Rising Revolt

Inspired by the woman’s empowerment movement during the 1940’s when war forced housewives to hang up their aprons and enter the male dominated workforce, PLUTOCRACY’s Fall/Winter 2010 collection “Rising Revolt” represents the modern corporate rebel... The woman who knows she can look sexy and professional at the same time. The woman who refuses to blend in with the suits she is surrounded by. The woman who won’t take “no” for an answer and wears the clothes that show she means it. The corporate rebel uses her sense of style to show her state of mind and is stirring up the masses in a Rising Revolt...

The Black Marilyn Monroe 50+ Years Later


Strikingly similar features and expressions. Note how each is serving up the same stealthy dosage of sensuality. To think Joyce painted her hair with radiator paint, how FRESH is that????

re:Fresh Fruit

The Sex and the City Paradox
" 'You are simultaneously totally objectified and more empowered than you used to be.' Objectified because we're prostrating our bodies on some pedestal of misogynistic, almost pedophiliac-like desire, creating a false kind of perfect woman whose beauty and polish can be attained only after hours and weeks of personal grooming and high-end hygiene. Empowered because it's all marketed to us as some sort of self-improvement." 
-Alex Kuczynski for Harper's Bazaar
