At this clinic patients must make cleaning as part of their rehabilitation program. And other activities such as horseback riding or doing yard work. And so Lindsay touched grab the plunger and get to cleaning toilets installation.

Apparently, the actress does not like to clean it and passes with dark glasses because he sees no good face on the decision to clean your own bathroom as part of their rehabilitation liquor consumption . Instead, she hired toronto cleaning services. Too bad that is not happy, is not it?

Lindsay is one of the 12 patients there interned there, six men and six women, unlike their other international, now she is completely isolated from the world, without access to your cell phone or the Internet . The phone calls are monitored and the use of computers is suspended.

A woman tied to clinical and Lohan revealed the daily activities with patients in the clinic run by Mormons:

6:30 Walk along the river
08:00 Breakfast
8:30 cleanliness Room and platitudes
9:00 Meetings with therapists

Photographers, between myth and scandal

Annie Leibovitz received the Prince of Asturias award from Don Felipe

The chroniclers who abuse the iconic adjective referring not have to do it not for certain artists. Between glamor and controversy, we looked at the works and legends that have surrounded six of the leading photographers of our time. 

They spent 18 h of October 25 when Annie Leibovitz arrived at the Campoamor theater in Oviedo to collect the Prince of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities 2013. started remembering, without naming, partner, the late writer Susan Sontag, who preceded her in this same theater ten years ago. The day before, with its compact Canon G16, prints anonymous Asturian bagpipers and decked got along and said he would use the occasion to propose you a portrait of Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia.

In his ‘should’: Elvis Presley escaped him. In his ‘having’: was chosen by Isabel II to pose for Buckingham. He immortalized Richard Nixon leaving the White House and the Obama family accustomed to it. And Sting covered with mud. And Carl Lewis in heels. Annie Leibovitz (Connecticut, USA, 1949), who has done almost everything in his career, takes half the world on the retina since childhood: his father was a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force and traveled from one military base to another. She studied Fine Arts and knew he wanted to be a photographer from you soon. Therefore, in his address to collect the Prince of Asturias, Leibovitz thanked the magazine ‘Rolling Stone’ that had ‘ taken seriously, as seriously as a girl could be taken in a magazine photographer of the 70 ‘. 

However, the young woman signed which has been considered the best cover of ‘Rolling Stone’ in 40 years: John Lennon Yoko Ono hugged naked, days before he died . It will be in ‘Vanity Fair’ magazine I began working as official portraitist in 1983, where he gets his most famous photographs: Bruce Springsteen’s ass in a Texas worn that used for the album Born in the USA, George W. Bush with his team after the 11-S, the trio of handsome George Clooney Matt Damon-Daniel-Craig, the first photo of Suri Cruise, Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy on a bed … The list of celebrities immortalized by Leibovitz is interminable.
Therefore, one of the best definitions of its significance can be read in Vogue: “Annie Leibovitz is the most famous photographer of our time and photographer of the most famous people of our time”. An artist whose work has been exhibited in . the National Portrait Gallery in London and Washingtonhas three daughters, two minor fruit of a surrogate,and nine books collected his work, one of which, ‘Annie Leibovitz: Life of a fotógrafa.1990-2005′ He has visited Spain in the form of exposure.Mario Testino
The other big celebrity immortalizing just been rightly recognized is Mario Testino (Lima, 1954).When greeted David Beckham during a wedding in England, in April 2011, he could not help noticing that the player medal proudly wore the official of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. At that time, while William and Catherine married, Testino not know that he was about to join the order.

Queen Elizabeth II has awarded this year for his “contribution to photography and charity” , both capitalized on the official note of Her Gracious Majesty. The announcement was made ​​public in August and finally, a few days ago, the High Commissioner of Peru presented him with the medal.

Mario Testino has a long and warm relationship with Windsor. It started when he was chosen by Diana of Wales for a series of portraits published Vanity Fair in 1997, shortly before his death. Also his engagement photos between William and Catherine, for which session used the same background music Lady Di.

Most of the portraits made ​​to Windsor, including the official Prince Charles, have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London. And is that being a photographer Testino began in the capital of the Thames. It came with 22 years, having started studies in economics in their country and with intent to continue them. But fashion is crossed his path.

