  • Beyoncé’s Diets Are the Most Effective I Have Ever Tried

    I have seen Beyoncé's HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, a startling number of times. There are so many parts I like: When Beyoncé brings her computer into an elevator and films herself in the elevator. When Beyoncé talks to a mysterious man off-camera who is wearing glasses. When Beyoncé says, "Life is but a dream!" to Jay-Z and Feist is playing in the background.

    Not everyone (for example: Karl Lagerfeld, assorted Kardashians) has gotten the memo about Native-American headdress appropriation. But at least one music festival has.

  • Charlize Theron and Sean Penn: Engaged?

    As rare as seeing an infrequently seen bird in a primordial forest or a snow leopard in the tundra, some nature photographers spotted something equally unique and fascinating on Wednesday: Charlize Theron with a sparkling rock fastened to a finger, a finger that indicates a commitment to committing to marriage. The ring could possibly originate from Sean Penn, another human on earth, who has been standing close to Charlize Theron for about six months.

  • 4 Ways to Wear a Straw Hat like a Street-Style Star

    By Rebecca Ramsay, The Cut A quick survey of street style from Pitti Uomo, menswear shows, and Couture reveals that this summer, the fashion crowd is embracing shady straw hats in a big way. Florence saw well-dressed men - like Munsoo Kwon, Sam Lambert, and Ouigi Theodore - effortlessly pulling off the trend, while in Florence, Margherita Rovelli paired a boater with a sweet Peter Pan-collared dress.

Luckily, it's a trend that's easy to adapt, even if you're not making the fashion-week rounds - a straw hat is the perfect accessory for a long, summer road trip, a day at the beach, or running errands in the city.

  • Does Lululemon Want You to Die or Something?

    The red tote bags given away by yogawear company and PR-disaster Lululemon are chock-packed with phrases that seemed to be the same hippie-dippie nonsense on the tags of tea bags or inside of chocolate wrappers.
