This Video of Meghan Markle Opening Up About Media Scrutiny Is Heartbreaking

To say Meghan Markle has had a rough go in the British press since her relationship with Prince Harry went public would be a bit of an understatement. But it’s been especially rough in the past year during her pregnancy and the birth of baby Archie. If she was still a regular celebrity and actor, we probably would have seen a sit-down interview with her, a la a classic Barbara Walters special, where she revealed the toll it’s taken on her.

But such is not the way with the British royal family—usually. But as we’ve all seen, Markle and Prince Harry are doing things their own way—from the way they introduced Archie to the world to their social media style. Now, a new documentary filmed during their recent royal tour in southern Africa is apparently about to shed a lot of light on some of their most private struggles.

In a teaser clip released by ITV, Markle opens up about her feelings when director Tom Bradtby asks her about her own physical and mental health amidst all the press coverage and pressure. “I would say…look, any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable,” she says. “So that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know?”

“And especially as a woman, it’s really, it’s a lot. So, if you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed, it’s um…Yeah, well, I guess, and also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Watch the clip for yourself. Frankly, it’s heartbreaking.

Of course, there are many glamorous things that we all imagine come along with being a royal—but there’s also so much baggage that I don’t know that I’d ever want, and this clip illustrates some of that. Harry also opens up about how every camera click reminds him of the worst parts of his mother, Princess Diana’s life.

I can’t wait to see what else is revealed in the special, along with the happy and joyful moments of the tour—and hopefully more clips of Archie.

Harry & Meghan: An African Journey premieres Sunday night in the U.K. and will air on ABC on October 23 at 10 PM

Best Spray Tan Tips From Ariana Grande’s Spray Tan Artist

Some people just have the genetic disposition to look incredible with porcelain skin. (Caitriona Balfe and Cate Blanchett come to mind.) Instead, I’m naturally pale in a way that screams “have you ever seen the sun?” So the moment spray tanning became a thing, I was sold. Maybe it’s because I live in L.A., but having safe-from-the-sun, golden skin makes me feel less exposed, like I’m wearing cover-up that instantly makes me more comfortable showing more skin.

The only problem with most self-tanners is that they’re difficult to put on—either I look mysteriously splotchy, or all things go according to plan but a day or so later, my legs will itch like none other. I don’t know what it is about some at-home formulas that my skin personally reacts to, but it literally feels like a dozen mosquitos bit me. Not great.

But then I met Kristyn Pradas, the woman behind Ariana Grande, Ashley Graham, and almost every Victoria’s Secret model’s gorgeous glow. Not only did she give me the most natural-looking tan, but after two sessions a month apart, I haven’t itched once. That’s because Pradas faced a similar frustration with other tanning products that weren’t suitable for her sensitive skin. “I’ve always broken out or gotten rashes, so I wanted to create a line that was good for you and good for your skin. It was really important that my line be as natural as possible with organic ingredients like chamomile, peptides, ceramides, and marshmallow root extract.” In addition, Pradas spent years making sure the ingredients in her products weren’t only good for your body, but also for your face. They shouldn’t be interchangeable, she says.

I recently had an emergency where I got a last-minute call to go on TV and hit Pradas up in a panic. But because she can’t always be at my beck and call (if only), I asked her to share her best spray tan tips. Here, she reveals her tried-and-true lessons for a perfect (and safe) spray tan that goes further than any advice you’ll get at your local tanning studio.

The Best Spray Tan Tips You Need to Know

Exfoliate 2 to 3 days prior to your spray tan

Pradas says the most important thing you can do to ensure an evenly applied spray tan is to exfoliate really well two to three days prior—not the day of. This helps remove the dead skin cells on your body so they don’t pick up extra color which might make you look patchy. “By exfoliating a few days prior, the tan will go on flawless and actually last longer,” Pradas says. She recommends the liquid peel by Antheia Beauty, while I’ve personally always been a fan of Natura Brasil’s creamy exfoliating bar soap), especially right before shaving. Which brings me to…

Be careful what you use to shave your legs

“You can use shaving cream,” Pradas says, “but check your razor, because most razors have a moisturizing strip which will leave a film of moisture on your legs.” The problem with the moisture strip is that it works against the color and it won’t absorb as well. “If you do use a razor with a moisture strip, make sure you really rinse off your legs after shaving so there’s no residue/moisturizer left over. Oftentimes I hear from people that from the knee down, their spray tan is lighter than the rest of their body, and that’s because they didn’t properly rinse off after shaving.”

