Jealousy between female friends is getting a new outlet.

A new study from a photo book website in the UK has revealed a trend in women ‘sabotaging’ friends with unflattering photographs on social media sites.

A quarter have uploaded an unflattering bikini photograph of a friend, knowing their friend would be unhappy.

One in four admit to having committed bikini photo sabotage, a study by a photo book website has revealed.

Furthermore, just under half claimed to have uploaded a picture of a friend in an unflattering outfit and two fifths admitted to having revealed photographs of their friends with no make-up on.

When asked why, a third claimed that the friend in question had done the same to them.

Rebecca Huggler, co-founder of, commented: “We wanted to look into women’s relationships with the photographs they upload. To see that so many women deliberately commit ‘photo sabotage’ and upload unflattering pictures of friends is surprising.”

Ascot hat turns heads

Artwork which inspired the most talked about hat at this year’s Royal Ascot has gone on display in Meadowhall.

A vibrant fusion of fashion and art, the Ascot hat was designed by acclaimed milliner Hayley Marsden and was inspired by the work of British artist Louise Dear. At 3ft tall and 3ft wide the headwear caused quite a stir on Ladies Day.

It was commissioned by Castle Galleries, who have a branch at the Sheffield shopping centre.
