Anna Diop Delivers a Hauntingly Good Performance in Nanny

The universe has a funny way of bringing things full circle. For actress Anna Diop, finding her way to the film Nanny was one of those moments. It started a couple of years back when a writer on the show Titans emailed her about an exciting new filmmaker named Nikyatu Jusu. He thought she could be the next Barry Jenkins and encouraged Diop to check out her work. She watched Jusu’s short film Suicide by Sunlight and was blown away. “I was so taken by the originality of the story—the way that it was told through this dark genre, the social issues she was contending with in the story, the characters. Just across the board, I was really impressed with this filmmaker,” she says from a hotel room in New York City. Diop sent Jusu’s stuff to her reps hoping to connect, but nothing came of it. Two ...

Addison Rae's Effortlessly Undone Hair Is a Work of Art—This $28 Product Was Key

There's no doubt that Addison Rae is a beauty influencer in the truest sense. To start, she has her own brand, Item Beauty, and a casual 88.7 million followers on TikTok to share makeup inspo with. Lately, though, she's been stepping into the specific role of hair influencer (to us, at least). Not only was she a driving force behind one of 2022's biggest hair trends—the '90s "fluffy hair" blowout, but her recent red carpet hairstyles have also been equally noteworthy.  Her most recent hairstyle came courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett (whose clients also include the likes of Margot Robbie, Kaia Gerber, and Hailey Bieber). He styled her long, chocolate-brown hair in undone waves and perfected them with a heavy dose of shine. The look itself was inspired by her dress, which was ...

The From Scratch Costumes Are Every Bit as Romantic as the Story Itself

For co-writers and sisters Tembi and Attica Locke, the Netflix series From Scratch is a deeply personal one. Based on Tembi’s best-selling memoir, From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home, the eight-part romantic drama follows a cross-cultural love story set against the idyllic Sicilian countryside. Offering a glimpse of Tembi’s whirlwind life, the show stars Zoe Saldaña as Amy Wheeler, a law student who travels to Italy for a six-week art program and meets and falls for Sicilian chef Lino Ortolano (Eugenio Mastrandrea). The two embark on a sweeping journey filled with love, great food, and unforeseen challenges that bring their families together in a way they could have never imagined. Be prepared—it's a tearjerker. Having Tembi and Attica so heavily involved in the projec...

How to Achieve Anne Hathaway’s Perfectly Undone Waves

Photo: Getty Images Anne Hathaway has been a bonafide beauty icon ever since her Princess of Genovia days. Recently, though, she's been leaning into a cool '60s aesthetic that's turning even more heads than usual. From shift dresses to bouffants and beyond, she's making the mod look relevant again (but, then again, when wasn't it?). She debuted her most recent '60s-inspired look on the Elle's Wo...

Attention to Detail Is the Secret to Success in Netflix's Do Revenge

We asked Do Revenge costume designer Alana Morshead what her favorite teen movie was growing up, and the answer was no surprise: Clueless, followed closely by Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. These visually iconic ’90s films (notably styled by costume designer Mona May) not only established the tone for teen movies of the era but also marked a new age in fashion on-screen with vibrant wardrobes, archetypal accessories, and an inherent DIY-ness just as critical to the story as the plot. Streaming now on Netflix, Do Revenge is an homage to classic ’90s and ’00s teen movies as well as an astute social commentary on the youth culture of today. While it combines elements of Mean Girls, Jawbreaker, and even a dash of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Do Revenge is referential but i...

Rihanna's Cult-Favorite Perfume Is Finally Back in Stock—for Good This Time

In 1789, Benjamin Franklin said that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. Well, I’d like to add a third, less morbid truth to the list: the fact that Rihanna smells good. Not only does she just give off a certain aura, but a slew of other celebs, such as Lil Nas X and Cardi B, have waxed poetic about how good Rihanna smells. Rihanna allegedly smells so good that her first luxury fragrance, Fenty Eau de Parfum, is one of the only celebrity perfumes that we keep on rotation. The problem is it’s nearly always sold out since it was initially launched as a limited-edition fragrance and typically sells out within hours of each restock. Now, however, the brand has decided to make Fenty Eau de Parfum a mainstay in the Fenty Beauty family, which means that you now always have acces...
