In need of new summer tunes? @devhynes 's latest mixtape clocks in at just under 30 minutes, but it retains the same laid-back charm of Hynes’s more proper releases (and it does boast features from the likes of @iamkelseylu , @toroymoi , @arca1000000 , and @tinashenow , to name just a few ).

Kabukicho: Tokyo’s red-light district, soaked in neon and populated by pay-by-the-hour love hotels, Yakuza-owned hostess bars, and countless vending machines depositing cans of Boss coffee to weary salarymen. Who would imagine that one of the city’s most influential boutiques might exist anywhere nearby? And yet, there it is: @the_foureyed , squirreled down an unassuming alleyway filled with those aforementioned hotels. “I wanted it to be a bit hidden when I opened it,” says Keisuke Fujita ( @fjt_ksk ), the happy-go-lucky shopkeeper and street style photographer who opened the store in late 2016. “I want people to feel special when they come to The Four-Eyed, like they’ve discovered something. It’s like treasure hunting.” Tap the link in our bio to learn more.
In the 2010s, the model—heretofore a major but mostly silent protagonist of the mode—ditched the egregious “walking clothes hanger” analogy, found her voice, advocated for her rights, and accrued her own powers independent of agent, casting director, or designer.

"Fashion is defined by change, not stasis," writes Vogue.com's Archive Editor Laird Borrelli-Persson ( @the_lbp ). "The past can inform the present, but a moto jacket, however fierce, does not a punk make. Past fashions dressed up as new are but costumes because they exist in a vacuum. The power of fashion—even its duty—is to mirror the world. It acquires meaning as it anticipates and reacts to current events and modes of living—and wearing."

On a trip to Oaxaca in southwestern Mexico, photographer @philipnix documented the vibrant colors and intricate, hand-crafted accessories that characterize Oaxaca’s regional style: the huipil-inspired dresses of the clay artisans, lavishly embellished with floral embroidery and lace trims; the traditional wedding garb of the young girls decked out in ornate, glimmering jewelry and silk ribbons tied through their long plaits; or even the master mezcal distiller surveying the latest batch of his smoky agave spirit, sporting a Mexican cowboy-style straw hat in white.

Progress today can hardly be quantified as linear, up-the-ladder stuff. It’s gyrating around whole new axes of celebrity and social media. Doors to the luxury-fashion fortress that didn’t even exist a decade ago are now being stepped through by female upstarts from everywhere in the digital age—including those who’ve credibly switched to fashion from acting and music careers: first the Olsen twins, then Victoria Beckham, and now Rihanna, the first black woman to have a label backed by LVMH.

Go behind the scenes of @devhynes 's new video for “Benzo,” which Hynes directed and just debuted. The visual is an unusually ornate affair for the artist, influenced by videos that Hynes saw on MTV growing up—he cites “Zero” by the Smashing Pumpkins in particular—and director Sofia Coppola, Queen Elizabeth, and Wagnerian operas. “Every video that I do, I’m always trying to see what I can pull off directing-wise,” Hynes said. “With this one, I was wondering if I could make a Blood Orange video that was pretty grounded in surrealness. I wanted to try to make one of those videos where this world exists only within this music video.” Tap the link in our bio to see more. Photographed by @lilygavin
Casting off its classic associations, today’s jeans are so packed with personality that putting on a new pair feels tantamount to slipping into a role, and @teyanataylor and @imanshumpert know a thing or two about that.

Today, President Trump attacked Democratic congresswomen via Twitter, saying that they should go back to “the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.” Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez ( @ocasio2018 ), who was born in New York City, continues to show us how it’s done—right from Capitol Hill.

“Every woman has a bra story, and they always think: Oh, my God, what’s wrong with me? My body’s so weird. It’s never just you! It’s just, until recently, that’s how bra-shopping made you feel—that you were supposed to be some other way. Now, finally, that’s changed,” says @heidi A crop of new, minimalist lingerie brands aren’t offering a silhouette proposition—they provide a range of styles meant to enhance women’s genetically determined breasts rather than sculpt them to match a culturally ordained ideal.

