Boat hair, don’t care?
Reese Witherspoon takes a less-is-more approach to styling her hair on vacation — and we’re all about it!
The Big Little Lies star has been enjoying some time off with three friends on a relaxing girl’s trip getaway, and she isn’t wasting time blow drying her hair after taking a dip in the pool. Instead, Witherspoon’s keeping things easy and just letting her strands air dry with the help of the ocean breeze. She’s so committed, she didn’t even bring a hair dryer with her on the trip!

Directed by Taylor Hackford, this revealing 1987 documentary celebrating Chuck Berry’s 60th birthday turns into an exploration of the great rocker’s curdled world view as much as a tribute to his music; by film’s end we realize the two are inexorably intertwined. Along with signature performances from Keith Richards (who conceived the event) and Eric Clapton, there are scintillating and hilarious reminisces from Bruce Springsteen and John Lennon. »

It's hard to believe that we were bopping our heads 20 years ago to songs like "I'll Be Missing You," "The Freshmen," and "Coco Jamboo," to name a few (shout out if you remember the last one well, like I do). It was a magical year for the music industry, in that 1997 was still a time where every single genre was invited to the table and brought back for seconds and thirds. Make sure you're hungry, because we're about to serve you some delicious throwback jams that will leave you full - and jonesing for that old CD player you left at your parents' house years ago. In the mid-'90s, we saw a huge decline in what is considered "pop" music as the grunge and hip-hop scene made its way to the top of the charts and left the pop princes and princesses in the dust. A year before, in »

You never heard of the Great Glasgow Ice Cream Wars? They weren’t exactly Armageddon, and the gentle director Bill Forsyth makes a radio personality’s involvement with two competing ice cream companies more of a plunge into amiable drollery. If you like Gregory’s Girl and Local Hero you’ll understand the odd, unhurried attitude of this oddball show from 1984.

For the first time ever, the 2017 Primetime Emmys will hand out an award for Outstanding Music Supervision, acknowledging the creative contributions made by the music supervisors on TV series. It’s an award that’s long overdue; music supervision is an often misunderstood art form thought to be as simple as pulling songs off an iPod. “There’s so much work that goes into it that you don’t see on the screen,” says Amanda Krieg Thomas, »
Throughout Wonder Woman, director Patty Jenkins repeatedly puts up a stop sign right before things could take a sexual turn in the female-led superhero film. Doing so safeguards both star Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman's image as a respected, feminist icon and shields the princess of Themyscira from becoming yet another filmic sex object. For starters, Jenkins eliminated the stars around Wonder Woman's groin region. Jenkins also turns down the volume on the Wonder Woman outfit; by dulling and muting the loud hues from her comic book past, Jenkins allows the DC queen's personality to bring color to the big screen. Jenkins presents Wonder Woman tastefully in other ways. There's no denying that Gadot makes a drop-dead gorgeous Wonder Woman, but her beauty is continually bested by her bravery and smarts. Moments come and go in the film that could easily be sexually charged, but Jenkins defuses them before our very eyes. Below are four Wonder Woman scenes that might have been very different if they had been directed by a man - or to generalize less, a director who catered to the male gaze. RelatedGal Gadot Gushes About Patty Jenkins in Badass Behind-the-Scenes Wonder Woman Footage 1. When Wonder Woman Eats an Ice Cream Cone For the First Time Wonder Woman gleefully grabs a vanilla ice cream cone in the film. Her eyes light up as she licks the dessert with pleasure but only for a split second. The goddess appears like a child trying a lollipop for the first time instead of a woman putting her mouth on a phallic object. Had someone else shot this scene, the innocence could have been lifted with an extreme close-up and a lengthening of the shot. "You should be very proud!" the incognito warrior princess praises the ice cream man as she shakes the cone at him. It is an adorable, stainless scene but one that could have easily been turned into something far more provocative had the camera been in the hands of a male director. 2. When Wonder Woman Has Sex With Steve In the film, it can be safely assumed that Diana and Us Air Force Captain Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) make love as snow falls gently outside the place they're staying at for the night. Steve walks Diana to her room as she flashes him "come hither" eyes. The two kiss passionately, when suddenly, the camera transports audiences out of the bedroom and onto the cement pavement outside. There, the audience watches snow fall softly, giving the impression that if lovemaking is going on behind the closed windows, it's happening just as delicately and affectionately as the snowfall making contact with the pavement. This cutaway scene is an example of how Jenkins respects Wonder Woman. She upholds her privacy and leaves what happens behind closed doors up to viewers' interpretations instead of seizing an opportunity to expose Gadot's body. Had someone else directed this scene, it might not have been so soft and gentle. In fact, it likely could have looked like a sex scene straight out of 300. Related9 Male-Led Superhero Films That Wonder Woman Has Already Beaten at the Box Office 3. When Wonder Woman Tries On Multiple Outfits To keep Wonder Woman hidden, Steve takes her to a clothing shop to fish out a new outfit. During the scene, the beautiful Gadot tries on a string of ensembles. What follows is slightly clumsy and fully comical. Firstly, Diana almost strips in front of everyone, unaware of the concept of a dressing room, but Jenkins quickly advances the scene before Diana can take anything off. If the male gaze was ruling the director's chair, it's probable that some skin would have been shown right then and there. The princess even complains that her shirt is "choking her," a relatable, feminist touch that only Jenkins could bring to the film treatment. That small complaint is just one of the subtle details that add to the female mosaic that makes up the modern version of Wonder Woman. To add humor to the scene, Diana is then shown accidentally ripping a pencil skirt while kicking her leg out. She isn't trying to look sexy while shopping - she's trying to kick ass, literally. What made audiences hold their stomachs from laughter could have doubled as prime time to show off an objectified Gadot. 4. When Wonder Woman Reveals Her Iconic Armor Diana introduces the world to Wonder Woman in the most powerful way possible. As she ascends from a ladder into No Man's Land, Diana carries herself like the volcanic force she knows she is. She climbs up the ladder in the film, mirroring the climb of women up the ladder of patriarchy today. The scene places emphasis on her hard-as-nails stare and bulletproof demeanor instead of her killer curves. As she walks toward the warring Germans, she deflects a bullet. Finally, her armor is revealed in full. Had it been meant to feed the male gaze, it might have been ushered in quite differently. Through calculated angling and lighting, Jenkins transforms Wonder Woman's short outfit into a source of power. It's plausible that the same outfit could have been portrayed as a gilded Victoria's Secret one-piece had certain male directors had their way. Yet, luckily for us, we had a female director who made the conscious decision to glorify Wonder Woman's strength over her sex appeal time and again. »

