Style Lessons from the Streets of Sydney

featured-imeg
Many cities, especially metropolises, have some special vibe which makes them unique and magical. Not surprisingly, Sydney, one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the world, is among them. With its breathtaking nature and many significant cultural and historical sites, as well as friendly and nice people all around, the oldest city in Australia is the perfect place to live in and also an inspirational destination for tourists. Some residents are probably accustomed to that specific lifestyle, while others aren’t even aware of it, but travelers can see and feel it the most while trying to adjust to a relaxed and joyful atmosphere Sydney has. Beautiful, confident and graceful women will especially leave a strong impression as they always...

Meet the New Breakout Nail Color Line From a Cult Jewelry Designer

Photo: Stella Berkofsky

After years of full-blown nail-art hysteria, recent times have ushered in another extreme: bare, polish-free fingertips. And while there’s something to be said for no-fuss hands that seem just at home in a ’90s Calvin Klein ad as they do in the present-day Vogue office, sometimes it’s hard not to miss the satisfaction of freshly lacquered nails. Here to bridge the gap is a new line of varnish for the “color averse” from Jess Hannah—the 25-year-old Californian behind J. Hannah, whose sculptural jewelry creations have amassed her an Instagram following of 205,000.

Frequently asked about the sleek gold and silver bijoux she dons, Hannah decided that well-groomed, manicured nails were a must but was disappointed with the...

The Adidas Sneakers I Can Wear With Everything (That Aren’t Stan Smiths)

06-Gazelle-1.w540.h356
When I found out that Adidas was relaunching its Gazelle sneakers this past summer, I couldn’t contain my nostalgic excitement. Sure, you could buy Adidas Gazelles before last June, but the new versions hewed closer to the more-tapered 90s’ style I remember from my youth. For so many of us in our 30s (and probably you younger kids in your 20s) the soccer-inspired Gazelles are an unforgettable part of our probably-not-misspent youths. And with girls and guys in faded jeans and camel coats falling over themselves for the ubiquitous (though still great) Stan Smiths, it did feel like we were all due for a change. Discussing the sneakers with a co-worker one day, we both ordered a pair. I dropped mine...

Meet L.A.’s Latest Food Craze

01-la-food-craze
Apparently there’s a new hybrid of East-Meets-West L.A. cuisine, slightly Japanese, slightly south of the border spicy, and wholly cutting-edge American. Tokyo, move over. Here’s a look at two new restaurants that embody the trend.   Shuhari Matcha Café Shuhari is the Japanese art of mastery; originally referring to martial arts.Approximate translation of the word shuhari, from the Japanese:shu: Learn it.ha: Make it your own.ri: Perform it instinctually. Add into the definition of the word ha, the notion of “disrupt it,” and you’ll be close to the concept of the new hot spot in Venice—and a possible new life philosophy, if you want to take it to the creative edge. Shuhari, the tea salon on Abbot Kinney, takes matcha and latte and an interesting...

These Beauty & The Beast Lip Kits Are Incredible — But There’s A Catch

z
Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement may have ruled the news cycle last week, but now that the dust has settled, everyone has returned to business as usual. That, of course, includes poring over any and all updates relating to the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie. We’ve been placing bets for months on which beauty brand would sync up for a collab with the Disney franchise. (If past partnerships are any indication, we were sure it'd be MAC or Sephora.) Little did we know, L’Oreal already has one in the works – and they are bringing it. Everyone’s go-to drugstore brand is launching a line of seven coordinating lipsticks and nail polishes, each aligned with one of the story’s beloved characters. That means...

Ruth Negga’s Vintage Style Feels So Right Now

00-embed
Ruth Negga has been cutting quite the swath through awards season, racking up a slew of nominations and stylish red carpet appearances. While the Loving actress and January Vogue cover star may be the woman of the hour, her glamorous look—those coiffed marcel waves, those wide-set, expressive eyes—recalls silent screen stars of the past. There’s also something pleasingly anachronistic about the dramatic way the Irish-Ethiopian actress moves in clothes—tossing her head back for the cameras or assuming a saucy, hand-on-the-hip pose. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Negga is not too demure to flaunt her fun side, recently playing up her headline–making style in a loopy Instagram Boomerang taken by her hairstylist, Vernon François. In the video, Negga appeared decked out in a...

It’s A 10 Super Bowl Ad Shares an Important Message: Super Bowl 51

its-a-10-hair
Lady Gaga’s powerful halftime performance wasn’t the only major beauty moment last night. Female-owned indie brand It’s a 10 decided to spread a powerful message via hair. The It’s A 10 Super Bowl ad showed the beauty of diversity and inclusivity through a compilation of different hair textures and styles. The black-and-white video begins with cheeky narration: "We're in for at least four years of awful hair," the narrator says. (Gee, I wonder why that is.) "So it's up to you to do your part by making up for it with great hair. We mean all hair." And unlike in some ads where "all hair" actually just means one kind of hair, It’s A 10 really means all hair. Emphasizing this...

5 Shanghai Neighborhoods Worth Wandering

01-shanghai-neighborhoods
Everybody has met one—the traveler who can’t go anywhere without a painfully overstuffed itinerary, rushing from one place to the next trying to make the most of their trip. And while this can work for some people, in many situations this is actually the least effective way to experience a place. Take Shanghai, for example. With more than 24 million residents, mainland China’s crown jewel is the world’s most populous city proper, and has developed at breakneck speed over the last two decades. Some experts assert that people have lived there for about 4,000 years; seeing ancient temples and cobblestone streets next to brand-new skyscrapers truly is a stark juxtaposition unlike anything else. To experience ultra-modernity against a backdrop of one...
