The Holiday festive campaign has been revealed! Creative Officer and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Bailey directed this romantic short film starring the charming Romeo Beckham. With music by Ed Harcourt, how could you not fall in love with the scene, the music and the brand. The classic Burberry check scarf paired with the iconic trench coat partake in a sensual yet edgy dance number under a London backdrop. I’ve been working for Burberry for a month now, and everything I’ve loved about the company from the beginning — I still do now. I can see myself growing with the brand and I’m so grateful for the opportunity. It’s going to be a magical holiday season for the company as well as my location, we’re making Burberry history. x

Everyone has their own opinion as to what is pretty. Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2014 has been revealed; and Beyoncé graces the cover. As an artist, shooting for Time Magazine was an important achievement for her because she’s acknowledged for her influence on culture over fashion and beauty. With that said, Time announced the launch of her latest social media campaign, #WhatIsPretty alongside her new single, Pretty Hurts. The song emphasizes the importance of confidence among young women. To me, pretty can be defined as many things. Someone may have a pretty face or a pretty soul and/or spirit. Being pretty isn’t only on the surface, not to sound cliché but it’s about what’s on the inside as well. What Beyoncé has done for women around the world with her most recent album, that is pretty. Being different, original and authentic to one’s self, that is pretty. The song says, perfection is the disease of a nation and as women we fall victim to society’s standards of what is portrayed to be beautiful. The most groundbreaking moments in the video, are when Bey shatters all her trophies and when she lost the competition. I say this because as a black woman I shouldn’t feel subjected to be thin to work in fashion and that even the classic beauties can be beat out by a different type of beauty. There are many classifications and all women fall under their own category. I thank Beyoncé for this movement and I encourage everyone, guys and dolls to join the conversation. Hashtag ‘WhatIsPretty’ on your social media handles. x

After receiving negative comments regarding his album cover, Pharrell surprises the world by making dancer, Khadija Shari his version of Marilyn Monroe. So many people missed the whole concept of the cover which pertains to the music he’s created. Knowing when to pick his battles, Pharrell addressed the backlash by simply stating that there actually is a black girl on the cover. But because she’s of light-skin complexion, she wasn’t accepted as being “black enough”. Others may think that Pharrell selected Khadija as a publicity act, but it doesn’t matter. The album was created for women. Period. Knowing who Pharrell is and what he’s about, it’s absurd to think that he doesn’t like black women, whether she’s dark or light. Who are we to judge if he prefers the latter?
Watch below as Pharrell celebrates all women in his new video “Marilyn Monroe.”
All my 80s and early 90s babies who remembers Cher Horowitz is going to absolutely love this video. Iggy channels Cher’s fashion accurately while highlighting our favorite memories. I completely geeked seeing Dionne’s funky hat and Cher’s modern digital closet. I’m not a fan of Iggy’s music though, as if!
This is so f*cking cute.
