The New Burberry Picture Featuring Shirtless Adam Driver Is Going Viral.

In August, there is one big summer accessory that is thrilling the public: a sculpted set of abs. On Monday, actor Adam Driver starred in another Burberry fragrance campaign. The advertisement for the brand's new fragrance "Burberry Hero" was directed by Jonathan Glazer, who is known for the 2014 music video for the song "Big Jet Plane" by Angus & Julia Stone. The commercial features Driver running across a deserted beach at dusk with a mighty, caramel-colored horse in tow. The two beings dive into the ocean together and emerge as a single animorph, fusing the romantic hero-on-horseback trope with a healthy dose of Greek mythology.   Fans of the actor and members of the press were quick to posit that the campaign images, which show Driver shirtless in waist-deep water, are a res...

Look Of The Week Julia Fox Takes The New Trend In The Low-Profile Design To New Levels.

Since her relationship with Kanye West in 2021, Julia Fox has been known for her sartorial unpredictability. Her DIY-ing a bandeau top and matching bottoms out of a single pair of jeans using just a pair of scissors, as well as her now quintessential finger-painted black eyeliner look, have made her the enfant terrible of celebrity fashion. Last Friday, singer-songwriter and actress FKA twigs was spotted wearing centaur-inspired leather trousers with a plunging V-crotch and a pair of black string bikini top at a show in New York City. She later took to Instagram to provide context for her outfit: "There was one hook," she said in a video posted to her stories, "and I had to put them on and then shave, like, around it." Fox's ensemble, designed by Central Saint Martins graduate Liza ...

Brad Pitt’s Billowy Linen Skirt Served As A Preview Of The Week’s Look.

Large parts of Europe and the United States are currently enduring record high temperatures as a result of embarrassingly intense weather. Perhaps you're feeling regretful for getting too hot in too comfortable clothes, but the heat and lack of comfortable places to lie in should remind you that life proceeds, and accomplishments must be achieved in order to reach a certain place. Brad Pitt, too, is facing these literal challenges, and his heroics must remain priority regardless of the weather. On Tuesday, the star was in Berlin for the film preview of his new action flick "Bullet Train" while the city saw highs in the mid-90s. Pitt kept it cool by wearing a head-to-toe linen look featuring a brown skirt, matching jacket and a salmon button-up shirt left attentively half-open. Fans and...
How Should You Handle Your Own Inner Voice?

How Should You Handle Your Own Inner Voice?

What do you say to silence your internal dialogue when you think you have made a mistake, or when someone gives you a compliment? Or, how do you talk to yourself? Both actions reflect your self-talk. Make sure you're not engaging in self-induced suffering. In an interview with Live Science, University of Michigan psychologist and professor Ethan Kross said that the inner voice is like a Swiss Army knife of life. "It doesn't come with a user manual," he said, "and that monologue with yourself can become harsh, self-critical and unhelpful." Healthy self-talk is crucial to our growth by helping us focus our attention, rehearse for difficult situations, understand our lives better and shape our identity. Kross, author of Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness...

Vintage Has Offered The Red Carpet This Summer.

Judging by the outfits on s red carpets this summer, a premiere from 2012 was more relevant than ever. Zendaya, Natalie Portman, and Bella Hadid, stars who are particularly fond of the red carpet, are love with trendy vintage summer pieces. In June, Zendaya wore a strapless dress from Bob Mackie's autumn/winter 1998 collection to the Time 100 Gala. It was styled by Law Roach, who once said, "Vintage and archival dressing isn't a trend for me. . . [It] will always be my first choice when possible." The powerhouse stylist is also responsible for the tiered, balloon-sleeved Chanel autumn/winter 1986 gown that Bella Hadid wore to the Venice Film Festival in May – a striking Karl Lagerfeld-designed piece that was sourced from Sielian Vintage. Celebrities have been wearing vintage on the ...

Star Amal Clooney Is The Queen Of The Party Dress.

Amal Clooney is a barrister by day and a party girl by night. The human rights litigator's renown as a serious professional notwithstanding, she's also well-known among party-goers as a party procrastinator at nighttime. Unable to resist the allure of sequins, jewelry, and gowns, she habitually changes her MaxMara plains into flashy evening attire. In 2015, Amal wore a gold chainmail draped minidress to George Clooney's Casamigos tequila launch at Ushuaïa in Ibiza. This was several years before metallic liquid trends reemerged thanks to Y2K-leaning brands such as Poster Girl and Fannie Schiavoni. Clooney had been doing cowl necklines and slinky cuts way before the Blumarine revival sparked the millennium bug. Two years later, at another Casamigos promo event, Amal wore a strapless mult...

The Paris Haute Couture Week Is The Go-To Time When Hip Fashion See-Thru, But Cheap Clothes Exist Everywhere.

For the super-rich, haute couture is a chance to show off, to splurge, to flex. For everyone else, it's an opportunity to watch the video, get lost in another world, and ogle at the glitter of it all. Haute Couture Week in Paris, where luxury fashions take center stage, savored by young and old alike, brought the city's second annual series of designer collections right up close to the eyewateringly expensive, handcrafted and one-of-a-kind (like the material and inspiration) garments they showcase. Couture fashion is of greater economic value than the regular clothing and accessories that most people own. It is exclusive beyond clothing alone. Couture fashion is a chance to indulge, splurge, flex, and enshrine. Some couture collectors don't even wear the garments that they purcha...

Haute couture fashion week has just begun. From bizarrely constructed floral units to luxury separates in the wildest of fabrications, expect to see spectacular moments that both on and off the catwalk. On the first day, we saw Emma Watson add a streetwear spin to high fashion.   For the Schiaparelli autumn/winter 2022 couture show, actor Eddie Redmayne chose an eye-catching ensemble that mixed luxury and streetwear style.

To balance out the dramatic piece, he threw on a crisp white collared shirt, grey skinny jeans, and a chunky pair of black leather Dr Martens Chelsea boots. For modern couture clients, it’s more abo...

Bella Hadid Has Added A Vintage Roberto Cavalli Dress To Her Clothes Collection.

Last, but certainly not least, supermodel Bella Hadid is the poster girl for vintage, possessing a posh collection spanning from rare Jean-Paul Gaultier to old Chanel. So it comes as no surprise that her attendance at an event for alcohol-free beverage business Kin Euphorics over the weekend included a trunk of memorabilia from the past several decades. Hadid wore a Roberto Cavalli dress in hot pink, featuring a corseted bodice and handkerchief hem to the event. She matched Cavalli's rose print motif with Loewe's cult rose heels from spring/summer 2022. It’s not the first time Hadid has stepped out in vintage Cavalli, which has been enjoying something of a revival of late. The model wore an archival Cavalli gown while attending Lauren Perez’s wedding last year and also opted for a r...

Elvis Presley’s Image Has Been Reimagined As An Asian American Icon.

In a photograph by artist Tommy Kha, the artist dressed as Elvis Presley in a bedazzled low-cut white suit stares at the viewer from behind a table in a retro-looking bright teal kitchen. Just as uncanny is his blank unbreaking gaze and harsh light flattening his figure. Yet, there's a valid justification for this absence of profundity - - Kha isn't really present in the photo. Rather it's a cardboard pattern of a representation of himself, set up between the metal-edged table and blue calfskin seats. The picture was taken by risk - - Kha was towing around the pattern of himself, named "Me as Andy Kaufman as Elvis Minus the Singing," when he was in a Miami prop rental studio; he saw the kitchen set and put it there, viewing the scene as fortunate. "A great deal of my work in the mid...
