Kind Science promises a fresh take on skincare and a dose of “age positivity.”

Ellen DeGeneres just launched her own skincare brand, Kind Beauty, and suddenly we’re transported back to the controversy of summer 2020.

In announcing the collection, released on October 26, DeGeneres said she chose the name Kind Beauty because the line is “kind to animals, kind to your skin, kind to the planet and kind to your wallet.” Products range from US$22 to US$48 and have been created in collaboration with beauty industry figurehead Victoria Jackson. The name is also a play on the comedian’s motto and the tagline featured in each episode of her long-running talk show (now in its final season) The Ellen DeGeneres Show: “Be kind.”

Last July, Ellen DeGeneres came under fire after it was

Including sunscreen that serves up major nostalgia, a cleansing balm for chillier weather and Dior’s new brand ambassador.

Billie Eilish will drop her first fragrance next month

This week on her Instagram, Billie Eilish announced her first foray into the beauty world with Eilish by Billie Eilish, a new fragrance set to drop in November. The surprisingly gourmand perfume is an ode to her favourite aroma: vanilla, a scent which Eilish told Vogue brings back memories of baking with her mom. Rounding out the rest of the notes are equally warm and cozy scents perfect for the fragrance’s pre-holiday release, including spices, cocoa and amber. Who knew all the “Happier Than Ever” singer ever wanted was a cup of hot chocolate and a cashmere wrap?

Platforms take the high ground as the temperature takes a downturn.

Remember the infamous Jeffrey Campbell Litas? The polarizing platform heeled boots were all the rage in the 2010s, and now a renaissance of sorts is upon us. Some might attribute the trend of taller statement boots to our (however slow) recovery from a period of social and economic hardships — after a year and a half (and counting) of the pandemic, everyone is ready to go higher, bigger and brighter when it comes to footwear, and fashion in general.

The return of ’90s/2000s fashion is bringing with it the iconic platform boot, taking inspiration from The Spice Girls, Bratz Dolls and other pop culture fixtures of that era. Most recently, a street style shot of Olivia Rodrigo in a pair of red patent Naked Wolfe platform boots took

How Lana Del Rey and Flower Crowns Helped Me In My Gender Transition

“Part of me wanted to scream my womanhood to the world, but the rest of me still wanted to keep everything secret inside.”

During the year I spent in Scotland, I listened almost exclusively to an all-girls playlist. Hits by my role models Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira fuelled my spirits and imagination as I pretended to live the ultimate cool-alternative-girl fantasy of the mid-2010s. But my reality was very different.

Of all the countless musical strolls I went on during those 12 months (and there were many), one will always stand out in my memory. As I was walking back from my job as a French-language assistant, I passed the various clothing stores along Glasgow’s Buchanan Street with my headphones on and was surrounded by women’s clothing. I passed window after window, each filled with countless pairs of

Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet: Their Best Looks Together

Because of course they did!

How did Dune director Denis Villeneuve’s remake of the 1984 sci-fi flick become the must-see fashion event of the fall? Blame Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet.

Simply put, the co-stars are a match made in fashion heaven. Style icons in their own right — Zendaya for her ability to rock the most avant-garde of avant-garde runway looks and Chalamet for his androgynous and experimental suiting — one might think that their distinct and bold ensembles would cause a reenactment of the Clash of the Titans. Instead, we got Titanic (minus the traumatic ending) — a perfect pair whose differences elevate the other. Think Zendaya’s leather Balmain gown beside Chalamet’s sparkly Haider Ackermann non-suit at the Venice Film Festival.

Suffice to say, with each public appearance the fashion expectations skyrocket. The duo rose to the
