beyonce-cr-fashion-book-2014-2015-07-1514997564

Coachella has confirmed that Beyoncé will finally make her headliner debut at the 2018 festival, along with The Weeknd and Eminem.

Also playing the festival are SZA, St. Vincent, Cardi B, HAIM, and more. Details on the lineup are available here, and tickets will be on sale here on Friday, January 5.
Beyoncé's Parkwood Entertainment company and the festival's producer confirmed that the singer would headline the 2018 festival back when she canceled her 2017 headlining appearance due to pregnancy.
Most people won't have seen the queen perform live since her epic 2017 Grammys performance back in February (which she did while pregnant with Rumi and Sir, mind you).
Coachella will take place in Indio, California on April 13–15 and 20–22, 2017.

A Lesson On Beauty With Pat Cleveland

Photography Antonio Lopez

The world’s first black supermodel and legendary Studio 54 pin-up reflects on the changing face of makeup and the problem with diversity in fashion.
 

This article was originally published by i-D UK. At 67 years old, Pat Cleveland has lived an extraordinary life worth more than just a few biopics. At 16 years old she was told by agent Eileen Ford that she would never make it as a model. Not that it stopped her. Pat made history as the world’s first ever black supermodel, adored by everyone from André Leon Talley to Yves Saint Laurent. Shimmying down the runway and boogying in Studio 54, Pat will forever be immortalized in fashion history. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Disillusioned by...

Carol (2015)(Film still)

The perfect film fodder if shortening days and dropping temperatures are having an adverse effect on your wardrobe

With the festive season in full swing, it’s entirely justifiable to spend all day in your pyjamas caught up in onscreen drama and heart-fluttering cinematography. It’s also a good time of year to take sartorial notes from what you’re watching. Whether you’re in the mood for silver screen glamour, comforting knitwear, more glitter than a magpie’s nest or an outfit appropriate for sobbing in front of a crackling fire, here are ten films to help shape your wardrobe choices this Christmas.

1. Carol, 2015 Todd Haynes’ film has everything you could need. Department stores. Tartan scarves. A tense – and life-altering – road trip. Rooney Mara...

Screen-Shot-2017-12-14-at-3.13.44-PM-1182x630

A first look into potential greatness.

The film world can always use more stories about women—so the highly anticipated female-led Ocean's 8 film is more than welcome right now. Today, one of Ocean's 8 cast members, Mindy Kaling, took to Instagram to share the first official poster of the film, which is due out in theaters in June 2018, according to the actress. The forthcoming heist movie, which is an extension of the popular, typically male-led Ocean's franchise, stars the likes of industry royalty including Kaling, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Rihanna in one of her first leading roles. Though the cast has previously shared behind-the-scenes pictures on set and several shots from the film have been released, the poster is the latest insight into...

What Are The Most Searched Fashion Terms Of 2017?

1190500

Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.

With the end of the year fast-approaching, the time has come for all of those end-of-year round-ups. Along with the highest-paid models and the most liked brands on Instagram, new research by fashion search platform Lyst has now revealed this year’s most looked up terms. Taking the top spot was ‘power’, although maybe it referred to a lack of it? It could also be referring to the power suits and shoulders that we saw at Vetements, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga. Empowerment is a running theme in the list, with ‘woke’ coming in second place. After finding itself added to the Oxford English Dictionary this summer, activism also cropped up on the runway via Dior’s “We should all be feminists” t-shirts, as well as pro-black sweaters and that viral Frank Ocean tee. While you might think...

How Many Bottles Of Wine Does Your Dinner Party Need? Do the (Easy!) Math

BA BASIC AMIEL DINNER SCENE 4
Most people would say that the dinner is the most important part of a dinner party, but I would argue it’s having enough wine. You can pull a Tim Allen and turn a turkey into a wildfire, and no one will care if there are plenty of bottles to go around. Wine starts conversations, complements dishes (you didn’t burn), and keeps the party going. But how many bottles of wine are “enough wine”? To start, you need to know how many glasses are in a bottle of wine. This seems obvious, but considering we’ve all had nights where a whole bottle of wine equals two very large mason jars of Cab Franc while hate-watching Love Actually, it’s important to break it down. A bottle of wine is...

Opening Ceremony Threw A Raging Dance Party To Increase Voter Turnout

Photography Colby Blount/ BFA

In partnership with the grassroots organization, the brand’s rager emphasized how the 2018 elections could change the course of American politics. Oh, and there was pizza.

House remixes of 90s Janet Jackson, pork belly bao, and looks consisting of everything from vintage Raf Simons to waist-length pastel-grey braids. This is not what you would expect at your standard benefit (especially one involving politics). But, then again, Opening Ceremony isn’t really the kind of brand that does “standard.” Saturday night, OC partnered with Swing Left, a progressive organization working to increase voter turnout, to get the message out to New York’s young creatives: VOTE IN THE 2018 ELECTIONS. Understandably, a lot of hope and faith has been placed in the 2020 Presidential Election....

She also penned a letter to the reality star pleading with her to stop wearing the real thing

Pamela Anderson has never shied away when it comes to voicing her opinion on fur and animal rights, regularly calling out other celebs in an attempt to change their ways. Now she’s got her eye on Kim Kardashian. It’s emerged that Anderson sent a bright coral faux fur jacket to America’s reality queen, along with a personal letter pleading with her to ditch the fur. “As we all ponder New Year’s resolutions,” the actress wrote, “won’t you consider making a meaningful one to stop wearing fur?” You’d be setting a trendy, compassionate example.” Anderson references Gisele Bundchen’s recent cruelty-free cover of Vogue Paris and lists a whole host of...

This Year’s Grammy Nominations Are Monumental For Queer Representation

Pride all day, every day

The 2018 Grammy Awards nominations were announced this morning, breaking all kinds of records. Not only are more artists of color being recognized, but several out musicians and songwriters have been nominated, giving us hope that the Recording Academy is working toward better inclusivity and visibility in the industry.

We’re not the only ones noticing these changes. In fact, Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, said in a statement that “it is exciting to see groundbreaking LGBTQ artists like Lady Gaga, Kesha, Justin Tranter, Kehlani, and Shane McAnally recognized on the music industry’s largest stage.” She continued:

They represent so many talented LGBTQ music artists who don’t receive the same recognition despite critical acclaim and widespread popularity…...
