Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Share Daughter Lilibet’s First Birthday Portrait
On Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor, turned one year old—and the family has released a new portrait to celebrate.
Taken by Misan Harriman, it shows Lilibet smiling on the grounds of the Sussexes’ home, Frogmore Cottage, during her birthday party. She wears a powder blue dress and a bow over her full head of red hair.
Emmy Rossum Respects the Hustle
The actress talks about playing Angelyne, the proto-influencer famous for placing billboards of her own likeness around 1980s L.A.
“The first time I saw one of Angelyne’s billboards was around ’98,” Emmy Rossum explains. “I was like 12 or 13. I remember being absolutely hypnotized.”
A lot of us were. Angelyne rose to fame in the 1980s after large-scale prints of her hot-pink-clad likeness began appearing mysteriously all over Los Angeles. She’s worked as a singer and an actress, but more than anything, she’s a larger-than-life personality, and as someone who was born and raised in the City of Angels, I can attest to the fact that the city has been under her spell for decades. Growing up, I always found it comforting to catch sight of one of her busty billboards or her roaring pink Corvette. She exuded a kind of power that spoke to me. I love an unapologetic Hot Girl.
The Kardashians & the Cross: Jewelry Trend or Sacrilege?
What would the Virgin Queen have thought of the reality TV family’s enthusiastic embrace of the sacred motif?
More importantly, have they transcended their religious connotations so that anyone, Christian or otherwise, can wear them now? (Let us clarify that members of the Kardashian family have alluded to their Christian faith in the past; Barker was raised Catholic.) “I don’t think that’s possible,” says Frank Everett, senior vice president of Sotheby’s Jewelry. “Outside of the high fashion world, the overwhelming majority of cross necklaces are worn by Catholics or Christians.” And that includes several notable—and very expensive—gems that the auction house has sold in recent years, from an extremely rare Byzantine-inspired pearl, turquoise, amethyst, and gold beaut designed by Robert Goossens for Chanel to an antique reliquary-pendant studded with rose-cut diamonds.
The Only Woman at the ICO
ELLE talked to 35 women about what it’s like to work in the scarcely regulated, wild, notoriously bro-y industry.
Of the 35 women working in crypto and NFTs interviewed for this story, most estimate that women make up around 10 to 20 percent of the industry, with some describing the culture that’s sprung up around cryptocurrencies as “alienating” and “intimidating.” One woman says she’s seen résumés get passed over at her company solely because of the applicant’s gender; others mention microaggressions, sexual harassment, and jealous male colleagues, who raise a stink or spread rumors when female peers earn promotions over them. “The moment I became a VP was when a lot of the wolves in sheep’s clothing came out,” says Chjango Unchained (the name she goes by in crypto), a podcaster who’s been in the space since 2014. “I think it’s just the nature of women rising in the hierarchy. The higher in the ranks you go, the more there’s a target on your back.”
Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah Is Changing the Way African Women Talk About Sex
The Ghanaian feminist has dedicated her career to bringing an often-taboo subject into the spotlight
Specifically, Sekyiamah, 44, centers much of her writing and speaking on how women in Africa and across the African diaspora are thinking of, exploring, and enjoying (or not enjoying) sex.
Since 2009, when she cofounded the award-winning blog Adventures from the Bedrooms of African Women with fellow Ghanaian feminist writer Malaka Grant, Sekyiamah has become somewhat of a transnational sex and sexuality documentarian. Last July, she released what could be considered a culmination of this work in the U.K. with her nonfiction debut, The Sex Lives of African Women, which arrived in the U.S. in early March.
This Questionable ’90s Hair Color Is One Of Summer’s Biggest Beauty Trends
Celebrities like Bella Hadid are bringing the money piece highlights back.
As Gen Z continues to discover beauty trends from decades past on TikTok, another vintage hair color is making a comeback.
Money piece hair is an updated version of chunky highlights, a controversial, polarizing hair color trend that was popular in the ’90s. If looking back at Middle school and High school photos has made you swear off this style of highlights for good, celebrities like Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, and Bella Hadid might just convince you to revisit the look.
“I Feel So Lucky That I Am Part of This Community”
Thom Browne on growing up in an ultra-American family and finding authenticity in fashion.
Honestly, as a kid, I never thought about being a fashion designer, or even knew that was something that people did. I grew up in a very classic ultra-American family so the things that I thought about were sports and school, so I didn’t really begin to think about fashion until I was actually out of college.
I remember feeling like I was different than my brothers and sisters, but mostly in that I really liked to do things by myself, and to spend a lot of time on my own. I loved spending time with my mother, she was always so important to me—probably the most important person in my life growing up. I have to say both my mother and father were very stylish. My mother was an attorney, and she dressed very classically. I always loved just how beautifully clean and simple her clothes were, and I think it’s still something that influences parts of what I do in my collections, especially the tailoring.
One of the quickest, easiest ways to cook with ramps is to make this quick pesto that highlights their garlicky onion flavor. You will use only the leaves for this pesto, so it’s a good recipe to keep handy if you are pickling or otherwise just using the bulbs in another recipe. Blanching the greens will keep the color vibrant, but be sure to fully cool them down before making the pesto. Feel free to use walnuts or hazelnuts instead of pine nuts, or to mix in other greens like kale or parsley. Spoon this pesto over roasted or grilled vegetables, meat, or seafood, or toss it with cooked pasta.
