Organizers of Milan Fashion Week pushed out Elena Miroglio’s plus-sized show and made her normal-looking models catwalk somewhere else.
For the last five years, Miroglio’s Elena Miro collections have opened the show, but this year she was nixed from the Italian chic event’s official schedule. She staged her show at an independent, unannounced location, as apparently From the Milan Fashion Week organizers: “Some labels just weren't in line with what ready-to-wear week should be. We wanted to champion the values of creativity to reaffirm Milan's role in the world.” So was it Miro’s 1950’s-styled wearable clothes or her gorgeous healthy-looking “plus-sized” models that turned Milan off?
Earlier this week, Katy Perry’s breasts made an appearance—kind of—on beloved children’s favorite Sesame Street, leading to TV execs pulling the spot. Now, Perry and fiancé Russell Brand have responded to the Internet blowup, apparently keeping a good sense of humor about it.
After complaints flew about the low-cut dress Perry wore on the show, Brand tweeted, “@katyperrry today's Sesame Street will NOT be brought to you by the number 34 or the letter D.” also adding, “@katyperry: Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sex-with-me Street?”
In the meantime, Perry has made the banned clip of her song-and-dance with Elmo available on her website, tweeting, “Wow, looks like my play date with Elmo has been cut short! If you still wanna play, see it at www.katyperry.com. Tag you're it, Elmo!” Now, we’re just waiting on the edge of our seats for Elmo’s response.
The winner of the 2009 Nobel Public Health Prize finally has her product on the market, and it’s a sexy, lacy … emergency bra.
The Emergency Bra was designed by Dr. Elena Bodnar, who put it together after researching the effects of the cataclysmic Chernobyl nuclear plant meltdown. The bra is built to break apart upon the onset of crisis, and the cups serve as a facemask—for two. As Bodnar said, the bra “can quickly be converted into a pair of protective face masks, one for the brassiere wearer and one to be given to some needy bystander.”

Over three hundred women have Facebook-pledged to take part in Rachel Rabbit White's “No Makeup Week” and more, most likely, have quietly put away their foundations and mascara for the experiment, giving pores and eyelashes a breath of fresh air for seven days.
The experiment, first introduced on Rabbit’s sex journalism blog, calls on women everywhere to try heading out the door without first catering to their driving need to lay on the makeup. The call was reprinted on Jezebel, some who commented weren’t onboard, saying makeup is a choice that shouldn’t be judged.
Rabbit responded to said critics an interview with the Huffington Post, saying, “I agree makeup is a choice. And while it's probably the most common and most generalized statement about feminism ever made, I agree that feminism is about choice. I'm not telling anyone with No Make-up Week that they should do away with makeup or that makeup is right or wrong. It's just about exploring your relationship to makeup, whether it's through writing or taking a photo or going a day or a week without it.”
