Pinspiration of the Week: 16 Summer Beauties

As a sunshine devotee, summer solstice is one of my favorite days of the year. Sadly, most of us don't engage in any ancient midsummer rituals anymore (drinking beers at your neighbor's bonfire doesn't count).

The behind-the-scenes video of the shoot shows the ridiculous lengths some women go for beauty. Meisel juxtaposes flashy scenes of a blood facial (cough, Kimmie K.), butt cupping (which Jennifer Aniston just got busted for doing at a recent red carpet event), a tanning bed, and then your classic facial, mani/pedi, and hair coloring.   read more
