British Women Politely Laugh Every Time Americans Wear These 4 Items

It may be entirely un-British to laugh about anyone else’s style choices (we Brits are far too polite for that), but I will say that as a Brit living in Los Angeles for over 12 years, I’ve picked up on certain American sartorial tendencies that I’ve found rather distinct and funny. I recall being taken aback on my first brunch date in Santa Monica where everyone looked like they had just stepped out of the gym (minus the sweat, of course). This is a far cry from the UK, where you’d never meet friends for lunch in yoga pants or sports gear if you aren’t actually planning to do sports. (Full disclosure: 12 years later, I now look likeI go to the gym too.)

While we love expressing our adoration for classic French style here on Who What Wear, it’s the Brits who take more style risks, exude an edgier Read the rest

Good fashion has certainly been democratized with the influx of social media, but there’s another element of great personal style that can’t be learned. Case in point? The four women I’m showcasing here: these power players quite literally have their fingers on the pulse of what’s next in the fashion world– they are the owners of some of the world’s coolest boutiques.

This season, the classic style has been reimagined in a number of exciting shapes and details that will surely get your sartorial juices flowing.

Vanessa Kirby Delivers a Laid-Back yet Glamorous April 2021 Cover for British Harper’s Bazaar

Despite giving covers to first-timers like Lucan Gillespie and Iman, we have a feeling Lydia Slater is about to recycle a whole batch of British Harper’s Bazaar cover stars. (If last month’s cover with Carey Mulligan is any indication.) Now Vanessa Kirby reappears on the publication for April 2021 three years after her last appearance. In stark contrast to Vanessa’s previous cover shoot, the actress strips it all back giving us “spring chic” with a little help from stylist Cathy Kasterine. In the laid-back cover shot captured by Josh Shinner, Vanessa wears a silk and mohair cardigan from Celine.

The cover soon caught the attention of our forum members. “She’s simply too gorgeous that there are no gimmicks needed. Love the laid-back, easy glamour of this cover. Especially paired with the pastels. Overall, it makes more of a statement than the March one really,” voiced Benn98.

“Easy but … Read the rest

Paris Hilton Stars in Lanvin’s ‘Fabulous’ Spring 2021 Campaign

Can you believe it has been a whole six years since a Lanvin advertising campaign impressed our forum members? The French fashion house is under the creative control of Bruno Sialelli who continues to breathe new life into the brand. Now Lanvin secures none other than Paris Hilton for the Spring 2021 campaign (a refreshing departure from the mundane Glen Luchford-shot ads). Captured by photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott with styling from Carlos Nazario, Paris gets a high-fashion makeover sporting a blond bob and subtle makeup in the undeniably flawless campaign images.

The campaign received nothing but praise. “I love it. It’s so 2000s, fun and fabulous,” described THD96.

“Absolutely love this,” echoed dontbeadrag.

“Ugh, OK. This is absolutely stunning. All her shots look like they were taken mid pose and actually, that’s what makes the campaign so stunning,” admitted Benn98.

The Ageless Spring Capsule Wardrobe: 13 Outfits, Each Under $250

I’ve never been one to embrace uniform dressing, although I admire those who do, like Anna Wintour. While I appreciate the ease of it, I like my wardrobe to have a little more variety. Almost as easy as a go-to uniform (but far more fun) is a capsule wardrobe. If you want to look current for spring but don’t want to spend a ton of time or money figuring out what you need to create fresh, new outfits for the season, a capsule wardrobe is your saving grace. And as I’ve done before, I put one together for you. This timing around, though, I’m leaning more toward classic than trendy.

The beauty of a classic-leaning capsule wardrobe is that it truly works for any age group. These outfits consist of elevated basics like blazers, floral-print dresses, and denim. I did my due diligence and found some of my favorite affordable … Read the rest

Gemma Ward Returns to the Cover of Vogue Australia for March 2021

Editions of Vogue around the world continue to serve up their take on creativity. Now Vogue Australia’s offering has finally dropped. Edwina McCann with her knack for supporting homegrown talent strikes again as she welcomes back one of Australia’s biggest exports to the cover of the Aussie fashion bible.

Shot on location in Byron Bay, Gemma wears a red dress from Fendi’s Spring 2021 collection chosen by stylist Jillian Davison.

Gemma’s comeback garnered mixed feedback on our forums. “Always love Gemma Ward, but the cover literally looks like Modeling 101,” critiqued THD96.

“A creativity shoot in Byron. Groundbreaking,” disapproved dsamg.

“Good to see Gemma, but there’s something missing…” WAVES chimed in.

13 Best Moisturizers For Dry Skin 2020

Practicing healthy lifestyle and habits is an ongoing process. To get a preview of what’s to come in 2020, Insider spoke to stylists and designers about their predictions for the trends we’ll be seeing everywhere next year. Anurag Kashyap made it very clear that he doesn’t want a glossy and larger than life Devdas, but a contemporary Devdas for his adaptation. In all the previous versions of Devdas (including Sanjay Leela Bhansali one), the Devdas was portrayed as a sympathetic character. This time Anurag wanted to emphasise on the negative side of Devdas. Did he really deserve the love of Paro and Chandramukhi? Nope, in fact he ended up ruining lots of lives before ruining his own. Anurag also made mockery of the self pitying hobby of Indians. Here comes the modern Devdas, Paro and Chanda who have changed a lot with the changing times. Dev is this arrogant, spoilt … Read the rest

60 Fashion Insiders Ideas

Throughout history the appeal of cosmetics has been largely influenced by fashions and advertising. Finally, like other skin care products, makeup applied on your face is actually the food for your own face. All the food in the world has expiry date, and so do makeup. Check expiry date for your makeup regularly! Normally, makeup products are with 1-2 year expiry period when they are unopened, but once they are opened, try to use up the cosmetics as soon as possible as they are exposed to bacterial attack once they are opened. Did you know that the most common malignancy is skin cancer? Avoid sunlight and use sunscreen with your skin care cream. If you look at the skin on areas of your body that rarely are exposed to sunlight you will see the effect of the sun on our skin. Women of all ages regularly use at least one … Read the rest
