9 Spring Manicure Shades That Prove Blue Is the Warmest Color

blue-nail-polishes
Lately, we’re feeling blue. The expressive color has taken over spring makeup bags everywhere, and we can’t help but notice that the hue has also migrated to many a set of chic fingernails. This isn’t the angsty cyan that graced your rebellious, un-manicured hands in the mid-’90s, however—the new blues are softer, more delicate, and all-around gorgeous. For a sophisticated take on the modern blue nail, “opt for a squoval shape on short or medium nails,” says New York City manicurist Jin Soon Choi, referring to a hybrid of square and oval. “In general, blue polish is very easy to wear since it is flattering on almost all skin types.” But those with lighter complexions, take note: “Faded pigments will clash...

Bogotá Restaurants That Only the Locals Know About

From bustling food carts that are upending traditional street food to the opening of innovative, high-concept restaurants, the food scene in Colombia’s energetic capital is on the rise. “When I was growing up, it was hard to go out for a decent meal,” recalls Yasmin Sabet, Bogotá native and designer of chic Colombian accessories brand Mola Sasa. “Now there’s a profusion of hip restaurants popping up every day. At the most popular spots, it’s become tough to get a table, even on a Monday!” And while Sabet has plenty of love for the city’s classics like established Casa Vieja, which serves up dishes such as ajiaco (a hearty Andean soup) in an old colonial mansion, and the wildly convivial and kitschy...

Chloë Sevigny Reinvents the Schoolgirl Look for Grown-Ups

00-holding1
It’s finally spring, and leg-baring season is in full swing on both coasts. One silhouette that’s proving popular among A-listers right now is the schoolgirl minidress. Spotted outside the Dior show on Olivia Palermo, and then again onNatalia Vodianova, the playground favorite has been adopted by Hollywood’s chicest. The fit-and-flared look is particularly flattering on actress Chloë Sevigny, who was seen out in New York earlier this week. Sevigny’s turtleneck layering trick was a nod to ’90s supermodels such as Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell. The gilded buckle at the waist of her dress added a hint of contrast, while to-the-knee socks and lace-up booties had classic classroom charm.   From Vogue...

The Busy Girl’s Guide To Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

image
On any given day — heck, we’re not even talking about particularly long days — there are a whole host of obstacles that get in the way of cooking our own meals. Surely our intentions to save money, be aware of what goes into our food, and act on our creative impulses are good. But the sheer quantity of lists required is overwhelming. At minimum, there’s the recipes-to-try list, the grocery-shopping list, and the directions list. Though we suggest you adhere to the directions below, the three recipes here work for multiple meals while breezing past the recipe-hunting and frenzied-grocery-shopping steps. Each is made with ingredients like eggs, canned tuna, and Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing — the stuff that most...

The Fake-Meat Burger So Realistic It Fooled My Entire Family

impossible-burger-cooked-620x445

The burger was everything I expected one to be: juicy, dense, chewy, salty, and satisfyingly fatty. But unlike every other burger I’ve eaten, this one was 100 percent meat-free. And it was doing a shockingly good job at convincing my brain that the substance in my mouth was, in fact, meat.

impossible-burger-patties-cooking-1024x683
I recently taste-tested a new meat-free burger called the Impossible Burger as a roomful of marketing executives from Impossible Foods, based in Redwood, CA, scrutinized my every bite. The mini patties, prepared by consulting chef Traci Des Jardins (of San Francisco’s Jardinière and The Commissary), look, sizzle, feel, and even bleed like beef burgers. At a certain point, knowing these “bloody” patties in front of me...

Divine Secrets of the Handful-of-Almonds Sisterhood

landscape-1461000162-elle-celebchart-index

There are exceptions, of course. But for a certain set of Hollywood A-listers, the paragon of afternoon snacks is a dozen or so almonds. Always.
These A-list women have more in common: They "cheat" with dark chocolate and have a weakness for cigarettes. They love dogs and Cabo. If they didn't color their hair ever-so-slightly different shades of blond, we might suspect they were secretly the same person.

But, no! Each of these women is a universe. Together, they have shown us the path to wellness, which involves gallons of water and diligent SPF application. Here, we follow them down the trail they have blazed, celebrating all they have in common and the very, very minute ways in which they differ.
Join us, friends. It's going to be a sun-kissed journey.
