On Saturday October 23, 2010 I attended the 5th Annual Love Your Body in West Hollywood. I am sure you have heard me tweet about it and post on Facebook as well. Well the day finally came and it was great. Love Your Body is basically a day for all woman to come together and accept themselves and body as they are. Its a day where all woman can come together and acknowledge our beauty despite what the media or fashion industry portrays as beautiful. This event was very empowering for all woman. It was great to see woman of all ages from little girls to elderly woman, of all sizes and ethnicity. The day was hosted by ANTM winner Whitney Thompson and Chenese Lewis. The day consisted of vendors, performers and ended with a fabulous runway fashion show. It was a great Saturday afternoon where no matter what size you are and where you are from all woman were made to feel beautiful and special. I got a chance to meet some very confident and smart woman all who are working hard to make a difference. On Sunday there was also a body image panel discussion. "Panelist share their personal and professional experiences with eating disorders, body image issues, and size discrimination. Discussion will include personal stories and resources for support and how to take action."
I didn't make it to the panel discussion, because I have been feeling sick but I am looking forward to hearing all about it from other attendees. Overall Love Your Body Day was great and uplifting experience. I will definitely attend next year and if your in the LA area so should you. Below are some pictures from the day I took. Enjoy!!
