Talk about #girlpower! Victoria's Secret surely never disappoints. To be honest, I didn't think that they could top up of last year's show, but boy, was I wrong!
Here are the top five moments that will give you a glimpse of the show.
1. Can We Start With Kendall Jenner, Please?
Even though I really hate that Kendall and Gigi Hadid were the focus of attention by many photographers and journalists, I can honestly say that she did her part well, and kudos to the designers cause her costumes were A-mazing. Obviously, there needs to be a little bit of Kardashian in there, cause they want a shot of Kris Jenner and Caitlyn taking pictures and being proud of their daughter. No harm in that. :)
2. Fireworks Fantasy Bra
Lily Aldridge got emotional when they told her that she was going to wear the $2 million, jewel-encrusted Fireworks Fantasy Bra (and honestly who wouldn't?). And girl she worked it and did it justice.
3. I'm Just Going to Go on the Fireworks Theme (last theme of the show).
My jaw kept getting lower and lower after each model kept coming out. The costumes were outstanding. From the wonder bra to a light-up look that resembled a turning wheel to an ensemble reminiscent of a phoenix on fire worn by Joan Smalls, the props were out of this world, and it was the best way to end the show.
4. Everyone Likes a Good Selfie and Surely the Victoria's Secret Models Didn't Disappoint.
There was a feature showing what goes on backstage and apart from hair, makeup and interviews, selfies are a must. How else will they remember this event? Like duh!
5. We Can't not Talk About the Singers: Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and The WeekNd.
All three were amazing and vocals outstanding. They definetely helped to put on one great show and made it more memorable.
Believe me, those points are a few glimpse of the whole show. All I know now after watching this spectacular runway is that I really need to start working out. k.thx.bye.
With all the Niall Horan and Selena Gomez dating rumors swirling after they reportedly were spotted making out (as seen in this pic of them kissing) and having a fun date night together, eagle eyed fans are on the lookout for any flirty activity.
That's why a little buzz started to kick off when Niall apparently left a cute message on one of Selena's Instagram pics. The only thing is, it wasn't so much a legit comment (just like that kissing pic, btw).
A comment from Niall that read "youre hot" graced one of Sel's selfie pics, but all is not what it seems, as fans quickly sniffed out it was a Photoshopped fake.
@hatzin1D he didn't comment it was photoshopped- Niall Horan (@factualnjh) December 9, 2015
@hatzin1D I checked on inspy and he didn't comment he only liked his cousins IG post- Niall Horan (@factualnjh) December 9, 2015
@GRlMCEST why are Niall's comment letters smaller.- ångs (@mykiesglitter) December 9, 2015
Harry Styles has no shortage of fans - even celebrities are wild about Harry. Rock legend Mick Jagger is among the One Direction star's many admirers, which is crazy cool, considering how often Harry's style and look is compared to Mick's.
The Rolling Stones icon even went so far as to call Harry "decent." Well, you didn't think someone of his caliber was going to go full bromance, did you?
In an interview with the Mail on Sunday's Event Magazine, Mick explained, "He's got it going on."
He added, "I know him, he comes to see me in lots of shows. And yeah, I can see the influence. But I don't say anything to him, I just tell him he looks nice. I like him. He's very decent."
Where did the idea for such an accessory come from, you ask? Funny story. Christen explains on her site that the Pussy Bow was the eventual evolution of purchasing Siime Eye vibrator. Equipped with a camera attached to the end, Christen used this vibrator to broadcast the inside of her vagina live on Periscope while also projecting the images onto the walls of New York's Ace Hotel.
Technology these days, amirite?
"It looks like a leaf pattern to me. I love the colors, how the warm fluid turns to an almost cool blue," she said on her Tumblr.
Because Christen immediately fell in love with the colors and textures she found...within herself, she decided to print that image on silk. The result was a pun-tastic article of clothing that she is now selling for $50.
To go along with the feminist message, 10 percent of the proceeds from each Pussy Bow sold will go toward Planned Parenthood. Through doing this, Christen hopes to aid in the fight against recent attacks on reproductive rights like the shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood.
"There is no equality without reproductive rights, there are no reproductive rights without respect for the female body, and there is no respect for the female body without knowledge of it," she told the Daily Dot. "So the Pussy Bow is a feminist action disguised as a fashion accessory."
Weirdly enough, the scarves are pretty cute. We can't deny that the color pattern is pretty even if it is lady bits-themed. Sure, it's a touch eccentric but we stand by Christen's the message accompanying her Pussy Bows. Whether or not we'll actually be wearing Christen's pussy around our necks like she asks remains to be seen, but we're all about promoting reproductive rights.
