Lady Gaga has officially kicked off Pride weekend in New York. The “Born This Way” singer was spotted at her family restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, bartending for guests and posing for photos on Friday night.
She kept her look Pride-inspired, wearing Joanne merchandise, including a 2019 World Pride Parade oversized rainbow flag tee. She paired the ensemble with the restaurant’s hat and black leather moto ankle boots. Her best accessory of all? A box of pizza.
Earlier in the day, Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance at Z100 Pride Live’s Stonewall Day concert at the historic Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. The event has special significance this year as it honors the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which is considered the catalyst of the gay equal rights movement.
Gaga strutted onto the stage in head-to-toe custom Versace. She rocked the rainbow outfit, wearing a multi-colored cropped jacket, which she paired with denim shorts complete with dangling rainbow tassels and sparkling platform Versace boots.
She said onstage, “The universe brought us together in the spirit of kindness and we, together, we’re a powerhouse.”
Millie Bobby Brown looked pretty in pink Rodarte at the Season 3 premiere of “Stranger Things” on Friday night in Los Angeles. The actress hit the red carpet wearing a custom pink silk organza ruffled dress, which she paired with matching Tabitha Simmons heels.
The Leticia pale-pink block heeled sandals are rendered in moire and feature an ankle-strap. The shoes retail for $645.
Brown was accompanied by the rest of the “Stranger Things” cast, including Noah Schapp, who gave her a hand at the event, holding her Rodarte cape for photos. He was decked in head-to-toe Fendi for the occasion.
Co-star Sadie Sink also sported pink for the premiere, wearing Sophia Webster Coco pumps detailed with crystal-embellished stilettos.
Later in the evening, Brown was spotted dancing at the after-party sans heels. Instead, she swapped the Tabitha Simmons sandals for a pair of pink Dr. Martens boots.
Ivanka Trump made a pit stop in South Korea on Saturday. She joined her father, President Donald Trump, at the “blue house,” which is know as the presidential palace in South Korea, to meet with President Moon Jae-i for a state dinner.
Ivanka dressed fittingly for the visit, wearing a pale blue sleeved dress paired with classic white pumps. There, she also met popular K-pop boy band EXO and took selfies with the members. EXO then presented Trump and Ivanka with a signed copy of their latest album “Love Shot.”
The president is in Korea for a two-day visit that will include a summit with President Moon and a possible trip to the Demilitarized Zone that divides the two Koreas.
Earlier on Saturday, Ivanka and Trump attended day two of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan. Ivanka took the stage during the women’s empowerment event to emphasize gender equality. She wore a pale pink belted dress detailed with flowing sleeves and a floral print, paired with nude suede pumps for the occasion.
On Friday, Ivanka mingled with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during the G20 Summit wearing another light blue dress.
The midi dress was detailed by a contrasting gray-blue graphic pattern with splits down the sleeves, while white floral appliqué around the collar and wrists added ultra-feminine touches. For shoes, she went with a complementary white pump with a classic pointed toe on a nearly 4-inch stiletto heel.
Baseball just got a little bit cooler. On Saturday in London, Price Harry and Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at the New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox game at the London Stadium in England.
This is the first time Major League Baseball will play regular season games in London, and the players certainly received a royal welcome.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped on to the field to commemorate the first pitch. And prior to the start of the game, the couple met with both teams where they received personalized jerseys for their son Archie.
Both Prince Harry and Markle kept their clothing neutral for the occasion. Markle opted for a short black belted dress, which she paired with Aquazzura ballet flats. The $695 Deneuve shoes, featuring an upward bow and side cutouts, are the low-heeled version of the label’s pumps she often is spotted in.
Her husband kept his outfit simple, too, wearing an Invictus Games polo, dark pants and lace-up shoes.
The Yankees and Red Sox will meet for one more game on Sunday in London.
We are just one day away from the start of Paris Couture Week and Celine Dion is busy putting on her own fashion show in the City of Lights. The singer stepped out on Saturday in a leggy, Off-White ensemble that came straight off the runway.
