This year will always be remembered as the year that women stirred things up. From the Women’s March in protest of Donald Trump’s presidential victory to the public dressing down of many of Hollywood’s most powerful figures amidst the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
But there are other elements of womanhood that people are apparently not ready for yet. The main one being body hair.
Many high-profile women have been trying to make it happen, from Paris Jackson to Miley Cyrus, but it hasn’t quite caught on.
However, society’s hatred of female armpit hair could be set to change after supermodel of the moment 22-year-old Gigi Hadid debuted her fuzzy underarms in her highly-anticipated shoot for LOVE magazine’s advent calendar.
The model ignited a furious debate online as people argued over the shoot, offering their opinions on the trend.
Many predicted that a blanket of body fluff would become the new must-have accessory for 2018 now that Gigi Hadid has endorsed the movement. Meanwhile, others were disgraced by the shoot, which they claimed to be nothing more than a publicity stunt.
“They use this ‘armpit hair’ to make controversy. This is for publicity!! That [is] all,” wrote one user upon viewing the video clip of the blonde beauty ‘working out’ for her contribution to the advent calendar, which also features models such as Kendall Jenner and Ashley Graham.

At the end of the day, it’s not just about what you wear, but how you wear it.
Let’s face it: Some of the fashion choices we made in the 2000s have not aged very well. The same goes for celebrities.
Who can forget Christina Aguilera's unfortunate “Dirrty” phase?

For our viewing pleasure, Shila, YB, and Herbert thought it would be fun to recreate some of the most iconic red carpet looks from the naughts.
Watch the full video here!

Shila took the plunge (literally) and transformed herself into J-Lo in that now infamous body-bearing dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards.
Yes, that dress.
YB and Herbert agreed to recreate that über-matching denim outfit Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake rocked as a couple at the American Music Awards in 2001.
You know the one.
Shila absolutely nailed J-Lo’s iconic red carpet look!
The dress was risqué but classy at the same time. It was definitely a statement piece.

And get a load of YB and Herbert as Britney and Justin in their full-body denim wear, ya’ll! Nailed it.
“The fact that everything was matching, and they kind of pulled it off together was really cool.”
And it wouldn’t have been an iconic red carpet look without an actual red carpet, so we had our BuzzFeed reporter Jazzmyne Robbins let our “celebrities” in on a little secret.
They had to wear those outfits the entire day. As in, they had to be seen in public in those get-ups.
Shila got ecstatic reactions like this one.
While YB and Herbert got mixed reactions, like this one. LOL!
“If anyone could actually pull off this look, you guys are rocking it and it's kind of freaking me out.”
After they played dress-up for this video, Shila, YB, and Herbert realized they could basically pull any outfit off, if they wore it with confidence.
Pro tip: There are no quick fixes when it comes to dropping weight.
Dieting is a practice as old as time. Back in the 1990s, one of the most popular products for people who wanted to lose weight were those arguably yummy SlimFast shakes.
Ironic that a weight-control product tasted so good, right?

Watch these gals test out the trendiest diets from the 90s!

And although Selorm and Maya were way too young to have dieted in the ’90s, they agreed to put themselves through a week of these fad diets from back in the day, because they’re cool like that.
Maya remembered how her “abuela” used to brag about being on the Atkins diet while she chugged a SlimFast. Ha!
Surprise! The ladies found out which diet they would be tackling. Selorm got the Atkins diet, while Maya drank them SlimFasts for an entire week.
Didn't sound fair at first, did it? Selorm didn't think so either.
Maya thought she’d be chilling, sipping on some tasty shakes, but in reality, she also had to consume “sensible diets” and exercise regularly.
She could drink a shake as a meal replacement, and could have three snacks a day, too. Although nothing was technically off limits, there was (of course) no junk food allowed. Yes, that meant no deep dish pizza either, Maya. Womp womp.
Selorm’s Atkins diet consisted of lowering her carb intake, lowering the amount of sugar she consumed, and eating lots more protein and vegetables.
The Atkins diet seemed a bit more manageable…or did it? “I get to eat whatever I want, and you are drinking water.”
Okay, so on day one (yes, on the first day) Selorm slipped when Maya caught her munching on a banana and peanut butter.
Her excuse: “I'm hungry.” Don't judge! We've all been there.
Meanwhile, Maya went home to Arizona on day two, where she had to make a store run after forgetting her SlimFast back home, ya’ll!
When day three rolled around, Maya was really feelin’ her SlimFast, until her dad reminder her she couldn’t have any of the dinner he was cooking. Ugh!
She even added some exercise to her regiment, complete with a 90s workout outfit.
On the fourth day Selorm was still struggling, but then started getting into the swing of things by cooking dishes like salmon with roasted tomatoes on it. Nice!
“I realized that some of the things that I ate for the Kardashian diet easily fit into this diet.”
Hallelujah! When the final day of their diet came, Maya realized that, although drinking the shake was super easy (yes, they were also yummy), she actually wanted to do more than just sip.
She wanted to get educated on actual nutrition instead of just cracking open a shake a few times a day.
And Selorm learned that when she tried to eat healthier, she had to go full throttle, and set up a solid game plan.
“I got quinoa, ya'll. That shit has a lot of iron in it!”
Great job, ladies! They made it through the challenge. Now, what should they try next in Rad or Fad?
Don’t knock a breakfast dessert pasta ‘til you try it.
For most of us, the holidays mean stuffing your face, and giving zero shits about the calorie intake, amirite?
I mean, how could you not when there's all that delicious food, not to mention the plethora of desserts!

