LFW is the fashion industry's favourite week of the year, but it is also the most frantic and exhausting. This combination of too much caffeine, not enough sleep, heels, queuing and dashing between shows means that Editors across the board have a lot of funny anecdotes. It's chaos. Often fun, glamorous chaos. Often not. It's not actually possible for Editors to be in five places at once, if we could we would. So this results in frantically running around Soho whilst trying to Snapchat, Instagram and write reports. While also trying to not be caught red face and puffing by street style photographers. 


1. “Once, a colleague and I were queueing in the rain for a show that was running 40 minutes late. A faux fur clad lady in pointed satin slingbacks toting a mock croc handbag introduced herself to us as a freelance stylist and proceeded to regale us with tales about her assistant’s ability to worm her way backstage at any show. We swapped cards and later that evening, came across said stylist inside the show venue, crying as she sat on the steps of the main staircase.

She explained that she’d promised a PR contact she’d be at the show just gone but was refused entry on grounds that she was late and they were over capacity. She tearfully pleaded with us to send her photos of the show we’d snapped so she could pretend she’d been in attendance. We offered some kind words and sent her a couple of sub-par images but despite explaining that her PR contact probably [actually, MOST DEFINITELY] wouldn’t care she hadn’t made it, her tears ceased to flow the moment she downloaded the pictures. 

Pawing at her tear-streaked mascara, she suddenly stood upright at the arrival of her photographer beau, with whom she invited us to attend an after party. We politely declined and made our own way to dinner."

2. "What really annoys me are girls who have seats look at you like you're a peasant when you ask them to move up. You don't own the row of chairs"

3. "Every PR contact you've ever had will suddenly become your BFF. That woman you met once 2 years ago will send you five emails a day calling you 'babes' and saying how much they want to 'catch up'. You know they are just trying to fill out their event, but you go along with it because you know, goodie bags"

4. "Back in the days when I was an editor's assistant, she'd make me call around and plea for her to be seated on the FROW otherwise she wouldn't attend. It was very embarrassing, particularly because she wasn't as important as she liked to think. Very awks." 

5. "A friend of mine had handed her business card to a woman, and they had a chat about which shows they were going to attend. When my friend was told for the second time that she had already checked in somewhere she asked them to describe what the person looked like and pieced it together. This woman had been using my friend's business card to get into shows! Note to self: don't trust anyone, fashionistas can be cut throat". 

6) “While interning many LFW seasons ago, a friend and I were given two invites to attend a show for a well-known designer by our supervisor. Given that we were industry nobodies, we were unabashed at forcing our way through the crowds and plopped ourselves down in the second row so as to be on the receiving end of what appeared to be a substantial goodie bag. 

The goodie bag was substantial indeed. And while there were no new season sunglasses or iPods (goodie bags post 2010 just don’t compete), a vibrant embossed cushion featuring the fashion house’s name pleased us to no end. Squealing with delight, we plotted how to nab a few more of them before leaving. 

Those around us glanced our way with disapproving glares as we shoved cushions left, right, and centre into our tote bags from the empty chairs beside us (apparently, it’s FROW or nothing for some). Escaping from the clutches of any hawk-eyed PRs, we left quietly into the night. Months later, we saw the same embossed cushion being sold on eBay. If only we hadn’t grown attached to them in our shared flats…"

7) "There are so many crazy things I've witnessed at fashion week, but one that stands out is when a brawl almost started. If you're late to a show, you expect to stand as your seat has probably been taken. Some girls didn't take too well to this and began shoving the people in front of them, so they could see better (or, in other words, take better Instagram pics). This escalated as the girls in front, quite understandably, didn't like getting elbowed in the back. Security had to come over and ask them to calm it."

Khloe Kardashian is the latest to appear on James Corden's feature 'Spill Your Guts' on The Late Late Show, where she picks between answering awkward questions or eating revolting food. Watch the video above, where she choses to eat a fish eyeball rather than say whether she think "OJ Simpson did it or not". Awks. 