The pre-fall graffiti look made its debut on model Gigi Hadid during Virgil Abloh’s spring ’20 men’s show in Paris earlier this month. Clearly, Dion was a fan because she wore the same outfit, complete with the oversized blazer and matching body suit, paired with Off-White’s neoprene strappy sandals.
Later in the evening, the singer switched her day attire for another colorful outfit. She wore a ruffled, strapless and fuchsia dress with black, crystal-embellished sandals for a Miu Miu Club event.
Her fashion escapades hit a high note on Friday when Dion turned heads in a feathers-and-fur ensemble. She wore a strapless bustier-style Attico top with ostrich feathers dyed in a shade of pale pink, which retails for nearly $2,000. She completed her look with white stiletto sandals boasting a furry light-pink toe strap.
The 51-year-old singer is in town for the European leg of her world tour. Next up, she will head to London for a show at Hyde Park on July 5.
Zoë Kravitz’s wedding to Karl Glusman was a star-studded affair. On Saturday in Paris, celebrities flocked to witness the nuptials.
Kravitz’s “Big Little Lies” co-stars, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Nicole Kidman (with husband Keith Urban) made an appearance.
Other big names, such as Denzel Washington, Donald Glover and Chris Pine, were spotted heading into the event. More guests included Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson and Eddie Redmayne.
Kravitz and Glusman were first linked in 2016. The two announced their engagement in 2018, and today, they celebrated their marriage with a ceremony held at her dad, Lenny Kravitz’s, mansion in France.
On Friday, the couple attended their rehearsal dinner at Restaurant Lapérouse in Paris. There, the soon-to-be bride wore a custom white, strapless pearl ensemble by Danielle Frankel and was surrounded by family, including her mother, Lisa Bonet, and step-father, Jason Momoa.
I’m constantly chatting with Who What Wear’s editors to get their takes on the coolest fashion trends of the moment and the brands they’re most excited about. After all, it’s our jobs to know what’s happening in fashion—what’s cool and what’s about to be cool—and my fellow editors are always introducing me to new labels that weren’t on my radar before.
With the summer months upon us, I’ve been tapping them to find out which swimsuit brands they’re excited about and the ones that they think will define fashion for the season ahead. Here, they’re highlighting the best swimsuit brands of the season, which you’ll be sure to spot them wearing within a matter of weeks. From buzzy designers that everyone is talking about to their go-to brands for affordable finds, these are their favorites. Go on to shop their picks and see which cool swimwear labels made it onto my short list.
Summertime is full of activities—such as pool parties and beach days—that really only require one wardrobe essential: a swimsuit, and well, maybe a good sunhat and sunnies, too. Considering how many events that are sure to pop up in your schedule in the coming weeks will, in fact, call for a one- or two-piece, now might be the time start freshening up your swimwear collection by repurposing the old (i.e., styles fading in color and showing signs of serious wear and tear) and scooping up the latest and greatest ones to hit the fashion scene in 2019.
The choices are endless, but we thought we’d help you navigate the overwhelming selection by spotlighting the 20 best swimsuit brands that we’re absolutely head over heels for. Each offers something exceptional, whether that be sustainable fabrics, comfy silhouettes, or affordable prices (some even hit on all three!), and they’re super trend-forward as well. Want something minimal but chic? Andie Swim is for you. Or how about a suit that’s not only easy on the eyes but easy on the wallet, too? Cupshe is calling your name. Ahead, 20 swimwear brands we’re shopping this summer. Trust us—the below labels are every fashion girl’s best-kept summertime secret.
Planning which skincare products to bring on a trip already presents quite the pickle. Consider the TSA travel-size rule alone, and what? Are we supposed to buy all our favorite serums and cleansers in travel size? The indignity! But the task of planning what to bring when you’re going to five different cities in a row with varying climates all the while dealing with the dryness of air travel, your period (because it always insists on coming at the most inconvenient times), and the stress of being on a book tour makes strategizing your skincare routine even more challenging.
