7 Poses That Make Instagram Stars Look Unreal, Modeled By Iskra Lawrence

iskra-lawrence-1506528602

"Not everything is real, but you are. And being you is good enough."

Everyone knows many of the things and people you see Instagram are products of illusion. But ask body-positivity queen and model Iskra Lawerence, and she'll tell you it goes beyond filters and Photoshop: In a YouTube video and corresponding Instagram post that received more than 132,000 likes in a matter of days, she revealed seven common contortions that people — including models and influencers like herself — rely on to accentuate their assets, resulting in illusions that people can't possibly measure up to IRL.

Stranger Things' Shannon Purser and her stylist started looking immediately after nominations came out.

When it comes to red-carpet fashion moments, some require loads of planning and others come together instantly. For Shannon Purser, or the scene-stealing Barb from Stranger Things, the Sachin & Babi gown she wore to tonight's Emmy Awards was a bit of both. "When I saw that Shannon got nominated, I knew immediately to start looking [for dresses.] She's not the typical sample-size, so I knew I'd have to prepare and speak with some brands to discuss opportunities, especially in the custom realm," her stylist, Gabriel Langenbrunner, explained to ELLE.com. "I have so much respect for Sachin and Babi's designs, and before I was able to pitch them Shannon,...

So Thats’s Why Kim Kardashian Always Looks Like She’s Glowing

GETTY

The reality star dropped some beauty wisdom on her website.

Kim Kardashian is somewhat of a selfie master, who literally created a glowing phone case to always have perfect selfie lighting. But that doesn't explain why she always looks so picture perfect in everything from video livestreams to paparazzi snaps:

New luxury shopping apps offer a fresh spin on old-school service—straight-from-Paris fashion tips! Lupita’s own stylist!—from the comfort of your own couch. Alison S. Cohn swipes right

Jennifer has the kind of effortless no- makeup makeup and perfectly mussed hair that only Parisians can pull off. She pops up in a bubble on my iPhone screen like a Francophone Glinda the Good Witch, exclaiming “Bonjour!” and asking how she can help me today. This isn’t some kind of Her-style futuristic fantasy—Jennifer is a real person, not a sentient OS, and she happens to be my personal shopper for the next 45 minutes. She works for 24 Sèvres—LVMH’s virtual extension of the iconic Parisian department store Le Bon Marché that offers...

How Takesh Eyewear Became the Most Instagrammed Sunglasses of Summer 2017

SANDY KIM

Going one-on-one with designer Niki Takesh.

If you've spent any time on Instagram this summer, you will no doubt have stumbled across the sunglasses of the season: Takesh eyewear, founded by 25-year-old artist-cum-designer Niki Takesh.
The kitschy-but-cute Lolita-esque sunglasses—which come in five different shades from baby blue and red to rose-tinted lenses—are like a modern reinterpretation of the classic cat-eye lens, (something that's been a signature of Takesh's for years). "I've always had a thing for sunglasses," says Takesh, who's put her frames on the faces of all her BFF's already (Paloma Elsesser, Ruby and Lily Aldridge, and Atlanta de Cadanet Taylor), "I just really wanted sunglasses that were unattainable or nonexistent."

Are You Even Instagram-Famous If You Don’t Own These Sunglasses?

landscape-1503506773-v2-14
As a retort to the usually mocking meme format "In 2017, we'll have [done something tremendous] / 2017: [something tremendously stupid]," we actually do have cool stuff: We can shop on Instagram. Whether that's thumbing a photo to be transported directly to a website or seeing the same puff-sleeve top on various influencers until it enters your subconsciousness, social media factoring into the buying process is a thoroughly modern invention. Don't believe me? Think about the smaller e-tailers that show up on your Discover page—and what handmade linen dresses/vintage cardigans you might've bought from them. And take an inventory of this summer's greatest hits, including the much-copied shoulder-tie Reformation dress and basket bags aplenty, whose success can be owed to their...

Glitter Face Masks Are Coming To Take Over Your Instagram Feed

hbz-glamglow-glitter-mask-eye-1503513246

In an era where rainbow-colored unicorn makeup and '90s trend resurrection have become almost de rigeur, it's hardly a surprise that glitter has returned from the relative obscurity of music festivals and Halloween costumes. And while we've been loving the resurgence of sparkly products (and the slews of new techniques to make wearing them a little more country club than club kid) we're honestly a little shocked that nobody has thought to combine our favorite shimmering staple with another modern beauty must: the face mask. Until now, that is.

We love a glitter party! Say hello to #GLITTERMASK, a peel-off firming treatment (with NO leave behind!) launching in @Sephora this Holiday 2017. Serious skincare can be fun. #GLAMGLOW #HELLOSEXY GLAMGLOW(@glamglow)님의 공유 게시물님, 2017 8월 22...

This Korean Fashion Designer Is Taking Over Your Insta-Feed

image
In the age of Instagram, you can thinkyou haven't heard of a brand or designer, but in actuality, you've scrolled by (or even "double-tapped") his or her designs. Such is likely the case with Yune Ho, a Korean designer who got his start working for Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger. If you follow a handful of popular fashion bloggers, chances are you've seen his easy dresses and all-around wearable styles before and didn't even realize it. As you can see by the ahead #OOTDs, Ho has become known for tailoring beautiful items in luxurious fabrics that are perfect for everyday wear. His fall '17 collection, in particular, is all about deconstruction and reconstruction, and was (interestingly enough) inspired by plastic chairs. Intrigued?...

The Best Fashion Instagrams of the Week: Everyone is On Vacation, Supreme is Big in Russia, and Solange Takes a Mirror Selfie

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...