The Institute of Culinary Education (Ice) is one of the largest culinary schools in the world, offering both professional and recreational programs in New York City. Here, Chef Jenny McCoy of Ice’s School of Pastry & Baking Arts shares with People her fresh take on the classic summertime treat: strawberry shortcake ice cream bars.
The strawberry shortcake — one of the most quintessential American desserts — has seen an evolution like no other.

Gwyneth Paltrow isn't holding anything back.

Paltrow, 44, and Martin, 40, finalized their divorce in July 2016, two years after announcing their separation, but the two have remained amicable for their two kids, 13-year-old Apple and 11-year-old Moses. At the time of their separation in 2014, the two referred to the split as a "conscious uncoupling."
"People are coming around. I know it's a dorky term, but it's very worthwhile," Paltrow explains of the quirky term. "I'm always the person who gets s**t at first, but then later people say, 'Hey, maybe »
Changing your skincare routine for the season is just as important as changing your wardrobe. And with summer quickly approaching, it’s time to put your heavyweight creams aside and opt for lighter, gel-like formulas — even if your skin is usually dry.
“In the summer you want more breathability,” N.Y.C. cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Shereene Idriss told PeopleStyle. “You want your skin to be able to breathe through the heat and moisture to avoid the clogging of pores and potential breakouts.”
If you’re wondering how such lightweight formulas pack the same punch as your thick winter cream, it »

Allegedly, First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy made really good waffles. I say “allegedly” not because the waffles attributed to her in various cookbooks aren’t objectively good; they’re actually wonderfully airy and crisp, thanks to an innovative technique involving whipped egg whites and baking powder. But did she ever actually cook or consume the waffles? Does it matter? Didn’t she do enough for her country, between being the exceptionally tolerant wife of a blatantly randy president, the widowed mother of small children expected to bear up beautifully in public after her husband was murdered before her eyes, »

Bob Dylan turns 76 today and we’re ranking Dylan’s 10 best film performances, dating back half a century to 1967. The key word is “performances,” which encompass acting work, concert films, and documentaries. It’s often hard to know when Dylan is acting and when he’s being himself (whoever that is), but whenever the iconic singer-songwriter appears on film, one thing’s for certain: you’re watching a performance.
Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Look Back’ Gets Deluxe Treatment With New Blu-ray Set
For this reason, we’re lumping everything together, ranking the films based on the depth and richness of performance. It was hard not to include the televised 1965 press conference in San Francisco, which sees Dylan effortlessly (and hilariously) shoot down reporters’ attempts to have him label himself, but we limited this list to feature-length films. Don’t look for Todd Haynes’ “I’m Not There” or any »

Hold up: These outfits are really cute and really expensive. As the countdown continues for the birth of Beyoncé's twins, the "Crazy in Love" singer decided to share new photos of her Mother's Day celebration on Instagram Friday night. In the candid pictures, Beyoncé and her daughter Blue Ivy Carter were spotted wearing hydrangea-print chiffon dresses by Dolce & Gabbana during their visit to the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles. While a private group tour for up to 10 people costs $1,500, Beyoncé's dress for the afternoon outing came to a whopping $5,395. This isn't the first time the "Irreplaceable" singer has shown off some designer looks during »
It was a pretty sweet day for the Kardashian family!
Kourtney and daughter Penelope certainly enjoyed the museum's iconic life-size sprinkle pool, while Kim and daughter North took a call in the bubblegum pink room. It appeared the group was filming the visit for season 14 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so we'll have to wait and see if fans will get more of their adventures there!

In-n-Out Burger may be a favorite among celebrities, but the rest of America has a new love affair.
According to the 2017 Harris Poll, which measures public opinion across various industries like food, travel, homeware and media, the country’s new favorite burger chain is Five Guys—ousting the California-based eatery into second place after two years on top.
Both restaurants are notable for their rather simplistic offering compared to other fast food chains that increasingly rely on outrageous new menu items. At In-n-Out, you can get burgers, shakes, fries and grilled cheeses while Five Guys also tacks on hot dogs and BLTs. »
