1111
It’s a safe bet that most of us know our way around a bold lipstick at this point—toss a matte red, deep burgundy or bright orange our way and we won’t flinch. Something we may be less skilled at achieving? A statement-making eye, which were a focal point across several Fall 2015 runways. We’re not talking about a little extra mascara, either: we’re talking about seriously cool new eyeliner ideas that not only feel fresh, but convey the message that you’re not effing around when it comes beauty this fall. Here, we talked to some of the best makeup artists in the business to find out their favorite bold liner looks from the runway, and got their tips for making them work on this side of the catwalk.

On a soul defining Sunday of London Fashion Week, Paul Smith unveiled his new self while Mary Katrantzou took to the cosmos and Louis Vuitton opened a window to the mind of Nicolas Ghesquière. photography jason lloyd evans Doctors always complain they can't go to a wedding without the person sitting next to them asking them all sorts of personal medical questions. Well, what do you think it's like to tell people you work in fashion? "So what are the trends right now? What's in this summer?" You want to explain it's an increasingly impossible question to answer (but you give up and settle for "florals"), because fashion right now, more than ever before, is about the soul...

Spring 2016 Runway Trends to Buy Now

unnamed
As the spring shows came to an end, we found ourselves anxiously tallying all the looks we wanted to re-create on our own. Rather than wait until 2016 rolls around, why not shop the best runway trends now — especially since so many of them will transition into fall with ease? Most of the really wearable new trends are hybrid, new-and-improved takes on what's already happening in fashion, with a more modern and relatable approach. Jason Wu and Cushnie et Ochs showed ruffled dresses that were light and elegant, rather than poufy. Off-the-shoulder pieces were updated with straps and intricate necklines at Adam Selman andDerek Lam, and fringe lost its bohemian vibe with modern shredded hems at Prabal Gurung and Dion...

Your Diet Coke Is Giving You The Munchies

elle-nails-1
So much for trying to cut back on calories with that diet soda. According to a recent study, drinking diet soda can have the opposite effect. One professor at University of Illinois​ analyzed the drinking and eating habits of more than 22,000 American adults who kept track of everything they chewed and sipped during a 48-hour period. And what he found was pretty striking. Here's the skinny—or not-so-skinny, in this case: Diet soda drinkers tend to munch on foods that are packed with sugar, sodium, fat, and cholesterol as a way of compensating for their low-calorie, artificially-sweetened bubbly beverage. ALCOHOLIC DRINKS AND SUGAR-SWEETENED BEVERAGES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH HIGHER OVERALL DAILY INTAKES, BUT PEOPLE WHO DRINK DIET BEVERAGES CONSUME A GREATER PERCENTAGE OF NON-NUTRITIOUS FOOD.

Gaybies: In Their Own Words

gaybies-in-their-own-words-1442247681
Earlier this year, two friends of mine - a female couple - broke the news they were pregnant. It was stupidly exciting for everyone: they'd been trying for months to conceive and now it was real. Like my boyfriend and I, our friends are a mixed-race couple, so I spent the next few minutes idiotically fawning over what the baby might look like. "Oh it's going to be so cute," I said. "It'll have your hair, but your eyes, and—" "Uh, Ben," one said, laughing. "That's not actually how it works." (That's right: for a moment there, same-sex parenting seemed so natural and inevitable to me, I'd actually forgotten the basics of biological reproduction.) Right now, roughly 11% of gay adult men and 33%...

5 Must-Know Styling Tips Straight From NYFW

At borh Sandy Liang and Adam Selman, models wore patterned bows in their hair. Throwing on a solid satin bow may feel a bit juvenile and over thought, so opt for thick, patterned piece of matte fabric and knot it direcity into the hair.
At this point, fashion week has become a huge spectacle. It's a place to see others and a place to be seen, snapped, and posted into a massive street-style roundup. But putting aside all the noise and hollow chatter surrounding the shows, style and creativity are still at the core of Fashion Week.

Fuck Yeah! NYFW’s Coolest Rebels

1
Breaking the rules will never not be in fashion. It’s how great style comes about and fabulous inspiration is found. Staying in the lines is not, by any means, what New York Fashion Week is about, either. True, there are designers and street-style stars who are Classic with a capital C. But then there are those who think way outside the box and give a polite middle finger to the system. While others celebrate the shows, we’re all about celebrating those moments that challenged the system and shook the proverbial tents. They’re the rebels of fashion week we’ll be looking to for confidence when the going gets a little tough. Bolder is always better, after all.   Photo...
