We love any excuse for a party—so we threw one for our Year of the Dog Pop-In! With the help of our friends at pet-sitting service Rover, we invited 10 camera-ready dogs to celebrate with us. Get to know the names, fave things and Instagram handles of the pups who modeled the shop’s dog wares (and were totally unfazed when we pulled out tiny party hats).

Pep Gay’s Glamorous, Gilded Ladies at Tadashi Shoji | Baskstage Beauty

Beauty Fashion Week Makeup

In his latest collection, Tadashi Shoji proves that power is synonymous with glamour and sexiness. His Fall 2018 runway embodied a fiercely feminine energy—each look that strutted down the catwalk, dramatic and deeply unapologetic.

To complement the strength of Tadashi’s collection, makeup artist Pep Gay was tasked with creating a beauty look that would continue the luxurious narrative of tulle gowns and sequined suits. Gay answered the call with a mesmerizing wash of gold on the eyes using MAC Cosmetics, harkening the elegance of the red carpet, where we can easily imagine Tadashi’s designs gracing the silhouettes of Hollywood A-listers. Just-bitten berry lips finished the look, creating truly beautiful makeup that does not compete with the fashions, but makes them shine. Ahead, we break down the look, so you can recreate it step by step.

Spring has officially sprung in New York City according to the fashion pack’s brightly colored outfits and hiked hemlines. Primary colors replace the usual head-to-toe neutrals and red continues to dominate as the current It color. But there is another standout hue on the horizon: canary yellow, as seen in brilliant knitwear, fluttering floral skirts, trousers and more. When the weather is so-so, street stylers bring their own sunshine.

Let these springy styles inspire you for the season ahead.

Rain showers didn’t wash away the style in the streets of New York this Fashion Week. Chic slickers and Perspex CHANEL hats were the preferred weather-appropriate attire for show attendees, with black brollies dotting the sidewalks. When the sun came out, so did the shades and the spring collections—layered under furry statement coats made necessary by February’s chill.

Winter may still be here, but these fashion folks have mastered transitional dressing. See how they do it during NYFW, come rain or shine.

Valentine’s Date Night at Home with Herbivore Botanicals

Beauty Interviews Skin Care

For Alex Kummerow and Julia Wills, the husband and wife duo behind Herbivore Botanicals, simple gestures are the most romantic. Rather than opt in to the Valentine’s Day hubbub come February 14, the couple retreats to the solitude of their house for a delicious home-cooked meal, surrounded by flowers (preferably orchids) and chakra-cleansing rose quartz, the stone of universal love.

Ahead, the couple shares their plans for the ideal Valentine’s Day date night at home, which includes Julia’s recipe for a bath so calming, you’ll want to soak for hours.

Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright Shifts Our Perspective in the Short Film, “Why Can’t We Get Along” post image

Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright Shifts Our Perspective in the Short Film, “Why Can’t We Get Along”

Fashion Week Interviews Style Video

The brand rag & bone is a story of contrasts: English tailoring meets American workwear, uptown versus downtown, masculine and feminine—all told to customers around the globe. Sartorial storytelling is the brand’s niche, and is often led by CEO and founder Marcus Wainwright, who continually finds new mediums for his evolving fashion message.

We spoke to Wainwright ahead of his new short film (co-directed by Benjamin Millepied, Aaron Duffy, and Bob Partington and filmed by Darius Khondji), which showcases rag & bone’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The short, “Why Can’t We Get Along,” features dance as a metaphor for seeing from another’s point of view, and stars Kate Mara and Ansel Elgort, in addition to the label’s spring styles and a soundtrack by Thom Yorke.

Vacation in a Bottle: Aerin Lauder’s New Scent Evokes a Tropical Paradise post image

Vacation in a Bottle: Aerin Lauder’s New Scent Evokes a Tropical Paradise

“If you’re in Seattle or London or New York and you can’t actually get away, one sniff of this perfume will transport you somewhere beautiful … and warm,” promises Aerin Lauder about her new fragrance, Hibiscus Palm. Considering the grey skies overhead, we’ll try anything. But this prettily packaged perfume, which celebrates far-off destinations, white sand beaches and sweet-smelling coconut, happily sates our winter wanderlust. It’s like sunshine in a vintage-inspired bottle, a perfumed antidote to the cold and slush outside.

To celebrate the launch of Hibiscus Palm, Aerin was joined by Julie Sariñana, Helena Glazer Hodne and Tina Craig for yoga, massages and trips to the cenotes in Tulum, Mexico—the sort of palm-fringed paradise evoked by her latest exotic fragrance. After a few days spent luxuriating on what would be our dream vacation, Aerin sat down with our National Beauty Director Marynell Maddox to talk about Hibiscus Palm, what makes it so special and the special way she learned to apply her perfume from her grandmother, Estée.
