    It is called a manicure after all! Mark Ribeiro II, a founding fitness instructor at Fithouse and former “American Ninja Warrior” contestant, has received a ton of compliments lately — on his nail art. “A girl at the juice shop today said, ‘Oh, your nails are cute,’” Ribeiro, 34, tells The Post. “The women at work tell me my nail art is better than theirs.” While iconic rock stars such as David Bowie and Mick Jagger started embracing color nail polish decades ago, a new generation of A-listers are bringing high-fashion nail looks to the mainstream: Singer Bad Bunny gets...

    Come on boys, vogue! The youngest generation’s greater willingness to embrace nontraditional gender norms has opened up a new market within the beauty industry: men’s makeup. One-third of young men said they would consider wearing makeup, according to Morning Consult polling, while 23 percent of all men said the same. Founders of men’s cosmetic brands credit the increased interest among young men not only to a wider acceptance of the idea that gender is fluid but also to the pressure to be picture perfect at any moment, thanks to social media. “The stigma associated with buying and purchasing this product...
  • Barack Obama Is Still Dressing More Presidential Than The Current President

    44's wardrobe passes the litmus test for a third term Heads were scratched when George W. Bush rode to a second term in 2004. Despite Iraq, and despite having the linguistic capability of a GCSE creative writing class, the 43rd president clung onto another four years. That's because, allegedly, he was the man most voters would prefer to have a beer with: 57 percent of them according to a Zogby/Williams poll in the autumn of that year. And though his time in the White House is up, Barack Obama is still dressing the part of post-office beer buddy, too. At...

    1. Hunting Hunting was a hugely important skill for much of human history, but in light of the rise of cheap and readily available factory-farmed meat, hunting’s relationship to the food we actually eat has disappeared for the overwhelming majority of the population. If you grew up in a rural area, there’s a good chance you learned to shoot game at some point, but as much as many contemporary guys fantasize about being able to kill a wild animal and eat it (Mark Zuckerberg, anyone?), particularly if you live in a big city, there’s really not much real-world benefit to...

That means being responsible, working hard, being kind, respectful, compassionate,” Obama said at aconference for hisMy Brother’s Keeper initiative in Oakland.

    This month, David Beckham appears on the cover of style magazine LOVE 20.5, in Dior, styled by Kim Jones, green roses and bird tattoos spiralling up his neck.... Men are no strangers to make-up. Alexander the Great was a fan, while the Picts daubed their faces in blue woad. Wigs and beauty spots were popular in the court of Louis XIII – and let’s not forget the dandies. But somewhere in the 1800s, someone decided that real men don’t wear make-up and, after that, when they did, it was in a spirit of transgression. Bowie, Prince and Johnny Depp weren’t...

    VANCOUVER — As the famous Village People song declares, “Every man wants to be a macho macho man / To have the kind of body, always in demand.” But are “macho macho” mindsets becoming a thing of the past? A new study finds that male millennials are drifting away from stereotypical masculine values. The research, led by the University of British Columbia, showed that younger men tend to value selflessness, social engagement, and health over traditional male ideals like physical strength and autonomy.

    Emmanuel Macron wants to ban men from following women and asking for their phone number under new plans to end the 'macho' culture in France. A working party set up by, Marlene Schiappa, the under-secretary for gender equality, is looking to produce legislation making it illegal to harass people in a public place - and this could mean outlawing wolf-whistles.

    Move over Hadid sisters, you’re no longer the only ones with upfront assets to flash. As evidenced by recent splashy, sexy looks sported by Harry Styles, a number of preening professional athletes and models at recent fashion shows, male cleavage is busting out on the studliest stars. Shirts unbuttoned to the sternum and undone jackets allow well-built men to show off nicely sculpted chest muscles. And women in the rag trade are not complaining. “I am absolutely into it,” gushes stylist Calyann Barnett, who dresses elite athletes such as Usain Bolt, Rajon Rondo and Victor Oladipo. “When you decide to...
  • Mattel Gives Ken Doll A Makeover: Heavy-Set, Cornrows, Man Bun, 'Ethnically Diverse'

    CBS Local– Mattel, the makers of the famous Barbie and Ken dolls, decided to shake up the Ken doll’s previous image. Typically he’d be portrayed as a “nice guy,” as Mattel put it, with wavy blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. He would have had hardly an ounce of body fat if scaled onto a real human. He’s the guy Barbie would take home to mom to compliment her pot roast and taste in cardigans. But he’s vanilla no more: Mattel has released a line of 15 new and improved Ken dolls. ADVERTISING Diverse beyond just their ethnicity, these new...

    They won't relent until every red-blooded American male is toting one. I speak of the fashion industry's newest attempt to persuade men to carry pursues. In a new Chanel advertisement, a fashionable fellow named Pharrell shows, or tries to, that it's hip for a man to carry a purse. The fellow's full name is Pharrell Williams. He's a singer, record producer and fashion mogul who, according to Essence, is a "leader in disregarding societal norms when it comes to style." In the advertisement, Pharrell walks into a warehouse with a heavily ornamented purse strapped around his shoulder. He rides industrial...

    His new series has been greeted as a glorious comeback after an ignominious exit from the BBC. But Jeremy Clarkson’s show The Grand Tour has brought with it the familiar whiff of controversy thanks to a tasteless joke about ebola. The resemblance of a racetrack in his Amazon Prime series to a magnified image of the virus led Clarkson to dub it the Eboladrome. And the remark brought an immediate backlash from viewers startled by the former Top Gear star’s apparent insensitivity over a disease that killed 30,000 in West Africa two years ago.

    The subject of women in the military was addressed by both political parties at their national conventions last month, and it's no surprise that Republicans and Democrats came to diametrically opposite conclusions. After the two parties adopted sharply conflicting platforms in Cleveland and Philadelphia, Congress must now try to reconcile the same conflict in the annual defense policy bill known as NDAA, because the House version of that bill reflects the Republican view while the Senate version includes the Democrat position. The Republican platform states, "We oppose unnecessary policy changes including Selective Service registration of women for a possible future...

    Danish journalist Iben Thranholm on RT (interviewed by Anissa Naouai): "If you look at our politicians, they are like mothers. I mean, they are embracing, they´re inclusive and they talk about how we should embrace refugees. Of course we should help people that are in need, but they can´t deal with the rapings, they can't deal with terrorism. So, I mean, european politicians look weak, and that is because our culture has become feminized. This militant feminism that has been going on for decades, now has had the consequences that many men here have been brought up to be women...

    A YouGov study and documentary has found that only 2% of British young men even consider themselves masculine, with the majority believing themselves to be something in between manly and feminine. Apparently, most view the word masculine as a sort of dirty word. From YouGov: [Snip of YouGov quote...] Of most interest is the implication that men who identify themselves as masculine actually live more psychologically healthy lives. "Psychologically" in the sense that they aren't killing themselves, as suicide is the biggest problem facing UK young men. The words of the study, that they are willing to "talk about their...

    Robert Downey Jr. says that, as a rule, he doesn’t make endorsements in presidential elections — but that didn’t stop the actor from speculating about who his most famous character, Tony Stark/Iron Man, would choose in this year’s contentious race. In an interview with Howard Stern this weekend, Downey Jr. said that Iron Man would cast his vote for Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton. “I believe Tony [Stark], being a budding feminist, he would say it’s time to have some feminine energy in the White House,” the actor told Stern on the shock jock’s popular Sirius XM radio show.
