Emily Blunt: Enter a new leading lady

Emily Blunt: Enter a new leading lady / Cinema


For fairly obvious reasons, most of them to do with rhyming slang, Emily Blunt loathed her surname when she was growing up. “It was like a curse to be called that as a child,” she groans. “Names like ‘Blunt pencil’. And that led on to the unimaginable - or the imaginable - as I got older.”

Sherlock Holmes is back…

As for the survivors, they’re milestones from their manufacturers.

Fall 2010 Trends

Fall 2010 Trends / For women


This season’s fashion risk-taking is measured—but in a good way. Instead of cartoon-like volume, we got big graceful trousers, and in place of unwearable textures, we scored lush and yummy velvets and knitwork. In fact, some of our favorite themes were in fact really old ones, only this time tweaked and tailored just enough for us to see their allure in a new way.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth / The UK


Elizabeth Tudor is considered by many to be the greatest monarch in English history. When she became queen in 1558, she was twenty-five years old, a survivor of scandal and danger, and considered illegitimate by most Europeans. She inherited a bankrupt nation, torn by religious discord, a weakened pawn between the great powers of France and Spain.

transforms the landscape. At this time, broadleaved trees lose their leaves to conserve water throughout the winter months.
