10 Performance-Enhancing Gym Hairstyles From Spring Runways

elle-workout-runway-hair-1-1511305715

Hair often feels like an afterthought at the gym—pull it back and go—but if competitive athletes are any indication, workout hair might actually affect your performance. Professional boxers are required to secure hair with "soft and non-abrasive materials" according to the Women's Boxing Association. For gymnasts, hair must be pulled back away from the face so as not to obscure vision. And female Taekwondo competitors are required to wear long hair in a bun or a ponytail to prevent snags. Of course, taking the time to get overly done up for a workout is probably going overboard. These runway styles strike the balance.

How To Dress For Thanksgiving If You’re An Early Bird (Or Night Owl)

00-promo-thanksgiving-day-to-night
There’s nothing quite as nice as waking up to the savory smell of Thanksgivingdinner being whipped up in the kitchen. But sometimes that dinner is served before 2 p.m.—an early-bird custom followed by many American families this holiday season. While a Thanksgiving meal can really be had day or night, different times call for different outfits. For the brunchtime turkey eaters, perhaps a chic pair of pj’s or a silk robe and velvet slippers is best. In the afternoon, jeans and a turtleneck or a button-down blouse will certainly fly. For those willing to wait until dinnertime (after 4 p.m.), something a bit dressier is probably in order. Whenever your friends or family choose to sit down and chow down, there’s...

The Webster Brings Siz Stories Of Chic To NYC

543a5247-1510956329

Winter looms around the corner for New York, but founder of The Webster Laure Hériard Dubreuil is bringing a little Miami warmth to the Big Apple, opening a new location of the luxury boutique in a stunning SoHo location.
The shop has rebuilt an entire building at 29 Greene Street, creating six floors from scratch with 98 designer labels for men and women. Custom furnishings and décor—including wallpapers from the 1920s and ‘30s—help accentuate the charm of the site, which was constructed in 1878 until it burnt down years ago. The result is incredibly opulent—the intricate patterns and lush textures throughout the new store are accentuated by the moody lighting and bright open windows.

Rihanna Just Proved ‘Bath-Leisure’ Is a Trend

20-vogue-paris-rihanna.nocrop.w710.h2147483647
All trends begin and end with Rihanna. In October, the superstar told us that Instagram is where “trends go to die.” But on Monday, she shared not one, but three covers for Vogue Paris, and — whether she meant to or not — solidified in the process a very important fashion trend: wearing a towl. Or “bath-leisure,” as we’re calling it. In a cover image photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Anastasia Barbieri, Rihanna casually wears, around her head, an orange, printed towel from the Emilio Pucci spring 2018 collection. This makes her the third celebrity to wear terry cloth in public this month. Rita Ora made headlines when she went to the MTV Europe Music Awards a few weeks ago in a terry cloth robe and...

These Are The Only Fresh Tomatoes We’ll Buy Out Of Season

roasted-cherry-tomato-caprese
Buying a regular ol’ tomato in January is the ultimate form of self-deprecation. You know what you’re signing up for before you even slice that out of season tomato open. You’re signing up for a pale, watery, flavorless, shitty tomato. And by doing that, you’re declaring that neither you or your dinner are going to live up to your potential. You’re better than that, and so are we. That’s why the only fresh tomatoes we’ll buy out of season are cherry tomatoes. Yes, cherry tomatoes. Not the big heirloom ones. Not grape tomatoes either. Cherry tomatoes, the variety that grow well in greenhouses, in the depths of February-inspired seasonal affective disorder. As a general rule, you’ll have better luck buying smaller tomatoes out...

We’re Callin’ It: These Are The Best 5 Hairstyles For Long Faces

hairstyles-for-long-faces-1511216101

I’mma be real with you for a sec: This hairstyle-for-your-face-shape thing is not at all necessary for any human being in the world. Because the haircut and style that’s going to look best on you is the one you feel most comfortable wearing, and that almost never comes down to a scientific, geographic formula.

BUT, not everything you know is a complete lie, because there are certain haircuts and styles that are, technically, more visually appealing to the eye, thanks to angles and lines and the maths of the world. So to get you inspired for your next cut, we turned to our favorite celebs, below, for the hairstyles that look especially excellent on long faces.

Kendall Jenner Beats Gisele Bündchen to Become World’s Highest-Paid Model

landscape-1511283376-kendall-gisele

Congratulations are in order for Kendall Jenner, who has become the highest-earning model in the world, according to Forbes.
The 22-year-old tops the list for the first time, ending the reign of Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who, for the first time since 2002, is not at the top of the list.
Jenner earned a cool $22 million over the past year, which the money magazine estimates comes down to her earning potential through her huge Instagram following, as well as deals with Estée Lauder, Adidas, and La Perla.

5 Training Tips From Victoria’s Secret Bootcamp

landscape-1480982439-victorias-secret-workout-2

When hairstylist Martin Christopher-Harper lost 40 pounds in three months, he spread the word to his clients and friends, some of the most sought-after models on the planet. The catalyst behind Harper's transformation was New York City personal trainer Kirk Myers, whose own best work is himself, having once tipped the scale at 300 pounds.
"He wanted to send this one specific girl, Jasmine to train," Myers remembers. The "girl," Victoria's Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes, wasn't looking to lose weight, but Myers' hyper-precise spot-training moves resonated with her.
