rapunzel-hair-1513797213

We first would like to congratulate you on the fact that you’ve managed to grow your hair out a few inches since last year—those weekly deep-conditioning treatments and no-heat-tool Tuesdays have really been paying off.
But now, we’re going to show you the ultimate hair inspiration to end all inspiration: Anastasiya Sidorova, a Russian woman whose natural red hair is 42 inches long. YUP. YUUUUP. We're sorry to upstage your ponytail.

Видео заряжено на бешеный рост волос, лайкайте😁 - Так в каком городе я живу?😁 Теперь с точной уверенностью могу сказать, что живу я в Москве на пмж, а Петербурге жила 2 года. Туда я поехала за своим молодым человеком, но не сложилось у нас. Он военнослужащий, родина приказала служить в СПб😁...

5 Beautifully Bizarre Makeup Trends

1200x600 (1)

For Denmark-based makeup artist Sofie Petersen, Instagram has become a space to freely unleash her most unorthodox beauty ideas, from crown-shaped eyebrows to pierced lashes and melting eyelids.
Her polarizing looks are either loved or loathed, shared wildly across the Internet and challenging viewers to question why they've been trained to think about makeup within such strict standards.

We asked the burgeoning artist to create five original beauty looks, all of which she says were inspired by "natural, everyday elements." Check them out and learn more about Petersen's gorgeous outsider work, below.

How did you first get started with beauty? I always liked make-up as a teenager — didn't see it as an art form, but just a way to get pretty. Then I stopped going to...

What Are The Most Searched Fashion Terms Of 2017?

1190500

Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.

With the end of the year fast-approaching, the time has come for all of those end-of-year round-ups. Along with the highest-paid models and the most liked brands on Instagram, new research by fashion search platform Lyst has now revealed this year’s most looked up terms. Taking the top spot was ‘power’, although maybe it referred to a lack of it? It could also be referring to the power suits and shoulders that we saw at Vetements, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga. Empowerment is a running theme in the list, with ‘woke’ coming in second place. After finding itself added to the Oxford English Dictionary this summer, activism also cropped up on the runway via Dior’s “We should all be feminists” t-shirts, as well as pro-black sweaters and that viral Frank Ocean tee. While you might think...

Brilliant Images Of Celebrities In Looks You Wish They’d Wear

1510336502252-dressup4

"Fantasy Dress Up" is an Instagram-turned-magazine documenting the best red carpet looks that never happened (including Hillary Clinton in a pink Louis Vuitton pantsuit).

Kendall and Kylie Jenner: burgundy knit slip dresses from Céline’s pre-fall 15 collection. Britney Spears: shredded denim courtesy of Marques’Almeida spring/summer 12. Helen Mirren as a mossy Marni burlap vision. These award-worthy looks never made it to any best-dressed lists inPeople or US Weekly, because they never actually hit the red carpet. But Richie Talboy and Lucas Lefler, creators of the popular Instagram (since 2014) and now magazine, Fantasy Dress Up, are creating a world in which celebrities have no branding contracts and tremendous sartorial backbone. “In our age, everyone wants a genuine, unique moment to share on social media,”...

The Instagram Unearthing Pics From Your Fave Fashion Mags

@magazine_fan is @dazedfashion’s account of the week

Run by Rosanna Tich – a Hackney-based woman working in public relations, marketing and communication with an encyclopedic knowledge of fashion – @magazine_fan is a digital archive of the pages that make up the last 50 years of fashion publishing. It’s as much a commentary on how fashion, styling and photography have changed over the last half-century years (Tich argues the first has stayed the same, while the latter two – styling and photography – have defined each era), as it is a way for Tich to share her extensive personal collection with those who have requested to dive into it over the years. “While I try and only post photographs and clothes that I like,...

How I Used Instagram To Become a J.Crew Catalog Model

hol17-313-d-web-1509969453 (1)

It all started with a simple little hashtag. After attending J.Crew's fall 2017 ready-to-wear presentation back in February 2017 I created the hashtag #CastMeJCrew because—you guessed it—I wanted to be apart of their next fashion week presentation. You see, I've loved the brand for years now. The way they encourage personal style through pieces that are fashionable, but affordable and not too over-the-top has always been an inspiration. Their preppy-with-a-twist aesthetic really speaks to my Virginia roots and I've been a J.Crew girl for a while.

starting my campaign to model in next season's @jcrew presentation today. Loved everything about it, especially this model and look 🔥#castmejcrew #nikkiforjcrew

The modern way of shopping is likely familiar: casually scroll through Instagram, and a few rabbit holes later you stumble across a cool girl wearing something you need to buy. A couple more swipes and you suddenly realize every cool girl is wearing the same friggin' thing. That's how Réalisation Par, the Australian-based clothing brand, burst onto the scene: the internet's version of word of mouth. Next thing you know Baader-Meinhof kicked into gear and, suddenly, you saw brand was everywhere.