James also asked her about her love life, where Khloe K admitted that she's newly in love with Tristan Thompson. So, yep, they're getting pretty serious and using the big ol' L word.

Watch both clips above in the gallery, and prepare to vom when James tucks into some chicken feet...

1. Compliments.
Your worst nightmare is someone saying something nice about you, to your face. God forbid it's a stranger, are they trying to make you die right there on the spot? Imagine if your obituary wrote cause of death: overwhelming awkwardness. You don't always have to react badly (see Jess Day from New Girl's reaction above, it's way too relatable), there are some tips for handling these situations. Be prepared, there are some responses that always work. "thank you so much, that's very kind", this isn't revolutionary, but it is polite. Or just be honest and say "That's so kind, I'm really bad at accepting compliments but I do appreciate it". Try it out next time someone says they like your hair in the street, you can do it...

2. Dating.
This is the worst for any awkward person. Yes you want to find love, but the process is more painful than pulling teeth. Overanalysing everything, like "who pays?", "He'll stand me up", "What if it's not a date and I misread the situation". These are thoughts that cause you to fumble and say awkward things, so the best plan is to make sure there isn't any miscommunication. When asked out for dinner make sure you ask if it's a date, be precise on time, and do something easy like drinks. Drinks mean you can take turns getting rounds, which prevents any awkward "who pays" situation. 

3. Jokes. 
Jokes are hard for awkward people. You'll say something you think is funny, and everyone thinks you're being serious, so are met with silence. To avoid this situation, make sure you introduce it as a joke, start of by saying "I've just thought of something funny...", then at least people will laugh out of sympathy. 

4. Names.
When someone gets your name wrong, rather than correcting it you just live with them calling you the wrong thing. Don't do this. If you don't immediately correct them, the next time they call you the wrong name just say "oops you must not have heard me last time, my name is..".

5. Awkward silences.
Can the ground just swallow me up?! You either make them even more awkward by pointing out the awkwardness, filling the silence with completely unrelated conversation or just freeze. When you get in this situation just remind yourself that the others are probably just collecting their thoughts, give it time, someone will speak. If they don't after several minuets just excuse yourself and go to the bathroom. Running from awkwardness is always a valid tactic.

Our beloved Sex And The City turned legal this week, celebrating 18 years since its very first episode! First of all, where did the time go and secondly, can you imagine a world without Carrie & co. trailblazing their way through all of life's most embarrassing scenarios?

Girls may have lead the way in the tensies, but when it came to being single in your 30s in the nineties and early noughties, there was only one girl gang we cared about. 

Here's 18 life lessons we learned from the 'writer', the 'romantic', the 'realist' and the 'boss' over the years...

1. Make sure to vary your holiday diet. Eating pre-packaged chocolate pudding all week can have DIRE consequences!
2. Don't put a bird in your hair, just on the off chance you get dumped at the alter... and you have a bird stuck in your hair.
3. Do sleep with the man you intend to marry, or prepare to play a lot of golf to compensate.
4. Don't hook up with your ex in Abu Dhabi just because your hubby wants a day off from your marriage. Sounds good, is actually a terrible idea.
5. Never try the home dye option for down there. Remember 'Bozo, the bush'? exactly. 
6. If a man is a bad kisser, dump him immediately. Don't do a Charlotte and attempt to coach him, your face won't be able to handle it. 
7. Don't pee on a guy just because he asks you to. Standard, really.
8. Spouting abuse at your ex's friend post break-up makes you look like a crazy lady. Yes, even if he did  break up with you on a post-it.
9. Do eat raw vegan if it means you get to take the exceptionally hot waiter home with you.
10. Avoid adult braces at all costs- #spinachgate is all we will say. It still haunts us to this day.
11. Eating cake out of the bin is generally a sign of madness- and- that you need to get out more.
12. Always start a greeting with 'Hello, my name is fabulous' because why the hell not?
13. Don't use Lucy Liu to bag you a Birkin. She will find out and she will keep your Birkin as punishment.
14. If you get stood up, don't assume the guy is a total douche. You never know, he could have died. Awks.
15. Turns out you can fart in bed and get away with it... only after the appropriate period of mortification has ended and have changed your name.
16. The Virgin Mary is in no way a replacement for your rabbit. Sorry Magda, we're with Miranda on this one. 
17. It's perfectly fine to argue with your boyfriend over his five nearly empty deodorants taking up space in YOUR bathroom. 
18. "Long, pink, amazing" has more than one meaning. Thanks Samantha for clearing that up.

