  • Jennifer Lawrence Admits She's 'Going Through a Meltdown'

    Jonathan Van Meter


    Jennifer Lawrence, Vogue's September issue cover girlJennifer Lawrence, Vogue's September issue cover girlWhether lighting up an indie or fronting a blockbuster franchise, Jennifer Lawrence is the most electric talent to hit Hollywood in a generation. Jonathan Van Meter meets America's favorite heroine.

    Leave it to J.Law to choose the Odeon, a restaurant she plucked from a list because she liked the sound of its name. It opened on a corner in Tribeca long before Lawrence was even born and defined a genre: Execute everything perfectly, but don't take it all so seriously-an apt description of Lawrence herself. Indeed, Odeon has lasted for 30 years because, while it cares about great service and good food, it is committed above all else to being fun. In fact, I myself had so much early-nineties fun there that when I walked in at 1:00 p.m. on a Friday and sat down, I had a reaction that can only be described as Pavlovian: I ordered a vodka.

    Jennifer Lawrence-unlike, say, Jennifer Aniston or Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Garner-never looks the same. It's one of the

  • Beyoncé’s New Short Haircut: A Look Back at Her Mane Styles



    The world woke up this morning, logged on to Instagram, and saw what looked like Beyoncé with shockingly short hair. In three photos the singer posted late Wednesday night, her fresh, new crop appears to be the real thing. With everyone from Anne Hathaway to Léa Seydoux to Princess Charlene of Monaco lopping off their locks earlier this spring, shorn hair has proven to be the statement style of the summer. Over the years, Beyoncé has tried just about every look out there-bangs, braids, waves, blonde, brunette, stick straight, and wide-barrel curls-but she has never picked up the shears until now. Whether her transformative new cut is the result of her dramatic onstage encounter with a fan last month-or, more likely, a deliberate mid-tour style statement-we look forward to seeing how it plays out on her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, where hair-whipping is a highly anticipated trademark. All hail the new halo.

  • Happy National Cat Day! in Defense of the Cat Lady

    Sandra Ballentine

    Vogue, June 1, 1958Vogue, June 1, 1958As my ex-boyfriend, Robert, approached a milestone birthday, I racked my brain trying to come up with a suitable gift for the man who has, well, a lot. I couldn't afford a Magritte, and a case of '61 Haut Brion was equally out of the question. Then it dawned on me. I would commission an artist to paint our children, Tatters and Ally, who happen to be Bengal cats.

    I knew it wouldn't be easy. Getting the girls to sit still for more than dinner is no mean feat, and they are Garbo-like in their refusal to cooperate with photographers. But then I met Dare Johnson Wenzler, a Washington, D.C., artist who paints portraits of her four-legged subjects from photos, even hastily snapped iPhone shots.

    The concept evolved quickly: Robert is English, we think our cats are princesses, and I had just finished reading Hilary Mantel's Bring up the Bodies. So I decided that Ally should be Elizabeth I, and her sister, Tatters, should be

  • Gwen Stefani, Kanye West, David Bowie: 10 Visionary Styles Inspired by Musicians

    edited by Meredith Melling Burke


    Many of the greatest moments in fashion history have taken their cues from what was playing on the radio at the time. Kurt Cobain's layers of plaid shirts singlehandedly ensured the popularity of flannel in the grunge 90s, Jane Birkin's slip dresses were endlessly copied during the 70s, and the same can be said of Florence Welch's dreamy boho dresses today. In honor of the enduring love affair between music and fashion, we bring you ten looks as iconic as the singers and bands that inspired them.

  • Game, Set, Match: The Sports World's Best Couples

    Evelyn Crowley




    Insofar as dating is a sport, pro athletes bring some key advantages to the playing field. They know how to be true teammates, i.e. sacrificing their own needs for the greater good of the relationship. And they excel at tests of endurance-a trait that will come in handy during the marathon that is marriage. But alas, they often pair up with other athletes, dashing the hopes of those of us who lack chiseled physiques and superior hand-eye-coordination skills. "It's very hard for me to relate to someone who doesn't do sports at a high level," explains Olympic Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, discussing her romance with golf titan Tiger Woods in this month's issue of Vogue.



    Inspired by Vonn and Woods's budding histoire d'amour, we've assembled an all-star lineup of our favorite sports-world pairings, from tennis It-couple Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov to newly engaged basketball lovebirds Kevin Durant and Monica Wright. When it comes to matters of the heart, consider

    Everyone's at one time or another felt a dash of FOMO as they scroll through the endless images of remote sunsets, beach feet, and pristine boat decks that fill up Instagram feeds during the summer. But for those who love fashion, there's another kind of FOMO that worms its way into your heart: Fear of Missing Outfits. It's a hard emotion to stuff down as you take in filtered fabulousness while eating your breakfast (in your weekday staple pencil skirt, not on a boat) or waiting for a friend at your neighborhood restaurant (wearing the sandals you keep meaning to toss out, sans ocean view). But even if you aren't globe-trotting, that doesn't mean your personal style has to remain static. Shift that envy into inspiration. Click through the slideshow above for the most recent looks from Beyoncé, Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson, and Elena Perminova on their Instagrams-all made shoppable.

  • 10 Tips for Looking Good in Cropped Pants

    Emily Holt


    Cropped pants CAN be for everyone.Cropped pants CAN be for everyone."What it all comes down to for me is silhouette. You have to have the right balance," says Susie Crippen, a devotee of cropped pants, former creative director of J Brand, and a designer of her year old-label, Crippen. The resort collection, in fact, is almost exclusively abbreviated bottoms paired with Crippen's signature cool, relaxed tunics, T-shirts, and blouses. It all evokes a laid-back California lifestyle that Susie, who is based in Los Angeles and recently bought a place in idyllic Ojai, embodies. But how to wear trousers cut above the ankle-and how much ankle is chic, anyway-is not always obvious, especially once the weather cools. Vogue.com asked the designer for her expert opinion. "Your shoe choice," she says, "is very important."

  • Pretty Ugly: Birkenstocks Are Making a Comeback

    Chioma Nnadi


    There was a moment at the Céline spring 2013 show in Paris last fall, as models shuffled out in cozy fur-lined slip-ons, when a collective sigh of relief rippled through the fashion crowd. "That silhouette was universally considered ugly," says Vogue.com contributor Katherine Bernard. "But Phoebe Philo's luxe reinterpretation of a Birkenstock got me thinking. It's like the most comfortable sandal in the world is having a stylish renaissance." With its squishy cork footbed, roomy toe box, and thick buckled straps, the sturdy, sensible sole has been embraced by others besides Bernard. In fact, fashion editors in these very hallways have been bringing their secret love of the jolie-laide shoe into the light of day. "I've been wearing them around the house forever, but recently I've taken fancier versions out into the world, too," says Associate Accessories Editor Jorden Bickham. "When my husband sees them, he says I'm lucky that we're already married, but honestly I think
