I look at Coco Rocha and see a pretty woman. But casting directors have looked at the runway model and told her she is “too fat” and, recently, “too big” to be hired. Coco and model Carré Otis visited “Anderson” to talk about ways to protect models who start as teen girls, a subject they are both familiar with. Coco was scouted at 14, began modeling at 15, and moved into a model apartment in New York City at 16. She alluded to Anderson that she had trouble along the way as her body changed from naturally-skinny-and-girly to growing hips and boobs as an adult woman. Keep reading »
If you’re single and looking to trick or treat, Halloween is the absolute best holiday to score some man candy. That is, provided you choose the proper costume. Don’t screw up your chances of getting laid this Halloween with an unsexy costume like this turkey suit. Wear it, and you’re just begging to be asked if you gobble at the height of passion. Do yourself a favor and save the turkey for Thanksgiving. Click on through for more Halloween costumes that will scare off potential suitors faster than you can say “boo!”
Halloween is just around the corner, and that means one thing: No, not buying discount day-after-Halloween candy and eating the whole bag and falling into a deep shame spiral (though we plan on doing that, too). Dressing your pet up in a stupid costume! Isn’t that what this holiday is all about? There’s nothing better than seeing a pug wagging his tail nub in a hot dog suit, or a poodle dressed up like a friggin’ bumblebee. Everybody loves laughing at a helpless animal in a superhero costume, so much so that pet costumes have now ballooned to a more than $300 million dollar business. Yes, we are a bunch crazy people.
So with that in mind, we’d love to see your best Halloween pet pics! Send us pictures of your pets in their Halloween finest (from this year or from years prior) and we’ll include them in an upcoming slideshow! The spookier the better!
People think that when a woman cuts off her hair, it means something is wrong. “I think she’s going through a rough time,” they whisper. They try to pinpoint the trauma—”it was that boyfriend who broke up with her” or “I think she might have had an eating disorder.” Women are supposed to be attached to their hair, and their hair is supposed to be attached to them. It’s one of the most obvious signs of femininity and if a woman shaves it all off, she either has cancer, is majorly depressed, or is rebelling against society.
My decision to buzz my hair was not for any of those reasons. I am not dying of anything. I’m not that rebellious. And to be honest with you, I am happier right now than I have ever been—I love my work, I love my husband, I love my mom, I love my friends. While the women around me tend to have long, lustrous locks, somehow that just didn’t seem like “me.”

Being single in a sea of relationships can be annoying sometimes, but that’s why it’s important to keep a sense of humor about it. Thankfully Beth Griffenhagen does just that–in haiku form, no less. Her new book Haiku and the Single Girl captures the hilarious moments of dating and singledom in short 5-7-5 bursts of brilliance. For instance:
I saw an old flame
And he looked. Just. Terrible.
Schadenfreude for sure! We suggest you pre-order it immediately! [$9.01, Amazon]
Wearing shorts in the middle of the fall or winter can be a little tricky for some. But I’m here to tell you that it’s really as easy as wearing a skirt or dress during the colder months. All you have to remember are a few simple rules, for lack of a better word. First, and this is a biggie, you have to create a continuous line of color from the shorts to your legs or your legs to your shoes or from shoes to legs to shorts. Also, wear something that skims the body on top to avoid any boxiness. It can be a fitted top, sweater, or even a jacket that highlights the waist. In addition, if you’re going for a light pair of shorts, then balance out the color while making it season appropriate with a darker neutral. But in this instance, if you choose black then don’t also add in gray and brown or vice versa. See these rules in practice with the two shorts for cold weather looks I put together. Keep reading »
