The cat's eye sunnies shape is an ultimate classic - but this season it's getting major buzz in the fashion scene and it this week's Instacrush! You can always count on cat-eye sunglasses to turn a casual outfit into a glam moment. 


Those winged shades have been seen in all variations from exaggerated frames and sparkly stones to frameless bottom ones (take cues from the Illesteva Beyonce wore to the Made In America Music Festival. 

Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber are also behind this rockabilly 90's trend.

“Copy-cat” est un terme qui désigne les personnes qui copient. Ce terme devient de plus en plus entendu dans l’industrie de la mode. Pourtant les copycats sont aussi vieux que la mode elle-même ! 


Et oui, en 1903, Charles Frederick Worth (le pionnier de la mode) avait déjà commencé à coudre des étiquettes sur ses créations pour prouver leur authenticité. Coco Chanel avait aussi conscience de ce phénomène,  poursuivant même en justice Suzanne Laneil, qui avait été prise en possession de 48 dessins volés à plusieurs maisons de couture. 

Aujourd’hui les contre-façons ont créés un empire industriel ! Les entreprises comme Zara, ou H&M ont construit des multinationales grâce à ce marché. Le principe étant de copier des vêtements des maisons de couture à un prix de vente minime. Il faut aussi savoir que les copy cats existent au sein même de l'industrie du luxe ! Alors on se demande, ce système de copiage est-il dangereux pour l’industrie de la mode ou est-ce plutôt un système qui fait profiter tout le monde et qui rend la mode plus compétitive que jamais?

Aujourd’hui ‘la loyauté d’une marque’ n’existe plus vraiment. Les consommateurs mixent les produits luxueux avec des produits plus commerciaux. Les consommateurs sont plus envieux des produits “tendance” mais ils savent qu’ils ne porteront ces produits qu'une ou deux saisons. Investir dans une pièce rapidement démodée ce n’est pas forcement une bonne idée… Surtout quand ces pièces sont pratiquement identiques chez Saint Laurent et chez Zara ! 

Le problème pour les marques de luxe c’est que leurs idées deviennent moins spéciales, cela heurte forcement l’authenticité et le business de la marque en question. Par exemple, Narciso Rodriguez avait créé la robe de mariée de Carolyn Bessette Kennedy en 1996, il a ensuite vendu cette robe en 45 exemplaires, mais une marque a réussi à vendre la version plus bas de gamme en 80,000 copies.

Il faut aussi savoir que, pour qu’un produit soit légalement considéré comme “unique”, il lui faut 7 différences avec un autre produit similaire. Ces variations peuvent être aussi minimes que la taille d’un bouton, la couleur d'un vêtement (bleu foncé vs bleu marine) ou encore un revers en plus ou en moins.

Effectivement, cette norme agace forcément les maisons de luxe car leur image n’est alors pas mise en valeur comme souhaité. Mais la situation est encore plus dramatique pour les nouveaux designers. Premièrement les jeunes créateurs n’ont souvent pas beaucoup de revenus, mais surtout les consommateurs ne savent pas qu’ils achètent des copies. Les jeunes créateurs ont du mal à se créer une visibilité, donc les fans de mode achètent des produits qu’ils n’ont jamais vu avant sans savoir qu’ils ne sont pas 100% uniques. 

Alors, se battre contre une multinationale n’est souvent pas une option pour un designer qui commence sa carrière. C’est un cercle vicieux, les géants copient et les petits ne peuvent pas se démarquer ni se défendre. 

En revanche, certaines personnes croient que les copies de produits de luxe sont au contraire bénéfiques pour l’industrie de la mode. Contrairement aux marques spécialisées en technologie, la mode ne crée que très rarement de nouveaux produits innovants qui rendraient des produits plus vieux complément obsolètes et donc expulsés du marché. Effectivement, les consommateurs achètent par désire et non par nécessité. Ils achètent un vêtement pour une saison et la saison prochaine, ils achèteront un nouveau produit. 

