Real women try out J.Lo’s racy naked cape

When donning an eye-popping statement piece like Valentino’s sequin-bedecked, emerald-green haute couture cape, some might be tempted to balance it out with understated items — a plain blouse, say, or sensible slacks. Jennifer Lopez had a different idea. In InStyle’s December issue, the 49-year-old tossed the billowing cape over a pair of six-inch gilded Christian...

Justine Marjan and Kitsch Prove That Hair Pins Aren’t Just For Kids Anymore

This week, Justine Marjan dropped a line of rhinestone-encrusted hair accessories with Kitsch, and they have taken social media by storm. The crystals are arranged in the form of four words - "Feelings," "Damn," "Glam," and our personal favorite, "Drippin" - or as straight pins. They've been seen in the hair of celebrities and models, elevating top knots and styles, from classic to glam. Justine Marjan has taken to Instagram to show us how to wear her pieces. On her page, you'll see "Drippin" an...

6 Unexpected Ways To Give Your Thanksgiving Traditions A Refresh

While there's plenty to love about Thanksgiving (No obligation to check email! Dinner at 3:30! Lots of encouraged napping!), the holiday can start to feel a little repetitive year after year: We wake up early to watch the parade, inevitably fight about politics with our extended relatives, then cap off the night counting down the hours until we blow our entire monthly budget on Black Friday sales. Fret not, though, because it's never too late to hit the refresh button on your Turkey Day celebra...

The Music Concierge is a column where I share music I'm listening to that you might enjoy, with a little context. Get everything I've recommended this year on Spotify, follow me on Twitter or Facebook, and leave a comment below telling me what you're listening to this week. Normani &...

The Results Are In: These Are the Best Beauty Collaborations of 2018

Target's New Curated Beauty Boxes Are Practically Made For Gifting Season

Any kind of subscription service sounds great — free music, streaming TV, weekly meals delivered to your door — until you start considering that pesky monthly fee. $9.99 a month isn't so bad for Spotify Premium, you think. Then you tally up how much that will ding you over the course of a year, and realize a curated ad-free workout playlist might not be worth $120 in the long run after all.Luckily, Target understands both our need for convenience and general aversion to accumulating credit-card...

I Let My Long Hair Define Me For 23 Years, So I Cut It Off to Take Back Control

"I am my hair," Lady Gaga belted on the sixth track of her 2011 Born This Way album. Aptly titled "Hair," the lyrics champion owning your identity - profoundly, unapologetically - by way of how you choose to wear yours. It's a song I've always felt connected to and a sentiment I understood well. To myself and others, my hair was a huge piece of my identity. Thick, naturally straight, and rarely less than two feet long, it cascaded over my shoulders and down my back, often in loose, bouncy curls...

Mariah Carey Is The Master Of Her Own Domain On Caution

In the face of a culture that remains ambivalent about what middle-aged (or older) women have to say, Mariah Carey refuses to be silenced — or forced to “act her age.”In the year of our Lord, 2018, Mariah Carey finally decided – after an especially dramatic several years in her personal life – to drop a few f-bombs. Sure, the superstar has dropped a few swears on live TV and is a known curser in her day-to-day life, but she hasn’t really done it in a song before. With Caution, the diva’s 14th s...

Consider The Crop Top: A Surprisingly Versatile Wardrobe Addition

‘Tis the season for wardrobe confusion. While the temperatures have definitely dropped from what they were in October, we’re still in the awkward in-between season where you can be bundled up in a parka walking outside and then feel uncomfortably warm as soon as you step inside of a building. This fluctuation calls for some transitional pieces to take center stage in your closet and one of the tried-and-true classics you can wear over the next few weeks is the long sleeve crop top.Crop tops and...

A Comprehensive Guide To Growing Out Your Pubic Hair

Public opinion on pubic hair has come a long way since the Renaissance. Back then, south-of-the-border fuzz was thought to be so uncivilized, women used depilatories formulated with arsenic to remove it. (The directions, according to a 1532 recipe: "Wash quickly with hot water so the flesh doesn't come off.") Those times, in the best interest of everyone's skin, are luckily behind us.Today, the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction. Plenty of celebrities, from Emma Watson to Amber Rose t...

These Were the 10 Most Dramatic Hair Transformations of 2018

If 2018 felt like a whirlwind of a year to you, you're not the only one. It went by so quickly - and was so jam-packed - that a number of beauty moments ended up lost in the shuffle. For that reason, we thought it'd be fun to comb through the last several months to highlight the most dramatic hair transformations. Naturally, we asked hairstylists, who study such moments as a part of their jobs, to chime in about who was worthy of making the list. From the red carpet to the runway to social media...

From Heaven to Earth - Lush's “God Is a Woman" Bath Bomb Has Arrived

Lush's Goddess Bath Bomb ($9), the brand's spin on the heavenly pools Ariana Grande bathed in during her "God Is a Woman" video, has finally touched down on earth. This bath bomb, which Ariana Grande fans have been waiting for since July, explodes into celestial swirls of lilac, silver, and pink that smell of oudh and sandalwood. (It's funny because that's exactly what we thought the pool in Grande's video would smell like: tranquility.) The orb also contains cocoa butter, shea butter, and arga...
