The 27 Most Beautifully Diverse Fashion And Beauty Campaigns Of 2016
Huffington Post - 2 months
It’s been a year of peaks and valleys for diversity in fashion (and pretty much everything else, too).  Inclusivity rose at Fashion Week, but an alarming number of magazines failed to use a single model of color on covers the whole year. Ashley Graham starred on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, but some designers flat out refused to send clothing for her groundbreaking cover of British Vogue.  So now more than ever, it feels necessary to take a look back at the beautiful, inspired, forward-thinking campaigns and imagery that did show up in our social media feeds, on YouTube and across the internet this year. See 29 of our favorites below. 1.

On the "A" w/Souleo: Fashion, Art, Greeting Cards And Music Shakeup New York Fashion Week
Huffington Post - 5 months
Photo provided by El Museo del Barrio, Photograph by Sofia Reeser del Rio Not much has changed since 1979. Well, at least not when it comes to the creative and stylish social circles of New York City, according to Paul Caranicas. "I feel like this is the same as that party back then. I don't know how much people have changed since then but they act the same," said Caranicas during the event, Antonio Lopez: A Photo Cocktail Party. "We are in a very free crowd so I think free people are always free and uptight people are always uptight. But I don't hang around them so I don't know." During New York Fashion Week (NYFW), Caranicas, who runs the estate of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez and his creative collaborator Juan Ramos, helped organize the homage to the 1979 party. When it was originally held at NYC's Robert Freidus Gallery the festive celebration included partygoers such as model Pat Cleveland and fashion designer Betsey Johnson posing before a large-format Polaroid came ...

Watch James Corden, Meg Ryan and Adam Scott Turn Beyoncé Lyrics Into a Soap Opera
Yahoo News - 5 months
Monday's Late Late Show brought back the "pop lyrics as soap opera" format and borrowed the Queen's words. James Corden, Meg Ryan and Adam Scott acted out a scene in which Corden catches Ryan cheating on him with Leslie Knope's husband. The plot is moved along through dialogue, like "hold up, they don't love you like I love you," "I don't think you're ready for this jelly," and "uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, no no no." So in this scenario, James Corden is Beyoncé, Meg Ryan is Jay Z and Adam Scott is Rachel Roy. This feels a little bit like Corden gloating about beating Beyoncé at the Creative Arts Emmys ( The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Prime Time Special beat Lemonade for Outstanding Variety Special). Watch out, James! You don't want to invoke the wrath of the Beyhive! (Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by CBS.)

As Rachel Roy Launches A Plus Line, She Thanks Oprah For Her Success
Huffington Post - about 1 year
A quick glance at Rachel Roy's celebrity clientele -- she counts the Kardashians, Tina Fey, and even Michelle Obama as devoted customers -- is enough to prove her staying power in the fashion industry. But its her newest clients that are getting some serious buzz: women over size 12. RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy, a new collection that hits stores and online next week, is the designer's first foray into extended sizing. "If I had it my way, I would have started it long ago," Roy told The Huffington Post. "There has always been a request for it." Well, that request has finally been answered, and it's good. Even the campaign, starring Candice Huffine, reflects Roy's simple desire to make clothing all women want to wear. "My vision for my clothing collection is to dress women so they can go on with their day and life, and it’s a tiny bit more effortless because they have clothes that make them feel smart and sexy. It’s not dependent on whether or not she’s a size two or size 24," ...
