Lauren explains the significance of wartime for women and how these dark points through history sparked radical change for the future for Vogue’s Style column.
There are so many experiences that deeply connect us all humans alike - like sadness, boredom, sweetness, or gloom. None are better, worse, or worth more than the other, but all are the mysteries of experience that we can enjoy everyday. Lauren teamed up with her buddy Stacey Cotter to dive deep into the present moment for Vogue Australia.
Chez Vogue Australia this week Lauren talks about banishing the sartorial anxiety that is ’fear-of-missing-out’ to embrace the wardrobe that is utterly you.

It’s a fact, contouring is the word of the moment for us women, but is it going to be forever relevant?

What’s to come at The Brooklyn Circus this fall are some kicks that will put up a meaty fight to canvas shoe category, with that great BKc promise to rep the history books in all American style.
