Vogue Italia Celebrates Italian Singer Mina with Party at MFW

ITALIAN TRIBUTE: Vogue Italia took over Milan’s Cinema Manzoni on Friday night to pay tribute to legendary Italian musician Mina Mazzini, who is the focus of the magazine’s October issue. The issue features a range of fashion shoots showing famous models, including Gisele Bündchen, Carla Bruni and Mariacarla Boscono, posing as Mina — she dropped her last name as an artist —  in different stages of her life and career and captured by international photographers, such as Luigi & Iango, Giampaolo Sgura and Dario Catellani.
“I don’t know Mina, unfortunately. But I’m excited to learn about her, the pictures are fabulous. The pictures are amazing, they did an amazing tribute,” said Jeremy Scott, who was among the guests at the party, which included a live performance by drag queen Violet Chachki and a gospel choir.
Asked about his favorite Mina song, designer Francesco Scognamiglio mentioned “Ma che m’hai imparato a fa.” “It’s a great Neapolitan song she covered and that our Maestro Gianni Versace used for his Atelier runway show in Paris in 1993 and which has been the most emotional moment of my life,” he said.
Mina is not only a music legend, but she has always been a style icon and a muse for

Hillary Clinton, Yara Shahidi Keynote Teen Vogue Summit in L.A.

“Thanks so much for all of your help,” Hillary Rodham Clinton said backstage at the inaugural Teen Vogue Summit on Saturday morning. As she posed for a photo with a large group of police officers at 72 and Sunny’s Playa Vista campus in Los Angeles, Clinton told the photographer, “This is a very important group. Take a good picture.” The former Secretary of State and presidential candidate had just completed the opening keynote conversation with activist and “Black-ish” actress Yara Shahidi.
While the question-and-answer session lasted 40 minutes, it took less than seven for the discussion to shift toward the previous night’s vote on tax reform. “In the last 24 hours, the Senate passed this absolutely horrible tax-cut plan,” Clinton said, as the crowd booed in support of her sentiment. “It’s great for Donald Trump and his family. It’s great for the billionaires who support him, but it’s going to make life much harder for middle-class families and poor families. It even cuts the tax deduction for teachers who buy supplies for their classrooms and their students.”

“Now it takes care of you if you have a private yacht or a private plane,” she continued, “but heaven forbid if you buy some

The Dubai Design and Fashion Council and Vogue Arabia Award Fashion Prizes

DUBAI — The Dubai Design and Fashion Council and Vogue Arabia awarded three designers from the region the Fashion Prize earlier this week, an annual award going to the top talent from the Middle East. The designers represent three different categories: ready-to-wear, fine jewelry and accessories. The winners were chosen by a panel that included designer Reem Acra, Aquazzura creative director Edgardo Osorio, DDFC chief executive officer Jazia Aldanhani and Vogue Arabia editor in chief Manuel Arnaut.
“It’s wonderful to discover such promising new talent in the region,” said Osorio. Accra, who is on the board of the council, said: “The DDFC Vogue Fashion Prize is so important for the region. It empowers the new generation of designers.”
This year’s winners were:
Faissal El-Malak, Ready-to-Wear
Palestinian designer Faissal El-Malak grew up between Montreal and Qatar and studied in Paris before settling in Dubai. His work is rooted in his search for identity. “Both sides of my family are Palestinian refugees,” he said. “My identity was only based on ideas and memories of my grandparents. I didn’t have anything tangible until I discovered traditionally hand embroidered cushions and dresses that my mother had. That was the first time I had something that related to my identity.”

What’s the Secret to K-Pop Beauty? One Vogue Editor Gets a Hallyu Star Makeover in Seoul

kpop makeover

“Please hold still,” one woman tells me, lifting a still-smoking match to my eyes. Nearby, another begins sharpening a small pink-handled knife that will slice the tops and sides off my brows. To my left, a man with immaculate bleach-blond hair sits, looking bored, listlessly thumbing through his iPhone, as three attendants swab his face with no less than 10 serums, emulsions, and creams. But no matter—he’ll be back here tomorrow to do it all over again.

Welcome to the world of K-pop beauty, where it takes three hours to apply your everyday face. Yes, three hours—or so I’m told when I call up reception at Jennyhouse, which has quickly become the go-to salon for Korean celebs since it opened in 2002. These days, of course, it’s also a destination for fans who would love to look just like their idols—including Chinese couples who fly here to get K-styled for wedding photos. And so, out of curiosity, I, too, book an appointment for a complete Hallyu star makeover on a recent trip to Seoul.

There are now three Jennyhouse locations in Cheongdam, the city’s most rarefied neighborhood, but I head to Olive, a two-story violet town house that’s said to draw the most stars (that’s no lie, by the way—on a recent Friday, I sat next to Jessi, the Lucky J rapper, and VIXX boy-band members Hyuk and Ravi). Though K-pop is known for its wild, over-the-top visuals, makeup artist Hee Jeong Lee tells me that these days her idol clients and their fans are requesting a more pared-down face.

“We used to do a heavier, more made-up aesthetic, but now when people come to our shop and ask for the Korean style, it’s more of a natural look,” she says, pointing to two of her clients, actresses Lee Min-jung and Song Ji-hyo, whose faces are most often requested by guests. Paging through hairstylist Jongsoo Lim’s portfolio, it’s clear that a more laid-back style is also the key to a K-pop mane. “Right now, it’s about a light wave instead of over-the-top glamour,” he says. “Over the past four or five years, we’ve moved toward the kind of look you could do yourself at home.”

So what does it take to get that not-quite-natural look? Anywhere from two to five hours—still. For Hallyu stars, a flawless complexion comes first and foremost. So we begin with a thorough double cleansing with oil and cream face washes, followed by 20 minutes of layering moisturizers: first toner, then essence, then serum, then emulsion, then cream, then more emulsion, and so on, swept and dotted lightly across the face with plush sponges and cotton pads. Vaseline is smothered on my lips, then Lee takes a dollop of heavy sun cream and emulsion, mixed together on the back of the hand with a palette knife, and swabs it directly onto my cheeks. Three dots of highlighter go under each eye, then a base, more emulsion—“It helps create a smooth texture”—and a thick coat of foundation. During 10 minutes of vigorous concealing (of stray spots, freckles, dark circles, and lines I never knew I had), I remember how, the day before, a stranger told me I had great skin—apparently not, by K-pop standards.

The secret here, I learn, is extreme layering: Lashes are curled twice with that smoking match, then topped with individual falsies and curled again with mascara. Light dustings of contour are topped off with emulsion, then dusted a second and third time. The eyeliner alone takes about 15 minutes: pencil, liquid, and gel, painstakingly shaped into an angular black wing. But once I reach Lim’s hair station, things move faster. I spend only 40 minutes in the chair, moving through rapid curling, texturizing at the root with a round brush, and ample sprays of Elnett. Though I’d originally suggested a wild updo or crazy cut, this would, I learn, be antithetical to the idol way. “You want to look fresh and pretty,” Lim chides as he sweeps my hair into a long ponytail with a hint of volume.

After carefully placing and re-placing a single wavy curl that falls by my face, we’re done—et voilà! Though up close I look strange and too heavily made up, in the soft glow of the salon’s incandescent lights, I feel K-pop pretty. Plus, as my own family tells me later that day, “You’ve never looked more Korean.” As far as K-styling goes, I’d call that an unqualified success.

Kanye West, Rihanna & A$AP Rocky Attend Vogue 95th Anniversary Party [Photos]

Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 was lit with who’s who’s yesterday thanks to the Vogue 95th Anniversary Party.

