Christian Louboutin Taps Choreographer Blanca Li For New Short Dance Film

Rene Habermacher
Taking into account the internet's everlasting obsession with choreography videos, Christian Louboutin merged dance with its iconic red sole heels for a new short film titled "La Répétition." Tapping choreographer, dancer and filmmaker Blanca Li, the new video features a group of dancers performing in Louboutin's fall 2016 collection—what, like it's hard? Inspired by "The Chorus Line,"the video spotlights a group of dancers rehearsing Li's demanding choreography until one collapses of exhaustion (ironically it's a male dancer in sneakers rather than one of the women twirling around in six inch heels). The tongue-in-cheek video manages to make dancing in studded stilettos, heeled booties and platforms look like a walk in the park and will undoubtedly make you want to a) invest in a...

Tyra Banks’s Closet Is Beyond Perfection

1

Model, businesswoman, and new mum Tyra Banks says the benefits of keeping a tidy home go well beyond aesthetics—it's a way to stay calm and in control, despite her chaotic routine. "Being a new working mother, my mornings are now hectic," she told Architectural Digest during a preview of her enviable new closet. "Everything has a place and purpose, which goes a long way in helping to start my day off on a good foot."

Banks created the boutique-like space with the help of Lisa Adams, CEO of L.A. Closet Design. The modern, light-drenched room is a Pinterest-lover's dream, featuring an entire wall dedicated to shoes and plush accents such as a black shearling-topped stool by Kelly Wearstler.

I’m Black And I Tried Spray Tanning—And The Results Were Amazing

spray-tan_feat-1
I love my natural complexion, but I’m always down to try anything that will amp up the glow. I’ve done laser treatments and peels on my face, but never really thought about ways to achieve total-body radiance. My skin is naturally a deep caramel hue—I was born with a beautiful tan, so getting the treatment never ever crossed my mind. That is until, one day when I was watching a reality television show (yes, go ahead and judge me). One of the the cast members was filmed getting a spray tan, and she has the same complexion as me. My natural beauty curiosity got the best of me, and I did a quick Google search to find out if it was really a thing for black...

Stella McCartney’s New Scent Breaks All the Major Fragrance Rules

landscape-1464296483-elle-june-2016-stella-mccartney
This article originally appeared in the June 2016 issue of ELLE. In a glass-walled hotel restaurant high above London's South Bank—the Thames uncoils below like a glinting liquid snake—actress Amandla Stenberg, 17, and model Kenya Kinski-Jones, 23, are twirling each other, ballroom-style, to Drake's "Hotline Bling," bopping their heads as they sing along. "Call me on my cell phone…." A few yards away, Stella McCartney picks up her phone, which has been vibrating insistently, and stuffs it into the pocket of her sleek yet slouchy black suit. You can't call her on her cell phone—at least, not today. The trio are about to hit a party for McCartney's new fragrance, POP. Stenberg, the outspoken, openly bisexual Hunger Games star, and Kinski-Jones,...

Featured Blogger: Clothes Minded

DSC_0713-2
Hey Come Trenders! We hope your Memorial Day weekend here in the US was well spent with family and friends! This week we're featuring up and coming fashion blogger: Andie of Clothes Minded. About Andie Growing up my love for fashion was kind of looked down upon and I was told time and time again that fashion wasn’t a real career and that I shouldn’t pursue it. So, I spent a lot of my high school/early college years trying to find something that held my interest or that I was passionate about. In college I studied criminal justice, dancing, theater arts and marketing. While I was trying to find my passion I started to fall into a depression because I didn’t feel like...

Ultimate Veggie Burger

Ultimate Veggie Burger
Veggie burgers are not easy to make awesome, but we think this one nails it. We solved the “mush” factor by folding in bouncy mushrooms and pleasantly firm black beans, threw a hard sear on it for crisp texture on the outside, and seasoned it aggressively to combat any blandness. There’s no imitation protein or weird ingredients, just a rich, moist mixture of vegetables, grains, and nuts that work with any toppings you want to throw at it. It may not be vegan, but it’s pretty darn good.

Ingredients SERVINGS: 6 Patties ¼ cup pearl barley Kosher salt 1 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided Freshly ground black pepper 1 14.5-ounce can black beans, drained 1 medium onion, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped ½ cup...
