The Best New Lipsticks For Fall 2017

There's so much more to autumn than burnt siena. Think creamy mocha, spiced mahogany, and the vampiest black cherry you ever did see.

Updating your wardrobe is the easy part. Boots, knits, denim, done. But thanks to eleven innovative shades, updating your go-to makeup look for fall can be just as appealing. This season, think beyond brick and beige.

This Is What Audrey Hepburn Ate Every Day

Getty

And no, there was no dieting involved.

Audrey Hepburn is an icon for more reasons than one. Not only was she a gifted, Oscar-winning actress and dedicated philanthropist, but she also inspired generations of young women with her signature style. She was also famous for her notoriously thin figure, which had been the subject of eating disorder accusations over the years. But as People reports in this week’s cover story, these rumors were never true. In fact, Hepburn was never even partial to dieting. “She loved Italian food and pasta. She ate a lot of grains, not a lot of meat, and a little bit of everything,” her son Luca Dotti said. Hepburn’s longtime partner Robert Wolders said that although the actress did not diet,...

Alyssa Wants To Enter Hypebeast Territory With This Off-White Denim Jacket

Off-White printed denim jacket, $630, available at Net-A-Porter.

The combination of the bleached wash and striped sleeves is calling my name.

There are two sartorial staples that I am invariably and decisively drawn to: denim and stripes. Yes, this makes for a rather "statement piece-free" wardrobe — although I do tend to take more risks with colorful belts, bags and shoes these days — but not only are these items timeless, they also allow for infinite styling opportunities and often get even better with age. And every once in a while, a piece of clothing comes along that combines my two favorite things, and I'm overwhelmed with the desire to purchase it, no matter what the cost. Such is the case with this boxy, light-wash denim jacket by Off-White...

The Politics of a Woman’s Body Hair in the Workplace

GETTYSTOCKBYTE

How much better at my job would I be if I didn't have to add "figuring out what to do about my body hair" to the list of things required for me to do it?

The night before what was indisputably going to be the biggest day of my professional career, I should have been up late prepping interview questions, packing extra batteries for my recorder, or even catching a few extra hours of sleep. Instead, I was staring at the thick, black hair on my legs in frustration.

As a freelancer who mostly works from home, I don't often have to worry about the tendrils of hair that grow, visibly, down my legs. But I was going to be reporting...

10 Things You Need to Know Before Exfoliating Your Face

GETTY

Behold: the answers to all of your exfoliation questions.

If you have sensitive skin, you probably stay away from scrubs because you don't want your skin to be a red, raw-looking mess. And if you're acne-prone, a peel definitely seems insane because breakouts, right? Wrong. Turns out exfoliationcan benefit every skin type. Here's why: "In addition to revealing fresh skin cells, exfoliating removes dead cells from pores, making them appear smaller," says Rachel Nazarian, M.D., a Manhattan derm. Makeup also looks better, says Stalina Glot, an aesthetician at Haven Spa in New York City. "It's like sanding a wall before you paint." The other major perk: "Removing the buildup enhances your skin's ability to absorb everything else, from acne...

Sienna Miller Makes a Stylish Statement for Human Rights—At a Steal

Photo: Splash News

Sienna Miller is currently starring onstage in the West End revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and her post-show exit wardrobe has been an ongoing parade of designer fashion, from Chloé dresses to Rockins printed pajama sets. Last night, Miller seized the opportunity to make a different kind of statement in Everlane’s 100% Human T-shirt.
Though the slogan tee is something of a casual departure for Miller, she elevated the look with a few key styling tricks. Her athleisure trousers had a tweedy finish that almost recalled Savile Row tailoring, while the contrast trim on her Proenza Schouler Hex bucket bag played off the stripes on her adidas shower slides for a clever bit of high-low coordination.

5 Travel Destinations For Pastel Lovers

Less about the hotel and more about the hue.

When you’re trying to decide where to take your summer holidays, there are a number of factors that can quickly turn the idea of a last minute long weekend getaway in to a mammoth 13-hour flight across the Atlantic, in search of a destination that’s obscure enough for you to actually Geotag. Your final decision could be based on finding somewhere with that elusive combination of hedonism and culture (yes, even Ibiza has a contemporary art museum) or you could be on the hunt for somewhere that’s so overwhelmingly aesthetically pleasing that you’ll risk your entire data roaming allowance to get that ‘gram. And now with Pantone’s bubble gum shade of ‘pale dogwood’...
