After seeing her in the clothing campaign earlier this year, Violeta by Mango has released its summer 2016 swimsuit ads starring Candice Huffine. The plus-sized beauty poses in a mix of beach cover-ups, skimpy bikinis and one-piece swimsuits for the sun-drenched images.

Exuding serious vacation vibes, the bold colors, worldly prints and tassel embellishments were inspired by the French Riviera. For beach cover-ups, Candice models everything from denim to sheer tunics and relaxed kimonos.

Earlier this year, we also saw Candice Huffine in Violeta’s spring 2016 clothing campaign. Photographed by Sergi Pons in Mallorca, the brunette showed the best of warm weather fashion for curvy girls. From breezy maxi dresses to colorful minis with short hemlines, Candice looked beyond stylish.

CALVIN KLEIN'S SPRING 2016 GLOBAL CAMPAIGN IS INSANELY SEXUAL

Categories:Fashion

If Calvin Klein has one calling card, it's the brand's tendency to release somewhat — nah, overtly — suggestive ad campaigns. That sexuality is hardwired into the brand's DNA, and Calvin Klein, the person, will be the first to admit it. Over the years, we've learned to prepare ourselves for a certain amount of shock-and-awe to be delivered alongside any new campaign imagery (its fall 2015 sexting-themed ads, anyone?). But its latest set is a completely different story. 

As in: These are some sexy photos, folks.

For spring 2016, Calvin Klein tapped a slew of its go-to faces, includingKendall Jenner and Abbey Lee Kershaw, for a wildly NSFW campaign that has been burned in our retinas since we first laid eyes on it on Monday. In one image, above, Jenner poses with a grapefruit that not-so-subtly resembles a part of female anatomy; in another, below, an unnamed model wears a pair of jeans backwards to showcase what Urban Dictionary calls a "belfie." Harley Weir, per recent tradition, photographed the ads, which we saw via Fashion Copious.

The clothes here, as has often been the case with Calvin Klein advertisements, are secondary to the raciness at hand, but are we wrong to say that these images are more provocative than we've seen in the recent past? And as the brand continues to yearn for a younger customer (like casting a Vine star in a denim campaign, for instance), it's clear that it will only continue to pull out all the stops for that age group. Will the label's yet to be named new creative director continue with this vision and steamy branding? And will this particularly sexual campaign live in a digital-only capacity? Calvin Klein didn't immediately respond to our request for comment, but we'll update this post as we learn more.

LESSONS IN PERSONAL STYLE FROM THIS WEEK'S BEST DRESSED, ALESSANDRO MICHELE

Categories:Fashion

The fashion industry elite descended upon New York this week for the Met Gala, and the best-dressed of them all was, hands down, Gucci's Alessandro Michele. 

On Wednesday evening, the creative director hosted a screening of "Odyssey"in a look that could best be described as Pacific Northwest-meets-Gucci. His shirt and pants, while probably from a high-end brand, could have easily been plucked from the Goodwill store on University Way in Seattle — I say this with the utmost admiration, not belittlement — or from a secondhand store around the city. I also want to applaud him for completing the look with a Gucci silk bomber jacket and pink furry hat. That, dear readers, is personal style. 

Then on Thursday night, in celebration of Art Week, Michele stopped by Dover Street Market, where photographer Ari Marcopoulos was present to sign copies of his book "Epiphany." He attended the event in a colorful striped sweater and a burgundy jacket with an embroidered flower and dog. (Evidence below.) Needless to say, it was one of the best looks from this week.

Jennifer Lawrence Stars in Harper’s Bazaar, Talks Having a “Normal Body”

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence takes the spotlight once again on the May 2016 cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, the blonde wears a bold pink lip color as well as Dior Haute Couture top in black. Inside the magazine, Jennifer wears even more styles from Dior Haute Couture including a ruffle adorned dress and top where she flaunts some cleavage.

In her interview, Jennifer opens up about feminism, her taking Hollywood to task for the gender pay gap and more. About being called ‘curvy’ in Hollywood, she says, “I would like us to make a new normal-body type. Everybody says, ‘We love that there is somebody with a normal body!’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like I have a normal body.’ I do Pilates every day. I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person.”

