MAC Cosmetics posted a beautiful image of Ugandan model Aamito Lagum’s lips and was met with a slew of racist comments. Instagram users described her facial features using racial slurs and some even compared her to an animal. Apparently, the same full lips that Kylie Jenner pays for — and is praised for — aren’t attractive on women of color.

To her credit, Lagum was graceful and dignified in the face of racist trolls. The America’s Next Top Model champ, who also walked in Yeezy Season 3, responded by encouraging self-love:  (more…)

Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue has fans spinning around, after announcing her engagement to British actor Joshua Sasse in the most adorably understated way. After six months of going steady, Kyles and her superbly bearded boyfy announced their plans to tie the knot by placing a very tradish notice in the UK’s Daily Telegraph:

Already one of the most celebrated designers at New York Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs now has the distinction of sending the highest heels down the runway. Ever. For his Fall 2016 show, models graced the catwalk in vertiginous platforms at least three stories high.

Despite walking in stilts, the cast, which included Lady Gaga and Kendall Jenner, managed to walk in their stilts, ahem, shoes without falling. A true Fashion Week feat. Thankfully, Jacobs let them practice before the show began. Not sure how long it would take to master walking on top of cinder blocks, but I digress.

Our favorite Spanish fashion glossies are killing it this month, with Vogue Spain serving up a breathtaking cover and now Marie Claire Spain knocks it out the park with its latest unveiling. The magazine’s annual Grand Prix awards took place back in November, which saw transgender model  Andreja Pejic take home the trophy for model of the year. On top of breaking barriers and doing the LGBTQ community proud, Marie Claire just handed Andreja the March cover in true celebratory fashion.

After undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2014, the Australian beauty reappeared on the fashion scene walking the runway for Giles Deacon’s Fall 2015 show at London Fashion Week. Shortly after, the Australian beauty became the first transgender model to appear inside the page of American Vogue and landed a cosmetic contract with Make Up For Ever, which has just been renewed for a second year. Marie Claire‘s latest marks a momentous occasion as Andreja’s first fashion cover as a woman. Photographed by Pablo Zamora, Andreja looks effortless and at ease, working a Versace number selected by Jennifer Bauser.

Here’s to many more covers for Andreja in 2016!
