Topless Lottie Moss Uses This Season’s Must-Have Slogan Sunhat To Conceal Her Modesty

Lottie Moss is making the most of this summer’s slogan sunhat trend.

Celebrities such as Vanessa Hudgens and Reese Witherspoon quickly jumped on the rising fashion trend last month, and now Kate Moss’ half-sister is sportin’ one too – but in a different way.

Posing on the beach with her friend Made In Chelsea star Frankie Gaff, the 19-year-old model used the hat to conceal her modesty during an impromptu shoot on a sunlounger.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday 22 June, the model posted a snap of the sunhat covering her chest, saying:

“We are topless – shhh.”

Whether it’s personalised with your name or simply telling the world you’re ‘just chillin’ so ‘do not disturb’, saying how you feel on a sunhat while catching some rays is what it’s all about this season.

Pizza Bath Bombs Have Arrived, And Tub-Time Will Never Be The Same Again

When two great things come together they make: a pizza bath bomb.

A California-based bath bomb shop on Etsy, has created a bath bomb that looks (and smells) exactly like pizza.

Priced at £5.72, the hand-painted bath bomb was created by Bathesda Boutique.

Taking to Instagram, the creator shared an amazing demo of bath time in action.

And social media users can’t get enough.

“This is epic,” one commented.

“My prayers have been answered. My two favourite loves combined!,” another posted.

With one user making a very valid point:

“That’s awesome, but I’m not sure I’d want to smell like pizza,” they wrote.

Luckily, Bathesda Boutique offers an array of scents to pick from.

British Vogue Editor Alexandra Schulman Admits There Was One Cover Star She Couldn’t Secure

Alexandra Schulman has admitted during an interview on Good Morning Britain that there was one cover star she wishes she had secured: The Queen.

As the former editor-in-chief prepares to step down after 25 years at the helm of British Vogue, she discussed how she’d tried several times to convince the Queen to pose for the fashion title.

When asked by GMB TV presenter Susanna Reid, on Thursday 22 June, if there was a cover star she regrets not getting for Vogue, Shulman replied:

″Yeah, the Queen. I really wanted the Queen.”

Reid’s co-host Ben Shephard then asked:

“Did you ever try?”

And Shulman replied: “Yes, and she wouldn’t do it. I tried several times actually, over 25 years.”

In an official statement, Shulman revealed her reasons for leaving her esteemed position at the fashion publication:

“It has been very hard to find a rational reason to leave what is unquestionably a fascinating and rewarding role,” she said.

“But last autumn I realised that I very much wanted to experience a different life and look forward to a future separate to Vogue.”

Edward Enninful will take over as editor-in-chief in August.

This Man Was Sent Home From Work For Wearing Shorts, So He Returned Wearing A Pink Dress

Joey Barge was sent home from work for breaking the dress code by wearing shorts, so he returned wearing a pink dress instead.

Barge, a call centre worker from Buckinghamshire, turned up to work on Monday 19 June wearing a pair of tailored navy blue shorts and he says he was swiftly told to go home and change.

Opting to wear shorts due to the current hot weather, the 20-year-old deemed the dress code to be rather sexist.

Taking to Twitter, Barge wrote:

“If women can wear skirts/dresses at work, can I wear smart shorts like so?”

Barge then decided to protest his company’s dress code while also keeping cool, by wearing a pink dress instead.

Social media users backed Barge by tweeting their agreement at the unfair dress code.

They sent you home? You aren’t customer facing and it was still a smart outfit.

— Harvey (@HR98__) June 20, 2017

You ABSOLUTE hero Joey!!!!!!

— Mary Harris (@maryharristw) June 21, 2017

Men should always be allowed to wear shorts like women can wear skirts and dresses… equality

What if you wear a kilt?

— Val Cholet (@ValVal108) June 21, 2017

Good for you Joey!

— ANDREW WONNACOTT (@777acjw) June 20, 2017

Rather than being sent home, Barge was met with an email stating that ‘3/4 shorts’ would now be acceptable in the office due to the ‘extremely warm temperatures’ – but they must be ‘black, navy or beige’.

Queen’s Speech 2017: People Think The Queen’s Outfit Was Giving Us A Message About The EU

The Queen is expected to remain apolitical at all times – and has been an absolute pro at this throughout her 64-year reign.

But while delivering her annual speech on Wednesday, some suggested that she might in fact have been making a statement about the European Union.

