landscape-1485206945-unspecified

We're in that stretch of winter that everyone dreads: Spring is only a few weeks away, but it's definitely too cold outside to bust out all your new season gear. My suggestion? Combat your late winter blues with some inspiration courtesy of the spring runways. Bright, mood-lifting colors and odd, off-beat combinations were everywhere this season including shows like Balenciaga, Celine, and Alexander Wang. Shop these four outfit ideas ahead.

The hair and makeup looks we loved from the Paris runways.

CHANEL The Look: Chanelarella How-To: Barbarella was released in 1968. Man first walked on the moon in 1969. And in 2017, Karl Lagerfeld made history by launching a rocket from inside the Grand Palais in Paris. It was easy to see where the hair and makeup references came from this for this space travel-inspired season; hairstylist Sam McKnight dubbed the voluminous hair "Chanelarella" on Instagram. The sky-high, '60s-inspired volume could only be achieved by one technique: teasing. And then more teasing. McKnight and his team backcombed and fluffed the hair until the last second the models hit the runway. A headband—either plain black or bedazzled—was then secure right along the hairline. The...

Get Thee to a McDonald’s ASAP to Try These Shamrock Drinks

Review-Shamrock-Drinks-McDonald

For St. Patrick's Day, McDonald's has released an entire line of minty-chocolatey Shamrock drinks, just in time for St. Patrick's Day. You probably already know and love the original Shamrock Shake, but if you can shake away from your normal order, these are the four drinks to try!

Chocolate Shamrock Shake

Chocolate-Shamrock-Shake
McDonald's layers its minty green Shamrock Shake on top of its thick chocolate shake. It's garnished with whipped cream, crunchy green sugar crystals, and a cherry. We tried it with the Shamrock Shake Straw, designed to give you both flavors in one sip. I did taste both the chocolatey and minty flavors at once, but I don't think the cool swag is necessary to enjoy...

“Degrading” Saint Laurent Campaign Under Fire By French Ad Watchdog

France's advertising watchdog, the Autorité de Régulation Professionnelle de la Publicité (ARPP), has called on Saint Laurent to modify two ads from its spring 2017 campaign for being "degrading" to women.
The two photos in question feature a woman in roller skates and fishnets with her legs spread and another with a woman in roller skates bent over a stool. The French fashion house has received plenty of backlash on social media and 50 formal complaints to the ARPP, according to Reuters.

landscape-1488816694-slant-coachella2-filt

Some people like Paul Rudd have the luck to look moderately the same all their lives; others have to endure fluctuating weight and even more mercurial hair. But whatever nature has given you to work with, the deficit can be filled with clothes. So for Coachella, an event practically invented for exceeding your phone storage, we've put together seven outfits that will stand the test of time.

CAMP SHIRT + MATCHING DRESS The Prada way of styling a camp shirt is a bit hard to manage in the desert (no pencil skirts or pumps for me, please)—unless you go the Harley Viera Newton route with a minidress and sandals. You've still got the beach-holiday vibe with the...

Kristen Stewart, is that you? That might be your first reaction to seeing the actress after taking one glance at the red carpet photos of Stewart at the premiere of her new film Personal Shopper. Stewart arrived at the event looking nearly unrecognizable with a shaved head dyed bleached blonde. While the extreme change is exactly that, extreme, Stewart pulled it off with major confidence, making the haircut look like something she's had for ages. Although, just as recently as the day before, March 6, she appeared in Los Angeles with her brunette roots and a short haircut. While promoting her upcoming spooky film about a personal shopper for a celebrity in Paris, which debuts March 10, Stewart unveiled her freshly...
