Beyoncé’s New “Freedom” Video Features The Fiercest Little Girls

Beyoncé released a new video for her Lemonade track, "Freedom," yesterday, in honor of International Day of the Girl. In it, girls from around the world lip-sync and dance to the song in the fiercest and strongest way possible (à la Queen Bey). As they perform, statistics on violence against girls and pleas for freedom pop up around them. "End all forms of violence against girls. Put all girls in school. End the AIDS epidemic. End child marriage," one portion reads. "Girls around the world are fighting for their freedom every day. Join them," a message at the end of the video says. "Today is #DayoftheGirl. Girls around the world are fighting for their freedom every day," Bey captioned the video on Facebook. "Join me,...

Tom Sachs On His Obsession With Making Stuff


Tom Sachs is about to have his first child, a boy he's considering naming James Brown Sachs. The name is important to the artist because he considers the late music icon to be "one of my people," meaning someone who Sachs feels indebted to, someone who inspires him to step his game up as a creator. "It's James Brown who makes me want to make sculptures, not Brâncuși or someone who would make sense," he tells me in his studio as he preps for this month'sObjects of Devotion exhibition, his third solo show at Sperone Westwater Gallery in Soho.

The Centre Street studio is labyrinthine — a sprawling, multi-floor space he built out after moving into the ground floor in 1990. Everything...

Kmart Is Renaming Its “Plus-Sized” Section “Fabulously Sized”


It’s also adding way more styles in larger sizes.

Retailers across the country are finally waking up to the fact that yes, women who wear above a size 12 spend money on clothes, too! Now one of the biggest big-box chains in the country is realizing that adding more sizes boosts sales — and those sizes don't have to get slapped with a “plus-size” label, either. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Kmart is removing the term “plus-size” from its stores, and instead rolling out expanded “Fabulously Sized” sections at stores across the country.

The feminist icon sat front row at Prabal Gurung.

You can always count on star-studded front rows at New York Fashion Week but last night, the fashion set was in for a real surprise when Gloria Steinem graced the Prabal Gurung show with her presence.

Known to cast diverse models and use fashion to make political statements, Gurung was a fitting choice for Steinem's first NYFW experience. To celebrate the occasion, Steinem shared a picture holding up her invitation at the show. "There is a first time for everything, even at 83! First #nyfw show @prabalgurung, a...

Nick Minaj Calls Out The Fashion Industry For Appropriating Black Culture


"Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture."

Nicki Minaj has been making her usual rounds at NYFW this season, sitting front row and joining the party circuit, but that doesn't mean she'll refrain from pointing out the fashion world's flaws. After attending the Philipp Plein Spring 2018 show on Saturday, the superstar rapper took a dig at the industry during the designer's afterparty.

"Thank you Philipp Plein for including our culture," she said, according The Cut. "Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture, and then you don’t see a motherfucker that look anything like us in the front row half the time. So let’s make some noise for Philipp Plein tonight."

Here’s How The Iphone 8 Is Going To Work

As the world gears up for the release of the new iPhone 8, experts are finally letting us in on what radical changes we should expect from the company's latest attempt at creating a game-changing handset. The iPhone 8 ditches the much-loved home button, something we've been accustomed to for 7 generations of iPhone. And, with an all-glass bezel-less design (remember the horrors of smashing your iPhone 4? Yes, that's back), experts are worried Apple may have pushed away its loyal fandom. Mark Gurman, Bloomberg's tech expert explained the highly anticipated changes: "Across the bottom of the screen there's a thin, software bar in lieu of the home button. A user can drag it up to the middle of the screen to open the phone....

Fashion Ad Campaigns Were ‘Markedly’ More Diverse This Year


But there's still plenty of room for improvement.

The Fashion Spot's seasonal rundown of runway diversity in fashion ad campaigns for autumn/winter came with some hopeful news — but also showed us there's still a long way to go before everyone can feel truly represented.
Let's start with the good news. Fall ad campaigns were markedly more diverse than previous seasons and, for the first time ever, the number of nonwhite models cast exceeded 30 percent.

Saint Laurent, Coach 1941, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Gap, Helmut Lang and Nordstrom were among the most racially diverse campaigns.
