Supermodel Gigi Hadid has a schedule packed full of flights and photoshoots. In-between trips from New York to LA, Gigi invites Vogue to IMG’s offices where she takes a shot at answering 73 Questions. Gigi tells us who her girl-crush is, shows off her boxing skills and ranks her favorite Taylor Swift songs.
Beyoncé Knowles, beloved queen of the late-night surprise social media reveal (Lemonade, anyone?), has done it again: this time revealing the birth date, names, and first photo of her twins, all in one go. The new babies, Rumi and Sir Carter, are shown cradled in the superstar’s arms as she strikes a Botticelli-esque pose in an open, flouncy robe and sea-foam–colored veil; behind her, a box hedge frames a triumphant flower arch (strikingly similar to the one from her pregnancy announcement) and what appears to be an open horizon at what could very well be the singer’s rumored rented Malibu estate.
The Instagram post, which went up a little after 1:00 a.m. EST, had reached nearly 5 million likes in the five hours that followed. Much could (and will) be made of the fact that in these photos—versus the various shots from her pregnancy announcement back in February—Beyoncé’s face is effectively unveiled by the positioning of her headpiece, or that her robe exposes a bit of taut-looking tummy(a mere month after giving birth), or her Birth of Venus pose, or that she is the latest among celebrities taking their family’s privacy (and publicity strategy) into their own hands by strategically metering out where and when they will be seen. But the most important part is undoubtedly that mother and babies are happy, well, and already killing the social media game. And honestly, would we have expected any less?

H&M designer collaborations are always highly anticipated. There was Balmain, Kenzo, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander Wang, Versace — the list goes on. If you were wondering who was next to step up to the plate, well, that would be — wait for it — Erdem! You know, the London-based fashion house that’s dressed everyone from Keira Knightley to Kate Middleton herself. Erdem is joining forces with H&M to launch a collection for women, and for the first time, a collection for men too (grab your SO for this one!). The pieces will be in select stores and online on Nov. 22. Although that is still, unfortunately, months away, we can already imagine the pretty, romantic dresses and tops that’ll be offered.

From statement furs to velvet everything, this is what’s trending for fall 2016.
#1. VELVET !!!
If you aren’t feeling yourself already, come fall 2016 you definitely will. The fabric of the season is so wonderfully soft you’ll want to touch these chic pieces constantly.

#2. THE NAVY OVERCOAT
Pre-fall’s nautical trend continues strong into fall 2016 with Navy-inspired calf and ankle-length coats. If you’re on the shorter side wear yours with heels to keep it from swallowing
#3. SCHOOLGIRL JUMPERS
Longing for the days when getting dressed meant putting on a simple uniform made up of a pinafore and top? Well come fall 2016, you’re in luck. This was the go-to combo for everyone from Jil Sander Navy to Suno.
As seen at Tomas Maier, Each x Other, Trademark, Jason Wu, Suno, and Jil Sander Navy
#4. WEIRD WAYS TO HOLD YOUR BAG
Carry your bag any other way than you’re actually supposed to: around your neck, under your armpit, wrapped around your wrist, or on your hip.
As seen at Prada, Céline, Proenza Schouler, and Céline
#5. CROSS BODY FUR STOLES
Designers have always had a love affair with luxe fur stoles, but the asymmetrical draping styling trick makes it different than ever before.
#6. STATEMENT FURS
This season’s furs (both faux and real) are not for the meek. Be prepared for all eyes to be on you when you walk into a room wearing one of these numbers.
As seen at Salvatore Ferragamo, Derek Lam, Fendi, Oscar de la Renta and Rodarte
#7. PINK & YELLOW
It’s not often that designers inject such bright colors into their fall collections, but this season a few brands really went for it. The interesting color combination is a welcome contrast to the darker hues we regularly see during the cold weather months.
As seen at Sies Marjan, Brock Collection, Creatures of Comfort, Delpozo, and Ulla Johnson
#8. RENAISSANCE WOMAN
Velvet, bell sleeves, corsets and more make up a uniform fit for a modern day madrigal singer.

Who says you need an evening coat just for dressy occasions? ELLE editors, including both our fashion director and market director, absolutely loved this fresh and unexpected pairing.

Shine on, ladies! With these sparkly coats, dresses, and skirts it should be more than easy to do.

#11. EMBELLISHED GUITAR STRAPS
Bags really got the rockstar treatment this season with extra wide embellished straps that make carrying yours just a little easier.

For those days when you need just the tiniest cover up possible, designers present you with these capelets. A little retro, but also very chic.
As seen at A Detacher, Brandon Maxwell, Christian Dior, Burberry, MSGM, and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini
#13. THE STATEMENT CHOKER
We’ll always have love in our hearts for the thin, velvet ribbon chokers of the ’90s, but this season it’s all about major statement chokers that fully cover your neck.
As seen at Lanvin, Loewe, Balmain, and Dries Van Noten
You’re in luck, luxury comfort is still key for fall 2016. Snuggle up in options brought to you by everyone from Lacoste to Anthony Vaccarrello.

Shop 11 of our favorites, now.
