Should You Wear Leggings as Pants? Priyanka Chopra Weighs In

Joseph Altuzarra, the master of sensible shirtdresses and pencil skirts cut with dangerously sexy thigh-high slits, has given us yet another wonderfully contrast-happy collection to rave about. For spring 2017, the designer took a youthful, Chiquita-esque turn with cutesy sequin-embroidered cherries, pineapples, lemons, and blueberries, but anchored the fruit medley with python, tailored blazers, and restricting pencils. “I wanted the collection to feel happy, vibrant, and erotically charged,” read the brand’s show notes.

But the best thing to come out of the show? Celebrity endorsement from Priyanka Chopra (our August cover girl!), who sat front row (outfitted in a bubblegum pink rib-knit dress, courtesy of Altuzarra, of course) and is already a fan of next spring’s offering. “I thought it was beautiful—it was feminine and pretty,” she enthuses after the show. “I love the florals, and I especially love the cherry-print stockings. And I also loved the little chiffon dresses—so flirty and lovely.”

Eventually, talk of next season’s fashion fell back to present-day trends, which of course, ended with her very honest (read: refreshing) opinion on four of the most popular street-style trends we’ve seen around:

Wearing leggings as pants: “I like leggings, as long as they’re not weird and crotchet-y.”

Treating your bra as a shirt: “No. I’m a little shy, and I’d prefer a shirt. I think a bra should be kept hidden, layered underneath.”

Having an oversized shirt double as a dress: “Love it—as long as I have a belt to cinch.”

Eschewing bras altogether: “If it’s in the vicinity of my bedroom, then yes—or, as long as people don’t know.”

Kylie Jenner Is the Spitting Image of Kim in a Sports Bra and Bike Shorts

As we’ve pointed out innumerable times, whether you personally agree with her particular all-sheer-everything aesthetic or not, Kim Kardashian West is undeniably a fashion tastemaker. She’s the reason we can now see stars ranging from Katy Perry to Chrissy Metz rocking latex dresses, not to mention all those lace-up corsets that can suddenly be spotted strapped over the T-shirts of Emily Ratajkowski and Ashley Graham. And now it seems Kardashian West’s sartorial prowess isn’t just being felt by her fellow Hollywood A-listers, but by her own family as well, as her youngest sister Kylie Jenner stepped out in a look that could have come straight out of her closet.

While Kardashian West has been the queen of the reality TV world for about a decade now thanks to the family’s long-running show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jenner is now poised to usurp her crown, debuting the first trailer for her very own spin-off show, Life of Kylie. The Lip Kit entrepreneur was spotted strolling around Hollywood on Wednesday filming scenes for her new show and wearing an ensemble befitting her new leading lady status.

If those images for Jenner’s new lipstick collaboration collection with her older sister weren’t proof enough that she’s practically her sister’s doppelgänger, her latest outfit should leave no doubt. For the taping of her show, the technicolor wig aficionado donned a scoop-neck black sports bra that appears to be made by Yeezy, a pair of P.E. Nation bike shorts with red and blue stripes down the side, black Yeezy sneakers, flattop black sunglasses, and a gold pendant necklace similar to Kardashian West’s Yeezy bling, wearing her hair in the Cher-inspired style, straight and down to her waist just like her superstar sibling. Add to that the fact that the 19-year-old is rumored to be dating a famous rapper and it’s surely only a matter of time before she releases her very own book replete with her most artistic selfies.

See the Best Looks from the Loewe Fall 2017 Runway Show 

The Loewe 2017 Fall runway show was a display of brilliant manipulation, incorporating varied textures, colors, and forms to result in pieces that were femininely edgy. Floor length dresses were cut and deconstructed, flirty fabrics like satin were mixed with masculine corduroy, and multiple fabrics merged into single pieces to create new life to statment pieces. Below, our favorite looks from the show.

