Sia’s bleach-blonde wig is generally more recognizable than her face. But recently, the very private “Chandelier” songstress ditched her usual garb and smiled for the cameras.

Now, this reveal is a big deal. While other celebs post selfies and clamor for screen time, Sia has publicly declared her desire to avoid fame. Instead, the singer frequently performs with her back to the audience and hides her face during interviews.

We totally respect her wishes for anonymity. But if ditching the wig means more topknot buns like the one she flaunted publicly, we’re all for it.

This spring, the LWD (little white dress) is poised to be much more than simply a wedding staple. Just look to this Diane von Furstenberg sheer black-and-white lace number that is anything but bridal. Then, channel the combo from head-to-toe with these four monochrome must-haves.

Most Coveted

  1. Cameo Dress. The open racer-style back combined with black stripes along the hemline give this LWD a modern silhouette.
  2. R.J. Graziano Charm Bracelets. Look to these sweet pearl beads and locket charms for a touch of white in your wrist stack.
  3. Chanel Vintage Flap Bag. Subtle cross-stitching and black leather trim are chic updates to this classic carryall.
  4. JOIE Leather Sandal. The always-flattering ankle-strap sandal kicks it up a notch with colorblocking and a snakeskin-embossed finish.

For hat hair: Tie a silk scarf underneath that snug beanie. The fluid fabric minimizes flyaway-causing friction and static. Your tresses will thank you upon taking it off.

For air-drying curls: Don’t step into the freezing cold with wet locks. Style curly hair into four loose buns to dry overnight. Put one on each side of your head, twisting the bun away from your face. Then wrap two more on the crown of your head.

For split ends: Mix three tablespoons olive oil with two tablespoons raw honey for a nourishing hair mask. Apply post-shampoo, leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, rinse, and re-shampoo. Bye, damaged strands and flaky scalp.

Make some room on your bookshelf because Dr. Seuss is coming back. Random House announced that on July 28, it will release a recently discovered manuscript from the beloved author-illustrator.

The book, titled What Pet Should I Get?, will feature the same cast of characters from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Plans to publish at least two more books are also in the works. And just like that, my inner kid is so ready for a playful beach read.

Following Pantone’s lead, an eclectic color palette has paraded down the New York Fashion Week runways this past week. The main takeaway? Everyday neutrals have been punched up with soft brights and pastels. Yep, the hues you’re stocking up on for spring will transition right into next fall.

Fall 2015 Color Combos at NYFW

Classic Combos
Say hello to the usual suspects. Winter white, rich navy, and camel all took their turns anchoring looks on the runway. Midnight shades were spotted on timeless coats at Oscar de la Renta and Kendall Jenner opened Diane von Furstenberg in a white wrap dress, while camel suede further cemented the season’s 70s revival.

Lively Complements
Pastels and brights serve as ladylike partners for those tried-and-true neutrals. But come fall, they move beyond mint and lavender. Marigold and peach tones (perfectly paired at J.Crew) are your fast-pass to making a statement without going overboard.

Karlie begins the day promoting her March Vogue cover (co-starring BFF Taylor Swift, no less), then walks the runway at Lincoln Center, all while donning perfect hair and makeup. After a glimpse of her reality, it’s decided: we’ll walk in her shoes anytime.
