent regarding the situation but a month later the actress appeared on the cover of W magazine and talked about the difficult times, saying “Right now I don’t have the wherewithal to be anything except professional,” she said at the time. “As soon as I found out about the arrest, I had to get on a plane to Mexico to do a press tour for Get Smart. And then I spent a week in shock at a friend’s house. And then I had to go back and do more press, and I haven’t stopped since.”

In the fall of 2008 Anne Hathaway will appear in the indie drama film “Rachel Getting Married,” directed by Jonathan Demme. Her role as Kym, a recovering drug addict is the most dramatic departure from her innocent Disney princesses in family films, as well as the more mature roles in “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Get Smart.” Many entertainment and celebrity magazines are speculating Hathaway’s performance will garner Oscar-attention. Entertainment Weekly said of Hathaway’s performance, “Since playing at the Venice and Toronto festivals, the movie has earned the 25-year-old actress the kind of reviews that precede Oscar nominations. Owen Gleiberman, for one, wrote from Toronto: ”Hathaway is a revelation: She shoots far beyond giving a damn about her ‘likability’ in a performance as scalding as it is controlled. She makes toxic narcissism magnetic.”

Most recently Hathaway told magazine reporters at a Sept. 15 press conference, including People magazine, “Everything that has happened to me, good and bad, I feel has happened for a reason.”

Along with “Rachel Getting Married,” Hathaway appears in the 2008 drama “Passengers” and the upcoming 2009 comedy romance “Bride Wars.”

Evening Dresses: Hollywood Style

The rise of the Hollywood fashion icons have seen an onslaught of gorgeous, must-have evening dresses like no other. Evening dresses of various designs, styles, shades could drive evening dress aficionados crazy.

Armed with their magazine cutouts and pen, these aficionados rush to their favorite couturier and ask for a copy of these Hollywood starlet’s evening dresses, at a much lesser cost.

There are others, however, who prefer to design their own evening gowns. With a vision and a sketch book, these mavens draw all original evening dresses, with just a touch or an obvious inspiration of Hollywood. So here are some tips on how to design you own evening dresses, Hollywood style.

1. Watch Hollywood Entertainment News

Watching Hollywood lifestyle channels or entertainment news exposes you to a variety of Hollywood evening dresses. You can check out some lifestyle channel’s best and worst dressed. These are legit – they are sorted out by legitimate fashion critics, after all. These best dressed and worst dressed lists will give you a very useful cue on what dress designs to go for and what to stay away from.

2. Leaf through Fashion Magazines

Fashion magazines feature the latest evening dresses worn by these Hollywood stars. Fashion magazines are actually way better than watching television. Instead of encrypting the dress designs in your head, fashion magazines give you the luxury of merely showing it to your dress designer or dress maker and highlighting areas which you want altered.

3. One and One Makes One

Take an evening dress design worn by one Hollywood actress, and another worn by another Hollywood icon and mold them together to form a uniquely gorgeous evening dress. Other than being a “half-original”, you will have the privilege of choosing which designs to pick out and which to leave out.

4. Elegance Minus the Frills

A lot of the most gorgeous evening dresses actually have one or more of the following: frills, laces, feathers, sequins, crystals, diamonds, trains, corsets and double sided tapes. These are indeed lovely addition to their evening dresses. However, it does not necessarily mean it could work well for a mere mortal such as you. Have the dress made in a way that does not alter its elegance, yet takes away the frills, laces, feathers, sequins, crystals, diamonds, trains or the corsets – as well as the need for double sided tapes. Note: trains and frills are for wedding dresses. Laces and corsets are more fitting for a bridesmaid dress.

5. The color and the cut

The color may look perfect for the Hollywood star that you copied the evening dress design from, but that does not necessarily mean it will look great on your skin tone. The cut may suit her to a tee, but that does not mean it will have the same effect on you. Get inspiration from that Hollywood evening dress, but alter it to make it truly yours. Choose the right shade for your skin tone and choose the right cut for your body type.

WRU surprised by Marler decision

Following England player Joe Marler’s “gypsy boy” comment to Wales prop Samson Lee, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has expressed its surprise that he has not been punished.

Marler has since apologised for his slur during the England versus Wales match, while Lee has accepted that the passing comment was “banter” about him being from the travelling community.
Marler was also charged with striking Rob Evans, but evaded punishment.

Speaking about this lack of punishment for the reference made to Lee, the WRU has released a statement confirming its surprise at the Six Nations disciplinary outcome. It also commented that it will stand by its beliefs that any racist language should not be tolerated in the sport.

The WRU goes on to say that it will be furthering its investigations with the Six Nations, believing that this incident has highlighted broader issues within rugby that need addressing.

England versus France

Involved in many a rugby drill such as http://www.sportplan.net/drills/Rugby/Defensive-Patterns/Flat-Defence-Straightline.jsp, Marler was allowed to play in the Six Nations game between England and France. Having received no sanction for the comment or elbow strike on an opponent, Marler took part in England’s final game in Paris.

The statement released by the Six Nations confirmed that it was aware of the severity of the comment made by Marler and that it did not condone this in any way; however, it ruled that it was said in the heat of the moment, hence why no disciplinary action was taken.

The statement went on to say that Marler deeply regretted the remark and had already apologised to Lee without being prompted. The Six Nations also noted that Eddie Jones, England’s head coach, had reprimanded him and had reiterated the important role he plays as an English international rugby player.

Calls for a ban

Despite the ruling of the Six Nations, there have been many campaigners calling for a ban, including other sporting figures and those within the travelling community. Warren Gatland, Wales’s head coach, was also criticised for how he responded to the incident. Gatland has since apologised for deeming the reference “banter”.

Shaun Edwards, Wales’s defence coach, said that while he could not speak for himself, he could speak on behalf of the WRU to reiterate that any form of discrimination, such as sexuality, religion or race, would not be condoned.

How to Become a Travel Photographer

Most travel photographers are freelancers with a good eye, able to capture the beauty of every place they visit, not matter if it’s Egypt or the corner shop. When it comes to being a travel photographer, it’s essential not only to be open to unexpected trips and requests, but also to understand well what the market needs and being able to provide that at all times.
Become a Travel Photographer

Instructions

  1. Learn the craft. Travel photographers may specialize in one type of photography, but they still need to learn how to handle a camera, how to shoot properly and how to identify good photo opportunities. Taking a class at a local college or continuing education center can help, or you can look for online workshops like the ones offered by the New York Institute of Photography (see Resources below).
  2. Buy a copy of Photographer’s Market or similar guidebook. These guides include detailed listings of magazines and databases open to submissions from freelance photographers, including travel photographers. The book will help you understand the format required for submissions, the quality and sizes expected and what a market pays.
  3. Study the market. Because travel photography is often used to accompany articles written by others, it’s important that you take your time to research the type of work featured in magazines and databases. Go through the pages and look at the photos with a critical eye, rather than as an observer. Try to understand the angles, lights and effects used to create the final composition.
  4. Network. Especially at the beginning of your career, it’s important to connect with the right people in order to land assignments or tag along tours and travels. This could mean doing some work for hotels and travel companies, selling your work to stock photo databases or taking some short trips in your own state (see Resources below).
  5. Create a portfolio. Since you will be dealing with people all over the world, having a website is essential. You can create an online portfolio divided by topic or type of photography, as well as having a physical, print portfolio in case local clients want to see how the final product turns out.

