  • A Visual Guide to Dressing For Every Type of Wedding
    by Shelcy Joseph on May 20, 2022

    "What to wear to a wedding?" is likely a question you'll soon be contemplating (if you aren't already). After a two-year hiatus, in-person celebrations are back, and the extravagant bridal-dress trends are proof the sartorial bar has been raised for both brides and wedding guests. Still, the anticipation doesn't make it easier to decide what to wear, especially if the wedding card comes with a specific dress code. Semiformal, black-tie, festive, or tropical? What exactly do these wedding dress codes mean? There is a range of dressing styles you can embrace to make an appropriate and memorable entrance. While black tie is the most common wedding attire, ambiguous terms like "semiformal" or "dressy casual" occasionally get thrown in the mix, adding to the confusion about what really makes an acceptable wedding style choice. It's also normal to wonder whether or not you can wear white to a wedding. To that question, the short answer is no, out of respect for the bride. That said, there are multiple ways to incorporate white into your look without competing with the bride. The best way to nail a wedding dress code is to ask the bride as soon as you receive the invite. You can even share some options as you narrow down your choices. If that's not an option - say you're someone's plus-one without direct access, you can also research the wedding venue to get a feel for the wedding style and acceptable dress code. Is the ceremony happening beachside? Then perhaps a chic satin midi dress or crochet silhouette will perfectly match the background. If it's taking place at a garden, then a chic cocktail dress will likely do the trick. These subtle clues can help you make an appropriate choice. What If There Is No Wedding Dress Code? In some rare instances, no dress code is indicated on the wedding invitation. In that case, rely on context clues to choose your outfit, whether it's the location, the time of the ceremony, or the invitation design. When in doubt, a mid-length dress or classic suit is a foolproof choice for any occasion. What Should I Not Wear to a Wedding as a Guest? Wearing white to a wedding is rarely acceptable, if ever - unless the couple explicitly writes "white attire" in the wedding invite. In addition, avoid overly revealing or flamboyant clothing that could steal the spotlight from the bride. Jeans and sneakers are almost always too casual for the occasion, even if the dress code says "dressy casual" or even has "casual" in it. Ahead, read about the different types of wedding attire (i.e. formal, black tie, cocktail, tropical, and festive). Prepare to be the best-dressed guest at the wedding with our guide to the most common wedding dress codes. Related: 12 Ways to Wear White to a Wedding Without Offending the Bride

  • Anne Hathaway Wears a Mod Leather Minidress and Platforms at Cannes
    by Nikita Charuza on May 20, 2022

    Anne Hathaway had yet another attention-grabbing moment at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday, May 20 - this time in Gucci. The actress attended the "Armageddon Time" photo call wearing a retro blue-and-black minidress from the luxury Italian fashion house. The Gucci design came complete with a bright-blue leather cone bra connected to a black sequined skirt and finished with crisscross straps tied into a bow at the back. She finished her look with a pair of teal-and-bone cat-eye sunglasses, which she ended up removing to pose for photos. The "WeCrashed" star, whose stylist is Erin Walsh, accessorized the mod-inspired outfit with a pair of six-inch silver heels that also featured tiny bow adornments on the front. As the new face of Bulgari, Hathaway showed off a diamond wrap watch and a pair of matching diamond earrings from the jeweler. When styled with bangs, the ensemble is reminiscent of the leather outfit Hathaway wore as Andy Sachs, her iconic character from 2006 comedy "The Devil Wears Prada," while going on a date in Paris. On Thursday, May 19, the actress wore a custom Armani Privé gown embellished with white sequins on the red carpet, where she was accompanied by her husband, Adam Shulman. This regal appearance was capped off with silver slingback heels and more Bulgari jewels, including a Mediterranean Reverie necklace that featured a 100,000-carat sapphire comparable to the one Kate Winslet wears as Rose in 1997's "Titanic," aka the Heart of the Ocean.

