Kelela Mizanekristos Is America's Sweetheart Kelela Mizanekristos Is America's Sweetheart

The dominance of emotionally narcissistic men in music, Drake and his disciples, has been somewhat exhausting; their object-relationship with women and centering of selfish demands in soft croons like a radio version of three-card monte. But, simultaneously, we’ve been fortunate to have seen women musicians like…

Do Not Be Afraid to Accessorize with a Pool Noodle Do Not Be Afraid to Accessorize with a Pool Noodle

Becca McCharen-Tran, the visionary designer behind pop star-fave and preeminently inclusive label Chromat, is unafraid of an unconventional accessory. Perhaps you will recall the tubular floaties she attached to her pieces for Fall 2017, or last season’s practical and stylish O-ring embellishments.

Yeahhh... No Yeahhh... No

The kitten heel is an item that we regrettably omitted from our post about 2007 fashion trends that have returned with a vengeance, but it was a simple mistake, or perhaps denial on our parts. Today, however, the T Magazine reminded us that our Spring will echo with the sound of these tiny, impractical stilts slapping…

CBS This Madeleine CBS This Madeleine

Our beloved Madeleine Davies appeared on CBS This Morning, this morning, to talk about her post here and how Quentin Tarantino is a hypocritical slimebag (paraphrased). Watch her, and Roman Polanski victim Samantha Geimer, here.

Wear a White Rose If We Should Send Help: Every Look on the Grammys Red Carpet Wear a White Rose If We Should Send Help: Every Look on the Grammys Red Carpet

The Grammys typically showcase some of the more compelling ensembles during red carpet awards season thanks to an increased freedom of expression within the music industry compared to the film one. (That, and far fewer opportunities for corporate sponsorships from big-name designers).

Carrie Fisher Won a Grammy From Beyond the Grave Carrie Fisher Won a Grammy From Beyond the Grave

While the flashy performances and biggest categories won’t start for another two hours, the 60th Annual Grammy Awards has already begun in New York City, and one prestigious winner happens to be Carrie Fisher, who dunked on Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo, Bruce Springsteen, and Shelly Peiken in…

Yo, Stop Fucking Up Cardi B's Chicken Caesar Salad

Years before Cardi B was a platinum-selling rapper, she was an avid and sensible administrator of advice and op-eds via her Instagram. Though she still reminds us of this acumen multiple times daily via @IAmCardiB, her latest Instavid really takes it back to why we loved her in the first place.

Hey, Kitty Girl: It's Your RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars 3 Premiere Liveblog!

All-Stars seasons of Drag Race always up the ante just a little bit—the queens, previously disqualified and sometimes disgraced (Willam), know far better what to expect than less seasoned newbies on regular seasons (exception: Shangela), and so they ideally come even more correct and bring a host of looks that won’t…

Grace Jones Is an Eternal Muse at Alexandre Vauthier Couture Grace Jones Is an Eternal Muse at Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Couture shows are going down in Paree right now and so far, with a couple of exceptions—Iris!!! The Only Good Designer—they’re mostly a snooze of finery and chiffon (albeit, you know, couture-crafted). Alexandre Vauthier, though, the man who dresses the most interesting people on the red carpet, has gone further into…

Karl's Back on His Bullshit at Chanel Couture Karl's Back on His Bullshit at Chanel Couture

Karl’s latest haute couture collection—shown today in Paris to the likes of Ibeyi, Sofia Coppola, Isabelle Huppert, and Marion Cotillard—is eye candy for gleeful widows, full of fluffy tulle skirts beneath signature tweed jackets and spritely mourning veils capped with a melange of florals. Some looks were reminiscent…

Millennial Pink's Not Dead On the SAG Awards Red Carpet Millennial Pink's Not Dead On the SAG Awards Red Carpet

Those of you who haven’t had The Orb’s “Little Fluffy Clouds” stuck in your head since 1991 might want to revisit it, because it’s apparently become a fashion cue: roughly one-half of the actresses walking Sunday night’s SAG Awards red carpet were dressed like millennial pink cumulous clusters, all dreamy and fluffy…

The Blue Wave Is Galvanized at the NYC Women's March The Blue Wave Is Galvanized at the NYC Women's March

On 77th Street and Central Park West in Manhattan, penned in a holding pattern while an estimated 200,000 people waited to march, an ocean of blue was at a standstill. Situated in a cluster of about a hundred women and men was something like a roving art installation: at its fore, two six-foot pink “gates” reading…

Babe, What Are You Doing? Babe, What Are You Doing?

Late Saturday evening, the website Babe.net published a detailed account of an encounter between “Grace,” an anonymous 23-year-old photographer, and the actor Aziz Ansari. It described a September 2017 incident in which Grace says that she and Ansari went on a date after first meeting at an Emmys afterparty, and how,…

Every Look From the Golden Globes Red Carpet, Brought to You by Sexual Harassment and the Color Black Every Look From the Golden Globes Red Carpet, Brought to You by Sexual Harassment and the Color Black

Celebrities have been planning for weeks to wear black on tonight’s Golden Globes red carpet, an expression of solidarity with Me Too and a plea for Hollywood’s climate of sexual harassment to never return to the status quo. But how will that actually play out in practice? Can a night that normally represents glamour,…

Swagged-Out Streetwear Cat Freaks Me Out, But I Also Envy It

Hypebae, the best website on the internet about all things hypebae, has presented us with an intriguing day-in-the-life video about Zappa, a Dutch Instagram cat whose streetwear collection would put to shame most of the 14-year-old boys spending their lives in the line for Supreme drops.

Our Pal Lindy West Is Dropping Two More Books! Our Pal Lindy West Is Dropping Two More Books!

Lindy West—author, New York Times columnist, former Jezebel staffer and crafter of excellent headlines—is releasing two new books, one in 2018, and we could not be more psyched.

If You Weren't Watching SMILF Before, Now's the Time to Start

The season finale of SMILF, Showtime’s sweet, thoughtful new show about single motherhood, opens with credits in the font from Manhattan and a Woody Allen quote: “The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic to those things.” Before the quote can dissipate, a young girl’s voice wafts in. She says, “Hey grandma? My…
