James Baldwin believed in the power of love, and it was that power that animated his fifth novel and thirteenth book, If Beale Street Could Talk, first released in 1974 and now elegantly adapted for the screen by @moonlightmov
“When I first read the book,” Jenkins says, “I thought it was a commentary on the history of black people in America—that it has always been rooted in suffering and despair, and yet somehow, we found the capacity for love and joy.” At its center are two doting young lovers: Tish (played by @kikilayne
in the film), a pregnant teenager from Harlem, and her fiancé, Fonny (@tdotsteph
), jailed for a rape he did not commit. Tap the link in our bio to meet the two rising stars. Photographed by @tylersphotos

's father, music legend Quincy Jones. “It’s a big happy family and we eat a ton and we have this wonderful father-son jazz duo, an upright bass and piano, perform. It’s really fun,” says Rashida. But this year, the sisters had something a little different in mind: hosting their own event at Rashida’s house. The Jones sisters show us their holiday party prep, and their favorite festive looks, courtesy of @bananarepublic

To call Katie Stout's (@ummmsmile
) Girl lamps a conversation piece would be an understatement. In fact, they couldn't help but spark an exchange last fall, when Amanda Phelan, the textile designer behind the fashion label @phelannnnn
, first met Stout and her Girl lamps at an exhibition. "I just saw them as these aspirational figures," says Phelan, who immediately imagined the "unabashed, body-positive quirky ladies" in a photo shoot with live models. Even though the two designers overlapped at RISD, they hadn't crossed paths until that night, but Phelan cut to the chase and proposed her idea. In a matter of months, this dreamy, painterly project, debuting on Vogue.com, was born. Tap the link in our bio to see more. Photo by @rebekahcampbell
