Harry Styles is entertaining the idea of cutting his hair...and we don't know how we feel about it, tbh.
On one hand, his long flowing locks are one of our fave things about him. On the other, he's got a pretty good plan for making something amazing out of the trim, if he ever gets around to it.
No, not a Harry hair sweater (okay, that's kind of creepy, right?) - no, we're talking about making a little money for charity off of the cut.
Harry revealed the plan when the One Direction guys got a little face time with Prince Harry at the Royal Variety Performance in London on Friday night.
Racked reports that the Prince asked Harry: "When was the last time you had a haircut?" The 1D singer reportedly said he's not "planning on it right now," but when the time comes it'll be for charity.
Can you imagine no more man bun? We're not ready...
Lily-Rose Depp is one lucky girl.
Johnny Depp's 16-year-old daughter managed to escape the chaos of the terror attacks in Paris Friday night after leaving a house party in the city early. The horrible events ended up causing the deaths of 129 people and injured 352 others.
The model later posted a selfie on Instagram, captioning the snap, "This was right before I left the house tonight to go to a party where all my friends are still locked inside waiting for this to be over. I'm so lucky to have left when i did and to be home safe but I've never seen more panic in my life than on the streets on my way home."
"This kind of cruelty is heartbreaking," she continued. "Sending love and prayers to everyone anywhere near this danger. Stay inside #prayforparis." Not long after the post went up, several of her followers criticized her for it, calling her selfie inappropriate.
Lily soon responded to that backlash with a photo of the Eiffel Tower, writing, "People were complaining that my last photo discussing the paris attacks was a selfie. If what you're worried about is what photo I post to talk about the paris attacks and not the attacks themselves then you are very small minded."
"That was the last photo I took before the attacks happened," she continued. "It is a terrifying and emotional night for everyone here in paris, please only express good vibes and love. that is what we need right now." She went on to post a snapshot of a news broadcast about the attacks, captioning it, "On a pas peur #prayforparis."
It's a shame that people are so quick to criticize others on social media. Being in the heart of Paris when those attacks were going on had to be truly frightening, and we're glad that she made it home too.
Bless James Corden for asking the hard hitting questions. During One Direction's sit down with James during their The London Session appearance, the host was very interested in just who the song "Perfect" is about.
Watch as he drops all the Taylor Swift references you can handle. The best part, however, is Harry's hilarious reaction.
James doesn't mince words when asking Harry about "Perfect" by saying: "And in this line it says, 'And if you're looking for someone to write your break up songs about, baby I'm perfect.'"
He adds, "Now listen, I don't want to have any bad blood about this...and if this is a problem, we don't have to talk about it. We can just shake it off."
Finally, James gets to the point: "Who's this song about?"
So. Friggin'. Cheeky. James' teasing is hilarious, but we can't get enough of Harry's adorable facial expression during the line of questioning.
Notice he says nothing, but that smile says so much.
Harry looks so akward it´s actually funny lol, I'm so glad James Corden did the interview lmao pic.twitter.com/eZRrkrvHyP- Dome Naveda (@dome_md) November 16, 2015
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth reunited over the weekend. But don't get too excited about it...
The ex-engaged couple apparently teamed up to adopt dogs. They attended an adoption event for Wylder's Holistic Pet Center together. In fact, Miley helped Liam take home a huge 6-month-old puppy.
"Thanks @mileycyrus for loving dogs as much as we do!! You helped find this gigantic, 6 month old puppy a new home," the Wylder Pet Center shared online. They posted that along with a photo of Liam with his new bestfriend on Instagram.
"@liamhemsworth you will give this deserving baby a great life!" they added.
Can you imagine the life this guy is going to live with Liam in his fancy, Malibu mansion?! Liam wasn't the only one that Miley helped find a new friend this weekend. She also spent some time at the Bella Foundation during an adoption drive where she and pal Wayne Coyne fell in love with a pooch.
They're planning on sharing the dog, who they named Yogi. He will live with Wayne.
"Yogiiii! Adopted from da @thebellafoundation !!!!!" Miley wrote in an adorable selfie with the pup. "Family dawggg! Fwend for Milky. So when Milk comes 2 visit @waynecoyne5 @katyweaver w me she has a bestie!!!"
