Rihanna’s Miniature Carry-On Luggage: A Big Mood

If there was any doubt that Rihanna—the singer, songwriter, designer, muse, actress, etc.— has got us all wrapped around her finger, let us please bring your attention to her right-hand pointer. The artist landed at JFK Airport yesterday, just days before her anticipated Savage x Fenty show for New York Fashion Week. From her hand hung what we can only assume is her carry-on luggage: a handbag resembling a New York City yellow taxi. It was about the size of her palm.

The bag, from Delvaux’s Les Miniatures Big Apple Collection, dangled from Rihanna’s manicured fingers and accented an outfit that’s actually not too far from what the rest of the world wears on an airplane: sweatpants and a cut-off hoodie. In photos she’s seen smiling and looking happy, which is more than many of us can say when making our way out of a crowded airport terminal.


But Rihanna is not your average flyer—nor average anyone, for that matter. Still, people had questions (and guesses as to what was in that tiny bag).

Though this is not the first time Rihanna’s dabbled in the micro bag trend, this latest style seems especially surprising in the hands of such megastar talent. One who’s on the verge of a huge New York Fashion Week moment. One who, rumor has it, will release a new album by end of year. One who’s recently been named the world’s richest female musician. And one who, well, just got off a plane.

And yet, in this unbothered, unencumbered, big mood, there’s so much hiding up Rihanna’s sleeve at this moment, she doesn’t even need a bag. The one she’s holding is just a reminder that she has it secured.

Ellen DeGeneres Has a Sweet Story About Her Visit With Meghan, Harry, and Baby Archie

Ellen DeGeneres paid a visit to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in London over the summer, and she has the—no joke—sweetest story about baby Archie.

The talk show host told her studio audience about the visit on Monday, September 9. “They are so amazing—the cutest couple and so down to earth,” DeGeneres said of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. “I hate it—I see them get attacked, and it’s not fair. They’re just two of the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. They’re doing so much good work.”

DeGeneres is no doubt referring to the wave of criticism Meghan Markle and Prince Harry received last week for chartering a private jet on their vacation, which some view as contradicting their stance on environmentalism. DeGeneres was one of the first celebrities to come to the couple’s defense. “Portia and I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation…. Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better,” she wrote on Instagram August 19.

What DeGeneres said on her talk show this week echoes that sentiment. “Portia and I talked to them about all the conservation they’re doing for wildlife,” she said. “They’re doing all this work in Botswana for elephants, and I love that. And they like what I’m doing for the gorillas in Rwanda. So we’re all going to do something together.”

Then she told the anecdote to end all anecdotes about meeting Archie for the first time. “I can’t tell you how sweet they are, but the most important thing is I got to hold little Archie, the baby. I fed Archie. I held Archie.”

To be a fly on that wall, am I right? Watch Ellen DeGeneres explain more about what happened in the video, above. Of course, some A+ baby jokes are involved.

Tortoiseshell Nails Are Fall’s Coolest Manicure Trend for 2019

Starbucks has already put Pumpkin Spice Lattes back on the menu, so that can only mean one thing: Fall is here. While you might be tucking away your bikini in favor of chunky sweaters, don’t put away your sunglasses just yet. Your favorite summer accessory can live on through fall—at least, on your nails—with the season’s coolest nail trend.

Tortoiseshell nails are popping up left and right on the runways and on Instagram. While summer brought a selection of crazy colorful nail art like tie dye and confetti, fall is shaping up to be all about neutrals. Sure, muted colors aren’t quite as eye-catching as neon, but the textured pattern on this manicure is what makes it stand out. The callback to tortoiseshell sunglasses gives it a bit of a retro feel, yet the neutral palette and high shine give it a modern spin.

“What’s great about this look is that it’s easy enough to try at home, as there is room for error and it will still look good,” says Rita Pinto, founder of the nail salon Vanity Projects in New York and Miami. She adds that the key to this look is making sure the polish stays sheer to get a more realistic texture. “At the salon, we would do this in gel to encapsulate the layers of color to capture the translucency of the tortoiseshell and finish with a high-gloss top coat.”

Sigourney Nunez, OPI’s North American education manager and nail artist, says, “It can get easily confused for a different animal print” if you keep the shades too opaque. In order to get the sheer look, Nunez recommends creating a custom shade by tinting your base coat with a yellow polish (try OPI Sun, Sea, and Sand in My Pants), and applying two coats to prepped nails. Then, create another shade by mixing your top coat with a greige like OPI You Don’t Know Jacques. Using a nail-art brush, apply that thinned-out color in blob-like pattens. “Don’t get stressed about precision,” she says. “This look is inspired by a pattern seen in nature, and nature isn’t perfect—it’s simply beautiful as it is. So just have fun.” Repeat this step with a black polish thinned with your top coat, and continue to layer the patten, switching between colors, until you’re happy with the results.

While the pattern itself is cute enough on its own, it also acts as a great base for more intricate nail art. How about a little heart or an update on the French manicure? Pile on the gold for an expensive look, or opt for an accent nail if you’re more on the minimal side. Scroll on for some of our favorite examples of tortoiseshell nails for every style.

Tortoiseshell nails made their big debut at the Luar show last season.

For a full lewk, match your nails to your sunglasses.

Rita Remark, Essie’s global lead educator, recommends mixing your thinned-out shades on a watercolor palette from the craft store. She likes to use Essie polish in Hay There for her base, and Licorice and Wild Nude for her blotches.

Nail artist Hannah Lee has a bit of a different approach. She starts with a sheer camel, like Sally Hansen’s Bare Dare, and then adds a layer of top coat to add depth before going in with the brown blobs. After applying black blobs (she uses a toothpick or bobby pin instead of a brush), she finishes with another coat of the sheer camel before applying a top coat. All the layers of polish will really make the texture pop.

