Chinese women warned not to wear miniskirts
Police recommend that they cover up when riding public transportation to avoid harassment.
Women in China are being told what to wear and where to sit in an effort to shelter them from sexual harassment. According to the Daily Mail, Chinese police are warning women not to wear revealing clothing such as miniskirts or hot pants if they plan to take public transportation. In addition, the police are advising them to avoid sitting on the upper decks of buses and to cover themselves with bags, magazines or newspapers so no one can sneak a peek.

“Women should not wear minimal clothing, such as miniskirts or hot pants, when taking public transportation and should call police promptly if they are sexually harassed,” says a statement released by the Chinese police. “Women are advised to not sit on higher levels of buses and to stand on lower stairs, to avoid being the target of inappropriate picture-taking, and they should shelter their bodies with bags, magazines and newspapers.”

IT IS JUST AMAZING HOW PEOPLE CAN GET OUT OF SHAPE BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE TYPES IN CAPITALS. I SHOULD GO TO MY ENT TO CHECK MY HEARING BECAUSE I CAN NOT HEAR A THING. IF IT BOTHERS YOU SO MUCH DO NOT READ ANY COMMENTS THAT ARE IN CAPS. WHY DOES IT BOTHER YOU-- DO YOU HAVE ISSUES THAT YOUR PSYCH SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF-- DO ALL CAPS CONFUSE YOU-- IS THIS A PLOT SO THE WORLD WILL ONLY DO IT YOUR WAY--DO YOU HAVE CONTROL ISSUES, REMEMBER THAT OTHER GUY WHO WANTED EVERYONE TO DO IT HIS WAY AND ONLY HIS WAY--HITLER--- TRY SOMETHING NEW --RELAX--IF THE ONLY COMMENT YOU HAVE IS ABOUT THE CAPITALS JUST WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN LITTLE SELF. IT SEEMS THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE IF YOU WOULD.
If you dress like a slut, you shouldn't be surprised when you are treated like one. Does that give a man the right to sexually assault you? No, it doesn't. But women who fail to admit that there is an element of male society that is borderline animal are just stupid. There are lots of pervs and sex addicts out there and if you leave the house scantily clad, the pervy types are going to assume that you are looking for trouble.
Yeah sounds like they really need a much more serious consequence for rape and harassment there.
Even women with their husband or boyfriend have been gang raped on buses in India. I think this might be a reaction as man over there feel they aren't in control anymore.

Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.
Some people look younger than they are, some look older. Even those with easy access to BOTOX and personal trainers. Can you guess the age of these celebrities?

Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.
