Gucci Features Only Models Of Color In a New Campaign

landscape-1492105680-hbz-gucci-ad-00-index

Gucci is celebrating diversity with its Pre-Fall 2017 campaign, titled "Soul Scene," which only features models and dancers of color. The ads, photographed by Glen Luchford, were inspired by the Northern Soul movement of 1960s London, and images by Malick Sadibé, a Malian photographer who captured nightlife in Bamako, Mali. The resulting vibrant photos are the perfect match for Alessandro Michele's equally bold designs.

The lively, flamboyant campaign is the product of the audition tapes Gucci released in January, which featured black models dancing and answering the question, "What does it mean to have soul?"

See the photos below.

landscape-1492024375-hair-girls

Forget spring—we've got fringe fever.

The to-chop-or-not-to-chop temptation is more real than ever before considering that bangs, in every shape, size, and texture, are skimming the lashes of every It girl in site. Here, find an assortment of face-framing bang statements that will ooze cool through summer.

1 BIRKIN BANGS

January Jones(@januaryjones)님의 공유 게시물님, 2017 3월 6 오후 8:46 PST

To this day, Jane Birkin's fringe is iconic. So it's no wonder that the gap-tooth beauty inspired January Jones' newly-minted, '70s-inspired bangs. You can opt for a straight along  cut or add a shagged arch, the key is making sure they're soft and left to separate on their own. Francophiles, this one's for you.

Why Khaki Is My Failsafe Shade For Spring/Summer

SS17-StyleL-0019

Summer style can very easily become a little too frothy for me. Sugary pastels, ditsy prints and romantic florals need a strong and slightly masculine counterpoint if they’re to work in my wardrobe, and utilitarian khaki offers just that. It anchors dreamy dresses and punctuates pretty prints, lending each a much-needed urban edge. Here are my favourite khaki pieces for spring/summer.
This Maje T-shirt is a great basic for summer. Be inventive about how you style it. Wear it beneath a sundress with a pair of trainers for a cool, laid-back look.

Cleanse Smart
Micellar water—a soap-free, no-rinse facial cleanser—contains micelles, molecules that dissolve makeup, dirt, and other grime. Even stubborn mascara breaks down in a flash. We like L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water($10).

Banish Blemishes
Many acne remedies are too harsh and drying. The essential oils and natural astringents in Tata Harper Clarifying Spot Solution($32) gently calm and treat breakouts without irritation.

Fake a Glow When choosing a highlighter, keep in mind what type of illumination you want, says Givenchy Le Makeup artistic director Nicolas Degennes. "Powders create a matte effect, whereas a gel gives you more of a reflection." Apply on the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, and forehead, areas where the sun...

Galaxy Lip Art Is Out of This World

제목 없음
No one really thinks of lips as a canvas for art — well, except for makeup artist Johannah Adams. She's the genius behind crystal lips and now, galaxy lips. The secret is to use a longwear liquid lipstick as a base color like Rimmel London's double-ended Provocalips so glitter-y pigments have something to stick to and really pop against. Just hold your lips apart after applying your fav shade for 60 seconds and then pop on the clear top coat for color that does. not. budge. Watch and be mesmerized as she creates a ~MaGiCaL~ AF nebula. Products Used: Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Color in Little Minx, RIMMEL London, rimmellondon.com Styling by Brand Joy Smith.

Hipbone Cutouts Are The New Off-the-Shoulder

landscape-1491936183-spl1457230-003-index

Hipbones: To most of us, they're just there for bumping into corners when you misjudge how fast the turn's coming up. But to fashion, they are The New Erogenous Zone™, to be framed by the leg openings of your mesh leotard and the waistband of your dangerously low-slung pants. 😥 Ahead, seven occurrences of the burgeoning trend, including early adapters Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Because ready or not, it's coming.

Even with this first example, the dichotomy of the exposed hipbone is pretty obvious: A part of the body you don't normally see, which is like "Whoa." (Even if you're literally wearing a long, brown dress with long sleeves.)

Inside The Kitchen At Ladurée

landscape-1492020535-untitled-8
While nothing quite rivals the gift of a Tiffany blue box, a light pistachio green one from Ladurée Paris, promising an assortment of divine pastel pastries, comes pretty close. Desperate to discover how one of our favorite patisseries makes the macaron based treats we cannot get enough of, we visited the shop's NYC flagship for a behind-the-scenes look at how their sugary sensations take shape. Their iconic macarons are flown in fresh every day from Paris, so you won't see them made here, but their best-known, irresistible pastries and tarts all come together in-house—and are almost too pretty to eat. Here, watch how they make their famed Saint Honoré Rose, Tarte Citron and Ispahan, that taste just as perfect (and...
