As principal designer of Denniston and with a career spanning more than four decades, Gathy's legendary visionary has been behind many of the most iconic luxury hotels, resorts and destinations around the globe.

A shampoo provides a refreshing aroma in the shower, but even the most potent one doesn’t linger all day. Similarly, a liberal coating of a scented dry shampoo won’t produce a long-lasting fragrance. It’s tempting to add a squirt of perfume to hair, but the high concentration of alcohol in most formulas can dry out tresses — and no one wants to sacrifice hydrated, healthy hair for scent, no matter how intoxicating. The solution? Hair perfume.
Not to be confused with hairsprays or texturizers, hair perfumes produce a refreshing scent, but contain a lower concentration of alcohol — or sometimes none at all. Additionally, hair mists can actually improve the texture and appearance of hair. Many are formulated with oils [...]

It seems like Savile Row-inspired fabrics come down the fall runways every year. (What typically used to be dubbed “menswear” we’ll just call suiting going forward because, well, 2017.)

And it appears the street style set has taken the bait. So get ready: if the fashion insider crowd is any indication, this season promises to be a tailored one.
Alexander Wang’s interpretation of the trend came in several forms, all mixed with his signature shot of edge (i.e., black leather accents). Models were sent out in everything from glen plaid [...]
Whether you are a morning bird or a night owl, the idea of finishing your workouts first thing in the morning and having the rest of the day to focus on other important tasks can sound like a tempting proposition.

If you are among those people who would like to have an easier time waking up early to work out, we’ve got just the thing for you!

If there’s one thing we know off-duty celebrities (and their stylists) are good at, it’s dressing for their body type. When there’s a chance (or a guarantee) of being photographed every time you leave your house, it’s only natural to want to make sure you look your best from every angle.
So, which style is right for you? While all four styles are on-trend for summer (and into the fall), we’d recommend starting with a cut that’s suited to flatter your best features. Those with boyish figures can add curves with an A-line mini a la Alexa Chung, while women with curvier frames can nail that hourglass look in a fitted pencil skirt (with plenty of stretch), like [...]
Matcha tea has been touted as a superfood because it’s high in antioxidants and vitamins. But most who drink it have a simpler mission: It’s their morning cuppa.
A majority of Americans drink at least one caffeinated beverage per day, but the side effects can be unpleasant. Vandana Sheth, a registered dietician for 18 years, said many of her clients want a morning jolt but do not like the headaches, racing heart and sweaty palms that go along with several cups of coffee.
For these people, she often recommends trying matcha, which can help wake you up without the jitters.
Matcha is green tea leaves crushed into a fine, electric green powder. Whisk the powder into warm or hot water, [...]
It's ironic that nailing the "natural" look often takes a crazy amount of time and products. Luckily, that doesn't have to be the case. Bobbi Brown makeup artist Cassandra Garcia says that one of Bobbi's biggest mottos is that every woman wants to look like themselves—just more beautiful and confident. That seemed to the goal on an episode of Good Morning America last week when Bobbi gave three breast cancer survivors some well-deserved makeovers to bring out their natural beauty.
Pick the right base
You want something that gives enough coverage without totally covering you up. Bobbi always says that she doesn't want to see foundation and concealer, she wants to see skin, says Garcia. Look for oil-free products [...]
