Watch Celeb Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett Recreate Looks From This Year’s Met Gala

By Souzan Michael

Celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett has an impressive celebrity clientele list that includes Gigi and Bella Hadid, Emma Stone, Margot Robbie and Rachel McAdams, just to name a few. That also means that aside from events and campaigns, Scarlett works on some of the industry’s biggest nights, including the Met Gala.

This year, Scarlett did model Lily Aldridge’s hair —a beautiful chignon with wispy pieces in the front.

We caught up with Bryce Scarlett and asked him to recreate both Aldridge’s look and Jennifer Lopez’s slicked back, wet hair look, which btw, is totally easy to DIY.

Watch the video below to watch Scarlett in action!

8 Times Celebrity Mother-Daughter Duos Wore Nearly the Same Outfit

Some say it’s inevitable: We all end up a lot like our mothers. Whether due to nurture or nature, it’s hard not to unconsciously pick up a few habits formed by the most important women in our lives. And the most blatant proof is when we step out of the house in an outfit that look an awfully lot like something Mom would wear. It’s not just us—celebrities do it, too. And we have proof.

With Mother’s Day on the brain (it’s this Sunday, for those who still need a brunch reservation) we found some of the most high-profile cases of when mothers and daughters dressed almost identical. And the most surprising part is that 20, 30, even 40 years separate the matching ensembles. If you think the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, allow us to convince you otherwise with the celebrity mother-daughter duos ahead.

There's one word to describe Diana Ross's style: Iconic.
And clearly her daughter has taken notes.
Jenner's spaghetti-strap dress feels so very '90s.
And here's proof that style is cyclical.
The Hollywood golden girl knew how to wear metallic.
Perhaps it's genetic.
Tina Knowles Lawson is the OG stylist, costume designer, and #1 supporter of her daughter, Beyoncé, not to mention an inspiration in her own right. But turns out, not even she is immune to the star power...
In a flip-the-script moment, Beyoncé wore this feathery flock a year before her mom did.
A pre-Drapper James Reese Witherspoon.
Her daughter (but more like twin) recreated the look with a bit more sparkle.
Some people say leopard is a timeless print.
Those people are Dakota Johnson and her mother, Melanie Griffin.
Flower dresses, in the '90s? Perhaps not groundbreaking, but absolutely charming nonetheless.
As they still are today.

Need a Mother's Day gift you know will be mom-approved? We've got you covered.

This Newly-Opened Exhibit Is Your Crash Course on the Legacy of Azzedine Alaïa

By Isabel Slone

The late Azzedine Alaïa clocked in at around five feet tall, but his influence on fashion towered over his diminutive height. The Tunisian designer, who passed away last November, is being honoured in an exhib­ition at the Design Museum in London, England, opening today.

Alaïa himself hand-picked over 60 of the garments that will be on display, all of which demonstrate his mastery of the art of tailoring and the witchcraft of flattering women’s bodies. His designs highlighted nipped-in waists, strong shoulders and narrow hips and almost single-handedly ushered in the era of supermodel killer curves. Despite his strong association with the power silhouettes of the ’80s, Alaïa’s pieces still retain their influence, and his slinky designs have found modern devotees in Victoria Beckham, Diane Kruger and Kim Kardashian West. Thanks to this exhibit, the King of Cling reigns on.

Canada’s Top 100 Mother’s Day Brunch Spots

By Meghan McKenna

The best way to show your mom you appreciate her is over a morning meal. But if you aren’t up to cooking a six-course breakfast in bed, that’s okay: there’s still time to score the perfect reservation. OpenTable has done the dirty work for us, and have compiled a list of Canada’s top 100 spots for quality time over mimosas and eggs.

“Mother’s Day is our biggest group dining day of the year, and brunch, with its wide array of menu options and kid-friendly hours, is the meal that checks a lot of boxes for families gathering to celebrate the moms in their lives,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. “We’re thrilled to highlight the restaurants that are offering memorable daytime dining experiences for this special day – or any weekend day.”

From downtown farm-to-table fare to vegan eats with a waterfront view, this list offers something every mom will enjoy. (And more importantly, we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy it to.)

