Hey Kids,

Love tagging yourself on Facebook, enjoy watching YOURSELF on family vacation videos...wish you were on a reality show?

Well , we've got something close enough for you!

As we've been inspired by the shameless self-promoters of Ecko and Lady Gaga and well, basically every Kardashian, we've decided that we want to get to know you readers up close and personal and make you internet famous!

So, here's how it works: If you want to see yourself in bright webpage lights, send us a picture of yourself reading Meets Obsession magazine (with our magazine promptly displayed, of course) and we'll publish your photo online.

You can order your copy here.

At Meets Obsession, we love creativity! So as long as we get a shot of your mug reading our mag, we don't care what else you're doing in the picture.

For you exhibitionists out there, no porno pics unless you want us sending it to your mom.

So that's it. Pretty easy, huh? It'll be like getting on YouTube for you except not really!

Because if self-promoters like Charlie Sheen can do it, why can't we?

In the end, don't we all just want to be winners?

Submit your photo here.

Meets Obsession Exclusive: The 10 Most Intriguing In Fashion

There’s no shortage of creative and talented people in the fashion industry.

But who are the rulebreakers, tastemakers and trailblazers?

Who commands attention?

And who do we love to talk about, whether good or bad?

Our list of fashion figures we love to hate, love to love, and most of all, are intrigued by.

The Femiman: Andrej Pejic

There once was a time when only female supermodels like Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen graced the catwalk and turned heads with their long legs and blonde tresses.

Now, it is Serbian-Australian model Andrej Pejic’s turn—and no, girls, he is not oiled, tan or posing in the latest Calvin Klein underwear advertisement.

Rather, Pejic, at 19, has mesmerized, electrified and downright confused the fashion world with his gender-bending features of pale skin, pursed lips, Rubenesque eyes, and well, feminine wiles.

Simply to describe Pejic as beautiful would be tantamount to calling Einstein smart. Pejic is androgyny at its apex, and is single-handedly spearheading the next wave in fashion—the “femiman”—or man with feminine qualities.

Yet, even this description falls short in describing his elusive and brilliant qualities. Standing at a statuesque 6’2, with bombshell blond hair, he exudes a graceful masculinity that is combined with a thoughtful, coquettish and contagious charm. When asked if he would consider a sex change operation for a contract with Victoria Secret in a March 2011 interview with The Telegraph, he replied, “You’d have to, wouldn’t you? I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way.”

Perhaps this is the kind of “can-do” attitude a model needs to excel in fashion.

As the hottest male and female model in the industry, Pejic has the unremitting attention of every major fashion designer. He is the current face of two major labels’ spring/summer 2011 advertisement campaigns—Marc Jacobs and Jean Paul Gaultier. Last January, he also landed Gaultier’s menswear and haute couture female shows in Paris. Gaultier, who has now featured Pejic in multiple runway shows, built his menswear show around Pejic, and closed his haute couture show with the stunning model as the blushing bride.

Yet, with the glowing fanfare that Pejic has received, he is surprisingly tempered in his response to all the public praise. “You can be in one minute and out the next,” Pejic said, almost pensively, in a television interview with Australian reporter, Rahni Sadler last February. Further, remarking on his beauty, he went on to say, “I think I am an attractive person… but I don’t place that much value on beauty and I don’t think society should either.”

Some of this modest temperament may be due to his chaotic and humble upbringing. Pejic’s childhood has been as richly provocative as his multi-layered looks...Read the rest of this article...


Barbara Briones' Shoe Collaboration with Retailer Anthropologie

Barbara Briones for Anthropologie: Color Weave Slingbacks

Barbara Briones, young shoe designer extraordinaire, has recently launched a three shoe collaboration collection with retailer Anthropologie.

The Barbara Briones for Anthropologie shoe collection, which is currently being  sold on Anthropologie.com, include a pair of colorful and rich  hand-woven slingbacks, a brown boot perfect for autumn, and a sexy t-strap heel, all which incorporate Briones’ masterful signature woven leather technique into the design of the shoes.

In an exclusive interview with Meets Obsession, the Chilean designer tells us about her inspiration behind the recent collaboration with Anthropologie, “This Fall I had the chance to collaborate with Anthropologie, and create these specially made pieces, handcrafted at our atelier in Santiago de Chile. I have long been inspired by the work of South American artisans, along with the powerful geography of these countries” said Briones.

The collection is an embodiment of all Briones’ obsessions; hand-made woven leather, mixing colors that are reminiscent of traditional woven café chairs and  her time spent in Buenos Aires.

The Barbara Briones for Anthropologie collection retails from $298 for the Slung Shades T-Straps to $498 for the Color Weave Slingbacks.
