    When I think of the word ‘icon’, Nina Hagen is always one of the first people who comes to mind. She was crazy, sexy, a constant sartorial risk taker, and always truly authentic, which tends to be a common feature in the really stylish: it seeps out of their pores,

    The Best East Asian Beauty YouTubers

    Reclaiming History’s Greatest Women

    Who inspires you? It’s a relatively simple question, but for women this question can be tinged with sadness. While there are so many iconic women that we should be greatly influenced by, they are so often overlooked or at times completely wiped from history. As humans, we all look

    Alternative Style Icons: Divine

    I’m sure I’m not the first person to describe Divine as a force of nature and I definitely won’t be the last, but she was just that. You are smacked in the face with her look, her charisma; her very presence omits energy, it’s explosive, so

    Pearly Kings & Queens: The Real Royal Family

    To have not be exposed to some sort of royal wedding news this year would have pretty much been impossible. Personally, I’m not a fan of the royals and yet I could barely go on the internet for the days around the nuptials between Harry and his American bride

    Cruelty-free Korea: 2018, the year K-Beauty goes cruelty free?

    A Tribute to TV Classics of the 90s

    In my opinion, one of the best TV decades was the 90s. Okay, sure, we do seem to be in a bit of TV renaissance at the moment, producing one critically acclaimed TV show after another, and while that’s great, sometimes you want something a bit trashier and bit

    Anxiety Self Care Tips

    Alternative Style Icons: Angelyne

    Before Paris, before Kim - or before the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan - there was Angelyne. The mysterious LA staple made herself famous for being famous, through the subtle tactic of billboards. These billboards, which at one point numbered in the hundreds, have become as infamous as their subject matter.

    Kim Kardashian: Reality Star. Snake Oil Salesman. Saint?

    Kim Kardashian has always been a pretty divisive figure, but love her or hate her, there is no denying her influence - especially after the monumental meeting with President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner, where she sought clemency for sixty-three-year-old great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced in 1996 to

    Alternative Style Icons: Pat Butcher

    Developing your personal identity can take years, and while experimentation and trend watching is fundamental, your personal choice of style icons is also crucial. Now, from my perspective, a true stylish individual is never someone who says Chloë Sevigny or Kate Moss is their ultimate style inspiration. I mean duh,

    East Asian Makeup Trends

    So, we have written about East Asian (particularly Korean) skincare on Fashion Fix Daily before, and while we are obsessed, the make-up world has some gems too. While we are bombarded with Western-style makeup trends from heavy contouring to cut creases, what are the trends sweeping the other side of

    Alternative Style Icons: Siouxsie Sioux

    She became the icon of Goth girls everywhere, a mantle she didn’t accept or relish, but nonetheless Siouxsie Sioux is synonymous with goth style, even being referred to as the ‘godmother of Goth’. From her beginnings within the world of Punk, and as part of the of the ‘Bromley
