Doe Deere Fashion Statement Attracts the Attention of Richard Prince

Doe Deere is the founder and CEO of the controversial cosmetic company known as Lime Crime Cosmetics. Recently, Deere’s red velvet lips, blue hair and beautiful eyes caught the attention of Richard Prince, the president of Gagosian Gallery.

Richard Prince is a popular artist in the industry, and he loved the make-up used by Deere. Ms. Deere posted one of her images in her Instagram account. In the picture, she was matching herself with a doll that was custom made. The doll had luminous skin, and it was dressed in some of the Lime Crime colors. Richard Prince liked this image, and he took a screen shot of it.

Deere had posted the image on her Instagram page to give exposure to her friend who makes dolls, Joshua David. However, the sixty six year old artist decided to tweak the text, and he also deleted the name of the doll’s designer. He made a large print of the image.

During the Frieze Art Fair held in New York City, the print made by Prince managed to sell at ninety thousand dollars. The sale was not as expensive as selling a Barbie doll, but it was enough to put its creator in the limelight.

Joshua Antony is thirty five years old, and just like Deere, he has blue hair. He specializes in making dolls, and he is based in Brooklyn. He has several followers, including Grace Jones. He has been doing this for more than three years now. This is his way of expressing art after being successful as a famous fashion illustrator.

Doe Deere has made her name in the beauty industry in the recent times. Her products are being sold everywhere in the world. She is extremely talented in in make- up issues, and she can easily play around with colors and shades.

The beauty queen was born in Russia. However, her parent relocated to the New York City, and this is where she was raised. After completing her education, she decided to start Lime Crime Cosmetics. The company has done extremely well over the years. The company’s mission is to prove to the world that make up can be used to do more than just cover the imperfections people have.

She encourages women to break some of the famous fashion rules. According to her, women can look good in colorful and cruelty free cosmetics. She has even gone ahead to prove that it is possible to look beautiful, even when some of the fashion rules are broken.
Doe Deere argues women to wear and mix different colors. According to her, these colors make a huge difference in a woman’s look, unlike many people who believe that many colors make a woman look scary. As long as the colors are well coordinated, an individual will definitely look good.

Evacuation Safety Versus Home Ownership

 

Americans love their homes, and for most of us it is the largest investment we have or will ever make. We have worked hard for what we have and feel the need to protect it. This is why evacuation in an emergency situation is, such as a Hurricane, is a traumatic and terrifying decision. Due to the identification we derive due to home ownership many people decide to ride out the storm, thinking to protect their property. Not only are they protecting their homes from the storm but, according to Accuweather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski, he believes people are fearful their home may be vandalized, while others think it won’t happen to them.
Often, when an evacuation is ordered, according to a recent study conducted by Plymouth Rock Assurance Company, 47 percent of the 1,001 New Jersey homeowners polled stated they would leave if asked. However 42 percent admitted their decision would be based on the severity of the storm, according to an article from Accuweather. 
These same people were evenly divided regarding future hurricane preparations and whether they would do anything differently, even after dealing with the after effects of Superstorm Sandy. Fifty-seven percent once again said it would depend on the severity of the storm while twenty-three percent did say it would be safer to evacuate if a hurricane was approaching.
James Stone, Executive and founder of Plymouth Rock Management Company of New Jersey, stated, “While we are proud of the strength and resilience New Jersey residents have demonstrated, we must not forget the lessons of the past.” Mr. Wilson went on the say, “Failure to obey evacuation orders can be catastrophic, not only for those who stay, but also for emergency responders.”
New Jersey’s barrier islands and some low lying seaside communities, such as Seaside Heights, were easier to evacuate than the mainland due to the mandatory evacuation order. But the mainland evacuation was not mandatory and the resulting flood waters were much higher than anyone anticipated.
Sheriff Michael Mastronardy, the emergency management coordinator for Ocean County, New Jersey, said Tom’s River still has more than 1,000 homes scheduled to be demolished this year.
In the end it is a personal decision.

Sugar Babies Like Their Arrangement

Some women are participating in an agreed upon arrangement which pays for their college education and in most cases a modest life style. Informally called “Sugar Babies,” these women form pragmatic relationships with older men of means and wealth. The arrangement is simple. For affection and comfort and maybe other benefits from the woman, the man pays for the woman’s tuition and maybe provide her with a weekly or monthly stipend. Society Debates Whether Sugar Babies Are Simply Sex Trade In Another Form While some find the arrangement agreeable, others are hotly debating whether such arrangements are supporting a sex trade in another form. Some of gone on to state that these types of arrangements are simply prostitution, but many argue that the line between a consenting relationship between a man and woman and what society deems illicit sexual behavior are becoming extremely blurred. many take the argument even further and contend that the concept of prostitution is outmoded, except in the instances of forced sex trade and human trafficking. This is the problem. Do arrangements which Sugar Babies enjoy create the environment for human trafficking or are the two, separate and distinct issues. While paying for sex is illegal in most areas, some argue that paying tuition for a woman in exchange for intimate companionship is essentially the same activity. society may be forced to deal with this issue sooner than they may want to as a result of more open social relationships, brought about by social media.
