Georgia took to the water in her matching Calvin Klein workout gear after a gruelling game of volleyball.

Debuting a new brunette hairstyle, Georgia showed off her incredible figure as she posed in the pool.

23-year-old Georgia had earlier been seen clutching a ball while chatting on the phone.

Making the most of the winter sun, Georgia went barefoot as she larked about in Dubai.

In the time since being on this year’s series of Love Island, Georgia has still been on the lookout for love – and briefly appeared to find it with fellow participant Sam Gowland.

However, after just a few weeks of dating, Georgia announced that they had gone their separate ways – even suggesting that Sam had cheated on her during their romance.

Sam has now joined the team of Geordie Shore, and has moved on from Georgia with MTV favourite, Chloe Ferry.

Georgia meanwhile, has been connected to radio DJ Roman Kemp – after the pair met at V Festival and then his Faces nightclub in Essex together.

Georgia met Roman the day after confirming her split with Sam, telling fans “for some men one girl isn’t always enough.”

I Just Want To Wear Sweat Suits to Work — Is That Too Much To Ask?

I have long been a proponent of function over fashion. Maybe it’s my total aversion to physical discomfort, but I just could never get behind spending the limited time I have on this earth with sore feet, or pants that make it hard to sit down, no matter how good they look. In fact, I would literally spend my life in a series of rotating sweat suits if only it were socially acceptable.

And I’m not saying that I roam the streets and workplace in my desired uniform (a.k.a. sweats and/or flannel pajamas). I’m a savvy enough person to know that my preferred choice of clothing would do more harm than good for me professionally (if not outright get me fired). So at the office or on any official business I stay within the expected and even “fashionable” arena. But I also know that the second I get home I’ll be changing into clothes I actually want to be wearing, and I know this is generally true of most everyone else I know.

So why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we, as thinking, rational creatures create a code of conduct that actively doesn’t feel good? Many people will argue that formal business attire increases worker productivity. But the actual consensus on this is hazy at best, and there has never actually been a single scientific study that supports it (and just ask the infamously casual yet immensely productive tech culture of Silicon Valley for some anecdotal evidence to the contrary).

I’ve also heard people say it’s a matter of self-respect. That the way you present yourself to the world is a reflection of how you believe others should treat you; that taking pride in your appearance is a way of showing pride in yourself. And to this I can only muster a half-hearted “meh.” I often feel just the opposite. I generally don’t care what others think of my style choices or appearance because I have self-respect and pride from within. I’m confident in what I have to offer when it comes to my mind and my ability to articulate my thoughts. Shouldn’t that be the better measure of self-love?

And others have just said, “Hey — at the end of the day, we’re animals, and we want to look attractive. It’s the most natural thing in the world.” My first response to this is simply, wait — isn’t the workplace one of the spaces we definitely shouldn’t be worrying about how attractive we are? And furthermore, I’m sitting here in front of an electric box that connects me with millions of other living souls, getting ready to file my taxes, and thinking about how I need to remember to pick up Drano for my shower. I think it’s safe to say we as humans have moved far passed the “we’re all just animals” stage of existence. I don’t buy that we’re all just slaves to our instincts or don’t have it in us to overcome “animalistic” tendencies.

So why do we do it? Why do we — myself included — consent to put ourselves through daily discomfort when we could literally all be working in a mecca of velour suits with elastic waistbands and cozy slippers? I genuinely don’t know but am curious what others think. And in the meantime, I’ll be the one at my desk waiting for the workplace revolution to come, Snuggie at the ready.

Don’t Sweat the Sweat Stuff

So Eva Mendes set the intertubes ablaze a few days back in an interview with Extra when she said: “You can’t do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!”

The implication: Keeping boyfriend (and father of her newborn) Ryan Gosling happy means avoiding the elasticized waistband.

Further implication: The elasticized waistband suggests an added need for comfort.

Further further implication: The added need for comfort suggests the behavior that an entire generation of women used to refer to as “letting yourself go.”

And finally: that said “letting yourself go” is the presumably Hershey’s-syrup-written handwriting on the wall.

A few things to point out:

1. Eva Mendes has a sense of humor. If you didn’t get this from the actual interview clip, you can get it from the fact that she went on to post on Instagram: “Dear favorite pair of sweatpants. I was just kidding when I said you’re the #1 cause of divorce. Everyone knows that orange crocs are the #1 cause of divorce. Either way it was a bad joke and I feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.”

2. Many of the people responding to her original statement do not seem to have a sense of humor. Cases in point — Facebook comment 1: “I hope I never feel the need to wear makeup and nice clothes 24/7 to keep my significant other happy.” Facebook comment 2: “Yet, she still can’t get Gosling to marry her. She’s so full of herself it’s gagging.” Furthermore, so you know it’s serious, Fox News brought in not one, not two, but three talking heads to take on the issue.

3. Yes, the notion that women need to stay physically attractive to men in order to “keep them” is an outdated, sexist trope, perhaps put most succinctly by the 1963 Hal David lyric: “Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make-up, soon he will open the door. Don’t think because there’s a ring on your finger, you needn’t try anymore.”

4. YET. There is something to be said for not taking a spouse’s interest for granted. Keeping the sexual spark alive is crucial to longevity in a relationship — perhaps especially in a marriage — but it doesn’t just depend on looks, and it isn’t just a one-way street.

While the pages of history and fiction are disproportionately filled with admonitions to women, men received plenty of warnings, too. In 1913, a British author named Blanche Ebbutt wrote in her book Don’ts for Husbands: “Don’t sit down to breakfast in your shirt-sleeves in hot weather on the ground that ‘only your wife’ is present. She is a woman like any other woman. The courtesies you give to womankind are her due, and she will appreciate them.”

Three years later, in his book How to Love, Walter Gallichan wrote: “There is no hope for widespread married happiness till men learn that love is the art of understanding and pleasing women… After marriage it is the husband’s part to show his aptitude in arousing and maintaining the responsiveness of the wife.”

And even the humorist Ogden Nash got semi-serious in a 1935 poem he wrote to a friend about to marry:

“If you desire a noisy nursery
And a golden wedding anniversary,
Scan first the bog where thousands falter:
They think the wooing ends at the altar.”

In 2015, women shouldn’t be held to a higher standard than men in keeping themselves attractive; they should, naturally, be valued for more than their appearance; and should of course be encouraged to wear whatever makes them comfortable. On the other hand, in 2015, all people in their rightful convictions might strive to be just a little more flexible — as flexible, say, as an elastic waistband.