Still, when he ran out of savings, their beginnings were difficult. He got paid an apartment in an abandoned hospital near Trafalgar Square, putting drinks in a bar first and taking pictures of aspiring models later. For £ 25, including a hair salon and makeup. A striking pink dyed hair in vibrant London punk what became known. His talent and a visit from some publishers Vogue UK the restaurant where he worked, did the rest.

His relationship with ‘fashion bible’, French Vogue, began in 1995. In February of that year signed his first cover and already has 56. In addition, two top owe almost everything are his’ realism luxury ‘as Peruvian style known. This is Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss. The Brazilian, top best paid in the world, rose to the Olympus of fashion because the photographer trusted her and convinced bookers, media and brands of their potential.

Something similiar happened to David Coote – Wedding Photographer Belfast: “Mario took me to a new level of glamor. I think nobody saw me in any way a sexy model before he did. He was the architect of my transformation. Before he came along, I was just a girl grunge aesthetic. He looked at me with different eyes, “says the model. He met Galliano after a fashion, made ​​her cover of Vogue in 1999 and since then, it is common to see them sharing front row. He was their wedding photographer in July 2011.

Two years ago, Taschen published by Mario Testino Kate Moss showing “two decades of extraordinary friendship, and phenomenal glamor.” Peru has published a dozen books.The last, also with Taschen, is the last September: ‘Mario Testino: In your face’. Testino has worked for Burberry, Gucci, Versace, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferragamo, Hugo Boss and Michael Kors. His are the official portraits of Nicholas of Greece, William and Maxima of the Netherlands, Haakon and Mette-Marit of Norway and King Abdullah of Jordan.Maybe that’s why the British press calls it ‘the king of real photographers’.

The prolific Testino created earlier this year in Peru inspired capsule collection for net-a-porter.com. A percentage of sales will be donated to the Mario Testino Association (MATE), an institution that promotes art and Peruvian culture and preserves his own work.Returning to his medal, Queen Elizabeth has recognized it professional values ​​and solidarity.

Among the first, is Doctor Emeritus of the University of Arts in London, has the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award , the Tiradentes Medalha Rio de Janeiro, the Order of Merit of Lima and British Walpole Medal of Excellence. In terms of second, in 2008 began operation in the area of AIDS and opened a clinic in Chincha (Peru) with Save The Children, built thanks to the sale of an edition of the portraits he did to Lady Di. Today collaborates with Elton John Aids Foundation, Sargent Cancer Care, Naked Heart Foundation and amfAR.

Richard Avedon 
Richard Avedon (New York, 1923 – San Antonio, Texas, 2004) shares many of the characteristics that define Leibovitz and Testino. It began as a photographer in the merchant navy and says he came to make a hundred thousand portraits of sailors. In the 50s it became fashionable,becoming director of photography for ‘Harper’s Bazaar’, perhaps the best of the decade. Fleeing the typecasting, Avedon became involved in 70 on a personal and professional epic: portraying the other side of the American dream. In ‘In the american west’ from 1979 to 1984, includes the tired faces of anonymous individuals from all social.

Richard Avedon also worked for ‘Vogue’, ‘Life’ and ‘Look’ and it’s ‘The Beatles Portfolio’ and the famous portraits of Marlon Brando shaving, Marilyn Monroe among tired and melancholy, Ingrid Bergman thoughtful, Picasso looking at the sky and Malcolm X. The main feature of focus: the neutral background after a masterful command of black and white. Oh, and no smiles. He also managed to break the hieratic of the Dukes of Windsor in 1957. A portrait of Les said he had just run over a dog. Terry Richardson Across the glamor, but no success, is Terry Richardson (New York, 1965). On the agenda of the ‘smartphone’ there possibly as many relevant phone in Testino. However, his style has nothing to do. Terry Richardson has become personal stamp photograph their VIPs with his glasses features. From Cameron Diaz Angela Lansbury, does so with all.

