Stuart Wilson/BFCGetty Images Like hurt puppies and drunk Tinder swipers, fashion needs some self-protection right now. That feels especially true in London, where Brexit is more on-again-off-again than a Bachelor in Paradise romance, and environmental protests are hardcore, sincere, and—in the face of the climate crisis—impossible to discount.

Tommaso BoddiGetty Images Though she’s only 21, Halima Aden has lived a lot of life. Born and raised in a refugee camp in Kenya before moving to the U.S. at age seven, in 2017, Aden became the first mode wearing a hijab to walk a show during New York Fashion Week. Since then she’s become
Slaven VlasicGetty Images “I’ve been thinking a lot about icons,” said Guido Palau backstage at the Marc Jacobs spring 2020 show. He’d made 61 hair looks, all of them different, all of them (hopefully) iconic. “We don’t actually know Marilyn Monroe,” he continued, “But we feel like we do, because we’ve bought into her imagery.
Thomas ConcordiaGetty Images Though Serena Williams may not have won the Grand Slam at the US Open, the tennis player scored big at the Fall 2019 presentation of her S by Serena Williams collection.

I want to be upset at Rihanna for not giving us an album in nearly four years—I really do. But there’s no way one can stay mad at Rihanna when she’s been committed to blessing us with gifts at every turn. Her latest gift, the second Savage x Fenty show, might be the greatest gift
Rebecca Minkoff The vibe: Working woman who still loves Coachella Get the look: A tiny hair extension was attached just above the ear on one side. “I love how subdued the color is, as if it’s faded like she’s holding onto a memory, but the placement is still easily concealed,” said hairstylist Marjan.
NurPhotoGetty Images Walking the red carpet is an act that takes mere minutes—seconds, even—but requires hours of preparation. Just ask Armani Beauty ambassador Barbara Palvin. I got a true understanding of this long process when, ahead of the Venice Film Festival premiere screening of Joker (which we attended as guests of Armani), I met the
Rosdiana CiaravoloGetty Images One time, when I tried a new liquid foundation, my skin broke out in hives on contact. Around my nose, the skin was raised, red, and painfully itchy. I’ve come to realize that my skin, dosed-up with years of prescription acne-fighting topicals, is really sensitive. One wrong move and it’ll have a
Tommy Hilfiger and Zendaya Coleman’s first outing was a very big deal featuring none other than Grace Jones. Last night, they managed to top themselves presenting a cinematic ’70s-inspired collection at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem. The show actually took place just outside the theater (the auditorium was used as a production staging area).
Alexander Wang and Bvlgari are kind of like X-Men with better shoes: alone, they’re a force; together they’re unstoppable. That’s the verdict after last night, anyway, when Wang debuted his remake of Bvlgari’s famous Serpenti Forever bag, and threw a party for the ages. Scroll down for details that’ll make you feel you were there―but
Astrid StawiarzGetty Images Gigi Hadid’s great at making headlines, so naturally she’s an expert at wearing them, too. At Jeremy Scott’s Spring 2020 fashion show, the supermodel arrived in overalls plastered with news stories—appropriate, since the runway itself was loaded with colorful clickbait. Gigi ♥ Jeremy Astrid StawiarzGetty Images A mash-up of Jem, GLOW, and
New York Fashion Week has officially kicked off, and while it’s definitely a privilege to look at beautifully constructed clothes for a living, it’s still a job at the end of the day. And like with any gig, sometimes you need some hyper-specific things to get you through those high-stress, fast-paced days. Ahead, five ELLE
Can somebody please say a prayer for my debit card? There’s nothing wrong it, per se, but just when I thought I was finished with Fall shopping, Shopbop swooped in with an exclusive capsule collection to celebrate its 20th anniversary with 20 designer pieces from, you guessed it, 20 different designers. The capsule collection, called
There’s just something about the arrival of fall that inspires a lot of us to undergo a complete transformation, be it a new hair cut or color, and Britney Spears is ready for a fresh new start. Our forever pop queen and longtime blondie ditched her signature blonde hair to return to her roots just
To lead or not to lead? That is the question that Net-a-Porter set out to answer when it launched the Vanguard, a program for dawning designers who receive mentorship from and have their labels stocked by the e-commerce site. In the Vanguard’s third season, Net-a-Porter has announced the four new brands it plans to catapult
Rihanna, Coolest Woman in the World™, also hangs with some of the coolest people in the world. Take for example her makeup artist and Fenty Global Ambassador Priscilla Ono. The Badgal fell in love at first sight when she spotted Ono on the set of her S&M video. So in love she casted her in
Tracee Ellis Ross’s voluminous, bouncy curls are the first thing you see when the actress steps into a room. But how does she make her hair look good? While starring on the popular sitcom Girlfriends, she noticed she was one of the few actresses in Hollywood embracing their natural hair, which was “a journey not
What I love most about a trip to the nail salon is it’s basically an oasis of endless possibilities. That being said, most trips to the salon still begin with me staring down the “services” menu trying to figure out if I’ll stick to a regular manicure or treat myself to something more creative like
Alongside PSLs and leggings, a fleece jacket used to be a key part of the Basic Student starter pack. Now, the fashion industry is claiming it as its own. Indie designer Sandy Liang was the first to adopt the look back in 2015 with her Insta-famous outerwear, but the trend is peaking. Philip Lim, Fendi,
Smart shoppers know that you can often find really good discounted items during those end-of-the-season sales. There is always the chance that what you like is sold out, but that won’t be the case today. J.Crew is having a summer sale with an extra 50 percent off sale pieces (and 40 percent off regular-priced items)!
Courtesy Clip-on Earrings Chanel chanel.com $800.00 Say goodbye to dainty, barely there jewelry, because the next big thing in baubles is exactly that: Big. Like every other cyclical fashion trend (see: the Princess Di biker shorts revival, our current obsession with square-toe shoes, and those tiny Matrix sunglasses we already regret), we’re seeing the return
You know the drill—it’s been a long week, you’re suffering from a hormonal breakout, etc.—and the only plausible solution is to spend money on what I believe my grandmother refers to as an “impulse purchase.” What Granny doesn’t know is that there’s a difference between an impulse and a I-need-this-to-feel-good purchase…and what Grandma doesn’t know,
In the middle of the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Madagascar, lies the tiny island of Mauritius. Encircling it like a necklace is one of the world’s largest coral reefs, which, like coral reefs everywhere, is under threat from warming oceans.

Alice Marie Johnson, who was famously granted clemency thanks in part to Kim Kardashian’s meeting with the president, is the star of Kardashian’s new SKIMS shapewear campaign. Kim launched the brand under the name Kimono earlier this year before changing the name amid backlash in July. On August 26th it was re-launched under the name
In ELLE.com’s Style Files we ask our most stylish friends how they got that way. Up first, Brittany Xavier, the brains behind the eponymous blog (formerly named Thrifts and Threads) and an Instagram account with more than 1 million followers.

Benoît Peverelli When it comes to putting on eyeliner, I’m as nervous and shaky as one can get. Eyeliners are basically the MVP of eye makeup, and one wrong move can result in a slew of black marks ruining the flawless mug you spent nearly two hours creating. As the star of your makeup bag,
