Keanu Reeves Is The Neo Face Of Saint Laurent

It seems like only yesterday (or, more accurately, two weeks ago) that the internet suddenly remembered Keanu Reeves is a heartthrob. Now he’s a heartthrob wearing Saint Laurent. The 54-year-old (yes, really) “John Wick” star is the iconic fashion house’s newest scruffy face, according to the two black-and-white photos it shared on Instagram Tuesday. Pictured is a Pensive Keanu (a close relative of Sad Keanu) in all black. In another shot, he’s wearing a pair of sunglasses. Come to think of it, he looks a whole lot like an updated and arguably much more fashionable version of Thomas A. Anderson, or Neo, his famous character in “The Matrix.” Fans praised Saint Laurent for choosing Reeves in the comments section of each photo, celebrating Reeves’ look but also his character, which the intern...

We Need To Talk About The Night King’s Perfectly Shaped Nails

Warning: Spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 8, Episode 3 ― and serious nail envy ahead. I still feel slightly in the dark when it comes to the full story of what exactly the Night King set out to achieve on “Game of Thrones,” but I’ll tell you one thing I want after watching Sunday night’s episode: his nails. I’m not here to speculate over whether it really would have been possible for goddess master fighter Arya Stark to have snuck past a gaggle of White Walkers to subsequently catapult herself into the air, protecting Bran from the Night King and fulfilling her prophecy of being the one to defeat him. I’m here to speculate on how the evil king managed to grow and maintain perfect stiletto nails that I would have trouble using to type on my computer with ― let alone ride dragons, wreak...

Halima Aden Becomes Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s First Hijab-Wearing Model

Sports Illustrated has, in many ways, made good on its commitment to evolve its outdated perceptions of beauty by increasing representation over the past few years. It looks like the 2019 Swimsuit issue is no exception. Halima Aden will become the first model to appear in the magazine wearing a hijab when the highly anticipated yearly issue hits newsstands on May 8. The Somali-American model, who has made a career of firsts, is pictured wearing two custom burkinis. It’s a full-circle moment for Aden, who made headlines in 2016 for becoming the first Miss Minnesota contestant to compete wearing a hijab and burkini. She was also the first person to wear a hijab on the cover of Allure. A career full of firsts, indeed. Yu Tsai Halima Aden is the first model to ever appear in the iconic magazin...

The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge’s Most Memorable Fashion Moments

On April 21, 2011, the Duke of Cambridge was wearing his military uniform and the soon-to-be Duchess of Cambridge donned a custom Alexander McQueen gown designed by Sarah Burton. To call the dress iconic would be an understatement. From every angle, it was wonderfully dramatic yet somehow not over-the-top. When the couple stepped out of the cathedral for the first time as husband and wife, they looked like they’d stepped straight out of a Disney movie. Visually speaking, it’s perhaps the most memorable image of the couple there is. But since that day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have given us plenty of memorable moments to look back on. In celebration of the couple’s eighth wedding anniversary on Monday, we’ve rounded up our favorites, starting (of course) with the day they wed.

The Best Look From Taylor Swift’s ‘Me’ Video, And How To Get It

The music video, released at the same time as the song, is a candy-colored spectacle. There’s a pale pink snake ― a nod to Swift’s “Reputation” era ― that bursts into a million butterflies, as well as a technicolor paint storm, an entire marching band clad in millennial pink outfits and a whole lot of really great pastel suits. Swift herself wears a pale yellow number, while her dancers are dressed in various pastel shades of blue, pink, purple and green. Suits are also extremely versatile, paired with a T-shirt and sneakers for a casual look or easily dressed up with heels. If you’re going for something a little more scandalous, you can try a lace bra or camisole underneath your blazer, or skip that layer altogether, a la Shay Mitchell. If you’re ready to invest in a suit ― and we say inv...

How To Groom Your Beard To Keep It From Being A Filthy Mess

According to a recent study from the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland, men’s beards carry more bacteria ― some of which could be harmful to health ― than the hair of dogs. Sounds pretty gross, right? Well, bearded men shouldn’t panic just yet. It should be noted that this particular study was extremely small and the sample groups weren’t equal; 18 men were tested versus 30 dogs. The researchers based their conclusion on the fact that every single man tested had high counts of bacteria living in their beards, while only 23 of the dogs had the same levels. So while there were more dogs with high bacteria counts than men, percentage-wise, 100% of men had high counts compared with about 77% of the dogs.

