NATURAL MATTERS

Daniel Jackson shot supermodel Christy Turlington and Calvin Klein creative directors Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli and Kevin Carrigan for WSJ. Magazine. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.

Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain…

As you may be aware from the proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

Fall decorating presents the opportunity to revel in luxury. Fabrics become more substantial, color palettes transition to rich hues, and just about every design decision for the season revolves around cultivating a cozy living environment. In an effort to help you make your space ideal for fall, a group of design tastemakers reveal the decor trends to expect in homes across the country this season, along with a few lessons you’ll want to consider.

 

 

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation in which a high fashion-meets-down home country boy aesthetic really is necessary.

How do you add intrigue to a minimal outfit? By clashing textures and skillfully blending high and low pieces. Jil Sander’s PVC trench is a trophy piece of the highest order; make it sing by pairing it with blue denim and a subtle slogan tee in clean white. Want to dial up the drama even more? Apply a liberal helping of spring’s most covetable accessories: a structural leather bag (Wandler’s Hortensia style is an instant classic); of-the-moment statement earrings courtesy of Alessandra Rich; and The Row’s envy-inducing stiletto boots.


Like exercise trends of earlier decades, it can feel like one more requirement         of womanhood

We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.

 

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

People were absolutely astounded, at least in between that time that they read the Tweet or headline and when they actually go to the details, that Prada was selling a $150 “paper clip.” In reality, of course, it was a sterling silver money clip shaped like a paper clip (and when you really think about it, all clips really do the same thing). $150 is a lot for a paper clip, but it’s actually not that eye boggling when you look at other high-end money clips.

Gradually, in the late 1950s, women began to embrace more active forms of exercise, as well as the concept of carving out designated blocks of time to move—thanks to the first TV fitness gurus. The two most influential were Jack LaLanne, who encouraged women to put down their irons and follow alongwith his low-impact stretches and exercises, and a host named.

Debbie Drake, who wore a collared leotard, looked like a human Barbie doll and advised that following her regimen was the key to keeping one’s husband happy. “Debbie Drake had a very big impact because, for women [of the era], she was the most clear image we had of what a woman who exercised looked like,” says Jan Todd,

The acting, it appears, comes easily. Co-stars heap unusually genuine praise on Woodley, with the likes of George Clooney – whom she starred with in The Descendants, her sit-up-and-take-notice role – and Kate Winslet (the Divergent franchise) singling her out as one of the best actresses of her generation. Everything that comes with it though? That’s been a struggle.

“The idea of magazines, press lines, red carpets and fashion, all of that was so overwhelming that I stayed away from it all,” says the actress over herbal tea at a relaxed LA cafe, clad in a leather jacket and jeans. “I can’t half-ass anything, so when it came to me having to look a certain way or speak a certain way for this image I was meant to create, it turned me off. When I wasn’t filming I would work on a farm somewhere because that’s what I could hold onto that felt real.”

“The idea of fashion is EXCITING again because I can now CURATE a look that’s authentically MYSELF. I suppose it comes down to control”

 

For a long time, none of that was Woodley’s thing. “I was only interested in making sure my physical footprint was aligned with my mental opinions and viewpoints,” she says. “Now I’m in a different place. The idea of fashion is exciting because I can now curate a look that’s authentically myself. I suppose it really just comes down to control.”

Right now, the actress is filming a second series of Big Little Lies. While she’s equally as proud of the TV phenomenon as her co-stars – Laura Dern and Zoë Kravitz, as well as executive producers Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman – the show represents something even more crucial for Woodley; until the script came along, she was considering quitting acting after all. “There was a point in my life, right before Big Little Lies, where I had hit a wall with acting. I felt it was time to do something different. I called my agents and said, ‘Please don’t send me any more scripts; I need to explore other avenues.’ They respected me and didn’t send me anything for almost a year until Big Little Lies. I didn’t know what it was or who was involved, I just said, ‘Thanks, I’m still not interested.’” The agents persisted, revealing the impressive names attached. “I read it, fell in love with it, and Laura , who I had worked with on The Fault in Our Stars, called me and that was really the push.”

