If we weren’t that interested we are now. It started in earnest during the India tour, but the Vogue June Issue photo shoot has given us an extra shot in the arm, and now everyone has an opinion on the Cambridges and who is advising them, especiallyKate.
The events of the past few weeks have brought out the frustrated Future Queen Manager in all of us, and this cuts across the generations and sexes, or it has in our house. My dad was an early advocate of trimming the long hair. My husband has taken against the espadrille wedges. We’re all hoping that Kate’s Vogue makeover (allegedly the first time she hasn’t done her own make up) will signal the end of the kohl-rimmed eyes, because none of us are mad for those.
Meanwhile there’s been some confusion as to why Prince George and Princess Charlotte are being dressed in the post-war style complete with George’s tidy civil servant haircut.
Admittedly, I am probably the most invested in Project Kate (so pretty! So badly advised!) but no more so than most women I know who are old enough to be her mother, and at the same time harbour complicated fantasies involving wearing ermine, and hanging out with Prince Harry. Anyway. With all due respect we loyal subjects have given the matter some careful thought and here’s what she should do, asap.
Wear less make up
Easy for me to say, I’m not being photographed with a pitiless lens. But I did once queue alongside K Midd in Pret a Manger during the Waity Katie years and it is footlights heavy. I’m thinking cut right back on the hair and makeup (ponytail! Once over with the BB cream) and you’re automatically regaining five hours a week for having fun.
No more ethnic fashion themes please
What was that about? On official appointments it should be chic, sharp designer all the way and just say no to the Monsoony Top Shop. I’m advising ditching the nude courts too, they frump up everything. And the Spanish chignon updo, which is ever so slightly Mrs Danvers. And the midi hemlines, because Kate has excellent pins and she looks her best a bit flirty. And what’s with the Accessorize earrings? Wear the Cartier, Kate! Wear the Cartier!
Aim for 15 per cent more risk, a tad more mischievous and less demure
Princess Di bucked the system by not wearing tights, if you remember, dragging royal protocol into the twentieth century. Kate should go bra-less (she does) and wear her heirloom rocks with jeans.
Put the babies in Boden!
For pities sake, one of the top bonuses about giving birth to middle class children in the twenty first century is being able to dress them in delicious Mini Boden. It’s the best fun you can have with your credit card. Someone seems to be under the impression that there is a royal children ‘look’ consisting of fair isle cardis, corduroy shorts and button over shoes, and there was, circa 1960.
Sam Cam up those Kensington Palace interiors
Just a bit. Not suggesting the introduction of an Ikea red leather sofa but maybe one less pleated cream lampshade? An ipod dock or similar? Could they borrow a Hockney? Where is Nicky Haslam when you need him?
Finally, tell William (gently, because he’s obviously got a bee in his bonnet) to stop going on about needing to spend time with the children
Because, TBH, all the parents in the world are thinking, ‘So how is that going to play out when they are ten? When they’re doing their GCSEs? If he needs extra time now what’s going to happen when the Nanny’s not around?’ It’s just alarming for those of us who are watching over them for the long haul.
Want to look like a supermodel? “Non-Touring” is a newest trend that will help you look like a supermodel. Read the article below to know how!
When temperatures and humidity start to rise, we update our make-up bags, trading in our rich foundations and powder blushes for more lightweight, dewier formulas. Our complexions might have felt oppressed by heavy contouring makeup in years past, but not this Summer. We’re skipping that step entirely in favour of the new low-maintenance beauty trend: non-touring.
Similar to the “baby face” trend, non-touring spotlights fresh, healthy skin and lightly strobed features. Celebrity makeup artist Renee Sanganoo told Marie Claire that models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are key examples of stars who have mastered this look.
“It’s kind of like Spanx for the skin,” she explained. “You know you’re wearing it, but no one’s supposed to see it.”
Not only will your face feel like it can breathe when you try non-touring, you’ll also be delighted by how simple the technique is. It consists of only three steps that even a makeup amateur can grasp.
After applying a luminous primer like Guerlain Météorites Base, even out your complexion with a tinted moisturiser. Then complete your look by adding a highlighter like Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent to the high points of your face, like your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid’s bow.
