Glimpses of Life in Contemporary Cuba, a Country Now on the Brink of Profound Change

Photo: Courtesy of Martin

President Obama’s historic promise to reopen full diplomatic relations with Cuba will bring sweeping change to the small island country, which is located only 90 miles off the coast of Florida but has been off limits to most Americans since the 1959 revolution. Despite its proximity to the United States, Cuba is culturally very far away, and photographic representations of it often tend toward the sentimental, portraying it as a place that is stuck in the past. For glimpses of contemporary life in Cuba today—now on the brink of profound transformation—we turned to Instagram. Here is what we found.

New York Fashion Week Gets the Boot From Lincoln Center

2014-12-18-modelswalking1024x681.jpg

It’s official: New York Fashion Week is getting the boot from Lincoln Center.

Following much debate, the Supreme Court of the State of New York has ruled that IMG Fashion will not renew its sublicense agreement with Lincoln Center, which expires in February following the Fall/Winter 2015 shows. According to court documents unearthed today by local blog A Walk in the Park, the lease was in violation of a city charter prohibiting using the space for non-park purposes including the temporary use of space for show tents and production equipment.

But what does this mean for the future of New York Fashion Week? Basically, it will force fashion week organizers to scramble to find a new location for its September shows, as its permanent home in Hudson Yards’ Culture Shed is still several years away from completion. While a number of high-profile designers chose to move their runway shows and presentations away from Lincoln Center last season (Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors when to Spring Studios, Prabal Gurung to Skylight at Moynihan Station, Alexander Wang to Pier 94, to name just a few) 69 shows still chose to call the site home. So basically, it’s anyone’s guess as to where NYFW could be headed from here.

For the sake of our expense accounts, our vote goes for one central location (with plenty of sidewalk access — for the model street style, of course).

Only Opaques – Dannii In Bright Pink Pantyhose

Only Opaques - Dannii H

I don’t think anyone can miss the sexy, bright pink pantyhose that Dannii H is wearing in this Only Opaques photo gallery.

Dannii has an amazing body overall, but it’s her smooth, long legs that probably get the most attention.

More Than Manis: A Unisex Guide to Winter Nail Care

When it comes to nail care, ladies aren’t the only ones who need to keep good cuticle. Guys, you know you dig on a no-polish manicure, and who doesn’t like a foot rub? While the nail art and glitter polish trends may be reserved for the ladies and glam-driven dudes, these winter nail care tips from Manhattan celeb manicurist, Erica Marton, also keeps gents in step. Nail, hand, and foot care is a unisex practice, and especially important in the winter, when skin and muscles on our hands and feet can become easily dehydrated and achy. Marton sees her share of athletes in her Meatpacking District salon, The Face Place, where she has worked not only on the nails of Cameron Diaz, Rashida Jones, the late L’Wren Scott, but also Chris Bosh, Gary Shefield, and Q-Tip.

It’s snuggling season, and nothing says sexy like soft, well-cared for hands and feet under the sheets.

From the lowdown on calluses (they actually serve a body good, by protecting it from impact) to the best lotions, supplements, and tips on how to make your winter mani last, this guide has your winter nail care covered. Learn the secret to a foot massage induced nirvana. Want to know what polish is trending this winter? Need the scoop on the insider’s quick-dry secret? How about tips on a heavenly at-home pedi treatment? This guide, with Marton’s expert tips, has got you.

2014-12-17-EricaMartonHeadshot.PNG

For women, clean, polished, and well-shaped nails pull a look together. And if you’re in the buff, polish is the sexiest accessory besides you. I derive pleasure from looking down at the splash of color on my pedicured feet in the shower; what can I say? For men, clean cuticles speak volumes to women, and your soft, pampered feet not only make you feel good, but feel good to whomever you’re rubbing up against on these chilly nights. The only tips you won’t find in this guide are acrylics, as Marton goes au natural and advises women to avoid acrylic nails as they can cause infections. Here are her top nine tips for winter nail care:

1.) Make your polish last in cold weather by choosing a glitter polish (it’s party season after all). Marton says because of the consistency of glitter polish, it’s more durable. Another must, use the miracle product Qtica fast dry drops every couple days to prolong the length of your mani.

2014-12-17-glittermani.jpg

2.) Tell your manicurist to go easy when cutting your cuticle. Says Marton, “You need the cuticle to protect your nail beds. If you cut them aggressively the body has to work harder to repair the injured skin, and in the winter, we need to conserve energy, especially because winter is so hard on the hands.”

2014-12-17-cleancuticle.jpg

3.) Rub coconut oil all over hands before applying hand cream and your gloves. Even if you’re traveling a short distance, your hands are extremely dry in the cold and need extra moisture. Marton’s two-step process ensures silky hands. “The oil softens up the skin just enough for the lotion to actually absorb.” Any coconut oil you find in a place like Whole Foods is sufficient, and Marton’s lotion pick is Weleda’s Skin Food for its ultra-rich all-natural ingredients. She also likes Queen Helene Cucumber Massage Lotion.

4.) Supplements like Biotin are great for nails, but take 6-8 weeks for visible results. In the meanwhile, strengthen nails with Marton’s fave product, Quimica Alemana Nail Hardener. For feet, Kerasal is a game-changer, banishing cracked heels and leaving you with super luxe feet.

2014-12-17-RedpediEricaMarton.jpg

5.) Treat yourself to a poor gal or guy’s at-home pedi. In between spa appointments, or on particularly sluggish days of traipsing through slush, give yourself an at-home treatment to soothe and soften feet. Forget soaking your feet in bath salts; Epsom salts serve no medicinal purpose and end up drying out your skin. Instead, after your shower, dry your toes individually. Then take a warm washcloth (steep in a pot of boiling water) and massage feet, paying special attention to what Marton calls “problem areas” (heels, big toe, and pad of foot.) When done, apply scented Monoi Tiki oil (my favorite aroma is Tahitian Vanilla). Finally, bundle each foot in Saran wrap and a sock to lock in moisture. Keep on for as long as you’d like.

2014-12-17-athometreatment.jpg

6.) Relax your entire body starting with your feet. Marton recommends Yoga Toes, which not only stretch and elongate your toes, but also help relieve bunions, hammertoes, and other problems we get from working out, not stretching feet properly before exercise, walking in heels, or long days on your feet. Says Marton, at the end of the day, “Sit down, pour yourself a glass of wine, and put on those Yoga Toes for just 10 minutes to get that blood flowing!” The gel inserts fit between, above, and beneath your toes to spread them apart and gently away from the ball of your foot, helping to strengthen and realign the muscles in your toes. I’ve tried them, and like any new stretching routine, can be uncomfortable at first. But when they start working, you can feel relief throughout your entire body! This product is the closest thing to reflexology. I suggest you moisten them with water (a misting spray works great) before use, as your toes will go in a lot easier when the Yoga Toes are wet.

2014-12-17-yogatoes.jpg

7.) Never have a pedicurist razor a callus or treat ingrown nails. Marton’s pick is Wicked by essie. “Not only are dark colors stylish, but they bring more attention to the hands and feet, which will make you be sure to care for each the way you should during the winter.”

2014-12-17-deepdarkmaniEricaMarton.jpg

8.) Do you when choosing a polish. There’s something pleasurable about looking at your digits and seeing something that reflects your personal aesthetic. “Treat yourself to what you love. When you catch a glimpse at yourself, you will be a little happier,” says Marton.

10.) The secret to giving a good foot massage is to focus your energy and follow these steps. Rubbing someone’s feet is a very personal experience, and if done right, will leave the recipient basking in pleasure. “I focus my energy on the client,” begins Marton, “and I imagine what she or he went through that day.” After establishing that intimate connection, be thorough in your efforts: Use both hands, and begin with your thumbs, rubbing into the heel of the foot. Then move on to the ball of the foot and gently spend time in the arch, applying as much pressure as is comfortable. Give the bones around the ankle a tender circular massage, and finish by sliding your fingers in between each toe (you can give it a pull if you like; the joint might pop, which is harmless). For bonus points, pay attention to the meat of the calf and Achilles tendon, kneading muscles that will ultimately relax the foot. Lesson learned from amateur reflexology: It might be cold outside, but after a massage like this, feet are left tingling.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Bronze Lids and Fuchsia Lips: Why a Statement Coat Calls for Statement Makeup

Jennifer Lawrence beauty

After giving a nod to the seventies with a suede fringe bag yesterday afternoon, Jennifer Lawrence skipped ahead to the eighties last night. Spotted at a performance of The Elephant Man on Broadway, the actress helped her leopard-print jacket realize its full potential with a flash of hot pink lipstick and gleaming bronze lids. Glowing skin and a wash of cream highlighter blended along her cheekbones kept things fresh, while her signature chin-length waves felt as modern and casual as her varsity sweater. The verdict? Win-win.

It’s safe to say any day that starts with the stunning Natasha Marley is going to be a good day. First thing this morning, I logged into Only Tease and saw this very sexy Prestige Tease set of Natasha Marley teasing in a smart secretary outfit.

HoliGay Shopping List

Well, it’s that time of the year again, when you need to find just the right gifts for all your loved ones. And of course some of your family members are inevitably part of the LGBT community. One important factor to be aware of is that companies are increasingly becoming conscious of their corporate responsibility when it comes to being inclusive.

What I mean by that is that companies are clued in to the fact that we as consumers want to buy from businesses that support equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. A great resource that I would like to direct you to is the Human Rights Campaign’s Holiday Buyer’s Guide, which provides a comprehensive review of a great number of businesses concerning how LGBT-friendly they are.

2014-12-15-BuyersGuide2015Facebook.png

According to the HRC’s website, here’s how they calculate their ratings:

Businesses are rated on a scale from 0 to 100, based on whether or not they have policies that support LGBT employees. These include anti-discrimination protections, domestic partner benefits, diversity training and transgender-inclusive benefits. We provide an estimated score to businesses that have not, after repeated attempts, responded to the survey. An estimated score is reflective of the information that HRC has been able to collect without help or input from a business.

Here are some of the scores that I want you to be aware of when you’re shopping around:

If you’re buying clothes (always a great go-to gift for a fashionable gay person), you probably go to some trendy retailers. Unfortunately, Express has a score of 0. Burberry only has a 15, and J. Crew only has a 30. It’s horrible that these brands we trust really don’t have our best interests at heart.