Do you Christen, we'll be behind you 100 percent.
Go, Kris Jenner! The 60-year-old mother of six continues to prove that she's still got "it" and she isn't afraid to flaunt it.
In this new video for the LOVE Magazine Advent Calendar, the momager takes the sexiest swim we've ever seen and while the first thing we think of when we think of Christmas isn't necessarily taking a dip in the pool, Kris does live in Southern California, where it's pretty much swim weather all year long!
So, we're not even mad at it. We actually think it's awesome. Plus, they were playing Fetty Wap in the background and we can never be mad when we're listening to him.
Last year, Kris starred in another Advent video for the mag, where she and daughter Kendall Jenner totally destroyed a Christmas tree wearing sexy outfits and high heels.
And don't worry, they didn't leave Kendall out this year. Quite the opposite, actually. Not only did they split Kris and Kendall up and give them each their own day this year, Kendall was day ONE!
Merry Christmas, ladies!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West didn't have a name picked out for their son when he was born. Granted, he arrived a few weeks early, but they weren't stressing about their little man's moniker either way.
"It's like the last thing that Kanye and I did when North was born," she told PEOPLE back in November. "We didn't name her for like seven days. I feel like it will just come to us." So, that's exactly what they did. And three days after he was born, they decided to go with "Saint."
Of course, knowing his first name isn't enough for curious fans who want to know everything about KimYe's son...and naturally his middle name has been a hot topic of conversation. There was some speculation that Kim and Kanye wanted to go with "Robert" or at least something with an "R" to honor her late father, Robert Kardashian, but the couple never responded to that rumor.
Now, Saint's middle name has finally been revealed and it's....nothing! Not actually "Nothing," but it's nothing as in there is no middle name. A source tells E! News that little Saint will be just like his big sister North West and just have a first and last name.
Middle name or not, we can't wait to see the little guy!
Real talk for a second, ladies: Most of us are no strangers to acne. Even though pimples are the ugliest little nasties that will ever grace our faces, they eventually will disappear with some patience and a lot of cleansing. That being said, there are more severe types of acne that can live on our faces for much longer than a few days, and they're much harder to get rid of.
Cystic acne are the types of big, red zits that often feel swollen or painful. Because cystic acne doesn't come to a head, it's extremely hard to get rid of and can last on your face for years at a time if not treated.
How do you tell that you may have cystic acne and what's more, how do you get rid of it? We're giving you the low-down on these devilish pimples and all you can do to clear out your face.
What Is it?Like regular acne, cystic acne is usually caused when dead skin and bacteria get caught in your pores. If the infection gets deep enough into your skin, a large red bump tender to the touch can develop. Because this sort of acne penetrates deep into the skin, it doesn't clear out as easily as regular acne. Who Gets it?
According to Web MD, cystic acne tends to develop around your teens or your early 20s, but there really isn't an age limit to when you can start getting it. Although we don't know what causes it, an increase in hormones that happen during puberty (everyone's favorite time) causes changes in the skin that make pores more likely to clog. There's also a chance that cystic acne can be hereditary, so if mom or dad were sufferers back in the day, be sure to talk to your dermatologist.
How to Get Rid of it?Like we said, it's not easy getting rid of cystic acne, but Allure has some suggestions to try before heading to the dermatologist. Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City says to dis your usual acne cleanser and opt for an exfoliant that has salicylic cleanser which can help get rid of excess oil on your skin.
Next, Joshua suggests taking a cold compress and holding it against the zit. "Ice-cold temperatures help constrict blood vessels, so wrap an ice cube in a paper towel and hold it against the bump to reduce redness and bring down the swelling a bit," he said.
To have this work best, apply the ice after washing your face with the salicylic acid and ice your face in ten-minute intervals three times each hour.
In order to get rid of excess bacteria that could be making matters worse, Joshua says benzoyl peroxide is your best bet. But be careful when using this ingredient; before applying it to the skin, add some moisturizer and then take the lowest concentration of benzoyl peroxide you can find and only apply it to the zit. Use a very small amount because too much may actually burn your skin and if you feel a burning sensation wash it off immediately.
For combating redness, Joshua says that OTC hydrocortisone cream contains a small enough dose of steroids to help reduce swelling and redness.
