When I look back on the last several years here at Cliché as Editor in Chief, I think of emails. There were a lot of them: emails from my writers, emails from potential partners, and emails from countless talent representatives from all across the country. During my first year as Editor in Chief, while I was still attending university, I read them on my bus ride home. I’d reply from my Macbook in the college library. I’d sneak responses in during lectures and at my part time job, careful not to get caught by my professors or my bosses. While it’s quite a change from where I am today (no longer in school but receiving more emails than ever), that eager hustler in me is still the same.

A bride should feel absolutely radiant on her wedding day, and while the wedding dress is arguably the most important piece of that occasion, the right makeup a close second. All brides want to look absolutely flawless in those wedding photos that she will surely be showing her family for years to come, so a lot of thought and care is put into creating a flattering, long-lasting beauty look. Perhaps the artists at Make-Up Pro understand that mission better than anyone.
Last night, Anna Wintour hosted what is pretty much know as Hollywood’s annual prom: the Met Gala. While this event is meant to help raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City, it is also the perfect chance for our favorite celebrities to take major, artful fashion risks. As our favorite celebrities dragged heavy trains, sequined gowns, and billowing ball gowns up the iconic steps, we watched on Twitter in awe. This year, the event honored Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo with an exhibition entitled “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” And Hollywood’s biggest stars did not disappoint.
When designer Naeem Khan was creating his Spring 2018 Bridal collection, he had one thing in mind: luxury. Instead of just focusing on current trends, he wanted to create “important” dresses for women of all different backgrounds, tastes, and cultures. “This woman really wants the best, and these brides come from all across the world, from Saudi Arabia to Israel to Santo Domingo, Peru to North America,” he said backstage. “It’s the crème de la crème.”