Music news – The magazines that shaped the music industry

Music news as we know it today developed out of the early magazines that caught onto the growth of the popular music industry early on in the 20th Century. Melody Maker was one of the first, introducing itself in 1926 (around the same time that the first electric guitars and amplifiers began to emerge) and targeting musicians. However, as music became more and more popular the music magazines of the day began to target the general public and the introduction of new, rival magazines hit the shelves.

The 1950s is when the real battle started with Melody Maker going head to head with the new kids in town, the NME, an amalgamation of previous titles Musical Express and Accordion Weekly by new owner and music promoter Maurice Kinn. Previously more interested in jazz, Melody Maker was a late convert to the advent of rock and roll, but as the sixties swung in favour of bands like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the ground was set for big readership figures for both publications.

The 1960s also saw the coming of more politicised voices to the publication of music news with the launch of the Berkley Barb in 1965 and Rolling Stone in 1967. Criticism of the Vietnamese war, the publication of Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the counterculture revolution of the 1960s sat next to The Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix and Jim Morrison cover stories.

This political edge to music publication didn’t reach the British music news until the late 1970s with the dawning of the age of punk. However, the early 70s saw the introduction of a new rival, Sounds, which quickly became one of the three music weekly magazines to generate good levels of readership. It’s edge came from its ability to see the credibility of new musical movements like Punk early on.

The 1980s would see a mixed bag of journalism in the music industry, with the hip-hop wars affecting the NME and a more populist standpoint reigning at Melody Maker until its intellectual renaissance in 1986. However, it would be the 90s that would see the story of modern British music journalism come to a head. The rise of Britpop and the introduction & success of monthly magazines Q (1986) and Mojo (1993) left Melody Maker without a clear audience or direction, and so in 2000 is ceased publication, merging with its long time rival NME, while Sounds bit the dust nearly a decade earlier in 1991.

The 2000s were left to NME and despite its ropey start to the decade, it would eventually find its footing again with bands like White Stripes, The Strokes and The Libertines. However, with readership dropping fast to just over a tenth of its hey-day 300,000 circulation, publications like NME have pumped significant investment into their online music news to compensate.

With the arrival of a new decade, it’s hard to say that any of the remaining music magazines are doing anything particularly trailblazing, but then neither is the music industry as a whole. With the nation locked into the X-Factor culture, genuinely credible new music often finds it difficult to break out of the underground world that it too often resides. The death of Top of the Pops in 2006 meant that the only music to be played on terrestrial television in the UK during prime time viewing was based around one talent contest or another. With circulation figures so low, maybe it’s time for the icons of music news to take back what they have spent decades helping to create.

Celebrity Baby Trend: Twins

Multiple births—including twin births–are at an all-time high in the U. S. According to the Center for Disease Control the number of twin births in 2005 at the time of the last consensus was 133,122. So what is driving the twin pregnancy trend? More women are having babies after age 30 and more are taking fertility drugs. Both boost the chance of carrying more than one baby. Age-related hormonal changes in women may cause more than one egg to be released at a time, which boosts the odds of conceiving fraternal twins. Also, older women are more likely to take fertility drugs or use other fertility technologies like in vitro fertilization to conceive. A family history of twins also makes multiples more likely. For more information on age-related hormones and other risks of pregnancy read Women’s Health, Fitness and Shape magazines.

Fraternal or non-identical twins are the most common. Fraternal twins biologically occur when two separate eggs are fertilized by two different sperm. This results in each twin having his or her own placenta and amniotic sac. Genetically fraternal twins are no more alike each other than any other siblings and can be two girls, two boys or a boy and a girl.

Identical twins biologically occur when one fertilized egg splits and develops into two fetuses. These fetuses may share a placenta but usually has separate amniotic sacs. Identical twins are genetically identical.

Recently a handful of celebrities have given birth to twins: Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts and Marcia Cross. Actress-model Rebecca Romijn and her husband actor Jerry O’Connell just announced in People magazine they are expecting twins in the winter; Lisa Marie Presley also just announced she is expecting twins. Other celebrities who are parents are twins are Denzel Washington, Sean Combs and Cybill Shepherd. President and Mrs. Bush are the parents of twin daughters Barbara and Jenna Bush.

There are and have always been many famous twins in Hollywood. Often television and film production companies hire twin babies and children to share one role of a child character. The production companies do this so that child-labor laws, which require children to work shorter hours than adults, will not slow down production. Famously, twins Erin and Diane Murphy shared the role of “Tabitha” on the 1960s fantasy sitcom “Bewitched,” Lindsay and Sydney Greenbush shared the role of “Carrie” on the 1970s drama “Little House on the Prairie” and twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen shared the role of “Michelle” on the 1980s sitcom “Full House.” Many twins including the Olsens and Tia and Tamara Mowry have starred as twins in family movies and television shows.

Sometimes only one twin is famous. Some examples of this situation are race car driver Mario Andretti (brother Aldo), actress Scarlett Johanssson (brother Hunter), model Gisele Bundchen (fraternal sister Patricia), actor Vin Diesel (Paul), singer Alanis Morissette (Wade) and actress Jill Hennessy (Jacqueline). For more famous twins read People Magazine, People En Espanol, Star magazine and In Touch Weekly.

Every year in Twinsburg, Ohio the city celebrates “Twin Days” in celebration of twins. For the upcoming 2008 event, which will be the 33rd annual Twin Days, event planners are hoping for 3,000 sets of twins.

In a comedic nod to twins, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito paired up as twins in the 1988 movie called Twins. For more movies and television shows about twins or featuring twins read Entertainment Weekly, People magazine and O The Oprah Magazine.

Is our obsession with celebrity videos and culture going too far?

Some people in society look up to celebrities so much that it could give them neck strain. From Hollywood actors, musicians and sports stars, people idolize them, following their every move and treating them as divine beings.

Of course there is big business to be made from the rich and famous. Websites and magazines such as TMZ.com, CelebritySequence.com and Perez Hilton have all captured our attention with their celebrity videos and gossip columns.

It is becoming common place for stories about celebrities to take the headlines over other world events. We often think that our celebrity culture has been a modern phenomenon, but as far back as ancient Rome and Greece, people idolised members of the royal family and other members of nobility.

It is quite normal for people to compare themselves to others, but has this celebrity culture gone too far, and do we all really want to see this ubiquitous coverage celebrity videos and photos.

One school of thought is that our desire for discovering the dirty secrets of celebrities is a form of escapism from our own lives – especially if scandal is involved, then it somehow makes us feel better about ourselves. The Germans even have a word for this – they call it ‘Schadenfreude’ – taking pleasure from another persons misfortune.

The most common reason people give behind the celebrity culture is the desire to one day be famous too. It’s easy to understand why people would want this. Walking down the red carpet, being the centre of attention while surrounded by envious admirers, private jets, getting free meals at top restaurants and being adorned in the most fashionable and glamorous clothes.