Some good alternatives would be Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Gap, all of which have scores of 100.

Other stores that have really poor ratings include Radio Shack, which has a 45, but that’s not that big of a deal, because who still shops at Radio Shack anyway? Kohl’s and Michaels both have only a 15. A good alternative for those two would have to be Target, because you can pretty much get anything there.

I encourage you to look at the full HRC Holiday Buyer’s Guide here. We as consumers definitely have the power to support businesses that promote inclusion and equality in the workplace. The more we engage in shopping with a conscience, the better our world will be. With that I’d like to wish you all happy holidays.

How to Navigate the Office Holiday Party in Style

What to Wear to the Office Holiday Party

It’s that time of the year again: that seasonal conundrum of what to wear to the annual office holiday party. The first cardinal rule? There’s no need to don the ornamental bells and whistles of a Christmas tree. The second? Make an effort. “No matter where you work, remember you’re still amongst your colleagues. So you don’t have a lot of wiggle room from your day-to-day look. As a fail-safe approach, dress for your holiday party like you would an important corporate meeting,” says Vogue.com Market Editor Chelsea Zalopany. “Unless the theme is ugly Christmas sweaters.”

Luckily, there are easy one-step tricks to the holiday office party trade. “The best thing to do is to keep it simple yet with a little more chic ‘oomph’ than usual. Try a sleek A-line tea length skirt; it has that immediate Grace Kelly effect of polish,” says Zalopany. “If you usually wear jeans to the workplace, you can opt for a black cigarette pant and oxford button-down,” says Zalopany. As for the accessories? Keep them incognito until the night kicks off. “If you want to up the ante on the accessories, the only thing you need is a simple pair of drop earrings to keep in your bag,” adds Zalopany. “They’ll add a slight shine to your ensemble if the rest of your look is pared back.”

Last-Minute Gifts for Every Makeup-Loving Lady in Your Life

I know what you’re thinking: “Makeup is so personal. I don’t want to get her something she’ll never use.” I’m not telling you to buy her foundation or concealer (both of which are very personal). I’m talking about giving her collectible makeup sets and palettes that are only available this time of year, most of which bundle together products for a discount.

Let’s put it this way, I have more makeup than you could ever imagine and I still want the Tarte holiday signature item every year. Why? Well, the makeup is fabulous (skin-loving ingredients, staying power, flattering colors) and Tarte is always generous when it comes to stuffing these bags to the brim. But it’s also because I actually still use their makeup bags and containers I’ve amassed over the years. In fact right now I’m gazing at the mirrored jewelry box (Tarte 2011 Holiday Starlette Makeup Vanity) that once was full of makeup and now houses my jewelry.

And, you actually get rewarded for waiting so long. Many of these treasures are on sale! Everybody wins.

Tarte Bon Voyage Collector’s Set and Travel Bag ($ 59)

2014-12-17-Sephorablockbuster.jpg

It’s only fitting that I start with Tarte’s 2014 signature holiday item.

Available at Sephora.com.

Make Up For Ever Makeup Studio Case (now $ 39)

2014-12-17-STUDIOCASEPEN.png

She doesn’t shy away from adding a little shimmer to her eye makeup. Give her this magical little black box that has 12 vivid eye shadows, a step-by-step guide and full-size Artist Liner eyeliner. Bonus: The black case is certainly reusable as a jewelry box. I was surprised it didn’t play music (though I’m pretty sure I heard Chopin when I saw the shadows). Available at Sephora.com.

Shu Uemura Shupette Has-it-All Eye & Lip Palette ($ 89)

2014-12-17-shupette.png

Some Of The World’s Most Famous Transgender Women Cover CANDY magazine

2014 has been a whirlwind year for mainstream transgender visibility.

As we approach the end of this historic year for individuals identifying across the transgender spectrum, one magazine is celebrating the women who are living authentically and openly at the forefront of the battle for transgender rights.

For its 8th issue, Winter 2014-2015, C☆NDY Magazine brought together fourteen of the most prominent women who have become the faces of the transgender movement.

spread
From left to right: Laverne Cox, Janet Mock, Carmen Carrera, Geena Rocero, Isis King, Gisele Alicea, Leyna Ramous, Dina Marie, Nina Poon, Juliana Huxtable, Niki M’nray, Pêche Di, Carmen Xtravaganza and Yasmine Petty

C☆NDY cites itself as “the first transversal style magazine” and is reportedly named after Candy Darling, the Andy Warhol superstar.

Luis Venegas, founder of C☆NDY, told Style.com that the shoot found inspiration from Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue. “It’s the first time such a large number of trans women have been featured on the cover of a magazine,” he stated. “Is it too daring to say that we’ve made history? Time will tell.”

We absolutely love this. Check out two individual shots with Laverne Cox and Geena Rocero below.

Chuck Todd 2.0? Inside The Subtle Style Makeover Of NBC’s New Sunday Savior

It’s a good day to be Chuck Todd. The NBC stalwart was just named the new host of “Meet the Press.”

For Todd, it’s the promotion of a lifetime. The legendary Tim Russert brought Todd to NBC News in 2007, and Todd now steps into his mentor’s role.

We had many thoughts about, like, serious stuff when we found out that Todd was taking on this new challenge. But we also had many thoughts about Chuck Todd, Fashion Man, because we’ve been noticing some changes to his whole “style thing” over the past few months. If we were conspiracy-minded gossip-hounds, we’d say that Todd has been eyeing the coveted “MTP” chair and has upped his fashion game accordingly. And since we basically ARE conspiracy-minded gossip-hounds, we’ll just leave that there.

First, though, A Look Back. Todd wasn’t always the goateed griller we know today. C-SPAN tweeted this vintage shot from way back in 1997 earlier this week, following reports about Todd’s new role. (That hairless chin! That head of hair! Etc!) HuffPost style guru Rebecca Shapiro opines, “Looks at those spectacles!”

By 2007, he was basically the Todd we recognize today. The glasses were out, and the famed goatee was in. (Shapiro, however, dislikes the suit, which she described as “dull.”)

chuck todd

And there things stayed…until the past few months, that is.

The host has slimmed down lately. The photo on the left was taken in February and the one on the right in June. Looking good Chuck!

chuck todd

Let’s take a closer look at Todd throughout the past few months. Here he was last fall.

chuck todd

chuck todd

Fast forward to May.

chuck todd

Todd looked more trim and tanned this summer, compared to several months ago. Here are screenshots from “The Daily Rundown” in July and August, respectively. Also we’ve noticed some definite goatee-scaping — everything’s more nice and neat. Says Shapiro, “it’s less ‘reporter on the run’ and more ‘anchor fancypants.'”

Not convinced? Well, one thing is for sure. We’re definitely not in 2011 anymore.

Hollywood Legend Lauren Bacall Has Passed Away

Legendary actress Lauren Bacall has died at the age of 89, Variety reports. The star made her debut in Hollywood at age 19, when she starred with Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not….

Lauren Bacall Dead: Golden Age Star Dies At 89

Hollywood icon Lauren Bacall, star of films such as “To Have and Have Not” and “Key Largo,” died Tuesday at her home in New York City after suffering a stroke, according to reports.

She was 89.

The estate of her first husband, Humphrey Bogart, confirmed the news on Twitter:

Bacall’s sultry appearance, smoky voice and provocative roles propelled her to fame, and would inspire generations of actresses. Her mastery of “The Look,” a suggestive expression where she lowered her head and glanced up, has taken a place in Hollywood lore.

Bacall and Bogart met while filming 1944’s “To Have And Have Not”, the first of their four movies together. The couple married in 1945, had two children, and remained together until Bogart’s death in 1957.

Bacall would go without acting for almost 20 years after his death.

She later married actor Jason Robards Jr., with whom she had another child. Robards died in 2000.

Born Betty Joan Perske on Sept. 16, 1924 in the Bronx, the actress had 72 film credits to her name. She began taking modeling and acting classes as a teen, and landed several walk-on roles in theater. A Harper’s Bazaar editor hired her to model for the magazine, and she landed on the cover in 1943.

Bacall received her only Academy Award nomination for her supporting role in the 1996 film “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” where she played Barbara Streisand’s mother, but her list of accolades is indeed substantial. She won two Tony Awards for her stage performances and received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Career Achievement from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in 1992. In 1997, she received the Kennedy Center Honor, which the Los Angeles Times reports surprised her.

“Listen, I never went into this business thinking of winning anything,” Bacall was quoted as saying. “I went into it because I loved it and I wanted to be good at it. It was a form of expression for me. I love to hide behind characters. So [any recognition] I get is a perk. It’s just an extra. Just the fact that all that happened to me last year, it is — well — fabulous.”

Bacall wrote two memoirs, including “Lauren Bacall: By Myself”, which won a National Book Award in 1980.

Tavi Gevinson On How Taylor Swift Helped Her Through Her First Break-Up

She was sitting front row at fashion shows at the age of 13, running her own magazine by the time she hit 15 and now, at 18, will be starring in the Broadway production of “This Is Our Youth,” this month. Tavi Gevinson seems anything but your average teenager, but as it turns out, her high school experience was … pretty average.

As the newest cover star gracing New York Magazine’s fall fashion issue, the recent graduate is all grown up, opening up about normal teen milestones like crushes, hormones and break-ups (though to be fair, not everyone gets to be consoled by Taylor Swift). Scroll down below for highlights from the interview and photos, and head over to nymag.com for more.

On high school…
“I think everybody should go to high school. It’s horrible, and it unites you with other people.”

On moving to New York…
“Every time I’m like, What if I go to New York and I get caught up and I become a horrible person? But then I’m also like, I’m about to discover a lot of things about myself, like this poem I have on my wall. The last lines are: ‘You have not grown old and it is not too late to dive into your increasing depths where life calmly gives out its own secret.’ And that’s something that I repeated to myself a lot after the breakup and that I think about a lot whenever I feel like being a teenager is so much of who I am and I get nervous, and then it’s like, No. Things are just beginning.”

On the bright-side of this summer’s break-up…
“… coming out of the breakup has kind of reignited my love for fashion, because it’s a way of asserting a new identity and becoming a new person and giving yourself space.”

On her first break-up with her high school boyfriend…
“I flew straight to New York for a wedding, and then I visited Taylor Swift at her home in Rhode Island. I hate being heartbroken, but who better to discuss it with than Taylor Swift?”

