Duchess Kate Nails Why People Don't Seek Mental Health Help (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:31:01 -0500)




The Duchess of Cambridge is yet again schooling the world on negative mental health stereotypes.


The duchess, along with Prince William and Prince Harry, spoke out about how stigma prevents people with mental illness from seeking support. The brief speech by the former Kate Middleton was part of an event in London on Tuesday for Heads Together, the royals’ mental health charity.


“The challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help. Admitting that they are not coping,” she said. “Fear, or reticence, or a sense of not wanting to burden another, means that people suffer in silence ― allowing the problem to grow larger and larger unchecked.


Kate couldn’t have summed it up better. Too often shame silences those with a mental health condition. And what’s worse is that it could be damaging to that person’s health: Research shows that the misconceptions surrounding behavioral health conditions often stand in the way of people getting professional treatment.


Approximately one in four adults globally experience a mental health issue in a given year. That number increases when you factor in children. Experts say anxiety disorders among kids are one of the most common pediatric problems


This is another mental health issue the royals are hoping to tackle. Last year, Kate penned an essay for The Huffington Post U.K. where she addressed the consequences that come with ignoring a child’s psychological well-being.


“The mental health of our children must be seen as every bit as important as their physical health,” she wrote. “For too long we have been embarrassed to admit when our children need emotional or psychiatric help, worried that the stigma associated with these problems would be detrimental to their futures.”


If we’re being honest, we could listen to this family talk about mental health all day. Keep it up, guys!

Watch Jemima Kirke's Brutally Honest Reflection On Becoming A Mom (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 17:15:46 -0500)




Jemima Kirke is not afraid to speak with raw honesty about motherhood.


On Tuesday, StyleLikeU released a video interview with the “Girls” actress as part of the What’s Underneath Project. The initiative is an interview series in which women answer questions while slowly removing items of clothing to show that style is not simply about the clothes you wear but what lies beneath.


In the 13-minute interview, Kirke opened up about her neuroses, fear, self-loathing and insecurities. Around the 5:30 mark, the actress and artist discussed how these feelings affected her experience of becoming a mother.


“I’m very insecure about my capabilities in a lot of areas ― one of them being parenting,” she said. “I was not ready to have a baby, and I really was not thinking about what I was doing. And I was doing it almost in the same way as getting a haircut or getting a tattoo.”



Kirke and her husband Michael Mosberg welcomed their daughter, Rafella Israel Mosberg, in 2010. She gave birth to their son, Memphis Kirke Mosberg, in 2012. According to reports, Kirke and her husband recently split after seven years of marriage.


Reflecting on Rafella’s birth, Kirke explained, “To a lot of people, it looked like I was getting my life together. The guilt hit me the second she came out of me ... that I was her mother. I realized, I was like, ‘Oh my god, what did I just do? I just released a suffering person, you know? And they’re just gonna give me a baby.’”


Holding back tears, she added, “They should really like, have more of a screening for people at the hospital before they give the baby to you.”


Kirke opened up about raising a child as a young mom. “I was still going through my 20s with her as a toddler,” she said. “And there was something that felt unfair about that to her because I wasn’t ready to stay home every night. And I didn’t have the patience because I still had a lot of self centeredness.”


Watch the video above for more of Kirke’s thoughts on motherhood, marriage, mental health and more.

What Bra To Wear With 6 Of Spring's Biggest Trends (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 15:32:36 -0500)

For Glamour, by Megan Gustashaw.



Any woman who’s had an outfit ruined by an annoying lack of undergarment options can confirm that when it comes to your bra collection, diversity is king. Especially right now, given the number of unique trends coming down the line for spring 2017 that require the right bra to pull them off. The good news: You probably have most of these bras sitting in your undie drawer right now. If not, we suggest doing a restock — they’re all super versatile and can found at every price point and cup size. Read on to see which ones pair best with six of our favorite spring 2017 trends.


The Spring Trend: One-Shoulder Tops and Dresses



We called this look one of Spring 2017’s most wearable trends for a reason; though it shows a bit of skin, practically any body type — and any bust size — can pull it off.


