TEEN TREND ALERT: THE KYLIE JENNER CHALLENGE!

Monday, April 20th, 2015

Kylie Jenner ChallengeUnder the heading of “kids do the stupidest things,” comes the #kyliejennerchallenge.  Teens across America have flooded Twitter with emulations of the reality diva-in-training’s super-sized lips.  Placing their lips inside the mouth of a shot glass, plastic cup, or even a popular device called, CandyLipz, teens suck in air for approximately five minutes.  As the vacuum suction causes an increase in blood flow to the area, the lip area is temporarily enhanced.  While the practice may be, at first, amusing, teens are soon discovering that it doesn’t come without consequence.  Bruising and swelling are common side-effects, and, in some cases, there is even scarring and permanent damage to the upper lip area.

Towel SeriesA-Listers and top models are willing to throw (on) the towel for superstar photographer, Mario Testino.  The latest to pose in his exclusive Towel Series on Instagram is Selina Gomez.  Gomez joins an “exclusive club” that features men and women, including Blake Lively (upper left), Keira Knightley (lower left), and Miranda Kerr (lower right), posing in the nude.   Initially intrigued by the power of Instagram, the photographer revealed to Vogue, ” When I first began using Instagram, I was at a shoot with Kate Moss and I saw her in her dressing room after a shower—she was in a robe and a towel on her head and I just decided to capture that moment and post it.”  The photographer explained, “It’s such a new way of communicating,” adding, “I think girls and guys feel this freedom at being able to express themselves. There is no predetermined way of how you put the towel on. You can do anything you want—wear it however you want. I have always treasured this kind of freedom: it’s rare.”