He is the excess. With a past in which there are drugs and schizophrenia, it came to portraying the agony of his mother, so spoiled, though. Richardson has signed some of the most controversial fashion campaigns, such as Sisley, that could be a model lashing the bare buttocks of a boy. His is the cover of Lady Gaga dressed in Vogue steaks and more sexually explicit Miley Cyrus to date . But beware: not all of them amuses Richardson. He has been accused of being a pig or have said they would not work with him more models Mia Rasmussen, Jamie Peck and Coco Rocha.

In any case, the obvious hooliganism Richardson is not incompatible with the talentand work for Diesel, Gucci, Sisley, Tom Ford, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg,Emporio Armani, Jimmy Choo, YSL and published in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar , and V Purple Fashion magazine. His work is collected in seven books, the first is Hysteric Glamour (1998) and last, Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson (2011).

Oliviero Toscani
Even if a photographer who seeks controversy as house brand, is the Italian Oliviero Toscani (Milan, 1942). There is no other reason to put before the camera to a priest and a nun as attractive as false giving a kiss, in order to advertise a firm Benetton. Or choose a exmodelo with an amazing anorexia for Nolita. Toscani studied photography in Zurich, has worked for Esprit, Valentino, Chanel and Fiorucci and the photos we could see them in Elle, Vogue, Lei, Donna, GQ and Mademoiselle.
Robert Mapplethorpe
Another great linked to the scandal name is Robert Mapplethorpe (New York, 1946 – Boston, 1989). . His portraits of nudes in black and white made ​​him famous and large doses of explicit sex, reviled It started with a polaroid to portray the most colorful characters of ‘underground’ New Yorker.

That era is his series of singer Patti Smith. In 1978, X Portfolio published with sadomasochistic images, and Y Portfolio, with flowers and still lifes. The first caused no little controversy,including processing the director of the Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, for “obscenity and pornography.” Three years later he published the Z Portfolio, which focuses on muscular black men. It is fair to say that if Mapplethorpe was known for his taste for provocation, reached the summit for its magnificent portraits.

Truce historical facts, there are several famous accountants who have made a career as an accountant, you will find some interesting surprises on this list.

The dangers of advertising with celebrities on the Twitter era

The Chanel advertising team may have noticed that the perfume ad starring Brad Pitt, the actor appears in distress due to a probable existential crisis, maybe not exactly a brilliant piece of marketing. The ad, filmed in black and white, shows-meditative and Brad Pitt with beard alone in a room. “It’s a trip,” says crestfallen. “Journeys end, but we continue to tour the world, and we turn to him plans fade; triumph dreams But wherever you go, there you are.. My fate, my destiny, my fortune.”.

The ad went viral, but not for the reason they expected Chanel executives.Ridiculed by the pretentious and esoteric tone, the commercial was parodied by Conan O’Brien on the show Saturday Night Live and “virtually everyone on the Internet,” according to The Huffington Post .

The announcement, however, is only the latest in a series of failures related to celebrities hired to promote a brand-sometimes-but soaring amounts that end up being ridiculed on social media and thereby hurting the brand should be promoting. Sometimes the fault of the marketing campaign; other times, celebrity just ruining the brand message, inadvertently or for misbehavior.

The pace and content of social media has hindered the work of managing brand image, and have a celebrity to be your spokesperson increases the degree of risk involved, notes Patti Williams , a marketing professor at Wharton. “Traditionally, the celebrity involved in the ad and brand relationship ended there,” he says. “Now, calls to celebrities who interact with customers the company in other ways. This occurs through the media of the company or celebrity on your Twitter account or Facebook, for example. The nature of advertising backed by a celebrity is a proposed 360 degrees, and that is the cause of most of the risks. “

Take the case of Jessica Simpson, he would have received $ 4 million to be spokesperson for Weight Watchers. Your participation joke ended becoming second pregnancy due to unexpected, rumors of Simpson-respect on the Internet for several weeks until she confirmed suspicions by Twitter-, hampering plans to lose weight. “In the past, the disadvantages of these collaborations were relatively limited: it could be an ad that did not go well and that was the topic of conversation with friends,” says Williams. “Today, when something goes wrong, the situation does not end the failed ad, the rejection of the message comes to life. Backing celebrity can quickly become the subject of massive joke. Might not permanently affect the brand but can impair short-term. “

The strength of a celebrity

The celebrity endorsement is a marketing tool consecrated. The theory is that if you borrow a little glitter of celebrity, it will make people aware and interested in a certain product. Apparently, the strategy works: a 2011 study published in the Journal of Advertising analyzed the support of athletes and found some brands that generated a 4% increase in revenue (about U.S. $ 10 million per year in the aggregate sales branded products) and a 0.25% increase in dividends.

