We Asked 4 New Moms to Test Origins’ Calming Cannabis Face Mask

If there’s one thing any new mom will tell you, it’s that maternity leave is no vacation…unless your idea of a winter break involves waking up at all hours of the night, spit-up, and adult diapers. And that’s only the beginning. Between going back to work and the emotional toll of not wanting to miss life’s big moments with a new baby, having a child—whether its your first or your fifth—can suddenly make even the most iron-willed of mothers feel like life is totally upended.

So, to help make things a little less crazed, we tasked four extremely busy new moms with one mission: Carve out 10 minutes in their hyper-hectic schedules to chill the eff out with the help of a “calming” face mask. Not just any calming face mask, though: Origins Hello, Calm Relaxing & Hydrating Face Mask; which, according to the brand, is made with cannabis sativa seed oil (from, yes, a weed plant) that’s meant to help calm skin, reduce irritation, and make you feel less stressed out.

You’ve likely heard of CBD at this point, which some brands claim can reduce inflammation and anxiety. The science behind its benefits is still murky, but that hasn’t stopped it from cropping up in a slew of beauty and wellness products lately. (It’s even in gummies now.) Origins’ buzzy mask also rides on the weed trend, but instead, uses cannabis sativa seed oil—an ingredient made from cold-pressed hemp seeds that’s rich in skin-repairing acids and said to be helpful with redness and dryness. Lavender oil, meanwhile, is what gives the mask its “de-stressing” scent.

To answer the obvious questions: no, it won’t get you high, and yes, it’s probably wise to consult your doctor if you’re breastfeeding. As for whether the mask actually does help you relax, we’ll let the moms below take it away.

Here’s Your First Look at Mandy Moore’s Dreamy Rodarte Wedding Dress

This Is Us star Mandy Moore was up to something very special over the weekend: She married her longtime boyfriend Taylor Goldsmith in a private Los Angeles ceremony on Sunday (November 18). The couple and their guests are starting to share images of the intimate event on social media, including a look at the bride’s stunning wedding dress, designed by one of her favorite designers.

The first glimpse at the gown came from the bride herself: Moore posted an image of herself in an ethereal floor-length dress, holding hands with Goldsmith, and captioned it “11•18•18,” their wedding date. Even without a tag, it was easy to recognize the designer, if only from Moore’s own red-carpet record: Rodarte

Take a look at her wedding dress, designed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, below.

The gown featured tiered layers made from swiss-dot tulle and floral appliqués. It’s a custom version of a style seen on Rodarte’s Haute Couture show back in July, which you can see below, complete with a matching tulle veil.

Back in August, she told People that though she hadn’t settled on a designer for her bridal look, she was “kind of confident that it’s not going to be the stereotypical white wedding dress, because it just doesn’t feel the most me.”

“It’s going to probably be a little bit more non-traditional,” she continued. “I think the whole day will sort of feel a little bit more non-traditional, so the dress will sort of follow suit. I kind of want to feel like the best version of myself.”

Rodarte is a Hollywood favorite. (For its Fall 2018 2018 campaign, it tapped several famous faces, including Kirsten Dunst, Ava Philippe, and Rowan Blanchard to model in its lookbook.) Moore can be counted among the celebrities who admire the brand’s designs: She wore a black and gold Rodarte gown to the 2018 Emmys, just months ago.

The pale-pink wedding dress was a perfect fit for Moore’s intimate nuptials. In her November Glamour cover story, she shared that she wanted a small, simple ceremony with close friends. And though she has yet to share any images from the celebration itself, the first look at her dress says it all: It was incredibly romantic.

Mr. Big Was Going to Die in *Sex and the City 3*

The saga of Sex and the City 3 dominated the Internet for months last fall. We know a script for the movie exists—one that Sarah Jessica Parker says is “beautiful” and “heartbreaking”—but Kim Cattrall opted not to get on board. Why she turned down the project is still a mystery. Cattrall claims it was always a “respectful, firm no” for her, but others say negotiations did take place. Regardless, the movie isn’t happening, which means there’s a whole chapter of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha’s lives that exists but we’ll never see.

A few details about the third movie are pouring out, though. In the latest episode of Cadence13’s podcast Origins, host James Andrew Miller interviews several SATC cast members and gets to the bottom of why a third flick never panned out. Miller reports that Cattrall’s inner circle believed she’d never do SATC 3 for two reasons: One concerned the film’s plot, which, according to Miller, called for Mr. Big to die of a heart attack. Yup.

“People close to Kim believe she never wanted to do the third movie, period,” Miller says.”And they point to two large issues that made it impossible for anyone close to her to talk her into doing it. First, although each woman was to get $1 million up front, they believe the way the backend had been divided up among the five—the four women and [creator] Michael Patrick King—was unequal and unfair. And second, people close to Kim believe that the script for the movie didn’t have a lot to offer the character of Samantha. They pointed a fact that it calls for Mr. Big to die of a heart attack in the shower relatively early on in the film, making the remainder of the film more about how Carrie recovers from Big’s death than about the relationship between the four women.”

Let’s process that for a second. If Sex and the City 3 came out, Mr. Big would’ve died of a heart attack. Talk about bleak!

However, that might’ve been just what Chris Noth (who played Mr. Big) wanted. The actor reveals in this podcast that he wasn’t keen on the cheesier scenes in the Sex and the City movies.

“I really didn’t enjoy any of the movies,” he said. “I really hate corny stuff. It could be because I’m a little bit of a cynic. The whole thing at the end of the [first] movie with the shoe and the closet: hated it. I’m a team player, but I never really enjoyed the movies. I thought they were sentimental as hell. Even the humor didn’t match the series.”

Release the SATC 3 script, Michael Patrick King! We need to know more.

