Exploring being female (for that's what we are) in a world of media myths, publishing incompetence, and marketing madness -- as well as the female submission and subscription to those messages.

Finally, French ELLE has put out a "Spécial Rondes" aka Curvy Issue; plus-Size model Tara Lynn is on the cover of the issue released last Friday, March 26, 2010. (This is posted under both "Ass" and "Class" because while it's a fabulous start, it's like a century late -- and why not just include all shapes and sized in every issue?)

Today's Quick Thought: Marie Claire

Sometimes, my favorite images in Marie Claire are the little throw-away sidebars on the masthead page; this example is from the February 2010 issue.

Be On A More Mag Cover

Today, More magazine launched the More Beauty Search on More.com to find three readers who look and feel more beautiful than ever for a chance to be featured in the October 2010 issue and win $10,000:

"More focuses on the time in a woman's life when she feels in-charge and full of possibilities," says More Editor in Chief Lesley Jane Seymour. "We want to find women who embody these attributes and really get across – in words, photos and spirit – what it means to be a More woman."

To enter, women must upload a photo and a 150-word essay at www.more.com/beautysearch about why she feels that this is the most fabulous time of her life, and pay a non-refundable $25 processing fee. Women nationwide will vote online to choose the top 100. The winners will be chosen by the More editorial staff.

Three women will receive a first-class More experience including airfare to New York City, hotel accommodations and a spa day, lunch with More Editor in Chief Lesley Jane Seymour and a photo shoot for the October 2010 issue. One grand prize winner also receives $10,000. The two runners-up receive $5,000 each.

The contest, sponsored by Olay and Covergirl, runs through May 5, 2010.

PS I would have filed this under "class," except they charge a $25 fee to enter.

Heidi Klum's Head

In this month's Marie Claire, Heidi Klum is photoshopped to the point of ridiculousness -- a giant head and man-hands on suited-stick figure. Ugh.

UPDATE: This technically is the April issue of Marie Claire; sorry for any confusion!
