Lensed by Steven Klein and featuring the all-star lineup of Doutzen Kroes, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly, and Jon Kortajarena, Balmain's Spring 2017 visuals give off timely vibes of activism—and maybe just a whiff of "escaping L.A. for a better place, AKA the desert." Here, in a worldwide exclusive, see nine striking images from the campaign.

"You take a sound machine, a road, and a girl, the industrial and the glamorous…you can free your imagination and open a new world," designer Olivier Rousteing (winner of Marie Claire's 2017 Image Maker award) said in a press release.

You Need This Beauty and the Beast-Inspired Nail Polish to Complete Your Transformation Into Belle

belle-nails-1484002466

With its March 17 premiere date, we are still months away from finally seeing the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake. The closer we get, the stronger the obsession grows with new trailers, clips of Emma Watson as Belle singing, and now, beauty products inspired by the movie.
Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer and sister brand Gelish Gel Polish have announced a Beauty and the Beast-inspired collection coming in February 2017. The seven shades, revealed on PopSugar, feature names that reference the Disney classic, like "Be Our Guest," "The Last Petal," "Gaston and On," and "Pots of Tea."

L-R Top: "Be Our Guest," "Plumette With Excitement," "Pots of Tea," "Gaston and On"; L-R Bottom: "Enchanted Patina," "Days in the Sun," "The Last Petal"
L-R Top: "Be Our Guest," "Plumette With Excitement," "Pots of Tea," "Gaston and On"; L-R Bottom: "Enchanted Patina," "Days in the Sun," "The Last Petal"
"Enchanted Patina" is apparently an overlay coat that changes the color beneath it to look more "antique," going along...

The Cool Girl’s Guide to Florence

landscape-1481739686-mc-trafalgar-florence-1
Over an al fresco lunch at a villa overlooking a vineyard (because, Florence), my Trafalgar travel director, Tony, pronounced, "In all my travels throughout Italy, Florence's people are by far the most proud." Uh huh, I mumbled through a mouthful of creamy pasta with fresh truffles. After washing it down with a superb local Chianti, I was able to properly reply: "Why wouldn't they be? This place is magical." But then again, perhaps I thought that because of the incredibly special experience I had there. Tony, who was our guide throughout all of Italy, curated a rather exclusive itinerary for my group of seven fellow art, wine and food lovers, which made it easy to fall in love with Florence from...

Growing up, pretty much any birthday party I went to had two things: pizza and cake.

Well, it’s simply your favorite flavor of cake frosted to look like your favorite savory treat, pizza! Trust me when I say that this is the must-have dessert at every party this year.

2039102-1484001618-640x0c
There are certain retailers that you can always trust to lead you in the right direction when it comes to trends and new pieces, and Moda Operandi is undoubtedly one of them. The Lauren Santo Domingo–lead team of editors and merchandisers makes the shopping experience educational, as they constantly introduce new designers via their stellar trunk shows and trends that are about to take off. Today's email newsletter provided an excellent example of this in the form of their monthly shopping guide.

Beyoncé Interviewed Solange

1484074024-landscape-1484066699-gettyimages-457940384

It's too bad for whatever you're doing right now, because Beyoncé interviewed Solange and I can guarantee there's nothing on your to-do list more important than reading it.
Sorry. I'm just a technicolor coat of many emotions right now.

%ec%ba%a1%ec%b2%98
In the latest issue of Interview magazine, the mighty Knowles sisters chatted in the way only award-winning, chart-topping, era-defining sibling artists can: freaking magically. The two discuss Solange's gorgeous 2016 album A Seat at the Table and the inspirations behind it. The intimate conversation is even more special because Beyoncé so rarely does press; even though she's not being interviewed herself here, the chat definitely shows us what's important to her. Namely, her family, her art,...

Would You Try Mismatched Shoes? This Might Persuade You

landscape-1484079105-celine-atm-s17-038-2crop

Even though all feelings are valid, yada yada, a fear of mismatched shoes is highly irrational. (Several far better phobias: homicidal clowns, the world's people failing to set aside their differences in the wake of an alien invasion, Kevin Spacey.) For one, no matter how groggy you are in the morning, you will never, ever leave the house in one sneaker and one loafer—I can almost guarantee it. You will notice the height difference right away and make a U-turn. For another, mismatched shoes are an entirely respectable trend that have been a long time coming.
