You’ve no doubt seen her somewhere—maybe in one of two episodes of ANTM, in pics on  her popular Instagram account, or in the giant Desigual ads on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Chantelle Winnie is a modeling force to be reckoned with, and it’s in part due to her rare skin condition, vitiligo. We’re so bored with used to the homogeneity we see among runway models, so Winnie’s quite obvious physical difference is a welcome departure. What was once a hindrance to her well being is now...

New York Fashion Week has been a flurry of fringe and furs, and we couldn't be more excited. One designer in particular has caught our attention: Carrie Hammer has, for the second year in a row, replaced runway models with “role models," embracing and empowering women everywhere. Twenty-one CEOs, entrepreneurs, writers, and actresses walked Hammer’s line; among these was American Horror Story actress Jamie Brewer, the first model with Down Syndrome to walk the runway. “I think it’s important that women understand that beauty comes from power,...

It looks like Pussy Riot—the Russian feminist punk band who’ve served time for hooliganism, as if you could forget—is tackling even more social justice issues, and we couldn’t be more impressed. Earlier today, the band released the video for their first English language song, “I Can’t Breathe.” Recorded during the anti-police brutality protests in New York City in December, both the video and the song are disturbing and visceral. The song contains pulse-like beats and a spoken recording of Eric Garner’s last words, and the video...

Today marks the swearing-in of Kate Brown (D), the first openly bisexual governor in America. Following incumbent John Kitzhaber's resignation, Brown will become Oregon's 37th governor, and likely one of its most memorable.  Oregon's first female governor, Barbara Roberts, was with her at the Oregon Historical Society on Saturday to celebrate the state's 156th birthday.  As of yet, it's unclear who is to be part of Brown's staff, or what policies she might introduce, but it is very exciting that a bisexual woman will be at the...

  Last Saturday night brought an evening of laughs as the world tuned into the 40th anniversary of SNL. The marathon-length show averaged 23.1 million viewers, more views than an NBC primetime telecast (aside from the Super Bowl) in over a decade. The legion of actors include audience favorites such as Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy, and many more. But the best moment of the night–and of our entire week–was a new installment of a fan-favorite sketch, “The Californians,” which...
