Bringing Back Barrettes

Since 2018 the craze of funky hair clips and Barrettes has progressed more and more

What started out as just a mere trend on Instagram found its way onto the runways ranging from Versace to Chanel,  but its been the bedazzled slogan Barrette clips that Is catching everyone’s eye and becoming the talk of the town.

The small accessory is usually worn at the side of the hair to give the look some personality and especially in the generation that we live in, getting something that is small and full of authenticity where we are able to define ourselves amongst others.

A-list hair stylist Justine Marjan says ‘We want to wear our hearts on our sleeve, express our feelings through our style and make a statement,’.

‘I love that all the pieces can be worn together so you can spell out different sentences to create a unique statement that you want to share with the world. I honestly find it so inspiring to see how they can be tailored to suit each person and their own personal style.’

In a way its as if every say you’d change your whatsapp or Facebook status but by having these slogan barrettes it allows you to be able to not have to physically say it but it will be heard by many.

The fact that something so minimal has since been included in a part of fashion week to be seen as something whilst strutting down the runway to make a Statement to the clothes being worn and how they’re worn is a sign at just how influential Instagram as a whole really is.

The amount of followers doesn’t appeal to everyone anymore its a matter of aesthetic and how the feed is that really catches people and makes them stop take a look and share.

Recurring style never goes out of  fashion there will always be someone who’ll interpret it in a different way or someone who’ll make it look completely different to how you do. Take gossip girl character Blair Waldorf she wore thick headbands and funky colourful clips for 6 entire seasons.

Make your style your own by buying yourself a pair:

Dubai denies R Kelly claims of having shows lined up.

 The Dubai government media office denied claims of R Kelly having concerts and shows lined up for April 17th to April 19th alongside a scheduled meeting with their royal family.

The American R&B artiste who is currently facing 10 aggravated sexual abuse charges involving three girls and a woman has petitioned a court in Chicago for permission to travel to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates so he could perform.

R Kelly pleaded non guilty to all his charges saying he has never abused anyone in is life and entire career.

His lawyer Steve Greenberg told the Chicago Sun Times ”he needs to be able to work like anyone else who is free on bond, and the law need to be adaptable.”

R Kelly appealed to the judge to lift his travel ban as he was ordered to surrender his passport in order to sort out his child support and other miscellaneous bills.

On Sunday, Dubai’s government denied claims that the singer had concerts and show  scheduled to be performed three to five shows between April 17th to April 19th.

The Dubai government media office issued a rare statement saying  “Authorities in Dubai have not received any request for a performance by singer R. Kelly nor are there any venues that have been booked.”

Steve Greenberg also claimed that a meeting with the Dubai royal family was scheduled as well, the Dubai government media office also denied this claims  saying  “he has not been invited by the Dubai royal family for a performance.”

Steve Greenberg insinuating there might be a misunderstanding in contract wherein he wanted to clear things out by replying in an email saying

“Mr. Kelly had a signed contract with a legitimate promoter, and any information that was included in the motion to travel was from that contract. “We did not say he was invited by the royal family, but the contract did provide that he would make himself available to meet with them.”

His lawyer explained to the media that his bills and expenses are rising at an alarming rate due to the charges he’s currently facing in a statement

”If you can’t play a show, if you can’t go out on tour, [and if] they’re not streaming your music anymore, obviously you’re going to have financial problems.”

The Glitz, The Glam. Kim Kardashian

The reality star stepped out head to toe in glitter in Frances capital making quite the Statement.

Its not unknown to the world that the life of a Kardashian is luxurious, from their TV show to their social media with dedicated fans following their every move.

Kim (probably the most famous of all the sisters) isn’t one to shy away from what people say about her style, she will wear what she wants and somehow pull it off.

The multimillionaire and her family are well known for there erotic fashion styles that they clothe themselves with and know it has a profound impact on the way the media persieve and interpret it.

This isn’t the first time shes gone out and instantly shocked the world with one of her outfits or any of her sisters too, just recently her younger sister Khloe stepped out in something very similar striking a sexy pose for Instagram.

The way i see it is the fact that they have a certain following allows them to wear there things that most wouldn’t dream of wearing, let alone posing on red carpets. Which leads me to believe that in order to survive in the Hollywood industry you have to be a fearless business and fashion mogul.

here are a few looks that have been on a headline or two

There was this number she wore not so long ago which led to some debate whether she had tipped off her outfit to the clothing site Fashionova which came out in less than 24 hours with a dress that almost replicated the on she had on.  

