As Meghan Markle's royal tour wraps up, we're rounding up her speeches, her wardrobe, and, yes, even her bodyguard on how they showcase why the Duchess of Sussex is the feminist princess we've been waiting for.
The “Harry Potter” star’s support for the trans community has some fans riled up — while others are calling her “the brightest witch of her age.”
According to a statement from one of her friends, she left a note, and this was her third attempt to commit suicide in the past two years.
Researchers at Abertay University in Dundee, Esther James and Shauny Jenkins, discovered a correlation between the amount of makeup a woman wears and a colleague’s perception of her leadership ability. Is it right to judge a woman on her leadership skills based on her makeup? Findings indicate that both men and women viewed the women wearing more makeup in a negative light therefore believe she would be a poor leader in the workplace.
In light of the Time's Up movement, which celebrities marked by wearing all black to the 2018 Golden Globes, one wonders: Why can't smart women love fashion and be activists for change?

In 2015, a group of women in their 50s were turned away from a Cannes Film Festival premiere for wearing flat shoes on the red carpet.According to the festival organisers, heels were obligatory for women at any Cannes red carpet events.Of course, there was uproar at the news with women everywhere demanding that men be given the same ridiculous treatment.Plenty of celebrities had strong opinions on the matter too. Although many didn’t use their voice to state how they felt, they used something much more effective.A year after the debacle, Julia Roberts turned up to the Cannes premiere of Money Monster wearing the usual A-list heel look. But as the actress took to the famous red stairs, she revealed she was now barefoot.People saw it as an act of rebellion – although Julia never confirmed this. Instead, she simply said: “A lot was happening from my ankles up. Let’s not forget all that.”In the same year, 70-year-old Susan Sarandon arrived on the red carpet in a sharp suit and flat black shoes. Never one for sticking to traditional style rules, the formidable star appeared to be giving two fingers to the organisers that had said women must totter round in painful shoes.Lots of other stars have proven that women don’t need heels to be taken seriously on the red carpet. Uma Thurman, Cate Blanchett and the statuesque Gwendoline Christie have all taken to wearing flats at various premieres and events.Actress Emma Thompson famously threw her Louboutin heels over her shoulder at the 2014 SAG Awards, swapping them for some glittery Louboutin flats instead.Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot was the most recent famous face to flout the rules. She has carried out her entire press tour in flat shoes – even wearing a dainty pair of Aldo sandals with a stunning red Givenchy gown.When asked why she wasn’t wearing heels (because that is the most important question, everyone), Gal replied: “It’s more comfortable. That’s it.”At this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Kristen Stewart – a regular wearer of Converse on the red carpet – made her thoughts clear. “There’s definitely a distinct dress code,” she told the Hollywood Reporter. “People get very upset at you if you don’t wear heels. If you’re not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, then you can’t ask me either.”Here, we take a look at all the celebrities who have taken a stand against heel-wearing on the red carpet.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
