Women And Pants: A Timeline Of Fashion Liberation

To say women and pants have had a complicated relationship would be an understatement. As Cassidy Zachary, a fashion historian and co-host of the “Dressed” podcast, told HuffPost, “In Western European and American society, pants are one of the most gendered garments in history.” But, she said, “it wasn’t always that way.” Pants have long been ― and often still are ― more associated with men, and subsequently, power. But for centuries, women have been breaking convention by wearing pants at times when they weren’t considered acceptable women’s attire. They were shamed, ridiculed and even arrested for wearing them. Both the United States and France had laws in place that made it illegal for women (and men) to go out in public wearing clothes that didn’t “belong to his or her sex.” Today, nea...

5 Skin Care Products Dermatologist Anna Guanche Can’t Live Without

If there’s one group of people we tend to trust the most when it comes to skin care, it’s dermatologists. Not only do they examine and treat skin conditions for a living, they almost always seem to have perfect-looking skin. We know dermatologists are skin professionals who have access to way more products than the average human ever will, but still, we can’t help but wonder exactly what they use to help keep their skin clear, smooth and glowing. On our quest to finding the best derm-approved products, we spoke to board-certified dermatologist and celebrity beauty expert Dr. Anna Guanche. Based in Calabasas, California ― aka Kardashian land ― she counts celebrities like Olivia Culpo, Brandi Glanville and Rebecca Romijn as clients. We asked her to share the five skin care products she absol...

Wondering Where To Get Botox Or Fillers? Beware Of These Red Flags.

Botox and filler injections are among the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the country. Fillers can be used to add volume to the lips and other areas on the face, while Botox is generally used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. But in the hands of the wrong people, injections ― especially of Botox ― can be extremely dangerous. Even lethal. These days, there seem to be too many unqualified people sticking needles in other people’s faces. For example, in 2017, health regulators in British Columbia, Canada, sought an injunction against a woman they said was unlawfully providing injections out of her basement. Then there’s the issue of Botox parties, which involve someone coming to your home to administer Botox injections while you sip cocktails. These gatherings have gained popu...

Karl Lagerfeld’s Final Chanel Show: See All The Photos

The designer’s last collection for the French fashion house was presented in Paris on Tuesday, less than a month after his death. Some of Lagerfeld’s most famous muses, including Cara Delevingne and Penelope Cruz, walked down the runway at the Grand Palais, which was transformed into a wintery ski village. The show notes for the collection featured a touching illustration of Lagerfeld walking with Chanel founder Coco Chanel with the words “The beat goes on” written above them. The clothes in the fall 2019 collection felt at once both quintessentially Chanel and Lagerfeld. There were oversized coats in classic check and houndstooth fabrics, plenty of classic-yet-modern suits, and a number of signature double-C accessories. The palette was largely black and white ― a Lagerfeld go-to ― but fe...

Teenage Girls In This Photo Series Show The Scary Effects Of Editing Apps

Photo editing has become an open secret in the land of social media. Apps like Instagram and FaceTune have made it so easy for us to change the way we look ― through filters, retouching or a combination of both ― that it’s becoming harder to determine what’s real and what’s not. We’d also argue that these apps are enabling us to perpetuate a homogenized expression of beauty, as opposed to celebrating true individuality. British photographer Rankin (born John Rankin Waddell) explored these apps and their potentially harmful affects in a recent photo series aptly titled, “Selfie Harm.” For the project, which was done as part of Visual Diet, a new online initiative that aims to change the way we consume images, Rankin photographed a group of teenagers and then asked them to edit their own por...

Tommy Hilfiger And Zendaya Cast All Black Models For Runway Show

Tommy Hilfiger and Zendaya sure know how to make a fashion statement. The iconic American designer and former Disney star presented their first TommyNow collection on Saturday during Paris Fashion Week. People online couldn’t stop talking about the show, and for a few good reasons. For starters, it was cast entirely with black models ― 59, to be exact ― with different body types and ranging in age from 18 to 70, according to Elle. Second, living fashion legends like Pat Cleveland, Beverly Johnson, Veronica Webb and Grace Jones strutted their stuff on the runway to add flair to the show. And third, the collection, which featured some very ’70s- and ’80s-inspired looks in an array of bold colors (including plenty of gold), was both fun and extremely wearable.

The Best Street Style Moments From Fashion Month

Runways are great for scouting fashion trends, but sometimes the best inspiration comes from the street style outside the shows. With fashion month coming to a close once again, now’s the perfect time to check out some of the best street style moments we saw in New York, London, Milan and Paris. One of the biggest trends we saw the style set rocking this season, which kicked off on Feb. 4 in New York and ends on March 5 in Paris, was statement outerwear. The majority of this past fashion month did take place in February, after all, and the four major cities aren’t exactly scorching hot in winter. We saw teddy coats, trench coats and puffer coats in all sorts of colors, prints and fabrics that almost made us sad winter is on its way out. Almost. Red seemed to be a go-to color of choice for ...

A Lesson On How To Suit Up, Courtesy Of The Jolie-Pitt Family

The Jolie-Pitt children made headlines this week, after all six of them stepped out with their mother, Angelina Jolie, for a screening of Netflix’s “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.” The public couldn’t help but notice how grown up the kids ― Maddox, 17; Pax, 15; Zahara, 14; Shiloh, 12; and Knox and Vivienne, 10, all of whom Jolie shares with former husband Brad Pitt ― looked at the event. But beyond their maturity, what we noticed was their killer, of-the-moment style. Tailored suits and separates have been all over red carpets lately, and the whole family was perfectly tapped into the trend. While most of the kids opted for tailored separates, Pax and Shiloh wore full suits. All of them dressed in shades of black, navy and gray.

Liquid Nose Jobs: Everything To Know About Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty

Nose reshaping was the third most popular surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States in 2017, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. People seek nose jobs for various reasons both aesthetic and functional, from getting rid of the bump on their nose or straightening it to looking to correct breathing problems. In 2017, over 215,000 nose reshaping procedures were performed. That number was a 2 percent decrease from 2016. One potential factor contributing to that decrease could be a trendy nose procedure that doesn’t require surgery at all. Enter the nonsurgical rhinoplasty, also known as the “liquid nose job” or nonsurgical nose job. The procedure has been generating buzz online in recent years, so to learn more about it, we asked three plastic surgeons to share their e...

Elizabeth Taylor’s Stunning Vintage Styles Over The Years

The actress ― known for her star turns in an array of films, including “A Place in the Sun,” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” “Cleopatra” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” Tin Roof” ― made her screen debut at age 10 in 1942′s “There’s One Born Every Minute.” By the time she was 12 and acclaimed for her role in “National Velvet,” she was a bona fide star who would go on to win two Academy Awards. Taylor, who also became known for her many relationships ― especially her two marriages to Richard Burton ― and her iconic violet eyes, was the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour. She had a classic style ― think Dior’s New Look, which became the big trend for women in the 1940s and ’50s ― and a penchant for wearing expensive jewels. Today, in honor of what would have been the screen icon’s 87th birthday ...
