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

In terms of body posi IG pages, unless you’re living under a rock, chances are you follow our girls @IAmIskra, @NourishAndEat, @ItsRachaelForster, @TheAshleyGraham, @CrystalRenn, etc. Surrounding yourself with body love can be a great way to take back the power that “thinspiration” pages and body bullies have attempted to take away. Here are just a […]

Tim Gunn wasn’t pleased with Emily Ratajkowski’s choice of attire for the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party. 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? Why not just take it all off?” His co-star, NeNe Leakes, responded, “You guys […]

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. Ever heard of crabs in a pot? When crabs know they’re going to die and one crab tries to get out, you’ll […]

Lisa Lampanelli talked to the New York Times about her struggles with body image, and we can relate. During what was only her fifth standup comedy performance, after Lisa’s amazing set, the next comedian was on stage and an unamused audience member called out, “Bring back the fat chick!” Lampanelli said, “I was insecure and […]

Apparently people don’t think Gigi Hadid has a right to defend herself. According to Marie Claire, while in Milan for fashion week, Gigi was actually physically grabbed and picked up by a man who is believed to be Vitalii Sediuk, known prankster who preys on celebrities. The whole incident was caught on video. Gigi was […]

Apparently, these guys would. These three black men came out of their faces to say they’d never date black women. Now, if you don’t want to date black women, that’s your loss. You could miss out on the love of your life by saying that you don’t want to date someone who is a specific […]

According to Quartz, boy policymakers and scientists are in agreement that everyone should have access to green areas. The ability to spend time in nature is conducive to exercise and activity. Studies and surveys show that those living in places with more green areas have less anxiety, sadness, and anger. A photo posted by Butch […]

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 […]

Even in elementary school, girls have no tolerance for boys’ inappropriate behavior! This week the Huffington Post shared an adorable list of rules that a 5th grade student wrote to her classmate after he apparently got too close for comfort. The girl entitled her list “Rules + Regulations” and addressed it to her classmate, Noah. […]

So many trends have come and gone during this fashion month but one trend that I would like to die immediately? Embellished crocs. While some of you may wear them because they are comfortable, or think that they are a nice orthopedic shoes, they never have and never will serve the purpose of being stylish. […]

The one thing I’ve realized in analyzing all of the fast fashion retailers we love, is that they are really horrible for the environment! Making clothes at such a fast pace, and with the cheapest materials isn’t exactly the best formula for making clothing that doesn’t harm our environment. Next to oil, fashion is the […]

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 […]

So. Much. Yes. We absolutely LOVE Christian Siriano’s work (totally evidenced by this article), but we also love his body inclusivity. This is major that he was named to the Top 25 Best Red Carpet designers. Hollywood Reporter did a spotlight on Siriano calling his work the top in “feel-good fashion.” While that may be […]

If you haven’t heard, Brangelina is no more as of yesterday. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and no one was ready. http:// nothing lasts forever. 😭💔 #Brangelina pic.twitter.com/TgNMWKCKlA — tiné (@ImJustineLouise) September 21, 2016   While we are super bummed about them going their separate ways, we are way more bummed about […]

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 […]

Hey Vogue, you guys couldn’t have just put a real ballerina in the video? This video from Vogue España is drawing some serious hate from the ballet community. Is it clear that Kendall isn’t a dancer? Obviously. I point my toes better than that when just trying to stretch my arches. But we were *so* […]

According to the Guardian, Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester, is working to promote positive body image by encouraging teens to challenge traditional beauty standards.

It is no secret that many believe yoga, like other forms of exercise, can help to improve body image. But some people believe the body positive energy is even stronger with naked yoga. In an Ohio.com article this weekend by Joanne Viviano, nude yoga instructor Amy Patterson explained how the practice changed her view of […]

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 […]

You know how you see pregnant women walking down the street sometimes and you think to yourself, “I will be that fabulous when I’m preggo.” Yeah, Kerry Washington was that human being last night. That moment #Scandal costars #KerryWashington and #TonyGoldwyn joked about her “situation.” #Emmys (Photo credit: Vince Bucci/Invision for the Television Academy/ @ap.images) […]

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. Enter a story we were super bummed to hear about buzzing across social media. Ashley Ellis Sisco and her friends were trying to get into the Kandy Bar in Charlotte, […]

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. Torrente is a twenty-two-year-old model who wears a size fourteen. She came in second in the 2016 Miss Italy Pageant, only to quickly be criticized by […]

YouTube beauty blogger Rachel Levin just posted a beautiful video reminding us to be conscious of how we talk about our selves and our own bodies. As People Magazine reported this weekend, her video, entitled “I Am Ugly,” features Levin criticizing her own “flaws” while looking in the mirror. A young version of herself the […]

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 […]

According to the London Evening Standard, models are fed up with London Fashion Week’s body standards. Seven models including Gabi Fresh, Iskra Lawrence and TK, stood outside the main fashion week venue in protest for more models of different shapes, sizes and colors to be included in its upcoming runway show. The message the models […]

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. […]

This week E! Online reported that, in an interview for October’s W magazine, Halle Berry explained that she was turned down roles due to her good looks. Berry explained to the mag that she was “discounted as an actor” when people learned she had come from the business of modeling and beauty pageants. For example, […]

This week Marie Claire UK pointed out just how freaked people are about the fact that Whoopi Goldberg has no eyebrows. In an interview with VH1, Goldberg reportedly revealed that she does not like to have facial hair and chose to shave off her eyebrows. They later grew back and were itchy, so she decided […]

As we know, a lot of times celebrities tend to not show us really what happens behind closed doors with their bodies. And while we can speculate what non invasive tummy tucks are that Kim Kardashian has received, and the extensive dieting that stars like Blake Lively have gone through after having a baby, it’s […]

Besides Christian Siriano and Opening Ceremony, there weren’t many shows that focused on being inclusive this New York Fashion Week season. And while it’s disappointing, we knew that we could count on Addition Elle to show off some of our favorites like Marquita Pring, Precious Lee, Nadia Aboulhosn and Ashley Graham since they have continuously […]
