These Lip Tints Are Made From Your Favorite Wine (Sun, 04 Dec 2016 06:00:41 -0500)

You may think few things in life bring more joy than a glass of vino, but that’s only because you haven’t heard of these wine-infused lip tints. 


Labiotte, the company behind the vibrant lip tints, uses a red wine extract called sepivinol. Labiotte claims the ingredient is an anti-aging antioxidant that can work wonders on your lips. And best of all, the lip tints come in adorable miniature wine bottles in six different shades. 


Could life as a wine lover be any more exciting right now?

Lego Donald Trump Makes Christmas Anything But Great Again (Sat, 03 Dec 2016 04:07:04 -0500)




This Lego Donald Trump will permanently be on the naughty list.


The plastic version of the president-elect seizes control of the North Pole just two days after his inauguration, in Alisha Brophy and Scott Miles’ latest stop-motion animated video.


And as Santa Claus, he immediately sets to work in reshaping the holidays to be exactly how he wants them ― after a little help from Russian President Vladimir Putin.





What follows is a perfect parody referencing some of Trump’s most controversial moments of the past year.


There are references to Trump’s spat with the cast of the “Hamilton” musical and his ejection of a baby from a campaign rally.


The clever clip also mentions Trump’s disgusting comments about women.


“When you’re Santa, you can do whatever. Grab ’em by the antlers,” says “Santa” Trump.


He even calls “for a total ban on Gingerbread men,” in reference to his campaign vow to bar Muslims from entering the U.S.


Check out the full video above.

Victoria's Secret Puts Record Number Of Asian Models On Its Runway (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 22:48:53 -0500)

The luxurious world of lingerie is embracing diversity.


Victoria’s Secret’s world-famous annual fashion show included a record number of Asian women this year, with Ming Xi, Sui He, Xiao Wen Ju and Liu Wen ― all Chinese supermodels with massive Instagram followings.


Compare that with the two Asian models, out of a total of 44 women, who were in the show last year.


The 51 models strutted down the Paris runway Wednesday, but the annual show will premiere on TV on Monday night. The incredibly popular lingerie special will be broadcasted in more than 190 countries and typically pulls in an audience of around 6.6 million people.


The four Chinese models shared their excitement earlier this week by releasing a group photo of them posing, with peace signs raised, in front of the pink Victoria’s Secret banner in Paris.

Victoria’s Secret had been criticized for not featuring a more racially diverse lineup of models over the course of the fashion show’s 21-year history. In fact, no Asian model had walked the VS runway until 2009, according to Yahoo Style.


In recent years, however, the lingerie giant has ramped up its efforts to be inclusive.


Last year, Angolan model Maria Borges was the first black Victoria’s Secret model to wear natural hair down the runway. And this year, you can expect to see several models of color rocking a variety of natural tresses ― Afros, loose curls and all.


Similarly, Sui He has appeared in every Victoria’s Secret annual fashion show since 2011.

The lingerie brand’s decision to double down on Chinese models for the 2016 show may have been a strategic move as well, Yahoo Style reports.


Victoria’s Secret slipped into the Chinese market in 2015 with beauty and accessory shops and, after seeing success in the market, announced plans to open its signature bra and panty stores in the country.


And, as Reuters reported in July, the market for high-end lingerie in China has skyrocketed in five years, amounting to an $18 billion industry.


Victoria’s Secret echoed the Chinese models’ excitement by posting a photo of three of them on their own account, greeting them with a traditional “Ni hao” on Instagram.

Unhappy Dog Wearing Pants And Sweater Found Roaming In Park (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:59:35 -0500)


A lost dog that police in Washington state picked up this week wasn’t wearing identification ― but he was wearing pants and a festive sweater.






“Is this your dog?” the Bellevue Police Department tweeted, noting that the pup “was wearing a sweater and blue pants, and was very angry.”


The photo has been retweeted thousands of times and has garnered plenty of theories to explain the dog’s attitude (and to make a few digs at Bellevue, a Seattle suburb that’s become increasingly wealthy).














