August 8, 2013 6:18pm Fashion’s wonder boy J.W. Anderson debuted his first advertising campaign, snapped by photog Jamie Hawkesworth. The clothes are certainly worth talking about, but we’re currently crushing on model Lucan Gillespie’s extra-high and wavy pony. (And is that a black scrunchie we spy?) Blond bombshell Kate Upton revealed to...

The 411: Susien Chong Of Lover

Lover, the Aussie brand started by couple Susien Chong and Nic Briand, has, since launching as a stall in Bondi Market in 2001, cultivated an ardent following among fashion types thanks in great part to the line’s consistent and clear identity.

Red Flower, Now Boarding on US Airways

June 28, 2013 12:00pm As anyone who has ever taken a transcontinental trip knows, the in-flight amenity bag is of the utmost importance.

Lancôme’s Got Double Vision

June 27, 2013 4:50pm Makeup with skincare benefits is a common phenomenon these days. Consider the BB—and now CC—cream craze, which is proof positive that sun-protecting, tone-enhancing, damage-correcting, age-delaying foundations and tinted moisturizers are way more desirable than plain color products alone.

Le Labo’s Flower Power

June 24, 2013 5:28pm Since it opened its doors in Nolita seven years ago, Le Labo has been something of a paradox in the perfumery industry. In an often mass-marketed business, where new launches are almost mandatory in every quarter, the New York–based atelier only deals in freshly made eaux that are hand-poured at...

Dramatically Different—And Newly Revamped

June 21, 2013 9:50am Everyone has a Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion memory.

Hand-Holding With Intelligent Nutrients

June 19, 2013 4:55pm The term “zombie hands” has been trending on social-media networks and in gossip rags a lot lately, referring to the unfortunate physical toll that the aging process can take on a woman’s hands. It’s mean-spirited, but so it goes with any catchy meme. We typically try not to participate in...
