Daily Fail: Calling Out Anjelica Huston’s ‘Pillow Face’ Isn’t OK (Even If She’s Admitted To Plastic Surgery

Daily Fail: Calling Out Anjelica Huston's 'Pillow Face' Isn't OK (Even If She's Admitted To Plastic Surgery

Anjelica Huston has spoken openly about plastic surgery-including botox and collagen injections-but whatever interviews she’s given in the past about her looks, the Daily Mail‘s speculation about her looks at a recent showing of Smash in LA are still despicable. The headline alone is offensive: “Anjelica Huston, 61, becomes Hollywood’s latest pillow face victim as she displays her suspiciously plump cheeks,” it reads. But the article itself is nothing but an insult, embellished with past quotes about how she’s conformed to the Hollywood plastic surgery norm with age. More »

Daily Fail: ‘Aging Gracefully’ Doesn’t Mean You Have To Look Like Helen Mirren By Age 60

Daily Fail: 'Aging Gracefully' Doesn't Mean You Have To Look Like Helen Mirren By Age 60

If surveys that say women should start “aging gracefully” at 59 aren’t bad enough, the Daily Mail is here to clarify that there is no such thing as sexy old women. Just women who look amazing past the age of 60 because they’re “aging gracefully,” and those who apparently look terrible because they don’t conform to society’s ideas about what tone of lipstick or type of fabric they should wear.

Daily Fail: Oprah Didn’t Have A Breast Cancer Scare Because She Chose Career Over Kids

Daily Fail: Oprah Didn't Have A Breast Cancer Scare Because She Chose Career Over Kids

Oprah opened up about a breast cancer scare at a conference in Los Angeles last month, and she also told the New York Times about her struggles at the helm of OWN and O Magazine. The Daily Mail‘s summary is dramatized, as can be expected, but it also couches a pretty offensive dig at women who choose to focus on their careers, minus a family–in the form of scientific claims about breast cancer risk.

Daily Fail: ‘Unapologetic’ Awards Show Outfits Aren’t An Excuse For Christina Aguilera Weight Jabs

Daily Fail: 'Unapologetic' Awards Show Outfits Aren't An Excuse For Christina Aguilera Weight Jabs

Christina Aguilera wore two outfits that revealed her body shape at the American Music Awards last night. But what does it all mean? A chance to go on a Christina Aguilera weight snark at The Daily Mail, of course! Their interpretation of her “unapologetic” wardrobe is that it was an act of “defiance to the skinny”–because obviously, Christina Aguilera should be apologizing for her weight and wearing mumus while she whittles herself back down to teen Christina Aguilera weight.

Angry Writer Suggests No Penis Is Too Small, It’s That Women’s Vaginas Are Too Big

Angry Writer Suggests No Penis Is Too Small, It's That Women's Vaginas Are Too Big

This is the most amazingly oblivious thing I’ve seen in a while: Peter Lloyd – a male writer skeptical of science saying “size matters – has taken to the Daily Mail opinion pages to warn women we’re next! That’s right, ladies, if folks are gonna dare start suggesting that female pleasure might be affected by physiological reality, then men might just start critiquing women’s bodies. More »

Daily Fail: Study Finds 29-Year-Old Women Are Hideous, Need More Anti-Aging Products

Daily Fail: Study Finds 29-Year-Old Women Are Hideous, Need More Anti-Aging Products

Crusading against the idea that all women over 30 are old hags has been something of a hobby horse of mine lately. It’s a fight that’s generally met with ‘Amen’s’ from Gen X and Y women and skepticism by similarly-aged men (note to guys: just because you personally don’t subscribe do the idea that it’s all downhill for women’s looks after 23 doesn’t mean we’re not bombarded with that message from myriad directions). Well, lo and behold — as if to perfectly illustrate my point — this Daily Mail article about how women worry about the visible effects of aging “at just 29 YEARS OLD.” Like so many pieces in our favorite tabloid, the writer is ostensibly credulous at this phenomenon while backhandedly exclaiming at how old and ugly 29-year-old women are.

Daily Fail: Judging Juice Detoxes By Jennifer Aniston and Janice Dickinson’s Looks

Daily Fail: Judging Juice Detoxes By Jennifer Aniston and Janice Dickinson's Looks

Rumors of Jennifer Aniston‘s daily juice habits have spurred a new wave of headlines about celebrity juice detoxes, and as usual, there’s a lot of confusion and misinformation surrounding the trend. But Daily Mail‘s latest contribution is especially bad: Titled “Juicing can wreck your looks: Flaking skin, hair loss and rotting teeth. The latest A-list diet craze has some ugly side-effects,” it’s just a sneak-attack on women’s looks—in this case, Janice Dickinson’s—thinly veiled as helpful health advice. Sound familiar? More »

Daily Fail: Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Knee Wrinkles (‘Kninkles’) Do Not Make A Trend Piece

Daily Fail: Catherine Zeta-Jones' Knee Wrinkles ('Kninkles') Do Not Make A Trend Piece

Slow news day? Why not pick over celebrity photo galleries for photos that reveal their knee wrinkles, blow ‘em up, crop them, and talk about how ugly they are? Title it “Wrinkly, knobbly, saggy – meet the celebs going weak at the knees!” and you have a Daily Mail article that, while not 100% shocking coming from them, is definitely one of their biggest fails of late. We hardly think that the imperfections in Catherine Zeta-Jones‘ knees make a trend piece, but then…we also aren’t trawling pics of celebs’ bodies for flaws to report on.
