Being a 21st Century feminist can come with many contradictions. I'm a feminist, but I love Gossip Girl, the main storyline of which is an essentially abusive relationship (Chuck and Blair). I'm a feminist, but I listen to Childish Gambino. I'm a feminist, but if I choose to get married, I want my father to walk me down the aisle.
The notion that men should fear the end of sexism is as absurd and repellent as the notion that white people should fear the end of racism, or straight people should fear the end of homophobia. But should David Cameron fear feminism? Well probably yes.
Embracing feminism requires more than labelling oneself as a feminist. The use of the word feminism becomes meaningless unless actions correspond to what the concept seeks to achieve: gender equality.
One of my favourite shopping destinations, paired with one of my favourite events of the year: Regent Tweet 2014. The annual event sees bloggers from across the globe take to one of London's most famous shopping streets and make it their playground for one day only.
Selfies at their best are, like the fashion magnate claims, narcissistic and unashamedly self-gratifying. At worst? A sorry way to define a generation and a potentially damaging by-product of a supposedly liberating medium.
iconic Parisian label Chanel created overblown cuffs, with the house's signature pearls sitting alongside tartan, tweed and chains for a Scottish heritage feel. A trip into the archives reveals that this isn't the first time that the Gallic fashion house has turned Gaelic, however.
"Look my darling, I'm 90 years old. These musicians come here, and they play old things, always old. I don't want to look back anymore. We're alive NOW. So play me something totally new. Play some pop. Like Adele, but not so miserable."
Fashion Week has come and gone, ending with its grand finale in Paris as the style set sat for some of next season's most amazing and memorable collections.
Kate, Naomi, Alexa... The fashion world is no stranger to a Brit girl done good. But of late, there's been a distinct sense of young British models flying the flag for team GB across all sorts of different ponds. And these girls won't settle for bronze, they're going for gold.
It's official - Scotland is having a fashion moment. Harvey Nichols has just celebrated its 10th anniversary, Hayley Scanlan was name Scottish Young Designer of the Year 2012, and today, fashion designer extraordinaire, Karl Lagerfeld, brings CHANEL's Métiers d'Art 2012/13 show to the capital city, Edinburgh.
Immodesty's metier is burlesque, which derives from the Italian word burla, meaning joke or mockery, and can be a literary, dramatic or musical work. The term has been commonly used in the US to refer to performances in a variety show format, something which irks her.
The descriptions "a man of many hats" and "renaissance man" do not even marginally do justice to what Karl Lagerfeld has achieved, and is indeed still achieving at the age of "79".
Philo is responsible for turning the trend tide, stripping back the limbs of the embellished sartorial landscape, and leaving a purer, refined quality behind. Céline is the calm eye of the fashion storm, a serene place where stylish boats can float and fish with no fear of maximalist predators.
Appearance pressures are no longer a lightweight topic. I know this because Gov. Minister Lynne Featherstone has just attended the first UN Summit abo...
Even whilst heading up Chanel, Fendi and being an all-round style polymath, Karl Lagerfeld thankfully still manages to find time to burp out some preposterous, inflammatory musings from time-to-time. His inability to self-edit is what makes him such a charmingly nefarious fashion patriarch.
