Gomez goes ’70s glam in Coach campaign

Never has leather looked so good. But when you put Selena Gomez and Coach handbags in the same photo, the results are stunning.

Look no further than the singer-actress’ first-ever campaign for Coach, which ELLE says features Gomez in several ’70s style photos shot by Steven Meisel. Clutching rich leather bags, Gomez is draped in lush furs, giving the photos a luxurious vibe that screams fall fashion.

Conrad unveils swimwear line at Kohl’s

Lauren Conrad’s Kohl’s line is about to get a little bigger.

According to PopSugar, the multi-hyphenate is launching her first-ever “Beach Collection” under her LC Lauren Conrad line, which is set to include “swimwear (both one-pieces and bikinis meant to be mixed and matched), airy drawstring shorts, off-the-shoulder dresses, and other warm-weather essentials, starting at $34.”

Maxing out at $68, PopSugar says the collection has a resort-like feel with tropical prints, with Conrad adding that she chose “very fun colors, like hunter green and paprika, and then some really pretty peaches-and-cream.”

Show your pride in style

June is Pride Month, and as we are celebrating all of the LGBTQ+ friends and loved ones in our lives while also remembering LGBTQ+ history, we need to wear our hearts and our support on our sleeves — literally. But you don’t want to just buy any product; that’s why we compiled a few items that will not only help you celebrate Pride Month in style, but will also benefit some great organizations that support LGBTQ+ rights every day of the year.

Milk Makeup Glitter Stick

In honor of Pride Month, InStyle reports that Milk Makeup has introduced its first glitter product to its lineup. The multipurpose glitter highlighter not only “imparts a subtle sheen and you can put it on your bod, your cheeks, your lips, and your lids,” InStyle says half of its profits will be donated to The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (The Center) in New York City. For $30, this cheerful little stick allows you to “express individuality, inclusivity, freedom, and joy” while also supporting a worthwhile organization.

Custom Converse Pride Shoes

If you’d rather invest in apparel, Converse recently unveiled a customizable line of unisex sneakers that can be tailor-made to your taste. Starting at a base price of $85, their high-top and low-top offerings can have everything from their body to their lining changed. And while you’ll end up with a sweet pair of kicks that will have you celebrating Pride Month well past the final day of June, Converse says the proceeds from each pair of custom Pride shoes sold will benefit the It Gets Better Project and the Happy Hippie Foundation, “two organizations committed to empoweringLGBTQ youth around the world.”

AEO Pride #WeAllCan Graphic Tee

Wear your pride on your sleeve with this #WeAllCan graphic T-shirt from American Eagle, which features the hashtag on the front with a list of all the things the LGBTQ+ community and its allies can do; from “Unite” to “Stand Up” to “Love Everyone,” the list concludes with “Pride 2017” to commemorate this year’s Pride Month. The best part: 100 percent of the proceeds from the sales of this T-shirt will be donated to the It Gets Better Project.

While half of June is already in the books, we still have the rest of the month to celebrate — and remember, standing up, advocating for LGBTQ+ rights and supporting our fellow human doesn’t end once the calendar hits July 1.

Happy Pride Month, everyone.

Orly and MuslimGirl make nail polish for all

The beauty industry just got a little more inclusive, thanks to Orly’s new collaboration.

According to PopSugar, the nail polish company teamed up with MuslimGirl.com to launch #HalalPaint, a line of breathable nail polish that allows Muslim men and women to wear nail polish.

Because traditional nail polish is “believed to create a barrier over the skin, which prevents water from touching every part of the body during ablutions,” PopSugar says that not only does this new product let “oxygen and moisture pass through the polish,” it is also made of “100 percent halal ingredients.”

The six-color line features polish names like “Haram-Bae, The Perfect Amani-Cure, What the Fatima?, Ig-Noor the Haters,” among others, says PopSugar, which were chosen by MuslimGirl.com founder Amani Al-Khatahtbeh and her staff.

Speaking on the impact of the new line, Al-Khatahtbeh told PopSugar that the line is a way of making the beauty industry much more inclusive.

“Many of us are the girls who could never find our names on a keychain, so we wanted to make sure we provided that experience through the collection,” Al-Khatahtbeh said. “This collection is an incredible way to acknowledge the diverse religions that also exist in the beauty world. Although the polishes were made for Muslim women, anyone can wear them!”

The new line will be available starting July 1, but PopSugar says the six-piece collection is currently available for pre-order on halalpaint.com for $49.

SJP unveils new sneakers to collection

Sarah Jessica Parker is adding yet another style to her SJP Collection, and it’s just about the most fabulous sneaker you’ve ever seen.

According to ELLE, the multi-hyphenate just unveiled the Meteor shoe, a “T-Strap flat that sparkles like the night sky,'” which means the shoe is completely blinged out. The new style debuted in a joyful Instagram post, in which Parker twirled and skipped through the streets as the shoes sparkled in the sun.

While ELLE says these “sneakers” may just be a glorified flat that should skip the gym trip, this style is certainly an eye-catcher.

Lawrence stars in new Dior video

Jennifer Lawrence is set to take centerstage in a brand new video for Dior.

According to WWD, the project, which is a follow-up to her pre-fall ad campaign where she donned a “We Should All Be Feminists” T-shirt, is shot by French photographer Brigette Lacombe and is directed by Fabien Baron.

Called “La Fille Américaine,” WWD reports that the black-and-white video “features Lawrence (‘La Fille’) with her Dior bag (‘Le Sac’), a flower (‘La Fleur’), playing with a canary in a birdcage, sitting in a chair texting ‘Le Texto,’ staring into the camera, applying lipstick, looking sad and looking happy.”

The plot doesn’t pick up much from there, says WWD, but a behind-the-scenes video shows Lawrence discussing how it feels to work with female professionals.

“It’s exciting to work with a woman photographer because, frankly, there aren’t very many,” she said. “Whenever I think of a feminist, I think of a confident woman.”

Swimsuits for All offers new ‘Baywatch’ style

Sexy swimwear isn’t just for tiny Hollywood actresses — thanks to Swimsuits for All, they’re available for anyone of any size.

According to InStyle, photos released in March showed Ashley Graham, Teyana Taylor and Niki Taylor all donning a red Baywatch-style swimsuit, complete with a high-cut leg and scoop back, in a Swimsuits for All ad campaign. The images were of course body positive, says InStyle, as each model “rocks her suit with her own signature style and personality interjected.”

But InStyle reports that those photos were only preceding the public launch of the swimsuit, which is now available on Swimsuits for All’s website. The $84 swimsuit is sold in sizes ranging from four to 22, so anyone who opts for the suit can feel sexy all summer long.
