There are few people on earth who can reinvent themselves time and time again as masterfully as pop icon Madonna. The multifaceted entertainer celebrates her 58th birthday today, and has decades of transformative style under her belt to show for it. She pioneered the underwear-as-outerwear trend, causing a stir with risqué costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier. And as the artistic side of Madonna evolved, so did her beauty regime—the frizzy eighties hair went out the door with prom dresses and fingerless lace gloves. In fact the nineties saw a sleeker Madonna emerge overall, starting with glamorous looks from Gucci by Tom Ford, right through to a penchant for traditional Indian saris, and, ultimately, Kabbalah colors. After crossing the pond for her then beau Guy Ritchie, her style went the route of Saville Row, with local borrowed-from-the-boys tweeds (and a transatlantic accent to boot.) She returned to her rebel-rousing roots for a brief moment at the 2013 punk-themed Met Gala, going pantless on the red carpet in Givenchy. And it seemed that a modern-day Marlene Dietrich was in her mind’s eye when she stepped out at the Grammy Awards in a Ralph Lauren suit later that year. Clearly this material girl isn’t about to slow down anytime soon.

Jessica Alba presenting her Jessica Alba x DL1961 collaboration in New York City on Tuesday.
Jessica Alba is a champion of the environment, female entrepreneurship, and all around kick-assery—but her latest cause is something especially close to our hearts: Butts.
Yes, the Dark Angel herself (who arguably has one of Hollywood's best posteriors), has partnered with denim brand DL1961 on a line of jeans with the sole aim of boosting your booty. Why, you might ask? It is, after all, a bit of a specific category.
"Because boobs come and go, but butts are always in," declared an enthusiastic Alba, as she presented her line to Glamour on Tuesday in New York City. "They're always important...and these jeans will give you that perfect apple—or peach!"
It's not surprising that Alba chose jeans as her first foray in to fashion design—after all, she's pretty much always photographed wearing some form of denim. Her goal was to create high-waisted jeans that actually flatter—and don't venture into "mom jeans" territory. "I wanted to have high-waisted jeans that look really good on all different kinds of bodies," she said. "I wanted it to be kind of tighter in the thigh, but I didn't want the booty to be pressed down. I also wanted it to be nipped in at the waist, and the pockets in the back to be tilted in a V-shape, to give you that great round, curved butt." In turn, the jeans have a contour affect, giving the illusion of height and a smaller waist and thighs.
In addition to several straight-leg styles, Alba also presented a drop-crotch chino style, an all-in-one flight suit, boyfriend jeans, and flares. What's great about the line, besides its unique derriere-enhancing properties, is that it's designed to wear from work to play, and most styles don't feature holes, whiskers, or other denim details that make the jeans look more casual. "Everything is designed to wear to work...or to the airport," she half-joked.
But let's get back to the juicy stuff (get it?) and hear Alba's truly awesome opinions on all things booty: "The butt's always been celebrated," she mused. "I don't know one man that isn't into booty. And I feel like women, more often than not, women like their butts and it's more accepted [to have a big butt]."
And eeks, what if you have a flat tush? "If you don't necessarily have a booty, these jeans will make you look like you have a bigger one," she says. "Which is nice."
Oh, and will someone text Sir-Mix-A-Lot and let him know that all his dreams came true? Thanks.
Check out the our favorite looks from the 10-piece fall 2016 line here and all the booty boosting goodness. The line will retail from $188 to $898 (the highest price point is for leather, but most styles are priced closer to $188) at DL1961.com, as well as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Shopbop, and Bloomingdales beginning in August.
Each member of the Kardashian-Jenner crew certainly has her own unique go-to styles when it comes to fashion. Kim loves a tight dress and duster coat, Kourtney and Khloe opt for high-waisted jeans and bodysuits, and Kendall and Kylie kick it in more casual styles, like distressed denim and hoodies. When it comes to swimwear, however, all of the girls land on the same page. Whether a super high neck or waist, wraparound straps, or crazy cutout one-pieces, they have amassed quite a collection of swimwear that, let's just say, will leave you with tan lines that are more interesting than most.