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’s Relationship: A Complete Timeline

They may have started out as good friends, but these days Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are one of pop music’s most talked-about couples.

While there are some naysayers online who think it’s all about publicity, the two singers appear to being going strong after a sexy performance at the MTV VMAs and some well-documented PDA. Now fans are analyzing every move they make and every lyric they sing to try to learn more about the relationship they call #Shawmila.

But how did we get here? Let’s take a look back at how it all began.

July 2014: Cabello (as a member of Fifth Harmony) and Mendes meet while they are both opening acts for Austin Mahone’s tour. The singers recently discussed that time with V Magazine. “I remember thinking we met on the Austin Mahone tour, and I remember I wanted to hang out with you, but you were always on the tour bus, just learning guitar,” Cabello said. Mendes replied, “Yeah, that was me. I didn’t talk to anybody. You were the only person that talked to me. Like, you were the only one of everybody on that tour who would say words to me. Actually, I think if we go into our DMs or something, there’s a photo from the day we met, I think.

“And I thought you were out of your mind,” he continued. “I’d be in my bus where no one could see me. I’d be looking through the window and I’d see you, like, flying around on a scooter and jumping and doing cartwheels. I’d be like, She’s insane. Close the window and go to sleep.”

April 2015: Mendes plays a game of “Lips, Wife, or Leave It” and opts for Cabello as the “wife” over Chloe Grace Moretz and Jade Thirwall from Little Mix. “Yeah, she rocks,” he said.

November 2015: Cabello and Mendes drop a song called “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which sparks dating rumors. “We were just backstage hanging out,” Mendes told Rolling Stone of how they wrote the song while on Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour. “I pulled out my guitar and we were just messing around, not really thinking about writing a song.”

Katie Holmes Is a Whole Fall Fashion Mood

We’ve all seen, or have lived through, the old go-through-a-breakup-and-get-a-risky-haircut move. But heading into fall 2019, Katie Holmes is embodying whatever the opposite of that tired cliché is. And a viral cashmere bra is really just the start.

A few weeks ago, just as the weather in New York dipped to a mild 70-something degrees, Holmes caused an all-out frenzy when images of her hailing a taxi in a matching cashmere bra-and-cardigan set went viral. Instagram comments flooded with support, headlines praised the unexpected look, and Holmes’s $520 Khaite bra sold out (along with its coordinating $1540 sweater). Like that, a barley-colored knit was the sexiest piece of news—not her relationship status.

But when you zoom in on Holmes’s looks over the past several weeks, it becomes clear that the nonchalant confidence a knit bra conjures is not something the actress suddenly decided to try out, like bangs or balayage: She’s been living it. We’re talking bright Gucci logos, super oversized jackets, and subtly glamorous T-shirt looks that embody an entire fall attitude. It’s one that honors our Hot Girl Summers and our love of all things cozy, layered all at once. Really, what more could one ask for fall? Behold some of her best recent looks, below.

Kate Middleton Rewore Her Dress From the Sussex Wedding Rehearsal Dinner—And It’s on Major Sale

The first day of school typically means big excitement, some jitters, and an all-new outfit to mark the occasion. For students, that is. For parents, like Kate Middleton who dropped Prince George and Princess Charlotte for their first day this morning, she recycled a look that’s very familiar for any Sussex Wedding fans.

Dressed in a classic, button-down shirt dress with a pink floral pattern, Middleton held her daughter’s hand as they approached Thomas’s Battersea in London this morning.

The dress is a Michael Michael Kors piece that was first spotted on the Duchess of Cambridge in May of last year—when she attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markel’s rehearsal dinner. Since it’s from a past season, there aren’t many styles left in stock. The ones that are, though, are on major sale: You can buy Middleton’s exact same dress (in a slightly different colorway) for $78, down from the original $195.

It’s always an impressive move when a member of royalty recycles a part look. Not because they’re suddenly like nearly every other person on the planet who repeats clothing all the time, but because it suggests an honest endorsement for whatever they’re wearing, considering a world of options is always at their fingertips.

Tyler Cameron Just Addressed Rumors He Threw Shade at Hannah Brown

Tyler Cameron and Hannah Brown seem to have gone their separate ways after briefly meeting up following the end of The Bachelorette. Cameron has been spotted repeatedly with Gigi Hadid, and Brown is busy living her life and not caring about the drama. But that hasn’t stopped people from scrutinizing Cameron’s every move, including his social media activity. On Wednesday, September 4, he decided to speak out and address accusations that he’d purposefully liked a post shading Brown.

“Someone DM’d me something that I liked a comment that said I was throwing shade at HB and I must say that is a complete accident. For 1 I am very selective for what I like. 2nd, that girl deserves no shade and nothing but success. She empowers women and deserves all the accolades,” he wrote on Twitter.

He added in two later tweets, “She empowers women and created so much conversation on how women should be treated. I am grateful for our time together and all that I learned from her. Made a joke about ‘clarity’ because that was such a hot topic from the show. Will always support HB and her family. Will never take away from her and her family. Amazing people. Have a great night.”

Brown, who is slated to star on the next season of Dancing With the Stars, recently joked about the rumored Hadid-Cameron romance. “Do you remember that one time I then asked another person out on a date? On national television? After I got un-engaged? And then…just read the tabloids,” she cracked on Cosmopolitan‘s “Expensive Taste Test” series.

But Hannah Brown has also spoken about Tyler Cameron more seriously. She told Entertainment Tonight that she last messaged Cameron when she heard his father was sick, but beyond that, she’s not dwelling on the situation or the gossip.

“I think we were both single and it is his decision to do whatever makes him happy, and so I want my own happiness,” she said. “I’m moving forward.”
