    “My parents like to remind me that I went through a pretty serious Flashdance phase when I was younger,” V Magazine editor, Sarah Cristobal confessed. Safe to say Cristobal left that look behind a long time ago (thank god!) and sticks more to a regime of Proenza Schouler tops, Zero + Maria Cornejo jumpsuits, Altuzarra and Isabel Marant dresses, Kenzo T-shirts, and Cartier jewels. But, when asked about her style nowadays, she’s kind of at a, er, loss for words. “Oh gosh, I don’t know. Maybe wannabe Parisian urban boho?”

And being surrounded by creative geniuses like Stephen Gan, Carine Roitfeld, Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele, and Nicola Formichetti definitely helps.

With her suitcase not quite packed (who packs until the last minute anyways?), she treated us to an array of printed shirts, old school Phi (R.I.P.), and a pair of silver Jimmy Choo strappy slingbacks she bought on a whim before a black tie event. Among her pile of cashmere sweaters (stolen from her boyfriend!), we found her collection of Carrera by Jimmy Choo sunglasses — including those pretty penny gold and black camo ones (yes, guys, real gold) and glitter versions in dark gold, black, and nude. “A good pair of sunglasses can make you see the world in a new light,” she told us.

How To Get The Smoothest Legs, Ever

Winter is not exactly beauty's best friend. One of the only beauty bonuses courtesy of chilly weather: less-frequent shaving, for those of us who choose to do so at all.

On The 20th Day Of Yeezy, Kanye Held Up A Flight

In 2014, Kanye West went from rapper to adjective. He's been A-list for quite some time, but this year we saw a sharp transition in the way people talk about him. Comments went from "Look what Kanye said" to "How Kanye is that?" Now, Kanye is a lifestyle. He's the tortured artist to a point of self-parody. He is larger read
