  • Can You Drink Your Way to Better Skin?

    Celia Ellenberg

    Herbal beauty Herbal beauty On a mid-Fashion Week morning last month, I was struggling with a list of symptoms that come with a back-to-back show schedule in the middle of blizzard season: Breakouts, fatigue, and a green-tinged, late-winter pallor. Emergency help was deemed necessary-but not the facialist's variety: instead, I opted for an appointment with an herbalist.

    Herbal tinctures-potent plant-based, drinkable holistic remedies that are steeped in alcohol to increase their concentration (and, therefore, their health benefits)-have long been used in traditional Chinese and alternative medicine. In recent years, however, they've increasingly gained momentum as a new kind of beauty cure. Backstage at Rodarte, for instance, makeup artist James Kaliardos was singing the praises of Dr. Bach's flower remedies, while at Oscar de la Renta, the makeup artist Gucci Westman referred me to New York's Chinatown, where she often gets custom-mixed herbs for

  • Why the '90s Grunge-Goth Lip Never Gets Old

    Catherine Piercy

    LordeLordeNews of Lorde's forthcoming makeup collaboration with MAC, out this June, inspired visions of what will almost certainly be the definitive blackened plum lip color of the season-but here in the Vogue.com offices, a grunge-y, gothy, nineties-esque lip lives on year-round. Think Kristen McMenamy in Steven Meisel's iconic Grunge & Glory shoot. Think Winona and Johnny. Think Drew Barrymore in her daisy phase.

    I mean, remember Clinique's Black Honey-the gateway lipstick of choice for a generation of nineties girls who eventually moved on to the supersaturated matte version of the look? Apparently we're not the only ones who stockpiled little silver tubes in our formative years. These days, everyone from Lana Del Rey to Azealia Banks and Rihanna have made a Bordeaux lip color bordering on black their signature. And yes, Ri-Ri recently created her own super dark lipstick in collaboration with MAC, too.

  • Amy Adams's Beauty Essentials and Secrets

    Amy AdamsAmy Adams

    There's something undeniably magnetic about Amy Adams. Since her breakout role in 2005's Junebug, the five-time Oscar nominee has proven to be an on-screen chameleon, taking on such disparate roles as a plain-faced nun (Doubt), a tiara-topped princess (Enchanted), and, of course, a disco-era swindler dripping with glamour (American Hustle).

    Not surprisingly, Adams will soon be extending her range even further. She plays the artist Margaret Keane opposite Christoph Waltz in Tim Burton's Big Eyes, which is set for release later this year, and she is gearing up to reprise her Lois Lane in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. On the heels of a marathon awards season, wrapping up with the Oscars on Sunday, Vogue caught up with the actress in Los Angeles, where she'd finally had a chance to unwind: "I've been able to be with my daughter [three-and-a-half year-old Aviana] and get a couple good nights' sleep!"

    You've been a fixture on the red carpet this year. Are

  • Top Tech and How to Tote It

    Kelly Connor

    While our most beloved pieces of technology have become an accessory all their own (when was the last time you weren't clutching your iPhone?), now the cases have followed suit. Inspired by this picture on Le 21ème, we thought we'd send you into your weekend (which is also smack in the middle of SXSW Interactive in Austin) feeling more than a little bit digital.

  • Inside Karlie Kloss' First New York City Home

    I'm not used to being me in a photo," says Karlie Kloss, who, in spite of her protestations, seems perfectly comfortable doing exactly that. Naturally flashing her sly, alluring smile and leaning ever so effortlessly against her kitchen counter, she looks every inch the supermodel. Still, she's on to something: Since the age of fifteen, Kloss has perfected the art of embodying someone else's vision. But representing herself, in the first home she can call her own-a West Village town house purchased just last year? "It's taking me out of my comfort zone," she says with a laugh. Then she falls back on a familiar move: the trademark supermodel jump. "That jump paid for this house," Kloss, now visibly more relaxed, says-and she's only half-joking.

