Oddly enough, I heard about Banza from an American – celebrity fitness trainer Kira Stokes. I say odd because I’ve been spending a good part of the year in Tel Aviv, home of the chickpea, and Banza is a high-protein pasta made from chickpeas.

Newfangled Bangs in Milan

Bangs (whether long, fringe, or short and choppy) were big on the runways in New York, London and Milan this season, but leave it to Prada to come out with a unique take – side bangs. The look was aptly conceived to be “simple but extreme,” according to hairstylist extraordinaire Guido Palau.

Runway Makeup You’ll Actually Want to Try

A Unique Runway Ponytail You Could Rock From Day to Night (and to the Gym!)

It’s not often that we see a truly unique look on a runway these days (putting aside clownish, over-the-top beauty and hair styles that no one would wear in real life). Public School managed to show one that was fresh, easy to re-create and versatile enough to wear day to night.