In the spirit of holiday food, we thought it’d be fun to whip up that ridiculous-looking pasta Will Ferrell’s character, Buddy, eats in Elf.
Look at all that sugary goodness!

Watch to see how it went!

We asked Andrew Rea, host of the popular YouTube cooking show Cooking with Babish, to help us make this calorie-infested dish a reality.
He recreates foods from movies and television, and said he prides himself on accuracy. Every ingredient down to the brand and size was exactly the same.
First order of business was cooking the pasta. There were several techniques Andrew used to make sure it was fully cooked (like throwing it against the wall).
The key ingredient proved to be patience.
Once the carbs were locked and loaded, it was time to add some of the sweet stuff, so he started with a healthy dose of marshmallows and a nice drizzle of caramel sauce.
Here we go!
Then he topped it with chocolate syrup, dripped some maple syrup in the pasta, threw some chocolate chips on there, and added some color with the M&Ms.
Watch the master in action!
Andrew finished off his edible work of art by crumbling what looked like a brownie over the entire concoction.
“I've never given anybody something that's been so gross.”
All right, so it looked tasty AF, but was it any good? Andrew was excited to see what fans would think of this “monstrosity,” so we put some BuzzFeeders up to the taste test!
“Buddy's on to something!”
They thought it had a lot of levels of sweet, but the pasta somehow evened it all out. Hmmmm.
Some even went full method acting and ate with their hands, like Buddy did in the movie. Ewww.
At the end of the day, everyone was pleasantly surprised by how tasty Buddy’s breakfast dessert pasta was IRL.
Shoutout to Babish for making this happen!
Every year the world waits with baited breath to see who TIME magazine have chosen for their prestigious ‘Person of the Year’ award. The controversial accolade is awarded to the person who has “for better or for worse… done the most to influence the events of the year.”
The award was not part of mainstream consciousness until last year when the magazine chose then president-elect Donald Trump as the famous face for their cover. The public outcry was almost deafening. How could such a prestigious award be given to a man who’d caused such bitter unrest across the world? To a leader who’d been accused of sexual assault, racism and fraud?
However, Trump isn’t the most controversial figure to be honored by TIME. Back in 1938, the magazine named the Nazi Party leader, Adolf Hitler as ‘Person of the Year’, a mere year before he commenced with World War II. To add further insult to injury, they named the Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin as the title holder the following year, and again in 1942!
So when the magazine unveiled their 2017 ‘Person of the Year’, the expectations were pretty low, especially considering the tumultuous year experienced in politics and the entertainment industry. Could there possibly be any good people left on this Earth?
This year’s winner came in the form of ‘The Silence Breakers’, the men and women responsible for naming and shaming famous figures who’d abused their position of power to sexually exploit those in vulnerable positions. The accolade was represented by many of the women at the forefront of the movement, such as actress Ashley Judd and software engineer Susan Fowler.

Do you believe in ghosts? One woman from Bristol, England certainly does, but her encounters don’t involve graveyards, creepy old mansions, or holding séances. Her meetings with the recently departed include a sexy nighty and her spare bedroom!
Amethyst Realm, who considers herself a “spiritual guidance counselor”, claims she’s been having sex with ghosts for 12 years. She says the experience is so good that she now has no interest in ever having relationships with (living) men again.
Realm reveals that her first ghostly sexual experience occurred just after she and her then-fiancé moved into a new house. She claims there was definitely an entity in the house who showed an interest in her.
“It started as an energy, then became physical. There was pressure on my thighs and breath on my neck,” Realm said of the experience. “I just always felt safe. I had sex with the ghost.”
Realm says that one night while her partner was away, she attempted to seduce the ghost. She put on some sexy lingerie and went to the bed in the spare bedroom to wait. She claims she waiting a long time and was just about to drift off to sleep when the ghost appeared.
She says the sex is difficult to describe, but although she cannot see the ghost, she can definitely feel him. Realm and this ghost continued their affair for three years before being caught in the act.
