If there was any justice in the pop culture world, Nina Dobrev would hear her name mentioned alongside Claire Danes, Julianne Margulies and the rest of The Emmy nominees for Best Actress in a Drama because her work throughout the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries is more than worthy of acting’s biggest honor.
Not only did Dobrev continue to breathe life into two distinctly different characters, but because Elena Gilbert spent season four in so many different mental states, it’s more like she created two dozen distinctly different characters! Although the one constant in each of these incarnations was her ability to ground heightened drama in a powerfully emotional place.
Many of you have probably heard of the CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch’s controversial and flat out rude comments that the company doesn’t sell XL or XXL sizes for women because they want “cool” people to wear their clothes. Well, this blogger wrote an open letter to Jeffries and included these photos of herself and what is considered a “typical” male model body type.
Some quotes from her letter:
“The only thing you’ve done through your comments (about thin being beautiful and only offering XL and XXL in your stores for men) is reinforce the unoriginal concept that fat women are social failures, valueless, and undesirable.”
“This is largely attributed to companies like yours that perpetuate the thought that fat women are not beautiful. This is inaccurate, but if someone were to look through your infamous catalog, they wouldn’t believe me.”
“P.P.S. You should know your Large t-shirt comfortably fits a size 22. You might want to work on that.”
This has to do with fashion, though perhaps not in the way this blog has so far posted. But this sort of confidence is the sort of thing that we want our choices in clothes to reflect. You should be able to wear whatever you want and feel confident - no matter what other people may say or think.
everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22
