Levi’s New Curve ID Jeans Proving To Be Controversial

Levi’s is selling new Curve ID jeans in three different versions: a “slight curve,” a “demi curve,” and a “bold curve.” The sizes in the various versions basically range from 2 to 14 (although I’m aware sizes are completely and non-sensically different from company to company.) The tag line for the ad campaign is “All asses are not created equal.” The models are three light-skinned women who appear to be Caucasian. Although “curviness” is relative, none of them are curvy in the way, say, J.Lo, Beyoncé, or Crystal Renn is curvy.

To some it’s just an ad campaign for “curvy” jeans. To others, it’s racist and sexist advertising. Keep reading »

Vanity Fair Accuses Sarah Palin Of Relying On A “Push-Up Bra” To Get What She Wants

Vanity Fair has a new smear piece about Sarah Palin and thankfully this one was not dictated by Levi Johnston. According to this latest hit job, Alaska’s most famous pitbull in lipstick offered to get Bristol Palin and Levi married “if it would be good for the campaign,” threatens her employees, and is prone to ‘F-word’-filled arguments with her husband, Todd. My personal favorite part of the piece is where Levi extends a private apology to the Palins and the hockey mom asks him if he’s wearing “a wire” and if she is being recorded. (He was not.) That public apology that Levi issued? Allegedly, it was written by Todd Palin himself. Levi, through his lawyer, told Vanity Fair, “I had nothing to do with putting that statement together.”

But that’s not all … Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: What Meghan McCain Thinks Of Sarah Palin

  • Meghan McCain’s new book, Dirty Sexy Politics, is out today. Sen. John McCain’s daughter speaks to “Good Morning America” about being a young Republican woman and opens up for the first time about Sarah Palin. “I respect [Palin] as a feminist, as a Republican feminist,” Meghan says. Meghan also talks about how when Bristol Palin’s pregnancy came to light, she felt that the campaign ran the risk of glamorizing teen pregnancy. “I just think the pro-abstinence campaign isn’t necessarily the most effective one,” McCain says. [Politics Daily]
  • The model Bar Refaeli — or someone pretending to be Bar Refaeli — tweeted on Sunday and Monday about starving models and plastic surgery, but her agency ONE Management claims she has neither a Twitter nor a Tumblr blog and “these statements are made by imposters.” On Sunday she allegedly tweeted, “Seriously plastic surgery is not helping your impact on young women or your looks! Some people are addicted to drugs and others are addicted to alcohol. Me? I’m addicted to pomegranate juice.” On Monday, Refaeli allegedly tweeted: “I get so sad when I see 15 year old pale extremely skinny models at the agency looking all shaky and hungry … when will it end?” The tweets were linked to her official Tumblr account. As of right now, the Twitter feed has since been changed to be protected and the page for the Tumblr has disappeared. [Huffington Post]

Bras On Roller Coasters? Someone’s Got A Fetish For It

What Do We Think Of Hot Men Undressing To Sell Maxi Pads?

We ladies don’t get too much eye candy in TV commercials. The advertising motto “sex sells” seems only to apply to fake breasts selling body spray and beer. But all that is changed by Stayfree’s new series of YouTube commercials, “A Date With …” Three hunks who take off their shirts, three dream dates, three … commercials for maxi pads?

“A Date With Brad” is above and you can check out “A Date With Trevor” and “A Date With Ryan” after the jump. Keep reading »

Absolute “Mad”-ness On Rolling Stone

“Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm is on the cover of Rolling Stone with three more hot women than his character deserves: January Jones in regal gold, Elisabeth Moss in body-hugging dusty rose, and Christina Hendricks in a little red, five-alarm-fire of a dress. I love how this cover is demure by Rolling Stone standards but it sells S-E-X better than a dozen Jessica Simpsons.

Also, can we talk about the rack on Elisabeth? Girl, where’ve you been hiding those things?! [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »

Advice From A Cartoon Princess: “Find A Man Who Wants To Imprison You With His Love”

“You don’t need to have fancy people friends! Things around your house can be your friends! Don’t just sit on your furniture, talk to it!” That’s one of the awesome messages Belle teaches little girls in Disney‘s “Beauty & The Beast” — at least as interpreted by The Second City Network, a comedy group. After the jump, check out Ariel from “The Little Mermaid”‘s not-so-great advice. Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Denies Being An Alcoholic And Drug Addict In Vanity Fair

A week before she went to jail, Lindsay Lohan did an interview and photo shoot with Vanity Fair. Now, Lohan’s sultry cover is out just days after she has been released from rehab. Well-timed, Lohan. Well-timed.

Her spiel, the blog Styleite noted, is “typical Lindsay. Denial, denial, denial.” Everything you think you know about her is wrong! Lindsay is not an alcoholic, she says, because her putting on her alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet “would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I’m taking and my father says I’m taking.” Lindsay’s not a drug addict either, she insists. “I’ve never abused prescription drugs. I never have—never in my life,” she said. “I have no desire to. That’s not who I am.” Keep reading »
