A Duster Coat Is the Answer to All Your Winter Wardrobe Problems

When it comes to outerwear, a duster coat is a timeless staple—and this season, brands like Mother of Pearl, Apparis, and Maje have made them more versatile than ever. Sure, you have your puffers, faux-fur bombers, and teddy jackets, but a longer coat reigns supreme as a stylish cold-weather cover-up (not to mention, every inch counts when cropped flares and winter dresses are on heavy rotation).

The distinction between a duster and any other coat is length—and while it doesn’t have to be floor-grazing, it should hit at least a few inches below the knee. Either way, given its easy-to-style nature, a duster coat regularly does the rounds in the chicest celebrity looks. Think of the Olsen twins—long-time fans of the style—who like theirs jet black and below the ankle, or Kate Middleton, who keeps it polished with a simple camel-colored duster.

And although the style has a rep for erring on the side of classic, even trend-forward celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Hailey Bieber have worked belted or oversized duster coats into their wardrobes.

The takeaway? Big chunky sweaters and thick layers aren’t always easy to pull off—but throw on a duster coat and you’ll never have to worry about looking like you just rolled out of bed (even if you just did). Ahead, nine duster coats worth adding to cart out right now.

Shop the 17 Best Teddy Coats to Wear All Winter 2020

For the past few years, there was a teddy coat so popular everybody owned it. Or at least everybody had seen it. It was made by I.AM.GIA, an affordable brand that’s popular among both traditional celebrities and the Instagram variety, and it was the Pixie coat, an oversize caramel confection with large front pockets and the type of supersoft faux fur that doesn’t feel unlike snuggling up to your favorite childhood stuffed animal.

It seems retailers at every price point have caught on, and the number of teddy coats we have to choose from is pretty massive. And while I.AM.GIA’s beloved style has sold out many times over (hot tip: it has started to get restocked on corners of the Internet), brands like Mango, Free People, Sandy Liang and The Arrivals (to name a few) all have their own iterations.

Whether you want an oversize style—reminiscent of the 1970s, a cropped bomber, or a teddy coat in a color that’s not exactly subtle (neon green accents or full-on electric orange, anyone?), there’s bound to be one that you love. Shop the 17 best teddy coats for winter 2020 and beyond, ahead.

15 Best Natural Deodorants for Women That Actually Work 2020

When it first came into the world, natural deodorant reeked of issues. They weren’t particularly easy to use, nor were they able to keep you smelling fresh until the end of the day. But after years of research, cosmetic chemists kept chugging until they found formulas that are just as good as the other deodorants you know and love. (A quick refresher: Natural deodorants contain no aluminum, which is what antiperspirants use to prevent your body from producing sweat.)

Still, there’s nothing worse than taking a chance on a natural deodorant to have it to melt down at the most inopportune time—which is why we called on Glamour staffers to sweat the problem for you. We tested dozens of options to narrow down which aluminum-free deodorants hold up to their claims. Here are the best natural deodorants for women to shop right now.

The First Trailer for Taylor Swift’s Documentary, Miss Americana, Is Finally Here

Taylor Swift‘s song lyrics have always been deeply personal, to the point that it can feel like we know her intimately. Of course, we don’t really—but come January 31, we will all be privy to other sides of the superstar when her documentary, Miss Americana, debuts on Netflix.

The first trailer for the doc dropped Wednesday, January 22. And if it’s any indication, we’re getting a behind-the-scenes version of Swift at a pivotal time in her life and career that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. It opens with Swift preparing to go on stage where “no one that I know of in the audience actively hates me.” She then tells herself to “not get dead face.”

“Throughout my whole career, record executives would just say, ‘A nice girl doesn’t force their opinions on people. A nice girl smiles and waves and says thank you,'” she says in a voiceover. “I became the person everyone wanted me to be.”

She talks about stepping away from the spotlight for a year because she thought that’s what people wanted and having to “deconstruct an entire belief system.” But there are lighter moments in the movie too, like the light-up shoes she wears in the recording studio and silly footage from her tour.

We also see some glimpses of her family, in particular her mom Andrea, who Swift revealed yesterday is battling a brain tumor. “While she was going through treatment, they found a brain tumor,” she told Variety. “And the symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor is nothing like what we’ve ever been through with her cancer before. So it’s just been a really hard time for us as a family.”

Taylor Swift’s Miss Americana starts streaming on Netflix on January 31. Mark your calendars accordingly.

Let Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Be Friends in Peace

Backstage on the 19th, when they both accepted statutes at the SAG awards, a photographer captured an instantly-iconic photo of her hand, clasped under his. It looks, literally, like she is walking away from him, and like he is unable to let her go.

Cool, cool, cool, cool.

