It's been a big week for Jennifer Lawrence.

1. Numero magazine has bronzed up a pale caucasian model for an African-inspired photo shoot.

Because why hire a black model, when you can paint a white one instead?

Sometimes, you have to wonder what goes on inside the heads of fashion magazine editors (you can get an idea by reading our post on former Vogue editor Kirstie Clements here).

As well as being completely tasteless, this image reflects the ignorance of real cultural diversity by many in the fashion industry. Gah.

2. And over at iVillage.com.au, we’re wading through the gossip so you don’t have to…

3. It’s been a big week for Jennifer Lawrence.

After her Oscars win, her dramatic trip up the stairs to claim it and (gasp!) a change of hair colour, it’s no wonder the 22-year-old Silver Linings Playbook star needed a bit of chill time.

J-Law (as she is now being dubbed) kicked back in Hawaii with a friend, a bottle of wine… and a thick rolled cigarette that looks a little like a marijuana joint.


3. Kristen Bell has flashed her bump while shopping in Los Angeles and it’s AMAZING. Check it out by clicking here.

4. Have you seen the “We Saw Your Junk” spoof of Seth Macfarlane’s infamous Oscars song “We Saw Your Boobs”? The man responsible says: “I figured if we’re going to objectify women, we sure as heck better objectify men too!” Take a look and tell us what you think.

5. Take a look at some of Myer’s Autumn/Winter Spring runway styles.

Myer launched its new-season styles in Melbourne last night.

The show was opened by Alexandra Agoston, a former model for Myer’s rival store, David Jones.


6. If you’ve ever felt domestically inadequate after seeing the perfectly folded sheets and towels in homewares stores, this image will make your day.

Popular retail chain Bed Bath and Beyond has been, well, lying about their extraterrestrial folding abilities. For years.

All those piles of flawlessly folded towels? LIES. And the proof is in this here photo. As you can see, their displays are actually assembled with the help of these blocks of shaped foam.

Forget Watergate – this is the biggest betrayal we’ve seen in years. We’re calling it now: This is towel-gate.

7. Guess which celeb has announced she will be eating her placenta after she gives birth? Plus, another star mum reveals she’s already swallowed hers. Click here to read more.

8. Women being spanked for buying the wrong coffee? These 1950s ads will make you cringe! See the gallery here.

9. Goat videos are taking over Facebook feeds worldwide. Are you confused? We’ve got your back.

For the uninitiated, these videos feature popular songs that have been mashed with audio from… goats. Clearly some people have a lot of time on their hands.

And for your viewing pleasure, here is a goat edition of Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’.  The goat makes an entrance around the one minute mark. Happy Friday.
