How To Catch The First Major Meteor Shower Of 2017

image
Your New Year's celebrations might have been full of confetti, fireworks, and the glittering crystal ball drop, but that's nothing compared to what this coming week has in store. That's because the night sky is ringing in 2017 with the first meteor shower of the year, the Quadrantids. Not all meteor showers favor the Northern Hemisphere, but this one does, making it worth braving chilly temperatures for a glimpse. You'll want to bundle up and head outside on the night of January 3 into the morning of January 4, when the shower is expected to hit its peak. At that point, Space.com predicts there will be up to 120 meteors flashing through the sky each hour. According to EarthSky, your chances of...

5 Last-Minute New Year’s Eve Outfits Using One $20 Dress

landscape-1483038235-nye-outfits-index

There's no time like the present to fall back in love with your local shopping mall (it's warm, there's a food court, etcetera, etcetera). In the age of online shopping, it's oddly easy to forget that there's an option beyond clicking and waiting, but trolling the mall is a high school-throwback worth revisiting, especially if you neglected to plan ahead and order the perfect thing for New Year's Eve. We've shopped out five different outfits—all centered around one perfectly festive dress—that you can most likely find at a shopping-plex near you.

Moon Juice Founder Amanda Chantal Bacon’s Top 3 Tips to Restart Your Body in 2017

01-holding-3-best-things-for-body
Moon Juice founder Amanda Chantal Bacon has come a long way from slinging green elixirs at the tiny Venice, California, storefront she opened in 2012. Three Los Angeles locations, a bounty of cult-favorite pantry items, and a whole line of supplement dusts later, there seems to be little the wellness entrepreneur isn’t doing to help advance the conversation around nourishing beauty from the inside out. This fall, Bacon released her latest contribution to the cause, The Moon Juice Cookbook, an instant classic with plant-based recipes that are not just good for you (there are 30 pages dedicated to probiotics and fermented foods alone!), but delicious, too—and gorgeous to boot. With a new store in New York on the horizon, Bacon has...

Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid Serve Up NYE Looks in True Supermodel Style

2016 was a good year for Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, and last night the pair toasted to their successes in Los Angeles. Celebrating New Year’s Eve with a crowd of friends that included Hailey Baldwin and ASAP Ferg, Jenner and Hadid headed out to Hollywood hangout Mr. Nice Guy, pulling off one of 2016’s most risqué trends along the way: lingerie dressing. Hadid, who is a big fan of midriff-baring, wore an outfit that didn’t leave much to the imagination—a sheer, gray cropped turtleneck and matching high-waisted flares that revealed her black bra-and-panty set. Jenner opted for another form of boudoir dressing, and was dressed in a sultry lace-trimmed slip dress with a loosely fastened leopard-print robe.

How To Wear Pink: The New Rules

pink1-620x492

Ever since the advent of the pink coat a few seasons ago, the catwalks have been getting ever rosier. For AW16, there was practically a pink parade. Chanel, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana… fashion’s heavyweights all showed off every shade of this colour under the sun. But banish any thoughts of sugary sweetness; the new way to wear pink is with a serious dose of cool, top-to-toe.

It’s not just the catwalks promoting pink, either. Fashion’s coolest girls have been flaunting their style credentials in everything from fuchsia co-ords to pale pink separates, showing us all how it’s done.

Hawaiian Beauty Secrets for the Landlocked

landscape-1483118951-elle-january-2017-tropical-dream-01
Risa Hoshino has some sage advice for cutting bangs to best suit the shape of one's face. "They have rules for that, but you don't have to follow them," says the jet-setting hair and makeup guru, whose Oahu upbringing more than a little inspires her laid-back-with-a-twist aesthetic. "I have these ridiculous short, crooked bangs that probably don't match my face shape. But, whatever!" It's this "whatever" ethos, fused with a unique dexterity, that is the 33-year-old's spark plug. It's also the secret of her artistic range—why she's able to cater to those who "like to do that club makeup thing" but just as easily embellish a no-makeup makeup look with a featherlight dusting of bronzer over eyelids for a burnishing...

How Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, Alexa Chung, and More Did New Year’s Eve Style

01-nye-it-girl
As the clock struck midnight this past Sunday, it was no surprise to find our Instagram timeline bursting with action. So many of our most fashionable follows had already taken to their pages to ring in the new year and document the exploits of their evening. But the coolest girls among them were hardly celebrating in the most predictable ways. No, a sequined dress and a hackneyed Champagne toast wouldn’t do. SZA skipped the party circuit altogether in favor of a New Year’s Eve dip amid Hawaii’s idyllic waterfalls. Alexa Chung chucked in a banal party hat for a star-spangled custom headpiece; the Ziegfeld Girl–inspired look sparkled against her brocaded off-the-shoulder dress. This while Juliana Huxtable deejayed the night away in...
