Ahead, 10 Vogue editors share what they’re buying from Amazon Prime Day this year, from Bose headphones to Fitbits.

After spending so much time at home, I’m buying new sheets for every bedroom. If the election does not go my way, I may not get out of bed for the foreseeable future.

My 12-year-old son has discovered my Bose noise-canceling headphones. When remote school is over for the day, he takes them off my dining-room table-slash-desk and proceeds to sing along to Juice Wrld at the top of his lungs. I need to get him his own pair, then stash them away somewhere until Christmas. By then I will know all the words to Legends Never Die, just like he does.

I just moved into my first solo apartment, and the roommate I miss most might just be the sparkling-water maker. After a few years of never actually owning one myself, it’s time that I get one for my own place. It’s narrow and won’t take up too much space, which is exactly what I need out of an appliance—not to mention it will prevent me from buying individual bottles or packs of seltzer going forward.

Since I began working from home, I’ve found myself using my Apple AirPods constantly…and misplacing them just as regularly! I’ve finally realized it’s worth the investment to own two pairs—one for my workspace and one for my bag when I’m on the go.

I’ve been looking for a new hair dryer for some time now and have had my eyes set on this sleek T3 version in crisp white. In the past, I’ve always bought under-$30 versions but much to my hair’s demise. Split ends and damaged hair are something I’m hoping to change now with a new investment dryer. At 30% off right now, it’s time for me to take the plunge and say goodbye to frizzy-hair days.

With all the meals I’ve been making at home, I’m looking for anything to help inspire me to add something new to my repertoire. I’ve had my eye on an air fryer for a while, and now seems like the perfect time to take the plunge.

I love these ice globes because they help with de-puffing and sculpting my face. Great to use if I wake up tired as the cooling aspect gives me an energy boost.

I am currently in a steps challenge with a group of friends. I am interested in this Fitbit to help me better track my daily steps and heart rate and even DJ my walks with a built-in Alexa. Once I have the Fitbit, I’ll need the limited-edition Victor Glemaud strap to go with it!

My skin has been struggling over the past few months of mask wearing. So I’m going back to basics with a tried-and-true moisturizing sunscreen that has been really easy on my skin in years past.

I recently moved into a new apartment, so I’m stocking up on small items, like these storage containers, to decorate my place. The gold lids are exactly what my black-and-white bathroom needs for a little pop.
The all-new and opulent Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is still in its testing phase, although its unveiling should take place in the coming months seen as how the brand new S-Class is already with us.
While there are different types of S-Class prototypes still out there, like the Mercedes-AMG S63 for example, we’re pretty confident that this particular vehicle, spotted by one of our readers in Germany, is the long-wheelbase Maybach flagship.
The biggest clue isn’t actually the size of the rear pillar, but the cutout of the rear door, which is straighter than on the regular S-Class, whose rear door curves around the rear wheel arch due to its smaller size. It also lacks the third rear-window that’s incorporated on the S-Class’ door.
Unlike its shorter wheelbase siblings, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class might actually retain a V12 engine, although with a mild-hybrid system. The reason we say “might” is because the 2021 Maybach GLS is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 550 horses and 538 lb-ft (729 Nm) of torque, and it’s the GLS 600, not 500 or 550.
Powertrains aside, expect the Maybach saloon to feature all of the new S-Class’ driver assist functions, including its Level 3 automated driving capabilities. The carmaker’s Lidar-powered Drive Pilot system will debut next year and will work in both heavy traffic situations as well as on suitable motorways in Germany.
Inside, it should boast a similar setup to the GLS, with two rear seats separated by a large console at the back and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster at the front, paired with a 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen display in the middle.
As for pricing, since the current Mercedes-Maybach S-class starts off from around $170,000, we expect more of the same from the all-new car. If the carmaker keeps doing two separate variants like before, then the flagship model will probably cost north of $200,000.
