<![CDATA[Inside Iconic Restaurateur Keith McNally's $14 Million NYC Townhouse]]>

Balthazar, The Odeon, Morandi, Minetta Tavern, Pastis, Cherche Midi, Cafe Luxembourg, Lucky Strike. Add in the most recently opened Augustine at The Beekman, and you've still not even begun to scratch the dossier of ever iconic restaurateur, Keith McNally.

Beloved for his unique, almost magical ability to get away with situating rustic, old world loving designs within the setting of an ever modern moving New York, all without losing any sense of authenticity, his five-bedroom, 5.5-bath home in Greenwich Village does not fall short of expectations. Having been on the market as a rental for some time, it seems Keith's finally ready to part with his modern-provencal home on West 11th. 

Though why anyone would leave such a dream is truly beyond us. We mean, the walk-in wine cellar alone!

<![CDATA[11 Women (& Men) Across The Country On Why They Marched]]>

It's truly a sign of these incendiary times that a peaceful march and global movement in support of women, love, and equality, could be met with such strong and biting backlash. From New York to DC to hell, even Antartica, passionate people came together to, quite literally, take a stand against Donald Trump and his hateful rhetoric. The response of those who didn't get it? "I bet half those women don't even know why they're marching." Besides that being a deeply misogynist remark in itself (undermining the actions of femmes yet again!), it's also an absolutely untrue one. Here, 11 women (and men) share the very realized reasons why they participated in marches across the country this past Saturday.

<![CDATA[The It Girl Princess You Haven't Heard Of...Yet]]>

When your last name is basically "of Greece and Denmark," one can imagine you're doing pretty well for yourself socially. And so it is, as evidenced by the fabulously photogenic life of Princess Maria-Olympia, daughter of the ever-chic Marie-Chantal. From jet-setting the globe, gracing fashion's best parties with her presence, to stomping around New York with pals in between class at NYU, the 20 year old royal is every bit as annoyingly cool as you'd imagine.

<![CDATA[7 Things That Really Could Have Been In That Tiffany's Box]]>

Now that the fanfare of the inauguration is sizzling down to a loud yell, a much more live-able volume compared to the front row, AC/DC concert level of noise we've been dealing with these past days, it seems many questions are still unanswered. How many people in fact attended Trump's swearing in? How many attended the women's march? Is Kellyanne Conway an inside joke of a human being? Why is HBO's The Young Pope so bad? 

Again, it's been a long week. The one question we can't seem to get off our minds however is just what special little gift was inside that thin, long Tiffany blue box Melania handed to Michelle. Without even touching on the beyond hilarious possibility that the gift itself wasn't even from Tiffany's, but they just used a spare box - here are some of our top picks from the silver-loving store.

<![CDATA[Dior's Magical SS17 Show Has Us Green With Envy]]>

Alex de Betak, the extraordinary mind behind some of the most jaw-dropping fashion shows around the globe - must we remind you of the Dior Lavender Mountain! - and husband to our personal friend and everyone's favorite It Girl, Sofia Sanchez de Betak, has outdone himself it seems with his latest show for Dior SS17.

Let's just say, lush doesn't even begin to cover it. Pulling out all the decorative stops for Maria Grazia Chiuri's debut haute couture collection - we mean, with a setting like this, it will take some serious willpower to pay attention to the clothes at all!

<![CDATA[Why Princess Leia Is Still The Face Of The Resistance]]>

As millions around the world marched on Saturday, memorable signs galore, one face stood out as an icon of the rebel force: Princess Leia. The trend was as timely as it was bittersweet, the world having lost Carrie Fisher less than a month ago. The Star Wars actress was indeed so much more than that, a true bad-ass babe in real life, too. But the imagery of Leia Organa, the literal face of the resistance in a galaxy far, far away was so meaningful in the context of these marches, not just because she was a woman who led the fight, but because she was a woman who won it.

<![CDATA[The BEST Signs From The Women's March In NYC]]>

While the main event in Washington boasted a record-breaking display of solidarity, over 670 sister rallies in every state and around the world helped make the Women's March the largest U.S.-centric protest in history. In New York City, women joined together with people of all genders, religions, and political associations to make their way to Trump Tower, their voices loud and clear. More than 400,000 are estimated to have taken to the streets in Midtown Manhattan, and with all that passion, you can bet there were some pretty freakin' amazing signs.