  • A Celebration of Rihanna's Game-Changing Maternity Style
    by Victoria Messina on May 20, 2022

    Crop tops, sheer dresses, cutout jumpsuits - no article of clothing was off limits for Rihanna during her pregnancy. Before welcoming her first child on May 13, the singer consistently eschewed conventional maternity clothes in favor of bolder choices, starting with the vintage pink Chanel puffer coat she wore unbuttoned with low-rise jeans to announce her pregnancy in January. She followed that up with a series of boundary-pushing outfits during Paris Fashion Week, date nights with A$AP Rocky in Los Angeles, beach days in Barbados, and launch parties for her Fenty Beauty brand. Each look delivered a sultry and unexpected element, whether it was sheer material, sky-high stilettos, or a low-rise miniskirt. "I'm enjoying not having to worry about covering up my tummy." Rihanna set out to avoid flats and stretchy pants while pregnant to demonstrate that expecting parents shouldn't have to sacrifice their style. "It's been me personally saying, 'I'm not going to buy maternity clothes. I'm not gonna buy maternity pants, jeans, dresses, or [do] whatever society told me to do before,'" the 34-year-old makeup mogul told Bustle about her maternity style. "When I saw women dress during their pregnancy [in the past], I'd think that that was the only way. So, I challenged myself to push it further and really just have fun with [maternity style]. Because there's nothing more fun than a challenge for me. That's where I get creative. That's where I'm forced to come up with new ideas and new ways to make it work." Rihanna's favorite part of getting dressed while pregnant? "I'm enjoying not having to worry about covering up my tummy," she told People at a Fenty Beauty event in February. "If I feel a little chubby, it's like, whatever! It's a baby!" To celebrate Rihanna welcoming her baby boy into the world, we're looking back on her best maternity style moments, featuring pieces by Attico, Gucci, Off-White, and more.

  • Harry Styles Celebrates His New Album in a Custom Duck-Stitched Cardigan
    by Nikita Charuza on May 20, 2022

    If there's anyone who can get away with a '70s-inspired outfit complete with a duck-stitched cardigan, it's Harry Styles. After three long years, Styles released his third album, "Harry's House," and he surprised a group of more than 100 fans at a Spotify party ahead of the release on Thursday, May 19. For the event, Styles walked on set at an album-themed location in a custom cardigan by S.S. Daley in collaboration with knitwear designer Ruth Herring that featured two yellow ducks on each side. The brown sweater, which was a special order from the brand's fall/winter '22 collection, was complete with black buttons and a yellow checkerboard print down the sleeves. Styles, who works with stylist Harry Lambert, paired the sweater with a simple white T-shirt tucked into a pair of wide-leg jeans, adding a retro flair to the ensemble. As for accessories, the English-born musician never shies away from wearing an array of bold necklaces, earrings, and rings. This time, Styles selected a chunky, light-blue beaded necklace by made-to-order Miami-based brand Éliou and finished the outfit with classic white sneakers. The singer's aesthetic matched the atmosphere, complete with a mirrored wall and vintage furniture. Of course, this isn't the first time Styles has been seen channeling the '70s. Recently, he performed at Coachella wearing a rainbow sequined Gucci jumpsuit. His girlfriend, Olivia Wilde, is also a fan of nostalgic looks reminiscent of the same decade, as she was seen at CinemaCon in Las Vegas wearing a blue velvet power suit by Alberta Ferretti teamed with Styles's favorite necklace, a gold cross pendant on a simple chain. Ahead, take a look at Styles's album-debut outfit from all angles and shop his exact necklace. Related: Here's What One Direction Members Have Said About Harry Styles Since They Split

  • These $17 Walmart Sandals Are a Dupe For a Much More Expensive Version
    by Marisa Petrarca on May 20, 2022