Wear Underneath: Strapless Bras



Most one-shoulder tops and dresses should do fine with a standard-issue strapless bra. Go for a no-frills seamless style that'll create a smooth line. From top: Aerie, $28, at ae.com; Calvin Klein, $45, at net-a-porter.com; Nubian Skin, $60, at nordstrom.com

The Spring Trend: Thin Slogan Tees



Vintage-inspired slogan T-shirts are going to be everywhere this spring, and unless you're going for that whole visible nipple thing, you'll need the right bra.

Wear Underneath: T-Shirt Bras



T-shirt bras — an oldie but goodie — will keep the lines under your paper-thin T-shirt smooth while giving your bust a bit of support and soft shape.


From left: Gap, $23 (Was $40), available at gap.com; Calvin Klein, $38, available at farfetch.com


The Trend: Sheer Dresses and Blouses



While the see-through trend is undeniably sexy, figuring out how to layer up for the real world without defeating the purpose of the look in the first place, takes a minute. It also takes the right bra.

Wear Underneath: Luxe Lingerie



Your best bet when it comes to sheer tops and dresses? Wear them with lingerie-style bras, bralettes, and bodysuits for a super-modern vibe. Proceed with caution if you’re dressing for work, though — this look should be reserved for off-duty hours. From left: Topshop, $50, at topshop.com; Coco de Mer, $101, at matchesfashion.com


The Trend: Square-Shoulder Blazers



Strong, square, ‘40s-inspired blazers and coats are powerful as hell and—after the work day is done — try wearing yours with a gorgeous full-coverage bra underneath, with the jacket buttoned.


Wear Underneath: Bust-Enhancing Bras



Whether balconette or push-up, go for a bra style that enhances your assets. The trend's masculine silhouette allows for a little bit of sex appeal. Clockwise from left: Victoria's Secret, $25 (Was $63), at victoriasecret.com; Chantal Thomass, $131, available at farfetch.com; Stella McCartney, $80, at net-a-porter.com

The Spring Trend: Bra Tops



If you’re going to take on Spring 2017’s bra-top trend (which, by the way, isn’t only for A-cups — Kim Kardshian and Kylie Jenner are both fans), just make sure the straps are supportive enough to lift your bust.


Wear Underneath: Petals



A stick-on bra or "petals" (a.k.a. nipple covers) will give you a little bit of shape and coverage under spring's teeny-tiny tops. Go for one that matches your skin-tone to keep the look invisible. Nordstrom Lingerie, $6 (3-Pack), at nordstrom.com

The Spring Trend: White Dresses



The little white dress lives on! Also alive: The need for a bra that doesn't expose your chest to the world.

Wear Underneath: Second-Skin Bras



Unless you're going for contrast, you can't go wrong with a standard style that matches your skin. Clockwise from left: Gossard, $45, at amazon.com; Dolce & Gabbana, $495, at net-a-porter.com; Chantelle, $39 (Was $88), at gilt.com; Bodas, $40 (Was $80), at net-a-porter.com

Katy Perry Debuts A Suspiciously Trump-Like Hairdo (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 14:23:42 -0500)


Is Katy Perry getting political with her latest hairstyle?


The “Roar” singer debuted her brand new blonde locks at an art exhibit on Saturday. The style is two-toned, with streaks of bleach blonde running through a decidedly Cheeto-orange hue.


Several sites have speculated that the color pokes fun at President-elect Donald Trump. Given that Perry campaigned for Hillary Clinton and posed with Sham Ibrahim’s provocative portrait of Trump as a baby in diapers, we think those sites might be on to something.



The new look is the latest in a long line of major hair transformations for Perry. The star has a penchant for bright hair colors and a formidable collection of wigs. No word yet on whether this hairdo is a dye job or a wig.


Perry will be performing at the Women’s March on Washington event this weekend. If you’ll be attending the anti-Trump march in Washington, D.C., keep your eyes peeled for Perry’s flaming locks.

