• Muslims Celebrating Eid During Pandemic Show Off Their Gorgeous Fashions

    Socially distanced celebrations aren’t ideal for anyone. But it’s clear they can still be glamorous.This weekend marked the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which celebrates the end of the month of Ramadan. This year, the last fast of the month ended on Saturday evening, and Eid began on Sunday morning.A typical Eid — one that’s not in the middle of a global pandemic — would involve a morning mosque service, followed by a big celebration at people’s ho

    On a Sunday five weeks into social distancing, I found myself staring at the handful of creams and oils I had left in my hair-care closet, and wondered just how many days they’d last me. I’ve long dedicated lazy Sundays to my hair-care routine — the “wash day,” equal parts dreadful and glorious thanks to the intricate textures of kinky, coily Black hair. But had I known the COVID-19 crisis would last longer than a month, closing Black hair-care stores provincewide,
  • How To Find Your Own Personal Style

    Fashion should be fun and accessible, a way to marry beauty with function, and a means of self-expression.But let’s face it: fashion can also be expensive, exclusionary and frankly, sometimes, kind of confusing. (Why, oh why are tops with shoulder cutouts a thing, and why haven’t they gone away yet?)If you’ve never thought much about your own style before, but it’s something you want to develop now, you’re certainly not alone. Many of the people who hire stylists ar

    The VMA is a place where over-the-top is the norm. Sixteen years ago, it’s where Britney Spears and Madonna made out; ten years ago, the now-infamous Taylor Swift/Kanye West drama originated; last year, Ariana and Pete went all PDA, three months into their relationship and two months before their breakup.So, given that that’s what goes on during the show, it stands to reason that the red carpet is a bit of a free-for-all.
