If there was ever a woman to talk about the fashion industry’s recent acceptance revolution, it’s Ashley Graham. She sat down with Yahoo Style’s own Joe Zee to talk about it all — from the reason she wants the word “plus-size” banned to her thoughts on Kim K.’s nude selfie to how Gigi Hadid is a fashion inspiration.
With SXSW kicking off this weekend in Austin, Texas, festival season is officially upon us. Whether you’re going to one of them or all of them, we’ve rounded up 10 beauty travel essentials to keep you looking bright, fresh, and beautiful while bobbing your head to some great music.
We know, we know—with hundreds of bands playing hundreds of shows over the course of just a few days, it’s impossible to predict who is going to be the next big thing. That’s why Yahoo Style has stepped in and weeded out five of the best and buzziest acts to come out of Austin’s biggest music festival. Mitski Mitski Miyawaki, who goes by her first name, is someone you won’t forget once you see her perform.

With a dearth of roles for Indian women in Hollywood, she’s played nearly every other ethnicity, not just seeing herself as a middle class woman from Mumbai, India, but rather as a representative of diverse and different cultures.
South by Southwest, the annual festival in Austin, Texas, draws a crowd of film, television, music, and tech stars. From Nina Dobrev in a sunset orange and yellow Elie Saab gown to Zo? Kravitz in denim cutoffs and white tanktop, there was no dress code with styles running the gamut in awards show-worthy gowns and beach-ready outfits. Click through for more of the best dressed at SXSW, including Miley Cyrus who surprised the crowd in a camo slip dress, Eva Mendes, and more.

A new Instagram account, @beardsofsxsw, highlights the best beards at the SXSW festival. From well groomed to wild, every single guy in Austin is sporting facial hair.
Whether you’re heading to Austin for SXSW or you’re just planning a little getaway to the land of the two-step and brisket (head to Lambert’s Downtown BBQ if you’re in the mood), the Texas capital more than delivers when it comes to treating yourself to cool, new beauty products. Here’s a guide to the stores with the best beauty selection—with lots to scoop up, we recommend you check a bag.
Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut is a total downer. The reviews have been far from glowing and the subject matter — a struggling single mom, played by Christina Hendricks, living in a bankrupt-like city — even more somber. Heather McKay stood in front of a packed exhibition hall and asked her girlfriend of 11 years, Susan Dion, to marry her.
I like to call it the best decision I made over the course of my 72-hour trip to Austin, Texas—my resolution to exclusively eat tacos for every meal, leaving no taco behind in the Weird City.
It's the beginning of South by Southwest, and that includes SouthBites, the food-focused segment of the interactive conference. And it looks GREAT.

Owner Aaron Franklin’s brisket is, devotees believe, the stuff of gold. "I’ve been here since 5:45 a.m.," said Jimmy Bashara, the #1 person in line on Saturday. He passed the time with his iPad and some soda.
Austin chef Paul Qui is particular about how things look. The plates in his restaurant, Qui, are custom-made by a local potter.
Brisket, doing its thing in the cooker for 16 hours. The first time Aaron Franklin wanted to cook brisket, he launched his dial-up Internet service, went to the AskJeeves home page (now just Ask.com), and typed “how to cook brisket” in the search field. Zero results. So he called his father, then owner of Ben’s Bar-B-Que in Bryan, Texas, who answered, “I don’t know, just cook it ‘til it’s done.
Enter Christopher Thomas Jacobs, of Jeffrey’s in Austin, whose official title is captain (“like a super hands-on floor manager”), but who we sought out because he’s the Martini Guy. “We do a really classic martini,” he says.
