Deepika Padukone Is Fully Owning the Red Carpet at Cannes

For some, dressing for the Cannes is about hitting every item on a checklist. Big dress? Check. Bigger jewels? Check. While that’s one way to get attention, seasoned attendees elevate the fashion quotient by mixing things up. Currently on her fourth trip to the festival, Deepika Padukone has mastered looking flawless on and off its red carpets. With multiple outfit changes in the last 24 hours, the actress was prepared for every situation while making it clear that she and stylist Shaleena…

Why Is Gigi Hadid Black and White and Read All Over?

Gigi Hadid is an avid reader, she’ll have you know. Just a few weeks ago, she was spotted carrying The Stranger by Albert Camus; now, she is adding words to her wardrobe in the more traditional way. Yesterday, Hadid stepped out in a Jean Paul Gaultier T-shirt with a tabloid-newspaper print. Hadid paired the iconic shirt with classic button-fly Levi 501s, a beige sweater tied around her shoulders, red Adam Selman Le Specs sunglasses, and a double-stranded pearl choker. She grounded the casual…

Paris Hilton Just Re-Purposed Her Famous 21st Birthday Party Dress

In typical millennium socialite fashion, when Paris Hilton turned 21 in 2002, she threw five different parties around the world over the course of the five nights, hitting London, New York, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. You probably only remember one outfit from the week-long festivities, though: that slinky, silver chainmail dress that she wore with a thick matching choker, an instant classic that’s just about come to define early aughts party dressing.…

Beyoncé and Jay-Z Turned the Global Citizen Festival Into a Stunning Fashion Celebration of Mandela’s Legacy

When Beyoncé headlines a festival, you know things will be next level. After stints at Glastonbury, Made in America, and that unforgettable “Beychella” moment back in April, the queen of pop is used to raising the fashion bar for performances. Case in point: Yesterday at the Global Citizen Festival, she and her husband Jay-Z brought their act to Johannesburg with fanfare and a slew of custom designer looks chosen by Beyoncé’s team of Zerina Ackers and Jenke Ahmed Tailly, plus Jay-Z’s…

Seriously Spooky: Dilara Findikoglu’s Haunting Halloween House Casts a Sinister Spell

As Dilara Findikoglu explained it, hers was a Spring 2019 collection rooted in conflicts: “between good and evil, sinful and innocent, natural and synthetic, provocation and modesty, Istanbul and London, past and present . . .” These binaries were visible at her seriously spooky presentation this afternoon, for sure—yet, the most urgent conflict of all was whether to cringe in a corner or bolt for the door.…

Junglepussy’s Latest Style Icon Is Her 16-Year-Old Self

“Not just because of Throwback Thursdays, but I’m always looking at pictures of me in high school,” says Junglepussy, aka Shayna McHale, the Brooklyn-born rapper who recently released her third album, JP3. After years of living in New York, and out of a desire to remain somewhat neutral when it came to her wardrobe—“I didn’t want anybody to see me,” she says—McHale naturally gravitated towards a more stripped-down color palette. “I was like, Alright, black hair, black, black, black,” she…

Jennifer Connelly Nails Flawless, Yet Easy Airport Style

Jennifer Connelly made a statement at the Solo: A Star Wars Story screening in Cannes yesterday, wearing Louis Vuitton’s monastic minidress, then jetted out in slick style just after. Connelly had already made waves with her arrival look—a modern riff on the biker jacket and jeans, courtesy of a denim mini—but today’s takeoff ensemble was equally polished in its simplicity and slick tailoring.…

Meet Liana Bank$, the R&B Singer With Neon-Green Mermaid Hair

Queens-bred singer and songwriter Liana Bank$ has a knack for making things appear effortless. There’s her sound, a lush wave of hypnotic beats; some call it trap, others call it R&B, she’s described it as an “ice cream sundae . . . a bunch of yummy, savory, flavorful stuff.” There’s her voice, which is raspy and low, spitting out the kind of wordplay you’d expect from an expert lyricist who has worked with the likes of Lily Allen and PnB Rock and is still 26 years young. “Now your pants…

Should Heron Preston Have Put Putin’s Face on a $594 T-Shirt?

