CROSS SECTION: What would you imagine you had if you walked into a room with Missy Elliot, Chloe Sevigny, Christina Aguilera, Boy George and Linda Evangelista in it? Us, we'd assume that the glorious moment of revolution had come, and that this was merely the first fruits of the vans driving out in the streets to round up those who will be sent to re-education (we're being too kind - education camps); but it turns out we'd be wrong. They are, apparently, all you need to represent everybody in the world. That's according to MAC comestics President John Dempsey, who said they'd been chosen as the new spokesteam for Viva Glam, the Aids benefit make up because they represent the "many faces of AIDS patients — all ages, all races, all sexes." Reassuring for Asia to hear that they're exempt from Aids, and wonderful news that only young people are likely to be living with disease. On one hand, it's great that Viva Glam has earned USD32million for various Aids charities over the years; on the other, cultural insensitive much?