What about those celebrities that we follow, what is it like to live on the receiving end of all this attention? The price of fame can be high. They are paraded in front of the rest of the world, having every small detail about their appearance and behaviour analysed by complete strangers. Personal privacy seems to become off limits as the paparazzi follow them everywhere. While most of us at some time will have to deal with the criticism from our friends and family, celebrities must endure the accusations of tabloid newspapers and magazines.

So what does this all mean? James Houran, a psychologist with the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine says, “We as a society are becoming overly preoccupied with celebrities and the fantasy images it evokes”. After surveying over six hundred people, James Houran’s team of researchers identified a psychiatric condition they have called ‘celebrity worship syndrome’. It’s an unhealthy interest in the lives of the rich and famous. According to the researchers, about a third of us have it to some degree. James Houran goes on to say, “Celebrities are no longer people who have special talents and attributes”. “Many celebrities are simply marketing products.”

Anthropologist Francisco Gil-White from the University of Pennsylvania said “Humans, unlike other species, obtain most of their information about the world from other humans.” He goes on to say, “We were selected not only to rank successful individuals highly and to prefer them as models, but also to kiss up to them in order to make them prefer us as interactional partners.”

Duane Bryers’ “Hilda” — The First Illustrated Plus Size Pin Up Girl

The Pin Up Girl

Before we talk about the curvy, swervy, plus-size-bikini-clad Hilda, the stage is going to be set with a little history of the pin up girl. I’ll take you back in time now, with a short story about a few of the most talented and popular Pin Up illustrators in American history.

Earl Christy, (1883-1961)
We’ll begin with the prolific Earl Christy, who’s porcelain-doll-like illustrations appeared on everything from Hollywood magazine covers and commercial advertisements to sheet music and postcards. His work can be found going back as early as 1906. His movie posters and covers he painted for “Photoplay” and other Hollywood magazines are now valuable collector items.

Earl Moran (1893-1984)
Earl Moran’s artistic genius appeared on everything from Sears and Roebuck catalogs to Life magazine and millions of Brown and Bigelow Calendars. How he’s remembered most is through his pin ups. Moran’s stunningly rendered pastel “visions” offer more situational variety than any other major illustrator. Of his most enduring legacies are his 1940s paintings of a breathtaking young model named Norma Jean Baker. He painted more images of her than any other artist.

Rolf Armstrong (1889-1960)
Rolf Armstrong was another famous Brown and Bigelow calendar artist. After arriving home from a trip to France in 1919, he opened a studio in Greenwich Village where he painted the Ziegfeld Folly girls. Later, while in Hollywood, all the great stars of the era posed for him. Popular actresses like Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn were all painted by him. He even talked Boris Karloff into posing for him on the set of the original “Frankenstein”.

He refused to work from photographs and was always on the quest for the perfect model. When asked why he preferred a live model over a photograph, he said, “I want the living person in front of me. As I look at her again and again and again while I work, I get a thousand fresh, vivid impressions… all the glow, exuberance, and spontaneous joy that leaps from a young and happy heart.”

Armstrong’s pastel pin ups of his idealized, scantily clad,”girl next door” have a distinctive, luminous and shimmering quality to them. His paintings of healthy, nubile young women are some of the most memorable of all the famous illustrators. He was truly a man of rarefied talent.

George Petty (1894-1975)
The Pin Up finally exploded into the popular culture with Esquire Magazine’s introduction of s”Petty Girl” in 1933. Slender, flirtatious and extremely shapely, the Petty Girl became an American institution, capturing our hearts and minds for more than twenty years. From 1933 to 1956, her images were seen in tens of millions of places; every where from magazines and billboards to playing cards and match books, even aircraft “nose art” in WWII. In 1950, she was made into a movie starring Robert Cummings and Elsa Lanchester.

Gil Elvgren (1914-1980)
No pin up gallery is complete without displaying the breathtaking talent of Gil Elvgren. His enchanting, dreamy renderings of the nubile female form cannot be eclipsed in genius by any other artist. He was sublimely talented! A student of the Minneapolis Art Institute, he liked to paint girls who were new to the modeling business. He believed the ideal pin up was a girl with
a fifteen year old face on a twenty year old body, so he combined the two. During the forty two years spanning 1930-1972, he produced over five hundred paintings of beautiful young women, nearly all painted on oil and canvas. Today, his fully developed, finished works of art are second only in value to the paintings of Alberto Vargas.

Alberto Vargas (1896-1982)
The most prolific and famous glamor illustrator of all time is Alberto Vargas. The son of Max Vargas, a famous and talented photographer in his own right, Alberto learned to airbrush from his father before he was a teen. Most don’t realize he was actually born in Peru, and didn’t come to the US until 1916. He arrived on Ellis Island via Europe, where he had been since 1911. While there, he had studied in both Geneva and Zurich, and by the time had made his way here, he was already a gifted talent coming into bloom. Within three years he had hung his own shingle and was painting store fronts and window displays for New York City merchants.

One warm afternoon in May 1916, while painting a window display for a downtown merchant, he was approached by a employee of the Ziegfeld Follies and asked to show his work to the great Ziegfeld himself. Within forty eight hours, he was commissioned to paint 12 portraits of the leading stars of the 1919 season of the Ziegfeld Follies. They were for the lobby of the New Amsterdam Theatre.

From that first commission on, Alberto Vargas was an artist in high demand.

He painted every major star of the Ziegfeld Follies and later major Hollywood stars like Betty Grable, Jane Russell, Ann Sheridan, Ava Gardner Linda Darnell, Marlene Dietrich, Loretta Young, and even Marilyn Monroe all posed for him.

In 1940 he replaced the great George Petty at Esquire magazine and by 1945 was the most famous glamor illustrator in the world.

Baby boomers all know him as the creator of Playboy Magazine’s Vargas Girl. He painted over 150 of his Vargas Girl masterpieces for Playboy.

He was married over forty years to the love of his life, Anna Mae Clift. When she passed away in 1974, he lost most of his creative drive and worked just a few more times doing The Cars “Candy O” album cover and two album covers for Bernadette Peters. He passed away in Los Angeles in December, 1982.

Now, the reason this article was written…to talk about the most shapely, wondrously round, perfectly proportioned, plus size, pear shaped beauty in Pin Up girl history: Duane Bryers’ “Hilda”

One night, while prowling “Google Images” for curvaceous content, I found myself at Les Toil’s Big Beautiful Pin Up Gallery. I clicked through and followed his fun and curiously titled links looking for the well-nourished, feminine imagery I had started out that night looking for.

After I got done admiring Les’ talent, I went back to his homepage and clicked on a cheerful teal and yellow banner with the name “Hilda” written across it. I clicked on it, not prepared at all for what I was about to see.

As soon as the page opened, I stopped and looked in wonder. It was one of those moments when you’re seeing something with which you’re completely taken; the world around you seems to disappear, and everything goes completely silent as your focus narrows, taking in what’s in front of you.

