The Red Carpet Issue

It’s definitely a Monday. So blah when I woke up…so uninspired…until I turned on my television.If you have “On Demand” go over to the Sundance Channel and watch the documentary “The Red Carpet Issue.” It’s a behind-the-scenes look at how the red carpet, fashion, designers, and celebrities come together to form this mega-money making business.

This Nine West bag is perfect and it was only $22!The shoes were a…

Ads like Dove’s “Campaign For Real Beauty” actually lowered enthusiasm in both overweight and normal-weight consumers, according to Naomi Mandel, a marketing professor at Arizona State’s W.P.
