Lorde ditches her typical grunge/goth/intentionally non-glamorous look on Teen Vogue's latest cover, upon which she glows like we're not used to seeing.

The Grammy-Winning singer (real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor), 17, dons traditional makeup and a basic plaid scarf, while letting her locks run loose.

When it comes to her usual appearance - in other words, sans Teen Vogue cover shoot prep - she's the first to admit that her style is on the plainer side.

Although she understands there are "expectations in [the] industry about looking a certain way," Lorde tells the mag she prefers her tomboy look.

"I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”

Although she famously declares "we'll never be royals" in her breakout song, the teen herself is beginning to adjust to her newfound fame and lifestyle.

What do you get when you take Kim Kardashian’s boobs and combine them with Scarlett Johansson’s hair and Megan Fox’s face?

According to men... you get the perfect woman.

According to women, however, you get someone with overly large breasts and a face that doesn't look enough like that of Cara Delevingne.

Indeed, a fascinating new study reveals that the two genders have a very different idea of what is most appealing about them.

As the following illustration depicts, women think men want them to be on the slim side, while a composite of the ideal female form proves that men have no problem with some junk in the trunk - and in other places as well.

The Perfect Woman?

What about when roles are reversed?

Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova has no plans to reproduce, which is probably cause for celebration ... and she doesn't believe in races mixing, either.

Say what now?

In an interview with GQ, the aspiring plastic-human hybrid slash Ukrainian model (or whatever she is) opens up about parenting and why she doesn't want kids.

"The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me," Valeria Lukyanova says. "Most people have children to fulfill their own ambitions, not to give anything."

"They don't think about what they can give this child, what they can teach her."

"They just try to shape her according to some weird script - whatever they couldn't do in life, like becoming a writer or a doctor. I'd rather die from torture.

"The worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle."

Hard to argue her point about having kids for the right reasons, but her comments on the "degeneration" of beauty and the reasons behind it are eye-opening.

Lorde, we are all on your team.

For the second time in a few weeks, this 17-year old has used the power of social media to send an important message to her young followers:

Be proud of who you are... flaws and all.

In February, Lorde posted a picture of herself in bed with acne cream, showing off her warts for millions of followers; and now she's called out a photo agency for trying to pretend as if the singer has a perfect complexion.

On Sunday, the Grammy winner shared two contrasting images of herself from her performance at Lollapalooza in Chile, one of which Photoshopped away her zits and the other of which put them on full display.

See the images in question below:

Think Kim Kardashian is a fashion maven? Think she knows all there is to know about what looks best on other people, considering she has attached her name to countless beauty products?

Think again.

With her family being sued for allegedly stealing the name of their makeup line from businesswoman Lee Tillett, Kim was recently deposed by opposing counsel and forced to admit the following:

“I’m not really good at saying what I think would look good [on other people]."

Dove has received universal acclaim for some recent advertisements.

There was this Real Beauty sketches spot and, of course, this reunion of a military man with his family.

But the company has finally struck out, at least as far as New Jersey residents are concerned.

Following a number of complaints on its Facebook page, Dove has pulled it Armpit of America billboard, which joked about the Garden State's nickname and read:

Armpit of America Ad

"Dear New Jersey, When People call you 'The Armpit of America,' take it as a compliment. Sincerely, Dove."

The cover girl for the 50th annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has been revealed, and it's ... Barbie! Yes, the iconic, all-American doll made by Mattel!

Certainly a different choice than what we were expecting:

Barbie, whose tiny waist, endless legs, voluptuous curves and makeup have all sparked controversy of late, is flaunting her famous figure like never before.

Featured alongside supermodels like Christie Brinkley and Brooklyn Decker, Barbie is the cover girl for a campaign Sports Illustrated is calling "unapologetic."

It appears that the Barbie SI cover is not the actual cover, as it says "pomotional overwrap," but reports say it will thus be wrapped around many copies.

The magazine calls the plastic figure, "The doll that started it all."

Lisa McKnight, Mattel's senior vice president of marketing, adds:

"As a legend herself, and under constant criticism about her body and how she looks, posing ... gives Barbie and her fellow legends an opportunity to own who they are."

Barbie's proportions are so unrealistic that if she were human she would not be able to walk upright.

That information comes from a PSA uploaded to Vimeo by Vianca Lugo that details the impossible body expectations toys are setting. 

The captivating video states, "If Barbie were a real woman, she's have to walk on all fours due to her proportions."

It goes on to say that the world-famous doll would be "7'2 and weight 101 pounds" and that she would die from "malnutrition."

It's no secret that Barbie isn't the best example of an attainable appearance. 

Last year, an artist did a rendering of Barbie with no makeup on, while another created a Barbie with the proportions of an average 19-year-old woman

Vianca Lugo's clip also reveals statistics about teenage steroid usage and diet prevalence. Watch it above and tell us what you think.

Whitney Thore, a blogger and radio producer, is out to prove that you can dance like a pro regardless of your size. It's an issue that's very personal to her.

Thorne was teaching at the Greensboro Dance Theatre by age 16, but quit dancing in college after she experienced inexplicable weight gain.

Unlike Rachel Frederickson, it wasn't just because Whitney let herself go.

"Unable to face my reflection, I failed out of dance class my first semester," Thore told The Huffington Post in an email, going on to explain what happened:

"By the time I had graduated college, been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, moved to Korea, and gained 200 pounds, I was finally able to dance socially."

Still, she "never dreamed I would take a class or perform publicly again."

But when Jared Pike, one of the hosts of the morning radio show Thore produces suggested that she make a "Fat Girl Dancing" video series, she agreed.