Discovering Hilda was like discovering lost treasure. I recognized her right away. I remembered her as a perfect likeness of what I had for years idealized in the feminine form; round, soft, pear-shaped, plump, and shapely to the extreme.

If one’s natural male instinct is to respond to the rounder, softer, more generously proportioned woman, you will understand why there is so much to like about her. From her long, soft legs, girlish face, plump, inviting arms, to her hips, round and wide, you see a vision of femininity forming in front of you. Add to all that her ample, well-developed breasts, soft, yielding tummy and glorious hip-waist ratio, and you discover she is an ideal example of full-figure perfection. The perfect plus size, pear-shaped,
nubile beauty.

Unlike the stick-thin, female icons so popular today, Hilda has not one angular feature. She sublimely embodies the old fashioned womanly ideals of “round and soft”. She is feminine to the nth degree.

Duane Bryers was the first illustrator to use plus size models as subjects in his pin up art. Sometimes he didn’t use a model at all and painted from memory or fantasy. A feat, according to pin up artist Les Toil, “most impressive!”

“Hilda” is owned by Brown and Bigelow

This article was made possible through research from various sources on the web including Google images, The Pin Up Files, and the Hilda page of Les Toil’s Big Beautiful Pin Up Gallery.

How to Budget for Owning a Magazine

Saying you want to own and run your own magazine is the easy part. Finding writers who want to write for a magazine? Not difficult, although finding good writers may be a challenge. Looking up printers to print a magazine is pretty simple. Just ask other magazine publishers who they use. But the funds and distribution deals for owning a magazine? That’s where most magazines sink or swim.

Instructions

  1. Research pricing for the amount of money needed to print the magazines you want to sell or freely distribute. Figure in the following: magazines that will end up in a store on consignment, magazines that will be mailed out in hopes of bigger deals, magazines your street team will pass out to introduce the publication to its audience, and enough magazines to fulfill subscriptions. Also factor in emergency copies for magazines lost in the mail.Some printing companies accommodate minimum print runs in the thousands, others in the hundreds. Very few will print a magazine on demand. Print-on-demand (POD) companies usually charge higher prices because of machine, ink and assembly costs.
  2. Set aside money for your writers. Consider working with writers who understand that a start-up cannot pay writers. Quality writers who will work for free may be difficult to keep. Find people who believe in your magazine, instead of those who want fame or prestige. Don’t hesitate to weed out writers with an “I’m not getting paid anyway” attitude. College students and internship-seekers may work for free because they can gain credit hours and experience, or a full-time job when your magazines blows up. Make sure to thank your loyal writers and make them feel appreciated.
  3. Save your profits. If you’ve budgeted correctly, you should be able to use your expense money to pay for the regular day-to-day shuffle. Only use profit money for events not previously planned for, such as a release party. (Some magazines throw release parties, others don’t.) Seek out companies or locations willing to work with you for events that could help your magazine.
  4. Calculate shipping expenses. The weight of extra magazines is not cheap. Get this rate from the printer. Maybe you’re willing to pick up the magazines from your local printer or maybe you’ll have them delivered, but the shipping costs for subscribers still has to be accounted for.
  5. Do not sign any contracts until you have seen how the first print run is handled. You may experience last-minute issues with your printer—the company doesn’t have the correct number of magazines out at the right time, it refuses to fix typos, or you have paper and ink issues. A consumer doesn’t care about how your printer’s wife went into labor or why it’s not your fault that page 14 is missing. She paid for her magazine and she wants it in the most professional and timely manner. If a printer refuses to print a magazine without a contract, check out the competition. Confident printers should have no problem with a trial run, especially if you pay ahead of time.

How to Sell Magazine Articles

A freelance magazine writer is a much sought-after position, and for many, it seems like an impossible task. There are things you can do, however, that can make it easier to pitch the right stories to the right places and sell magazine articles.

How to Sell Photos to Magazines

Instructions

  1. Go to the magazine’s website to find out about their contributor’s guidelines. This gives you information on how to pitch to that magazine and what they are looking for.
  2. Look at their editorial calendar. This can give you tips and ideas about when to pitch certain editorial essays to that particular magazine.
  3. Read the magazine thoroughly. You can only sell magazine articles to a particular magazine when you have a good grasp on who they are selling to, the voice of the magazine and the target age of the magazine.
  4. Research some lesser known magazines for your first and second time around. The huge glossy magazines pay well, but they rarely take a chance on an inexperienced newcomer.
  5. Investigate the bylines of the magazine articles. If the names match those staff members listed in the front of the magazine, then the magazine uses few freelancers. The magazine that has a various list of names probably uses freelance writers a lot.
  6. Pitch articles to the right magazine, and use every query letter to sell your story idea and yourself. Be sure to use the same style, either formal or informal, in your query letter, and be sure to keep track of who you send what idea to. Most magazines do not wish to have the same article pitched to them and to two others at the same time.
  7. Check up on the magazines you are interested in writing for, and see if they accept articles in advance. For instance, some magazines start looking for articles about Christmas while most people are sunning themselves on summer vacation. Keep this in mind, and you can sell magazine articles.

How to Write a Travel Article

Travel writing is a great way to combine the love of travel and the love of Write a Travel Articlewriting into a lucrative and rewarding career. Travel writing isn’t rocket science, but it can be a tricky door to break into, and you’ll need to follow some simple guidelines in order to produce a story that publishers will want to run. Travel writing is a little bit of journalism mixed with journaling, topped off with useful information about locations. The best part about travel writing is being able to create your own voice and be honest about the things you’re doing, which is wholly separate from the unbiased rules of reporting.

