The Spring Breaker–Beloved Fringed Shirt Is Getting a Runway Revamp

01-vacation-shirt-vaquera
Fringed vacation tees had a moment on the Spring ’18 runways. The cheeky T-shirt made its first cameo at Vaquera, where it came complete with a surf-style logo. In Milan, Marco de Vincenzo showed the style as a swishy fringed tunic with a digitized sunset graphic, and in Paris at Loewe, for a collection based on the “traveling woman,” Jonathan Anderson whipped one up and emblazoned it with the label’s logo. These designer incarnations aside, the shirts have humble beginnings. Souvenirs often bought at beach stalls and worn by spring breakers, fringed tees make for easy—and cheap—cover-ups. They’re also beloved by the DIY contingent, if Pinterest is anything to go by. (One tie-dyed, party-ready shirt we came across has a description that...

Meet The Artist Whose Extreme Long Hair Is Taking Over Instagram

00-story-image-sara-cath
While the bob was undoubtedly the calling card of the Fall 2017 shows, the Spring 2018 season was all about extreme long hair which popped up everywhere from Marques’Almeida to Michael Kors Collection, where supermodel Kirsty Hume—and her Rapunzel-like mane—made a show-stealing appearance. And a quick look around social media proves that over-the-top lengths are not exclusive to the runway. Case in point: Los Angeles–based photographer Sara Cath, whose lion-like cascade of copper curls has helped her rack up more than 40,000 Instagram followers and counting. It might be hard to believe that the 21-year-old—who, in addition to shooting high-octane portraits of fellow millennial artists, just appeared in Rosetta Getty’s Georgia O’Keeffe–inspired collection—hasn’t always carried the hear-me-roar type of confidence her waist-grazing mane no doubt symbolizes. But, at just...

Victoria’s Secret Angels Bregje Heinen, Jasmine Tookes and Romee Strijd Attend Lili Claspe’s Wedding

Instagram
Dressing for a wedding as a guest can be tricky territory, with a whole set of rules to navigate, sometimes unspoken. But, as Victoria's Secret Angels Bregje Heinen, Jasmine Tookes and Romee Strijd demonstrated over the weekend, you can never go wrong with simplicity. The trio supported their mutual friend Los Angeles jewelry designer Lili Claspe as she got married at Malibu's Rocky Oaks Vineyard. With a background consisting of the mountains and Pacific ocean, perched on the top of a hill, the Victoria's Secret Angels all opted for outfits that complemented the setting. Jasmine Tookes, who modeled Victoria's Secret's $3 million fantasy bra last year, opted for a low-key look with a floral flowing, halter maxi dress that popped against the backdrop of...

Why I Finally Decided To Break Up With Wine

elm100117btypsych-001-jennifer-robbins-thelicensingproject-com-1506982843
I had an epiphany last summer: Drinking sucks. I was standing in a klatch of couples at a seaside cocktail party, everyone yakking about vacation plans and their children’s sports teams. I looked at my friends’ faces reddening from drink, the sweat on the men’s upper lips, the women hoisting their big goblets of wine to their lipsticked mouths. Everyone was talking too loud, and nobody was really saying anything. I was no different, clutching my wine, aggressively searching for my moment to jump into the double Dutch of conversation. I’m exhausting, I thought. This party is exhausting. How many parties had I been to? Hundreds and hundreds. How many glasses of wine had I downed? Thousands and thousands. Teenage keggers...

Two thumbs up for ombré that's more dip-dyed tips than gradual fade. (Love the combo of chestnut brown and snowy platinum, too.)

Cindy Crawford Defends Letting 16-Year-Old Kaia Gerber Model

bfa-20827-2616480-1507585930

Cindy Crawford has defended her decision to let her 16-year-old daughter, Kaia Gerber model. The supermodel says that she is more concerned about letting her daughter drive a car then enter the world of fashion.
"My daughter just got a driver's licence," Crawford told The Associated Press. "I'm a lot more concerned about her driving by herself then entering the world of modelling."

She went on to explain that she feels she has the advantage because she has been a part of the industry for so long and can therefore give her children the best advice. "The great thing for my kids is that I know a lot about that world," she said. "I feel like: Who better to help guide them...
