In February, CoverGirl introduced an awesome campaign that we had to share on the Facebook walls of pretty much every woman we knew. The #GirlsCan program is adding a much-needed dose of female empowerment to the world, encouraging women to “overcome barriers to break boundaries,” and “be the next generation to rock the world."  We spoke to Esi Eggleston Bracey, vice president of Global Cosmetics at Procter & Gamble, to learn more about the campaign and how it got started! “For a long time here at CoverGirl, we’ve been on a mission to show women what’s possible in terms of achievement...
Collegiettes, our dreams have come true--*NSYNC has released a new album (Cue inner third-grade fan-girl screaming with excitement)! To be exact, though, Sony released a new album full of *NSYNC songs on Tuesday. In a strange turn of events, however, the band revealed that they were totally clueless that the album was being released at all.  The album, titled The Essential *NSYNC, features old hits, such as "Tearin' Up My Heart," as well as lesser-known songs that have never made it onto a record (until now!), like "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and "Trashin' the Camp (with Phil Collins)."...
Just weeks after Facebook came under fire for its emotion-manipulation study, the popular dating site, OkCupid, defended the experiment saying, "That's how websites work." Plus, it revealed that OkCupid, too, has dabbled in user manipulation for the sake of research. Last month, an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences revealed that Facebook manipulated the timelines of about 700,000 users in an attempt to study "emotional contagion through social networks." The study, which was conducted by Facebook, Cornell and the University of California-San Francisco, tested...
Get On Up, which stars Chadwick Boseman as Godfather of Soul James Brown, is the perfect example of art imitating life. The film spans not just one or two but six historical decades, meaning the sartorial eye candy is extreme. We’re talking 60 different costumes — for the character of Brown alone.   We talked to Sharen Davis, the costume designer for Get On Up whose credits include Dreamgirls, The Help and Ray, to learn more about the film’s incredible clothes. “To tell you the truth, at the beginning I wasn’t too sure I wanted to do it,” Davis says. “Since I’ve done [movies about African-...
Ever heard of Amelia Earhart? Of course you have. Let's try again: Have you ever heard of Amelia Rose Earhart? If you still have visions of airplanes and global voyages circling in your head, you're not far off; Amelia Rose Earhart, named for the famous aviator herself, has just completed her own flight around the world. In an effort to recreate and symbolically complete Amelia Mary Earhart's fateful 1937 flight, modern-day Amelia took off from Oakland, C.A. on Thursday, June 26th and landed on Friday, July 11th after spanning the globe. Since we're all about girl power ourselves (and this...
