The House of Windsor has no shortage of jewelry. At state dinners, royal weddings, and other formal affairs, the royals are known for trotting out some of the most stunning necklaces, earrings, and—of course—tiaras.

For Fashionable Fans: 15 Pieces of ‘Bridgerton’-Approved Jewelry

Bingeing Bridgerton may be the one thing from 2020 we can welcome into this year. Shonda Rhimes’ Regency-era Netflix drama series debuted on December 25, 2020, but the obsession is still very real. It could be your first time watching Duchess Daphne played by actress Phoebe Dynevor fall for the Duke of Hastings AKA actor Regé-Jean Page or third going on fourth time through the first season.

Fashion Week looks very different this season, with most designers choosing to present their collections through digital lookbooks and short films instead of traditional runway shows. But even after the pandemic subsides, New York Fashion Week isn’t likely to revert to its prior form. As BoF senior correspondent Chantal Fernandez reported in a BoF Professional article last week, the “unbundling” of New York Fashion Week has been happening for years.

Women as warriors have a long history

Note: This is the fifth essay in a series on Notable Women

The American experience with true women warriors—not just our wonderful Hollywood Wonder Woman—has only recently begun. However, with the benefit of recent archaeological discoveries and re-examinations, we can say that women have been warriors—or certainly hunters—for millennia.

When the U.S. ended the draft in 1973, women represented only 2% of enlisted personnel and 8% of the officer corps. Today the figures for the officer corps are significantly higher across almost all services. As of 2018, women represented 19% of the Army officer corps, 19% of the Navy’s, 21%

Ask Amy: Woman in startup should strike out | Lifestyle

Dear Amy: I work for a small entertainment startup, consisting of five cisgender white men. I got in on the ground floor during the pandemic.

As the only female and youngest/newest member, I’ve felt undervalued and excluded, despite being the only one with a four-year degree.

So far, I’d brushed these concerns aside because of my youth and lack of experience.

However, two weeks ago, politics came up and I realized that several of my co-workers (who are also co-owners) have beliefs that fly in the face of social justice, such as denying the existence of white privilege and calling
