Finding new ways to be a victim: Lack of pockets in women’s clothing now equals “inequality”

Because of this story, women are now calling for more pockets in their clothing. Next they’ll be complaining about how lumpy they look when their pockets are filled.

Some people just enjoy finding something to whine about.

From Fox News: Now that’s #squadgoals.

One savvy bride made sure her bridesmaids looked – and felt – their best on her wedding day, outfitting her six pals in bespoke, floor-length gowns complete with practical pockets. A photo of the bridal squad in a “power pose” on the church altar has since gone majorly viral online as Twittizens call for more pockets in women’s clothing.

On Jan. 23, bridesmaid Nell Goddard shared a hilarious photo from her friend Eve Paterson’s recent London wedding to Twitter in a post that has since garnered well over 10,000 likes and sparked more than 2,300 comments.

In the image, Paterson fiercely poses in front of a traditional altar with her hands in the (unexpected) pockets of her wedding gown, as her surrounding “bride squad” does the same. “My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses ALL HAD POCKETS. And yes, we did use them for storing snacks, thank you for asking,” Goddard captioned the cheeky pic.

“The dresses were great. Eve was clear from the start that she wanted her bridesmaids not only to feel comfortable, but also be practically equipped for all that the day involved,” Goddard told Fox News. “Each bridesmaid got to choose her own style of dress, and when we realized we could ‘add pockets’ for a few extra pounds, it seemed like a no-brainer… although it must be said that you’d never dream of having to pay extra for pockets on a groom’s suit!”

“I think these dresses have proved it’s possible to look good, feel comfortable, and be practically equipped for the day. Everyone who noticed the pockets loved them, and they were incredibly useful” she added.

In the hours since, the image has been met with massive applause, as countless Twitter users praise the practicality of pockets in gowns for both brides and bridesmaids – and opine that the detail deserves to be more frequently added in women’s clothing designs.

“Oh my god! I might have to divorce husband just so I can do this!!” one fan of the dresses wrote.

“Divine! You all look magnificent and adequately equipped for whatever the day may throw at you!” another exclaimed. “Truly she knows how to make a blessed day be truly blessed,” one agreed. “I really wish I’d thought of pockets when I got married. Such a little thing yet so important,” another mused.

The bride, meanwhile, told BBC that the custom detail was a no-brainer for the nuptials. “It’s just so rare for women’s clothing to be practical. It might seem ridiculous to most men, but we often have to choose between convenience and looking good,” Paterson, a 24-year-old charity worker from Cambridge, England, said.

“When you have them custom made-to-measure, it only cost $7 extra to add pockets, so really it just felt like a no-brainer!” Goddard similarly told The Independent of the KF Bridal creation, detailing that the crew carried schedules and agendas for the big day in the special pockets.

The bride, too, acknowledged that though the general deficit of sufficient pockets in women’s clothing is a minor issue, it is a topic certainly worthy of discussion and further exploration.

“The more momentum this [topic] gets, the more we’re keen to say that we know this is a relatively small issue, and there are far bigger issues for women around the world! It’s just that the more those who have a platform are able to call out the little inequalities (like pockets!) the more we hope the bigger issues can be alleviated for women globally as well,” Paterson told Fox News.

As noted by the Independent, an August 2018 study from culture site The Pudding discovered that the pockets on women’s jeans were approximately 48 percent smaller and 6.5 percent narrower than those in men’s jeans. (Maybe because women, on the average, are smaller and narrower than men?) The Pudding team analyzed the pocket sizes of 80 pairs of jeans produced by 20 major brands including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Levi’s for the study.

Libtard Amy Schumer launches new clothing line to empower women, proceeds to benefit her non-profit organization

I guess seeing Amy in this fashion is better than what we had to see in the photo below…

 

Pirelli Calendar 2016 photo

From Hollywood Reporter: Saks Off 5th announced the launch of Le Cloud on Tuesday, a ready-to-wear collection of wardrobe essentials that caters to women of all shapes and sizes. Le Cloud is designed by Amy Schumer and celebrity stylist and costume designer Leesa Evans.

Thirty percent of net proceeds from sales will be donated to not-for-profit organization Community Partners in support of the STYLEFUND project, which was founded by Schumer and Evans. The initiative aims to empower women from all economic backgrounds through the use of clothing.