Kanye West was the HNIP as he was surrounded by his family, Kris Jenner and her boyfriend, Corey Gamble and his sister-in-law Kendall Jenner. Also in attendance was Pretty Flaco himself, A$ AP Rocky, Rihanna, The Weeknd’s model girfriend Gigi Hadid, newlywed Bar Refaeli, Oscar winner Jared Leto and the gorgeous Zoë Kravitz.

Emmanuelle Alt, the editor-of-chief of the longstanding publication, is being showered with praise for not throwing a snobbish snooze fest as she reportedly told the famous attendees, “All I wanted to do tonight was have a big party. I’ve been to so many fashion events that were, oh no—so many boring fashion parties. Tonight is about fun, and friends, and dancing.”

You were definitely playing fashion favorites this September: Five of Vogue.com’s most-pinned images this month were from Givenchy’s first-ever New York City show.

Vogue Staffers Share Their Fashion Week Oases

nyc fashion week oasis

Fashion fatigue is no joke during the months of September and early October. Like all seasons past, the Spring 2016 collections come with the promise of a near-delirious crowd of editors, bloggers, buyers, and yes, even the famous front row–ers. It takes a lot to run to and from shows—even if it’s in an Uber—and this is especially true in New York City, where one single Fashion Week venue is a thing of the past. And the real killers of any promise of a full REM sleep cycle are the dinners and late-night parties. Inevitably, showgoers will probably be aching for a little break.

Vogue staffers definitely know a thing or two about kicking off their fur-lined Gucci loafers, throwing down their Loewe Puzzle Bags, and shutting off for a few moments of peace and quiet. They share their favorite New York Fashion Week escapes, from dog runs to local watering holes.

Ode to Babel in Brooklyn is my local spot. It’s the one place I can go for a really nice, quiet drink at the end of the night, when I’m totally exhausted. The wine selection is all local, and the cocktails are heaven, too. Plus I’m obsessed with all the African indigo-dye scarves and homeware they have, so I can get a little retail therapy in at the same time.”
—Chioma Nnadi, Vogue.com Fashion News Director

“It’s essential to my mental and physical well-being to have a positive outlet for the stress that inevitably accumulates with fashion month’s accelerated pace. I’ve figured out that so long as I get up early enough, I can respond to any pressing news and still sneak in an hour-long workout at The Class with Taryn Toomey or hit the tennis court. After that, I’m positively serene (and fully awake) backstage at shows. An extra hour of sleep can’t give that kind of leg up.”

“Near the end of the past three NYFWs, I’ve gone to dinner alone (and turned my phone off) up at Bistro Chat Noir on 66th between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Final glass(es) of rosé of the summer, quiet atmosphere, good food, essentially anti-scene: perfection.”

“If I have time in the day, I’ll jump on my bike and go for a 10-mile ride around Prospect Park to clear my mind. But when I don’t get home until past midnight, my courtyard is the best place to be. While the iron chairs are admittedly a little uncomfortable, the sounds of the fountain are soothing, and it doesn’t hurt to have a drink in hand.”
—Christina Liao, Vogue.com Senior Producer

“There’s this romantic little nook in the Highline Hotel that is my favorite find. It’s to the right of the café, down a hallway, and consists of nothing more than a little settee and a window. Perfect for catching up on emails or taking a coffee in peace. The one time I discovered it was already occupied by another patron was a really sad day.”

The Top 12 Vogue Pins of the Month: Beyoncé, Zendaya, and More

Vogue's top pins of the month

Beyoncé, Vogue’s September cover girl, is not only one of the most photogenic women in the world, she’s also imminently pinnable. Queen B, photographed by Mario Testino, appears twice on our top pins of the month list; as does another singing sensation, Selena Gomez, whose make-under was a knockout. You approved of Amal Clooney’s casual knits and how grown-up and glam Zendaya looked in one of this summer’s most popular combo: the crop top and culotte. New to the market, and your boards, was Melissa McCarthy’s recently launched fashion line.

Based on the stats, we’re guessing that a lot of hair stylists will be shown the hot honey brown hair color favored by Scandinavian models this fall. On the the home front, interior designer specialists McGrath II had you rethinking home essentials, while the recipe for handmade Mango Coconut pops from L.A. hotspot Squirl was also a hit. And as bikini season draws to a close, Karlie Kloss’s Flat Abs workout for fitness fanatics and overindulgers racked up a sizable number of pins too.

Vogue Editors Pick the Boyfriend Jeans They’d Most Like to Borrow

editors pick boyfreind jeans

The continued prevalence of menswear-inspired womenswear means now is the time to take things one step further with pieces literally borrowed from the boys—in fact, straight from their closets. This is nothing new when it comes to occasionally nicking an oversize button-down or pair of boxers from the man in your life, but denim? That’s a bit trickier, and for many, entirely uncharted territory. Modern-day boyfriend jeans, while indisputably stylish, can feel one-dimensional, with most pairs offering the same effect: a roomy silhouette that’s a touch masculine, a touch undone—but a bit familiar.

In search of a pair that feels fresh for fall, we asked a smattering of Vogue editors which boyfriend jeans throughout history they’d most like to borrow. Patchwork jeans, flared silhouettes, washes from white to deep indigo, and distressed, paint-splattered denim all made the list, as well as classic variations found on the usual suspects. From Jimi Hendrix’s famous snake-hipped flares to Martin Sheen’s fitted straight-leg jeans in Badlands or the modern-day distressed white jeans worn by Kanye West, it seems, when it comes to boyfriend jeans the options are endless—we just need to look in the right, unexpected places.

What Vogue Editors Are Coveting from the End-of-Summer Sales

MSDCLUE EC002

The end-of-summer sales tend to create a catch-22 scenario for even the most seasoned of shoppers. It is all too easy to throw caution to the wind in the face of racks upon racks (or, pages upon pages, if online shopping is your thing) of clearance items and not let record-low sale prices pass you by. Yet with the influx of fall fashion just around the corner, the challenge of delaying gratification seems an equally worthy undertaking. When it comes to confidently navigating end-of-summer markdowns, whose lead better to follow than that of Vogue editors?

It seems the key to it all is keeping your cool without engaging in total self-abnegation—close out the summer season by investing in high-style steals that prove discount indulgences needn’t be impulsive. Here, from a Dolce & Gabbana bikini to Prada pumps, see the sale pieces we scored.

 Kardashian took to Instagram to share the news, revealing that the entire shoot was done without makeup. “I can’t wait for you to see it!” she captioned the photo.

Palais Galliera, Vogue Paris Set Second Gala

MUSEUM QUALITY: How’s this for a shopping list: Seven rare Madame Grès couture dresses, one Paco Rabanne, eight Martine Sitbon pieces, photo prints by Deborah Turbeville, drawings by the fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez, for a total of 36 pieces.
Curator Olivier Saillard was able to make those purchases for the fashion museum at the Palais Galliera, where he is director, with the support of the Vogue Paris Foundation, a fund established last year by the French magazine with an annual grant of 100,000 euros, or $ 111,063 at current exchange.
Saillard and Emmanuelle Alt, editor in chief of Vogue Paris, raised around 200,000 euros, or $ 222,126, with the foundation’s second edition of the gala scheduled for Monday in the neo-Renaissance palace’s striking peristyle.
Saillard said the museum’s affiliation with the fashion magazine has opened the door to a windfall of donations coinciding with the gala — 36 pieces from houses such as Chanel, Celine, Hermès, Chloé, Fendi, Versace and Givenchy.
“The concept remains the same; houses come; buy tables,” Alt said. “It is important to support French fashion and couture. It’s really about the heritage and to celebrate Paris.”
Alt noted that the magazine has no say in the museum’s acquisition policy, but it is fully

Cara Delevingne’s Vogue Cover Story Incites Backlash from LGBT Community

Dear Vogue, Cara Delevingne’s Bisexuality Is Not A ‘Phase’

Vogue is being criticized — and rightly so — for the way bisexuality was framed in a July cover story about Cara Delevingne.

