There is a scene in the 2006 rom-com film The Holiday where Jude Law’s character is attempting to entertain his children by becoming ‘Mr Napkinhead’. Said ‘Napkinhead’ is brought to life when Law throws a white linen serviette over his face, and wears his glasses over the top, causing the kids to shriek with joy.

It’s all fun and games when miming at the dinner table, but what about during a heatwave in the middle of the global coronavirus pandemic, when we’re all attempting to wear our now-compulsory face coverings with our sunglasses at the supermarket?

Wearing sunglasses with a face mask presents an incredibly strange sartorial challenge for anyone who isn’t used to wearing the combination (face coverings, of course, have been common for centuries in many cultures). To the uninitiated, though, it’s a look which means you can’t see any element of

After months in isolation, British and European royal families have bravely emerged from their guarded estates to lift the spirits of their beleaguered countrymen one photo op at a time. In England, Kate Middleton has dyed her hair again; her honey-rooted strands and measured princess waves signal that she’s back to business. 

Queen Letizia of Spain, too, has embarked on a tour with her family, meant to “boost morale” and perhaps distract from continuing news reports about her husband’s father’s allegedly shady finances.

Alexander P. Ary

Not that you wouldn’t already be impressed by the styling and quality of images below, but for some context, we asked on-the-rise musician Maad if she would be interested in producing a quick at-home photoshoot to accompany her interview. She excitedly agreed, and the rest is history. What we expected was an assortment of creatively posed looks taken on an iPhone, maybe a friend’s camera, but what we got was a four-look, high-quality, full-blown photoshoot that was all executed at Maad’s home with the help of just one close friend. Now that you’ve been filled in on how impressed we are with the photos below, it’s time for me to brag even further about this artist.

In her short time being a solo artist, singer and songwriter Maad has released 2 EPs: Lé Funk in 2017 and Technicolor in 2018. The genre of her music is difficult to put in
