That  was a quote from Marilyn Monroe and that’s what I thought of when I saw the V Magazine Swimsuit issue. It’s raw, provocative and just a little bit vulgar. I feel that V Magazine makes the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue look boring mostly because of its use use of powerful colors & neons layouts. V Magazine also did an excellent job incorporating black & white shots, my favorite being of Charles Devoe (he’s eye-candy indeed). The photos were taken by Mario Testino. Take a look:

Iron Curtain

Also, I just viewed Beyonce’s new video for her new song Ego (I really wish she’d just put the leotard to rest, NY Magazine agrees that it’s not charming stating the following, “We felt more comfortable with Britney (in her prime) dancing around in stretch pants and crop tops. The dancing in leotards must stop. Do it for the children, ladies”) and that’s when I also viewed the Diva video for the first time. I fell in love with her fringe sunglasses but I couldn’t find these sunglasses anywhere but I did find a pair with a similar concept from Germany designed by Bless
