Abercrombie & Fitch sells padded push-up bras to seven-year-olds for no good reason

Date: March 30, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Perplexed about what to get the seven-year-old in your life who has it all? Why, a heavily padded push-up bikini bra, natch! Normally, “padded push-up bra” and “seven-year-old” only converge in the same sentence if accompanied by “Child Protective Services” or “Toddler and Tiaras.” But Abercrombie & Fitch, purveyor of all things preppy and pricey, Continue reading


Megan Fox is “frustrated” by her body. Emporio Armani is not.

Date: March 9, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
You’re supposed to be looking at her underwear. Granted, you may have been momentarily distracted. The pronounced hunch, the countable vertebrae, the concave abdomen — there’s a lot going on. But if you ask Emporio Armani, Megan Fox is just doing a really great job of modeling their underwear. Ask her trainer, Harley Pasternak, and Continue reading


Victoria’s Secret uses Adriana Lima’s ribs and hip bones to sell perfume

Date: March 4, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Don’t worry ladies, Victoria’s Secret values more than big breasts. They also really revere protruding bones and concave abdomens. Seriously, what is this? Delighted to receive some V.S. coupons in the mail (yes, I’m an “Angel V.I.P.” credit card carrier), my glee quickly turned to shock as I was assaulted by Adriana Lima’s prominent ribcage. Whether this is a Continue reading


What’s age (and weight) got to do with the Oscars?

Date: March 2, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Admit it, you would have dropped the f-bomb too. After winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar at Sunday’s Academy Awards, Melissa Leo blurted out the expletive, along with a slew of more G-rated words of gratitude. Yet no one can seem to let Leo off the hook for last month’s self-promotional “Consider” ads she personally paid for Continue reading


Rolling Stone magazine considers Justin Bieber an abortion expert

Date: February 23, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
By now, you’ve probably heard that Justin Bieber is an abortion expert. Okay, not really. But that didn’t stop Rolling Stone contributing editor, Vanessa Grigoriadis, from asking the tween heartthrob his thoughts on the issue. “I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber said. “It’s like killing a baby?” Perhaps phrasing that as an interrogative sentence doesn’t Continue reading


Pepsi introduces “the skinny can” for Fashion Week

Date: February 9, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Skinny sells. Or at least that’s what Pepsi hopes. Perhaps trying to keep up with Super Bowl ad sexism, Pepsi plans to unveil their new “Skinny Can” during New York Fashion Week “in celebration of beautiful, confident women.” Because, you know, beauty and confidence are only found in slim packages. Continue reading


Banned Super Bowl ad takes PETA from controversial to pornographic

Date: February 4, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
PETA, I just…I can’t. Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to witness what happens when an ad campaign goes from controversial (yet debatably tasteful) exhibitionism to straight-up, soft-core pornography. A word to the wise: do not view this video at work, around small children, or in the presence of anyone with an ounce of respect for women Continue reading


Buy your tween anti-aging products at Wal-Mart

Date: February 2, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Finally! A cure for those prepubescent fine lines and wrinkles! Yes, seriously. Hoping to officially crush the innocence of childhood, Wal-Mart has rolled out a line of anti-aging cosmetics geared toward 8- to 12-year-olds. The “youth preserving” line is called “Geo-Girl” and has 69 products ranging from exfoliators (to scrub off those gross, dead, OLD Continue reading


Slim Fast says quick fix weight loss is best

Date: January 21, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Who has time to be healthy? Not that the Slim Fast plan was ever a nutritious, rational option (in what world is ONE meal a day a good idea?), but their newest tagline just kills me. “Slim Fast! Who has time to slim slowly?” Awesome. Wonderful. Great thinking, Slim Fast! Because really, nothing could improve Continue reading


The list of “Fat TV” shows keeps on growing

Date: January 19, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Reality TV is so passé. Ladies and gentlemen, make room for Fat TV. Granted, this post has been a long time coming, but as usual, the geniuses over at Jezebel finally prompted me to write it. Yesterday, they blogged about the new A&E show, Heavy, which, unlike other shows, doesn’t involve competitions, makeovers, or the Continue reading
