Rihanna's at it again, bringing her perfection into our undeserving worlds. We can't cope with her, honestly.

This time, she's only gone and produced realistic mannequins for her first Fenty collection, with actual, real-life CURVES. *Wipes away tear* We adore representation.

Bad Gal RiRi debuted her first collection at a New York City pop-up store, and while the clothes themselves were gorgeous, fans noticed the mannequins immediately for their authenticity.

While in-store mannequins in regular retail shops normally feature a 24-inch waist, Rihanna decided to do things her way, adding hips, fuller breasts and even…a BELLY. *Faints*

People were here for the representation, with one user tweeting; "Here for the mannequin having hip dips and a little pooch." Another responded; "Wow, this mannequin is shaped like me".

The joy was palpable from fans all over the world, adoring Rihanna's vision. We all most likely remember her iconic Savage x Fenty catwalk show, featuring models of every colour, size and ability as well as a pregnant model.

"Rihanna’s vision for Fenty is to celebrate femininity in all its form," the brand told BAZAAR.com in a statement.

"This Release 6-19 explores another facet of a woman’s wardrobe, one that honours all colours, shapes, curves and styles. We wanted to illustrate the Maison’s inclusive side by showing a size-range of mannequins which represent this reality."

Nike recently debuted plus-size mannequins in the women's section of their Oxford Street store, grabbing attention for the ground-breaking move.

Located at The Webster until June 30, Fenty's new pop-up showcases the 31-year-old singer's stunning dresses and form-fitting knit outfits on mannequins of all different shapes and sizes.

The move is rarely witnessed in the body-shaming world of high fashion, but everyone knows you can't tell RiRi what to do.

Hopefully other brands take note, and decide to show genuine women in their ad campaigns, runway shows and mannequin sizing.

She's a definite style goddess, and this is a sequel that's not to be missed. The second collection has some seriously sizzlin' pieces that we need in our wardrobes A-to-the-SAP.

Maya Jama worked alongside the brand's in-house team to design another sure-fire sell out collection, with a whopping 82 pieces available in sizes four up to 24.

Maya's personal style is immediately recognised, and the perfect lewks are combined with on-trend transitional pieces that merge streetwear with night attire. Think comfy but sexy:

We are DROOLING over the PVC pieces, as well as those gorgeous accessories to match, like berets and faux fur handbags.

Speaking on the PLT x Maya Jama second collaboration, the radio DJ said;

“I was so overwhelmed at the response and support for my first collection with PLT. It did so well that I couldn’t be more excited to unveil my second. Once again, it’s a total reflection of my character and personal style."

"I’m always on the move and so I’ve designed this collection for every girl, from size 4-24, so they’ve got the perfect look from day to night.”

The 25-year-old is currently dating UK grime artist Stormzy, and features on the brand's new podcast, PLT: Behind Closed Doors.

The collection includes athleisure feels, sporty separates and oversized sweater dresses, paired with chunky trainers by day and over the knee boots by night. Nail those cool but comfortable looks with Maya Jama's range.

They've also got teddy bear tracksuits for the ultimate snug feel, but we are DYING to get these three pieces especially:

A pink suede jumpsuit, Aaliyah-style 90s denim wide-leg trousers and matching zip-up crop top, and a VINYL trenchcoat. These will grab attention for all the right reasons, trust us.

In conclusion:

Look= Served.

Wig= Snatched.

These clothes will hug you in all the right places, we've already added all 82 pieces to our carts. (Zero self-control)


What should have been an amazing 21st birthday celebration for Modern Family actress turned sour, when body-shaming trolls attacked her weight-loss.

The gorgeous actress posted a number of photos from her birthday bash, alongside her beloved boyfriend Levi Meaden, and the comments quickly became focused on her physique.

The images show Winter wearing a plaid jumpsuit, showing off her beautiful body, but trolls claimed her slimmer figure was because of plastic surgery.


A post shared by (@arielwinter) on

She captioned the post: "When you see the zankou chicken on the left turn right, and then you’ll be in Marina Del RAH. Happy 21st. Love you always, I couldn’t ask for a better day."

Comments have since been disabled on the series of snaps, after horrible social media users targeted her with hate. One said; "You’re losing your thick", referencing her famously curvy body.

