gallery-1493218670-elle-delish-img-8082
Independent Bookstore Day falls on April 29. To celebrate, the limited edition book A Literary Cocktail Party will be sold for one day only, exclusively at 470 participating indie bookstores. Today at ELLE.com, we're pleased to present an excerpt from the book: Meghan Daum's impassioned, genius ode to rosé. STEP 1: Be a woman. (Sorry, there's no way around this.) STEP 2: Have things to discuss with your friends, who are also women. Many, many things. Important things. The specific topics matter less than the almost unbearable sense of urgency you feel about expressing them and hearing what others have to say in response. Think about these topics for weeks while staring at a date on the calendar marked "drinks with K__,...

Go Behind the Scenes With Pharrell Williams For Chanel’s Exclusive New Gabrielle Video

22

Pharrell may be on diaper duty these days (the multi-hyphenate talent and his wife Helen Lasichanh are the proud new parents of triplets) but he’s also making history at Chanel.

As the first man to star in a bag campaign for the French luxury brand, Williams brings his cooler-than-cool personality in the final Gabrielle video. The previous three films starred Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne and Caroline de Maigret.

Alexis Bledel Steps Back Into The Spotlight With a Fresh Twist On The Classic LBD

01-alexis-lede
What do you wear when it’s time to step back into the spotlight? For Alexis Bledel, it was all about a fresh twist on a classic. Heading out last night for the Hollywood premiere of Hulu’s new adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Bledel chose an embellished take on the LBD. From afar, Bledel’s Cushnie et Ochs piece might have looked like another of the minimalist halter dresses that have become prevalent on the red carpet, but closer inspection revealed that it was anything but basic. Covered in thousands of tiny, colorful glass beads, the piece provided Bledel with plenty of sparkle—and a memorable ensemble for her first big event post-Gilmore Girls revival. Bledel’s look, created with the help of...

Valentino’s Tiny Bag Has a Big Beauty Secret

01-lede-valentino-bag
When Pierpaolo Piccioli took the reins as a solo act at Valentino for the Spring 2017 collection, the fashion set held its breath to see what direction the storied house would take next. The first clue arrived as show opener Noemie Abigail floated down the makeshift runway at Paris’s Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild in a diaphanous pink and black dress, a glossy minaudière hanging by her side with what appeared to be a discreet lipstick holder built in at the clasp. Since that sunlit October afternoon, the petit sacs have become a mainstay of Piccioli’s collections, acting as a window into the creative director’s romantic-yet-grounded vision, whether worn slung across lithe torsos, draped around necks like weighty pendants, or dangled off...

Get Ready to See Bella Hadid’s Hat Everywhere

bella-hadid-01-1493216937

You may not know it, but a lot of trendy celeb street styles get their start thanks to one very influential Hollywood stylist. That would be the person who dresses most of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, the Hadid sisters, a handful of models, and Chrissy Teigen: Monica Rose.
The next trend she's onto? Greek fisherman hats. And once you know what they are, you'll realize she's already made them ~happen~.

"Fisherman hats are cool, very '90s-inspired," Rose said at Coachella's Reebok Classics Crib. "I [just] styled an airport look on Kendall [Jenner] with a little Saint Laurent fisherman hat, but you can literally buy them vintage for like $5 — and they're even better than the YSL version." That's...

Street Style Outfits To Copy This Spring

landscape-1493229334-amy-lede

Spring cleaning is a dreadful task, but there's one area of the house we'll always happily attack: the closet. If looking through last year's clothes doesn't spark instant joy (hat tip, Marie Kondo), you don't need to chuck everything and start from scratch. Just focus on spring 2017 trends, find outfit inspiration that grabs your attention, and start mixing with what you've already got.

Why You Should Forget About Cellulite

900
With all this talk of Kim Kardashian West embracing her cellulite and in the process making some kind of feminist statement (whether consciously or otherwise) it's got me thinking that whilst it is certainly ok to love your cellulite, isn't it ok to not love it too? Because I don't love my cellulite. Sorry. It was one of my first encounters with puberty - meaning I've had a long time to mull over its presence, as well as try some pretty ambitious tactics to get rid of it (think along the lines of the cling film scene in The Full Monty – which doesn’t work). The only thing that makes a dent (or rather the opposite) is a dry body brush. But with...

Venzone Is The Most Beautiful Village In Italy You’ve Never Heard Of Before

venzone-italy-564743751-1493228472
Italy is full of beautiful places, but you're going to want to bump the small town of Venzone to the top of your travel bucket list since it just was voted the most beautiful village in Italy in the 2017 Il Borgo dei Borghi competition. Venzone beat out 19 other shortlisted villages to win the competition, which was decided on by a combination of online voters and a panel of judges. Considering that Italy has been hit by several powerful earthquakes just in the last year alone, it's no surprise that the judges singled out Venzone as a prime example of post-earthquake recovery. Even though you've probably never heard of this town in Italy's Friuli-Venezia Giulia region near the Slovenian border, here's a...
