Best Shopping Bags: The Newest Handbag Trend Is Oversize

Large bags have gotten a bad rep: You overpack, you schlep, you can’t find anything inside…. They’ll cause you to breathlessly explain to everyone you see, “Ah! Sorry for all of this stuff.” It takes up an extra seat at restaurants. It’s the reason you’ve saved every receipt you didn’t know you had.

That might explain why fashion rallied behind those supercute mini bags that can really only fit some credit cards, a tube of lipstick, and maybe, if you’re lucky, your iPhone—but definitely not the plus. The most popular one, by French designer Jacquemus, was six centimeters tall and 10 centimeters wide. It’s so cute, it’ll initially make you squeal…before inevitably making you scream when you realize there are so many things you need to carry that there’s no room for. But for spring 2019, Jacquemus appears to have done a 180: At his most recent Paris Fashion Week show, he debuted the exact opposite—totes that were large, spacious, and perfect for dumping the entire contents of your life into.

Jacquemus wasn’t the first to indulge a love for overpacking: Proenza Schouler, Maison Margiela, and Jil Sander have all released large shoulder and tote handbags within the past year, having models tuck them under their arm or wear just one strap on their shoulder so that the other flails in the wind. Being a lady with lots of things is nothing to be ashamed of.

So go ahead and get ready to carry everything you own—see below for the best large handbags, in order of how much stuff they can actually fit.

The True Story Behind A Star Is Born’s Final Scene Will Make You Cry All Over Again

Warning: Spoilers for A Star Is Born ahead!

The final scene in A Star Is Born—in which Lady Gaga sings the powerful ballad “I’ll Never Love Again”—is more than enough to have anyone sobbing into their popcorn. But in case the movie didn’t leave you gutted enough, the real-life tragedy that occurred in Gaga’s life the same day she filmed the heartbreaking scene will have you crying all over again.

In a new interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Gaga revealed that while she was on set getting ready to shoot, she received news that one of her closest friends, Sonja Durham, was nearing the end of her battle with stage IV cancer. “On that day my friend Sonja—who had been battling cancer for years—her friend called me and I could hear her moaning in the background and she said she’s not doing well,” Gaga said. “And I thought she was dying, so I left the set.”

The pop star says she didn’t even tell costar and director Bradley Cooper that she had left. “I just got in my car and started driving and I missed her by 10 minutes,” she said.

Gaga shared that she laid with Sonja’s son and husband, and consulted her friend’s widower about whether she should return to set. “He said, ‘You’ve gotta do what Sonja would want you to do,'” Gaga recalled. “She gave me a tragic gift that day and I took it with me to set, and I sang that song for Jackson and for her on that very same day within an hour.”

When she returned to set, she said, Cooper was kind and supportive in the wake of her loss. “Bradley was so beautiful with me that day, he was so loving. He was like, ‘You don’t have to do it too many times, it’s OK.’ And, I was like, ‘All I wanna do is sing, man,'” she said.

And so Gaga stepped in front of the camera and sang lyrics that had suddenly become even more poignant than they already are in the context of the film. “Wish I could, I could have said goodbye/ I would have said what I wanted to, maybe even cried for you/ If I knew it would be the last time/ I would have broke my heart in two/ Tryin’ to save a part of you,” she sings, per Genius.

In the interview, Gaga continued, “Life is hard, man, but we’ve gotta stick together. What’s more important than any of this, the fame, the accolades? What’s important is the process of love and kindness. I think the star of this film is human courage, bravery.”

11 Nontoxic Nail Polishes That Don’t Chip Immediately

In the world of beauty, the word toxins has lost most of its meaning. Same with nontoxic, because the two words don’t have concrete, universal definitions. With nail polish, however, ingredients are becoming slightly more transparent. Brands have started to take note about the use of potentially harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (the “big three”), along with others like formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, and xylene. When a formula is free of those additives, that’s when you’ll see three-, five-, seven-, eight-, or nine-free written on the label. And while being cognizant of using safe(r) products is important, the trade-off shouldn’t be a disappointing nail polish experience. Happily, it no longer is. Glamour‘s staff got down to testing a spate of chic, thoughtful formulas, and came away impressed with the ones below.