    Though few other 21-year-olds have the means to buy such an impressive starter home in one of Manhattan's most-sought-after neighborhoods, as Kloss is quick to point out, "I've worked really hard to be in

    Anna KendrickAnna KendrickHere, Vogue.com's onetime special correspondent Anna Kendrick documents her Oscar-weekend adventures, reporting on everything from why it's not supposed to rain in L.A. to eating In-N-Out Burger in a corset and, of course, presenting an Academy Award.

    Friday Night:
    The rain forecast this weekend is setting everyone on edge. You can barely maintain this level of smoke-and-mirrors glamour in a hermetically sealed lab, let alone out in the world when it's pissing rain. I thought we put up with the traffic and plastic surgery in L.A. in exchange for good weather. What gives? My makeup artist, Sara Glick, arrives a half hour early and catches me eating peanut butter straight out of the jar. I don't even stop. This is still my time. Aubrey Plaza is my date for the evening. Our first stop is the Giorgio Armani party, and she's on her way to pick me up. The thing about these events is that most of them just serve booze and slivers of vegetables on rice crackers, so you

  • Would You Rock a Tribal Rihanna-Inspired Tattoo?

    Celia Ellenberg

    Rihanna and Joan Smalls at Givenchy. Rihanna and Joan Smalls at Givenchy. During any given runway season, there's always one backstage beauty look-Givenchy's spring 2012 glittering lash paillettes, Altuzarra's spring 2013 navy liner-I'm compelled to try at home. This season, however, it's a front-row beauty moment that I can't seem to shake. When Rihanna got a tribal-meets-henna-inspired tattoo permanently inked onto her right hand in October, I didn't pay much notice. But since spotting her at Balmain, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, and pretty much everywhere else in Paris this week-not to mention on the March cover of Vogue-I've been mesmerized by the traditional Indian pattern. So I did what any true beauty sleuth would do: Following a brief Internet search, and a few investigative Frenglish phone calls, I tracked down the nearest tatouage au henné establishment I could find in the City of Light and hopped the Metro to the seventeenth arrondissement. Thirty minutes later, I swung open the door to Eva Nails, a no-appointment-necessary "beautéRead More »from Would You Rock a Tribal Rihanna-Inspired Tattoo?
  • 5 Men's Sneakers You'll Want to Wear Now

    Patricia Garcia


    From the looks of things on the street, sneaker mania has hit an all-time high. So it's only logical that the next iteration of the trend would be to borrow from the boys. With masculine kicks sporting more and more feminine color combinations as of late-think Raf Simons's lime green and pale pink version-we're predicting, come spring, you'll be hunting around your boyfriend's shoe closet for a few ideas. Here, we suggest five men's sneakers, from Marc Jacobs to Balenciaga, you'll want to buy now-in a smaller size, of course.

  • Kim Kardashian and Kanye's Paris Wedding: Where Should They Have It?

    Patricia Garcia

    Kanye West and Kim Kardashian recently let slip that they were looking forward to having a "small and intimate" wedding in Paris, which would be surprising to anyone who saw their engagement day on television-in the San Francisco Giants' baseball park with a 50-piece orchestra and a 15K diamond ring-an event which made it abundantly clear that Kim and Kanye don't really do things under the radar. But with Kanye popping up front row at the Paris shows (we're sure the couple will be spotted at Givenchy on Sunday), we're left wondering whether the groom-to-be is scouting potential wedding locations. Here, we suggest six places that just might fit the bill.

  • Oscars 2014: The Ten Best Dressed Celebrities on the Red Carpet


    Queen Lupita wowed us all in pleated Prada perfection, while our other best dressed ladies reinvented old Hollywood glamour in a palatable, non-costumey way, from Penélope Cruz's version of Grace Kelly elegance to Kate Hudson fulfilling Barbie's high-fashion dream. Jennifer Lawrence looked her reliably fabulous self, though her stumble two years in a row means that perhaps next year she should try a Christian Dior Couture sneaker under her gown.