(From their web site: “Our goal is to simplify the process of getting dressed by helping women better understand their silhouette – creating true confidence.”

I didn’t know that getting dressed was so complicated.)

“My instinct is to be authentic and to empower women of all ages and sizes to do the same. We are making beautiful, comfortable and wearable clothing that is accessible to real women,” said Schumer in a statement. “A Le Cloud customer will feel confident and powerful when wearing these pieces. We take our product seriously, but not ourselves.”

The name of the clothing line was inspired by Schumer’s interest in having her clothes feel like a cloud.

The collection includes ready-to-wear separates such as tops, pants, skirts, a jumpsuit and outerwear. The products were designed with soft and “light as a cloud” fabric and come in classic colors like navy, camel, hunter, charcoal and black. Sizes range from XS to XXL, while the retail prices go from $38 to $248.

“When designing Le Cloud, we approached each style with the goal of creating shapes that make women feel good about themselves, so their unique personalities can shine through,” said Evans. “When you find those silhouettes, they become your daily uniform. It’s both an emotional and positive connection to clothing that we’re trying to create through our brand.

“This is a first-of-its-kind partnership for us at Saks Off 5th and the essence of what Amy and Leesa are working to accomplish through Le Cloud is something we’re proud to support,” said Tom Ott, chief merchant at Saks Off 5th. “We feel confident about adding Le Cloud to our fashion offering, knowing there is a desire among shoppers for more inclusive and stylish apparel.”

Le Cloud will be available exclusively online and in-store at Saks Off 5th’s 57th Street flagship in New York City and the Beverly Connection location in Los Angeles.

Libtard Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior campaign celebrating Mexican heritage slammed for cultural appropriation

Dior Instagram photo

Proggies always got their panties in a wad about something…

From Yahoo: Dior is facing backlash for cultural appropriation in campaign using Jennifer Lawrence.

In brand posts about the Dior Cruise 2019 collection, Lawrence is seen being photographed in the hills of California and heard talking about the indigenous people who motivated the brand’s designs. Although the campaign images are aesthetically pleasing, most people are displeased with Dior’s inability to secure a different face for the collection — namely, comedian Phoebe Robinson who took to her Instagram to make a statement against the brand.

Dior and Jennifer Lawrence wanna celebrate traditional Mexican women riders thru a ‘modern lens’…by having a rich white woman named Jennifer be the face of this campaign? And like they couldn’t think of a better landscape to shoot than in California?!” the 2 Dope Queens actress wrote. “The audacity to call this s*** modern because it’s worn by a white woman is ignorant and gross, but unfortunately, not surprising.”

Other Instagram users have commented on the post to echo Robinson’s statement. “I’m extremely disappointed that yet again, major brands are using a rich white woman to promote other cultures. This is cultural appropriation not appreciation. Do better,” one person wrote. Another said, “My understanding of the word celebrate is different than Dior’s.”

However, others are praising Dior for celebrating another culture and acknowledging where the inspiration came from. Some have even pointed out that Lawrence has had a contract with the brand for years.

“The company is Dior and their brand ambassador is Jennifer Lawrence. They are honoring another culture with love and admiration! Nothing wrong with that!” someone said. “It is 2018 and people should know how fashion works. The woman is just doing her job and good on her too. Maybe if a woman with Mexican heritage was the brand ambassador for Dior then she would have represented this campaign,” wrote another.

Dior has yet to publicly respond to the controversy and didn’t immediately reply to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment.

Celine Dion launches gender-neutral children’s clothing line to “encourage dialogue of equality”

So women are supposed to be proud of their gender yet teach their children to be gender neutral? Pick a side proggies and try to be consistent with your messaging.

From People Magazine: Céline Dion is passing on her love of fashion to the next generation.

The stylish singer, 50, partnered with the gender-neutral children’s line NUNUNU to create her own collection featuring over 70 stereotype-free styles for kids aged zero to 14Y.

She worked on her line, aptly named CELINUNUNU, with the brand’s founders Iris Adler and Tali Milchberg, and simultaneously announced and released the capsule on Tuesday. (Check it out on celinununu.com.)

“I’ve always loved NUNUNU and what they represent,” Dion said in a statement. “Partnering with Iris and Tali to encourage a dialogue of equality and possibility makes so much sense.”

