Scouted in London at the age of 22, handsome redhead Shane Lapper launched a successful career as a male model*. And even though Lapper was employed as an aspirational standard of male beauty, he always felt something wasn’t right: “I think I was about seven when I realized I should have been born a girl. I have five sisters, and I’d watch them all dress up and put on make up and I’d be so jealous.”

Meet Josh. He’s 12-years-old, 5′ tall, and weighs a “hefty 15 st” (210 lbs). He “wheezes as he moves.” He is also way, way too young to be the lede on a Daily Mail article about our moral obligation to make fat people feel bad about themselves. More
Cate Blanchett is a classy lady who pretty much always looks awesome on the red carpet. Imagine my surprise, then, when I opened the Daily Mail‘s website this morning and saw the headline “CATE BLANCHETT TAKES RARE FASHION MISSTEP.” Apparently, she’d really cocked up her look for the Parisian premiere of her new film Blue Jasmine (directed by Woody Allen).

Will leggings ever catch a break? Possibly the most misunderstood garment of our time, they are both unfairly maligned by their detractors, and incorrectly worn by well-meaning admirers. To add insult to injury, now some nebulously accredited “experts” are saying … More
Kate Moss made a splash when she hit the Fall 2011 Louis Vuitton runway in hot shorts with a cigarette in hand. I love seeing Moss on runways, in editorials, in campaigns, etc, because she’s a great model (you can’t have 20 year career if your only skill is being really skinny) and, at 37, her face is still extraordinary.