Whether they like it or not, streetwear designers have a responsibility. Their main customer base is made up of teenagers and 20-somethings who wait hours in line to cop these labels’ new releases. They’ll covet and save to purchase nearly anything stamped with a familiar logo, even if it’s a plastic MetroCard. As Virgil Abloh said while speaking alongside Heron Preston at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference last year, “The unique position in which Heron and I sit is that we are creating…

Last Dance? Not With These 5 Donna Summer–Inspired New Year’s Eve Looks

Donna Summer was disco incarnate. She sang it, wrote it, lived it, and wore it. Summer would have been 69 today, and her songs and style are as fabulous and relevant as they were back in the days of Studio 54. So much so, in fact, that an announcement was made earlier this month that a Donna Summer musical about her life and career is coming to Broadway this spring. And just think of the costumes—her wardrobe was all glitter, gold, and, truly, “hot stuff.” Her hits like “Last Dance,” “I Feel…

Lagerfeld Turned This German R&B Star Into the Newest Chanel Muse

Last night was big for Ace Tee. The stylish German R&B singer, born Tarin Wilda, had her first major fashion moment when she was invited by Chanel to attend the Métiers d’Art show at the new Elbphilharmonie in her hometown of Hamburg. Wilda is an up-and-comer in the music business, one with a keen, ’90s-inspired fashion sense. Hundreds of thousands watched her video for “Bist du Down?” on Twitter back in January. Among them may have been the fellow Hamburg native Karl Lagerfeld. The…

A Moment with Manolo As a New Documentary About Him Debuts

As the Spring 2018 runways in New York and London rage on with post-ironic clothing that’s incomplete without a slogan, a photo print, or a bit of sheer provocation, a documentary about Manolo Blahnik is debuting in theaters around the world. The timing is, well, quite ironic, since Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards, directed by his close friend Michael Roberts, reveals the shoe man to be the antithesis of tongue-in-cheek. An anomaly in our perma-jaded world, the Canary Island–born,…

The Next Phase of Inclusive Fashion: Designing for the Disabled

It’s an understatement to say that those of us with free range of movement in our arms and legs don’t realize how easy it is to shop for clothes. We complain about being in-between sizes, feeling disappointed by our favorite designers, or getting overwhelmed by massive high-street chains—so many options, so little time . . . the struggle! Of course, if a disability confines you to a wheelchair, your options are reduced to a mere fraction of all of that. When you’re sitting all day and, in…

This Stealth Wardrobe Multitasker Is the Most Versatile Shirt of the Summer

In the summertime, air conditioning can be both a blessing and a curse. You’re roaming around outside in the sweltering heat (or a hot, soupy mess, if you’re in New York City), sweating, panting, aching to stick your head in a freezer. Then you go indoors. For a moment you feel relief, but then the arctic-level chills hit, and suddenly it’s winter again. This indoor-outdoor temperature fluctuation can make getting dressed in the morning a real conundrum. Do you wear the least amount of…

It’s Rooftop Season! 4 Foolproof Looks to Take You From the Office to the Bar

It’s finally rooftop season—also known as summer, for all non–New Yorkers. From the Insta-worthy views at the Standard Hotel’s Le Bain to the vodka-infused popsicles at the Conrad’s Loopy Doopy, there’s no better way to end the workday than with a refreshing drink in hand and the city skyline as the backdrop. The only obstacle? A dress code at the door.

Cheap Thrills: The 21 Best Sale Sweaters and Jackets to Stock Up On Now

Winter or spring, rain or shine, there’s nothing like scoring a big-ticket item on sale—especially when it actually matches the climate outside. This spring, the delayed arrival of warm weather across much of the country has extended the opportunity to wear transitional, multi-season layering pieces at the very moment they’re being marked down. (Consider it a consolation prize for the cooler temperatures.)…

Bella Hadid is Bringing Back the Chain-Link Belt

There’s nothing quite like a transformative accessory, particularly if it might already be hanging in one’s closet. Take, for instance, the metal chain belt, a so-bad-it’s-good add-on from the noughties that may be making be making a comeback—that is, if Bella Hadid has anything to do with it. The model, who has a history of moving the denim tuxedo to sexy new heights as seen earlier this month, stepped out in a like-minded look today, though the most eye-catching detail of all was the one…