She continued, “CELINUNUNU lets children choose outside stereotypes and norms so they can bring from within their own tastes and preferences. We help them feel free, creative, inspired, respectful of one another and happy in the world.”

With this release, the singer and designer wants to encourage both parents and kids to break free of typical children’s clothing clichés and think outside the pink-for-girls and blue-for-boys mindset.

Therefore, the line delivers mini versions of fashion-forward looks. Dion created cool prints (like stars, alphabets and plus signs), shirts that say “NEW ORDER,” harem pants and skull-covered baby hats in a palette of white, black, yellow and denim. There’s even a leather jacket for kids that costs $290, though most prices fall between $50 and $100.

For the “My Heart Will Go On” songstress, it’s a personal mission to expand people’s mindsets when it come to fashion, which is why Dion aligned so much with the brand’s mission: “Fashion has the power to shape people’s minds.”

Vague standards: Vogue apologizes for “controversial” Kendall Jenner photo

Pay attention white girls: This is cultural appropriation…

 

While this is not…

Why is it ok for non-white girls to imitate a white girls’ look?

And why can’t a girl just mix it up a bit and do whatever she wants with her own hair?

Liberals and their hypersensitive standards…

From Hollywood Reporter: Vogue is back in the hot seat after a pair of Instagram posts displaying Kendall Jenner in an Afro-like hairstyle were accused of cultural appropriation.

The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras,” the Conde Nast publication said in a statement to E! News on Tuesday. “We apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”

The instigating images — promotional photos for the publication’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund — showed Jenner wearing a curly, voluminous hairstyle that many interpreted as being a take on an Afro. In a post on Thursday, Jenner posed with model Imaan Hammam, whose hair was styled straight. In a subsequent post about the Fashion Fund on Saturday Jenner posed alone in the hairstyle.

“FOR YEARS WE have been penalized about our looks and especially our hair, It is a slap in the face when non-Blacks try to imitate our look,” one Instagram user wrote in a comment on the initial photo.

“I like Kendall but why didn’t they use an ethnic model who has hair like that,” another wrote of the initial photo.

American Vogue and a few of its sister publications have come under fire multiple times in the past year for features accused of cultural appropriation or sending a tone-deaf message. A Vogue Italia cover was accused of showing model Gigi Hadid in “blackface” in May, while last year Vogue Arabia sparked controversy for styling Rihanna in Queen Nefertiti-like garments. The same publication was called tone-deaf when it featured Saudi Princess Hayfa bint Abdullah Al Saud in a photo this year showing her behind the wheel of a car: The feature celebrated the lifting of driving restrictions for women in Saudi Arabia, but the princess’ father, the late king, enforced the women-only driving ban.

Earlier this year, American Vogue angered some women’s advocates online when it published a sympathetic story about Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, in May. In an editor’s letter, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour wrote, “blaming her for any of it, as too many have in our gladiatorial digital age, is wrong.”

The demasculinization of men rolls on: Male models wear pregnant bellies on the runway

male model pregnant getty image

Celebrating the impossible: Male pregnancy/Getty Image


I won’t celebrate fakery.
From Yahoo: It’s men’s fashion week over in London right now, so there are lots of runway images hitting the wire, but the ones from designer Xander Zhou‘s show on Monday really have people talking. That’s because he had many of his male models walk the catwalk with fake pregnant bellies.
Some wore tight T-shirts lifted up so the prosthetic stomach was in full view, and others clutched their covered gut region with nurturing arms, which, as Fashionista pointed out, helped distinguish their fake preggo stomachs from, like, beer bellies. At least one model wore a shirt that said, “New World Baby.”
As far as the meaning behind the prosthetics, the brand had this to say post-show on Instagram: “At Supernatural, Extraterrestrial & Co., we’re prepared to welcome a future of male pregnancy.

