Why Actresses Will Be Wearing Black To The Golden Globes

Fri, 12/15/2017 - 15:21

It's a very powerful statement

From the editors of Marie Claire UK

The Golden Globes 2018 are in touching distance, taking place this year on 7th January in Los Angeles.

As the first event of the packed awards season calendar, the Globes often serves as a forecast for the award shows ahead – predicting everything from who will win the best actor and actress gongs to political stands that will be made across recipient speeches and red carpet appearances.

With the 75th Golden Globe awards nominations announced last week, we already have an idea of what we can expect from 2018’s awards season – big wins from Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird and I, Tonya – plus a political stand against sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Following in last year’s footsteps, the 2018 awards will serve as a platform for political protest – and while last year’s focus was protesting Trump’s immigration ban – this year will target sexual harassment in Hollywood.

The past few months have been consumed by a shocking wave of sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood heavyweights, prompted by the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations, seeing over 50 women come forward with claims of harassment and in some cases assault against the 65-year-old.

Over 50 women have come forward with claims against Harvey Weinstein

It was therefore reported today that actresses will be wearing black to the Golden Globe awards in protest – from nominees Jessica Chastain and Meryl Streep to Emma Stone.

The protest against sexual assault is also expected to extend past the red carpet during awards season with Kevin Spacey’s award already being revoked and Harvey Weinstein being removed by BAFTA after both faced allegations.

We’ll be tuning in on January 7th to see what happens.

Meghan Markle’s Sell-Out Handbag Is Being Auctioned For Charity

Thu, 12/14/2017 - 14:15

Proceeds will go towards the Terrence Higgins Trust...

From the editors of Marie Claire UK

Cast your minds back a couple of weeks and you’ll remember Meghan Markle making her first official royal outing with fiancé Prince Harry in Nottingham.

The Suits actress, 36, looked beautiful in a chic navy coat, which she wore with a khaki midi skirt and black suede boots by Kurt Geiger.

Tim Rooke/REX/Shutterstock

But it was that bag that everyone was talking about – a statement burgundy tote by Strathberry.

As expected, it promptly sold out. In 11 minutes, no less.

If you missed out, you’ll be pleased to hear that you’ve still got a chance to snap one up, all while making a sizeable donation to charity.

Meghan Markle is now engaged to Prince Harry

The Scottish brand (a departure from Meghan’s usual American and Canadian sartorial go-tos) kept one solitary tote back, and are now auctioning it off to raise money for HIV and Aids charity the Terrence Higgins Trust.

Poignantly, this was the cause Meghan was supporting in Nottingham.

The original price of the bag is £295 but the auction has already reached £920, so it’s likely it’ll sell for over £1000 more than than its value.

The bidding kicked off on Tuesday 12 December on eBay, and is set to run until Sunday 17 December.

According to Strathberry’s website, they will be restocking the piece at some point.

But if you can’t wait that long and/or want to make a charitable donation, this is the way to go.

Good luck!

Chloë Moretz Opens Up About Her Painful Break Up From Brooklyn Beckham

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 10:12

And it's completely relatable

From the editors of InStyle
Words by Meghan Overdeep

Chloë Grace Moretz is finally opening up about her most recent break from on-again boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham.

Beckham,18, and Moretz, who have been involved on-and-off since 2014, split up for the second time in September 2016, and it wasn’t easy for the actress to move on. ‘I went through a hard year and I’m not going to hide that,’ Moretz, 20, recently told Australian lifestyle magazine Stellar. ‘I had to deal with this new level of fame while I was growing up, I was getting out of a relationship and all of it was very public. I wanted to hide.’

+=❤️

A post shared by bb (@brooklynbeckham) on Nov 7, 2017 at 9:54am PST

The Neighbors 2 star admits she became a ‘hermit for a bit,’ and relied heavily on family during the time apart from her British beau.

‘They were like, “That’s all great that you want to go away—but you can’t. You are your own person. You’re going to have to deal with this sort of thing.”’ Moretz recalled. ‘I felt like things were falling apart, like my head and heart weren’t in the same place. Things started to change when I realised I have the power within to change them.’

After nearly a year apart, the coordinating couple reunited for a third time in August 2017. Hopefully the third time’s the charm for these too-cute lovebirds!

Adriana Lima Is Not Leaving Victoria’s Secret Anymore

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 09:33

And everyone's confused...

From the editors of People
Words by Brittany Talarico

Adriana Lima is one of the most famous lingerie models in the world, and she plans on staying there. The 36-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel is still working with the brand, despite Internet buzz that she quit her involvement with the lingerie giant.

