Here we go again, time to scrutinize the alleged weight loss of yet another model. Recently Ashley Graham was criticized, based off of a single Instagram photo, for supposedly losing weight. Some of those who had claimed look up to Graham as a body posi role model were angered by what they though to be […]
Growing up I thought all models looked the same. I thought the criteria to be a model was that you had to be: as tall as a skyscraper, as skinny as uncooked spaghetti, as tan as an Oompa Loompa and as blonde as bleach could make you. I didn’t realize that models could look different. […]
Coco Rocha recently took her place in modeling to the next level, and is now Brand Director and a major stakeholder in Nomad Mgmt Modeling Agency. It’s a smart move for Coco, as Nomad Mgmt founder, Damon Rutland was the one who discovered her way back when she was only fourteen years old. According to WWD, Coco’s role […]
It’s easy to love Fergie. The girl-power member of The Black Eyed Peas has been holding it down for ladies since the early 2000s, but her new video was kind of a bummer. Fergie and her team gave the term milf a new meaning by turning the acronym into Moms I’d Like to Follow, but […]

Sporty. Minimalist. And a touch of boho chic. We are totally crushing on Charlotte Kuhrt’s style. This 24-year-old German makeup artist/body-posi blogger/model is all things fabulous and all things Riot. She is an absolute wonder, but she didn’t always feel that way. “I started in the fashion industry as a makeup artist 5 years ago…this led me […]
We’ve got a lot of work to do. Everyone should be included. Each person should be able to see themselves represented in some way, shape, or form when it comes to fashion. That is a mind-blowingly simple concept, yet we cannot seem to get there at all. Ask someone to picture a model in […]
We need to shut it down.
Most of the time, I feel like I’m fighting to work.
It’s difficult to accept curvy models as the norm when every accomplishment, no matter how small, is followed up with balloon releases and think pieces.
Amy looks pretty peeved, and we’re hoping it’s because, yeah, women with curves still aren’t widely accepted on the runway despite her clever attempts.
She could drop her drawers at a YMCA pool and look just as hot.
What even is this level of 13-year-old perfection?
“You do have to find the right fit for you.”
School is already in session.
The company focuses “on the model’s talent not their height nor waist size.”
We have a long way to go before the changes making their way into the fashion industry’s conscious result in men and women of all sizes having the same access to clothes that fit.
