This Crystal-Studded Runway Hair Is The Beauty Alternative To a Tennis Bracelet

This season, Markus Lupfer left no stone unturned when it came to the details of his London Fashion week collection. And in addition to his floral-jacquard suits and ribbon-tied faux fur heels, the designer’s decadent touch extended to the decidedly ‘90s center parts of his tartan-clad models.

Playing off the linear, collar-bone grazing earrings dangling from the ears, backstage hairstylist Tina Outen smoothed each girl’s pin-straight lengths behind the shoulder, then meticulously encrusted the middle parted look with a stripe of diamanté crystals down the center. The overall look was a lesson in the rich rewards of perfectly...

This “Ultimate Cheeseburger” Made Of 9 Different Cheeses Is About As Peak Cheese As It Gets

HungryHouse
I like to approach my food the way I think Aristotle would, following the premise that "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." I think the quality of a sandwich is based in how well it marries its different components. But naturally, not everyone agrees with me. Harriet the Spy brought attention to the southern classic tomato sandwich, and everyone knows a person who prefers a BLT with just B. If a sandwich made with only one ingredient (no really, only one) sounds gouda to you, prepare yourself for this cheeseburger made entirely out of different cheeses. According to Munchies, The Ultimate Cheeseburger is the product of the culinary masterminds (or mad scientists) from Hungryhouse — a food delivery service similar to...

Bite Beauty Just Dropped Another One Of Its Zodiac-Inspired Lipsticks

bite-amusebouche-pisces-1518812854

In January, BITE Beauty announced that it was launching a new Astrology-inspired lipstick collection to much fanfare. We learned every sign will be getting its own shade and kicked things off with a plum-hued Aquarius. Now, the beauty brand has returned with a new shade for Pisces.
The new lipstick, in that same beloved Amuse Bouche formula, is a dusty peach shade designed for the "dreamy, go-with-the-flow" lip savant, enriched with botanicals oils and fresh-pressed citrus.

BITE Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Pisces ($26)

The lipstick retails for $26 but if the quick-selling Aquarius is any indication (it sold out in just two days), it'd be smart to act fast when "Pisces" hits sephora.com on February 19.

Is A MAC Matte Fix + Coming Out? Here’s All The Clues So Far

S. Alemdar/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Some beauty products are just cult classics for makeup lovers, and perhaps no brand has more of them than MAC Cosmetics. Now, one of their most iconic and well-known products could be getting a makeover. According to rumors on the internet, a MAC Cosmetics Fix+ Matte could be coming, and it's time for matte skin lovers to rejoice. Bustle has reached out to MAC Cosmetics for comment. MAC's Prep & Prime Fix+ spray is a favorite of beauty junkies and YouTube gurus. Why? It's more than likely its plethora of uses. The clear spray with a signature herbal scent is designed to both prep the skin for foundation and can also be used to set the face. However, some gurus use the spray to dampen a...

Red Boots Are The New White Boots

elle-nyfw-fall2018-red-boots-1518631259
It seems like just yesterday we were trying to convince ourselves that investing in a pair of white boots wasn't the most impractical idea we'd ever had. But just as soon as we'd come to terms with buffing those scuffs, a new boot sauntered into town. She's less subdued, more fiery, and well, a lot easier to take care of. Red boots—in buttery calfskin or shiny patent, cropped neatly at the ankle or snaking up to the knee, square-heeled or nearly flat—serve as a dramatic punctuation mark on pretty much any outfit. The hot crimson is equally at home with denim and plaid, but also stands up to patterns, or can hang back when part of an all-red ensemble. At New York Fashion...

Everybody Loves Christian

sirianoheaderstill-1518701198
It’s the day before his 10th anniversary show and Christian Siriano, plus 11 celebrity friends and models have taken over the ELLE.com offices. My simple pitch to “get a few women together to model some of Siriano’s favorite gowns from his archive” has turned into a full-blown portfolio shoot, complete with A-list celebrities, super models, and social justice activists. Selma Blair is town from LA, halfway through hair and makeup when I arrive at 8:45AM. Author and transgender rights activist Janet Mock has changed her flight and taken a two-hour car ride to make sure she’s here on time. Down the hall, actress Danielle Brooks arrives wearing a Siriano full length salt and pepper fur coat she initially borrowed for an...

Patrick Church Paints Dresses Live At Opening Ceremony

1200x600 (4)

Patrick Church, the London-bred designer who creates custom hand-painted pieces, opted out of a traditional runway format for NYFW. Instead, this season's presentation was more like live performance art, as he painted a silk white dress for two hours in front of a crowd inside Soho's Opening Ceremony store.

Titled "Pour Myself Onto You," Church did just that, pouring his signature faces onto a blank gown, with her dramatically oversized lips and heavy eye makeup. The designer-artist was accompanied by an opera singer, and flanked by his two core muses — Cory Walker and Anaury — both wearing original head-to-toe looks by Church.

Marc Jacobs Probes The Darker Side of ’80s Glam

GETTY IMAGES
It started at Tom Ford, the first big Show of New York fashion week: wild colored animal print, over-the-top sequins, hot hot pink and a Pointer Sister’s soundtrack. It continued in fits and starts throughout the week—banana clips and mini skirts at Alexander Wang, pleather dresses at Christian Siriano. And by the time Marc Jacobs closed out fashion week it became crystal clear: The '80s, in all their brightly-colored, shoulder-padded, tacky glory, are back. In the same spare set he has used the past few seasons—just two rows of chairs flanking a narrow runway inside the cavernous Park Avenue armory—Marc Jacobs sent out a dramatic, voluminous, and richly textured fall 2018 collection. There was cashmere and taffeta and velvet and tweed. There were...
