Selfless Selfies: Celebs Donate Disposable Cameras for a Good Cause

Make room next to Nana’s photo on the fireplace. MIX NYC, a nonprofit media-arts organization, is auctioning off 150 celeb-signed disposable cameras full of never-before-seen personal photos taken by actors, photographers, directors, and models. (Yes, really.) And with quirky contributors like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Cera, James Franco, Julie Bowen, and Rider Strong, frame-worthy gems are pretty much guaranteed.

As for all of us non-bidders? Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the winners share their spoils online.

Breakfast with Bee Shaffer: Teen Vogue Catches Up with Anna Wintour’s Daughter

Lets just be honest. After watching The Devil Wears Prada and The September Issue, it’s hard to believe editrix Anna Wintour is a mom. But – she is. And now, thanks to her daughter Bee Shaffer’s new interview with Teen Vogue, we’re getting a glimpse at the product of her parenting skills. Below, Bee talks punctuality, efficiency, and why she chose not to follow in her mom’s fashion footsteps.

Today’s Wanderlust: The SPA Retreat in Jamaica

Calling all escape junkies. This travel eye candy might just inspire you to book the next flight to the tropics.Jamaica Vacations

The spot:

The SPA Retreat in Negril, Jamaica.

Why we love it: 

There is absolutely nothing generic about this adults-only escape – from the 18 handcrafted stone cottages you’ll call home base to the seawater pool and exotic grey cliffs. (And yes, you read that right, no kids.) 

On the to-do list: 

Order a cocktail at the poolside bar. Nap under a shaded cabana. Then take a ladder down to the ocean for some snorkeling in the property’s coral reef. After it all? Try sunset yoga or Pilates at the open-air SPA pavilion, followed by some cliffside farm-to-table dining

Ready to jet? Our The SPA Retreat – Jamaica Boutique opens Thursday, May 8, at 11AM ET.

Almost Like Being There: 2014 Met Gala Instagram Videos

Oh, shoot – looks like you couldn’t make it on Monday night. (Did you misplace your spare $25,000?) But let’s not dwell. We’ve discovered the next best thing to parading down that Met Gala red carpet yourself: this series of Instagram videos created by artist and Vine guru Ian Padgham for Vogue. Each video captures the larger-than-life event in piecemeal. A snippet of place settings here. A flash of organza there. A tour through the museum. All in ten precious seconds.

In short, we adore every fleeting moment. Watch here.

For the Love of Bey: The SNL Skit You Need to Watch

This past weekend, Saturday Night Live poked fun at the world’s (totally legitimate) Beyoncé obsession with a skit starring Andrew Garfield. In it, the actor “turns against his country” by uttering the unthinkable: “I’m not a huge fan of that ‘Drunk in Love’ song.” Enter: the Beygency, SNL's Matrix-esque crew dedicated to taking out Beyoncé dissenters with “Single Ladies” dance moves.

If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and press play. And let this be a warning to all Bey haters (if they even exist): The Beygency just might be headed your way.

Saved by the Cell: Pendant Promises to Rescue You From Bad Dates

So your Tinder date isn’t going all that great. The guy you thought was smart and worldly is, well, everything but – and now you’re trapped. You can’t just get up and leave, not without looking rude. Enter: the Guardian Angel pendant. Worn as necklace or a bracelet, the sterling silver piece is actually a receiver that triggers a fake phone call to your cell as soon as you press it. Which means you can get out of that date, pronto.

Emma Stone Lip Sync–Battles Jimmy Fallon (And We Can’t Stop Watching)

If you haven’t watched Emma Stone out–lip sync Jimmy Fallon on Monday’s The Tonight Show, you’re missing out. The redheaded actress went mic-to-mic with Fallon, lip-syncing to Blues Traveler’s “Hook,” followed by DJ Khaled’s 2010 hit “All I Do Is Win,” proving to be the TV host’s biggest competitor to date. Although Jimmy put on quite the performance with his interpretation of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” and Styx’s hit “Mr. Roboto,” he was no match for Emma’s impressive rap–lip syncing skills.

Don’t believe me? Do yourself a favor and press play (or, ahem, replay). Your Friday morning? It just got insanely more awesome. You’re welcome.
