D winter 2014 the vice issue Jealous, kill someone. Hungry, stuff your face. Happy, show it off. In love, let the world know. Struggling, get angry! Lazy, stay on the couch. Feeling overwhelmed, love yourself. All of these feelings are one of the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. These sins are the main base of the Christian religion and its golden rules. These seven capital sins define the borderline between what is good and what is evil. In this issue of i-D, you will see how transgression against one’s self, plays a role in the foundation of the seven deadly sins. While you turn the pages in this vice issue, you will see how people today refer to the seven deadly sins to help design a more productive and positive model for their lifestyle. Open your mind to uncover and see how we collaborated with photographers who have mastered the perfection of capturing emotions that go into expressing the most deadly sins. Read the featured interviews by the very talented makeup artist, Brittany Taliaferro, who couldn’t have done a better job helping us explore beauty in wrath, sloth and pride. Another interview by Honor Beeler, who took her camera into the depths of the aquatic to reveal why envy is the real queen of resentment. We also take you through the habits of several internet shopaholics to better illustrate how we have interpreted the seven sins in a modern way. We want to show everyone that the sins still apply in today’s world, despite their heritage from the beginning of Christianity. As we take you through a journey that depicts each of the seven deadly sins, you begin to realize that they act as a great reference point that people use to gage their behaviors. They are the true forms of pleasure we so badly want to ignore; they are the emotions, desires, and cravings that ignite that can’t stop, won’t stop attitude. It’s like a fire has been awakened within you, you go to that place where you can no longer control yourself-that place where you no longer care.

lust is more gullible than innocence TEXT SOFIA MOLINARO

lust breaks down our walls of trust to reveal a form of nakedness and vulnerability that parallels the innocence of a child Lust is about possession and greediness of oneself, an intense form of unrestrained sexual craving or overwhelming desire. Lust is what we take from another person to self-satisfy ourselves, when instead love is about giving yourself to a significant other. Lust enslaves us to the senses, to the animal’s part of man. Lust deadens our spiritual senses so we cannot hear God telling us what is wrong. Not one person will ever be perfect or sinless while still being on this earth, but yet it is still a goal we attempt to succeed in. So can we really say that being lost in lust is really a sin? We can argue both sides. Lust is a disordered desire for sexual pleasure. As human beings we desire sexual pleasure; transforming it as not a sin but a desire for two souls to meet that instinct naturally desire a unique sexual union to keep the human race going. These feelings

properties that define the human instinct. Forgiveness or no forgiveness we are all humans and it is human intuitive to desire sexual partners to share our love with. We can argue the fact that we are all born with different beliefs and cultures; we are all prone to believe in something that we have been taught to believe in. Some might strongly believe that lust can be seen as a normal practice of life experiences. A road we are supposed to follow in order to experience new life learning events. Or perhaps exactly because lust shows that it is normal human instinct, we should be able to make our own decisions and decide that we are okay with living inside a sin. Lust is a necessity in a relationship. Too much lust can be seen healthy if controlled, but not enough of it can create a separation

within us become sinful when we cannot resist the temptation becoming a disorder when we participate in sexual relations outside of marriage as a form of pleasure. Marriage helps us run from lust, teaching us to be more loving people and not view others as merely objects to fulfill our sexual pleasures and desires. Could this be because lust can destroy the whole notion of love and giving that love to only one person? Or could it be that lust is supposed to be part of our lives in order to find that one true love? But at the end of the day we were all created to love and seek love in someone else, and if we don’t know how to love we eventually learn how to love. Lust is selfish. The selfishness lies within the using of another person to fulfill our sexual needs and desires by abolishing our capabilities to being able to love somebody. Lust is able to contaminate our body and soul causing us to use other people and damage our own souls. It is written in the New Testament, that ‘each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire conceives and brings forth sin, and when sin reaches maturity it gives birth to death’. But we were all fashioned to die at some point and lust will be the one to lead us first to that death point. If we are all destined to die, then should we just live in sin anyways? We have all sinned in our lives, so does it really matter if we ask for forgiveness and just live with sin until we die? At the end of the day we make our own decisions and it is those decisions that define really who we are. In the dictionary words to describe lust in its best form are: longing, desire, passion, yearning, and craving, which are all