Milky is the newest addition to Miley's mutt crew. She adopted him earlier this month.
Is there anything left that's still OK to put on our skin?!
Refinery29 reported that tap water is the most recent household item to be put on beauty blast - and for good reason, according to New York City dermatologist, Julia Russak, MD.
"Have you ever noticed stains around the faucet in your bathroom?" Dr. Julia told Refinery29. "What gets deposited on the walls is the same residue that gets deposited on your skin."
Tap water, also called "hard" water, has a high mineral concentration of iron, copper, zinc and nickel that can irritate the skin. If these minerals oxidize, they can actually start to break down collagen. Tap water can also contain super-drying chlorine, which can strip the skin's top layer of oils and proteins - a process that can cause premature aging. Yikes.
Scary, right? But how do you wash your face without water?
The answer is micellar water, a new beauty product that is like a cross between a cleanser and a toner that cleans your skin without all the nasty stuff in hard water. They are made with micelle molecules, little fatty bubbles that absorb oils (and the dirt stuck in them) on your face, according to PopSugar.
It sounds expensive, but you can actually grab a bottle of Simple Cleansing Micellar Water for $7 at Ulta. You just swipe it on with a cotton ball and you're done! So if you're already spending that much on face wash, your wallet won't even notice the switch. Just remember: If you do start using micellar water, you will need to exfoliate regularly - Dr. Julia suggests a chemical peel or a dermaplaning facial.
If you love your in-shower ritual, all hope isn't lost. In fact, Dr. Julia stands by the fact that good old H2O is the best way to clean your face. Use a moisturizer with EDTA: The acid will bind to metal ions and pull the harsh minerals out of your skin.
Alright ladies, now that we've schooled you, it's time to get your clean on!
Khloe Kardashian has a mirror, so she obviously knows that she looks ah-mazing. But she isn't about to let a scale determine how good she feels about herself on any given day, because we all know that you can be having the best day ever, you know you look super hot and then you step on the scale, it hits you with a number you weren't expecting and boom, the whole entire day is shot to hell.
As for Khloe, she has no room for a scale and all of its drama in her life! In a new interview with The San Diego-Union Tribune to promote her book Strong Looks Better Naked, Khloe explained that it's not about what the scale says, it's about how you feel.
"I don't weigh myself, and I don't own a scale," she told them. "It's about how I feel. I think when you feel good, you look good and you just exude all this confidence that you have. I just love the way I feel, even how clear-headed I am. I think what surprised me most is how much I enjoy it [working out] now."
She also explained that even though she has lost weight as a result of her new healthy lifestyle, that wasn't ever the goal. The gym was an emotional release for her and losing weight was just a side-effect of going.
"I was going through a really difficult time in my life, and I was just figuring out if I was going to file for divorce or not," she explains about the beginning of her health kick. "It wasn't about weight at all. It was that I needed a stress reliever, and I didn't know where else to go where I felt alone and safe but I still wanted to be around people."
We think it's great that working out has been so cathartic for her. We also love her healthy attitude about weight and NOT placing so much weight on what the scale says.
To our scale, if you're reading this: Girl, bye!
Whoever thought that ribbons in your hair could look so sophisticated? Apparently Eva Scrivo, New York City-based hair and makeup stylist, knew all along.
"Incorporating timeless holiday textures like ribbon in classic hairstyles is a fun and easy way to style hair for the holiday season," Eva says.
Her senior stylist Annie Rush created this updo for the upcoming whirlwind of holiday parties and dressy events. We watched Annie in action and TBH, we actually think we could pull this off ourselves! Here's the six-step process:
1. Smooth and prep the hair by gently brushing with a boar bristle brush. The boar bristles help tame frizz and flyaways by distributing the natural oils from the scalp to the ends of the hair, creating a polished look.
2. Pull all of your hair back in two steps. First, take the hair from the ears up and clip it on either side. Gather the remainder of your hair, brush it back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck and secure in place with an elastic.
3. Release the clipped hair on top of your head and find a part that feels natural for you, whether that's down the middle or off to one side. Pull both sections back, crisscrossing them over the ponytail, and secure with bobby pins.
