May 17th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding: Everything You Need to Know

After months of excitement and drama, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding is finally happening on May 19th, and you can be sure we’ll be watching it live! Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming nuptials.

Who, What, Where, When
Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle are being married at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday, May 19th.

How to Watch
If your invite got lost in the mail like mine obviously did, you can watch the wedding live on NBC, PBS, CBS, or at nytimes.com at 7 a.m. EST/10 a.m. PST.

The Dress
Of course, we can’t wait to see what everyone wears to this very special occasion. Meghan’s dress is being kept secret, but the rumor mill has named these three designers as most likely to have made her gown: Erdem Moralioglu, Roland Mouret and the Ralph & Russo duo (who designed the gown Markle wore in her engagement photographs).

The Dress Code
Expect to see the men wearing either a “uniform, morning coat, or lounge suit,” and the ladies wearing a “day dress with hat” according the invitation. We will likely see many hats and fascinators, like the kind Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice wore at  Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.

Celebs We Expect to See in Attendance
Besides the growing list of superstars rumored to be performing (Ed Sheeran, The Spice Girls, Elton John, and Sam Smith to name a few), we expect to see the likes of the Clooneys, Serena Williams, Meghan’s Suits co-stars, and Priyanka Chopra.

The Drama
Maybe it’s because Prince Harry has had his own controversies, or maybe it’s because Meghan is the first American to marry into the royal family since 1937. One thing’s for sure: there’s been drama surrounding this couple since the engagement announcement. From Meghan’s father flip-flopping on walking her down the aisle, to her family working with paparazzi to bad mouth her to the press—even though they seemingly don’t have relationships with her—we hope the drama will cease once the wedding is over.

What Does This Mean for Prince Harry’s Line to the Throne?
Not much. Prince Harry is currently sixth in line to the throne, right behind the newest royal family member, Prince Louis of Cambridge (son of Prince William and Duchess Kate). The marriage will not change the order to the throne.

May 4th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile ’90s Style Icons We’re Still Inspired By Today

Ah, the ’90s. The decade of grunge, hip hop, pop, and preppy style that continues to inspire us today. If you didn’t grow up in the ’90s, chances are you’ve heard time and time again that they were the best time for fashion and music, and—though I may be biased—I have to agree.

There’s a reason why ’90s style trends are constantly coming back; the carefree spirit and attitude of ’90s fashion hasn’t been able to be recreated or replicated. Why fix something if it’s not broken?  Let’s celebrate by taking a look back at some of the biggest style icons of the decade.

 

90's style icons

Lisa Bonet
One of the most sought after young actresses in the ’80s and ’90s, Lisa Bonet has a rebellious, free-spirited, bohemian style all her own that we still covet today. Lisa’s daughter, actress Zoe Kravitz, has inherited her mother’s style and become a modern fashion icon in her own right.

 

Drew Barrymore
From grunge to happy hippie, Drew’s style embodies her free spirit and was as expressive as her contagious smile. As long as ’90s trends keep coming back in style, ’90s Drew will always be an inspiration!

 

Gwen Stefani
Mixing classic, punk, and athleisure style, there is no doubt (pun intended) that Gwen Stefani is a quintessential ’90s girl.

 

Winona Ryder
Before the legal controversies and her comeback with Stranger Things, Winona Ryder was a ’90s movie star and style icon. Her grunge style and attitude made her one of the “it” girls of the decade!

 

Kate Moss
Supermodel Kate Moss just has classic street style; we could literally wear the exact outfits today and be super on trend!

 

Jennifer Aniston
For over 20 years, Jennifer Aniston has been a consistent style icon, having crafted the perfect classic, effortless style we all crave.

April 19th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Celebrity Fashion Trends Seen at Coachella 2018

It’s that time of year again: music festival season! From Coachella to Lollapalooza and all the festivals in between, it’s not just about the music. It’s also a time to take a chance and have fun with fashion! From bold trends to outrageous combos, the festival scene is known for some experimental style. Honestly, I’ve gone from attending music festivals to just staying home and pursuing Instagram for fashion highlights.