On Sunday, Lima posted a heartfelt Instagram note saying she would no longer “take off her clothes for empty causes.” Her words sparked some to question whether she would be hanging up her wings for good. But the model, who just walked her 18th Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai in November, will continue to collaborate with the label and was focused on sending a message of female empowerment.

“As Adriana mentioned in her post she received a recent offer where she was not aligned with the direction,” a rep for the model tells PEOPLE. “Adriana is blessed to be able to work with all of the brands she does including Victoria’s Secret.”

PEOPLE caught up with the model backstage in China, and she was very emotional and moved by her lengthy tenure at Victoria’s Secret.

“I plan to be at 20. Two more years. Maybe more, I don’t know,” she told PEOPLE backstage of her goal to walk in 20 shows with the brand. “It’s nature. I’m working out, I’m being healthy, so let’s see how the body is going to turn out. But I enjoy it. So let’s say 20.”

The Brazilian model has become such a spokesperson for the brand, that we’ve dubbed her the “Guardian Angel,” for all the praise she gets from the younger Victoria’s Secret models.

“I appreciate to get this kind of respect and love from the girls I work with,” she shared. “We work together. We spend a lot of time doing the show so it’s important that we have this kind of connection with each other. It will show later in the work, when we are on the runway or doing commercials together. I really appreciate this from them.”

Watch Meghan Markle Give Fashion Advice in These Old Television Clips

Fri, 12/08/2017 - 11:46

Prince Harry's fiancée has always been admired for her classic style

By Jennifer Davis

From the editors of InStyle US

We all know that Meghan Markle was brilliant as Rachel Zane on Suits, but that wasn’t where her high-profile TV career ended. Oh no, in fact, she racked up a slew of on-camera appearances that included everything from being a briefcase girl on Deal Or No Deal to a fashion expert on America’s Today Show.

That’s right. To promote her now defunct lifestyle website The Tig, she woke up bright and early to chat fashion with co-host Savannah Guthrie. Thanks to the producers on the morning show, there’s now a video compilation of all the times she appeared on the show as an expert.

During her segments, she discussed everything from cosy winter trends, autumn staples, and the best breezy summer looks. She also advised viewers how to get runway looks for less.

Clearly, her fashion taste has always been great. Case in point: the two on-point ensembles she’s worn since officially becoming engaged to Prince Harry. Thanks to her innate sense of style, she’s quickly become an icon in her own right, and has even beat out future sister-in-law Kate Middleton as the celebrity people want to dress most like in 2017.

We have a feeling that her real reign as a fashion expert really is just beginning.

TBH, we were ready to head to the shops – but then we noticed something pretty upsetting.

The retailer had captioned its image: ‘We are totally crushin’ on this copper playsuit Prices from €8 (Available in: ) #Primark #fashion #ootd #weekend.’

And yep, you spotted it. It’s not being sold in the UK.

As expected, Primark’s followers are not best impressed. Comments include: ‘Why not in the UK? It’s so perfect ,’ and: ‘Whyyyyyy is this not available in the uk !!!!! I love this not happy primark [sic].’

Eep. Fingers crossed Primark take note, because otherwise we have no idea what we’re wearing for New Year’s Eve.

Did You Spot Meghan Markle’s Fashion Nod To This US Style Icon?

Wed, 12/06/2017 - 11:11

The resemblance is uncanny…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married next year

From the editors of People
Words by Erin Hill

For her first official royal outing, Meghan Markle was inspired by ‘American royalty.’

The former Suits star opted for a beige-chino style skirt, a fitted black turtleneck and over-the-knee boots. The ensemble was almost identical to the one Carolyn Bessette Kennedy wore when she was formally introduced to the press by her ‘prince,’ John F. Kennedy Jr. in October 1996.

Rex

Carolyn was stylish in a camel pencil skirt and a simple fitted black top, which she paired with tall boots. She also carried a black purse with a large handle, just as Meghan did.

‘It was really intriguing and interesting that she wore a very similar outfit to what Carolyn Bessette wore when we first saw her after she married John,’ Pamela Keogh, author of Audrey Style and Jackie Style, tells PEOPLE.

Rex

‘I like that both Carolyn and Meghan have their own style that they had before they met any sort of a public figure, and they’re not afraid to kind of show fresh, young modern style,’ Keogh continues. ‘You don’t get the sense that someone else is dressing them.’

After the newlyweds returned from their honeymoon, Kennedy Jr. formally introduced his new bride to the press and asked them to give her space as she adjusted to her new role in the public eye.

