Fashion Week: Where Are The Black Models?

The lack of black models on fashion runways and in ad campaigns has become a persistent issue in the fashion industry. The issue was most recently highlighted by Vogue Italia’s “Black Issue,” which featured only black models on its pages. Some, including editor Amelia, saw the magazine as a gimmick, but it nonetheless got people talking about the issue of race in fashion. Unfortunately, all they did was talk. Keep reading »

Crave: Silence & Noise Hooded Jacket

Fall is here and there’s only one way to not get left out in the fashion cold — a hot new coat. Alas, it’s time again to snuggle up to the perfect snug fitting jacket that compliments your wardrobe and stands out in a crowd, so you won’t have a hard time finding it in the coat pile at a party. This one, from Urban Outfitters, classes up the comfort of a hoodie and updates the classic crop jacket with asymmetrical buttons and bold prints. Available in a gray/black plaid or a black/white brocade, it’s fresh, fun, and fully-lined. This season, if you want to rock out in style, this jacket is the jam!

The EU Doesn’t Want Sex to Sell Anything Anymore

David Beckham may be one of the best things to have happened to the game of soccer since cleats were invented, but he’s also one of the best things to have happened to advertising since the dawn of modern media…at least in my book. I mean, have you seen his nearly nude Armani ads? [Now you have! See above! -- Editor]

Well, if the European Parliament has anything to do with it, our friends on the other side of the pond may not have the good fortune of gazing at Beckham’s chiseled abs in glossies and on the sides of buses for much longer. Earlier this month, the Parliament voted in favor of a report drafted by the Women’s Rights Committee that aims to more tightly monitor nudity in marketing campaigns and to end the use of gender stereotypes.

SideTaker.com Will Solve Your Relationship’s Biggest Arguments!

When I heard about SideTaker.com, I was instantly psyched — a website where you can lay out your side of an argument and then have your foe argue theirs, the winner to be decided by a jury of anonymous readers on the internet? Sweet! For starters, using the site as a reader is hilarious. Currently, these five arguments jumped out at me:

1. Is My Boyfriend Calling Another Girl (Who’s Cute) Considered Cheating?
2. A Couple Is Not On Same Page When It Comes To Having Sex — Who’s To Blame?
3. She Dumped Me Because I Played A Prank On Her — Was She Over-Reacting?

Quote Of The Day: America Ferrera Talks Smack About Gossip Girl

“Close, genuine female relationships are not what generally gets depicted in movies and TV shows. Like, if you’re watching The Hills or 90210, all the backstabbing shapes the way we act – you go to school, and you think your job is to find a sworn enemy and be jealous of each other. I mean, I love Blake [Lively]; she’s a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like Gossip Girl kind of condition us to be mean.” — America Ferrara in Seventeen Keep reading »

Location, Location, Location: Hooking Up In The Big Apple

As I’ve come to learn, dating in New York City isn’t…well…dating. At least what you think of traditionally in terms of the word. There isn’t a whole lot of that good, wholesome stuff you see on TV or in the movies. Oftentimes, he doesn’t call and ask to take you out to dinner, nor does he pick you up, or follow-up after the requisite three days (even if he really likes you). And, as I’ve found out the hard way, more often than not, girls pay their own way.