Tinder, the ultimate confidence booster or breaker. Get it wrong and all your dreams could be swiped left in an instance. 


Don't be exposed to those dreaded lefties, improve your Tinder game with these ultimate do's and don'ts. 

Firstly, to take the perfect selfie: Invest in a selfie stick; some how they turn you from a 7 to a 10 real quick, chin downwards for the best angle, natural lighting for the perfect complexion, look into the camera; show those beautiful eyes girl! 

Don't do one of those attention seeker cleavage shots with a hint of chin...just no. Oh and don't cover one eye with your hair, you're a confident woman, not auditioning for The Grudge.

For the rest:

1. Don't have another girl in your first photo - nothing more devastating than a guy who's swiped right for the wrong face...awks.

2. Even worse, don't have another guy in your photo; this leaves a string of questions - Is he an ex? Is it her brother? Is that her f**k buddy? Is that her boyfriend? Are my biceps bigger?

3. No drunk photos, if Kate Moss can't pull it off - neither can you. 

4. Hobbies! If you passed the first selfie stage, show him you're interesting, fun and adventurous in your second photo. This is where he can quickly grasp common ground (if any).

5. The smiler: Always include a smiling photo! Would you date a mug shot Maggy? NAH

6. Your bio - keep it short & sweet. Don't do the whole Marilyn Monroe quote thing, you know she was a porn star right? And lastly, don't include your bra size, seriously, i've seen it happen before.

It's been an eventful week and once again, we've lined up some of this week's top viral videos to keep you up-to-date with just what's going down within the socialsphere!

Earlier this week we shared Cara Delevingne's super #awks interview on Good Day Sacramento. In today's weekly video roundup however, here's what's in store...

1) Kim Kardashian takes style inspo Audrey Hepburn/Marie Antoinette in a weird ad for Hype Energy Drink. If anyone can make pouring coloured, fizzy drinks down your throat fashionable to young girls everywhere, it's probably Kim K. 

2) Due to pressure and conspiracy theories that Sandra Bland had already died by the time her mugshot was taken, Waller County has released its footage of the booking process in which Sandra is seen alive and, we hope, well.

3) Chrissy Teigen teases hubby John Legend with her chicken butt. Enough said!

4) Tom Cruise goes up against Jimmy Kimmel in a lip sync battle to remember! Will lip sync battles soon become the new parlour game?

5) Men all say they think women should be treated with respect but if everybody started living by the words coming out of these concerned boyfriend's mouths in Cosmo's latest vid, wouldn't the world be a much nicer place?

6) Carnage a.k.a. Shah Faisal Shinwari jumps off Tower Bridge, is knocked unconscious upon hitting the water, then miraculously revives and swims towards shore. What a smart thing to do.

When Rihanna released her music video for Stay, she probably thought singing poignantly in the bath was the way to go. She couldn't have been more wrong.

Now, a different version of her music video is doing the rounds on the world wide web. With no music at all, sound effects are inserted at perfectly timed moments to show the star farting away in the tub.


We can't imagine RiRi will be too pleased once she lays eyes (or ears) on this but hey, she pretty much walked right into this one!

Scroll right to WATCH RiRi let rip in the tub and shop below for bath time treats from The Body Shop...

Remember when Kendall TOTALLY fluffed her lines @ The Billboard Awards?

She hit the big time in 2014, so it's only fitting she takes the number 14 spot too.