Instructions

  1. Determine your audience. Your audience will determine the final article you produce and should be who you have in mind during your experience. Is this for a leisure travel magazine, a college newspaper or an online travel website? Adult travel magazines will likely need a more mature voice and a more upscale itinerary, while college newspapers are looking for more affordable, backpacker-style travel advice. Wherever you plan to publish, do your research by reading plenty of back issues and learning the voice and style of your publication.
  2. Be prepared. Always carry a pen and notebook with you to make important notes and to help remember obscure events. Be sure to include street names, prices for museums and other sites and information on how to get from place to place. Use your personal experience as a guide for what readers need to know. Answer the questions that you had. Keep in mind when you got lost and various things you did wrong, so you don’t allow your reader to make the same mistakes.
  3. Take pictures. You should always have a camera with your when traveling to record the things you are seeing and places you are visiting, if for no one else, but yourself. This will help you to remember things you might have forgotten and could give you an opportunity to publish them with your article. Most travel magazines will use professional photos, but you never know when someone might ask to use yours.
  4. Research your location. Travel articles combine a personal travel story together with a knowledge of the place being visited, so you’ll need to know the important facts and history of the place your are visiting and include them in the article. Add a few historical highlights to the tale of your personal journey to create a cyclical and complete travel article.
  5. Say something new. This is the biggest challenge when it comes to travel writing. There are a multitude of articles covering every location, monument, restaurant and local hangout across the globe, so it’s important that your article provide new information about the place you are visiting. Talk to the locals and try to discover the secret or obscure places that have been relatively untouched by travelers and journalists. You must be willing to experience things rather than merely observe them. Try an unusual cuisine, dance the local dance and get involved in the things around you.
  6. Create a fresh voice. Don’t be afraid to be kitschy, funny or brutally honest in your writing. Travelers look to travel articles as a source and guide for their next trip, so if you’re not honest about a place you visited, people won’t trust that you know what you’re talking about. Everyone has different travel tastes, but there are people out there who have similar tastes to you. Write for them.
  7. Write the facts. Your first draft should get the basic details and important information about the specific journey. Don’t worry if the first draft is dry and bit boring because you’ll edit it later. Make sure you cover all the important information about the location, such as if and when there is a daily siesta, how late banks are open and if you can change money on Sundays. Your readers should be able to follow in your footsteps, so provide addresses and easy-to-follow directions when necessary.
  8. Give your article a kick. Once you have your facts and important information, you’ll want to make your story come alive. Use metaphors and descriptive language to liven it up. If you’re in a foreign country, talk about the local flavor, throw in a few common phrases and try using quotes from other travelers or from books of poetry that were written on the places you’re visiting. The best writer will be able to capture the audience by their writing alone, no matter how dry the subject matter.
  9. Be honest, personal and funny. Tell the reader what you liked or disliked about the location and why. Tell the funny stories and mishaps. People fight change, and traveling forces people to try new things and adjust their comfortable lifestyles, which makes for interesting travel stories. Tell your readers about those funny incidences that occurred on your journey, and they won’t be so surprised when something similar happens to them. People like to identify with others, especially in their travel experiences, so telling your personal story is a great way to connect with your audience.
  10. Edit your work. The last thing you need is to turn in a mediocre article filled with punctuation and grammar mistakes. Also be sure to fact check all of your information to be sure that you have correct addresses, museum prices and local currency. Be extra careful where historical information is concerned. If you’re unsure about anything, don’t include it in the piece.

How Do Celebrities Influence People?

In a society that largely obsesses about entertainment and celebrity culture, celebrities can have a powerful impact on a person's life. From fashion trends to political views, the attractiveness of a celebrity's lifestyle can influence people's beliefs, interests and behaviors. This obsession with celebrity culture often starts at an early age. Many children and teens are infatuated with young, pop-culture icons. They think of celebrities as role models and may choose to imitate them

History

  • Some historians credit the rise of mass celebrity culture in America to the early 20th century. Between 1900 and 1929, the entertainment industry in New York was flourishing with different forms of entertainment, including opera, vaudeville, radio and film. Many Americans became infatuated with celebrities and contributed to a new, consumer-based culture that continues today.

Fashion

  • The influence of chic fashion can be traced back to the 17th century, and it's often credited to Louis XIV and his obsession with glamorous and elegant clothing. Today, celebrities have become the trendsetters in fashion. From red carpet award shows to celebrity gossip magazines, media coverage of “who” a celebrity is wearing can influence a person's decision to buy the latest designer clothing and accessories.

Body Image

  • The entertainment industry often pressures celebrities–especially actresses–to look thin. Since some people look to celebrities as role models, this can have a severe impact on societal perceptions of body image. Some celebrities maintain their body images through extreme measures, including plastic surgery and eating disorders. Though celebrities do not directly cause people to seek out these extreme measures, the National Eating Disorder Association says that the media impacts the ways people define ideas of body image.

Politics

  • Through the media, celebrities have the ability to affect people's interests in political parties or politicians. One of the most recent, high-profiled celebrity endorsements was Oprah Winfrey's endorsement of Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. Though it's unclear exactly how influential Winfrey's endorsement was on the race, a USA Today poll showed that 8 percent of the adults who participated in the poll were more likely to vote for Obama because of Winfrey's backing.

Environmentalism

  • Many environmentally conscience topics, such as global warming, have received publicity because of celebrities. Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks are strong believers in living a “green” lifestyle. These celebrities have often vocalized support for “going green,” and have endorsed hybrid cars, such as the Toyota Prius. Their advocacy for environmentalism can influence people in adopting a more eco-friendly lifestyle, while strengthening the environmental movement.

 

Impact of Celebrity Magazines on Hollywood

http://photos.demandstudios.com/getty/article/146/64/200363044-001_XS.jpg

There has always been attention given to the activities of various celebrities. In recent years, celebrity news has become more popular. This trend has paved the way for more celebrity magazines to emerge in order to satisfy the public’s appetite for celebrity gossip. However, although celebrity magazines have had an impact on the magazine world, the magazines have also had an impact on Hollywood as well.

With the dramatic increase in attention the celebrity magazines provide, there has been both positive and negative effects in Hollywood. For instance, in a positive development, there has been a giant push for celebrities to promote charities and other organizations that strive to benefit humankind and the world at large. This promotion is done often through the celebrity magazines. When one of these stories is picked up by the gossip magazines, millions of people are made aware of these causes and can contribute to these benevolent organizations. Putting pressure on major organizations to enact change is something positive that celebrity magazines have done. Also, due to the fact that celebrities have recognizable names and therefore powerful voices, what celebrities say and the organizations that they support receive an increase in attention through celebrity magazines and other venues.

It is important to remember, however, that celebrity magazines are for entertainment. In many cases, no matter what magazines say about celebrities, the individuals that they are covering are sometimes people who do not want the hype. Obviously, these artists and power-brokers are in the public eye, but, in the end, many are just hardworking individuals who are doing what they love to do, and are not looking for extra attention. Nowadays, with so many celebrity magazines on the market, more reporters and photographers than ever before are fighting for stories and photos. This can be distracting to those that simply want to work in Hollywood or elsewhere, and in the worst cases, can affect the quality of their work. .

Consequently, the more celebrity magazines that are available to the public means more pages that are needed to be filled with celebrity gossip. The various magazines require stories and pictures to satisfy their readership. What this leads to, ultimately, is that each magazine must develop an angle to attract the reader, and sometimes these angles might not be accurate, or even an obvious lie. Some couples claim that the constant pressure from the celebrity magazines is what ultimately led to their breakups, and some claim that by doing these things out in public where everyone can see them, the couples themselves have allowed the magazines to have an impact on what they are doing and where they are going as a couple. This can be very entertaining for readers, but perhaps damaging to the stars’ career. Managing these situations from a public relations point of view is crucial to the stars maintaining a positive image.
There are stars, however, which use this spotlight to increase their status. The old adage, “there’s no such thing as bad press” is taken advantage of on a weekly basis. Publicity stunts are more common, as is outrageous behavior. Due to the broad spotlight that celebrity magazines cast, it has become difficult to determine whether or not a star’s behavior is genuine, or fabricated to get attention. Perhaps an artist wants attention that their roles or their records are not getting them; they can do something outrageous and get the coverage. Also, celebrities use the magazines to plug and promote the projects they are working on. A downside of this trend is that celebrity magazines pay handily for insider information, and some projects are leaked ahead of schedule. Many stars, actors in particular, feel that their believability in an on-screen role is compromised by the celebrity magazine’s focus on their personal lives. Clearly, the increase in popularity of celebrity magazines has become a force to be reckoned with in the Hollywood community.

