I don't even know where to start with the perfection of this shoot.

Those eyebrows; that skin; the asymmetric eyeliner (hello new weekend go-to); the wet-look hair; the gorgeous single earring; that bustier jumpsuit.

Beautiful. Simple. Perfection.
I want in.

More gorgeousness after the jump.

Everyone seems to be marching at the moment. Protesting for their own rights and for the rights of others. They are brilliant, impassioned and brave individuals who are coming together to make a difference.

It's truly, amazingly powerful to see.

But, what happens if I don't really want to march? If I don't want to be vocally active in my protest?
Does that make me any less of a feminist, any less entitled to hold an opinion? Or does that mean I can't call myself a feminist at all?

The exchange of it.
The need for it.

The feeling of possessing it.

A woman's need for power: a power over men; a power over themselves.

Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre depicts a woman's ultimate search for power.

Hedda believes that the cure for her boredom is to feel more powerful.

But, in reality, acquiring an illusion of power just results in Hedda feeling more powerless.

There are endless power struggles taking place across the world, some downright crazy (see: Trump), some worrying (see: Brexit) and others just totally unknown.

2017 looks set to be a rather challenging, unsettling but also exciting year. 

Change isn't always a bad thing, and nor is a transference of power. 

But, as the unimitable and downright awe-inspiring Meryl Streep advised us all in her speech at the Golden Globes, power needs to be used with caution, by all those who find themselves in posession of it.

So let's be more like Meryl.
Be aware of your power and those you use it around.
Be aware of those exerting their own power around you.

Be aware.

There's a resolution for you.
