Ever heard of a “bomb cyclone”? Or “bombogenesis”? Well, get acquainted, especially if you live in the Northeast. The term refers to a blast of snow and frost that is forecasted to begin tonight. Parts of the region are expected to get six to 12 inches of snow, powerful hurricane-force winds, and below-zero temperatures. (It’s not only the Northeast, either: The freakish frost has also hit places in Florida and Georgia.) Still, those in the Northeast will be expecting the worst of it. The best thing to do? Probably stay inside cocooned in a down comforter. If you have to venture outside, there are some smart, even scientifically backed, stay-warm tips to note. Dr. Heidi Cullen, the chief scientist for the news...

Posing for family portraits as a teenager is always a drag, but when you and your siblings are the supermodel spawn of Cindy Crawford, it's a tad less embarrassing.
Taking sibling portraits to the next level, Kaia and Presley Gerber front the Spring 2018 campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans together. The teenage modeling duo appears in the brand's latest #MyCalvins ads titled 'Our Youth' and photographed by Willy Vanderperre.

The 1971 French Spaghetti Western Starring Brigitte Bardot

Les Pétroleuses, 1971(Film still)
Any film which sees icons Brigitte Bardot and Claudia Cardinale facing off in hand-to-hand combat, bosoms heaving and petticoats muddied, deserves some serious stylistic attention. Les Pétroleuses(or The Legend of Frenchie King, as it’s known in English) is a witty 1971 spaghetti western that’s captivating from the get-go. The setting is a bizarre francophone Texas town in 1888, dominated by Marie Sarrazin (Cardinale) and her band of brothers. When the daughters of the notorious outlaw Frenchie King arrive in town, led by his eldest child Louise (Bardot), the two families clash with comedic results. Like many films from this era it comes drenched in outdated Western stereotypes, from a Native American wiseman to a Chinese acupuncturist, but nonetheless it continues to radiate the same heat it did on...

As a new book of his Pirelli calendar outtakes is published by Taschen, we explore how Peter Lindbergh’s aesthetic has shaped the fashion world as we know it

In 2002 Peter Lindbergh was tasked with shooting his second Pirelli Calendar, aptly named Peter Lindbergh’s Hollywood, which was the first of its kind to feature actresses rather than the usual ultra airbrushed and scantily clad models. In it, the chosen women made Lindbergh’s images come alive with a sense of their own narrative, in way that Pirelli had never seen before. Even Germaine Greer declared it the “most challenging calendar yet”. It is testament to how groundbreaking this work was that Pirelli called upon the photographer once more to produce a sequel to this earlier edition for...

Chocolate Is Going Extinct, According To Scientists

chocolate-extinct-shortage-1514923563

The worst news to ever befall the world of very important (yet totally not important) things has just been announced: The existence of chocolate is in danger.
According to a new report in Business Insider, the only thing that consistently makes you happy could go extinct in your lifetime, thanks to a decline in cacao plants (refresher: chocolate is made from the seeds of said plant). Apparently, cacao plants are especially sensitive to climate changes—most of the crops can only be grown in two small countries in Africa, currently—and with the ever-increasing temperatures, the plants are now on track for total extinction as early as 2050 (which, heads up, is only 32 measly years from now).

"When we dance, we're trying to connect to the present," hip-hop dancer Feroz said in a statement issued by Kenzo. "And when we are connected to the present we confront life itself. I think fashion needs dance to give life to clothing. To connect it to the now." The Move was introduced by Kenzo creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim as part of their La Collection Memento No. 1 collection, and is available in its...
