  • Kate Middleton is the Duchess of Normal Style

    Sarah Mower

    Kate MiddletonKate MiddletonYacht races, white water rafting, rugby, cricket, and play-dates. Blazer from Zara and jeans, a Breton-striped T-shirt, a Tory Burch dress, and a nearly two-year-old favorite Jonathan Saunders sweater. As the Duchess of Cambridge's appearances in New Zealand are progressing, it's slowly dawning on us just how determinedly she's foiling the expectations of royal fashion commentators. No gowns are to be walked on this tour, we've learned. Instead, what we're seeing from the Duke and Duchess is a far more outgoing, human picture of family and character than British royal protocol has ever permitted. True: There've been quite sufficient numbers of "public occasion" one-color suits and coats to be going along with (Catherine Walker & Co, Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Emilia Wickstead, so far)-and she surely has a lot more packed for the next two weeks. But they're the predictable. The royally groundbreaking part is how much we're seeing of her in "normal," practical, functional Read More »from Kate Middleton is the Duchess of Normal Style
  • 15 Musicians You Should Be Following on Instagram

    Rebecca Bengal and Diego Hadis

    Instagram not only allows us to share our lives with others, it's also a thrilling way for us to see the world the way celebrities do. And it's not just celebrities, either: It turns out that our favorite musicians are on the 'gram as well. Sure, a lot of accounts might seem as if they're run by record-label public relations departments, but some recording artists give us a fresh, unfiltered view (well, unless you're talking Lo-Fi or Hefe) of what they're up to, whether that means keeping themselves entertained on the long tour-bus slog between cities or getting primped and ready to hit the stage before the concert tonight. We already love their music, but following them offers up-close peeks into their lives, like Lorde's new Céline flats or A$AP Rocky's "tree$." And while you may know some of the bigger names on the social media platform-such as Beyoncé, who chose Instagram to unveil her last album, or Rihanna, for whom just one angle of herself is Read More »from 15 Musicians You Should Be Following on Instagram

    Yesterday, Man Repeller's Leandra Medine penned a formal response to the comments she has received from readers and Instagram followers regarding her makeup routine-or, rather, her complete lack thereof. Medine is just one of a number of powerful women who go about their daily lives without foundation, concealer, or blush. Around the Vogue offices, too, legions of chic women, from Contributing Editor Camilla Nickerson to Fashion Director Tonne Goodman and Creative Digital Director Sally Singer regularly embrace supernaturally great skin-and little else-above the neck.

    In Medine's case, the look is less of an act of mainstream defiance than one of self-confessed laziness, but no matter the motive, the fresh face is having a moment. If the recent fall 2014 collections are any indication, skin care may be the new makeup. See Pat McGrath's gleaming, dewy cheekbones at Victoria Beckham and Louis

  • Miranda Kerr's Morning Beauty Routines

    Miranda KerrMiranda KerrFor most of us, the act of getting ready for the world each morning is a blurry-eyed, caffeine-fueled affair-hardly what you'd called chic-and yet there are stylish women who make the whole thing appear so easy. Each day this week, we'll ask one of them to reveal the secrets to their a.m. routines, starting with model Miranda Kerr. Here, her tricks to waking up on the right side of the bed on a regular basis, from starting the day with a glass of warm water and lemon to the importance of cuddles and lymphatic drainage.

    What is the very first thing that you do when you wake up?
    Give my son a cuddle and make breakfast together.

    Early bird or night owl?
    I try to get to bed at a reasonable hour but it doesn't always happen. I would have to say that I'm naturally a night owl but since having my son, I've learned to get to bed earlier. I incorporate little rituals like a nighttime meditation, lighting candles, and misting my face and pillow with my Kora Organics

  • Kate Middleton, Carla Bruni, and the Return of the Pillbox Hat

    Sarah Mower

    Kate MiddletonKate MiddletonPutting aside the Catherine Walker & Co. red coat (so like something once worn by Princess Diana) and that accidental leg flash: Following yesterday's Descent From the Aeroplane, let us turn to investigate the Duchess of Cambridge's pillbox hat. It's by Gina Foster, a milliner who has a little shop in Kensington Walk, an alleyway in easy nipping-distance from Kensington Palace. (I checked this morning: There are no other pillboxes on display. This must have been a bespoke commission.)

    Now, I wonder about this hat. Quite obviously, we can't look at it without thinking Jackie O, although that terminology isn't quite right. Actually, it was a minimal compromise for a modern woman who didn't like the idea of millinery at all-Jackie Kennedy's answer to the exasperating requirement of wearing hats in public when she became First Lady in 1961. It was the 28-year-old genius Halston who made the hat for her (although designer Read More »from Kate Middleton, Carla Bruni, and the Return of the Pillbox Hat
  • Emily Blunt on Her Next Big Project—Motherhood

    Emily BluntEmily BluntEmily Blunt has won over Hollywood with her effortless wit and wry, British charm. Now she's embarking on her most ambitious production yet: motherhood.

    "It's really the coolest thing that's ever happened to me," says Emily Blunt of imminent motherhood. Never mind her debut on the London stage at eighteen alongside Judi Dench, directed by Peter Hall; the Golden Globe she won for her performance in the BBC movie Gideon's Daughter, with Bill Nighy; acting opposite Matt Damon, Ewan McGregor, Meryl Streep (twice), and swinging on wires in an "exosuit" with Tom Cruise in this summer's sci-fi spectacular Edge of Tomorrow. On a sunny January afternoon in Los Angeles, Blunt couldn't be more excited about the baby "pretzeled in there," as she puts it, a month or so away from birth.

    "I feel good," she says, "although I do wake up feeling like my grandmother. I sleep with a fortress of pillows around me. I've got one of those huge C-shaped ones," she adds. "My husband

  • 6 Ways to Makeover Your Workout

    Alessandra Codinha

    Remember that old edict, "Dress for success?" Well, a) yes, do, and b) there's more to success than a job promotion. Why should caring about how you present yourself only factor into part of your life? Ultimately, looking great helps lead to feeling great, whether in the boardroom or at the barre. We're great believers in the performance-boosting power of fashion. (I'm fairly certain that is why my mother made me dress up to take the SATs.) After all, it's much easier to motivate for that 6:30am spin class when you're excited about your look. Here, our favorite under-the-radar labels to elevate your workout wardrobe.

  • Mindy Kaling Talks Dressing with Confidence

    Sandra Ballentine

    Mindy KalingMindy KalingThe vivacious, curvaceous comedienne Mindy Kaling loves to skewer everyone, including-especially-herself.

    I feel the same way about clothes as I do about food," quips Mindy Kaling. "I want everything." To this end, the creator and star of the Fox comedy series The Mindy Project is attempting to try on (just about) everything at the designer Maria Cornejo's store, Zero. "Oh, my God, I love this and this!" Kaling says of a hot-pink silk dress and black evening coat she's plucked from the racks.

    "I want to shop in all my interviews now," she says, laughing. The performer shares a go-for-broke fashion fearlessness with her on-screen doppelgänger, Dr. Mindy Lahiri, a clothes-, relationship-, and celebrity-obsessed ob-gyn who's never met a sparkle, sequin, or polka dot she didn't like, preferably piled on all at once. Kaling is the latest in a long line of exuberantly dressed television comediennes, including Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett (Bob Mackie designed all the
