Game of Thrones’ Ed Skrein Doesn’t Want You to Hold Back Your Tears

British actor Ed Skrein is most well-known for his roles in Game of Thrones, the superhero feature Deadpool and the war flick Midway, which might explain why he’s garnered somewhat of a macho reputation. However, he wants you to forget everything you think you know about him.

We caught up with Skrein to chat about one of his latest roles outside of film — starring in the ad campaign for the Carolina Herrera fragrance, Bad Boy, alongside Karlie Kloss (who is the face of the brand’s Good Girl fragrance).

Below, Ed Skrein tells us why he’s over outdated notions of masculinity, why crying feels so good and the feeling he wishes he could capture in a scent.

What drew you to the Bad Boy fragrance?

I was immediately attracted to the freshness and the deep, dark sensuality of Bad Boy. It makes me think of my good and … Read the rest

Armani Makeup Artist Linda Cantello on Refillable Makeup and a More Sustainable Future

“I’ve always been very vocal about how much I hate powder makeup,” says Linda Cantello, international makeup artist for Armani Beauty. “I’ve always felt that the skin always looks really good until you put powder on,” she laughs. “And then you look 20 years older and you have that mask-y effect.” Known for her ability to create looks that feature glowing, lit-from-within skin, she was skeptical when she was first introduced to Armani Beauty’s Luminous Silk Glow Fusion Powder. But thanks to a presentation from Armani’s lab team highlighting the product’s groundbreaking technology, Cantello was sold.

“They demonstrated how a traditional powder mixed with water got really clumpy, like mud,” she says. “But when Glow Fusion Powder was mixed with water, it became this beautiful smooth liquid.” The powder, which is essentially a dehydrated version of the brand’s bestselling Luminous Silk foundation, uses water memory technology, allowing it to blend … Read the rest

Inspo Alert! Why We Love the Wild Style of Nick Haramis & Misha Kahn

Brooklyn-based power couple Nick Haramis, a Canadian whose current gig is editor-in-chief of Interview Magazine, and Misha Kahn, a multimedia artist who hails from Minnesota, have received much media attention for their eccentrically decorated apartment. Yet their decadent wardrobe choices also beg for a space in the spotlight thanks to an eclectic closet teeming with pleasingly tactile pieces and scads of items by designer Thom Browne.

Canadian Gossip Girl Star Jordan Alexander Is Something to Talk About

Jordan Alexander has some very big — and fashion-forward — shoes to fill as part of the Gossip Girl reboot coming to HBO Max this year. But she has done her best to turn any jitters into an advantage. “I always try to channel any intimidation I might feel into an energy that empowers me rather than makes me cower,” says the Vancouver-born, Toronto-raised talent over the phone as a siren wails faintly outside the window of her New York apartment. She moved to the Big Apple when shooting for the show began last year, although she says she hasn’t been able to fully explore it due to the pandemic.

18 Face Masks to Wear This Spring and Summer

It may be 2021 but with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it’s crucial to continue wearing face coverings when we leave the house. Now that the weather is finally warming up and we enter our second spring in the COVID era, black and grey masks are feeling increasingly monotonous. Luckily, fashion designers have drawn inspiration from brighter, sunnier days to bring us summer face masks that are nearly impossible to feel grumpy in. Tanya Taylor’s offerings have transformative powers, with prints and colours that scream Palm Springs and just dare you to have a bad day while wearing them. Fellow Canadian label ai Toronto Seoul, on the other hand, took a more practical point of view, using a quick-absorbing and fast-drying Aersosilver antibacterial yarn — which is ideal for those sporty spices breaking a sweat outside while masked up.

With the pandemic continuing to keep us on our toes, we’ve rounded … Read the rest