Lorsqu’un produit est présenté sur un défilé luxe, le prix convient aux clients VIP qui peuvent se le permettre. Ces consommateurs sont des avant-gardistes ou des pionniers de la mode. Puis, quand le design est copié, le produit devient une tendance sur le marché de la consommation de masse. Ensuite, les produits cessent d’être “trendy” et ce phénomène devient donc un cycle qui permettrait à tous les consommateur de trouver leur place dans cette industrie et la rendrait donc très forte, grande et puissante. 

Qu’en pensez-vous? À votre avis, les copy cats détruisent-ils l’industrie de la mode, ou au contraire, la rendent-elle plus forte ?

La 74ème cérémonie des Golden Globes s’est déroulée cette nuit à Los Angeles. Et ce qu’on peut dire, c’est que la soirée a été riche en émotions ! 


Pour commencer, c’est le film La La Land qui est sorti grand gagnant de la cérémonie, remportant pas moins de 7 prix, dont celui de meilleur acteur dans une comédie pour Ryan Gosling et meilleure actrice dans une comédie pour Emma Stone. Parmi les récompensés, le film français Elle, qui repart avec le prix de meilleur film étranger et meilleure actrice dans un drame pour Isabelle Huppert

Côté télé, c’est la série The Night Manager qui raffle 3 prix pour ses acteurs (Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie et Olivia Colman). La série Netflix The Crown remporte 2 awards.

Meryl Streep a reçu le Cecil B. DeMille Awards, un titre honorifique pour sa carrière: l’actrice en profite pour délivrer un discours marquant, hommage à son amie Carry Fisher, s’enflammant également sur la diversité et l’avenir des USA, égratignant Trump au passage.

L’ancien Dr House, Hugh Laurie, n’hésite pas non plus à s’en prendre au nouveau président en recevant son award.

Brad Pitt reçoit un accueil chaleureux lorsqu’il monte sur scène pour présenter Moonlight. Rare sur les tapis rouges depuis l’annonce de son divorce, l’acteur peut compter sur ses amis d’Hollywood pour le soutenir !

En plus d’avoir gagné notre coeur et un Golden Globe, Ryan Gosling délivre un discours touchant (plaisantant d’abord sur sa ressemblance avec Ryan Reynolds) évoquant sa gratitude envers l’équipe de La La Land mais aussi envers sa femme, Eva Mendes. Il raconte que, pendant qu’il était en train de chanter et danser devant les caméras, elle élevait leur fille, était enceinte de la seconde et soutenait son frère dans sa bataille contre le cancer. “Si elle ne s’était pas occupée de tout ça pour que je puisse me concentrer sur cette experience, cela serait certainement quelqu’un d’autre à ma place ce soir.” 

En parlant de Ryan Reynolds, l’acteur a profité de la cérémonie pour embrasser Andrew Garfield (l’ex d’Emma Stone) à pleine bouche alors que Blake Lively s’esclaffe à ses côtés.

Breakups suck, and unfortunately we don't all posses Taylor Swift's talent of getting over someone by writing a really sassy song that makes millions. No, our version of "We Are Never Getting Back Together" is a drunken essay we type through tears and send to our ex- doesn't really have the same effect, does it? You're not alone though babes, here are 10 stages of a breakup us gals all go through...


1. The Denial Stage

You're still in shock, you manage to drag yourself to work and don't tell anyone for 24 hours because you're not quite sure if it really happened. Regardless of who ended it, there's still a time period where it hasn't sunk in. 

2. The Duvet Stage 

The duvet is you, you are the duvet. You lie in bed crying and not moving for two days, apart from to open the door for your pizza delivery and to defrost more ice-cream. You resemble a feral child who has been discovered after living with wolves for ten years. It's not pretty, but necessary. 

3. The Pep Talk Stage

Your friends arrive to get you out of your slump. They make you tell them what happened, whilst drinking four bottles of vino, and remind you what a bad ass independent woman you are. They then make you shower and put on clothes. Apparently a duvet doesn't count, who decides these things?!

4. The F*ck This Stage

After the pep talks from your nearest and dearest you realise that is happened for the best, and that there are many, many things you won't miss about said ex. Lets be honest, you weren't going to end up with this guy, and you also won't end up dying alone with your cats eating your face. 

