Woah: Law & Order Is Getting a Reality TV Spin-Off

Law and Order

For those who can’t get enough of the Law and Order series in its many iterations, get ready to freak out because a new one could be coming your way. According to E!, NBC has put in a series order for Law and Order: You the Jury, a reality TV version of the popular shows which will allow viewers to vote on the verdict of real-life trials from the comfort of their own homes.

Murder trials would be excluded from the show, which we think is for the best. Though at first it might seem a little undignified to turn our judicial system into a reality show, when we think about it, it makes perfect sense. High-profile trials capture the attention and imagination of the public. Why not give the people what they want and put real-life trials up for public consumption and participation?

Thanks to Ashley Graham and Project Runway, Plus Size Fashion Is Having a Great Fashion Week

Ashley Graham’s Addition Elle lingerie runway show on Tuesday has garnered a lot of attention since it seems folks still can’t get over the idea that – gasp! – plus-size women wear lingerie and look damn good in it. Earlier this year, Graham was a prominent part of Cacique’s #ImNoAngel campaign, Lane Bryant’s answer to Victoria’s Secret Angel campaigns, which showed that you don’t have to be a size zero to look like an absolute goddess in underwear.

Graham’s collection for Addition Elle notably put a troupe of plus-size models on the runway during New York Fashion Week – a sight rarely seen, though that seems to be slowly changing. During the Project Runway finale this week, one of the contestants showed a plus-size collection, a first for the show. This week, Lane Bryant and its #PlusIsEqual campaign took over Times Square, furthering the call for inclusion and recognition of women who have been systematically left out of the fashion world.

We say it time and again – with most American women falling into the plus-size category, designers and brands would be remiss to not take advantage of a money-making opportunity by providing clothes that fit larger women well and are stylish at the same time. A few retailers have dedicated themselves to catering to this large segment of the population, including the latest, J.C. Penney, which just announced it will be launching a plus-size concept in its stores called “The Boutique.” 

Though there is a long way to go, it seems the tide is slowly turning when it comes to plus-size fashion. Though thin is certainly still in, it is important to have representations of body diversity and there is no better place than New York Fashion Week to showcase that.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover Is a Photoshop Disaster (Forum Buzz)

We’re now pretty much done with the Katy Perry reprints, which Harper’s Bazaar bombarded us with last month. Bazaar‘s October installment has been unveiled and is currently the hot topic of discussion on our forums. Sarah Jessica Parker was captured by photographer Alexi Lubomirski, leaving us more or less horrified with the outcome. The bold and unusual cover for subscribers found its way into the thread first (right) while the regular newsstand version arrived fashionably late (left), with SJP wearing Valentino on both.

“Eek, it’s certainly interesting. I just don’t know whether a silhouette like this works well for a cover,” thought Benn98 the moment the subs cover surfaced.

“That is the ugliest, cheapest and most amateur looking cover I think I’ve ever seen,” MyNameIs slammed soon after.

Also not feeling any of Bazaar’s best efforts was Oxymore, laughing, “OMG Photoshop disaster!”

Forum member dfl-001 agreed: “She’s not photogenic so that may explain the darkened silhouette.” Ouch! Later going on to suggest, “If you have to completely rearrange someone’s face with that atrocious Photoshop, maybe it’s time to throw in the towel.”

Nymphaea was quick to throw some shade too. “That’s horribly done!” she shared in horror.

“You’re so right, it’s really unfortunate. What’s happening with her teeth? It looks weird!” Benn98 responded in agreement, returning to the thread to take a closer peek.

“The cover is grotesque! It’s absolutely vile! She really does look like an alien in disguise. What were they thinking?” asked GivenchyHomme.

The Star Wars actress is all smiles, grace and charm as Vogue asks all the questions about Lupita we never knew we wanted to know. And as an added bonus, we get to watch her work a lightsaber, hula hoop and walk in heels at the same time. Clearly she is a woman of many, many talents.

  • She eats plantain, sweet potatoes and blueberries for breakfast.
  • She loves pineapple juice and would love to drink some with Misty Copeland.
  • She gets pumped up at the gym listening to Mavado’s “I’m So Special.”
  • She loves wide-brimmed hats.

  • She prefers pearls over diamonds.

Lisa Hyde’s The Bachelor Finale Low-Down: ‘I Can Remember the Final Rose As If It Were Yesterday’

I’ll be honest, this one is difficult to write as I know this will be my last The Bachelor Season 3 recap and it’s hard to say goodbye. It’s that bittersweet feeling. I really want to know who Sam ends up with but, at the same time, I don’t want to see any of these women get hurt.

We briefly got to met Sam’s family right at the beginning in Episode 1, and what a supporting and lovely family they were. 

I knew tonight wouldn’t be too tough for the ladies, well, nothing like when Sam had to meet their families anyway. If he is still confused on who he should pick, I’m sure this will have a big impact on his decision.  (more…)

The Bachelor Season 3 Final Two

The Bachelor Australia Season 3 is about to come to an end tonight, and the question on everyone’s lips is, will it be single mum Snezana Markoski or latecomer Lana Jeavons-Fellows?

Past winners Anna Heinrich and Sam Frost definitely had that something special which saw them take out the final rose for Season 1 and Season 2 respectively, plus they’ve both met Sam Wood and have got a feel for what he’s like, so we thought we’d check in with them to see who they think should win.

Sam, who has now been in all Sam, Lana and Snezana’s positions now that she’s been on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, thinks Snezana should take it out.  (more…)