This is feminism: Singer wears vagina pants and shows off fake pubic hair in video that "celebrates self love and sexuality"

janelle monae
I’ve never heard of this rapper/singer Janelle Monáe (pictured center in above photo), a 32-year-old American who has said she “only dates androids” which represent the new “Other.”
From Daily Mail: Janelle Monáe causes quite the stir with her new music video – not with the song itself, but rather the clip’s incredibly provocative content, that includes the singer dancing around in a pair of flamboyant vagina pants and flaunting fake pubic hair.
Indeed, the 32-year-old seems to have taken a great deal of inspiration from the female form when it came to creating the video for PYNK, placing vaginal imagery and innuendo front and center.
‘PYNK is a brash celebration of creation, self love, sexuality, and pussy power!’ Monáe explains on YouTube. ‘PYNK is the color that unites us all, for pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere… PYNK is where the future is born….’
Apparently, this translates to the singer and her backup dancers donning vagina-inspired outfits for a portion of the video, and invoking images associated with female genitalia courtesy of a raw oyster, a pink ring donut and a pink grapefruit sliced in half.
And the provocative feminine imagery certainly doesn’t end there. In another scene, Monáe can be seen dancing in a bedroom wearing a pair of panties featuring the words ‘Sex Cells’ embroidered on the front.
The camera also pans in on another woman wearing similar panties that feature the words, ‘I grab back’. 
Fans of her music have likened the video the work of American modernist artist Georgia O’Keefe, who rose to critical acclaim for her flower paintings that were likened to vaginas.
And even actress Elizabeth Banks took to Twitter to put forward her theory that the song was clearly about female genitalia. ‘Whoa, vagina pants,’ she tweeted to her 2.35 million followers.
Directed by Emma Westenberg, the video also features Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson, who appeared in Monáe’s sexually charged Make Me Feel video in February.  In PYNK, Thompson can be seen emerging from Monáe’s thighs which are clad in the vagina pants.
And in Make Me Feel, Thompson plays Monáe’s female love interest as the singer flits between flirting with a man and a woman.
For months, there’s been growing speculation about whether Monáe and Hollywood star Tessa Thompson are in a romantic relationship.
However neither woman has issued an official statement to confirm or deny the gossip buzzing around the status of their relationship, and in 2013 when Monáe was asked is she was ‘into girls’ on the radio show Sway in the Morning, she refused to define her sexuality.
‘There’s nothing wrong with being bisexual. There’s nothing wrong with being a lesbian or gay. I am an advocate. I have friends who are in same-sex relationships. I think that love has no sexual orientation,’ she said.

Liberalism is a mental disorder: Fashion designers debut vagina-themed collection at New York Fashion Week

vagina fashion
Perfect for the feminazis who support the Women’s March.
From Daily Mail: A pair of Berlin-based designers treated the New York Fashion Week crowd to an intriguing ugly vagina-themed runway show.
Nan Li and Emilia Pfohl, the duo behind Namilia, presented their Spring Summer 2018 collection on Saturday night. Models walked in eye-catching ugly ensembles marrying pastel colors with darker tones, many with vagina embellishments from shoulders to toes.
The two designers managed to integrate lady bits shapes into the geometry of their outfits, such as the opening of a blazer, or a pair of puff sleeves. Their finale dress consisted of a memorable Marie-Antoinette-style gown wide enough to take up the entire runway, with pink and red vaginas etched all across the skirt part.
Pfohl and Li, who met at the University Of The Arts Berlin, were inspired for their collection by The Indiscreet Jewels, Denis Diderots’ first novel, published anonymously in 1748. In the work of fiction, the French philosopher uses an allegory to tell the story of King Louis XV of France, who in Diderot’s novel owns a ring with the power to make women’s genitals (their ‘jewels’) talk.
This is not the first time the designers, who describe their clothing as ‘an aesthetic tool and a visual platform to express their beliefs, conflicts and dreams’, have used human anatomy as a source of inspiration.
Their Spring Summer 2016 collection, titled My P***y, My Choice’, featured penises as a central element of its designs. 
That collection was their first, and the two have since released four more. For the Fall Winter 2016 season, their theme of choice was Feel The Heat. Spring Summer 2017 became You’re Just A Toy, while Fall Winter 2017 was Join The Resistance.