4. Tie the ribbon at the base of the ponytail and then begin braiding it into the hair. Secure it with an elastic or tie it off with the ribbon.
5. Spray the braid with a texture spray (like Shu Uemura Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray, $39) and gently pull the braid apart to add a little more texture and body.
6. Finally, roll the braid up into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. Set with a little hairspray (like Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray, $39).
To take it to the next level, try playing with velvet or leather ribbons to up the ante on texture. Everyone in your squad will be begging you to do their hair from here on out, we promise.
Miley Cyrus, you are so cray. The singer just released several cover shots for an upcoming Candy magazine spread, and homegirl took things to a whole new level.
Our twerking gal and her pal photographer Terry Richardson shot nine new covers for Candy. The new snaps are shocking AF, and we're pretty sure they will most definitely be deemed offensive by many.
In one, she's seen licking her hairy armpit. Srsly. In another she's doing her thing to a dildo...
Eh. Are we shocked? We're pretty sure Miley is just being Miley in the pics.
There are legit reasons and meanings behind each shot, though.It's okay not to agree with what Miley is doing in the photos, but it should be acknowledged that at least understanding Miley's intentions, which are largely of a social nature, is a good thing.
From sexual equality to police brutality, it seems like she hit every social issue out there. Peep the pics below and see if you see more from them then well, just raunchyness...
It's never too late for a little Halloween humor (even with Thanksgiving a little over a week away).
That was proven when a photo of a little boy dressed as a fart for Halloween went viral...and one peek at the snap will tell you why people went crazy over it. In the shot, the little boy is surrounded by green and brown tulle and holding a bullhorn that he probably made fart noises into for good measure. Totally hilarious.
The photo prompted a ton of pun-filled responses when it popped up on Imgur, with someone writing, "His parents must be a**holes," and a couple of people replying, "they're just trying to toot their own horns," and "nah man. They're just full of hot air." Everybody loves a good fart joke.
While it's not clear who the parents of the boy are just yet, we can totally imagine them asking 'what do you want to be for Halloween?' and him replying with 'a fart.' No matter what the inspiration was though, it's safe to say this little guy won Halloween.
Have you ever tried on a pair of pants that fit you perfectly, only to feel disappointed when you look at the tag and see that the size is a larger one that you expected? You may know logically that the number printed on the tag on your pants has nothing to do with your worth as a human being, but sadly our body-policing society can sometimes make us feel like smaller is better. Now, a new chart from The Washington Post has finally shown us how arbitrary clothing sizes really are, so don't even bother trying to measure up.
You may have heard that Marilyn Monroe wore a size 16, which may have been true - but in reality, her size 16 was actually more like a size 8 by modern standards. "Vanity sizing," or creating sizes that are larger but with a smaller number attached, has become a common practice in today's fashion industry. In fact, it's why the "double zero" size was born - if people want to feel "thin," might as well put them in a size that isn't even a real number.
Here, The Washington Post shows just how much sizes have changed over the years:Vanity sizing is just more proof that our society has a seriously messed up view of our bodies. We shouldn't aim to be the smallest size on any chart: we should aim to treat our bodies well so that they can carry us through whatever life's adventures await.
Next time you're out shopping, grab a few sizes, and pick the one that fits best. As this chart proves, size really is just a number.
Dating someone new is exciting: not only do you get to explore a connection with someone you're really vibing with, but you also get to open up and expand your world a little bit through them. One thing that gives some girls pause? When they discover that they're not the only major lady in their new boyfriends life - at least, when it comes to friendship. If your new boyfriend has a ton of friends of the female variety, or even just one or two super tight buds, don't take it as a reason to be skeptical - there are so many great things about these friendships that you may not have ever realized.
As someone who has been the girl BFF, it's time that we all start embracing your new BF's "friends who are girls" for the unique place they have in your life. Here's why dating a guy who boasts females as friends is actually a really awesome thing:
1. It's evidence that he respects all women, not just his GF.
Lots of guys dote on their girlfriends, but don't have the same respect for women outside of their relationship. A guy who has lots of friends who are girls likely sees women as just another part of his friendship crew, which means he's interested in women as people, not potential hookups or dates.
