As a curvy girl myself, I can honestly say that I know the struggle of finding jeans that fit over your booty, but don’t gap in your waist. I also know how much it sucks when you walk into the plus section of a store and all they have are shapeless, loose-fitting dresses that look […]
Written by Morgan Ruth McTiernan 2016 witnessed the dawning of a new era of beauty where the shift behind it is acceptance. That is, accepting everyone has differing perceptions of beauty. Movements and projects helmed by body positivity activists and both curve and straight sized models are calling for change. This is happening all over the […]
In short, Bo Stanley is amazing. She’s a surfer, model, activist, and former Bachelor contestant. You know that’s a great IG bio. She makes overachievers feel like slackers and can warm up a room with her smile at the same time. Talent, girl. That’s what we call talent. So, we couldn’t help ourselves when given the opportunity […]
We received a message from one of our followers, Krisi Kaz, who was pretty upset about a video where a small-minded feminist-hater named Nate decided to explain to the world why “fat acceptance,” is bad for society. To be fair, he thought he did a pretty great job. We hate to give him video views, […]
All around fabulous human being, Ashley Graham, is just not dealing with the nonsense. An image on her IG of her in a white two-piece outfit and a leather jacket somehow incited a SERIOUS freak out by some of her fans. Glam squad magic ???? A photo posted by A S H L E Y […]
Sometimes, you meet people and you spend the rest of your first interaction wishing you had known them forever. That’s how it feels to meet Jessamyn Stanley. It will not matter if you meet her in person, over a Skype call, or in an email – she is the personification of warmth. This light and […]
Bad day for ASOS.
We’ve got a semi-unhealthy obsession with badass yogis here at the Riot. To be honest, part of it is because yoga is an athletic practice that does not constantly teach women that they have to lose weight. A lot of yoga is about wellness and meditation while also being good for your body. We are […]
Stop everything, and let’s honor Queen Sabina Karlsson for a second here. She’s a curvy model. She’s a size 14. She’s a freckle face. A redhead. Mixed. And she just booked Milk Makeup for a new campaign. This is all of the things fabulous, and we are all about supporting brands who support the range […]
One of our behind the scenes moments sparked an interesting thought for me. We had our RunwayRiot leadership meeting yesterday, and Iskra was excited for a photoshoot she had to do that had to be totally sans makeup. This sounds unbelievably exciting, but I recognize there are plenty of women who may not feel the […]
There are few ladies out there that are as wonderful and light-filled as Clémentine. Whether she is serving all of the face in a straw hat, or dancing around with Iskra eating ice cream, Clem constantly kills the game and steals our hearts. She’s got this uncannily perfect way of combining boho, minimalism, and quirk all […]
My Pilates instructor is one of the healthiest and fittest people I know. She was swimming at her gym when an eight-year-old girl came over to her and said, “Oh, you’re not doing it right! I can teach you how to swim so that you can lose more weight!” We were stunned. This is what […]
Let’s tread a bit carefully today. InWestern society, the subject of weight loss has become very perverted and now carries thousands of negative, harmful connotations of which it may never be completely rid. So when you read the words “weight loss” throughout this post, try to imagine the unhealthy sub categories that are usually linked to […]
Rachael Forster is not having any of your body-shaming bs. From thin to thick, Rachael is a firm believer that all bodies are beautiful. She’s been through her own issues, but has come out of them as a strong supporter of women, a healthy critic of the media, and wise beyond her years. Rachael, like […]
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 […]
To help you productively dress for all your upcoming spring festivities.
The body revolution is here, apparently.
After posting a nude selfie, there has been many haters, and supporters. However Kardashian seems to have had the last laugh.
If you want to keep your squad strong on the body diversity tip.
It will be bright and at times random.
These are the lines that actually nailed it.
She wears mesh suiting, fire floral prints, and very little lingerie.
It’s still a real hoot how celebrities and models who happen to wear larger sizes are so often interviewed about how they’ve managed to love themselves?