‘I just ask for any privacy or room you could give her as she makes that adjustment. It will be greatly appreciated,’ he told the press outside the couple’s Tribeca loft in N.Y.C.

He then returned into the building and reemerged holding hands with his new wife. They stood and posed for photos while fielding a few questions before they got into their car. Sadly, the couple died in a tragic plane crash almost three years later in July 1999.

Meghan has admitted to being inspired by Carolyn’s fashion choices in the past. She even called Carolyn’s wedding dress ‘everything goals.’

Style isn’t the only thing the two women share. Just as Kennedy Jr. spoke out in defence of Carolyn’s privacy, so did Prince Harry when he issued a rare statement defending Meghan from the racist and sexist abuse she endured at the start of their relationship in November 2016.

‘Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game — it is her life and his,’ the statement said in part.

We’ve Found A Similar Version Of Kate Middleton’s Zara Checked Coat

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 15:34

And it's even cheaper...

Kate Middleton is suffering from severe morning sickness

From the editors of Marie Claire UK
Words by Chloe MacDonnell

When Kate Middleton was photographed earlier this week arriving at London’s St. Pancras station in a checked grey coat from Zara, it immediately sold out. It’s hardly surprising – we all know the powers of the Kate Middleton effect. 

Kate Middleton was photographed at London's St. Pancras Station, Middleton paired her on-trend plaid outerwear — which features a lapel collar and an oversized button — with a gray turtleneck sweater, slim-fit black jeans, black booties, and her signature black textured leather, Polly Push Lock handbag from Mulberry. Simple, classic, and chic, with a big stinking sapphire ring to top it all off. #katemiddleton #duchesskate #duchessofcambridge #babyno3 #pregnant #zara #catherineduchessofcambridge #catherinemiddleton

A post shared by Kate Middleton (@katemiddletonfandom) on Dec 3, 2017 at 6:37pm PST

Plaid, and featuring a lapel collar and an oversized button it’s totally on-trend. Plus as Kate proved, is the type of coat that goes with everything. In her case, she decided to pair it with a grey roll-neck, slim-fit black jeans, black boots and a Polly Push Lock handbag from Mulberry. Simple and chic, no wonder it sold out within hours.

However, if you’re still hankering after it we’ve found a similar version and it’s even cheaper.

Say hello to this checked tailored version from River Island.

River Island

Priced at only £75 it’s of a similar style with neat lapels and a button placket.

We need this in our lives. NOW.

ASOS’s New Website Has Caused A Massive Stir Over On Twitter

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 12:23

Let's all take a deep breath, people

ASOS definitely has us wrapped around its little finger. First it gave us same day delivery, and then it launched its try before you buy service.

Cheers for making us skint just before Christmas, guys. Real helpful.

But not everyone is quite so happy with its latest change. The brand has unveiled a new website, which basically has the whole of Twitter up in arms.

So what exactly is different? Well, the design of its shopping pages has been updated, and the navigation bar has been edited to make searching easier.

Say hello to the new ASOS site…

However, the quick view functionality has been removed – and people are pretty upset about it.

Tweets include: ‘Asos updated the layout of their website and I feel betrayed what have they done its awful there’s no ‘quick view’ anymore?? that’s like online clothes shopping 101,’ and: ‘I’m liking the revamped @ASOS website but why isn’t there quickview anymore?! [sic].’

Others just can’t get used to the new layout. One shopper wrote: ‘Im irrationally angry at the new ASOS website. I DON’T LIKE CHANGE,’ while another said: ‘What did you do to your website? It used to be so easy to use… [sic].’

@ASOS What did you do to your website? It used to be so easy to use…

@ASOS Your new website is cuuuuute!

— Kemi Aofolaju (@kemirrobyn) December 5, 2017

Happily for ASOS, there are also plenty of good reviews, such as: ‘LOVE the new @ASOS website ,’ and: ‘Your new website is cuuuuute!’

TBH, we get that it can be difficult to adjust to change. But we think everyone should just give it time.

And let’s be honest, nothing’s ever gonna stop us shopping on ASOS. Because that’s a life-long addiction right there.

Primark Is Letting You Customise Your Own Disney Tee So Please Form An Orderly Queue

Mon, 12/04/2017 - 15:11

Whether you're a real life Disney Princess or a massive Star Wars fan, this will be music to your ears...

STOP EVERYTHING. Primark may have just fulfilled all of our festive dreams.

