Emily Ratajkowski is the newest ambassador for Kerastase hair products. The model/actress' first campaign for the brand was photographed by Inez & Vinoodh. In an interview with Elle, Ratajkowski said she chose to work with the brand because it has values that align with hers. "Feminism is about the choices we make, and the freedom we have to make personal choices without judgment or retribution," she said. "For some people, their hair isn’t important to them, and that’s a totally respectful stance ... [but] for many women, how our hair looks and feels is an everyday part of our lives, whether we always want it to be or not. And ultimately, feeling good about yourself is good for your life and who you are."

LeBron James and Diddy are among the growing number of celebrities calling out H&M after the Swedish fast-fashion brand posted a photo on their website of a young black boy modeling a hoodie sweatshirt reading, "Coolest monkey in the jungle." The duo each Photoshopped their own version of the "racist" hoodie; James replaced the text with a crown, while Diddy's version read "Coolest king in the world." Said James in the caption, "We as African Americans will always have to break barriers, prove people wrong and work even harder to prove we belong but guess what, that's what we love because the benefits at the end of the road are so beautiful!"

Ashley Graham Opens Up About Working With Terry Richardson [The View]
While appearing on The View on Tuesday, Ashley Graham recalled her experience working with photographer Terry Richardson when she was just a teenager. Over the years, Richardson has been accused by multiple models of sexual harassment and assault and is currently being investigated by the NYPD. When asked if she believed she had been putting herself in danger, Graham replied, "Of course I did," but explained that due to the nature of the industry and what was expected as the norm, she couldn't justify saying no and missing an opportunity to add Richardson's praised photos to her portfolio. "You don't know walking into it, because you also have people who praise him ... who are like, 'Oh, he's an amazing person,' this and that," she said. "I said yes to the job, because you want to work with the best of the best."