5. The 'Out Out' Stage

This stage lasts a while, it's a blur of shots, cute outfits, and girls nights. You kiss a couple of guys, but aren't ready for anything more than a drunken snog just yet. But that's ok, because these nights out are reminding you that single is really fun, and that there are plenty of guys out there who are interested in you. 

6. The Social Media Cleanse Stage

By this stage you've realised that stalking their social media every day isn't helping or healthy. You block his number, unfriend and unfollow him. But, you also make all your profiles public to document how well you're doing. 

7. The Reinvent Yourself Stage

I don't know why women do this, but it's an integral part of breaking up with someone. You need a new hairstyle, some new clothes (re: everything he hated you in) and maybe a tattoo. You delve into work and finding yourself again- all this free time is actually really handy, who knew?!

8. The Dating App Stage

You download Tinder, Bumble and Happn. At first it seems like a very weird concept, but before you know it you're hooked. Every match feels like a little f*ck you to your ex. 

9. The Dating Stage

You take the plunge and go on a date with one of your Tinder matches. It's awful and you go home and cry, reminiscing about your ex. Your friends push you to get back out there, and begrudgingly, you do- you finally go on a date with that guy at work who's been asking you for months. It ends up being quite nice.

10. The Moving On Stage

It happens slowly, but one day you wake up and suddenly realise that you don't hurt anymore. You don't have that heaviness in your chest anymore, and you're genuinely excited by the prospect of finding love again.

Are you the resident single friend of the group? Always lumped on the end of group pics on your lonesome? Well, honey, you'll relate to these 10 very annoying "single friend" problems... 

1. Always The Third Wheel Your friend invites you for dinner or drinks, and you're super excited for a 1:1 catch up. Then you arrive and her BF Paul is sitting in your place. Bloody Paul. Then you spend the entire evening third wheeling on their 1:1 catch up. Awkward. 

2. Designated Photographer 

All your mates want cute 'candid' couple photos, and they act like being their personal photographer is part of the 'third wheel' job description. No, I do not want to take a photo of you and your boyfriend reenacting 'The Lady & The Tramp". FFS. 

3. Group Double Dates 

Your lovely gals always invite you on these group double dates, and you know that they're secretly hoping you'll decline. You always do. The only thing worse than 3rd wheeling is 9th wheeling. Ain't nobody got time for that, although actually, you do have time for that because you're single. 

4. Friends Live Vicariously Though Your Tinder 

Your mates are all smitten but also feel like they missed out on this new world of internet dating so decide that they have the right to 'play' on your tinder. This isn't a game people, Tinder is your single friend's only hope!! They all have a play, and then say at the end "That's fun but oh my god I'm glad I'm not single, it seems so much tougher nowadays. No offence". Offence taken. 

5. "You'll Find Someone" 

Firstly, what if I'm happy single and don't need no man? Secondly, what if I'm actually really bad at being a human and no one will ever date me because I act like a swamp creature? 

6. The Matchmaking 

Ok, we all know matchmaking is super fun, but sometimes your taken friends get carried away/exasperated and start setting you up with anything with a pulse. I'm sure Derek from IT is lovely, but I'd rather not date someone who has 3 kids practically the same age as me. Thanks though babes. 

 7. Judging You Over Dating 

They never approve of the men you do date, despite insisting constantly that they want you to find someone. Or they judge the fact that you go on about 4 dates a week. It's the effort that counts ok, leave us alone... 

8. Secretly Being Happy When They Fight With Their Partner 

We feel guilty, but also kinda happy, not because we want our friend to be heartbroken but just because we want a single friend who will come drinking with us again. 

9. Having Friends Who Are Only Your Friend When Single

You have a few friends that go off the grid as soon as they get in relationships but then come crawling back when it ends and they act like nothing has happened. You should really confront them, but all your other mates are in relationships and you can't afford to be picky atm. 

Ok, I'm off to go die alone with my cats now, laterz...

