Jessica Simpson: crusader for pro-curves causes or hypocrite with too many body insecurities? 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. I’d rather have a happy medium and take some off my chest and put it towards my butt so I could balance out a bit” — not to mention her blatant shock and disgust with big boned-African women on her reality TV show, “The Price of Beauty.” So, we’ll be interested to see which side of Jessica we get when she presents her collection at New York Fashion Week. Simpson has just announced that she’ll be using “real women” models to showcase her designs. Keep reading »

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. Mom, on the other hand, might not be so happy about that one. So which would you rather do—be safe and boring as a Talbots model or be one of Dov Charney’s racy indie girls? Keep reading »
Eighteen-year-old Georgia May Jagger has two claims to fame. First, that she is Mick Jagger’s daughter. And second, that she made her modeling debut at 17 years old, appearing topless in a Hudson Jeans ad. Subsequently, it’s been difficult to consider Jagger without defaulting to talk about scandal. Despite the fact that Miss Jagger claimed Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, the teen’s work has continually been uber-sexual.
