O Professor Ivo Pitanguy
The world’s most famous plastic surgeon DR IVO PITANGUY- RJ-BOTAFOGO-BRASIL
Ivo Pitanguy is famous throughout the world, but in his native Brasil he’s a legend, eclipsed in public recognition only by Pelé, the soccer g-d. That a plastic surgeon could reach this level of renown says something about the Brazilian worship of physical beauty and, of course, Pitanguy’s knack with the knife.
A woman I have known for many years did something to her face not all that long ago, and for a few weeks afterward, I was not able to put my finger on it. Did she get her eyes done? Restylane injections? Botox? Then I thought, she got a face-lift.
Then one day, about a month later, I ran into her at a party and she looked stunning. The puffiness had settled, the fire under the skin had gone out. Even her lips looked like they belonged on her face. They were shaped just like her old lips, but … juicier. Her whole face looked as if it had been pushed out and plumped up—not unlike a slightly tired but still very stylish down-filled sofa that looks almost new if you keep those cushions fluffed. Icannot say that she looked exactly like her old self—but so close! A fantastic approximation! An uncanny resemblance! She looks like a very impressive artist’s rendering of her..........and her surgeon as I finally surmised was: Dr Ivo Pitanguy, and alas he is great but for me my doctor is the absolutely best :) (Dr Steven M Hoefflin...Michaelangelo to me)..and if you don't know than you don't know.
BAHALA NA ANG DYOS
The Filipino philosophical expression "Bahala na!" is usually interpreted as a fatalist remark, comparable to "Whatever will be, will be", the expression and its meaning might have been altered throughout the ages. It might have originally been "Bathala na!" ("As God wills it!"), but was changed at one point in time. It might also be uttered when the Filipino has exhausted all possible ways to get out of a difficult situation. A modern fuller version of the phrase is "Bahala na ang Diyos!

In the canon of cult-worthy designers, Azzedine Alaïa exists in a rarified space outside the rest. Like a mystical force in the fashion field, his collections follow no calendar, rigorous cycle, or even standard trends. Yet, his collections entrance audiences from editor to buyer and can be spotted in a sea of frocks thanks to a signature silhouette that can best be described as wholly feminine.
Get Yourself Some AlaïaAzzedine Alaïa’s list of accomplishments is both long and varied. He is the master of the laser-cut and seamless-knit, virtuoso of the curve-hugging, incomparably flattering frock with just the right amount of flounce and flou. He also:
- has dressed maybe every supermodel since the term was born
- was, legend has it, so beloved by Greta Garbo that she would visit his studio in disguise to avoid the paparazzi, rarely missing a fitting.
So, if you've got great taste (you must) and some cash burning a hole in your pocket, buy at least one piece it will last for posterity.

If ever someone tries to convince you that there is only one path to success just remind yourself that Miuccia Prada earned a PhD in political science then became a mime then a member of the Italian communist party then a woman's rights activist then became one of the world's most iconic designers then opened an art gallery: and is now the ninth richest woman in the world.

There are many I can assure you. I will first present the classic ones that more less “every” it girls owns.
HERMÈS BIRKIN BAG
Price: £6,000 to £100,000 / $9,600 to $160,440 / €7,100 to €119,000
This bag got named after the singer Jane Birkin since the CEO of Hermès Jean-Louis Dumas sat next to her on a flight in 1984. She complained she couldn’t find a leather bag she liked & from there the Birkin Bag got born. The design itself is based on a bag from 1892, like the original one, Birkin Bag is always hand made which makes it two full days for each bag to get created by it’s artisans.
This bag is a true status symbol for jet setters, with it’s famous 6 year long waiting list and a price tag of $$$$$$$. Depending on material used, the cost range varies between £6,000 to £100,000.
CHANEL 2.55 FLAP BAG
Price: Depending on size, see example below for the Large Flap bag
The 2.55 Flap bag got released in February 1955 by Coco Chanel (hence the name 2.55) but when Karl Lagerfeld took over as a creative director in 1983, the bag got reissued in it’s original design but with slight changes.
Today I would claim the Chanel 2.55 exist in every wardrobe. The bag comes in a wide range of colors, either in matte lamb skin or caviar finish.
DIOR LADY DIOR BAG
Price: £1,427 to £2,600 / $1,850 to $3,900 / € 1,700 to €3,100
The story behind the Lady Dior hand bag is actually connected to Britain’s former Princess Diana. Back in September 1995 France´s First Lady Bernadette Chirac gave Diana a Dior stitched leather handbag with a dangling letter charms (apparently, the stitched square pattern on the bag was inspired by the Napoleon III chairs used in Dior’s first ever fashion show in 1947). Diana instantly fell in love with the design and was snapped on various visits toting her bag, the house renamed their bag ‘Lady Dior’ in her honor.
These days the Lady Dior bag comes in many variations and is one of the most popular bags worn by it girls...
HERMÈS KELLY BAG
Price: approx £4,500 / approx $8,000 / approx € 5,500
The Kelly was made in the Thirties but became famous in 1956 when a pregnant Princess Grace Kelly used different versions of the bag to cover hide her expanding stomach in a bid to hide her condition from the press. It takes around 18 hours to make a single Kelly bag, and it’s a favorite of many celebrities past and present, including Victoria Beckham, who has a huge collection of Birkins and Kellys.

Her style, not that minimalistic, has a certain dynamic that catches the viewer’s attention. It is characterised by a kind of romanticism which, however, is broken down by some more mannish, or formal, or even rock elements. And that is why street photographers love her!

a little take on Japan-日本,
If you've listened to spoken Japanese at all you've probably noticed the word です desu, often pronounced with the last vowel reduced so that it sounds like "dess." This word is basically the verb "to be" in its formal form. It's really simple to use: if you want to say "I am John" just say ジョンです John desu and if you want to state your nationality, just say アメリカ人です America-jin desu or カナダ人です Canada-jin desu or whatever. The subjects of Japanese sentences are usually left off if the meaning is clear from the context, but if you wanted to clarify that you're talking about yourself and not, say, Michelangelo, you could say 私はジョンです watashi wa John desu (lit. As for me, I'm John). If someone pointed to an apple on a table and asked you what it was, you could say りんごです ringo desu, which works when discussing the drummer of the Beatles, too. The desu sentence ending is a formal word, useful for making a good impression on Japanese you might try talking to, especially if they're older than you.

Modern day facelifts involve making some form of incision around the ears, separating the skin from the deeper tissues, lifting and repositioning the deeper tissues in the cheeks and jawline, and finally trimming redundant skin. This is the basic definition of a facelift. It primarily lifts tissue in the lower face producing an improvement in the sagging tissues of the cheeks, around the mouth, and jawline (jowl).
