Alexa Chung at The Legend Of Tarzan premiere July 2016

It seems like a long time coming, but style icon Alexa Chung has today announced that she’s launching her own fashion label.

Eponymously named ‘Alexachung’, it will debut in May 2017 and will include denim, daywear, evening wear, shoes, and jewelry, as well as special products.

If Kylie Lip Kits had levels, Candy K (a matte latte color) would be beginner, Mary Jo K (candy apple red) would be intermediate, and Skylie, a new limited edition shade, would be advanced. An opaque Carolina blue, Skylie is the most attention-seeking Lip Kit yet—perfect for Snapchat, where it belongs—no matter how you wear it.

Skylie sold out last Friday, but we got our hands on a sample of the $29 kit. Here, ELLE.com editors take the Skylie Lip Kit challenge to see how Kylie’s most extreme shade works IRL.

THE NON-FASHION DUDES IN OUR LIVES REVIEW THE NYFW:M SHOWS, DAY 1

In the past, we at Fashionista have sent an eager, curious non-fashion dude to report from the front lines at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, a women’s ready-to-wear show, and, finally, the #menswear extravaganza that is New York Fashion Week: Men’s. This time around, we thought it would be entertaining to ask the non-fashion dudes in our lives — husbands, boyfriends, dads, platonic pals — whose occupations range from law to tech to television writing what their immediate feelings were about the looks presented on the NYFW:M runways. 

Without further ado, we present their snap reviews from the first day of the men’s shows, which they kindly submitted via text message. Enjoy!

Even though rumors had been circulating for awhile now, waking up to the news that Hedi Slimane was officially leaving Saint Laurent came as no less of a shock (and on April Fool’s Day, too). As the creative and image director, Slimane wasted no time in making monumental changes during his tenure, like stripping away the Yves, reinstating couture, relocating the atelier, and renovating a 17th-century mansion l’Hôtel de Sénecterre.
