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. But when it comes to advertising? We don’t want skinny models or famous women. A new study from the Warwick Business School found that women are actually turned off by advertising featuring products set alongside models and celebrities.

That’s because, say researchers, skinny minnies and beautiful celebrities make us feel bad about ourselves.

Duh.  Keep reading »

Love her or loathe her (and some people do), there’s no denying that Cara Delevingne is fashion’s “It” model du jour. The 20-year-old debutant known for her devilish bushy eyebrows and lineage as pure as the driven snow — her grandfather is Sir Jocelyn Stevens, publishing magnate and former chairman of English Heritage — first made waves back in 2011 when she appeared as part of a Burberry campaign. Since then, she’s amassed a veritable lexicon of achievements, from magazine covers and runway shows to a small part in the recent adaptation of “Anna Karenina.” Cara, like her sister Poppy, has quite the party-girl reputation, rubbing elbows well into the night with the likes of Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Azealia Banks. And then there was her well-publicized maybe-fling with One Direction singer and erstwhile Taylor Swift target Harry Styles, which landed her on the hit list of crazy Directioners (I think that’s what they’re called) everywhere.

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 girl in heavy brown makeup, wearing colorfully printed clothing, next to the words “African Queen” would get people upset about blackface. And it worked. [Clutch Magazine]

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 out the perfect box of chocolates for this special day.

Those women are not these Etsy models.

This is Dell. Dell was working a job delivering packages when one of his clients stopped him and asked if he’d ever considered being a model. Dell did a few test shots, and soon became one of the most in-demand models at the entire agency. There’s just one catch: the agency is called “Ugly Models.” Owner Marc French, who recruits “unusual-looking” people for appearances in TV, film, and advertisements, explains the appeal of his top model: ”Dell is not a conventional good-looking boy, you know, he’s got buck teeth, sticking out ears, he’s not what people say is normal-looking, because he’s quite ugly, really. But ugly in a great way and I love his features. I mean, I think he’s quite striking.” Keep reading »