2. He's been schooled on womens issues.
Not all women have the same opinion on societal issues, but a guy who has deeper friendships with women is more likely to understand why things like street harassment are a problem, if only because his girl pals shut down his "But it's a compliment!" argument a long time ago.
3. They can give him (actually decent) advice about you.
So you two got into a fight and he declared that it was because you were "PMSing." If he comes to his ladies for advice, they may remind him why that argument is never, ever okay - and how to apologize appropriately for it.
4. They're your first line of defense for gifts.
Even if your boyfriends friends aren't fashionistas, they'll likely be able to inform your guy if the gigantic wooden necklace that he picked out for you isn't your style. They're also the people you can go to if you want an opinion on a good birthday gift for him, since they already have the inside scoop.
5. You may find yourself with new friends of your very own.
Your boyfriend has already vetted these girls, and you're pretty into your new guy, which means that there's a good chance that you and his friends will hit it off as well. They're also your in to embarrassing stories about your BF, so keep them close.
Here's an interesting turn of events - Nick Jonas has reportedly been getting a bit flirty with Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall. Okay, we're totally on board with these two dating...how cute would they be together?
During Little Mix's recent appearance on Alan Carr Chatty Man, Perrie Edwards squealed: "He [Nick] just likes her pictures on Instagram. Gave you a cheeky DM, didn't he?"
She added: "Leigh and me called him out in an interview, you see. And then he tweeted saying, 'Oh awkward when you get called out in an interview for liking someone's pictures.'"
Nick even acknowledged it on Twitter, writing: "That awkward moment you get called out live on the air by @Alicelevine for liking certain peoples pics on Instagram. Ha"
Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards recently played a little game of "To Bae or Not To Bae" on Capital FM and of course Nick's name came up.
Jade said of the singer: "I think he's lovely. Great singer. Nice shaved head. The world's your oyster really, so 'To Bae.'
We ship them.
What were you doing when you were 19? I was drinking my way through university (I went to school in Australia where the legal drinking age is 18), but Maria Rose Belding is changing the world in a very #BUILTBYGIRLS kind of way. Maria is a L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth Honoree. The award recognizes "strength, perseverance and determination" and honors women who "through courage, have become beacons of change in their communities." Maria is responsible for creating the database MEANS (Matching Excess and Need for Stability), which allows food pantries and soup kitchens to swiftly and easily exchange excess food items, a development obviously worthy of celebration.
Maria, a pre-med student at American University, created MEANS as an easy, accessible way for local food donors to get their donations efficiently to those in need. The database aims to put food that would otherwise go to waste in the hands of the hungry or homeless, in as little as 60 minutes. Maria's database has grown to encompass 50 cities in 12 states in the two years since its inception, with over 1,600 partner agencies. Maria is now receiving $10,000 for her charity as a L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth Honoree, and could possibly win $25,000 for her cause if she's selected as the National Honoree.
You can vote for Maria to be awarded the National Honoree prize before Friday, Nov. 20, 2015, on WomenofWorth.com, and on L'Oréal Paris' Facebook and Twitter pages. Meanwhile, we spoke to Maria about MEANS, initiating her dream, the challenges she's faced, and what it's like to be such an accomplished young woman...
1. What gave you the idea for the MEANS Database?
I had the idea for MEANS as a high school freshman. I was volunteering in the food pantry in my church, and I ended up being the person who threw away a lot of the excess food. It wasn't like our food pantry director didn't care about how much we were putting in the dumpster - she was doing everything anyone could have asked her to do to try to get it out to our clients or other food pantries, including at one point taking an oversize donation with her family on a road trip vacation from Iowa, dropping it off in a high-need community in Michigan. I knew we had to do better than that, so I decided to build a system that would make it easier for us to talk to food pantries in our neighboring towns.
2. How did you get started on your goal?
I spent much of high school researching emergency feeding systems like food pantries and soup kitchens, trying to discover exactly where the need was and how I could address it. I had the background in hunger research and writing to develop the concept and its details, but I could not for the life of me build the website we needed to make MEANS work. Right after graduation, I met Grant Nelson, our co-founder, and he was able to craft the part of MEANS I couldn't - he's a coder and data scientist, and he built the website from scratch.