Indeed, I spent the entire month of June on tour promoting my first book, Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language. (I guess you could consider me a beauty editor by day and a linguist by night.) I went to D.C., New York, New Orleans, L.A., and San Francisco—five environments that call for rather different skincare necessities. Looking glowy, breakout-free, and photo-ready for my book events was super important to me, so I pretty much packed my entire life into my skincare bag. Better to be prepared for anything, I figured! But at the end of it all, I wound up using 13 choice products along the way (which of course varied from city to city). Curious how I kept my skin in check throughout my book-tour adventures? Keep scrolling to check out the skin-saving travel products I relied on.
To put it simply, giving birth is no easy feat. But once you’ve already gone through the process of pregnancy—and the maternity clothes that come with it—it’s time to focus on spending as much time as you need with your newborn bundle of joy. But with that in mind, you were just carrying your baby for nine months. Needless to say, your body has gone through a series of drastic changes in a seemingly short amount of time, and your postpartum period is no different.
As you adjust your life to the newest addition to your family, there’s a good chance you’ll be spending the new handful of months in your most comfortable clothes yet (hello, pajamas and loungewear!). But for the moments when you want to give yourself a little more lift, it doesn’t hurt to have some postpartum shapewear for added support.
Whether you want a bodysuit to wear under a sleek dress or a pair of tummy control panties or shorts for your favorite jeans, there are plenty of shapewear pieces to suit your post-pregnancy sartorial needs. Scroll down to see them below.
Tummy-control underwear is the easiest way to give your postpartum middle section an extra lift, no matter what you decide to wear. Look for those high-waist silhouettes. If you want ultimate comfort, opt for seamless styles.
Waist wraps and bands are perfect for new mothers looking for additional support to their everyday ensembles. Pair them with other shapewear options, such as shorts or a bodysuit.
Anything with extensive tummy-control is a great option for new moms. And if you decide to wear a skirt and want extra coverage, these are the perfect styles to own.
For those of you who prefer something that gives you control for all areas of your torso, opt for a shaping tank top or bodysuit. Just be sure to go for styles that help make nursing easier.
Summer is an exquisite season for many reasons. It’s warm and sunny, everyone’s in a pleasant mood, vacations are booked, and wardrobes are light and airy. On top of all of that, it also happens to be a season when a ton of crazy-good sales go down, which means adding to your collection of breezy separates and stocking up on sweaters and such for autumn is an affordable and stylish affair.
Right now, we have our eye on a slew of markdowns from some of our favorite brands. There are floral dresses from Reformation, designer heels from the likes of Rejina Pyo and Cult Gaia, gorgeous straw bags from artisanal labels like Alienina and Nannacay, and so much more. In other words, if you love fashion and love getting it at a budget-friendly price, it’s time to act fast. Continue ahead to shop these amazing sale finds before they’re gone for good.
A pretty quick way to know if you’re dressing well for the office is to consider what your career idol wears and compare your wardrobe to theirs. Don’t worry, you don’t have to invest the same amount of money in your closet as they might, but rather, think of these powerhouses as your own personal professional dressing gurus whenever you’re putting together a 9-to-5 look.
Take, for instance, Anna Wintour. Vogue‘s editor in chief dresses for the job she has. She’s a powerful, creative businessperson who always looks polished and professional, yet somehow her style doesn’t feel stale. Rather, it feels bold and exciting. This is in huge part thanks to the fact that she’s cultivated a personal aesthetic that works for her everyday look. From her staple sunglasses to boldly printed dresses to statement necklaces that typically adorn her neckline, she’s got it nailed down.
Whether or not you work in the fashion industry, it’s safe to say that most of us would enjoy getting a few style tips for the office from this mogul. So why not settle for the second best thing and see which budget-friendly pieces from Topshop, Zara, and Mango she’d pick for your boardroom look? Continue ahead to find out what they are and shop the picks that’ll reinvigorate your work week.
It’s no secret that Wintour’s accessory of choice is that of the statement bauble. That’s why a bold jewelry piece should be in your office rotation; it elevates even the simplest of staples from a button-down shirt to a sheath dress.
If you’ve followed Wintour’s style advice over the years, then you already know she’s a huge advocate for wearing color, which is why we suspect she’d be in favor of your 9-to-5 wardrobe being chock-full of them.
