    Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old from Utah in the United States, who has no Chinese roots, was accused of “cultural appropriation” after posting photographs on Twitter that featured her in a traditional Chinese qipao, or cheongsam. The dress symbolised a silent protest to promote gender equality after the fall of the dynasties and the beginning of the republican period in the early 1900s, and was worn during the 1919 reformist May Fourth Movement.

    President Trump recently advocated that more immigrants from Norway be welcomed. His inclusiveness was met by vitriol and Norwayphobia from the bigoted Fake News Media.I stand with President Trump, and propose that all beautiful Norwegian women be given instant citizenship. Of course, that may be merited for beautiful women of other countries too. If you want to suggest other countries that have beautiful women to whom this policy should be applied, please do so in the comments below, following the rule that your case needs to be made with one or more pictures.

    SNIP “Here is the funny thing about sexual harassment with us as models: It was seen as a compliment,” she told us at the Bloomberg 50 gala at Gotham Hall. “As a matter of fact, you almost got offended if you did not get harassed. Like, if this photographer is known for hitting on [models] — or goes for all the brunettes — and you show up at the studio and you are a brunette and he does not hit on you . . . it is like, ‘What is wrong with me?’ SNIP

    <p>Nowhere is the gendered double standard more apparent than in the Miss Universe competition.</p> <p>While women in all industries face professional hurdles, pageants are one of the only workplaces where they are required to wear ball gowns while doing so. In this annual competition, women are expected to be gorgeous, intelligent, and poised; to look good in a bikini, ace a question-and-answer segment, represent their entire nation and walk perfectly in high heels. Meanwhile Steve Harvey, the reigning male host, automatically exceeds expectations if he manages to read out the correct winner (and was somehow rehired after fucking up his one and only job).</p>

    Dressing children up as Disney's Moana this Halloween is racist, according to one parenting blogger. While parents should also think twice about letting their brood dress up as Elsa from Frozen because her character promotes 'white beauty'. Writing in her popular blog Raising Race Conscious Children, parent blogger activist Sachi Feris urged parents not to dress their children up as characters from backgrounds different to their own as it is 'cultural appropriation.'  Although many would see the strong-minded Moana as a perfect role model for their child, Feris said it's racially insensitive and risks parodying Polynesian culture. Describing her own discussions with her...

Miss America 2018 on ABC aired September 10th and throughout the show, donations for hurricane relief were solicited for those affected in both Texas and Florida. Never fear, though.

    It may be a fool's errand to try to predict who will win the 2018 Miss America pageant, even if you do care about the Atlantic City show, which airs 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10 on ABC. (Given the musical selections of the event over the past few years, "A Calvin Harris/Coldplay song" would be the most accurate guess.) But here are some top picks anyway, given our coverage of pageant happenings this week at Boardwalk Hall. These contestants may not triumph over the rest of the 51

    A Short Reflection on Beauty Msgr. Charles Pope • August 15, 2017 • It is common to link the good, the true, and the beautiful; this is proper because truth is beautiful and a very high good. But as with most insights, some distinctions are necessary, because while truth is always beautiful, not everyone or everything that appears to be beautiful is thereby true.St. Augustine comments on this, saying,Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses beauty even to the wicked (The City of God, XV,...

    Move over Hadid sisters, you’re no longer the only ones with upfront assets to flash. As evidenced by recent splashy, sexy looks sported by Harry Styles, a number of preening professional athletes and models at recent fashion shows, male cleavage is busting out on the studliest stars. Shirts unbuttoned to the sternum and undone jackets allow well-built men to show off nicely sculpted chest muscles. And women in the rag trade are not complaining. “I am absolutely into it,” gushes stylist Calyann Barnett, who dresses elite athletes such as Usain Bolt, Rajon Rondo and Victor Oladipo. “When you decide to...
