Hunter Schafer is one of those celebrities that seemingly popped up out of nowhere. In 2019, she made her acting debut as Jules in the hit HBO show Euphoria, and suddenly, she was everywhere. But she didn’t actually just appear over night, Schafer actually cut her teeth in the modeling world long before she got into acting. That might be why, by the time she started hitting red carpets to promote her new projects, she already had her personal style completely figured out. Schafer has never played by the rules when it comes to dressing for events. She loves to take risks, which is why she usually gravitates toward more out-of-the-box designers like Rick Owens and Daniel Roseberry of Schiaparelli. Of course, her ambassadorship with Prada has also resulted in some best dressed list placements. She is constantly stepping out in custom looks from the house, many of which are inspired by vintage creations. Clearly, Schafer has an eye for fashion, which means every time she appears on the red carpet, it is an absolute delight. Below, we’re looking back at her short time in the spotlight, and all of the great looks she has already managed to squeeze in so far.

Kyoto, the Japanese city often referred to as the country’s cultural capital, is renowned for its historic temples, its unique gardens—and its manhole covers. Unlike most sewage covers across the globe, Japan’s manhole lids are an unusual canvas for original artwork. Fans of the elaborately decorated covers, a group known as “drainspotters” or “manholers,” can now get their hands on three historic models, as Kyoto’s municipal government is, for the first time, offering up the covers to the public.

The intricate lids have long been a source of revenue for Japan’s sewer system and a tourism draw. In response to rising interest in the covers as a collectible item, Kyoto is now putting three different obsolete versions, manufactured in 1978, 1981 and 1990, up for sale, according to The Mainichi Shimbun. While new maintenance hole lids typically cost around 60,000 yen ($400), the city’s municipal government will sell the covers for only 5,500 yen ($37) each.

The iron lids, which weigh up to 90 kg, feature designs specific to Kyoto. One displays a pattern of “court carriage” wheels, while the others show the city’s emblem at the center. As the covers have been in use for more than 30 years, they also exhibit signs of wear.

Why does Japan have such intricate manhole covers?

Custom manhole designs can be found in 95 percent of Japan’s municipalities and often contain references to the specific region’s history and culture. Even Kyoto University has its own sewage cover, complete with the institution’s abbreviation in Japanese. Hello Kitty designs are on manholes across Tama City, while Osaka’s include depictions of its famous castle. And in Hiroshima, the city’s baseball team has been honored on

It’s just shy of 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26, and Dior’s Spring/Summer 2024 show is moments from claiming the Paris Fashion Week stage. The street outside the venue is packed with fans, and a black BMW 7 Series’ slow approach incites their feverish cheers. BLACKPINK’s Jisoo emerges from the vehicle with a four-man security detail, wearing the House’s latest designs and waving like a royal to the sea of unfamiliar faces that have been waiting just to catch a glimpse of her brisk excursion to the door from behind a comfortably-distanced barricade. This appearance, coupled with her front-row attendance at the show, garnered $1.6 million USD worth of media impact value (MIV), or online visibility. The echo mentions, or “buzz” surrounding her presence, added an extra $6.5 million USD to the total, according to online data platform Launchmetrics. In fact, Jisoo’s attendance at the Dior show alone earned more MIV than 86% of brands showcasing at the biannual fashion affair.

K-pop is this decade’s international music supernova: as it exploded from Seoul to the world, groups like BTS and BLACKPINK have corralled fandoms that level the likes of those for Beyoncé and Taylor Swift while smashing worldwide release charts and effortlessly selling out stadium tours. At first, the fashion industry was slow to welcome the South Korean stars into its notoriously exclusive circle (BTS only attended their first fashion show for Louis Vuitton in 2021, despite having debuted in 2013 and earned several No. 1 hits in the years prior), but once their inclusion was proven unprecedentedly valuable, the show invites, collaborations and ambassadorships came flowing in abundance.

In the last year alone, Cartier named BTS’ Kim Taehyung (otherwise known as V) its newest global ambassador; Loewe drafted NCT’s Taeyong; Prada enlisted all seven members of ENHYPEN; Valentino signed

ICYMI: Schoolcore, a trending subdivision of preppy style, is having a moment. Popularized by celebrities, influencers, and fashion brands — Thom Browne, Chopova Lowena, Miu Miu, etc. — the uniform (quite literally) for this youthful aesthetic is comprised of a few key staples, namely, dress shirts, blazers, and plaid skirts. Still, the look is at its best when it veers slightly off course. That may look like swapping out loafers for combat boots or putting on a graphic tee in lieu of a button-down — but the variations don’t end there.