Wintour is rarely seen not in a boldly printed piece, and that’s why a floral dress ought to be in your office repertoire right now.
Though Wintour is usually in a pair of heels, she’s rarely wearing a pair that feel too high or uncomfortable.
When in doubt, a matching set by way of a skirt suit or something in a similar vein is a smart choice for the office.
Up Next: Anna Wintour discussed the five basics everyone should own.
Welcome to “I Tried It” Week. From our editor in chief purging over 19 shoes from her closet to our assistant editor dressing exclusively in vintage, follow along this week as the Who What Wear editors take on personal wardrobe challenges and document the process along the way.
I would like to preface this by admitting that this whole story is honestly embarrassing for me to write. I first downloaded Instagram back in 2010 before everyone else was doing it (not a flex, just the truth). Back then, Instagram was so different. You didn’t really have “friends” to follow; you just had the small pool of other people who were posting artsy pictures that weren’t important enough to have taken with a real camera. At first, I did not understand what the app was for at all. I remember thinking, why would anyone post a photo here where no one will see it versus on Facebook where you can get validated by all your friends? My best friend had to explain the intention of 2010 Instagram to me, and she was the one who ultimately convinced me to get it.
Fast-forward to 2019, and I am now fully addicted to the app. Not to make snap judgments, but I feel comfortable saying most other people are too. Throw in the fact that I’m a fashion editor and a large portion of my job deals with the sartorial side of Instagram, and before you know it, I’m basically on the app all day every day. It was time for a break. Deleting the app was something I had been thinking about for a long time. I hated how much time I was spending on it, I hated how it was clearly affecting my mindset about outfits and experiences, and I really hated how it was affecting certain relationships in my life. Writing a story about my experience sans Instagram was just the excuse I needed to finally pull the plug.
I didn’t do a dramatic post telling everyone I was deleting it because I felt like that kind of defeated the purpose, relationally at least. I told my closest friends and my family so that they didn’t think I died or something, but besides that, I just simply deleted the app from my phone and went from there. So far, I have been without Instagram for a week straight. I used this past week to really reflect on how my day to day has changed without mindlessly scrolling on the app. Beyond spending significantly less time on my phone (which I have loved, by the way), not having Instagram has impacted my overall style choices in more ways than one—five, to be exact. Some of the realizations are more difficult to admit than others, but hey, I’m all for transparency these days.
Ahead, read all about the five style realizations I experienced when I deleted Instagram for the first time in nine years. Did I download the app immediately after my one-week stint was up? Duh. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t learn a lot along the way.
As I mentioned before, my job frequently involves taking photos of my outfits. I will admit this is actually my least favorite part of my job, but I do it anyway to either better inform stories or to support the brands I love. Because of this, getting dressed each day felt like a bit of a chore. It wasn’t until deleting Instagram that I realized I was choosing pieces I thought would look good in a photo over the pieces that I actually felt comfortable in. When I say comfortable, I don’t mean hoodies and leggings. I mean things that make me feel like the true me. That’s a hard thing to admit, especially since I pride myself on my confidence and not giving a crap about what people think about me, but I discovered this week that I care a lot more than I realized.
Without the app, my outfit choice for the day was solely determined by my mood and the weather. Removing any pressure I was putting on myself to look some type of way for other people freed me up to be more in touch with what I was actually feeling. It was really nice.
To piggyback off of the previous realization, that pressure I felt to have an Instagram-worthy outfit day in and day out resulted in me spending way too much time getting ready in the mornings. I am not a morning person as it is, so believe me when I say I need all the time I can get when it comes to prepping in the a.m. Ever since this Instagram break, I have found that my mornings are much more enjoyable, and that doesn’t just include the time I spend ideating outfits. Upon waking up, I don’t have this unnecessary urge to check Instagram right as my eyeballs are still opening. I don’t re-check the app before I put on my makeup or again before I walk out the door. If I’m being honest, I probably used to waste 15 to 20 minutes every morning dillydallying on Instagram. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather spend that time sleeping.
