The royals are not known for overt displays of emotion (unless you're Princess Charlotte and there are balloons involved). Which is why you have to realllly read between the lines to see the touching way Kate Middleton payed tribute to Princess Diana today.
The Duchess of Cambridge (with husband) was in Manchester today, wearing a rather lovely checked Erdem frock coat. The pair had several engagements, but the one with the coat connection is a hospice that Princess Diana opened way back in 1991, wearing, you guessed it, a rather lovely checked frock coat.
And sure, Diana's was red and very shoulder-padded, but many royal watchers are reading this as Kate's little nod toward the legacy of her mother-in-law.
In related news, Kate's hair looked SO GOOD.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's fourth wedding anniversary was super R-O-M-A-N-T-I-C. The celebrity couple and parents to 18-month-old Silas kept it ultra low-key, ringing in the occasion with some wine...and an intense game of Scrabble.
Jessica shared an Instagram of the date night, bragging that she was finally able to beat her hubby. “I played ‘sardine’ and got the 50 bonus points! Guess who is no longer undefeated," she said.

It would be nice if we could just eat and drink our way to perfect skin: a bite of salmon here, a glass or two or water there. “Unfortunately when you ingest things orally, they don’t necessarily go to the skin to give benefits,” says Dr. Kucy Pon, a Toronto-based dermatologist. “With regard to collagen-based drinks or food, there is not a lot of data in the medical literature to know whether there are true benefits to the skin.” Takeaway: Apply a topical product in addition to any supplements you might be taking.
If you do just one thing in your…
Exfoliate. “A healthy rate of skin-cell renewal is one of the key components of radiant and even-toned skin,” says New York dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross, who recommends the daily use of alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids.
"Scientific research shows that collagen and elastin production starts to decline in quantity and quality when we reach the age of 30,” he explains. A retinoid will stimulate new cell production and “inhibit the body’s natural enzymes that break down collagen.”
Add peptides into your routine. "They stimulate collagen in a very unique way,” says Gross. “The more receptors you put to work, the more firming you’ll see. If your concern is wrinkles or laxity, then it’s an important ingredient to look for in your products.” (See here for more info on why they are key.)
Skin is drier now than ever before. Use an oil, like Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules ($135 for 60), to hydrate and prevent water loss.

Today, The Met announced the theme of the next Costume Institute exhibition, set for Spring 2017. The exhibition will focus on Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons. The exhibit will explore the designer's relationship with the concepts of beauty and good taste, and the fine line between fashion and anti-fashion. It's only the Met's second exhibit of a living designer's work, the other displayed designs by Yves Saint Laurent in 1983. As always, the theme of the exhibition will carry through to the Met Gala. We can already picture the avant-garde looks to be donned by Gigi, Bella and Kendall come May.
