Calling someone a "hot mess" rarely comes across as a compliment, but Ashley Tisdale’s new lifestyle platform for women, 'The Haute Mess,' aims to inform women that it’s okay to embrace disarray in life.
The platform features Tisdale as one of 25 content creators who are on a mission to empower and educate women. Tisdale was inspired to create the platform after seeing far too many perfect blogging sites and finding herself saying "If only I had my sh*t together." Rather than trying to force herself into being something that wasn’t authentic, she describes: "Life is about learning how to make your own way and embracing the haute mess in all of us."
Other new women-focused platforms include VICE’s Broadly and Uncompromising Women from Penningtons, which also launched as places for women to connect and feel empowered.
