The biggest shock of Paris’s spring-summer 2014 fashion shows came on the otherwise calm and gentle Nina Ricci catwalk, when two topless activists from protest group Femen crashed the podium.
Grabbing a startled model making her way down the catwalk, they screamed “fashion fascism,” with words decrying the sexualization of the modeling industry written in make-up. One had “Fashion dictaterror” scrawled on her naked torso, the other “Model don’t go to brothel.”
One British model, Liverpool-born Hollie-May Saker, was caught in the middle, with the protesters brushing against her lamé-and-lace skirt.
“The next thing I just see half-naked women with black marker pen scrawled across their bare chests and that’s when she came at me….As she grabbed my arm she lifted my skirt exposing me – I pulled my arm back with such force that I landed a punch square on her nose,” Saker told the Echo.

So, to fight back against the sexualization of the modeling industry, these women assaulted a model and forcibly exposed her?
Protip: You’re not fighting a patriarchal system by assaulting women and exposing them against their will.
I have literally never heard of a positive thing done by Femen. Seriously. They need to stop. First the blatant Islamophobia, and now this? Really?
If your idea of feminism includes racist bullshit and attacking women who don’t conform to your exact image of a feminist, guess what? You’re a complete asshole and you’re misrepresenting feminism as a whole.
I *hate* Femen. Literally they are the reason feminism is viewed in a bad light. They’re the West Borough Baptist of feminism and I can’t stand it.
Ugh ugh ugh ugh. The fashion industry is absolutely plagued with shit but the models themselves are not the problem. Those women are professionals just trying to do their jobs. Jobs that they are often (shockingly) underpaid and under-protected for. The last thing they need to worry about are women seemingly ‘supporting’ them against sexualization by physically exposing them. Not only that, but Nina Ricci is hardly a designer who is exploiting women’s sexuality. Your idea of feminism is detracting from a woman’s art and livelihood by showboating? Femen can just go away.
Women attacking women for the sake of women.
they did it because they’re leader (a man) told them to which makes it even worse.
I’m just so freaking tired about this… I mean, how the bloody hell are can this women from Femen being called “feminist”?!? To me they’re stupid women, and this is a clearly reason of why this women are just morons. The definition of Feminism is “Social, political and economic EQUALITY of the sexes”, and in the modeling business we find women modeling men clothes, men modeling women clothes, we find heterosexual, bisexual and homosexual people, and guess what? Now days we also can find curvy and skinny girls in the same runway! And all of this lovely people are just doing their fucking work, they DECIDED to be models, and when you’re a model you have to use your body in a smart way to sell the things that a designer makes, or to make a beautiful pictures with and/or for a photographer, and you’ll get paid doing that, you’re not being a whore or a plastic person doing that, you’re just doing what you love and like to do…
I’m a woman, and YES I’m a feminist too, and YES at some point of my life I want to be a model too, and HELL YES that is what I want for my life, I want to be a model because I love photography, and to me there’s an amazing thing behind all of this pictures that you can find on somekind of a fancy store, and I just like this about fashion and creativity and photography, I just want to be part of this hardcore world, but I’m feminist too, and I’ll always fight for the equality of the sexes and people, not only women rights, because ladies, we’re not alone in this world.
This girls from Femen are just making bad things around the world, you want equality and you’re assaulting women while they’re working?! Are you being serious??… This is the reason of why the feminist movement are viewed as a bad or silly thing, this it’s just the fault of all the crazy women who thinks that assaulting and not respecting women is the right way to find the equality in the world. I mean if you want the equality and respect of the sexes, well first, start respecting yourself.
My first attemp making miniature stuff… I know this it’s not the best thing ever, BUT I put a lot of love (and effort) making this :3 the most part of the materials are recycled (fabrics, charm, paper, cardboard…) I spent like 3 weeks making this, and at the end I decided to gave this to my counsin for her coming baby :)
This it’s not a miniature master piece, I know that… Sorry but I’m not like SugarCharmShop :(
The donuts are made it with salt dought clay and the littles macarons are made it with foam and glue :D (super unprofessional I know… XD) however I’m happy with the finish result, I think that actually, it looks pretty good…
So, this is an old project I made for mother’s day. This was my gift to my lovely mother. I spent a lot of time making this letters, like 2 or 3 weeks, I don’t remember pretty well the time I spent in this… However I have to say that I enjoy a lot making this letters ♥
And the expression of my mother when she saw this was totally priceless!!
Robin Williams made everybody happy, but himself.
