MUSIC

Beats by ‘Ye

The latest album from Theophilus London, Vibes (out Nov. 4), finds the genre-bending Brooklyn rapper teaming up with two icons: Kanye West executive-produced the album, while legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld oversaw its visuals.

TELEVISION

Hoop Schemes

BOOKS

So in her ninth cookbook, Make It Ahead, Garten offers up dozens of recipes, from Italian frittatas to dog biscuits, that you can cook for the next day–or days after. Above, a by-the-numbers look at Garten’s career.

HER NEW SONGS FIZZ AND CRACKLE WITH ELECTRICITY AND SELF-AWARE WIT.