between both individuals causing a detachment. Lust also causes us to think irrationally, in unreasonable and illogical ways, causing us to make decisions based on what our mind tells us, instead of our heart. Our mind will tell us to do what we desire or feel in the moment, but our heart will always tell us what’s logical and right to do in the long run. It is unhealthy to ignore signs that our body gives us. Ignorance will lead to anger and anger will lead to thinking irrationally causing us make decisions based on our desires and feelings. Most individuals make this mistake. Relationships fall when one starts to get too comfortable with one another, which will eventually bring boringness to the relationship. If lust is present in this kind of situation then the relationship will never fail because lust keeps passion and connection within one another. But with lust we miss all of the warning signs in a relationship. We have the tendencies to associate events to our personal experiences. So just like music. Artists compose songs that we can somehow personally relate to; therefore the presence of this thought becomes personal and stronger to us. As we look at the generation we live in today lust is everywhere, it is in music, entertainment, and our daily lives. We live in a society that is addicted to sex. An era where people feel free to expose their bodies and do what feels right, a time filled with sensuality and sex, we learn that lust is a powerful emotion within oneself. It has the authority to make one-feel butterflies in the stomach or miserable through the consequences. Lust is vice that yearns to be felt. @sofiamolinaro

the many forms of gluttony TEXT SOFIA MOLINARO

there may be no love that is sincerer than food, but a gluttonous desire can appear in a thousand different forms Behind every margin, there is a transgression. The stricter your margins, the more you are tempted to transgress. The more you construct a form of disorder in your daily life, the less you will feel the need to transgress. For instance a small piece of chocolate saves the need to lapse in bigger matters. To be able to keep a balanced diet, small disorders are needed to keep stability. Therefore do not let your temptations posses you completely, because remember that gluttony kills more than the sword! From time to time we all have food cravings, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But what we don’t know is that almost 90% of the time food cravings derive from our minds. Therefore when we specifically crave a certain type of food, it‘s because that food is not present in our daily diet, causing our minds to overanalyze the need for this food. New research shows that this comes from specific areas of the brain responsible for memory and sensing pleasure. These areas are trigger points that are to blame for developing (unhealthy) food cravings. The hippocampus, insula, and caudate, are areas within the brain that spark the yearning of these food cravings that we can absolutely not live without. But don’t worry because there is actually a way to stop you from the desire to eat foods that are particularly high in fat and sugar. All you have to do is simply block the opiate receptors in the brain, which are our pleasure senses, and BAM food cravings gone! But emotion and desire are factors that go way beyond the physiological reasons for food cravings. When you are stressed or anxious is when your cravings shoot to the sky, causing you to crave the ultimate enemy - carbohydrates. It is simple; when your diet lacks in variety of foods, it leads to more food cravings, therefore be careful not to overlook the obvious. It’s not just sugar or carbohydrates that our bodies crave, but mostly the fat within the foods that cause this feeling of necessity. When looking at the specific types of food that are normally desired by people, almost all of them contain more fat than carbohydrates. It is important to make smart decisions. Make better choices for yourself by deciding to choose the more nutritional dishes instead of the high in fat options when looking for something to satisfy your food cravings. At the end of the day we are

all humans and we need some form of sugar or fat in our diets. The common mistake most people make is skipping meals and waiting too many hours before the next meal. This causes our bodies to get so hungry that it ends up wanting us to overeat in order to compensate. It is during this state of extreme hunger that our bodies end up craving quick-fix foods high in sugar or fat like candy bars. A way to fight this type of craving is by eating more often. When you eat several meals a day you are always having your metabolism in motion, therefore your body actually burns more fat and is healthier. The best way to calm our bodies is to nurture them. Gluttony is a sin. We become guilty of gluttony when we use food or drink in a form that can injure our wellbeing or damage our mind. We eat to nourish our bodies; not for satisfaction. Eating itself is not a sin, but if one eats in a manner that is over aggressive, then it turns into something sinful and evil. Poor eating habits like indulging or constant eating are forms of pleasure that trigger junk food inhalation, which will eventually devastate the human body. Wanting more pleasure from something than it is made for or wanting it exactly our way, transforms into a sin. It does happen to become so caught up in a certain type of pleasure, that we eventually cannot appreciate other things and are ready to sacrifice other indulgences for one. When we think about gluttony, we automatically associate it with fat or obesity; the act of not being able to resist any type of temptation or not being capable of controlling yourself from overeating excessively. It is a continuous cycle, we indulge and famish and indulge again. When indulging ourselves we consume huge amounts of food in a short quantity of time and in a helpless manner. We enter gluttony when we request additional desire from something than it was created for. Gluttony is always thought that it only pertains to food, but it also pertains to not being able to have enough of other forms of pleasure like, companionship, sex, entertainment or games. Being able to control our cravings and temptations will free us from sin. @sofiamolinaro

