Yes, you read that right. Bagel head.
There are a lot of strange trends in the world of beauty and fashion that people seem to try and acclimate themselves to but this one might take the cake…or bagel.
No, people are not pasting bagels to their heads. That, that would just be silly. Saline is injected into the forehead to form a swollen ball. After a few minutes, a finger is pressed into the swelling to create a bagel looking shape. And there you have it. It lasts about 16-24 hours as the body absorbs the saline and the saline goes down.
And people thought tattoos’ and piercings were silly when they first came out.
I’ve always liked winner of America’s Next Top Model cycle 7 CariDee English, and now I like her even more.
Those of course were the days when I watched America’s Next Top Model, when it was still somewhat respectable.
If you haven’t heard, one of the former contestants, Jael Strauss, a finalist from cycle 8, is battling a methamphetamine addiction. Strauss appeared on the show when she was 22-years old. Strauss is now 28.

Apparently, the plan and last ditch effort to save Strauss is to go on Dr. Phil. While I have my own opinions about that, this has already happened, but will air on Sept. 13.
The once striking young lady is now a homeless, lost soul covered in sores fighting for her life.

So…where does CariDee come in in this?
She gave her thoughts on the matter:
“Tyra won’t do anything. She provided a wonderful platform for girls to have a chance at their dream, but, after there is no “Tyra Mail”. I had to guide myself, and even though I won a model competition I still had no idea what the modeling BUSINESS was like. … I am not complaining, I am simply defending. I love love what I have made for myself since my win, but mentally, its horrific. And any girl who has been on ANTM can back me up. No one wants to take us serious as models. I am sure the show lost its credibility in producing a top model somewhere btwn making 3 cycles a year and posing on roller coasters. Tyra wasn’t there when the cameras stopped rolling, nor did she reach out.”

So glad the models think the show turned to crap too! but obviously beyond that, it’s so refreshing to hear English be totally honest (and say what we’ve all been thinking).
And should they ever have casted Strauss in the first place?
“Poor girl. Having problems and then getting a hint of fame only make an addiction rise. They should have evaluated her a lot more before letting her on the show. All they saw was a personality good for television. Well, this hopefully will save at least her life and someone watching. Everything happens for a reason.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. So sad, and I sincerely hope Strauss gets better soon.
Well, I’m a little late, but just by a little. To celebrate the storming on the Bastille and France, let’s take a look at some classic French beauties.

Titled “Victim of Beauty,” Vasil Germanov photographed six models for a Bulgarian magazine with black eyes, torn out piercings, and burns (all of course special effects).
Many are upset over the images however, like Alison Meldrum, from anti-domestic violence charity Standing Together. ”Given that violence is already skyrocketing in teen relationships, this kind of perversity masquerading as “art” is very troubling,” Meldrum said.
Others however have found a different meaning, with one reader writing “To me this is amazing!! While some may think that this glamorizes violence, I think it makes you think outside of the square to what the photographer was trying to depict. To me it says while a woman can be scarred, she can in fact still be beautiful.”
What do you think?
*Note, based on the graphic nature of the images I’ve only added one. If you wish to see the rest, click here.