Anna Wintour Just Declared Her Favorite Met Gala Look

Anna Wintour has spoken. In a new segment on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the Vogue editor-in-chief revealed her favorite outfit of the entire Met Gala—and it's not what you'd expect.

"My very favorite was Father James Martin, who is a Jesuit priest who was advising us on the exhibition," Wintour told Colbert. "He came in his appropriate robes, and apparently all night people were coming up to him and saying 'I really like the fact you came as a sexy priest; you look so authentic.' So that was my favorite." How amazing is that?

Martin then responded with the best tweet ever: "Thanks Ms. Wintour! For the record: black suit by Jos. A. Bank, clerical shirt by Almy Clergy Apparel." Good to know. Scroll down to watch her full interview and see Father James Martin's look, as well as the other two looks she discussed with Colbert on the show.

I've Probably Refreshed the Page for This Madewell Item 50 Times

So it's mid-May, I've moved on from spring, and I'm officially in full-on summer shopping mode. Five days ago, while perusing Madewell's latest batch of new arrivals (of which there is so much good stuff), I spotted a new ruffle-adorned denim jumpsuit with a waiting list that was available for purchase with a ship date later this month. I'm always hesitant to buy pieces that are on a waiting list (because the keyword here is "wait"), but I decided it was cute enough to be worth it. I went back the next day to buy it in my size and it was sold out, along with basically every other size. Madewell had already labeled it as a best-selling item before it was even available, so I guess I wasn't alone in my admiration of the jumpsuit.

So what's so great about it? It's stretchy (comfort!), flattering (thanks to the cropped-flare silhouette), and it's the perfect canvas for basically every tee, accessory, and pair of shoes I plan on wearing this summer. Since then, I've refreshed the item's page more times than I can count in hopes that Madewell will add more stock or someone will cancel their order (hey, it happens!), and no such luck. But don't worry, as I don't give up easily.

Check out the ultra-popular jumpsuit below and shop other Madewell new arrivals I'm stalking.

Available in sizes 00 to 16.
These are the most flattering white jeans I've encountered lately. Available in sizes 23 to 32.
So into this happy color. Available in sizes XXS to XXL.
Strawberry season is the best season. Available in sizes XXS to XXL.
You won't believe how soft and comfortable this is. Available in sizes XS to L.
I can never resist a good boxy tee. Available in sizes XXS to XXL.

The Prices for Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Have Just Been Released

By Jamie Hoholuk

Rihanna fans won’t have to wait much longer for the singer’s debut lingerie line Savage x Fenty, set for international release tomorrow. The line will contain 90 pieces of lingerie, sleepwear and accessories, including four capsule collections, according to an exclusive from Vogue.

Sup, bra? | @badgalriri rocking the T-shirt bra #OnTheReg 👙 | MAY.11.2018

A post shared by SAVAGE X FENTY (@savagexfenty) on

The first collection — On the Reg — is for everyday wear, boasting underwear and t-shirt bras in every shade of nude. U Cute brings femininity to line with cute, lacy pieces. Things get sexier with the introduction Damn, where shoppers can buy garters, bodysuits and rompers. Those who are looking for a more risqué take on lingerie, like cup-less bodysuits and half-cut bras, should go straight to the Black Widow capsule.

Everything about this line is set to be all-inclusive, including the price. Nothing is over $100 USD, with the higher end pieces like corsets and jumpsuits ranging from $69-$99. Bras start at $39 and top off at $59. Everyday items like underwear and t-shirt bras go for $14.50-$34. Finally, Savage x Fenty handcuffs will cost buyers anywhere from $18 to $29.

Furthering the inclusive nature of the brand, a wide range of sizes is offered for all pieces. Bras are available in sizes 32A to 44DD, with all other garments from XS to 3XL. (Though the line has already received scrutiny for not offering larger cup sizes.) The line will be available online on the official site, shipping internationally to 210 countries. A $50 membership is also available for fans who want early access, as well as the rights to exclusive deals, limited-edition items and free two-day shipping.

The line hopes to take its body positive values to change the way women wear lingerie. What was once something that was purchased and worn for the pleasure of others is turning into a new experience. “I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light.” said Rihanna to Vogue. “You don’t have to stick to one personality with lingerie; it’s fun to play around. You can be cute and playful one week and a black widow next week. You can take risks with lingerie.”

