Selma Blair 'Feels Like a New Person' After Life-Altering Stem Cell Transplant for her MS

Since receiving her 2018 multiple sclerosis diagnosis, Selma Blair has become intimately acquainted with the highs and lows of living with a chronic illness. In 2019, the symptoms associated with her specific form of the degenerative neurological disease had reached a breaking point for the actress, often leaving her struggling to walk and talk. To hopefully help jumpstart her immune system, she underwent a risky two-month hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT)

How Marina Cortbawi Created Clothes for the Freedom She Craved

In our new series MC Muse, savvy women from around the world share their style, their ambitions, and the most coveted pieces to shop right now. After studying journalism in college in Sydney, where she was born, Marina Cortbawi realized her passion lied not so much in writing as it did in working alongside creative people. So she moved to England, where she got an internship with a small London-based clothing designer. Working for an emerging designer, Cortbawi (who had no fashion experience up until that point) was charged with a lot of responsibility—including international sales, a field she knew nothing about at the time, but would become the entryway into her lifelong career in fashion the industry.

Law Roach and Jaime Xie Are Enlivening Street Style, One Vintage Look at a Time

Celebrity style is all about the new. With performers already dipping their toes into spring 2022's wares and influencers filling their feeds with items that just hit stores, the latest developments are well-represented. Sure, vintage-loving stars like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Miley Cyrus pepper their wardrobes with old-school looks, but it's still easier to catch a glimpse of your favorite retro runway looks in a museum than it is to spot someone wearing them out in the real world. When everyone is wearing borrowed looks from the same three collections, it gets old fast.

Canali and 8on8 Teamed Up to Take Us on a (Very Stylish) Trip Abroad

There must be something in the water. Or maybe they’re slipping it into the Negronis. Either way, some of the most revered brands in Italy have caught the collaboration bug in a big way, and even when—actually, especially when—the brands they choose to team up with seem a little out of left field at first, the results have been impressive.

Why Timothée Chalamet Is a Style Icon for the Ages

No stylist? No problem, according to Timothée Chalamet. The actor, who has gained notoriety over the past few years for roles in “Call Me By Your Name,” “Beautiful Boy” and “Little Women,” has also garnered a reputation for his incredible fashion. Rumor has it, he develops his looks all by himself. Not using a stylist by choice in this era of celebrity is a rarity — and a welcomed one. Since Chalamet rose on the scene in 2017, he’s been one to watch on the red carpet, offering ensembles that flips traditional menswear on its head entirely. In a sea of black...

Detroit may not be a city that first comes to mind as a fashion power player — it’s better known for its rich musical history (techno was born there) and of course, for cars. But, for a night editors, stylists, and celebrity trendsetters flocked to the Motor City to take in Bottega Veneta’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway show. The small-format presentation, Salon 03, is the Italian fashion house’s third ready-to-wear collection shown in its new off-schedule format, modeled after the small couture presentations of the early 20th century.