Bob Dylan's Grandson Levi Is One Very Handsome Model (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 12:04:18 -0500)

It’s not uncommon for the children and grandchildren of celebrities to pursue similar paths as their famous relatives. And it appears that model Levi Dylan, son of Jakob Dylan and grandson of Bob Dylan, is anything but a wallflower


The younger Dylan walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2017 fashion show in Milan on Tuesday, looking downright babely in a double-breasted jacket, a pair of glasses and buckled shoes. 



Dylan told The Cut back in August 2016 that he wouldn’t do runway work because “those guys are really tall,” but changed his tune to walk alongside other famous offspring like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s son Brandon Lee, Jude Law’s son Rafferty and Cindy Crawford’s son, Presley Gerber.






The show is not the 22-year-old’s first foray into the modeling world. Dylan has posed for Wonderland Magazine and Vogue Italia, crediting his photographer girlfriend Alana O’Herlihy with introducing him to the industry.


He has also appeared at Fashion Week before, but it’s pretty clear from his latest gig that he belongs on the runway, not on the sidelines.

Dad Of First Male Maybelline Model Has Perfect Response To Bigoted Blogger (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 11:46:11 -0500)




Manny Gutierrez is a brilliantly talented makeup artist, a YouTube star, a Maybelline model and the son of a pretty awesome dad. 


Earlier this month, Maybelline announced it had chosen Gutierrez as the brand’s first-ever male ambassador. Fans of the former med student, who boasts over 3 million followers on Instagram, were thrilled he is the new face for Big Shot mascara.

But, of course, some haters had to have their say and tried to ruin the groundbreaking moment.


Matt Walsh, a “christian columnist and political incendiary” who writes for The Blaze, tweeted a homophobic message about parenting using a photo of Gutierrez. 






In response, Gutierrez made it clear that his dad is not only “there” for him, he’s also overwhelmingly proud of him and currently works for the model as well. 



You can have a seat

Gutierrez also offered his own awesome definition of what it means to be a “man”:






But the Maybelline star wasn’t the only one with a message for Walsh. Gutierrez’s his dad had his own powerful reply for the blogger. 


“I know the words you speak are from lack of knowing anybody from the LGBT community,” he wrote in a text message screenshot shared by Gutierrez Saturday. “If you did, you would soon realize they are some of the most real and kind hearted individuals that walk this planet of ours. Going forward, I would choose your actions and words wisely. Just like you would do anything for your family, I would DO for mine.” 






You can take that seat now, Matt.

Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits Have Raised Nearly Half A Million Dollars For Charity (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 11:24:09 -0500)


Kylie Jenner is putting her money where her mouth is.


The 19-year-old reality star has turned her luscious lips into a cosmetics empire with the wildly popular Kylie Lip Kits. Jenner recently released an exclusive lip kit called “Smile,” which has netted nearly half a million dollars for charity. 



A photo posted by Smile Train (@smiletrain) on




All of the proceeds from Jenner’s “Smile” lip kit go to Smile Train, a charity that treats children with cleft lips and palates in developing countries. Smile Train teaches local doctors how to perform cleft repair surgeries, and offers these surgeries for free in over 85 countries.


The “Smile” lip kit has had two limited releases. The first sale in October raised approximately $159,000, and this month’s second run upped the total earnings to nearly $500,000.



A photo posted by Kylie Cosmetics (@kyliecosmetics) on




Proud mom Kris Jenner congratulated her daughter on her sizable charitable contribution.














People reports that Jenner’s donation will fund 1,800 cleft repair surgeries for children in need.


No word yet on whether Kylie Cosmetics plans to restock its sold-out “Smile” shade. In the meantime, you can donate to Smile Train directly.

Ralph Lauren Is Reportedly Dressing Melania Trump For The Inauguration (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:55:02 -0500)


With the inauguration only days away, reports are buzzing over who will dress Melania Trump (along with, you know, whether Donald Trump had contact with Russia during the election, and whether Trump will wear L.L. Bean to any events, etc.). 


According to Women’s Wear Daily, designer Ralph Lauren will reportedly dress the future first lady, despite the fact that he supported (and also dressed) Hillary Clinton throughout the election.