Rob Haskell’s interview with Delevingne delved into the model and actress’ romantic relationships with both men and women — specifically her current relationship with singer Annie Clark, a.k.a. St. Vincent. “I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days,” Delevingne told Haskell. “And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”

She also opened up about being confused by her sexuality as a child “until [she] first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that [she] had to accept it.” The model told Haskell that while “women are what completely inspire” her, it’s men who she tends to have sexy dreams about. Delevingne’s comments come off as open and honest, painting a complicated picture of sexuality that feels authentic. After all, sexuality can be a messy, confusing thing and it’s refreshing to hear public figures acknowledge that.

Instead of applauding Delevingne’s honesty, Haskell surmised that, “Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct.”

He also tied her checkered relationship with her mother to her attraction to women, and later offers her unsolicited (and deeply condescending) advice: “When I suggest to Cara that to trust a man, she might have to revise an old and stubborn idea of hers — that women are perennially troubled and therefore only women will accept her — her smile says she concedes the point.”

“I’d wager that her smile more likely meant, ‘You’re a homophobic moron. F**k off,'” wrote Cosmopolitan.com’s Lane Moore. We’d have to agree.

In the wake of the tone-deaf piece, Julie Rodriguez launched a Care2 petition which currently has over 13,200 signatures, telling Vogue that “Being LGBT Isn’t A ‘Phase!'” Rodriguez writes:

The idea that queer women only form relationships with other women as a result of childhood trauma is a harmful (and false) stereotype that lesbian and bisexual women have been combating for decades…As a bisexual woman myself, I’ve experienced hurtful comments like this many times. People are quick to assume queer women’s identities are a “phase” and to refuse to recognize the important relationships in their lives — an attitude which can cause depression, result in families rejecting their daughters (or forcing them into abusive conversion “therapy”), and even put young women at risk of suicide. Vogue should have taken this opportunity to combat negative stereotypes, not reinforce them.

The idea that bisexuality is just a “phase” one goes through — either on the way to being gay, or as a rebellious period before settling down into a heterosexual relationship — is a misconception that many bisexual people feel acutely in their daily lives. We asked our female readers who identify as bisexual to weigh in on Haskell’s comments, and they echoed deep frustration because their sexual identity is often not taken seriously.

“With bisexual women in particular, the orientation is fetishized and treated as a joke,” wrote Emily Clemons. “Bisexual women are treated as if their sexuality fits more into the subplot of a summer flick or a porno, a tool of heterosexual men to become aroused… As a bisexual woman, I crave positive representations of bisexuals in the media because we are struggling for acceptance in both the gay and straight communities.”

Bisexual women don’t need the Vogues of the world doing more to marginalize and delegitimize their identities. Attraction and sexuality are complicated, and it is imperative that people who write about these subjects be responsible to the communities they are covering.

So here’s some free advice for Haskell and anyone else writing words about a group he or she is not a part of: Before you dismiss an entire sexual identity as a “phase,” pause for a minute, look at your keyboard, and then hit the delete button.

How One Vogue Editor Found the Secret to Summer Tie-Dye in Her Fridge

Tie Dye

If you’ve secretly always fancied yourself as a bit of an urban hippie—the kind that likes to brew kombucha on her fire escape, say—then the idea of tie-dying summer whites using the contents of your fridge is pretty irresistible. It certainly was to me: When I heard that designer Kalen Kaminski was holding a master class in tie-dying using all-natural dyes, a rainbow of vegetable-colored whirlpools immediately flashed before my eyes.

“Well actually that one is technically beetle juice,” says Kaminki, as I peer into a glass topped with what looks like rosé. “It’s made with a species that’s indigenous to cactus in the Southwest.” There’s an alchemist’s array of jars filled with colorful liquid in the backyard of Jill Lindseys store in Brooklyn where Kaminski is teaching her new students. If you’ve ever came across Upstate, the line Kaminski creates, then you’ll know that she has the art of shibori, an ancient Japanese dyeing craft, down to a science; her latest collection of gorgeous silk tea dresses, kimonos, and tailored shirts come without a whiff of a festival burnout cliché.

“I remember when I was dyeing things in my bathtub, now my collection is produced at a dye house in L.A. for the most part,” she says dipping one of her signature boxy tees into a golden turmeric infusion. “So this is a fun side project.” Her techniques are a lot more intricate than the rubber-banding skills I picked up in kindergarten—and come with far more sophisticated names. I try my hand at what is known as itajime, a dye method that involves folding fabric in a series of triangular pleats with wooden pegs that leave a mosaic-like geometric pattern in their wake.

After several failed attempts with a peasant blouse and bowl of red cabbage–infused dye, I have better luck with the arashi technique, a type of tie-dye that is altogether less precise: The signature “stormy” motif is achieved by wrapping and bunching fabric around a plastic tube in a tight wormlike formation, and securing each end with metal pegs. And when I unravel the tightly bound band tee that’s been dipped in almost every pot of dye on the table, the result is an explosive kaleidoscope of color.

“The colors you can make with natural dyes are like no other,” says Kaminski, nodding approvingly at my latest attempt. “I can mix procion colors for days, but I still won’t achieve those hues.” Plus all it takes to make the color of these natural concoctions take is salt and white vinegar; Kaminski recommends you leave freshly dyed pieces to sit for 24 to 48 hours and hand-wash with a very gentle detergent, like Mrs. Meyer’s. As far as finding new and interesting color agents goes, though, you needn’t add anything new to your shopping list: discarded avocado pits, for example, will soak down to a nice shade of dusky pink. “Forget your summer juice cleanse,” says Kaminski jokingly as I hang up my new pieces to dry. “You can just drink the dye when you’re done.”

Is It Time to Drop the Flip-Flop? A Vogue Writer Takes a Stance

for and against flip flops

Believe it or not, Vogue is more likely to be a place to tell you that you can wear something rather than not, ergo, one need not stick to heels on the red carpet even on the most prohibitive red carpets, outdated in their dress codes. When one of us comes out against something, we do so with fervor and with very good reason—the faux–Native American headdress remains the ultimate No in our book.

And now, for reasons not exactly political, but ergonomic, hygienic, environmental, aesthetic, and on, and on, I submit to that list of Don’ts: the flip-flop.

In other realms of the world I am radically minded, but admittedly in matters of shoes, I draw a few lines. I have never been a wearer of a Birk, as so many of you out there are, or a Teva, or even a pool slide—but I’ll give you all those in their classic and Fausto Puglisi or Céline-ified iterations; in fact, plenty of you wear them quite nicely, thank you very much. Feel free to go ahead and laboriously lace up your gladiators and slip-and-slide on your mules all you like. Men, a mandal, only if you must, though know I will judge you harshly for it—and let the record, by the way, show that my hate does not discriminate. My exclusion of the flip-flop is gender-inclusive and unrelenting. Take them to the beach, take them to the pool, but apart from that, take them off! When it comes to shoes in summertime, I am all about a sandal, high or low; a slip-on, a loafer, an oxford, a clog, a high-top Chuck, a high heel slung over a bicycle pedal, a boot; even a boat shoe. There is room in my shoe closet for many, many things, and not a single one of them is a flip-flop.