Just when we thought the high street hotspot might be all out of wonderful Disney-related ideas – we mean, we just didn’t think they’d be able to top the Beauty and the Beast lamp, or the PJ set that had over 200,000 Instagram likes – they’ve announced something that’s sent us into a real tizzy.

Primark has only gone and launched a customisation station, just in time for Christmas.

The much-loved retail giant has rolled it out in their Oxford Street East store, and you can choose from two designs – Disney or Star Wars.

A whole host of characters – including a very festive Mickey Mouse, and a not-so-festive Darth Vader – are included, along with different slogans and a number of patterns.

What’s more, you can even add a completely customised message of your very own. WE KNOW.

True to form, Primark are keeping their prices low – with each tee costing just £8 for an adult, or a mere fiver for kids’ sizes.

Basically, we want some Disney merch with our name on it, STAT.

We predict that there’ll be MAHOOSIVE queues, so it’s probably best to get in there quick.

Primark Sportswear: The Best For Your Workout

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 05:16

New year, new you, new gym kit...

Primark has long been our one-stop shop for all things fashion, but did you know they also stock a pretty fabulous range of Primark sportswear that is ticking ALL of our workout boxes right now.

Because lets face it ladies, buying comfortable and affordable sportswear can quite often become a little bit of a retail mission. First you have to try and find the right clothes to suit your workout (yoga, cross training, boxercise, etc), then you have to make sure it’s comfy before embarking on some mammoth gym session (no one likes chaffing), and lastly, it also has to suit the tightness of your purse strings. That’s where Primark sportswear comes in.

Once again, the lovely people at Primark have provided us with the solution to all our sportswear woes with a new collection of uber stylish and super-wearable gym pieces that will fit every exercise need, without breaking the bank.

Primark Sportswear Crop Tops

Crop top, £5, Primark

With separates starting from only £3.50, you can no longer sack off that spin class you planned with your BFF because you have ‘nothing to wear’. These ones are so good, we don’t ever want to take them off.

Primark Sportswear Leggings

Leggings, £6, Primark

As well as stylish ties and mesh panels, Primark leggings also have the added benefit of seamfree lines, lightweight fabrics, and super breathable shapes; all key factors in making sure that your gym kit performs as well as it looks. If high impact sport isn’t your thing then don’t panic; Primark  has some rather chic pieces for all you yoga and pilates girls out there who prefer the stretch over the burn – we’re particularly loving their ballet-inspired black leggings with statement wrap around tie-side detail: a great way to add a cute little twist to your yoga kit.

Primark Sportswear Tops

Vest, £4, Primark

Whether you’re after a long-sleeved top for an al frecso run or a vest for your spin class, Primark has something for everyone. The best part? They start from just£4. We’ll take one of each.

You know the drill ladies – don’t leave it too long to get down to your nearest Primark store- these pieces will be snapped up quicker than you can say protein shake. Don’t worry though, we’ve got loads more going on over at our best Black Friday trainer deals and Black Friday clothing deals pages if you want even more athleisure.

Happy sportswear shopping!

Best Party Dresses: The Look Edit

Thu, 11/30/2017 - 14:38

From £15...

Party dresses are one of the best wardrobe investments you can make. Sure, you’ll probably have a busier social calendar around Christmas time, but parties come up all year round, so you’re going to need one whatever the month. To help you out then, we’ve handpicked the best and most affordable styles on the high street to suit every occasion, shape and size.

Black party dresses

Everyone knows you can’t go wrong with a black party dress. Whether you’re a minimalist or not, a black party dress is the sort of party dress you can style to suit literally every event. Choose a mini length and dress up with strappy stilettos and clutch bag for a girl’s night out, or go for a long sleeved midi version and choose court shoes for after-work drinks.

Sequin party dresses

If you thought sequin party dresses were just for Christmas, you can think again. You might feel OTT, but just make sure you choose your sequin type according to the time of year and occasion. Stick to black, heavy designs in autumn/winter, and switch for brighter, more delicate creations come spring/summer. Here’s our top three picks:

BEST ANKLE BOOTS TO WEAR WITH SKINNY JEANS

Skinny jeans (with a fantastic amount of stretch-to-denim ratio) are one of our go-to pieces when we seriously CBA to organise our outfits. Teamed with a cool slouchy knit, oversized shearling jacket and it’s a basic lazy-girl look that just works.

But what boots are best to wear with your skinnies? Well, Chelsea boots always work, plus any that hug your ankles – so you’re nailing that sleek ankle silhouette, and yes we said ankle silhouette. If your skinnies are cropped – even better, making room for a peek of a fishnet or coloured sock.
