Why The Runway Still Matters

6print-1514389258

Sitting beneath the lights of a sparkling Eiffel Tower, it’s hard not to surrender to your most romantic impulses. And everyone at Saint Laurent’s show this season at the Fontaine du Trocadéro—with direct sight lines to the ultimate Paris monument—did just that, turning into unabashed tourists raptly taking photos of the sight just as the lights went down. Days earlier, a similar hush had fallen over a room of fashion-jaded insiders when a quintet of supermodels who need only first-name identification—Cindy! Naomi! Claudia! Helena! Carla!—closed the Versace show in Milan with a Grecian goddess–like tableau. It was, to use a well-worn fashionism, a moment.

Photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer, Gomez models the Parker, a new bag style from Coach that launches in February, while wearing a yellow beaded dress. "The first time I walked on set I was a little nervous; I can get a little intimidated," Gomez said of her experience with Meisel. "But he’s genuinely the sweetest, purest person. There are never a lot of people around, and it’s very intimate. It’s beautiful." Since joining Coach, designer Stuart Vevers has brought a New York-centric...

Tracing The Precocious Style Of Twin Peaks’ Audrey Horne

Twin Peaks(Film still)

As a new book is released bridging the 25-year gap between the second and third seasons, we chart the evolution of Audrey Horne’s singular style

The mischievous 18-year-old, cherry-knot tying spoiled brat of Twin Peaks Audrey Horne (as played by the inimitable Sherilyn Fenn) clearly enjoyed experimenting with the power she wielded as the gorgeous daughter of the town’s richest businessman. “I’m Audrey Horne, and I get what I want,” she memorably tells sleazy store manager Emory Battis – as she attempts to strangle him – in season two. What the viewer actually witnesses is very different indeed, however; neither Audrey’s glamour nor her beauty help her to achieve her aims. Instead, she is neglected by her father in favour of her doomed classmate Laura Palmer. Her attempts to...

Screen-Shot-2018-01-02-at-4.08.26-PM-1274x630

Saint Laurent travels back in time for a fresh take on '80s fashion.

Leave it to Anthony Vaccarello to take an average Tuesday and turn it into a high-voltage neon night with Saint Laurent’s latest SS18 campaign film. The enthralling short film epitomizes the decade ince and glamour of the ‘80s and features YSL muses Anja Rubik, Adut Akech and Raquel Zimmermman—all while dancing under strobing neon lights to the tune of New Order’s "Blue Monday".
Directed by photographers Inez and Vinoodh, the duo masterfully captures the glitz and glam of Vaccarello’s sequined tuxedo blazers and feathered dresses that command the spotlight. Watch below and see how Saint Laurent delivers the ultimate rooftop party.

Pat McGrath Is Dropping The Most Extra Lip Balm Of All Time

hbz-lip-fetish-index-1514920098

Pat McGrath invented the art of extra beauty. She was mixing glitter and pigments backstage at runway shows for years before branching out with her own makeup line Pat McGrath Labs. She's since dropped at-home versions of those aforementioned glitters and pigments, as well as lipsticks, intense eyeshadows, and an ultra-bold highlighter. So it only makes sense that her first utilitarian beauty drop—a lip balm—doesn't look like a standard tube of Chapstick. Feast your eyes on Lip Fetish.

LIP FETISH ⚡️⚡️⚡️ ICONICALLY INDISPENSABLE 🖤🖤🖤 Encapsulated in Mother’s wondrous white lacquered bullet #patmcgrathlabs #LipFetish delivers luscious lips infused with anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients; moisturizing, protecting and priming your lips as it melts into every curve, imparting a luxuriously lightweight, silky smooth feel and...

The Best French Fries We Ate In 2017

boy - red hog - fries
When I’m traveling for work, I take pretty detailed notes on what I eat. So after a meal at Red Hog, a whole-animal butcher and bar/restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, I jotted down some reminders to myself: the intense richness of the smoked burger, the burnished color of the roast chicken, the way the pepperoni on the wood-fired pizza curled into a little cup in that very special way. And then I wrote in enormous letters: “FRIES!” Here’s the thing: When you’re eating multiple dinners a night, as I was on that jaunt, it takes a lot to get excited about French fries—and even more to justify eating an entire order of them, given the sanctity of stomach space. And yet, excitedly eat an...
