Shundiin Whitehorse, 16, won second place in the Social Distance Powwow’s red jingle dress contest.

For Shundiin, multiple attempts at the traditional dance were not an option, as she filmed her entry in negative 35-degree weather in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Influencer Bretman Rock says separate clothing for men and women ‘shouldn’t even really be a thing’

  • Bretman Rock told Insider on Tuesday that he wants to make an impact on the fashion industry.
  • He believes gender-specific clothing shouldn’t “be a thing.”
  • Rock also talked about his fashion inspiration and partnership with the shopping app Klarna.

Bretman Rock is known around the world as a beauty influencer and social-media star – and now he’s ready to shake up the fashion world.

Speaking with Insider on Tuesday, Rock said he began shifting his focus away from the beauty industry – and its surplus of drama – in 2020. In doing so, according to the influencer, he’s been able to focus more on fashion, partnering with Stella McCartney, Paco Rabanne, and the shopping app Klarna within the past year.

In the future, however, Rock wants to take things even further.

“I really wanna switch up the gender labels of freakin’ fashion,” he told Insider.

TV Anchor Has ‘Aha’ Moment, Creates Product For Female Journalists And Working Women

For 25 years, Reba Hollingsworth has reported the news on television. While change was the name of the game in her day-to-day reporting and anchoring duties at various TV stations across the country, one thing always remained the same.

The equipment she wore always made her physically uncomfortable

To report the news on television, journalists have to wear a microphone and earpiece — both are attached to wires, which in turn are attached to a battery pack. That pack is a solid, dense object, and women usually have no choice but to clip them in uncomfortable places— specifically if they are wearing a dress.  

For Hollingsworth, who anchors the morning news at WTVR in Richmond, Virginia, whether she was out in
