    The News: We’re (Still) Obsessing Over Lea Seydoux’s New Trailer

    Yes, we know. It’s been out for a few days, but you guys--we still can’t stop watching the trailer for Lea Seydoux’s new movie Yves Saint Laurent. The French-language flick is one of two YSL-inspired films coming out this summer, and it’s a heady mix of sex, fashion, and tons of drama. Oh, and it’s unauthorized by the French fashion you know the scandal factor will be high. Watch (or rewatch!) the trailer below.

    The Look: Être Cécile Pre-Spring 2015

    If the fashion world were like high school (which, let’s be real, it totally is), this London-based label would be a new kind of cool lunch table. It wouldn’t be the most popular kids who blindly follow the trends. It wouldn’t be the overly artsy clique or the jock crew. Instead, it’s a rad juxtaposition of everything else, made up of well-groomed rebels who wear prim sweaters topped off with tons of ’tude. Just look at the lookbook for proof and get ready to think of your outfits--and the school caf--in a totally fresh light.

    The Face: Rimmel London Scandal’Eyes Thick and Thin Eyeliner

    Because every badass needs some drama, get it the easiest way possible with this two-in-one pen. You can make your swoop thick or thin in two seconds flat.

    The Inspiration: Joan Baez

    The ’60s music icon wasn’t only a folk singer, peace activist, and Bob Dylan’s former love--she had a killer style and an all-natural beauty look. Her toned-down vibe is about as far away from the overdone costumes and robotic dance moves that flood pop today, which makes it all the more appealing. And in a way, weirdly rebellious.

    The Song: “Just Once” by Shura

    Finally, our favorite dreamy electro-pop angel is back! We first introduced you to Shura way back in the spring when her breakout jam “Touch” burst onto the blogosphere in a tornado of glitter. The U.K. singer and producer’s latest, “Just Once,” is another sublime breakup song that somehow isn’t depressing one bit. Chalk it up to her airy vocals or synth-driven melody, but heartbreak sounds pretty damn sweet.
