“Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.”

6 Beauty Vloggers You Should Be Following

1) Alli Speed 

Why You Should Subscribe: Alli travels a lot, which means you’ll get to see a bunch of cool items from around the world in her haul videos.

2) Zoella

Why You Should Subscribe: She’s more like a stylish friend than a beauty expert. This is great for two reasons: 1) Her tutorials aren’t over-the-top, they’re mostly everyday looks and you don’t need much experience to be able to pull them off. 2) The hauls contain cute products that are usually affordable.

3) Michelle Phan

Why You Should Subscribe: Her beauty transformations are works of art. She can make herself look like anyone, from celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Cara Delevingne to characters like Princess Jasmine and Catwoman.

4) Kandee Johnson

Why You Should Subscribe: Like Michelle Phan, Kandee does some amazing beauty transformations (mainly of celebrities and movie characters).

5) Yuya

Why You Should Subscribe: She does a bit of everything—Fashion & Beauty DIYs, Hair & Makeup Tutorials, Beauty Favorites, Styling Tips, etc. Plus, she’s extremely colorful and energetic!

6) Talia Joy

Why You Should Subscribe: Unfortunately, Talia lost her fight with cancer on July 16, 2013. However, her YouTube channel is still up and I think the fact that she became a makeup guru at the age of 13 is reason enough to scroll through some of her old videos.

Feminist Fashionistas March Down “Boulevard Chanel”

Chanel was not afraid to get political during its Spring/Summer 2015 show today at Paris Fashion Week. Karl Lagerfeld lead models (such as Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner) down “Boulevard Chanel” with “Fashion Not War” and “Free Freedom” signs.

Although an awesome spectacle, some began to question whether or not Lagerfeld should be the one to lead a feminist march. The main reason why many found fault with Lagerfeld? His negative comments about “curvy” and “fat” women, including this comment he made about Adele:

“She [Adele] is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”

Lagerfeld drama aside, the clothes were fantastic. I would wake up excited for work on Mondays if I could wear these outfits.

Seriously, nobody does tweed like Chanel.

The collection also included a lot of watercolor prints and peace symbols that screamed the ’70s, adding to the women’s rights movement theme.

In conclusion, feminist fashionistas: YAY! Lagerfeld’s thoughts on curvy women: NAY!

Like many of us, Rita Ora didn’t seem to care for Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” performance.

Nicki’s performance of “Bang Bang” with Jessie J & Ariana Grande was less porn-like, even with the wardrobe malfunction.

Miley Cyrus let her homeless friend, Jesse, give her acceptance speech in order to spread awareness of youth homelessness.

 

After Beyonce’s performance, we all “awed” at Jay Z and Blue Ivy handing Queen Bey the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
