The Christopher Kane Resort 2020 collection is all about pushing boundaries. This season, the London-based designer unveiled a “Technosexual” collection, which is all about futuristic vibes and science fiction undertones. The line, filled with bold colors, sparkling metallics, and bold slogans, is intended to be a commentary on our collective obsession with digital devices. Of course, it incorporates the designer’s signature chainmail, and mixes hard and light fabrics with contrasting accessories. It also brings hidden fetishes to the forefront, and inspires with its limitless styling opportunities.
“Nothing is taboo and nothing will ever be taboo for Christopher Kane. The whole concept of censorship didn’t work back then, so why should it work now?” the designer said about the season, via WWD. “We’re not humdrum, we need to explore these notions and have a sense of humor. It’s all about provoking a reaction and giving women the tools to feel empowered, because women today should have the power to be sexually aggressive and not be shamed for it.”
Can this world even handle a Jennifer LopezCoach style team-up? Well, get ready: because it is really happening! The iconic 50-year-old singer and actress has been announced as the latest celebrity ambassador to the heritage fashion brand.
The star is set to make her official debut with a Spring 2020 season campaign shot by longtime Coach photographer, Juergen Teller. She is reportedly going to be repping Coach’s women’s ready-to-wear, shoes, and accessories. By way of announcement, the brand released a teaser black and white photo shoot image from Benjamin Rosser. In the snap, J.Lo is wearing a stylish classic trench coat and billowing silk scarf.
“Jennifer is so authentic,” Coach’s Creative Director Stuart Vevers said in a brand press release. “She’s determined and she’s an original who has followed her own path to do things her own way––she really embodies the attitude of Coach and our new campaign. She’s from New York like Coach, which creates another authentic connection with our heritage, and I’m particularly excited about bringing Jennifer and Juergen Teller together.”
Lopez is thrilled to be working with the New York-based fashion label, and she joins a star-studded family of Coach global ambassadors and recent campaign stars including Selena Gomez, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Moss, Yara Shahidi, Megan Thee Stallion and many more.
“I’m so excited for this collaboration with Coach. It is a timeless brand that I’ve always been a fan of, and the upcoming collection really speaks to my personal style––an uptown downtown mix,” she said in a statement. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing how this partnership plays out!
Stay tuned: we’ll be sure to keep you updated with more Jennifer Lopez Coach campaign launches!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute‘s spring exhibition and Met Gala 2020 theme will be “About Time: Fashion and Duration.” The fashion industry event will take place at the Fifth Avenue New York City museum location on May 4.
This year’s extravagant Met Gala is sponsored by Louis Vuitton, and the co-chairs are Nicolas Ghesquière, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, and Anna Wintour.
“It will trace more than a century and a half of fashion, from 1870 to the present, along a disruptive timeline, as part of the Museum’s 150th anniversary celebration,” the Met announced about the upcoming show in a press release.
“Employing philosopher Henri Bergson’s concept of la durée—time that flows, accumulates, and is indivisible—the exhibition will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present, and future,” according to the release. “The concept will also be examined through the writings of Virginia Woolf, who will serve as the ‘ghost narrator’ of the exhibition. Michael Cunningham, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel The Hours, which was inspired by Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, will write a new short story for the exhibition catalogue that reflects on the concept of duration.”
The exhibit itself, featuring about 160 fashion samples, will be on view to the public from May 7 through September 7, 2020.
“This exhibition will consider the ephemeral nature of fashion, employing flashbacks and fast-forwards to reveal how it can be both linear and cyclical,” said Max Hollein, Director of The Met. “As such, the show will present a nuanced continuum of fashion over the Museum’s 150-year history.”
Andrew Bolton, Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute, added: “Fashion is indelibly connected to time. It not only reflects and represents the spirit of the times, but it also changes and develops with the times, serving as an especially sensitive and accurate timepiece. Through a series of chronologies, the exhibition will use the concept of duration to analyze the temporal twists and turns of fashion history.”
We’re looking forward to seeing how guests interpret this Met Gala 2020 theme in their red carpet costumery and beyond.
Stay tuned for more information about the Met Gala 2020 theme, co-chairs, red carpet event, and more.
Sisters Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian have all teamed up on the brand new KKW FragranceDiamond collection. Each of the three stars has worked on her own jewel-themed scent for KKW Beauty‘s latest three-piece perfume range, which includes Diamond (Kim), Pink Diamond (Kourtney), and Yellow Diamond (Khloe).
