How's your summer going? Is your soul getting sucked out of your eyes by your LED screen while everyone you know is currently on some far flung island, photographing their hotdog legs? Well, be prepared to endure some more (particularly well-dressed) Instagram-induced FOMO. Turns out French It girls Jeanne Damas and Lamia Lagha are currently frolicking in Zaghouan, Tunisia in matching print dresses, and Leandra Medine is wearing a bold pattern on a yacht and forgot to send the invitation. Then there’s the gaggle of models and socialites, such as Adwoa Aboah, Suki Waterhouse, and Georgia May Jagger, who have traveled to Mexico (or as they have dubbed it, #Sexico) in honor of Cara Delevingne's birthady. And like any good...

Yes, Beyoncé Had a Better Date Night Than You

@BEYONCÉ INSTAGRAM

Beyoncé went out earlier this week with Jay Z in Los Angeles. And while paparazzi had some photos of her out walking, the best view of her date (and outfit featuring ample Supreme merch and retro Barbie-esque shades) comes from Bey herself.

Black Women Using Ancient Healing Methods As Resistance

hd-aspect-1501099660-apothecary-header
On Instagram, #selfcare makes for good content. Users have tagged over 2.5 million posts—acai bowls, atmospheric candles, yoga mats, green juice—with the hashtag. Over 75,000 people are practicing it on #selfcaresunday, and more than 25,000 photos bear witness to the fact that #selfcarematters. And it does; marginalized populations have performed self-care for centuries in the face of systemic oppression. But the term, whether it refers to critical activist work or a kind of spiritual nourishment, suggests that it's possible to practice care on our own. The truth is we exist in matrices of allies and friends who do this work for us. If we're honest, it isn't #selfcare. It's #squadcare. This week, ELLE.com scholars at Wake Forest University go deep on just...

The Best Fashion Instagrams Of The Week

1
Summer seems to be expressing itself through hot-hued clothing this week, and on Instagram, red was the warmest color of them all. Slick Woods emanated attitude in a fiery off-the-shoulder knit dress; to top it off, she wore scrawled-on sneakers to match the graffiti-ed door behind her. The rapper Future also looked cool as ever in his red tracksuit with white sneakers, leisurely flying on on a private jet. Offering a more polished take on the color, model Anna Mila posed in a vermillion ‘70s-style suit with a McDonald's yellow button-up. And for those still hungry for more of the red-hot red Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration, Tabitha Simmons was the envy of every hypebeast in a monogrammed hoodie. (Something...

Bloggers Are Loving This Brand’s Summer Dresses

image
Think about what you’ve worn the last couple of weekends. If you’re anything like us, it’s been dresses on dresses. Sure, there have been some bathing suits and shorts in the mix, but when you’re running out to meet friends for lunch or heading to the beach, nothing screams 'Out of Office' like a simple A-line number, or a wrap-waist frock with a flow-y skirt. For petite girls, though, it can be tough to find a throw-on-and-go dress that fits the chest and waist, and hits at the proper length. But, we’ve noticed a bunch of bloggers are living in Petite Studio's on-trend gingham and bright floral options, items that are made particularly for, you guessed it, petite frames. And while...

This Beauty Blogger Is Under Fire For Her “Chocolate Challenge”

39de6e59a07104a2c96ea0c293d32dd4-480-1500403486
Beauty blogger Vika Shapel decided to start a YouTube makeup trend that she coined the "chocolate challenge," and it's going viral for all the wrong reasons. Shapel, who is not black, recently posted a photo on Instagram of her and a friend with half of their faces painted dark. They took the half-face "chocolate challenge" a step further by adding bright eye shadow and false lashes, and changing their eye color to brown. Commenters are calling out the photo as a glaring example of blackface. “Something fun is coming to YouTube, idk if there is a challenge like this but we haven’t seen it so Im calling it the chocolate challenge!" Shapel captioned her Instagram photo, which has since been deleted. "Come watch us...

Smashbox’s First U.S. Flagship Is Like Finishing School For Beauty Bloggers

landscape-1500312377-elle-smashbox-boutique-opening-venice-2-1
America's first Smashbox flagship isn't just somewhere to visit when you run out of mascara. The new Los Angeles store is equal parts retail space and photo studio; a blinking neon playground designed to be Instagrammed. There's a sparkly lip-shaped swing, a 3-D lipstick printer, and a build-your-own gloss bar (Smashbox's answer to free gift with purchase). Everything is content. According to global brand president Beth DiNardo, the Venice location will host daily theme parties ("Transformation Tuesdays, Swipe Right Saturdays") offering visitors the opportunity to experiment with makeup and take pictures using pro-lighting, backdrops, and props. "If you buy a certain amount of products, then you're getting your makeup done, you get a headshot, and we give you a link to...

00-lede-best-instas
By now, news of the canceled Louis Vuitton x Supreme pop-ups have made the rounds—but you’d never know by looking at Instagram, where celebrities have certainly been showing their love for the collaboration. First up was Drake: The emotional crooner known for his sleazy-chic style sported a monogram denim jacket, appropriately accessorized with a large wine glass. Lady Gaga also gave a digital shoutout by donning a red coat, leather rucksack, and weekender bag to rep the capsule. Those weren’t the only logos popping up on our feed this week. Curro Verdugo posed for a mirror selfie toting an emerald green, floral print Gucci bag that took up nearly a third of the frame, while Hailey Benton Gates displayed some...
