Caption of a photograph:

"Selena Gomez"

"Another star who _went full sternum_ at the CR Fashion Book party, Selena
glams up the look in a satin Louis Vuitton halter jumpsuit."

Oddly, this mag and its competitor, Star, routinely refer to less extreme
display of the feminine thorax as "cleavage," even though only the
breastbone is visible, the boobage being of no consequence.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
