Be MY Guest: Kacie Whigham

19Apr10

This week for our Topic of the Week we were asked to chose  a second Guest Blogger! I chose Kacie Whigham! I’ve had many classes with Kacie during our college careers! Kacie wants to be a wedding planner so many of her blogs have to do with weddings, which I personal find interesting! The blog I am featuring is one she wrote on Celebrities and claiming to be “untouched.” I think Kacie shares a really interesting point of view! ENJOY:

UnTouched

By: Kacie Whigham

Celebrities are going untouched on magazine covers. Is this a PR stunt or just true honesty?

Recently, Jessica Simpson made headlines by going Untouched on the cover of Marie Claire. Apparently, Jessica didn’t even wear any makeup. Just last year, she was in the news for being overweight. In response, she has a new TV show out, called “Price of Beauty” in which her and couple of her friends travel all around the world, learning  beauty means in different cultures.

Is it just coincidence that all of this happens one after another? I think not. Jessica must have an awesome PR team behind her… fighting what media has made “beauty” to be. She is fighting back and people and listening.

Also in the news for going “untouched” in Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Kim’s comment on the message of the nude picture is “embrace your curves and who you are.”

The difference with Kim is that she is also an endorser for Quicktrim, a diet plan she claims to have used herself. Well, if she’s telling girls everywhere to embrace their curves, why is she drinking tasteless formula drinks daily instead of eating healthy full meals?

That doesn’t sound like embracing your curves to me. Maybe her PR team needs to take a look at Jessica’s and go for the natural workout approach.

    Thanks for having me as your guest blogger! I actually enjoyed writing this post. I find it so interesting that this would happen all at the same time. However, I was corrected on my blog that Jessica was actually wear nude make up on the cover of the magazine, but no makeup on the inside pages. Props to her for doing this, but that is very misleading, they need to put that out there, because this is giving girls a false sense of beauty.

    I thought that this was a great post! Everything really rang true when reading about what your guest blogger had to say! I was watching Jessica Simpsion on Oprah promoting her new show that you mention and it really does make you wonder if it is all a big publicity stunt. On the Oprah show, Jessica stated she was a size 6 when all of the tabloids came out calling her “fat” in the “mom jeans”. Our society is just consumed with what we look like and wear, which I feel that we are some to blame because we buy the magazines and diet pills. Interesting point of view though!
