Yesterday, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto decided to address the criticism lobbed at Kelly Clarkson and Adele after their respective performances during Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. “Criticism? What critcism?” you might be wondering. Oh, just that they’re “fatter than normal”, in Cavuto’s words, no less.
Whether its her scrunchies, her glasses, her makeup (or lack thereof), or her pantsuits, no aspect of Hillary Clinton‘s appearance seems safe from scrutiny. Not that she cares, of course, but the fact remains. On “Fox & Friends” today, host Steve Doocy aimed the spotlight at the question of whether or not Clinton, who stepped down from her post as Secretary of State last week, has had work done recently.
Looks like someone missed the memo that, despite the endless political brouhaha, Anna Wintour‘s ambassadorship is most likely dead in the water. Donald Trump called in to Fox & Friends to voice his support for President Obama’s alleged vision of the Vogue editor as ambassador to the United Kingdom.
We’re still having nightmares thinking back on the “human body stiletto,” (warning: freaky!) a Photoshopped imagining of an extreme (and, we hope, never to be realized) body modification procedure in which a heel is surgically inserted into a woman’s foot. Luckily, the real set of procedures that Fox News is christening “stiletto surgery” isn’t quite as grotesque, especially when you consider the alternative. That’s not to say some of you won’t wince at the thought of it though.
Last Friday, Fox & Friends‘ Brian Kilmeade made a sexist joke that the network’s female anchors are picked from a Victoria’s Secret catalog. Of course, we never take anything that comes out of that network seriously, but it turns out that one of Fox’s anchors is actually a former Victoria’s Secret model. Well, color us surprised.
The strange things that happen on Fox News don’t really faze us anymore, but somehow, anchors and show hosts still manage to do things that raise our eyebrows. On Friday’s radio show Fox & Friends with Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson, a nice listener called in to compliment Alisyn Camerota, a Fox anchor who was filling in for Carlson. What happened next is nothing short of sexist.
Is Ann Romney learning the hard way not to mess with Anna Wintour?
Also: models are “hungry” and the whole industry is idle, ignorant, and vain. Happy Tuesday!
Even if you aren’t a regular viewer of Fox News, you probably have a pretty firm image ingrained your mind of what the network’s female anchors tend to look like: thin, blonde, coiffed, and outfitted in a brightly-colored, decidedly “feminine” ensemble. A quick Google search alone turns up reams of “Hottest Anchor” roundups and more than one video montage dedicated to footage of their toned gams. But it’s not merely that Fox skews towards younger, prettier hires — the makeup looks they’re sporting are generally of the sort you see painted on Miss America.
After quite the uproar over the revelation that Ralph Lauren is manufacturing the 2012 U.S. Olympic team’s uniforms in China, the brand has released a double whammy statement not only announcing that it is the “Official Outfitter” of the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic teams, but also promising that the uniforms will be 100% manufactured in the good ole’ U.S. of A.
Yesterday, we told you why we’re not surprised that the Ralph Lauren-designed U.S. Olympic team uniforms were made in China. But it seems that lawmakers don’t feel the same, and neither does Fox News‘ Bob Beckel.
Who thought putting a 19-year-old buxom blonde on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue would be so controversial?
Ever since she returned from maternity leave in August with a choppy, textured bob, Megyn Kelly has had our favorite hair on the airwaves. But today the Fox News anchor gave her short ‘do a new look by straightening it and sweeping her bangs off her face.
While there’s no shortage of advice out there telling women what to wear for New Year’s Eve, the menfolk are a little less covered. Which is why we thought we’d check in with one guy who does New Year’s for a living: Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. We chatted with the anchor about his hosting prep, whether it takes him or Megyn Kelly longer to get ready, and why Australian-made rubber soles are so very important.
Great fashion moments aren’t just relegated to great fashion people. 2011 was the year newscasters provided us with some of our favorite fashion moments — from excellent style choices to fun interviews to downright hysterical coverage.
Remember when Fox News accused J.Crew‘s Jenna Lyons of encouraging America’s young to disassociate themselves from their gender roles because she painted her son’s toenails pink? Well now the news organization is trying to use the news of her rumored lady lover Courtney Crangi as proof that she has “discomfort with masculinity.” I would like to tell you why that’s bullshit.
The people at Fox News are seriously upset over a J.Crew feature that popped up on the brand’s site this weekend. In it, J.Crew’s creative director Jenna Lyons is pictured painting her son Beckett‘s toenails pink. The image is accompanied by the text, “Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.” When we saw the ad, we thought it was adorable. That pink is really close to Styleite pink, after all. But a number of media commenters and Fox writers fear the ad might encourage children to become transgendered.
At the opening of her Los Angeles boutique last week, Vivienne Westwood spoke to Fox News’ entertainment reporters (also known as “Pop Tarts”) about her concerns regarding climate change. True to form, her statements were a bit over the top — but Fox News took them so seriously as to ask actual climate change experts to weigh in on the veracity of Westwood’s opinion.
The last thing you want to capture in a Kodak moment is a pesky photobomber. When fashion personalities are trying to flash their pearly whites for the camera, having an ecstatic party girl flashing her armpits in the background is as unsavory as a hanging booger. But while it may be mortifying for both the bomber and the main subject, we can’t help but laugh our asses off.
