Someone gave Harry Styles a fashion award. More
About a year ago, we rounded up “10 fashion trends that need to die right now”--and arguably our biggest vendetta was against then-hugely popular neon (well, and fucking sneaker wedges). Since then, the look has definitely lost its ubiquity on the streets–now, we see the occasional Fluro and that’s about it.
…Maybe because it’s not everywhere anymore, tiring eyeballs wherever it goes, we’ve softened a bit on our stance. Here are 12 red carpet looks that make a surprisingly compelling argument for not banning the shades outright.
Also. Some of the looks here are more neon than others. This was hard. More
While there’s been a lot of talk about the absence of women of color on catwalks, there’s been precious little progress. Agonizing, incremental progress. Black girls are still given token slots on runways (usually two, at most) and the same goes for Asian women.

Yesterday, word broke that serial modelizer Adam Levine had reunited with his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret angel Behati Prinsloo. Not only that, they reunited via an engagement.
Though Prinsloo is well known in fashion circles, she may be a new face to those of us who don’t keep a mental backlog of every Prada exclusive of the last 20 years. More
A very violent game of Photoshop slice and dice with Claire Danes in August’s Vogue. More
They seemed to capture the exact moment that someone made a joke and Danes didn’t find it funny. At all. More
Some middle school students in Shenzen, China, were shocked to see their school uniform shirts hanging in a Prada store. More
*ding ding ding* Fight! More
This is bullshit. More
The Cannes Film Festival ended this weekend (but you were probably BBQ-drunk and binge-watching Arrested Development, yes?). While we love the festival for its reliably risky, glamorous and often downright weird red carpet (see above), all good things must come to an end. Here’s the last of the photocalls, the premieres, and looks from the star-studded Closing Ceremony. More
