This Is the Most Popular T-Shirt at Couture Fashion Week

When it comes to statement pieces and timely fashion, perhaps no other piece is making its case quite as loudly as this one is: a simple white tee with the even simpler message, “WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS.” Leave it to Dior’s new artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri to hit us with the PSA when she sent it down the spring 2017 runway—and for her debut collection as the first woman to ever head the house of Christian Dior, might I add. And given last weekend’s Women’s Marches that took place all over the globe, well, it’s clear this is more than just a statement—this is a declaration. This is a call to arms. This is feminism, and it’s taking over street style at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.

Amidst a sea of sleek leather and plush fur dominating the Paris street style set is the ever-so laid-back, cotton white tee. You can spot the powerful message on models as part of their off-duty uniforms before and after shows and on Insta-famous influencer Chiara Ferragni under a slick blazer and tulle skirt.

Quickly reigning as Couture Week’s street-style gem, the tee was inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s highly acclaimed book-length essay We Should All be Feminists and TEDx Talk of the same name.

The Dior tee made its public debut at the Women’s March in LA when Natalie Portman wore it while giving her powerful speech on women’s rights.

On the eve of #MariaGraziaChiuri’s first couture show for Dior, our muse Natalie Portman stood up for the rights of women everywhere while wearing our T-shirt inspired by our friend Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s powerfully resonant essay ‘We Should All be Feminists’.

When Katy Perry Dresses for the Theater, She Sparkles

If Katy Perry is any indication—and we think she is, “going-out tops” are officially back. We had heard rumors of the re-emergening trend but Perry just sealed the deal.

Perry has spent much of the week promoting her new single with Migos called “Bon Appetit” by doing wacky things like handing out cherry pies to fans in Times Square and baking a pie for a video with Tasty.

VIDEO: 10 of Katy Perry’s Best Instagrams

But when she’s not serving treats, she is serving looks. The style savvy blonde wore a shimmering gold mock neck tank top to The Music Box to see the smash hit musical Dear Evan Hansen on her night off. She kept the rest of her look cool in the New York almost-summer heat with PVC-embellished culottes, which she accessorized with silver sandals, chunky gold rings, a white watch, and a quilted chrome bag.

Since switching to a lighter hair color, Perry has been playing with her makeup and opting for softer hues. She finished her look with pastel pink lips, blue eye winged liner and full brows.

Perry’s food-related promos are in perfect correlation with the lyrics from her new single. Those cherry pies were right in line with her lyric, “Want to keep your satisfied / I’m the world’s best cherry pie / I am on the menu.” Knowing Perry, anything she serves from style to food is going to be on trend and piping hot.

Jessica Alba Got Faux Freckles at Tory Burch—Plus 6 Other Things to Know About the Show

New York Fashion Week starts early and ends late, and if you don’t have the stamina (or an IV drip of caffeine), then the struggle can get real pretty quickly. But not even the most staunchly morning-averse night owl would miss Tory Burch’s 9 a.m. show—one of the earliest on the calendar. Happy and vibrant, her shows never fail to deliver saturated colors and bold prints, making it arguably one of the best ways to start the day. Factor in a cool new location and an even cooler front row, and there’s no question about it. Keep reading to find out everything that happened at Tory Burch’s spring 2017 show.

1. After seasons of staging her shows at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, the designer switched things up and went for the brand sparkling new Whitney Museum location that opened last year in the Meatpacking District.

2. Tory Burch outfitted the models in matching Tory Sport track suits during prep time.

3. Honest Beauty makeup was used to give models a natural glow, complete with faux freckles, which were drawn on with the brand’s True Velvet Eyeliner in Cocoa—a look that Jessica Alba also had done backstage prior to the show. “Look,” she told Beauterage Fashion Director Melissa Rubini in the front row. “Freckles!”

Who wouldn’t love a little touch-up before the show? @honest_beauty’s @jessicaalba joined all the models backstage at @toryburch’s #SS17 show, where makeup artist @diane.kendal used the brand’s True Velvet Eyeliner in Cocoa to give the beauties faux freckles. ✨💄🌸 #NYFW

4. Beyoncé’s protégés Chloe and Halle Bailey (aka the coolest girls around) also took their seats in the front row, both clad in Tory Sport gear.

