If this isn’t proof that we’re all always scrutinizing our looks, I don’t know what is!
Pamela Anderson opened up to Parade Magazine about self-confidence in their latest issue, admitting that while she used to recognize her sex appeal, she never really felt very….pretty.
But now that she’s older and has a new modeling contract, the 47-year-old has learned to embrace her looks.
Pamela explained why it took her so long to get one, saying:
“I’ve just signed with Next Modeling agency for commercials and appearances. That is funny. I’ve never felt pretty enough to be a model. I think I’ve provoked feelings with how I look. But not as a beauty but as a mischievous little rascal! I’ve always been a tomboy. That was never the first thing on my list. My mom always told me beauty comes from within. And I know that’s maybe a cliché, but I do believe that. And I think that’s what lasts forever.”
I know, it’s a cliche, but it’s still important to hear it. She also talk aging:
“I don’t really feel like I want to chase youth. I want to get old. I want to experience all the seasons of my life. I just don’t want to be afraid of it. And I think in this industry you’re surrounded by a lot of fear of getting older and fear of your looks leaving you. And I thought, ‘Well, I’m lucky then, because I never really felt that great looking.’ I felt like I had fun. I felt like I could be sexy. I could be provocative and I could use my image to get attention for things that I cared about.”
Sometimes Pamela Anderson seems ridiculous, and sometimes she seems super articulate. I call it the Iggy Azalea Effect. Here, she’s definitely inspiring, and I love how much self-awareness she has. Get your MODEL on, GIRRRRL.

Selena Gomez decided to take her look back 20 years, or, you know, so says her Instagram.
Apparently, the star (who usually wears extensions or without, has a shoulder-length cut) decided to do a different ‘do, though at first it looks a little wig like. Still, her instagram sports her out and about with the 90’s shag, so I’m kinda thinking it is her real, new cut.
What do you think of Gomez’s new look? Throwback chic or past its prime?!

I never noticed this…but she really doesn’t, does she?
Jennifer Garner dishes to People about her beauty…limitations?
“Red lips on me is obnoxious. I have enough of a big ol’ face that the last thing anyone needs is to have anything exaggerated that much. I never used powder unless I’m about to be in front of a camera. I don’t need that matte, crunchy feeling.”
Hah! You have a gorgeous face, Jennifer!
The star also talks about dieting, or lack thereof. People reports:
“There’s always a point in the fitting where I feel like, ‘Why didn’t I just try to lose four pounds and then I could wear any dress?’ I just can’t though,” Garner says in a new interview with Yahoo! Beauty. “I dieted for so long in the middle of doing Alias and being a superhero, that there’s something in me that can’t do anything that extreme.”
But it’s not like the 42-year-old mom is sitting around eating donuts. “I eat lots of leafy greens, dark greens, with rice too because I want it to be a meal,” she shares. “I just have a big bag of greens that I get from the farmer’s market on Sunday. I keep it in a Ziploc bag and I just pull out handfuls of it for lunch everyday and add whatever I have to it.”
There’s always room for PIZZA, though!
“With food I’m probably good 80 percent of the time. I’ve found out that I cannot pass up pizza without having some. I just can’t,” she says. “My kids have a lot of pizza. I can’t go to a kid’s birthday party without having a slice.”
Hear, hear, JEN!

Plus-size model Ashley Graham, recently revealed her feelings on Hollywood’s beauty standards… especially when people call actress Jennifer Lawrence “curvy.” Which might be true, seeing asJ.Law said she’s considered “obese” by celebrity standards.
Yeah, this model is not having ANY of it. Graham explained:
“Jennifer Lawrence is the media’s poster girl for curves — she’s tiny. There needs to be more education in schools, because that’s where eating disorders start. It’s not just about being healthy; it’s also about loving who you are.”
“We need role models for young girls who say embrace your curves, who cares if you body isn’t perfect? I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to educate women on that. It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22, you can be healthy as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, telling yourself ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards.”
AGREED! Both Jennifer Lawrence and Ashley Graham are beautiful. Period. PREACH!