Kylie Jenner Looks So Much Like Kris Jenner With This Pixie, It’s Crazy

One of the many things the Kardashian-Jenner family is famous for is their constant hair changes, whether that’s a dye job, wig, or $8,000 extensions. The latest sister to change her hair though drew some inspiration from close to home.

Yesterday, Kylie ripped some sort of hole in the Jenner time-space continuum when she FaceTimed her mom wearing, a wig that looks exactly like Kris’s iconic pixie. She shared the whole thing to her Instagram Story with the caption, “obsessed with you @krisjenner.” On anyone else, a lookalike wig and the word “obsessed” could ring a little too Fatal Attraction. But it’s just another day in the Jenner universe. And you’ve got to admit, the two do look alike.

It’s not even just the hair—from the round cheeks to the studded earrings to those sly “I’m a billionaire” smiles, the resemblance is uncanny. Of course, that makes sense, since they are mother and daughter. Now we’re just waiting for Kris to get her Kylie-inspired revenge and show up on Instagram in waist-length pink or blue hair.

Knowing how much Kylie loves to switch up her look, she may be just a few snips away from going full Kris. At least now we know she’d look just as good as a momager as she already does as a mom.

Ted Mosby From *How I Met Your Mother* Is Meredith Grey’s Love Interest This Season

McDreamy is officially so 2015. As first reported by People, Josh Radnor—perhaps best known for playing Ted Mosby How I Met Your Mother—has joined Grey’s Anatomy as a new love interest for Ellen Pompeo’s character, Meredith Grey.

Details of his role are being kept under wraps, but ABC was nice enough to give us a few clues about his arrival: He and Meredith get set up on a “hot” blind date by friends in an episode that will air October 11. The network hasn’t specified whether or not Radnor will be sticking around for more than one episode, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Radnor, as you probably know, spent nine seasons as the beleaguered architect/college professor Ted Mosby on HIMYM, in which his quest to find his children’s “mother” was recounted years later to his children. He has since headlined the period drama Mercy Street and the musical drama Rise, but both were met with quick cancellations.

As for Pompeo, she’s hinted in a recent interview that when her current Grey’s contract expires—at the conclusion of season 16—she might leave the show to explore other career opportunities. “I’m clearly not prepared right now to make any kind of formal announcement about what my future is on the show, but I am really feeling like we have told the majority of the stories we can tell. It’s about time that I mix it up. I’m definitely looking for a change,” she explained. “I think I’ve had an amazing training. I’ve had a master class in producing these last 14 years. I know every aspect of making a television show. Producing and directing is where I’m challenged and where I’m learning. It’s more interesting to me because it’s a skill I haven’t mastered yet.”

While sad, we can’t wait to see what she does next, should she indeed choose to leave. And in the meantime, we’re looking forward to her latest coupling.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Name Is Now Being Used As A Resource For Sexual Assault Survivors

Brett Kavanaugh’s controversial ascent to the Supreme Court has been difficult for many women, particularly those who have endured sexual assault. But any survivors who are struggling in the wake of the confirmation now have one new and unexpected resource to turn to: Brettkavanaugh.com.

According to reports, the website launched the same day Kavanaugh was sworn in through the efforts of Fix The Court, a non-partisan organization that advocates for increased transparency and honesty within the Supreme Court. The site consists of a simple landing page that includes multiple links to different groups specializing in helping sexual assault victims, and they include the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, End Rape On Campus, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

“The start of Brett Kavanaugh’s tenure on the Supreme Court may look like a victory for one interest group or another,” the website reads. “But, more importantly, it is putting a national focus on the issue of sexual assault – and how we as a country can and should do more to prevent it and to support those who have experienced it. This past month, thousands of survivors came forward to tell their stories. We applaud your bravery. We believe you.”

In a statement on its website, Fix The Court executive director Gabe Roth explained that three years ago, he bought a handful of URLs that related to possible Supreme Court nominees. One of these was BrettKavanaugh.com. He also secured BrettKavanaugh.org and BrettKavanaugh.org, which now redirect back to the Brett Kavanaugh landing page.