I have a lot of stuff—like a lot. Not just because of what my job entails but also because I’ve always been a too-much-stuff kind of a girl. Clearly, I love Instagram, but the app is designed to give you FOMO—FOMO on experiences and products. I’m less of a FOMO freak when it comes to experiences (I’m honestly kind of a loner), but in the shopping realm, I definitely fear what will happen if I don’t own the newest Ganni cowboy boots. It’s a sickness.
I really was. I would scroll through Instagram saving and liking photos up the wazoo ultimately with the intention to purchase in the very near future. It’s hard to not want to buy the newest By Far shoes when you open Instagram and see five of your favorite influencers styling them in the sickest ways. But I realized that I was letting Instagram dictate an embarrassing amount of my purchases. Did I really want those By Far shoes? Or had I just seen them so many times on my Instagram feed that I was somehow convinced to feel like buying them was absolutely necessary?
I absolutely love wearing new things, but contrary to most people (I would assume), I love wearing new things because I enjoy supporting my favorite brands, especially on Instagram. So yes, maybe I am stoked to wear my new Cinco anklets because they are chic as hell, but I also love wearing them because sharing the brand with my followers brings me just as much joy as the items themselves. Without that ability, I felt a tad less excited to don my latest purchases, but that didn’t mean I loved them any less. Does that make sense?
In conclusion, I actually loved not having Instagram this week. It was challenging, but taking a break from it was something I realized I really needed. Moving forward, I plan on being more mindful with my intentions while scrolling on the app, but overall, I will admit that I am excited to download it once again tomorrow. See ya on the ‘gram!
Welcome to #WhoWhatWearing, a series in which we highlight you, our stylish community of readers. Each of the following looks came straight from a photo you tagged us in on Instagram. Want to be featured next time? You guessed it: Use #WhoWhatWearing on the outfit posts you want us to see.
Personal truth: I’m a creature of habit. Once I find something I like, I tend to continue to gravitate toward it over and over again without realizing. This rings especially true for my Instagram saved collections—I find myself repeatedly saving the same pieces from multiple accounts. The saddest part is I don’t even notice I do this until I take a look back at my recent saved posts and they all look eerily alike.
I noticed this phenomenon happening with all of my latest shoe photos. Each one of my many saves features the same five summer shoe trends, which tells me that I’m really into them, and they’re everywhere. From strappy ’90s sandals to nouveau flip-flops, below are five of summer 2019’s biggest shoe trends. Keep scrolling to see my favorite posts and shop these trends for yourself.
This year’s most flattering shoe trend is still going strong. Nicknamed the “floss heel“, these strappy sandals give a nod to the ’90s with barely there details. They pair well with everything, and as an added bonus, make your legs look instantly longer.
Blame Chanel, but summer 2019 is all about slides. Not only are these the most comfortable sandal style, they also go with virtually any outfit combination you can think of.
Sandals with unique toe detailing are all over the internet right now—and are actually surprisingly comfortable. I love the way this style pairs with skirts and dresses for summer.
Heeled flip-flops are a thing, people! Don’t hate the messenger but this is one polarizing trend I’ll admit I’m super into. When it’s paired with vintage denim, I really can’t think of anything else I’d rather wear right now.
The sneaker trend is still going strong (I mean, was it ever not?), and fashion people are pairing them with everything from dresses to pantsuits to midi skirts right now.
By now, you’ve probably surmised that we receive, test-drive, and review a lot of beauty products here at Who What Wear HQ. From nail polish and makeup to hair and skincare, we’re eyebrow-deep in all things new, exciting, and, yes, wish list–worthy. That said, due to the number of products we come in contact with on a daily basis, we’ve also transformed into the nitpickiest beauty consumers. Within seconds, we can tell if a new hair oil is too heavy and greasy, and we’re quick to ignore a serum or foundation that yields disappointing results (no matter how many hype emails it has sitting in our inboxes—sorry!).
