stitch-braid-and-coils-1510248084

Want to switch up your latest look for something fresh? Try these three crazy-cool braids:

The Butterfly Braid

RUBEN CHAMORRO/KATIE BUCKLEITNER
RUBEN CHAMORRO/KATIE BUCKLEITNER
1. Blow dry your hair as straight as possible. 2. Section your hair, creating a slightly slanted side part from mid-brow at your hairline to the middle of the crown of your head. Using a rat tail comb for the most precise line. 3. Smooth fly-aways and baby hairs with an edge control styling gel. (I used Creme of Nature Flexible Styling Snot). 4. Start braiding your hair along your hairline to the right of your part. Make sure that you're adding in hair each time your cross a section of hair under the other two sections to make your braid bigger and longer, creating a...

How to Wear a Beret with Curls, According to This Chic Parisian Jewelry Designer

Photo: Courtesy of Adeline Rapon / @adelinerapon
For curly-haired women, a love of hats presents a major conundrum: Statement-making chapeaus, like Marc Jacobs' puffy camel newsboy cap or Dior's sleek leather beret, can instantly elevate your look, but you have to consider how it will lay on your cloud of natural volume and whether it'll be worth the wilted spirals and unwanted dent it leaves behind. But leave it to the born-and-raised Parisian jewelry designer Adeline Rapon to prove that a well-placed topper and buoyant texture can, in fact, live together harmoniously. Given how well it suits her, it's hard to believe that 27-year-old Rapon didn't always wear her hair curly. "It's been a long journey, actually," she admits. "As a little girl, my mother made me feel proud of my hair, but I started...

Demi Lovato Forgot To Wear a Shirt To This Awards Show

Demi Lovato took a page out of the Kardashian fashion rule book when she hit the MTV European Music Awards in London on Sunday night wearing a statement plaid suit sans shirt.

She sported waist-length hair and added a pop of color to her look with bright red eyeshadow. The no-shirt trend has been picking up speed, although it does leave me wondering a few things: Does your torso get cold? Doesn't it severely limit your arm movements? Is dealing with sticky fashion tape worth it? Is it actually faster to pick out an outfit if you have one less thing (i.e., a shirt) to match it with?

Glass Nail Files Are Here To Change Your Manicure Game

best-nail-files-1510343981

Here’s the extent to which I think about nail files on a daily basis: I don’t. Sorry, nail-file makers of the world, but if it sands down my talons in a somewhat painless way, then I’m fine with it. At least, that’s what I used to think, before this shiny, glimmering, beacon of hope—also called a glass nail file—crossed my desk for the billionth time in my career last week, and I actually stopped to try it out for once. And holy wow; I am officially a changed, albeit-late-to-the-party, woman.

This Is What KKW Fragrances Really Smell Like

KKW FRAGRANCE
"What does KKW FRAGRANCE smell like?" said no one in particular, when a taupe, hardcover Harry-Potter-book-sized box appeared on my desk. It was Crystal Gardenia, one of three debut fragrances from Kim Kardashian's KKW Beauty collection. The other two, Crystal Gardenia Oud and Crystal Gardenia Citrus, must've gotten lost in the mail. Housed in a synthetic crystal surrounded by more crystals, Crystal Gardenia is inspired by Kardashian's well-documented love of gardenias. It began with a gift from her father, she explains in a press release. After a business trip to New York, he returned with a perfume that smelled like the tropical flower. "It’s one that I still have and I treasure the memories that it evokes when I see the bottle,” she...

Victoria's Secret x Balmain may be the collaboration on everybody's lips this season, but don't let that distract you from VS's long-running (and equally stunning) partnership with Swarovski. This marks the lingerie brand's 15th anniversary working with the renowned jeweler, and they're celebrating in a big way: One million Swarovski crystals will grace the catwalk through various looks in Shanghai, WWD reports.
Elsa Hosk, a VS Angel since 2015, will be wearing the leading look on the runway, which features 275,000 multicolored crystals, 200 yards of ribbon, hand-beaded jewelry, and 14-pound wings. "It is one of the heaviest wings we have ever made," Monica Mitro, executive vice president, brand communications and events at Victoria’s Secret, told WWD.

Rita Ora Wore A Bathrobe And Towel On The Red Carpet

With diamond jewelry, of course.

You know that feeling of dread when you're so relaxed post-shower but need to get ready to go out? Well Rita Ora, unexpected pioneer of our time, discovered a solution to this problem over the weekend.
Becoming the official poster child for anyone who's ever not wanted to go to work, Ora showed up to her hosting gig at the MTV EMAs in London wearing a floor-length bathrobe, terry cloth towel wrapped on her head, and diamond jewelry. The look, as it turns out, was not from the singer's hotel room but actually straight off the runway from Palomo Spain's Spring 2018 collection.