A number of people on social media pointed out that her outfit, a cornflower blue, with matching blue hat featuring flowers with yellow centres, actually bore some resemblance to the EU flag…

Maybe it was a secret signal, maybe Her Majesty is just a total fashionista – alas we’ll probably never know.

The monarch did a swift outfit change following the engagement at Parliament.

She appeared at the second day of Ascot in a banana yellow ensemble, suggesting her earlier outfit was chosen specifically for the occasion.

There was been some speculation over the Queen’s views on Brexit after a row exploded in March when The Sun published a story claiming claiming the Queen “backs” Britain leaving the EU.

Buckingham Palace denied the story and complained to Ipso.

The press watchdog went on to rule that it was inaccurate and “significantly misleading”.

The Rupert Murdoch-owned paper had quoted a “senior source” as saying that people who heard their conversation “were left in no doubt at all about the Queen’s views on European integration”.

Ashley Graham In Tears After Directing Lingerie Shoot, Saying Body Positivity Is Not Just ‘A Fad’

Ashley Graham was left in tears after she directed four women who are insecure about their bodies in their first lingerie photoshoot.

The model helped each of the women feel confident on set, so they felt able to remove their robes and star in some stunning photos.

Graham was brought to tears after hearing each of the women’s stories, saying they were proof body positivity is more than a “trend”.

“I did not think I was going to cry today, there’s an emotion just rushing through me,” she said, her voice breaking.

“People think that body image and the body revolution is just a fad but it’s not. It goes from big girls to little girls. It goes from Spanish girls to black girls. It goes from white girls to young girls. It’s everybody in between.

“If we keep having this conversation, if we keep talking about the things that society has said are ‘ugly’ and the things we don’t see in media, that is what is going to change. That’s how we make a statement and rule out all the things that are here right now and make a new normal.”

Graham met the four women at the start of the shoot – Karolena, Anastasia, Alyssa and Kaitlyn – and listened as each of them spoke about their relationship with their body.

At the start of the shoot, the model revealed she feels insecure about her “side butt”, so she pulled up her underwear as high as possible to put the area on show and help the other women feel at ease.

“What I had to get used to [about being photographed] was having people point out to me what didn’t look good, because I didn’t notice certain things until people pointed them out to me,” she said.

“Loving who you are but then having someone say ‘we need to retouch that’, that is what’s wrong with society. We’re not seeing or talking about insecurities that women go through, but we’re shining a light on perfection.”

Graham was particularly moved after meeting Alyssa, a woman who is recovering from an eating disorder .

Alyssa said: “I still hate a lot of parts of my body. When I was the most anorexic it was 10 years ago, but the way I see myself doesn’t really go away.”

Thanks to Graham’s encouragement, by the end of the shoot Alyssa was dancing around on set, visibly more relaxed.

She said she usually hates seeing pictures of herself, but she felt surprisingly happy with the end product.

It was enough to bring Graham to tears.

“I’m about to cry because I’m looking at you and I’m thinking about all the young girls out there who’ll say ‘if she can do it, I can do it’,” Graham said.

“So thank you.”

Male Grooming: How To Achieve Facial Hair Like Rag ‘N’ Bone Man

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s epic beard has inspired a London barber to put together a guide to creating and maintaining fierce facial hair.

With several shops located across the city, Pall Mall Barbers, know a thing or two about male grooming and maintenance.

Whether you’re thinking of growing one from scratch or simply looking to reshape, there are a few things to bare in mind.

“Keeping your beard in shape is key, warm up a small amount of moustache wax (Pall Mall Barbers Moustache Wax, £12) in your hands to keep stray hairs tame and tidy,” said Christian Hayward, senior barber at Pall Mall Barbers in Bishopsgate.

“I would also recommend a non-shine wax like the Pall Mall Barbers Pliable Clay (£10) to avoid a greasy look.”

A consultation about shape with your barber is also key to grooming success.

Maintenance afterwards should involve some love, care and attention.

“Conditioning your beard depends on the density and thickness of your beard hair, I’d recommend conditioning once or twice a week only, as over conditioning can lead to making the hair flimsy and not coarse enough to achieve a fuller beard look,” said Hayward.

“Beard oil (such as Pall Mall Barbers Sandlewood And Clove Beard Oil, £27) can be used daily to soften and add fragrance, as well as keeping the skin underneath in good condition, just rub in one or two drops and comb through for maximum effect.”