The best part? Because of the priming step, this trend is practically sweatproof, too, making it ideal to wear well into the steamiest days of Summer.
According to E! News, Ozzy Osbourne and his wife of 33 years, Sharon Osbourne, have split up. For more information, read the article below.
A source has told E! News that the couple mutually agreed that Ozzy would move out of their house temporarily.
The report states that the couple’s breakup is not related to Ozzy’s sobriety. The BLACK SABBATH singer has apparently been sober for three and a quarter years.
British tabloid newspaper The Sun reports that Sharon left Ozzy after she accused the musician of having an affair with a celebrity hairstylist.
The couple’s spokesman, Gary Farrow, did not address the infidelity claims, but issued the following statement to The Huffington Post U.K.: “At this time, Ozzy is not at the marital home.”
A source told People that the rumors of the split are “sort of true,” but added that they would not be surprised if Ozzy and Sharon worked out their differences. “He’ll be back,” the source said.
This is not the first time Sharon and Ozzy have separated. Back in 2013, Sharon admitted she was considering divorcing Ozzy after he relapsed on drink and drugs. She spoke about the rumors on during an episode of her U.S. talk show “The Talk”, saying that everything written about their split had been “distorted.”
“We’re not getting divorced,” she continued. “However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes I am. I’m devastated right now.
“We’re dealing with it,” she continued, speaking about Ozzy’s much-publicized battles with drugs. “We’ve dealt with worse. We’re dealing with it and this too shall pass.”
Ozzy has previously credited Sharon for saving his life. “I’m alive because I’ve got a strong wife, I think,” he said. “I didn’t expect to live past 30. I remember when I was 21 saying I would be dead by 40. That was all right until I was 39½.”
As part of his recovery, Ozzy was going to daily AA meetings which he said was the only way he can stay sober. “Sharon tells me I’m a bloody fool and screams at me when I’m drinking, but that doesn’t stop me,” he told DailyMail.co.uk. “But she supports me, she knows it’s an illness, she knows it’s part of who I am and it’s only me who can deal with it and it’s because I don’t want to lose what I have with Sharon and the kids that I do it. No one else can cure an addict but the addict.”
After Ozzy was fired from BLACK SABBATH in 1979 because of substance abuse and erratic behavior, Sharon became his solo career manager, and then his girlfriend. The two were married on July 4, 1982.
The couple’s early relationship has been described as volatile, with Ozzy blacking out and almost strangling Sharon after a five-day Vodka binge in 1989.
Ozzy and Sharon have three children: Aimee, 31; Kelly, 29; and Jack, 28.
Emma and Busted rocker husband Matt already have daughter Isabelle, six, and four-year-old son Ace.
A source said: “They couldn’t be more made up and are enjoying precious time together as a family.”
Earlier this month, Busted singer Matt opened up about Emma being due to give birth just days before he heads on tour with the reunited pop rock trio.
He told MailOnline: “I can’t wait for the baby. Emma is due on the fourth of May and we go on tour on May 11, so we’re cutting it pretty fine, but it will be fine. I’m really stoked about it, I can’t wait!”
You might have bought your bikini, but have you planned your airport outfit? Maybe not. Check the article below for more amazing airport outfits!
Summer is around the corner and the holiday count down is on. Nailing the art of airport style is not as straightforward as you think; comfort is key but making it look effortless and chic – that can be tricky.
GLAMOUR cover star supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is always a a style icon, but when it comes to airport style she really knocks it out of the park. Case in point, her latest airport look; a nude silky satin dressing gown coat.
Pyjama dressing was spring/summer 2016’s stand out trend, but perhaps the most challenging one. However done well (opt for a neutral palette in silk satin with loose fits), it can look incredibly chic and insouciant. Taking cues from Rosie, this could be the perfect solution to looking stylish in transit.
Take a look at our pick of the perfect travel pieces:
Since Kylie Jenner dropped her metallic lip kits we’ve been seeing reflective pouts crop up all over our insta-feeds. Yep, the youngest from the Kardashian clan seems to be on a mission to revive some of the 90s long-lost beauty trends, from brick-brown lip colours to grungy eyeliner, and now, frosted, shimmery pouts.
