16 Celebrities Who Support Emma Watson And The UN's #HeForShe Campaign. Following Emma Watson's nerve-tingling speech at the UN earlier this week, where she called on men and boys to support gender equality as part of the #HeForShe campaign, many celebrities have come out in force to support her and out themselves as feminists.
From Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Douglas Booth to Forrest Whittaker and Simon Pegg, many of these supporters are male - refreshing given that feminism is often, as Emma points out, associated with 'man-hating'. “I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me,” she said. “But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. “Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive. Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

Most prominently coming out of America’s coastal cities of New York and LA, a new wave of young designers are making your typical gender-targeted men’s and women’s collections feel well and truly behind the curve. Employing models of all genders, ages, shapes and sizes in their shows and campaigns, these six independent brands are currently redefining the American fashion industry’s straightforward standards. Self-proclaimed “non-demographic” label 69 doesn't let any human variables constrain its designs. The LA-based brand’s cartoonishly oversized silhouettes imply that its clothing is not tailored to any age or gender, and this ambiguity makes its garments somewhat universal.
New York label Gypsy Sport has always been about celebrating the misfits. Acceptance Revolution: Fashion’s New Body. Ashley Graham, 27, was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and discovered in a mall at the age of 12.

Increasingly, Instagram is proving itself a hotbed for feminist dialogue.
Case in point: 17-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter’s eloquent shutdown of Instagram users who implied she was “asking for it” after she posted a picture of herself in a bikini with her nieces. The young actress posted said picture on Saturday and subsequently received a barrage of misogynistic comments. However, Winter didn’t take this lying down. Addressing one anonymous user directly, she wrote, “Hey @iambackvato there is no need for this kind of energy on my Instagram. This is a photo of me and my nieces – there is no need to turn it into anything else. Alongside these comments were some from (generally much-older) men remarking on the sexual attractiveness of Winter’s body – despite her age. “Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this?” Tattoo Artist Bang Bang Spills Secrets About Inking the Fashion Set in His New Book. As with fitness instructors, hair colorists and astrologers, fashion people tend to be a bit cultish about their favorite tattoo artists.
You've likely heard of Scott Campbell — known for inking the likes of Marc Jacobs, Kanye West and Olivier Zahm — who's moved his primary focus to fine art in recent years, and Dr. Woo, the unofficial go-to guy for the international blogger set, with Chiara Ferragni and Emily Weiss among his clientele. But perhaps the most buzzy name on the ever-popular body art scene is Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy, the New York-based artist who counts Cara Delevingne, Jordan Dunn, Kylie Jenner and Katy Perry among his loyal clients — and has an Instagram following that's surpassed 1 million. "There's so many extreme lengths I'll go to [in order to tattoo someone]," McCurdy told me at his book launch. "If they ask, I'll do it.

Performing alongside The Flaming Lips, who collaborated with her on the album, Cyrus sported outfits including one with a dildo attached. She also wore a giant nappy, which she later removed onstage. At one point Cyrus mimed suckling on her 6'7" dancer's breasts, which were covered up with glittery bags of money. At another she came to the front of the stage where fans stuffed dollar bills in her mouth. Cyrus also took to the piano to sing about her dead fish, ripping out her fake dreadlocks. The singer has seven more dates on the North America tour, including one tonight (November 21) in Detroit. Getty.