"Healthier? She got work done to her face. She looked 'healthier' before,” one person wrote.

“Nothing wrong with being honest and telling her we liked her better before 'the change' she was so beautiful before she started chopping up her body and if me saying so helps one girl out there to feel beautiful who's thinking of surgery then its worth it,” another person added.

The judgemental, harsh words prompted a response from Ariel herself.

“I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting me down,” she wrote. 

“I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not being supportive of women if you’re just assuming something about the way they look," she added. She's had to fight back the haters multiple times before:

She tweeted a few months ago: "My friend sent me the funniest article that's apparently in OK Magazine about my 'super strict diet' and how I only go out to eat if it's healthy food and I don't allow sugar in the house…I eat every carbohydrate possible…"

"I make chocolate chip cookies every week," she added. YES GURL.

Winter has long been the subject of criticism online, especially since her breast reduction surgery at the age of 17 and her choice of fashion.


A post shared by ARIEL WINTER (@arielwinter) on

Earlier in January, somebody even suggested that she binges on drugs to lose weight; "Not half as bad as all the coke.meth she uses. She literally dropped 30 ponds." After correcting her spelling of pounds (thank God), Winter fired back.

“Yup… I dropped 30 bodies of water so fast…” she said. ”And yes!! My psychiatrist switched me from my previous antidepressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight, to coke/meth!! 

Her body shouldn't be attacked by random online users hiding behind a keyboard. Keep doing what you're doing Ariel, you're slaying the game and snatching wigs left, right and centre.


It's a pretty grim day, in an age when we are supposed to embrace our bodies and empower each other, people are STILL fat shaming. 

Love Island's Megan Barton has a body of a goddess, but it doesn't stop the body shamers coming after her.

The 24-year-old stunned in a white dress that hugged her curves in all the right places.


A post shared by Kendall Rae Knight (@kendallraeknight) on

However, in her Instagram stories, Megan posted a screenshot of a message from an Insta user.

The message showed a picture which had been on Megan's story, along with three words: "So fat now."

Megan slammed the body shamer and said people like that are the reason why a lot of young girls have issues with their bodies. 

The Love Island babe wrote: "Mate, it's people like this tool that are making young girls pick fault with themselves."

"How's she calling me fat at a size 10?! Girls embrace your curves," she added – you tell them, gal!

It's hard enough to accept our bodies, so if you've got nothing nice to say about someone else's bod – do everyone a favour and just don't comment.


Husband of the Year award, we have found you a major contender. 

Robbie Tripp is an activist and author, and happens to be married to sensational lifestyle blogger Sarah Tripp, better known by her Instagram moniker Sassy Red Lipstick. 

Taking to Instagram, he shared a completely touching open letter about his love of his wife's curves. 


A post shared by ROBBIE TRIPP™ (@tripp) on

'I love this woman and her curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as "chubby" or even "fat,"' he began the post.

'Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalises women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realised how many men have bought into that lie.'

'For me, there is nothing sexier than this woman right here: thick thighs, big booty, cute little side roll, etc.'

'Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room.'

'Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character.'

Tugging at the heartstrings of a nation even further, Robbie goes on to remind women that they absolutely do not need to conform to stringent societal beauty ideals in order to find the love of their lives.

'She's real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty. Girls, don't ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated.'

'There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah.'

No we're not crying, you are. 

Robbie posted another snap to his Instagram, gushing about the positive attention his post has received. 

'It's been incredible to see the reaction from my simple post celebrating my wife and her body. So much positivity and love have come from it,' he said. 

As well as being partner goals, Robbie has seriously reminded us that beauty standards are purely dictatorial, and that real beauty is subjective.


The celebration of the 'curve' has saturated popular culture in recent years, with the likes of the Kardashian sisters, Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose, Beyoncé and Blac Chyna supposedly flying the flag for curvacious women everywhere.

And while rocking a pear-shaped figure might place you in A-list company, it also reportedly does wonders for your physical health.


Happy Birthday @steph_shep I love this pic of us!

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

According to recent research, women who carry fat in their hips, thighs and bum are at a lower risk of developing a number of different diseases, including heart attacks, strokes and diabetes.

For years, we've known that carrying weight around your middle can contribute to ill health as it impacts the internal organs, but research has now confirmed that storing weight in your lower half helps to draw fat away from those organs.

