Why wearing vintage is the ultimate red carpet flex – as demonstrated at the Met Gala 2024

Why wearing vintage is the ultimate red carpet flex – as demonstrated at the Met Gala 2024

[ad_1] It was always going to be a great night for vintage fashion with the theme of the Met Gala this year being “The Garden of Time”, inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story of the same name. It also marked the opening of the Costume Institution’s spring 2024 exhibit, entitled Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion. Open to the public this Friday, the exhibition in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art centres around 250 garments and accessories that span over four decades of history, making them too delicate and fragile to ever be worn again. So it came as no surprise that many of fashion’s major houses decided to play on this theme, using both vintage and vintage-inspired creations, as well as upcycled and archival textiles, to dress some of our favourite A-listers on what has become fashion’s most revered night. First up, all eyes were on Gala co-chair and actress of the moment, Zendaya, who stole the show with not one, but two incredible creations by John Galliano. Having taken a hiatus from the Met Gala …

Eurovision Bosses Rebuke Guest Singer For Wearing Palestinian Garment During Performance

[ad_1] Eurovision bosses have spoken out after guest singer Eric Saade incorporated a traditional Palestinian garment into his semi-final stage outfit. Before this year’s acts each sang for the first time on Tuesday night, the semi-final got underway with a medley of old Eurovision hits performed by finalists including Eric, Eleni Foureira and Chanel. While performing his hit Popular, the Swedish singer – who is of Palestinian descent – was seen sporting a keffiyeh wrapped around his wrist. Following Eric’s performance, a spokesperson for the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which organises Eurovision, rebuked the singer for what they described as a “compromise” of the “non-political nature of the event”. “The Eurovision Song Contest is a live TV show,” they said (via ITV News). “All performers are made aware of the rules of the contest, and we regret that Eric Saade chose to compromise the non-political nature of the event.” Posting on his Instagram story after the semi-final, Eric wrote: “Reminder – it’s only love.” Referencing this year’s Eurovision slogan, he added: “United By Music it …

Doja Cat Shops for Diamonds While Wearing Bed Sheet Look and Thong, Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction

[ad_1] Doja Cat seems to be taking the “Sleeping Beauties” theme of this week’s 2024 Met Gala very seriously.  The 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Amala Raina Zandile Dlamini, shared photos and video of herself and fashion designer Guram Gvasalia shopping for jewelry ahead of the annual fashion event.  In one clip, Doja Cat is holding what appears to be a white bedsheet around her with black Christian Louboutin heels. She drops one part of the sheet, exposing a black G-string thong.  In one photo, Doja Cat hugs Gvasalia, showing off a diamond teardrop necklace hanging on her bare back.  It appears that the bedsheet look is actually a dress designed by the fashion label Vetements, as one of the photo features a tag from the brand attached to the white fabric.  Doja Cat even wore the look out on the rainy New York streets, sharing photos of herself and Gvasalia walking out of the store as assistants covered them with umbrellas.  On Sunday night, Doja Cat and Gvasalia were spotted attending Anna Wintour’s …

Why are pro-Palestinian US student protesters wearing masks on campus? | US campus protests

Why are pro-Palestinian US student protesters wearing masks on campus? | US campus protests

[ad_1] As demonstrations over the war in Gaza have surged on campuses, around cities and in offices across the US in recent weeks, a visible tension has emerged between the desire for public protest and a fear of professional reprisals. On the Columbia University campus, where the latest spike in protests began on 17 April, demonstrators have worn masks and used blankets to block counter-protesters from filming students. Protesters at a tent encampment at the University of Michigan handed out masks upon entry, and students there refused to give reporters their full names in case the school took punitive action against them. At Harvard, the Palestine Solidarity Committee told the Guardian it had suspended doing press interviews out of regard for student safety. Concerns over retaliation and harassment have permeated the protests, as an intense and organized effort to bring down personal and professional repercussions on demonstrators has played out online. Counter-protesters and pro-Israel activist groups have attempted to post demonstrators’ faces and personal information to intimidate them, an act known as doxing, and demanded …