How to Get the Most Out of Your Formal Dress Post-Prom

Prom is great, yet returning home only to hang your dress up after a magical night is definitely a tad depressing—not just because the night is over, but because you will likely never wear it again. That sad notion stops here. Whether it's your prom dress or a formal dress you bought for a special occasion, we sought out to find alternatives for that stunning frock that don't involve hanging it back in your closet and never seeing it again. 

Even if the dress is floor-length, mini, or strapless, there is more than one way for you to use what you've got and turn this once-hopeless situation into an opportunity to be resourceful. Styling it for different occasions is one way and donating it to a good cause is another, but whichever you choose, you'll be getting way more use out of your dream dress than you ever thought possible. 

Keep scrolling to see the many ways you can get use out of your formal dress once the night is over.

Having your elegant dress shortened by a tailor is not only totally doable, it also completely changes the the overall aesthetic, quickly turning it into a flirty summer dress. Pair with a denim jacket, straw hat, and bright heeled sandals and you'll basically have a new dress for your next vacation.  Dress: Topshop. Style It With: A denim jacket, straw hat, and strappy sandals. 
Toughen up a feminine formal dress by layering a T-shirt underneath and accessorizing it with these edgy ballet flats and a wrap-around choker. Trust us, with these add-ons, no one will even recognize your dress.  Dress: Mango. Style it with: A plain T-shirt, ballet flats, and a trendy accessory. 
Even this pink strapless dress can be made casual with these high-top sneakers. We advise accessorizing wisely with this strapless silhouette—a printed neckerchief and leather backpack will do just the trick by covering up a little more of your upper body.  Dress: Tibi. Style It With: Sneakers, a backpack, and a scarf. 
There are several organizations today that take used prom dresses and donate them to women who cannot afford to buy a dress on their own. If you know that you'll never wear your dress again, why not give it to someone who will appreciate it just as much, if not more, than you did? Dress: Rachel Zoe.
Even the most embellished of formal dresses, like this one here, can be made professional enough for the office. Slip into a classic blazer, sleek pumps, and a polished handbag for an outfit that looks like it was meant for the workplace all along.  Dress: Tory Burch. Style it with: A blazer, polished bag, and pumps. 
Repeating formal attire can seem like a total faux pas, but you have to admit, you would love any excuse to wear that stunning dress again. A spring or summer wedding is a good one. Style the dress with subtle and light accessories like these nude heels and mini clutch for the perfect wedding guest look.  Dress: Self-Portrait. Style It With: Nude heels, a clutch, and elegant jewelry. 
Available in size S.
Available in size M to L.
Available in sizes S.
Available in size M.
Available in sizes S to M.

Hudson’s Bay Company Announces Partnership with Meghan Markle BFF Jessica Mulroney

By Isabel Slone

Hudson’s Bay Company has announced that Jessica Mulroney, the woman whom the Daily Mail suggested “might outsparkle Ms. Markle” at the upcoming Royal Wedding, will have an “expanded role” with the company.

Mulroney is married to former Canadian Idol host and Brian Mulroney’s son, Ben Mulroney, and has worked as a stylist, consultant, influencer, TV personality, and wedding planner. She had previously partnered with HBC to help launch the Kleinfeld bridal line into Canada in 2014. Mulroney’s new official title within the company is Fashion and Bridal Specialist. “Hudson’s Bay is Canada’s fashion authority and I am so excited to expand my relationship with the company,” said Mulroney in a statement.

“As we continue to drive our fashion position in Canada, Jessica is a valued and important partner of Hudson’s Bay” said Alison Coville, President of Hudson’s Bay. “Working with Jessica in this new capacity gives us the opportunity to share her expert knowledge and style with our customers and ultimately provide a unique shopping experience with a compelling point of view.”

In addition to PR, social media, and events, Mulroney will act as the spokesperson for CORE Life, a new lifestyle brand launching exclusively at Hudson’s Bay for Fall 2018.

It seems the Meghan Markle Effect has expanded beyond her wardrobe to include her inner social circle, making her close friends just as hot commodities as the labels she wears. This is Shine Theory at it’s best, folks.
