Spring Giveaway: We're Giving Away 3 Pairs Of Tieks Ballet Flats Valued At Up To $1,000!

But today in particular the Mail’s sidebar grabbed me. First it was Miranda Kerr dolled up in some women’s magazine, then January Jones, then Dakota Fanning. One, two, three, throw in a couple of lesser-known Victoria’s Secret models in European fashion spreads, Olivia Wilde dressed like a cancan dancer on the cover of Vanity Fair and an MSNBC news anchor showing off her baby bump and there it is: The whole absurd portrayal of women in fashion and entertainment media summed up in less than a few hundred megapixels.