Here’s Why Simon Cowell Is Wearing Those Red Glasses On Britain’s Got Talent

Here’s Why Simon Cowell Is Wearing Those Red Glasses On Britain’s Got Talent

[ad_1] Britain’s Got Talent kicked off its 17th (!!!) series at the weekend, with all of the usual unique tricks, emotional performances and clumsily-shoehorned-in Greatest Showman references we’ve come to expect from the long-running variety show. However, the series did feature one small surprise – Simon Cowell’s new eyewear. Throughout the first episode of the new season, the TV mogul was seen sporting a pair of tinted red sunglasses while on the judging panel. Far from being an assertion of his diva-dom, Simon wrote on Instagram before the series got underway that he’s taken to wearing the glasses for medical reasons. “I just found out, according to the internet, I have a ‘mystery illness’,” he wrote on Instagram back in February, in response to speculation about his health. “For anyone concerned, I missed two auditions at the end of one day, two weeks ago, because I do get migraines after long days in the filming lights.” “This is why I wear these glasses!” he added. Simon also told The Sun last week: “The red glasses …

Wearing a bra to sleep: Where to find bras you can sleep comfortably in all night

Wearing a bra to sleep: Where to find bras you can sleep comfortably in all night

[ad_1] American actress Halle Berry once said in an interview with InStyle magazine: “If you don’t want your boobs to hit your knees by the time you’re 30, always wear a bra, even to bed.” She’s been doing so since she was 16.  Of course, whether a woman wears a bra when she sleeps is a personal choice. Some women find it a hassle – why bother when you can let loose all night?  I used to be one of those women. But as I entered my third trimester of pregnancy and my breasts grew, I started needing more support. That was when I discovered the benefits of wearing a bra to bed – and yes, they go beyond Berry’s belief that it prevents sagging. Dr Bertha Woon, a general and breast surgeon at Gleneagles Hospital and the founder of Bertha Woon General & Breast Surgery, said sleeping with a bra on can provide comfortable support, facilitate better sleep by keeping the breasts together, and offer protection for the nipples throughout the night. For nursing …

Mom Wearing Cardigan & Jeans Gets Dress Coded By A Librarian At Story Time

Mom Wearing Cardigan & Jeans Gets Dress Coded By A Librarian At Story Time

[ad_1] A mom revealed that she was dress-coded in the most unexpected place for wearing what she believed was an entirely normal outfit. In a TikTok video, Hilary Flips, a stay-at-home mother of two, shared that she was confronted while at the library with her kids. She was dress-coded for wearing a cardigan and jeans by the librarian during storytime. “I just got dress-coded at our local library at baby storytime, and this is what happened,” Flips began at the start of her video while showing off the simple outfit that she’d worn — a slightly cropped sweater from the teenage section of Target, light wash mom jeans, and a shirt underneath her cardigan. Nothing about her outfit screamed inappropriate. Flips pointed out that she felt relatively confident about the entire look, especially since it was a step up from her usual attire of leggings, a sweatshirt, and a T-shirt.  RELATED: Mom Responds To Criticism For Buying Her Daughter A ‘Revealing’ Homecoming Dress – ‘Please Don’t Let Her Wear This’ While at the library, she was running after her …

What are British athletes wearing?

What are British athletes wearing?

[ad_1] Livvy Breen, a Paralympic medallist in the sprint relay and long jump, said: “I love the new kit, especially the pops of colour and what they represent – it feels really fresh”. British Olympian Katherine Merry, who won bronze in the 400m at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, told The Telegraph: “I like it, they have definitely gone for a classic retro look and kept things simple. ”If the athletes feel good it can only help with their mindset, but ultimately they are there to compete and the sign of a good design is if you don’t notice what you are wearing.    “I don’t actually remember the full design of the Team GB kit we wore in Sydney,  but I do remember the feeling of winning a bronze medal.” The BOA has separately collaborated with the Bath-based design company Thisaway on their new fan merchandise. Flags, bunting and water bottles were launched last June in a different colour scheme and provoked criticism following the outrage over the changed St George’s Cross flag on the …