Around for eons (an early version makes an appearance on the walls of Egyptian tombs) and since in wood, rice paper, papyrus, foam, rubber, dollar-store, and designer iterations alike, the flip-flop is quite used to being dogged: It’s the perennial haters-gonna-hate-us shoe, historically loathed for its flimsy construction, its unattractive thong design, its noisy flapping, its inherent filthiness (the telltale black footprint it transfers to its wearer, the residue it traps—e.g., the flip collected by all that flop), and one would have to admire its refusal to disappear, its resilience in the face of all that dislike . . . that is, if it didn’t simply fall apart ALL THE TIME. Defend the flip-flop? What, apart from briefly shielding me from the scald of a blazing hot beach for about half a minute, has it ever done to defend me?

Oh, you say. But flip-flops are “in.” Flip-flops are “back.” Flip-flops are “chic.” (No, you didn’t really say that, did you?) Flip-flops are flapping down the runway. Well, yes, we did just see them at Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior’s resort shows, didn’t we? For one thing, because Nicolas Ghesquières Palm Springs runway was set in Bob Hope’s backyard . . . BY A POOL. And because Raf Simons staged his show in the fabulously modern bubble house belonging to Pierre Cardin: If you live in a place that fabulous, you can wear pretty much whatever you want—after all, you’re never going to want to leave it anyway.

But step out of the house, off the beach, away from the pool, and onto the street in a flip-flop, and you, my friend, are dancing with danger (as much as one can dance in a flip-flop that is). For the flip-flop is a born liar; it is the shoe equivalent of an umbrella, masquerading as protection, yet plotting the moment to self-destruct, fall apart, and savagely let you down, just when you need it the most.

I’m thinking, of course, of the legendary Wasted Guy at Coachella, whose heroic, Sisyphean struggle to regain his shoes and his dignity, will go down in the annals of YouTube history, just as he went down, again and again, felled by not only his own personal excesses but his abysmal choice in footwear. Did no one love Wasted Coachella Guy enough to steer him to a proper shoe? And, once he finally regained a shred of composure and his shred of a shoe, was it all really worth it?

Laugh at Wasted Coachella Guy, and you are also laughing at yourself: whether you are an innocent shirtless dadbod tourist, shepherding your family around to the sights and collecting souvenirs of the city’s grime in your pain-addled wake; whether you are a Madison Avenue beacon of professional chic, all modern-day leaning-in boss and Mad Men polish from head to . . . oh, no; whether you are downtown cool, spraining your poor unsupported ankles on the cobblestones of SoHo or risking them to the germy dark of an after-hours club floor. There is no power or grace in a flip-flop, no elegance, no toughness. As for its supposed ease, well, will someone please tell me exactly what is so great about wearing a shoe in which you can neither run nor hide?

Let me transport you to a moment in Austin, Texas, when a boyfriend and I blithely followed an overly confident friend to a secret swimming hole he swore he knew of in the woods, one so secret, in fact, that afterward the dodgy path we’d taken had all but vanished. It was late afternoon, the sunlight through the trees above rapidly dimming, and we traced it to the nearest clearing—a very long way, it turned out, from where we’d left the car. What was another couple miles, we thought, once we reached the roadside? It was a beautiful day for a walk, even one along the highway at sundown. And then, without warning, issuing forth from the shoes I’d idiotically worn for the occasion, came the all too familiar separation of thong from sole—my flip had flopped.

Later I would recount the story of how I had then trudged the last two miles on the asphalt like an ill-prepared pilgrim; back home, I plunged my dirty feet in a tub and remains of my shoes in the trash—those would, I swore, be the last pair of flip-flops ever to touch my toes. Little did I know how lucky I was to end up barefoot: Later that summer, my buddy Nick arrived on what would become his band’s famous “cane tour,” in which he spent leaning on the classic old-man wooden hook he’d adopted in one hand and gripping the mic with the other. Back home, an innocent dash through the rain toward a waiting car had turned to peril when his flip-flops slid out from beneath him on the wet pavement, he went for a spill, fracturing a toe in the process. At least, he says now, “I got out of a lot of loading in and out on that tour, so there’s a bright side, I guess!” Plus, a cane makes a pretty sweet dance prop.

It’s not just short-term fractures that this shoe can instigate, though the U.K. reports some 200,000 flip-flop-related injuries a year. Whether environmentally wasteful, practically disposable slabs of foam or “better” versions such as the FitFlop, the design still requires the wearer to grip with the toe, shortening your stride, sending your ankles rolling inward, and triggering long-term damage in the bones of the feet, the muscles of your legs, pain in your back. And really, if you’re going to risk your health on a shoe, don’t you at least want it to be on one that is actually a little bit attractive, or at the very least a little bit cooler than a slip of lousy rubber?

And so, I speak to you as the friend that Wasted Coachella Guy clearly did not have on that fateful festival afternoon. I speak to you as someone who has been there, who walked down those lonely streets, flipping along to myself; as someone who has flopped and landed, on her own bare feet, never to make those same mistakes again. Join me, friends, and move on.

And now for the other side of the story: how one writer fell in love with the flip-flop.

‘Love Yourself’: Agender Person Goes From Being Bullied in the Newark Projects to Gracing the Cover of French Vogue (VIDEO)

I’m From Driftwood is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit archive for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer stories. New stories are posted on the site every Wednesday.

Author’s note: When asked which pronouns Andre prefers, they responded, “You can refer to me however you’d like. I don’t want that stuff to get in the way of the message.” I chose to use the pronouns “they,” “their,” and “theirs” when referring to Andre.

2015-05-08-1431119520-6358299-AndreJ.jpg

“Love yourself.” It seems like a simple-enough mantra, but for Andre J. it took a lot of learning experiences to understand its true power. After being bullied while growing up in the projects in Newark, Andre moved to Los Angeles to focus on their art. Andre’s unique look and style gained a lot of attention and admiration, earning three appearances on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Being Bobby Brown with Whitney Houston. Andre recalls an epiphany:

I was like, “Oh, my goodness! All of the things that people teased me about or called me names about, or those things that were supposed to be my flaws, were really my strengths!”

Despite the great experience in Los Angeles, Andre decided to move back to New York City. On the flight back, Andre saw a documentary on two-spirits:

[W]hen I saw that, I was like, “Oh, my goodness, so this is not just about ‘gay’ or ‘straight.’ This is really about the spirit of people; this is about the way people feel about themselves.” So when I returned back to New York City, it was just like I had this new idea of life, this new energy, this spice. I decide I’m going to wear a wig and women’s clothes and heels and dresses. When I was doing this in 2005, no one looked like what I was doing.

Now that Andre had finally become closer to who they really are, people began to notice. Andre was booked to be photographed by world-renowned photographer Bruce Weber and ended up being the first male-assigned African-American person to grace the cover of French Vogue. Andre explains what’s so special about finally being oneself:

I think the overall vision of what it is that you see comes from the depth of me loving myself. It’s not just about the exterior. The exterior is what it is because the interior actually is in alignment with it. I love myself.

15 Vogue Editors on the No-Makeup Makeup Products That Transform Their Looks

Lara Stone by David Sims

Last night’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer involved one especially memorable skit. In “Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup,” members of a fictional boy band sing to Schumer, pleading with her to wipe her lipstick, blush, and mascara off, then, once her bare face is revealed, emphatically requesting that she reapply it. As much as the comedienne is making fun of most men’s misunderstanding of how much effort goes into looking like you #wokeuplikethis, she also makes a good point about the state of the makeup market. We’re lucky enough to live in a time when concealer, contouring powders, and BB creams are so effective at enhancing our natural states, it looks like we’re wearing nothing but the skin we were born with.

