Olivia Culpo strips down for her first appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuitissue. The 25-year-old actress, model, and beauty queen takes part in the glossy's "In Her Own Words" shoot, wearing nothing but phrases like "woman," "love transforms," and "imperfect" painted on her body. Other stars like Paulina Porizkova, Robyn Lawley, gymnast Aly Raisman, and Christie Brinkley's daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, also model in the photoshoot.
The project, shot and produced by a team of all women, is meant to be a form of empowerment and expression—a surprising but refreshing turn for a publication known for its juicy swimsuit spreads.

Gigi Hadid Opens Up About The Medical Reason Behind Her Weight Loss

1233545

The model posted a series of tweets addressing her struggle with Hashimoto’s disease

In a series of tweets posted yesterday, model Gigi Hadid opened up about living with Hashimoto’s disease and how that has affected her over the past few years. Addressing the subject of her weight changing she said, “those of u (sic) who called me ‘too big for the industry’ were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that.” If you aren’t familiar, the autoimmune disease attacks the thyroid gland, which can lead to symptoms including fluctuations in weight, fatigue, muscle aches and depression. Gigi explains that it can also amplify the effects of stress and excessive travel – causing her to lose weight. Despite that, she says internally she is healthier than ever. She...

These Stylish Sisters Prove Why a Bolt Of Blue Eyeshadow is Twice The Fun At Alexander Wang

00-story-simi-and-haze-blue-eyeshadow
Tonight, Alexander Wang presented a Fall 2018 collection that included zipper-accented dresses, Matrix-esque coats, sleek silver hair clips and one striking penny red dye job. But a quick look around proved that power moves were also aplenty in the designer's front row. Never ones to shy from more-is-more makeup, sisters Simi and Haze Khadra wore bright poppy lips, matching pedicures—and a game-changing swipe of turquoise pigment across their lids. This isn't the first sighting of bold blue eyeshadow at New York Fashion Week, where the shade seems to be making an early bid for the makeup color of the season: At Saks Potts, models sported a thin aquamarine streak on their lower lash lines, and sharp cerulean wings showed up at the Chromat show last night. With rain on tomorrow's forecast, consider...

This Musician’s Striking Sculptural Hair Just Won New York Fashion Week

00-Story-Kelela-Telfar
Last night in Manhattan, as the fashion set dashed from runway show to runway show, Telfar put on a very different kind of event. To celebrate his Fall 2018 collection, aptly titled “Music,” Telfar Clemens hosted a one-of-a-kind ensemble concert, replete with musicians Dev Hynes, Kelsey Lu, Ian Isiah, rapper 070 Shake and more—all jamming in the designer's pops of red leather and signature rock ‘n’ roll cut-out pieces. Center stage was beauty queen and songstress, Kelela, who performed vocals looking fresh faced in a trio of architectural knots. While the R&B musician has been known to take a risk when it comes to her trademark lengths, often embellishing braids with pearls and crystal beads, the mesmerizing high twists were a departure, cutting a striking figure during...

Diddy Addresses Savage Photo Cropping: ‘I Just Found Out’

1200x600
Remember in middle school when a picture of your group of friends unfortunately featured that girl who told your crush you liked him and so you dutifully cut around her and re-pinned it to your notice board? Well, Puff Daddy/P Diddy/Sean Combs/Diddy/Love, one of the most influential moguls in music and a grown man, has been doing the same thing. In fact, it's now become something of a phenomenon. The first evidence of cropping was his removalof Kim Kardashian from a front row lineup of Rihanna, Jay-Z and Beyoncé in a fashion week snap. In a Met Gala picture from 2017, he cut Kylie and Kendall Jenner because they didn't work with his "#blackexcellence" caption. Now he's done it again, but this time much...

Selena Gomez’s Wild Ride

hbz-march-2018-selena-gomez-lead-1517519223
KATHERINE LANGFORD: What’s the best part of being a performer in 2018? SELENA GOMEZ: I feel like it’s become a much safer place to express your concerns or even just to have the right to say, you know, “I’m not sure I feel comfortable in this environment.” On a personal level, having done this since I was seven, it’s probably the most comfortable I’ve ever felt. Even in auditions I feel like I’m way more confident than I would’ve been in the past. I’m not focused on the things that I used to be like, “Do I look old enough? Do I look sexy enough? Do I look cool enough? Am I nice enough, graceful enough?” Those sorts of things would come...

Kendrick Lamar And SZA Embrace Afrofuturism In ‘All The Stars’

1200x600
Back in business with "Humble" collaborator Dave Meyers (the director also behind Justin Timberlake's "Supplies" — something we may have to expunge from his record), Kendrick Lamar has released the first visual from his Black Panther-curated soundtrack. "All The Stars" featuring SZA was the first release from the album, which features The Weeknd, Travis $cott, Vince Staples and more. The video sees SZA and Kendrick in many different looks and scenarios (orange velvet bandana!), all of which are centered on African themes and reference the past and future — although what we really are here for is SZA writhing around in what looks like licorice all-sorts between women swirling in pink feathers. We're in for a truly exciting time with the film's drop...
