“Young girls shouldn’t aspire to be models.” Most people wouldn’t expect these words of advice to come from one of the most successful models of the year, but last week, Cameron Russell, a Columbia University grad and successful supermodel, appeared on CNN to discuss her TedX Talk that recently went viral, “Image is Powerful.” Claiming Continue reading

For the love of Girls

Date: January 17, 2013 | Posted By: Heather
I love Lena Dunham and I love her show Girls. No, it isn’t perfect, but it does provide one of the most honest portrayals of young, twenty-something females that I have seen to date.

Date: January 7, 2013 | Posted By: Hailey
The end of a year always brings with it some interesting “Top Ten” lists, ranging from best dressed to most money to least likely couple. But The Huffington Post took it to a whole new level with “The Best Nude Scenes of 2012.” Drawing on movies released throughout the past year, the Post created its list Continue reading

On December 21st, Rebel Wilson announced via Twitter that she would be hosting the forthcoming 2013 MTV Video Awards. I received this news with sheer excitement.

Taking the shame out of shapewear

Date: November 26, 2012 | Posted By: Audrey
Bump Watch (the obsessive and voyeuristic tracking of celebs’—or anyone’s, really—growing pregnant belly) is so last year. Today, it’s all about Spanx Watch, or rather, trying to catch the moment when celebs unwittingly flash their Spanx in public. That’s right. Who’s wearing “shapewear” is now big news. Just recently, new mom Kourtney Kardashian was caught Continue reading