the present-day sloth TEXT ERICKA MCGRIFF

is one still a sloth if they are well-dressed and classy? It’s a Friday night, and I have two options: either go out for a night on the town with my girls, or stay at home bundled up, with my computer in my lap, eyes glued to my computer screen, watching Netflix. After about a 2-minute deliberation on what I wanted to do (if you know me, you know it was a no brainer) I choose to stay at home and watch Netflix. But then again if you know a college student (or any modern day human being) you know this is nothing new. It might not be a Friday night, or even the weekend, but you come to realize that many people chose to stay home and watch Netflix any day of the week. You have so many options for online streaming from Amazon Instant Video, to Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or if you’re a rebel you find it randomly in the gigantic sphere the Internet is. The Internet has taken over how modern day people not only interact, but also view their content. The rise of online streaming is at an all time high, from the array of options for viewing media, to the amount of content it provides, it clearly is winning the fight against television viewing, as online streaming is here to stay. But see, the problem does not really arise binge watch. Binge watching (or now, better known as widespread marathon-viewing sessions, or netflixing) what defines as the ability “to watch (multiple videos, episodes of a TV show, etc.) in one sitting or over a short period of time.” This problem can arise suddenly and before you know it you don’t even know what you did. It usually happens so quickly you realize seven hours later, that you just spent your entire day staring at your computer screen watching, eating, drinking, addicted to whatever has your attention span for that long of a time. You cannot control yourself. It has the same effect that happens when you binge on anything, (in the same way that binge-drinking or binge-shopping are not activities done in moderation) except once you get going you cannot/do not want to stop. You find yourself doing the exact same thing, the next weekend, better yet the next day if you’re lucky enough not to have anything to do. But the problem continues to grow as you find yourself in multiply dilemmas. For instance, you start watching a show at 8pm, saying to yourself that you wont be long, you’ll only watch 4 episodes, only 2 hours

worth, but then you check your clock and its 2am. You panic realizing that you just spent a good 6 hours doing relatively nothing... And if your like me you might be sh*ting your pants, fathoming that you only have 5 hours until you have to wake up again for an 8am meeting. And then you factor into your time frame that it will mostly likely take you 30minutes to an hour to actually fall asleep, and you frantically try to count sheep, count to 100, anything at this point that will help you fall asleep. With addictions, its always always a must to find someone to blame, and in this case its no different, I obviously blame Netflix, the king of all online streaming. I think they should fire the genius who came up with the idea of producing Orange Is The New Black, or House of Cards, the brilliant mind who one day said, ‘hey lets produce our own original content that can only be viewed on our network, and lets release it season by season rather than one episode at a time.’ Its like he was asking for people to become obsessive human beings, unable to control themselves, devouring a seasons worth of content in just days. But see, the moment when you know you’ve hit rock bottom is when suddenly the show your indulgenced in unexpectedly freezes and a gray box appears, giving you three options: to continue playing, play from beginning, or back to browse. Shame washes over you as even Netflix has pointed out that you’ve been watching a show too long. It’s like they’re saying “Hey there! We’ve noticed that you’ve been watching this show for a really…really long time. Are you sure-like one hundred percent sure- you want to keep watching?” Its like even Netflix has shamed you, and causes you to realize that your own television has judged you. It quickly turns into that thing where you tell yourself you’ll eat just one more cookie, then you convince yourself that you’ll go to the gym tomorrow so you eat one more, and then you look down and realize you’ve finished the entire box, and question your entire being. But how can one resist the availability of commercial-free, high-quality, right at your fingertips, at anytime of the day, content? You can’t so go ahead, uncontrollably binge watch your shows, live in the moment, and question yourself later. @erickawithack

