Denim Décor for Your Home That’s Anything But Tacky

When it comes to all-American fashion, there’s nothing more iconic than denim. It’s the centerpiece of so many memorable outfits, from James Dean’s classic jacket to Britney and Justin’s legendary matching ensembles. And somehow, decade after decade, it’s always on-trend. This month, we’re talking all things denim, and while that means tons of awesome clothing, we’d hate to ignore the amazing ways designers and brands are taking denim into the home space.

Because denim is made of ultra-wearable cotton, it’s basically the perfect upholstery fabric. Plus, the cool-girl vibe that comes with anything chambray, dark-wash, or faded makes it just right for room accessories and accent pieces. Here, nine ways to work denim into every room in your home, even the bathroom.

Facial Sunscreens Dermatologists Swear By

You’ve probably been told that wearing SPF is a non-negotiable beauty rule, but that doesn’t help you find the right product to put on your face. It’s first (and most important) line of business is protecting your skin from cancer-causing UV rays, but it’s also vital for combatting signs of premature aging. Two biggies, right? To help you find all-star formulas you can count on all year long, we reached out to top dermatologists to find out the facial sunscreens they recommend and swear by. Scroll through for all the shopping details.

See the Spectacular Looks and Jewels from Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Collection Gala

Has anyone truly ever looked like a million bucks?

Ask Ruth Negga, who hit the gray carpet in a fantastically ornate leopard-print Gucci dress that she paired with—get this—$2.2 million-worth of Tiffany & Co. diamonds. The occasion? The 2017 unveiling of the brand’s Blue Book Collection, hosted by Chairman Michael Kowalski inside St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.

Negga’s Gucci number reminded us of her fearlessness when it comes to fashion, but those jewels though! The diamond rings were indeed gorgeous, however, you have to take a closer look at the $1.1 million choker she wore. It was the perfect cherry on top of her Best Dressed-worthy outfit. Citing stylist Karla Welch as her secret weapon, Negga told us all about her love for experimenting with clothing.

“If people don’t like it, well, that’s their problem. I don’t wear clothes because I want to piss someone off or anything, I wear it because I think it’s beautiful,” she told InStyle. “Everyone has the right to look beautiful, whatever body shape or however you look. It’s very important that we’re all involved, because it is an art form. I firmly believe that.”

We also spotted the artful jewels on Haley Bennett, who paired her Cinderella-like J. Mendel gown with $700,000 in Tiffany diamonds. Don’t think she’s used to it, though. “I’ve never opened my own Tiffany Blue box. My mother had a few pieces and I always looked up to her. When she was wearing them, I observed that she was more confident,” she told us. “Hopefully she’ll pass those pieces down to me. That would be special.”

For Reese Witherspoon, the evening conjured memories of that final Big Little Lies episode in which her character, Madeline, dresses up as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s for a party. “I think it’s extraordinarily chic and I love that she has on big eyelashes at 6 a.m., a full face of makeup at 6 o’clock in the morning,” she told us, explaining how much she loves that iconic sleep mask with the white shirtdress.

Jennifer Hudson‘s sexy and yellow ruffled DSquared2 piece caused a commotion on the carpet (“Yes Jennifer! More Jennifer! This way Jennifer!” photographers screamed), while Claire Danes kept it classic in black velvet Monse, which, naturally, required a $525,000 Tiffany necklace. Danes later told us all about the jewel that’s near and dear to her heart. “My husband gave me a watch that’s kind of chunky,” she told us. “I lost it for a while and it reappeared. Jewelry does that. It goes away and then it comes back. It has its own power and I’ve been enjoying its reemergence.”

Let’s just hope Negga didn’t let go of that $1.1 million stunner.

Online, you can choose free samples at checkout from an array of products. So where else can you get free beauty samples? Tons of places!

Samples are great for a multitude of reasons. For one, you save money! You get to try out new products and see if they work for you before committing to a full size (and price tag).

Erin Moran also starred in a spin-off series Joanie Loves Chachi

US actress Erin Moran, best known for playing Joanie in 1970s sitcom Happy Days, has died, aged 56.

Police said an emergency team in Indiana responded to a call on Saturday afternoon and found her dead.

The cause is not yet known.

Richie was played by Ron Howard, who has been among those posting the first tributes online.

Moran joined the Happy Days cast in 1974 when she was 13.

She also made appearances in Murder She Wrote and The Waltons.

In recent years, she was reported to be living in an Indiana trailer park.

In 2010, she joined various Happy Days co-stars in filing a lawsuit against television network CBS, claiming they were owed money from merchandising revenues.

The suit was settled in 2012, with the actors each receiving a payout of $65,000 (£50,000).

They originally asked for $10m.
