    This beauty pageant turned into a runway for women's rights

    In August, Perú's Minister of Women's Affairs announced that a record 96 women had died because of femicide. In a country already struggling with domestic violence, the report was simply devastating. On Sunday, contestants at the Miss Perú 2018 beauty pageant decided to use to their platform to amplify that data and bring attention to domestic violence in Peru. In lieu of citing their personal measurements, the contestants instead recited facts about women's rights in their home country. SEE ALSO: When jokes tell stories journalists can't You can watch the full moment here (starts at 3:46 minutes). "My measurements are: 2,202 cases of femicide reported in the last nine years in my country," Miss Perú Lima said when asked to give her measurements. Other women immediately followed suit. "My name is Karen Cueto. My measurements are 82 femicides and 156 this year so far," one contestant said. Miss Callao announced her measurements: "3,114 women victims of trafficking up until 2014." Miss Lonzano added hers in as well: "the 65 percent of university women who are assaulted by their partners." The women didn't act entirely independently. The competition's organizers posted clippings of murdered and assaulted women and made sure they were on full display as contestants walked down the catwalk. In 2016, an estimated 6,000 women were victims of domestic and sexual violence in Peru.  In August of this year, more than 50,000 Peruvians marched with Ni Una Menos to protest the epidemic of violence in their country. These contestants found their own way to march with them, they just did it on a catwalk. WATCH: Become an underwater handyman with these awesome power tools

    Brace yourself, because 'hair nails' are now a thing

    Between "braided" eyebrows and squiggle lips, you would think we have witnessed enough extreme trends to last a lifetime. But no—there's always room for more absurdity in the world of beauty.  Illusion artist Dain Yoon proved that on Sunday when she uploaded an image of her nails—each finger adorned with a little face and, yep, hair.  SEE ALSO: 'Braided' eyebrows are the latest absurd beauty trend that truly anyone can try "Many people told me I should delete those [sic] my photos before becoming a new trend," she wrote on Twitter.

A post shared by Mia Kennington (@thrillsoftomorrow) on Mar 14, 2017 at 3:05am PDT The "glitter booty" is the brainchild of artist Mia Kennington, who was inspired by the sandy-butt look that goes hand in hand with spending too much time on the beach. Kennington is part of The Gypsy Shrine, a group of glitter artists who host body art pop-ups at festivals. Kennington has been posting photos of her glittery experiments on Instagram.

    Sexist Fox Anchor to 'Teen Vogue' Writer: 'Stick to the Thigh-High Boots'

    It's shocking stuff, but it turns out young women can be interested in both fashion and politics. The concept seemed to bamboozle Fox News' Tucker Carlson Friday, but luckily, Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca was there to help. Duca was roundly praised for a recent article on the magazine's website entitled "Donald Trump Is Gaslighting America." She appeared on Carlson's show ostensibly to discuss an incident where a man confronted the president-elect's daughter Ivanka Trump on a JetBlue flight, but mostly to school the TV anchor. SEE ALSO: Obama trumps Trump and permanently bans Arctic drilling ahead of inauguration While Duca said no one including Ivanka and her children should be forced to endure "confrontation" while flying, she also conveyed the complexity of the woman's position. "She's a powerful, powerful woman who is connected very closely to the president-elect. Not just as his daughter, but in many ways as a business confidante, an advisor," she said. It's equally inspiring & upsetting to watch @laurenduca work through this man's inane sexism. She's an inspiration. https://t.co/7sUzDSienG — Robyn Kanner (@robynkanner) December 24, 2016 Tucker, meanwhile, wanted to ignore all that. Trying to force Duca into a soundbite, he insisted Ivanka was just Trump's daughter. "It's sinister for a daughter to support her father's presidential campaign because you don't like her father?" he asked. "It's sinister for a daughter to capitalise on the power of feminism ... while supporting a candidate who is the most anti-woman candidate this country has seen in decades," Duca replied. Well, yep. Seemingly unable to process the subtlety of that position, Carlson insisted he was just trying to understand Duca while purposefully trying not to understand her — a situation that eventually prompted Duca to just put it out there.  "You're actually being a partisan hack who is just attacking me and not even allowing me to speak." Really, as a Fox morning host who did plenty of goofy spots, Carlson's smugness loses him the exchange w @laurenduca https://t.co/5jM3FAqk5W — Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) December 24, 2016 That's when Carlson decided to get more patronising.  Smirking about her role at Teen Vogue and work on celebrity and fashion as well as politics, Carlson pushed Duca off the show with the line, "you should stick to the thigh-high boots. You're better at that." When she responded that he was sexist, he cut her off air completely.  Not very classy, but then, classy has never been his brand. It's very interesting that @TuckerCarlson started out accusing @laurenduca of being sexist then ended up shouting at her to stick to shoes. — Summer Brennan (@summerbrennan) December 24, 2016 (H/T Mediaite ) BONUS: Gov.

    The Good, the Bad & the Ugly: Apple Watch Reviews Are In

    Fashion’s main concern with the Apple Watch is how it looks—and the industry bestowed its aesthetic blessing months ago. Fashion photographer David Sims lensed the campaign, which debuted in Vogue, and now we can turn to less important things prettiness. They’re generally positive: Style.com’s Nicole Phelps writes, “Its real potential probably lies in the way it can simplify things.” She used the GPS technology, which would tap her on the wrist one way for right, another for left, to get around Tulum on a family vacation last week in Mexico. Our own David Pogue writes on Yahoo Tech, “The Apple Watch answers the question, “Why would anyone want a smartwatch?” Citing that most people pull out their phone nearly 100 times per day, he says the watch acts like “a filter.” Instead of keeping your phone in front of your face, you can glance at the watch and see if whatever it’s alerting you to is actually worth your time in that moment.
