Your Horoscope This Week: May 9, 2021

No matter what the weather on your side of the world, the second week of May is sure to be a reprieve in an otherwise stormy season. The new moon in Taurus on the 11th cups the dark waters of April’s full moon in Scorpio and transforms them with a bright sliver of possibility. This lunation is uninterested in complications and determined to find pleasure wherever pleasure is on offer. Pleasure, here, can be as hedonistic as a night-in with a new date and an array of libations. Or, it can be the simple relief of carving out time and space to direct all your attention toward an activity that gives you a sense of purpose. Jupiter shifts into Pisces for the time being, encouraging the dreamers inside each and every one of us to rise up and claim more

Irina Shayk Mother’s Day Alo Beauty Campaign

It’s clear that supermodel Irina Shayk adores being a mom to her four-year-old daughter Lea. In fact, she credits the joys of motherhood as one of the reasons for her glowing skin. The other reasons? Icing her face each morning and sticking to a consistent skincare routine (with Alo Beauty products). So it’s no surprise that the yoga and wellness brand tapped Shayk for their Mother’s Day beauty campaign.

One of the supermodel’s beauty secrets is to use natural, clean ingredients to give her skin a boost—and indulge in the occasional mask with the help of her daughter. We chatted with Shayk ahead of the holiday about all things motherhood, beauty, and the secret to her runway-ready glow.

What is avant-basic? Brands like Lisa Says Gah popularize funky patterns

Have you started to notice the same funky patterns all over Instagram and TikTok? Bright colors and bold fabrics have been featured all over the place so often, they’re hardly unique anymore.

Back in December, writer Emma Hope Allwood sagely named this style “avant-basic.”

“It’s algorithm fashion…. quirkiness in the age of mechanical reproduction… vintage without the effort… if summer from 500 days of summer was an insta gal with a mullet,” she said.

Pairing these words together in one term describes an unorthodox style that’s been adopted by so many people, it’s no longer radical.

“Avant-garde patterns are paired with not-so-avant-garde styling. The clothes are different, but so many people wear them, and
