Caitlin Stasey Strips Back In The Name of Sexism and Body Image

Australian actress and activist Caitlin Stasey is once again fuelling the discussion on sexism, objectification and body image in her latest work for video series “What’s Underneath”, a project which sees participants undress to prove that “style” is not the clothes you wear, but rather “knowing who you are” and what you stand for. 

In a raw setting which sees the former-Neighbours star propped up on a stool in an empty space, Caitlin speaks out about sexism in her line of work, explaining that women have to be “cool with anything” such as humiliation, harassment and objectification.

Sexism in Hollywood is not a new revelation, with Rebel Wilson, Emma Watson, Rose Byrne and Cate Blanchett all addressing the subject when it comes to things such as age, workplace equality, comedic expression and sexual orientation. (more…)

Following on from Justin Bieber’s Blue Steel death selfie in the Zoolander 2 trailer released this week, the pop star is further proving his salt as a high-farshun model with his latest Car Pool Karaoke sesh with James Corden.

After singing along to Bieber faves “Never Say Never” and “What Do You Mean”, Justin suggests that he take the comedian shopping for a new and improved wardrobe. “I want to make you look sleek but not too over-the-top,” Justin tells him as they hit the shops, followed by James deciding that they’ll pick out outfits for each other. 

James gets a snowboarder-swag makeover which makes him feel like he’s “ready to drop an album”, right before Justin appears in an ugly Christmas sweater complete with a sequin throw and bowl-shaped felt hat, giving the world his best runway strut and over-the-shoulder stare. Ridic. We wonder if his mate Kendall Jenner would approve?

WATCH: New Short Film Takes Aim At Kylie Jenner’s Haters

Let’s be honest, Kylie Jenner really cops it from the online trolls. Whether it’s a cruel Dolmio grin meme or speculation about a boob job, the girl just can’t seem to catch a break.

It turns out she’s not the only one this is taking its toll on though, with a filmmaker deciding to make a short film about the youngest Kardashian-Jenner member in a bid to shed light on how damaging trolls and “aggressive comments” can be.

Filmmaker Will Reiben utilised one of Kylie’s makeup tutorials for the video, “played in reverse to symbolise that the comments are stripping Kylie of her self esteem and identity” while a deep, anonymous voice reads out legit comments found on articles about her while in Australia

A lot of the derogatory comments focus of the comparison Kylie gets to her big sisters Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, saying “I think Kylie is obsessed with Kim and trying to look like her” and “Kylie looks much older than Kendall who’s naturally gorgeous”. (more…)

When Jimmy Fallon isn’t dancing with Jennifer Lawrence in hilarious skits, he’s designing genius accessories. No, seriously. The host of The Tonight Show noticed that the men in his office were stashing their phones in their blazer pockets. No big deal, except an iPhone sticking out of a blazer looked a bit unseemly. Like all great designers do, Fallon came up with a solution to that problem: iPhone pocket squares. Duh.

Kudos to Teen Vogue for Giving Model Fernanda Ly the Holiday Cover (Forum Buzz)

Teen Vogue has been giving us plenty of model covers lately and you won’t find us complaining. Back in August, our forums fell completely head over heels for the issue with beauties Aya Jones, Imaan Hammam and Lineisy Montero on the front. Continuing to challenge and deliver diversity, Teen Vogue welcomes Fernanda Ly as its December/January cover star. The Louis Vuitton campaign star with an ever-growing portfolio was shot by Daniel Jackson and stuns in a sweater by the French fashion house in the eye-catching cover image.

Members of our forums were in awe. “I actually really enjoy the cover and editorial. Teen Vogue is so often flat and dull, but between this cover and that stellar cover with Aya, Imaan, and Lineisy, I’m starting to see a change for the better,” applauded Moofins.

“I love the image, very fresh and modern. It’s great that they’re giving the opportunity to a not-so-known model,” contributed kokobombon. (more…)
