All Anyone Wants for Christmas Is a Covid Test

When Amir Blumenfeld was deciding what to buy for a Secret Santa gift exchange, he landed on something practical: an at-home Covid-19 testing kit. “What better gift is there than peace of mind?” Mr. Blumenfeld, a 38-year-old comedian, wrote in a direct message on Twitter.

At the heart of his quip was an urgent concern: Coronavirus cases are once again rising around the United States as the Delta variant has given way to Omicron, a highly contagious form of the virus. The surge has fueled demand for Covid tests ahead of the Christmas holiday as families seek ways to gather

Let’s Look Back on 2021, When We Couldn’t Stop Looking Back

I wonder if something like the opposite is happening now: The allure of presentism is causing people to romanticize contemporary perspectives at the expense of an excessively vilified past. It’s uncomfortable to dwell in gray areas, to admit imperfections, to acknowledge blind spots — better to have a 100-minute documentary or four-part podcast to allow us to tidily “reconsider” something that we got wrong the first time around, so we never have to think too hard about it again.

But to believe the linear, one-dimensional narrative that Woodstock ’99 or misogynistic media coverage of Britney Spears can only be visible …

Tiny Love Stories: ‘Nobody Knows I’m a Lesbian’

The year our father left, I’d thrash around on my big sister’s shaggy blue carpet at bedtime, pretending I’d fallen overboard. Melanie would hoist me into the lower bunk, singing as I dozed off. Our rescue game turned real one winter’s day at the bus stop. I bent to pack a snowball. When I stood — smack! — I was hit in the face by Melanie’s own icy projectile. Stunned, I began running, then fainted. Melanie started mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and then carried me home. Our father never returned. But my sister is still here, healing life’s harshest

The Year of Balenciaga

Demna Gvasalia and I meet in the metaverse, in a glassed-in conference room in an unnamed city. Though the buildings suggest Singapore by way of the Jetsons.

“This is kind of trippy,” said the avatar otherwise known as the creative director of Balenciaga, upon materializing in the room. “What do I have on? What kind of jacket? I bet it’s not oversized.”

He was wearing a black warm-up jacket and black T-shirt, with a silver chain around his neck, gold hoops in both ears, a black baseball cap and a five o’clock shadow. He looked, in other words, a lot

Lori Harvey Stuns at the 2021 Miss Universe Pageant Wearing Dolce and Gabbana Crystal Embellished Gown

The Harveys were on the scene at this year’s 70th annual Miss Universe Pageant where Lori Harvey served as a judge and Steve Harvey posed as the host once again. As a judge, Lori Harvey channeled her own Miss Universe energy with her show-stopping crystal-adorned dress.

Lori Harvey wore an archival Dolce and Gabbana crystal-embellished gown, styled by Maeve Reilly. The gown hugs the body with dazzling details including crystallized spaghetti straps which form a V-detail on the back matched with allover crystal embroidery. The dress was paired with stud earrings and classic body waves.

The 13 Most Important Fashion Shows of 2021

There was a sense, before the pandemic, that Alessandro Michele had fully evolved the look of Gucci—that his aesthetic was so well-established that Gucci was basically locked into producing eternal riffs on the rock ‘n roller magpie look. For the brand’s 100th anniversary show, however, Michele brought a bizarro new sophistication to his clothes, reworking a number of the brand’s classics, like Tom Ford’s velvet tux, into his own pagoda-shouldered masterpiece. The accompanying film was also a sweet but unsentimental look at how Michele’s Gucci kickstarted the gender-fluid fashion revolution. And on top of all that, Michele staged what he …

LaChanze, at Home in ‘The Color Purple’ House

“The Color Purple” house — that’s how the actor LaChanze refers to her five-bedroom home in lower Westchester County, N.Y. This has nothing to do with the exterior (it’s gray) or the interior (plum, lavender, lilac, fuchsia, mulberry and violet are underrepresented).

But it has everything to do with LaChanze’s Tony-winning performance in the 2005 musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s celebrated novel. “Being in ‘The Color Purple’ was how I was able to buy the house,” said LaChanze, who is currently starring in the limited-run Broadway production — through Jan. 9 — of Alice Childress’s 1955 comedy-drama “Trouble in Mind.”
