10 Latina Fashion Editors Share the Brands They’re Excited About Right Now

One of my favorite aspects of being a fashion editor is discovering exciting new brands and designers. Whether it’s small labels in their infancy or more established brands that catch my eye with their unique designs, it’s always a thrill (and an honor!) to share their creativity with a wider audience.

Being half-Paraguayan (I grew up in a household fervently proud of our Latin-American culture, from the Latin music that filled our home to the Yerba Mate we drank daily), so there’s no doubt that I get particularly giddy when I discover talent that speaks to my Latin-American roots and culture. So today, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’m excited to shine a light on a number of brands and designers from the Latin community who are making a mark in the fashion space. And who better to highlight some of the coolest up and coming brands than the

Click here to read the full article.

As the face mask becomes necessary and mandated in many cities across the U.S., influencers and celebrities are finding creative ways to wear the face coverings. Just look at Olivia Palermo. She has proved that she is up for any fashion challenge and has been making style statements with her face masks this entire summer. Brands are getting in on the health trend, too, by creating stylish options in different fabric, prints and designs.

While many people are opting for the traditional cloth or surgical-types masks, Palermo has chosen a silk scarf as her face mask on multiple occasions. For example, the entrepreneur has been spotted wearing Le Scarf’s striped silk-twill scarf in beige and black that retails for $100. Last week, Palermo paired the scarf with a $1,460 Moncler Zinzolin parka coat and Nike Air Max 270 sneakers.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Recap, Season 13 Episode 3

What makes a Drag Race loser? The first three eps of this season have not just shown us dazzling production numbers, avant-garde fashion shows, and experimental psychological torture techniques. They’ve also posed this meta question. RuPaul would have us believe there are no losers. He cites Shangela and Miss Vanjie as evidence that Drag Race placement is not indicative of real-world success. And, yes, there certainly are notable exceptions, but Ru also can’t deny that Drag Race’s elimination structure inherently creates a hierarchy within the show’s alumni, the consequences of which are plain as day. Merchandise sales, booking fees, and social-media engagement make this discrepancy painfully clear. To some degree, it’s unavoidable. Attention isn’t doled out equitably, and not everyone can receive the coveted “lovable underdog” edit. RuPaul isn’t running a charity after all, he’s making a reality-TV show. However, I’m happy to see the show begin to take

7 Major Fashion Moments From Beyonce’s New “Black is King”

The build up to Beyonce’s new “Black is King” visual album has been immense. Now that it’s finally here, fans and critics will no doubt dissect every moment of the 1-hour, 25-minute film, which is inspired by last year’s “Lion King: The Gift” (the star also curated that film’s soundtrack album).

There is plenty to analyze when it comes to the overall message — especially at a time when Black identity is at the forefront of the collective mindset. That can also be said of the film’s fashion. The industry is having its own reckoning with racism, both in the past few months and in past years, from Gucci’s and Prada’s blackface missteps in 2019 to the ongoing lack of diversity in the upper echelons of corporate structures.