Around the Vogue offices, a well executed no-makeup makeup look is par for the course. We trade tips on the creamiest tinted moisturizers or life-like bronzers with the same fervor as we would the right contact for getting a last-minute reservation at the Polo Bar. In that spirit, we asked a few editors to share their most instant and stealth complexion-saving products. Stock up.

Meet Gunilla Lindblad, the Swedish Model Who Defined the Haute Hippie Look in ’70s Vogue

Gunilla Lindblad

It’s safe to say that Gunilla Lindblad, a flaxen-haired Swedish model who arrived in Paris in 1968, never imagined that she would be cast as the ultimate haute hippie in Vogue. Yet in the early seventies, Gunilla, posing for her husband photographer Jean Pierre Zachariasen in free-spirited fashions, created incredible images that captured the spirit of the times and showed how the grass-roots boho style could be achieved by women who liked the look but didn’t necessarily want the lifestyle. (There were only so many Rolling Stones to go around, after all.)

With festival season just getting warm, and the seventies back in fashion, bohomania shows no signs of slowing down. And while Kate Moss and Florence Welch might be the current standard-bearers of the look, its roots stretch way back to the late sixties and early seventies; and as far as the Vogue archives go, that road almost always leads back to Gunilla. So we reached out to this four-time cover girl, and asked her to share her story.

On Meeting Mrs. Vreeland
As Lindblad remembers it, Diana Vreeland was seated at her desk in in the Graybar Building when Sarah Slavin ushered her into the editor’s red-walled office. The raven-haired Vreeland, recalls Lindblad (then newly arrived in New York from Paris), “stood up, and she came towards me, and she took me in her arms, and she said: ‘I could eat you!’ I said: ‘Oh, thank you very much.’ I didn’t know what to say.”

Three days later, Gunilla and her husband, J. P. Zachariasen—who had initially resisted showing his portfolio to Vreeland—were booked for 20 pages in the magazine. It was the kick-off of a two-year journey that would result in images that defined the haute hippie look.

Coup de Foudre
Lindblad and Zachariasen’s story began two years earlier, in April 1968 in the South of France. The Swede from Malmö first laid eyes on the Parisian journalist, on hand to help drive and model as a favor to a friend, in the airport in Marseille, after which they never parted.

The Vogue Years
Their first Vogue story, on fake furs—worn shaggy and with scarf-wrapped heads—was shot in Central Park (call time 5:00 a.m.) and was followed by a trip to OMS Ontario Motor Speedway in California where Gunilla posed with the rugged actor Pete Duel, race-car driver John Guedel, and, as Lindblad remembers it, a rather recalcitrant Michael Douglas. And then it was on to Fiji in a 707 that was empty from Hawaii to the newly independent country.

“The editor was Babs Simpson and me, no hairdresser, no makeup person, no assistant,” Gunilla says. “It was the three of us. So Diana Vreeland told me, she said: ‘Gunilla, I want you to do your own makeup every day. It has to match the dresses, so if you wear purple you have to put purple makeup. I want you to wash your hair every day so it’s totally clean.’” (This was haute hippie fashion, after all—no sweaty, slept-in locks allowed.) Simpson, an avid bird-watcher, left much of the styling to the smiling Gunilla who modeled “sixteen pages of marvelous and unexorbitant clothes for suntime.” Many of these were in dramatic cotton prints, cut to keep the midriff bare, and accessorized with head scarfs, fringed belts, gladiator sandals, and broad-rimmed hats—bohemian staples then and now.

On Working with Helmut Newton
The Zachariasens’ photographic partnership in Vogue was brief, if memorable, but their love affair with each other, and with fashion, didn’t end there. A year after the Fiji shoot, Gunilla (a four-time Vogue cover girl) was shot by Helmut Newton, in a very different guise. (“Gunilla was one of Helmut’s favorite models—he had this thing about tall blondes,” one-time Vogue editor Mary Russell has said.) Fashion was changing, and Gunilla was cast as a polished bourgeoise (a bit like Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour: proper icy exterior, but with strong sexual undercurrents). “He was so innovative,” Gunilla says of Newton. “[At the time] everything had to be so styled, [but] he liked to shoot the electric outlet in the background, for example. At the same time he wanted the girls to have perfect red nails—always we had to have red nails—and the hair. For a long time he wanted me to curl it and to have very full volume. They built it up in the back with stiff paper.”

On Opening Paris’s First Concept Boutique
In the mid-seventies, Zachariasen, who by this point had put down his camera, in partnership with Gunilla, his brother Olivier, and a stylist named Catherine Barade, opened a bazaar in Les Halles, “the stomach of Paris,” Zachariasen says. They called it Upla, removing just one P from the existing storefront, originally home to the Union of Milk and Poultry Products (Union des produits laitiers et Avicoles). “The idea was a little bit like an old-fashioned general store in the western part of the United States,” says Zachariasen, who had the idea of importing American workwear to Paris after becoming “fascinated with the way the construction workers were dressed,” in New York.

“It’s a little bit like what Colette is today,” Gunilla explains. The first to carry Kiehl’s, they also sold products from Santa Maria Novella, Belgian shoes, bikes from Holland, furniture, and designs by designers including two then-unknowns, Claude Montana and Azzedine Alaïa. They made a smash with their own label bags, hunting style but done in bright hues, and Smith’s painter’s pants (a so-called “anti-jean”), which they ordered in colors and imported from jobbers Zachariasen tracked down in Freeport, Long Island. “They thought I was totally crazy,” the Parisian says, but then Caroline of Monaco bought the jeans and they became very fashionable indeed. “It was the seventies,” Zachariasen says by way of explanation and “it was pretty spontaneous.” ​

On Real Seventies Style
Spontaneous, also, were the shows Kenzo Takada put on. The Paris-based Japanese designer was, Gunilla says, “one of the hottest designers at the time, for models. Everybody was dressed in Kenzo because he was really the one who started all the catwalks. Before, all the fashion designers’ [shows] were very structured—you were wearing a number . . . The pret-a-porter had not really started. It was really Kenzo who was leading the way—and Yves Saint Laurent also (I remember buying a lot of pants at Saint Laurent)—but Kenzo was the young one. What he did, he booked all the top models, who were photographed in the magazines, so it was fabulous doing his shows, and very often he gave you clothes or you were paid in clothes; it was a lot of fun. The show was always like two hours late, always on a Monday evening at seven o’clock. Nobody had eaten and they would give us cheap champagne . . . once I dropped a skirt and I didn’t even know! (It was in silk, he had all these layers of silk skirts, one on top of the other.) Karl Lagerfeld was there, watching. Saint Laurent was there. It was the show to see.”

The Updo That Goes from Black Tie to Brunch: One Vogue Editor Test-Drives Chanel’s Runway Hair

chanel-chignon

 

When it comes to black-tie events, we “wash and go” types are acutely aware of the problems poised by the need for an evening coiffure. I tend toward an I-hope-intentionally-looking rumpled, long, easy mane, or coil the whole mess into a tight knot that I like to imagine passes for strict and sophisticated (I am of the age where I have come to realize that my face benefits from my hair being out of its way). This is who I am! I think, I do not require a hair dryer! Or a pin! Or even a brush, for that matter; any sort of measure beyond the odd elastic! And then, of course, I saw the Chanel fall 2015 collection last month in Paris.

The messy chignons on the runway (hat tip to backstage whiz Sam McKnight) were sultry, they were subtle, they were unfussy and up; it was enough to make me rethink my entire approach to life, or at least my approach to event dressing. My desire to attempt it was immediate—and thank heaven for the very patient New York–based hairstylist Cameron Rains, who worked with McKnight backstage at said Chanel show and instantly got what I was after when he arrived at my Tribeca apartment to help me get ready for Friday night’s Save Venice gala.

