Jewellery Inspired by Kate Moss’ Most Treasured Possessions

366070
Kate Moss and Ara Vartanian first met five years ago, when the super visited the brilliant jewellery designer at his studio in São Paulo after falling in love with a tanzanite and diamond ring of his she had seen in a store. They didn’t have it in her size, so she commissioned a custom ring direct, and has championed his cool and contemporary bijoux ever since. Close friends, the pair holiday together and Moss is even godmother to Vartanian’s daughter. Given their shared love of jewels, the decision to collaborate on a collection seems almost predestined. It all began when Moss noticed a mandala – a circular figure believed to represent the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism – Vartanian...

The 5 places in London You Should Get Your Sunglasses

869ddoext61v9ypb0yit7xzhl
If eyes are the windows into a person's soul, then sunglasses' importance lies not just in their bright-light dimming functionality, but also in their ability to creat a barrier between you and the world, with an accompanying aura of cool that no other item of clothing does as universally. It may be grey right now, but - according to the calendar, at least - summer is coming so whether you're after some vintage cat-eyes a sculptural statement pair, here's five of the best London stores to check out...

The Instagram Accounts Calling out Fashion’s Copy Cats

DietPrada_2
Fashion’s favourite social media platform (Instagram of course) has become the perfect opportunity to call out designers who have been more than inspired by another brand’s previous work. Gucci was recently on the receiving end of some Insta-controversy and a few months ago Alexander Wang threw some serious shade by posting an amusing meme aimed at Philipp Plein for his latest copycat catwalk show. However, the sassiest and most dedicated account to the cause has to be @diet_prada. The anonymous ‘grammer does not hold back, with strikingly similar designs displayed side by side and the most “claws out” captions on our feed. Combative posts include almost identical designs from Erdem, Mulberry, Tom Ford and Saint Laurent to name but a few, along with a bucket...

Where To Stay, Eat, And Drink In Verona

landscape-1494967575-slant-italy3-1

It makes sense that the historic city which set the scene for Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet also houses some of the most beautiful architecture and scenic landscapes out there. It's hard to imagine anyone not falling in love in Verona.
Hence, my fast infatuation with the charming Italian town. Verona might be overlooked by travelers rushing to get to cities like Rome, Tuscany, and Venice, but trust: it's one of the best places to sample authentic food and wine in one of the most heart-eye-emoji, beautiful regions in Italy. Below, some vignettes from an idyllic weekend in Italy plus tips on where to find the best eats, sips, and sights in the area.

Cover Your Under Eye Circles With Pizza Slices Like This Makeup Artist

18513129_1688670684774612_2591591757556744192_n
Makeup artists on Instagram have been exploring more creative ways to disguise under eye circles with other mediums, such as flowers and glitter, for years now — concealer, be damned. However, one MUA recently tried something cheesier (literally). Vancouver-based makeup artist Nicole Kuppan painted ooey-gooey slices of pepperoni pizza onto her face with makeup. As a mother of five children, she knows a thing or two about covering up under eye circles. The pizza slices were so effective that she "skipped the concealer step of my base face prep," Kuppan tells Allure. Like most of us, Kuppan has been loving the new bookmark option on Instagram. "I came across the artist [known as] @deladeso on Instagram and saved a lot of...

Balmain Ballerinas Are About To Take Over The Paris Opera

NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 20:  (L-R) Models Dudley O'Shaughnessy, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Jourdan Dunn pose with the Creative Director of Balmain Olivier Rousteing (C) at the BALMAIN X H&M Collection Launch at 23 Wall Street on October 20, 2015 in New York City.

Olivier Rousteing may be most-known for dressing his army of It models and Kardashian/Jenner family members, but the Balmain designer is about to cater to an entirely new clientele: ballet dancers. Rousteing has been tapped by dancer and choreographer Sébastien Bertaud to design costumes for an upcoming ballet at the Paris Opera. According to WWD, the Balmain costumes will be worn in “Renaissance,” a four-piece ballet performed by up-and-coming dancers. "To be honest, I was really surprised and moved because, for me, this goes beyond designing clothes for the opera. This project really represents French heritage. Obviously I love the world of pop, but for me, it all goes back to classical dance. I’ve been fascinated with it since I was a...

An Easy Trick For Assembling Shrimp Skewers

grilled-garlic-and-black-pepper-shrimp

The magic of skewering and grilling your food is how ridiculously easy it is. You just poke a stick through it, add a marinade or some seasoning, and then get to grilling. We love doing this with sausages or chicken thighs or bacon. But things get a little trickier with shrimp skewers, which, unlike vegetables and most meats, tend to engage in a fair bit of inconvenient spinning. Their natural slipperiness also doesn’t help.
There is a solution, though! It involves sticking two skewers through your shrimp, which prevents them from twisting and turning when you rotate them on the grill, and ensures even cooking. We consulted senior food editor Chris Morocco for the proper technique:
