Melbourne Named World’s Most Livable City For Seventh Straight Year

landscape-1502893395-gettyimages-600795275
Every year, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranks the most livable cities in the world, and for the seventh time in a row Melbourne, Australia topped the list. Melbourne scored 97.5 out of 100 on the annual list, beating out Vienna (#2) and Vancouver (#3) for the top spot. Meanwhile, Australia's largest city, Sydney, didn't even crack the top 10 this year. Another notable absence on this list? Any city in the United States. So, what makes Melbourne so great? The Economist Intelligence Unit bases its rankings on stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. While foreign visitors won't necessarily benefit from the city's access to top-notch education or healthcare, Melbourne's excellent food scene, easy access to public transportation, world-class museums and beautiful parks makes...

Pat McGrath’s New ‘Unlimited’ Makeup Collection Is Fall’s First Mandatory Beauty Binge

pat-mcgrath-first-collection-color-cosmetics-vogue-september-2017
After more than two years of maintaining statecraft levels of secrecy, Pat McGrathsteps into a glass conference room in her Manhattan studio and snaps the curtains closed, fussing over the gossamer fabric to make sure her staff can’t peek inside. “No one has seen this yet,” she says giddily, unloading a series of tubes and compacts from a bejeweled Prada sac—a gift from Miuccia—onto two velvet-lined trays. It is an early morning in late May, a few days before the influential makeup artist will accept the Founder’s Award at the CFDA Awards, and a few weeks before she will fly to Paris to create a holographic crimson lip for Maison Margiela, a highlight of the fall couture calendar. Today’s reveal marks another milestone...

landscape-1502905028-elle-jeffree-stars-racist-mixtape
Last night on Viceland's Desus & MeroDesus & Mero, the late-night news duo turned their attention to makeup artist slash vlogger, "Jeffree Racist Star," who slammed Kim Kardashian West's swatch skills and quickly faced the wrath of Twitter commenters who implicated Star's well-documented racist comments in years-old videos. Kardashian West quickly jumped to Star's defense on Snapchat, saying, "I do believe in people changing and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt and accept you know, that people change and move on. And I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes I've made in the past. So let him live." Kardashian West's justification of Star's hateful past didn't sit well with her followers,...

The Nike Cortez Is Getting Another Makeover

landscape-1502812912-alc-nike1

In an effort to continue shoe of summer domination, Nike has teamed up with Andrea Lieberman, celebrity stylist and A.L.C. founder, to reimagine the Nike Cortez in three luxe new colorways.

Cortez by A.L.C, $100; see nordstrom.com for on-sale details

Lieberman has styled her ready-to-wear collections with the Nike Cortez for six seasons, so it's no surprise the brand looked to the designer for a reimagining. "I'm a '70s kid, so I grew up with the famous Farrah Fawcett Cortez poster on my wall and the iconic shoes on my feet," she says. "The Cortez have always slid right into my wardrobe. Through the '70s, '80s, and '90s, I wore them very casually, pairing them with jeans and a tee...

She’s Like A Rainbow

landscape-1502766269-elle-shes-like-a-rainbow
I got slammed for not wearing makeup for my wedding. "Trust me, you'll want to, like, even things out for photos," said one friend a few weeks before the big day, her eyes darting to the archipelago of faded blemishes on my cheek. "You're not gonna wear any foundation?" another asked anxiously. (I did end up going barefaced—but with smudgy eyeliner and my lips dabbed with Lip Smacker Dr. Pepper Lip Balm, the most fresh-to-death hint of color in all the land.) Turns out going sans foundation when your skin is less than perfect is puzzling to girlfriends and maybe even regarded as a bit like airing one's dirty laundry in public. Yet the stir my almost au naturel look caused is nothing compared to...
