    Today is...

    4/20, but you probably already knew that.

    News of the Day:

    + Future Islands released their Record Store Day single this weekend. Check out “The Chase” over at BBC.

    + Have you ever wondered what the first movies that made Oprah Winfrey, Daniel Radcliffe, and Lupita Nyong’o cry were? Luckily for you, Academy Originals found out. Watch below.

    + ICYMI, Balenciaga accidentally listed some of its bags on its website for under $200 at the end of last week.

    + Rebecca Minkoff’s semi-annual sample sale starts today in New York and Los Angeles. Major score.

    + After months of #freethenipple posts and pleas, Instagram has finally updated its nudity policy—kinda. In reality, they just clarified it: “We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.” So, some nipples are okay—just not all?

    Deal of the Day:

    Asos’ sale just got way more insane. You can find summer dresses, shoes, and more for up to 70% off.

    Advice of the Day:

    “I’ve found that anybody who takes what they’re doing seriously or seems to be a caring person gets called an old soul. And it’s not a negative thing to say, but it’s also not 100 percent accurate. I might not be running around being insane, but I’m also a 21-year-old who likes to be silly. Just because I don’t flaunt those parts of my life doesn’t mean I don’t do some of that privately, you know what I mean?” - Dakota Fanning
