But every year something comes up!! Thanks twitter, for letting me feel like I was there.
Protest, Chanel style.
First the Chanel Shopping Center, and now Boulevard Chanel No.5! Karl you pull at my heart strings! Chanel's ready to wear runway show for Paris Fashion Week is inspired by protest. The finale of the show was followed by a protest for WOMEN'S RIGHTS, of course in Chanel Style!
Model Cara Delevingne with megaphone in hand led the demonstration chanting "What Do We Want?"
Emma Watson United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador speaks about Feminism, its misconceptions, and formally inviting men to the fight for gender equality in the campaign HE FOR SHE.
As if my inquiries were heard and answered. My motto goes, if Feminism doesn't have a little bit of glitter and dancing, then I want no part in it. I am completely down for Karl Lagerfeld's idea of today's Feminist being fashion forward. And if there were a fashion brand to be all for women, women's rights it would be Chanel. Let's not forget Coco Chanel who paved the way for women's sportswear and her iconic Chanel pantsuit.
It is a great time to be a young woman.

For sometime I have been researching Feminism, specifically the baggage that comes with the label. And for the longest time, I had always distanced myself front the label. It made me uncomfortable. But of course, I have come to understand where the negativity comes from and the true meaning of the word and movement.
I wish that this rediscovery happened sooner. Or better yet, I had understood Feminism from the start! But what has made this process far more comforting and equally interesting if watching different women (of my generation) in popular culture discover and embracing Feminism.
So from Beyonce, to T-swift, the beauty industry and all things pink. There is a reinvigoration of the word Feminism, and I love watching it happen!
If the number of people going under the knife in order to obtain western ideals of beauty, I am curious as to how many choose the non-surgery alternatives.
"Tape," is a common trick used to achieve a double lid. I find that it is more popular among the younger generation. And from my experience, it has become a staple for many young asian girls.
My recent discovery, the MERSUII Magic Eyes Double Eyelids Trainer Glasses is really another step. The mechanism sits on the users nose, like a pair of glasses and advertises that it will coax one's mono eye lids into a double lid.
More non-surgical contraptions to augment one's face.
