Several years into the
recovery from the Great Recession, workers in the fashion and retail
industries are continuing to wait for payback. They are increasingly
dissatisfied with their jobs, less happy with the balance between their
work and the rest of their lives and more likely to be looking for
“Talent is asking for the same
thing it’s been asking for for years, and it remains dissatisfied and
in fact more so,” said Celeste Gudas, president of 24 Seven. “It’s a
very disruptive time in the industry, and with consolidation and the
shift towards e-commerce, workers see fewer opportunities.”
percentage of workers who said they were satisfied with their jobs fell
to 48 percent in this year’s study, sinking below the 50 percent mark
and down from 51 percent in last year’s survey and a robust 60 percent
in 2011. Those indicating they are “highly satisfied” fell to 14 percent
from 16 percent a year ago. The study noted that satisfaction was
greatest in the luxury and direct markets, including e-commerce and
catalogue/mail order, and lowest among lifestyle brands.
Kim Feenstra is a Dutch model of Indonesian descent. She was named the winning contestant of Cycle 2 of Holland's Next Top Model.
Feenstra came to prominence as a contestant on cycle two of Holland's Next Top Model. She became known for her irritating voice. Later in the show she confessed to being partly deaf in both ears due to an accident when she was a child. Feenstra gained popularity by her comic sentences and grammar mistakes, while the jury confessed not being 'wowed' by her sexy posing. However, by the end of the competition she won over the jury members with her skill at posing, and her walk. In the final episode, host Yfke Sturm called her the perfect candidate with potential for both runway and photographic modelling, and that Feenstra had the most potential of all the contestants to make it on either the national or international stage. Her prize was a €50,000 modeling contract with Max Models, a cover for Glamour magazine, 3 months all expenses paid modelling in South Africa for Ice Models, and a Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Feenstra subsequently starred on the cover of Glamour magazine's Summer edition.
Feenstra is signed to Scoop Models in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Beatrice International Models in Milan, Italy.
She played a part in the movie The Last Ottoman in a love scene with Turkish actor Kenan İmirzalıoğlu.

The Maybelline Company was created by New York chemist T.L. Williams in
1914. Williams, in his early 30's noticed his younger sister applying a
mixture of Vaseline and coal dust to her eyelashes to give them a
darker, fuller look. He adapted it in his small laboratory and produced a
product sold locally called lash-in-brow-line . The product was a local
hit, but the awkward name held it back. His sister, who inspired the
product, was named Maybel. So T.L. Williams renamed it Maybelline, a
combination of Maybel and Vaseline. It is under this name that
Maybelline has achieved its now legendary status in the field of
cosmetics. In 1917 the company produced Maybelline Cake Mascara, "the
first modern eye cosmetic for everyday use" and Ultra Lash in the 1960s,
which was the first mass-market automatic.
In 1991, the company adopted its current advertising slogan, "Maybe She's Born With It. Maybe It's Maybelline" tagline.
But last week, her [Kate Moss] hairstylist Oribe Canales let it slip that Moss in fact completed the shoot and that he was on set to style her hair. Moss is expected to appear on the January cover to coincide with Playboy’s 60th anniversary and the beauty’s own 40th birthday. Fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot her for the issue. We’re also told Moss has commissioned artist Chuck Close to create a work based on the images from her Playboy session.