Unlike the ever-so glossy metallic lips of the 90s, 2016 has seen formulas reinvented with a matte finish.
Beauty brands like Too Faced, MUA, Jeffree Star and of course, Kylie Cosmetics, are creating metallic liquid lipsticks that give a super-sheen, but, dry down matte, making them a *tad* easier to pull off than the super-slick, glossy versions. They’re still a LONG way from lip balm territory though, so steer clear if you’re easily spooked by bold makeup.
As with any liquid lipstick, the key is to make sure you pout is in the best condition possible. Start by buffing away any dry patches with a lips scrub. Then, load up on an ultra-nourishing balm like the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm, to soften. When it comes to applying your liquid lipstick use a precision lip brush to help avoid a wonky lip line, and finally, trace the edges with a touch of concealer for a flawless finish, et voila!
What are the 10 best TV clothes of all time? All information that you are looking for are here in this article. Check it now!
In ITV’s current Scandi-style crime drama Marcella – written by Hans Rosenfeldt, creator of The Bridge, hence its strong whiff of Nordic noir – heroine Anna Friel’s fur-trimmed green parka is attracting as many headlines as its wearer. The Teflon-coated, duck down-stuffed coat by US lumberjack label Woolrich has since become a high-street bestseller – both the £535 original and cheaper copycats.
Marcella’s signature jacket is just the latest in an illustrious line of iconic TV clothing. Some of these items were specifically designed to lend characters a distinctive look. Others snuck up by surprise, gaining a cult following among the show’s fans and even kickstarting fashion trends. From Columbo’s crumpled mac to Tom Baker’s stripy scarf, Robin Day’s polka dot bow tie to Hercule Poirot’s polished spats, clothing can play a surprisingly central role in our much-loved series.
So take a trip down memory lane by rifling through the rail of our top 10 TV garments…
Tom Baker’s scarf (Doctor Who)
Other incarnations of the Time Lord had sartorial signatures, from William Hartnell’s frock coat to Matt Smith’s bow tie, but none captured the public imagination like the Fourth Doctor’s scarf – said in the show to have been knitted for him by Madame Nostradamus. Its impractical length was due to a mix-up: inspired by Toulouse-Lautrec, costume designer James Acheson gave his friend Begonia Pope a bag of wool and asked her to create a colourful design. She proceeded to use all the wool provided, resulting in the absurdly oversized accessory. Baker teamed it with a felt fedora, jammed atop his wild mop of curls. Jelly Baby?
Emma Peel’s catsuit (The Avengers)
As the all-action sidekicks of gentleman John Steed (Patrick Macnee), both Cathy Gale (Honor “Pussy Galore” Blackman) and Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) sported black leather catsuits in the Sixties “spy-fi” series. They were originally chosen for practical reasons: black for burglar-style stealth, leather to prevent them getting ripped during fight scenes. Worn with “kinky boots”, the futuristic, fetishistic garb added to the cult show’s appeal, especially for male viewers. Female superheroes from Barbarella to Black Widow have donned them ever since.
Mr Darcy’s shirt (Pride & Prejudice)
Sure, it was a 182-year-old, school syllabus-beloved story but Andrew Davies’s landmark 1995 BBC adaptation sparked a huge Jane Austen revival – in no small part thanks to “that” scene. As Elizabeth Bennet (Jennifer Ehle) strolled around Pemberley’s grounds, she chanced across a dripping Fitzwilliam Darcy (Colin Firth), fresh from a restorative swim in the lake after a long horse-ride. His wet white linen shirt was actually rather chaste – Davies originally wanted Darcy to dive in naked, Firth vetoed the idea – but was enough to make Lizzie (and millions of viewers) swoon.
• TV hunks through history
Sarah Lund’s jumper (The Killing)
The star-patterned sweater sported by Detective Inspector Sarah Lund became synonymous with Nordic noir when the genre took off five years ago, with BBC Four’s hit Saturday-night screening of the series known in its native Denmark as Forbrydelsen. To capture her character’s uncommunicative, emotionally distant nature, actress Sofie Gråbøl decided to “act like a man”, so her androgynous outfits – all anoraks, wellies and chunky knits – served a purpose. Made by Faroese brand Gudrun & Gudrun, the £290 jumper saw such a boom in sales that local sheep couldn’t keep up with demand.
