Best Body Trend: Flesh
Nope, it’s not those mangled earlobes that have migrated from Black Rock City’s beloved Playa to the (almost) mainstream streets of Venice Beach. It’s ... FLESH! Round arms, full faces, radiant complexions, happy, glowing, plump feminine figures that celebrate all that is woman and abundance and yes, please; more, please; gimme all you got, universe! Gone are crimped, contracted waists and overly defined biceps and gaunt, sallow faces taking gray, bumpy hit after hit for jutting rib cages and bird legs. Women of L.A., take back your flesh. Step boldly into your beauty and your bodies. Eat an avocado! Love every inch of yourself.
