Zendaya: Undisputed Fashion Icon and Rumoured Louis Vuitton Ambassador

by Alisha Bissessur At the young age of 26, Zendaya is already the face of a whole generation.  With her accomplished history in the acting industry, she has also found herself to be of fashion icon status.  Image: Jacopo Raule/Getty Images Honestly, who could ever forget the iconic Cinderella dress at the 2019 Met Gala, or her Balmain wet-look leather dress at the premiere of Dune, or even her unforgettable fuchsia breastplate at the 2021 Critics Choice Awards?  After keeping a low profile for months, she was impossible to miss dressed in head-to-toe tiger print for Louis Vuitton’s ‘Musée D’Orsay’ FW23/24 Paris Fashion Week show. Marking her first fashion outing of the season, Zendaya hadn’t been spotted on a front row since Valentino in October 2022.

Law Roach's Shock Retirement is a Reflection on Fashion Industry’s Issues with Exclusivity

by Josie Sharp Famed stylist Law Roach announced last week that he was retiring via a since-deleted Instagram post that blamed “The politics, the lies and false narratives” of the fashion industry for his decision. The 44-year-old is known for being the ‘image architect’ of stars including Zendaya and Anya Taylor-Joy.   Image: Luke Leitch Under the Instagram post that featured simply a red sign with 'RETIRED' written in large white letters, both fans and celebrities commented their adoration and sadness at his retirement. Roach was even called “an inspiration” by international supermodel Naomi Campbell who said that she wouldn’t allow him to retire.   At Paris Fashion Week, Zendaya and her stylist were rushed to the FROW of the Louis Vuitton show because they were running late, only for them to see there was no seat for him - at least not next to Zendaya. Roach explained to Lindsay Peoples on a podcast with ‘The Cut’ that he was used to his seat always being “next to her” so it

NASA Unveils New Spacesuit for Upcoming Moon Expedition

by Adria Mirabelli NASA presented its newly designed next-generation spacesuit on March 15th at Johnson Space Centre in Houston to a select group of publications and students.  The new design offers better-fitted options for women and will be worn during the Artemis II mission to the moon. Axiom Axiom Space was hired by NASA to design the new spacesuit which they have named the “Axiom Extravehicular Mobility Unit” or AxEMU. Said to be more streamlined, flexible and comfortable than previous versions of the spacesuit, it will feature better-fitted options for women as well as improved technology and safety features.  NASA have stated that the improved design will accommodate sizing for over 90% of the US male and female population. The unveiled prototype was shown in a dark charcoal grey with accents of orange and blue, but will ultimately be produced in white for the mission. White plays a key role because it better reflects sunlight and protects the wearer from extreme temperatures. H

by Geena Ling A 22-year-old triple threat who set up his own film company at age 16, George Jaques has been dubbed the most exciting new face in the industry by Sky’s managing director.  Darling writer, Geena, caught up with the rising-star to discuss improv, channelling the ‘80s, and co-starring with some of the biggest names in the business (including Jude Law!). Image: Sky Your new show, A Town called Malice, is set to launch on Sky. In your own words, what’s it all about? It's about a family in South West London who, once upon a time, used to be quite a big crime family, but now they’re not as big as [they] used to be, and they get a new home over in the Costa del Sol and try and start a new name for themselves over there. Are they trying to let go of their history of crime? I think they’re trying to add to it! They go over there and try and become one of the best again, so we see this kind of faded, washed out family getting a new start, basically. What are the main similariti