What Your Derm Can DoIf the acne persists despite you taking steps to remove it, you're going to need to see your dermatologist. Depending on how bad the acne is, your doctor may either prescribe you antibiotics to help stop the spread of bacteria or prescribe a lotion or gel with retinoid to unclog your pores. For us ladies, doctors may even prescribe birth control in order to regulate hormones and prevent future break outs.
Accutane has also become a popular treatment for cystic acne. Coming in pill-form, Accutane is a medication you take once or twice a day for five months to help clear your skin completely and permanently. But if you want to avoid possible side-effects associated with Accutane, your derm may give you cortisone shot to get rid of the bacteria deep within the zit.
With cystic acne the #struggle is real, but don't panic! There are ways to get rid of unsightly and stubborn blemishes no matter how dramatically it seems to effect your face. Your derm's got you, girl.
It's not that it isn't on-trend to be informed about the political race for president, it's a combination of things:
1. Keeping up with all of the candidates and their views
2. Understanding the views
3. Understanding how the views affect you, your friends and family, your state, your country ...
4. ... the list goes on.
25-year-old Hunter Scarborough wanted to build something that solved all of these problems and created the Voter app. Voter aims to educate millennials on the issues at hand and present which political party and representative share those same views.
I downloaded the app to test it out, and it first asked me to login, followed by a series of "basic" questions: "Legalize marijuana? Repeal Obamacare?" If you're unsure of your view, the app provides an info section to educate the user on the topic at a high level:
How does Voter get all of this real-time information? Per Fast Company, Voter relies on "databases from the Sunlight Foundation, GovTrack.US, and Open Secrets, among others. While these organizations want to make their data open and accessible, it is hard for the average citizen to make sense of it."
The app has different levels of questions as well (currently there are three.) After the initial questions, users can choose to provide their stance on even more issues like "stricter laws for online piracy" or whether or not the United States should "send troops to foreign wars." These same "levels" provide an overview of the topic and opposing views.
All in all, this is an app I would 100% recommend. It's easy to use and navigate, and the information is digestible and readily accessible. Hunter also plans to expand Voter's services so users can rely on it for state and local elections, too.
Download the app and tweet more your thoughts @lizprugh.
YouTube Rewind 2015 is here, and it is everything we have been waiting for. Spoiler alert! Watching famous YouTubers do the whip is hysterical.
Personally, my favorite part was Dan Howell and Phil Lester beautifully recreating "Charlie Bit My Finger." But, I am bias to anything Dan and Phil. Other highlights are a huge dance party on the beach, doing the whip through out the decades and an amazing multilingual recreation of Shia LaBeouf's inspirational speech.
Each year, I watch the Youtube Rewind, and each year, I wish I was a YouTuber to be a part of it. Check out the video here.
Remember Alex from Target, that hottie from the big box retailer that was the talk of the internet? #AlexFromTarget became internet famous, which isn't totally a bad thing, but we haven't seen him in awhile.
Here's what he looked like when he took the world by storm:
Well, he doesn't look quite like he used to - he dyed his hair blue, for one!
Alex is showing off his blue hair in his Twitter profile pic and on Instagram - and we are totally digging that teal hue, dude. It really makes the eyes pop!
You can also see Alex's dye job in these cute Vine videos.
Kim Kardashian had to go through a lot with her second pregnancy. Even conceiving was extremely difficult as we saw on her well-documented fertility struggles on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Even once she DID get pregnant, she had a lot of tough stuff to deal with. "Every medical issue that you could probably have I feel like I get and I worry so much about it," she told E! News. "This pregnancy I have a little bit more anxiety just because I know what's to come and it's really inevitable some of the issues that I'm going to have."
And even though they were able to flip Saint from a breech position to a head-down position during a painful hospital procedure prior to his birth, the delivery itself wasn't easy for Kim, either. According to TMZ, Kim had something called placenta accreta, where the placenta grows too deep inside the uterus and the doctors needed two extra hours during delivery to deal with those issues.
Fortunately, mommy and baby are both doing great following little Saint's birth and in this interview with Entertainment Tonight, momager Kris Jenner gives an update about how incredibly strong her daughter is...even if she did get a little "cranky" when she was uncomfortable. Can't say we blame her, though!
Selena Gomez looked confident and hot AF at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but that didn't stop her from dealing with some haters. She went off on Instagram after some viewers accused her of lip-syncing during the show.
The whole moment went down when Victoria's Secret shared an image of Sel's appearance via Instagram. It didn't take long for people to claim she was lip-syncing...and she wasn't having it. After seeing the comments about her performance, she took to Instagram to set the record straight.
