Sources say  will be the focus of the Costume Institute's spring exhibition
The enigmatic designer and woman behind  will reportedly be the sole subject next spring. It would mark only the second time a living designer has been honored by the museum with a solo exhibition, after a Yves Saint Laurent show in 1983. A Met spokeswoman declined comment to WWD. 

 film is happening
A movie depicting the relationship between the late British designer and his muse, the late fashion editor Isabella Blow, is in the works. Entitled "The Ripper," the film will document the tumultuous friendship between the designer and the fashion editor, and will be produced by Maven Pictures with Gesha-Marie Bland as screenwriter. The iconic duo frequently collaborated together and continue to be recognized for their contributions to the industry. 

That's right: Barbie is an #influencer
Sponsored Instagram posts have become a recently and, as it turns out, America's favorite doll is cashing in, too. Do a quick scroll through @barbiestyle and you'll find  first ever #sponcon posts, featuring a blowout courtesy of Dyson Hair (yep, complete with a Barbie-sized Supersonic and everything) and a Dyson-sponsored trip to Hawaii. Barbie is making the most out of its (her?) 1.5 million followers by working with a team of designers to create custom outfits and employing both an in-house marketing team and a top fashion publicity firm to build partner relationships. 

Lily-Rose Depp's Chanel No. 5 teasers are here
In a series of two 10-second teaser clips,  the face of the newest fragrance addition to the family, touts the tagline for the new scent, "You know me, and you don't," while looking positively mysterieuse. The film campaign was directed by Swedish filmmaker Johan Renck and full-length videos will hit the internet later this year.

Would You Wear... a Vinyl Trench Coat?

It's all in the art of trickle down fashion-nomics. Trends start at the top on the runways, then move to high-end boutiques, then to department stores, and finally to our favorite shops. Unfortunately the vinyl trench coat trend is still hanging out around the top, but it's only a matter of time until we can get our paws on a reasonably-priced one.

Vinyl trenches are like the child of Harriet the Spy and Catwoman. It's undeniable: wearing one will make you feel like an incredibly cool and stylish secret agent. (And what could be better than that, really?)

Adele Just Ditched Her Signature Cat Eye And Still Looks Amazing

If there’s one thing Adele’s known for other than her heart-wrenching lyric and spine chilling vocals, it’s her signature cat eye. Everyone is so eager to learn how Adele flicks her winged liner so perfectly, that her makeup artist Michael Ashton went as far as filming his own tutorial. She’s usually seen pairing the look with flushed cheeks and nude or red lipstick, but she shocked us with her latest beauty move.

Adele decided to switch things for a change by removing her cat eye entirely, all while documenting the process for her 16.2 million Instagram followers. As she stopped in Phoenix, Arizona for her sold-out US tour, Adele posted a photo of herself literally wiping off her eyeliner, followed by another photo sans liner. It turns out that she was actually beating a terrible cold and had to cancel her performance, and in turn treated the world to some makeup-free selfies. We have to admit we’re a bit jealous that she still looks this good while sick. But is it enough to convince you to toss out your eyeliner? Let us know in the comments below.

Knot Eau Florale by BOTTEGA VENETA


Bottega Veneta-Knot and Knot Eau Florale- packshots- 75ML AED 525

Knot Eau Florale is the continuation of the collaboration between Tomas Maier and master perfumer Daniela Andrier.

A delicate floral expression of the Knot fragrance, Knot Eau Florale features amplified notes of Rose and Peony layered with the softness of musk. The Mediterranean soul of the scent continues to radiate through notes of mandarine, neroli and lavender, underscored by the earthiness of cedarwood and tonka beans.

The combination of these rare materials is what gives Knot Eau Florale its unforgettable nature. “I wanted the fragrance to capture an awakening of the senses though an escape to the garden,” says Maier. “It is these quiet moments of respite that I believe are the ultimate luxury.”

Benefit Cosmetics Lip Kits & Eye Kits That Are As Good Kylie’s Kits


Lip and eye kits seem to be this year’s ultimate must-have beauty products, especially Kylie’s kits. However, since the Kylie Cosmetics makeup kits fly off the shelves very quickly, many are always looking for equally quality alternatives to try out. One of those alternatives are the newest Benefit Cosmetics Lip Kits and Eye Kits, available and Sephora, which we promise are as good as Kylie’s kits, both in terms of quality and costs!

Benefit Cosmetics Big Sexy Eye Kit

Let’s start off with the Benefit Cosmetics Eye Kit, which has been figuratively dubbed ‘They’re Real! BIG SEXY Eye Kit’. Already available at the brand’s official website, the Benefit Cosmetics BIG SEXY Eye Kit features three duo eyeshadows that retail at a competitive price (£27). It includes a shadow blender too, but the colors may be applied with your fingers too.

The featured eyeshadow shades are Beyond Nude, Naughty Neutral and Bombshell Brownand, for those who are familiar with Kylie’s kits and prefer eyeshadows, the resemblance with those of the Keeping up with the Kardashians star is undeniable. The only missing shade is the burned orange color Kylie added to her most recent palette, but we feel we could turn a blind eye to it.

What’s even better regarding the Benefit Cosmetics Eye Kit is that, as stated by the brand, “the perfectly paired neutral eyeshadow duo lasts 12 budge-proof hours and the custom ShadowBlender ensures expert application every time!”

The ‘They’re Real’ eye line includes mascara and liner kits too, available both on and at Sephora.

As for the Benefit Cosmetics ‘They’re Real, BIG SEXY LIP KIT’, things are equally appealing! The lipstick kit comes for £24 and will make both the contouring and the filling processes easier. It includes four different items, with each one of them featuring both a lip liner and a lipstick.

The available colors are Flame Game (an orange red), Pink Thrills, Revved-Up Red and Lusty Rose, with the liner coming in a slightly darker shade for creating the ombre lip look. These lip kit colors might not be exactly in tune with Kylie’s lip products (except maybe for the nude Lusty Rose one), but surely feature a similar top-notch quality and the possibility to own four different lipsticks for the price of two.

Each one of these lipsticks and liners lasts longer than an average lip product and, according to those lucky costumers who had the chance to test it, “it’s super easy to apply” and makes the “lips look visibly fuller and sexier”.

Both the Benefit Cosmetics lip and eye kits will be available at brick-and-mortar stores starting from this October!
