Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2021: See The Best Looks

I’m sorry, did basic betch Emily from Emily In Paris show up to France and suck every inch of taste from the whole damn town?

England’s women look back on bright summer but bigger tests await

England’s clean sweep against West Indies may have been handed to them via two no-balls from Shakera Selman at the end of a rain-reduced five-over slogathon, but they will be pleased with their showing in the series after easily winning the first four matches by margins of 47, 47, 20 and 44 runs.

Any concerns that Heather Knight’s side might be rusty after a six-month absence from international cricket proved largely unfounded, thanks partly to the unexpected opportunity for England players to take part in the first two rounds of this summer’s regional competition, the Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy, three weeks before their series was due to start.
