“Carthago delenda est” – or, “Carthage must be destroyed” – was a favourite phrase of Roman orator Cato the Elder. Today, Tunisia is again reeling in the wake of violence, namely 2015’s two terrorist outrages, in the Bardo Museum and on the beach at Sousse. In a way, though, the holiday world’s abandonment of Tunisia’s beaches has allowed the spotlight to fall on the ancient heritage of a country too long hidden behind sun-loungers and all-you-can-eat buffets.

"This hasn't come from the usual trending food chain," Cult Beauty founder Alexia Inge explains, "the sudden lust for blush has come from the wellness boom that's taken over." Does that mean that the heavy coverage typical of 'Instagram makeup' is on its way out? Alongside the healthy glow that comes from an outdoorsy lifestyle, the return of the '80s across both fashion and beauty could also be the reason behind the new blush. Chanel's models had clashing blue eyeshadow above their peachy cheeks, and Pat McGrath gave the girls at Valentino a whirl of flush from brow to cheekbone.
If the idea of a pencil skirt conjures up images of flight attendants or ‘60s office workers à la Mad Men, it’s time to reconsider. The first pencil skirt as we know it was designed in 1954 by Christian Dior and presented in his H-Line collection, which deviated from the fuller skirts and nipped-in waists of his New Look. Marilyn Monroe made the style a feature of her everyday wardrobe after costume designer Orry-Kerry put her in a beaded tassel dress with a pencil skirt for 1959’s Some Like It Hot.
“We’ll try really hard, but we might get it wrong.” Last week, my parents arrived in London to watch my drag show. I’ve been out of the closet as a homosexual and as a drag queen for 14 and seven years respectively, and my parents, even though it took some time, have become incredibly well versed and engaged in what it means for me and my friends to be queer.

A representative from L'Oréal told BBC, "We appreciate that Amena has since apologised for the content of these tweets and the offence they have caused.
It's always a treat to hear what comes out of Frances McDormand's mouth when she gets up on stage, which is why this awards season has been particularly delightful. The actress nabbed two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Critic's Choice award, and a Golden Globe for her work in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri — or, Missoura, as McDormand kept saying during Sunday night's SAG ceremony. Let's. Because this brings up something I've been thinking about these past few months as Hollywood folded in on itself under the weight of allegation after allegation of sexual misconduct and assault.
There's little question that Jennifer Lawrence has acting chops — one only needs to look at the 27-year-old's four Oscar nominations to understand that. According to Rotten Tomatoes, Lawrence was nominated for a Razzie for 2017's mother!. Also known as "The Golden Raspberry Awards," the Razzies celebrate the worst things in cinema. This year, Lawrence was labeled one of them — but was that really the case?
The 78-year-old spoke out about her distaste for the #MeToo movement, railing at actresses who say Harvey Weinstein assaulted them. "If you spread your legs because he said 'be nice to me and I'll give you a job in a movie' then I'm afraid that's tantamount to consent, and it's too late now to start whingeing about that," Greer explained, before being honoured as Australian of the Year. Greer went onto speak against the #MeToo campaign more broadly, saying that she wanted women to react "immediately" to sexual harassment against their attackers.

When you first hear about the new Netflix series The Alienist, an 1890s serial killer mystery filled with serious men with serious grimaces, it’s easy to assume there will be no women to be found in the period drama. For proof of this simple fact, you need to look no further than leading lady Sara Howard (a tensely perfect Dakota Fanning). Sara is the third prong in our serial killer-catching brigade — rounded out by psychologist Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) and illustrator John Moore (Luke Evans) — and has absolutely no time to suffer fools.
When people ask me why I like covering tech, the answer is easy: It gives me the flexibility to cover everything. Nowadays, there's no field — not beauty, or art, or music — that isn't impacted by tech in some major way.
Enjoying some fresh air once in a while can do a whole lot of good for your health and mental state. If you’re struggling with body confidence issues, going for a brisk walk in the park could help you boost your self-esteem.

Award shows have the important role this year of acting as platforms for conversations around Hollywood's problem with sexual misconduct. The Golden Globes saw the debut of Time's Up, a movement and legal fund for survivors of sexual assault and harassment, observed by actors and actresses wearing all black. Now, the Screen Actors Guild Awards provided the opportunity for presenters Brie Larson and Lupita Nyong'o to publicly announce the news that SAG-AFTRA is working on a new code of conduct in an effort to stop anyone from ever having to say #MeToo again.
