If there's any fashion brand Kim and Kanye love more than Yeezy, it's Balmain. In fact, the whole Kardashian clan supports creative director Olivier Rousteing like no other, thought it's not likely they've ever had to pay for anything from him. Well, it's the thought that counts, right? Last night, following a show practically dipped in gold, they joined the Balmain designer in celebrating his new collection at Loulou in Paris, with Kim showing off a piece she took straight from the runway. When she asks, she really does receive. Kourtney was there too, in apparently just a bra, as well as a slew of #BalmainArmy models including Alessandra Ambrosio, Constance Jablonski, and Natasha Poly. Click through for an inside look!

<![CDATA[The Meadows: Everything You Need To Know About The New Music Festival]]>

Governors Ball's plans always seem to fall under the weather, quite literally (reference to this year's final day cancellation.) Coachella is all the way on the wrong, we mean, West Coast. And Global Citizen Festival is essentially a Willy Wonka factory tour with golden tickets given to only a handful of elite festival-goers who've dutifully completed a brief list of good samaritan tasks. So without further ado, get psyched and ready for 2 solid days of rocking out at Citi Field as The Meadows Music and Arts Festival comes to Queens for the first time.

<![CDATA[Dior's Powerful New Wave Premieres In Paris]]>

The future is female! With fashion's overwhelming support of HRC, it's no surprise that #feminism is in style. (Let's just hope it's not a trend.) In Paris today, Dior's first-ever female creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, debuted a statement-making collection that proves feminist and feminine are hardly mutually exclusive. Among all the ruffles and tulle skirts, models (who themselves happened to be visual artists, medical students, and designers) wore bold T-shirts emblazoned with the terms "We should all be feminists," and "Dio(R)evolution." To drive the point home, Beyoncé echoed through the speakers during the show, and the runway was accompanied by her mix of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “We Should All Be Feminists” speech. 

“I strive to be attentive and open to the world and to create fashion that resembles the women of today,” Chiuri said in the show notes. And those women? The likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Natalie Portman, and Kate Moss, who all had a front row view. 

Welcome to the new wave, a Dior revolution indeed.

<![CDATA[A Charming French Château Just Minutes From Manhattan?]]>

You don't have to throw your phone in the ocean and hop on a plane in order to get some Provençal peace and quiet. Who knew? Well apparently Diane Sawyer, since she once owned this idyllic stone hideaway with her late husband, Mike Nichols in Orangetown, New York. The 3,108-square-foot property has changed hands a few times since being built by notable art colony founders, the Tonetti family in the 1920s, and it's on the market one more. For just $4.6 million, this rustic cliffside home could be yours, complete with guest cottage and a stunning view of the Hudson River. The best (and perhaps most unbelievable) part? It's only a 25-minute drive from Midtown Manhattan. And you thought moving to the suburbs was for losers. Click through for a tour of this surprising French charmer.

<![CDATA[Artichoke Pizza Is Coming To Bay Ridge]]>

The hipster takeover is imminent. Bay Ridge, the last neighborhood in Brooklyn to be untouched by the YUCCIE hands of urban settlers is getting its own landmark of drunk post-grads who do nothing but raise the rent: Artichoke Pizza.

Sure, we all love the heavy slices of morning regret after a late night out in the city, but there's no Avenue in Bay Ridge, there's no 1OAK. There are no NYU kids crawling along MacDougal Street after overpaying for their first bad comedy show. Why here? Why now? 

According to the Brooklyn Reporter, we can expect the new space, on 91st and and 4th, to open "soon." We mean, the sign is already up and everything. Time to stock up on stretch pants or time to move? We'll leave that decision up to you.

<![CDATA[Self-Defense Classes For Badass Babes Like Gigi Hadid]]>

Talk about a supermodel. By now we've all seen the video of Gigi Hadid defending herself when a self-proclaimed "prankster" physically assaulted her outside a show in Milan. Elbow to the face, asshole! But even without the threat of a headline-making stunt, the streets of New York can feel pretty intimidating, especially if you're a woman. It's always better to be safe than sorry, so why not have a couple fighting moves in your back pocket, too? Here are some of the coolest martial arts and self-defense classes in the city to help you feel safe, fit and ready to fight like a badass warrior.

<![CDATA[What Your Coffee Pairing Says About You]]>

Nectar of the Gods, black gold, cupped lightning, good ol' Joe. Whatever you call it, coffee is the essential life force of the modern world. It's a hot (or iced) mug of energy, of conversation, of social functioning. Without it we would all be half-asleep zombies wandering mindlessly through the streets. And while, at its core, coffee is all created equal, the way you pair it makes it oh-so-unique, and usually reveals a lot about the drinker.