plastic wrath TEXT ASHLEY CHAN

the extremities we endure to achieve a level of perfection deemed accurate by misconceptions Wrath is understood as the most vengeful of the seven sins in the way that it is the one most likely felt by others surrounding, and probably in a harmful way too. Wrath can be exerted in a multitude of ways, because it is an emotion that causes us to lose our composure and act in an aggressive manner that will most likely be regretted in the future. The topic that is to be discussed deals with wrath with one’s self image to the most extreme and the grand schemes people endure to get what they view as the “perfect” beauty. First off, there is the phenomenon that is Valeria Lukyanova, known to the public as “Human Barbie”. She is a 29 year old model of Ukrainian descent and she is most notable for her close resemblance to a Barbie doll—body figure, doll face, thinness, the whole nine yards. She has been in the Russian media several times and she has even posted images and videos online on her own to show people how similar she looks to a doll. Her appearance has attracted the attention of people all across the globe. However, her spotlight is not coming as admiration from the public. Many critics have called Lukyanova out as being a hoax hungry for media attention and have accused her of undergoing numerous plastic surgeries to attain her infamous Barbie doll look. She denies such accusations and admits that she did subject herself to breast augmentation, but the rest of her body remains natural. I am a little skeptical about her physique appearing the way that it does along with a good majority of other people out there. It is difficult to believe that her natural physical appearance is so similar to a Barbie in real human form. What I find even more intriguing than her physical appearance is her level of dissatisfaction with self. There are people out there who suffer from an internal struggle everyday with their physical appearance. There is no desire to be unique in her case. She wants to look like a plastic doll that she thinks is the epitome of womanly perfection. Oftentimes, people label women as the only ones who can subject themselves to being victims of vanity. This is false, because Justin Jedlica has configured his entire body

to mirror that of the Ken Barbie doll, which is the male counterpart to Valeria Lukyanova’s Barbie doll. Contrary to the typical storyline of the two falling in love, Human Ken actually disses Human Barbie after meeting at a photo shoot for not assuming her role as a human doll as seriously as he does. Having undergone over 140 different surgical procedures including lip augmentation and pectoral implants, Jedlica has assumed his new identity to an utmost extreme that far surpasses the efforts of Lukyanova. Jedlica first began with a nose job at 18 years old and has spent well over $100,000 to appear the way that he does now: plastic. He has been reported as saying that he has no plans to stop with the surgeries anytime in the near future. The struggle with self is probably the deadliest outcome of the wrath vice. In today’s day and age, the promotion of natural beauty is strong because views have shifted to where we create our own identity. But the mindsets of a more traditional view still have a specific image of beauty that clashes with the natural appearance. Thus a series of surgical procedures will be underway as people rush to attain the image that they deem as ideal. Justin Jedlica and Valeria Lukyanova are prime examples of humans who have grown up thinking that Barbie dolls are the spitting image of perfect and real humans should look like plastic perfection. So what it really boils down to is the anger they feel when they see a Barbie and their reflection in a mirror and the similarities are not exact. Wrath doesn’t always have to be as literal as it sounds. It is not limited to an emotion that is outwardly expressed upon others in a harmful manner. Or anger. Wrath can also be cultivated upon one’s own self simply through strong dissatisfaction. What we often overlook is the harm we can inflict upon ourselves through narrow mindedness such as is the case with the Human Barbie and Ken. Perhaps this is their way of coping with their inner struggles with physical appearance, but what is more is that they were unhappy with who they used to look like. They have made themselves molds of what they deem as the utmost beauty. @ashleyc

Self-importance, arrogance, conceit, egotism, and vanity, all words that relate to the feelings, emotions, and passion towards pride. There are several different definitions of pride. It can be referred to as a type of plant, a form of body decoration, or even a group of animals. The most commonly used definition is being proud, or having a feeling of great accomplishment. The word pride, (positive or negative) has had an effect on how we feel about ourselves. Self-pride is your sense of your own value or worth as a person. It is how much you like accepting, approving, and respecting yourself. The pride you have within yourself determines your success or failure in everything. It is not a black-andwhite thing. Pride like anything else has many shades of gray. It comes from a true commitment to what you have to do, from a sense of self-worth and personal ability. In order to develop pride, you need to believe in your self worth. You can recognize yourself as worthy and capable of loving and being loved. When you have pride in yourself and look your best, others will notice, but most importantly, you will feel empowered to accomplish more with a greater amount of vitality and satisfaction. You will demonstrate your selfworth to others as well as yourself. Always defeat the other with the power of beauty.
