My friends and I have always loved Beyonce’s figure — and specifically her thighs — because she has more of a real body than most super stick-thin celebs. We call her legs tree trunk legs because they’re muscular as hell. You’d figure all that dancing and bootyshaking she does means her stems are pretty strong. So why in the crap did Harper’s Bazaar make her legs up and disappear? They seem to have been whittled down into two insignificant toothpicks.

Remember when American Apparel held a contest to publicize its new plus-size range of fashions, and provocative and outspoken American Apparel critic Nancy Upton won? Upton was offended by the language used to promote the contest, and in return, created a portfolio of photos mocking stereotypical notions about plus-sized women. Upton won the contest in a landslide, but in a catty and rather unprofessional move, American Apparel wrote Upton an open letter that rescinded her win.
After a slew of bad press (I mean, what were they thinking?), American Apparel relented, and flew Nancy out to their Los Angeles headquarters for a meeting to discuss how Nancy thought American Apparel could be better marketing to plus-sized women. And … everybody’s happy now?
Well, kind of.

It’s been almost 15 years since the release of “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion,” starring Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino. And if you’ll remember, Post-It Notes played a pivotal role in the plot of the film (the girls claimed they invented the handy note-writing tools). So to commemorate the classic 1997 comedy, Entertainment Weekly designed special dresses made out of multi-colored Post-Its. Rather glamorous, wouldn’t you say? [Entertainment Weekly]
Can’t afford a Chanel bag? That’s okay, just wear the brand on your nails instead. Chanel’s just revealed three of its new colors for spring 2012–titled April, May and June. Perfectly fruit punchy, wouldn’t you say? [Fashionista]

Nobody has filing cabinets anymore. I mean, well, most people don’t! Who has papers, after all, when everything’s stored conveniently on hard drives? But that doesn’t mean you should throw your bulky home filing systems away just yet. They can be handily re-purposed as raw surfaces for the kitchen or living room. Shown here, a filing cabinet with the addition of a cutting board on top, and a towel rack drilled into the side, turns into a great kitchen cutting and storage surface. [Apartment Therapy]
