Jill Duggar Wears Pants In Public For First Time EVER!

The Duggar family has faced down just about every kind of scandal imaginable over the past few years, but we don’t think anyone could’ve predicted their latest controversy.

It all started back in March, when Jinger Duggar wore pants in a photo posted on her Instagram page.

If you’re only passingly familiar with Jinger’s family, you might be wondering what the big deal is.

The Duggars have strict rules about … well, about everything, really, but they’re particularly uncompromising when it comes to their dress code.

According to rules devised by parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, women are to wear long skirts or dresses at all times, even when playing in sports or engaging in other physical activities.

So Jinger wearing shorts, pants, and above-the-knee skirts is more than just a fashion statement–it’s an act of rebellion.

Jim Bob and Michelle had no choice but to accept her decision, as once Duggar women are married off, it’s their husbands, not their  parents who decide what they’re allowed to wear.

For months, it looked like Jinger would be alone in freeing her legs from their floor-length denim shackles, but now, Jim Bob and Michelle’s worst fears seem to be coming true:

Yes, Jinger’s older sister Jill Duggar is wearing pants, too.

Again, the decision to wear pants might not seem like an earth-shattering act of defiance.

In fact, putting on pants one leg at a time is such a commonplace activity that it’s become an idiomatic expression used to convey normalcy.

But imagine engaging in that activity for the first time as a 26-year-old mother of two.

As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out, no one in the Duggar clan has been more devoted to the family’s code of conduct than Jill.

As the first of her sisters to marry and start a family, Jill seemed to believe it was her responsibility to set an example by carrying on her parents’ ideals.

She’s spoken proudly of her family’s belief in “modest dress” and has gone to great pains to adhere to Jim Bob and Michelle’s guidelines.

When Jill worked as a volunteer firefighter, she even went so far as to modify her uniform, altering the pants into a sort of flame-retardant skirt.

Technically, the Duggar women are within the parameters of the family dress code if they keep the area from their neck to their knees covered, so as not to inspire any impure thoughts in the men in their lives.

But the floor-length skirt has long served as a symbol of female subservience and commitment to traditional gender roles for Jill and her sisters.

So opting for a pair of Levi’s is a simple act that sends an unmistakable message.

Sources close to the family say Jim Bob has been butting heads with his sons-in-law over their more progressive views, and he’s likely to take Jill’s decision to wear pants as another sign that he’s fighting a losing battle.

Jill was no doubt aware of how her latest pic would be interpreted before she posted it, which is why Jim Bob’s many detractors are singing her praises today.

Like taking a knee before a football game, sometimes a move as seemingly simple as wearing a pair of pants can serve as a powerful act of protest.

Jinger Duggar Wears Ripped Jeans, Fans Go Ballistic

From James Dean to Bob Dylan, America’s iconic cultural rebels have long made a point of sporting jeans in their most famous photos.

But there’s an upper-echelon of non-conformist for whom the mere donning of denim apparel does not constitute a sufficiently defiant middle finger to the khaki-clad establishment.

For these fashion freedom fighters, the stakes must be raised, the flesh must be bared–and the jeans must be ripped.

Move over, Sid Vicious, and take a seat, Springsteen. 

There’s a new maverick in town, and she goes by the name of Jinger Duggar.

As you can see (if you look very closely), Jinger is wearing ripped jeans these days, and it’s a very big deal.

In fact, given the rapid progression of her rejection of her parets’s staunchly conservative views we assume she’s just days away from smahing guitars, making crude gestures with bottles of Jack Daniel’s, and telling frightened neighbors to “slag off.”

Okay, we’re obviously joking, but believe it or not, some fans are really freaking out over Jinger’s latest fashion statement.

We suppose it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given the fact that Duggar obsessives lost it when Jinger started wearing pants last winter.

But from the reaction to her latest act of sartorial defiance, you’d think the 23-year-old was sporting a non-Duggar approved swimsuit.

(Which would be any swimwear that doesn’t look like something a mustachioed gent from the 1920s would wear in a steam room.)

The risqué photo was snapped by Jeremy Vuolo, who captioned his work:

“Trying my eye behind the lens (it helps having a beautiful subject).”