“It’s super easy and very sexy,” he said, brushing and spraying (Bumble and Bumble, natch) and pinning my strands into a perfectly imperfect modern coif. The black ribbon he fixed around the nape of my neck as a makeshift headband was the insouciant icing on the cake (though Rains noted it renders a much more graphic effect on a blonde; rejoice, ye towheads). Even better? The look seamlessly went from topping a new Michael Kors frock for black tie uptown that night to a vintage denim-clad downtown brunch (next-day hair: very rock ’n’ roll) the following morning in the blink of an eye. Just sleep on it, fix your ribbon, and go.

10 Vogue Editors Share Their Favorite Drugstore Beauty Products of All Time

Beauty Products Steven Meisel

There’s something so comforting about dropping into the corner drugstore. Perhaps it’s the consistency—same fluorescent lighting, same (different, but same) pop song playing, same row overstocked with candy and plush toys to mark whatever holiday is coming up or has just passed—and of course, all the cult beauty products that keep us returning time and again. For many of us, the drugstore is the first place we purchased makeup, nail polish, or face cream for ourselves, or thought about what we wanted to look like as the adults we are now. But drugstore poetics aside, the stuff we buy here often falls into the category of “products we can’t live without.” And though it’s hard to break your routine and try something new from the packed shelves, one could argue that a tip on what’s great (and affordable!) is the best kind of beauty advice there is. So, we asked ten Vogue editors to reveal their go-to products—and here are their picks.

Skin Laundry Lands in NYC: One Vogue Editor Test Drives the 10-Minute Laser Facial

Irving Penn Laser Facial

When I first heard about Skin Laundry, the recently opened New York City treatment center devoted exclusively to ten-minute laser facials, I immediately made an appointment. After debuting in Los Angeles last year, it quickly became a cult sensation. The premise is simple: In less time than it takes to get crosstown in a cab, the high-tech skin service claims to to remove your blackheads, shrink your pores, and reduce blotchiness without any recovery time.

At the moment, my biggest beauty pet peeve is my pores. Over the past few years I’ve seen them, well, grow, which has also resulted in a lot of blackheads. As a result, I’m always on a hunt for the latest pore strip or clay mask to clean and shrink them—anything to keep them in check. So at 8:30 a.m. on a Monday morning, I went to see if Skin Laundry could provide the aforementioned quick fix.

The company’s Flatiron location looks like a very clinical beach house, which makes sense given its California roots. When I arrived, I had to answer a series of questions regarding my medical history before meeting the physician’s assistant and registered nurse who would administer the treatment. Had I undergone any past surgeries, for example? Yes. Any scars on my face? One—a small mark near my lower lip that I’ve had since I was five. Everything was noted in my file for consideration—and they were definitely paying attention.

Finally, it was time to get started. First, a tech washed my face with the in-house cleanser (but left my eye makeup on!) and covered my lids with a pair of those funny, plastic goggles people wear in tanning beds. The first part of the treatment involves running a Yag laser over the skin—but although I had totally psyched myself out about the potential pain factor, it just felt like a series of tiny pinpricks. There was also a funny burning smell, which, the tech mentioned offhandedly, was the smell of my blackheads and dirty pores being vaporized by the laser energy. It’s totally worth mentioning that the dirtier your pores are, the more you will feel the zap of the device, but it doesn’t actually hurt.

Next, the skin is treated with IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, which I now know is a really bright red flashing light you can see through your closed eyes and your plastic tanning bed goggles, and is used to help even the skin tone and kill acne-causing bacteria. The whole procedure is then repeated a second time. And that’s it! At the end, you are handed a mirror to see your results.

Immediately post-treatment my skin was slightly red, but that flushing was gone by the time I walked out the door five minutes later. It seemed that my pores really were smaller and cleaner, even if the effect was subtle. There was no downtime afterward, although my technician cautioned that I might experience some photosensitivity and applied their in-house brand of sunscreen just in case.

In the days that followed, I actually saw a slight increase in breakouts, which, the company explained, was the effect of the skin purging any buildup. The ten-minute treatment is gentle enough to do every other day and, with repeated visits, there are also longer-term benefits. You may see changes in the size of your pores, redness, acne scarring, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation over time.

It is worth noting that the treatment is not for everyone, including (and most notably) those who are pregnant, use prescription face treatments such as Accutane or Retin-A, or who have darker skin tones (due to an increased risk of hyperpigmentation).

I, for one, have already booked my next five appointments.

Chrissy Teigen Came to Visit Vogue and Now We All Want Her Outfit

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen may have had her famously romantic crooner husband, John Legend, in tow when she stopped by the Vogue offices last week, but it was her luxurious, down-to-earth combination of a cashmere sweater, denim flares, and suede heels that we immediately began lusting after.

Here, see the best denim, suede, and cashmere pairings to carry you through this season and well into the next with all the comfort and polish required.

Kendall Jenner And Justin Bieber Are In Hollywood’s New Brat Pack, According To Vogue

If you ask Google who the members of the Brat Pack are, the search engine will tell you in approximately 0.00000001 seconds that they are Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy — actors who all rose to fame in the 1980s. But if you ask Vogue who the Brat Pack is, they list Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Ansel Elgort and Dylan and Hopper Penn.

In a recent photo shoot for the magazine, Vogue crowned the group of young models, actors and reality stars the “new Brat pack,” aka “Instagram aristocracy.” Naturally, the group happily reposted photos from the Vogue spread on their Instagram accounts:

Serena Williams Covers Vogue (Again) And We Couldn’t Be Happier

Just when we thought we couldn’t love Vogue anymore, they go and put Serena Williams on their cover for the second time.

The athlete is on the April issue, which was shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz. In the image, we see Williams in a navy blue Rag & Bone sheath dress, natural makeup and, of course, her gorgeous curly hair.

The full article, which appears on Vogue.com, talks about Williams’ friendship with tennis champion (and competitor) Caroline Wozniacki, her plans to expand her interest in fashion beyond her current clothing line on the Home Shopping Network and how she used to hate her toned arms.

11 Vogue Editors Name Their Favorite Juices for Every Ailment: From Post-Workout Replenishment to Immunity Boosters

Gisele Bundchen's daughter drinking green juice

Perhaps due to the change in season, the end of fashion month, or the stoic persistence of cold and flu season, there seem to be more juice bottles and smoothies in hand at the Vogue.com office than ever before. A quick survey of those touting the liquid elixirs proved that a tailor-made recipe exists for just about every ailment. From complexion brighteners to post-workout replenishment and immunity boosters, here’s a look at what we’re drinking now.



Juice Generation juices

The Supercharged Immune Boost

 

“Cold Warrior from Juice Generation is really the most delicious, comforting drink. It’s my version of chicken soup whenever I’m sick.”
Chloe Malle, Vogue Social Editor

“I drink Melvin’s Juice Box Catch a Fire because it’s essentially so hot (for me, at least) that there’s no way any sore throat illness can sustain life within you after you drink it.”
Sara Jendusa, Vogue.com Art Producer

 



Luli juices

The Pre-Workout Prep

 

Luli Tonix Chia Joe is a cold-brew coffee with black chia seeds and cashew milk, among other things. It’s delicious and around half a bottle gives me the right amount of energy to take on a good ol’ 6:30 a.m. SLT class.”
Alessandra Codinha, Vogue.com Fashion News Editor

Pressed Juicery’s Vanilla Almond acts as a great pre-workout breakfast. It has a decent amount of protein and it tastes like a refined version of a vanilla milkshake.”

