Barely a half hour after Esquire's New York Fashion Week: Men's bash starts, the space is at capacity. A tall man wearing sunglasses in the dark is trying to push to the front of the line to tell the bouncers he's the president of Def Jam; they escort him away from the door, amused. When we finally enter the Damien Hirst-scattered Rose Bar lounge, it's more packed than we've ever seen but somehow we make it to the front just before Chairlift takes to the stage and Caroline Polachek shakes and silences the room with her ethereal instrument of a voice.
If you didn't already think they were cool enough, Hollywood starlets Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart have apparently received a stamp of approval from the godmother of all cool-girls, Patti Smith. Last night, Amazon & Lionsgate with The Cinema Society hosted the New York premiere of Cafe Society, Woody Allen's highly anticipated new film. After the star-studded screening, the cast and, yes, even the director, balled out at The Carlyle Hotel for a post-premiere bash as swanky as the film itself.
Frugal foodies already know what we're writing about, because this is one of the two most joyous times of the year for them - Restaurant Week! This hallowed time in NYC, lasting from July 25th to August 19th, is graciously way more than a week long and the one and only circumstance in which you can get a reasonable meal at many of the top restaurants in the city.
Forget what you've learned about public decency and leave your insecurities at home, today is National Nude Day. Just in time to help you beat the summer heatwave, National Nude Day has arrived to encourage you to shed the restrictions of everyday clothing for something a little more "au natural." Today, leave that adorable summer wardrobe hanging in your closet and prepare to strut it in your birthday suit (where acceptable). This wonderful holiday comes but once a year, and definitely deserves to be celebrated.
Yes, we love mid-century Brigitte Bardot - mod sex goddess, pouty before we knew sad was sexy, most perfect curves of all times (sorry Bey) - but all those cigarettes, late night parties on the French Riviera, and not-so-casual racism took a pretty big toll on her beauty and character. Here's how to take better care of yourself while looking just as glamorous as the original babe.
You may have heard a thing or two about Bastille Day. It happens to be a French festival of sorts, but what you really need to know is that it's another day to drink! Celebrating the French Revolution has never been so fun with these festive cocktails. Hey, it's a better excuse than another Thirsty Thursday.
Following the recent Pokémon Go phenomenon, Nintendo has announced that they are releasing an accessory to the game that will make users more antisocial than ever before. Hey - don't hate the player, hate the game.
In anticipation of Rio, we have all been eagerly watching the Olympic Trials. With the most recent, and obviously the most loved sport, U.S. Women's Gymnastics, completed, there has been no shortage of talent. We'd like to take a moment to point out that while you're watching (and wondering how it's even remotely possible to throw yourself in the air while flipping and turning) and sitting on your couch, eating chocolate and drinking wine, some of these world-class athletes are most definitely younger than you.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who previously stole our hearts in Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad, are back again - this time with a musical. La La Land follows the story of a jazz musician named Sebastian and his struggling actress girlfriend Mia as they both try to achieve fame in Hollywood. If the idea of Gosling singing sweet love songs doesn't make you weak in the knees, we really don't know what will.
