But some aren’t buying the pivot from male fantasy to female empowerment.

Tennis champion Naomi Osaka is Victoria Secret’s newest VS Collective member.

The lingerie retailer shared the news on Instagram November 17, writing that the 24-year-old athlete “will join an ever-growing group of trailblazing partners who share a common passion to drive positive change.”

In June 2021, Victoria Secret launched its VS Collective, an initiative made up of figureheads to “influence and shape the future” of the brand.

Osaka joins the ranks of other high-profile celebs, including Hailey Bieber, Priyanka Chopra, Eileen Gu, Megan Rapinoe, Paloma Elsesser and Valentina Sampaio.

In an interview with WWD, Osaka said she was inspired to get involved after learning about the vision for the VS Collective.

“I remember going into [Victoria’s Secret] stores when

Months after closing its doors, Le Château is making its return with a “Glamour Capsule.”

On Tuesday, November 16, Le Château is re-entering the Canadian retail conversation with a casual collection of graphic tees and tracksuits.

Just kidding. It’s a “Glamour Capsule” of decadent dresses and jumpsuits, with all the holiday flair you would expect from Canada’s go-to prom destination.

The 50 look assortment, available on lechateau.com, takes the drama and glitz synonymous with the Montreal-based brand and presents updated versions of its early-aughts staples. Lace and velvet cascade over plunging necklines. Glitter and ruching commingle in wide-legged pantsuits. There’s even a few mom-approved cutouts.

“Our sweet spot was always dresses,” shares Franco Rocchi, senior marketing director of Le Château. “So for the Le Château relaunch we’re starting with occasion dresses for the holiday season.”

Including Canadian-made candles you need for your holiday Netflix binge, chic new collagen supplements for your morning coffee and a hair gel you’ll actually want to use.

The newest Tom Ford fragrance is an ode to burning Palo Santo

If you dabble in a little morning meditation or post-work incense burn to take the edge off, the latest Tom Ford fragrance might just be a love letter to your chakras. Part of his private blend collection, Ébène Fumé  is considered a woody amber scent and balances the essence of palo santo (a wild tree that was reportedly used by the ancient Incas to clear negative energy) with African ebony wood, black pepper, pine, citrus and Tom’s beloved roses. The heady combo is undoubtedly a transcendent spritz. “I wanted a scent that captures a meditative feeling. It has

And slayed the red carpet but, what else is new?

It has to be said: We have been spoiled by Zendaya.

Putting aside her pre-Summer 2021 fashion resume, the past few months have been the ultimate ice cream sundae of decadent fashion, with her stylist Law Roach as the pastry chef and Timothée Chalamet as the cherry on top.

So, after being treated to a montage of sickly sweet ensembles, varying from a custom leather gown to a bodice made entirely from chains, expectations for the youngest recipient of the Fashion Icon Award on the 2021 CFDA red carpet were sky-high. She didn’t disappoint.

As a nod to what is perhaps her signature silhouette, Zendaya walked the CFDA red carpet in a custom Vera Wang creation, complete with a crop top and avant-garde skirt. Her rumoured boyfriend and

The brighter the better.

Many of us tend to gravitate towards a neutral wardrobe this time of year, opting for toasty browns, cozy greys and classic black as we bid farewell to summer —but some of our favourite celebrity street style looks have broken all the fall fashion rules, trading in these classic colours for more vivid hues.

Last week, Rihanna hit the streets of NYC in a lime green statement coat by Marina Moscone paired with her very own chartreuse Savage x Fenty ‘Caged Lace Jersey Gloves.’ It had all the makings of a true-to-form fall ensemble: a long wool coat, wide-leg pants and seasonal gloves — but with an unorthodox element of colour that just works.

To further inspire you to add colour to your fall and winter looks, we’ve gathered some of