The Post-Workout Tonic

 

“When water just doesn’t quite satisfy after a workout, WTRMLN WTR’s Watermelon Juice provides a sweet and refreshing boost.”
Christina Liao, Vogue.com Senior Producer

“The Goji Green Tea from Juice Hugger is a good wake-me-up elixir after a power yoga session, and picks up my energy levels right about that time when all I want to do is curl up and take a nap in savasana.
Chioma Nnadi, Vogue.com Fashion News Director

 



Juice Press juices

The Antidote to Last Night’s Hangover

Fernando Dias De Souza, Vogue.com Art Director

“I get the Hangover Cure from Liquiteria delivered for obvious reasons, along with an Acai bowl, which I eat in bed.”
Anny Choi, Vogue.com Assistant Market Editor

 



Liquiteria juices

The Morning-Sickness Remedy

 

“Ever since I became pregnant I’ve been craving citrus like crazy. One of my favorite juices for the past couple of months has been Liquiteria’s Royal Flush which is not only delicious but it also has great health benefits. There’s pineapple, with its anti-inflammatory properties and Vitamin C; ginger to help soothe upset stomachs and nausea (hello morning sickness); and apples which provide fiber and just the right amount of sweetness.”
Patricia Garcia, Vogue.com Associate Culture Editor

The Skin-Brightening Fix

 

“The Fountain of Youth at Juice Press is the perfect skin pick-me-up. It’s packed with wrinkle-fighting antioxidants and coconut water for hydration.”
Jenna Rennert, Vogue.com Beauty Assistant

“I’m deathly allergic to carrots, so I miss out on all of the skin-brightening antioxidant-heavy juices that contain them. Tiny Empire was kind enough to make me a custom blend of goji berries, banana, almond butter, coconut meat, vanilla, and almond milk (which they called the Mackenzie Smoothie, no less) that is filled with vitamins, minerals, and, of course antioxidants, and just makes me feel like I see clearer and look more awake.”

What It’s Like Being on Set for a Vogue Cover Shoot

2015-03-16-1426520353-2509315-margot1.gif

-Excerpt from www.CityLately.com

I don’t know why fashion editors are less revered as artists than their sister purveyors of creative expression; the painter, the sculptor or even the musician. Perhaps it is because fashion is often mixed in with having to woo consumers and please advertisers, but most conventional art is too, if not more so, now driven by the need to create in order to sell to the highest bidder.

In the broad spectrum of fashion however, just as within art, there lay the storytellers; those who are not spurred by consumerism, but by the desire to produce signature works and visually stimulating creations that tell a story or comment broadly on issues and trends within society.

I had the honor of working with Vogue Australia on cover shoots as a Freelance Fashion Assistant this Fall. I assisted renowned Fashion Editor, Christine Centenera who in her creative process further convinced me that editors deserve more mainstream respect and attention.

She arrived to New York from Australia late in the evening with her assistant, Petta Chua, from what must have been an entire day of travel. We had been preparing and receiving garments well before Christine’s arrival that was to feature actress and cover star, Margot Robbie.

Christine and her assistant walked into the room with a commanding presence and immediately began analyzing the racks we had carefully merchandised. With expert surgical precision, from the perhaps 400+ options that had arrived to us from various designers and PR agencies, the team lead by Christine, scrutinized and edited the wardrobe down to just the few looks that actually made it into the magazine.

It was in this process of editing I took the fashion editor for the true form that she is; an artist. Christine approached the rails of clothing and whether from a brainstorm, her vast prior experience or from being inherently blessed to forecast perfect pairings, she strung together looks with an ease to which a sculptor, cued by his imagination, molds a figure into existence.

From having worked as a Fashion Editor at Harper’s Bazaar, as a style consultant to Kanye West and now as The Fashion Director at Vogue Australia, there is something to be said about her career experience. In her precision and as she moved between the clothes, however she embraced an inherent fluidity and an elevated wisdom like when an illustrator takes to his canvas to sketch a scene. And on set the next day, through the bustle of hair and makeup artists, the photographer and production assistants in between, she orchestrated shot after shot of Margot wearing devised looks, carefully composed like a violinist to a complex musical number.

Fashion glossies month after month display fine selections of creative works by fashion editors. Perhaps the next time you are flipping through, you will take a second to view the work and wonder the implications, like you would ponder a painting and credit it’s maker.

Confessions of a Skin Care Addict: What Happens When One Vogue Editor Stages Her Own Intervention

Skincare Addict Skincare Products

There are moments in your life when you’re able to see yourself as an omniscient observer—those out-of-body experiences that propel you to look at your life and ask in a Talking Heads refrain, “How did I get here?” One such moment occurred on a recent vacation, when I experienced a pang of terror after accidentally applying a face serum in my nine-step skin care routine in the wrong order. Reading that now, it sounds like a no-sweat misstep, but at the time, it was a nerve-racking game ender that sent me into a spiral of self-loathing. I wish I was exaggerating. How did I get there, you ask?

As a beauty editor, it’s an occupational hazard to amass skin care products in droves. Through recommendations by facialists, chic colleagues, and seriously gorgeous interviewees, I had built an arsenal that consisted of one face wash, one toner, three serums, three creams, and one sunscreen, occasionally throwing in a rosewater spray for good, hydrating measure. The entire routine took at least ten minutes. That’s ten minutes of rubbing and massaging my face. And it all felt so luxurious . . . until I effectively coddled my skin into becoming the corporeal equivalent of a spoiled child willing to publicly embarrass me at the slightest offense.

Things had gone too far. I needed an intervention. For this, I called the New York City dermatologist, Jeannette Graf. “I’m a beauty hoarder, too,” she admitted sympathetically over the phone before offering up a reality check. All I really needed for clean, healthy, and happy skin was one cleanser, one sunscreen, and one retinol-based product. “You want to protect your skin during the day and defend it at night,” explained Graf, who suggested that I ditch the toner, and instead rely on a “pH balancing cleanser” that was designed for my skin type but wasn’t overly fragrant, stripping, or mechanically exfoliating. After which, a simple moisturizer would do the trick; dry complexions like mine could find the right moisture balance with an antioxidant serum followed by a face cream—and one with hyaluronic acid, like Mario Badescu’s Hydrating Moisture cream, would pack an extra punch.

After sealing things off with sunscreen—Graf recommended EltaMD’s Broad Spectrum for its “elegant” use of zinc oxide—I’d be ready for the day with four products or less. Better yet, my nighttime routine could be even simpler—amended by switching my morning serum for a retinol and forgoing the sunscreen. Graf likes Avène’s Eluage because “its natural form of Vitamin A is nonirritating.”

It sounded straightforward enough, but, for a second opinion, I reached out to the ultimate beauty minimalist, fashion stylist Stevie Dance, who manages an enviously healthy complexion without the help of so much as mascara. Naturally, she takes an even more laid-back approach. “I think skin is more reflective of your lifestyle and mental health than it is of an expensive cream, serum, or surgery—when you’re happy, your skin has a different texture than when you’re miserable.”

That being said, Dance does keep a few products on hand, including Tracie Martyn’s Amla Purifying Cleanser (which is rich in alkalizing Vitamin C), SkinCeuticals’s CE Ferulic Acid (an antioxidant serum she refers to as “magic”), and Dr. Hauschka’s Revitalizing Day Cream to lock in hydration.

