We get through clothes on a monumental scale, with four times as many of them in our wardrobes compared to 1980, prices rapidly dropping to meet cheap greed, and over 80billion garments now produced each year.
A pop of paint on the lips is fresh, fun and playful. It's also one of the quickest ways to step up your makeup routine.
Whilst men's gym clothes remain baggy and pretty separate from fashion, women are expected to purchase tight leggings, tighter tops and sports bras designed for appearance rather than just holding the sisters in place whilst you go for a jog.
Although one might think that Eastern European fashion is glitter and gold chains (yet another partially correct stereotype) it is so much more than that. It has been almost 25 years since the collapse of the Soviet Bloc, which is enough time to seed and cultivate an independent sense of creativity in fashion.
If you don't want to go full va-va-voom you can always relax in a more casual number, and besides, when you get home you can simply sidle between the sheets when you head for slumber city, what's not there to love?
Yes, Moss is now one of the most famous faces in the world, but she has previously admitted that pressure to pose in sexualised shoots at a young age contributed to her having a "nervous breakdown" at the age of 17.
I want Brits to be braver with their choice of eyewear instead of stumbling instead of just stumbling into Vision Express for the best 2-1 deal. It doesn't happen that way with our European friends in Germany, France & Holland, where eye-wear is seen as an extension of an individual's identity and thus frames, quite frankly, have more flair and personality.
The coat was the most gorgeous fur piece I had ever seen in my 26 years and it was a gift for me. My late husband, Michael, surprised me with a long-haired Russian Lynx coat. I was in triple shock! I felt like Katherine the Great and Anastasia all rolled into one.

The problem they face is that the modelling industry is changing; the price of model bookings has dropped because the demand for website imagery has increased.
I don't have any desire to start wearing hemp trousers and rename myself after a star but feeling peace within yourself, by not wearing make-up is a wonderful thing. I love full on glamour, hair and make-up I won't lie, but it's quite liberating going out a few times a week with no make-up on.
Not only does making good and mend - refashioning what's already in existence - fulfil us creatively, it's also economically, socially and environmentally beneficial... It is certainly far more eco-friendly on a many number of levels, to give your existing wardrobe a bespoke makeover than to commit to the bin or charity shop without a second thought.
I embrace my hips, my hairy legs (always a winner in the winter months) and my little flecks of grey hair. This is who I am, I like to enhance the way I look, but I no longer feel the need to change it to suit anybody other than myself. There is a lot more to me than my 'imperfect' body and by taking control of that, I can concentrate on the rest of my being.
It's time for designers to look at waste as an ally, offering innovation and opportunity and for consumers to give their rubbish a second chance. Not only is this important for the wellbeing of our planet but these visionary brands show us how original and beautiful it can be too.
You see, despite society's and the plus size fashion industry's preconceptions about the average fat girl, we are capable and ready for so much more. We are bold and bright and intelligent and worthy of dynamic communication and product and we want it now.
Beatrice Borromeo is not only the high profile figure who changed into another wedding dress for her reception. Did you know the Duchess of Cambridge changed into another Alexander McQueen wedding dress for her reception?
Be your own fashion expert and lead from the front. Know yourself first - before you dress yourself. That's why I encourage them to invest in a quality timeless styles, rather than following every fashion trend that was not designed for their body shape in the first place!