The thing is, though, these crazy-tan-line-suits are really fun; They're sexy and sporty at the same time, reveal just the right amount of skin without giving away too much, and give you just that extra oomph in the style department than a classic string bikini doesn't. This summer, break out of the standard swimwear mold with these suits that are totally worth the weird tan lines (though—we do suggest using a little bit more sunblock on the days you choose to lay out in one of these fashionable suits!).

Now, watch for some weirdly entertaining facts about the Kardashians and Jenners.
Most people turn 30 having accomplished at least some things on their bucket lists, but Lady Gaga turns 30 today with just a few notches on her belt.
Gaga's you know, just count a few things, like say, winning a gazillion Grammys, being named Glamour's Woman of the Year in 2013, MTV Awards, an Oscar and a Golden Globe, performing at the Super Bowl and oh yeah, becoming a worldwide mega star and all-around do-gooder like it's NBD. So, on this milestone birthday, we salute you, Lady Gaga, with 30 of your most over-the-top, OMG—and yes, occasionally perishable—outfits that have made us love you.

Rihanna is famous for taking fashion risks. Most recently she wore a bag as a necklace. And her new Fenty collection for Puma—debuted at fall 2016 New York Fashion Week—and recent Manolo Blahnik collab are both totally fierce. But the one that really showed her fearlessness? The Swarovski crystal-embroidered see-through dress she wore to the 2014 CFDA Awards to accept her Fashion Icon Award. She wore the dress, custom designed by Adam Selman, with no bra underneath and a plain thong that matched her skin tone.
And that, she tells Vogue in their April issue (her fourth cover), is the one thing in life she regrets. “I just liked it better without the lines underneath. Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra? I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled. That’s the only regret I have in my life.”
She looked pretty killer anyway. But I guess we all have those coulda-woulda-shoulda fashion moments.
The '90s has never really felt like my decade for fashion, although I've always loved the aesthetic. The skintight crop tops and baby tees were just not a trend that I felt flattered my figure. But seeing pics of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner in their '90s vibes day in day out on Instagram inspired me to rethink my personal ban on the '90s trends that are so right now. First, I took on Kendall on my blog, The 12ish Style, (which focuses on fashion for size-12-to-18 women living in a size-2 world). Next up, I looked to Gigi to find a look that represented the decade but also made me feel confident.
The inspo: Gigi Hadid in full '90s regalia at the Yeezy show in New York in February
My obsession: The outfit Gigiwore to the Yeezy show last month—it drew me in BIG TIME. Styled by Monica Rose, the slip dress and choker combo is so 90’s it hurts… and yet on Gigi, it's just so good.Seeing as I’m ready to burn all my cold weather clothes and pretend it’s spring, Gigi’s outfit couldn’t have hit these winter weary eyes at a better time. I knew from the moment I saw it I had to recreate it.
If that sounds like a weird undertaking, let me pause to explain. It Girls like Gigi are dressed by the best stylists in the biz, resulting in amazing outfit inspiration for the rest of us. Since the pros typically aren’t styling size 12 or 14 girls, I love the challenge of proving these looks can work on anyone.
The first recreation we did on The12ish Style was Kendall Jenner’s chic and easy travel outfit (also the work of Monica Rose), which I loved as a way of showing that travel doesn’t have to look as ugly as it often does. Like Kendall, Gigi is a huge fashion fixture, wearing only the most relevant outfits and possessing the ability to look classic in camel one day and crazy crop-top-cool the next. Of course none of us have Kendall’s or Gigi’s bank accounts or their bods, but I guess that’s my point—you don’t really need to in order to cop their style.
So when I set out to steal Gigi's '90s-tastic look for a night out, I was open to seeing how it would go. Not only was is super easy to pull off and a total success, but two things really surprised me (in a good way).
