'Grace Kelly seemed like an angel': Clive James and others on their first crushes

With Valentine’s Day in view, the veteran author and more come clean about their crazy, stupid, teenage lovesGrace Kelly’s career began as a 10-year cluster of roles for US television, but we didn’t see those in Australia, so her first movies made a terrific impact. She arose out of nowhere. I was still wearing short trousers, but I fell romantically in love with her when she arrived at James Stewart’s apartment in Rear Window and crossed the room fluttering. Hitchcock did something to the camer...

Let's Talk About Sex, Baby: Every Trick You Need To Seduce Someone With A Playlist

A woman goes home with a man. She looks around his bachelor pad, taking in his wall art: Klimt, Lichtenstein, and an Arcade Fire concert poster — clearly, he contains multitudes. While she's making the rounds of his black-leathered pad, he slips over to his record player (no matter what year it is, he has a record player, because he is “smooth”) and drops that needle. The dulcet sounds of Lana Del Rey’s “Cherry” start to pipe through the apartment. Or maybe it's Chet Baker’s “I Fall In Love Too...

I Traded My Box Braids For A Frank Ocean-Inspired Buzz Cut

There are two types of people when it comes to haircuts: There are those who squint at the sight of shears for a two-inch trim, and those who walk in the salon with box braids and walk out with a buzz cut. Monica Ananonu, a freelance illustrator, falls into the latter category.In the latest episode of Hair Me Out, Ananonu crops her hair down to a fade and dyes it platinum blonde for a look inspired by Frank Ocean’s Blonde album art. “I guess I’m nervous because my hair grows really slowly, so...

Frank Ocean Shared His Skincare Secrets, and Honestly, Everyone Should Take Note

A note to men everywhere: Frank Ocean would really like for you to stop sleeping in your day face. In a cover story for GQ's February issue, the singer shared his nighttime skincare routine and talked about why he thinks more men should wash their faces before bed. "I feel like men just go to sleep. They may wash their face or they don't even bother - they go to sleep with the day face on," he said. "You really need to do a gentle wash and put a night moisturizer on." Retinol, Frank explained, ...

Twitter Has A Lot To Say About Frank Ocean's Skin-Care Routine

Hollywood's Bleach-Blonde Bro Club Just Gained Another Member

Just when you thought getting an appointment with your colorist was complicated enough (with everyone going blonde nowadays), there's a new client base starting to book time under the bleach bowl. We're talking about dudes. Yep, the streets of L.A. are starting to resemble Eminem's performance of The Real Slim Shady at the 2000 MTV VMAs.

These Self-Help Books Will Fix Your Life

As great as self-help books can be, they sometimes have a reputation for being cheesy, overly earnest, or unrealistically optimistic.While they may not contain the "key to happiness " or fulfill any particularly lofty promises, they can, at the very least, help to normalize what you're feeling or experiencing, says Marcia Norman, PsyD, a clinical psychologist in Winter Park, FL. In the same way that you might listen to a sad song or watch a tearjerker movie when you're feeling down, reading a s...

The Long-Wear Makeup Our Editors Will Be Wearing All Summer

There are plenty of ways to keep your makeup on all day — some of which you've probably tried (like a dusting of setting powder) and some that are a bit more unusual (powdering your face like a donut and plunging head first into a bucket of ice water). But no matter how you choose to set your face, none of these things do much if you don't start with products designed to cling to your complexion in the first place.As temperatures skyrocket and humidity spikes, we find ourselves reaching for pro...

No One Does Model Style Like Lily Aldridge

Lily Aldridge has a modeling résumé that's more than just impressive—it's legendary. Think her stint as a Victoria's Secret Angel and her major campaigns for Ferragamo and Bulgari, to name just two. But above all things, it's her street style we admire most. Lily is the ultimate cool girl, easily styling eye-catching pieces in a way that feels both fashion-forward and laid-back at the same time. Whether she's headed to an ultra-fancy red carpet, or she's just strolling through the airport, Lily'...

This Is Where L.A.'s Coolest Blondes Go To Get Their Color

Los Angeles is infamous for its niche beauty "treatments" (Goop-recommended crystal vagina steaming, anyone?), so if there’s anywhere in the world that would have a hair salon just for blondes, it’s here. Located in an up-and-coming stretch of the city known for its Ethiopian restaurants and thrift stores, the first clue that BLONDE / BLOND might not be your average hair salon is the neon flashing sign in the window reading "Home for Wayward Blondes." Once inside, the whiff of bleach, a massive...

The Sexiest Songs Of All Time

Everyone has that song that makes their blood rush, their face flush, and their pulse quicken. It's the jam you always have queued up when there's even the slightest chance of an overnight guest. It's baby-making, hypnotic hip-swiveling, take-me-now music.And, there's a lot of it. Sometimes it's the lyrics that get us fired up. Sometimes it's the beat. Sometimes it's just Janet Jackson's voice or the fact that it makes you think of Ryan Gosling. By the second chorus, you're a quivering mess.Fro...

Charting The T-Shirt's History Of Protest

Maria Grazia Chiuri's September 2016 Dior collection didn't just signal her debut at the storied French fashion house — it launched the now-ubiquitous T-shirt heard 'round the world. Printed with the phrase 'We should all be feminists,' a quote taken from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Beyoncé-sampled TED talk, the sentiment hit a nerve with those both in and outside the fashion industry. And though the garment itself was a bit divisive — 1) coming from an elitist world that propels questionable re...

Black People Have Been Beefing With The Grammys For Decades — Here's Why

The Grammys are only a few days away, and truthfully, I’m less than excited about them. A new study has confirmed that it only reflects how woefully male-dominated the music industry is, I hate having to sit through all the genres I don’t listen to, and Beyoncé still hasn’t won Album of the Year. The Recording Academy has actually become a foe of mine as I’ve struggled with its rich history of snubbing and pigeonholing marginalized groups. And I’m not the only one. The history of Black peopl...

Why The 2018 Grammy Nominations Look So Different

For the first time in the Recording Academy's history, a white man isn't nominated for Album of the Year, and we very likely have Beck's surprise win over Beyoncé in 2015 to thank for that. While the changes that upset initiated didn't kick in quickly enough to stop Adele from besting Bey in the same category last year, the 2018 nominee class, especially in the Academy's four flagship categories (Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist) seem to be largely be...

These 8 Skin-Care Brands Are Tackling The Issues Women Of Color Face

Skin care, like underwear, is not one size fits all. And no one knows that better than women of color, who often have specialized skin issues that go unaddressed by popular skin-care brands. Melanin-rich skin is disproportionately disposed to excess oil, hyperpigmentation, acne and eczema, so thorough research and careful label-reading is key to finding a regimen that works.I realized during my tween years, perusing the endless options on the drugstore shelves, that most products would do more ...
