Date: April 15, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Never thought you’d agree with Nicole Richie, did you? The mother of two, daughter of Lionel (“Hello?”), ex-reality star, Paris Hilton frenemy, and arguable former hot mess released a statement regarding all the recent reports focused on her supposed “baby bump“: “Contrary to recent speculation, I am not pregnant. This irresponsible reporting continues to feed Continue reading

Victoria’s Secret airbrushes away Candice Swanepoel’s torso

Date: April 1, 2011 | Posted By: Stacey
Just in case you needed more proof that models are airbrushed within an inch of their lives (and without a few inches of their torsos). A big thank you to About-Face reader Christiana who brought our attention to the latest Victoria’s Secret offense. It’s easy to overlook the Photoshop fiasco at first glance, but take Continue reading

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

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
