Here’s Your 10-Piece Winter Capsule Wardrobe Checklist

Fashion
If you’ve been toying around with the idea of a simplified wardrobe, there’s no better time to start than the winter.When I first joined the capsule wardrobe movement last spring, my wardrobe was in a constant state of confusion. I challenged myself to 3 months of little more than 30 pieces of clothing (inspired by Courtney Carver and her #project333), and though I had prepared for an average spring, the weather had other plans. I was dipping in and out of my winter clothes ― putting them back up, only to pull them out again a few days later. Needless to say, it was not the smoothest transition into the capsule lifestyle.Fast-forward to today, in the dead of winter, and I’ve mastered my capsule game. Winter is pretty predictably cold, so it’s easier to focus on warm layers. I have a stu

The debate over the authenticity of “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” intensified Wednesday with dueling statements from the show’s executive producer, Ryan Murphy, and the Versace fashion house.  The second season of the FX true crime anthology series explores the murder of fashion designer Versace (played by Édgar Ramírez) by serial killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss). It’s based on Maureen Orth’s 1999 book about the case, Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History.  On Monday, the Verace family released a statement distancing themselves from the series, saying it had “neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever” in the show, calling it “a work of fiction.”   Murphy, in turn, rebutted those remark

‘American Crime Story’ On Gianni Versace’s Death Is Fiction, Family Says

Fashion
Fans of the “American Crime Story” awaiting the upcoming season of the show, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” should know that the Versace family says the show is “a work of fiction.” The second season of the FX true crime anthology television series concerns the death of fashion designer Gianni Versace in 1997 at the hands of serial killer Andrew Cunanan. Versace was one of the world’s leading fashion designers and his siblings, Santo and Donatella, kept the Versace design house afloat after his murder. The Versace family said it has “neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace.” “Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenpla

For some, a lipstick is just a lipstick. But for others, it’s a source of strength, creativity and expression. In our series Power Faces, we’ll explore the relationship between strong women and the makeup they choose to wear — or not. Our eighth subject, Scarlett Costello, is a model and student living in New York City. I love my eyebrows now, but to be honest, I don’t really think of them. I was born with a unibrow, so these are just my eyebrows, you know what I mean? But I did start waxing them at a really young age, probably in sixth or seventh grade. My mom is a hairdresser, so I grew up in a salon basically my whole life. I’d be there with her after school, and the waxing woman, who’s my mom’s friend, would wax my eyebrow because I was embarrassed of it. Then in high school I just

British Royal Apologizes After Wearing Offensive Jewelry In Front Of Meghan Markle

British Royal Apologizes After Wearing Offensive Jewelry In Front Of Meghan Markle

Fashion
A British Royal apologized Friday for wearing a racially insensitive accessory during a Christmas lunch hosted by Buckingham Palace earlier this week.  Princess Michael of Kent, 72, attended the gathering wearing a brooch featuring a miniature bust of an African woman embellished with gold and colorful jewels. What made the fashion choice especially awkward was that Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s fiancée who is half black and half white, was a guest at the holiday lunch. The event marked the first time Markle, who will become Princess Henry of Wales when she and Prince Harry wed in May, had met many of the Royal Family’s extended family, according to People magazine. In a statement to People and the Daily Mail, a spokeswoman for Princess Michael said that the brooch was a gift she had w

But, if you’re like us, you instantly wondered where the actress got her gorgeous gown. The photos show Markle wearing a jaw-dropping, dreamy ballgown from the British design house Ralph & Russo. It’s from the haute couture brand’s Fall/Winter 2016-2017 line, according to Fashionista. From the gorgeous top with gold embellishment, to the flowing, textured tulle skirt, every inch of this dress is sheer perfection. To keep the top from actually being sheer, Markle likely added a nude lining. As you can see in these runway photos, the dress is normally quite see-through:   (function(d, s, id){ var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;} js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.async = true; js.src = "https://connect.facebook.net/
