It is pretty common to see mannequins in store windows with an alien-like thinness, their tall willowy bodies and emotionless faces looking down on you. However, when window-shopping the other day, I happened to notice mannequins posing in a lingerie store’s window, all of whom had very visible ribs. It’s bad enough that mannequins often have very visible nipples (why are they always turned on or freezing?), but these mannequins look as underfed as ... Read More

The recent trailers for "The Social Network" aka the Facebook movie have been creepy to say the least, with audio clips set to suspenseful music and words like "traitor" as the only images. This new trailer gives us a little more of the movie, though it's still pretty dark. One thing is for sure: we will be watching it this fall. Not only because our September cover girl Rashida Jones is one of the main players in this dramatic flick, but also because it's about ... Read More
What up young entrepreneuring ladies? Just vlogging about all the new clothes you got... for free! What started as personal video blogs about what clothes high schoolers bought has turned into an easy advertising method. Teen girls have been posting what are called "haul videos" on YouTube showing the latest fashions for some time now, but stores are just starting to notice and give them benefits for what was once free advertising. According to "Good Morning ... Read More
One of the things I remember most about being a kid in the summer were the endless days at the local pool, letting my hair turn green from the chlorine as my friends and I pretended to be mermaids. We would let our hair down and try to keep our feet together as if we had mermaid tails. If I could go back in time knowing that I actually could have a real mermaid tail, I would be the coolest kid at the pool! Here's this awesome craft project from Instructables to ... Read More
My intense interest in biographies was sparked while studying World War II in what seemed like all three years of middle school. Reading Anne Frank's diary was one of the rare occasions that we got to hear the perspective of someone the same age as us 7th graders— hearing about the world from the perspective of someone at least twice our tween age was almost always like listening to Charlie Brown's teacher. However, Anne's voice and story were so relatable ... Read More
Babble’s Strollerderby posed an interesting idea today: what if the Pill could be sold over-the-counter, no doctor’s visit or prescription necessary? On initial thought, this sounds amazing, especially for all the teens out there who would NOT end up pregnant and in poverty, or worse, in abstinence-only PSAs or poorly-acted TV shows. According to this Newsweek article, members of the Oral Contraceptive Over-the-Counter Working Group, a ... Read More
Women make up the majority of the workforce these days, and have even been breaking into the boys clubs, also known as politics and comedy. Olivia Munn and (gasp!) Elena Kagan have proven to be the ladies of the week who combined both politics and comedy. One of our favorite new columnists at Salon keeps it real with some sassy advice for dudes who are too distracted by co-workers’ boobiliciousness, and we can’t help but think about that Debrahlee ...