Mega-celebrities like Brad and Jen strike a strange deal with us, their public. We give them more money, value, and privilege of influence than anyone could ever need or want. In exchange, they entertain us—sometimes on screen, mostly in paparazzi shots and interviews and shady Instagram likes and breakdowns and addiction. Like the Greek gods were for mortals, they are our hotter, but similarly flawed, avatars. We project ourselves on them. We imagine ourselves on Brad and Jen’s last vacation as a couple. We take sides in the love triangle with Angelina. We find ourselves discussing Jen’s chances of having children as if we are her reproductive endocrinologist.

Pitt and Aniston were the golden couple. They were our royals in the long, dull interim between Princess Diana and Windsor-Sussexes. They were on top when Hollywood was still a country club that celebrated almost exclusively white people and white beauty, and they have maintained their footing even as much else has changed. We have lived in parallel with them, having children and heartbreak and successes and setbacks; they’ve stuck around with us as we exchanged the Hiltons for the Kardashians, and through six terms by four presidents. In the sprawling celebrity dollhouse that we all play in, they are Barbie and Ken.

Of course we want them to be together. It would mean that everything happens for a reason! It would mean that happy endings are real! It would mean Parent Trap was right and our divorced parents were wrong! It would mean that the Laws of Love are like the Laws of Energy: that the total amount of love in the universe remains constant over time, conserved in the hearts of people we thought had long ago moved on.

Wouldn’t it be cool if life was truly cyclical? Wouldn’t it be great if life, instead of culminating in death, culminated in sex with Brad Pitt?

That’s a good fantasy. But reality is actually better.

In reality, Jennifer Aniston is one of the most popular women in the world, and she does not need to get back together with the nice-but-slightly-greasy guy she broke up with 15 years ago. In reality, the only reason this pairing is still on the table is that despite being asked about Brad Pitt no matter what she does and where she goes, Jennifer Aniston has never said one bad word about him in public. (“That was really uncool” is the meanest thing Jennifer Aniston has ever said about Jolie and Pitt, referring to them giving interview after interview about falling in love during the first couple’s marriage.)

In reality, since his divorce and coming out with his addiction struggle, Aniston hasn’t tried to seduce him. She’s supported him with social invitations and public warmth. Even though it wasn’t exactly a loving compliment, she smiled encouragingly on Sunday night when Pitt gave his SAG acceptance speech, saying that he related to his character in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, “who gets high, takes his shirt off, and doesn’t get on with his wife.” When asked about him that same night, Aniston said, “We’ve all grown up together; we really have. And it just feels like a really fun night to celebrate and cheer each other on and keep working.”

Folks, these extremely rich, pretty people are just trying to not be awful to each other. Their relationship is probably less like a sweeping epic love story nearing its satisfying conclusion, and more like two old friends who have buried the memories of the tastes of each other’s mouths under deeper feelings of mutual respect and understanding. We need to let the dream go, not for their sakes—their agents are probably overjoyed by these headlines—but for our own. We need to accept that things end. Things change. That we shouldn’t get weekday wine drunk and text our exes, and then be like “oh my god how embarrassing that was for someone else,” and then be like “well ha ha how are you.” We need to accept that we will live and die without seeing these hot shiny-haired actors kissing on the mouths ever again.

We need to take what we’re given instead: a woman who is the physical embodiment of Thank U, Next. Look at Jennifer in that silk dress, laughing, extending her hand, walking away. Look at her not getting back together with her ex, even though he’s literally Brad Pitt. God forbid something happens, ‘least her career is a smash.

L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Mascara Review With Photos

I’ve always been enchanted by huge, cartoonish eyes. After graduating from Disney princesses, I fixed my obsession on anime characters, whose colorful outfits and huge eyelashes equally spoke to me. Early on in high school, I idolized Zooey Deschanel and her wide-eyed look, and drew Twiggy lashes on my lower lash line when I went out at night.

I’ve since moved on to more sophisticated methods of enhancing my lashes in hopes of making my tiny eyes look like a cartoon. Lash extensions and lifts have been the most successful, but they’re expensive and time consuming, so finding a good mascara has been crucial. While I have some go-tos, I’d yet to find one that replicates the doll-eyed look of a lash lift.

Then the new L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Mascara came along, and I knew I had something to be excited about. For starters, L’Oréal makes some of my all-time favorite mascaras (at any price point), and anything that promises crazy volume and “a doe-eyed effect” has my attention. But, let’s be real here, obviously the real draw was the name. Bambi is the ultimate big-eye icon in my book. The fact that model Camille Rowe is heavily featured in the ads alongside Bambi himself just adds to my theory that this mascara was made specifically with me in mind.

Adorable branding aside, where this mascara truly stands out is the brush, which has a mix of long and short bristles to grab every lash. It’s on the spiky-plasticy side, which is great for shorter lashes like mine, yet has some heft to it to help with volume.

The first time I tested it out, I was ridiculously sick—I more closely resembled the Corpse Bride than my usual self. But after one swipe of the stuff (singing the Bambi eyes line from “This Is What Makes Us Girls” to myself, naturally), I was wowed. I looked wide awake, and all the life instantly came back to my face. It fanned out my lashes so they were super fluttery, and the brush made it seem like I have double the lashes I actually do. My lashes were instantly lifted and crazy curled (no lash curler needed!), giving me the doll-y eyes of my dreams in seconds. Essentially, it gave me the same effect as my beloved lash lift, without the trip to the salon. In short, I’m obsessed.

