5 TIMES WE REALLY WANTED EMMA WATSON’S HAIR – asos

Can’t get enough of Emma Watson? Ditto. From letting us relive our childhoods with Beauty and the Beast take two, to being perfectly outspoken in her role as activist and UN goodwill ambassador – she’s as dreamy as they come. And to top it all off, she’s recently been rocking certified modern-day princess hair that we simply can’t ignore. Here’s five looks to copy, pronto…

Curl, girl
If you were searching for the perfect ‘do for all your fancy RSVPs this year, then this EW hairstyle is it. Loose, undone tendrils at the front? Check. Pinned section at the back? Check, check. Now, just add some berry lippie and your big occasion outfit (talk about belle of the ball).

Party in the back
Yep, sometimes a straight-forward pony just won’t cut it. For that back-do that has all the BNO mileage, split hair into three sections before twisting into individual buns. Top tip: debut it right with a sassy cold-shoulder top.

Side to side
For low-maintenance girls, sometimes it feels only right to let your hair down and just be. The key is in freshly washed hair: blow-dry until it’s 90% done, and let the rest do its air-dry thing. Side part and keep make-up simple.

Braidy bunch
For an oh-so-pretty ‘do to take you anywhere, from brunch to big night out, it’s all about a simple braided crown, à la Emma. Side part hair and plait each side from the top, before fastening at the nape of the neck with hair pins. Spritz with hairspray and consider yourself sorted for the next 24 hours.

Goldilocks
Drum roll, please. And the award for the showstopper goes to… this divine updo feat. gold leaf blingage, Julius Caesar-styleStyle is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.. Pull loosely curled hair back and pin in sections, before fastening gold hair slides to random strands: think above the ears and leading towards the nape of the neck. All hail.

13 MATERNITY LOOKS THAT ARE A GIFT FOR MUMS-TO-BE EVERYWHERE – asos

Sure, there’s the teeny factor of a nine-month ticking time bomb, but when you’re pregnant there’s something else demanding immediate attention on a daily basis: your ever-expanding bump. From concealing it to full-on embracing it, these celebrity mums have some pro styling ideas for every phase of your bump.

Easy breezy
You’re not quite ready to let the world know there’s a bae on board, but your waist line has other ideas. In the first few weeks, make like Irina Shayk in comfortable fashion-led pieces like striped tracksuit trousers and PJ tops.

No biggie
The early days of pregnancy are nauseating enough without events being thrown into the mix. If you’ve got to pull it together for a big one, look for styles that don’t hug but still flatter – Marion Cotillard’s ruched jumper dress is a v good case in point. Add low-key hair and make-up, plus your go-to heels, and you’re one hot mama in the making.

Kinky boots
When the cat is well and truly out of the bag, it’s safe to transition from ‘nothing to see here’ clothes to body-hugging numbers. Look out for ribbed jumper dressesA dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). in particular, which expand as you do – and pull a Cheryl by wearing with your statement OTK boots. Coming out of the first trimester like…

Shoulder drama
On sunny days, put down the vest you’ve grown unhealthily attached to and opt for a Bardot neckline. Eva Chen’s cotton cold-shoulder shirt is super-flattering thanks to that bump-skimming empire line. Throw in a bunch of on-point accessories (we’re looking at you furry sliders), and you’ve got a look your non-PG friends would be proud of.

Jump to it
If there’s one thing your maternity wardrobe will thank you for, it’s a jumpsuit around the halfway point. It’s about now that you’ve out grown the first pair of maternity jeans you bought and you’re looking for a refresh. Mila Kunis’ front-pleat, wide-leg all-in-one is the ultimate in comfort dressing.

All the frills
Léa Seydoux: proof that a mini and heeled biker boots are legit maternity wear if ever you needed it. Don’t ditch the silhouettes you love, just find a new way to spin them. In Léa’s case, a peplum hem makes a mini feel less woah, and the frilled sleeves give a nod to your fave SS17 trend (sleeve deets = major).

Details, details
Bow down to the jersey dress (with added stretch, obviously). Adèle Exarchopoulos’s asymmetric hemline, plaited high pony, just-so make-up and heeled boots prove that you don’t have to leave your attention to detail at the door when you get pregnant.

New-school glmaour
Dreading the dress code? Resist the temptation to ‘RSVP: no’ when big events coincide with you being big. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Oscars dress was a schooling in elegant maternity occasionwear: look for thigh-high splits and textured bodices. You got this.

