Sorry, we’ve been staring at Prince George’s chunky little legs all morning. Even Kate Middleton called him a “very podgy baby” this week (a posh way of saying pudgy, really) and who are we to disagree? That kid has adorable on lock! Which is probably why yesterday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their last day in New Zealand away from the public, doing their own thing with Baby George. However, today the royal tour is back on, and with it, two new looks from Kate Middleton. Read more »

These babies are just enough raver to satisfy my ’90s nostalgia need, with the kind of chunky platform action to ensure that long summertime walks are possible. For those who are freaked by a completely see-through strap, the teeny metallic flecks should accent your feet with an otherworldly edge.

I feel like most serums I come across are meant for anti-aging purposes. Does anything exist for acne-prone skin?
Anti-aging skincare accounts for a significant proportion of the products available on the market, and we’re always told it’s never too early to start exploring the options available to us. However, when you’re preoccupied with acne concerns, it can seem like every advanced product out there is for anti-aging. Not so! Estée Lauder Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum ($64, esteelauder.ca) will become a mainstay in your skincare routine because in addition to refining pores, calming skin and reducing redness thanks to algae and caffeine, it will use salicylic acid to stop breakout cycles from reoccurring. The serum works in a gentle way on a daily basis, giving you more even and balanced skin with continued use. Read more »
Ah, the Canadian tuxedo. Some love it and wear it well, others live in constant fear of looking like Britney and Justin when doing an all-demin look. Well, this week the Style Panel is all about converting any Canadian tuxedo naysayers into advocates for the look. The number one tip for trying all-denim is to make sure there’s some colour mixing going on. If you’re wearing dark jeans, pair it with a light-wash chambray shirt. And should you think this is a weekend-only look, think again: sharp tailoring and modern silhouettes can make all over denim a welcome mid-week style.

In this new shopping column, our editors share the daily must-haves they’re lusting for IRL.
Dry shampoo is a must when you colour your hair as often as I do (the less you reach for actual shampoo, the better!) but not all are created equal. Inexpensive drugstore brands get the job done, sure, but when you’re in the mood to splurge, René Furterer should be your go-to. It’s softly scented—somewhere between a luxe fragrance and essential oil—so you’ll never feel overpowered by product. Most important, however, is how well this baby works. Grease? Gone. Volume? Enhanced. Sticky, gritty texture? Nope. I’m tempted to call it the Cadillac of dry shampoos.

Nail art’s not quite dead, but the baroque period is definitely over, as these five fresh-from-the-runways trends show. We’re in a minimalist phase, embracing subtle detailing, a more subdued palette and considerably less sparkle.
