Solo Stove Sale: This Smokeless Fire Pit Will Supercharge Your Outdoor Hangs (Plus 9 More Big Gear Deals)

After months of ceaselessly cold winter temperatures, (some) warmer days have arrived. It's weather that makes even the most stalwart home bodies peek their heads out their window and consider going to the park. But the sunny days still seem to glide into chilly nights. The solution? A fire pit. Fire pit sales skyrocketed since the start of the pandemic as people look to safely socialize outdoors without freezing. Turns out, they're great for beyond winter, too. In the transitional season, fire pits are indispensable for outdoor hangs over good drinks and good company. A good one lets you adjust the flame easily, but a great one will do it without spewing papal-announcement-size plumes of smoke.Solo Stove has been making fire pits that check both boxes since 2011. Its fire pits have a clea...

If You're Tired of Filling in Your Brows (or Really Bad at It), Read This

I remember when I first discovered that filling in your brows was a thing, and embarrassingly, it was fairly recent. I've always taken a pretty lackadaisical approach to makeup, so it's not surprising I was a bit of a late bloomer in the brow department. Growing up, I was never really into makeup and tended to go the more natural route. But of course, the more I was exposed to it via friends, the internet, what have you, the more I dabbled. And when I did actually start wearing makeup (starting in middle school), let's just say everything was very… experimental. Eventually, I discovered I could fill in my brows. To paint the picture for you, this was also during a time when I was recovering from a base-bump gone wrong, so my hair was a fun shade of yellowish-orange. (I kid.) The art of fil...

John Mayer Keeps Adding Legendary Watches to His Collection

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and John Mayer is in on the festivities. For the occasion, AP released a whole collection of new takes on its immortal Royal Oak design, adding all sorts of fun bells and whistles befitting a birthday party of this magnitude.Much of the Royal Oak’s success can be attributed to the way it nails the details: the perfectly weighted “bathtub” hour markers, the handsome dial designs, the nearly-as-beloved-as-the-watch-itself bracelet. For its 50th anniversary, though, AP put aside the details and went big, releasing statement-making versions of its Royal Oak with tourbillons, special-edition faces, and...

And best of all...

Sebastian Stan Missed the Met Gala 2022 Theme But Who Cares?

An invite to the Met Gala comes with great responsibility. There’s a theme to dress for—this year's theme is “Gilded Glamour”—and attendees must come up with an outfit for that theme that’s great and outrageous…but not so outrageous it gets them roasted online. But sometimes an outfit is so perfect, we can forgive it for missing a theme’s bullseye. That’s where Sebastian Stan landed with his Pepto-Bismol-on-steroids Valentino look. It may not be a perfect fit among the many more literal interpretations of this year’s theme, but who cares? Sebastian Stan looks really good in pink.Jeff KravitzThe actor arrived at the Met Gala red carpet in a pink coat, pink shirt, pink trousers, pink sunglasses, pink sneakers, and even pink socks. This is monochromatic dressing turned up to 11. (We would hav...

Henry Golding Conquers the Met Gala 2022 with a Tom Ford Tuxedo

“This is my usual, my classic,” Golding says, hitting the pose in the fitting room. Golding has leading-man looks and one of those rare smiles that makes everyone around him goofily grin back. Like the rest of us, though, he worries about how to carry himself in front of cameras. This stance, he says, just made sense. “It’s just natural, ’cause you’re always like, what do you do with your hands?” he explains.But the Met Gala red carpet is famously long and intense. All 154 feet of the walk up the Met steps are crammed with photographers, and with this year’s ultra-formal “Gilded Glamour” theme and white-tie dress code, Golding knows he has to cut a particularly debonair figure. As his wife, Liv Lo Golding, and their bubbly 13-month old daughter Layla look on, Golding slips into a pair of j...

Travis Barker’s Met Gala 2022 Outfit Was Polished Punk

And since their romance has coincided with the post-pandemic return of red carpets, that has meant a lot more dressing up than usual.Growing up obsessed with drumming and skateboarding, Barker didn’t spend much time thinking about polished formalwear. “I think I prided myself in not dressing up well,” he says, “just being a punk kid.” Thinking back on when he first wore a suit, he recalls, “I think it might have been in catechism, like in church or something.” He skipped his prom to go skateboarding, so that was off the tux milestone list, too. Suit wearing, he said, was restricted mostly to “like, funerals or court. So this is so much better.”So when did dressing up become fun? “Just recently, to be honest,” he admits, his smile revealing canines full of tooth gems. After spending a decad...

No, That’s Not Jared Leto at the Met Gala

Year after year, Jared Leto makes an absolute meal of the Met Gala. Nobody wear attention-getting gear quite as reliably as he does: In 2019, you’ll recall, he literally carried his own head to the annual event. This year, for the Gilded Glamour-themed Met Gala, expectations were set sky high. Maybe that’s why when a man showed up on the carpet dressed like a king from a planet far, far away, with waves of spikes sprouting from his outfit, people just went ahead and assumed Leto was up to his old tricks again. That rascal! Only: that’s not Jared Leto.Maybe it’s a compliment to Leto that people see an outfit that’s a 10-out-of-10 on the insanity scale and don’t even bother to double-check if it’s actually him. As soon as this man hit the red carpet, multiple publications started spreading t...

Riz Ahmed’s Met Gala 2022 Outfit Is a Love Letter to Immigrant Workers

Plenty of the men in attendance at tonight’s Met Gala red carpet delivered on the theme (“Gilded Glamour”) and the dress code (white tie), wearing coattails and top hats that embodied the expressive elegance of New York high society at the turn of the century. One notable exception? Riz Ahmed, who hit the red carpet in double-knee pants, an overshirt, and a tank top. Where many guests complimented their looks with Gilded Age accessories such as top hats, canes, and white bow ties, Ahmed wore a Cartier necklace reminiscent of Indian Hyderabadi jewelry. The most striking finishing touch, though, was the white shoelace—cribbed from a pair of Vans—Ahmed wore as a belt.The look, conceived by NYC-based label 4SDESIGNS and the stylist Julie Ragolia, might have seemed off-theme at first glance.

Our Mothers Deserve Nothing Less Than These Luxe Cartier Gifts

Mothers, whether biological mothers, grandmothers, sisters, or friends (anyone who takes on the role, really), are the strongest people on the planet. You can't tell me otherwise. When Mother's Day comes around, I always wish I could give my mom the world, and while I can't literally do that, I can get her gifts that she'll cherish forever. That's why this year, I'm looking at Cartier for something a little extra that I know will bring her so much joy. The beloved designer has timeless watches, ultra-luxe diamonds, classic sunglasses, and more. (You can't go wrong with anything.) My co-workers are on the same page, and they're looking to get their mothers something they'll never expect.
