Pete Davidson’s Watch Has BDE, by Which We Mean…Beautiful Dial Energy

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we’ll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.

A year and a half ago, during the summer of Pete Davidson and BDE, the comedian was captured by the paparazzi in an outfit I’ll forever associate with that particular wavelength of energy. He’s wearing a cotton-candy pink Thrasher T-shirt and a colorful pair of Bape’s Shark shorts (For too many guys, this used to be the absolute Everest of style). In the picture I’ll think about as I take my dying breaths, Davidson is engaged in a stretch and pushing his pelvis out. In the time since, a lot has changed for Davidson, including his Facebook Relationship Status (it’s complicated), IMDB page (he has two movies coming out this year), and his style.

How to Navigate Every Kind of Resortwear Dress Code

Full discretion: I’m a member of the unfortunate community of individuals who absolutely cannot properly pack for vacation. At a minimum, I spend nearly three months of the year traveling, yet I haven’t mastered the art of curating a mini wardrobe that’s weather-appropriate, event appropriate, and full of all the essentials.

I once packed my most fashionable assortment of items for a trip to Dubai, only to find out that none of my pieces suited the strict dress code. That being said, resort dress codes … Read More

Three Generations of Skincare Experts Share Their Secrets

When was the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics founded, and what was the motivation behind starting this company? 

AH: The Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics was founded by my mother, Catherine Hinds, in 1979. She was an early advocate for a simple skincare routine, and after spending time in Europe, where she saw women taking care of their skin, she felt that there should be a better esthetic program that took care of the skin. My mother opened Cyclax of London, a heritage beauty salon from the UK, in her hometown of Boston in 1965 (which was later renamed Catherine Hinds in 1967). She pioneered exfoliation as part of the at-home routine with her famous “grains,” which were one of the first-to-market manual exfoliators. 

As her salon became increasingly successful, she turned herself into a female beauty entrepreneur—an unfamiliar term for the times. Wanting to spread her knowledge and