August cover star @arianagrande grew up in Boca Raton, Florida, in a gated community of expensive and lushly planted Mediterranean-style homes. Her mother, @joangrande , Brooklyn-born and Barnard-educated, owns a business selling marine communications equipment; her father, Edward Butera, is a graphic designer. The couple divorced when Grande was eight. Ariana grew up in character, in a household that relished characters. The theme of her third birthday party was Jaws. She loved to run around the house in a Jason mask, and at Halloween, Joan liked to buy animal organs and leave them floating in dishes. “My family is eccentric and weird and loud and Italian,” Grande says. “There was always this fascination with the macabre. My mom is goth. Her whole wardrobe is modeled after Cersei Lannister’s. I’m not kidding. I’m like, ‘Mom, why are you wearing epaulets? It’s Thanksgiving.’ ” Tap the link in our bio to read the full cover story. Photographed by #AnnieLeibovitz , styled by @tonnegood , written by @robertjhaskell , Vogue, August 2019.
Another #Wimbledon will draw to a close tomorrow—how quickly those two weeks fly by! From Simona Halep’s first Wimbledon title win, wunderkind Cori Gauff’s ( @cocogauff ) star-making first-round triumph over Venus Williams, to Andy Murray’s victorious return to form in the mixed doubles (with Serena Williams, no less! ) after major hip surgery, Wimbledon 2019 continues to amaze.

At least 11 black trans women have been killed in the United States in 2019 alone. Layleen Cubilette-Polanco Xtravaganza's death occurred during New York City’s biggest #Pride month celebration ever, and against a backdrop of violence and neglect at Rikers Island. Her passing has not only touched her family and the ballroom community of which she was a part, but has contributed to national outrage over the mistreatment and abuse of trans women of color. A month later, in New York, Layleen’s older sister, Melania Brown, those who loved Layleen, and some who did not know her at all are trying to ensure her life—and death—are remembered; tap the link in our bio to read how they are mourning and organizing.
When ballerina @IsabellaBoylston gets ready for a transformation, it's for one that will be seen by thousands under the bright lights at Lincoln Center. Taking center stage to dance the title role in the classical ballet, Swan Lake, the @abtofficial principal dancer is marking her seventh time starring in the iconic role. The Black Swan calls for maximum drama–"it's not really your ideal daytime look"–and multiple layers of coverage.

“My relationship to beauty has always been a bit confused,” admits new @diormakeup ambassador @jorjasmith_ “I didn’t ever think I’d be the face of anything,” says the 22-year-old, who grew up in Walsall, West Midlands, with a British mother and a father of Jamaican descent. “At school, the majority of the girls were white and slim with long hair, so that’s what I wanted to look like.” Learning to embrace her looks, however—while nurturing a raw talent that saw her write her first song when she was just 11 years old—has helped the London-based singer earn international attention.

“We have pink hair and purple hair. We have tattoos and dreadlocks. We got white girls and black girls and everything in between; straight girls and gay girls,” began @mrapinoe on a podium overlooking the steps of New York’s City Hall and Bowling Green park. Rapinoe was extolling the virtues of her teammates on the U.S. women’s national team, but she could have been talking about the diversity of the crowd that had squeezed into Lower Manhattan just to get a glimpse of their soccer heroines. People of all ages, genders, and nationalities were squished and jostling about Broadway to cheer on the Women’s World Cup’s winningest team.

The numbers don’t lie. The 2019 @uswnt is the only team to win four Women’s World Cup titles. They are the only team to win 12 consecutive World Cup matches. The only team to score 26 goals in a World Cup Final, to win a game by the highest margin of victory. They have set enough records— @carlilloyd is the only player to score in six consecutive games, @alexmorgan13 has scored the most goals in a single match—that it seems almost silly to list them. It was obvious from the very start that the 2019 Women’s World Cup team is peerless. Tap the link in our bio to see more from the U.S. Women’s National Team Ticker-Tape Parade in New York.

For a woman who recently turned 26 and is enjoying the most successful chapter of her career, it has also been a spectacularly, and publicly, brutal couple of years for @arianagrande “I’m a person who’s been through a lot and doesn’t know what to say about any of it to myself, let alone the world. I see myself onstage as this perfectly polished, great-at-my-job entertainer, and then in situations like this I’m just this little basket-case puddle of figuring it out.” She laughs through her sniffles. “I have to be the luckiest girl in the world, and the unluckiest, for sure. I’m walking this fine line between healing myself and not letting the things that I’ve gone through be picked at before I’m ready, and also celebrating the beautiful things that have happened in my life and not feeling scared that they’ll be taken away from me because trauma tells me that they will be, you know what I mean?” Read the full August cover story in the link in our bio.

August cover star @arianagrande is one of the world’s biggest pop stars, and through her soul-bearing music, often lets us all in on her emotions, her thoughts, and her relationships. Her new cover video featuring “In My Head,” one of the most revealing, intimate songs from her February release Thank U, Next, takes this confessional tendency literally, as Grande dances, shoulder-pops, poses, and struts around inside the white room of her own mind.
