Theresa May Talks Shopping for Herself in New Vogue Profile [Vogue]
Tucked into the very end of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Vogue profile — which details everything from her Brexit plans to her relationship with Donald Trump to how she met her husband — is a brief paragraph devoted to her style and personal shopping habits. May revealed that she has no personal style advisors and prefers to shop at a small boutique near her constituency. Though she is a fan of many British designers (including Amanda Wakeley and Daniel), she does not feel restricted to them. “Look, throughout my political career, people have commented on what I wear,” said May. “That’s just something that happens, and you accept that. But it doesn’t stop me from going out and enjoying fashion. And I also think it’s important to be able to show that a woman can do a job like this and still be interested in clothes.”

However, in a new article on The Cut, former employees have come forward to accuse Agrawal of sexual harassment. Employees have alleged that Agrawal invaded their personal space, shared nude photos “of herself and others,” discussed her sexual exploits, expressed her desire to enter into sexual relationships with her employees and joined video conferences both while unclothed in bed and while on the toilet.
