Marie Claire Australia Asks Six Agencies To Create Body Positive Ads — Here’s What They Come Up With

marie claire body image main

Marie Claire Australia asked six of the country’s top ad agencies to create a print ad encouraging women to love their bodies. They wanted to see what advertisers could come up with free from restrictions placed on them by their client (“Don’t make the woman trying to lose weight look fat!”) Big agencies like Ogilvy and Publicis submitted entries and, well, I kinda wish this project were real.

After a jump, see a couple of the fantastic, body positive ads: Keep reading »

Scarlett Johansson Finds Porn Enjoyable And “Productive”

  • Scarlett Johansson told Marie Claire that she finds porn enjoyable and productive, by which she probably means she gets a lot of masturbating done while watching it, I guess. [The Blemish]
  • This man has been arrested not once, but TWICE, for having sex with inflatable pool toys. [Huffington Post]
  • New parents in Germany will have the option of identifying their babies as intersex. [Newser]
  • “Sexual Butter” starring Paula Deen and “Insane Clown Pussy” are just two of the all-time, worst ideas for adult films. [Cracked]
  • Which came first, the Stim-U-Lax or the Pulscon Hand Crank? If you don’t know the answer, you probably need to review your vibrator history. [Betty Confidential]
  • If only these “Star Wars” sex toys were real. [Em & Lo]
  • Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson split up because she didn’t want to neglect her youth. At the ripe, old age of 19, I fear she might be too late. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »

Hillary Clinton: Stop “Whining” About Not Having It All

Today's Lady News photo

“I can’t stand whining. I can’t stand the kind of paralysis that some people fall into because they’re not happy with the choices they made. You live in a time when there are endless choices. … Some women are not comfortable working at the pace and intensity you have to work at in these jobs … Other women don’t break a sweat.”

— Da-yum, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Tell us what you really think. Marie Claire asked Clinton about The Atlantic‘s infamous Anne-Marie Slaughter piece “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All”; I hope that in the context of the actual piece it doesn’t sound so much like she’s dismissively saying “deal with it.”  I’m certain Clinton knows all about the larger, structural institutionalized sexism and workplace flexibility issues that families face, so I’m not sure why that wasn’t reflected in her response.

“I so didn’t, and I so don’t care about you asking about it.”

– That is Chelsea Handler‘s response to a journalist for Marie Claire @Work asking her about the rumor — legend? slur? — that she only got her show “Chelsea Lately” because she was dating the former head of E! Want to see me become irrationally angry and start breathing fire out of my nose? Suggest Handler only got her show because she slept her way to the top. I have a torn a new asshole on many a buffoon who has dared suggest that luck, talent, hard work and savvy had nothing to do with it. Her  bestselling books? Her (since-cancelled) sitcom? Her comedy tours? Her roundtable of comics — like Whitney Cummings — getting their own shows? Her ex-boyfriend’s penis must have been pretty damn magical to make all that happen. Keep reading »

The Huffington Post better get ready to create a new section because Miley Cyrus, ever the trailblazer in boob exposure, has found a new way to show off the goods. In the September issue of Marie Claire Miley models an Aquilano Rimondi gown, which reveals most of the inner side of her boob (aka In-Side Boob). We predict that in-side boob will be even bigger than side boob. Keep pushing the breast envelope, Miley. [Hollywood Life]

Rachel Weisz is so beautiful it’s stupid, and I think much of her allure has to do with the fact that she lacks the eerily perfect symmetry of most Hollywood faces — she has a really unique, almost strange look to her that is beyond compelling. After all, Daniel Craig put a ring on it, and though there was a significant amount of scandal surrounding that whole situation, it seems to me like the circumstances were very different from what the general public took from it (which, it must be said, definitely applies to most celebrity “scandals”). But I digress, because all I really have to say is: how gorgeous are these photos from the British actress’s September cover of Marie Claire UK? Those eyes! That hair! If I could have anyone’s face, I would probably choose Rachel Weisz, because look. Since I am ostensibly unable to do that, I’ll settle for trying to make myself look like her by piling on the bronze eyeshadow and contouring the hell out of my cheekbones. After the jump, check out my product picks for recreating Rachel’s smoky, subtle beauty — I know you don’t want to think about this, but it’s truly perfect for fall. Keep reading »

If you’ve doubted Marion Cotillard’s star power at any point in the past few years since she starred as Édith Piaf in 2007′s breathtaking “La vie en rose,” now would be the time to reconsider. Not only has the pretty Parisian appeared in several films since then, but she’s directly atop the radar at this very moment with her role as Miranda Tate in the highly-anticipated “The Dark Night Rises,” out July 20. In light of her current (and, it should be said, totally deserved — she is a truly brilliant actress) Hollywood ubiquity, Marion scored not one, not two, but three magazine covers this August: Vogue, Vogue Paris, and Marie Claire UK will broadcast the Oscar winner’s beauty — and, with the curious exception of Vogue Paris, her equally recognizable beauty mark — on newsstands next month.

Zooey Deschanel & 10 Other Celebs Who Don’t See Kids In Their Futures

She may be a bit of a kid at heart, but Zooey Deschanel doesn’t want any of her own. ”[Having kids has] never been my focus,” she tells the current issue of Marie Claire. ”My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids–but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need … I like working. That’s what I like doing. I like to work.”

I have to say, I’ve been on the fence about Zooey for awhile, but this interview painted a pretty interesting picture of her. (She also spoke about getting spit on by a bully in middle school: “I really don’t know why she spit at me. I guess I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. I remember I couldn’t believe it.”) And she’s not alone in not wanting kids; plenty of successful Hollywood stars plan on staying rugrat-free. Here are 10 more!
