The Thing Kristen Stewart Says She ‘Owes’ People

Fashion

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart has been notoriously private about her personal life (and for good reason, her four-year courtship and subsequent break-up with Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson was highly scrutinized in the media), but the actress is finally opening up about her current relationship with Alicia Cargile. “I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive,” said Kristen who confirmed last month that she is dating her former assistant. “I still want to protect my personal life, but I don’t want to seem like I’m protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people. I love her so much.” Explaining the disingenuous effect the spotlight had on her past relationship, the Café Society star said, “People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product. It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me.” We’re hopeful that Kristen’s enlightenment will help to inspire those who feel the need to protect or even hide their true selves for fear of scrutiny in favor of self-acceptance and of course, true love.

Emily Ratajkowski's Sexy One Piece Is All the Convincing You Need to Ditch Your Bikinis

Fashion

If you haven't fully embraced one pieces as a staple part of swimsuit rotation, leave it to Emily Ratajkowski to change your mind. The model, who admittedly has a thing for bikinis, snapped a picture hanging on the beach in what's surely one of the sexiest yet: a black one piece.

It might not be as skimpy as the bikinis in her collection, but thanks to a lower-cut side and a high rise on the leg, it highlights her curves perfectly. Don't believe that this might be one of the sexiest suits on record? Read on to see it in full — you might just be convinced to scoop up one of our editor's picks inside.

Ulysse Nardin Royal Python Skeleton Tourbillon

Fashion

The Ulysse Nardin Skeleton timepiece is a transparent beauty, where the inner workings become the art form. It shares its fluid network of positive and negative space intertwined ever so delicately with its wearer.

Ulysse Nardin

The seemingly infinite maze of individual movements, parts and bridges are reduced to essential composition and masterfully reinterpreted into a rare piece of work. The Royal Python Skeleton Tourbillon takes the beautiful complexity of its predecessor to an entirely new level.

Natural, free-flowing light passes through the timepiece, creating radiant luminosity. Silicium technology and an in-house-developed flying tourbillon honor the mechanics of the collection, featuring a silicium balance spring, anchor and escapement wheel. Hand-painted movement bridges dotted with rubies reveals the skill and sensibility of the artist, while exhibiting the wondrous world of Ulysse Nardin’s métiers d’art. A python strap finishes the snakeskin-inspired aesthetic of the entire timepiece.
Lush like the jungle, this “call of the wild” timekeeper is as original in style as it is in makeup. A limited edition of 18 pieces in rose gold 4N, the Royal Python Skeleton Tourbillon presents a fearless character intended for the uninhibited at heart.

UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON: merging colours, blending identities

Fashion

What is the face of London? And the face of Tokyo? New York? Milan? Berlin? Paris? In a brand new United Colors of Benetton global campaign, the face of each model is a partly analog, partly digital combination of all the features found in the six fashion capitals of the world.

UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON: merging colours, blending identities

United Colors of Benetton started by investigating the ethnic make-up of each capital, with interesting results. Using statistical demographic analysis from a number of population information sources, incorporating international data as well as city-specific census reports, in order to most accurately reflect the proportion of each city’s specific racial mix. For example, Asians are the second largest ethnic group in London after the Caucasian. In Milan the Filipinos and the Egyptians are the most populous foreign communities. In New York, half of the population is either black or latino, and only 5% of Paris’ foreign residents come from Africa.

For each capital, United Colors of Benetton moved from research to photographing a group of women that, considering their facial traits, could represent the city’s mix of races and cultures. Then all the portraits were combined thanks to an advanced algorithm ensuring that the proportion of each ethnicity was reflected through features such as skin tone, the shape of the eyes and nose, hair type and color, as well as overall face shape.

The resulting face for each city was then composited it into the final image, giving life to the capital’s ideal resident. All together, the six faces are stunning portraits coming from a world in which the melting pot, so revered in thirty years of Benetton’s images, has finally become the norm. Surely a software may have helped to reveal it, but there’s little space for doubt: that world is finally here and diversity is even more beautiful than we imagined it to be.