For hanging out with friends

“I live in New York but I travel constantly. I have a house in Mallorca, and I often go back to Poland because I do a lot of campaigning projects there. When I’m in Paris, I stay with designer Anthony Vaccarello, and he comes and stays with me in my place in Mallorca. We’re not party animals; we like to do our own thing. We like the director Gaspar Noé – we watched Enter the Void together recently – and we love Kubrick.”

For a stylish bite

“Sa Foradada in Deià, Mallorca (+34 616 08 74 99), is the most incredible place for lunch. It’s a beautiful little restaurant carved into the mountain with the most incredible sea view. You can only get there by boat or by hiking – it’s very local and serves the best veggie paella.”

There are so many trend pieces, online articles, news snippets, and magazine blurbs about what the next ‘it’ things are or what things you ‘should never be seen in again.’ All that is propaganda. True personal style is that which looks great to the outside world but makes the wearer feel even greater inside. If you are confident in your style, it will project beauty no matter what you’re wearing.” —Stephen V Hernandez, a personal stylist based out of NYC (Check out these science-backed tips to boost your confidence.)

“People are looking at brows as an extension of their hair,” says the makeup artist Kate Lee, who has transformed the arches of clients like Rooney Mara and Keira Knightley. For those en route to finding their ideal hair and brow color combination, discovering the right match can be tricky. Lee suggests experimenting first with temporary brow colors, like Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel, and filling in lightly with a Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil for added depth. “It’s instant gratification,” she explains. “Take a selfie, look in the mirror, and make sure it suits you.”“Take a selfie, look in the mirror, and make sure it suits

DESTINATIONS FOR SOME INSPIRATION
As last year drew to a close, my sights are firmly set on where to travel to next. I really enjoy visiting my favourite hot-spots close to home in Europe, but 2018 is all about venturing far and beyond on the travel front. Air travel has never been so accessible, and with new routes opening up to far flung destinations across the globe, now’s the time to get in on the wanderlust. So I went in search of stylish destinations travel bloggers are most excited about to give you an insight into what your next holiday destination should be like Here are the countries, cities and regions you need to tick off on your wanderlust list and inspiration for the foreseeable future.   [pt_view id="d7278d48o7"]

So far, I have worked on Sponsored PR campaigns with Monarch Airlines, Nau Hotels & Resorts and Blanco Beach Algarve. I was chosen by Monarch Airlines to be one of their Travel Ambassadors. They hired me for content creation in the travel destination genre to highlight some amazing places around Southern Algarve Portugal. I generally write about style, culture, and smart luxury travel.

GO BEHIND THE SCENES AT FASHION WEEK

FIRST LOOK BACKSTAGE DURING THE CATWALK SHOWS

Sometimes all the fun packed action is found backstage during Fashion Week before all the models and designer looks hit the runway within a matter of seconds. It's a models chance to shine especially if he or she is the designers muse of the season. The pressure is usually mounting at this point and leaving the Designer often contemplating is it about the male or female model or is it about the signature piece. At that moment the model no longer fits into the garment so it's a wild card for a new face on the modeling scene to get exposure. A new star is born as the lucky model is chosen by the Designer and gets to close the show wearing the signature piece. Everything must be presented immaculately as you see backstage on screen at a ZAC POSEN show, just like the fictional drama about working Models in New York City 'The Beautiful Life' staring Mischa Barton. Well, it's the closest example I can compare my experience to through the eyes of a fashion insider and it's more a less an accurate account of what happens behind the scenes. Take a look at some of these amazing photo's taken by a talented friend of mine and a Fashion Week regular commissioned to shoot for various publications so I can capture the moment for you viewers at home.

