10 Classic Films to Inspire Your Summer Wardrobe

Katherine Hepburne

Yes! A real reason to spend the afternoon cooling down with Netflix. For this week’s Most Wanted, the Vogue editors took a break from the catwalk and turned to the silver screen for their summer wardrobe inspiration.  What’s great about the feature are the direct links to the online shopping sites where you can find the matching looks! And there are some real gems in that top 10—Faye Dunaway in The Thomas Crown Affair, Jean Seberg in Bonjour Tristesse, and Katharine Hepburn in Bringing Up Baby and The Philadelphia Story.

Going Gray: Why I Finally Stopped Coloring My Hair

No fifty shades of gray for this gal. tells us:

Two years ago, I stopped coloring my hair and realized I had unintentionally done something radical. People assumed my long, gray hair was a statement against our culture’s celebration of youth and our rigid conventions of beauty. Or, conversely, they assumed my hair revealed an inherent laziness on my part.

Not so fast. Turns out McGaha has been dyeing her gray hairs since her 20s. But then she stopped as she remembered her mother’s grace and beauty in wearing her natural gray.

For many women heading down the aisle for the second, third (we could go on) time, a wedding veil is usually not on the priority list. We loved this assembly from Elle of sophisticated, mature, romantic, and gorgeous alternatives to the wedding veil. It includes embellished headbands, woven strands of jewels, and white pearl hairpins.

Beverly Johnson Talks Diversity in Fashion Today

bj-vogue1

Forty years ago this August, model Beverly Johnson made history as she debuted as the first-ever African-American to grace the cover of Vogue magazine. She recounts what that moment meant for her in this feature for Women’s Wear Daily and also talks about the lack of diversity in the fashion world, where, she thinks, “there aren’t as many African-American models, hair stylists and makeup artists working to the degree they once were and there is a lack of women of color on certain runways during fashion week.”