The new hashtag to take Twitter by a storm is #WhyIThinkImSingle and it's hilarious, tragic and oh so relatable. 


Gems like "Too ugly to date attractive people, too attractive to date ugly people", "cos I say 'uh oh spaghettios' every time something goes wrong" and  "I asked my cats why they think I'm single and then I realised it's probably because I ask my cats why I'm single". 

Scroll above for our top picks, so hilarious...

Girls nights out, they're stressful/fun/dramatic/messy without Halloween thrown in the mix. Halloween girls nights out are a ball park of their own- they're a hyper-girls night. Here are the inevitable stages...


1) "What The F*ck Are You Wearing" Call. 

This happens at around 4pm, when there's just enough time to sort out a costume. Your friendship group is a mixture of girls who have been planning their halloween outfits for six weeks, and those who always end up just going as cats. 

2. Costume Envy

Said Cat then turns up and gets upset because you all look great- a mixture of mermaids, unicorns and Harley Quinns. Whereas she has some ears, a black dress and shoddily drawn whiskers on. 

3. Costume Switch 

Cat girl ends up going as something even shitter due to last minuet panic- there's a lot of toilet roll involved to create a very makeshift mummy costume. Group effort. 

4. Face Painting 

Not the usually makeup station setup, Halloween nights out include a lot of fake blood and face paint. Someone will spill fake blood on the carpet. 

5. Contact Lenses 

Creepy contact lenses are a halloween necessity nowadays, the process of putting them in is v stressful. The mixture of vodka, shaky hands and screaming doesn't help. One girl plops them in, no trouble (she wears contacts). The rest of the girl gang end up with streaming eyes, one contact in and raised blood pressure. 

6. Social Media Photoshoot 

Any excuse for group pics, ammiright? You need these pictures, because once predrinks happen there will be absolutely no useable images. You delegate who posts what #squadghouls 

7. Predrinks 

You try and play drinking games, but all get too drunk and gossip- because it's way more fun. Someone throws up before the taxi arrives. Someone cries. Someone passes out. 

8. Taxi Ride

Poor, poor, poor taxi man. You make him turn up whatever Beyonce song is playing, and you all sing along- I say sing, it sounds more like hyenas being trampled. 

9. Love-Fest 

"No, babes, I love you more. Honestly, you are the shining sun in my life. My soulmate." *sob, sob, sob* *cuddles* *kisses* *laughing*. 

10. Club Queue 

You try and skip the queue, but your mate dressed in toilet roll isn't really helping. You stand and wait for half an hour- because it's f*cking halloween and the world and their dog is out. Everyone begins to slightly sober up, apart from your one friend who is bursting for the loo and ends up running down a street to go. Classy is a word not needed nor wanted on a GNO. 

11. Dancing & Shots

You finally get in, the red sea has parted and you all fight your way to the bar. Someone screams "TEQUILA" and before you know it you've all downed 5 shots and are grinding on each other on the dance floor. 

12. Smoking Area

You all go to the smoking area to recap the night thus far. Will she go back with her ex tonight? Why's she crying? Who let the little one out their sight? 

13. PIZZA

Pizza and cheesy chips time. You sit on the takeaway floor and between mouthfuls shout about how much fun you had. 

14. Taxi Hunt

There are no taxis. The food hasn't helped sober anyone up. 3 shoes, two lipsticks and 5 dignities have been lost on the search for a taxi. 

15. Fall Out

Someone is upset because they dressed up as a burrito and didn't pull. Someone else calls their ex and gets a group scolding. Everyone is sleepy and cold. Plus the fake blood has gone crusty and we no longer look like cute zombies, we now look like actual zombies.

16. Home Time

Everyone naps in the taxi, then all crash in the same bed. Everyone forgets to take their halloween contacts out, and someone brings a pizza into the bed. FFS.

Bored at work and in desperate need of a mental pick-me-up? From tips on determining your level of Facebook stalking to plenty of celebrity news (think Orlando Bloom's big paddle boarding reveal), Shopcade is here to amuse and inspire you - wherever you may be! 

