ELLE CANADA × PRIYANKA

KO Média is excited to unveil the summer issue of ELLE Canada featuring “Canada’s First drag Superstar” Priyanka. The Indo-queer West Indian queen talks about leaving her job to be on the first season of Canada’s Drag Race, filming her debut EP’s lead single and why the show was exactly what Canadians needed last year. “A show like Canada’s Drag Race lets us see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was like ‘At least we have this. At least we’re all in this together.’” After performing across the country, she appreciates the warm welcomes and the support she’s received. “Getting that audience to come out and see you is so important because that’s what being Canadian is all about. We’re not a melting pot; we’re a fruit salad!”

Priyanka will also be hosting Pride Toronto’s 2021 digital parade, in honor of the massive and inclusive fest’s 40 year anniversary – just one of Elle’s front row tips for what’s hot this summer. Other recommendations include Tiffany’s engagement rings for men; flattering Canada-made, limited edition swimwear for all body types from Nettle’s Tale; and the most natural “no-makeup makeup” from Bobbi Brown’s new line.

Speaking of summer fun, if you love musicals, we’ve got the inside scoop on the breakout movie of the season, with “In the Heights” star Melissa Barrera dishing on going from telenovelas to Hollywood, working with the film’s triple-threat team (including Hamilton’s Anthony Ramos) and what the film means for the Latinx community.

Film buffs will also love our behind-the-scenes look at some of the world’s most reputable costume designers, from the dichromatic wardrobes of the Capulets in Romeo + Juliet to the 15 identical coats sewn for Ryan Gosling (and his Blade Runner 2049 stuntman).

In fashion, it’s the summer of sex, with hot days and sweaty nights driving the desire for sexy, slinky strings criss-crossed over exposed waists and diaphanous layers revealing bra tops and thongs. Meanwhile, the ‘70s are back, with flared jeans, old-school knits, happy face accessories (think 24-karat-gold-plated earrings)… and the retro rise of roller skating, as championed by fashionistas including Zendaya and Dua Lipa – complete with high-heel skates.

In beauty, we tell you how to get that healthy summer glow, and talk to an expert about the best sunscreens (and what most people are doing wrong when they apply them!).

And we take a closer look at ourselves, delving into body hair stigma (why exactly are we still shaving our legs again?); how social media and the desire for a perfect smile is leading to a rise in dental veneers; and whether we’re getting addicted to isolation. Instead of FOMO, could the end of the pandemic trigger the fear of missing in?

The summer issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on June 21th, 2021. Read the digital issue HERE.

Reebok × House of Ninja – Fierceness Isn’t Born. It’s Made

Reebok and Iconic Ballroom ‘House of Ninja’ Show That “Fierceness Isn’t Born. It’s Made” to Celebrate Pride 2021

Today, Reebok releases their 2021 Pride campaign film, “Fierceness Isn’t Born. It’s Made,” starring Iconic Ballroom House of Ninja in tandem with the launch of this year’s All Types of Love Pride collection. The collection was designed by Reebok’s LGBTQIA+ employee community, Colorful Soles, who partnered with House of Ninja to amplify the collection through their own legendary ballroom perspective and history.

With this year’s collection, Colorful Soles wanted to pay homage to ballroom culture and what it has brought to not only the LGBTQIA+ community, but humanity on a global scale. The culture has inspired so many trends of colloquialisms, fashion, art, music, and most importantly advocacy, which is why Willi Ninja created House of Ninja in the 1980’s to be a safe-house for members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

In the campaign film, House of Ninja’s Archie Burnett, Javier Madrid, Aisha Murray, and Elizabeth Rivera illustrate the craft of movement that makes up ballroom culture which continues to be a safe haven for many of the LGBTQIA+ community. “It is easy to walk on the dark side, you have to fight for the light. And that takes work. Fierceness isn’t born, it’s made,” said Archie Burnett.

This unisex sized collection includes Pride flag inspired design details as well as a Progress Pride Flag product tag. Each of the shoes in the range includes the All Types of Love manifesto on the tongue or sock liner.  The footwear collection features: Classic Leather ($85), Club-C ($85), InstaPump Fury OG ($170), Zig Kinetica II ($120), Nano X1 ($130), and Floatride Energy 3.0 ($100). The Pride flag inspired apparel collection includes: Oversized Tee with reactive UV color changing ink ($35), Crop workout Tank ($35), Bike shorts ($40), and Hoodie ($55) all featuring the Progress Pride Flag and All Types of Love manifesto on the product label.

As part of its ongoing mission to create an inclusive community of acceptance, Reebok continues to support the LGBTQIA+ community both internally and externally and recognizes that it must start with the youth. So, in addition to a full unisex adult size range, this year’s collection also includes unisex kids Pride Classic Leather for two size ranges: Children ($55) and Infant ($40)!

And, to honor, uplift, and affirm the TGNCI community, Reebok is donating $75,000 to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, an organization working to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence.

The full collection is now available to purchase on Reebok’s website.
