How to Wear a Graphic Tee: 9 Street Style Stars Show Us How It’s Done

Kourtney Kardashian Says an Avocado Smoothie Is the Secret to Getting Shiny Hair

Aside from my morning tea, one thing that gets me going in the morning isavocado toast. Who doesn’t love avocados drizzled with olive oil and sesame seeds? Enter the Kourtney Kardashian avocado hair smoothie, a concoction her hairstylist, Andrew Fitzsimons, who has also styled Ashley Graham, Joan Smalls, and Hailey Baldwin, discovered when caring for her hair.

With its lovely white scarf of beach that runs along Mexico's Yucatán coast, Tulum is a well- known destination among the style set: I ran into another ELLE staffer on the beach while there in April; one of my two daughters bumped into a couple of school friends and their famous-actor parents at dinner.
