'Denim Day' Reminds Us (Again) That Wearing Tight Pants Doesn't Give Rapists An Excuse To Attack
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 18:47:42 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Though some court rulings may imply otherwise, wearing tight clothing does not give rapists permission to assault.

Wednesday marks "Denim Day," the awareness event when advocates and survivors speak up for the rights of people who have been sexually abused. The event dates back to 1999 when the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore fitted jeans at the time of the assault. The justices ruled that the victim must have helped her attacker remove her pants, thereby giving her consent.

The following day, female politicians came to work wearing jeans to stand in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence then turned that powerful statement into Denim Day -- the day advocates wear jeans and attend rallies to protest against misguided attitudes about sexual violence.

Supporters are getting involved in a number of ways.

University of California, Berkeley students, for example, are distributing information about the campaign and giving people a chance to express messages about sexual assault on T-shirts and jeans. The Guess Foundation committed to making a $100,000 donation to Peace Over Violence, and has more than 400 stores participating in Denim Day efforts. Assault survivors are also using the awareness day as an opportunity to speak out. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck unified with the cause by wearing blue jeans to a Denim Day event in L.A., CBS Los Angeles reported.

Over the years, some progress has been made with regard to how survivors of sexual assault are treated.

In 2008, the Italian court overturned its original ruling and stated that "jeans cannot be compared to any type of chastity belt," the Telegraph reported at the time.

Still, advocates say that rape survivors have to bear far too much stigma.

According to the Rape Abuse & Incest National Network, 60 percent of sexual assault cases in the U.S. are not reported to the police.

Denim Day supporters hope that their efforts will empower abuse victims, break taboos and help debunk misconceptions.

"The way our society thinks about rape and receives survivors is not only tragic, it's dangerous," Mariska Hargitay, actress and advocate, wrote on Denim Day two years ago. "Fearing that they won't be believed, survivors are less likely to report their rapes, which means rapists stay out of jail, which means they are free to rape again."

Watch These Grooving 'Grannies' Get Down Before Running Marathons For A Good Cause

Step aside, Mrs. Doubtfire.

These three young women, known as the "Jammin' Grannies," rock the grandma get-up better than anyone we've ever seen before.

And boy do they know how to bust a move!

To get themselves pumped up before they run marathons, they dress up as "grannies" -- with wigs and all -- and rock out in honor of mental health, according to their Facebook page.





On March 29 at Ukrop's Monument Ave 10k marathon in Richmond, Va., these grannies danced to V.I.C's "Wobble," and had everyone wobbling with them.

Take note of the way the grannie in the pink pants moves her hips. It's almost as good as the crip walk that the grannie in the blue pants busts out around the 20 second mark.

For the price of approximately 150 manicures you can have one of your very own The Row nylon bags. Here it is:

Female Student Reportedly Kicked Out Of Prom For Wearing Pants
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 17:14:35 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
School officials were reportedly not down with this student's prom outfit.

According to North Carolina's WBTV, Cherryville High School student Shafer Rupard said she was asked to leave her senior prom because she wore pants to the event.

"The teacher tapped me on the shoulder and said she had a problem with what I was wearing," Rupard told the outlet. "I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket, and I was like, 'Well I'll take those off,' and she was like, 'No, it's the pants.'"

Rupardas mother, Shawn McQuaige, told the outlet that neither the prom invitation nor the handbook included a dress code for the event. Indeed, while the 2013-2014 parent and student handbook specifies that students should wear aappropriatea clothing for school, it does not mention anything about prom attire specifically.

The Huffington Post reached out to the school district but did not receive an immediate response.

In 2013, Cherryville High School was awarded a bronze medal for outstanding student achievement from US News and World Report, the schoolas website notes.


Kaley Cuoco Cuts Her Hair Into A Bob For Real This Time
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 16:58:08 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Weeks after faking everyone out, Kaley Cuoco has cut her hair short for real this time.

Cuoco debuted a new shorter 'do, which has been chopped into a neck-grazing bob, on Instagram Wednesday, April 23. "We did it @clsymonds ! Now let's get some color shall we ? @andylecomptesalon," she wrote, giving shout-outs to hairstylists Christine Symonds and Andy Lecompte.









Last month, the "Big Bang Theory" actress made headlines after everyone thought she cut her long blond tresses because of a particularly misleading Instagram photo. Alas, it was all a joke because the 28-year-old just got a little bit cut off on that particular occasion.

"She did get a trim, but that was it," a source told Us Weekly of the attention she got. "Kaley saw the media reports, and they were cracking up about it."