3. What challenges have you faced?
Trying to start MEANS while also starting college was challenging. Balancing class and work didn't get easier as I got into sophomore year; I just got a little better at handling it all. MEANS has absolutely exploded in the past month, and it's been a great lesson in work-life balance, priorities and how important it is to get good sleep. L'Oréal Paris announced us as one of their 2015 Women of Worth honorees on November 2, and it's been wonderful chaos since - Karlie Kloss and Arianna Huffington called me their #WomenCrushWednesday and my phone literally shut down from all the notifications!
4. What advice do you have for other young women looking to make their dreams a reality?
The best leaders know when and how to bring people smarter or more skilled than them into the team to tackle the problem with the best of everyone's talent. No one achieves anything alone; everybody owes somebody for certain parts of their story. Be on the lookout for chances to be that somebody for another girl or young woman, and seek out people who can influence you and your story in positive ways. Be a Leslie Knope. Work hard, laugh often, drink coffee, build a team you love and respect. Don't ever apologize for being who you are but do say you're sorry, and mean it, when you've made a mistake. And, if your dream involves making an impact on your community, apply for the L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth Award!
5. What are your biggest goals for the future?
Until November 20, it's to get enough votes to be recognized as the L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth National Honoree - I would receive an additional $25,000 towards MEANS! It would be so helpful for us to fulfill our mission. After that, MEANS is only growing from here, so one of my biggest goals is to double the amount of food we moved in 2015 for 2016. I'd like to develop a strong volunteer corps of young people to help food pantries physically move food; I'd like to bring on full-time professional staff...the goal list is really long. I'm only 20, so I have some time to figure it out. For now, there are 48 million people in the United States struggling with hunger. My life will sort itself out. Until then, we've got work to do.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner are currently in Australia to promote their Forever New clothing line and while most fans down under were extremely excited to see the sisters, some people were clearly not thrilled about the whole thing.
Unfortunately, instead of just booing or showing their discontent in some other, peaceful way, a few people apparently threw eggs at the girls when they appeared on stage at a Westfield mall in Western Sydney.
According to TMZ, some eggs did hit the stage and splatter on fans, but none of them hit Kendall or Kylie. Cops were able to locate the egg-thrower and arrested them. While TMZ reports that it was only one person, a source told the Daily Mail that there were a couple of people. "There were like three guys and one girl," a fan told Daily Mail Australia. "They threw two or three eggs."
After the incident, umbrellas were raised around the stage and a curtain was put up to protect the famous siblings from anything else being launched in their direction, and the rest of their appearance seemed to go pretty smoothly.
Kylie shared this video on Instagram, thanking the fans for the love they showed them.
We all know that a classic, borrowed-from-the-boys blazer is pretty high up on the list of essentials that every fashionista should have in her wardrobe. Few pieces in our closets can be worn as many ways - but ICYMI, Jennifer Lawrence may have just come up with yet another way to rock a blazer that we hadn't thought of yet: As a dress!
The Hunger Games star recently wore a long blazer and, well, pretty much nothing else on the red carpet - and while it may sound crazy, J. Law totally pulled it off. The siren red Mugler dress was the perfect, unexpectedly sexy alternative to the typical strapless, flowy gown we've all gotten used to seeing our favorite celebs wear. Want to try the look for yourself? We have some ideas - it's easier than you think!
For a Night Out:
Charlotte Russe) will stand out against a sea of body-con mini dresses! A grey furry vest ($92.40, The Hut) perfectly softens your sharp dress, and will keep you warm once the sun goes down! Follow J. Law's example and wear the look with eye-catching shoes - but instead of metallics, try a bright cobalt, strappy pair ($50, Boohoo)! This look is best with minimalist accessories - go for a simple black clutch ($16.99, Maykool), an unexpectedly edgy pearl choker ($22, ASOS) and a cool, oversized cocktail ring ($5.90, Forever 21).
