    So allow us to honour England’s overlooked exports and a few of the things that truly are just a few things that make us truly proud to be British.

    Here are just eleven:

  • Jennifer Lawrence Grows Out Pixie Cut Hair Into Short Bob Hairstyle

    The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actress debuted her new longer locks on Good Morning America in New York

    She shocked fans when she chopped off her hair into an edgy pixie cut at the start of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo trail.

    But Jennifer Lawrence seems to have had a change of heart as she debuted her new longer hairstyle over the weekend.

    Jennifer Lawrence showcased her new longer cut as she arrived for Good Morning America over the weekend [Splash]The 23-year-old US actress has grown out her pixie cut hairstyle into a short, choppy bob that we’ve fallen a little bit in love with.

    Oscar winner Jen looks gorgeous with the newly grown-out style - that falls just below her ears - framing her face beautifully.



    Jennifer Lawrence teamed her longer locks with a Phillip Lim skater dress [Splash]Her naturally blonde hair has been dyed into a brighter hue while her mousey roots are more visible with the newer, choppier style.

  • If there is one thing women love, it is a good old moan. For most of us, getting things off our chest is up there with shopping and chocolate.



    The Everyday Sexism Project indulges this need perfectly. Set up by its wide-eyed founder Laura Bates to 'catalogue instances of sexism experienced by women on a day to day basis', it is an online forum for women to moan about men. Guardian readers can’t get enough of it.

    Laura says: "by sharing your story you’re showing the world that sexism does exist and is faced by women everyday".

    Except they aren't showing the world anything; women visit - have a moan and leave feeling better. It is like the hairdressers except you don't get better hair. The Everyday Sexism Project doesn't actually solve anything - there is no remedy offered, no cure prescribed. It is a repository, nothing more.

    If these women are sharing anything, it is a skewed world view where every man is a threat and women are the perpetual victim. A wolf whistle offends their air

  • Kate Middleton Wipes Prince George's Drool On Her Designer Dress And Proves She's Just Like Us

    The teething royal got a little over-excited when meeting his namesake bilby at Taronga Zoo in Sydney

    Well someone has to wipe the royal dribble and the nanny had the day off!

    Kate was on drool patrol as she, Prince William and Prince George visited Taronga Zoo [Getty]

    Kate Middleton might be a Duchess now but she proved she’s just like any other young mum this weekend when she and Prince William brought Prince George to Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

    The young family was being given a tour of the bilby enclosure at the Australian zoo where they met George the bilby, who was named after the young prince.



    Human George got rather excited when he came face to face with the furry marsupial.

    The Duchess of Cambridge was caught short when teething Prince George started dribbling and had to wipe the royal chin with just her hand, before subtly wiping it on her custom made designer summer dress.

    It was a classic mum move that will no doubt further endear her to the public as she proves she really is just like the rest of us.

  • The only reason we'd swap outfits at Easter would be if we'd smeared chocolate down ourselves.



    But Kate Middleton probably didn't need that excuse to get changed three times on Easter Sunday as she continued her Australia and New Zealand tour with the family.

    The young royal opted for three quite different looks as she headed to church, then the zoo and to the airport - and managed to get it spot on with all of them.

    Opting for a more formal attire at an Easter Day service in Australia, Kate oozed elegance in an Alexander McQueen dove grey coat and hat by Jane Taylor. Copyright [Rex]

    First heading to St Andrews Cathedral for an Easter Service, the 32-year-old looked the picture of elegance in a dove grey Alexander McQueen coat dress.

    She finished off the appropriately smart look with a simple tan clutch bag and a hat by milner of favour Jane Taylor.

    Our favourite look of the day - and what Kate does best, effortless sophistication.

    A trip to the zoo warranted a more casual ensemble, with Kate choosing a yellow broderie-anglaise sundress and simple tan wedges. Copyright [Rex]

    Later on, Kate changed things up by slipping into something more practical for a trip to the zoo with husband Prince William and baby George.

    To ensure she could move more freely, Kate donned a pale yellow broderie-Anglaise tea

  • Happy Birthday Victoria Beckham! 40 Of Her Most Iconic Looks

    From Posh Spice to Chav WAG to Fashion Icon

    Victoria Beckham turns the big 4-0 today and while she's probably not munching down on a Colin the Caterpillar cake like the rest of us, we're sure she's celebrating in her own way.

    As the fashion designer hits this momentous milestone, we decided to take a look back over her most iconic fashion moments.

    Ever since the Spice Girls (literally) burst on to the music scene in 1996, Posh Spice has always been inextricably linked with fashion.



    From her love of little black Gucci dresses to that PVC outfit in the Say You'll Be There video, Victoria was always the most sartorially minded of the group.

    In the years after Girl Power, Victoria's style took something of a nose-dive as she single-handedly invented Chav Couture.

    Everything that we came to think of as tacky and 'chavvy', guess what? Posh started it.

    Trucker caps, dodgy hair extensions, perma-tans - Victoria got there first.

    By 2009 Posh had turned her back on the garish fashion of her youth as she embarked upon her lifelong dream of
