Elton John’s Most Gloriously Over-The-Top Costumes Through The Years

If there’s one man who understands the importance of flashy concert tour costumes, it’s Elton John. The iconic singer, whose career is the focus of the upcoming “fantasy musical” “Rocketman,” has never been one for subtlety on tour. John was hands down one of the biggest music acts of the ’70s, and we’d go as far as to say he’s just as widely known for his extravagant outfits as his music. Who could forget his sequined Los Angeles Dodgers uniform, created by costume designer extraordinaire Bob Mackie? Or all those glorious, feathered hats? And, of course, we can’t talk about Elton John without mentioning his collection of eyewear. No one can pull off oversized glasses quite like the multiple Grammy Award winner. “I can’t believe how sartorially crazy I was, particularly in the ’70s!” In ho...

Reese Witherspoon’s Most ’90s Fashion Moments Ever

These days, we’re used to seeing the “Big Little Lies” actress strike a glamorous pose in gorgeous gowns by the likes of Valentino, Zac Posen and Stella McCartney. But in the early days of her career, her style was a lot more laid-back and casual. It was the ’90s, after all. Witherspoon made her film debut in 1991′s “The Man in the Moon,” and throughout the decade of grunge, she appeared in cult favorites like “Cruel Intentions” and “Election.” Her style was very much reflective of the era’s biggest trends. She wore plenty of monochromatic looks and solid colors, crop tops, spaghetti straps and slim, ankle-length skirts and dresses. There were also a couple of chokers thrown into the mix, because did you even live through the ’90s if you didn’t wear a choker? In honor of the Oscar-winner’s...

What Everyone Can Learn From The Indian Beauty Formula

In the U.S., makeup and personal care are part of a multi-million dollar industry that’s constantly trying to sell us new, often chemical-filled products that promise to (almost magically) get rid of our skin problems and leave us looking clean and clear and under control. In recent years, however, we’ve seen a big shift toward organic, eco-friendly products. According to Persistence Market Research, the global natural and organic personal care market is expected to reach a value of almost $22 million by 2024. Natural and organic skin care has roots in different countries around the world, notably India. For many women in India, skin care is more than just a cream or face wash; it’s a lifestyle. Below, four women, either from India or of Indian descent, share their time-tested formulas for...

What To Know About Issey Miyake, The Man Behind Elizabeth Holmes’ Turtlenecks

Elizabeth Holmes, the disgraced ex-CEO and founder of the now-defunct biotech company Theranos, has become associated with many things: scandal, deception, fraud and, of course, black turtlenecks. Much like Steve Jobs, Holmes adopted a uniformlike wardrobe that was anchored by classic black turtlenecks. But they weren’t just any turtlenecks: They were Issey Miyake turtlenecks, the specific style favored by the Apple co-founder. It’s been said that Holmes tracked down the exact turtlenecks Jobs wore and stocked up when she had the chance. But what exactly was so special about Miyake’s shirts that Holmes just had to have? Here’s the story behind the legendary turtleneck. A (Very) Brief History Of Issey Miyake Pool ARNAL/GARCIA via Getty ImagesIssey Miyake with models at his spring 1992 runwa...

Vintage Hollywood Photos Are The Spring Style Inspiration You Need

Spring is officially here, which means it’s time for a little wardrobe update. After a few too many months of chilly temperatures, we’re ready to ditch our bulky sweaters and coats for something a little lighter. And we’re taking some cues from the women of Old Hollywood. Whatever they were wearing, be it breezy dresses, rompers or jeans, they always looked glamorous. Even when they were playing tennis (and a lot of them apparently did), their outfits were a far cry from the baggy mesh shorts and T-shirts we’d wear today. Luckily, many of the styles the stars of Hollywood’s golden age wore back then are still fairly easy to find at stores like Reformation, Mod Cloth and J.Crew. Below, check out some of our favorite vintage style moments, the perfect inspiration for crafting your new spring...

