It’s a given that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby is going to be one of the most spoiled children ever to crawl the Earth. Not because his or her parents are out of touch with reality, because they’re stupid rich dagnabbit and so are their friends — why shouldn’t that tyke be spoilt to the core? The latest gift bestowed upon Baby Z? Oh, it was just a $5,200 pink Swarovski crystal bathtub from pal Kelly Rowland, because, oops, she accidentally revealed the sex of the couple’s baby. Read more…
Is there any reason not to love Kate Winslet? She’s gorgeous, clever, and charming, not to mention one of the most compelling actresses in movies today. Kate also saved Richard Branson’s mother from a fire, making her a veritable saint. Fans of the British actress will also know that she has been the face of Lancôme for quite some time now. Over the summer, the French beauty brand announced plans to team up with Winslet in creating a makeup line that would serve to raise money and awareness for Kate’s charity, the Golden Hat Foundation, whose mission is to help children with autism in communicating more effectively. Kate and Lancôme have created a beautiful collection that goes hand in hand with a beautiful cause. The name of the line is, appropriately, Golden Hat, and it features a blush palette, a red lipstick, and a red nail lacquer. The blush, otherwise a pale pink, features the foundation’s emblem (a golden hat!). These offerings look lovely and I really enjoy Kate’s personal touches on the packaging. At least 150,000 euros (about $207,000) of the sale profits will be donated to the charity. [FashionIndie]
Seriously, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, are you effing with me? I already love you in a creepy, possibly unhealthy way, and then you go and cover R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” during a performance at Ohio State University. You’re seriously too much, JGL. Too. Much. [Buzzfeed]
Glamour held their 21st Annual Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall last night, and some of the most bold-faced (female!) names in entertainment, politics, art, fashion, and social justice came out to show their support and recognize the often underrepresented causes that the Awards bring to light. Of course, with this many high-profile women in one place, we’ve got a pretty substantial amount of fashion to ogle. Here’s ten of the best, the worst, and the what-the-hell-was-she-thinking.
While some see Oprah’s fire walk as a publicity stunt to save OWN’s plummeting ratings, I see it as a sign that she hasn’t changed at all. She’s still the badass that took over daytime television and she intends to stay that way. She wouldn’t be Oprah if she didn’t come onstage with a wagon of fat, or live as a colonial woman for a week, or go on a road trip with Gayle, her not-lesbian lover. That is what Oprah does. She goes big. She makes noise. She goes to Anthony Robbins’ “Unleash Your Power Within” seminars and walks on hot coals to prove that those who achieve greatness take action. I refuse to hate on that. Mind over matter, girl! Show those coals who’s boss! [Limelife]
Wow. Adriana Lima has revealed how she preps for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and it sounds … sucky. Adriana works out with a trainer every day, lifting weights, boxing, and jumping rope — which sounds normal for someone whose body is their livelihood — but beginning three weeks ago, she’s been exercising twice a day in preparation for the show. And that’s not the worst of it: Adriana regularly sees a nutritionist who measures out exactly what she must consume to stay alive but also keep her thin. This tasty diet means nine days before the show, Adriana cuts out solid food entirely and survives off of protein shakes. Twelve hours before the show, she stops consuming liquids. Keep reading »
