FAVE 5: Polished In Plaid | Clozette


Plaid has always been a versatile fabric. From Scottish Tartans to the famous Burberry nova check print to schoolgirls' skirts, plaid has a way of inserting itself across styles and cultures. For this week’s Fave 5, these Clozette girls put a twist on the pattern by styling it in ways that take it from classic to current.

Cheers to Monday! Looking for ways to amp up your start-of-the-week attitude? Fill up with some exciting news like MAC Cosmetics teasing a Princess Jasmine-inspired makeup collection, and a 16-year-old nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, all here in today's Insider Roundup. 


A Princess Jasmine makeup collection is launching soon



In line with the full trailer release of Disney's live-action adaptation of Aladdin, MAC Cosmetics teased that a Princess Jasmine-inspired collection is coming soon and we are so here for it. Launching on 16 May, just days before the release of the film in theatres, it will come in a full range, from eyeshadows to blushes to a gorgeous lip product, all reminiscent of the princess's style and signature beauty look. 


What were you doing at 16? 



Sixteen-year-old Greta Thunberg has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and she's starting to make us rethink what we were up to at that age. The Swedish student and activist is being recognised for her efforts in fighting global warming and calls for action on the growing climate crises. If she wins the prize in her category, she will be the youngest Nobel Prize recipient, taking over Malala Yousafzai, who got hers at 17 for documenting life under Taliban rule and advocating for women's rights and education.

Louis Vuitton pulls Michael Jackson-themed pieces from its collection



Following the release of the documentary Leaving Neverland, which lays out two alleged sexual and child abuse cases against Michael Jackson, Louis Vuitton announced that it is pulling themed pieces from its collection showcased last January at Paris Fashion Week in honour of the King of Pop. Virgil Abloh, LV designer for menswear, stated, "I am aware that in light of this documentary, the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights." The Michael Jackson estate has previously filed a suit against HBO regarding the allegations made in the documentary. The estate claims, "HBO has disparaged Jackson’s legacy by airing a one-sided hit piece against Jackson based exclusively on the false accounts of two proven, serial perjurers." Still, this didn't stop the damage that the documentary has caused for the King of Pop's legacy and this act from LV may just be the beginning.

Here's a question: do you love wearing dresses? Because we do. For one, dresses are fun, flirty, and playful, yet can also be formal and elegant. They're also easy to deal with, delivering a well put-together look minus the effort. Then there's also variety. Aside from the various cuts and structures they come in, colour also plays a huge role in the entire feel of these fashion pieces. And sure, choosing a solid and bold shade is enough to channel the appeal that you're going for, but why settle for one when you can go for twice the fun?


If you're a dress fanatic like us and the rest of the Clozette Community, here are a couple of looks that would make you want to shop for two-toned dress ASAP.
