Teen Vogue just put 3 women of color on their cover — and other magazines should take note

On Wednesday, Teen Vogue magazine unveiled Imaan Hammam, Lineisy Montero and Aya Jones, fresh-faced and gorgeous in a series of photos — including the cover photos — by photographer Daniel Jones. And while their faces look calm and content, they may represent a sea of change.

One Direction on Their Next Album, New Fragrance, and Sharing a Single Stick of Deodorant on TourGuess which one smells like fast food.

by @caseymlewis

Today, One Direction announced their fourth fragrance Between Us, which smells like apricots, nutmeg, and, according to this characteristically off-the-wall commercial, Niall Horan’s tears. 

 You’ll have to wait until August to douse yourself in the new scent, but in the meantime, you can smell exactly like Liam Payne, who called in from London to talk about his favorite cologne, his love of Chinese takeout, and his bandmates’ communal deodorant. You know, the important stuff.

TV: What’s your favorite smell in the entire world?

LP: “You know when you order Chinese food, and you first open the bag? That’s my favorite smell. You get takeaway Chinese, and you’re so hungry, and you’re just like, ‘Oh my god, this is the best thing that could happen to me right now.’”

TV: Mmmmm General Tso’s. How do you guys manage to smell good when you’re constantly touring (and downing egg rolls)?

LP: “We don’t manage to smell that good. In the morning, the first thing everyone asks for is deodorant, but deodorant is the one thing you always forget, especially when you’re traveling. It’s all about rubbing everyone else’s deodorant on, and then trying to hold on to it as long as you can without them taking it back. When they ask if you borrowed it, you have to say, 'Oh, I gave it to so-and-so.’”

TV: So One Direction shares one stick of deodorant?

LP: “Well, yeah, because everyone forgets but then there will be one person who remembers. That person is usually me, actually, and I’m the one who gets rubbed off. And that’s really not fair, is it?”

TV: Since the name of your new fragrance is Between Us, how would you finish that sentence right now?

LP: “Between us, I really want Chinese right now.”

TV: This one’s noticably more grown-up than the other fragrances. How haveyou guys grown up?

LP: “Mentally, more than anything, we’ve grown up—although we are still very immature. We’re learning to deal with different things that attack us every day. Being in this position, there’s obviously huge pressure all the time. There’s been a lot of big changes in the band, and we have to grow past those different obstacles. To be honest with you, we’re stronger than ever, which is amazing.”

TV: Speaking of big changes, what can we expect from your new music as a four-man band?

LP: “It’s just pure greatness. I don’t mean to sound arrogant when I say that, but it’s just my favorite stuff we’ve ever done. I was listening to it with Sophia this morning, actually. One of songs has a different girl’s name in the title, but it’s fine—she didn’t take any offense. We’re just ready to go with it. It’s going to be ace, I promise you that.”

TV: Other than your own stuff, what have you been listening to?

LP: “You know when you get a new phone, and you haven’t updated your iTunes, so your music is a bit boring? All I’ve got is Chris Brown’s album. That one song, I don’t know what it’s called, [sings] 'I just wanna hold you, all night in bed’? That song is so sick.”

Lightning round, “Between Us” edition: What do the guys smell like?

Harry: “Fresh cotton—yes, fresh linens.”
Louis: “Fast food, I would regrettably say. And sometimes when we go on stage, he smells like hairspray and fast food.”
Niall: “Green fields. He’s always on the golf course. He’s the outdoorsy one.”
Liam: “Me? I have a nice little collection of fragrances. Chanel Blue is what I smell like today.”