On her identity as an actor…
“I no longer get into stupid thought wormholes about identity and stuff. At one time I did have some impostor syndrome about acting, but then I remembered I’ve been doing this since I was little, actually.”

On her character in “This Is Our Youth”…
“Kenny said most girls just play her as a bitch, and in the beginning I think I was playing her that way, but then I started discovering her layers.”

On whether she’ll miss being a teenager…
“I will try to hold on to the intense feeling. I will both be glad that that’s no longer happening and kind of miss it. When you’re 14, you’re basically on drugs all the time — the hormones in your body are so crazy. But I really loved and appreciated the intensity of that. And you’re experiencing everything for the first time, so everything feels like an epiphany. And, like, I really liked the experience of having a crush, because I was like, this is my thing and it doesn’t have to do with you and you’re just some dummy boy for me to project on.”

Pregnant Kelly Rowland Glows In Gorgeous Instagram Photo

Just gorgeous.

Kelly Rowland looked radiant in an Instagram photo posted Aug. 9:

The 33-year-old mom-to-be smiled over her shoulder as she cradled her growing belly. Rowland captioned the photo, “#P.R.” as she is currently vacationing in Puerto Rico.

Rowland first announced her pregnancy on June 10 with a cryptic Instagram photo of baby sneakers. The Destiny’s Child alum accidentally revealed that she’s expecting a baby boy during an interview, in which she referred to her baby using the pronoun “his.”

“Aw, f–k it! It’s a boy. It’s a boy!” she said after realizing her slip up.

10 Hidden Wedding Costs You Probably Forgot To Consider

By Kellee Khalil for Lover.ly

When planning a wedding, it’s easy to think about your budget in terms of big ticket items: the dress, the venue, the flowers, the food and beverages. But it’s the little wedding-day extras that can really add up and put you over your intended budget. So before you come thousands of dollars short due to unexpected wedding costs, read on for the hidden fees you may have forgotten to add to your budget.

1. Postage. We’ve found that engaged couples make many trips to the post office! Wedding invitations often need extra postage due to their weight and shape. You also need to account for a stamp for each guest’s RSVP, thank you card, and save the date.

2. Service fees, tax, and gratuity. Read the fine print carefully on your catering contract; you’ll likely have to pay sales tax on your food and booze, and you may be on the hook for a 20 percent service fee and an 18 percent gratuity. That means if your venue has a $ 10,000 food and beverage minimum, an 8.25% sales tax plus service and gratuity could add another $ 4,635 to your final bill.

3. Tips. If gratuity isn’t included in a contract, etiquette still dictates that you give most vendors a tip of some sort. While the specifics will depend on how many vendors you use and whose contract includes gratuity, most couples should plan to tip the photographer, videographer, florist, musicians/DJ, driver, officiant and hair and makeup stylists.

4. Cake cutting fees. Many venues now either provide a wedding cake as part of their package or require that you work with a specific bakery. If your venue does allow you to bring your own cake, they may charge a cake cutting fee. So you can bring in a cake from your favorite baker or something your Aunt Betty whips up, but be prepared to spend $ 1-$ 3 per slice to have your venue’s staff cut the cake.

5. Table, chairs, and place settings rentals. Before you book your venue, find out what they provide in terms of furniture and serving ware. If they offer functional brown folding chairs and long, no-frills, brown banquet tables, you may find yourself wanting to upgrade. The same goes for linens, place settings, and glasses. It could cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars to turn your budget venue’s offering into your dream wedding space.

6. Wedding gown alterations. Most brides who buy a dress in bridal salons have their dress altered to fit them perfectly…a cost that’s not included in the price of the gown. Expect to pay $ 200-$ 400, and ask your bridal salon about the cost of alterations before you hand over your credit card for the gown.

7. Hair and makeup trial runs. If you’re budgeting for professional hair and makeup services, be sure to account for the cost of any trial runs too. Doing a trial run makes a lot of sense — it’s a great way to make sure you and your stylist are on the same page regarding your look — but it can cost around $ 100 for each trial session. We suggest having your trials on the day of your bridal shower or engagement photo session; if you’re paying the fee, you might as well put that full face of makeup or gorgeous blowout to good use!

8. Travel and accommodations. It’s not uncommon for the engaged couple to stay at a hotel the night before their wedding, and often the bride will pay for her bridesmaids to stay with her. And if you’re not getting married in your city or town, you may have to make multiple trips the city where your wedding will be held to look at venues or meet with vendors. Be sure to consider these costs when deciding where you’ll be married.

9. Packaging and labels. As you envision your wedding favors, be sure to account for the cost of all the elements of the mini gift. A huge bottle of local honey might cost $ 50 at the farmers market…but the mini jars, kraft paper labels, and calligraphy pen you’ll need to make it look fancy could add another $ 50 to the project. So price out all the favor packaging before you commit to anything.

10. Shipping. One of the best things about being a modern bride is shopping for your wedding online. While bigger retailers typically offer deals on shipping, smaller retailers (like those selling packaging, paper products, decor, and other party supplies) often have surprisingly pricey shipping. For example, the website that gives you the best deal on bulk jars for your honey favors might also charge $ 15 to ship them. As you research these online, be sure to keep track of what they charge for shipping.

The Makeup Expiration Dates You Need To Know

When’s the last time you gave your makeup bag a thorough clean out? If it’s been few months, or — gulp — years, there’s a good chance more than a few of your products have expired.

To make sure the cosmetics you apply are safe and effective, celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg says to use your senses. “You need to smell your makeup,” Greenberg says. If something’s off, your nose knows — and that means it’s time to toss.

In the above #OWNSHOW video, Greenberg goes six makeup expiration dates you need to know and gives helpful tips for making your products last.

Eyeliner: 6 months to 1 year
Gel eyeliner only lasts six to eight months because you’re constantly double-dipping a brush into a pot, says Greenberg. A pencil, on the other hand, has a shelf life of one year. “If you’re using a pencil, you can sharpen it and it’s not going to be a breeding ground [for bacteria] as much,” she says.

Mascara: 3-6 months
To get the full six months out of your mascara, don’t make this common mistake. “A lot of us pump our mascara to get more on there,” Greenberg says. “That actually lets air in there, it dries out the formula and you’re also letting in bacteria.”

Blush, eye shadow, and other powder cosmetics: 1-2 years
Powder lasts longer than wet formulas, but Greenberg warns to check them periodically. “If the formula changes at all, toss it. If it smells, toss it. And if the color goes out of style, toss it!”

Foundation: 6 months to 2 years
Foundation packaged in a pot expires in about 6 months, whereas a pump formula can last one to two years. When your foundation expires, look at it as an opportunity to try something new. “I think your skin gets used to having that formula on it,” she says. “Try a new foundation after the pump is over.”

Lipstick: 2 years
Change in color, texture or smell are all big warning signs that your lipstick has expired. If your lipsticks pass the test, Greenberg says to just things clean. “Clean them off, wipe them off, spray them with a little bit of alcohol just to keep them sanitized.”

Natural products: 3-6 months
Think of your natural, preservative-free cosmetics as food, Greenberg says. “If you keep them in your refrigerator they’ll last a little longer, but the natural stuff is going to go way quicker,” she warns.

More from #OWNSHOW: Greenberg walks through the steps to create the perfect cat eye.

Angela Bassett Admits Her Two Biggest Weaknesses

Angela Bassett is an exemplary 55 year-old, and not just for her timeless beauty.

The seasoned actress recently finished her debut directorial project, a Whitney Houston biopic starring Yaya DaCosta, and is also up for a Primetime Emmy for her role in “American Horror Story: Coven.”

Lexy Lebsack of Violet Grey, a Los Angeles dressing studio-turned-luxury-beauty installation and e-commerce store, sat down with the Hollywood veteran for a Violet Files profile on how Bassett gets ready to hit the red carpet.

angela bassett

When asked what she sees when she looks in the mirror, Bassett described, “A passionate woman who knows what she loves and has been blessed to be able to do it… and continue to do it!”

The talented Golden Globe-award winner did admit to two weaknesses, “Love… and sugar,” and a vulnerability that only comes out, “When I’m told I can’t do something. When I’m told I’m not good enough, that I can’t have something, can’t go somewhere, especially because of the color of my skin.”

Her advice for young actors was steeped in all the wisdom you’d expect from an entertainment veteran.

“When great actor does their job they’re leaving a part of their soul in the room. It takes a little out of you, but that’s okay,” she said. “Life will take a little out of you, love will take a little out of you, we’re talking about demonstrating the best and the worst of the human experience.”

But acting alone won’t take you all the way, according to Bassett.

“For me, it’s vitally important. Once you see that come to life you can see the character slowly emerge,” she continued. “It allows you to go deeper, to discover her perspective and her idiosyncrasies. I look in the mirror to see how she moves, how she feels, how she speaks; then the moment happens when it’s like ‘Hello, I’m here.’”

Which is why she gives her creative team so much freedom.

“I just let them do what they do because they marry the look to the moment. It’s like a dance: We’re all doing it, and every person has their part. Everything has to meet and become one voice.”

Bassett may be stunning as ever, but she knows well that no one in the public eye is safe from criticism.

“You can’t be in this industry if you’re afraid of a little rejection.”

7 Quick Tips to Map Your Midsummer Madness Makeover

Midsummer madness can involve any number of interesting events or life changes — a last-minute romantic vacation splurge, a BFF spontaneous road trip, a cross-country move for your dream job or the monumental first fall semester at college — and all involve some sort of beauty prep work, makeover or packing of essential beauty items. These plans often trigger instant panic or fuel our desperate desire for a mini or even maxi overhaul in the beauty department. But it is possible to roll with the madness (and get great results), with a little planning. . . .

1. Get a game plan.
Whether you have 3 hours or 3 days to whip up your new image, pause and assess your needs so you can assimilate your makeover action plan. Make a list of what you need to do or what you’d like to accomplish — writing it down will give you clarity and focus. Next, pull out your calendar and book time for yourself.

2. Consider one-stop shopping.
While I prefer to do as much DIY as I can, my favorite technique is to call and book into a salon that does it all. In a pinch you can hit the mall — most usually offer a variety of walk-in welcome salons, stores and kiosks to accommodate even the most challenging grooming and product needs. Try chain stores like Sephora, Ulta, Target and Kohl’s (all also available online) — you’ll be surprised what you’ll find there.