Jon Hamm Asks That You Please Stop Talking About His Penis
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 16:35:54 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
If you do a Google search for "Jon Hamm penis," you'll know what we're talking about, though the "Mad Men" star would really prefer it if everyone would refrain from Googling that phrase.

"Would you want people walking up to you and pointing at your dick? I can't believe I'm still talking about this. But I've worn underwear every day of my life and the fact that I'm painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying," the 43-year-old told Men's Fitness in the magazine's May issue. "It's become a meme, I guess. Being someone who people want to photograph, you have to open yourself up to the positive and negative. It is what it is. If I get mad at it I'll look like a douchebag. But it's silly."

No, seriously, he'd really like you to stop concerning yourself with his penis.

"They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for f--k's sake. Lay off," Hamm told Rolling Stone last year, adding that intense scrutiny is one of the drawbacks to fame.

"I mean, it's not like I'm a f--king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c--k, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal," he said.

So, now that we're all going to stop talking about Jon Hamm's penis, he'd like you to focus on more pressing issues, such as why is Justin Bieber such a "shithead"?

"Look at Bieber or whoever. Youare like, 'What the f--k, man? What are you doing? Why?' There's no one telling those people no, and itas a shame," Hamm told Men's Fitness. "Is there a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, 'Hey, shithead!' You see people in the world and youare like, 'Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish?' Life skills are something weare missing."

Bieber is an easy target these days, but it's not the first time Hamm has put a celebrity on blast.

"Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f--king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly," he told Elle U.K. in 2012. "Incuriousness has become cool a| Itas celebrated. It doesnat make sense to me."

Sarah Hyland Creeps Us Out In Flaunt Magazine Photo Shoot
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:52:16 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Haley Dunphy ... is that you?

That was our first thought when we saw Sarah Hyland's photo spread in Flaunt Magazine, Issue 134: The Sharks Issue. The 23-year-old "Modern Family" star posed with a bevy of china and plush dolls wearing white Siwy overalls and a sheer organza top in one photo and thigh-high socks and bubblegum pink Giuseppe Zanotti heels in another. Though the petite star does resemble a doll herself, with her large eyes and dewy complexion, we can't help but be a little creeped out by these images.

That said, her hair and makeup look flawless. In fact, this editorial may just inspire us to try purple eyeshadow ourselves.

Exhibit A: She often wears clothes that aren't out of our budget.
Exhibit B: We can study her fly feminist ways via a course at Rutgers University.
Exhibit C: Learning all her amazing her dance moves is just a sweaty and sassy workout class away.

And why not complete the transformation -- sans the ginormous bank account, hip-hop mogul husband, adorable Blue Ivy and super stardom -- with a few of her beauty looks?

Well, we have Teen Vogue's beauty and health director Elaine Welteroth and celebrity makeup artist Sir John to thank for that. John, who is the mastermind behind eight of the videos in BeyoncA(c)as visual album, teamed up with Elaine to recreate three eye-catching makeup applications for our viewing and imitating pleasure. Love it!

The Lost Art of Dressing Up
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:18:05 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
I think my father owned two pairs of shoes all his life -- one black and one brown pair of Florsheims, meticulously buffed enough to blind you on a sunny day and always, always (did I say always?) stored away with shoe trees when not pressed into action.

My father was a barber, but every day he dressed like he was going to a wedding, complete with the little white pocket kerchief, perfectly squared and in its place all the time. At night when he returned from his Eighth Avenue barber shop in Manhattan, he looked no worse for the wear of traveling the subways and buses to get to our Astoria apartment. And the next day he looked better than the day before.

Being my father's son, it was no different for me or my brother. Going to a strict Greek parochial school meant no school day would be spent in anything but a regulation school uniform complete with tie and yes, shined shoes. My mom, a seamstress, made mostly everything we wore, so every stitch was always in place. And God help you if you weren't properly dressed for church on Sunday (the subject, by the way, of a recent story on CNN).

To this day, I carry the dress-well gene. Though I admit to wearing jeans and regular knock-around shirts to work at times (hey, it's my own business), I always feel funny doing it. On calls to potential clients, I always dress well, even though dressing well these days means dress pants, a nice shirt, blazer, but no tie. If I wore a suit complete with tie to these visits I would stand out like a piece of sod in a field of crabgrass. A small white handkerchief added to my vest pocket would complete the overdressed look.

I always welcome the opportunity to dress up, an obvious leftover from my upbringing, but I also welcome the occasional question about why I do it. It's a very simple answer -- it makes me feel good.

