A Mohabbat Nama by HSY

“Mohabbat Nama (love letter) is my tribute to my city,” Hassan Sheheryar Yasin, better known as Sheru, said about his celebratory solo show marking 24 years in the fashion industry. A tribute to the city of Lahore it was, as one can trust the dynamic designer to put together an experience worth remembering. Guests were driven up to the gate of Mubarak Haveli in the inner city and were shifted to a buggy that served as a royal carriage to the venue. The night was set in the 250-year-old Syed…

On Chronic Illness and Clothes

Heels click neatly on the slick pavement; fog settles faintly down on a warm February night. It’s hard to keep up with Elsie A. Tellier ’19 as she marches down the mostly empty streets, talking—and walking—a mile a minute.

“A lot of people in my freshman year knew me as that one girl who made this really long post in the Facebook page explaining the history of women’s sizing and why women’s sizing is messed up.” She pauses. “It’s a long story.”

Today, Tellier is wearing…

Beauty by Science

Saying that all facials are the same is a bit like saying all wines are the same. Yes, on a fundamental level, they all treat you (and your mind) to some pampering and relaxing, with the added bonus that your face looks great afterwards. But just like there’s a world of difference between a box of Franzia and a bottle of Dom, there are facials and then there are facials. I had one of the latter just before the holidays at Breathing Space Spa on the East Side.

When spa owner Abby…

Function over Fashion

One of the very best things about winter is winter clothes. Winter allows one to liberate one’s inner fashion outlaw. Cold weather eliminates or overrules the dictates of style all in the name of keeping warm. As the temperature drops and we seek to keep the energy bill down, you can get away with fashion faux pas like wearing your husband’s hooded sweatshirt that’s super soft inside. Fabulously comfortable items including full zip sweats and cardigans emerge from their summer hibernation in…

Penelope Cruz on her favourite characters

It’s day nine of the 74th Venice Film Festival and the scene at the legendary Hotel Cipriani on the tiny island of Giudecca, overlooking St Mark’s Square, couldn’t be more cinematic. Penélope Cruz is sipping tea from a dainty china cup in the hotel’s Oro Restaurant, with not another diner in sight. Her hair is a little tousled and her chestnut eyes shine brightly as sunlight pours into the elegant waterfront room. In the distance, a little fishing boat bobs gently on the shimmering waters of…

Why Angelina Jolie should be your new grown-up style muse

The usual style modus operandi of a Hollywood grande dame usually involves plenty of experimentation, eye-catching colours and striking silhouettes. After all, fashion has become a high stakes game in the film world over the past decade with sponsorship deals swirling and an actress’s ability to win best dressed awards becoming almost as much a consideration as her CV.

Now that Angelina Jolie is more often found taking a behind-the-camera role as producer/ director, she is staking out…