3. Collect as you go.
Remember to pick up travel-size beauty samples at your cosmetics counter when you’re out and about. You can find everything from eye-remedy creams and serums to mini-mascaras and travel-friendly hair products; I keep a Ziploc bag of my faves in my bathroom cabinet, that way, when I get whisked away on a last-minute business trip or my son’s volleyball tournament six hours’ away, I don’t need to shop — I’m always ready to go.

4. Try a house call.
Ask your local salon if its staff makes house calls — it’s a super-convenient option, even if it costs a bit more. Another trendy, up-and-coming beauty option is to call in the professionals from Vensette.com, an on-demand beauty service that makes same-day office visits and house calls in record time. The best news is you can book online or through the service’s mobile app.

5. Shop online.
Check your favorite beauty apps and fashionista sites for inspiration. Consider ordering your everyday items (makeup sponges, brushes) in kits or in bulk. I always use the online beauty site frendsbeauty.com; they deliver overnight or the same day if you are local. Ask for samples, travel-size beautification elixirs and short-order to-go potions or have them throw in small refillable bottles. Ordering online also allows you to have extra time and energy for last-minute wardrobe incentives or accessories (or just an afternoon nap or extra Pilates class).

6. Think fresh.
Whether it’s a new mani/pedi, a full-body scrub, spray tan or if you’re simply trying out a few new bronzers and glosses — go with the glow and do what feels good to you this summer. And don’t skip the basics that can help get make any trip, event or new job effortless: the necessary lash and brown arch, the perfect trim, a twisted knot, braided bun or chic blow out. Even a few extra naturally adhered lashes make all the difference in the world.

7. Mix and match.
Your whole goal here is to map out a detailed list of your beauty must-dos and manage your makeover in minutes. So don’t forget to mix and match: inexpensive with that must-have item; time-consuming treatments with “quick fixes”; salon treatments with DIY home remedies.

The key is to have fun — enjoy your makeover with minimal madness no matter what your motives are. The ultimate solution to a new and better you is minutes away.

Manners in Our Digital World


Bad manners seem to be everywhere! Whether it’s dinner guests fielding phone calls in the middle of a meal, drivers playing chicken for parking spaces, or the idiot on the subway clipping his toenails, we are one unmannered bunch.

We Babes interviewed Henry Alford, author of Would It Kill You To Stop Doing That: A Modern Guide to Manners, to get his take on whether our manners have gotten worse….or just changed with the times. Henry is a regular contributor to The New York Times and Vanity Fair, and is the author of three other acclaimed works of “investigative humor.” Here’s his take on today’s rude behavior.

Cell Phone TMI

Rude cell phone users seems to be the bane of the mannered. While sitting on the subway, or cooling our heals in the grocery check-out line, do we really need to know about a stranger’s acid reflex issues or that the boyfriend hooked up with someone else while drunk last night???? TMI!

Facebook Postings

And what about those rude people that post Facebook picture of parties, with all their nearest and dearest friends having a rollicking good time. Did our invitation get lost in the mail… again?!

Drug Store Restraint

Did you know that it’s polite to practice “drug store restraint?” For example, if you see your neighbor at the local pharmacy buying hemorrhoid cream, it’s probably best not to make a beeline towards them to chat. Henry suggests we head quickly to another aisle, thereby leaving your neighbor with his dignity intact.

“Reply All”

If you want to be seen as mannerly in the office — please don’t hit the “reply all” key when responding to a group e-mail with non-essential comments like “great” “thanks” or the worst, “Have a nice day.” Henry says this is like a “pixilated version of a styrofoam peanut!”

It Really Has Gotten Better

Finally, even though Henry complains a lot about the modern day unmannered, he says our manners have definitely improved, especially from the era of the 17th century German Christmas revelers. When their dinner parties really got going, and the spirits were flowing, guests would throw dog turds at one another, just for fun. Now that behavior would be considered downright rude — in any century!

Easy To See Why People Think This Is The ‘Bike Of The Future’

Imagine a stylish, yet sturdy, bicycle with storage space for all your stuff, a handlebar that doubles as a lock, and a removable electric motor that can give you a much-needed boost on those steep city hills.

This bicycle also has automatic gear-shifting and a clever lighting system, complete with integrated brake lights and turn signals, and lights that automatically switch on when it gets dark out.

If you think this sounds like some sort of commuter super-bike of the future, you’d be only half right.

The bike, dubbed the “Denny,” was crowned the winner this week at the Oregon Manifest Bike Design Project competition. The contest pitted five teams from across the country (each a collaboration between a bike company and a design firm) against each other in the creation of the “ultimate urban utility bike.”

The teams were “competing to concept, create and champion their unique vision of tomorrow’s bicycle for the everyday rider,” the project’s website says. “The results will redefine the category and have the potential to reshape urban mobility itself.” The winner was determined by popular vote.

By beating out the competition, the masterminds behind the “Denny” — Seattle-based design consultancy Teague, which has designed the interior of Boeing jetliners, and custom bike builder Sizemore — will now be partnering with Fuji Bikes to turn their idea into a real, mass-produced product.

According to KING-TV, at least 1,000 Denny bicycles will be manufactured for sale. The bikes are scheduled for public release next year.

Though the retail price of the bike has yet to be made public, the Denny — which Engadget calls the “bike of the future” — already has a group of fans.

“Please put this bike into production. I need it,” wrote one Vimeo user last week after watching the promo video for the bike. “I’m seriously begging here. Please.”

“I want one of those desperately,” wrote another.

To learn more about the “Denny” or the other four bikes designed for the Oregon Manifest Bike Design Project, visit the project’s website here. Watch the video, below.

7 Ways to Like Your Body More (Because We’re Tired of the BS)

This post originally appeared on Bustle.

By Rachel Krantz

If there’s one thing that’s become clear to me over the last few years, it’s this: Nearly every woman I meet, work with or assume is perfect probably struggles with her body image. No, we don’t all have eating disorders or even disordered eating habits. But, unfortunately, every woman I’ve ever taken the time to ask has admitted she has an issue with at least one part of her body, face or appearance.

Personally, I came to the disordered eating party a bit late. I had managed to mostly fixate on disliking other parts of myself (see: my personality) until I was 24, when I took a job working the night shift as an editor at a different website. I suddenly found myself under increasing amounts of stress, and (just for extra credit!) in a half-baked relationship with a guy who withheld his affection.

My body understandably freaked out. My stomach felt bloated and tense all the time. When I went to the doctor, she suggested I go gluten-free, which did help somewhat, but created a new problem. Cutting something completely out of your diet can be dangerous, and for me, it led to a cycle of restricting foods that fell into the “bad” category, only to binge on all my “good” foods when I got off work in the middle of the night.

Food became the cause, the reward and the punishment; the funnel through which I attempted to pour control over a job and relationship that left me feeling increasingly disconnected from my body.

Now, just two years later, I view the path to regaining a healthy relationship with my body as one of the most important challenges of my 20s. Therapy, a new job and a new relationship have all been essential ingredients. But the real work? I’ve been teaching myself — deliberately, and in small ways, everyday — to love my body again.

Recovering from an eating disorder, body dysmorphia or any kind of ongoing body image issue is no small task, and professional help should always be sought. But if you’re looking to supplement that help with some small, tangible exercises, I highly recommend using these practices as jumping off points.

Meditate for just 10 minutes a day

2014-07-01-7db78720dd4b01316cb00aa0f90d87b4.gif

For me, meditation has truly changed everything about my relationship with myself. I resisted meditating for a long time, because I thought I was failing at it if my mind wasn’t completely empty. But as I’ve learned more about meditation over the past year, I found out that those thoughts are actually an essential part of the practice. By simply sitting with yourself and focusing on your breath, you are forced to become friends with the voices in your head (and yes, we all have them).

Often, without even realizing it, we have a downright abusive relationship with ourselves. We tend to bark orders, judge and degrade ourselves (sadly, especially as women). By just sitting and attempting to reconnect to the present moment through our breath, we become reacquainted with our our mind and learn to drive it — rather than the other way around.

It’s nearly impossible to hate someone once you truly get to know them. Meditating has helped me foster a kinder relationship with myself, so that when my mind inevitably goes to self-hating places, I actually notice it, because that voice doesn’t sound like the friend I’ve come to know.

To begin, try this exercise: Sit cross-legged and upright. Place one hand on your heart, and the other on a part of your body you tend to fixate on (for me it’s my stomach). Close your eyes and try to cultivate a feeling of love and acceptance — just love and acceptance — for that part of your perfectly imperfect body.

When you feel done, open your eyes, stare softly straight ahead and try to focus on your breath for just five minutes. Don’t alter your breath or get mad at yourself for having inevitable thoughts and feelings come up. Just notice whatever is naturally there. When thoughts arise, note them and then try to come back to your breath.

If intense feelings surface, try to feel where they are in your body. (Where do you feel pain or fear? For me, it’s also in my stomach.) Let whatever feelings you’re having wash over you fully, if only for a moment. Don’t push the uncomfortable away. Instead, let yourself feel whatever it is you’re feeling and then, simply return to your breath.

It’s that simple and that difficult. Do this for five minutes in the morning and five minutes before bed and trust me, interesting things will begin to happen.

Confront your own image

2014-07-01-huffpo22.jpg

When I was feeling my worst, I’d often cast my eyes down when passing my mirror, just to avoid my own image. (Oh, and then I’d beat myself up for being so idiotic, which was super productive.)

One day, when I was really fed up with my mirror-avoidance, I got a crazy idea: What if I made a video of myself on Photobooth and described, to my own face, what I saw? What if I turned the inner mirror monologue out?

Here’s all I did: I turned on Photobooth’s video camera and looked at myself as I was speaking and recording. The result was super weird and kind of cool (who doesn’t like seeing what they actually look like when they talk?), and shockingly, it was also empowering.

I told the camera what I saw and what I did and didn’t like. The results were surprising: What I thought I hated (my stomach) was actually not what I found myself disliking in realtime. Of course, I found plenty of other things to dislike just as strongly, as well as some surprising parts of myself that I found fundamentally OK, even kind of adorable. I realized, once again, that no matter what I “fix” there will always be more parts of myself to change.