First, I already knew that for a curvy body, a slip dress isn’t an obvious choice. In fact, it’s a trend I would have skipped over if left to my own devices, but in this below-the-knee Natori version (equipped with plenty of stretch) I actually felt totally at ease and sexy. If you have a chest, don’t overthink the spaghetti straps—just throw on a black bra (skip the strapless, it’s not worth it) and remember you’re wearing a layer on top anyway.
The other huge shock was the choker. It took A LOT for me to will myself to put it on, and I was convinced my neck would be too big, but I actually loved it. Something about it was totally transformative and made me feel hot as hell. And yes, nobody is more surprised by this than me! It’s not worth splurging on, but for $7 at Forever 21 you really can’t go wrong.
To top it off, the perfect silky oversize bomber is obviously key. If Gigi’s $1700 version is just a little out of reach, try this nearly identical Polo version, a steal at under $150. With bombers so in this season (have you heard?), you bet you’ll wear it again and again. Add statement sunnies (to dodge the paparazzi), a small structured bag and minimal jewelry (like this Sarah Chloe lariat) and voila!—turns out it couldn't be easier to steal Gigi’s night-on-the-town style. Plus now you have a cool new go-to outfit to wear to death until summer hits!

If you're like us, you've seen every episode of Pretty Little Liars (maybe more than once) and are mega fans of Emily Fields—Rosewood's resident barista, one-time prodigy athlete, and the proverbial glue that holds the Liars together. You also know that Shay Mitchell, 28, who's spent her twenties rising to fame as Fields, is even more badass IRL. Follow her on Instagram (@shaym) and you quickly realize that she's the candid, pizza-loving, best-friend-you-never-had actress we'd all been craving. Case in point: when she hit the 10 million follower mark on the platform, she celebrated with a pizza three times her size. "Pizza is a big deal," she says, totally earnestly. "For my birthday every year [on the PLL set] you can always count on there being lots of it." She admits that she's made a refreshingly real-girl effort to get in with the guys supplying the giant pies: "My craft service are my best friends. They know if Shay’s working, it’s taco night. It’s a waste if I’m not working, because who’s going to eat it?" See? Real.
As PLL is rumored to be coming to an end (more on that later!) Mitchell is intent on finding jobs with even better craft services. Kidding. Actually, the actress is prepping for her next big projects—namely, her big screen debut in Mother's Day, a YouTube channel, and her very own lifestyle brand Amore & Vita. While she's off-season from PLL—where beginning in April, she'll return for another 9 months of filming (or in her words, "give birth to another season")—she shot this exclusive editorial with Aussie it girl and fashion blogger Margaret Zhang, and we got to interview the star. At the time of our chat, Mitchell had just returned from a glamorous trip to Hawaii (which, yes, you can could have followed by the hour on her Instagram and Snapchat accounts) and gave us a ring from the comfy quarters of bed in her L.A. home.
Glamour: How did this shoot with Zhang come about?
SM: To be honest with you, I meet a lot of people on Instagram, and she was on of them. I was so blown away with every single one of her photos—it didn’t matter if she was taking a photo of her cappuccino! She messaged me saying she was coming to L.A. and asked if I wanted to do a shoot. The only day that I could fit it in, I only had about an hour, so she came over to my house, I did my hair and makeup, and she pulled clothes out of her suitcase and we literally shot it in 45 minutes.
Glamour: You realize that's unheard of, right? What inspired the fashion direction?
SM: The shoot is La Dolce Vita meets California chill. Obviously we were shooting in California, but my house is Mediterranean and I have a love for everything Italian. In the photo by the lemon tree, I’m in a scene in La Dolce Vita in my mind. And the wet suits are very California, so it was a combination of my favorite things.
Glamour: Is that how you describe your style? If not, how do you explain it?
SM: Always changing. I don’t have one way to describe it. There are days where I wake up and I want to be a flower child, others where I want to wear all black, and some where I want to be super athletic and rock Jordan's and an oversize hoodie. It all depends on the mood I’m in—and that’s why fashion is so interesting. But if I had to choose a go-to, it's summer dresses. I love heels and throwing on a dress—I’m very girly in that aspect—and if I don’t have to wear a bra, we’re golden!