"Yes I f**king sing live," she wrote using her official account. You tell 'em, Sel!
Haters weren't on Selena's mind before the show, though. In an Instagram posted on Tuesday, she was pictured snacking on a meal from McDonald's, including the restaurant's French fries, right before the November 10 taping of the fashion show.
In 1989, the makers of the film Back to the Future II thought that in 2015, our jackets might be able to dry themselves. Thanks to startup company Falyon, the first self-drying jacket now exists.
After coming up with the idea about a year ago, Falyon is introducing the SDJ-01 to the world via a Kickstarter campaign. The design is practically an exact copy of the jacket worn by Marty McFly in the movie. Because you probably weren't born yet, here's what the famous movie clip looks like:
"We spent the summer refining the design, racing against time as we were determined to bring the self-drying jacket to life in 2015," co-founder Aaron Coleman told Mashable. "We purposely set the funding to end early because we want everyone to be able to say 'self-drying jackets were real in 2015.'"
The SDJ redirects air with extreme high pressure, similar to a hair dryer, using three exhaust vents which are activated by a power button. You can also blow cool, dry air on your face and hair if you've gotten caught in a rainstorm or something and look like a wet rat. The jacket is powered by a rechargeable battery that can blast air for up to 30 minutes - it comes with a six-foot long charging cable, in case you want to wear the jacket at your desk while simultaneously charging it. These guys thought of everything.
Falyon says in lab tests the jacket dried in 30 seconds. Leave the dryers on for a minute and more than 90 percent of the moisture should be gone. Isn't wearable tech magical?
Further proof that you're never too young to achieve your wildest dreams.
On Monday, H&M hosted its annual Design Award competition at London's The Orangery in Kensington Palace, which attracts fashion graduates with a prize of a more than $50,000 dollars, a year of mentorship and a chance to sell the winning collection at H&M in fall of 2016.
The winner of this year's prize was Hannah Jinkins, who graduated from the Royal College of Art this year. Hannah presented four looks during the H&M competition, and some of them are available already, for the low, low price of $1,495 to $3,295 at LN-CC boutique, where her capstone collection launched during London Fashion Week. But maybe you should just wait for the H&M collection.
Clearly, Hannah's got some serious design chops: She was judged by some of the top names in the biz, including Balmain's Olivier Rousting, photographer Nick Knight, actress Kate Bosworth, blogger Chiara Ferragni and H&M Creative Advisors Ann-Sofie Johansson and Margareta van den Bosch.
Paper Journal reports that Hannah's collection was sponsored by top-of-the-line Japanese denim mill Kaihara, resulting in styles such as apron dungarees and top-stitch denim jackets. The gender neutrality and sustainability of her work is part of what has made her so popular as a young designer.
Here's a picture of Hannah at work, utilizing her own "staple-to-fit" on-model tailoring technique.

Yasss! Dirty Dancing is making a comeback.
The 80's cult classic is set for a TV remake, with the reboot set to air on ABC, with Abigail Breslin starring in it as Baby, according to TheWrap. Lionsgate TV's new Dirty Dancing will be three hours long and adapted from the 1987 flick starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.
There's no word yet on when it will (or start shooting), but Abigail couldn't wait to share the news with fans. After it was announced, the Scream Queens star hit Twitter, writing, "So excited to finally be able to tell you I'm playing Baby!
There have been rumors for a while that there would be a Dirty Dancing remake coming soon, especially after a Lionsgate-backed miniseries was set to begin shooting in North Carolina, according to Today. But, that was canceled in July.
That's one hot mama! Carrie Underwood just made us all want to chop our hair off ASAP thanks to a new 'do she's rocking these days. Yep, the country singer just axed her blonde locks and is sporting a short hairstyle now. #LoveIt!
Carrie recently showed off a new haircut in a gorgeous selfie on Instagram. It was snapped backstage before her recent performance at the Grand Ole Opry. Like always, Carrie looked ultra-glam for the show, with dramatic eye makeup and a pink lip, while her shoulder-grazing hair was curled in soft waves.
"Backstage @Opry selfie!" she captioned the pic. "I love being at the Ryman! There's just something so special about this place..."
Carrie isn't the only one taking the short-hair-don't-care route. She is just the latest to join what appears to be a growing trend, with Hayden Panettiere and her pal Miranda Lambert opting for a shorter, blonder 'dos these days, too.