By giving voice to my inner critic and making myself basically say it to my own face, a funny thing happened: That critic lost a little of her power. She finally had her chance to say her piece out loud, and though she’s never one to shut up completely, she was able to step aside for the rest of the night.

Be naked more

2014-07-01-241dd390dad00131bfa20eb233c768fb.gif

Oh god, I can just feel my roommates cringing. No, not naked in the kitchen or living room (unless you live alone, in which case hello naked cooking), but in your own bedroom. Since I’ve started sleeping naked, not only do I sleep better (your temperature is better regulated) but I’ve also starting appreciating my body more. When I wake up, I do some naked yoga and stretch in front of the mirror. Laugh all you want, but it’s a great way to greet the day; moving, breathing and confronting my own beautiful, healthy body. I highly recommend it. If you live with a partner, don’t be shy — they will love it too.

Make self-love dates

2014-07-01-a0333cd0dad001316c870aa0f90d87b4.gif

Hey, you’re already naked, right? This is one we women somehow often forget to do, and believe me, it has repercussions. Just think of it this way: Almost every guy out there masturbates regularly. You think the fact that they walk around the world like they own it isn’t connected?

While I’m not much of a morning person, I do believe that making time to connect to your own body in that way (even if you are having sex regularly) is crucial to having a healthy relationship with your body. If you only have orgasms with a partner, you will, on some level, always need to have someone on the outside affirming that you’re sexy and lovable. Masturbating helps you connect with what you want and how damn fine you really are. Make a date with yourself, and if it helps motivate you, consider it exercise — it gets your heart rate up, flexes plenty of muscles and has numerous mental and physical health benefits.

Try a writing exercise

2014-07-01-18939990de080131bfc70eb233c768fb.gif

I’ve found that even if I write for 10 minutes once a week, it can really help me tap into what’s actually going on. If words don’t start pouring out of you right away, try this simple exercise to focus on body image:

First, imagine your inner food critic. She’s the voice that tells you that you shouldn’t have eaten that second piece of cake or that says you look ugly when you’re brushing your teeth or that you would have a partner if you only lost 10 pounds.

Give the pen to her and write out everything she thinks about you and your body. Keep the pen moving for five minutes and don’t edit or stop writing. When you think you’ve run out of nasty things to say to yourself, just keep going until time is up.

When you’re done, hand the pen over to your “inner best friend” and write for five minutes. Your inner best friend is the kindest part of yourself — and not necessarily the voice you should always channel — but she is the other extreme. Keep writing in her voice until time is up.

So, for example, while the food critic might have written “You know you can’t eat that because when you let go you start getting fat,” the sweetheart writes “Eat anything you want! You will still be loved with 15 more pounds.”

Giving voice to both of these extremes may help you meet somewhere in the middle, where your actual opinion lies. Do this exercise with care and some caution, and remember — the critic is just that — a critic.

Don’t make plans on Sunday for a month

2014-07-01-a301ac90dae80131bfaf0eb233c768fb.gif

I got this idea from my friend Natalie, and I liked it so much that I try to do this every weekend now. You’re probably wondering what not making plans has to do with body image. Well, for me, one of the hardest things about recovering a healthy relationship with food has been learning to listen to when I’m hungry again. I found that during my period of restricting and binging I had lost touch with what I really wanted.

Not making plans on Sundays has helped me get back in touch with what I actually want, rather than what I think I should want. When I wake up without plans, I actually ask myself: What do you feel like doing right now? Whereas in the past I would have already formed a list of errands or social obligations for the day, now I just do whatever it is I genuinely feel like doing.

Sometimes it’s sleeping another hour. Sometimes it’s running errands. Sometimes it’s cooking brunch or simply laying in the park all day. I try to follow each urge, moment to moment, and simply act in accordance to what I want to do, without judging myself. It’s incredibly liberating and relaxing, and has not only made my weekends a hell of a lot more fun, but has also helped me communicate with myself on a much more honest level.

View this as a communal struggle

2014-07-01-bf390010dae80131bfb10eb233c768fb.gif

I saved the most important tip for last. Yes, meditating and all of the work you can do on your own is crucial. But one of the most suffocating aspects of struggling with body image is that we all think it’s our own dirty little secret. If you’re anything like me, you probably even feel stupid, guilty or embarrassed of having these “trivial” thoughts to begin with. You may even feel that if you don’t have a full-blown eating disorder you don’t deserve to talk about the ups and downs of your relationship with food and your body.

In fact, you must talk about it — not just for yourself, but also for other women. Talking to your friends about body image, and asking about their own experience, is crucial for destigmatizing what I believe is still very much taboo: Most of us are, on some level, struggling with this.

I’ll never forget one day here last year at Bustle, when we had our first company headshots taken. Looking at the digital images that day, I felt particularly awful about the way I looked. But instead of just keeping it inside, I admitted to my coworkers Meredith and Alex that I was feeling bad — and they chimed in with relief that they had been feeling annoyed about their pictures too. The joy we felt at sharing how we were actually feeling was palpable. So, naturally, we decided to take a whole bunch of flattering selfies on (once again) Photobooth.

I felt not only beautiful, but also empowered: We had taken our own image back.

2014-07-01-7900c0b0ddfe01316cb10aa0f90d87b4.jpg

Talk to your friends about this stuff and you’ll quickly find that they too are probably struggling to figure out what a healthy relationship with their body looks like. After all, things have gotten mighty tangled: Because the language of female perfection has in many ways shifted from “being skinny” to being “healthy,” it can often feel as if we’re the only ones for whom “being healthy” doesn’t actually feel very healthy at all.

Every time we give another woman permission to talk about her experience openly, we reclaim a little power from a society that tells us we should just grin and juice cleanse it.

And that, much like my reflection in the mirror, is a beautiful thing.

Isaiah Webb, AKA ‘Incredibeard,’ Grows His Way To Ripley’s Immortality

Behind every good beard is a great woman.

At least if the beard belongs to Isaiah Webb, a San Francisco-based employee of Sony, who has earned a bit of Internet fame as “Incredibeard.”

Every Monday via various social media channels, Webb posts a picture of himself with his beard in some bizarre shape or pattern.

His most famous photo shows him turning his beard into a ramen bowl.

incredibeard

He credits his wife, Angela, with turning him into a tonsorial superstar.

“My wife’s into fashion and she likes beards,” he told The Huffington Post.

Webb’s wife’s fashion sense is paying off for Webb in new ways. He’s one of the characters featured in the newest Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! book, “Reality Shock!” debuting Sept. 9.

Webb’s had facial hair since he was 11. About four years ago, his beard was enough to “play with” so he and his wife started shaping it into fun shapes.

“We never knew we’d get the attention,” he said. “It was just fun and we thought, ‘Let’s do this as often as we can.'”

Eventually they ran out of ideas of what to do with his beard, so they solicited suggestions from fans.

incredibeard

Webb is branching into the business of hair care. In August, he is coming out with a special comb he’s invented for long beards.

“It has a special brush that untangles hair,” he said. “You can brush your beard when it’s wet.”

That’s not his only dream.

“I really want to bring more exposure to beard competitions in the U.S.,” Webb said. “It’s one thing to grow a long beard, but if you connect with like-minded individuals, it helps sustain your interest in the beard.”

The Ultimate Guide On How Not To Behave At A Wedding

As a wedding guest, there are certain standards of behavior that the bride and groom expect you to uphold.

Unfortunately, sometimes people leave their common sense at home. They’d be wise to check this Reddit thread that emerged Wednesday, which asked folks “What should you absolutely not do at a wedding?” and garnered over 16,000 comments.

If you don’t have time to read all those, we did the hard work for you. Here are 17 things you should never do on the big day, lest you want to be hated forever.

1. “Do not bring up the subject of the groom’s ex-wife, especially in a speech.”

2. “Stick your finger in the cake.”

3. “Pick up all the flowers the flower girl drops.”

4. “Grill the bride and groom about when they are having children… I’m paying for your drinks is it that hard to just say congratulations?!”

5. “Get in the photographer’s way, or take your own flash photos during the ceremony.”

6. “I’m a divorce attorney. I’ve been told NOT to hand out business cards at weddings.”

7. “If you are in the bridal party, don’t get smashed before the wedding toasts/dinner. I went to a wedding where one of the groomsman passed out at the head table during speeches.”

8. “Show up if you didn’t RSVP/said you weren’t coming.”

9. “Organize a wager amongst the guests. They can bet how many weeks the marriage will last.”

10. “Get drunk and blurt out something like ‘I slept with your wife!'”

11. “Hit on the bride.”

12. “My mother in law stood up at my wedding reception and said ‘This marriage between Henry and what’s her name is never going to last.’ I am ‘what’s her name.’ Don’t do that. I’m still angry 13 years later.

13. “Drink a quart of whiskey before the ceremony, refuse to put on a shirt during the ceremony and then sit in your car and blast techno the whole time because you were asked to leave. Someone did this at a wedding I was at on Saturday.”

14. “Never stop the ceremony to propose to your girlfriend. Sure you’ll have free pictures and video of it, but everyone will be pissed at you forever.”

15. “If you are a bride, DON’T HOLD ANY BABIES. They are going to shit/piss/vomit/bleed/cry all over you.”

16. “Request the DJ play ‘The Rains of Castamere’.”

And for the win:

17. “Don’t bring random not significant partners to your friends wedding … one of our groomsmen asked to bring the girl he had recently started dating … a few years later, long after they had broken up, our friend bumped into her brother. He asked how she was doing. Brother’s response? ‘Not good man, she’s in jail for life. She murdered our mother.’ And that is how I came to have a murderer in my wedding photos.”

Yes, You Can Wear This Hot Hair Trend! Here’s Everything You Need To Know To Rock Candy-Colored Hair

By Lindsey Coco for GLAM4GOOD

What’s the hottest hair trend right now? It’s candy-colored hair! Sporting this style has a way of transforming any outfit into a fashion statement. It’s a bold, stylish way to showcase your individuality and make everyone do a double take. But, before you break out the bleach, check out this very GLAM4GOOD guide to rocking this cool hair trend the right way!

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR COLOR

2014-07-29-Double.jpg

Pick a color you like and can wear easily. Stick to a “neutral” pastel color such as pink, peach, blue, violet, mint, etc. It will be easier to match your clothes and accessories with a softer color.

Stick to one shade of color. If you want to get creative and dye your hair two different colors, be sure the colors blend well together — such as blue and purple or blue and pink. Don’t go for more than two colors.

