  Kali Uchis   WE’VE BEEN HOT for Colombian-American songstress Kali Uchis since we first heard her 2012 mixtape Drunken Babble, which she released after graduating high school. Since then, she’s worked with heavy hitters like Snoop Dogg and Tyler, the Creator, standing out in the R&B/pop sea thanks to her silky smooth voice and Latin-influenced beats. And though her music has ears perking up, it’s the 24-year-old’s over-the-top femme, retro-meets-street style that has heads turning—think ’60s and ’70s prints, pumped-up bouffants, and headscarves, combined with tons of...

Personal (Care) Is Political   “I WAS DEFINITELY a NARS bitch,” Erin Gibson says. “I just love their pigments.” But that was before the writer (Feminasty: The Complicated Woman’s Guide to Surviving the Patriarchy Without Drinking Herself to Death) and comedian (she co-hosts the Throwing Shade podcast) thought about who was making money off her love of makeup. Spoiler alert—it was straight, white men. “I started looking at [the executives of] Estée Lauder, Revlon, L’Oréal, Covergirl,” she says. “There are no women at the top of these...
A. L. Mencken first popularized the word "flapper" in a 1915 essay for The Smart Set. His take: “She is opposed to the double standard of morality… She seldom blushes; it is impossible to shock her… It is a delight to see her sink her pearly teeth into a chocolate, macaroon, even a potato.” When Mencken wrote his piece, American women still did not have the right to vote—but that would soon change. Suffragists were changing the conversation and challenging social mores, as seen in this brutally frank...

“I never realized until lately that women were supposed to be the inferior sex.” Despite being known as Hollywood’s First Lady of Cinema, Katharine Hepburn was unabashed about maintaining a sense of self and independence. Born in 1907 to a doctor and a suffragette, she was encouraged to be opinionated and honest. Often described as a tomboy, Hepburn was an athletic and energetic child. 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...
