Kate Upton on the Cover of Vogue

Twenty year old Kate Upton is doing more than making a name for herself: she’s helping facilitate a much needed and long awaited change in the way women are portrayed in the media. The bombshell graces the cover of the most recent edition of Vogue, where she is referred to as “the hottest supermodel on earth,”:

The magazine expressed an interest in the well-being of their readers and promised to not work with models under the age of sixteen, “who appear to have an eating disorder.” The magazine also encouraged designers to rethink how they picture, design, and market clothing, which often drives models to diet in order to fit into unrealistically proportioned clothes.

Upton speaks fondly of her own body, ignoring the preposterous “overweight” comments that have been thrown her way:

“The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”

New trend for athletic apparel

There is a new trend emerging for athletic apparel, and it’s snowballing. The trend isn’t gaining popularity for how cute or sexy it is– it’s actually extremely functional. What makes it better than the rest is how scientifically advanced it is.

Meet the new Kickstarter Radiate shirt. It changes colors as you exercise. It’s not like a mood ring. The color changes are based on body heat. So, if you are working a specific muscle group, the area of the shirt covering that muscle group will react to the heat created, causing it to change colors.

The creator, Kenneth Crockett, had this to say about the technology involved: “We raised the bar on [thermochromic technology] and engineered it to a precise and specific temperature range, and with that temperature range, we were able to calculate just how hard you’re exerting certain muscles.”

To demonstrate its effectiveness, Crockett donned a dull purplish/grey shirt and began exercising. After a few reps of chest presses, the shirt had turned a bright pink color. “It’s the only shirt that shows what you’re doing in real time,” Crockett said, “And as I work out harder and harder, it gets brighter and brighter.”

Sales of the shirt are skyrocketing. Within thirty hours of making it available online, Radiate Athletics met their goal of $30,000. Surprisingly, the NASA-developed technology that the shirts employ is relatively affordable; shirts start online for only $25.

Kelly Osbourne, Make Mine Milk

Ever since she said goodbye to extra pounds, Kelly Osbourne has become an example of healthy living. At least judging from this picture that wants testimonial campaign, Make Mine Milk . This picture shows a Kelly Osbourne in a red robe, hair in curlers in pure 50s style mustache and a lot of white on the upper lip. A tangible sign to those who have just drained 20 liters of milk in one gulp. Smiling and happy as in the classic commercials, we are ready to take her morning beauty routine that involves, as the headline reads, “breakfast, makeup and wardrobe.” So after a lifetime of junk food and a diet so drastically as to leave no doubt of its correctness, Kelly Osbourne becomes the champion of correct eating habits and try to lead by example. And to make more credible its role as the perfect spokesperson said, “I never thought to get to say a thing, but today, I truly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and do everything to be sure. Do not skip it ever. I learned to eat healthy during my participation in Dancing With The Stars, and since then I have not stopped. “