Feminism promotes obesity: Extremely overweight actress Chrissy Metz is "inspiring"

chrissy metz

This is “inspiring”

Chrissy Metz is an actress who is 5’4” and weighs 400 pounds according to bodymeasurement.org. The CDC has a body mass index (BMI) calculator that measures Chrissy’s BMI as 30.0 and above – she is obese. Her normal weight range should be 108 to 145 pounds.
People who are overweight or obese are at higher risk for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. According to Stanford Health Care, because of Chrissy’s obesity she is also subject to bone and joint disease, heart disease, sleep apnea, cancer, and metabolic syndrome (a clustering of medical conditions).
Yet in today’s society, “body shaming” is taboo. Thanks to feminism, we are told to be inclusive, body accepting, body positive, loving, and blah, blah, blah.
The “fat acceptance movement” and “fat feminism” do nothing to promote healthy women. To accept an obese body is to imply that one has no control over their behaviors. Our bodies are changeable and an obese person should be able to accept that truth. By resigning themselves to the impression that their bodies can’t be changed, they just perpetuate victimhood.
How about telling the truth for once? Chrissy is obese and there is nothing inspiring or empowering about that.
From Yahoo: The fashion industry is becoming more inclusive — at a snail’s pace, perhaps, but with palpable momentum behind the march of progress. It’s largely thanks not to the industry itself but to everyday people, whose beauty and bodies have long been overlooked and who have now stepped forward, demanding to be seen.
Chastity Garner and CeCe Olisa are two of those people, and they’ve stepped into view first as plus-size lifestyle influencers and bloggers and presently as founders of the popular annual event known as theCURVYcon. Now in its third year, the body-positive, curve-embracing event will take place in New York City on Sept. 8 and 9, bringing designers, fitness experiences, influencers, and speakers to town — including none other than Chrissy Metz, who stars on This Is Us, to deliver the keynote address (you heard it hear first, folks). Another first? TheCURVYcon will be live-streamed on Yahoo Style, bringing insightful conversation to millions of people who can’t make the IRL event.
Olisa and Garner are dedicated to promoting visibility of different body types within the plus-size world. That, in addition to Metz’s Emmy nomination, made the beloved actress the ideal woman to represent theCURVYcon this year. “A lot of times, in our space, the women who are celebrated are hourglass women — they’re a size 10 to 14, like the perfect version of a ‘plus-size’ woman,” Garner tells Yahoo Style. “I feel like [for] having size diversity and getting out of that hourglass shape, Chrissy Metz is a great representative for that. We love Ashley Graham, but she’s definitely the poster child of what a plus-size model ‘should’ look like. Someone like Chrissy Metz, her body type is a little bit different — we’re so happy to celebrate that.”
Olisa adds: “Representation is so important, and just seeing people who look like you anywhere is great. So when the hottest show on television has a very visibly plus-size girl who is cute, and falling in love, and doing her thing on the show, it’s inspiring.
While current conversations might make it easy to believe that such a space for plus-size women has always existed in the fashion community (during New York Fashion Week, no less), the reality is that it’s a recent phenomenon, spurred on by Garner and Olisa’s insistence that the industry make room.
“If inclusion isn’t happening by invitation, then we’re just going to move in ourselves,” Olisa tells Yahoo Style.

When SJWs bash their own: Vogue magazine apologizes for "gender-fluidity" cover story

vogue cover
Back in March, SJWs slammed Vogue for their lack of diversity on the cover that celebrated “the modern American woman” by featuring models of different ethnicities, skin tones and body types. Across social media, Vogue was criticized for staying inside the fashion industry’s narrow parameters (oh the horror!).
Now SJWs are upset that Vogue dare to tackle gender fluidity in the wrong manner. Heaven forbid a fashion magazine features models who talk about clothes swapping.
Seems likes SJWs are just as insufferable as feminists when you don’t follow their rules.
From Fox News: Vogue is sorry. The magazine released a statement on Friday apologizing for their recent cover story featuring Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik.
In an interview with the publication, Hadid and Malik playfully talk about borrowing each other’s clothes, which led to the magazine titling their piece, “Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are part of a new generation embracing gender fluidity.”
“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Hadid says in the article. “Yeah, but same,” replies Malik. “What was that T-shirt I borrowed the other day?”
Vogue readers quickly took to social to voice their concerns over the piece, calling the magazine out for not featuring real people who identify as non-binary or gender-fluid. “Think Vogue is a bit confused on what gender fluidity is! Wearing your gf’s T-shirt does not make you gender fluid,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Is Vogue aware that there r actual, real life, gender fluid people out there,” another person wrote. “Vogue went from 100 to 0 real quick,” shared another reader.
Following backlash on social media, Vogue issued an apology.
“The story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture,” read a statement by a Vogue spokeswoman. “We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit we missed the mark.”
“We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity.”
