The Nike Cortez Is Getting Another Makeover

landscape-1502812912-alc-nike1

In an effort to continue shoe of summer domination, Nike has teamed up with Andrea Lieberman, celebrity stylist and A.L.C. founder, to reimagine the Nike Cortez in three luxe new colorways.

Cortez by A.L.C, $100; see nordstrom.com for on-sale details

Lieberman has styled her ready-to-wear collections with the Nike Cortez for six seasons, so it's no surprise the brand looked to the designer for a reimagining. "I'm a '70s kid, so I grew up with the famous Farrah Fawcett Cortez poster on my wall and the iconic shoes on my feet," she says. "The Cortez have always slid right into my wardrobe. Through the '70s, '80s, and '90s, I wore them very casually, pairing them with jeans and a tee...

She’s Like A Rainbow

landscape-1502766269-elle-shes-like-a-rainbow
I got slammed for not wearing makeup for my wedding. "Trust me, you'll want to, like, even things out for photos," said one friend a few weeks before the big day, her eyes darting to the archipelago of faded blemishes on my cheek. "You're not gonna wear any foundation?" another asked anxiously. (I did end up going barefaced—but with smudgy eyeliner and my lips dabbed with Lip Smacker Dr. Pepper Lip Balm, the most fresh-to-death hint of color in all the land.) Turns out going sans foundation when your skin is less than perfect is puzzling to girlfriends and maybe even regarded as a bit like airing one's dirty laundry in public. Yet the stir my almost au naturel look caused is nothing compared to...

Clam Toasts With Pancetta

Clam Toasts With Pancetta

Shellfish and pork are a power duo. The salty-sweet pancetta soffritto is the backbone of this clam toast (a kitchen favorite during tastings). This recipe is from Hart's in Brooklyn, our #5 Best New Restaurant 2017. You have roughly a 73% of seeing someone from the Bon Appétit staff at the restaurant, eating this dish, if you go.

Ingredients 2 SERVINGS 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling 2 ounces pancetta (Italian bacon), finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, 2 thinly sliced, 2 whole ½ medium sweet onion, finely chopped ½ small fennel bulb, finely chopped, plus ¼ cup fennel fronds 2 wide 3-inch strips lemon zest 1 bay leaf ½ teaspoon ground fennel 1 cup dry white wine, divided 2 1½-inch-thick slices sourdough bread 1 pound Manila or littleneck clams or cockles ¼...

Why Bella Hadid Rarely Smiles In Photos

landscape-1502714803-bella-not-smiling

Bella Hadid will admit that when posing for photos, she purposely avoided smiling for a long time—and not because of her mood. "I feel uncomfortable, sometimes, smiling in front of the camera," she told The Guardian. "It actually took me until probably this year to really understand my face."
But her serious red carpet photos don't really capture how approachable or cheerful she really is, she said. "People meet me sometimes and say: 'You're so different to what I expected.' People always tell me I seem mean or intimidating on social media. But I really love engaging with new people."

See The Most Colorful Street Style At Copenhagen Fashion Week

Photo: Nabile Quenum

Copenhagen is known as one of the happiest cities in the world — despite the reputation that Danes only wear black. This week, Copenhagen Fashion Week inspired the opposite: People wore lots of color on the streets.
Photographer Nabile Quenum saw bright-red cross-body bags (and a great orange Balenciaga mini bag), fuchsia sock-heels, and lavender sweaters peeking through unbuttoned khaki dusters. The beauty looks were just as colorful: jewel-tone eye shadow, rosy lips, and sparkling eyebrows.
Hygge, the trendy Danish word for coziness, was apparent in some casual outfits, like oversize dress-shirts and athletic shoes you’d find in your dad’s closet. Click ahead to see how Danes do Copenhagen Fashion Week off the runway.

11 Things You Didn’t Know About Birkins

1502473125-gettyimages-526201534-1499281199

While you may already know that the Hermès Birkin bag was named after the French style icon Jane Birkin, and that waiting lists to buy the pricy purses can be years long, there is much more to these handbags than meets the eye.

It takes 48 hours to make a Birkin.

1502473149-gettyimages-476947418-1499284082

All Birkins are crafted by a single artisan in one of the brand's workshops. It takes each artisan 48 hours of work to create a single bag.

There are around 200,000 Birkins in circulation.

1502473160-gettyimages-74847953-1499284082

Hermès no longer takes special orders for the bag, and customers must wait for Birkins in the shades they desire to arrive in stores.

You can rent one for the...

Are Mom Jeans Actually Made For Moms? One Mom’s Investigation

landscape-1502472776-elle-index-mom-jeans
I believe myself to be able to maintain a healthy distance from the tides of fashion. In recent years I've said no to ubiquitous trends like moto jackets, which scan too costumey on me, and "cold shoulder" tops, which I fail to comprehend on an aesthetic or conceptual level. Did that leave me with approximately seven shouldered tops to contemplate purchasing in the past year? Absolutely. I won't give in. But don't mistake this obstinance for a need to be different; I'm quite content to look like everyone else when I like what everyone else is wearing. Take, for example, my rising fascination with the popular, and somewhat broad, category of denim labelled as "mom jeans," which imbue their wearers with...
