Tiara Time at Miss NY Chinese Beauty Pageant

1
Catherine Hui, a contestant in the Miss NY Chinese Beauty Pageant 2014, has makeup applied before the show at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Conn. In its 13th year, MNYCBP has become one of the most influential Chinese events in the U.S., while providing a major platform for American Chinese girls to enter the entertainment industry in China. The pageant accentuates the girls’ eyes to look bigger and doll like. “I have a mono lid…I love my Oriental eyes because they make me different”, said Alice Zhang. “But they (pageant team) always change it to give me the double eye lid”. The girls are taught to use double eye lid tape, enlarging eye contacts, Dolly Wink eye lashes, a lot of sun block and bright pink make up to achieve a wholesome and innocent look. “The Chinese beauty aesthetic is similar to Anime – super flawless”, said contestant Stephanie Hau.

Pictures of Animals Posing as Humans by Svetlana Valyiskaya

It’s often said that pets and their owners can start to look alike, but these adorable photographs take the old mantra to a new extreme. They are the work of Svetlana Valyiskaya (27), from St Petersburg, who snaps pets in everyday poses in her spare time from her job as a commercial photographer. The vibrant costumes and scenes, which Svetlana designs herself, have made the photos a hit in her native Russia – and it’s not hard to see why. She said: “I really love animals, they are loyal, faithful and true and always interesting to work with – plus they never criticise the photographs afterwards”.

Alex Minsky, Marine Who Lost a Leg and Gained a Modeling Career

1

U.S. Marine Alex Minsky lost his leg and nearly died in Afghanistan three years ago, when he and his fellow Marines fell victim to a roadside bomb. After recovering from a coma and learning to use his new prosthetic leg, the Purple Heart recipient fell into depression and started drinking. Then his younger brother died unexpectedly. His drinking and depression got worse.

He challenged himself to abstain from drinking for one day. That happened to be the day he was discovered by a photographer. Minsky, now 24, has since been posing for photos, showing off his tattoos, muscles and his war injuries.

“Just because I don’t have a leg doesn’t mean it’s going to slow me down,” Minsky said. “I want people to look at me and not give up. Not quit.”
