“I believe that wearing red lipstick is the most feminist statement a woman can make in five seconds flat.”
I don’t know about you, but when I layer on my favourite red lipstick (Urban Decay’s Vice Matte in the colour "Bad Blood"), I feel like I can conquer the whole world! And rightly so! Lipstick and make-up represent a form of female empowerment and expression. Bold lipstick is the 21st century equivalent of a power suit, rebellion in a tube against the "demure, feminine" and, let’s face it, narrow beauty standards that are held in such high esteem by our society.

Last Friday night, hundreds of students flocked to Lower College Lawn in anticipation of a night full of gambling, ice cream, and dancing. The DRAFP Committee threw their annual ball with the theme of The Seven Deadly Sins, which is the largest hall ball of the year. In accordance to the theme many attendees came dressed in different shades of black (wrath), red (lust), and green (envy).

The evolution of power dressing

We have a lot to thank the 1980s for; rock music, the rise of Apple enterprise, Madonna’s debut but most importantly, it was the introduction of the “working woman” era. Great strides had previously been made in the crusade for women’s rights, which enabled the women of the 80s to leave behind their more "traditional" homemaker lifestyles and enter the working world.
St Andrews Fashion Festival, STAFF, made its debut on Saturday at the Byre Theatre. Featuring clothes from four boutiques around town, STAFF gave St Andrews a sampling of what we may see walking into any of the featured stores.
We all know Label for being “an organization that runs body positive performances”, as written on their website, but more than ever their first fashion exhibition of this year made a statement about the fil rouge that connects all their projects: inclusivity.
