If there's one thing fashion loves more than an It girl, it's an It accessory. Balenciaga has been cranking out street style hits (the striped market tote, the spandex over the knee boots, etc) for several seasons now, and the Spring '18 shows made it clear that the French brand's new must-have is a triangular duffel bag―seen in a variety of sizes and colors from New York to Paris, and everywhere in between.

A Sartorial Reflection On The Colour Red For A/W17

We take a moment to mediate on the most provocative shade of all

“Red protects itself. No colour is as territorial. It stakes a claim, is on the alert against the spectrum,” said filmmaker Derek Jarman in his 1994 book Chroma: A Book of Color. The incendiary nature of the colour red has started political revolutions, indulged in pleasures of the flesh and flirted with danger in its many forms throughout the history of cinema, art and fashion alike. Hues of scarlet, crimson, vermilion and burgundy, incorporated into on-screen costume and propelled down the runway, act as telling flags to the nature of its wearer, not to mention the intention of a designer. Here, we present 16 red pieces of clothing for Autumn/Winter 2017, as...

Before there were Kylie Jenner lip kits and Kim Kardashian contour kits, Instagram star, Chantel Jeffries launched her own eye brow kit in 2014 when she realized her hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers were always asking about her enviable brows.

Logomania, The 1990s Trend That’s Returned With A Vengeance

As demonstrated by the A/W17 collections, branding is back to assert its place in our wardrobes

The logomania trend, whilst rooted in the excess of the 1980s, truly came into its own during the following decade, as a sartorial response to the US economic boom of the 1990s. Whilst branding initially found its place in fashion as a mechanism to denote prosperity and status, it soon became an aesthetic trope in itself, with Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior logos emblazoned on It bags, splashed across sweaters and seductively printed on underwear. Post-recession, the desire to wear labels in such a blatant manner waned, and a quiet minimalism began to dominate the runways. This season, however, the logo returned with a vengeance...

How Kylie Jenner Got White Eyelashes For Halloween (They’re Real)

hbz-beauty-secret-kylie-jenner-1509556192

Kylie Jenner went as an ice queen for Halloween this year—right down to her eyelashes. And no, those aren't a pair of fake strip lashes dyed white. Instead, Jenner's makeup artist @MakeupbyAriel tinted her lashes (which are enhanced with extensions) using white foundation. Then he combed white glitter "on the very tops of lashes" using a spoolie brush to give an icy effect. Just be sure any glitter you use near your eyes is cosmetic grade—not craft formula.

Why Is Getting Ready For Bed So Exhausting?

Charlotte Gomez / BuzzFeed

After coming to the realization that I dread getting ready for bed, I decided to see if I could trick myself into enjoying the necessary evil that is my nightly routine.

Every night, as I’m cozied up in my blankets, starting to feel drowsy — face unwashed, teeth not brushed, hair a matted mess — my inner voice bullies me to get my ass up and get ready for bed. “Sleeping in your makeup is terrible for your skin. Your skin needs to breathe!” “Ew, you’re really going to sleep without brushing your teeth? Think about the poor soul that wakes up next to you every morning!” “Why did you get in bed if you knew you still had to wash your face, ya...

Beast In Toronto

BEAST_LEAD_TorontoCityGuide
GO HERE: for meaty whole-animal feasts and one of the best brunches in the city, if your ideal brunch includes house-made biscuit sandwiches and booze. Chef Scott Vivian is an unofficial ambassador for Toronto’s food scene, lobbying out-of-town tastemakers like Anthony Bourdain to experience the city and bringing in guest chefs from all over the U.S. to host one-night-only dinners at his small restaurant, tucked away on a downtown residential street. It’s always been a popular spot with restaurant industry types. ORDER THE: whole menu. Parties of three or four can probably tackle all 15-ish dishes, which change often and frequently hit Mexican, South American, Middle Eastern, Vietnamese, and Korean notes. The whole-animal dinners, which feature a different part of a selected animal...

Gigi Hadid Photobombed A Vogue Paris Shoot Aged Five

Serving face since 2000

You know Gigi Hadid, Dazed cover star and model that became a huge hit seemingly overnight, but where did it all start? Was it the Guess AW12 campaign? Or maybe her runway debut at Jeremy Scott’s AW14 collection. Both wrong. Her first fashion appearance was actually in a Vogue Paris editorial at the tender age of five. Before you start accusing the publication of child labour – Hadid was not actually the chosen model but appeared accidentally clutching a model of the Eiffel Tower. That doesn’t stop her from serving face just like the model who appears behind her. Remembering the shoot, Hadid took to Twitter to ask if anybody could find the image. Thanks to the power of the internet – slash crazy stans – it was...
