If you haven't fantasized about having a bestie like Amy Poehler, then you're lying to yourself. Finally, in an interview with Vulture, she has revealed to the masses just what it takes to be deemed worthy of late-night texting marathons and corny birthday presents: "Money, connections, power, sexiness, thick hair, fast cars, a sweet-ass booty, and a desire to travel. All those things." Admittedly, her standards are pretty high, but I'd do it all to have just one mall montage scene with her.  "I haven't been able to...
Daniele Mazet-Delpeuch was contentedly living in provincial France, cooking simple meals for a small restaurant, when her life took a turn that landed her as French President François Mitterand’s personal chef.

For most brands, the concept of using "diverse" models in their advertisements extends to using both size two AND four Amazons. Despite continued backlash for these skewed representations, retailers have made  no real initiative to promote a wide range of body types. So, when I stumbled upon Debenham's Summer Look Book from earlier this year, I couldn't help but squeal with happiness.
