Beauty Skin Deep

So it's Fashion Week in London, and I just had to post this photo appearing in the New York Times cause I love me a cute hat. Meanwhile back in Kansas, as the Style section also reports, women are apparently flocking to get a not-yet-FDA-approved anti-fat injection called lipodissolve. Scary, because:
Neither the drug formula used in lipodissolve nor the method of treatment is standardized. And researchers disagree whether the shots eliminate fat cells, or merely liquefy fat so that it shifts around in the body, raising the possibility of long-term consequences such as the aggravation of heart disease.
Reminds me of that terrifying finding (which I first learned about in Courtney's book) that showed survey respondents preferring thinness to long life. Ugh. Obsession with hats far safer than obsession with fat.
