NEW YORK — Conservators at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., are taking a bit of a fashionista turn. When the Lunder Conservation Center opens in the Smithsonian Saturday, the staff will be outfitted in denim aprons designed exclusively for the museum by Isaac Mizrahi.
Typically, preservation work — and the conservators completing it — are hidden in the back rooms of a museum. In an effort to bring preservation to the forefront of the museum experience, the Smithsonian has spent the past five years developing the 10,200-square-foot Lunder Conservation Center, which brings what many in the art world consider a museum’s most important work out to the public. The center features five laboratories and studios wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass walls, where visitors can watch the conservators at work, stop at educational kiosks and participate in public programs and outreach initiatives.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
Meet Flamingo. The direct-to-consumer brand is Harry’s first foray into products designed specifically for women. The line goes beyond shaving, venturing into a space that is typically relegated to darker corners of the drugstore — at-home waxing. #wwdbeauty
