Priyanka Chopra has implored fashion and beauty brands to take action to reduce their carbon footprint.

The “Baywatch” actress – who was recently named an Ambassador for Positive Change by The British Fashion Council – is set to launch her own haircare brand, Anomaly, at budget superstore Target on February 1, and explained that she decided to create the products because she saw a “gap” in the market for a haircare brand that is both sustainable and affordable.

Priyanka recalled how growing up all of the best hair products were really expensive, while she insisted she’s always been conscious of how much she consumes.

She said: “I have a really important relationship with my hair.

“I remember when I used to go to buy shampoo as a 15, 16 year old, just about discovering my

Men’s Fashion Week Fall 2021 was inarguably about the clothes, with a toned-down, natural approach being the dominant trend when it came to hair and grooming. Whether in Milan or Paris, simplicity reigned supreme.

It can be fun when designers and stylists integrate daring makeup or inventive hairstyles, but they’re not always the easiest to translate into day-to-day life. With their emphasis on simplicity, the recent shows left us with looks that are inherently attainable, rather than simply aspirational.

Unkempt, tousled hair

It’s fitting that after a year of spending so much time cooped up at home — rolling out of bed and walking a few metres to a makeshift home office — unkempt bed-head would be all the rage. Of course, these looks were far from unkempt, meticulously placed and tousled just so. But the underlying message was clear: it’s OK to

Victoria Beckham’s fashion brand may not be profitable, but she got the respect she always wanted

So why has a woman with 28 million followers on Instagram and a fashion collection that has been admired by Anna Wintour and worn by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sienna Miller failed to break even? 

The pandemic was always going to be particularly brutal for a label we associate with sharp tailoring, tight dresses and high-end work-wear – and Victoria Beckham Beauty, which was launched in autumn 2019, was unfortunately timed. Focusing on make-up rather than skincare at a time when women have turned to expensive face creams and serum instead of lipsticks and foundations, it has ended up costing the brand more than it has made. 

But even before the coronavirus raised its head, brand VB was floundering: by the end of 2018, operating losses sat at £11.7 million, while sales fell 16 percent year on year to £35.1 million. Yes, 2019 was slightly kinder to Victoria Beckham

How Coco Chanel changed the course of women’s fashion

Written by Marianna Cerini

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers. A milliner by training, she moved beyond hats to become a rebel and a trailblazer of the fashion world, creating a new sartorial style that freed women from corsets and lace frills by offering them sailor shirts and wide-leg pants instead.

“Nothing is more beautiful than freedom of the body,” she once said, and her designs lived by these words: Chanel’s silhouettes were fluid and androgynous, her designs loose and — in the case of her iconic little black dress, or LBD — democratic. She wanted women to move and breathe in her clothes, just like men did in theirs. Her work was, in many ways, a form of female emancipation.

Sunday marks 50 years since Chanel’s death, aged 87, though her legacy endures. As well as revolutionizing how we dress, she helped form
