Do we all remember how insanely popular Ashley Graham's first PrettyLittleThing collection was? We do. Which is why we're oh so grateful for take two; step into spring.

The company are SO excited to announce their second collaboration with the veteran model, entrepreneur, body positivity activist host of American Beauty Star. 

Their #EveryBODYinPLT campaign praises the inclusion of all body types, and PrettyLittleThing are aiming to encourage confidence through fashion, celebrating every woman.

 

The collection is all about those beautiful silhouettes which make you feel effortlessly gorgeous.

Winter wardrobes are officially GONE, it's time to bring back spring. The clothes inspired by the amazing Ashley Graham provide lush, killer outfits with sophisticated tailored pieces.

We're talkin' blazers, button detail dresses and peplum jumpsuits; be your own boss.

Ashley spoke about her collection, expressing her hope that size will no longer be the 'be all and end all' in fashion;

“The #EveryBODYinPLT campaign shows customers that their size cannot define them and will not restrict them from having access to clothing that they love. Brands like PrettyLittleThing influence millions of people who want to dress on trend, and I’m excited to reach even more people with this second collection.”

The feminine gathered dresses, satin styles and sweetheart neckline silhouettes will have hearts racing, and red takes a starring role. It's next level, gals. Shop the collection now on their website; it's available in UK sizes 6-28. UNREAL.

The Victoria's Secret fashion show took place last weekend, and the controversy surrounding the event has been mounting ever since, despite the fact that it hasn't even been aired yet.

Ed Razek, chief marketing officer of L Brands (VS's parent company) threw caution (and tact) to the wind in his exclusive Vogue interview about the fashion show, which first began in 1995.

The public were less than impressed, to say the least, about his statements regarding transgender models in his 'fantasy' show, as well as his attitude towards Rihanna's ground-breaking Savage x Fenty lingerie show.

Razek was quizzed about the lack of diversity in his own show, which features predominantly skinny, cisgender white models, and had more than a few things to say on the matter:

"Do I think about diversity? Yes. Does the brand think about diversity? Yes. Do we offer larger sizes? Yes….Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy."

As you can imagine, this caused major drama, as it appears to imply that transgender models are not part of the 'fantasy' world of Victoria's Secret.

Razek later issued an apology regarding his comments about transgender models, which wasn't received well:

His outspoken opinions on the 'fantasy' which excluded transgender models were not the only bone of contention. Razek also shared his own thoughts on Rihanna's phenomenally successful show:

"It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute, including the competitors that are carping at us."

"They carp at us because we’re the leader. …We’re their first love. And Victoria’s Secret has been women’s first love from the beginning."

"Everybody keeps talking about Rihanna’s show. If we had done Rihanna’s show, we would be accused of pandering without question."

Blogger and influencer Louise O'Reilly (@StyleMeCurvy) spoke out about the contentious chief marketing director in a tweet, which Bad Gal Riri LIKED.  The shade.

Her show featured a huge range of models ranging in size and ethnicity, as well as ability. Pregnant model and long-time Fenty ambassador Slick Woods walked the show while nine months pregnant.

Rihanna has yet to officially comment on the Victoria's Secret fashion show, but we highly doubt she'd be impressed by the now-infamous Vogue interview.

To think, it was only back in 2012 that Rihanna performed at the fashion show herself… how time flies.

2018 is a whole other fashion show ball game it seems.

Emma Watson is definitely one of the most inspirational actresses out there – and this proves it!

The actress has been appointed as a UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador and has spoken of her delight at the news: “Being asked to serve as [an] UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling.”

Emma also spoke of the importance of the appointment, saying it is one she is taking very seriously: “The chance to make a real difference is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly.”

The Harry Potter star, who recently graduated from Brown University with a degree in English Literature, also took to her Twitter account to announce the exciting news.

Well done, Emma, we’re sure you are going to give it your all and make a big difference in this world!

Rita Ora landed herself in hot water with Italian trainer brand Superga – when she was snapped wearing shoes by a rival label.

The pop star, who inked a deal as the face of the shoe label, agreed not to wear trainers by rival companies during her time as the label’s ambassador.

She was reportedly paid £180,000 to stay loyal to Superga, taking over from Alexa Chung.

But last April, the Hot Right Now singer was spotted at a London nightclub wearing a pair of Converse, with celebrity pals Cara Delevingne and Ellie Goulding in tow.

This led to the Scottish firm who own Superga to withdraw her last two payments for breaching her contract.

The singer was caught up in a hefty legal battle with the brand as she demanded to be paid her fee and asked for £90,000 extra for her troubles.

The case has now been settled out of court, and while the outcome has been kept hush-hush, it seems both parties have moved on!

Rita is rumoured to be collaborating with Adidas, and Superga have snapped up model Suki Waterhouse as the new face of their brand.