If that happens to be at work, here are ways you can work smarter, not harder at getting away with browsing NSFW content without getting fired...

1) Do it on your phone, duh.  If you're in an environment where you're able to pretend reading an urgent message from a loved one (this works particularly well if you have children) or shove in a pair of earphones to appear like you're FaceTiming an ageing relative, you're all good to go!

2) Work in an office? Here are some keyboard shortcuts for hiding tabs and windows (assuming you've joined the rest of the world in using Chrome)...

PC - Close current tab (Ctrl + w or Ctrl + F4) Minimise current window (Alt + Space + n)
Mac - Close current tab or pop-up (Cmd + w) Minimise window (Cmd + Shift + w)

3) Can't get onto Facebook or any other site that's even remotely interesting? If your workplace has blocked access to all your favourite sites, check out Hide My Ass Proxy to reclaim the web!

4) Need to erase all traces of having wasted your employer's precious time and resources? Use Incognito Mode on Chrome - Ctrl + Shift + n on PC or Cmd + Shift + n on Mac! Depending on how sneaky your employer is (heh heh), they might have installed software on company computers/laptops to monitor your activity...in which case you're better off making an excuse to go outside and check your phone!

5) If you're convinced no-one in the office will have thought to install spyware on your computer, be assured that the majority of sites are now "https://" vs "http://" The "S" stands for "secure", which means your employer can't see what it is you've done/looked at/searched for on that particular site.

7) Perhaps the most important rule of all when browsing NSFW videos or posts at work is to maintain a neutral or serious facial expression at all times. This may be hard if you're staring at yet another Kardashian nude selfie, watching a video of cats flushing toilets, or scrolling through memes on Twitter but ultimately, what's more satisfying to you: getting away with being paid to kill time or being caught out by the boss man/lady? (Rhetorical.) 

8) If you're going to misbehave, make sure you misbehave with confidence. Like everyone between the ages of 12-18 knows, when being caught out, showing no surprise whatsoever can actually work in your favour. Acting like you're doing nothing wrong can potentially disarm your supervisor and convince them you're just doing what you were supposed to all along.

We often tell ourselves singledom is a blessing in disguise. While that’s 100% true, being single has its off-putting downsides too! How many times have you been harassed by your friends pestering you to give reasons for being single? How many times have you been told to change the way you do things so you’d get a boyfriend? Well, although you cannot change how people think, a better and the most ideal way to deal with this annoyance is by finding humour in all the unnecessary comments you have to face on daily basis. You ask how? Read on. 

“Hey, there’s this cute guy I know and he’s single too. You’d really like him!” 
Eerr, no thank you, I’d rather grow old with several cats. 

“You’re so pretty, I was thinking...why are you still single?”  
Em, thank you but hey, don’t you have anything better to think about? 

“Hey, my boyfriend and I are making a weekend trip, wanna come along?” 
Wait, what?! Are you showering me with pity? Do I look like third-wheel material? Go away! 

“My boyfriend is so amazing, he always knows how to pamper me!!!” 
Okay, seriously, can we talk about Pokemon Go instead? 

*Public display of affection* 
Eww, that’s gross, please get a room? 

“You know you’re single because you’re so uptight! If you change your habits…” 
Keep going on, I’ve muted you in my head. I can’t hear anything. I don’t want to hear anything. I’m deleting you. 

*Netflix and chill time!...* 
…means sitting in bed in comfy PJs watching your favourite movie with a bag of chips next to you. Pretty ideal! 

“Are you sure you don’t like girls???” 
Well, you’re dead to me. 

“You REALLY need to find someone!” 
You REALLY need to stop saying that every single day! 

“That guy in your DP, are you guys a thing?” 
Umm, have you heard of friendship? Maybe you should Google it! 

Yes, the struggle is real but it’s healthy to make a joke about it from time to time. However, we believe being single is awesome, mostly because you’re your own BFF and can have plenty inside jokes that will make you burst into a smile in the middle of the day. 

So, awesome single ladies, you deserve to pamper yourselves because no one else will. It’s why we have made a list of our favourite dresses that you can gift yourself. All the single ladies…