Make sure the color complements your skin tone. “Your skin tone is the basis to your hair so you want to make sure they complement one another,” says Dr. Ngozi Etufugh. Does your skin have warm, more yellowish tone or does it have a cool, more pinkish tone? The more contrast between your hair color and skin tone, the more dramatic your look will appear. If you choose a hair color that is similar to your eye color or complements it, the combination will give a more natural look. It all depends on the look you are going for, not everyone wants the natural look.

2014-07-29-T3.jpg

Consider different ways to highlight the hair. Think about whether you want to dye your hair one solid color or highlight it. Ombre gives a more natural blended look which starts with a darker color at the root of the hair to a lighter finish at the end using the same color tone.

Make a consultation with a hairdresser. Choosing a hair color can be difficult and terrifying at the same time. If you’re permanently dying your hair, you want to make sure you speak to your hairdresser about the color as well as the safest way to do it.

2014-07-29-P1.jpg

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR COLOR

To get candy-colored hair, you most likely have to bleach your hair. Bleaching your hair eliminates natural oils causing more breakage. Here are Dr. Etufugh’s tips on how to restore your hair’s health after bleaching.


2014-07-29-T1.jpg

The colder the better. It is better to wash your hair with cold water.

Use sulfate and paraben-free shampoo.

Use a deep conditioning treatment for your hair. At least twice a week.

Avoid washing your hair everyday. Try to go some time between washes. If your hair gets dirty easily, try dry shampoo — it can be a lifesaver.

Put vinegar in your hair after dying it. Research shows that applying vinegar to freshly dyed hair can help the color hold better.

• Limit the use of heating tools. Such as hair straighteners and curling irons.

• Use hair serums. Hair serums coat your hair and protect it from the heat caused when styling it. It also prevents everyone’s worst nightmare: frizz!

HOW TO GET CANDY-COLORED HAIR WITHOUT DYING IT

If breaking out the bleach is not your thing, try some of these alternatives to permanently dying your hair

2014-07-29-P3.jpg

• Hair Chalking. Hair chalking is a quick, simple and an inexpensive alternative to dying your hair. You can do it yourself at home and it washes out.

Clip-on color hair extensions. These extensions will add that pop of color to your hair without the damage.

Couture Condom Dresses Teach Haute Lesson In Safe Sex

Given the option to learn about sex ed from an anatomically correct diagram, or a sizzling dress, most would likely choose the latter –- which is why one Brazilian artist’s advocacy work is taking off.

Since the ’90s, Adriana Bertini, of Sao Paulo, has been configuring defective condoms into art and designer threads in order to raise awareness for HIV and AIDS, and to promote safe sex. Her name is making waves again now since she had a hot yellow number on display at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, which ended on Friday, BuzzFeed reported.

The conference — which had such leaders as Bill Clinton and UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé in attendance –- presented new scientific knowledge and opportunities for dialogue throughout the six-day event.

While Bertini is constantly developing new ways to bring condoms into the limelight, her message has remained constant.

“By using the very material at the center of effort to prevent HIV/AIDS to create something new, she can inspire reflection, foster discussion and challenge taboos,” Bertini’s Facebook page reads.

She hopes that when a woman dons a bikini made entirely out of condoms, or when a guest sees her host’s seat cushion is also made out of the same unexpected material, that such moments will inspire a deeper dialogue about AIDS awareness and having protected sex.

Bertini says that two questions define her mission: What is HIV/AIDS prevention in the first place? How can we create more effective safe-sex campaigns?

To help get more people involved in her project, Condom Couture, Bertini hosts workshops in which participants make their own condom art and talk about the roles they play in sex, according to Buzzfeed.

In addition to her workshops and designing couture items, the artvist (that’s what you get when you combine artist and activist), has also used condoms to pay homage to leaders who have made a lasting difference, including Bono and Nelson Mandela, and to honor those who have succumbed to the disease, according to her Facebook page.

Her ultimate goal is offer up a “new form of thinking in the people in order that they become aware of the reality in situations of risk in the face of HIV,” she wrote on her page. “How can we alert people against the danger of pleasure without advocating self-denial, which we know is impossible?”

Sabina Altynbekova Is Too Beautiful To Play Volleyball, Critics Say

A teenage volleyball player from Kazakhstan is coming under fire, but it’s not because of her skills. It’s because of her looks.

Critics say Sabina Altynbekova, 17, is so beautiful that it’s a distraction to the sport. Even the athlete’s own coach says his team is increasingly about one player, at least as far as the fans are concerned.

“It is impossible to work like this,” Nurlan Sadikov, coach of the nation’s under-19 team, told Tengrin News in a quote translated by the Daily Mail. “The crowd behaves like there is only one player at the championship.”

A Google translation of an article has the coach describing the team as “hampered” by Altynbekova.

Sadikov was speaking specifically about a recent tournament in Taiwan in which the young athlete became an online sensation. Fans across Asia — and, eventually around the world — took to the Internet, smitten with Altynbekova. YouTube videos that show her warming up, high-fiving her teammates or just standing around have received tens of thousands and even hundreds of thousands of views.

The Straits-Times reported that Taiwanese fans were holding Kazakhstan flags and arriving an hour early just to get a glimpse of Altynbekova.

While there are numerous Facebook pages that claim to be associated with her and even a Twitter account with more than 22,000 followers, Altynbekova’s only official online presence appears to be limited to an Instagram account and a page on VK, a social network popular in Europe, Russia and much of the former Soviet states including her native Kazakhstan.

Altynbekova’s mother, Nuripa Amrievna, said the new star had been attending a boarding school for gifted children and recently entered Kazakh University for Humanities and Law.

“I wanted her to be admitted to the law (school), but she chose sports,” she said, according to a Google translation.

She added that her daughter has been asked to model.

“But she will not go there — we as parents are against (it),” she was quoted as saying.

Super Model Andreja Pejic Comes Out As Transgender

Super model Andreja Pejic, formally known as Andrej Pejic, has come out as transgender.

A statement emailed to The Huffington Post by GLAAD notes, Pejic “will only be modeling women’s clothing going forward and has received support from her agency, friends and family.”

Pejic, who previously made waves in the fashion industry with her androgynous look and has been featured on the covers of Elle and French Vogue, among other publications, and has walked in both men’s and women’s fashion shows, said in a statement, “To all trans youth out there, I would like to say respect yourself and be proud of who you are. All human beings deserve equal treatment no matter their gender identity or sexuality. To be perceived as what you say you are is a basic human right.”

She also told Style.com, “I figured out who I was very early on—actually, at the age of 13, with the help of the Internet—so I knew that a transition, becoming a woman, was always something I needed to do. But it wasn’t possible at the time, and I put it off, and androgyny became a way of expressing my femininity without having to explain myself to people too much.”

On her decision to change her name by adding an “a” to the end of it, Pejic noted, “it’s not a full transformation —it’s just an evolution.” She added, “…Andrej is a Christian Orthodox name, and in that religion, it’s definitely a male name. So I kept the ‘j’ and added an ‘a,’ which actually becomes a name that I don’t think exists. But I wanted to keep the ‘j’ because that’s me. That’s my name.”

For the full interview with Style.com, head here.

Pejic left messages for her fans on various social media sites, including Facebook:

Pejic joins a growing list of celebrated transgender models including Carmen Carrera, Geena Rocero and Isis King.

Is Justin Bieber Calvin Klein’s Next Marky Mark?

Justin Bieber could only post so many Instagram photos (here, here and here among others) before rumors started to swirl that the pop star and his much-adored six pack may be the next face of Calvin Klein underwear.

Though the reports remain unconfirmed that Bieber and his signature scowl will be modeling for the brand, a Calvin Klein source reportedly told The Daily Mail that the star was photographed earlier in the year.

The Daily Mail also pointed out that the most recent campaign featuring supermodel Lara Stone are reminiscent of the 1992 black-and-white ads featuring Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg.

Even though we’re still wondering if the rumors are true, there’s one question that’s really on our mind: Will JB ever be able to top the iconic Marky Mark? Will anyone?

In An Image-Obsessed World, This Student Is Going Makeup-Free For An Entire Year

Annie Garau is going a year without wearing makeup.

The 20-year-old Indiana University student began her project in January 2014, after realizing how much time and energy she spent worrying about her appearance. Bombarded by airbrushed celebrities and models and receiving hundreds of messages about how to “improve” your body, Garau had had enough.

“Like most women in this country, I don’t consider myself beautiful,” Garau wrote in a July 19 Lexington Herald-Leader article about her experiment. “I, like many other women, have looked in the mirror and hurled mental insults at what I saw: love handles; weird nose; pale, squinty eyes; thin lips.”

Instead of relying on makeup to boost her self-confidence, Garau decided to see what would happen if she put her cosmetic bag away for an entire year. Two hundred days into the project she’s found that, though some people treat her differently, she’s discovering what it means not to focus on her looks all the time.

annie garau

“I’ve learned that I highly overestimated how much time people spend thinking about my appearance,” Garau told The Huffington Post in an email. “I notice and stress over superficial flaws that no one else actually sees or cares about… I’ve recognized that my looks are just one small part of who I am. It’s been a great experience to spend less time focusing on them and more time focusing on other, more important qualities.”

Garau’s friends support her experiment, but are thus far unwilling to abandon their makeup bags alongside her. She photographed some of her peers with and without their makeup on, presenting the finished portraits in a post on her blog.

born with it

In the blog post, Garau explained her desire to get women to think about their insecurities, and how they may be holding themselves back:

When women are constantly judging ourselves and each other solely on our appearance, how can we expect men not to? When women repeatedly look in the mirror and tell themselves that they are not good enough, how can we gain the confidence needed to become Senators and CEOs?

annie garau

Garau would not describe herself as “anti-makeup,” but is simply hoping to discover what life is like without it.

“Makeup can be a great tool for self-expression, but I hate the fact that many women feel they have to wear it to feel beautiful or even valuable,” she told HuffPost. “I’m all for taking pride in your appearance and putting time and effort into your style and hygiene, but there is a definite imbalance between how much effort men and women put into their looks. I think that in some ways that difference may be impacting women in other aspects of life.”

Garau is unsure whether she’ll continue the project after the year is up, but thinks that her mindset has already shifted for the better.