Glamour: That can be tricky for some. Do you have any styling hacks?
SM: I’ve done everything from Spanx to duct tape! I think I’ve tried it all. One time I forgot my Spanx and I was on Michael and Kelly and I really could not fit into this skirt, so I had everybody wrap me up in duct tape—I just turned around in circles and used a whole roll. Right before I went on, it wasn’t fitting right, so we ended up taking it all off. Which was so painful—like a free wax—and I just rocked the skirt with half of it done up. Sometimes you just can't get the zipper up! You just have to be okay with it; and I was, I had a great meal the night before.
Glamour: The magic of the camera! Speaking of which, what's your stance on editing your photos?
SM: I love visco, but I’m not about Facetuning the hell out of myself because I don’t want to be embarrassed when I meet you and you're like, 'Oh wow you look really different in real life.' If anything, I’d like to look better in person than I do in my photos! At the end of the day on social, you’re your own artist. If that’s what you want people to see on your instagram, do your thing! If you want to Facetune the hell out of your face, then go for it! More power to you; no judgement here.
Glamour: Okay, so what are your selfie taking tips?
SM: I always say find your light--and natural light is best. I like to take the photos from above. And a little side angle face tilt never hurts!
Glamour: Well, obviously that's working well, since you hit 11 million followers today. What does it really feel like to have that many fans?
SM: It’s kind of insane! I don’t really realize it that much when I post photos [because I have my notifications turned off]. I want everyone to look at my feed and be able to tell a lot about me. It's really what my life is: it’s colorful and I like to have fun and travel. It’s only me that posts on Instagram—I don’t have anyone who posts for me—and it’s cool for fans to get to know me outside of the show and outside of things that I do professionally. That’s why I love Instagram and Snapchat.
Glamour: Tell me about making the move to the big screen in Mother's Day. You’re alongside Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Julia Roberts in this movie—that's major.
SM: Getting to work with Garry Marshall was an incredible experience. And playing opposite Jennifer Aniston in every scene was kind of a trip—I mean, the entire time I was just thinking, ‘Do not call her Rachel. Do not call her Rachel. Please do not embarrass yourself!’ The fact that I’m going to have something in the theater is amazing. What’s most crazy is when I talk to my parents and they say, ‘We’ll be able to buy a ticket and come and see you in the movie theater.’
Glamour: And most of your scenes are with Anitson, right? It's a huge step in your career to be cast opposite her. Were you nervous to take it?
SM: I was a little nervous in the beginning but Jen made everyone feel really comfortable. I think anybody would be nervous around her! When you’ve grown up seeing her on TV and you’re looking at her in real life, it’s surreal. TV is different from film in that you see the people on a weekly basis—like us on our show [PLL] or Jen on Friends—and you feel like you know them because they’re in your home, you know when you’re going to see them, you get more familiar with them every week. So it was comfortable in a way because I felt like I grew up with Rachel.
Glamour: Well, like you said, you do the same as Emily on PLL. And Emily brings an important diversity factor to TV every week. I love that you have a Pilipino background and you’re also playing a LGBT character. It's been a true success because it’s actually not a big deal. It’s normal.
SM: Exactly. It’s nice that lately I’ve been asked the old questions less and less: What’s it like to kiss a girl? What I had always hoped for at the beginning of shooting is that I wouldn’t get asked those questions. No one’s asking Lucy Hale what it’s like to kiss Ian Harding. I really feel there’s been a change in the last year.
Glamour: And that’s a feat after only 6 seasons. Are you nervous for season 7 to be the end and to start a whole new chapter?
SM: I’m not going to say anything is the end! Never say never… You never know what could happen in Rosewood. Although that’s what was said, I don’t know if that’s really going to be the ending. When it does come to an end, I’ll be extremely upset. Counting down the episodes is going to be insane—I’ve spent my twenties on this show.