Kim has shown us how to rock high fashion outfits whilst heavily pregnant and its fair to say she isn’t afraid of wearing these types of clothes and receiving the backlash that she so regularly receives from critiques and Fashion crazed fans.

Her younger sister Kendall and Kylie Jenner have also had their fair share of the spotlight, just a couple months back the number Kendall wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars after party had everyone in a frenzy.

The now highest paid model wore no underwear to the event on the left hence the drape between her legs to keep her somewhat classy.

It seems as though the way the Jenner/ Kardash clan dress seems to stem solely from Kim as it is clear that Kylie and Kendall share a resemblance in the way they dress and business ventures with Kim.

Although as they have all gotten older Beauty Mogul Kylie Jenner has become more and more like her older sister aside from her 1 Billion dollar grossing company Kylie Cosmetics. Another venture that screams Kardashian not only with success but in the manner in which the company was produced.

So given the Kardash clans success we shouldn’t be surprised if more people try to emulate there ever growing legacy on the beauty industry.

Here’s a few of the public’s opinion on the matter:

Are Instagram models being provocative to secure more likes?

Instagram models are known for posting stunning pictures and leaving people with their jaws dropped.

But their are some instances where some pictures are just a bit too raunchy for even the brain to process that kind of erotic imagery.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Most of the time these images are received with positive feedback because people love anything taboo but lets be honest these are images that you would definitely not be showing around the dinner table with family but acceptable with a group of friends.

It begs the question, why is that?

Is it due to body confidence and the acceptance of everyone’s body that the world is slowly but surely trying to take in or is it because Instagram models know how to balance on the fine line of pornographic images and a public excuse to love their bodies.

These images get thousands if not millions of likes and maybe that’s the point to entice the viewer or follower to follow them and constantly be an active liker and commenter on the models pages to secure their instagram algorithm.

The follower holds out on the hope of seeing more images similar to those seen before and henceforth frequently visiting the Instagram accounts, like an addict.

But these sort of images can also cause anxiety for people who aren’t comfortable with their body.

Statistics say that body anxiety mostly affects men. Four in five men ( 80.7%) stress about their body and appearance. And only 78% of women suffer from body anxiety.

Some people may see this as great motivation for people to begin a healthy life style and get physically and mentally fit but it can also have a negative impact if taken too far and out of hand.

Breaking Silence: ”I was getting sold online”

A victim of modern day slavery, human trafficking, rape and money laundering has broken her silence.

Sharon goes into detail about how she was trafficked and what happened to her during her time of enslavement.

Sharon  became a close friend to a human trafficker who made her false promises and preyed on her vulnerability.

Below is the full interview

https://soundcloud.com/user-101404774/victim-interview

Due to being evicted, she was ‘forced to move out and offered accommodation by the traffickers, thinking that they were genuine friends’.

It then became obvious that the hospitality and generosity was taking a sharp turn for the worst.

‘I was forced into non consensual sexual activity by my perpetrators, and subjected to violence.’

Also, a significant amount of money and personal belongings were taken from Sharon without her consent.

Whilst enslaved, Sharon was sold online for sex and trapped at a flat in Aldgate East.

With her possessions gone, and no phone to contact her, Sharon was missing for a month.

The main 3 perpetrators were 2 males and one female who pretended to be her best friend.

This was a planned crime and the friendship was a type of grooming to gain Sharon’s trust.

‘They were near me all the time, I had to always have eyes on me and they locked me in the house”

Fortunately enough, Sharon managed to make an escape after a month by lying and saying she ‘was taking out the bins’.

When she had her chance, she made a run for the nearest train station in Aldgate and went straight to the police.

In 2017 over 5000 people were referred to British authorities as potential victims of slavery – up one third from 2016 https://bit.ly/2HOJ7pH

Cases of modern day slavery have nearly doubled in the past year according to the Salvation Army’s most recent report

Human trafficking, and prostitution has been sought as a way of manipulating and grooming vulnerable individuals.

In 2015, the Government implemented the Modern Slavery Act with a view to stop crimes involving trafficking and forced labour and eradicate modern slavery.

According to Anti-Slavery International, UK nationals make the biggest group of potential victims of slavery.

For those affected by this issue there are a number of organizations that are made to help support victims.
