The European court has controversially authorised the ban of the headscarf, taking its first official stance ever on the issue.


The ruling comes after a receptionist was fired from her three year job at the company G4S in Belgium when she started wearing a headscarf to work. The woman claimed she suffered religious discrimination and took her case to the Belgian court who referred it to the European Court of Justice.

The European court ended up ruling in the company’s favour, claiming that the firm’s decision was justified because it amended workplace rules to forbid staff “from wearing any visible signs of their political, philosophical or religious beliefs”. The court further claimed that the company did not engage in discrimination because the company policy covered “any manifestation of such beliefs without distinction”.

The ban was still heavily criticised by many religious figures, sparking quite a lot of controversy due to the recently hotly debated issue of the integration of immigrant communities in Europe. The most extreme criticisms of the ban interpreted it as Europe openly rejecting the Muslim community.

It is very important to keep in mind that the ruling should not be mistaken as a general ban of the headscarf in Europe. Far from that, the court’s decision simply states that companies have the right to implement a ban of all symbols without exceptions.

Of course, the problem is that Islam is one of the few religions in which women wear such an overt symbol at all times (whether you support that or not is another point), so the risk is that companies start using this ban solely to reject Muslim employees, which would of course contribute to the Muslim population’s isolation.

The ban must also be put into context. In France and Austria for example, it can be understood, as the countries have already forbidden wearing any religious symbols in public places, including the burqa for example. 

However, the ban would be out of place here in the UK, home to arguably the most cosmopolitan city in the world, given our strongly ingrained values or tolerance and acceptance, and our belief that everyone should be free to express their political, religious and philosophical opinions freely. It is therefore a little worrying that the ban is implemented on such a general level, given the diversity of countries in the EU, even though we probably won’t feel its affect for too long because of Brexit…

If you thought Kate Moss would remain a model forever, you may have just been proven wrong. 


It seems the model has reached a milestone in her career and has transitioned from being a model to being an agent. 

In Vogue’s April Issue in which she finally spills the beans, Kate Moss said it seemed "like the natural thing to do”, as she wanted to take responsibility for her “choices as a model”. Plus, she know knows the business inside and out- who wouldn’t want Kate as their agent?? 

Moss is clearly moving on, and she even chose not to pose for the shoot inside the Vogue Issue about her, deciding to put pictures of two of her model protĂ©gĂ©s, Elfie Reigate and Louis Baines, instead. 

Is this the end of an era?

Vogue promises us a "diversity issue", they give us Karlie Kloss dressed as a Geisha. Karlie isn't Japanese. She also isn't under represented, considering she's one of the highest earning supermodels in the world. Just this week Karlie confused Destiny's Child and TLC. We didn't think it could get worse, but it did. 


In the shoot her face appears to be whitened, and her hair is done in the traditional Shimada style. Did we get stuck in a time warp? Or is this actually happening? In 2017!

Karlie knows better, Vogue knows better, yet here we are again. Vogue have culturally appropriated a hundred times, and this isn't Karlie's first time at the rodeo. Remember in 2012 when she strutted down the catwalk in a Native American headdress? Stay classy, guys. 

She has set up a coding school, she's is a vocal feminist and has all the makings of a role model. She's smart as hell, yet continues to make such stupid mistakes. Why? She's in a position to say 'no' and turn down shoots that aren't right for her, but does she? No. 

Vogue is a bible for us fashion-lovers, but that doesn't mean they should get a haul pass when it comes to cultural appropriation. There are hundreds of beautiful Japanese models, and Vogue could have had their pick- do better. Please, just do better.

Barack Obama gave his farewell speech last night in Chicago last night, the city which launched his political career. 


The speech was full of hope, but also of warning- that racism and inequality is still rife, stating "we are not where we need to be".  Continuing "If every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hardworking white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclave". 

Obama continued "If we decline to invest in the children of immigrants, just because they don't look like us, we diminish the prospects of our own children - because those brown kids will represent a larger share of America's work force". 

The President also shared some nostalgic sentiments, calling back to his 2008 campaign slogan of "Yes, we can", adding "Yes, we did". 

Obama and the crowd dabbed their eyes when he called his wife, Michelle "my best friend", and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr "a brother". 

See the best celebrity reactions in the gallery above, and watch the full speech...

Our influencer for the week is the well-known stylist Prayag Menon (Insta handle: @prayagm_v). Prayag’s foray into the industry was incidental when he began styling shoots on his own at home, as an outlet for creative exploration. Completely self-taught and with no formal training, Prayag draws inspiration from his perspective on lifestyle, aspiration and the people he interacts with. His work resonates a sense of minimalism and timelessness. Read on to know more about him. 


1) Being a commercial pilot, how did you get into styling? 
A) I was always interested in fashion. Though the leap from pilot to stylist was a happy accident! My partner (photographer Porus Vimadalal) who’d recently entered the industry at the time was to collaborate on a test shoot with a stylist, but she had to cancel a day prior due to unforeseen circumstances; and I offered to jump in to style the shoot. I remember everyone really liked the shoot when it was out, and subsequent to that Porus encouraged me to start styling. I also started getting offers to work on other shoots and there was no looking back since. I am completely self-taught and have learnt consistently from each shoot I’ve worked on. 