How To Dress For A Court Appearance, According To Legal Experts

In the world of high-profile court cases, notably when celebrities (ahem, Anna Delvey, Lori Loughlin or Felicity Huffman) are involved, a visit to the courtroom can seem like its own sort of fashion show. We can look at Delvey (real name Anna Sorokin) as an example. The “Socialite Scammer,” as she’s been dubbed, arrived for a court appearance on March 27 wearing a black choker seen ’round the web. Media outlets couldn’t help but bring attention to her choice of accessory and even seemed to focus more on her appearance than any other aspect of her case. It was even revealed that Delvey hired the stylist Anastasia Walker to help advise her on courtroom ensembles. Then there’s Loughlin, whose tan suit and matching neutral boots were covered by various sites. And people noticed when Elizabeth ...

Taylor Swift’s Dreamy Gown Could Be Yet Another Clue About Her Upcoming Project

Taylor Swift keeps dropping little clues leading up to her big day.  The singer, who has hinted that she is revealing a new project on Friday, donned an ethereal pink and yellow gown by J. Mendel at the Time 100 Gala on Tuesday night in New York City.  The dreamy, strapless dress was color-blocking perfection, complete with billowing sleeves that extended around the back of the gown.

Some fans have speculated that the project will be an album, while others think it’s a clothing line. Taylor Hill / Getty Images The dress featured an interes...

Brie Larson’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Premiere Look Is Marvel-ous

Look, we get it. You’re busy, you have things to do besides scroll through red carpet photos. But do yourself a favor and just look at this one of Brie Larson. Paired with a natural makeup look, a bold brow and a beachy lob, the outfit sent Twitter into a tailspin (or, to be more specific, a “spiral”). Fashion writer and editor Maura Brannigan summed it up pretty perfectly: “This look shot me straight into a spiral last night and I’m pleased to announce that I haven’t yet recovered!” she tweeted. This look’s superpowers were not lost on Larson, makeup artist Nina Park or hairstylist Bryce Scarlett, who each shared not one, not two, but three photos of the look on social media. Eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that Larson’s jewelry, much like her co-star Scarlett Johansson’s, was inf...

Elizabeth Holmes’ Exposed Neck Makes A Rare Appearance In Court

The world hasn’t seen much of Elizabeth Holmes as of late. But when the disgraced Theranos CEO arrived in court in San Jose, California, on Monday, we got a glimpse of something even rarer ― her neck. Holmes appeared in a light blue, untucked button-front shirt, a gray blazer and gray slacks ― a stark departure from what was once her signature polished turtlenecked look. Bloomberg via Getty Images Her affinity for black turtlenecks has been widely examined and reported on since the rise and epic fall of her once widely revered, fraudulent blood-testing technology corporation. She claims she’s been wearing them since childhood, but plenty of people have been quick to credit her fascination with wanting to emulate fellow iconic turtleneck-wearer Steve Jobs. Either way, the image of an eyelin...

Ridiculously Puffy Sleeves Are The Spring Trend That Just Won’t Quit

We saw plenty of puffy-sleeved styles come down the runways during the spring 2019 season, notably at Rodarte, Mara Hoffman and Marc Jacobs, who took the trend to new levels. Puffy sleeves have also been all over the Instagram accounts of the biggest fashion influencers. Oversized sleeves no doubt make a style statement, so if you’re a little hesitant about trying the trend, we’d suggest making them the star of your outfit; pair a puffy-sleeved top with a pair of simple jeans or a skirt, or to make things even easier, try a puffy-sleeved dress with classic white sneakers or a pair of minimal sandals. To anyone who might be worried about unintentionally looking like a football player, we say embrace it. But also remember that you can start small. If you need a little inspiration before you ...

The Challenges And Triumphs Of Navigating Natural Hair In Multiracial Families

Natural hair care is a relatively young industry and new territory for even the most skilled hair stylists. Curly-girl hair products and YouTube tutorials for natural hair only emerged in the last decade. Even with these resources, getting knowledge about textured hair is a journey most women of color have to go through on their own. Our society still clings to Eurocentric beauty standards, while naturally curly or “ethnic” hair is relegated to its own section on the shelf at the drugstore. So what do you do if you appear to fall under the category of Eurocentric beauty ideals, but are raising children who might not? Kylie Jenner and her sisters are among the most famous women raising multiracial children. And despite the family’s very (very) problematic experiences with their own hairstyl...
