Your kisses are getting digitized! Burberry teamed up with Google to launch Burberry Kisses, which uses Kiss Recognition Technology—yes, that’s a real thing now—to digitally blow your real kiss print to anywhere in the world. “Burberry Kisses began with the idea of giving technology a bit of heart and soul, and using it to unite the Burberry family across the world – by telling a story that makes the digital personal,” said Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey. You can try it on the go by imprinting your pout on your phone or tablet or at your desk by capturing your kiss on a webcam or computer camera (best experienced through Google Chrome). Then, send your kiss to your pals—the site features a real-time interactive map using Google Earth and Street View that tracks every kiss sent all around the world, and showcases which cities are receiving and sending the most kisses.

Neil Patrick Harris did it again! The star of How I Met Your Mother hosted the Tony Awards for the fourth time last night, and his singing, dancing, rapping, and joking got the audience crowd to their feet inside Radio City Music Hall for the 67th anniversary of Broadway’s biggest night. But before his opening number ever kicked off, the actors, producers, playwrights, and presenters all made their way down the red carpet set up on the sidewalk of Sixth Avenue. The guest list offered a mix of theater-loving style stars (like presenter Scarlett Johansson in Saint Laurent), best-dressed plus-ones (like Debra Messing in Matthew Christopher supporting her nominated partner Will Chase and Sienna Miller in Burberry supporting her beau Tom Sturridge), and Broadway vets (like Judith Light, who handpicked her white Zac Posen gown straight from the designer). “He is remarkable,” Light said of Posen. “The first time I met him, he was so kind and so sweet to me, he really blew me away.” And she blew away Tony voters—Light walked away with the Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her role as Faye in The Assembled Parties.

Emily Blunt is decked out in metallic Burberry Prorsum as InStyle’s May cover girl! The no-nonsense star lives up to her name in our new exclusive interview, as she gives us her unfiltered thoughts on her style, her husband, and what she really thinks of acting in Hollywood. “I see Hollywood as a bubble that you pop your head into every now and again,” she told us. “I never get fully immersed in it.” But when she does—she goes full tilt. Up next, you’ll see her alongside Colin Firth in the bittersweet odd-couple movie Arthur Newman (out April 26) and her first action flick, co-starring Tom Cruise of all people, All You Need Is Kill (out March 2014). In the meantime, she has another co-star, her real-life partner, husband John Krasinski. “Meeting John really changed my life,” she said. “When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible. There’s someone behind you on your good days, and someone in front of you on your bad days.” And that’s not all—be sure to get the full interview and see more photographs when the new May issue hits newsstands—or download it to your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet—starting this Friday, April 19.

To Oblivion, and beyond! That’s where Olga Kurylenko and her co-star Tom Cruise have been promoting their action-packed sci-fi flick, which hits theaters nationwide April 19. And for the movie’s global red carpet tour, the 33-year-old Ukrainian born actress has proven herself a darling of the fashion world, with some of the biggest labels dressing her every appearance. In Moscow, she picked a lilac Elie Saab Haute Couture floral embroidered dress; in Dublin, she went sleek with an emerald column by Roland Mouret; in London, she donned a black lace-trim Marchesa; and in Los Angeles, she picked a plunging embroidered satin Burberry design. And her love of fashion is newly-acquired: “I now understand this thing about taking care of yourself before leaving the house, no matter where you go,” she told InStyle last spring. Even when she travels, too: “I was getting ready to leave [on a flight], and my boyfriend asked me, ‘Why don’t you put on sneakers?’ And I said, ‘No way!’ I had on high-heeled boots. Heels were something that just didn’t exist for me before. But now I feel like I’m a woman.”