“I believe Dr. Ford. I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness,” Roth wrote.

Roth also referred to a divisive public ceremony that the White House held for Kavanaugh on Monday, during which President Donald Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for “pain and suffering” that the new justice been forced to endure” after several women, including Christine Blasey Ford, accused him of sexual misconduct.

“Watching last night’s White House event and listening to the President again cast doubt on veracity of Dr. Ford’s claims, while not hearing a word of contrition from the newest justice, was difficult for many Americans who have experienced sexual misconduct firsthand,” Roth said in his statement. “Fix the Court stands with you. We believe you, and we support you. And if you seek additional resources, you can go to BrettKavanaugh.com.”

Lady Gaga Wrote a Powerful Essay About Mental Health Awareness

Wednesday is World Mental Health Day, and to raise awareness for it, Lady Gaga is speaking out. While she’s done so on numerous occasions before when talking about her own personal experiences, Gaga is now wondering aloud why there aren’t more resources for those dealing with mental health issues.

“Suicide is the most extreme and visible symptom of the larger mental health emergency we are so far failing to adequately address,” she writes in an op-ed cowritten by Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization, for The Guardian. “Stigma, fear and lack of understanding compound the suffering of those affected and prevent the bold action that is so desperately needed and so long overdue.”

Gaga and Dr. Ghebreyesus also questioned how mental health issues are so prevalent yet so unaddressed. “One in four of us will have to deal with a mental health condition at some point in our lives, and if we’re not directly affected, someone we care for is likely to be,” they write. “Yet despite the universality of the issue, we struggle to talk about it openly or to offer adequate care or resources. Within families and communities, we often remain silenced by a shame that tells us that those with mental illness are somehow less worthy or at fault for their own suffering.”

The pair also shined a light on the lack of resources available for those dealing with mental health issues, writing, “In too many places support services are non-existent and those with treatable conditions are criminalized – literally chained up in inhumane conditions, cut off from the rest of society without hope… Mental health currently receives less than 1% of global aid. Domestic financing on prevention, promotion and treatment is similarly low. At present, every nation in the world is a ‘developing’ country when it comes to mental health… The two of us have taken different paths in life. But both of us have seen how political leadership, funding, innovation and individual acts of bravery and compassion can change the world. It is time to do the same for mental health.”

Earlier this year, Lady Gaga opened up about her own mental health journey when accepting an award for her Born This Way Foundation, telling the crowd per Billboard, “I have struggled for a long time, both being public and not public about my mental health issues or my mental illness. But I truly believe that secrets keep you sick.”

Priyanka Chopra’s Proposal Didn’t Go Down How You Think It Did

In an interview with People this week, Priyanka Chopra explained the cinematic reason why she had her heart set on receiving a diamond Tiffany & Co. engagement ring from Nick Jonas.

“Well, I may have dropped that hint. I think we had a conversation about it when we were dating and I’ve always known it had to be Tiffany,” Chopra said while attending a Tiffany & Co. event in New York City on Tuesday night (October 9). “I just knew it since I was a kid. First, it was Breakfast at Tiffany’s that did it for every girl in the world, and then, of course, Sweet Home Alabama came and put a stamp on it that it has to be Tiffany!”

She added, “Since I was a little girl, it was just something that was stuck in my head. And I may have said that, and I guess he remembered.”

While the Quantico actress did get her gorgeous Tiffany ring—it’s a large, cushion-cut diamond surrounded by smaller, tapered baguettes—the proposal didn’t actually happen just like it did in Sweet Home Alabama, despite previous reports. Over the summer, when news broke that Jonas had proposed to Chopra, multiple outlets reported that he popped the question in the middle of an actual Tiffany & Co. store that he rented out for the day, just as Patrick Dempsey’s character did when he proposed to Reese Witherspoon’s character in the 2002 film.

But Chopra set the record straight, telling People that while Jonas did, in fact, shut down an entire Tiffany store, she wasn’t in attendance. “No, I wasn’t there. He and his brothers went and did a whole thing to buy the ring for his future wife,” she said. Still a pretty movie-worthy moment!