“Two schools of thought compete for choosing the right celebrity for your brand,” says Barbara Kahn , director of the Trade Jay H. Baker [ Jay H. Baker Retailing Center ] at Wharton. “One of them says to choose a celebrity to evoke positive emotions in the target market. Should be someone with great power of attraction, someone to give that talk, a nice person. The second says you should choose someone who fits with the product or understand some of it. That gives credibility. “

In a way, the rise of the Internet has increased the value of celebrity endorsements. As marketing staff wants to conquer a beautiful share the ability to increasingly shorter attention of consumers, a spokesman of weight can help the brand gain visibility. “It’s hard to win the attention of people in the midst of confusion and commotion,” says Kahn. “It was hard before, but now the situation has worsened. Celebrities, right or wrong, draw attention.”

In the segment of social media, celebrities have more prestige and influence that brands. On Twitter, for example, Justin Bieber has 34.5 million followers, and Oprah Winfrey, 16.6 million. The stars of the reality shows also have impressive numbers: Kim Kardashian has 17.3 million followers, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, six million. Brands, however, even the most popular and trying to convey a “modern” image generally have far fewer followers.Starbucks has 3.4 million followers on Twitter, Rolling Stones and has 2.3 million Gap, 177,000.

No wonder, therefore, that advertisers are increasingly resorting to the strength of social networks and celebrities to attract the consumer. After all, Internet users spend more time on social networks than on any other web site, as noted a report last year Nielson, media measurement company. The report showed that 20% of the time people spend on the computer desktop is dedicated to social channels, and 30% of the time spent on mobile devices is spent on social networks. About 17% of the time consumers spend on the PC it does on Facebook, which is still the mark of Internet and mobile app success in the U.S., according to a report by comScore, specializing in digital business measurements.

Celebrities are valuable to advertisers, but their fans are also important in social media sites, says another study by Nielson. The study found that 64% of U.S. adults online that follow a celebrity also follow a brand, and that the subject is a celebrity that has four times more likely to follow a brand than the average U.S. adult online. The Nielson study showed that these people also tend to give advice and opinions frequently other online consumers.

“The celebrity endorsement acts as a signal or trigger,” says Mark Bonchek, founder of Orbit + Co, company social media strategies for near Boston, Massachusetts. “People are looking for a signal. If they see a celebrity like [endorsing a product], that sends a signal that the product is good and becomes part of the conversation of consumers when they talk about a brand or product” .

Although that kind of talk from client to client it is something that companies want, it is also a risky proposition when you migrate to the digital world: what is said during a casual or around water machine office meeting is very different from what is said in a social network like Facebook, used by one in seven people on the planet. About three-quarters of social media users say they visit social networking sites to know the experiences of others with different brands, Nielson reports. Of these, about 65% require more information on products and services offered by the marks; 53% want to praise a brand and 50% want to express your concern or complain about brands and services.

“Social media allows the consumer to speak with other people, that can be positive or negative,” says David Reibstein , a marketing professor at Wharton. “If you have a good or funny ad, or a celebrity really weight the impact social media can be much higher. However, there is a disadvantage in that too. If your brand gives a false step, or is there a celebrity who is inconsistent or impairs the mark, could have major negative impact [...] ‘There is no bad publicity, “says an old adage. Actually, it is not so. Every company wants people to talk about their brand, but want to do so in a positive or neutral manner. “

24 hours a day, 7 days a week

The progress of technology and the rapid pace with which information spreads have hampered the work of enterprises, which aims to ensure that the conversation about your brand is always “positive or neutral.” A famous spokesman gives extra confidence to the brand, says Reibstein. With social media, “the potential of public opinion is greater,” he says. “Just someone kick that exposure to become part of the news cycle 24 hours a day seven days a week during a photo of a celebrity [in an unwelcome situation].”

