The 2007 Skinnies Awards

Honoring epidermal excellence in entertainment.
2006 seemed to be the year of addiction. Alcohol was blamed on anti-Semitic rants and the inappropriate text messaging of Congressional pages.
Anger management was volunteered when a comedian spewed a racist tirade. Appropriately, addiction pops up in this year's Skinnies. Whether addicted to excess sun exposure, cosmetic treatments, or the overuse of a lice cream, all can be found in the current categories. And so, without further ado, on to the recognition of celebrity dermatology do's and don't-even-think-it's, the 2007 Skinnies Awards!
