Picture it: You’re out and about in L.A., maybe in West Hollywood or Beverly Hills, when suddenly you spot an outfit that looks plucked straight out of the pages of a fashion magazine. You turn to get a better look, and it’s Jennifer Lopez. What did you expect? You’re in L.A.

Anyway, that’s what happened to some lucky onlookers this past weekend, when J. Lo stepped out for a shopping trip with daughter Emme, and wore a characteristically gorgeous outfit.

Claudia Schiffer reflects on changes in fashion photography

Claudia Schiffer says fashion photography never used to be “made to be consumed instantly via social media”.

The 51-year-old supermodel has lamented on the changes in the industry – such as way digital media has overtaken many print magazines – to celebrate the launch of her photo book ‘Captive! Fashion Photography from the 90s’, which is connected to the exhibition she curated in Dusseldorf Museum Kunstpalast.

17 style suggestions for 60-year-olds who want to look better, not younger in 2022

A classic watch

A great watch is like furniture in that you live with it day-in and day-out, so it’s important to choose something that you
