Londra — Dopo aver provato non dico tutti, ma gran parte dei visori per la realtà virtuale che esistono sul mercato, posso affermare con una certa consapevolezza che non sono aggeggi fatti per chi porta gli occhiali. Anzi, chi li progetta deve odiare tantissimi i miopi. Alcuni visori sono incompatibili con qualsiasi montatura, altri rendono la convivenza davvero difficile. Provando in anteprima il Daydream View di Google, invece, ho avuto la sensazione che l’accoppiata sia finalmente possibile.
Daydream View può sembrare economico, ma non di bassa qualità: è morbido, incredibilmente leggero (220 grammi) e davvero comodo. Così leggero da non aver bisogno di un elastico che passi sopra la testa per tenerne il peso: basta stringere gli strap sul retro. E sì, ci si sta dentro con gli occhiali senza che il peso ti schiacci il naso dopo qualche minuto.
Con il visore è incluso un controller che funziona anche da puntatore laser virtuale: quando il visore non è in uso, trova posto in uno spazio dedicato nello sportello.
I am a married woman and I didn’t meet my husband online — which is yet another reason why I feel cut off from my generation. If this were the 70s, I would have metaphorically never gone to Studio 54.
This fact however, does make me uniquely qualified to review the various efficacies of different dating apps. At least, I think so. Why? I guess because I have no skin in the game. Plus I am curious. What is Studio 54? Was it cool? Or was it just so weird? Was Michael Jackson there? (Yes)
Tinder has been exhaustively written about, although I don’t even know why because it’s not funny at all. The app uses a combination of your Facebook profile, a two-line description and your location to give you a random sampling of the men in your area. Essentially, it is like going to a bar where you don’t know anyone and there is nothing to lose.
The very name seems to conjure low expectations. The app is not called “The Fires Of Love,” for example. Still, I was surprised how many app-users seemed so anxious in this relatively no fail system with zero stakes. There seemed to be so much fear in the eyes of the men on this site, who were usually leaning against a building, hiking outside, or taking a kind of vain selfie of the top of their eyes. It was sad. I started to feel bad for everyone like I was Holden Caulfield and they were my kid sister Phoebe.
Hinge is just like Tinder, but based on the assumption that you never want to leave the dysfunctional, airless social circle you are a part of. Based on Hinge, all of the men I would possibly be suited for are wearing Breton striped sweaters with boat necks?? Why! What does that say about my airless social circle? I have to get new friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happn (the lack of “e” was such a surprise. No one mentioned that to me) is this app that uses Facebook (honestly, how anxiety provoking that they all use Facebook) and your location (which they rip from your cellphone) to see which fellow app-users you have crossed paths with throughout the day. Then they show you a selection of those people.
It’s like the plot of You’ve Got Mail or the mechanism by which Ted Bundy stalked and killed his victims. On this site, the men seem to go to great lengths to seem nonthreatening. They are all holding dogs, or crouching. But that is exactly what Ted Bundy did to lure his victims!
Bumble is the “feminist” dating app. Essentially it is the same as anything else, except the women are the choosers, like the Sadie Hawkins dance of your nightmares. As a woman full of embarrassment, this didn’t necessarily seem to be the liberation I was looking for but then I actually went on the app. The men on this app are INSANELY good looking. They literally look like models. This could be for two reasons: 1) The men who have signed up for Bumble are there because they know what it is like to be objectified and they have Leaned In to never doing any work ever again 2) It is a Ponzi scheme by Bernard L. Madoff, which he is operating from prison! That smart bastard.
Ok, Cupid (that’s how I spell it, with a comma of regret) makes everyone take an exhaustive questionnaire and then matches you up with a stranger according to how many of your answers to these questions match. It’s very work intensive. You can write, like, literally an essay in your profile. For example, one profile I saw had an entire description of the inside mechanics of a pen. It think it was supposed to be a metaphor for dating??? Hard to say.
I knew this experiment was at its close when I tried to join another dating site called “The League” (good lord) and like some sort of dystopian George Orwell nightmare, “The League” asks for both your Facebook AND your LinkedIn password. I don’t remember my LinkedIn password! What is LinkedIn? The end.

