Boy, the body positivity crowd sure seems determined to make things tough for ol’ T Lo lately. Miss Ashley gets all the respect in the world for embracing who she is, for challenging beauty norms, and for trumpeting the importance of self-confidence in all women, regardless of what the fashion or beauty industries passively say about them. It’s all good and we’re a hundred percent on board with it.

But Miss Girl …

 

This is not “serious author” style.

Look, we get it. She’s literally selling confidence to women who feel that their confidence is always being stripped from them or bombarded by a culture that doesn’t think they should be confident. Stepping out in a bodysuit under a mostly-imaginary dress is a powerful way to declare that you love how you look and that the rest of the world can suck it. As a bit of promotion for the book, we can’t say it doesn’t work.

But it’s not stylish. Not remotely. It’s pure Kardashia.
