Kylie Jenner‘s social media kontent is an art form. She could teach a course on selfie taking and lipkit swatching. Plus, she knows the exact pose for any outfit — whether it’s a new pair of Pumas or a sexy spandex dress. And while we believe Kylie has a natural-born gift for serving face to the camera, she’s also worked with some extremely talented photographers, like Sasha Samsonova.

Basically, Kylie and Sasha are a match made in Instagram heaven. If you’re not yet familiar with the photographer and film producer, stop everything, follow her on all her social media channels, and then continue reading. She’s the person behind the lens for almost all of Kylie’s “impromptu” photo shoots and “secret” projects. She’s also shot for high-fashion publications across the globe and — wait for it — she’s only 25.

We caught up with the rising star to find out how she entered the KarJenner universe, her best tips for staging our own Instagram shoots and where she plans to be in 10 years. Read More

Adriana Lima Thinks You Should Put Perfume in Your Belly Button (and More Supermodel Secrets)

If it seems that sometimes supermodels just know things the rest of us don’t, well, it’s because they have had years to travel the world gaining tips on how to pose in a bikini, apply foundation perfectly and walk into a wind machine from the best pros in the business. But luckily, they aren’t stingy with their information — and occasionally they’ll divulge a piece of information that could totally change the game for you. This Adriana Lima fragrance tip might be just one such moment.

“I like to apply my fragrance to my hair, on my belly button, behind my ears and behind my knee — and then one spritz of fragrance on my clothes,” Lima told The Coveteur at an event celebrating the launch of the new Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence scent (for which she’s the brand ambassador). “I don’t know why, but I like to put it in my belly button! It’s like one, two, three, I divide my body in three,” she says, explaining that she creates horizontal “zones” for scent application. “I think it’s more No. 3 than anything.”

Kim Kardashian loves nothing more than the challenge of making an impossible trend her new go-to aesthetic. At this point, a fully sheer ensemble is basically her pajamas, nude bodysuits are her outfit de rigueur, and if her Thursday night dining companion, Larsa Pippen, is any indication, the reality star has inexplicably, successfully made bicycle shorts happen.

Well, she may have just found it with her latest outfit that incorporates a touch of waist-training into her every day style, for a look we’ve gone ahead and termed advanced lampshading.

Ageless Beauty Angela Bassett, 57, Says She's 'Not Impervious' to Getting Older

If there is a fountain of youth, we bet that it’s located in Angela Bassett’s backyard. After all, over the last few years the American Horror Story actress has pulled off crop-tops and corsets better than most women half her age. Add in her flawless skin and boom: She’s a bonafide ageless beauty in our eyes. But the actress admits to PeopleStyle that the aging process has not evaded her — and shares all her secrets for staying at the top of her game.

At 57 years old, Angela Bassett might have the body of a goddess, but it turns out she’s very much like us mortals.

“Even though people tell me I’m impervious to aging, I’m not,” says Bassett. “The scale isn’t going down the way it used to. It used to be easier, even as much as a year ago.”

And though the realization initially came as a “shock,” Bassett is taking the change in stride. “We check ourselves out in the mirror every day, we see the changes but you have to just do the best for yourself more often than not.”

For the actress, that means trying to hit the gym as often as she can in between filming, raising her twins with husband Courtney B. Vance and her new baby — a skin care line she just launched with her dermatologist and friend Dr. Barbara Sturm.

“If I can work out for 30 minutes, I feel good. Sometimes I can’t, but [I like] to think, ‘Who can’t do that?’ My philosophy is: Do the best you can and do something that you enjoy. For me, I like free weights.”

Bassett’s also big on playing up her best assets, collaborating with her glam team to ensure she always feels comfortable before gracing the red carpet.

“I’ll say to my glam team, ‘I have great arms, you might want to show that!’ I believe we all have something—great legs, beautiful hair—so find your something, be proud of it, and accentuate it.”

When it comes to her seeming perfect complexion, Bassett says her dedication to skin started in her teens when her mother would take her to a dermatologist every six weeks. “My mother and her siblings had a lot of challenges with her skin — and she did not want that for me,” she says.

Decades later, Bassett is now the proud co-creator and co-owner of a skincare line. The five-piece Dr. Barbara Sturm & Angela Bassett Skin of Color collection launched this month at Harrods and on Dr. Sturm’s website, addresses “hyperpigmentation and inflammation, which skin of color is more prone to,” says Sturm, adding, “There’s luxury makeup for skin of color, but there’s no luxury skin care line. It’s surprising because if you do a little research you see that there should be.”

Sturm, who has a namesake, celeb-loved skin care line, says this collaboration was a labor of love for them both — and they already have plans to expand. “We want to make people who can’t afford our luxury line right now have one in the future, too.”
