‘X’ IS FOR (E)XCITING VACATION WEAR!
Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘X’ is for a post I missed when abroad on business. So here are some uber-glamorous examples of vacation wear if you still need any ideas for your own trip! (Here in Andalucia, it touched 36C today so less is certainly more! Sincere apologies if, in your part of the world, it’s cold and/or raining!)These all form part of Carolina Herrera’s Resort Wear 2010 collection described by her as “very light, feminine and romantic” and mainly composed of, er, cocktail dresses. What do you think? Any styles appeal?
The last vacation wear item is not courtesy of Herrera but of Pamela Anderson who is known as a strict vegetarian of many years. She has done a new PETA campaign to convince people not to kill animals for fashion purposes. However, the ad campaign was banned in Montreal as it was too ‘sexist’ for local businessmen. As you can see, she’s photographed in a tiny bikini and her total body divided into separate parts similar to a butcher’s division of an animal’s carcass.)
When her permit was refused, she commented, “In a city that is known for it’s exotic dancing and for being progressive and edgy, how sad that a woman would be banned from using her own body in a political protest. In some parts of the world women are forced to cover their whole bodies with burqas- is that next? I didn’t think Canada would be so puritanical.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS SHE RIGHT TO PROMOTE HER BODY FOR POLITICAL PROTEST EVEN IF IT OFFENDS OTHERS? WOULD YOU DO THE SAME? AND SHOULD SHE “REFUDIATE” HER POLITICAL VIEWS?
AND WHAT ARE YOUR OWN VIEWS ABOUT THE BAN-THE-BURQA DEBATE?
Do tell me! And do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts @ Jenny Matlock ´s great site! See you again for Six Word Saturday!