Last week, this Daniel Radcliffe audition video for Harry Potter was giving us life, as Dan Rad clearly nailed it, delivering major goosebumps because it was totally the role he was born to play.
Well, get ready for even more feels, because this screen test video is making the rounds of the three Potter leads: Daniel as Harry, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley.
This is their first time reading lines together and holy chemistry - the casting peeps on this movie got it all just right. Daniel, Emma, and Rupert are beyond adorable, but also insanely talented.
Check it out, beginning at 7:58.
Have you ever thought about how amazing it would be if your basic turkey and cheese sandwich magically became a delicious chocolate-y dessert? Okay, so no one can give you Harry Potter-esque powers in order to do that, but a new invention now makes it possible to use chocolate the same way you might use cheese. Chocolate slices are here, and chocolate lovers should stock up ASAP.
Japanese company Bourbon has made your dreams come true by creating a chocolate treat designed for your convenience. The treat, which Rocket News says is not as sweet as fudge but is more intense in chocolate taste than milk chocolate, comes packaged like the slice of cheese you might make a mean grilled cheese with. Just like sliced cheese, it's very versatile: cut out shapes for cute dessert topics, slap it on a piece of bread, or just roll it up and toss it in your mouth. (Hey, zero judgments here.)
So how can you get this amazing culinary invention? No need to head to Japan: the food will be available in supermarkets and can be bought via bulk order online here. Happy eating, choco-addicts.
The Japan based Bourbon company has started to sell chocolate slices packaged like Kraft cheese singles. 😍 pic.twitter.com/Q39f8U7z48- sobore (@sobore) December 9, 2015
Saggy pants might be an eyesore to some, but should high school students be serving jail time over an unfortunate fashion choice?
Antonio Ammons is one of two students at Tennessee's Bolivar Central High School who spent 48 hours in jail after a school officer reported a total of four teens for indecent exposure, WMC Action News 5 reports. Some students and parents think it was an excessive punishment, including Antonio, whose response to spending time behind bars is honestly kind of heart-breaking.
"I just took it and went on. I didn't know what else to do," he said of being held at the Hardeman County Criminal Justice Complex. "I really didn't like it."
Here's yet another reason to side-eye the entire situation - while the school's student handbook bans "low slung, baggy seat, baggy legged, or bell-bottom pants," an attorney who spoke on the case said that wearing saggy pants doesn't violate any of state's indecent exposure laws.
A photo of Antonio shows the violation that led to the punishment and it's worth noting that none of his actual body parts are visible - only the waistband of his pants and the top half of his underwear.
Unfortunately, the incident has left Antonio with more than $250 in court costs and fees. The school's principal Jeff Barnes has yet to comment on the case.
Of all the crazy dress code stories we've heard this year (such as the Tennessee students who were disciplined for wearing leggings), this one is particularly concerning because of the legal repercussions. Details on why the students were charged with a crime are unknown, but it makes us wonder why the school couldn't handle a simple dress code issue without involving the law.
Following news that Kristin Cavallari's missing brother had been found dead, more details are coming in about the possible cause of his passing.
Officials reportedly told E! News that Michael Cavallari most likely died from prolonged exposure to the elements, considering his "body was found three miles from where his car was wrecked in the high desert of Grand County, Utah." It was very cold the week he went missing, with temps in the teens at night and 30s during the day.
Officials believe that Micheal eventually died dealing with those elements, telling the site, "There were no signs of major trauma and no suicide note. Cops did not find any evidence of drugs or alcohol either."
Grand County Sheriff Steven White told CBS News it was difficult to find Michael in the "steep, boulder-specked area" where he was found and that as many as 30 deputies armed with dogs and drones combed the area looking for him. "In the area he was in it was very rough," the sheriff said. "It made the search very challenging."
The search had been on for Michael since he had gone missing two weeks ago. He was spotted on security cameras stopping for gas in Monticello, Utah Nov. 27 and later plunged into an embankment when he veered off the road about 90 miles away. Police believe he got out of the car and wandered into the desert.
Michael was found wearing the same clothes he had on when he stopped at the gas station. For now though, the possibility that Michael died from exposure to the elements is just a theory. The official cause of his death won't be determined until toxicology reports are released in the next 6-8 weeks.
After news surfaced Thursday that Michael had been found dead, Kristin released a statement to E! News, saying, "We want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers during this very difficult time. We have just been informed by the authorities my brother's body has been found. This is a very painful time and we are still processing it all. We kindly ask everyone please respect our privacy during our time of grieving."