Like many things, the impact on Hollywood from celebrity magazines has been both bad and good. For instance, there has been an upward trend in the amount of coverage that has been given to things that celebrities endorse and other organizations that celebrities feel are positive organizations. This coverage can only help those causes. Also, the magazines that talk about celebrities have a tendency to report on everything – and something that they are very good at doing is showing the nation at large that celebrities are just regular people. Because they are always going to be under scrutiny from the magazines, some celebrities try harder to project a positive image. The attention provided by celebrity magazines has engineered a general push in Hollywood for celebrities to stand as examples to the rest of the world. This has helped to provide more role models, as well. All of these things are a result of the celebrity magazines, and their current upward shift in popularity.

Commercial Photography – How to Shoot for Magazines

With the explosion of digital photography, it has created a lot of opportunities in photography that once were not available to anyone but professional photographers. This explosion of new photographers has helped to broaden the market for both publications and photographers themselves, creating new sources of images and new places to sell them. But as a new photographer it may seem challenging to get started so let’s take a look at the world of magazine photography.

The World of Magazines

Sure, there are plenty of magazines out there that deal primarily in celebrity gossip or trendy news. Since it’s not likely you will be booking Brad Pitt into your studio (or sneaking around outside his house), it’s important to remember that there are thousands of magazines out there that are all dedicated to pretty much everything else. There are magazines on cars, dogs, computers, fitness, home decor, cooking and so many others. These magazines are always on the market for relevant and useful images that fit their niche.

One way to think about it is that these magazines will always need images of their topics and are happy to pay for them. Dog magazines will always need good pictures of dogs, and are more than willing to pay for them.

How to Get Started

First, you should look for a niche that you find interesting. No matter what you love to take pictures of, there is probably a market for it somewhere. Once you’ve decided on a market, swing by your local bookstore and grab a few magazines off the rack. Be looking for the kind of photos that they use and think about if those are the kinds of pictures you could take. Make sure that you’re really honest with yourself at this stage because if you can’t shoot the kind of quality pictures that they’re using then you need to keep practicing before you start.

Once you’re ready, look through each magazine and find the photo editor or information on how to submit photos. You want to make sure that you understand the magazine’s guielines before you start otherwise your pictures will likely not be accepted. Once you have all the details nailed down, send in your photos. When you send in your photos, make sure to accompany them with a note or letter with a link to your portfolio.

It’s Time to Wait

Anytime you submit a photo to a magazine, plan to wait several weeks for a response. Magazines are a print media, and even if accepted your photographs will not show up for a few months. Additionally, it’s always best to only submit each photo to one publication at a time, this way you don’t run the risk of having to decline an offer because another editor has chosen to use your image.

Most magazines will note their usual wait time for a response, which can be anywhere between two and eight weeks. If after that time you still haven’t heard anything, then send a polite follow up message to the editor about your submission.

What’s so suprising about selling pictures to magazines is that the process is so easy. All you have to do is find it, shoot it and mail (plus a little waiting). Selling your photographs to a magazine may sound like a crazy idea, but once you get started making submissions, you’ll wish you would have started doing it sooner!

Help for Teens Obsessed With Celebrities

A vast difference exists between your teen looking up news on a celebrity and becoming obsessed with a celebrity. Unfortunately, in the U.S. celebrity-worship culture and thanks to their accessibility through social media, it’s easy for your teen to get caught up in the obsession with someone famous. By pointing your teen toward healthy influences and explaining the differences between real and staged emotions and traits, you can give your teen a better perspective on celebrities.

Celeb Worship
We live in a culture where celebrities are revered, so it’s only natural for teens to see celebrities as people to look up to. Unfortunately, teens don’t always know the line between admiration and obsession. And, according to an article at Psychologytoday.com, teens who feel lonely or out-of-place are even more likely to latch onto and worship a celebrity. Teens have three basic types of celebrity worship. The first is a personal connection — your teen is obsessed with a star because she feels that celebrity understands or is like her. The second type is purely social and entertainment-based; your teen likes a celebrity because of her abilities. Finally, a pathological connection — where your teen entertains fantasies involving a star — can be one of the most dangerous.

Dangers
While a mild fascination with a particular celeb is probably harmless, when your teen starts obsessing over or worshiping someone famous, it can get out of hand. If your teen has fantasies where he meets and forms a relationship with a certain celebrity, it can hurt his ego and self-esteem when that fantasy never happens. What’s more, a teen can start emulating a celebrity’s behavior, which might not be acceptable in your eyes. Of course, a severe occupation with checking up on a celebrity — reading magazines, checking Twitter feeds, catching up on Instagram — can all reduce or even replace your teen’s time for actual social activities. Body image can also be called into question if your teen obsesses over the looks of a certain celebrity.

Prevention Tactics
If you don’t want to deal with celebrity obsession as a parent, talk to your teen. If you notice that she has posters in her room or she’s poring over a magazine, ask why she chose that particular celebrity to read about or hang over her bed. Ask what she admires about that star and you’ll be able talk about the smoke and mirrors behind celebrity life. If she loves the way her favorite singer looks, talk about photo editing and the work that goes behind looking that way. Remind your teen that celebrities are normal people and help her focus on the positive traits of the celebrity, like one that has a history of animal activism or an actress who speaks out against eating disorders.

How to Deal
If your teen already nurses a full-fledged obsession with a specific star, he might be looking for role models in his life. Finding a mentor might be able to redirect your teen’s path. Another way to help him get past his obsession is to help your teen choose a new way to occupy his time, according to DrPhil.com. Without the time devoted to reading magazines, Internet articles and status updates, your teen might find a way to be fulfilled without his celebrity obsession.

How to Get a Traveling Photography Job

For people who are passionate about taking pictures, working as a photographer can be a dream job. Adding the chance to travel for your job can make it even better. Traveling and taking pictures simultaneously is a great way to meet people and see new places. Not every photographer job requires travel, but if you want to find a photography job that has travel adventures, there are plenty of avenues to explore.

Take your camera on the road by finding a photography job that requires travel

Instructions

  1. Search career networking sites such as LinkedIn if you want to find a photography job that requires travel. You must first join the free LinkedIn membership site. Once you join and enter the site, simply click on the jobs link at the top of the page and enter your parameters. For a photography job that required travel, you could enter the job title “photographer” and enter “travel” in the keywords section.
  2. Check the job boards on the Internet for photography jobs that require travel. Sites like Indeed.com pull job listings from many other websites; therefore, you only check one site to see jobs that are posted on many other job boards. Simply enter your job title and keywords into the search feature and you can even narrow your choices by inputting the zip code where you wish to work.

    Once your search results come up, you can see listings of applicable job titles, companies that are hiring, cities within the U.S. that have relevant positions and even a breakdown of what organizations are paying for photographers who can travel for their jobs.

