Victoria Beckham is a designer who’s constantly on the move. The 41-year-old mother-of-four has a wanderlust that’s relentless, and last week she traveled to Hong Kong for an amfAR event honoring her work for UNAIDS and the opening of her first store in Asia.

Less than a day later, Beckham was on the road again to Seoul for Fashion Week, and a celebration of her latest collaboration with e-boutique MyTheresa.com. Here, the designer shares snaps from her trip, including a cheeky power-nap selfie with her BFF hairstylist, Ken Paves.

Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, and Pamela Love Join Hillary Clinton’s Made for History Campaign

holding-hillary-designer-tees
As the presidential campaigns head into the April 19 New York primary, Hillary Clinton has expanded her fashion-focused Made for History program. Following the success of the designer tees by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, and Public Schoolthat launched in February, team HRC is debuting new designs today from Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, and Pamela Love. “Personally, I am supporting Hillary because I believe she represents the future—and has the experience and knowledge to carry out change on issues that matter to the country, such as equal pay for women, LGBT equality, climate change, and energy,” said Altuzarra. His design, a bold black-and-white stripe logo, calls to mind the monochrome details from his recent Spring show—in fact, we’d say this top would...

Introducing Fall’s Trickiest Trend: Head-to-Toe Yellow

00-holding-now-trending-marigold
Of all the colors of the rainbow, yellow isn’t exactly rolling in aesthetic goodwill. It’s tricky to wear, and, depending on your complexion can conjure up a jaundiced effect; gone wrong, the effect can be downright frowsy. All that aside, the shade’s having a hell of a moment, as countless designers proposed head-to-toe looks in the shade for Fall, in every possible permutation of mustard, ochre, goldenrod, and not one but two languid gowns in saffron velvet (courtesy of Valentino andArthur Arbesser). Take Demna Gvasalia’s velvet suiting, or an electric lemon knit maxi dress spotted on the runway at Proenza Schouler. If the prospect still has you quaking in trepidation, take heart—and bolster your spirits with the not-so-distant memories of...

Rihanna’s New Music Video Is Jaw-Dropping, Over-the-Top Sexiness

38

After mercilessly teasing us with a slew of provocative stills and videos on Instagram this week, RiRi has finally dropped her new video for "Kiss It Better." And like the song itself—a sexy ode to an ex with a very particular set of skills in the bedroom—it's bound to leave you hot and bothered. Like, NSFW status.
The video finds Rihanna in the buff, artfully arching her back as wind blows a filmy sheet against her curves and gets, uh, acquainted with two pairs of dice.

39
And ladies, if RiRi's album art for "Kiss It Better" is any indication, tossing the tweezers and getting heavy handed with your brow pencil could heat up your sex life. She's sporting a full-on, filled-in unibrow, and according to face...

The Best Vintage Labels To Hunt Down, According To 3 Star Dealers

19
Browsing vintage clothing online is easily one of my favorite pastimes—but, like strangers’ Instagram feeds and true crime articles on Wikipedia—it’s easy to get sucked in for hours on end. One reason is that it’s hard to figure out how to narrow down a search—”floral dress” will yield listings in the tens of thousands on eBay, and looking for a leather motorcycle jacket on there could occupy your time for days. Of course, sometimes Targeted searches often yield better results, but beyond the usual suspects—Levi’s denim, Chanel handbags—who really knows what to look for? Well, there are a few people who make it their business to do just that. Vintage dealers spend their days researching, hunting for, and curating pieces for their...

This Fashion Insider Builds Her Wardrobe Around an Epic Jewelry Collection

For Grayscale PR founder Fallon Nachmani, personal style is less about trends and more about investment pieces that can transform any look—particularly jewelry. Her agency specializes in lesser-known jewelers from around the world, including the U.S., Brazil, and Lebanon, so she knows a thing or two about upgrading a minimal outfit with avant-garde extras. Whether she’s spending a day in her Tribeca office or attending a black-tie event, she relies on statement earrings, a classic watch, or a cluster of bracelets to pack a punch—sometimes all of them at once. Her approach to her job is specialized, too. After a decade of working in the industry, she noticed that designers—particularly young and emerging designers—wanted a more intimate, hands-on PR experience. That means...

Empire’s Manicurist Shares Chicago’s Best Beauty Spots

16
For Ericka Johnson, Chicago's best beauty spots extend far beyond the Magnificent Mile.   As the heartbeat of the Midwest, Chicago's beauty scene offers trendy boutiques, luxe salons, and over-the-top spas, but when you're on call for one of the hottest actresses on television, it's the city's no-fuss locales that have the most appeal. As is true for Ericka Johnson, Taraji P. Henson's go-to manicurist for her role on FOX's hit sitcom, Empire. When she's not painting intricate nail designs for Ms. Cookie Lyon, the Seattle native brushes up on the Windy City's under-the-radar salons and spas. Here, she shares a few of her favorite hideouts. Her Facialist "When I'm in need of a good facial, I head to my esthetician and friend, Beata Jedrzejewska....
