An advert, which was condemned by magazine readers for featuring an 'unhealthily thin' model, has been banned in the UK.

The image, which appeared in Conde Nast Traveller magazine, was subject to criticism after readers deemed the woman's appearance unhealthy – an accusation which the magazine refuted, insisting the model was naturally slim and in proportion.

However, the magazine's sister publication, Glamour, acknowledged the complaints, and the UK's Advertising Standards Authority ruled that the ad would not be permitted to appear again in its current form.

Issuing a statement on the matter, the ASA confirmed: "We acknowledged that the ad was for a travel magazine and that its focus was not supposed to be on the model or her clothes, however, we considered that the model was the focal point of the image."

"Therefore, we concluded that the ad made the model look unhealthily thin and that the ad was irresponsible."

Conde Nast Publications have been advised to ensure that future ads are 'prepared responsibly'.



Renowned photographer, Terry Richardson, has reportedly been dropped by a number of leading fashion magazines amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour on set.

The 52-year-old is known for his sexually explicit imagery and has been accused of sexual harassment in the past – though he has continually denied the these allegations.

A recent article published in The Sunday Times posed the question; “Why is Terry Richardson still feted by fashionistas?,” and argued that the fashion industry should take a stand against the accused, just like women in Hollywood have done against producer, Harvey Weinstein.

And now, according to The Telegraph, executive president and chief operating officer of Conde Nast International, James Woolhouse, has called on the presidents’ of magazines including Vogue, GQ, Glamour and Vanity Fair, to cancel any work they had planned with the photographer.

The email, reportedly sent on Monday morning, read: “I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson.”

“Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately. Thank you for your support in this matter.”

The father-of-three has worked with many high-profile stars including Beyoncé, Rhianna and Lady Gaga, and has directed a number of music videos including Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball.

Terry previously adressed the claims made against him in a 2014 Huffington Post article, saying: “I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases.

“I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do.”

Both Terry and Conde Nast International are yet to issue statements about the reported dismissal.



Glamour's Women of the Year Awards kicked off last night, with celebs taking to the red carpet in their droves.

The night pays homage to women in the various fields of fashion and arts, and the red carpet fashion didn't disappoint:

Lena Dunham isn't shy when it comes to showcasing her body on her hit TV show Girls.

However, getting the fashion industry to accept a regular sized, cellulite speckled physique isn't always the easiest endeavour.

This week Lena is praising Glamour for showing off her gorgeous, un-retouched body on the cover of it's February edition.

The cover sees Lena posing with her Girls co-stars Jemina Kirke, Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet, decked out in Spice Girls-esque platform booties and rainbow hued ensembles from Marc Jacob's new season. 

Most magazines air brush out any signs of imperfection, from cellulite to moles to less than symmetrical features (Lena was previously caught up in a photoshop drama with Vogue), but February's Glamour cover shows Lena just as she is, cellulite and all. 

Taking to Instagram, Lena praised the fashion tome for their inclusivity and penned a heartfelt caption about her experiences with body shaming. 

"Throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was f**king funny looking. Potbelly, rabbit teeth, knock knees — I could never seem to get it right and it haunted my every move," she wrote.

"I posed as the sassy confident one, secretly horrified and hurt by careless comments and hostility. Let's get something straight: I didn't hate what I looked like — I hated the culture that was telling me to hate it."

"When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of 'Isn't she brave? Isn't it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?'"

"Then there were the legions of trolls who made high school teasing look like a damned joke with the violent threats they heaped on, the sickening insults that made me ache for teen girls like me who might be reading my comments."

"Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display," she continued.

"Whether you agree with my politics, like my show or connect to what I do, it doesn't matter — my body isn't fair game. No one's is, no matter their size, colour, gender identity, and there's a place for us all in popular culture to be recognised as beautiful."

Lena's cover is getting lots of positive feedback online, with fans rejoicing over the display of body positivity.

However, like all images featuring women who chose to detach themselves from typical beauty norms, the image is also garnering hate from online trolls. 

"Haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses in 2017 because none of us are going to be scared into muumuus by faceless basement dwellers, or cruel blogs, or even our partners and friends," said the star. Hear hear!



The UN recently appointed their Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls.

And she’s a comic book character.

Albeit a bad-ass, take no sh*t gal with hair so wondrous you want to reach out and touch it, but a fictional character none the less.

With Emma Watson acting as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, Charlize Theron as Messenger of Peace and countless other women fighting for gender equality, the mind boggles as to how the good folk at the UN suddenly came to the conclusion that they’d been barking up the wrong tree all along.

“Ah, Ala Murabit and Charlize Theron are all well and good, but they’re just too damn real. Any objections to Wonder Woman?”

In one fell swoop, the UN suggested that of the millions of women performing admirable, worthwhile tasks on a daily basis, they’ll never quite measure up to a fictional character in hot pants and headband.

And in a maddening kind of way, the idea is so absurd, so toe-curlingly offensive, so close-your-eyes-and-count-to-ten insulting, you almost – almost – have to laugh.

It’s like trying to reason with a drunk person.

“But she’s not an actual woman.”

“What? She is. Woman’s even in her name FFS.”

“She’s not a living, breathing real-life woman, lads.”

“No, but she’s so wondrous she transcends actual real-life women. And isn’t that something all you ladies should aspire to?”

In that case, how long before we kick Ban Ki-moon out of the UN Secretary-General position and replace him with He-Man?

And if the idea that the United Nations didn’t think they could find ONE worthy ambassador among millions of real-life women isn’t crushing enough, a magazine aimed at the female population has this week nominated a man for its Women of the Year award.

That’s right, ladies. As well as being a multi-millionaire with a back catalogue of number ones, Bono also has this whole 'being a woman' thing nailed down too.

Well, according to Glamour magazine's annual awards, that is.