2) What’s your personal style all about? 
A) Clean and restrained mostly. I like incorporating a sense of balance in terms of colours and silhouette. 

3) Do you remember your first fashion shoot? Tell us more about it. 
A) It was in the summer of 2013. We worked with some beautiful Roberto Cavalli gowns that a friend had recently acquired. The model was the beautiful Rasika Navare; now one of my closest friends. We shot a series of pictures in a studio and I still have that shoot in my portfolio; it's classic and beautiful. 

4) Who are the photographers you love working with and why? 
A) My partner Porus Vimadalal is definitely someone I love working with the most. I have learnt a great deal from him ever since I got into fashion. We have grown together in the industry and our aesthetics are completely aligned, which makes every shoot experience with him seamless and wonderful. 

5) What are some of the biggest challenges that you face as a stylist? 
A) One of the biggest challenges is dealing with commercial clients and a set brief which is not always familiar to your aesthetic. I have learnt from experience that it is necessary to stand by your opinion and choose how much you want to budge. It's fine to meet someone half way, but provided its mutual. 

6) What are some of the things you do to get inspired for a concept shoot? 
A) My work is straightforward in terms of fashion being the focal point. Inspiration arrives via many mediums; it could be a story I read somewhere, or someone I meet, or just my imagination. I then pick a trend which appeals to me and add it to connect the story. Conceptualisation and ideation are an organic process for me, I don't spend time consciously researching/studying or following a particular method. 

7) What are you currently working on? 
A) To name a few projects; I have a fashion editorial that is out in this month’s issue of ELLE India. I have also styled Verve Magazine's February cover story, and then I've worked on Miuniku's SS17 lookbook along with some more exciting projects releasing over the next few months. 

8) What would be a dream collaboration for you? 
A) I'd like to work with Marion Cotillard. 

9) What or who has greatly influenced your work and how? 
A) The women I've met in my life have played a huge role in the development of my work. These aren't necessarily women who are in the fashion industry; they come from diverse backgrounds. My relationships with them influenced and heightened my love for understated elegance, the idea of a lifestyle that is more cultivated and refined, not ostentatious. Through my work, I like depicting women as assertive and effortless; attributes inspired from the women in my life - independent and fearless, who live/have lived life on their own terms, and who make their own life choices. 

10) What’s the best thing about being a stylist? 
A) For me; the best thing is how work doesn't feel like work. It is something I truly enjoy, and never tire of. 

11) Favorite fall trend you can’t seem to get over? 
A) Velvet! 

12) What advice would you give to a young stylist who is just starting out? 
A) Start easy, explore different sensibilities before you settle into what your comfort zone is. It's totally okay to make mistakes and learn from them. It’s important to constantly seek inspiration in what’s around you. The most important pearl of wisdom I was imparted with, and that I'd like to share is: Do not seek approval from others. Take constructive advice but in the end just do what you really believe in. Your style should be an extension of who you are as a person.

Winter can leave your skin feeling dry and dreary, which isn't a cute look on anybody. And of course, good skincare doesn't come cheap. But if you want simple skincare solutions without making a big dent in your wallet, we're got them right here. DIY skincare is easy to make, easy to store, and easy on the spending! Here's some ideas for ya - 


a) Olive oil and sugar scrub: The lack of humidity in the air can dry out your skin, and the only way to combat this issue is with regular exfoliation. Mix 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of organic honey, and 1/2 a cup of organic sugar in a little container, and stir together until you are left with a grainy paste. Scrub the paste onto your face and your body in large circular motions for about 2 minutes, and leave it to settle for a bit before washing it off. Try this once or twice a week, and your skin will be moisturised and glowing from within! 

b) Aloe vera moisturiser: Your skin might need some extra help with keeping itself moisturised this time of year, and we have an easy DIY moisturiser that will heal your skin from within. In a small glass jar, put in 2 tablespoons of drinkable aloe vera gel, 3 drops of jojoba oil, 6 drops of lavender oil, and 1/2 a teaspoon of vegetable glycerin. Shake it super well before each use, and apply it to a slightly damp skin. Once absorbed, your skin will feel supple AF, believe it! 

c) Banana hair mask: Let's not forget, the colder weather can impact your hair too! Alongside the usual shampooing and conditioning, your hair might need a little extra TLC this time of year. You can achieve this by combining 2 mashed bananas with 1/2 a cup of coconut milk and a teaspoon of honey. Apply the mixture to your hair and let it settle for about 15 minutes. Rinse, and find your hair revitalised and ready to go!

Bella Hadid has just graced the cover of Paper Magazine's latest issue entitled 'outspoken'. And we haven't been this obsessed with a shoot in a long time. She looks INSANE. 


