Dior Brings Back Spider Lashes

gettyimages-854153048-1506443280

Dior's invitation may have read, "Why are there no great female artists?" but any woman who's successfully used a contouring brush knows that's a lie. Today's runway beauty looks gave us another opportunity for epic artistry, thanks to some serious spider lashes inspired by '60s beat babes.

Today's makeup look @dior 's SS18 show was all about the lashes. Sixties inspired 🕷SPIDER 🕷lashes. First I applied Diorshow Lash Maximizer, followed by a few coats of Diorshow Pump and Volume Mascara. A natural looking skin with our new Forever Undercover foundation and a hint of lipglow! @diormakeup Thankyou to my team for a great job! #backstage #mascara #lashes🕷

Did This Milan Fashion Show Have The Prettiest Beauty Look Of Them All?

landscape-1506361448-gettyimages-852234986-index

With the jumble-y algorithm and newfangled nine-grid—when all the people want is for their feeds to be arranged chronologically, please!—it takes a special image indeed to stand out in the double-speed fast-forward of Instagram. That might explain the feathery/wavy/reverse/every-which-way eyebrows of the past few months, but as seen as Milan Fashion Week, maybe the craftiest like-trap isn't designed to shock at all.

As this reporter was flicking through Insta fast enough to dislocate a baby-boomer's thumb, one relatively quiet picture was enough put the brakes on. (Note the lack of stunt makeup and nipples.)

Giorgio Armani: Interview With The Maestro

hbz-armani-00-index-1506369224
Early in the morning before Giorgio Armani’s latest couture show in Paris, the maestro is as calm as always, at work with his team in an atelier lined with wardrobe rails of flowing black gowns that make up a significant part of the collection. Every feature is exquisite—intricate crystal beading and embroidery; clouds of dark feathers; fluid layers of tulle and sinuous velvet—while Mr. Armani, watchful and alert as an orchestral conductor, makes his final adjustments to create an elegant symphony that is the purest expression of his prevailing vision of beauty. At 83, he looks remarkably healthy: tanned, trim, and dressed in his signature uniform of a midnight-blue T-shirt and navy trousers. His steady gaze notices everything—as soon as we...

As Seen on Gigi and Bella Hadid

The brilliant minds at M.A.C are going HAM this month with a slew of new and exciting launches including Nicki Minaj's nude lipstick collection. The latest release has the makings of another beauty hit.
M.A.C is set to introduce a Waterweight concealer that, like the Waterweight foundation, promises full coverage without adding any weight. And although the product won't be available to consumers until 2018, it's already made its debut on the runway.

Emily Ratajkowski Wears A Sexy Burlap Dress To Paris Fashion Week

A sack this is not.

Emily Ratajkowski has been making the rounds this fashion month—she sat front row at Marc Jacob's show in New York sporting some faux bangs, and walked the runway in Milan for Bottega Veneta.

As a permanent fixture in the high-fashion world, the model/actress is always dressed by top designers for appearances— from custom-confections to fresh off-the-runway ensembles. So, when Ratajkowski stepped out for Dior's Spring 2018 runway show in Paris this morning in a modern Victorian-inspired look from Brock Collection, we had our usual reaction, damn, she looks REALLY good.

But we were surprised to learn that Ratajkowski's dress, which features a balconette top and sexy thigh-high slit is actually...

Dior Debuts A New Feminist T-shirt For Spring 2018

Getty

Some were confused about the statement made today at Paris Fashion Week.

Last season, Maria Grazia Chiuri made her debut as Dior's first female creative director with a "We Should All Be Feminists" t-shirt that took the fashion world by storm. For the fashion house's Spring 2018 show today, the designer continued her message of women's empowerment with a new theme and statement-making tee. The show opened with a model wearing a black-and-white striped t-shirt reading, "WHY HAVE THERE BEEN NO GREAT WOMEN ARTISTS?” Initially, viewers on Twitter (and even some of those attending the actual show) were a little confused by this bold question. As blogger Bryan Boy asked on Instagram Stories, "I guess Frida Kahlo is either a man or not...

Crushed Ice Is The Easiest Way To Ruin a Glass Of Anything

Alba Huerta - The Common Lily
When I was in fourth grade, my family got a new refrigerator. It was a pretty big deal. Not because the handle was fully functional. Not because there was more magnetic surface area for hanging robot drawings and crumpled report cards. It was a big deal because there was a crushed-ice feature in the door of the freezer. I’d lived my entire life with cubes, and suddenly, there was another option. This crushed ice thing was incredible to my ten-year-old mind. But I was ten. My small brain was seduced, my young eyes blinded by something new and unfamiliar. Now I see crushed ice for what it is: Crushed ice is a rapidly melting mountain of bullshit. Crushed ice was born...

Alicia Keys & Stella McCartney Team Up For Breast Cancer Awareness

hbz-breast-cancer-embed-1-1506455677
Every two minutes, a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer. To help raise awareness about the importance of prevention, detection, and equal access to care, designer Stella McCartney has created a limited-edition Ophelia Whistling lingerie set to celebrate what she calls “femininity in the face of severity,” along with a corresponding ad campaign featuring Grammy Award–winning singer Alicia Keys. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the lingerie will benefit both the Linda McCartney Centre, a breast-cancer treatment facility in Liverpool, England, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Breast Examination Center of Harlem, an outreach program that offers the local community free screenings, including mammograms, ultrasounds, and MRIs. (The American Cancer Society recommends that women ages...

Saint Laurent Staged Its Spring 2018 Show Underneath The Eiffel Tower

Does it get any more Paris Fashion Week than this?

Saint Laurent set the bar high on Day 1 of Paris Fashion Week by staging a nighttime show underneath the Eiffel Tower.
The French monument sparkled as the ultimate backdrop just moments before the Spring 2018 collection made its way down the catwalk. In terms of a show venue, could it possibly get any more Parisian than this?

Models emerged on the runway as a smoke machine created a dusky glow and the glistening Eiffel Tower lit up the distance.