Kate Bush Responds to ‘Running Up That Hill’ Boost From Netflix
When the new season of Netflix’s Stranger Things landed on Netflix on May 27, it did so with a big feature of Kate Bush’s 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” in episode four. With its prominent placement in the show, the decades-old song found a new home on the streaming charts, bringing in a ton of new fans who weren’t already familiar with Bush’s music — and the singer herself is very grateful.
“When the first series came out, friends kept asking us if we’d seen Stranger Things, so we checked it out and really loved it,” Bush shared in a new statement today. “We’ve watched every series since then, as a family. When they approached us to use ‘Running Up That Hill,’ you could tell that a lot of care had gone into how it was used in the context of the story and I really liked the fact that the song was a positive totem for the character, Max [Sadie Sink].”
How ‘Moon Knight’ Costume Designer Built Hero Suits Using Jersey Knit and 3D Printing
Meghan Kasperlik, costume designer on Marvel’s newest limited series “Moon Knight,” was tasked for creating the looks for these new additions to Marvel’s vast universe. A key costume was bringing the Moon Knight outfit to life.
Kasperlik’s labor intensive process included working with a metalsmith, 3-D printing and piecing together layers of fabric with different patterns and textures (the Moon Knight costume features 45 different pattern pieces in just one arm), and incorporating hieroglyphic messages throughout the various costume pieces.
Will Generation Covid Grow Up To Be More Resilient Than The Rest Of Us?
In their new book, What I Wish I’d Known When I Was Young, journalists Alice Thomson and Rachel Sylvester speak to politicians, entrepreneurs and creatives, about the childhood traumas and setbacks that have driven them to succeed. Here, they examine the science behind their toughness and ability to adapt to a changing world, and ask what that could mean for the so-called “lost generation”.
“They fuck you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to, but they do.” Philip Larkin’s poem “This Be the Verse” sums up the terror of having children. Parenting is nerve-wracking. When we became pregnant at the same time nearly 20 years ago, we were both elated and anxious. The baby books were full of advice on milestones to be reached, but never mentioned what happened if something went wrong in childhood. Suddenly we felt very responsible. Could they choke on a raisin? Is that rash meningitis? Do you let them walk to school on their own? Even a first scooter ride was fraught with danger. We were often in and out of A&E and even intensive care units with various illnesses. Would they be bullied? Should they be playing football or coding? Were we too laidback or too pushy? And more recently, how would they cope growing up in a pandemic? Would they become part of a lost generation?
Juno Temple, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Jason Leigh Board ‘Fargo’ Season 5 at FX
The anthology series from Noah Hawley will set its newest iteration in 2019.
The fifth season of Fargo has lined up its lead actors.
Ted Lasso favorite Juno Temple, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Jason Leigh will star in the FX anthology. Per usual with the show from creator Noah Hawley, details are scant at the moment. In fact, all FX released Monday were character names: “Dot” for Temple, “Roy” for Hamm and “Lorraine” for Leigh.
FX picked up a fifth season of Fargo in February, more than a year after the Chris Rock-led fourth season concluded. Season five will be set in 2019, in keeping with the show’s pattern of alternating seasons set in the recent past with ones taking place earlier in time (season four was set in the 1950s). The logline for season five reads, “When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?”
How to help teens have a peaceful relationship with food
Body image can be fraught for many. That doesn’t have to affect the kids in your life.
American food culture is difficult for so many people, and for caregivers it can be a downright nightmare. Parents, especially mothers, are tasked with serving kids the “right” foods and cultivating the “right” attitude toward eating. Exactly what the right foods and attitudes are is hazy, as long as your child is thin; if they’re fat, there will be a chorus of people telling you that everything you do is wrong and your child should feel bad about themselves. To add to the pressure, parents are often blamed for their children’s eating disorders.

Building a Juneteenth Menu for the 21st Century, One Recipe at a Time
The cookbook author Nicole Taylor reflects on her journey to create a collection of Juneteenth recipes that revel in the breadth of the African American experience.
African Americans crave locally harvested, coast-to-coast, U.S.D.A. Prime liberty, in all its bitter sweetness.
On June 19, 1865, more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and issued General Order No. 3, informing the people of Texas that all enslaved people were now free. For the more than 250,000 enslaved Black Texans, the impact of the order was not immediate; some plantation owners withheld the information, delaying until after one more harvest season. But a year later, in 1866, unofficial Juneteenth celebrations began in Texas.

The Grand Canyon Is Hosting a Star Party Starting Next Weekend — and It’s Totally Free
The annual party will take place from June 18 to June 25.
The Grand Canyon is hosting a star party this month and includes free entrance to the park and out-of-this-world programming planned throughout several days.
The annual party, which will take place from June 18 to June 25, officially begins at sunset with the best viewing after 9 p.m., according to the National Park Service. Visitors are encouraged to come with a red flashlight, rather than a white one as that can interfere with the viewing.
“Skies will be starry and dark until the moon rises the first night,” the NPS wrote on its website. “It rises progressively later throughout the week of the Star Party.”
