Style Story : BROOK

brook-klausing_garance-dore_3
Meet Brook, a man who wears Redwing boots and confidently keeps a pink couch in his living room. If that juxtaposition isn’t foretelling of the type of guy he is, hearing his Southern charm as he talks of ease, and being economical but making expensive things just might! He’s traditional in the best ways, mixing vintage army greens with plaid shirts and chunky knits… Items that might go missing should a female set her sights on them! Not to mention his kind eyes and, ok, OK… yes, he is just generally a handsome fellow. Not to downplay his straightforwardlandscaping work — calming spaces like The Surf Lodge and gardens throughout the city that have a Richard Serra vibe, and happen to...

Why Are We So Afraid to Admit We Use Face Makeup?

(ImaxTree)
The other day, I caught myself in a ridiculous lie. While engaged in a beauty-related conversation with a friend, I heard myself telling her I use tinted moisturizer “to, like, even out my skin or whatever.” I fucking hate tinted moisturizer. I use—and love—straight-up foundation. But for some reason I felt weird about admitting it. I know I’m not alone. I recently read a story on another women’s site in which each editor choose their go-to foundation. I eagerly clicked in—as a beauty obsessive, nothing’s better than hearing what other women around my age use—and almost started laughing: Nearly every single pick was prefaced by some variation of “I’m not really a foundation girl, but…” I’m not saying my editorial comrades were lying like...

How to (Safely) Travel Alone as a Woman

It’s a universal truth that vacations are absolutely necessary (go ahead, tell me I’m wrong). Also a truth: Sometimes schedules just don’t align, friends have other plans or don’t have the money to pick up and go, and you’re left with two choices—stay home or go it alone. I’m a huge fan of traveling by yourself—you’re not beholden to your friend’s obnoxious desire to visit every single museum within city limits, and you can eat where you want, stay where you want, and take as many selfies as you want, free of judgment or time constraints. But there’s a downside to all of this. Traveling alone as a woman, sadly, requires vigilance no matter where you are, and especially in...

10 Legit Ways to Save Money in an Expensive City

(ImaxTree)
(ImaxTree)
The pros of living in a big city like New York, San Francisco, or Los Angeles outweigh the cons in every category save one—these metropolises can wreak serious havoc on your finances. And even if you think you’re being smart about money, all those nights out—not to mention some seriously exorbitant rent and that Chloe bag that you just had to have—and you’re left with less than you hoped in your bank account. Sound familiar? “There’s a lot of smiling and nodding going on—women don’t know financial terms or concepts but pretend they do, instead of just asking,” Nicole Lapin, a money correspondent for “The Wendy Williams Show” and author of the new book Rich Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan...

Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner and More Bare Almost All for Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein ad campaign

You may think you’ve seen Kendall Jenner and Justin Bieber‘s ads in every possible permutation, but we guarantee you haven’t seen them quite like this yet. The two stars (along with music heavyweights like Kendrick Lamar, Fetty Wap and FKA twigs) strip down, glam up and give good smolder in the brand’s latest ads, and we’ve got an exclusive peek behind the scenes.

Bieber in particular had a blast on set after his sultry (but serious) black-and-white shoot from last January. “It was much more informal this time around. I was excited I got to skateboard,” he tells PeopleStyle. And lest you think it’s at all awkward to get down to a very...

All the Bizarre Things Models Say They’d Never Eat

foods-models-dont-eat-2
After years spent writing about health, entertainment, fashion, and celebrities, I barely bat an eyelid when I hear about a model’s neurotic eating habits, but a peek inside the restrictive diet of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen left me kind of gobsmacked earlier this month. They don’t touch stuff like caffeine, dairy, sugar, gluten, iodized salt, even fruit, for the most part. The biggest no-no, though? A food group called nightshades, that includes delicious things like tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and eggplants. Other models such as Miranda Kerr are pretty public about their aversion to non-organic produce, and I’ve personally seen a runway star backstage peel an apple, only to eat the skin (WHY!?) and leave the actual fleshy part, and stories...