How could you not be obsessed with @chloeandhalle? The duo sat front row at @ToryBurch this morning, naturally. ✨📸: @Beauteragemelissa #NYFW

5. The show opened with “Massachusetts” by the Bee Gees, but quickly segued into Beyoncé, at which point, Chloe and Halle started dancing in their seats. “The playlist was amazing—everything was poppin’,” Chloe said afterwards, while Halle began to sing: “They don’t love you like I do.”

6. Taylor Hill and Hailey Baldwin were among the big-name models cast in the show.

7. The spring 2017 looks included darling preppy cardigans, sweeping split-seamed pants, and a fun color palette of kelly green, bubblegum pink, and bright orange. “The collection was absolutely amazing—I love the colors she uses, the oranges were so beautiful, it [was] fun and flirty, and different at the same time, which I love,” Chloe said. And their favorite look? “The two-piece that was orange,” they both said simultaneously, laughing.

Serena Williams’s $99 One-Piece and 5 More Chic Maternity Swimsuits

On Wednesday morning, we all freaked when Serena Williams announced that she was expecting her first child with her fiancé and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Her growing baby bump looked so adorable in the Snapchat post, but what really kept our attention was her bright, yellow one-piece swimsuit. It turns out the expectant mother was rocking a custom design from the brand La Blanca. We haven’t been able to find Williams’s exact color, but you can shop the same style in black here for only $99.

The side-button design is not a maternity swimsuit, but it got us thinking about how tough it can be to find chic options for expectant moms. There’s a bunch of frumpy styles that aren’t too flattering. But that’s why we decided to round up our favorite stylish one-pieces below.

Where to Buy the Exact Cropped Jeans Celebrities Are Wearing

If you’re feeling unsure about a certain denim silhouette, consider the same design cropped. It basically solves every dilemma you can think up: Hate going to the tailor? A purposely brief inseam means you won’t have to. Worried about shoe options? Heels and flats both work with a shorter length—and it looks amazing with ankle boots (shout out to the Hadid sisters pictured below).

Even better, a few extra inches of exposed lower leg has a way of making everyone seem longer and leaner (particularly so if you add in a higher waistline, too). See for yourself with the 10 celeb-vetted takes on the ankle-baring jeans here—from kicky baby bells to relaxed ‘90s-inspired styles—and shop each exact look for yourself.

Best Fitness Tracker: Fitbit Alta HR

Thanks to Fitbit’s latest offering, you can now find out how many steps you walk each day and how many hours you spend in REM sleep. In March, the wearables brand—which essentially dominates the field in terms of fitness trackers that are both efficient and stylish—debuted its newest model, the Alta HR. An update to Fitbit’s previous Alta model, the HR features automatic exercise recognition and sleep stage tracking. It’s the brand’s slimmest design to feature continuous PurePulse heart rate tracking, which was previously only available in Fitbit’s bulkier Charge 2 wristband ($130), Blaze fitness watch ($150), and Surge GPS watch ($250). With a sleek design that delivers smartphone notifications right to your tracker’s screen, the Alta HR is also a more desirable fitness tracker than the brand’s screen-less Flex 2 ($60) (and it has much more to offer than an old-school clip-on device, such as the Fitbit One).

BUY: Fitbit Alta HR, $130; fitbit.com

In addition to its impressive round-the-clock tracking of your activities, the wristband is small enough that it won’t bulk up a cute outfit (and it’s comfortable enough for sleeping). The standard stainless steel model comes with your choice of four water-resistant band colors; for another $50 you can get one of two limited-edition trackers, such as the rose gold style (pictured). Interchangeable leather straps and a stainless steel bracelet can be easily swapped out for the classic style, and accessories that fit the original Alta also work with the HR model (in case you’ve been eying the Public School bracelet ($295) or Simply Vera Vera Wang’s studded wrap-around design, $80). When it comes to updating your wearable game, consider this your friendly “reminder to move.”

Wins for: Appearance and functionality

Noteworthy features:

  • Heart rate tracking
  • Sleep stage tracking
  • Automatic exercise recognition (running, elliptical, bike)
  • In-display smartphone notifications
  • 7-day battery life
  • Interchangeable wristbands
