Shake-shake-shake. Shake-shake-shake. Shake your Levi’s. Shake your Levi’s. That would have been a better soundtrack for this Japanese Levi’s commercial in which a battalion of 30 girls dance around and shake their butts to hawk the company’s new line of custom fit denim: Curve ID. The stunt went down in a Tokyo high rise as onlookers gawked at all the rump shakin’. Apparently, you can also send a booty-oriented message through Levi’s HipMail. Between this and Old Navy’s Booty Reader, it’s shaping up to be the season of the derriere. [Tokyo Mango] Keep reading »

The pop star has certainly been vocal about body acceptance, voicing her opinion recently in Lucky that, “We all obsess over looking like the perfect Barbie type, and that’s not always what’s beautiful.” But she has also been known to present inconsistencies about her body outlook — “I don’t have a big butt.

Simpson has just announced that she’ll be using “real women” models to showcase her designs. Keep reading »

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Even though Talbots has gotten a bit more with-it in recent years, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that your mom eagerly awaits the arrival of the store’s catalogue in her mailbox each month. You’d certainly make her very happy to be clad in khakis on the cover. On the other hand, having your butt star in an American Apparel campaign would make you famous for life and probably get you laid for almost as long.
