As lawmakers take up forfeiture reform, local police say current safeguards are enough | News

As police reform continues to be a hot button issue, State Auditor Julie Blaha took to the Capitol this week to discuss the “big story in the small numbers” with legislators: forfeitures.

Princess Anne new ‘style icon’ after royal used as ‘muse’ in Italian fashion collection | Royal | News

Princess Anne’s “effortless, nonchalant style” has become the focus of fascination for fashion designers, according to commentators. This comes after an Italian brand confirmed that they had used the Princess Royal’s extended history of outfits as inspiration for their latest collection. Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the new unexpected “style icon”.

Ms Bowie told listeners: “My high this week has been the revelation that Princess Anne is a muse for the Serafini fashion house.

“We know that obviously, Diana is a style icon, but so is Anne.

“She’s all over the Pre-Fall 2021 mood board for this Italian fashion house called ‘Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini’, which I’m unfamiliar with.

“The collection even nods to Anne’s equestrian days, what she wore to Royal Ascot in the 80s, some of her evening wear.”
