The University of Washington’s Cheerleaders Clearly Missed the Point of ‘Bring It On’

University of Washington Cheerleading Team's Infographic

Apparently, the University of Washington cheer captains somehow missed the underlying moral clause in Bring It On. Based on a “tryout look” infographic the team posted Monday night on its Facebook as a guide to prospective Huskies, grunge babe Missy Pantone would certainly never have made the cut.

The offending poster, an illustration of 29 superficial hair, makeup and body requirements for squad hopefuls, was removed from the group’s page early Tuesday morning after it (aptly) attracted a flurry of negative backlash. Why the team didn’t anticipate specifications like “body do’s: natural tan, spray tan” and “makeup don’ts: nude lips” being called into question is beyond us. (more…)

Helena Bonham Carter Does ‘Glamorous Cat Lady’ on UK Harper’s Bazaar’s Gorgeous June Cover (Forum Buzz)

We were half expecting to see Emilia Clarke on the cover of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar this month but were pleasantly surprised to see Helena Bonham Carter gracing the June 2016 issue instead. Making for an extremely refreshing cover subject among the sea of regular faces at the newsstand, the eccentric Brit actress wears a Burberry coat layered over a Stella McCartney dress as she braves the chilly British weather. Taking to the great outdoors for the shoot captured by photographer Tom Craig, Helena looks terrific on the cover sent out to subscribers (pictured below).

Members of our forums were thrilled with Bazaar‘s latest effort. “What a wonderfully unpredictable cover choice, and it’s just great to see a woman who will turn 50 soon, on the cover. She has such a great face, I hope the newsstand cover is good!” praised Miss Dalloway immediately.

“Wow! I can only hope the newsstand cover is this captivating,” said dodencebt. (more…)

The next time you’re feeling discouraged about your career progress, remember this: Gisele Bündchen was once told she’d never grace a magazine cover. She also faced 42 casting rejections before walking the Alexander McQueen show in 1998. We have this on record — this is not merely a ploy by the Brazilian beauty to appear relatable as she promotes her upcoming Taschen photo book, Gisele, due out May 10.

While we don’t all have the consolation prize of being willowy, naturally bronzed and blue-slash-green-eyed, it is heartening to know that the struggle is somewhat universal. When Gisele was first starting out in the fashion industry, “I remember some people telling me my nose was too big or my eyes were too small, that I could never be on a magazine cover,” the highest paid supermodel in the world confessed to People. Industry insiders need to cease bullying our Angels. (more…)

Bella Hadid is doing just fine for herself on the magazine front lately, having recently starred on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain and receiving rave reviews on our forums. Bella now takes to the cover of Vogue Turkey, a magazine that often falls short on our forums. Sure to garner the magazine some much-needed attention, Bella gets all dolled up in Givenchy for her first Vogue cover, shot on location by Sebastian Faena.

“Old glamour in a cheap way, not my cup of tea,” pointed out an underwhelmed Nymphaea.

“Irina Shayk is it you? I like the jewelry but not the hair. I like the fact that they tried something different with Bella but I’m not convinced. It’s a pretty cover though,” added Aizanara. (more…)

Stella McCartney releases her designs for Rio 2106.

Three months out, there’s much about the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics that remains up in the air. Will athletes contract the Zika virus and be unable to perform? (Approximately 1.5 million Brazilians were infected last year.) Will the pollution-ravaged Guanabara Bay be clean before the sailing competition? (Ricardo Leyser, Brazil’s new sports minister, says not entirely.) Will the nation’s political unrest have subsided? (President Dilma Rousseff is on the brink of being ousted for corruption.) Will the stadium even be ready? (A recently constructed elevated bike path collapsed last week, killing two, but Leyser holds that the facilities are safe, sound and well on the road to complete, barring any major delays.)

…But thanks to Stella McCartney for Adidas and Polo Ralph Lauren, we know what the (repellant-anointed) British and American athletes will be wearing, respectively. (more…)
