You may not be familiar with Marissa Webb, but you definitely know her work.
The former creative director of Banana Republic is well on her way to becoming a household name. Her eponymous label, in fact, is as sophisticated as the work-appropriate brand but with edgier, more modern appeal. Think oversized oxford shirts with a sheer back or pin-stripe culottes paired with a delicate, lace shirt. At both times, pieces seem just as strong and structured as they do delicate and sexy.

The British chef is no stranger to speaking out against the health craze—yes, against—previously telling the BBC that she thinks “the notion of ‘clean eating’ is an implication that any other form of eating is dirty or shameful.” And now, she’s back at it and slamming the continuous trendy diet term that is currently making the rounds.

The husband of a New York City police officer who was killed on 9/11 says he has returned his late wife’s “Woman of the Year” award to Glamour, calling it a “slap in the face” after the publication presented the same award to the I Am Cait star.