[Rich_Web_Slider id="2"]     House of Holland Autumn Winter 2018 It’s definitely one of the most anticipated shows to watch during London Fashion Week and always full of energy buzzing with international press and loyal celebrity clientele. As per usual guest were entertained with hospitality with a drinks reception and delicious bites to eat pre-show as the fashionista crowd gathered for the show. The atmosphere inside the Topshop Show Space in the lead up to show time was filled with excitement as the VIP arrivals started to fill up the Front Rows amongst the fashion press, stylist and bloggers hot on the heels of social media to snap Instagram pics and update their content with live streaming of the catwalk show. Holland’s theme for this collection evoked street wear sub cultures influenced by the urban music scene and delicate uptown polished looks show contrast between hard and soft silhouettes. A combination of floral, camouflage prints and HOH signature tartan were motif throughout the whole collection while bold stripe details adorn tracksuit garment separates.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

As you may be aware from the proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber. The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling.

Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

 

 

For all the wonders of 21st-cuntury life – zippy internet, a taxi at the drop of an app, the ability to turn on the heating without being home – sometimes we wish for a simpler existence.

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation in which.

“Up until that point, people had been hearing exercise messages for the better part of the decade, but they weren’t sure what they were supposed to do,” says Shelly McKenzie, PhD, author of Getting Physical: The Rise of Fitness Culture in America. Cooper offered practical workout guidelines—setting the stage for what would eventually become a national fitness obsession.

The 1960s also saw the birth of the modern barre industry. The workout was invented by Lotte Berk, a retired German dancer who combined ballet moves, yoga and rehabilitative exercises to help herself recover from a back injury. She discovered that the workout helped her stay strong and supple, and in 1959, opened a small basement studio on Manchester Street in London, where she attracted a star-studded clientele.

 


Mixing urban attitude, boho elegance and rock ‘n’ roll spirit, she delivers a genuine French allure.

For all the wonders of 21st-cuntury life – zippy internet, a taxi at the drop of an app, the ability to turn on the heating without being home – sometimes we wish for a simpler existence. One where we trade in tower blocks for towering trees, power showers for lake swimming and evening takeaways for morning foraging. Right?

 

We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

People were absolutely astounded, at least in between that time that they read the Tweet or headline and when they actually go to the details, that Prada was selling a $150 “paper clip.” In reality, of course, it was a sterling silver money clip shaped like a paper clip (and when you really think about it, all clips really do the same thing). $150 is a lot for a paper clip, but it’s actually not that eye boggling when you look at other high-end money clips.

How To Pack For A Holiday

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

As you may be aware from the proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

Knows exactly where she wants to take Diana next. “The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s Wonder Woman.

She’s got to come to America. It’s time.” A THR profile of Jenkins hintsthat, while Wonder Woman took place during World War I, Wonder Woman 2 will be “contemporary-set,” though Jenkins told Uproxx “the plan” is to stay in the past.

“I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing,” she told the Toronto SunMTV points to two obvious settings: the 1940s/World War II, because William Moulton Marston created the character of Wonder Woman in 1941; or the ’70s, in honor of the Lynda Carter-starring TV series.

London has been ravenous for ramen for some time. So why does Kanada-Ya – with branches in Covent Garden, Piccadilly and Islington – stand out? Its mission is “authentic ramen”, and it differs from most fast-food joints in that its noodles are cooked to order, hand-pulled and available in firm, regular or soft. The cherry on the top of this exacting approach is the 18-hour bone broth that the noodles float in. And what’s even better is that these umami-swizzling bowls are all served at breakneck speed. Slurp quickly and leave feeling smug you’ve downed a pond’s worth of delicious low-cal food.


Like exercise trends of earlier decades, it can feel like one more requirement of womanhood

Once you’ve settled on a shade, New York City colorist Aura Friedman, whose clients include everyone from Carolyn Murphy to Caroline Polachek and Sky Ferreira, says the only rule for dyeing your eyebrows is to match warm tones with warm tones, cool with cool. That, and be prepared to return to the salon at least once every four weeks.
