Just in case you thought racism was over and solved forever, here's model Chanel Iman talking about how the fashion industry is not immune to the "one is enough" idea when it comes to diversity. "A few times I got excused by designers who told me ‘we already found one black girl. We don’t need…

Watch Top Models Play Parisian Prostitutes In This Louis Vuitton Short Film

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that includes romanticizing the blackened underbelly of society. If you don't believe me, please consider the "heroin chic" phenomenon of the mid-nineties. (Also, consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called "How to be

Nope, Skinny Models & Famous Starlets Won’t Sell Your Widgets Any Faster

Women, we are difficult, fickle creatures. In our tabloids we body shame famous ladies, and in our magazines we gawk at every slim model body demonstrating the latest fashion trends.

Nope, Blackface Is Still A Terrible Idea, Fashion Industry

This spread in Numero magazine is a headscratcher. Why did they hire a white model and cover her in brown makeup instead of just hiring a brown-skinned model? Or is she supposed to be a white woman in Africa who is, for some reason, Tanning Mom-level tan? Numero likely knew that photographing a 16-year-old white…

10 Etsy Models Who Are Sad About Valentine’s Day

We have mixed feelings about Valentine's Day ourselves.  We are probably going to force the cat to snuggle with us and watch all the "Chelsea Lately" episodes in the TiVo queue over Mexican takeout. But some women, somewhere, haven't given up yet. Some women, somewhere, are dry cleaning their red dress, getting their nails done, and picking…

Is Hannah Davis — Derek Jeter’s Girlfriend — The Next Kate Upton?

She's young, hot and ALREADY dating a pro athlete. Yep, we'd say model Hannah Davis is all but ready to hit the big time.

Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell gives honest answers to questions about the superficiality—and the importance—of physical appearance in our society.