Take a look at some of the trends your favorite celebrities were rocking at Coachella last weekend!

 

Fanny Packs
Alessandra Ambrosio knows that fanny packs are on-trend, sensible, and will hold the all your necessities.

White Hot
Look chic and stay cool in an all-white ensemble like Olivia Culpo!

 

Micro Sunnies
‘90s-inspired micro sunglasses are going to be everywhere and are this year’s coolest way to finish your festival outfit. Model Amalie Gassmann topped off her shimmery two-piece with a cat-eye pair.

 

Prairie Chic
Boho, redefined. Sweet, floral dresses paired with cowboy boots flooded the Coachella desert last weekend and will surely spread as festival season continues.

 

Combat Boots
You’re dancing your way through the desert all day and night—ditch the no-support, flimsy sandals and don’t even pretend heels are an option. Follow Rebecca Black’s lead and find some good quality combat boots to keep up with you!

 

Matching Sets
Printed matching sets were all over the desert last season, and it’s no wonder why: they’re a chic, easy way to make a statement, as model Sara Sampaio shows!

 

Athleisure
Kendall Jenner wore this sporty outfit to beat the heat. Music festivals are physically exhausting, so make it a bit easier on yourself and go for comfort when planning your outfits!

April 5th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 10 Celebrities’ Instagram Stories You Should Watch

It’s safe to say that Instagram Stories has far surpassed its competitor Snapchat in popularity since it’s inception two years ago—and your favorite celebrities have hopped on the social media trend. Unlike a highly curated photo feed, Instagram Stories is where celebrities seem to be comfortable enough to be raw and open.

Need something to do while you’re waiting in line or on a short break? Take a peek at these celebrities’ Instagram Stories for some surprisingly engaging entertainment.

Busy Philipps, @busyphilipps
A fantastic story teller, Busy was dubbed by The New Yorker as “the breakout star of Instagram Stories”. She captures everything from morning workouts to paparazzi run-ins and everything in between. If it isn’t on Busy’s story, I am assuming it didn’t happen.

 

Mandy Moore, @mandymooremm
Following Mandy Moore for her many This is Us behind-the-scenes stories is worth it alone! She also InstaStoried her home being built and decorated, her Mount Kilimanjaro climb, and the preparation behind all the Hollywood red carpet events she’s recently attended.

 

Chrissy Teigen, @chrissyteigen
Because if you follow and love her on Twitter and Snapchat, why wouldn’t you watch her Instagram Stories for more of her humor, cooking, and adorable daughter Luna?

 

Reese Witherspoon, @reesewitherspoon
Reese may be one of the biggest stars in the world, but she is a down-to-earth breath of fresh air on her Instagram stories!

I’ve had a soft spot for Candace since growing up with her on Full House, and I am living for the resurgence of her career! Follow Candace for Instagram Stories about fashion, family, workouts, and the behind-the-scenes of her on movie and TV sets.

 

Eva Chen, @evachen212
Though she may be biased about using the platform since becoming Director of Fashion Partnerships at Instagram, she’s still one to watch! Eva chronicles her daily life from early mornings with her adorable kids to international fashion week events.

 

Jessica Alba, @jessicaalba
This new mama of three adorably shows how she juggles her home and work life. And now that she is preparing to be back on TV, there’s sure to be some behind-the-scenes sneak peeks!

 

Kristin Cavallari, @kristincavallari
From reality TV to cookbook author and fashion designer, Kristin shares her own recipes and has just opened her first brick-and-mortar
for her fashion and home design line, Uncommon James.

 

Spencer Pratt, @spencerpratt
Hear me out! The Hills alum may have a villainous bad rap from his 15 minutes of fame, but his Instagram stories highlight his
family life with his 6-month-old son Gunner and wife Heidi. His many obsessions include hummingbirds, working out, coffee, and Taylor Swift.
