Naomi Osaka is now the highest-paid female athlete in history, reports Forbes. Osaka, 22, earned $37.4 million in the past 12 months from prize money and endorsements, which is $1.4 million more than Serena Williams made.

With that number, Osaka has set an all-time record for what a female athlete has earned in a single year. Maria Sharapova previously held the record when she earned $29.7 million in 2015.

Forbes also reports that this is the first time since 2016 that two women have made the rank of the 100 highest-paid athletes. In September 2o18, Osaka beat Williams in an emotional U.S. Open women’s final: Williams received three code violations...

7 Bikini Styles That Will Be Everywhere This Summer

While one-piece swimsuits have experienced a renaissance as of late, nothing will usurp the iconic bikini. First popularized by the likes of Bridgette Bardot, Rita Hayworth, and Ava Gardner, this timeless French style has been around since the 1940s.

But the humble two-piece has come a long way since its inception. You can now buy a bikini in every color, cut, and pattern imaginable. Designers are also embracing mix-and-match pieces, making this once-revealing style more wearable than ever. Pair a triangle bikini top with high-waisted bottoms, cheeky string bottoms with a full-coverage top, or even mix and match patterns and fabrics. The sky’s the limit.

The name Victor Casale is likely to ring a bell for just about every Canadian. In case it doesn’t, here’s a quick recap on why he’s a man to know: he was the chief chemist and managing director of R&D at MAC when the brand began, then he went on to co-create Cover FX and now he’s the CEO of MOB Beauty. In sum, he’s kind of a big deal in the beauty industry – and now, the Canadian chemist has leant his expertise to Crayola to help reimagine the art brand’s skin tone colour palette in a shade inclusive new 24-piece Colours of the World crayons collection.

The new collection of crayons is the most representative of a variety of skin tones in the brand’s history...

How Often Do You Really Need To Change Your Pajamas Or Sweats?

In general, it’s easier to get away with re-wearing clothes like pajamas and sweats more often when it’s colder out, but with hot weather arriving, the sweat is about to get turned up a notch. If you’ve been doing yoga, walking around your home, or doing anything else that might cause you to sweat frequently (and let’s be honest, summer weather is here), it’s also a good idea to change into a different set of clothing to stay comfy and clean.

Steve Jobs Wore a Cheap Watch: These Are the Affordable Watches Celebrities Love

There is no better figure to start a story about affordable watches with than Steve Jobs and his watch, both of which followed the Think Different approach. Because in the world of the celebrity watch—where a Rolex Submariner worth thousands and thousands of dollars can seem austere—there is no better counterprogramming than a super-affordable timepiece. Billionaire CEOs like Jobs are actually no stranger to practical cheap watches. And the rest of the figures on this list all come at affordable pieces for seemingly different reasons. Tyler, the Creator squeezes joy out of confounding people, John Mayer is an equal opportunity collector, and Barack Obama’s watch might convince the public he is a guy anyone could grab a beer, and then maybe go shopping, with...

What Are Your Freckles Trying to Tell You?

First things first, freckles are normal. Along with hair makeovers and baby bumps, the barefaced freckle reveal has become an Instagram moment. Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, Kylie Jenner, and Bella Hadid have all shared theirs to fanfare. Kesha even used her reveal to send a message of self-love in the new year.

A smattering of freckles feels youthful and sweet, like the signature of a pretty make-under, but, one wonders, where do they come from? “Freckles are a result of melanin overproduction as your skin tries to protect you from the sun,” explains Los Angeles–area dermatologist Anni...

Degrassi Alum Sarah Barrable-Tishauer’s Dance, Dance Revolution

As DJ Me Time, she’s disrupting dancefloor culture in more ways than one.

Ask any introvert who’s been so carried away by a killer groove that she’s abandoned her inhibitions and busted a move in the middle of a crowded floor: At its core, dance music is about tapping into some sort of primal impulse. So it’s one of the great ironies of club culture that the tracks that spark maximum joy (and countless carpool karaoke sessions) for so many—that is, singalong pop songs— are considered kryptonite to DJs. “There’s a degree of seriousness that goes along with DJing in the dance-music community,” explains Sarah Barrable-Tishauer, a former Degrassi: The Next Generation star (fans will r...

I Have Nowhere to Be, So I Let My Husband Dress Me for a Week

Welcome to Weekday Wardrobe, a series in which one Who What Wear editor or staffer will snap a pic of their 9-to-5 look each day and break down where you can shop it all to inspire your own everyday style.

When I met my now-husband, Nico, 16 years ago, one thing was clear: We had very different views on style. I, for one, grew up loving clothes, shoes, jewelry, shopping, and putting together outfits for literally everything. Nico on the other hand? Let’s just say he considered pajama bottoms (that were five sizes too big) to be totally acceptable to wear in public. The horror!

Despite our sartorial differences, I still fell for the guy. And now, after being together for close to 13 years, I joke that I’ve created a monster. A monster with impeccable taste and style, that is...
