  • Phone cases double as crossbody bags
    by clopez on August 22, 2019 at 11:10 pm

In Berlin, I saw people holding their phones […] The […]

  • The minimalist Filipino bride is back
    by clopez on August 22, 2019 at 11:00 pm

  • Beauty notes: On Adèle Exarchopoulos’ messy updo
    by Jed Gregorio on August 22, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Welcome to another episode of Myth Busters. Today we tackle the myth: Only French women can wear the messy updo. Surely it is an irreconcilable existential paradox that one country can claim monopoly on the messy updo and the chignon? Indeed it takes a certain committed nonchalance to confidently venture out into the wild world looking like you don’t own a hairbrush, a mirror, a hairdryer, and conditioner—which is basically most guys, but then again we don’t all have […]