Tommy Cooper’s fez
The comic conjuror chanced across his trademark Ottoman headwear by accident. While on national service, “Cooper the Trooper” joined a Naafi entertainment party and during one show in Cairo was performing a sketch in which he was supposed to wear a pith helmet. Having forgotten the prop, he instinctively swiped a fez from a passing waiter’s head. When it got big laughs, he decided to keep it. With Cooper standing 6ft 4in and weighing 16st, the fez provided a visual punchline to his manic appearance.

Pauline Fowler’s cardigan (EastEnders)
The shouty Cockney soap’s original matriarch was an Albert Square stalwart for 21 years: working in the launderette, married to the luckless “Arfer” and forever wrestling with financial or family woes. As the years went by, actress Wendy Richard gradually shed her glamorous Miss Brahms from Are You Being Served? image and Pauline became a classic soap opera battle-axe, as signified by her ever-present baggy beige cardigan.
Columbo’s mac (Columbo)
The endlessly repeated Seventies detective drama, a “howcatchem” rather than a “whodunit”, starred Peter Falk as LAPD homicide cop Lieutenant Frank Columbo. The dishevelled, cigar-smoking sleuth was inseparable from his crumpled beige raincoat and it somehow summed him up: humble, unassuming, seemingly absent-minded, always underestimated by his foes – until he’d shrewdly solve the case with “Just one more thing…” One story saw Columbo’s wife buy him a new coat for his birthday. However, he “can’t think” in it and deliberately loses it so he can return to his old favourite.

Del Boy Trotter’s sheepskin coat (Only Fools & Horses)
Ideal for those chilly days selling hooky goods down Peckham market, wheeler-dealer Derek Trotter’s shearling coat was often teamed with a poloneck, flat cap and medallion for a faux-sophisticated look that encapsulated the aspirational Eighties wideboy. Actor David Jason loved it so much, he had one specially made to wear off-screen. It came from Suffolk-based sheepskin specialist Nursey & Son, which also sold coats to guitarist Eric Clapton and football commentator John Motson, but sadly closed its doors in 2015 after 169 years of business. Not cushty, lovely or indeed jubbly.
Frank Spencer’s beret (Some Mothers Do ’Ave ’Em)
“Ooh, Betty – the cat’s done a whoopsie in my beret.” The travails of accident-prone Frank Spencer (Michael Crawford) and superhumanly patient wife Betty (Michele Dotrice) were the missing link between Norman Wisdom and Mr Bean, the Seventies sitcom’s slapstick stunts meaning it was exported worldwide. Frank’s trademark trenchcoat, tanktop and beret were a signifier of his naive, buffoonish, mummy’s boy nature. Crawford recently dusted them down for a Sport Relief special. Coincidentally, the era’s sitcoms starred a second beret-wearer: Robert Lindsay’s “urban guerrilla” Wolfie in Citizen Smith.
Tony Soprano’s dressing gown (The Sopranos)
In the game-changing HBO drama that began the trend towards boxset TV, James Gandolfini’s “Tone” was a new kind of gangster: an introspective depressive who was in therapy and struggled with his flesh-and-blood family as much as his Mafia one. His white dressing gown was a symbol of his relative normality. The New Jersey mob boss would wake up late, scratch his stubbly jowls like a domesticated bear, pull a heavy bathrobe over his vest and boxers, then amble down his driveway to pick up the newspaper – while looking eagerly for the ducks that visited his pool and brought him peace.

Now the ‘family man’ actor outed by US publication as having slept with Wayne Rooney prostitute is named all over social media despite gagging order
An A-list actor who won an injunction to hush up claims he slept with a prostitute used by Wayne Rooney has been widely named on social media just hours after being identified in the US.
The married father, whose reputation as a family man has boosted his career as a world-renowned star, allegedly paid escort Helen Wood £195 for sex.
The millionaire then paid a firm of high-powered lawyers tens of thousands of pounds to stop his fans finding out and successfully obtained a draconian gagging order in 2011 preventing publication of the details of the encounter.
