Beauty is pain To be beautiful is to be in pain, a fact anybody who has ever worn heels for more than 3 hours can attest to.

She adored her older brother, Tom, and at 9-years-old, she shaved her head and dressed in his clothes. Her relationship with her brother...

Swimwear options remain woefully limited to stereotypical ideas of gender (bikini vs. trunks), but thankfully, Hirsuit is filling that gap with an androgynous suit made for a wide range of bodies, sizes (XXS-XXL), and identities. The idea comes from Rachel Berks, who is also behind the concept store and community space Otherwild, and her partner, artist A.L. Steiner. “Though gender-neutral clothing has been trending for...

  Rebelde Girl WHEN REGINA MERSON—a Mexico native raised in Dallas—left her lucrative career as a lawyer to launch a makeup line with the unique needs of Latinas in mind, it was as daunting as it was life affirming. “A lot of us are first generation,” she says of American Latinas, “and the first in our families to go to college, get office jobs, and have friends outside our cultural circles.
