As is often the way when it comes to fashion, what’s old is new again: Vogue Italia‘s January 2020 issue is replacing its usual glossy photographs and editorial fashion spreads with illustrations. The reason? To reduce the environmental impact of photoshoots; BY MADELEINE CARLISLE
“This is the first time Vogue has done this since the introduction of photography in its pages in the early 20th century,” Condé Nast, Vogue‘s publishing company, said in a press release on Jan. 3. “The purpose of this rather bold move is, simply, to be more sustainable.”

On the promotional circuit for her upcoming movie Marriage Story, Scarlett Johansson has repeatedly been asked about her own, uh, marriage story. And while she’s understandably reluctant to dish out all the details, she did spill a little about how her fiancé, Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost, proposed. “He killed it,” Johansson said. “It was a very James Bond situation.” So: tuxedos, martinis, and a scary dude with a razor-tipped bowler hat. [ET Online]
Scarlett Johansson, 34, opened up about how Colin Jost, 37, popped the question! “It was very personal. It was a special moment…he killed it,” Scarlett revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, Oct. 17. “But yeah, I was surprised. Even if you kind of imagine what that moment’s gonna be like, it’s still beautiful moment.” Scarlett and Colin — who appears on Saturday Night Live as the co-anchor the sketch series’ long-running “Weekend Update” segment — got engaged in May after two years of dating!
Mr Ellwood ducked repeated questions about his future, but attacked the claims that the UK could prosper if it tried to “run away from the EU”.
Speaking on Sky News, he ridiculed the idea that “we are able to land man on the moon 50 years ago but we can’t sort out the Northern Ireland backstop”, insisting: “We can.”
Mr Ellwood added: “If we don’t do that than the Conservative party could be destined to be in opposition for an awfully long time.
“And that is the danger that I hope every one of my colleagues will wake up to – and of course the next prime minister too.”
The attack came as Mr Hammond revealed he would walk out even before Mr Johnson reaches No 10, saying: “I intend to resign after prime minister’s questions, before the prime minister goes to the Palace.”
David Gauke, the justice Secretary – another no-deal opponent – revealed he would also quit on Wednesday if Mr Johnson is the winner of the contest.
Other pro-EU cabinet ministers – such as de-facto deputy prime minister David Lidington and Greg Clark, the business secretary – are also expected to be sacked, or to quit.
Donald Trump says he’s trying to help A$AP Rocky as the rapper has been ordered to spend six more days in a Swedish jail while prosecutors investigate him over a street fight in Stockholm.
“We hope to get him home soon,” the president told a pool reporter on Friday, saying that First Lady Melania Trump had brought the situation to his attention.
Prosecutors requested more time for their investigation of the 30-year-old US rapper, producer and model, whose real name is Rakim Mayers. A district court granted the request.
Daniel Suneson, the prosecutor in charge of the case, said the court decided to keep A$AP Rocky in custody because of an alleged flight risk.
“This gives us time to complete the investigation,” Suneson added.
The artist’s lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, said the decision was expected but unfair, and that A$AP Rocky was innocent.
“He believes he was assaulted and has acted in self-defence,” Jovicic told journalists.
The detention of A$AP Rocky has gained widespread attention. More than 600,000 people have signed an online petition for his release, while fellow artists have also expressed their support.
Kim Kardashian called senior White House advisor and Mr Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner about the issue, after which Mr Kushner flagged the situation with Mr Trump, The New York Times reported citing a person familiar with the communications.
US Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Carl Risch met him on Friday and was due to hold talks on the issue with the foreign ministry and the justice department during a two-day visit to Sweden.
Karin Olofsdotter, the Swedish Ambassador to the United States, told TMZ her embassy has been in contact with the US State Department, members of Congress and the White House.
Asked what she would like to tell people who believe that it’s not safe for people of colour to travel to Sweden, the ambassador said in part: “I would say it’s perfectly safe and people are of course more than welcome. The more Americans who want to come to Sweden, the better.”
A$AP Rocky was detained on 3 July along with his bodyguard and two other members of his entourage in connection with a fight in a Stockholm city-centre street in the early hours of 30 June.
Before his arrest, he uploaded videos to his Instagram account of an altercation with two men, alleging they had followed him and his entourage and that he had not wanted any trouble.
The bodyguard was released without charge while a judge on 5 July extended the detention of A$AP Rocky and his two other associates.
The performer was in Stockholm for a concert and has had to cancel several shows in his European tour.
