landscape-1498496686-slant-vetements2

There wasn't a truth-telling child included in the Vetements Spring 2018 lookbook, but there wereordinary citizens of Zurich Avedon-posing their hearts out in a greatest hits roundup of Demna Gvasalia's "reworked" Umbro shirts and windbreakers. Has the ruse gone on too long? Maybe—but even better than laughing along with the joke is being in on it.

Fab.

Fun fact: The subjects all chose what they're wearing themselves, which means Zurich has the highest styling ability per capita, probably.

This Slimming Massage iIs The French-Girl Secret To a Better Beach Body

00-lede-brigite-bardot
There’s long been a myth percolating about the enviable French woman who spends her time munching on baguettes and enjoying bounties of Bordeaux. 6:00 a.m. SoulCycle classes? Don’t be ridiculous. Counting calories? Mais non! And yet, her body puts even New York’s most dedicated gym rats to shame. But what if it wasn’t that les femmes françaises were simply genetically blessed? What if they had another trick up their (cashmere) sleeves? Enter aesthetician Martine de Richeville, whose slimming massage has long held court as the beau monde’s secret weapon to long and lithe physiques. That’s right—the key to losing inches off your waistline lies within a petite Parisian, fond of magenta lipstick and headbands, whose unique rémodelage technique is said to reshape silhouettes, reduce cellulite, boost tonicity, and...

Alexander McQueen Transformed a Rug Into a Coat For Spring 2018

1498588025-hbz-mcqueen-index-1498574893
Alexander McQueen, led under the direction of Sarah Burton since McQueen's passing, has always pushed the envelope for women's fashion. And now, the brand is ready to align its menswear collection on that same creative front. Over the weekend, the fashion house debuted a menswear show at Paris Men's Fashion Week for the first time. The Spring 2018 collection featured red leather, silk fringe, florals and scalloped details. Proving to be the most boundary-breaking, however, was a coat that Burton made from an actual rug. Yes, a rug. For the design, Burton turned the rug from McQueen's Spring 2017 women's runway inside-out for a distressed, colorful men's evening coat. The end result was a frayed but polished outerwear piece that made for the ultimate...

Gigi Hadid Dyes Her Hair Back to Blonde

00-lede-peach-eye
This just in: Gigi Hadid has returned to her supremely sunny roots. Yesterday, the formerly bronde supermodel stepped out in Manhattan to debut a set of freshly-lightened lengths, her baby blonde parted at center and cut in soft, face-framing layers calling to mind the '70s-inspired manes that have been turning heads as of late. And while her new style certainly did its part to brighten, Hadid furthered the feel with a set of sunglasses that mirrored even brighter days. But the radiant sensibilities didn't stop there. This morning found Hadid combing her bombshell blonde into a sleek, deeply-parted knot, ensuring the spotlight found her face. And for good reason: rather than lightly tinted shades, Hadid adorned her blue eyes with a warming wash of shadow reminiscent...

Is Fashion Ready For Fifth Harmony?

01-fifth-harmony
For most pop acts, uniformity is the fashion goal, from the Supremes’s identical sequined gowns to Destiny’s Child’s Tina Knowles costumes. Traditionally, singing together means dressing in sync. But lately, modern girl bands have stopped matching, choosing instead to embrace each artist’s personality with individual outfits. No group personifies this shift better than Fifth Harmony, the chart-topping quartet who rose to stardom with hits like “Worth It” and “Work from Home.” Though they color coordinate and share a love of Gucci, bandmates Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, and Dinah Jane each possess a unique take on fashion. “We’re very individual,” said Kordei, on a recent visit to the Vogue office. “Our look has definitely evolved, and it’s given us the opportunity to...

Hollywood’s Favorite Underdog Comes Out On Top

hd-aspect-1498257428-mc-alisonbrie-index10
It's early afternoon on a perfect 80-degree day in Los Angeles. I'm trudging up the West Observatory Trail when I realize that the bottle of water I chugged just before heading off is coming back up to say hello. I step off the path and promptly projectile vomit into a nearby sagebrush. Oh, and I'm with actress Alison Brie, whose expression quickly turns from surprise to concern. Normally I'd be mortified. But if you have to spew in front of an actress, Brie might be your best choice. "Oh my god, I'm so sorry!" she says emphatically. "Can I hold your purse? Are you okay?" I'm fine, I tell her—we can keep going. But sensing that I've already overestimated my physical...
