    ClosetNerd. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

    Speaking of Monica Bellucci, she walked in Dolce & Gabbana's first runway show. Here's what she said about it:
    “I wasn’t getting that much work because I wasn’t that skinny,” she recalls. “But they made me feel that my curves were an asset.”
    Also, more recently, she has been publicly criticizing America's obsession with ultra-skinny bodies by saying things like:
    She explains, "Too many American actresses and models are slender and childish-looking. Perhaps it's because some men are frightened of real women and are drawn to childlike looks as they want to protect them. I've never been frightened of being a real woman. It might seem old fashioned, but I think many men want to see real women with full figures. They don't want skin and bone, yet all the time actresses try to be thinner than thin. In America, if a man tells a woman she's beautiful, the woman might be full of plastic surgery, work out two hours a day and spend a fortune on cosmetics and clothes. Then the woman gets offended because she's being treated like a piece of meat." The 34-year-old prides herself in her status as an absolute natural by refusing to work on her stunning good looks. She says, "I don't work out and I would never have surgery - but I'm flattered if men say they appreciate me..."
    Again, just to bring it all back on topic, this is why I'm glad that Yoanna has, all this time, emphasized the healthful way in which she lost her weight, and continues to maintain her figure.

    Yoanna was just on Good Day Live giving a backstage tour at L.A. Fashion Week. She was GREAT! She said that she did the Custo Barcelona show last night with some of the big name girls (she mentioned Alex Wek) and she does the Sue Wong Show today (she get's to do 3 looks, one a Wedding Dress, which is usually the finale dress). This should be really great for her.

    Here's some not so great screen captures from the Custo show. Once again, only one look, but Alex Wek only did 2, so i don't think that's so bad. Yoanna did get applause on the runway. I think having her do the L.A. Fashion Week was a really good move, being an entertainment industry town, the audiences are probably more receptive.

    Good observation, Chorita. I agree, having Yoanna start in LA was probably the best move her management could have made. LA is not as exclusive as NY; also, Tinseltown loves a good backstory. NY fashionistas would not applaud her so openly, I don't think, but in LA the attitude is much more relaxed. This gives Yoanna time to build up her confidence and cred so she can face the tougher, more discriminating fashionistas of the style capitol.

    i don't know if this was covered but Yoanna was on Ryan Seacrest, she seemed tired the weird thing is she's 5'11" + heels and Ryan didn't seem that short next to her, especially sitting on the couch, they were almost even (couch must be rigged) ANYHoo April was on 2 weeks ago and she "darwfed" ryan

    Back to Yoanna, she seem tired from LA fashion weak, and she gave Ryan this "glazed yawn" during the interview, anyone catch that??

    she was also on "Good Day Live" Wednesday but i missed it
