10 Easy Halloween Costumes That Are All About The Hairstyle

Property of Touchstone Pictures

For those last-minute costume party invites.

We've all got that friend. The one who starts spitballing next year's Halloween costume ideas on November 1 and spends the next 365 days deciding on the perfect character, picking out looks, assembling costume pieces, and practicing their styling until the big day finally rolls around and they can blow everybody else at the costume party out of the water. Jerks. We love the hardcore costume mavens; after all, when are we going to get a chance to show off our Princess Leia bun-skills if not Halloween?

As Cara Delevingne continues her foray into acting, her style hasn't skipped a beat. The model-turned-actress' red carpet streak continues on a strong note as she promotes her latest film project, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, a Luc Besson-directed sci-fi adventure where she plays one of two special agents assigned with saving the universe when serious danger falls. (No big deal.)
With the visually stunning film's obvious sci-fi themes in mind—space, aliens and intergalactic technology abound—Delevingne tipped her hat to the movie with her outfit at the Los Angeles premiere last night. The 24 year old stepped out in an Iris van Herpen couture dress—a silver sheer number—that served futuristic, robotic and outer space vibes all at once.

Wheeler’s passion for publishing began young: he received his first printing press on his 18th birthday and before assuming his role at the New York museum had spent six influential years in Europe where he befriended some of the most famous artists of the day, including Picasso, Renoir and Chagall. His gift for friendship also extended to other areas of the art world – from museum administrators to trustees to collectors – a knack that served him extremely well...

Five Times Christmas Lights Crossed Over Into Pop Culture

361346
Christmas lights hail from humble origins: they first festooned the indoor firs of early 20th-century German households as miniature candles, clinging to tree branches with tiny blobs of melted wax or delicate dress pins. Today, the ritual of stringing up festive displays of light is a yearly extravaganza, a global celebration of excess that can at times surpass the parameters of ‘good taste’ and enter into the realm of ‘naff’. What exactly defines our cultural palates is indeed a question in and of itself, so on this occasion we’ll leave that debate for 2017. Instead, we consider five instances in which Christmas lights have become separated from their purpose as a means of decoration, and placed instead into a conceptual and creative context. 1....