Meghan Markle Makes a Case For the Halter Top Gown Like Only a Duchess Can

This will go down as the year that Meghan Markle singlehandedly re-introduced unexpected fashion pieces into the zeitgeist through her royal wardrobe. It began with the bateau neckline, and it continues with another aught-y silhouette, courtesy of her look for a formal event in London.

On Monday (November 19), Markle attended the Royal Variety performance with Prince Harry. For the black-tie occasion, royal fans may have expected another tuxedo dress or boatneck style—but the Duchess of Sussex isn’t one to shy away from a surprising sartorial choice. So, she arrived wearing a sequined halter top and skirt set eby Safiyaa London.

Check it out.

The full lewk was less reminiscent of the early-aughts than it sounds: The halter top featured black stripes and a white floral sequin pattern, while the skirt was unembellished.

The silhouette my recall the mid-2000s, but the set was plucked from Safiyaa’s most recent Resort collection. And it might just convince any naysayer to give the halter top another chance.

She accessorized with diamond earrings from Maison Birks and a clutch from UFO, the latter being a re-wear from her and Prince Harry’s Hamilton outing back in August.)

With a month and a half left in the year, Markle reminded us, yet again, that she’s not done serving fashion moments in 2018 just yet.

30 Holiday Gifts Every Fashion Lover Will Want

For someone who’s a fashion editor, I don’t really enjoy shopping. Well, I’m not great at committing: I’ll spend hours on name-any-e-commerce-site, fill up an entire cart with pieces I’ve already built outfits around in my head, and then—when it comes time to check out—I’ll just close the tab. It’s a thrill, really, but it’s also put me three months behind various trends, like bike shorts and prairie dresses, despite having written about them countless times. As you can imagine, this indecisiveness means I’m very fun to shop for. And the hundreds of special product launches timed to the holidays, gift guides, and other suggestions meant to make the process that much more seamless… don’t really help at all. But here’s the thing about shopping for a fashion person: Though trends come and go, some purchases really stand the test of time, so you can’t go wrong with a minimal signet ring, wool sneakers, or even a leopard-print coat. Ahead, you’ll find 30 of such gift ideas that’ll make the style-savvy person in your life (and that can be you or a loved one) very happy this holiday season.

We bring you the trends. You make them your own. Sign up for our daily newsletter to find the best fashion for YOU.

10 Items on Priyanka Chopra’s Wedding Registry That Are Just…Confusing

Priyanka Chopra‘s wedding registry is here and it’s, well, confusing. The Amazon-sponsored list is a hodgepodge of items that range from your typical wedding gift fare—like silverware and pillows—to…snowboards. And dog raincoats. And roller blades. Is Chopra planning to walk down the aisle in roller blades? Does the activity hold a special place in her heart? Is she just a big fan of Rocket Power? Because there’s absolutely no reason why roller blades should be on her wedding registry unless there’s a specific reason.

In fact, many of the items on this registry read more like “things Priyanka Chopra would impulse-buy” instead of “things Priyanka Chopra needs to start a life with Nick Jonas.” Who am I to judge, though? Maybe a table tennis set is exactly what Chopra and Jonas need to feel like a married couple.

Below, the 10 items from her registry that are just blowing my mind. (But hey, buy them if you feel so inclined.)

How to Fake Looking Awake, According to TV Anchors

Asking a beauty professional—whether it’s a celebrity hairstylist, makeup artist, or Instagram influencer (hi, 2018)—for advice is always a safe bet. But dig a little deeper, and you’ll find there are plenty of other women out there who are legitimate authorities in their own right. In our new column, Unlikely Experts, they’ll give real reviews and recommendations. Whether it’s surfers on the best conditioners, bikers on the best cleansers, or ballerinas on the best foot creams, it’s fair to say these women know best.

It might be hard to believe, but the female news anchors you get your information from every morning don’t only exist on your television or laptop screens. In fact, they’re real women (Moms! Wives! Fitness junkies!) who, despite often having to arrive at work before the sun rises, are expected to look refreshed, energized, and camera-ready—every single day.

The most impressive part? Most of the anchors you see on your local news station (and even some national programs) are required to take care of their own makeup. No makeup team, no glam squad, no supply of fancy products in an equally fancy dressing room.

It’s fair to say that anyone who has mastered the art of looking put together, healthy, and well-rested under a dozen high-volume lights at 6 A.M. is someone we’d want to learn a thing or two from. So, we spoke with a handful of these women from across the country about the products they rely on in order to look like their best, bright-eyed selves every the morning—and they delivered. Check their favorites below.

Hailey Baldwin Is Now Hailey Bieber—and Has the Jacket to Prove It

It’s not official until you embroider your married name onto a piece of clothing. Fine, that’s definitely not how it works—but before Hailey Baldwin quietly announced she’d changed her name to Hailey Bieber, she made a reference to her husband, Justin Bieber, via her clothing.

The model attended the opening for Levi’s new flagship in New York on Thursday evening. (Emily Ratajkowski, Joan Smalls, Barbara Palvin, Dylan Sprouse, and Ansel Elgort were also in attendance—so, you know, casual weeknight outing.) It appears she took advantage of the store’s customization options, leaving the party with a new denim jacket emblazoned with “BIEBER” across the back.

Levi’s managed to get a picture of on its Instagram Story that evening as Baldwinr left the event. Check out it.

The next day, the 21-year-old would change her Instagram handle from @haileybaldwin to @haileybieber, as well as how her name appears on her account, seemingly confirming that she and the singer had officially tied the knot—after Bieber referred to her as “my wife” in a separate Instagram post. Ah, these two.

You too can buy the same Levi’s jacket Baldwin customized—it’s the Oversized Sherpa Jacket, which retails for $168. How you customize it is entirely up to you.