In the interview she reveals that her Victoria's Secret debut was a surprise "I was really surprised, but definitely excited. I tried last year to be cast in the show, I think everything happens for a reason".

Bella is known for her hypnotic gaze, she commented on this saying "people say that I don't smile, or that I don't have a personality". These photos definitely put such criticism to bed!

Time Magazine just named Trump their 'Person of the Year', don't spit out your tea, this isn't a joke. The article, which you can read here, is very well written by Michael Scherer, and you almost find yourself understanding his point- but then it dawned on me, the main reason this article is palatable is because Trump's voice is barely heard within it. Which is odd, for a piece which is all about him. But no, instead what you can hear is logic, statistics, ideology and philosophy- with the odd quote from the President Elect thrown in for good measure.

It's easy to make something sound plausible or even positive when it's dressed up enough, statistics of unemployment and the Obama administration's failings try and persuade you that Trump's election is understandable. 

Scherer writes that Trump's campaign was "not a campaign about the effects of tariffs on the price of batteries or basketball shoes. He spoke only of winning and losing, us and them, the strong and the weak. Trump is a student of the tabloids, a master of television. He had moonlighted as a professional wrestler. He knew how to win the crowd. First he needed to define the bad guys. Then he needed to knock them over". 

This statement is true- Trump did play the media into his hand, he uses sensationalist language to win support, but this isn't the issue. Yes, it makes people feel defeated that such showmanship can win over actual merit, but the problem lies more in how and who Trump defines as 'the bad guys'. How he gets people to agree with him is a lesser issue, it's what he's trying to get them to agree with that is scary for a lot of Americans, particularly the minorities. 

Time magazine understand this fear, and the validity of this fear that many hold. But they also understand why Clinton's campaign, and its want to condemn this political darkness, was its biggest downfall. "By seeking to condemn the dark side of politics, Clinton's campaign may have accidentally validated it. By believing in the myth that Obama's election represented a permanent shift for the nation, they proved it was ephemeral. In the end, Trump revealed in these denunciations, which helped him market to his core supporters his determination to smash the existing elite". 

The article finishes on a note of uncertainty "the truth is no one really knows what is going to happen, up to and including the occupants of Trump Tower. 'It's a very exciting time. It's been an amazing time' Trump says, as the country still tries to come to terms with what he accomplished. 'Hopefully we can take some of the drama out'." 

This drama is unlikely to die down, because it was Trump who built his campaign on drama and won because of it. The phrase "you made your bed now sleep in it" springs to mind- because this climate he's created and egged on, where "white supremacists throw out Nazi salutes in Washington meeting halls for their President-elect" is now his mess to run. 

Scherer finishes with this line "It's an America of renewed hope and paralysing fear, a country few expected less than a year ago. Because of Donald John Trump, whatever happens next, it will never be like it was before".

On the surface this piece makes me angry, but when you reach the end it feels comforting- Trump is our person of the year, whether we like it or not, because he's the new president-elect of America. This is the truth, no matter how uncomfortable. 

Time Magazine naming Trump their 'Person of the Year' is apt. It's sensationalised, click-bait and misleading- just like Trump's political tactics.

Tom Hardy, our ba(n)e and #MCM, has just graced another cover for Esquire. And the shoot gives us all the feelings. Just look at those tattoos and that grin! 


In the interview he revealed that after losing a bet with Leonardo DiCaprio aka his Revenant co-star, he'll get the words "Leo knows everything" tattooed. Adding that "I haven't got it yet. It sucks. He wrote in this really sh*tty handwriting. I was like 'ok, I'll get it done, but you have to write it properly'." 

The issue is out tomorrow, so go get your hands on it, but until then see the super hot images above...

It's official. After weeks of media speculation, Prince Harry has officially confirmed he is in a relationship with Suits star Meghan Markle. In an official statement released by Kensington Palace on its Twitter account this morning, Prince Harry has denounced the "racial undertones" of coverage by the British press. 

Scroll through our gallery above to view the official statement as it appears on the Kensington Palace Twitter account or scroll below to read it fully...

8th November, 2016

A Statement by the Communications Secretary to Prince Harry

Since he was young, Prince Harry has been very aware of the warmth that has been extended to him by members of the public. He feels lucky to have so many people supporting him and knows what a fortunate and privileged life he leads. 

He is also aware that there is significant curiosity about his private life. He has never been comfortable with this, but he has tried to develop a thick skin about the level of media interest that comes with it. He has rarely taken formal action on the very regular publication of fictional stories that are written about him and he has worked hard to develop a professional relationship with the media, focused on his work and the issues he cares about.

But the past week has seen a line crossed. His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public - the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments. Some of it has been hidden from the public - the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry into her home and the calls to the police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life. 

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 will have 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. 

He has asked for this statement to be issued in the hopes that those in the press who have been driving this story can pause and reflect before any further damage is done. He knows that it is unusual to issue a statement like this, but hopes the fair-minded people will understand why he has felt it necessary to speak publicly.