However, the cheating well-known celebrity was outed yesterday in American print media due to differing laws to the UK, and just hours later his name was prevalent across British social media.
It comes despite the fact the ‘family man’ paid hundreds of thousands on the gagging order to keep the affair private and out of the public eye.
And it now means people around the world will know all about the sordid claims, but UK publications still cannot publish the details.
Campaigners said the law was again proving itself ‘an ass’, following the case of another married celebrity who is trying to hush up claims of an extra-marital threesome. He has already been named in the US and Scotland.
And last month, a married football star threatened legal action to stop newspapers writing about secret sex messages, having won an injunction banning mention of an earlier affair.
The latest A-list philanderer – with a reputation as a family man that has boosted his career – allegedly paid Miss Wood £195 for sex, then paid tens of thousands of pounds to lawyers to obtain an injunction preventing fans from finding out.
The gagging order was granted by the High Court in 2011. But yesterday the global star was humiliated in the US as a publication available to millions of Americans plastered his name and photo over two pages of sordid claims about his infidelity with the prostitute and ‘a sex toy’.
Last night the publication’s editor said it was the only one with ‘the guts to tell it like it really is’, adding: ‘Prohibitive laws are denying readers and fans the right to know the unvarnished truth.’
The rumours are prevalent on the internet, but publications in England and Wales remain gagged.
Miss Wood famously had a threesome with Manchester United and England star Rooney and her friend while the player’s wife Coleen was pregnant.
She claimed the actor booked her for an afternoon sex session – in which she used a sex toy on him – through an escort agency in March 2010.
Miss Wood described how he arrived without his wedding ring before having a shower in her room. ‘He came out of the shower naked. I asked him if he wanted a massage and I gave him one,’ she said at the time.
‘He turned over and he was a disgusting kisser. He kissed like a virgin.’
She says she offered to use a sex toy on him and he ‘eagerly agreed’. Afterwards, he left without leaving a tip, but he did recommend a local restaurant, she claimed.
The actor is understood to have confessed to his wife after fearing the news would leak out.
The ex-escort compared the ‘barmy’ legal situation to that of the other married celebrity, who has spent £1million battling to stop details of his threesome with another couple being published.
The Supreme Court will decide imminently if he can be named after the Court of Appeal overturned his gagging order – but meanwhile the rest of the world knows who he is.
Miss Wood told The Sun: ‘I read about the other injunction involving a celeb threesome and an olive oil bath and have seen the name everywhere on the internet.
‘It’s strange that the rest of the world knows who these stars are but newspapers in the UK can’t report it.’
The 29-year-old, who is no longer a prostitute and who won Celebrity Big Brother last year, said the man who paid her for sex has used his family to boost his own career.
She said: ‘He tries to come across with this persona as if he’s some fantastic family man. I don’t think a fantastic family man sleeps with escorts.’
Since the star obtained the High Court injunction, the wealthy actor has ignored a deluge of rumours on social media and continued his career as if everything was normal.
He has attended glittering functions with other actors and given celebrity interviews about his life and work.
The actor has basked in the adulation with his glamorous wife, slipping an arm around her and posing with a smile for photographers.
The philandering star has given publicity interviews – in which he mentions his family – to promote his work and attempt to boost his audiences.

When he ran to the courts to hush up Miss Wood’s kiss-and-tell claims to The Sun, Mr Justice King agreed the actor – whom he described as ‘a world-famous celebrity’ – had a reasonable expectation that his sex session with Miss Wood was private.
At the time friends of Miss Wood, of Bolton, the daughter of an academic, claimed her relationship with the actor was well known.
Jenna Hughes, 24, a former nightclub friend, said: ‘It has been common knowledge up here for a while now and it really doesn’t come as a surprise to us.’
A friend named only as Hayley said: ‘The blokes she has these flings with should really know better. She is the ultimate kiss-and-tell, and people in the public eye should watch their back. More fool them, I say.’
The latest case means people around the world will know all about the sordid claims, but UK publications still cannot publish the details.
Of the gagging order, John Hemming, the former Lib Dem MP who exposed footballer Ryan Giggs’s infidelity in the Commons in 2011, said: ‘I hope the courts recognise it is hopeless, these King Canute-style attempts to hold back the tide of information.