How To Wear The Skirts-Over-Pants Trend That’s Everywhere Right Now

Wearing skirts and dresses over pants is officially making a comeback, and the look is perfectly suited for all the indecisive folks out there. One thing we love about this trend is that it’s a perfect mix between traditionally masculine and feminine styles. It’s like the fashion equivalent of having your cake and eating it, too: You don’t have to decide between a dress and pants because you can just wear both. As gender lines in fashion are becoming increasingly blurred, it seems like a good time to give this trend a go. Of course, wearing a skirt or dress over pants isn’t a new thing. In traditional Indian dressing, men and women wear a kurta or kurti (a long, tunic-like top) over matching trousers and even jeans, for example. In Vietnam, they have the áo dài, a long gown also worn with ...

Victoria’s Secret Swim Is Back, But Only For People Under A Certain Size

We have one piece of good news for Victoria’s Secret fans still mourning the loss of its beloved swimwear line: The brand has taken the plunge once again. A press release from the brand cited “overwhelming demand” for the decision to bring back swim, a different tune from the one it sang in 2016, when its chief financial officer, Stuart Burgdoerfer, referred to the line as doing “flat-ish business.” Not new, unsurprisingly, is the line’s sizing constraints. Despite backlash against comments by the company’s chief marketing officer, Ed Razek, about not including plus-size or transgender models in its annual fashion show, a petition to boycott the show signed by more than 10,000 people and a shift toward swimwear options in more sizes generally, Victoria’s Secret still appears unwilling to e...

Skin Care Acid Guide: When And How To Use Glycolic, Lactic And More

Acids are everywhere in skin care these days. And we admit, they can be a little intimidating, especially since acid is often associated with chemical burns. When it comes to skin care products, though, acids are used as chemical exfoliators meant to slough away dead skin cells to leave you with a smoother, brighter complexion. But it’s important to know which acids work best for what skin concerns and skin types. You shouldn’t just be layering them on your face all willy-nilly. The first thing you should know about acids is that there are two main types found in skin care products: alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs). Both classes of acids help exfoliate the skin, but they aren’t exactly the same. According to Dr. Nava Greenfield, a Brooklyn-based dermatologist with S...

Max Mara has officially re-released its bold red “Fire Coat” made famous by Nancy Pelosi in her defiant December meeting with President Donald Trump. “Following the viral success of Nancy Pelosi wearing Max Mara’s Fire Coat, the brand is excited to announce the reinstitution of this iconic style,” Max Mara said in a statement Thursday. “Designed in 2011 (FW 2012 collection), Ms. Pelosi wore it for the first time to attend the second inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States in January 2013, and again in December 2018 to attend a meeting with President Trump.” If you were hoping to snag the coat for yourself, you should know it doesn’t come cheap.

Customers Unleash Fury On Sephora Over Lori Loughlin’s Daughter’s Makeup

Sephora customers are passionately urging the brand to cut ties with Lori Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, in the wake of this week’s massive college admission bribery scandal. Giannulli, an Instagram influencer and YouTube beauty vlogger, launched her makeup palette with Sephora in December 2018 while she was a student at the University of Southern California. According to Sephora’s website, the palette, which sells for $28 and appears to be sold out, was her “first ever makeup collaboration.” Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get Olivia Jade Giannulli (and her sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli) into USC and onto the school’s crew team. (Neither daughter participated in the sport, according to court documents.) The c...

The Difference Between A $20 Beautyblender And A $5 Makeup Sponge

Since hitting store shelves in 2003, Beautyblender makeup sponges have become a staple in makeup bags everywhere. But they don’t come cheap. Twenty dollars a pop seems steep, especially when you consider that you’re supposed to replace them every three months. On top of that, you can find much cheaper knockoffs everywhere from Forever 21 to Ulta to CVS and Walgreens. So what exactly sets the original Beautyblender apart from its lower-priced competition? According to the Beautyblender website, the sponges are made with an “exclusive aqua-activated foam with insanely soft texture for an airbrushed finish” and “flawless coverage every time.” HuffPost reached out to the brand for more information, but they did not immediately respond. Off-brand makeup sponges, whose materials are not always l...
