Boys in crisis: the decay of masculinity and how to renew it

Feminism provided girls with a whole new language to express the myriad problems-that-have-no-name, but there have been no credible equivalents for boys. In fact, the definition of masculinity seems to be contracting, according to Peggy Orenstein. When asked what traits society values most in boys, only 2% of male respondents in PerryUndem researchers asked men what traits society values most in boys, 2% answered honesty and morality, and 8% said leadership skills—traits that are, of cours...

From Now On, I Only Want to Discuss Ansel Elgort's Eyeshadow From the Golden Globes

Ansel Elgort may have taken a few cues from Euphoria for his Golden Globes look on Sunday night. The Goldfinch actor showed up on the red carpet at the award show sporting a dark blue, velvet suit and a subtle amount of glittery, monochromatic eye shadow in the inner corners of his eyes, which totally reminded us of something Zendaya or Hunter Schafer's characters would've worn in the HBO hit. And he didn't stop at the mermaid tears, either - Elgort went ahead and rounded out his look with an al...

Yep, Joey King's Golden Globes Nail Art Is Just as Trippy as Her Dress

The best way to accessorize a wild red carpet dress? With equally wild nail art, of course! Joey King flawlessly proved this fact at the Golden Globes on Sunday, pairing her hypnotizing Iris van Herpen gown with a matching geometric manicure that kept us under her spell the entire evening. Celebrity manicurist Thuy Nguyen crafted King's nail look using affordable Essie products. She started by applying two coats of Gel Couture polish in the Gossamer Garments shade, a dreamy light pink.

Lucy Boynton's Disco Ball Eye Makeup Deserves Its Own Golden Globes Nomination

As far as Hollywood newcomers go, Lucy Boynton is leading the pack - especially when it comes to her red carpet beauty looks. She only attended her first award season last year as part of the cast of Bohemian Rhapsody (and to support co-star and boyfriend Rami Malek) and even then she blew away the other red carpet arrivals with her bob haircut and floating eyeliner. Now, she's back for round two at tonight's Golden Globes to dethrone her makeup look from last year with something shiny and stunn...

Jennifer Lopez's Nails Are the Best - and Easiest to Miss - Part of Her Golden Globes Look

Call me an empath (or liar), but I personally felt the swoosh of wind that trailed Jennifer Lopez's ginormous bow dress as she walked the Golden Globes red carpet. She turned her head, and I sensed a secondhand ponytail headache coming on from her (admittedly epic) braided ballerina bun. Girl went big this year. Respect. My favorite part of Lopez's entire look, however, was perhaps the easiest to miss: her slightly diffused french manicure, courtesy of her go-to handyman (see what I did there?)...

Bogue Douleur - Ouch!

The last time I saw Antonio Gardoni, it was in Florence in September. We were both visiting Pitti Fragranze, and he wanted me to h...

Jennifer Lopez's Golden Globes Bun Goes Where No Amount of Bobby Pins Has Gone Before

Every inch of Jennifer Lopez's Golden Globes look on Jan. 5 made a statement, from her head down to her toes. The 50-year-old Hustlers actress walked Sunday night's red carpet alongside fiancée Alex Rodriguez, and while her gown was certainly eye-catching, it was hard to pull your eyes away from the intricately braided bun on top of her head. Lopez is certainly no stranger to a well-placed high bun, but this hairstyle belongs in a league of its own. Her stylist credits Dyson and Color Wow hair ...

ColourPop Champagne Bubbles Liquid Highlighter Review & Swatches

Champagne Bubbles Colour Pop Champagne Bubbles Liquid Highlighter ($12.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a light-medium gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The finish was subtle with a touch of sheen more apparent in person–very my-skin-but-better–with slight, yellow-based warmth. The consistency was very fluid, more watery than gel-like, and spreadable but had sheered out quickly, so it worked as a standalon...

He had filmed Sex Education the previous summer, and by January, it was ready for the world to see.
