Solange Magnano, 37-year-old model and former Miss Argentina, died of complications resulting from elective surgery on her buttocks. Dr. Gabruel Chiu of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery pondered what could have caused Magnano's death, saying "An injected material — either fat or silicone — would have to enter a large vein in sufficient amounts to cause a pulmonary embolism. This is extremely rare, especially in fat transfer. It is more likely that she developed a blood clot that traveled to cause her embolism."
It's unfortunate that Magnano felt she had to undergo plastic surgery in order to make herself more bootylicious. While we're well aware of The Power of the Butt — our god-given behind has drawn lots of eyeballs to it — there are limits to the lengths women should go in order to make themselves more attractive to others.
Especially when it seems that men have a soft spot for our natural beauty.
Which is why we thought it necessary to point out all the things your boyfriend loves about your bod, head to toe, and sans bling.
1) Our hair.
The way it smells faintly of our vanilla-scented shampoo all day long. The way it hangs demurely over our eyes, just begging to be brushed behind a dainty little ear. The way it shimmers, making it nearly impossible for him to resist running his fingers through its deliciously soft expanse.
2) Our eyes.
Debbie Gibson once sang, "I get lost in your eyes." Well, our eyes are pretty mesmerizing as well, whether or not we've been able to master that whole smokey eye look.
3) Our skin.
How soft and smooth it is, calling out for a caress or two, or perhaps some heavy groping. It's one of the reasons men will always prefer sexy time with us to sexy alone time with their huge porn collection: The feel of skin on skin just can't be beat.
4) Our clavicle and the curve of our neck.
Something about the clavicle is just irresistible to men. Perhaps it's the concavity of it, which makes it perfectly shaped for a quick inhale of our natural scent, or a lingering kiss. We don't mind this at all, as this part of our body is a major erogenous zone.
5) Our belly button.
We don't understand it. After all, men have belly buttons, too. Perhaps we're just better at cleaning out the lint. (Kidding! Just kidding!)
6) Our curves.
The strength in our calves. The small of our back. Our generous hips that shimmy as we walk, and our grabbable booty. Everything about the way we're shaped screams Woman! to the men in our lives. For god's sake, don't shrink it with surgery. Work it!
7) Our boobage.
Okay. Technically, this shoud be counted in with our curves, but the boobs hold an allure for men that is unmatched by any other part of our body. They like to stare at them. They like to touch them. They like to put their mouth on them. They like to use them as pillows. It doesn't matter what size they are. I swear to you. Just the fact that you have them makes men crazy.