So, what's the difference between fat around the midriff and fat around the hips and thighs?

Well, the former is known as visceral fat and releases harmful chemicals which, as already stated, can effect the main organs of the body, while the latter is known as subcutaneous fat which doesn't have the same effect and actually indirectly protects the heart.

The findings, which were conducted by researchers at the University of Tubingen, has been published in the journal of Cell Metabolism.


Whether you lover her or hate her, you can't deny that Kim Kardashian has killer curves. And little did we know what one pop star thanks Kimmy for her confidence.

Demi Lovato appeared on the Ellen show today, and admitted that Kim had a really important influence on her growing up. 

Ms Lovato has never shied away from talking about her eating disorder, but says when they Kardashians started to become popular, it created a new image for her to look up to. 

"When I was growing up, at the kind of age where your body starts changing and you want to be cool, it was in that era of when very, very, very thin people were the popular people in Hollywood, so that’s what I had to look up to," she said.


She's never really been too shy about flaunting her gorgeous figure. Yup, 18-year-old superstar Kylie Jenner is loud and proud on her various social media platforms – and today has certainly been no different.

Donning a teeny, tiny, low-cut white vest teamed with black Moschino knickers, the reality TV star posted a snap to her Instagram page that showed off PLENTY of cleavage. 

Although, Ms Jenner herself was more concerned with the broken talon on her middle finger (no one's looking at your fingers, Kylie!): following a strawberry emojii, she used the caption "broken nail" along with a sad face. 

Understandably, the image has now notched up more than a million likes from her fans. 

In September, Kylie addressed the ongoing speculation that she had gone under the knife in order to achieve a fuller figure. 

Under a website post entitled Kylie Comes Clean: They're Real, she shared a video which showed her demonstrating the before and after effects of good underwear.

"I don’t share this with a lot of people, but everyone thinks I’ve gotten breast augmentation recently, but I haven’t," she explained to the camera.

"I just use the Bombshell by Victoria’s Secret. It’s life-changing. I’ve gotten all my sisters on it and all my friends."

She added: "This is all padding. I think it makes your breasts look great and girlie. This is it. No breast implants. No surgery. Nothing. It’s amazing."


She was at the receiving end of cruel internet taunts earlier this year when images of her in a bikini in Mexico surfaced.

Still, Selena Gomez is rightly proud of her figure – and has always steadfastly refused to let petty criticisms relating to her appearance get her down.

Indeed, one Instagram snap that Ms Gomez posted around that time of her Mexican jaunt included the defiant caption: "I love being happy with me yall #theresmoretolove".

The snap later garnered some 1.5million likes from her fans.

And this week, when asked to rate her hotness on a scale of one to ten, the singer remained refreshingly confident.

“I would say on a premiere day, I would be a good nine," Ms Gomez, who also celebrated her 23rd birthday on Wednesday, mused on Boston 103.3’s TJ Show.

Although she went on to admit that, much like the rest of us, she has her off days too.

"And then on my every day I feel like a six,” she explained, before quickly adding: “Gosh that sounds so bad. I feel like a six or a seven.”

In the end, Selena and the hosts settled that she was a spectacular 9.75.

We couldn’t agree more.



Lady Gaga really doesn’t mind sharing it all on her Instagram page, and her latest snap is no exception.

The singer posted a picture of herself with the caption; “Curvy and proud.”

Go Gaga! This isn’t the first time the singer proudly spoke about her curves, as she revealed in an earlier interview with Harper’s Bazaar that she had previously struggled with her body image.

"I am better with food. I don't have an eating disorder anymore."



Sophia Bush is perfectly happy with her “curvy” figure – and she wants us to know!

The actress appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show when she spoke about her curves: “I’m a woman and it’s a struggle for all of us …  And I’m curvy. I’m not some rail-thin, 6 foot-tall runway model who was just born that way. I was born like this. And that’s A-OK.”

Sophia continued to say that it took her some time to reach a point where she was happy with her body: “It took me until this point in my life at 31 to say, ‘Hey, yeah, I’m going to embrace my body and own it for me, not anyone else.”

What an empowering message to give women who struggle with self-esteem and body issues – we like your style Sophia!
