Summer might be coming to an end, but this season’s movie premieres are still going strong! This weekend, the band One Direction‘s biopic One Direction: This is Us (starring Louis, Zayn, Niall, Liam, and Harry) hit theaters nationwide fueling fan-frenzy, while Olivia Wilde‘s comedy Drinking Buddies (along with Jack Johnson, Anna Kendrick, and Ron Livingston) brought in laughs on August 23rd. This holiday weekend will give you the perfect chance to catch up on all the movies you may have missed! Plus, click the photo to relive all of the summer’s biggest movies premiere moments.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Fashion Week! In preparation for the industry’s busiest time of year, Pinterest has created a hub to showcase Fashion-Week-focused style boards. InStyle, along with over 100 top designers (like Michael Kors) and style brands, has teamed up with the platform to bring you a behind-the-scenes look into New York Fashion Week, including beauty tutorials and street style inspiration, exclusive to #NYFW. But Pinterest isn’t limiting itself to just New York. The hub is making room for soon-to-be-launched boards to highlight shows in London, Milan, and Paris.
Follow along as we pin our way through every event, after-party, and embellished mani, and go all “fashion editor” on your own boards by repinning the looks you love most. We got a head start with our faves from last season—so you can start today!

It seems like the entire world is waiting with bated breath to see what designers have in store for us at the white tents this year. While sneak peeks of their spring/summer 2014 collections are strictly off-limits, we did get a glimpse of what they have been up to during the weeks leading up to New York Fashion Week, inside the studio and out. Just like you, they have been soaking in the summer sun, chilling shoreside…and even working. Read up on their vacation anecdotes and see some Kodak-worthy snapshots, including the Marchesa girls taking a dip in St. Lucia, Karen Walker teaching her little one how to swim, Deborah Lloyd (of Kate Spade) taking a joy ride upstate and more.
