Rihanna basically broke the internet this week when she announced her must-have Fenty Eau de Parfum is now available to purchase in the UK.
Many people still think that being a gamer and a Black woman is a juxtaposition. It’s not. We’re not unicorns. Just like in any other industry, there are content creators, industry professionals, and consumers, and Black women can be found in all of these categories — but they’re often overlooked, underestimated, or outright ignored. So Black women are taking their spot in gaming for themselves. If you’re not familiar with gaming, let me briefly explain how we got here. Gaming started with simpl
DashDividers_1_500x100 In early August, LGBTQ+ Twitch streamers began sharing clips of a growing and frightening phenomenon: hate raids, in which mass bot accounts would spam offensive speech and threats to active streamers in their chats. Raids were designed to be a positive way for streamers to direct their viewers to another person’s channel and help them grow a following. But after Twitch implemented dozens of identity tags to better connect sub-communities, from Black to Transgender to Anxi
Twitch streamer BrookeAB can’t stop smiling. The gamer lights up the studio as she walks onto set, having traded in her hoodie and biker shorts for a carrot-coloured top, sheer cropped jacket, and white biker skirt. A swath of flaming orange eyeshadow dances across her eyelids while tiny tangerine orbs top her fiery coffin nails. The look — from our gaming-meets-glam photoshoot — is an elevated reimagining of Phoenix, an agent Brooke, as everyone calls her in chat and IRL, often plays on Riot Ga

DashDividers_1_500x100 On her left arm, Twitch streamer LittleNavi has a tattoo of WASD, the four keyboard keys PC gamers typically use to move their characters. “It’s ironic, though, because my left hand is the hand that has lost the most function over the years,” says Lorelei, who goes by LittleNavi online to preserve her anonymity. She was diagnosed in her 20s with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, a chronic condition that affects her central nervous system. “I remember thinking, ‘I can
It’s been a difficult year for skinny jeans lovers. In February, TikTok, Gen Z’s go-to platform, declared the It denim trend of the ‘00s “uncool” alongside side-parts and the laugh-cry emoji. Since then, it has left many millennials wondering, “What do I wear now?” Our suggestion: balloon jeans, also known as bubble and barrel trousers. They’re loose, like the straight-leg styles that Gen Z approves of, but also boast a millennial-approved high-waist and tighter ankle hem. Even if you don’t base
Colson Baker, better known as Machine Gun Kelly, just came out with his own nail polish line. (Make room, Harry Styles.) However, MGK’s creation, UN/DN LAQR, looks very different than Pleasing‘s sheer, pearly polishes with caps made of weighted marble. Instead, the UN/DN colours are pigmented, the bottles evoke an industrial, graphic vibe, which corresponds with the tagline: “Don’t huff the paint.” More to the point, Baker views his nails as a medium for disruptive art — like ten small-size canv
If you've been on TikTok at all recently, you'll have no doubt seen all the talk around Chanel's limited edition advent calendar. So, what's the fuss about?
After recently announcing they'd be heading off on a break next year, Little Mix have revealed their one big career regret as a band – not breaking America. It
Whether you’re planning a city jaunt for the festive lights and markets or you want to swap hustle and bustle for something truly remote, there’s nothing quite like a Christmas getaway. It’s one of the reasons why The Holiday remains one of the very best festive films (well, this and Jude Law in glasses). Escaping normality feels exciting at the best of times but throw carols, mulled drinks around the fire and the possibility of snow into the mix and it’s positively magical.With the disappointme
TikTok is renowned for reinventing retro trends and making them cool again. Recently, beauty enthusiasts made a case for skinny brows (dividing attention as you might expect). Then there was the lip gloss revival and the ‘70s blonde hair comeback, not forgetting scene kid makeup. This month, an old-school hair removal method is making waves on the app. Enter: electrolysis. On TikTok, the hashtag #electrolysis has amassed 48.3 million views and counting, with millennials and Gen Z bingeing satisf
As far as true crime stories go, the tale of Susan and Christopher Edwards collects the genre’s key elements like unsavoury souvenirs. From large-scale cover-ups to frantically fleeing the country, on the surface the murderous couple could be seen as the East Midlands’ answer to Bonnie and Clyde. It is no surprise that the murky details of the story are being explored in new Sky Atlantic/HBO drama Landscapers. With Olivia Colman in the starring role, the four-part series sets out to explore how
When it comes to acne-prone skin, The Ordinary knows its stuff. TikTokers, beauty editors and dermatologists alike are obsessed with the brand’s Granactive Retinoid 2% In Emulsion, £8, which minimises spots and smooths skin texture over time, while the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, £6.80, recently went viral for helping to fade hyperpigmentation and skin staining left behind by breakouts. This week, The Ordinary has rather excitingly added another soon-to-be buzzy product to its skincare dyn
As a millennial, TikTok has become my go-to for uncovering the latest skincare hacks, makeup dupes and trend-led hair and beauty looks. But when Gen Z beauty enthusiasts flag a product (often propelling it to viral status), I really sit up and listen. Recently, the hashtag #botoxinabottle has amassed an enormous 16 million views and counting, with skin-Tokers mixing two buzzy skincare serums. They claim that together, the products serve up similar results to Botox: smooth, glowing skin and minim
Buying gifts for a group of people can get really expensive really fast. Every time you think you're done, you're reminded of yet another person who you should probably get a gift for. It doesn't have to be crazy expensive: just showing you thought of them in some way makes enough of an impact.
The British royal family certainly knows how to celebrate Christmas—and meeting Santa Claus is no exception. Here, we've rounded up the best of the royals with Santa.
Two Metropolitan police officers who photographed the bodies of Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman after their murder last year have been sentenced to jail time.
It's been 28 years since the Christmas classic hit screens for the first time, and it seems the cast has grown up a bit since then.
