I remember being 15 years old, walking past a fashion store that sold fur, which was surrounded by a group of shouting protesters. They handed me a leaflet covered in shocking images of mangled animals that had been skinned – and that moment was so powerful, it opened up a whole new world of thought for me. It’s what turned me vehemently anti-fur and vegetarian, both of which I still am today. But then over the years, it seemed to me that people who would hit the streets to protest for their cause gradually grew fewer – and activism became an oddly dirty and angry word. Until now. Suddenly, giving a f*ck matters again. I mean, genuinely Giving A F*ck – about animal cruelty, ethical fashion, sustainable beauty, equal pay, diversity,…

who do you think you are?

SO SOLID CREW Old-school garage is a major mood for spring: think slicked-back ponies circa Ms Dynamite, super-polished, tough-girl make-up like Lisa Maffia, plus a killer wardrobe of casual sportswear meets haute couture. Modern muses Julie Adenuga, Mahalia and Ella Mai take the look into 2019. Never Mind The Bollocks, we’re living in a love letter to punk right now. And no one hits the beat better than Vivienne Westwood – our fashion-freedom monarch and activism hero, still sticking it to convention at the age of 77. Channel Viv’s vibe with renegade layers and cool checks, à la Molly Moorish, mixed with ballsy hair and make-up, as seen at Charles Jeffrey. Accessorise with Naomi’s attitude. REEM TEAM Love it or hate it, the Towie crew and footie wags crashed the noughties’ natural-beauty party –…

major moments

Rock ’n’ rose Rodarte’s romantic, architectural-style floral wreath is big news for spring/summer. With MUA James Kaliardos’s “Picasso-inspired, modern-art make-up of strong, vibrant colours and abstract shapes”, it’s a punchy, petal-inspired look. Blend the edges of the vivid yellow Single Eyeshadow in Douro, £19, Nars, for a “soft, geometric” finish. Band together A little bit ’60s and a little bit futuristic, Prada’s oversized studded headbands are the season’s most-’grammed beauty accessory. “Every girl was given a short fringe for a boyish, rebellious finish,” says super-hairstylist Guido Palau, who created the look. Game face Nothing says Ready Player One more than rocking a game console silhouette on your face. Miranda Joyce’s metallic interpretation for Matty Bovan who “wanted a Nintendo 64 reference”, celebrates the season’s ode to artistry and individuality, giving a whole new meaning to…

hey, it’s ok…

…to mourn a hair tie that lived on your wrist for three months, then finally had enough and snapped. RIP, little friend …if you drank a little bit too much on Saturday night – your Sunday sheet-mask ritual will fix everything …to love wearing one-sleeved tops – mostly because it means you only have to shave one armpit …if the idea that vaginal bleaching is a trend makes you want to throw up (or at least cross your legs) …if you’re more devastated about your hairdresser moving away than you were about your last break-up …to go ‘make-up free’, but still do your brows. You said no make-up, not naked …if you feel slightly freaked out holding your friend’s new baby. Sometimes things just get too real …to have a ‘surf and turf’ approach to being pescatarian.…

activism: reloaded (why were generation gaf)

Look around you. Turn on your TV. You’re either watching The Handmaid’s Tale, or seeing state-sanctioned female oppression unfurl in real life. Your news cycle is littered with celebrities calling out high-profile sexual assaulters or getting arrested at political protests. That, or the latest reaction to Trump. Meanwhile, the influencers and celebs you follow are posting on Instagram about trans rights, mental-health awareness or the #PeoplesVoteMarch against Brexit. Woke badges of honour, from re-grammed slogans to trending hashtags, are replacing the selfie on your feed, and all your mates are, yep, #Activists, too. Psychologist Kirsten Godfrey attributes this to the growing “collective voice and power” garnered from our increased social-media and digital connectivity. “There’s a huge power in numbers. And millennials and Gen Z also have a stronger sense of identity…

“what millennial means to me”

Lilly, 29, singer/songwriter/actress “I’m an attention seeker, so I love being on stage and social media. We can create a mini-brand and image of who we want to be, or think we should be.” Emily, 29, graphic designer “I see a totally different side to the millennial label. I see myself as an individual rather than a follower, because we had our own stamp and our own identity growing up without social media influencing our fashion or music choices.” Anisa, 27, fashion blogger “I think we are more self-expressive, receptive and open-minded to the evolving way of living.” Ruby, 23, recent graduate and freelance writer “I don’t hold the term millennial as part of who I am, probably because I have other things I feel define me more, such as being a writer and a single mother.” Pravina,…