There is no philosophical way to explain how good you feel when you're all dressed up and somewhere -- or even nowhere -- to go. It even works when you're working out of the house. Try it. Change from your sweats or pajamas-that-look-like clothes into something nicer, and your productivity lifts. Conference calls in your pajamas always go better when you change it up.

I try to spread the word of dressing up as a way to fight the blues, but many times it's just me having a conversation with myself. This holds especially true for the future leaders of our country.

It's nice to see young people dressed nicely instead of seeing them in ripped jeans (and they pay a premium to buy them that way), jeans pulled down to expose their underwear (why wear jeans at all?) jeans that button up just below the hips (and always creep down to expose the start of Mt. Rear) T-shirts with meaningless phrases (and they pay a premium to buy them that way) and, well, shoes that would make Milton Florsheim cry.

I'd like to make one more outrageous statement, though I have no scientific backing for it. Dressing properly might make you feel healthier. And who knows, it may even work on stress.

There is, however, one exception to this practice of dressing well -- leisurely Sunday mornings, especially when the weather is nasty. What's better than reading the paper, having a cup of coffee along with an everything bagel (just a schmear please) and looking like one of those police mug shots of celebrities. I think even my father would approve, though he'd probably be shining his Florsheims.


When Did Lululemon Become a Noun Synonymous With Leggings?
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:06:49 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
With all the the talk about Lululemon's "dumpy" new CEO Laurent Potdevin at the helm of the fitness conscious company, it only seems fitting to explore the brand's highly contoured and often copycatted clothing -- and what's made it the most sought after non-athletic, athletic apparel.

Since launching in 1998, Lululemon has revolutionized workout wear, making gym clothes much more than garb destined solely for the inside of a sweaty, stinky fitness forum. Whereas people used to carry around a bag of spandex garb that would only see the fluorescent lights of their athletic arena, they now wear their "Wunder Under" pants proudly in public.

In addition to the brand's intended use (yoga, cycling, running and anything else sweat-inducing), I've seen the glorified garments in coffee shops, movie theaters, high-end restaurants, the workplace and just about every possible errand-running situation I've come in contact with (dry cleaners, nail salons, supermarkets, etc.) Paired with matching tops, designer blazers, puffy down coats and equally expensive cotton t-shirts, it seems that their pants have become particularly popular -- on par with a pair of blue jeans. On the west coast, namely Los Angeles, these pants are a wardrobe staple. They're easy to throw on and move around in, and they somehow seem to suck the body in in just the right places, something the body conscious population can't quite get enough of.

The Canadian company has become a symbol of status, with a hefty price tag attached to their form-fitting Luon (read: fancy for spandex) fabric. They've basically created a niche for luxe athletic apparel, a category that used to be reserved for the pricier styles designed under large labels like Adidas, Nike and Reebok. In fact, people have dubbed Lululemon a noun, synonymous with the word leggings. Lululemons or Lulus are widely interpreted as legging-style workout pants among the fitness savvy fashion set.

Are Lululemon leggings the Juicy Couture velour sweatsuits of the current decade? Will we look back and think, "What were we thinking?" or are they around to stay and suck in our cellulite?


The Cost To Attend A Wedding Is Soaring, New Survey Says
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:04:14 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Apologies go out to all of you soon-to-be wedding guests -- we have some bad news for you and your wallets.

According to a new American Express survey of 1,500 Americans, guests will likely spend an average of $592 per wedding in 2014. That's a 10 percent jump from last year's average spending ($539) and a 75 percent jump over the last two years, according to Market Watch.

This amount includes expenses such as pre-wedding festivities, transportation, attire, hotel and grooming, but does not include the price of the wedding gift. The average amount spent on gifts this year will be about $109 per wedding, but nearly twice that if the bride or groom is a close family member.

And, of course, it's not just guests that are dropping serious cash on the Big Day. According to The Knot's 2013 Real Weddings report, marrying couples are now shelling out $30,000 on average for their weddings and spending an average of $220 per guest.

8 Beauty Products Every Teen Girl Needs -- That Won't Break the Bank
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 14:51:08 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
If you're anything like me and have an undying need for every new beauty product that hits the shelves and has a limited amount of cash to spend, I know how it feels to get a new product that disappoints. Don't worry though -- I'm here to break down the best products have pleased my wallet and me the most!

1. Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid Lotion: $6.94
Every winter, the cold air dries out my face and this is the only good facial lotion that I've come across. Not only is it low in price, it lasts forever too. In fact, I've been using the same bottle for almost a year now. A little goes a long way and the lotion doesn't leave your face feeling greasy or sticky. It doesn't clog your pores and it leaves your face feeling soft and fresh! Not bad for almost 7 bucks!

2. L'Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow: $6.97
This has been my go-to eye shadow for about three years now. At first, due to it's small size and price, I was a little hesitant because I thought it'd only last a month. Boy, was I wrong! The pigments are so dense and bright that a little goes a long way. It doesn't crease when you use primer and there's just a little bit of shimmer in most colors, which gives it a pretty, girly look. They are also extremely easy to blend, which is awesome because you can make some smokey eye combinations out of their colors. I have seven colors that are a part of their collection and every one has a special use that could fit any occasion!

3. L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner (Waterproof): $8.44
I've been using this eyeliner since I was in middle school and I'm now a senior in high school. I love literally everything about it! Before I started wearing liquid eyeliner, I was always worried that I wouldn't be able to get the straight line, but with some practice and the right brush like this one has, I have perfect eyeliner every time. Not only is the color extremely bold, but it stays bold all day without fading. One tube typically lasts about three months, which is awesome for liquid eyeliner. Definitely worth the $8!

4. Coconut Oil: Price varies, usually around $7-$10
I recently discovered this natural beauty product. It's great if you have dry skin or dry hair. Because it is an oil, it's probably best to put this on before bed and sleep with it on, that way you're not walking around school looking like you just got done having a wrestling at KFC. When you put it on your skin, it feels great and smells amazing too! I typically put some on the dry areas of my face, my elbows and feet. For my hair I put it on my ends and it helps give it some healthy volume.

5. Eos Lip Balm: $2.96
I've never been a fan of the traditional cherry ChapStick. It usually made my lips feel waxy and it tasted awful. However, this lip balm is officially my favorite It penetrates quick, while still protecting your lips. Not to mention, the flavors are amazing! My favorite flavor is definitely Sweet Mint -- it gives you this tingly sensation on your lips with every breath you take! And you can't lie, the packaging itself is pretty neat.

6. Revlon Grow Luscious by Fabulash Mascara: $4.97
First of all, did you see that price?! You just can't go wrong! The quality of this product is on point. As a girl with relatively thin eyelashes, I was kind of taken back by how big and thick the brush was being that I've always heard that the thinner the eyelashes the thinner brush to use. However, this brush did so much for my lashes! It made them long, thick and of course, a perfect shade of black!

7. FX Sea Salt Spray Wave & Texturizing Mist: $4.47
For a girl with naturally curly hair, this spray is my hair's best friend! It gives my hair a cute beachy look without feeling like I even put spray in my hair. The price is obviously awesome and a little goes a long way. I've had the same first bottle for just over a year, and let me tell you, I use this almost every day!

8. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Color: $6.48
When it comes to nail polish a drug store, many of us girls know that it's usually a miss and chips in a couple days. But this is the royalty of drug store nail polish! It has a rich color and it lasts a long time. The way the brush is makes it go on easily with just a couple strokes -- and without needing another coat! Saves time and clearly is easy on your pocket.

You can get all of these products at your local Walmart, CVS or drug store. Hopefully they don't disappoint you, or your wallet either!


Shopbop's New Born Free Collection Will Tug At Your Baby-Obsessed Heartstrings
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 14:12:35 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Do you ever get jealous of kids who have better style than you do? Yeah, us too.

But there's good news! Shopbop announced Wednesday that their new Born Free collection, a collaboration with Vogue and 22 leading designers (including Alexander McQueen, Celine and our favorite jokester, Victoria Beckham), is now available for purchase on their website.

The adorable, matching outfits for women and children are relatively reasonably priced (almost everything is under $250) and all proceeds from purchases go to Born Free, an initiative to end mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

Even as self-proclaimed lovers of all baby-related things, we're not always the biggest fan of mommy & me clothing. But for clothes this chic, we're willing to make an exception. After all, we don't even have kids yet and that Diane von Furstenburg diaper bag is seriously calling our names.

Take a look at some of our favorite looks from the collection below, featuring models with their children, and excuse us while we obsess over these photos for the rest of the day.

Pharrell Williams Releases 'Marilyn Monroe' Music Video

Pharrell Williams released the music video for "Marilyn Monroe," the opening track to his new album "G I R L." With help from the video, it may help to get "Happy" out of your head for good.

Plus, Pharrell's wife, Helen Lasichanh, and Kelly Osborne show up to say hey.