Police initially brought the dog to VCA Alpine Animal Hospital. Kristen Ashton, an administrator there, said the canine had no immediately apparent medical issues. Staff estimated he was around three years old, and appeared to be a Jack Russell terrier and Chihuahua mix.


The dog has been at Regional Animal Services of King County since Wednesday, according to data on the shelter site. The shelter holds animals for 72 hours to see if anyone arrives to claim a missing pet, employee Chelsea Eykel told The Huffington Post. If no one comes forward, they can be put up for adoption.



While he may have been angry when police picked him up, the doggie fashion plate appears to have calmed down. Eykel said the shelter hasn’t given him a formal temperament test, but so far, “he’s been fine.” A much more mellow photo of the little guy is up on the shelter’s site.


He’s still wearing the pants and sweater in the photo, but Eykel assured HuffPost that they have since been removed.

Boy With Down Syndrome Stars In Ad After Mom Fights For Inclusion (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:48:54 -0500)

After a modeling agency initially chose to not submit her son with Down syndrome for a casting, Meagan Nash began a campaign for more inclusion in advertising. Now, her son is breaking barriers as the star of a new ad.


In October, Nash asked a local modeling agency to submit her then 15-month-old son Asher for a casting. The agency initially didn’t, explaining that the casting “didn’t specify special needs.” After an understanding conversation with the agency, they promised to submit him, but Nash felt the need to go further. 


In a Facebook post, she called for more inclusion in advertising and wrote that she would love to see her son modeling for OshKosh B’gosh and Carter’s, its parent company. It wasn’t long before OshKosh B’gosh contacted Nash to set up a meeting, and now just a few weeks later Asher is officially an OshKosh B’gosh model. 



Wearing an “#ELFIE” shirt, Asher has been included in holiday promos on OshKosh B’gosh’s site. According to Nash, he is set to appear in social media ads as well. 


Nash told The Huffington Post that Asher’s shoot was “fantastic” and that she “couldn’t be prouder” of her son. She also said she’s glad more companies are being more inclusive with their advertising.


“I set out to spread awareness on an issue we face in the world today, and people actually not only took notice, but they are also wanting to spread awareness and make a change like OshKosh did,” she said.


According to his mom, Asher has been asked to work more with OshKosh B’gosh as well as a handful of other brands.


Keep an eye out. We’ll probably be seeing a lot of this kid.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Broadcast Used To Be Intensely Creepy (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:46:41 -0500)




You’ll never watch “My Best Friend’s Wedding” the same way again.


The year was 2001. Adriana Lima was 20 years old, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was 6 years old and for some reason, Rupert Everett was the host. 


If it bothers you that a televised broadcast of beautiful women parading down a runway in their underwear is one of the most highly anticipated spectacles of the holiday season, wait until you see this cringeworthy, 15-year-old footage we dug up on YouTube. Folks, we’ve come a long way.


Everett, giving off decidedly non-Prince Charming vibes, spends an uncomfortable 40 minutes saying things like, “The security is tight and so are the girls,” and calling attractive women “delicious crumpets.”


All the blame can’t be put on Everett’s shoulders. There’s also a mirror cam, which catches the girls unknowingly as they adjust their outfits and check themselves out. Anouck Lepere, one of the models who walked in the show that year, sums it up: “Imagine you don’t know and you’re standing there in your little underwear, your bra and you’re like putting your breasts good in front of that mirror, and it’s on television.” Ick.


Everett alludes to a night spent in Milan with a then 17-year-old Karolina Kurkova (he was 42 at the time). He also uncomfortably canoodles with Tyra Banks. And our personal worst, the moment he advises viewers to “accidentally lock” their “wives and girlfriends in the attic” so he can give them “a virtual tour of Heidi Klum’s” body, on which he then rubs his face:





And kissing his way up her legs:





The first two videos in the series are the worst of it, but there is one last creepy moment at the end, in which Everett is seen half-undressed, naturally. 2001 isn’t the only year that a host of the show made us comfortable, but this one will haunt our dreams forever. 


Check out the first, second, thirdfourth and fifth videos.