Combining the advice of both Graf and Dance, I stashed my overcompensating routine and stocked up on five straightforward products—with the exception of Caudalié’s hydrating face mist, which I will never feel complete without. When it comes to the new products that make their way across my desk on a daily basis, I’m getting better at making a tighter edit. Today, my medicine cabinet has never been cleaner, my gym bag and luggage never lighter, and my skin never more balanced. Here’s to doing more with less.

Vogue Editor Apologizes For Irresponsible Photo Of Homeless Reader, But Is That Enough?

Not again.

Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, a German princess and style editor-at-large for Vogue, came under fire Saturday for an Instagram post she uploaded while in Paris for Fashion Week.

The image, which brings back unfortunate New York Fashion Week memories, shows what appears to be a homeless person reading Vogue. The caption reads “Paris is full of surprises….and @voguemagazine readers even in unexpected corners!” It has since been deleted and replaced with an apology.

homeless person reading vogue

As a royal and well-known member of the fashion industry, the decision to post a photo like this lacks judgment. But there’s more to consider than just the fact that she messed up. The post speaks to the larger issue of how the fashion industry presents itself on social media.

Sure, people who are not in the public eye make mistakes all the time. But the difference between groveling to an offended friend versus an entire community of followers is vast. In an industry that is often perceived as being tragically disconnected from reality, it’s important to remember that decisions made on social media carry weight.

This disconnect on social media is not new. Kenneth Cole was criticized previously for exploiting possible military action in Syria to sell shoes. Earlier, he mocked protests in Cairo by claiming people in the region simply hear that the “new spring collection is now available online.”

American Apparel has also suffered the consequences of poor decision-making on the Internet. When Hurricane Sandy devastated the east coast in 2012, the brand took the opportunity to offer an online sale to its customers, just in case they were “bored during the storm.”

Just last month, Asos faced a PR nightmare of its own after tweeting a photo of its interns that seemed to lack any racial diversity.

Perhaps it’s time to reconsider the responsibilities of fashion brands and editors when it comes to social media, which can provide followers with an unpolished version of a company or person. It’s up to these tastemakers to understand the effects their posts have on followers and take that into account before posting. Enough is enough.

The Perpetual Bloom of the Flower Brooch, from the Pages of Vogue to Prada

Photo: Courtesy of Fabio Zambernardi

Today, Miuccia Prada, the modernist and avid vintage jewelry collector, accessorized her fall show with floral brooches. Sparkling or solid, they bloomed boutonniere-like from lapels of Easter egg–colored suits, and from the shoulders of beribboned dresses whose debutante prettiness was refreshingly upended by their brevity.

Seen out of context—say halfway down a tweed coat—and removed from their traditional suited-ladies-who-lunch context, these flower pins looked youthful and playful rather than mumsy. As an old favorite is reborn, we look back at some of the never wilting jeweled flower brooches that have appeared in Vogue.

Kim Kardashian Lands Second Vogue Cover And Looks Pretty Amazing

Major congrats are in order for none other than Kim Kardashian West!

The 34-year-old has landed her second Vogue cover, this time for its Australian edition. But instead of being decked out in a wedding gown and cuddled by husband Kanye West, the reality star went with a more natural look for the glossy’s February issue.

Kardashian shocked everyone with her first Vogue cover, so there is sure to be some reaction from both supporters and less enthusiastic readers alike. But love or hate her, there’s no denying she looks gorgeous in an all-white ensemble and natural looking makeup.

Between this, breaking the Internet and landing Elle UK’s January cover, it’s been a pretty great few months for Kim. Who knows, perhaps maybe we’ll even see a smile out of her sometime soon.

Here’s the 1st look of my February cover with Australian Vogue!!!!

One Vogue Cover Doesn’t Solve Fashion’s Big Race Problem

Vogue Editors Make Their New Year’s Fashion Resolutions for 2015

New Year Fashion Resolutions

When the calendar flips to January 1, even the most cynical among us, holed up in our apartments, Netflix blazing against the darkness, invariably entertain thoughts of starting clean! Starting fresh! For fashion people, New Year’s resolutions often take the form of a monumental rethinking of one’s wardrobe—burying those horrible mistakes of 2014 and becoming the sane, rational, ultrachic person in 2015 you know you were always meant to be.

We asked Vogue staffers to share their sartorial resolutions, and responses ranged from the specific: Nick Remsen says he is “asking (begging?) the Proenza guys to make their pre-fall 2015 shaggy shearling coat in my/a man’s size,” to the general—Catherine Piercys insistence that she will “stop buying everything in black, or a variation of black (see charcoal, navy, or petrol). I have dreams of a pastel blue winter coat and lots of print and color!”

Some people want to break self-imposed strictures. Christina Liao regrets that she has “fallen into a slump of dark skinny jeans paired with a black American Apparel T-shirt. It’s time to kick my butt back into gear (in more ways than one) and don those A-line skirts once more.” But others planned to stick with the winners, including that same A-line silhouette. Rickie de Sole says emphatically that in 2015, she will “stick to my shape. I know I love an A-line dress—when I dig into my closet, nine times out of ten that is what I put on day after day. My resolution is to buy more of what I actually wear and less of what I like in theory (in my head, where I am five inches taller then I actually am).”

​Plenty of respondents swear that they will curb their impulse-spending. “I am only buying quality items in 2015, no more cheapies,” declares Alex Frank. “It only took me 28 years to realize this, but if I buy a few nice things that cost more, it evens out to the same price of buying loads and loads of inexpensive stuff that is always in need of replacement.” Chioma Nnadi agrees, alleging that she is “determined to shake my impulse-buying habit, in favor of thoughtful investment shopping. I want 2015 to be the year that I take at least 24 hours to sleep on my late-night eBay sprees (everything looks different in the morning) and actually splurge on things that will live in my closet beyond a season.”

Oddly enough—or maybe not!—footwear seems to elicit the most fervent resolutions, with a wide range of strikingly divergent opinions. Mackenzie Wagoner says she will “invest in more heels. Become a grown-up.” How great it would be if she were the same shoe size as Kelly Connor, who resolves “to get rid of all the high heels in my closet that have been collecting dust over the past year or two. They are neither decorative (size 41 shoes never seem to be!) nor useful to me anymore. Make way for more of my beloved sneakers, loafers, and boots!”

Susan Gordon insists that she will “wear higher heels. I’m tall (five foot ten) so even a two-inch heel makes me at least four inches taller (things work differently after five foot eight). I plan to start with a vintage pair of forties-style Pradas with three-inch heels that have been sitting in my closet, waiting for 2015.” On the other hand, Chloe Malle, is “determined to find a way to make evening flats appropriate even when you’re five foot three!”

Maria Ward shares with this author a desire “to stop being a fashion hoarder—New York City apartments aren’t big enough for such a bad habit! What started as an overflowing wardrobe and overstuffed dresser has expanded over time into an all-in-one apartment/closet fusion.” (I hear you, Maria! That’s me Googling “mini-storage” as the snow swirls outside.)

Then there are those few who actually think that dealing with the inside might improve the outside (or is it the other way around?). Emma Elwick-Bates intends “to actually partake in the sport, rather than just shopping for it. I have a weakness for all things equestrian, and since moving to New York, my tweed hacking jacket and new riding boots are suspiciously mud-free.” And Laird Borrelli-Persson is resolved to bring style to the most mundane activities: “My resolution is to find a way to wear a pedometer or step-tracking bracelet with any kind of flair.”

But perhaps Edward Barsamian, taking the long view, comes closest to the heart of the matter. “Every year I make the same resolution—to shop less. And usually in the lead-up to the year’s end is when I go a little crazy, as I feel like it’s my last chance to get everything in, before I vow to change my ways forever.”