‘They are also implicitly threatening 50million ordinary Britons with prison, because everyone is covered by injunctions … The result is judges abusing State power merely to create a society in which people, especially those with money, can live a lie with impunity.’
Bob Satchwell, of the Society of Editors, said: ‘The American media is making a mockery of our system of justice.’ He added that UK courts were ‘granting orders which they cannot enforce’.
Lawyer Mark Stephens, of solicitors Howard Kennedy, added: ‘It’s getting increasingly ridiculous. This actor’s extra-marital activities were widely known among the chattering classes … but ordinary folk were kept in the dark.’
Supreme Court judges are still considering whether a different married star who had a threesome with another couple will be named.
An injunction protecting the married man was overturned a fortnight ago by the Court of Appeal, which ruled that widespread online and global coverage meant the affair was now ‘common knowledge’.
But Supreme Court judges said the Press blackout in England and Wales should continue while they decide if his appeal should be allowed. No timescale was given for how long they will take.
The anonymity order was branded a ‘farce’ after the celebrity’s name was published in Scotland, the US, Australia and online.
A survey carried out by MailOnline found that one in five people in England claimed to know the name of the star, who has two children with his spouse, who is also famous.
Ryan Giggs’ family-man image was left in tatters five years ago when he tried to hush up an affair with model and Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas.
The former footballer secured an injunction to stop his name being made public – despite his identity being common knowledge online.
It then emerged that he had been sleeping with Natasha, his brother’s wife. The affair apparently began in 2003 and continued while Stacey was pregnant with their children, now aged ten and 13.
Giggs even paid Natasha £500 to abort his child weeks before she married his brother. Mrs Giggs apparently forgave her husband after the revelations.
The Manchester United star is now facing one of the largest sporting divorce payouts in British history – after his wife finally ran out of patience with his womanising ways.
Stacey Giggs, 37, stood by the former Manchester United player, even after he had an affair with his brother’s wife.
The footballer, 42, also spent £150,000 on a controversial legal battle to hush up his affair with a glamour model. However this week it emerged that his wife now wants a divorce, and he stands to lose half his £40million fortune.
Former prostitute Helen Wood’s fury over ‘stupid s**g’ who sold her story they had had a threesome with Wayne Rooney
Former prostitute Helen Wood has opened up about her infamous threesome with footballer Wayne Rooney – branding the other woman who sold their story to a Sunday newspaper a ‘stupid s**g’.
The former Big Brother star has previously admitted to ‘regretting’ the sexual liaison with Rooney and Jenny Thompson ahead of the South Africa World Cup in 2010 and has now claimed she would have taken out an injunction if she had the money.
She also revealed her fury over her former friend Ms Thompson ‘selling her out’, calling her a ‘stupid s**g’ for going public with details about the scandalous sex session.
Appearing on Sam Delaney’s News Thing – an ironic chat show broadcast online once a week – she said: ‘In my situation it was taken to the papers by the stupid s**g that was involved.
‘She didn’t even need to say my name, I begged her, I said ‘can you just meet me halfway and say it was just you’, and she couldn’t even do that.
‘£15,000 and she just sold my name like that. I just think it’s f****** bad. Why do they do it?
‘Why do people have this intention of s******* someone, and the next morning thinking I’m going to make some f****** money off it. You already made enough money off it.
‘I just don’t get that mindset of jumping into bed with someone and thinking I’m going to f*** this person and then sell it the next day. It’s weird.’
Miss Wood was discussing her view on injunctions in light of the recent gagging order taken out by an A-list actor to prevent news of their sexual encounter – for which he paid £195 – being published in the UK.
Asked if she is a fan of injunctions, Miss Wood said: ‘Mixed opinions really.
‘I think everyone should be able to have them, I don’t think it’s fair that only rich people are able to have them, for obvious reasons, because if I’d had the chance I’d have definitely f****** got one but I didn’t have a spare £50,000.
‘So why is it alright for some people to be named, and others not?’
Hosted by Sam Delaney, each episode of News Thing features a panel of comedians or ‘political guest’ discussing contemporary issues and taking a ‘sideways’ look at the news of the week.
