SO EXCITED! LIVE-STREAMING MY PANTS!

The Webby Awards is very excited honor Ellie Kemper with 2015’s Best Actress award for her hilarious and masterful performance as the title character in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Despite all of the hardships she has faced, Kemper’s Kimmy inhabits a colorful, joyful world. She is unabashedly optimistic without being cloying—a massive comedic feat. Her quirk is undercut by a tenacity to turn her life around and a toughness of character that makes it believable that she will succeed. Simply, it’s Kemper’s nuanced portrayal that makes the series binge-worthy, and that is why we are thrilled to present her with this year’s Webby Award for Best Actress.

Mariah Carey is on the cover of Complex
Ahead of the debut of her upcoming E! show, “Mariah’s World,” the pop icon sat down with Complex to discuss her life in the spotlight, her new relationship and how the music industry has changed since she started out. “A lot of rappers don’t have to go through what I had to go through as a singer,” says Carey in the interview. “I was always in a bubble that they put me in, but I was always punching out. It was a tough line to walk.” {Complex}

7 Fashion Tips You Can Only Learn From Street Style

Let us fill you in on a little secret: As much as we love celebrity style, when we’re looking for outside-the box tips and tricks to step up our game every now and then, there’s no better place to look to for inspiration than the streets. That’s because unlike celebs, street style stars have the freedom to try things that wouldn’t necessarily translate on the very public and highly scrutinized red carpet. Whether it’s a new way to wear your typically at-home PJ’s, a standoutsneaker styling trick, or a T-shirt–and-dress combo that will help you get the most use out of your fun party pieces, street style is chock-full of creative ideas. So today, we’ve rounded up seven of our favorite for you to try too—along with the tips to learn from them.

A ‘Game of Thrones’ Spin-Off COULD Happen

Yes, ‘Game of Thrones’ is ending after Season 8, but we might see more of Westeros in a spin-off.

Winter is here for Game of Thrones fans. Sure, winter finally arrived in Westeros after so many promises (you didn’t lie to us, Ned Stark), but it even feels like winter, in our GoT-loving souls. Season 7 is going to be short(only seven episodes), delayed (it’s not starting until summer, instead of its usual April premiere date), and, thanks to the season’s timing, not eligible for Emmys in 2017. On top of all of that, HBO confirmed Saturday during the network’s summer press tour that the hit show will indeed end after Season 8.

What actually is a babydoll dress?

Te catwalks have decreed that the babydoll dress is one of the key dress styles of the season. Valentino, Jeremy Scott and Giambattista Valli all offered different incarnations on the catwalk, but, judging by the responses in the GLAMOUR office, there is still confusion about what it actually is.

Indigital

The babydoll started out as a short nightgown invented by a designer called Sylvia Pedler in 1942 as a means of working with the fabric shortage during World War II. A version for children was also created – the length was kept short so that kids could have their nappies changed with ease, so bear that in mind when you’re wearing yours. Pedler apparently hated that women began calling them babydolls and never used the term herself.

Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2016

The anticipation was palpable at this season’s couture show for Dior, due in large part to Raf Simons’ abrupt resignation as creative director. With uncertainty looming in the air, there were obvious questions surrounding who would be at the helm of the house’s atelier and what direction the aesthetic would lean toward now.

Those that bore witness to Simons’ inaugural collection for Dior during 2012’s spring couture season (or tuned in to the documentary Dior & I, which chronicled the events leading up to the afore-mentioned) can agree that all the painstaking attention he paid to every stitch and every nuance translated from his imagination and inspiration to the runway exceeded his expectations and those of onlookers...
