5 Low-Maintenance Hairstyles To See You Through Until Salons Reopen

While we look forward to hair salons reopening on 12th April, pretty much all of us are trying our best to conceal split ends, dry lengths and maybe even DIY hair colour mishaps. Our trusty claw clips have come in handy to hide a multitude of hair sins and have also taken the chore out of styling but frankly, we’re a bit bored of them. In other words, we’re in need of some serious hair inspiration. No one understands effortlessly glamorous hair quite like British hairstylist and Hollywood favourite, Chris Appleton. His famous clients include J.Lo, Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa, and chic, uncomplicated styles are his forte. We recently sat down with the pro himself, who talked us through five quick and easy hair looks to try during the last weeks of lockdown. The best part?

Dior AW21 RTW Paris Fashion Week Show Review

Fashion loves a fairy tale. Usually, it’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ (very on-brand for origin stories of heritage houses) followed by ‘Happily Ever After’, the transformative moment when a protagonist becomes a princess. Maria Grazia Chiuri is a designer interested in filling in the blank space between those two lines, reframing the narrative of women and their dreams, desires and art.

MGC, after all, has made feminism her bestselling accessory, working with women artists ever since she joined the fashion house five years ago.

In Paris, Fashion Is Ready for Reinvention | BoF Professional, Opinion

Fashion is alive and kicking. Sales may still be struggling, especially in Europe, but the regenerative powers of fashion were on display at the Paris men’s fashion week which closed on Sunday. Despite being digital, it was an energising season — uplifting, in particular, because designers were not stuck in the mud of pandemic thinking, pandemic dressing. On the contrary, they took aim at the status quo and went boom. Save for a few decadent and melancholic outings, Paris skilfully ditched the dress-for-home mindset. No pyjamas, no robes as outerwear. The offerings, instead, were about fashion with a capital F, bold and unapologetic.

“Saying we will all be on the sofa six months from now would be a massive defeat — and honestly quite a bad, lazy idea,” said Jonathan Anderson at the beginning of the week, reflecting on the fashion-as-fun message — complete with primitive, Flintstones-hued furs and

Demi Moore can officially add runway model to her resume after appearing on the Fendi catwalk.

The 58-year-old was just seen joining the flock of celebrities and supermodels who made their way to France for Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, alongside her daughter Scout Willis. Still, nobody could have anticipated that Moore would be the show opener for Kim Jones’ debut collection for the Italian brand.

Moore — an actress, producer and mother-of-three — stole the show in a revealing tuxedo-style top paired with loose-fitting trousers. She also wore a pair of statement earrings that hung well past her shoulders. Although her presence on the runway was a surprise, it wasn’t the first time that Moore has strutted her stuff. In fact,
