Chanel's Spring Summer 2017 ad campaign is here.
When I first laid eyes on Chanel's latest visuals courtesy of one Karl Lagerfeld, it took me a moment to realize that Arizona Muse appears in both sets of campaign images. But perhaps that's the point. The spring/summer campaign, which echoes Chanel's "Data Centre" ready-to-wear show, is a study in contrasts. First, Muse is a "cyber punk" dressed in bold tweeds and pop-art accessories. Then, rocking a shag hair style and black lipstick, she's "pop Lolita." The images are both feminine and edgy, artful and futuristic. A closer look reveals the collection's digital influences – an embroidered jacket looks like a switchboard and a beaded choker reminds me of an LED ticker display. In a word, it's thebombdotcom. See the whole thing below.
Looks like Priyanka Chopra got Friday-the-Thirteenthed...
The Pantene ambassador / action star is now resting comfortably at home after a fall on the set of her ABC show Quantico. Chopra, 34, apparently fell, suffered a concussion while shooting, and was rushed to the hospital. The network is calling it a "minor incident".
She's now been released and is expected to be back at work on Monday.
Fishnets may have been all the rage last year, but Kendall's new spin feels fresh and so very 2017.
Kendall Jenner is starting the year by bringing her fashion A-game. The model was recently spotted strutting around West Hollywood in a particularly fashion-forward look, styled by Monica Rose. If you're still on the fence about giving this breakout trend a try, let Kenny convince you.
Next to her girl Hailey Baldwin's all-black look, her golden shearling jacket by Acne Studios has major impact, and we love it with that velvet House of Sunny hoodie and ultra-cool cuffed jeans by Re/Done.
The coolest part about the outfit though? The brand new way she wore fishnet tights. Peeking through clear ankle boots, they're the perfect surprising and edgy detail.
Kendall was clearly (forgive the pun) just as obsessed with it as we are, because she rocked it courtside too.

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.
