Kamala Harris continues to break barriers in her career. On April 28, she stood behind Joe Biden as he addressed a joint session of Congress at the United States Capitol in Washington DC. Biden acknowledged the vice president and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: “Madam Speaker, Madam Vice President. No president has ever said those words from this podium,” he said. “No president has ever said those words and it’s about time.” If that is not enough to make women and young girls all over the world feel confident, Harris’s bold stature and elegance in a cream Prabal Gurung pantsuit should help.

Harris chose to support the Singaporean-born Nepali American designer raised in Nepal and India at the most crucial time – when Gurung himself is using his platform to stand up against anti-Asian hate crimes in America and racism in the fashion industry. By working with Gurung on … Read the rest

Canadian actor and activist Elliot Page is opening about his life since coming out as transgender.

Page is set to give his first on-camera interview with Oprah Winfrey on the series The Oprah Conversation, which will be available to stream on AppleTV+ on April 30, and the streaming service has dropped a moving sneak peek ahead of time.

In the sit down, Oprah asks the Oscar-nominated actor, who currently stars in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, what has brought him the most joy since sharing the news publicly.

“Goodness, what has brought me the most joy?” Page responds, taking a moment to think.

“It’s getting out of the shower and the towel’s around your waist and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you’re like, ‘There I am.’ And I’m not having the moment where I’m panicked. I’m not having all of these little moments that used to … Read the rest

Surprise! Frankies Bikinis has teamed up with tennis player Naomi Osaka to collaborate on her first-ever swimwear collection. The athlete showcases her sense of style in a range of swimwear designed in collaboration with the brand’s founder and Creative Director Francesca Aiello.

“For this swimwear collection, I really wanted to mix sporty and feminine, just like my own style. Francesca and I designed strong silhouettes in bold colors and also included a lot of playful prints and sparkly fabrics to add some femininity. I think there’s a little something for everyone in this collection, and that makes me really excited,” Naomi exclusively told POPSUGAR.

The collection will be released in two drops. The first drop will release on May 10 and focuses on “fun, girly prints and new silhouettes.” The brand will showcase new prints called “sweet pea” floral, “libra stripe,” and “candyland.” It will also be showcasing Naomi’s signature … Read the rest

The pomp and circumstance around prom — and the importance of finding the perfect ensemble to wear to it — goes back decades. But prom trends have come and gone since young men wore powder blue tuxedos with matching cummerbunds in the 1970s, and it wasn’t until the aughts that lavishly beaded and bedazzled gowns became the standard for high school grads — largely thanks to young stars upping their game on the red carpet and millennial TV dramas beginning to adorn teen stars in luxury brands for their senior dances. (Take Marissa Cooper from The O.C., who showed up to prom dressed in Chanel!) It’s as if the night has become an extension of the star-studded red carpets and best dressed lists we ogle at each year. After all, these grand-scale Hollywood events are where designers and celebrities flex their influence — and are a quintessential stop on … Read the rest

Only three months after landing her first modeling contract, Ella Emhoff has launched her first official knitwear collaboration with designer Batsheva Hay, and the collection alone might make grandma chic 2021’s newest trend. After teasing the design process in early March – which involved collaborating via text, email, and Zoom – Ella and Batsheva have channeled 2000s pastel style into three pieces ranging in price from $150 to $280.

“Having the bright colors I love mixed with her traditional silhouettes; it was kind of the perfect melding of styles,” Ella said in a press release. “There’s not a real plan, it’s just intuition. It was really nice to work with someone else who works like that because it can be seen as an unorganized aspect, but it’s not. It just happens so stress-free.” The pair only met up once in person for fittings, making the finished collection a true creative … Read the rest

“I never thought I would write a book,” says Christian Allaire endearingly. Allaire, whose recognition has grown since joining the U.S. Vogue team as a writer in 2019 — where he lends a particular expertise in highlighting Indigenous fashion creatives — admits he’s not used to being on the other side of the interview. But he’ll have to get used to it, especially after today’s release of The Power of Style: How Fashion and Beauty Are Being Used To Reclaim Cultures, his approachable, heartfelt and informative exploration of style.

The name of Allaire’s book comes from a very personal place, and he hopes it will resonate with fashion fans who, like himself, grew up not seeing themselves — or seeing caricaturized versions of their community — represented in the style world. Allaire grew up in Nippissing, Ont. on a First Nations reserve, and initially came to understand the dynamics … Read the rest

The late Diana, Princess of Wales’s iconic wedding dress from her marriage to Prince Charles in 1981 will go on display at Kensington Palace in London this summer. The ivory silk taffeta and antique lace gown designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel is set to be the main attraction of the Royal Style in the Making exhibition curated by Historic Royal Palaces, which will also include never-before-seen archival designs by some of the most renowned royal couturiers of the 20th century.

Opening on Thursday, June 3, and until Sunday, Jan. 2, 2022, the Royal Style in the Making exhibition will give fans of royal fashion an up-close look at Princess Diana’s bridal gown. The era-defining design features an impressive 25-foot train, an 153-yard tulle veil, a dramatic collar, and puff sleeves detailed with ruffles and bows. In addition to Princess Diana’s historic dress, the exhibition will include original sketches, fabric … Read the rest

Though the winners throughout the 2021 Oscars spoke to a sea change in terms of the scope of talent being nurtured in Hollywood and beyond, when it came to the “most watched runway” in the world, the momentum of progress seemed to stop in its tracks.

Many fashion insiders and fans alike were hoping to see names like Christopher John Rogers (a current semi-finalist for the LVMH Prize and 2019’s winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund), Sergio Hudson (who outfitted Michelle Obama for January’s U.S. presidential inauguration festivities) and Claude Kameni (whose designs were worn by Viola Davis for the most recent Golden Globes) get checked when “What are you wearing?” was asked on the red carpet. But the labels that largely appeared were disappointingly the industry heavy-hitters — predominantly led by white designers — that we’re used to. Valentino (worn by both Zendaya and Carey Mulligan), Chanel, Armani Privé … Read the rest

Daniel Kaluuya’s 2021 Oscars moment may have came during the first hour of the Academy Awards ceremony, but it quickly became an early contender for best speech of the night.

The British actor was clearly moved on stage while accepting the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his turn as Fred Hampton in biographical drama Judas and the Black Messiah. His speech started emotionally, as Kaluuya thanked God, his family and his friends. “For my mom, thank you so much for pouring into me, you gave me everything. You gave me your factory settings. So I can stand at my fullest height,” he said, as the camera panned to his mom and sister, who was crying. “Love to my sister, my niece, my friends and family, everyone I love.”

Kaluuya moved on, eventually paying tribute to the real-life Hampton. “What a man, how blessed we are we lived … Read the rest
