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 […]

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 […]

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 — 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* […]

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, […]

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. […]

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. […]

Sephora is a magical place, but their brands are not necessarily the be all end all for what is totally fabulous for your face. If you haven’t heard of Gold Label Cosmetics, you’re going to want to put them on your list because mmmmohmygosh. 😍😍😍 #Repost @indigobeaux – ” #privatejests by @goldlabelcosmetics is our go […]

The body positive route is a hard one, and we all need to remind ourselves of just how special we are sometimes. Enter Paola Mathé and her beautiful self giving a proclamation of self-love, and you may find yourself with a small tear. Paola is the creator and owner of Finding Paola, where she shares her […]

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 […]

After years of dealing with trolls who have nothing better to do than insert their own, unwarranted opinions about other people’s bodies, Instagram is finally allowing users the capability to put an end to the nonsense. Their new comment filtering feature will no doubt cause some rifts, but it’s pretty beneficial for all of us […]

Gabby has had her fair share of frustrations this year, but you would NOT know it by looking at her. Ms. Douglas looked absolutely flawless in a pink, geometric gown that made us inwardly scream because it is clear that she came to slay. what an amazing experience ! A photo posted by Gabby Douglas […]

The FOMO was suuuuuuuuper real as we watched some of the most badass babes in the business post pictures from Santorini for the past couple of days. #GabiThreeZero was absolutely everything, and we figured the world deserved a round up of all the curvy, ‘kini, and Greek fabulousness. A photo posted by LoveBrownSugar (@lovebrownsugar) on […]

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 […]

Women have a lot of trials and tribulations when it comes to their appearance, but excess hair is quite often a universal no-no for ladies. Harnaam Kaur and her beard are not only winning titles, but hearts across the globe. A photo posted by Harnaam Kaur (@harnaamkaur) on Sep 3, 2016 at 12:50am PDT Harnaam […]

We at the Riot totally love Misty Copeland. She’s beautiful, breaking down diversity barriers left and right, and is an all around pretty fabulous person. We are just really hoping that the choice of words on her book don’t necessarily match the ones on the pages. Misty posted this on Facebook this morning, and we […]

I’m not the biggest Lena or Amy fan, but their recent interview seemed to take their Millennial-esque self-obsession from bad to worse. Since when do we not have to answer for the people with whom we associate and WHEN was it is okay to allow rape jokes just because you’re okay with it?! Sure, these ladies […]

We are pretty much obsessed with Elyse Love. She’s gorgeous, brilliant (hello, Emory graduate), and going to be one hell of a dermatologist. Consider this your intro into the fabulousness. Survival of the lit-est ✨ Happy Labor Day y’all! I’m spending this extra day off at home in comfy scrubs catching up on a very […]

We’ve watched the fashion world latch onto Gigi and Kendall for quite some time, but we had no idea they were climbing the ranks like this. These two BFFs are taking their checkbooks to the catwalk. 💁🏼🙆🏻 A photo posted by Kendall Jenner (@kendalljenner) on Mar 3, 2016 at 9:10am PST According to Forbes, Kendall […]

We’re all totally inundated with stories about how to enhance or create our own versions of beauty, but sometimes we just need a reminder that real beauty comes from within. Enter Reshma Qureshi to give us a reality check. Qureshi’s brother was harassing his sisters and poured acid over Reshma’s face and her sister’s hands. Acid […]

We aren’t always the biggest fan of Victoria’s Secret, but we do love quite a few of their angels.

If we are totally honest, being body positive isn’t always easy. It can be exhausting, frustrating, and disheartening when the world criticizes you, or you wind up criticizing yourself. So, we took the opportunity to round up some of our favorite body positive quotes. They aren’t ours, but they are super important. Put them on […]

Trigger warning: this post contains language about rape, sexual assault, and may not be recommended for certain readers. The beautiful and constantly entertaining Gabrielle Union opened up about her own rape this morning in the LA Times to discuss a culture of consent that is non-existent in America. This essay is so perfectly timed as […]

There’s a lot of reasons to love Rihanna, but she definitely added to the list when we found out that she wore an indie lipstick brand to perform at the VMAs. Consider Coloured Raine our new obsession. It was started in 2013 by Loraine who wanted to see more diversity and flattering colors for all […]

Cue the tears, Nike’s new ad has us grabbing our own crowns and saluting Queen Serena. Nike works with a lot of athletes, but to consider Serena the greatest of all time? Wow. The ad from agency Wieden + Kennedy simply takes you through a shortened timeline of Serena’s exciting, yet tumultuous career. The music, […]

Girl. If you aren’t on the Magic Michelle level, you’ve got a ways to go. Ellen Degeneres and crew killed this Magic Mike remake that is the perfect expression of hilarity in feminism. Women stripping is supposed to be for men, right? Nah. Not this time. Cue Ellen with Jenna Dewan Tatum, Chrissy Teigen, and […]

If you’re a millennial who is into food, you have probably heard of Spoon University. What’s super exciting, is that they released an email ad that is totally celebrating women of all shapes and sizes. Vegan foodie, Allie Fenwick, wrote the article, and we’re obsessed. First of all, shout out to you Allie. Not just […]

Let’s be clear, Teyana Taylor shut DOWN the VMAs. Lindsay might think that Beyoncé stole the show, but Teyana took the cake for me. Despite how incredibly fabulous she looked, I’m not sure why people are taking this moment to turn slim women against curvy women instead of just celebrating her for her. Unless you’ve been […]

In a night full of glitz and glamour (Rihanna’s amazing purple lip, anyone?), one beautiful lady decided to go completely makeup-free.
