8 Outfits Inspired By Our Newest Amazon Addiction

landscape-1484858051-lead-2
You can't talk about "The Roaring 20's" without talking about F. Scott Fitzgerald—and you can't talk about '20's fashion without talking about his wife, Zelda. Often referred to as the "First American Flapper," no one embodied the bold, free-spirited sartorial movement more. And now Zelda's avant-garde style and her contagious spirit are taking center-stage, for your binge-watching pleasure, in Amazon's newest original series, Z: The Beginning of Everything, starring Christina Ricci as the lady of the decade. And while the story itself is engaging—the pilot, which debuted in November, had us counting down till the release of the complete season on January 27th—it's the show's remarkable 1920's wardrobe that'll have you staying up late to watch just one more episode (perhaps...

"How did they get all these fashion people to see the ballet?" remarked my seatmate. I would argue, who wouldn't want to see the ballet? But that's besides the point. She's talking about editors seated in every direction I turn and the stars peppered throughout the audience (I spot Meg Ryan two rows ahead of me, Leigh Lezark at the corner of my eye, and I know Solange and Maggie Gyllenhaal are around somewhere). But the answer to her question was actually quite very simple: Everyone wanted to see Opening Ceremony's collaboration with choreographer Justin Peck of the New York City Ballet on Saturday night. In another one of its famous unconventional moves, the contemporary-cool brand had decided to give up...

The DIY Facial That Completely Transformed My Skin

landscape-1485783937-elle-knc-02
I love getting facials. Even more than indulge in a relaxing massage, facial treatments are my absolute favorite thing to gift myself. Because I have two businesses and two babies, I'm rarely able to indulge in spa time. Instead, I've mastered the art of the DIY facial. My version isn't your basic wash, exfoliate, mask, and go routine. My facials are intense to say the least. Here, everything I use for spa-level results at home. Cleanse. I double cleanse just to make sure I get everything off. First, I use an organic raw coconut oil (you can find at the grocery store); this removes all the makeup, dirt, and impurities. Next, I usually follow with my everyday favorite, La Prairie's foam...

2017 Should Be the Year You Try Diamond Nails

z

Unless you’ve been living underneath a rock, you can probably guess that we’re mildly obsessed with K-beauty trends. From cute AF Korean beauty products to 10+ step skincare routines, nothing is off limits. So of course, without question, we instantly fell in love with the latest nail obsession — diamond nails. Similar to the glass nail, this shiny, OTT nail art will give your digits that extra wow factor they deserve. Created with a reflective sticker, you can opt to use them over all 10 digits or keep it minimal with an accent digit. While we’re all for glitz and glamour, this diamond mani will add the right amount of pizzazz without costing you a fortune — and we’re all about that.

Khloé Kardashian’s Half-Up Hairstyle Only Looks Like It’s Hard to Do

koko-half-up
I've always loved wearing updos. But now that I’m a beauty editor and a new mom, I hardly have the time (or frankly, the hands) to spend time styling my hair for more than a minute or two. But Khloé Kardashian’s half-up hairstyle, which celebrity hairstylist and ghd brand ambassador Justine Marjan, posted a photo of Koko wearing a half-up style laced with braids. Marjan, who created the look ten minutes, did so for an upcoming episode of—what else—Keeping Up With The Kardashians. To know that something this beautiful can be so simple is a legitimate game-changer—no longer are the days I let my 6-month-old dictate the state of my hair. "Khloé was filming a short segment for the show so...

I Swapped My Morning Coffee For Bone Broth To See If It Made Me a Better Person

1485538526-landscape-1484871202-screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-71302-pm
I've made a lot of ambitious New Year's resolutions over the years ("Lose 30 pounds by Valentines Day" or "Stop texting people and call them instead") but this year's decision to give up coffee felt downright insane at times. After spending the holidays in Italy drinking thrice-daily double espressos, my body was in desperate need of a detox. I felt sluggish, unbalanced, and mainly just bleh. The internet told me that drinking bone broth would make me into Beyoncé overhaul my life, so I decided to try it for one whole week. No coffee—bring on the piping hot cup of salty, meaty water. Mmm. A quick Google search made me realize I was far from the only millennial hopping on the bone both...

The Post-Internet Branding that Swept the Menswear Shows

362425
Does branding maketh the brand? If the recent menswear shows are anything to go by, the answer is a definitive yes. Gone are the days of recession-era discretion, most famously embodied by the four subtle white stitches that would instantly identify a Margiela to those in the know. Today, branding is all about the big, bold cultish lettering that can be spotted from a mile off. Sounds gaudy, doesn’t it? That’s only natural – after all, a widespread cynicism when it comes to overt branding is only to be expected considering the abuse of it as a USP within the fashion world. No longer are T-shirts with a miniature crocodile or polo player flying off the shelves like Star Wars...

Your Most-Confusing And Embarrassing Makeup Questions, Answered

makeup-questions-answered-feature
Being an adult is weird. By now, you’re expected to automatically know some stuff about life, like how to file your taxes, jumpstart your car, cook at least a semi-respectable meal, and, according to every junior-high kid on social media with Kardashian-level contouring, be really, really good at makeup. And sometimes, it can feel like all of that beauty knowledge skipped your brain and infiltrated your friend’s or co-worker’s, and now you’re stuck with a whole bunch of basic questions, and the tiniest bit of shame about asking them. But, hey, we don’t care. Like, at all. We don’t care if you still aren’t sure how to use concealer, or what face primers do, or why your foundation keeps melting off...
