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.

Come des Garçons Spring/Summer 2017 Source: Imaxtree.com
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.
After filling their front row with an assortment of young It Girls and Guys this season, Dolce & Gabbana is still hanging with the cool crowd for their Spring/Summer campaign.
Stylish stars like Zendaya, YouTube sensation Cameron Dallas, and Cindy Crawford’s model son Presley Gerber modeled in the streets of Capri in looks from the new collection, and we have serious FOMO.
Alert: there’s more RiRi merch to get your hands on. The singer has launched her fourth collection in collaboration with Stance socks, and this one may be the best yet.
Called the Japan Collection, the socks feature gorgeous Geisha and lotus flower inspired illustrations.
We also can’t get over LA artist Bijou Karman’s paintings of RiRi as a geisha gal for the campaign.
