sorry, but that pic looks photo-shopped? Where is the blood and teeth?

@y- You know, I wouldn't put it past the folks at the NYpost since that paper is a tabloid anyway.

Did you hear that Naomi wouldn't let Jessica White into her 40 b-day party?

Y said...

Yeah NY Post is probably looking for hype.

No I didnt hear about that, what a shame. I thought Naomi was past all of that petty stuff. Guess she is back to her old shenanigans. I love Jessica White's look. She is so beautiful, although sh kind of ruined it by getting that nose job. Whenever I look at post-op pictures I think of MJ, its a little sad.

@Y- Man I knew I wasn't going crazy. Looking at older pictures, Naomi's nose was wider. Same thing with Tyra Banks and Kimora.Kimora's is very bad because her nose is too narrow to balance her features.

Isn't it funny how high fashion and the beauty industry are willing to accept blk models as they are but when they want to become actors that they go tampering with their feautres. I hope Channel Iman leaves her flat nose alone.

I know! However, Tyra's nose looks the same to me...that or she had a very good surgeon. Kimora's nose is a disaster. I saw a pic of when she was a teen model and she was so cute! Her nose paired with her thick curly hair made her look more "mixed". But now that she has a nose job and wears her hair bone straight she just looks like a dark E. Asian.

Yeah I think there is more pressure to look "mainstream" (read: white) when working in television and/or catalog modeling. You have to appeal to the everyday, white masses. Being to "exotic" and different can work against you on TV. But in high fashion when a black girl is picked she has to look black w/ black features.

Chanel Iman is beautiful! I hope she keeps her nose too!

Really, her nose is too narrow for her face now if you ask me. I'll try to find some old pics and agreed on Kamora. I thought she was cuter with curly hair and her natural nose.

Mmm interesting. Maybe I should look at some old Tyra pics. I saw a picture of her over at Abagond's, where half was her adult self and the other half was her as a kid. Here is the link: http://abagond.wordpress.com/2010/03/11/sticks-and-stones-may-break-my-bones-but-names-will-never-hurt-me/

@Y- I checked it out. Someone posted a recent picture and now I think you're probably right. It's conturing, the makeup artist is truly an artist cause her nose with makeup looks very different.
