Stephanie Mark has made a name for herself as one half of the duo behind The Coveteur, a website that documents the closets of some of fashion’s biggest names. Alongside co-founder Jake Rosenberg, Mark has released a coffee table book called The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style featuring 43 exclusive profiles of designers, trendsetters, and icons (hello, Hugh Hefner!) We caught up with Mark to talk about OTT collections, starstruck moments, and being “adopted” by Bobbi Brown.
“Christian Louboutin was really special. He’s so kind, and he’s only asked five or six press outlets in his house throughout his career. Being in his space, hearing him tell the story of how we got started—he’s an icon in fashion but he’s an icon to everyone. To have that one on one time with him was so special. I was really nervous, and I don’t get nervous that much!”

“Suzanne Rogers is a collector in the truest form, she really champions designers she works with and buys from. She gets to know the designers and supports them. Shooting her closet took a long time, we walked in and were like ‘We’re gonna need more people at this shoot. We need to call for back-up reinforcements!’”
“For Cindy Crawford, we were nervous and excited, it was an ‘oh my god pinch me’ moment. Just because of the impact she’s had on the industry. Her house is so stunning in Malibu, right by the water. It was jaw-dropping. She is so lovely, and laid-back, and talked about her cottage in Muskoka.”

“We are in people’s houses, so it’s not uncommon for people to feed us, we lie in people’s beds. Bobbi Brown, she literally adopted us. She sent us home with food—we were staying at an AirBNB and she was like ‘There’s no food there!’ Jake went to her house for the Jewish holidays.”

Her skincare specialist explains.
When you get a bespoke facial from Jennifer Brodeur at Bella Clinique in Montreal, you’ll also meet “Max,” the LED-light-therapy machine that Brodeur designed in 2003 and always refers to as a person. (It’s actually called “Max+.”)
The machine, she explains, harnesses research from NASA and uses light wavelengths to treat skin concerns. Skin cells absorb the UV-free light as energy. Red-light wavelengths, for example, are said to stimulate fibroblasts to create collagen, while yellow light tightens skin.
“It’s interesting because you don’t feel anything, so a lot of clients at first were like, ‘Are you sure you’re doing something?’” she says, laughing. Any disbelievers can call Oprah; Brodeur has been treating her since 2012.
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.
Looks from Acne, Dior, Givenchy, Chanel and more.
Thick and full boy brows, flat-ironed hair and a statement purple lip was the look at Acne Studios.
Luminous, glossy cheekbones were all the rage on the runway at Balmain, so don't retire your strobing cream just yet.
Models' pouts were pampered with a youthful, ultra-shiny berry gloss – it reminds us of a shade we might have kept in our pencil case in elementary school.
Business in the front, party in the back! The slicked buns on the Dior runway weren't as prim as they looked, when the underside revealed four immaculate plaits. We know this look will be a summer staple when humidity levels are through the roof.
The hair at Elie Saab was sleek and straight, however, the simple move of tucking strands behind the ear elevated the look. We're also lusting over the soft pink pearlized lip, '70s shades and opulent earrings.
We loved the undone, lazy-girl-friendly braids at Etam. It's the perfect option when you find yourself in a summer hair rut. We can't wait to rock them with a pair of oversized aviators and the faint smell of sunscreen.
"Star Trek" meets "That '70s Show". While this look might not be for everyone, we couldn't help but fawn over the precision placement of the bangs.
Proof that the low pony never goes out of style.
Don't throw out your holiday glitter on boxing day. Lips at Manish Arora were garnished with metallic gloss, and paired with bushy, brushed-up brows.
Virgil Abloh's inspiration for spring/summer 2017 was the modern, empowered woman. The powerful collection was topped off with this unique hairstyle, reminiscent of the alt-Instagram girl.
