Cardi B Just Made Important Feminist History

gettyimages-839589668-1506359761
When Taylor Swift released her fifth album, 1989, in October of 2014, 24-year-old Cardi B—whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar—was an unknown stripper in the Bronx with a refreshingly unfiltered Instagram. Today, her debut solo single, "Bodak Yellow," seemingly came out of nowhere (although it's been in the top 10 for a month) and topped Swift's much-anticipated, talked-about, and blogged-out single "Look What You Made Me Do" on the Billboard Hot 100. That's history-making in and of itself. But if you dig a little deeper, Cardi B's achievement is actually even more momentous. Most notably, she's the first solo female rapper since Lauryn Hill in 1998, with "Doo Wop (That Thing)," to top the Billboard Hot 100 in nearly 19 years. (Others, like Iggy Azalea and Lil' Kim, have...

Gladiator Sandals Never Go Out Of Style

PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 03:  Models walk the runway during Chanel Cruise 2017/2018 Collection at Grand Palais on May 3, 2017 in Paris, France.  (Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images)

You’d be hard pressed to find a longer reigning footwear trend than gladiator sandals. Not only do they conjure up visions of Greek goddesses and the Roman Empire, but they take us back to original bohemian bombshells à la Pattie Boyd dancing through the summer of love—or more recently, the Insta babes of Coachella rocking bold styles strapped from their ankles to their knees. Karl Lagerfeld featured gladiators in Chanel's latest Cruise show, and Rihanna rocked a killer pair with her most-Instagrammed Met Ball look, putting these classic sandals back in the spotlight again.

Taylor Swift Is Already Wearing This Major Winter Trend

taylor-swift-is-already-wearing-this-major-winter-trend-1968522-1478622404-640x0c
When we got around to predicting winter's biggest trends, the style we dubbed "cat lady" topped our list. With leopard-print coats (and even leggings) popping up everywhere, we had a feeling the tide would only continue to rise. Well, Taylor Swift gave the look her seal of approval, going so far as to layer her cat-inspired pieces while out in NYC. Swift celebrated the birthday of the musician Lorde dressed in a cat-emblazoned top by Dolce & Gabbana, which she styled with a sleek leopard coat by A.L.C. Both pieces are feline-inspired, but they complement each other without feeling too overpowering. As the proud owner of two cats (Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson), Swift spearheading this bold trend doesn't surprise us at all....

Gigi Hadid Spills The Details On Taylor Swift’s Halloween Party

1478119621-hbz-tswift-party-index
Taylor Swift knows how to treat her #Squad to a proper girls' outing (did you see the pictures from her Fourth of July bash?) and Halloween is no exception. Though the singer threw a more low-key celebration at her house on Monday, it still looked like a fun night, if the Instagram photos taught us anything. This morning, Swift's bestie Gigi Hadid spilled the details on their laid-back costume party. (In fact, the vibes were so laid-back that the model nonchalantly passed Swift off as "my friend" rather than mention her name.) "It was really cool, we were all working so my friend had a little, like, girls' night at her house," she told Matt Lauer on the Today Show. "We...

Update: Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have split after three months of dating, Us Weekly reports. No word on how much closer Hiddleston is to landing that coveted James Bond role as of now. “She was the one to put the brakes on the relationship,” a source told the publication. “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with. Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn’t listen to her concerns when she brought them up.” The source added that Hiddleston is “embarrassed that the relationship fizzled out.” Scroll down for today’s earlier post, to learn how the couple found themselves on the rocks—though not for a steamy make-out sesh this time. Fun fact: Taylor Swift has been linked to many famous leading men over the years, but...

landscape-1449498687-hbz-taylor-swift-grammy-index
Taylor Swift is the world's highest-paid artist according to Forbes' annual celebrity 100 list. The singer earned $170 million from June 2015 to June 2016, with her album 1989 selling 5 million copies in the US alone. Her total earnings, which were more than double her previous highest of $80 million, were boosted by lucrative endorsements with Keds, Diet Coke and Apple. Her ranking puts her ahead of her rival Katy Perry, who secured the top spot last year. Perry is widely believed to be the inspiration behind Swift's song "Bad Blood." One Direction took second place, taking $110 million for their last world tour, despite the departure of Zayn Malik. Other celebrities who feature on the list include Adele, who was number 9...