  3. Consider starting small as a photography assistant for a magazine. This way, you can get experience on sets working with bona fide photographers. Travel is often required to various locations and shoots; therefore, you will be working and traveling simultaneously if you find the right gig. This can also open many doors for a photographer as you develop your skill set working on a shoot first-hand.
  4. Freelancing is an excellent option for the experienced photographer who has a portfolio of his work. Traveling is generally required for the top-echelon freelancers. Many serious freelancers contract with book publishers or travel websites who purchase their photographs.
  5. Check with school portrait photography companies such as Lifetouch. These companies take school pictures nationally and while you may not get to travel from state-to-state, you can at least travel around your home state and take school pictures. Opportunities may also be available to photograph youth sports teams through these companies as well, and part-time weekend traveling photography careers may be available.

Collecting Celebrity Memorabilia For Profit

Collecting celebrity memorabilia is fun, but it can also be very profitable. Here’s how you can cash in from celebrity collectibles without spending a lot of money.

Rare autographs and photos are hard to find. You may get lucky and run across a genuine article at a garage sale or flea market, but that is highly unlikely. Most people who have an authentic celebrity item know it, and won’t be selling it at a yard sale.

If you really want to expand or start your collection without breaking the bank, online auctions are the answer. You can browse through the items at your own leisure and set your own budget. Even do a little research on the side if need be. There are literally thousands of items for sale right now.

The great thing about collecting celebrity memorabilia is that celebrities are always in the spotlight. Every move they make is on camera, in magazines and on the internet. When a celebrity does something outrageous or newsworthy, they suddenly become the most popular at the moment. That’s where collecting memorabilia starts to pay off. If you happen to have a collectible of that star, that is the time to sell. Look what happens when someone famous makes the headlines. Everybody wants a piece of the action. Same with celebrities that have untimely deaths. It’s sad to say, but suddenly their items become worth more now than when they were alive.

There is some extremely high priced memorabilia out there. Memorabilia from famous legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and John Wayne will always be rare and too expensive for the average collector, but some of the items from the stars of today can be bought quite reasonably.

So start your celebrity memorabilia collection now while you can get some great bargains. Then just sit back and wait for something to happen. It always does. That will be the time to sell your item for nice profit.

Create Online digital magazine To Promote Your Business In A Better Way

The reasons behind calling them better are many, for instance, they can be distributed to a large number of audiences easily and cheaply and they are easy to create.

To create online digital magazine, you would require the help of a good emag software. An emag maker software would assist you to transform PDF files into a flash flipbook.

Hollywood Celebrities Opt for Cosmetic Dentistry

Hollywood A-Lister’s Still Need a Little Help from Their Neighborhood Cosmetic Dentists

With so much film, media, and magazine exposure these days, Hollywood celebrities are zero-ing in on making every aspect of their physical exterior an image of perfection. Their smiles are certainly no exception!

Advances in technology over the past years have allowed dentists to create flawless grins for people, while still looking and feeling natural. These celebrity smiles can range from a few thousand dollars for a minor adjustment, to the extreme makeover cases of $50,000 or more for their toothy treasures.

And while some celebrities use their signature snaggle-teeth to their advantage, in most cases their new cosmetic dental work is a vast improvement as they jolt into super stardom. Here are a few examples of some celebrities that had smile makeovers:

(1) Elliot Yamin

Smile Makeover Method: Porcelain Veneers

This past American Idol contestant was once known for two things. An amazing voice, and terrible teeth. Now, with the help of cosmetic dentistry and over $50,000 in porcelain veneers, his career has soared into an oblivion of success. Now, when we see him in his videos and performances, his fabulous voice is accompanied by a celebrity smile.

(2) Miley Cyrus

Smile Makeover Method: Porcelain Veneers

This “Hannah Montana” superstar is idolized by kids and their parents alike. She is considered the next generation of media moguls that is taking our world by storm. Once she began gaining popularity in her show and concerts, she opted to make the switch to a more sightly smile. She is believed to have gotten veneers and a surgery to elongate the teeth and fix the “gummy smile” look.

(3) George Clooney

Smile Makeover Method: Porcelain Veneers, Crowns, and Crown Lengthening

This self-proclaimed lifelong bachelor once made a joke about getting surgery done on his eyes to make him look younger. It seems like his teeth were a more immediate concern for both aesthetic and physical reasons. As quoted by Dr. Abenaim (starmagazine.com), he believes that Clooney was a tooth grinder which was one cause for the actor to seek a cosmetic change. Aside from the veneers, the Dr. also suggests that Clooney had crown lengthening surgery, a surgical procedure done that brings the gumline up to expose more teeth. This work is estimated at anywhere from $30,000-35,000. Now we love you even more Georgie!

(4) Keith Urban

Smile Makeover Method: Porcelain Veneers

Before his days of super stardom and being the arm candy for gorgeous wife Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban’s teeth were far from perfect. Doctor’s believe that Urban had porcelain veneers placed over his choppers to create a far more pleasing effect. He had what dentist’s refer to a diastema, or large space between his teeth. While the veneers have improved his look, his dentist did a good job creating a natural look and left a little signature gap in the front.

(5) Katherine Heigl

Smile Makeover Method: Invisalign®

When it came to looking beautiful for her on screen wedding in 27 Dresses, Katherine Heigl didn’t need to do much. For her own wedding, Heigl complained that she did not want to wed with crooked teeth. She decided to opt for Invisalign, a series of clear, removable aligners that are used as an alternative to traditional metal braces. As of April 2008, 730,000 patients have completed, or are currently in Invisalign treatment.

Why Do People Become Obsessed With Celebrities?

You only have to step into a local shop and look at the rows and rows of glossy magazines to see that we are a nation that is obsessed with celebrity. Heat magazine is one of the biggest selling magazines in the UK with a circulation of over half a million, and this is only one of a long list of celebrity gossip magazines that is produced each week.

The title of the ultimate British celebrity magazine should probably go to Ok! magazine. It is a favourite of many celebrities who will turn to the magazine to reveal any revelations or scandal in their lives. Ok! covers more celebrity weddings, pregnancies and engagements than any other magazines. Most celebrities will use Ok! as a platform to promote something good in their lives and it is well known that they will receive a hefty payment in return. Ok! magazine was first published in 1993 and since then there has been a huge influx in rival magazines all claiming to be the first port of call for inside celebrity gossip.

But what is it about celebrity that fascinates us so much? In my opinion there is more than one reason. For some people it is simply a case of lifestyle envy.  Celebrities appear to have it all: money, looks, a fabulous lifestyle and worldwide recognition. They seem to live a magical lifestyle that some of us aspire to achieve. Celebrities have become a new form of god figure and we allow ourselves to fantasise that our lives could one day be like theirs. Some people even feel that proximity to celebrities will elevate them from a normal person to celebrity status. Or perhaps they think that maybe they can befriend a rich celeb and that they will share some of their wealth with them? Either way this is a pretty deluded state of mind. It is very unlikely that a celebrity will allow an average Joe to ride on the coat tails of his or her success.

Another reason for our celebrity obsession is our natural human instinct to be interested in other human beings. Essentially we are pretty nosy creatures. We like to hear what is going on in the lives of people around us. This becomes heightened when directed at the world of celebrity as their lives are so different and more extravagant than ours. We are naturally fascinated by the unknown and unfamiliar. However, this curiosity can be a double-edged sword. We are fascinated by the seemingly perfect lives of celebrities but at the same time we are always waiting for something to go wrong.