Despite the fact that we’ve already seen Jinger wear shorts, jeans, and above-the-knee skirts–all in defiance of her family’s dress code–this latest style statement is being treated like Jinger’s Sgt. Pepper’s.

“So happy for her to decide on her own,” wrote one commenter.

“Love the outfit! jeans suit you,” remarked another.

A third Instagram follower turned a teary eye to the future and dreamed of a day when Jinger would be permitted to put her Levi-clad extremities on display for a TV audience.

“I love her in jeans! Can’t wait to see her Jean outfits on the show hopefully,” the capitalization-happy dreamer commented on the photo.

It’s a nice thought, but we wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for that day.

Jinger’s decision to wear pants is still regarded by her parents as an act of open rebellion.

So as long as Jim Bob continues to call the shots at TLC, we’re guessing his family’s reality show will remain a skirts-only zone.

But that’s okay.

Fans of Jinger’s style will still have her social media pages, and it looks like she’s planning to continue making bold (by Duggar standards) choices for their enjoyment.

Stay tuned for Jinger’s leather jacket phase, which should begin sometime next week.

And watch Counting On online to support Jinger’s sisters, still shackled in their floor-length leg prisons.


Kylie Jenner Wears a Barely-There White Robe … Or Dress … Or Something

Kylie Jenner isn’t really known for her subtlety, so it’s good to be reminded that she knows more way to be seductive than posing in a fishnet bra.

Even when she’s just advertising things on Instagram, it’s great to see her wearing a dress!

Well … sort of. You’ll see.

Kylie Jenner posed in these two photos below.

She’s wearing what first looks like a very short bathrobe.

Now, Kylie is a SoCal girl through and through, meaning that she finds 60 degrees Fahrenheit to be “bitter cold.”

So as much as this girl likes to take off her clothes for the camera, we imagine that whatever bathrobe she wears off camera is probably one of those super thick ones so that she stays warm.

Don’t get us wrong, Kylie looks phenomenal in both photos, but it didn’t look like something that she’d choose to wear in her everyday life.

Well, we naturally looked at the captions.

We weren’t surprised to find that it was an ad.

We were surprised to learn something else, though.

Like we said, she looks great.

But this isn’t a robe at all, allegedly.

According to the company that sells these (and Kylie is definitely modeling in this as an ad, even tagging it as ad, which is great since other stars are getting in trouble with the FTC for posting Instagram ads without the tag), this is a dress.

Yes, really.

(We’re not defending that Fashion Nova choose to call this a dress, mind you, just … assuring you that this is the label that they have chosen)

Specifically? This is called the “Sugar Free Dress.”

But whatever they choose to call it, we wouldn’t recommend wearing this to a job interview or trying to wear it to prom.

Kylie looks great in it, but it really does look like it’s just one slight slip away from baring … something.

But hey, there are some parties where an adult would look great in this.

Kylie’s been doing a lot over the past couple of years to shed her imagine of being a kid.

She’s been very successful, despite being the youngest member of a celebrity family and despite growing up in front of the eyes fo millions of viewers.

(Also, she’s just been very successful, period — she’s a makeup mogul whose business could be worth a billion dollars in just a few years)

Life of Kylie didn’t get the best ratings.

There are no guarantees that it will be renewed for another season, no matter how inexpensive reality shows are to film.

Part of that is because the popularity of specific types of reality shows waxes and wanes.

Part of that is because nobody wants to sit around and listen to Kylie whine about being famous for a half hour.

But these pics are as good of a reminder as any that Kylie can still share bits of her life and monetize it through social media.

So even if her show never again sees the light of day, Kylie’s clearly not going anywhere.


Jesse Williams Wears a “Free” Shirt After Settling Child Custody with Estranged Wife

Jesse Williams is basking in bachelorhood after settling his child custody feud with his estranged wife. Paps spotted the actor Wednesday at a gas station in Los Feliz, where he was rockin’ a free t-shirt — literally. The rest of his outfit also…


Brian Austin Green: Who Cares If My Son Wears a Dress?!

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green sure do make some adorable babies, huh?

