Babe investigates: How old is too old for a belly ring?
I just want my stomach hole to shine, y’know?
by Jenn Ficarra
On Anna Faris' podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, Chris Evans says any woman over 25 who has a belly ring is a "hard pass." It was then that I began to spiral. If Chris Evans, an ice cream cone on the hottest day of the year, thinks they're trashy then I had to ask myself: are they?
For a second I thought maybe I was getting too old to have a belly ring but then I saw Priyanka Chopra has one too and I feel better.

Is there a certain age where a belly ring isn't hot but tragic? Were people looking at me with pity in their eyes because I still had belly bling? Did they think I was unable to let go of my carefree youth? Did they think I was trash?
What age is too old to still have a belly button ring? Asking for a friend….😏

For those of us who currently have them, is having a belly ring over the age of 25 social suicide? When is a person too old to have a belly ring?
"I'm 21 and want to keep mine forever."
"I wouldn't go as far as saying it's tragic but I feel like it may be a little much."
"I got rid of mine at 18."
How old is too old for a midlife-crisis belly ring? Asking for a middle-aged friend, obviously.

"When you feel you no longer want to wear it."
"I'm 21 and I'm torn between taking it out and having a hole in my belly or just leaving it in."
"If you think you're too old then you're too old."
When you buy a $10 belly button ring because all of yours are broken and you know you're too old for one but you're clinging to your youth

Some people definitely agree that a belly ring over 25 is trashy/tragic whilst others think that it's fine but over 30 is cause for concern.
But then I had a thought… were there any celebrities over 30 who still rocked a belly ring? The answer, my friends, is yes.
Our queen and savior, Britney Jean Spears, at the young age of 35 is still rocking the belly bling. And you guys? If it's good enough for the Princess of Pop then fuck the haters. It's good enough for us all.
Now, I will say, if the only thing standing between me and Chris Evans is a belly ring then I would happily rip mine out right now. But I guess there's only one answer to this investigation: do whatever you want and fuck other people's opinions. Wear it until you're 95 for all I care, just be warned that Chris Evans thinks you're a solid left swipe.
Guess how much these insane, giant body-pants cost and then tell me if god exists
Science may have gone too far

A new "minimal jumpsuit" by ASOS has sent the entire internet into a frenzied panic as everyone competes to figure out why on this godless Earth anybody would ever need need pants for their entire body instead of just their legs.First Vogue was pitching us arm-tights, and now we're getting body-pants stuffed down our impressionable…
Bella Hadid’s nipples popped out during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
She took it in stride
by Caroline Phinney
The only thing worse than falling during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which model Ming Xi did earlier today, is having a full on nip-slip at the front of the runway. And the only thing worse than a full on nip-slip is two full on nip-slips, with your parents watching from the front row.Today, that…
One of the VS models ate shit on the catwalk, but she still looked better than I ever will
It was baaaad
by Caroline Phinney
Watching the VS Fashion Show gives me secondhand stress because I’m constantly worried about one of them tripping. I don’t know why I don’t worry about this with other runway shows — maybe because I’m not watching — but there’s something about the teeny, tiny heels and long, flowing wings that get me shaking. During…