Let's Talk About The Natural Hair That Slayed The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 11:50:46 -0500)

Gorgeous curls, coils and kinks made a few jaw-dropping appearances at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday in Paris. 



Several models of color ditched the hot combs, weaves and extensions to flawlessly rock their natural tresses as they strutted down the runway.


Jourdana Phillips sported her fierce blond cut; Harieth Paul rocked her teeny weeny Afro; Alanna Arrington let her loose curls hang; and Maria Borges wore her Afro for the second consecutive year while sporting a beautiful outfit which served as her “love letter to my beloved continent, Africa.” 





Borges, born in Angola, made history last year by becoming the first Victoria’s Secret model to wear her ‘fro in the show. Seeing even more ladies flaunt their hair in its natural state isn’t just good for creating a more diverse fashion landscape, it’s downright empowering.



More of this shea butter magic, please.


The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs Monday, Dec. 5 at 10 PM EST on CBS.

Trump's Tie Is Held Together With Scotch Tape (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 10:32:17 -0500)

By Jake Woolf for GQ.


Make America tie their ties correctly again. #TIEGATE.



Donald Trump's ties have never been great, both the ones he wears and the ones he sells (which are often the same thing). We can overlook the fact that he uses a Windsor Knot over our preferred four-in-hand style, but the biggest factor contributing to his menswear fail is that he just ties his neckwear way too long, a good four inches beyond where your tie should stop. And today, we learned a very unfortunate by product of that sartorial choice: Donald Trump, the future president of the United States, scotch tapes the back of his tie to the front.


You see, because the President-elect doesn't leave enough slack on the thin end to reach the built-in loop, he's left with an unmoored sliver of silk that threatens his commanding suited man presence. And again, his solution is to use scotch tape, the very adhesive that's sitting next to you at your desks right now, to connect the two pieces. Sad!



To the Trump supporters who will even support this: Do not say that as a taller guy (he stands 6'3"), he needs a longer tie. If Kevin Durant can find ties that work for him, Mr. Trump certainly can. Don't say that as president, he has bigger MAGA-related things to deal with than worrying about his neckties. This country being held together right now about as well as his tie here. Plus, it takes longer to tape your tie than it does to simply do it the right way, so this isn't a good use of his time. As a man who is almost never seen without a tie on and who sells ties with his name on him, you'd expect him to know better. If the design of his ties are really this flawed, wouldn't he have made a note somewhere along the line instead of relying on scotch tape?

This entire situation could be avoided if Trump made use of a GQ essential if there ever was one, a tie bar. The simple metal bar locks in both levels of a tie in place to a shirt's placket. We may not have seen a sitting president wear a tie clip since the LBJ-era, but if the alternative is scotch tape, Trump should probably consider it. If you need any pointers on how to knot it up the right way, we've got you covered, Donald. But for know, we have one thing to say about this ultimate menswear head-scratcher:

Don't Be Fooled By This Romantic Holiday Card Photo (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 08:30:20 -0500)


All is not as it seems in the cheesy holiday snap, above.


It may look like a couple is romantically embracing beside a bunch of Christmas presents in the image’s thumbnail.


But see what happens when it’s zoomed out…






Single college student John Olmstead decided to poke fun at the romantic holiday card genre after seeing a similar spoof online, reports BuzzFeed.


I thought it was hilarious, so I wanted to do it, but my arms are too skinny to look like legs,” the 22-year-old from Mattoon, Illinois, told Mashable. “So, I had to improvise and shove my feet into those tiny boots.”


He posted the photograph to Twitter on Wednesday, and it’s since garnered more than 90,000 likes and almost 50,000 retweets.


Many fellow Twitter users admitted that Olmstead’s parody struck a chord:

Magnetic Face Masks Are The Beauty Craze You Have To Try (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 06:00:30 -0500)

Face masks come in all different varieties. They’ve been made with ingredients like tea-tree oil, clay, and charcoal ― but if you’re looking for something a little more interesting to try, now’s your chance. 


Iron-based, magnetic masks have been taking the beauty industry by storm. While most masks take a splash of water to wipe the creamy substance from your face, the only way you can remove these iron-infused masks is with a magnet.