Like all of us, celebrities also have their weaknesses and errors of judgment.Unlike us, however, these errors of judgment are shredded in detail. When she is “brand ambassador”, that behavior becomes a big problem. Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history, lost sponsorship from Kellogg after a photo of him smoking marijuana appeared in News of the World . Tiger Woods lost the sponsorship of Tag Heuer, Gillette, Accenture, Gatorade and other companies after it was discovered that he had several extramarital affairs with numerous women. More recently, Nike, Oakley and other major sponsors withdrew their sponsorship of the South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius after he was accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp during a domestic dispute.

When celebrity in the news, “social media spend to feed the news cycle,” saysJonah Berger , Wharton marketing professor and author of Contagious: The Secret Behind Why Things Catch On . “Everyone wants to know what’s new and what’s happening. In politics, a hitch goes unnoticed. Ditto in advertising.”

Berger says that the tradition of American artists frontline Sites make announcements about what product do not advertise in the U.S. is old. In Japan, Natalie Portman made an announcement of a product for hair; George Clooney made propaganda Honda and Brad Pitt made an announcement of Softbank. When there was no sharing sites like YouTube social media, those celebrities “did not believe that such publicity would prejudice the heritage of its brand in the U.S., because no one would see at home,” notes Berger. Now, however, “anyone with an Internet connection can see it.”

Social media give celebrities “more rope with which to hang himself,” saysAmericus Reed , a marketing professor at Wharton. “It has leveled the playing field in which people disseminate information, a subject with a mobile is a potential journalist. So any story can hold and last much longer.”

But the mistakes of a celebrity who is endorsing a product is not damaged so needed the image of a product definitively says Reed, who has done research in the area of ​​”moral disengagement”, ie the way in which the consumer justifies supporting a brand whose reputation has been tarnished. “Your immediate reaction is to blame the company for the offense of a celebrity. However, that mistake could harm the company for some time.”

Reed and others say that companies should be well prepared for possible bad behavior of the person who will represent your brand before it’s contaminated. “You should think of it as an opportunity to anticipate the story,” says Reed. “Da’s work today deal with celebrities who are spokespersons of the company.’s Undertaking must be more attentive to what is happening, because rumors of a possible crisis often spread very fast. Many companies have” control rooms Social Media “which monitor the blogosphere and can intervene before something happens. problems can be avoided before they become viral.”

Another challenge arising from the support of a celebrity in the era of social media is the difficulty of creating a perfect marketing message. It is not easy to conceal faults, because “there is always a ‘second release,” says Erik Qualman, Professor of Digital Marketing Hult International Business School.”There are always comments on the ads [on Facebook, Twitter and other channels.] The brand seeks to understand what is being said. Currently, many companies place their ads on YouTube for the Super Bowl a few days before the game. According to the response obtained, analyzed what had the best answer. It’s a smart decision. “

If the marketing team of Chanel had analyzed the situation that way, perhaps the traditional media and social media have not had the opportunity to mock the announcement of Brad Pitt so cruelly. In the past, the company, private equity, managed to leverage non-traditional media with several “short” of her perfume Chanel No. 5 ads lush several minutes long featuring actresses like Nicole Kidman and Audrey Tautou. The fact that the ads were so well received may have been the cause of massive rejection of the ad with Brad Pitt, Williams says Wharton. “The error was raised by social media. Believe that, ironically, it was due to that Chanel had previously done an extraordinary job in Social Media Management . Their success and acceptance in social media made it more susceptible to failure.”

Confused speech Clint Eastwood at the GOP National Convention last year is another such case, she said. During the speech, Eastwood devoted much time to talk to an empty chair representing President Barack Obama. “In the past, the next day’s newspapers have commented on the fact, and experts had complained. SNL have satirized the event. But with social media, the situation became a meme that took own life, “says Williams. “In an instant, someone created a Twitter account: ‘Invisible Obama’ Social media makes this kind of thing prendan.”.
