Always the first with the newest gear and tech? This one’s for you. As millennials, above all, embrace their smartphone’s photographic capabilities; the need for point-and-shoot cameras has dwindled. In fact, believe it or not, one report issued earlier this year found that 90% of people have only ever used their smartphones to take a picture.
InStyle If 2018 taught us anything, it's that what was once considered lame (or, rather, dated) is now cool again. Slime green clothing, fanny packs, and biker shorts were some of last year's biggest fashion trends, and in the beauty world, everyone cut their hair off into bobs and wore '90s hair accessories like butterfly clips. Expect to feel the '90s and early '00s nostalgia to continue into 2019 because shiny lips are making a comeback, too. Even though matte lipstick has always been appealing to anyone who grew up on sticky gloss in the early aughts, it's not the only finish to wear on your lips. In fact, shiny-finished lipstick is already considered one of the biggest beauty trends of awards season. Kristina Uspenieva Emphasizes Luxury at a Penthouse Apartment in Krasnodar, Russia When a family of four took residence in a penthouse apartment on the 25th floor of a new building in Krasnodar, a city on the Kuban River in southwest Russia, interior designer Kristina Uspenieva’s challenges were twofold. “Such a residence is a privilege, and I knew I must emphasize the status of the owner," she says. "And the functional division of space is very important.
2018 Fashion Trend Predictions If we’ve learned anything from 2017’s wild and wacky fashion, it’s to expect the unexpected. Austere minimalism went out the window in favor of a magpie-like love of glitz, glamour, and granny-chic style. Artists outpaced musicians as the coolest collaborators. The New Fashion Communities: How the Industry Is Embracing Inclusivity It was dark. A misty rain was falling, a gospel choir was arrayed in front of a row of cabins—relics of the nineteenth-century free black community of Weeksville in Brooklyn—and Kerby Jean-Raymond, the designer of Pyer Moss, was showing his spring 2019 collection. The clothes on the makeshift runway were a literal rendering of the ties that bind: Jean-Raymond, the winner of the 2018 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, had commissioned portraits from the artist Derrick Adams, which were literally woven into the clothes—a young black man enlivened a white tee; a father and child shimmered on a beaded sheath. The night was a tribute to community—not just the friends and family in the audience and on the runway, but also a kinship with ancestors. “I want to write a new narrative,” Jean-Raymond explained.

If you’re using social media to promote your photography, you should know that according to Forrester Research, only 16 percent of your Facebook followers see your posts organically and only 10 percent of Twitter followers see your tweets when they are posted. I’ve found Instagram (follow me @joefarace) to be more organic because it’s almost entirely image-based.
The Challenge of Freedom: Kris Van Assche on Rebooting Berluti Kris Van Assche has been biding his time. Since his transition from Dior Homme last year as part of the mammoth Paris reshuffle of 2018 that saw Virgil Abloh go to Louis Vuitton, Kim Jones sidestep to Dior, and Hedi Slimane pop up again at Celine, Van Assche has been notable by his absence from the cycle of brouhaha in his new role heading up Berluti—which he succeeded from Haider Ackermann, and before him Alessandro Sartori, and which is the only exclusively menswear brand in the LVMH group portfolio. So what has Van Assche been up to?
Inside Sophie Dries Paris’ loft interior design project Architect Sophie Dries was just 28 when she established her studio back in 2014. Four years on, and her growing portfolio spans showrooms in Istanbul to collectible product design that caught our eye at Salone del Mobile last year. Her latest foray is on her home turf of Paris, where she has taken a friend’s loft space in Canal Saint-Martin district and converted it into a minimalist cove defined by natural light and soft tones. In Photos: A Decade With Tigers This book is a compilation of 14 years of my work - from the fieldwork put in, to writing the stories and the final production. It's for people who love tigers. In that it is an attempt to document the stories of Indian tigers, some of which are now almost legendary. I felt strongly that some of these tigers and the stories they inspired deserved to be made immortal in a way, through this book.