Nail art is here, and it's here to stay. Who could resist adorable and sometimes edgy nail stickers that will ensure you stand out from the rest? Well now you can take your nail art game to the next level with MM Nails, and interactive hologram nail art app. Nails on fleek!
Girls and fellas can play with an assortment of nail trends to achieve the most covetable nail art ever. With this new phone app developed by Metaverse LTD, you can capture 3D videos of your freshly painted manicure and send them to your friends.
The app is pretty awesome with tons of stickers and moving graphics like kittens, butterflies and other animated creatures. Once you've created the best nail art, you can share your work on social media. FYI, expect a lot of LIKES.
What do you think of the latest nail art craze? Will you be trying?
Caitlyn Jenner received Glamour's "Woman of the Year" award this year and not everyone is happy about it. The husband of a 9/11 hero returned the same award that had been given to his late wife, calling it a "slap in the face" when Caitlyn received it. "Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?'' he wrote, in an open letter posted to Facebook.
Turns out, Caitlyn's comments after receiving the award ruffled a lot of feathers, too, especially when she told BuzzFeed backstage that "the hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear." In a (now-deleted) open letter to the former Olympian, Rose McGowan slammed the 66-year-old, saying she doesn't understand what being a woman is all about, writing:
Before deleting the post entirely, Rose reportedly added:
Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all. You want to be a woman and stand with us - well learn us. We are more than deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon us by people like you. You're a woman now? Well f**king learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage. The weight of unequal history. You'd do well to learn it. You'd do well to wake up. Woman of the year? Not by a long f**king shot.
No word on why Rose deleted the post.
Let me amend this by saying I'm happy for what she's doing visibility wise for the trans community, and I'm happy she's living her truth, but comments like hers have consequences for other women. How we are perceived, what our values are, and leads to more stereotyping. If you know you are going to be speaking to media about being a woman, maybe come to understand our struggles.
Virgin America might be one of the only airlines with a purple mood-lit cabin, but at least they're showing it off! Fast Company reported this week that the airline has partnered with Google to provide a virtual view of its planes, providing complete transparency with customers on the posh, unique amenities provided.
The technology is taken from Google Street View (have you ever seen a Google-branded car drive by your house with a camera attached to it? It's not a creeper (or shouldn't be); it's the the Google Street View car.) The technology has been adapted for Virgin and is called "Seat View" (#clever) and can be viewed right from Virgin's website:
Check out that mood lighting! Forget pulling out Mockingjay - I'd be queuing up my party playlist and getting the party started.
Virgin may be putting off the fancy vibe, but the company wants customers to know that the trendy air style is just a bonus to Virgin's affordable pricing:
Virgin's low fares don't expand to all areas of the world, but it's enough to make the public urge the airline to expand its services. #FlyOnFleek
If you thought that Hollywood actors didn't have to worry about mean girls trying to tear them down, starlet Bella Thorne says that it's so not the case. Bella's new interview with Seventeen hints that she's had her fair share of interactions with the Regina George types of Hollywood - including one celebrity who sounds suspiciously like a Jenner sister. Hmm...
Here's what Bella said in her interview about a certain star who is anything but sweet:
Bella never explicitly stated who she was talking about in the interview, but she did drop some hints that seem to specifically pertain to the younger members of the Jenner/Kardashian clan. She specifically drops a clue that this person has "sisters," and that they have been famous for pretty much forever - sounds a lot like Kendall and Kylie, right?
I have a mean girl. She's in the business, and she's very, very mean. I stay away from her at all costs. I never say hello to her. Her siblings are not mean like she is. It's just her. One of the reasons I don't like her is because she's been a billionaire since she was very little, and she's never had to work for anything in her life.
If Bella is talking about a Jenner sister here, it seems a lot more likely that it's Kendall and not Kylie. Bella and Kylie were spotted in September hanging out at a fashion show together, and from the pics they seem like pretty close friends. That might be why Bella said that this mean girl's sisters didn't share her mean streak: she could be buds with Kylie and tiptoe around Kendall at all costs. There may be no bad blood between Bella and Kylie, but I doubt that Kylie would be too pleased to hear her friend talking smack on her sister. Bella may have a mean girl, but sometimes it's best to take the high road and ignore them - and not drop hints about who they may be.
