Rihanna may not like how she looks in the allegedly unauthorized photo Topshop screened on their “Rihanna” tank top — in fact, she’s currently embroiled in a major lawsuit over it — but the UK fans that snapped it up before the retailer pulled it from their website certainly do. Here’s why that might not be such a good thing for the pop star.
Diana is on its way to the big screen, now that the eponymous biopic starring Naomi Watts has just been picked up for US distribution. With the news comes our very first official photo of the actress in the role of the People’s Princess. What do you think? Does the look do Di justice?
Guess sometimes it’s just a cobalt kinda day. That was certainly the case yesterday at this Hollywood screening of Isla Fisher’s new film Now You See Me, where the red carpet was turned many shades of blue (albeit not quite 50) by the guests’ ensembles.
When we heard that one of our all-time favorite magazines was launching in one of our all-time favorite countries, suffice it to say we were expecting something big. Sure, we may not be quite fluent in the language, and trudging through the longform pieces may have promised something of a challenge, but with Carine Roitfeld’s one-time rumored successor Virginie Mouzat in charge of fashion coverage, we figured we’d be in for some top notch content. Unfortunately, the debut cover isn’t much to write home about.
Ever wonder how absurdly wealthy folks blow off steam in the French Riviera? Well, it turns out it’s by throwing around hundreds of thousands of dollars to get unlikely couples to make out with one another. For a good cause, of course.
We don’t need to tell you that Gisele Bündchen looks stunning even without an ounce of makeup. But at last night’s private viewing of her series of photographs with BLK DNM founder Johan Lindeberg, she told us why that’s not the only part of going au naturel that she finds refreshing. We also asked her opinion on the epic internet debate of the week over the pronunciation of the word GIF: soft “g” like Gisele, or hard “g” like her sister Gabi (who was also there to fête the project)? Plus, see a GIF from last night’s party and find out the addictive hobby she’s just discovered.
You’ve got your bikinis, flip-flops, and sunglasses ready. You’ve found the best bronzer, nail polish, and lipstick to set off your soon-to-be summer glow. You’ve got your Jitney reservation — or train ticket, or car keys — in hand. Now the only thing left is finding the perfect bag to stow all that stuff in. And, because this is Memorial Day Weekend we’re talking about, why not make it something a little patriotic? We’ve found the best and most affordable travel bags so you can satiate your wanderlust in style.
With Summer just around the corner, we’ve got little white dresses on the brain. And who better to turn to for inspiration than some of the most fashionable famous faces? We’re talking about Jessica Chastain, Isla Fisher, Dianna Agron, Eva Longoria, and Kerry Washington, and the list goes on. The best part of breaking out the LWD is that it’s just so easy to style . . . with just about everything. From a classic white pump to a metallic sandal to a fun pop of color via a crossbody bag, it’s all fair game. Click through to PopSugar Fashion to see how 46 celebrities styled their LWDs, then put your own spin on it.
Oh….my. If Amanda Bynes didn’t like tabloids before, she definitely doesn’t like them now. The cover of this week’s In Touch loudly proclaims “Destroyed by Fame!” and, the real kicker, “First ever photos: Inside her wild home.” Apparently, Bynes invited a pair of photographers over for some late night partying recently, opening up her “drug den” of an apartment for the world to see. Now, she’s on one hell of a rampage (all over her never dull Twitter feed, natch), claiming the photos were faked and lashing out at the “ugly faced black man” who sold them.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? That seems to be Riccardo Tisci’s thinking for his fall 2013 Givenchy campaign, which revives last season’s all-in-the-family theme. This time, however, instead of Mariacarla Boscono and her brand new baby, he’s tapped a mother and daughter pair that can both don the line in Carine Roitfeld and Julia Restoin Roitfeld, along with muse Amanda Seyfried, actor Quim Gutiérrez, and models Mariano Ontañon and Dalianah Arekion. Get your first look at the ads right here!
And yet, naturally, all eyes were on her bump.
Even if you don’t know Lorraine Kirke by name, if you’re a fan of HBO’s Girls (as we most definitely are), you’ve seen her designs play a part in some pivotal scenes. And, of course, there’s the fact that her daughter Jemima stars as the bohemian, intermittently-employed Jessa. Lorraine is the proprietor of Geminola, a treasure trove of a West Village boutique filled with a panoply of her one-of-a-kind clothing and interiors, and she filled us in on her favorite decades to plumb for inspiration, her pretty, vintage-inspired summer collection, and if any of her three daughters wore Geminola to prom. Plus, she shared a family photo of the Kirke clan snapped this Mother’s Day!
One thing we learned Monday night at Glamour‘s “These Girls” event? Gloria Steinem’s favorite word is “fan-f*cking-tastic”. Another thing we learned? Well, a lot actually, since that was just the first tidbit of wisdom from an evening of hilarious, personal, and poignant monologues by Alexa Chung, Emma Roberts, Zosia Mamet, Dianna Agron, Lucy Punch, and Amy Schumer on being a young woman in today’s crazy world.
There’s nothing like stark white or a good old fluorescent to set off a summer tan, and it looks like the ladies of the French Riviera have been spending some time at the beach — or at least getting a very good faux glow. In today’s installment of Cannes Film Festival gorgeousness, see Kylie Minogue, Jessica Chastain, Sharon Stone, and a whole bevy of gussied-up models fête Cleopatra, Chopard, Bulgari, and more.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s modelizing ways are almost as notorious as his character Jay Gatsby’s shadier dealings, and at the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the 38-year-old actor was allegedly up to his usual tricks. Unfortunately for him, this time he didn’t bag the blonde he hoped for.
We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — so why not learn the rules when it comes to beauty? We wanted to find out the must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, Rebecca Minkoff lets us in on a minimalist beauty routine that’ll have you breezing through the summer months.
I may be from a city (Toronto) that’s little more than a hop, skip, and a jump away from New York, but the big, invisible border that separates one from the other means that I, like other non-citizens, can’t just waltz in and get a job at my local Starbucks. It also means that I, like hundreds of thousands of degree-holding, “highly skilled” businesspeople, computer scientists, and engineers, am lumped into the same category as fashion models when it comes to crazy-competitive US visas. “Huh”, you ask? Precisely.
Another day, another dose of red carpet eye candy from the Cannes Film Festival. In today’s gallery, we’ve got Zoe Saldana in romantic, regal Valentino, a bevy of models at a “secret” Le Baron fête, and Marion Cotillard in Dior so fresh Raf Simons was probably still packing up the runway version.
Move over Coachella — The Sound of Change Live is shaping up to be THE music event of the summer. And with good reason, since it benefits the Chime for Change campaign for women’s and girls’ empowerment and and, uh, boasts Beyoncé as a host and headliner. Now, none other than Madonna has added her name to the lineup.
Heidi Klum is quite the multitalented woman. In fact, now that we think of it, perhaps that’s why they picked her as one of the new judges of America’s Got Talent this season. In any case, the model showed off one of her more obscure skills yesterday on the set of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, belting out a yodel worthy of the Lonely Goatherd himself. And, because one absurdly attractive yodeler is never enough, she invited Bradley Cooper to join in.
