World Humanitarian Day!
News of the Day:
+ At just 14, Kaia Gerber has made waves as one of the biggest up–and–coming models of today. Aside from landing Miu Miu’s eyewear campaign and starring in numerous fashion spreads, she now has her own solo cover. POP magazine put a fresh-faced Gerber on the cover of their 35th issue, shot by Charlotte Wales. Appearing in Chanel and natural makeup, Gerber shows she’s all in as “the most beautiful girl in the world,” and here to stay.
Could you be the most beautiful girl in the world?

+ Ivanka Trump recently bought some earrings from Lady Grey Jewelry, and although the indie jewelry brand appreciated her purchase, they weren’t too thrilled a Trump wanted to sport their pieces. The owners wrote Ivanka a note telling her they put all the proceeds from her purchase toward the Hillary Clinton Campaign, the American Immigration Council, and the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization as a “thanks, but no thanks.” Just a little political pay it forward.

+ U.S. Olympians may be known for their athleticism, but not so much for singing. W magazine gathered gymnast Gabby Douglas, swimmer Elizabeth Beisel, runner Dawn Harper-Nelson, and more from Team USA to sing Queen’s “We Are The Champions.” Although quite off-key, the spirit is there, and that’s all that matters, right?
+ Abigail Breslin shows no mercy toward body-shamers. First, she defended Selena Gomez’s Instagram bikini pics with a Tumblr post, and now she’s after Gold’s Gym Dreamland, based in Cairo, Egypt, for a promotional post telling women that not all body shapes are beautiful and accepted. Gold’s Gym has since apologized via Facebook, but that hasn’t stopped Breslin’s post from causing a huge uproar.
wow honestly disgusted by this @goldsgym you should be ashamed of yourselves. Things like this are the reason 9 year old girls develop eating disorders. Working out should be something you do for yourself, your health and your mind & body, not cuz a corporation declares your body shape isn’t what girls should look like. Also I wonder if it’s cool with Golds Gyms for men to be pear shaped? Interesting they had to single out females. Good job for preying on people’s insecurities and perpetuating body image issues! Good thing I’ve never signed up for your gym, now I certainly never will.
+ San Fransico artists Anton Stuebner and Jordan Reznick captured the beauties of queer, trans, and gender-nonconforming people in their newest exhibit, “Queer Babes,” at the Romer Young Gallery. They wanted to celebrate the members of this community by putting them on display from an imaginative, inspiring, and respected point of view. The exhibit is open in San Francisco until August 27.