“This is Kim’s world and expertise; she came to us as her sisters and came up with the idea of the Diamond Collection,” Khloe told Allure magazine about the collection’s origins. “We picked the notes to put together our individual scents.”
Diamond is described by the brand as “a fresh white floral bouquet” that is “dripping in diamonds.” It features opening notes of tropical floral leaves, sugar coated ginger, and wild armoise Morocco organic, with a heart of ylang ylang oil cosmors orpur, orange flower absolute orpur, and exotic sampaguita blossom. The scent closes with notes of coconut milk cream, white musk, and solar white floral.
KKW Fragrance calls Pink Diamond “a transparent floral bouquet” that “lights up a room with hues of soft, romantic pink and nuances of sheer sensuality.” The perfume features opening notes of morning dew accord, Italian bergamot, and sparkling pink puff violet accord, with a heart of pink sapphire tuberose, blushing jasmine, and sweet lilac blossoms. The scent finishes with sensual cloud musk, dreamy white moss, and sun drenched driftwood.
Finally, sweet Yellow Diamond is “a sparkling Oriental gourmand,” according to the brand’s website. After opening with rich golden currant berries, this scent develops with notes of yellow jasmine, yellowbird magnolia, and yellow flag iris. It ends with rich white patchouli, soft musk, and whipped vanilla.
The KKW Fragrance Diamond collection will launch on the brand’s website on November 8 at 12 PM EST. Each 30ml bottle is set to sell for $40.
The newly-announced Starbucks Holiday 2019 drink menu is filled with comforting classic coffee favorites – and will be sold in festive reusable cup designs! This season, Starbucks drinkers can expect to sample some Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, the Caramel Brulee Latte, the Chestnut Praline Latte, and the Eggnog Latte, plus the annual Christmas Blend coffee.
Each drink option is topped with a matching flavored treat, like peppermint sprinkles, white chocolate, slivers of caramel, candied chestnuts, and yummy brown sugar.
So, about those cups! Starbucks’ iconic red cup and seasonal holiday art designs have become quite the treat to look forward to each year. For 2019, there will be four different cup designs, called Merry Dance, Merry Stripes, Polka Dots, and Candy Cane Stripes. Each of these playful cups feature a jolly red and green color scheme and bold typography.
“We came up with this idea of wrapping the stores in holiday joy and wrapping the cups like a gift to our partners and customers,” said Jen Quotson, vice president of Starbucks Creative, in a statement. “We wanted coming to Starbucks to be like uncovering a present. We played with this idea of typography being art and the green dot of the Starbucks logo. We just thought that was a very sweet expression of the brand, but still felt very holiday.”
When you bring your red cups back to Starbucks stores from November 7 through January 7 to reuse them, you’ll also get 50 cents off your next grande holiday beverage – which includes these new additions along with hot chocolate varieties, pumpkin spice lattes, and more. This literally is the gift that keeps on giving!
The full Starbucks Holiday 2019 menu will be available at Starbucks locations across the United States and Canada starting on November 7.

Has there been something missing in your Glossier makeup bag? Perhaps your eye looks just weren’t complete with only Lidstar shadow and Lash Slick mascara. Well now, you need to meet Glossier Pro Tip: the buildable, smudge-resistant, quick-drying, and long-lasting brush point liquid eyeliner pen from the Instagram-approved beauty brand.
This easy to use and innovative liner was created to make drawing winged eyeliner looks and flared edges a breeze. Which we realize has never truly been the case, even with other brands’ click pens or inky markers.
“Pro Tip is everything you want in a liquid liner (it draws the sharpest line, comes in the truest black, and doesn’t budge) with no tricky, time-sucking application (redoing the line, getting it even, and using all the makeup remover),” Glossier shared on its website.
“The pen’s brush tip was designed with flexible fibers that hug the curve of the lash line, allowing for precise definition,” the brand added. “Its densely-pigmented, buildable formula dries quickly so it’s smudge resistant and stays put for up to 12 hours. Plus, an internal ball shaker lets the formula flow through evenly, giving you a smooth line that doesn’t drag, every time.”
It seems like the natural extension of recently-released Brow Flick.
So far, the Glossier Pro Tip liner comes in the “truest black color,” which is densely pigmented and streak-free. It’s great to see a classic launch, but we hope this formula gets rolled out in more shades soon. Glossier has listed the product as vegan, cruelty-fee, contact lens-safe, and hypoallergenic, so we have high hopes for its effectiveness!
Glossier Pro Tip is now available to shop via the brand’s website, retailing for $16 per pen. It’s also part of the Eye Trio makeup bundle.