“I know that in the grand scheme of things, whether or not to wear makeup is probably a trivial decision,” Garau told HuffPost. “But how women perceive themselves — and are perceived by others — is not trivial.”

Kim Kardashian Calls Kanye West’s GQ Cover ‘So Sexy’

Is it a god? Is it a fashion guru? Is it a recently married celebrity? It is Kanye West.

West graces the cover of GQ’s August issue wearing a beige jacket and a white tee that probably costs more than any shirt you own. The issue, which hits stands on July 29, features West opening up about his recent wedding with Kim Kardashian, being a (self-proclaimed) god of fashion and how he keeps his lifestyle outrageous.

Kim also shared a photo of Kanye’s cover on Instagram and wrote “So sexy! My husband on the cover of GQ shot by Patrick Demarchelier!!!”

Selena Gomez’s See-Through Top Is … Interesting

Selena Gomez wore a see-through outfit to a press conference during the Ischia Global Film & Music Festival in Italy. This outfit involved a long-sleeve collared shirt embroidered with roses, a cute white bra to match and a skirt that maybe doesn’t match. Earlier this week, Gomez wore a pretty floral maxi dress and took selfies with shirtless fans in Ischia. That looked like more fun.

How To Throw A Wedding That Everyone Will Be Talking About

2014-07-02-brides_logocopy.jpg

By Elizabeth Mitchell for Brides

Obviously lush flowers and a gorgeous venue are some of the elements of a beautiful wedding, but picture-perfect décor doesn’t ensure an epic party. Score a 10 out of 10 for overall experience by following these simple yet effective tips that will have your guests talking about your wedding for years to come.

1. Ask for song requests.

To ensure everyone is having a great time and dancing the night away, have your guests request a song via the invitation response, recommends Key Largo wedding planner Lynn D’Ascanio of Dasignerevents.com. “Give this list of songs to your DJ, along with the name of the person who requested each song. That way, if the dance floor starts to thin out, the DJ can play songs off of the request list.” This pretty much guarantees that the person who requested the song will get up and dance and encourage others to do so as well.

2. Don’t let your friends and family talk forever.

“Many fun events have been driven into the ground by deathly long speeches,” points out Lynn Jawitz, owner of Florisan Wedding and Event Design in NYC. To keep the party popping, ask your speech givers to keep their toasts short and sweet.

3. Remember to thank your guests.

Speaking of speeches, it’s important to let your guests knows how much you personally appreciate them coming. “It’s hard to believe how often this simple step is overlooked,” notes Jawitz. “Bite the bullet, make a speech (keep it short, of course) and just genuinely thank your guests for dropping their lives that day to share it with you.”

4. And keep them in the know.

According to D’Ascanio, the best weddings are the ones that are organized and follow a timeline. “When the events of the day unfold in a timely manner, and the bridal party and guests alike are not left standing around wondering what’s next or where they should go or what they should be doing, the entire day seems flawless.”

5. Add in an element of surprise.

Who doesn’t love a special surprise at a wedding? “You could hire a group of singers or dancers disguised as wait staff to break out into song or dance during dinner,” suggests D’Ascanio. Or you and the groom could perform a practiced dance routine yourselves for the first dance, offers Greg Jenkins, founder of Bravo Productions. “A ‘wow’ factor can be memorable and will ensure your guests have a blast.”

6. Opt for a short ceremony.

If possible, try to keep your ceremony simple and short in length. “A long, drawn-out ceremony takes away that guest energy level at the onset, and sometimes it cannot be recovered for the reception,” warns Jenkins.

7. Give birthday shout outs.

Does your BFF have a birthday on the same day as your big day? Or is it his parents’ anniversary too? “Have your MC acknowledge any birthdays and/or anniversaries with a dedicated song during the reception,” advises Daniela Grafman, wedding & special events coordinator at Vision Entertainment Group LLC. People love attention. Plus, it’s just a sweet gesture.

8. Hire a great band or DJ.

After all, they can, in fact, make or break a party. Florida wedding planner Aviva Samuels of Kiss The Planner, recommends looking for a high energy performer, while being careful not to choose an annoying personality to be your MC. “Great vocals, great dance moves and great spunk will have everyone up on their feet until it’s time to go home. Seamless song transitions and the ability to read the crowd when they want to hear more of the same sound or a desire to switch to a different sound is where a DJ’s talent also comes into play.”

9. Provide transportation.

If you’re hosting a destination wedding or your wedding is in a remote location, be sure to provide transportation for guests from their hotel to your wedding and back, says Lauren Randolph, founder of My Hotel Wedding. “This way people don’t have to worry about driving home drunk, which guarantees that they can party harder.”

10. Allow your guests plenty of free time.

This is particularly important if you have a destination wedding or a bunch of guests in from out of town, says professional wedding planner Sandy Malone of Weddings in Vieques. “Back to back activities after a long trip will run them into the ground. Let them have some time and space to explore and they’ll be refreshed and excited at all of your events.” We concur.

What to Wear on a Daterview

Haven’t heard of a daterview? That’s ok — I made it up, you’re not alone. But I do believe that if we work together, we can help this new term I just coined gain traction. A daterview is a word that describes the rare event where a date and an interview take place on the exact same day. (Note: a daterview is not to be confused with a date/interview which I had the misfortunate of experiencing a few years ago after being picked up on LinkedIn for what I thought was a job meeting but turned out to be a date — but that’s another story for another day).

The realization of the overlap of these events dawned on me a few days prior to the event itself so I luckily had some time for the situation to marinate and to contemplate some appropriately paired ensembles. Of course, the thought crossed my mind to reschedule one of these events. But my social calendar was jam packed all week and, as a general rule, I think it’s pretty poor form to reschedule a job interview unless ABSOLUTELY necessary (a coinciding date doesn’t seem to qualify…)

Now some of you may be wondering, what’s the big deal? It’s just an outfit. But take a step back and think about it. For a date, one tends to want to emphasize ones’ best… assets. Which incidentally tend to coincide with precisely those lady bits that one insures are properly cloaked during a meeting that pertains to a business opportunity. Fortunately, I work in advertising, a business that’s far more accepting of esoteric fashions and self-expression than others, so a suit was out of the realm of necessity. That said, I haven’t personally crossed over to the mentality that an appropriate interview getup for a creative, are jeans and a button-down. Some planning was in order.

Stepping out of my shower on the day of, I perused the closet.

First dress that I considered was a gray Bailey 44 column dress with no sleeves. Though tight, the higher neckline and longer hem makes it more “conservative” than other choices. Paired with a black cardi and black flats with simple jewelry, it can pass as interview appropriate.

Unfortunately, on the day of, it was a balmy (right) 80 degrees and this dress (which happened to be lined) was just too hot.

Next, I contemplated a simple sleeveless black J.Crew dress — a go-to date outfit for me. It’s sexy without being over the top and I jazz it up with gold jewelry. Unfortunately, I usually wear super high platforms to complete this look, without which, I don’t feel all that special in it. Platforms for an interview seemed like a bad idea. So J.Crew was out as well.

Last out was a blue, high-waisted very structured skirt with bright flowers, paired with a red blousy, thick-strapped tank. Though not my sexiest outfit, whenever I wear this combination, my coworkers call me “super woman” because of the red and blue combo. Who wouldn’t want to feel like superwoman on both a date and an interview? We had a winner! Bring on the daterview!

After all this agonizing about a simple outfit (totally not my thing — I’m very much a one-outfit-and-go type of girl) the interview went well… and the date got cancelled last minute due to a work emergency on his part. I took advantage of my recently freed up evening to attend a movie showing a friend of mine had organized in a beautiful garden in Harlem. Though the shortness of the skirt was less than conducive to an evening spent sitting on a garden floor, I felt accomplished knowing that I potentially could have successfully attended a Daterview without offending either party.

So ladies and gentlemen, I beseech you, help me “make daterview happen.”

Your Customers Deserve the Best, So Take Care of Yourself

We all know what it’s like to chug along on fumes: not much fun. The added problem is that our clients, customers and colleagues also know when we’re exhausted, stressed and hungry. Our diminished condition almost certainly detracts from the work we do.

I want to talk for a moment about taking care of ourselves. I’m going to tear through some of the more obvious ways to do that: get enough sleep, exercise, eat right, don’t smoke, drink a lot of water and not much alcohol. We can’t cheat on these rules for very long without consequences.

I want to suggest another rule, though, that is not so obvious, specifically for us as salon professionals, but anyone devoted to service and the quality of their work could fall prey. It is an ironic hazard of any such profession, I think, that when we spend so much time and attention making our clients beautiful, on making them feel great, that we sometimes neglect ourselves.

We’re certainly not oblivious to our own appearance and happiness but these are probably not our focus. Our clients and our work matter so much that we sometimes overlook our own needs. We see their smiles and that is a terrific source of personal satisfaction. Our own appearance may not seem near so important as the service or product we provide but it certainly sets a tone that translates into value and reputation. That appearance not only affects the experience of our clients but also how we feel about ourselves.

I am not suggesting that we ‘get all dolled up’ for work every day, like we’re headed for the red carpet. I do know, though, that we feel better if we look great and our clients certainly notice.

Try this: Take the time to do something more or different with your appearance some day this week. Step up your clothes or change your makeup. Buy a new pair of really comfortable yet fashionable work shoes that will make standing a lot easier on your body. Some of us already provide our clients with a hand massage while their color is processing. Do that for yourself after work. Run a soothing hot bath and pamper yourself with these same products you so diligently pamper your clients with. Set aside 10 minutes a day to meditate. This is about elevating ourselves at work and at home which results in being happier and healthier overall.

We should regularly make the effort to look great for our clients and for ourselves, but a one-day experiment will highlight the effect. Monitor the outcome. Take note of how other people act toward you. More importantly, reflect on how you feel.

As always, be open to change.

Korean Coed Street Fashion at Ewha Woman’s University!

