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:

Roberta Einer spring 2017
This designer's clothes aren't for shrinking violets.
Estonian-born, London-based designer Roberta Einer's frenetic and playful vibe is infectious. Since launching her label in 2015, Einer has become known for her bold use of couture-level embellishment and hand embroidery. It's no surprise that prior to launching her label, Einer worked with Olivier Rousteing as a print and embroidery assistant at Balmain.
We chatted to Einer about her spring collection, which is a mix of mad prints and reworked silhouettes inspired by pastel-hued South Beach circa 1980.
A look from Roberta Einer's spring 2017 collection
What's the mood and feeling of this collection?
"I drew main inspiration from Miami and South beach – 1980’s poolside poster art was translated into embellishment, highly worked fabrics featured botanicals and tropical birds. For the colours I was inspired by illustrators like Jiro Bevis and Yoko Honda who [featured] Miami a lot in their work. I wanted to recreate what all those strong Studio 54 characters like Bianca Jagger, Janice Dickinson and Debbie Harry would be wearing if they went to Miami. The pastel hues of the city’s architecture lead to using rainbow palette of greens, blues, pinks and fluorescents that were set by monochrome. It’s a very fun and sexy collection – just like Miami! – with lots of high shine and big contrasts in textures and cuts."
In terms of textures, what was the process in selecting or creating then?
"Fabric and material sourcing is one of the most important parts when designing collection. We get custom tweeds done in Linton mill, which is the same mill that develops Chanel tweeds. We get jacquards from Paris and leather from Italy. All embroidery is manufactured in one of the best hand embroidery factories, that also produces for Balmain, Ralph & Russo and Lanvin. We [experiment] in-house for the most creative techniques and finishes and then give the production to the industry’s best."
Who's the Roberta Einer customer?
"I don’t really believe that there is a certain age or image that most of our customers have, because for me it has always been about designing every kind of woman – all ages, all ethnicities, all body types and characters. I started selling from the very first season globally, so it became vital to design for all types of women.
One thing that unites all customers is that they wish to stand out and have this playful way of dressing and living. For me, it’s really important that the customer wears clothes and not the other way around. And with designs like mine, you will really need a quite a character to pull it off!"
No, not THAT job. Prince William definitely still plans to be king one day. In fact, he's quitting his day job as an ambulance pilot to focus more on his royal duties.
In a statement today, Kensington Palace revealed that William will end his tenure with the emergency services this summer and plans on moving the family to London from their current base in Norfolk.
It was also announced that Prince George will be starting school in the UK capital in September, as will Charlotte when her time comes.
In breaking celebrity hygiene news, Brie Larson hasn't washed her hair since the Golden Globes.
At the time of this writing, that would add up to a grand total of 4 days without nary a trace of shampoo touching the 'do she wore to the glitzy award show (see image above).
Larson, who won an Oscar for last year's Room, celebrated this (questionable) feat with an Instagram shot of her hair in its current state, defiantly sticking it to the hair care industry by hashtagging: #dirtyhairdontcare
