Monica Bellucci is a Bond Girl
At 50, Monica Bellucci is the oldest Bond "Girl." Or, as she'd prefer, "Bond Woman." As Bellucci says, "For the first time in history, James Bond is going to have a story with a mature woman." And we didn't think Bond could get sexier.

Muslim Women Shatter Stereotypes
Say hello to 10 Muslim women. You might think that means stereotypes around oppression, modesty, and identity. But not for these ladies! These bloggers, musicians and tv stars show that beauty has no religion.

The latest in body positivity
Newbie blogger Amber Marie of Fatshion By The Pounds recently did an experiment. She called herself fat in front of a grocery store clerk, a co-worker, her boyfriend, her mom, and her bestie. What happened might surprise you (my favorite was her boyfriend's reaction, may we all have such awesome significant others!). Read it here: I Called Myself Fat To Others, And This Is What Happened.

Nicole Kidman looks gorgeous, Marc Jacobs says so
Nicole Kidman, who just gets more beautiful as she ages, is on the August Vogue cover. She looks stunning... and as usual, there are haters second-guessing why. But the ever-awesome Marc Jacobs silenced them in just a few words on his Instagram, ""All you haters... When were you last given a cover of Vogue? Damn people have a lot of negative energy..!!" Amen Mr. Jacobs!