This is the second installment in a series introducing key fashion neighborhoods in Seoul, Korea, which has become quite a fashion hub and a hotbed of street fashion, although you may not have heard  this yet. It’s my goal to familiarize Western readers  with the fact that parts of Seoul are now hotter than Harajuku in terms of fashion creativity and dynamicism, even if it lacks the Cosplay flash. But that’s what makes the street fashion in Seoul all the more real and interesting. These are the fashions of everyday Koreans and those who follow them sartorially, and these are streets worth watching.
After one of the student interns bravely grab her and combine her to pose, turns out she was with one of the many Chinese tourists who are legion at the Ewha front gate, which is apparently a major tourist destination for the Chinese who come to Korea, an

Ewha Woman’s University is one of the oldest universities in Seoul, founded as many were by American Protestant missionaries, and considered to be one of the top universities a woman can attend in general, right behind what Koreans call the “SKY” universities, which is short for Seoul National, Korea, and Yonsei Universities. Doesn’t fit into the acronym, but it’s up there bumping shoulders of those universities in terms of quality and reputation. Now, despite being a women’s University, one has to remember that Korea is still defined by the gender norms of America in the 1960s. Boys are boys and girls are girls, especially at a women’s University, with the social norm being to wear heels and a dress, full-on makeup, and have every hair on the head in perfect place. Ewha Woman’s University is infamous for what’s students only half-jokingly called the “9 a.m. morning fashion show” in which the front gate is stormed by freshly dressed and fashionable women rushing to their first class of the day amidst a cacophony of click-clacking high heels. This is not to say that every woman in Korean college dresses this way, but I think it would be safe for the non-initiated to completely eliminate any idea of the American-style undergraduate rolling out of bed and into class in one’s pajamas and slippers or without at least a long session spent in front of the makeup mirror.

I started out shooting a bit of Ewha Women’s University front gate for this story, with three student interns in tow, when a lady with the best Korean-style sports jersey dress ever pops into view. This is one of the most popular styles on the Korean streets this summer and it was apropos that she appeared on the scene just as we arrived, so I had to snap a surreptitious shot of her outfit just in case she decided not to pose for camera willingly.

Was out shooting a bit of Ewha Women's University front gate for a story on that neighborhood I'm planning for the Huff Post, with 3 student interns in tow, and a lady with the best Korean-style sports jersey dress ever pops into view.

After one of the student interns bravely grabbed her and got her to pose, it turned out she wasone of the many Chinese tourists who are legion at the Ewha front gate these days, which is apparently a major tourist destination for the Chinese who come to Korea, which made sense since we spotted entire tour groups led by guides with flags right in the area we started shooting.  This young lady turned out to be a confident  street fashion model possessed of a Mona Lisa smile. Turns out she’s an exchange student studying somewhere and Seoul and bought her sports jersey dress in Korea.

Her and her companion were quite the couple and comfortable with the camera. We were actually pretty wise to arrive on campus around noon time, since we are able to find several real students to shoot in their natural environment actually going and coming from class. The Idae area (as it is known to Koreans by its Korean abbreviation of “Ewha” and University” (ewha+dae-hak-kyo=”idae”) is renowned for its young female fashion, but this is often a misleading place for street fashion photographers to shoot since is a major watering hole for women wanting to be fashionable, whether their students are not. So after school hours or on the weekends, most of the women in the area are not representative of young Korean female student fashion. We made sure to be on the spot during the prime hours for actually catching students attending the campus.

We immediately spotted some girls in a coffee shop we went to have a quick meeting and noticed the “West Coast” sports jerseys and were debating whether not to approach them for picture when I noticed that they were wearing matching jerseys T-shirts and that’s cinched it. We had to get them. Find and it turned out they were also Chinese tourists who had just bought T-shirts in Dongdaemun, which they let us know through Google translate, and were eager to show us the very store where they had just seen these shirts earlier and were eagerly pointing it out as I was taking the pictures. They actually wanted to walk us over and show us the shirts on the rack. However, we didn’t have time.

It seemed like we were mostly catching Chinese tourists, and we were hoping to get more actual students from the University. Since it was lunchtime, we decided that moving in toward the center of campus would yield more Korean students actually attending the university, who would be walking out of classes toward the surrounding area. However, given the fact that most of the Chinese tourists and exchange students we were catching seemed to be very big fans of Korean fashion and were actually better models for current trends than even the Koreans were, this turned out to be a good thing. All of the young Chinese women we caught on film were eager to tell us where they had bought their clothes — and the new Dongdaemun Design Plaza seemed to be a major stop on the fashion train for all of them.

We came across something pretty rare these days on the Korean university: an actual demonstration! Well, actually it was more of a quasi-demonstration, a sort of information session designed to get people to sign a petition. I was actually more interested in her hair and her T-shirt then the actual content of the petition drive, and it seemed very much along the lines of something students do. Ewha fashion!

Upon asking this young lady whether or not I could use her picture for the purposes of a street fashion piece, she said that she preferred to not use the picture with her posing without the sign. However, in all honesty, I was more interested in her cool hair color and her T-shirt. But we wish her luck with her cause and in getting more money to janitorial workers in her University, which is I think one of the goals that I heard being mentioned.

More toward the interior of the campus, we are bumping into more everyday students doing everyday things, such as carrying their cups of iced coffee. This young lady is wearing one of the most popular skirts in Korea this summer season and we had to ask her to pose.

No matter how far we got into the campus, tourists were still legion. These two young ladies were walking through campus and more than happy to have their pictures taken by a street fashion photography crew.If anything, the many tourists both in front of and actually on campus were testament to the power of the so-called “Korean wave” in Asia. Korea, at the very least in Asia, has definitely become a place known for being modern, fashionable, and very cool.

She’s a natural model, like many Korean girls who were trained on a diet of sticker pictures, private photo booths, and cell phone cams. South Korea coined its own word for “selfie” back in around 2004. Young Korean girls our well-trained in the fine art of “selca” (SELf+CAmera) and were uploading their super selfie portraits to eoljjang (best face) sites that became popular around that time as well. The average female Korean college student has about as much de facto amateur modeling experience as the average Western amateur model who has seen the inside of a photo studio.

She's a natural.

We were lucky to meet someone do awesome. Badumbump.

Cool shot of the impromptu Ewha model of the day!

We ended our little foray into the Ewha Woman’s University with a bit more conservative, representative fare for the Koreans students these days. And her heavily-ornamented gladiator sandals are definitely the thing with the kids these days.

As soon as the day ended and I was sitting in my office, as if on cue, our “awesome” model from a few hours earlier sent me a message about her pictures and we quickly decided that it would be cool to do an impromptu studio session since I had my studio equipment sitting in a box in my office ready to go and all you would need to do is find a white wall in a hallway somewhere. Considering what we had to work with, but also the find the picture we came up with but also surprising. but also, considering the natural talent and these which our model possessed, it’s not really any surprise we got what we did. Definitely one of the best street fashion models I’ve ever bump into — and I don’t think it’s any coincidence that she is a true-blue Ewha student.

Our best model wanted to do a bit of studio after her great street shoot. She is indeed awesome.

 

P.S.  Many thanks to my Seoul Fashion Report interns Charlotte Gryson, Yubin Lee, and Junha Kim, without whom I would have had a lot of trouble shooting for this story.

This Is The Kind Of BS That Women In Television Have To Deal With, Part 2

Former CNN anchor Kiran Chetry and PBS’ Judy Woodruff spoke out on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” about the way women in television are scrutinized over their appearance.

The discussion came after recent reports that executives at Britain’s ITV have criticized host Susanna Reid over her dresses, hair and nodding in an attempt to boost ratings. On Sunday, Chetry seemed to be able to relate to the story as she listed some of the feedback she’s received about her looks during her career in television. The former anchor, who previously worked in local news and for Fox News and CNN, said she has been told to:

— buy a wig

— don’t wear bare arms

— don’t wear taupe

— dye your hair blond

— wear shorter skirts

— wear longer skirts

— get Botox

Chetry said that she has “laughed” and taken the advice with a grain of salt over the years, while Woodruff added that getting the news out and focusing on the content of stories should be a journalist’s first priority.

“I think women have to take a deep breath and think, ‘What am I doing here? Am I here to be a reporter, to gather the news, to make sure it gets out and do the best job I can?'” she said. “If that’s what you’re trying to do, that’s what ultimately is going to matter.”

Playboy Will Release A Whole Issue Shot By Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson, the prominent photographer who has been accused of sexual harassment by several models, will shoot an entire issue of Playboy, which is set to come out in early 2015.

Richardson previewed some NSFW images from the issue, titled “California Dreamin,'” on his blog Friday.

A Playboy spokeswoman told Jezebel that “Yes, Terry has shot for the magazine many times over the years, and has been a great partner.” As the website notes, not everyone is so eager to embrace Richardson these days; the shoe company Aldo parted ways with him in June as the chorus of complaints grew louder.

Richardson recently defended himself as part of a feature story in New York Magazine that drew plenty of criticism.

Terry Richardson, the prominent photographer who has been accused of sexual harassment by several models, will shoot an entire issue of Playboy, which is set to come out in early 2015.

Richardson previewed some NSFW images from the issue, titled “California Dreamin,'” on his blog Friday.

A Playboy spokeswoman told Jezebel that “Yes, Terry has shot for the magazine many times over the years, and has been a great partner.” As the website notes, not everyone is so eager to embrace Richardson these days; the shoe company Aldo parted ways with him in June as the chorus of complaints grew louder.

Richardson recently defended himself as part of a feature story in New York Magazine that drew plenty of criticism.

Why Vanessa Williams Never Thought She’d Win Miss America (VIDEO)

Thirty years ago, Vanessa Williams made history as the first African-American woman to be crowned Miss America. In her interview for “Oprah’s Master Class,” Williams says never believed it was really possible for her to win before she actually took the crown.

Williams was a theatre major at Syracuse University and says she had no interest in pageants at first. She blew off the idea until her junior year, when she entered the Ms. Greater Syracuse Pageant – and won. “Then I ended up winning Syracuse, New York and Miss America in September within six months period of time,” Williams says.

During the Miss America 1984 competition, Williams says she took advantage of the talents she already had. “I sang a song that was easy for me,” she says. “I majored in musical theatre, so it wasn’t like I had to come up with an act.”

Though she thought she might place in the top 10, Williams didn’t think it would go further than that. “So I just basically was there to have a good time, I really did not think that I would win because I didn’t think that it was the time,” Williams says. “There had never been a black Miss America, so why would it be this year? If so, possibly I knew that I had what it took, but I didn’t think they’d actually go for it.”

After winning the title, her reign as Miss America was fraught with controversy. Williams opens up about the challenges she faced and the Penthouse scandal that forced her to resign on “Oprah’s Master Class” airing Sunday, July 13 at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.
