The Love-Hate Relationship Every Girl Has wWith Movie Makeover Montages

landscape-1490968721-f6fye6-fix

Some things can make any movie, however bad or Michael Bay-ish, better. A dance number. A wicked soundtrack. Meryl Streep! But throw in a makeover scene, and we'll at least give you a 60 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, even if it's a buddy comedy with Jeremy Renner, featuring Smash Mouth. Fine, an upper 50. Yet however enjoyable it might be to watch a diamond in the rough get shined up real pretty, it's hard to not be a little like, "Hmm, this changing-yourself-to-appeal-to-someone-else thing doesn't feel right, my dude."

Satisfying! But Paolo is so mean! And why can't a princess have Gucci hair anyway? To further investigate the Glow-Up Paradox, first, some thoughts. Pros Makeovers are often set to Hoku or...

Interiors Inspiration from Milan’s Marble-Clad Hallways

364614
Labyrinth, vestibule, hallway: there are myriad terms by which to reference a building’s entranceway, and such an array only serves to highlight how distinctly underrated they are. In Italy, they are known as ingressi – an elegant term which mirrors the majesty of Milan’s many exquisite hallways – and they are also the subject of new coffee table book, Karl Kolbitz’ Entryways of Milan, published by Taschen, which launches this month. Goethe once wrote, “Every beginning is cheerful; the threshold is the place of expectation,” and it’s this approach to a hallway as a discreetly powerful and potent space that occupies the book’s approach. Since the 1500s, Milan has been dubbed the ‘ugly city’ – its 20th century foray into industrialism only furthered the...

Tattoo Artist Tati Compton on Instagram and the Occult

364574
There are a few things Instagram loves, but essentially it mostly comes down to cool people, clever imagery and human flesh. It’s rare to see someone manage to propagate this holy trinity as brilliantly, succinctly and cliché-avoidantly as stick ‘n’ poke tattoo artist Tati Compton. Her beautifully expressive linework and distinctive illustration style have placed her firmly in the vanguard of artists leading a recent revival of the somewhat primitive stick ‘n’ poke technique. For the uninitiated, in contrast to the buzzing needle gun used in most tattoo application, stick ‘n’ poke uses a needle dipped into ink, which then punctures the skin to create a permanent mark. Historically, the practice was mostly favoured by folk drawing onto friends, or...

Christian Louboutin Makes Crayons Now

landscape-1490213348-nor-1344
There's a part in The Devil Wears Prada where Andy Sachs sells her tainted designer wardrobe, using it to fund her new life as an idealistic newspaper rookie. Five years ago, Australian artist CJ Hendry did the same thing, unloading every investment piece in her closet onto eBay. "I was studying finance, and hopeless at it. But I didn't believe that being creative was an actual job, so I got a job on the sales floor at Chanel in my hometown—Brisbane, Australia," says Hendry. "I did it for a while and then I said, 'Right, I've got to do this. I've got to be an artist.' So I sold everything I owned on eBay—bags, shoes, jackets, everything— and I made...

CULTURE 15 Famous Puppies You Should be Following on Instagram

제목 없음
Puppy is a loose label. To some (the Oxford dictionary), a puppy is a “young dog.” To others (me), puppy is used to describe a cute dog of any age. For example, most of my canine introductions start with me shrieking “Hi, puppy!” in the highest pitch humanly possible. It doesn’t matter if the dog is 15 days or 15 years old—I don’t discriminate. Instagram is full of baby-voice-worthy pups of all shapes, sizes and ages. You might think Instagram is a place for selfies, street style and latte art, but I’m here to tell you that Instagram is a place for puppies. Puppies who wear Supreme, eat brunch and have book deals, PR agents and celebrity BFFs. If you aren’t following these puppies already, then you’re doing...