It’s official: Beyoncé and Blue Ivy have the best mother-daughter style in Hollywood.
The superstar shared several videos on Instagram today that show off several of her most recent street style looks, but what we can’t get over are the matching custom AKID denim jackets that the proud mom and her mini-me rock in several of the snaps.
The “Sorry” singer was previously spotted in her “slay” coat during a night out with husband Jay Z in New York City on Monday evening, which she paired with high-waist jean shorts, a black T-shirt, statement Gucci pumps, an Ivy Park camouflage trucker hat of her own design, and a clutch that read “I kiss better than I cook.” Meanwhile, the 4-year-old rocked her version of the jacket with a white tee, printed mini skirt, pink Converse sneakers, a graphic Gucci bag, and two pink scrunchies that were wrapped around her pigtails.

But Blue wasn’t the only family member that Beyoncé gave a shoutout to in her new photos. In one of the ‘grams, the 35-year-old showed off a gold script necklace that declared her love for her rapper hubby and said “Mrs. Carter.”

Talk about major family #fashiongoals.
On Friday, The Washington Post revealed video of the Republican presidential nominee bragging to Billy Bush about non-consensually groping women (a.k.a, sexual assault): “When you’re a star, they let you do it—you can do anything,” Trump said in the unearthed 2005 Access Hollywood footage. “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
For the style stars who brave an entire month of jet-setting and fashion shows, we have to wonder, do they ever run out of outfits? The answer, of course, is a resounding no. Still, it’s interesting to see what everyone’s toting along to different cities. We kept our eye on New York’s best street style as well as on the streets of Paris, but how do they stack up?
We decided to take a look at how some of our favorite trendsetters dress for fashion week in New York and Paris and seeing how they tackle each city’s signature style. From the ease and edge of NYC’s street style to the luxe and feminine looks in the City of Light, here’s how fashion’s It girls pulled it off flawlessly.
The results—we’ll let you see them yourself. Check it all out below!
Kaia Gerber is becoming quite the young trendsetter.
The budding model took to Instagram today to share a snap of herself in what we consider to be the perfect Friday look—a stylish olive green Shadow Hill sweatsuit (above). In the image, Cindy Crawford’s look-alike teenage daughter poses coolly for the camera in a hooded sweatshirt that she artfully slashed into a crop top and matching slim-fit sweatpants. She topped off her easy look with a pair of gold-rimmed wayfarer sunnies and styled her long brunette locks in loose waves.
The 15-year-old star—who recently landed a gig as the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty and made her acting debut in the Lifetime flick Sister Cities last month—simply captioned the snap by writing: “trip to the desert.”
Love Gerber’s outfit? You’re in luck. You can pick up the exact cozy waffle knit set she’s wearing for $200 on shadowhillusa.com now.

Gerber definitely knows how to do athleisure right.
Jennifer Lopez’s twins are growing up! The singer took to Instagram to share the cutest photo with her “baby,” 8-year-old son Max, and we can’t get over his resemblance to his dad, Marc Anthony.
In the snap, Lopez cozies up on a couch in a black set of pajamas, with her young son curled up in her lap. The 47-year-old looks down lovingly at Max, while he gazes off into the distance and looks just like dad Anthony. “Me and my baby,” Lopez captioned the post.

While the singer and Anthony separated back in 2011, they have remained a big part of each other’s lives as they co-parent their twins, Max and Emme. That’s not the only way they’re teaming up: Lopez announced on Thursday that she’s releasing a new Spanish-language album in 2017, and Anthony is serving as executive producer of the record.
“I am looking forward to our creative collaboration and to be part of continuing her musical legacy,” he said in a statement.
