Only six plus-size women walked the runway at Fall 2016 Fashion Week, according to our most recent Diversity Report. Even with those dismal stats, plus-size men fare far worse in terms of representation.

IMG Models hopes to spark a change. The famed agency just launched a plus-size men’s division, according to WWD. Ivan Bart, president at IMG Models, told the publication, “The body positive messaging and size diversity is something that’s relevant and something that continues to be on everybody’s mind. We have to extend the conversation for men.” (more…)

Kerry Washington’s Second Cover for ELLE Features Some Very Questionable Styling (Forum Buzz)

American ELLE‘s last edition ushered in a redesign and the magazine continues to exercise its revamped look with its April cover. Returning for the second time, actress Kerry Washington takes to the front of ELLE‘s latest. Our forums have been pretty hard on the Scandal star in the past, who has unfortunately appeared on some disastrous magazine covers*cough*. This time around, Kerry stood before the lens of ELLE favorite Dan Martensen and took things to the beach wearing a gray sweatshirt teamed with some (no doubt, very expensive) jewelry.

Watch: Kim and Kanye Do Their Own Version of Carpool Karaoke on Snapchat

Who knew Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat would be so entertaining? Launched on March 9, Kim’s snaps are the Kim and Kanye Take LA show that never made it to TV.

Kanye famously barred E! Network from filming North West on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but she has plenty of cameos on Kim’s Snapchat. There’s North adorably saying she’s scared of the filters on Snapchat (which she pronounces “Chop Chop”) and later, she’s chastising Ariel while watching The Little Mermaid (“Are you serious?” she asks the Disney princess, clearly taking after her father). She also gives her stuffed animals glamorous makeovers. (more…)

Much like North West on Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat, we’ve been playing in makeup since we were toddlers. Our only goal was to emulate our favorite Disney princesses from Pocahontas’ bronze skin to Ariel’s perfect contour. Tal Peleg, a visual artist from Israel, puts our childhood makeup looks to shame. She recreates scenes from classic fairy tales, art and movies with makeup for the most mesmerizing beauty looks you’ve ever laid eyes on. (more…)
