Written By : Jessica Schirripa Recent headlines regarding celebrities and politics define social hypocrisy. My biggest issue has nothing to do with being anti-trump/pro-streep or vice verse, it’s that we live in a culture which encourages individuals to have a voice, the right to personal opinion, and be brave enough to stand up and share it, […]

Plans are in motion for celebs and designers as 2017 kicks off. They are obsessed with New Years Resolutions and are ready to make them a reality.

As E! Online reported this summer, Amy Schumer recently spoke about how she was given a trainer in preparation for her role in Trainwreck.

According to Vanity Fair, the Fashion Police star called Emily’s dress “repugnant.” He said, “This dress is so appallingly vulgar and revealing. Why wear anything?

Sometimes, Taraji drops serious truth bombs. When she sat down with some of her fellow stars from the upcoming movie Hidden Figures, she let the world know exactly how she feels about catty women.

Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea. Don’t you know that what you put out in the universe is what you receive sometimes? It’s pretty clear that’s how you and Jennifer Aniston feel about Angelina and Brad, but I’d be careful if I were you. Chelsea Handler, as per usual, went off on some crazed rant about Brangelina breaking […]

Remember when we were upset about the dreadlocks controversy at Marc Jacobs? Well here’s a legitimate reason why. The U.S. Court of Appeals recently decided that hairstyles are not “immutable traits” making it even harder for women of color to wear their hair how they want in the workplace, in fear that they will get […]

Usually, we’d see a Birkin or a Luggage Tote and say goals, but that is not the vibe in the retail industry right now. Luxury houses are always setting trends, but they aren’t meeting the sales goals they’ve set. BoF reported today that Hermes gave up on their sales forecast as a goal they could […]

We are total suckers for a good commercial, and this one from Gatorade took our breath away today. Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky WNBA team’s ad for the Win from Within campaign is insanely good. The ad starts with beautiful panoramic shots of Chicago and Donne explaining she feels as though her time […]

This monday she took a trip to Cheltenham’s All Saints Academy to talk to teenagers about body image. This was the first of many planned school talks she will hold on […]

Usually, high fashion magazines put the same old, same old on the covers. Even if the actress hasn’t been in a movie in ages, or doesn’t seem to particularly have anything interesting going on, if she’s mainstream approved, she gets a cover. So how refreshing is it to see Tracey Africa, fashion’s first African-American transgender […]

You probably remember the hit movie “Straight Outta Compton” last year, and if you’re super particular about things like the Bechdel test (like myself) then you probably also remember that there was little interaction with women in the movie other than talking about the men in their lives. As soon as the movie came out, Michel’le, […]

Remember when we praised H&M for having Ashley Graham in their Studio Collection ads and not making a big deal out of it? While the clothing wasn’t sold in stores, it was still a big step for a curve woman to the face of a non-curvy fashion line. Unfortunately today ABC has reported that H&M […]

Award shows are pretty much a snooze these days to me because it’s so predictable who the winners are going to be, and usually it really just depends on the year to get a really good mix of celebrities and movies and television shows represented. Luckily, this year’s Emmys happened to be one of the […]

Totally admitted, sometimes people get upset about stuff that’s pretty silly. Sometimes people read too much into things. But often, prejudice is just that, prejudice.

As the Daily Mail reported this weekend, Paola Torrente, the model who was runner up in the Miss Italy pageant, is being body shamed by a cruel internet troll.

There are a lot of designers out there that think appropriation is just a big word that gets thrown around when people of color are upset or being overly-sensitive. That kind of thinking couldn’t be further from the truth, and it’s spawned a lot of people to think that Marc Jacobs recent runway show which […]

Tiziana was 31 years old with an entire life ahead of her, but that has ended due to the world of slut shaming. Yes, it is true that Tiziana had a choice. She sent a video of her having sex to her ex-boyfriend, presumably thinking that he would keep it to himself. That was a […]

Everyone has inherent biases that go with us in our daily decisions, but this one really hurt. UNICEF did a social experiment with a young girl in Georgia that goes to show what you look like really does matter and determine how you’re treated. You, reader, obviously care somewhat about your projection to the world. […]

Body shaming, and trolling on the Internet has really taken a turn for the worse with celebrities like Mormani Kordei an Leslie Jones, but this week we’re glad to see that Normani Kordei has made a triumphant return to social media. Last month she shared that she was taking a break because people were attacking her […]

I can’t. Honestly, I just can’t. And Paige, I hope you read this. Yep. This is what Paige Shoemaker and her friend Sadie Meier thought it was okay to do. You know, it wouldn’t have been blackface if you just had a mask on. My friends and I do a Boscia mask together pretty frequently. […]

A fourth-grade Atlanta teacher named Patrice Brown has gone viral over the weekend because in the photo Brown is seen wearing a bodycon dress while in her classroom.

If you haven’t seen the video that’s going viral yet, a 19 year old was raped at a house party and was asked by a judge, “Why couldn’t you just keep your knees together?” Upon hearing this, I became instantly sick. I’m not even usually a crier, but I cried because this is a signal […]

This weekend Refinery29 reported that, according to a new study in the journal, Body Image, super thin dolls cause young girls to have body image problems. Shocking, we know.

Ever go into a store and realize that all the mannequins are pretty much sample sized? For a lot of people this doesn’t seem to be something that needs to be changed sooner than later because they are just mannequins, and there’s so many issues in fashion and the curve community that need attention. However, […]

Alessandra Garcia Lorido, Precious Lee, Marquita Pring, Sabina Karlsson, and Georgia Pratt all walked in the show, along with straight-size models. Love these stunning […]

Honestly, this is one of the dumbest portions of an incredibly stupid election cycle thus far. People are questioning whether or not Hillary Clinton is fit to lead because she felt sick. Pardon me while I simultaneously pour a very hot cup of tea and a glass of wine to attempt to deal with the […]
