The Daily Mail Has Issues, Fat Issues

Notice anything weird about this block of blog ads in The Daily Mail‘s Femail section? One headline mourns the loss of a daughter, blaming super-thin starlets for supposedly encouraging anorexia. Then, in the top right corner, there are tips on how to lose those extra pounds you gained eating Easter candy (fatty!). Um, this is a major Daily Mail FAIL! If you’re going to try to write a serious piece about young girls and eating disorders, you should keep the self-esteem-gouging weight loss tips out of the same space. Sigh. For the record, I ate an entire bag of jelly beans on Sunday. And they were delicious. Keep reading »

Anonymous Columnist Will Make You Never Want To Work In Fashion

Ever thought of making a career in the fashion world? The Daily Mail‘s anonymous “fashionista” columnist will definitely make you think twice. Reading her tales is kind of vom inducing, and her latest update recounts in shameless detail just how horrible she and her colleagues are. So, here’s our takeaway, boiled down for you, of what it means to work in the fashion industry, according to this nut anyway … Keep reading »

What Would Happen If Anti-Aging Products Really Worked?

As rational, educated women, we know in our heads that when it comes to the often outlandish promises skincare companies make, applying a so-called wrinkle cure will not actually erase lines from our face. As people bombarded with airbrushed images of perfect, supernaturally youthful skin and famous idols who fight each skin fold with a double dose of Botox, it’s safe to say that we’re warily interested in aging and the lack thereof. And when it comes to beauty products in general, is it really so crazy to ask for something that does what it promises? According to a Daily Mail report, we may be getting closer to true product efficacy and real, not just promised, miracles in a jar. Keep reading »

The Woman In The Mirror Is Skinnier Than You Think

When someone tells you that you’re not fat, it can be hard to believe them when you’re staring in the mirror. Don’t they see that jiggly mess there? Maybe you have some nice friends. But you might also be distorting what you see. Body dysmorphic disorder affects one in every 100 women in the U.K., reports the Daily Mail. In a story about self image, the paper worked with two women with body dysmorphia to digitally alter their photographs to match up exactly with their own perceptions (larger image after the jump). What you get is pretty terrifying, and hopefully less extreme than your own self-image. Keep reading »

Crazy Amy Living It Up While Wearing Herself Down In St. Lucia

I used to enjoy reading about Amy Winehouse’s antics. But over the months, it’s become too sad to file under enjoyment. The Daily Mail sent a reporter to St. Lucia to find out what Crazy Amy, as the locals call her, has been up to. And it’s awfully gloomy. Keep reading »

Keep Dry Under Your Shuella, ‘Ella, ‘Ella

Rain in the summer is a bummer. Wearing hot, sticky rain boots in the summer is a double bummer. That’s no longer the case with fashion invention #954 that you do not need, yet intrigues anyway: Shuellas, rubber rainboots for your shoes! The waterproof plastic booties wrap around nearly any type of footwear—heels, sandals, wedges—to protect from rain and puddles. With pink material and triple Velcro closures, the Shuellas have a bit of a futuristic ’80s vibe. The fashion girls over at the U.K’s Daily Mail were brave enough to give the invention a try, but noted, “Wearing them felt like stepping into the rubber booties of an elf,” while enduring the “laughter of passers-by ringing in our ears.” You never know when bad weather is going to strike and ruin your favorite heels…which would surely rain on your parade.