Print perfectionist
No amount of pattern is going to minimise how much your bump has ballooned out of nowhere, but you can be savvy with large and mini prints to create a distinct top and bottom half, like Amanda Seyfried.

Texture play
Lake Bell’s velvet polkadot dress with shoulder splits is the dream way to style out a baby shower/christening/wedding (insert any summer party from your iCal here). Look out for anything textured at this stage – it’s a subtle way to make your bump look a little smaller. If you’ve got to the point where heels are a no-go zone, switch out for girlie sliders.

Jog on
Whether you’ve lived in maternity leggings for the last nine months or they’ve only come out for trips to yoga, no matter, their comfort factor is of upmost importance. Make like Natalie Portman and look for space-dye styles which hug your bump, then pair with your freshest runners and mirror shades.

Take cover
A longline kimono (or dressing gown where needs must) is a solid buy from day one – going from cover-up to statement piece when you’re ready to pop. Ciara’s striped version (plus choker necklace and high top-knot) gives her standard maternity vest and wide trews an instant upgrade.

Out of this world
… alternatively, scrap it all and make like the queen you are and channel goddess of fertility Beyoncé, in a gilded headdress and sheer gown (backlit at all times, naturally). You do you.

Tell me about it, stud

Many people[who?] argue that wardrobes are different in use and style of closets, but they were created by the French to be used as a closet. The earliest wardrobe was a chest, and it was not until some degree of luxury was attained in regal palaces and the castles of powerful nobles that separate accommodation was provided for the apparel of the great. The name of wardrobe was then given to a room in which the wall-space was filled with closets and lockers, the drawer being a comparatively modern invention[citation needed]. From these cupboards and lockers the modern wardrobe, with its hanging spaces, sliding shelves and drawers, evolved slowly. by pairing with a mini, jersey logo tee, plus a cutesy cropped jacket.

THESE INNOVATIONS CAN CHANGE THE FUTURE OF FASHION – H&M

In a not-too-distant future, your shirt can be made of cow manure, your shoes of grape leather, and the color on your jeansJeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture. could come from the color of an older pair. And instead of oil, our nylon clothes could be produced with solar energy, and the garments you choose to recycle could be sewn with one digital thread that reveals their “ingredient list,” making sure that every last string can be re-used.

For the second year in a row, an expert panel (handpicked by the non-profit H&M Foundation) has selected the top five innovations from a pool of nearly 2,900, to split a one million euro grant. However, it’s not going to be an equal split, which is why the foundation wants your help to decide which innovations get most of it.
“In this second round of the Global Change Award, we received 2,885 innovative ideas from 130 countries, which is even more than last year. Cross-border challenges call for a cross-border approach. I am convinced that by bringing people from different industries with different backgrounds and perspectives together, we can make a fundamental shift in the fashion industry to protect both people and the planet,” says Karl-Johan Persson, board member of H&M Foundation and CEO of the H&M group.

Keep swiping (or scrolling) to find out more about the winning innovations, and head to globalchangeaward.com to vote for your favorite.

FROM MANURE…
…to haute couture! By extracting and using the valuable cellulose in cow manure, this innovation could make it possible to create a biodegradable textile from, well, bull shit.

DENIM-DYED DENIM
Recycled denim is already a great asset to the fashion industry. This innovation finds even more use for the fabric. By breaking down old denim into fine particles, it could be used as a coloring powder to dye new denim, or to make prints on other textiles.

SOLAR TEXTILES
Instead of using oil, this innovation suggests that we use solar power, plant waste and water to create decomposable nylon. And if this isn’t enough, the nylon also binds greenhouse gases into the material, contributing to a zero-emissions world.

CONTENT THREAD
By weaving a tiny RFID thread with a digitalized “ingredients list” into the garment, the recycling process will become much more efficient and less will go to waste, as it’s suddenly clear what materials the garment consists of.

GRAPE LEATHER
Using leftovers from wine production to produce fine vegetal leather is good news for animal welfare and eliminates the need for oil when making synthetic leather. The fact that the grape skins and stalks are used for something good, instead of combustion, is an extra plus.

The online vote is open from March 27 to April 2. The Global Change Award Ceremony takes place in Stockholm on April 5, where the allocation of the 1,000,000 euros will be made public. Read more and vote here.
