"If it takes longer than 15 minutes don’t do it.” https://t.co/Oz9to7ComJ— The Cut (@TheCut) August 27, 2017
· At the Edinburgh International Book festival, Zadie Smith told the crowd she doesn't allow her 7 year-old daughter, Katherine, more than 15 minutes in the mirror after noticing her daughter spent so much time focusing on her appearance. She told her daughter that she is "wasting her time" & pointed out that Katherine's brother Harvey doesn't do anything besides get dressed before he leaves the house.
· Her comments inspired accusations of makeup shaming and internalized misogyny while some Twitter users suggested Zadie is too conventionally attractive to criticize time-consuming makeup regimens
I feel that women like A. Keys and Zadie Smith know good and damned well that their looks/aesthetic are praised— Mary Swagdalene (@MissZindzi) August 22, 2017
I adore ADORE Zadie Smith, but urgh, I hate this. Not least because she is so outstandingly gorgeous, she maybe can't so much 'get' it?— Tomato Pie (@mostlymartha) August 27, 2017
· A couple of places - namely Fashion magazine & Feministing - came to her defense & Vogue posted a beauty guide to help you obey Zadie's 15-minute rule
