There’s something sexy about “raw egg” and “coupe” in the same sentence. While the concept tends to deter the squeamish, this old-world concoction is backed by some serious alchemy and fueled by a new-age revival. A good eggtail is generally made with a fresh, unpasteurized white given a good shake sans ice (also known as “the dry shake”) along with its sister ingredients, allowing the proteins to coagulate for a luscious froth. Ice is then incorporated to cool and slightly dilute the drink, which is strained and served (usually) straight up. Take a look at some of the city’s best takes on this silky-smooth sipper…we’ll spare you the egg puns.

While most of us are still packing for our upcoming Art Basel festivities, Vênsette's Founder and CEO Lauren Remington Platt has already headed down south to celebrate the launch of her innovative, on-demand beauty service's latest expansion to Miami. Joined by supermodel Ines Rivero, Platt hosted 40 of Miami's most influential women for a dinner at Casa Tua. With outposts already established in NYC, LA, and San Francisco, Vênsette has officially taken over four major U.S. cities! Sure, we're eager to see what happens next, but first, let's peep that party!
New York is a bubble, and at one point or another, we have to leave for a few moments - often to return with a clear mind and a wealth of curiosity. Embrace the power of getting away for the weekend, whether it's to drink, relax, zone out or work out. We've put together our favorite activities outside of the city that don't cost a fortune (bonus!). Rent a lake house upstate or stay in a haunted hotel on the shores of a river in Pennsylvania. Meet locals, get inspired, and learn the history of these chronicled towns.
Over the weekend, NeueHouse hosted the 2014 Creative Time Fall Ball, featuring art installations and performances by Tom Sachs, Marco Brambilla, Vanity Projects, Robert Pruitt and Will Cotton, as well as musical sets by a variety of talented DJ's and musical performances featuring Sasha Frere Jones and Citizens Band. The eccentric, wild sleepover featured a lazered-out dance party and had Dustin Yellin running around practically naked (see slideshow). Other guests sported their best pajama ensembles (Jon Neidich even brought along a teddy!) to the overnight extravaganza. Guests enjoyed slushie cocktails, cotton candy, and all the best sleepover games: Twister, puzzles, yoga, and more, before heading to bed where an array of perfectly-lined cots were set up for tired party goers. For an inside look at the event, be absolutely sure to check out our slideshow.
Once again, celebrities, performers, models, and more, donned their best looks to the American Music Awards. The evening was complete with leg-baring dresses (and dresses that just bared it all), as well as bold, bright colored attire and sparkling ensembles. From Kendall Jenner to Taylor Swift and Rita Ora, we couldn't help but notice all the awesome looks from last night's star-studded show. Be sure to check out our slideshow to see who made our best dressed list!
It never fails. Every year, around August, we muse romantically about winter—capes, layers, hot lattes. It's all very dreamy until the morning you wake up and realize you are frozen to your bed sheets. The winter weather seems to have hit us early, so it's time to face the lower temps in style. From cashmere scarves to (faux) fur stoles, here are a few of our favorite accessories to keep you looking cool while staying warm this season.
Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the year - it's full of laughter, football and, most importantly, food.

Even if you're invited out, arriving with one of these dishes in hand will surely make you the best guest (and possibly earn you some coveted leftovers!).

Last night called for a celebration of legends high above the glittering lights of NYC's Columbus Circle and sweeping Central Park. Hosted at the glamorous Mandarin Oriental, the 2014 Pratt Institute Scholarship Gala welcomed countless creatives, creators, and members of the Pratt community for a dinner honoring three legends in the worlds of art and design, and to raise funds for the students of Pratt to hone their crafts and live their dreams. The iconic fashionista Iris Apfel, jewelry designer David Yurman, and #InternetBreaker/PAPER Magazine co-founder Kim Hastreiter all received awards specially-designed by Pratt student Chengtao Yi, sculptures made of glass and metal meant to evoke the movement of nature. While guests enjoyed a delicious dinner consisting of spinach salad, salmon, and "forbidden" rice, presenters Duro Olowu, Padma Lakshmi, and Paul Greenhalgh spoke highly of the night's honorees, sharing praise and anecdotes about each of them. In addition to the awards presentation, the night's highlights included a text-pledge fundraiser, in which screens live-broadcast the donations guests texted in. By the end of the night $60,000 had been raised and inspiration had hit everyone in the room.
