Celebrating suicide only shows ugly face of fashion
Why is fashion such an ugly, ugly business?

Well done Andrea Begley. She went and won The Voice fair and square.
Of course, it's hard to know what really goes on in any marriage behind closed doors. But it's quite easy to know what's going on outside a London restaurant.
Just because it's Brian Sewell ...
One of the many irritating features of Northern Ireland is our passion for lecturing other countries. Our unions gathering at City Hall to indulge in anti-Semitic diatribes and pro-terrorism causes elsewhere contrasts with the equally thick 'plague on all your houses' approach they bring to domestic politics.
Maybe it's because the sun is out, the garden is looking lovely and my cat Gissing is purring contentedly under the summer seat but today I feel like saying, "Hurry on up, leaders of the G8, this isn't a bad wee place."
Perhaps it's time to come out and admit that Mike Read might have had a point all those years ago. You'll remember how Read made himself a national laughing stock when he tried to get Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Relax banned from the airwaves. Oh, how the sophisticates sniggered at the hapless DJ.
Just what has Pippa Middleton done to deserve the tidal wave of vitriol that washes towards her every time she is unwittingly papped in the street.
It really is very simple. If a paedophile with a criminal record (or without one) was appointed as a Special Adviser (or Spad) to a government minister, the difficulties of that would be easily visible.
The Belfast-based crime series The Fall may be grabbing all the headlines, but another TV crime drama outstrips it for me.
For a woman whose defence was that she was easily cowed, double murderess Hazel Stewart certainly seems to have a neck of purest brass.
It's every woman's worst nightmare – to be walking home late at night when Nick Ross leaps unprovoked out of the shadows and starts shouting his mouth off about rape.
It's one of those images that has changed our sensibilities for good. The footage of the Woolwich suspect – as we have now absurdly to refer to him – wielding a meat cleaver, hands red with blood, discoursing with the owner of the mobile phone filming him, is beyond anything we have seen on British TV.
It's sexism, Jim, and much as we know it ... While JJ Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness has generally drawn positive reviews and even warp-speed box office returns, the film has had to put up a critical force field over the gratutitous scene of Alice Eve (yes, Trevor Eve's daughter) in her space undies – which look surprisingly like contemporary ones (push up bra and teeny tiny panties).
Sheryl Sandberg says that it's ok for women to cry in the office – "I cry at work" – adding that women are not "one type of person Monday through Friday" and "then a different person in the nights and weekend. I think we are all of us emotional beings and it's ok for us to share that emotion at work".
Sometimes life's just inexplicable. Take poor Ryan Dolan.
There used to be a phrase in Northern Ireland to characterise those who carried out non-political illegal activity. Remember "ordinary decent criminals"? They were burglars, car thieves, muggers, TV licence dodgers, double do-ers and spivs. Fair enough, it's a wide moral compass to the word "decent" but we got the point.
Stephen Hawking is either a hypocrite or a fool. How else can you explain his decision to boycott Israel?
So Rolf Harris had been arrested months before but it only came out a few weeks ago to a chorus of speculation but no charges yet. The release of his name to the press was never formally sanctioned but no one seemed overly bothered about the fact he hadn't been charged, the moment traditionally when two things happen – the suspect's identity enters the public domain and public comment ceases until the trial.
What is it about Olivia Colman? Everybody likes her. (And quite right too.)
A man snared by an internet "paedophile hunter" after being duped into believing he was meeting a young girl for sex took his own life just days after police had questioned him.
A same-sex couple who lost a legal fight to marry eight years ago will become the first in the UK to have their union legally recognised.
A young man who demanded MP Nigel Evans resign after allegedly sexually molesting him was told "it can't be done" before the general election by the Tory chief whip, a court has heard.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon fears midfielder Nir Biton and winger James Forrest could both be facing extended periods on the sidelines.
Ireland winger Aiden McGeady admits it is inevitable that he will suffer abuse from the Tartan Army when he returns to Scotland for the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Wayne Rooney admits he would grab the chance to be captain of Manchester United and England "with both hands".
Joan Collins and Dominic West were among a host of stars who celebrated the success of youngsters who have turned their lives around thanks to the Prince's Trust - by posing for a selfie.
Coldplay unveiled some brand new songs as they headlined the opening night at the iTunes Festival at SXSW.
Krysten Ritter has praised Jennifer Lawrence for being a "beautiful actress".
