Instagram redesigns its website
Instagram is introducing a new website layout beginning Tuesday, and rolling out to all users until the end of the week. Bigger photos and a grid-like pattern allow for a cleaner and more spacious display when looking at a computer or mobile device. The cover photo montage has been done away with, and rounded profile pictures added. The goal of this redesign was to make Instagram’s site more closely resemble the app, creating a more consistent and visually pleasing user experience. {The Verge

Lancome releases new photo with Lupita Nyong'o
Academy Award winner and natural beauty Lupita Nyong'o was named a Lancome ambassadress last April, and has since appeared in many ads for the cosmetic brand’s foundation, lipstick and shadow products.

J.W. Anderson puts a penis on i-D
Provocative ready-to-wear designer J.W. Anderson designed one of 11 covers for the 35th anniversary issue of i-D. The cover, which is in tune with his unique and often androgynous aesthetic, is a simple portrait of a few common items one might find in their pants: a pocket knife, a pocket watch, oh, and a penis. {Fashion Copious

Karlie Kloss makes everyone love her even more
The 22-year old model has dipped her toes in a variety of projects including charity work, coding and, if those "Zoolander 2" rumors are true, acting. She is one of the most likeable Victoria's Secret Angels and BFFs with Taylor Swift. Now, she answers all the questions (with cartoons, no less) that we wish we could ask her over drinks. {T Magazine}

Laverne Cox makes another statement
Transgender actress and kick-ass woman Laverne Cox is receiving another honor following last year's history-making Emmy nomination and iconic Time cover. Madame Tussauds will create a waxwork of Cox, which will become the first replica of a transgender woman in the entire collection. Her statue will be on display at the San Francisco location during the city’s Pride Month in June. Win. {Dazed Digital}