We caught up with fashion influencers Cara Lovello, Summer Rachel Warren, and Mercedes Gonzalez Mayo, who shared their favorite ways to wear a school girl outfit today. If you ask us, between HBO Max’s Gossip Girl and movies like 2022’s Do Revenge, there may be no better time than now to attempt this trend (that is, if you haven’t already). Ready to incorporate Britney Spears’s “Baby One More Time” vibes into your wardrobe?

Keep reading for 11 school girl outfit ideas, plus product recommendations and styling tips straight from fashion insiders.

Long socks have become an essential part of the preppy look, whether they’re crew length or knee-high. While they’re most often paired with loafers and babydoll shoes, we’re partial to these ballet flats, which give the popular aesthetic a refreshing update.

If you’re hoping for a more casual feel with an Indie Sleaze spin, trade your standard button-down for a graphic tee instead. This quick switch is an easy yet effective way to get your school girl outfit to stand out among the crowd.

Of all the aesthetics Instagram has made famous, “cottagecore” is probably one of our favorites. There’s something about the voluminous silhouettes, soft floral patterns, and earth tones that feel oh-so-dreamy — plus, a tad escapist, too — and honestly, we can’t get enough. Although the trend naturally leans conservative, it can be interpreted in myriad ways.

For instance, celebs and fashion influencers are stepping out in cottagecore styles that are way less Little House on the Prairie and far more risqué. Has your fashion antennae perked up yet? We hope so because the options are endless, from peasant blouses to straw accessories. So, if you’re after a slice of bucolic life à la whimsical style of dress, you’ve come to the right place.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favorite cottagecore outfits that bring Victorian-era-inspired romance to the 21st century (thanks, Bridgerton).

If you’re worried that your cottagecore style will look too matronly, don’t. This sheer lace number with tapered sleeves gets a touch of sophistication with the help of nothing more than a black belt and boots.

Wear a Dress Over Pants

Although your simple puff sleeve dress can be worn on its own and nail cottagecore without even trying, consider a slight variation. Add your dress over your jeans and land a super on-trend style without all the effort. For a pop of color and preppy flair, layer a sweater or jacket over your shoulders.

Throw on a Vest

Prairie blouses are the pinnacle of cottagecore, but if you want to add a touch of personality to the otherwise sweet and innocent look, add a vest. Care to go a bit more sultry? Try a corset to accentuate

While Baroness Hallett has returned to the media spotlight in order to spearhead the UK Covid-19 Inquiry.

Discover the complete lineup of extraordinary leaders and luminaries shaping today’s and tomorrow’s Britain.

Naga Munchetty, broadcaster

Naga Munchetty, the journalist renowned for her work on BBC Breakfast and Radio 5 Live, is not easily rattled. With a track record of delivering live reports on major events ranging from the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II to the apprehension of Saddam Hussein, she has demonstrated unwavering composure.

However, when confronted with the prospect of sharing her own distressing encounters with adenomyosis, a gynaecological health condition, she admits to feeling substantial nervousness. Despite these apprehensions, at 48 years old, she pressed forward with determination.

Munchetty embarked on the creation of a radio show that intimately chronicled her personal battle with the painful ailment, a condition estimated to affect one in 10 women but is plagued by obscurity, with minimal references

Jared Leto cosplayed Karl Lagerfeld’s cat, Choupette, at the 2023 Met Gala.

The “House of Gucci” star made his fifth appearance in a full fur suit, dressing as the late designer’s beloved cat Monday evening, themed to honor the legacy of Lagerfeld.

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman — who is set to star in and produce a biopic of the late Chanel fashion designer — eventually removed the detachable head and was all smiles as he displayed the eerily-realistic costume of Lagerfeld’s famous Birman cat.

Chouppette was originally rumored to be making her own Met Gala debut but ultimately stayed home.

Leto, 51, later changed into a black ensemble, featuring a silver neckline. He paired the look with a black cape that showcased white shoulder pads.

The multi-hyphenate wasn’t the only star to hit the carpet as the beloved feline.