The good news? We’re far more often impressed than unimpressed after trying out a new product, and usually, we simply can’t wait to spread the word to all of our fellow beauty junkies (aka you). Therefore, we’ve decided gushing over our latest fave products should become a monthly ritual, and every 30 days or so, you can expect a full report detailing the highlighters, hair wands, and overnight skincare saviors we’ve become quickly addicted to.
For the most part, we’ll be covering new and buzzworthy launches (as those typically take up most of the action atop our product-filled desks), but we won’t dismiss the new-to-us products, either. Because, hey, sometimes our best discoveries are found on an old friend’s vanity or on someone’s face at the bar—true story. Ahead, the 28 best beauty products we tried in June! Grab your game face and wallet. You’ll be needing both.
We here at Who What Wear love to exchange shopping tips—sales, rare finds, best vintage shops, you name it. But the thing we love to share most is when we find a truly great piece; the kind you can’t stop wearing, thinking, and talking about. It’s somewhat of a daily occurrence at our office that someone walks in wearing something dreamy that they just can’t wait to gush about. Whether that’s the perfect work bag, a pair of earrings that transform an entire outfit, or jeans that fit just right (you know the kind I’m talking about).
Well, today I’m here to gush to you about one of my personal favorite categories (and one that sparks a lot of the aforementioned conversations at WWW HQ): shoes. You guys shop a lot of shoes we feature on the site, so the best-selling styles almost seem like they have the personal stamp of approval from you, our dear readers. I decided to take one for the team and put each top seller through a wear test (for context, I tapped our commerce strategist for data on the top styles). Below, I’m giving you the rundown on what those styles are, how they actually feel wearing them around all day, and photos of how I styled them.
Strappy ’90s heels (or floss sandals, if you will) are arguably the biggest shoe trend of the year. And this iteration from Reformation hits on every detail perfectly—barely there straps, bold color, and leg-lengthening heel height (3.5 inches, to be exact). At first, I thought the red colorway would be hard to interject into my wardrobe but quickly realized they actually add a nice pop of color to almost anything I tried to pair them with.
I typically don’t wear a ton of color, so these slid in quite nicely with my mostly neutral outfit choices. The one mistake I did make was wearing them to the office. Don’t get me wrong, they are comfortable, but wearing them all day at the office and then straight to dinner after was a bit tough on my feet. As someone who doesn’t wear heels to work on a regular basis, that was a long day for me. Moving forward these are going to be my evening shoes for the summer.
I’ve yet to meet a slide sandal I don’t like, but these Steven Greece Sandals take the cake. They’re insanely comfortable, go with absolutely everything, and are a minimalist girl’s dream. I tested these twice—once to my office where I’m doing equal parts sitting and standing, and again that weekend in Laguna Beach. The leather doesn’t dig into your foot in the slightest, and despite the shoe’s thin soles, I had zero foot pain after walking around town all day. These have since become a staple in my shoe wardrobe, and I’m even thinking about ordering them in another color since summer is just beginning. Oh, and you can’t really beat the price point for a slide of this quality.
As far as white sneakers go, I’m in a very committed relationship with the same Stan Smiths and Chuck Taylors I’ve been wearing for years. I keep them on heavy rotation and rarely stray. But these Supergas are giving them a run for their money. The platform makes them feel a bit more feminine than your average trainer, yet it’s surprisingly comfortable.
I’ll admit I was a bit hesitant at first because of the 1.5 inch platform (and a bit nervous for my ankles), but I barely noticed the thick sole walking around in them all day—aside from when I went to reach for the top shelf in my kitchen that I usually struggle to touch but now could with ease. They’re also shockingly light given the added weight on the sole of the shoe. These are 10/10 being added to my sneaker lineup.
Another pair of sleek sandals you guys are obsessed with: H&M’s leather slides. This woven style is minimal with chic detailing and structured enough to even be worn to the office. As you can see by the below crop top, I did not wear these to the office, but I did wear these on a busy Saturday and received multiple inquiries from strangers on their origin.
They’re also insanely comfortable—I ran around all day in them and then slipped them back on to go to a dinner that night. If you’re looking for an everyday sandal this summer that’s easy, comfortable, and has just the right amount of design, these are it.
