Genious cover

This is genious. Industrie is a brand new fashion magazine and this is its first cover. Instead of featuring a supermodel photographed by an A-list photographer they chose a simple picture of Anna Wintour. That's how you get attention. Go Industrie!

Is it me that I'm fat or is Alessandra Ambrosio too skinny?

I usually post strictly about fashion editorials or designers or style overall but this time I felt like posting about our bodies and what is too skinny, if there is such a thing. 
As we approch beach season all the magazines are doing all these articles about the body and if size matters and what diet, exercises and other beauty treatments we can do to prepare ourselves for exposing our body now that the weather is getting hotter and our clothes are coming off. 
So this month Elle France used Alessandra Ambrosio as the 'perfect body for this spring of 2010' and as I saw her pictures (please try to ignore the hot guy in the photo and try to focus on Alessandra) I thought 'I don't want too look like that.. She's so skinny' ... Yes, I said I didn't want to look like Alessandra Ambrosio, a Victoria's Secret model who is considered by as the most sexy woman on the planet and by as the 6th most desirable woman in the world. That being said, I realize I must be crazy.
Actually, this confuses me.. because if she is one of the most desirable woman in the world, people that say that men want girls to have curves so they can have something to 'grab' to, those people must be joking with curvy girls as apparently that's not true.
So the question is, is she too skinny or am I fat? Is it right to Elle France impose her as the perfect body? If I am reasonably confident about my body (and by reasonably I mean despite having flaws I am pretty happy with my body) does having these questions about Alessandra Ambrosio makes me not confident? Is there such a thing as too skinny? And at what line is someone fat? 
If Elle France ellects her as the perfect body should any woman who doesn't have a body like hers feel bad about her appearance? That's just ridiculous. 
What do you think?

Delicious details on my mind right now

I love this shirt, so simple but different! The panels on the shoulders are really elegant and sexy at the same time, and  it seems to be very comfortable and light too.
This image above I saw it and love the idea of constriction portrayed in it.
And this one I loved because it's so opposite of the one before. This one is light and airy and summery.. good thoughts.
Yellow booties. Large belt. Prada cristal shoes. Fendi bag.
This one is from... no, not MiuMiu, Zara lookbook! I love how Zara always copies the best pieces of the best collections. Thank god for that! (It's only 19,95€, and doesn't come with white collar)

Backstage @ Proenza Schouler

If you don't know who Proenza Schouler are let me fill you in: they're new up and coming desginers from New York and their clothes are really young and urban and BEAUTIFUL! I loved their collections for SpringSummer 2010 and FallWinter 2010 (probably my favorite collection for next season from all the fashion weeks).
They already have many celebrity clients, among them are: Emma Watson, Chloe Sevigny, Lauren Santo Domingo.
So to show you a climpse of the Proenza Schouler brand I'll show you this backstage video from the Spring Summer collection for some inspiration.