The designer is reportedly also working on additional pieces for Trump to wear throughout the inauguration week, WWD says, as well as a few pieces for the rest of the family. The Huffington Post reached out to representatives for Ralph Lauren and will update this piece accordingly. 


Melania Trump has already memorably worn the designer on two occasions. In October she showed up to the third presidential debate in a black “pussybow” jumpsuit from the designer, days after Donald Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” comments from 2005 leaked: 



She then wore a white, one-shoulder jumpsuit from Ralph Lauren for election night in November.


WWD says the Future FLOTUS bought her white outfit from the Ralph Lauren store in NYC (rather than it being given to her by the designer himself).



Many designers have publicly stated that they will never dress Melania Trump, including French designer Sophie Theallet, Tom Ford, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs and Phillip Lim.

Someone Give The Duchess Of Cambridge A Pantene Campaign Already (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:26:38 -0500)

Two words: Hair. Goals. 


The Duchess of Cambridge gave a speech alongside Prince William and Prince Harry in London Monday as part of their ongoing “Heads Together” campaign to end mental illness stigma. 


The former Kate Middleton looked lovely as usual in a long-sleeved, floral Erdem dress. We almost didn’t notice it as we were too busy trying to figure out how to achieve these voluminous levels of hair greatness. 



It is seriously magical. 









Kate’s hair is likely rooted in good genetics and a team of professionals, but hey, we can dream!

Kim K. And Kendall Jenner Rock Sheer Gowns For Their 'Ocean's Eight' Cameo (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:13:38 -0500)

“Ocean’s Eight” is shaping up to be a movie for everyone ― even “Keeping up with the Kardashians” fans. 


Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner were spotted all dressed up in New York City Monday night, heading to film a cameo for the upcoming all-female reboot. 


Jenner was clad in a sheer, intricately detailed high-neck gown, while Kardashian wore a see-through dress with a fur coat. In other words, they looked exactly how you’d imagine they would look in a movie cameo (or any other circumstance, for that matter).




Reports say their appearance in the movie is part of a “crucial scene” involving the Met Gala. But the sisters’ looks actually remind us more of what the entire family wore to Kanye West’s New York Fashion Week show in February 2016.



Not gonna lie, this development just made us almost as excited for the film as those photos of Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway on the subway

A First Lady Style Faceoff Between Michelle Obama And Jackie Kennedy (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 09:39:52 -0500)

Vanity Fair once wrote that comparisons between Michelle Obama and Jacqueline Kennedy were “inevitable,” citing them as “two elegant women, catapulted into the national spotlight by their charismatic, ambitious husbands.”


Americans were captivated by Kennedy and continue to be with Obama for a number of reasons, but you cannot draw similarities between these two women without acknowledging their shared keen sense of style. Whether on a trip to Hawaii or at an inaugural event, both Obama and Kennedy exhibited excellence in dressing the part as first lady. 


In honor of Obama’s 53rd birthday today and ahead of Friday’s inauguration, we look back at the two first ladies’ different ― but equally iconic ― styles.

Fashion's Iconoclast: Six Questions for Teppei Fujita of Sulvam (Tue, 17 Jan 2017 06:43:21 -0500)

2017-01-17-1484651873-1959420-WelcometoSulvam002.jpg


Beloved street style photographer Bill Cunningham once said that "fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life." With that saying always in my back pocket, I watched Japanese designer Teppei Fujita's latest collection for his brand Sulvam expecting to be shaken up by his looks.

What I didn't expect was that the Nina who sat down for the Sulvam Fall 2017 show would not be the same woman who got up immediately after it. I was changed, exhilarated, inspired and in love.

2017-01-17-1484651930-5490706-SULVAM001.jpg


So how does a fashion brand, or better a designer do that, change the world? By creating an armor, to quote the late Mr. Cunningham, that not only protects against the chaos of humanity at the moment, but also feels like couture -- something precious and unique to the wearer. Even owning the shoe laces that were tied strategically around his models' ankles and hung from their necks -- and which were used as ribbons for the giveaway black scarves we found on our seats before the show -- felt like I was getting a piece of unique, wonderful Sulvam style.

