Burberry Aims To Be Climate Positive By 2040

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

The collection, titled Les Marins, takes on Gaultier’s signature maritime vibe while continuing to blur the lines of gender — an important keystone that’s been in place since the house’s inception in 1976.

Father’s Day is approaching and we have a few (dozen) suggestions on what to gift the dads (and dad-like figures) on your list.

Kaia Gerber Is Wired on Mushroom Coffee and Ready To Hit the Cottage

19-year-old model Kaia Gerber spent the last year and a half just like the rest of us: baking banana bread, experimenting with DIY specialty coffees (“I’ve gotten very into making my own mushroom coffee so I’m wired all day,” she says) and starting a book club. Unlike the rest of us, her bi-weekly book club is still going strong and features celebrity guest appearances. (In the club’s first meeting, Gerber and Normal People actors Daisy Edgar Jones and Paul Mescal discussed the Sally Rooney novel of the same name.)

“I never wanted to overstep in the literary community,” says Gerber, who’s an avid reader. “But I’m grateful to have been accepted into this world that I’ve always wanted to be a part of.” Gerber’s hobby caught the attention of her longtime collaborator, designer Marc Jacobs, who even donated masks to NYU Langone Health Centre in honour of the model’s book … Read the rest

Naomi Osaka Withdraws From the French Open To Focus On Her Mental Health

Tennis star Naomi Osaka announced on May 31 that she was withdrawing from the French Open, an annual tennis tournament held over two weeks in Paris, France, to focus on her mental health.

Osaka had announced last week that she would not be participating in any press conferences during the French Open (also called Roland-Garros) for mental health reasons. “I’ve often felt that people have no regard for athletes’ mental health and this rings very true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one,” she wrote in her statement, adding that she hoped any fines she was charged for refuisng to speak with the press would go to a mental health charity.

The 23-year-old athlete was hit with a $15,000 fine by the Grand Slam tournaments, for not speaking to the media after her first-round match on May 30. Osaka then took to Twitter to announce her withdrawal … Read the rest
