Bella Hadid Gives Her Birkin Bag The Ultimate Cool Girl Makeover

spl1635880_036
Bella Hadid is upping her accessory game. Earlier this week, the model pushed the envelope in next-level ugly-pretty Nikes with a crushed velvet yellow finish, only to follow it up by sporting another transformative add-on with a twist the next day: a silver Birkin. She carried the bag to dinner at Zuma last night in New York, instantly breathing new life into the most classic of wardrobe pieces (and it did wonders for her off-duty style, too). Hadid kept the shine in check with a compact version that was small enough to fit right alongside her growing collection of micro bags. She was smart to go low-key with the rest of her attire in faded jeans and an unapologetically tiny crop top, braving...

Bella Hadid Steps Out With Her Dapper British Bodyguard

00-story-bella
Bella Hadid knows all too well how to make a statement. In London today, the model sported XXL jeans of JNCO-style proportions that also boasted a waist-whittling corset-style waistband. And like many times before, Hadid also chose to go braless, taking the #FreeTheNipple route in an off-the-shoulder black top. But the outfit’s additions are what pumped some fun into the look, like the natty baker boy cap, glinting earrings, lace-up Liudmila dominatrix-style boots, as well as a standout lime green crossbody bag from Stalvey. But there was another scene-stealer in the mix. Can you spot him? Why, Hadid was also toting around her hulking London-based bodyguard, or rather, the hottest accessory of 2017. This isn’t the first time Hadid has stepped out with...

How a Gallery Girl Dresses For The Job

elm120117figallerygirl-001-1512494476
For the 1942 opening of her gallery Art of This Century, Peggy Guggenheim paired a custom-made white gown with earrings designed for the occasion: one by sculptor (and friend) Alexander Calder, one by painter (and friend) Yves Tanguy—a soigné demonstration of her commitment to the competing schools of abstract and surrealist art on view in her boundary-pushing new space in midtown Manhattan. It’s easy to be a walking work of art in literal statement earrings when you’re a Guggenheim whose friends make MoMA-worthy sculpture one day and earrings for you the next. Today, though, it’s a woman further down the art-world food chain who has captured the imagination of fashion designers and young professional women alike. Enter the gallery girl—the brainy,...

Whether they are scouting San Francisco, their home base, or on a trip to downtown New York, the writer-photographer duo has an eagle eye for well-dressed men and women of a certain age. And each new look comes with an intriguing story. We learn that one octogenarian made her striking mustard yellow shirt with leftover fabric from her seamstress gig and that the couple sporting matching pink hats has been married for 64 years. Another pair in custom-made yellow sweatshirts exercises together every day. Talk about commitment.

Octavia Spencer On Her Style Icons, Beauty Secrets, And Everyday Favorite Things

octavia-1511308750

For all her mega successes, we’d argue that onscreen, Octavia Spencer really hasn’t gotten a fair shake, sartorially speaking: She’s donned a midcentury maid’s uniform (The Help), dystopian hippie garb (The Divergent Series: Allegiant), and mousy secretarial layers (last year’s NASA heartwarmer, Hidden Figures). This month, Spencer, 47, returns to the big screen in The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro’s twisted Cold War fairy tale. Her look? Drab janitorial dresses. And in next month’s pulp thriller Small Town Crime, she’s again stuck in dowdy cardigans. Maybe that’s why in real life, the effervescent Oscar winner is all about leopard prints, spa days, and look-at-me lashes.

At 48, Jennifer Lopez Redefines What It Means To Be a Guess Girl

00-story-jlo-guess
Let’s hear it for Jennifer Lopez, who seems to have it all. The Bronx-born entertainer has been on a roll this year, whether she is performing in glinting Versace garb or casually strolling into Christie’s auction house on a date with Alex Rodriguez. Now, Lopez can add a fashion campaign to her year-end résumé. Today, she released an image for Guess, cheekily captioning it with, “Guess who’s the new Guess girl . . . .” In traditional pin-up fashion, Lopez sports a knotted button-down—though the shirt is completely unbuttoned—along with short shorts and sky-high heels. This comes after J.Lo wore a cropped Guess logo T-shirt in her recently released music video for “Amor, Amor, Amor.” Another fun fact: At 48, Lopez is the oldest...

How Bella Hadid Does Tomboy Style With a Seductive Twist

00-story-bella
Bella Hadid often makes her mark in directional ensembles on the street, red carpet, and runway. But earlier today in Miami, Hadid, joined by fellow models Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, stepped out in a low-key look rooted in classic, tomboy style. She infused the ensemble—a crop top, open button-down shirt, distressed jeans, and simple sneakers—with her signature sultry attitude. Hadid’s latest outing comes on the heels—or rather wings—of her appearance at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai. And while there were no side-eye glances like last year’s run-in with her ex The Weeknd, Hadi amped up the allure for the show’s after-party anyway in a slinky red frock. Today, Hadid offset the boyish nature of her tailored shirt and slouchy jeans with...

CHOKERS

In 2016, Taylor Swift wondered if the choker was going the way of the flower crown. Things got pretty quiet for homegirl after that (before they became explosively loud around her record release), so people continued to constrict their necks with bits of ribbon and shoelaces. But not for much longer, as evidenced by the choker's crossover into memes featuring neck braces. It's time. "In"...
