John Legend, Chrissy Teigen gave the gift of grief, here’s what they deserve in return

OPINION: Pregnancy loss is devastating, which is why those who’ve experienced it deserve to do whatever they need to access healing.

The photos released by Chrissy Teigen and John Legend should be revered for the gift that they are. As celebrities, they had no choice but to make their loss public, but they didn’t simply share their loss, they gave us images that let us in on their grief, and for that we should be grateful.

Losing a pregnancy is a special kind of grief. You mourn for everything that could have been. For hopes and dreams that will never be fulfilled. While some form of pregnancy loss impacts 10-25% of all pregnancies, and many women will experience more than one loss, we still struggle to talk about it, and often judge the women who do.

Arike Ogunbowale Talks Fashion, The Dallas Wings, And Social Justice

Arike Ogunbowale is one of the WNBA’s fastest rising stars. In just her second season in the league, she averaged a league-high 22.8 points on 41% shooting, 3.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game. In doing so, she earned the 2020 WNBA Peak Performer Award for scoring after posting the highest scoring average by a second-year player in league history.

The former Notre Dame guard took over games with ease this season, and was one of the more dependable figures on a young Dallas Wings team that was hindered by injuries this season. In 2020, Ogunbowale had 37 straight games in double-figures scoring, good for the second-longest double-digit streak in franchise history. She also had four games in which she scored at least 30 points.

As she showed this year in Bradenton, Florida, Ogunbowale is a force to be reckoned with in the WNBA. And off the court, she’s making

Revolution Beauty Nightmare Before Christmas Collection Is Scary Good

Tim Burton fans know the truth. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a perfect movie. It’s both a Halloween and Christmas movie, has the best creepy music and its characters make the coolest costumes. Revolution Beauty’s Nightmare Before Christmas Collection is another fun addition to the Tim Burton fam. Because Halloween 2020 might not look like you expected it to look, there’s a chance you might be home making TikToks instead of out at a party. That’s OK. This collection is perfect for every transformation video.

The cruelty-free, affordable beauty brand is a favorite for its pigmented shadows in trendy hues. This collection is cute as hell with Nightmare-inspired packaging and shade names.

Nothing costs

— Sarah Hawkes, co-director of the Global Health 50/50 research group


In Her Words is available as a newsletter. Sign up here to get it delivered to your inbox.

In May, in a small village in Herat Province in Afghanistan, Sediqa’s husband came down with symptoms of Covid-19 and was taken to a hospital in Herat City for treatment. When he came home, 10 days later, Sediqa looked after him.

Within a week, she fell ill, too.

“I had the same symptoms and day by day, it got worse,” said Sediqa, whose last name has been omitted for fear of repercussions. “I was feeling so weak, I didn’t feel like eating or drinking.”

But when she asked to go to a hospital, her husband refused. “He said ‘no way.’ He told me to sunbathe

Yo Colorado highlights state’s golden age with retro colors in clothing line

It’s hard not to think about the good ole days right now. And that’s part of why this week’s “In Good Company” is so fitting.

Yo Colorado has captured the essence of Colorado from its most colorful days.

Their apparel turns 70s and 80s retro cool into a fashion statement.

Their storefront in Golden is like a time warp, filled with clothing and colors from Colorado’s golden age.

“I came here when I was a kid and camped with my family,” said Yo Colorado co-founder Brad Miller. “And, I have these memories of campers with the brown, orange, yellow stripes on them.”

Miller and fellow co-founder Pe Maslowsky started Yo Colorado seven years ago as an ode to the past with a modern day appeal.

“We had this idea for a vintage looking ski beanie that would somehow represent Colorado,” said Miller. “And, we didn’t see anything like that out

Pandemic may set women back for decades: report

As if the threat to health and livelihoods stemming from the coronavirus pandemic wasn’t enough, a new report suggests that the lasting impact might be devastating for women, in particular.

Bloomberg reported Wednesday that for Black and Hispanic women those projections are even worse. They say more than 10% of Black and Hispanic women remain unemployed during the public health crisis and it’s unknown what the future may hold.

What the Hell is Biden Beauty?

A new “beauty brand” was announced on Wednesday called Biden Beauty—yes it is named after Joe Biden but no it’s not coming from his campaign. Despite labeling itself as a beauty brand and being represented by a beauty PR company, Biden Beauty sells but a single beauty product: the Biden Beat, which is a blue makeup sponge priced at $20.20, clever. Other merch on BB’s page includes a hoodie, a tote, and some pins and stickers all devoted to “Joe Biden’s natural beauty” but not items that will do anything for the wearer’s beauty. It’s unclear whether this is a cosmic joke, a makeup school final project gone wrong, or something sponsored by Ellen (seriously those hoodies look like Ellen’s show font). It also is very confusing why Joe Biden, who is an average-looking man at best, inspired this product, but it’s 2020 and

“For me, it’s the circle of life,” says Julie Taymor. What else would anyone expect of her?

As the mind behind the groundbreaking, Tony-winning theatrical production of “The Lion King,” as well as films like “Frida,” “Across the Universe” and “The Tempest,” Taymor’s entire career has been steeped in storytelling.

Her new film, which she co-wrote and co-produced as well as directed, is no different. Based on Gloria Steinem’s memoir “My Life on the Road,” Amazon Prime’s “The Glorias” depicts one remarkable life told non-linearly and through four remarkable actresses, including Oscar winners Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore. Bette Midler and Janelle Monae also star. The director appeared on “Salon Talks” recently about her latest larger than life project. You can watch the interview here or
