A post shared by EVIO Beauty + Skincare (@eviobeauty)

Female-founded Canadian beauty brand Evio’s latest Hemp & Peppermint Lip Serum does more than nourish lips. Alongside the launch, brand founder Brandi Leifso has initiated a letter campaign calling for Canadian domestic violence police unit funds to be reallocated towards underfunded support organizations. “Like many others, it wasn’t the police that helped me when I was experiencing an abusive relationship. It was the safe houses and domestic violence support organizations who took my fear seriously, provided me with a safety plan and helped me heal,” said Leifso in a statement. “The government needs to reallocate funds to organizations who are doing meaningful work on the ground and saving lives.” Those who order the Lip Serum — available in both a clear and tinted shade — … Read the rest

Getting Her Kicks: Artist Briony Douglas on Her Sneaker Collection

In recent years, visual artist Briony Douglas has not only gained a great amount of attention for her quirky and thought-provoking works but also grown her reputation as a serious sneaker collector. It’s an interest that started in her youth but truly jumped off through her involvement in a 2018 photo shoot that heralded a collaboration between Nike’s Jordan Brand and Vogue.

Since then, she has gone on to collect everything from Rick Owens’s infamous “Dunks” — so called due to their resemblance to a patented style by Nike (for which Owens received a cease-and-desist order, thereby making them a highly desired item for a sneakerhead) — to L.A.-based creative Melody Ehsani’s Wmns Air Jordan 1 Mid “Fearless” style.

“I spend a lot of time researching,” says Douglas. “And I get a lot of information from friends. There’s always somebody who knows when a drop is happening.” PHOTOGRAPHY BY

What’s the Deal With Ellie Kemper and a Racist Debutante Ball?

Ellie Kemper is known for the adorable girl-next-door she plays in basically all her roles — most notably as Kimmy in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Erin in The Office. When her name was recently trending on Twitter, some fans thought perhaps it meant they were getting a reboot or spinoff of their fave sitcom. But this is 2021, and nothing can be so simple. The actual reason Kemper was trending was because of an old, resurfaced photo of her as the “Queen of Love and Beauty” at St. Louis’s Veiled Prophet (VP) Ball, an organization known for its racist past and possible ties to the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan (KKK) group. *Sighs* Here’s what to know about this strange turn of events.

What exactly happened with Ellie Kemper?

It all started on May 31, when someone tweeted about the VP Ball in St. Louis, Missouri, calling it “a … Read the rest

Our 17 Favourite Looks From the 2021 BAFTA Television Awards

Did you get the memo that capital-G red carpet Glamour is back? In the case of the 2021 BAFTA Television awards, quite literally, too. Michaela Coel’s exquisite gown by London-based creative Maximilian Davis boasted bright red bell sleeves and eye-catching cut-outs on both sides of its silhouette. Coming or going, it was a breathtaking look, especially since Coel paired the piece with bold gold jewellery by Alighieri — another London label, helmed by Rosh Mahtani, who last year was the first jewellery designer to be given the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. And to keep the local love going, Coel — whose revolutionary show I May Destroy You won multiple awards including Leading Actress and Writer: Drama for Coel herself — brought along a glossy black version of Simone Rocha’s coveted Egg bag.

But that wasn’t the only glimpse of Rocha’s elegant designs on the recent BAFTA TV … Read the rest