Glamour: And we have to ask: Can you tell me something you’ve never told anyone about PLL—whether that’s an inside joke on set or who you think the new A is?
SM: To be honest, I think I gave up on asking who A was a long time ago. Every time I think it’s one person, it’s not. If I were to make assumptions now, I think it has to be one of the parents. That’s my guess.

Traditionally, the Marc Jacobs show at New York Fashion Week is the finale of a jam-packed schedule of shows, presentations, street style moments, and breaking runway news. It's New York's way of passing the torch to London, as the fall 2016 collections continue across the pond. And, as farewell parties require, Jacobs' show rarely disappoints. Between the staging, soundtrack, and—of course—the clothing, Marc Jacobs is a can't-miss each season.
As we bid adieu to New York and travel on to London, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks that follow, let's take a deep dive into Marc Jacob's incredible show. We've rounded up the can't miss moments right here.
The calm before the storm. It's Marc Jacobs' stark white set before the guests arrive.

Anna Wintour sat front row with daughter Bee Shaffer, showing her Hillary Clinton support in the T-shirt Jacobs designed for the campaign.
Other celebs sitting front row included Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sofia Coppola, and Emily Ratajkowski.
The soundtrack was near-silence, with only xylophone-like bells ringing every few moments.
A video posted by Eva Chen (@evachen212) on Feb 18, 2016 at 3:24pm PST
The silhouettes were oversized, for the most part: the collection was full of full mid-length skirts, coats with exaggerated shoulder shapes, and sleeves that hung well past models' fingers. In deep black, purple, and green hues; contrasted by the pale faces and dark lips of each model; the collection was certainly gothic-inspired.
With a ghostly feeling, attendees were transported to a Beetlejuice-Inspired world full of feathers, leather, and lace—all expertly crafted into everything from evening dresses to sweatshirts. Other highlights included giant neck-bows, embellished cropped jackets, and perfectly tailored wide-leg trousers.
The shoes were Lady Gaga-esque platform heels, which seemed only appropriate as the singer walked in the show! (More on that later...) Models were cast with specific attention to their ability to walk in these truly head-turning creations.
Lady Gaga walked like a pro in an oversized coat and green blouse, sporting blonde hair and makeup that reminded us of her David Bowie tribute at the Grammy's.
Gaga and Kendall Jenner closed the show, side-by-side.

If there is ever a runway season that brings with it Oscar-worthy gowns, it's couture. And, as it just so happens, the spring couture collections debut right in the middle of awards season—truly jaw dropping gowns ripe for the picking for the most glamorous of the Hollywood set. How's that for convenience?
Across the board, the nominees are hard hitters in the fashion world, from Cate Blanchett's classic Hollywood glamour to Saoirse Ronan's youthful style; Jennifer Lawrence's penchant for red carpet princess moments and Rooney Mara's love of edgy black gowns. One thing's for sure: we can't wait to see what these stylish nominees choose this year—and, as we anticipate the glamour of the Oscars, we have our fingers crossed that we see at least a few of the incredible couture gowns of the season!
Armani Privée put an edgy spin on a pastel gown with deep black embellishment that seems to drip down from the bodice, revealing soft purple silk below.
This gold Valentino gown practically screams Oscars, with its metallic gold hue, reminiscent of the award itself.
Oscar night is an evening to pull out all the stops when it comes to fashion: The bigger the better. In red-carpet-worthy style, Giambattista Valli created a bright red dress of cascading tulle that we hope makes an appearance at the awards.
Evening glamour hit it big in Givenchy's sequin-studded couture collection this season. Our favorite Oscar night choice? A long-sleeved gown in deep purple metallic, with a subtle skin-revealing cutout in front.
For the girl looking for her princess moment, Elie Saab's collection is hard to beat. We're particularly in love with this high-neck, sleeveless beaded gown, nipped in at the waist by a metallic belt.
Our fingers are crossed that at least one nominee steps onto the carpet, dripping with old Hollywood glamour. And, honestly, what better way to do that than in Chanel haute couture?