We do not always want to hear how well someone is doing and it is a well known fact that scandal always sells more than good news. Sometimes it takes someone else’s bad news to make us feel better about our lives. Of course this seems a twisted logic but it is a fact, and the magazine circulation numbers back this up. People are much more likely to want to read about a married footballer’s sleazy affair with a page three model than the good news that a pop star is set to break America. Just look at the current Cheryl and Ashley Cole situation. The bottom line is: scandal sells.

Each week the media churn out pictures of flawless celebrities that have been air-brushed thus setting an unrealistic goal for the likes of you and me. This is why when a celeb is spotted without her makeup we feel better because they are instantly put on a level with the average person. An element of normality is created. We rejoice in seeing a celeb looking bad because it makes us feel better about our bad hair days and so-called fat days. `

A way of feeling closer to our favourite celebrities and idols is to collect memorabilia associated with them. If we own a piece of signed memorabilia it is as if we have some sort of connection or are paying homage to them in some sense. Avid fans often keep large collections of items associated with a certain celebrity and invest a certain amount of emotion into their collection. If you or someone close to you is looking to add to their collection or perhaps start a collection of treasured articles then visit Genuine Memorabilia’s online website. The company boasts a collection of over 6,000 signed articles to choose from. It includes memorabilia from the world of sport, film, rock and pop, theatre and television.

Body wraps have been offered for years by health spas, fitness spas and franchised facilities. Some reported spending as much as $150 for this treatment. After a wrap, spa clients have reported that their skin felt softer, their skin felt tighter,experienced a diminished appearance of cellulite and even a loss of inches.

Career Tips for Aspiring Models

Dealing with rejections:

Many would-be models dream of having a magical fairytale entrance into the modeling world with an incredibly fast rise to stardom and the high life. When you get rejected for your first time it might feel crushing and hopeless. My advice to you is to not give up. Talk to successful models and ask them how many times they have had the agency door shut in their face. I have personally witnessed models that were passed over by their small hometown agency to go on to become successes and are now represented by a top New York agency. Keep knocking on doors and eventually one will open for you. If rejected the first time it’s a good idea to hit even the same agencies up again after a few months. It’s about timing. You never know, your first rejection could be just because the agent was having a bad day or possibly they already had someone who fit your style already at that time. Things change in 3 -6 month so it will pay off to have persistence and a positive attitude.

Professionalism:

To be a professional model one must act accordingly, in many photo shoot situations you will have to deal with cold or uncomfortable weather conditions, squeeze into ridiculously tight fitting outfits, or balance on sky high heels. Try your best to suck it up for the shoot. Of course don’t put yourself in any physical danger or harsh discomfort but most professional models can get though any photo shoot without complaining. Once you attain the supermodel status then feel free to throw a childish fit or act like a super start. Until you can honestly say you are super model, keep a professional attitude, it will pay off in the long run. Never take anything personally at a photo shoot. If you get a strange attitude from someone at the shoot it is probably because they are stressed or not confident in their own skills. Not to say to put up with crap from people, just save it until the shoot is over and let your agent or the photographer know. You won’t gain anything from blowing up on set.

Health:

Eat Healthy foods and drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated. Doing cardio exercises will give you photo shoot stamina so you can stay fresh for longer. Don’t get the tattoo, just don’t do it, you will regret it or lose jobs because of it, sure there is Photoshop but people will still see it as a detriment. If you are sick or hung over avoid at all costs staggering onto a set looking tired a dreary for a terrible first impression. If you do happen to be hung over or slightly sick on your shoot day, pull yourself together just before entering the studio or location and burst onto the scene with energy, fake it for about 3 min while you meet everyone then escape to the makeup chair where you can relax for a while, sip a latte and get into character (and get make up to cover up your sins from the previous evening).

Attitude and perspective:

One thing to remember when considering your career as a model is remember your role as a model is such: a commodity whose sole purpose is to aid in selling a product, mood or image. People pay you (your agent) money because they want to make money so try to see it from the client’s perspective. Make sure you know what the art director or photographer is going for and do your best to deliver. Good news travels fast (so does bad news). Market yourself as an outgoing model who loves to pose and work the camera. Word will spread in the fashion and photography circles.

Keep Shooting

Always keep in practice and continue to grow as a model. Find out what angles work for you and which are weaker. Build your relationship with the camera until you can master any mood or convey any feeling though your posture and expression. Read the top fashion magazines and learn from the poses (especially the ones in the advertisements in first 20 pages of the magazine) Keep shooting with different photographers to get to know different shooting styles. Get out there and be a part of the fashion and photography scene, you never know who you will meet at an industry party.

Ok have fun and good luck!!!

How to Become a Fashion Designer to Celebrities

For some designers, creating clothing that celebrities wear is the pinnacle of success. What propels a great fashion designer to this level of recognition and stardom is not simply based on core talent alone but also on exceptional drive, ambition and solid marketing communication skills. Becoming a renowned fashion designer to celebrities requires design know-how coupled with profound business acumen.

Things You’ll Need

  •  Organized portfolio of all your designs
  •  Professional digital camera
  •  Laptop
  • Smart phone
  • Rolodex or book of fashion contacts
  •  Personal business cards

Instructions

  1. Determine your personal fashion niche. Take a moment to review your fashion designs, analyzing the key trends and overall vision behind your work. This process will help you define your design style or the signature looks that will make your work stand out from other fashion designers.
  2. Update your knowledge of current trends and celebrity styles. Sift through fashion magazines and websites to keep yourself on point with what’s trendy now and what will be the trends for the next season. Review other designer collections to see which pieces were successful hits and what celebrities were photographed wearing. Scour celebrity magazines and websites like WhoWhatWear.com to check out each person’s fashion style, while pinpointing the kinds of celebrities you wish to dress. The more “celebrity fashion homework” you do, the better.
  3. Build connections with buyers from boutiques and department stores where your favorite celebrities love to shop. Contact the key people in fashion merchandising and gain as much opportunity as you can in showcasing your portfolio of tear sheets in hopes that your pieces will be picked up by buyers. If possible, compose professional look books of your collections. (Creating a look book requires a professional photographer, studio and models to help capture your work in the best light.)
  4. Market yourself and form relationships within the fashion industry. Attend as many fashion events as you can and introduce yourself to important editors, buyers, agents, fashion stylists and, most importantly, celebrity publicists in order to get your name out there; the closer you get to a celebrity’s entourage, the closer you’ll be to dressing one. Make sure to keep your portfolio with you when you attend these events and remember to distribute your business card. Acquire contact information, if those you meet are willing to provide it.
  5. Update your address book and phone contacts after each event and maintain your new and existing relationships within the fashion community. If you’re designing a new collection, or even thinking about one, be sure to relay your ideas to these people through email, alerting them of your progress.
  6. Acquire fashion agency or PR representation. Along with networking during events, the best way to reach the celebrity crowd is by having another distinguished company boost your name and image by managing and showcasing your collections. It’s not always easy to market yourself alone, but with the help of others in the fashion industry, your brand may eventually start ringing in the fashion ears of celebrities.