Jennifer continues, “I think we’ve gotten so used to underweight that when you are a normal weight it’s like, ‘Oh, my God, she’s curvy.’ Which is crazy. The bare minimum, just for me, would be to up the ante. At least so I don’t feel like the fattest one.”

HOW TO PULL OFF WHITE JEANS

Categories:Fashion

From L to R: Jesse Kamm, The Row, Levi'sFrom L to R: Jesse Kamm, The Row, Levi's

"Basic" may have adapted a negative connotation in recent years, but there's no shame in seeking advice on theoretically simple sartorial conundrums. In our latest column, "Back to Basics," we're here to guide you through life's most common (and important) fashion and beauty concerns. First up? White denim.

White jeans are right up there with bras and swimsuits on the "annoying and intimidating to shop for" scale. Even the most fit, cellulite-free ladies can have a hard time finding a pair that's flattering, but that doesn't mean it's impossible. Plus, given that a pair of white jeans is one of the most versatile, chic wardrobe staples you can have for this time of year (nothing's better suited for a summer day on which you haven't shaved your legs), once you find the right pair, you'll be living in them. And we're here to help. Below, some things you'll want to consider before shopping, along with some links to our favorite options.

FIND YOUR SILHOUETTE

Chances are you already have a pretty good idea of what pant silhouette looks best on you, but remember that white jeans don't have the strategic whiskering and fading that some other denim has for illusory slimming effects. If you have concerns about how much of your natural shape you want to highlight, go with something that's slim but not clingy. A common mistake is to buy something that's a tad too big so that it's loose, but that won't do you any favors.

There are plenty of slim-legged options that are fitted in the hips and less clingy — and thus less revealing — in the thighs. Look for styles that are labeled "straight leg" or "boyfriend." The slightly high-waisted, vintage-inspired Levi's $128 "Wedgie" in vintage chalk is a current industry favorite. If you're into Levi's but not a high waist, these in "snowdrop selvedge" looked great on a friend of mine recently. If you're fancy and want something super sleek, The Row makes a chic, ankle-grazing option for $550. Less fancy? TryTopshop's $100 boyfriend jeans. Madewell has a great cropped boot-cut option for $128, too.

Another way to go is the of-the-moment high-waisted and cropped, wide-leg or flared silhouette — something that looks (and thus fits) more like a trouser. This will work on most body types, but if you're on the shorter side, we'd suggest avoiding anything extremely wide. For wide-leg, there's Rachel Comey's beloved "Legion" ($345), and Madewell's $128 version. MiH has a nice flared option with a frayed hem for $270. Current/Elliot has one with a subtler flare for $198.

The least forgiving silhouette is going to be a fitted, high-waisted, skinny style. Dhani bought a pair last summer, and while they can look chic, they're pretty much a FUPA disaster after one large meal. If you need something for, say, brunches during which you don't plan to eat anything, or if you just don't give any fucks (which is great!) go for this pair, or these.

PAY ATTENTION TO FABRIC

Unless you're a supermodel or, like, Jules from "Real Housewives of New York," a thicker, stiffer, more selvedge-like denim is your best bet. The Levi's above, for example, are made from a heavyweight denim, which will hold things together without clinging. Anything thin and/or super stretchy is going to put everything you've got on display.

If you're willing to look outside the denim spectrum, you could seek out a softer cotton alternative. One of our favorites is J.Crew's $98 cropped "Teddie pant" in white, which provides good coverage on the legs (though less on the butt). They're also machine washable — i.e., just as low maintenance as jeans. Or, if you're looking for something a little more on-trend, Jesse Kamm's $395, high-waisted, wide-leg pants are a cult favorite.

GET THE RIGHT UNDERGARMENTS

If you still find you need more coverage in the bum area — or if you opt for the J.Crew trousers — we highly recommended buying a pair of these $36 Spanx shaping shorts. Rather than pull everything in, they simply smooth things out. And whatever you choose to wear under your white jeans, make sure it's seamless and nude (as in, the color of your skin) — not white — in tone.Uniqlo's ultra seamless hip-hugger shorts are great if you don't want to go the thong route.