    Without mentioning a particular shoe brand, I think it's safe to say we're all familiar with a certain sandal *hint hint* featuring a contoured cork footbed. In all honesty, I was never big into the trend until recently, when I spotted a similar style for under-$20 at Walmart. Enter, the double-buckle Time and Tru Platform Footbed Sandals ($17), with almost exclusively five-star reviews. Curious to see if I'd be into them, I thought, "what the heck," and added the tan colorblock design to my virtual shopping cart. My honest thoughts, ahead. What I Like About These Sandals I'm surprised by how much I like these casual sandals. When I added them to my cart, a part of me wondered if its overwhelmingly positive ratings were too good to be true, but - spoiler alert - they're not. I put them on just minutes after they arrived at my doorstep and proceeded to wear them all day while working from home to get the full experience. I was taken aback by how quickly the memory-foam footbed adjusted to the shape of my foot, so that when I slid it off and slid it back on, it was perfectly molded to my foot and thus, super comfortable. What Occasion Are These Sandals Good For? These comfortable sandals are the definition of versatile. I can see myself slipping them on to take my dog for a walk just as frequently as I will to wear 'em for a day on the town with friends with denim shorts and a cropped T-shirt. What's Worth Noting About These Sandals Before you add this set to your cart, there are a few important factors to note. First: The reviewers are right that these sandals run a bit big. Depending on the brand, I'm usually a size 9.5 or 10, but I heeded shopper recommendations and ordered a size 9 - they fit perfectly. Another thing that may or may not be a deal-breaker for you is that they're heavy, which was why a small percentage of shoppers decided to return them. This didn't bother me since I still think they're super comfortable, but I understand why it could be a deal-breaker. And finally, the color of these sandals look different IRL than they do in the photo. On the website, the sandal is a mix of light brown, cream and dark brown, but in reality, the dark brown is olive green. Would I Recommend These Sandals? Yes! Assuming you've noted that they run big, are on the heavy side, and aren't exactly the color they look online, they're certainly a great dupe for more expensive versions. I can't give them fine stars because it's evident they're not perfect, but I know I'm about to wear these on repeat this summer - so four stars it is. Rating:

Ciara, who wore a leopard-print swimsuit from LaQuan Smith and a cowboy hat on the magazine cover, chose to tap the designer once again for her party look. Decorated with cutouts along the chest, stomach, and hips, her turtleneck bodysuit included a built-in underwire bra and high leg cut, pairing seamlessly with the ruched skirt that hit her at midthigh.

  • Dior Invites '90s Pop Stars to a Nostalgic-Themed Show at Venice Beach
    by Sarah Wasilak on May 20, 2022

    Dior men's artistic director Kim Jones invited celebrity guests to attend his spring/summer 2023 Venice Beach show in Los Angeles, marking the beginning of a new capsule-collection approach for the brand, which will recruit guest designers to merge their own creative DNA with the iconic French fashion house. Working with LA-based creative director Eli Russell Linnetz ⁠- who directed the music video for Kanye West's "Fade," designed costumes for Lady Gaga, and made the multicolor quilted robe that A$AP Rocky wore to the 2021 Met Gala ⁠- Jones delivered a '90s-inspired lineup that channeled the skater-meets-boy-band aesthetic. Among those in attendance were Christina Aguilera, an undisputed '90s and '00s fashion icon in her own right, who styled khaki separates over an olive bodysuit with a keyhole cutout across the bust, finishing with white pointed-toe shoes, a Dior box clutch, and oversize shield sunglasses. Meanwhile, newlyweds Nicola and Brooklyn Peltz Beckham coordinated in off-the-runway pieces: he wore a glittery wave-effect hoodie, black silk logo-imprinted slacks, and sneakers, while she opted for a summery sea-foam pantsuit and a nylon sport Dior bag. Other notable attendees included "Schitt's Creek" star Dan Levy, Jaden Smith, Kid Cudi, Jordyn Woods, and Winnie Harlow, who all put their own personal spins on the nostalgic aesthetic reflected on the runway. The opening look - a slouchy, oversize gray suit - set the tone for the relaxed suiting trend that was woven throughout the collection. When paired with suede and quilted high-top sneakers, these looks are sure to become a hit with the younger crowd, who Jones and Linnetz aim to target. "Kids are really into it now, it's crazy," Jones told Business of Fashion. Other standout items from the new Dior men's collection included the brand's signature saddle bag in a shrunken shape in bright hues like hot pink and ombré metallic turquoise. These were affixed to a chunky chainlink strap made to be worn crossbody or as a waist pouch. There were also swirling pastel puffer coats, "California Couture" embroidered turtlenecks, and fluffy bucket hats that reflect the careful consideration to texture within the collection overall. Together, Jones and Linnetz reinvigorated an old Dior logo with the addition of a bold flower and the "ERL" emblem on the side. You can spot it on everything, from the skate shoes and blazer pockets to the neon sign that was the backdrop for attendees to pose in front of before taking their seats for the show. Ahead, soak in all the vibes from Venice Beach. Related: Gucci Stages Its Resort Show Runway at a Castle
