French lingerie line Valega made some weird boob cartoons to promote their Finally Together push up bra. The ads feature animated breasts (with arms and legs) joyfully reuniting. In this commercial, right and left breasts meet at the airport and engage in a highly disturbing nipple bumping squishfest. The other spots take place respectively at a ship dock and on the set of a TV game show. I’ve included them after the jump for your viewing pleasure (maybe pleasure isn’t the right word). Breast anthropomorphism frightens me. [Ad Week] Keep reading »
It’s hard out there for a nipple. Or at least, it must be — that’s what we’ve got to assume based on the fact that so many lingerie models seem to be missing theirs these days. As we attempted to shop for sexy V-Day lingerie, we were struck by all of these hapless models, who’ve gone through life (or, ha! at least a lingerie catalog photoshoot) sans nips. So we decided to do some serious investigating to find out where all these nipples have run off to…

“Confidence is the important thing with beauty, mostly. It’s really about doing what you believe is beautiful. I feel most beautiful when I have my red lips on and when I have my cat eyeliner on and my hair curled—that’s what I feel good in, even though lots of people will see me with straight hair and no makeup on, and they’ll say I look so much younger. I don’t really care, though. I don’t care if they think I look prettier without the makeup and hair — it’s about what makes you feel good about yourself. I like having makeup on; I like the discipline it requires. For example, I can’t just dive into a cheeseburger; I’ll have some nice grilled chicken … or a salad. Although salad is hard to eat with lipstick on, too. (Laughs) But there’s a discipline involved … you can’t touch your face with your hands as often, which is good, because you won’t get sick as often. It’s like wearing high heels: there’s a ladylike discipline involved with wearing high heels or a corset … or pencil skirts. Suddenly you have to change the way you are in the world, and I think makeup and hair are a little like that.”
– Dita Von Teese gave an epic interview to beauty blog Into The Gloss and I love this quote. Beauty (and fashion!) should be about what you think looks good on yourself and what makes you feel beautiful. Is that being a tomboy? Is that being uber-feminine like Dita? You should not let the multi-million dollar beauty and fashion industries dictate how you should present yourself anymore than you should let religious folks, feminists, or Internet commenters dictate that. Whatever you want to do for you is your choice.
After the jump, Dita gets serious and talks … dun-dun-duhnnnnnnnn … nipple hair: Keep reading »
Just when I thought New York Fashion Week was going to come and go without any designer sending a sequined, feathered, red-nippled bustier down the runway, The Blonds (who also designed the outfit for Drag Queen Barbie) come through for me. Phew, that was close.
We’re not celebrities so we don’t tweet topless pics of ourselves or worse — risk having them leaked. But still, if you take a topless photo of yourself, famous or not, you should consider the possibility that someday, somehow, it may surface for the entire world to see. Why not make the best of it? If you’re going to bother taking your clothes off for a sexy photo session, you might as well make sure it’s a good one.
“The Newsroom”‘s Allison Pill learned a hard lesson yesterday when she accidentally tweeted a topless photo of herself. After blasting her naked tatas to 13,000+ followers, Pill tweeted an apology: “Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned int a tweet … apologies.” The only thing she should be apologizing for is her pose. Let this be a lesson to us all. When taking topless photos DON’T lay on your back. Why? It flattens you out.

Oh, was Rihanna on a Hawaiian vacation? I thought she was at Coachella Tweeting pics of herself looking amazing in a denim bikini. Anyhow, she was in Hawaii and she posted the Facebook pictures to prove it. We get it, she looks freaking bangin’ in a bikini. Only problem: She accidentally posted one which exposed her nipple. Hey, it happens to the best of us sometimes. Click on to see the NSFW shot of Ri Ri and more celebs whose nipples have accidentally escaped their clothing. [Gossip Cop]
I like boobs. I’m a straight woman, but really, who doesn’t appreciate them? Robots. Reptiles. Sauron. That’s about it. And I’m not even positive about Sauron. He might have, at some point, before he was all disembodied. Breasts are awesome. As feminist writer Gail Collins said in her New York Times piece, “Everybody likes breasts — infants, adults, women, men. Really, it’s America’s most popular body part.” But sometimes it seems like we only get to talk about how awesome certain kinds of boobs are. The ones that are bold, perfectly round, Sports Illustrated-style, belonging to Christina Hendricks, full, plush, generous, prominent, and just generally big.
Those words do not describe my breasts, but I like mine anyway. For some reason, I never learned to be ashamed. I listened to my brothers (and the world) make enthusiastic comments about well-endowed women, and, although I had a few moments of “Seriously, God? Where’s the rest of my chest? YOU FORGOT SOMETHING,” I grew up generally liking the way I looked. It could be that there’s something wrong with my brain. But I think it’s more likely that small boobs are pretty great. Here’s why.
