Courtney Love’s holiday collection will have you feeling like Miss World! Say what you will about Courtney Love, but in the ’90s, no one straddled the fashion line between freak and femme fatale like the former Hole singer. From the grunge queen of baby doll dresses to subversive red carpet star, Love’s signature style inspired the Sassy-reading set for years to come. And her new fashion collection Love, Courtney by Nasty Gal ($68 to $398, nastygal.com) is just the right mix of nostalgic and modern. Pair the...

Danielle Brooks — aka Taystee on Orange Is The New Black and Tony-nominated Broadway star of The Color Purple — is taking a stand for plus-size visibility with a heartfelt series of tweets and Instagram posts about the new season of America’s Next Top Model. The season features plus-size supermodel Ashley Graham as a judge, but not one of the 24 contestants is plus-size. As Brooks rightfully points out, this does not reflect the world we live in: more than half of women in the US...

Tucked away in a peaceful, sun dappled plaza in L.A.’s Chinatown is Friend Mart (970 N Broadway #105, friend-mart.com), a brand-new shop full of things you’ve probably coveted on Instagram, from Rachel Howe’s Small Spells tarot decks to Sara M. Lyons’ “Whatever Forever” patches to ’zines like Got a Girl Crush. “It’s exciting because I get to pick it all, so it’s like Tuesday’s personal Christmas wish list,” says illustrator and shopkeeper Tuesday Bassen, known as much for her own badassness as for the badass...

During the Victorian era, pink was considered a sweet, feminine color, suitable for the gowns of young ladies in their first season. It was also fashionable for more mature Victorian women, who often wore evening dresses made of fine pink satins and silks. Most commonly of all, pink was an accent color used for trim and accessories. Ladies carried pink parasols and pink fans. They decorated their bonnets with pink ribbons and flowers. And, in the summer, their light cotton gowns were brightened with pink...

Stretch marks: Almost everybody has them, but thanks to Photoshop, we so rarely see them. (At least in media.) In the past week, model Barbie Ferreira and plus-size retailer Lane Bryant both spoke out for stretch marks. Lane Bryant quietly released an Instagram image starring plus-size model Denise Bidot looking gorgeous in a bikini. The image was un-Photoshopped and showed stretch marks on Bidot’s stomach. As the Huffington Post points out, the photo’s caption didn’t mention the stretch marks, but commenters certainly noticed — and (mostly) approved. On...

The fashion industry has a long, long, long way to go — particularly in regards to race. And model Deddeh Howard, who was born in Liberia and now lives in Los Angeles, is doing something about it. Howard worked with photographer Raffael Dickreuter to recreate major fashion campaigns that feature white models — and she slays in every single photo. The photo series is titled “Black Mirror,” and Howard writes, “I hope to show the world that it is time for all of us being seen.” Explaining...
