Celebrities are always modeling the hottest handbags or rocking the coolest sunglasses. But there’s another accessory category that’s slowly taking over. Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to reintroduce you to the water bottle. Yeah, you read that correctly. Instead of carrying around plastic options, stars are accessorizing with reusable water bottles.
In addition to cutting down on waste, the tubes won’t contaminate beverages since they are BPA/BPS free. Oh, and did we mention the designs are extremely cute? They come in so many colors and have just as many fun designs as traditional accessories. So no matter what the celebrities are wearing, they look good while doing good. That’s definitely a win-win.

Kathleen Whitaker’s first stone jewelry line became an instant favorite among InStyle fashion editors when it débuted last spring. All of us were absolutely smitten with the raw cuts and vivid colors, so it was no surprise that a pair of aquamarine earrings and a quartz ring would wind up on our now famous October 2016 FLOTUS cover. I was more than thrilled to hear that Whitaker was launching a second stone collection, and after seeing the pieces, I can say that this assemblage surpassed my expectations. Known for not restricting rare, beautiful stones within gold forms, she selected amber, pietersite, and even vintage Venetian drawn glass beads as some of the features in these very special pieces.
Today, this collection is available for purchase on her own website, but it will also be available for the very first time at the Barneys New York flagship location in N.Y.C. from April 28 to May 21.

Bridal Fashion Week is already in full swing in New York City, where designers are showing their spring 2018 collections. But that doesn’t mean it’s all strapless gowns, quite the opposite. Swoon-worthy long-sleeve wedding silhouettes are attracting their fair share of attention.

If these celebrity looks don’t convince you to ditch your flatiron and call up your salon, we don’t know what will.
If eyes are considered the window to the soul, then mascara is basically a set of boudoir-esque lace curtains.