As news broke of Bono’s nomination, many assumed it was a publicity stunt to draw attention to the other more worthy nominees who include Olympic medallist, Simone Bails, and Nobel peace prize winner Nadia Murad.

And how dispiriting, how overwhelmingly disheartening if that is, indeed, the case?

Despite there being a Nobel Prize winner and Olympic medallist to herald,  there is a suggestion that the public need a man’s name in the headline if they’re going to pay a blind bit of attention to a ceremony that honours women.

Well sure look, if the ageing male rocker doesn’t pull in enough publicity this time around, we can always give Wonder Woman the nod next year.

Or, you know, the pink Power Ranger…




Bono has been named the first Glamour Man of the Year.

The Irish musician will be awarded for his work on the rights and needs of women who are living in poverty around the world. The 56-year-old launched his Poverty is Sexist movement through his One Campaign.

Glamour's editor, Cindi Leive told Press Association: "We've talked for years about whether to honour a man at the Women of the Year and we've always kind of put the kabash on it.

“You know, men get a lot of awards and aren’t exactly hurting in the celebration and honours department.”

“But it started to seem that that might be an outdated way of looking at things, and there are so many men who really are doing wonderful things for women these days. Some men get it and Bono is one of those guys.”

Bono will be presented his award as the first Man of the Year in LA on November 14.



It seems like Kourtney Kardashian had a little too much fun at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards last night.

The reality star was all glitz while attending the fancy event – yet, the after-party saw her stripping down to nothing, and posing for a picture with only a fur blanket thrown over her.

The reality star took to Snapchat to share the image with her fans. She simply captioned the pic: "After party."

But, it's no wonder that the 37-year-old let her hair down as she was flying solo on this trip to London.

She went without any of her children or her sisters, so we're sure the night was pretty much drama-free.


We all know famous people are asked a million and one annoying questions everyday. It's all part of the job.

Well, Nick Jonas and Emily Ratajkowski get asked a LOT of awful questions on social media, like, "can women really have it all?" and "boxers or briefs?"

How much do people need to know about?!

In a behind-the-scenes video from their latest Glamour photoshoot, Nick and Emily decide to ask each other their questions and it gets very, erm… interesting.

Have a look as they answer everything:



Even though Anne Hathaway is one of Hollywood's leading ladies AND has a Best Supporting Actress Oscar under her belt, she is still facing a lot of pressure to find work in recent years. 

Anne, 32, spoke to Glamour magazine and admitted that she struggles to get parts because the best roles are going to the next generation of talented, younger actresses. 

The brunette beauty discussed what it's like being a woman in the film industry as she posed in a dreamy photoshoot for Glamour.

The photoshoot captures Anne posing topless underneath a series of stylish, oversized coats.

Anne told the magazine: "I hate to admit it, but it’s true – there are fewer roles and the competition is just as fierce as ever."

"I look around at my peers and I’m so blown away by their talent and their beauty and their cool style, as well as their ability to be an actress and be a movie star and be good at it."

"I mean, they’re so good and we’re all trying to get the same parts."

The Devil Wears Prada star said that Hollywood's obsession with youth and beauty has helped her along in her career so far, however. 

She revealed that in the past, she was the young actress landing the major roles, so now it's her turn to watch it happen. 

"I can’t complain about it because I benefited from it", Anne explained.

"When I was in my early 20s, parts would be written for women in their 50s and I would get them."

"And now I’m in my early 30s and I’m like, 'Why did that 24 year old get that part?'"




Kim Kardashian might be pretty happy with her life as it stands right now, given that she is expecting her long-awaited second child, but that doesn't mean she's not keen to know what lies ahead in her future.

The reality star penned a letter to her future self for Glamour US, of which she is the July cover star, and her questions are pretty much exactly what you would expect from Ms. Kardashian herself.

Contouring, tanning, and the art of being "on fleek", it's all there and it's all very Kim K indeed.

"I trust that you will still be the queen of contouring," she writes, adding, "May science invent a mysterious and delicious green juice to keep you tan forever."

As for life's big questions, the reality star wonders, "Are you still filming 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians?… Are selfies still a thing? Are the terms 'bae' and 'on fleek' so 2015? If not, am I still 'on fleek?'"

And as a word of warning to her future self, the social media maven adds, "If you haven't broken the 100 billion mark on Instagram followers, I'll be very disappointed in you. Bible."

It's not all about herself though, as Kim also has high hopes for her sisters. She prays that Khloé "finds her happily ever after and falls madly in love, because she really deserves it" while she thinks Kourtney should maybe be "done with having babies."

Wonder what the girls think of that…


Did you know that it was Mr. Max Factor that was responsible for transforming Marilyn Monroe into the woman she is revered as to this day. So how did he transform her from an ordinary girl into a glamour puss? Niamh Geaney went along to meet Max Factor's uber-talented Make-up Artist Lyndsey Cavanagh to find out what products we can use to achieve this Hollywood starlet look.



We love Anna Kendrick‘s  honesty on many things, but we still find it hard to believe that the Pitch Perfect star still doesn’t see herself as attractive.

The actress was commenting about her appearance in a recent interview for Glamour magazine where she said her appearance has never been a “moneymaker”.

What? But the 28-year-old backed up her argument with her refreshing attitude when it comes to her appearance.

“I’m fine being small. I’m fine being all the things I am. And I’m happy I’m not supposed to be on the 50 Most Beautiful list all the time, because that would be super f–king stressful.”

Anna went on to add that it was difficult being in the public eye all the time.

“Sometimes I just want to wear the same outfit for three days in a row,” she says. “And I kind of can’t.”

But Kendrick admits she’s lucky in the grand scheme of things.

We love Anna but when it comes to her opinion on her looks, we can’t agree with you there Anna.