See the Hottest Photos from Backstage at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is upon us, and while the runway vibe is sexy as ever, the atmosphere backstage is far more relaxed. “This is the one time of the year that we actually got to hang out,” Alessandra Ambrosio told Beauterage of spending time with her fellow Angels.

“We had four days to hang out and it really feels like a girls’ trip or when you’re in college with your friends. There are no boys around. It’s only girls and we can have fun and not worry about anything else.”

Between getting primped together and taking selfies backstage, Stella Maxwell totally agrees. “I think everyone’s really excited. I can see the smiles on everyone’s faces. We’re all like gossiping,” she told Beauterage. “It’s nice to just hang out with our friends.”

While in years past the girls all sported similar-length waves, this year they’re wearing their natural hair, and Kendall Jenner is so on board. “The cool thing about this show is that they wanted everyone to feel really good and they didn’t mind the girls looking more different than each other than they did in previous years,” Jenner said. “It’s cool. It adds a new twist to it.”

While she was excited about the new hairstyles, she was anxious about wearing her lingerie. “I’m so excited, and nervous. Last year I had two looks that were very covered in certain spots, but this year I have one look that is kind of covered and one that is pretty exposed so I’m a little nervous about that!” Jenner told us.

To that, sixteen-time VS Fashion Show vet Ambrosio has some advice: “Enjoy, it goes really fast. In the blink of an eye it’s over,” she said.

Best 360 Camera: Insta360 Nano

360 cameras are basically time machines. Because they simultaneously shoot in every direction, replaying their footage on a computer, phone, or with a VR headset endows you with a Groundhog Day-like ability to step back into a scene, with a new opportunity to look around and notice things you may have missed the first time. If you want to seriously inspect everybody’s expression the second you broke the big news, this is for you.

It’s also a nascent space, with improvements in resolution, form factor, and price coming at an astonishing pace. To test the current batch of 360 cameras, we teamed up with Justin Johnson, founder of 360 Buzz and a veteran 360 filmmaker. All the models we tested have their merits: the Samsung Gear 360 ($183) is great if you have a recent Samsung phone to pair it with, while the Ricoh Theta ($300) rocks at static 360 photos. Still, for most casual users, the clear winner is currently the Insta360 Nano. It doesn’t produce the highest resolution videos, nor does it possess the most features; but its insanely portable design and pick-up-and-play ease-of-use make it a keeper.

BUY: Insta360 Nano, $186; jet.com

VIDEO: LuMee’s LED Light Phone Case

The Insta360 Nano is basically a smartphone case that works by slipping onto an iPhone and transforming a device you already have on you into a powerful production tool. As the old saying goes: “The best camera is the one you have on you.”

Wins for: Portability

Noteworthy features:

  • Easy to carry with you at all times
  • Plugs into your iPhone, making it easy to share footage.

J.Lo Makes Waves with Her Soft Curls on Date Night with A-Rod

Jennifer Lopez is giving us major Jenny from the Block vibes with her latest throwback-inspired date night look.

The Latina star took a break from her sleek go-to blowout of late and opted for romantic natural curls as she stepped out with her athlete beau Alex Rodriguez while heading to N.Y.C.’s Cipriani for a bite to eat on Sunday.

Proving that love is really the best accessory, the glowing hitmaker looked happier than ever as she linked her arm with the baseball legend and turned heads by pairing her natural tousled locks with large hoop earrings.

The “Ain’t Your Mama” songstress also took a leaf from her boyfriend’s dapper dinnertime look and twinned in a matching navy-and-black inspired ensemble, choosing a pair of cropped high-waist navy drawstring pants cinched with a black tube belt to add a stylish flair to a black tank top and a cozy cream-and-black cardigan. Sleek black booties finished off J.Lo’s chic date night ensemble.

Rodriguez—all smiles as he walked arm in arm with his love—also opted for navy slacks and a dark V-neck sweater, which he dressed up with a checkered black-and-white dress shirt and brown dress shoes to prove once again that he and the singer really are the most fashionable pair on the block.
