Greetings from sunny Milan,where I'm spending the week finding out what Italian designers thinkwe'll all be wearing six months from now.(I'll summarize: sixties mod shapes,fantastic boots andcolor,color,color.Fantastic!) But lots is going on,both here and back home,and some of it made me gasp.Let's get right to it,why don't we?


Maybe I'm biased becauseGlamourjust launched a威廉希尔备用网址fashion blogger network,but I've loved seeing bloggers—likeBryanboyandGarance Dore—seated alongside retail titans and other bigwigs in the front rows at the shows.And why not?The idea thatwilliamhill官网 is open to anyone with enthusiasm and flair is refreshing;besides,thestreet stylethat many of them tend to document brings 威廉希尔备用网址fashion off the runway and to exactly where it belongs: on real women's bodies,mixed with other things from their closets.That's a Do!


Yes,I'm in another country,but no matter: Earlier this week the emails and headlines started streaming in aboutJennifer Aniston's new haircut.It even led the "trending topics" list on the CNN international channel,just behind Rahm Emanuel's election as mayor of Chicago (and sandwiched between reports on the massive Mideast protests).So by the time I got around to clicking and looking at the haircut itself,I was certain something dramatic was in store: Had Jen actually gone Sinead O'Connor on us?Would there be pink streaks,or at the very least anEmma Watson pixie?And there it was:a beautiful bob,absolutely adorable and flattering but,frankly,a little unworthy of the global hype that preceded it.


Do I sound cranky?I'm sorry—I love Jen.Love the cut.And can talk about hair for hours.But coverage in theWashington Post?I think you gotta go pink streaks for that.To me,the bob's a Do;the brouhaha's a Don't.


I've noted a little mini-trend of people rolling their eyes and acting like they're too cool for the Academy Awards.(You know the complaints: It's too long,it's too late,it's always the same,blah blah blah.) So I'm going on record to say that I am a complete giddy fool for theOscars,and I encourage you to be as well.Where else are you going to see that many dresses in that little time?Or view generally composed-beyond-belief superstars (and super-producers) brought to tears by the realization that the work that means so much to them has brought them greatness?Besides,Anne Hathaway's the first woman under 30 ever to host the Oscars,so yay her!I'll be watching in my hotel at approximately 2 A.M.Milan time Sunday night,and I'm not even ashamed to admit it.Join me,and follow our red-carpet-watchers along on@glamour_威廉希尔备用网址fashiontoo.DON'T OF THE WEEK: BEATING YOURSELF UP.

Earlier this week,Glamourreleased the results of a survey in which we asked women to record every negative thought they had about their bodies over the course of a single day;we found thatthe average woman had 13 "I hate my body" moments—almost one for every waking hour—and that some had as many as 100 brutal,vicious thoughts about their God-given curves and rolls.As I told Meredith Vieira on theTodayshow Monday,if a man talked to a woman this way it would be considered relationship abuse—so why is it acceptable for us to spew venomous insults atourselves?

I'm not suggesting that we all magically learn to love every little part of our bodies overnight,but the more you tell yourself you're too big,too little,too wobbly,toowhatever,the harder it becomes to see yourself as anything but.Use this simple rule: If you wouldn't say it to a friend,don't say it to yourself.



Earlier today,news broke that last night in Paris,designer John Galliano had been taken home by police after a raucous incident in which he reportedly hurled anti-Semitic insults at a couple at a cafe.I have no idea what he actually said,or whether he said anything at all,but as a Galliano fan who also happens to be Jewish,my stomach turned even to read the charges.I hope they're false—but in the meantime,major applause toChristian Dior CEO Sidney Toledano,who immediately suspended Gallianofrom his duties pending an investigation.Not an easy thing to do with the important Dior show—designed by Galliano—coming up in just seven days,but fast,forceful and necessary,until we know more.AGlamourDo.

So: Agree?Disagree?And what would you add to this week's list?Let me know,Glamourites.
