Melissa McCarthy Snubbed by Designers for Oscars

Melissa McCarthy at 2012's OscarsMelissa McCarthy has revealed designers refused to make a dress in her size for the Oscar awards in 2012.

The Bridesmaids star, who has just created a line of plus-size clothing for women, admits a number of high-profile designers snubbed her request for the glamorous event.

"Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers - very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people - and they all said no," the star said in the July issue of Redbook.

Despite being busy with her new fashion venture, the 43-year-old actress has also been juggling her family life, and admits her marriage with Ben Falcone couldn't be better: "We have a great marriage." The couple, who tied the knot in 2005, haven't let their high level of fame change their relationship because the most important thing to them is their two daughters Vivian, seven, and Georgette, four.

Joan Rivers and Lena Dunham

Joan Rivers has blasted Lena Dunham for embracing her curves.

The Fashion Police host accused the Girls creator and star of "sending a message out to people that it's OK to stay fat and get diabetes" by refusing to conform to Hollywood's super skinny stereotype. Speaking to Howard Stern on his Sirius FM radio show, the 80-year-old comedienne advised the 27-year-old Golden Globe-winning star, "Don't let them laugh at you physically. I'm saying if you look the way you look Lena, that's fine and you're funny, but don't say it's OK that other girls look like this, tell them to try and look better."

AerieSomewhat following in the steps of UK retailer Debenhams, American Eagle has launched a campaign for their Aerie brand which sees models in all their non-Photoshopped beauty.

Adding the tagline, "The girl in this photo has not been retouched. The real you is sexy. #aeriereal," to each of the images, the folks behind the Aerie Real lingerie collection are making their mark in the fight for body positivity. Fashion editor and style expert Jenny Altman joined the company "for an incredible campaign that celebrates the power and beauty of real women," explaining that "[Aerie] left everything. We left beauty marks, we left tattoos, what you see is really what you get with our campaign... They are still models, they're still gorgeous, they just look a little more like the rest of us... We're hoping to break the mold... we hope by embracing this that real girls everywhere will start to embrace their own beauty."

Cameron Diaz Promotes Health, Body Diversity in New Book

Cameron Diaz with 'The Body Book'In a sea of advertisements where underage models are constantly used and already-thin celebrities are edited until their unrecognizeable, model-turned-actress Cameron Diaz has come to change things with her new book, The Body Book.

A short behind-the-scenes video of Diaz photographing women (of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities!) for her book has been released (seen after the jump) in which the Counselor star promotes overall health and loving one's body instead of weight loss.

The 41-year-old has also been promoting going makeup free, as she even appeared in a photo holding a copy of The Body Book with what seems to be a completely fresh face!

Hopefully more celebrities take notice and jump onto Diaz's body-positive bandwagon.

Quote of the Day: Jennifer Lawrence on ‘The Fashion Police’

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News

Jennifer Lawrence

"There are shows like The Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat. 'They call it 'fun' and they say 'welcome to the real world' - and that shouldn't be the real world, it's going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat."

- Jennifer Lawrence takes a stand against body shaming in the media. Don't you just love every word that comes out of this woman's mouth?