Look at that curl.

If you’re looking for a natural look, this might not be the best choice for you, although it doesn’t clump no matter how many layers I apply. It just definitely looks like you have mascara on, a look I personally love. But despite the crazy volume I didn’t sacrifice any definition, and the inky black formula stays on all day without any flaking or smudging.

It didn’t turn me into a cartoon character, but it came pretty damn close.

Chani Nicholas on Her New Book, Horoscopes as Self-Care, and the Universe’s Radical Truths

I first encountered Chani Nicholas’ horoscopes online during a mentally draining day job. While other astrologers prophesied the doom and gloom of an upcoming eclipse, Nicholas wrote with a clarity that cut to the core. She didn’t catastrophize about what the lunar event would mean; she seemed to have a sense of calm. With the right preparation, it would be OK.

Here was a writer who spoke to readers not to frighten them, but to empower them. “The nature of eclipse season is rapid endings and beginnings,” she wrote at the time. “Openings and closings. Release and renewal. Shadow and light.”

“The unknown is revealed and we might not always be ready to incorporate the information,” she continued. “But eclipses don’t wait for us to be ready. They ready us whether we like it or not.”

So when I learned within hours of that scheduled eclipse that my position at work had been eliminated, I wasn’t surprised. My bosses offered me the option of a lateral move to a different department or severance. I remembered what Nicholas had written, took a leap of faith, and left. I didn’t need to react to the universe’s whims from a place of terror, Nicholas seemed to advise. So I didn’t.

Nicholas was exposed to the planets as a child; she received her first astrological reading at age 12. The medium encouraged her to explore new sides of herself. As a child raised with “a lot of different parental setups,” Nicholas explains to me now that she found horoscopes at a moment when she was “yearning for something to be in conversation with me about who I was or what my potential might be.” Over time, the medium became something that, as she puts it, “was like a parent to me or became a really good friend.”

Chani Nicholas published her first book in January 2020.

HarperOne

Her interest in the stars grew as she got older. She became an astrologer herself, amassing fans via social media and her own newsletter. Now Nicholas has over 300,000 followers on Instagram. She partnered with Spotify on a celestial playlist. She is OprahMag.com’s resident astrologer. Earlier this month, she released You Were Born for This—her first book. Fashioned as a guide for beginners, You Were Born for This comes at a time when astrology has leapt from the fringes to the mainstream as popular apps like Co-Star and The Pattern alternate between frightening and exciting their users.

The book builds on a growing movement. For centuries, astrology has functioned in part as means for self-improvement, but the internet has democratized it and emphasized its relevance. People don’t just look up their signs in the back of fashion magazines. Entire websites are devoted to unique chart interpretations. Push alerts keep users posted on changing moons or upcoming eclipses. The website ismercuryinretrograde.com answers just that question, at all hours—right now it reads, “No. Something else must be bumming you out.”

The demands of life in 2020 are overwhelming, but astrology is simple; it offers a straightforward approach to understanding and caring for ourselves and for the world around us. And Nicholas—who customizes her readings for the 12 signs and around major astrological events—writes like a friend.

In one Instagram caption, she writes: “Buy all the optimism you can afford! Invest in your happiness by getting wild with it! There is no time to waste!” (Among other exhortations.)

Kim Kardashian Revealed How They Came Up With North’s Name—and It’s So Funny

North West, the oldest child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, is already six years old (time, how it flies!), and we’re just now learning the origin story of her unique name. Off-the-beaten path names for celebrity kids were nothing new in 2013 when North was born, but her moniker certainly drove a lot of online conversation considering the massive fame of her two parents. She was later joined by equally interestingly-named siblings: Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

This week, Kardashian revealed the unexpected person who first gave her the idea to call her daughter North. “I actually got it from Jay Leno, who made that as a joke,” she said in a new YouTube makeup tutorial with her sister, Kylie Jenner. “I was like, ‘No way, I would never name my daughter that.’ Like, I said that on his show.”

“Everyone was coming up to me like, ‘It’s such a cool name. You should really think about it,’” she continued, noting that it took four or five days to land on North.

Back in 2013, Kris Jenner (a.k.a. Lovey) attempted to explain her granddaughter’s name on The View. “I love the name North. I’m pro-North, absolutely,” she said. “The way she [Kim] explained it to me was North means ‘highest power,’ and she says that North is [Kim and Kanye’s] highest point together. And I thought that was really sweet.”

Kim Kardashian gave a little insight into how her other children’s names came to be, as well. “Kanye came up with Saint,” she said. “Chicago took me, like, two weeks. And Psalm, you named him,” she says to Jenner, who added, “Well, you thought of it. I vouched for it.”

No matter what you thought about her name at the time, North West really does seem like a North, doesn’t she?
