Why you should not be copying Kareena Kapoor Khan’s motherhood lifestyle blindly

There’s just no stopping Kareena Kapoor Khan — not even pregnancy and subsequently, motherhood. While most women chose to avoid the public eye when sporting a baby bump, Kareena Kapoor Khan was more socially active than ever, from walking the ramp to doing magazine shoots. And just three days after her delivery, Kareena had a party at her home. Unlike her fellow female actresses (Kajol, Ashwarya Rai Bachchan and Rani Mukerji, who took a break from films), Bebo, who delivered in December, was to start shooting next month for Veere…

This Fashion Editor Will Help You Shop Like a Style Insider

When Booth Moore graduated from high school, she didn’t want a car or a EuroRail pass, like most of her friends. Instead, she wanted a southwestern-style blanket coat with silver buttons from Ralph Lauren. She didn’t just want to acquire the coat—she wanted to go buy it herself at the Ralph Lauren Mansion on Madison Avenue. As another graduation gift, one of Moore’s friends drew a picture of her wearing that jacket on the cover of the erstwhile YM magazine, where she interned one summer in high school. To this day, the jacket…

Everything You Need to Know About This Fashion Season

The world is topsy-turvy — on this we all agree. But when down is up and up is down, and everyone is busy looking in all directions at once because so much is going on (Super Bowl! Grammys! Oscars! Trump!), what happens to hemlines? Flux, of course. Fashion is not exempt. Disruption is the overriding trend of the ready-to-wear season. Cities, separation of the sexes, and the very shape of a show are just some of the elements under scrutiny. As fashion month begins in New York on Thursday and…

An Obamacare Repeal Could Hurt You Even If You Get Insurance Through Work. Here’s How

If you get your health insurance at work, you may have brushed off the fight over Obamacare as someone else’s problem. What you may not realize, though, is that the law added new benefits and protections to employer-based health insurance that you may have come to rely on. President Trump and congressional Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare, and both have made moves to begin unraveling significant parts of the law. The path forward is far from clear, but the GOP-controlled Congress is expected to go about dismantling portions of…

Styr’s system of health gadgets exists to sell you supplements

I’m the kind of guy who can always stand to lose a few pounds. The Styr Lab regimen seemed like a great way to do so. When I first saw it at TechCrunch‘s Disrupt event in San Francisco last September, I was genuinely excited to give the fitness-tracking system a try. After three months using the regimen, however, I find myself just as pudgy and unmotivated as I was beforehand. Maybe even more so.

Education Is Not a Marketplace You Can Game With Vouchers

School choice is a terrific slogan and an even better policy—when it works. All parents should have the option of sending their child to a place that is a good fit for that kid. One initiative in the choice movement—charter schools—has made an enormous difference in the lives of millions of children. Currently, more than 2.5 million K-12 kids are enrolled in charters: public schools operating outside the confines of union rules. That’s 5.1% of all public school children, up from just 1.6% ten years ago. Another 500,000 are on…

Republicans: you have to pass our health care plan to find out what’s in it

The most ill-advised remark of the fight to pass Obamacare arguably came from then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy,” she said. That “fog of controversy” bit — which is usually dropped from recitations of Pelosi’s quote — reveals what she was actually saying, which was that once the fight over the law’s passage died down, the American people would find there was quite a lot to like in it. But Republicans…