2017-01-17-1484652188-7928854-IMG_3905.jpg


I could not resist having my photo taken with Fujita, who is taller than I expected in real life, and sports a striking tattoo in black ink on his chest. His voice is strong and self assured, and while our conversation may have been lost in translation, I still felt like we communicated via our clothes. Through our personal style, which is how so much non-verbal communication comes across.

2017-01-17-1484652270-4372426-SULVAM005.jpg


Probably the fact that Sulvam is a brand that cuts across barriers, crosses effortlessly borders of language, culture and gender so perfectly didn't hurt. Easily interchangeable between male and female models, most of the looks shown inside the Stazione Leopolda for the presentation at this season's Pitti Uomo in Florence were awe-inspiring but also crave-worthy. And what Fujita himself wore, with that peak of red bandana showing through the elegant black and white, was fashion genius.

2017-01-17-1484652307-2736605-SULVAM0062.jpg


And now to a final thought, before leaving you with his Q & A, a short but sweet taste of the wonder that is Teppei Fujita. What if our strongest armor turned out to be the softest lining and the sheer essence of the easiest black suit? Or maybe camouflage reinvented could protect us in the world at large, by creating a cocoon like the one shaped by this coat (pictured above). Whatever the answer, fashion, what you wear, will always change the way you feel and thus, the way you interact with the humanity around you. So choose wisely, dress to suit yourself, before you venture out into the world.

2017-01-17-1484652771-4995655-SULVAM013.jpg


What are some things from your collection for Fall '17 that we can begin to use in our everyday life?

Teppei Fujita: Everything. In particular, the shoelaces and the long belts.

What was your inspiration for this particular collection?

Fujita: I didn't have any particular inspiration but I always make clothes to match whatever comes up in my mind and whatever my mood is.

2017-01-17-1484652905-9337039-SULVAM029.jpg


Do you listen to music while you're creating?

Fujita: Yes. Old music. I like hip hop, rap and also jazz and house music. The older the better.

Do you listen to music while you sketch?

Fujita: I don't sketch! I drape and make patterns but I don't "design".

2017-01-17-1484652834-6759627-SULVAM026.jpg


If you had to describe yourself to someone who doesn't know you, what would you say?

Fujita: I do everything by my mood. Whatever comes up in my mind, I do.

So you'd say you're very impulsive and instinctual?

Fujita: Yes. I like people a lot. (There is a laugh shared between Fujita and his translator and then, as if on cue, he says...) And I like girls too!

This Simple Device Solves A Major Problem For Pierced Ears (Mon, 16 Jan 2017 17:29:22 -0500)

Years of wearing heavy earrings can stretch your ear piercings and make your earrings droop. While getting a surgical “lobe lift” is one option, surgery isn’t for everyone. With the help of a more supportive earring back, you can ease the pressure on your lobes and get rid of that saggy look. 


Earring backs that are specifically designed to keep your earrings lifted, like Levears, can help your earrings sit more comfortably. Levears’ patented earring backs claim to “leverage the part of your ear above the pierced hole” to distribute the weight of your earrings across a larger area of your ear. Ultimately it aims to alleviate the stress on your actual piercing hole and lift your earring at the same time. 


Check out the video below to watch the Levears in action.

This Unicorn Hair Is The Definition Of Extra (Mon, 16 Jan 2017 14:44:13 -0500)

We all love a good rainbow dye-job. But when the hairstyle actually involves a styrofoam unicorn horn, well, that’s just a line we won’t cross.


Watch the video below to see the mad scientists at Turnt Beauty take rainbow hair one step too far. 





The video starts out adorably enough. The hairstylist dyes her client’s hair various shades of pink, blue and purple and curls it into beautiful ringlets. But then, the nightmare begins.





Yep. That’s a unicorn horn.


We’re crossing our fingers that this particular hairstyle doesn’t catch on. It’s hard enough to make our hair presentable in the morning without adding styrofoam props to the mix.


If you’re getting a head start on your Halloween costume, or you’re simply THAT extra, allow this video to assist you. Otherwise, we’d recommend the far more practical hidden rainbow trend.
