Girl Talk: This column made me cry...
Frances Whiting is my favourite part of The Sunday Mail's U on Sunday. This is why...

Blokes have such a big part to play in making women feel tops about themselves, no matter where they're at. A little bit of positive reinforcement goes a long way. These guys are legends. High fives. In stark contrast, Richard Burton once said of his wife, the late Elizabeth Taylor, whom he married twice: "The most beautiful woman in the world is absolute nonsense. She has wonderful eyes, but she has a double chin and an overdeveloped chest, and she’s rather short in the leg."

Over at Italian Vogue, another perspective on women's body angst: Franca Sozanni blames Facebook for an increase in eating disorders. Nothing said about the sexist Italian culture or fashion world or Karl Lagerfeld and how those influences filter into young girls' online worlds and makes them Photoshop their Facebook photos or develop insecurities. Perspective? Yes, please!
