Remember paper-bag pants?
Stylish star Sienna Miller was spotted out in London in a somewhat forgotten trend, the paper-bag waist.
While a trend inspired by a paper bag may not sound like one you'd ever want to bring back, when styled with the right ensemble they make for a major street style moment. Before getting Sienna's stamp of approval, the pant was notably revived on the runway at Stella McCartney, who paired the pant with fitted, corset-like tops. It's the first time in several seasons that the cinched silhouette has entered the fashion conversation.
Pants like these can't help but take the spotlight, so we love how Sienna rocked her dusty rose pair with a simple sweater and matching peep-toe shoes.
Here are some options to get the tapered trouser look:

If you're eyes are still a little moist after Barack Obama's farewell address, let Michelle Obama dry those tears.
The FLOTUS appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for her last appearance as First Lady, and took part in Fallon's hilarious "Thank You Notes" skit. Our fave part? When she penned a letter to her "silver fox" Barack.
Perhaps she has a future in broadcast? "I like this side of the desk," she joked to Fallon, who looked legit worried. (As he should be.)
And welcome to 2017, turmeric. We've heard so much about you.
The vivid spice, which is thousands of years old and a staple in curry dishes, is having a moment in the coffee space. At Toronto's adorable and health-minded nutbar cafe—which is less than a month old—turmeric lattes are as delicious as they are beautiful. But do they benefit your bod? Nutbar founder Kate Taylor Martin says yes.
"As a health-focused cafe, we were drawn to incorporating turmeric into our menu because of its powerful nutritional properties," she says. "It's one of the most potent anti-inflammatories on the planet." Taylor Martin is also a registered holistic nutritionist, hence the impressively healthy menu, which spans kelp noodle bowls to power balls and moringa-laced smoothies. Nutbar's turmeric latte costs $6 and contains black pepper (which helps with turmeric absorption), cinnamon, vanilla, nutbar nutmilk and raw honey.
But how does it taste? When I visited the adorable cafe a few days before Christmas, I took a trepidatious sip of my friend's Laura's nutty drink, expecting an unknown overpowering bouquet. But I was delighted—it was vibrant and creamy, and paired extremely well with the housemade "nutbar nutmilk", a custom blend of organic cashew, almond and coconut milks. Laura described it as "a more densely flavoured chai latte."
"The customer response has been incredible," says Taylor Martin, who names the dense spicy drink as one of her top sellers. And we're sure it has nothing to do with how the mustard hue pairs with the cafe's gorgeous, spice-splattered paper cups. Latte art fanatics, gird your loins.

ICYMI (for example, you've been on a luxury digital detox in the Swiss Alps or live in an alternate universe), La La Land star Ryan Gosling's Golden Globes acceptance speech for best actor in a comedy or musical broke the Internet Sunday night.
The reason? His shoutout to GF Eva Mendes. "I’d like to try and thank one person properly, and to say that while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer,” said the famously private star, who never referred to his spouse by name.
Now, Eva has paid her own tongue-in-cheek tribute to her beau. She posted this photo of her Golden Globes best-dressed pick Janelle Monáe (who wore custom polka-dotted Armani) with the caption. "Obviously this wasn't my favorite moment of the night....But it was definitely my favorite style moment of the night."
Also for your viewing enjoyment, here's a clip of Gosling's speech.
