The basic knit is reinvented and a new trend is born.
When was the last time you thought purposefully of a cardigan? The button-up knit with preppy roots emerged as a hero piece on the runways of New York and the message continued in London. Like denim and the white button-down before it, the cardigan was taken apart and reinvented by the likes of Christopher Kane, who presented holographic, slightly oversized versions. In New York, Alexander Wang sent model Stella Lucia down his party-ready runway in a loose, borrowed-from-dad knit that read as anything but precious. Lacoste, Ulla Johnson and Dion Lee took a fuzzier approach, while Tory Burch and Victoria Beckham represented the more sophisticated end of the spectrum.
The takeaway? Whether undone, artsy or preppy, the cardigan is infinitely versatile and, for the first time in many seasons, covetable.

"Who’d you rather what?"
We never would have taken J.Lo for a Harry Styles fan. The singer was cornered into a game of “Who’d Your Rather” while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.
And while she remained super coy about whatever is going on between her and Drake, she got pretty candid during the game featuring some of Hollywood’s most desirable bachelors. Watch below to see which Oscar-winning actor she's not-so-secretly pining for and what star is "like a brother" to her.
On your marks, get set...BAKE! The CBC is launching a Canadian version of the Great British Bake Off.
The cult hit Brit show—which is just week after glorious week of amateur bakers vying for the ultimate crown of Star Baker while being super supportive of each other—is being given a Canuck iteration, with casting for the Canadian show aka The Great Canadian Baking Show announced today. (Fun fact: 23 other countries, including Australia and Ireland, have their own home-grown spin on the format already).
So if you know your frangipane from your frangipani, have a passion for crafting sculpture out of bread, make a killer butter tart and want to do it all in a tent, you're going to want to sign up here.
May the best baker win!

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Chapter 4,372 in the Drake/Rihanna love story: Drake, arguably the world's friendliest ex, gave RiRi a birthday shoutout during his concert in Dublin yesterday. (MELTING.) And since nothing is private anymore, obviously it was captured on someone's cell and blasted out to the world for us to replay over and over.
"It's somebody's birthday today—somebody I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect for," he said. "So, instead of singing 'Happy birthday,' though, we just going to do this in Dublin. Instead of singing 'Happy Birthday,' we're going to set it off just like this..."
Do you see a reunion in their future? Is the whole J.Lo thing over? We only know this: so happy RN.
