    The News: Reading Rainbow Might Come Back?!
    This new Kickstarter lead by the series host LeVar Burton wants to bring back the childhood show, and he’s already got $1 million pledged! We’re personally all for it....and you? Get the scoop!

    The Look: Kate Moss for Calvin Klein
    I mean, where to even begin!? Kate Moss’ boundary-pushing CK One ads (featuring topless models and lots of makeouts) might be the first thing that pops into your head, and that’s understandable. But rather than grunge, I’m personally more about the clean, classic ’90s looks--think Moss’ other CK work, with spaghetti straps and slipdresses and side parts. Perfection.

    The Face: Stila’s Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
    The ’90s minimalist beauty look was the ideal complement to the clothing. In other words, totally clean and effortless. The best way to get this lit-from-within glow comes from Stila’s new BB Cream. The SPF formula is both illuminating and natural-looking, plus you can totally fake a full night’s sleep (even if that didn’t exactly happen...).

    The Inspiration: Jil Sander’s Campaigns
    Jil Sander campaigns need to get more credit. Not only do they embody the whole “less is more” attitude, these stark shots also present models in a different, more toned-down light. I especially love this one from 2006, where menswear-inspired suiting never looked so cool.

    The Song: “No Scrubs” by Bastille (TLC Cover)
    Bastille might not be ’90s, but the fact that this dude breathed a surprising new life into the classic hit is enough reason to have it on repeat. Bonus: you already know all the words!