We know that because so far they've created three beautiful boys: four-year-old Noah, three-year-old Bodhi, and one-year-old Journey.

Megan and Brian haven't shared too many photos of their children over the years, but thanks to paparazzi photos and a handful of social media posts, we've had a few good glimpses of these kids.

And, just over a month ago, one of those rare glimpses brought on a whole, whole lot of hate.

See, Megan shared a few photos of her sons, and in one of them, darling little Noah was wearing a dress.

A Frozen dress, to be specific — an adorable Elsa costume.

It was a pretty cute picture, but judging by some of the comments people left, letting a four-year-old wear a dress is basically child abuse.

Some people told her that it was "so sad" that she's "confusing" Noah like this, while others said it was "disgusting" to let him wear a dress.

One particularly unhinged person even wrote "Putting your son in a dress conforming to the gay trans illuminati agenda. Burn in hell witch! You're sickening!"

Seems like too many feelings about something that is just not a big deal, right?

And in a new interview, Brian is telling it exactly how it is.

"So yeah," he begins, "my son, you know, he's four, and I've heard from some people that they don't agree with him wearing dresses."

"To them, I say 'I don't care.'"

"He's four, he continues, "and if he wants to wear it, then he wears it. And it's dresses, or goggles, or slippers, whatever."

"It's his life, they're not my clothes."

Solid points — but he's not done yet.

"I feel like at four or five," he says (Noah turns five later this month!), "that's a time when you should be having fun."

"He's not harming anyone wearing a dress, so if he wants to wear a dress, awesome. Good on him."

Did anyone else just develop a whole, whole lot of appreciation for Brian Austin Green all of a sudden?

Watch his full, amazing interview in the video below:

Melania Trump Wears Stilettos for Hurricane Trip, Outrage Ensues

To some critics, Donald Trump’s visit to Texas on Tuesday was appalling due to the President’s self-serving statements and behavior there.

He didn’t utter a word of empathy or even refers to the victims of Hurricane Harvey at any point, instead using the brief visit as a photo and PR op, bragging about the size of the crowd on the street and the response of authorities to the natural disaster.

If it wasn’t so disturbing and depressing, it would have been hilarious.

To others, however, the real sin of the President’s trip had nothing to do with the nonsense that spewed from his mouth.

And everything to do with what his wife wore on her feet.

Yesterday morning, Melania Trump was photographed departing the White House in weather-appropriate attire that included a bomber jacket, tailored black pants and a black top, which she paired with a functional pair of aviators.

​Fair and practical enough, right? Even if the couple didn’t encounter a single rain drop during its visit.

But Mrs. Trump also rocked sky-high snakeskin stiletto pumps.

And it was on these shoes that the Internet focused its outrage.

melania backlash

In Melania’s defense, she sounded far more sympathetic to the plight of those affected by Harvey than her husband, who sounded as if only he was affected by the storm…

… and in a positive fashion, no less.

“The effects of Hurricane Harvey will be felt in Texas, Louisiana, and other parts of the country for many months and years to come,” she said in a statement, adding:

“So far, 1.7 million people are under orders to evacuate their homes, and, as the floodwater in Houston rises, sadly, so will the number of evacuees.

“I want to be able to offer my help and support in the most productive way possible, not through just words, but also action.  

“What I found to be the most profound during the visit was not only the strength and resilience of the people of Texas, but the compassion and sense of community that has taken over the State.  

“My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Texas and Louisiana.”

Still, Twitter could not stop talking about those stilettos:

clueless diss

Upon arrival in Texas, however, the First Lady changed her clothing, slipping into a pair of sneakers.

She joined her husband in Corpus Christi while donning black skinny jeans, a white button down, Adidas shoes, aviators and a FLOTUS baseball cap.

Said her spokesperson to CNN shortly afterward:

“It’s sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes.”

That’s a fair point.

However, that’s sort of how social media rolls.

And it’s hard not to focus on fashion when the President is wearing a baseball cap that is for sale on his website.

Do the proceeds go to disaster relief in the wake of Hurricane Harvey? HA! Of course not.

They go to his reelection campaign fund.