Avoid over-moisturizing

Pradas advises that you cleanse with a PH-balanced body wash after shaving, and recommends Summer’s Eve “because it doesn’t leave a residue.” She also says to stay away from your normal moisturizing cleanser or body wash before a spray tan, because that will leave a film. Otherwise, proceed as normal. But here’s the other important aspect of post-shower shaving: “When you’re out of the shower, don’t moisturize, because that will create a color barrier that defeats the purpose of the spray tan.” She says there’s one exception though, and that’s on your face, especially if you have larger pores. “A good secret is to use my Skin Essential Hydration Serum on your face, neck, and chest, which will help fill in your pores.”

Don’t forget to give your ears, brows, and nails special treatment

“A telltale sign of a spray tan gone ‘wrong’ is forgetting to put self-tanner on your ears,” Pradas says. “I’ve seen people with a tan face but pale ears, which probably isn’t the look you’re going for. That’s why when I’m doing a spray tan, I always want to make sure your ears are out of the shower cap. If you’re self-tanning at home, you can always use a synthetic makeup brush or applicator to apply a little self-tanner there.”

The Best High-Waist Jeans for Women 2019 | Glamour

There are two kinds of jeans that get people really riled up: low-rise jeans and high-waist jeans.

Over the past few years, shoppers have rediscovered the best high waisted jeans, which have shed their “mom” and “dad” reputation and have been embraced for their comfort and versatility.

Anne Hathaway’s Modern Love Episode Is a Powerful Example of Dating as a Bipolar Woman

Modern Love, the popular New York Times column turned Amazon anthology series, premieres today (October 18) with a full lineup of talented stars—Tina Fey, Dev Patel, Julia Garner, and Andy Garcia among them—and each 30-minute story takes viewers on a journey of self-discovery and love.

The first episode alone nearly wrecked me, but it’s the series’ third, starring Anne Hathaway as a bipolar woman navigating her career and relationships, that is most striking. At times, it even feels like a Broadway musical thanks to the song and dance numbers (there’s even a Mary Tyler Moore theme song homage). But it’s the overarching message about mental health that’s the most important takeaway.

The episode—inspired by author Terri Cheney’s Modern Love column “Take Me As I Am, Whoever I Am,” as well as her memoir, Maniac—follows Lexi, a brilliant and charismatic attorney who’s been hiding her bipolar diagnosis from friends and colleagues. “Anne conveyed the charisma of mania beautifully,” Cheney says of the performance. Cheney knows firsthand how difficult it is to get right on screen. “Mania is often charming, but depression is another story. It’s sometimes an off-putting experience and very hard to describe or portray. Anne captured it in a way that not only showed its anguish, but also moved the viewer to empathy.”

At first, Lexi appears to have a rewarding and glamorous life: She’s got a fantastic wardrobe, a spacious apartment, and a full dating life. But then, her depression plows through like a tornado. “I’ve seen people like Lexi, I have people in my life like Lexi, and I love people like Lexi,” Hathaway tells Glamour. “But I haven’t really seen someone like her ever on screen. So the idea that I was asked to represent someone who maybe hasn’t seen themselves on screen and could see themselves in this was exciting for me.”

To prep for the role, Hathaway spoke at length with Cheney and used her memoir as a guide. “I just let Terri’s story be my story,” she explains. “She took me through the physicality of what being manic feels like, how heavy objects become when you’re in this state of being.”

Cheney hopes viewers will take away a greater understanding of how complicated mental illness can be and recognize when loved ones might be struggling. “When you think of the illness in terms of a familiar face, it’s less frightening and easier to understand,” she says. “That’s why having someone as famous as Anne portray a woman with bipolar disorder is so terrific: It’s an antidote to shame.”

It’s also a reasons why it was so important for Hathaway to tell Cheney’s story. “I have people in my life who I love so deeply who have received various mental health diagnoses, and that’s not the whole story of who they are,” Hathaway explains. “But in many cases, because of an intolerant society, that’s the space of fear they’re kept in.”

Julie Andrews Didn’t Always Feel Worthy

Dame Julie Andrews is grateful. On the day of her interview with Glamour, it seems that everyone in her vicinity wants something from her. An autograph, a picture, and, in one case, a hug.

The 84-year-old is more than happy to oblige. She’s been a movie star for almost 60 years, but the shine hasn’t worn off—intrusions and all. “I mean, the things I’ve done, the things I’ve learned, the people I’ve met? I have been blessed.” she says. Her new memoir, Home Work, testifies to that good fortune, chronicling the larger-than-life figures and films that have animated her six-decade career.

Andrews got her start in vaudeville. After making waves in productions like My Fair Lady, she transition to film and scored leading roles in Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music back-to-back. The movies were both released to such fanfare that she’s said her sudden success felt like an “assault“—Andrews still thought of herself as that vaudeville girl with the tough childhood. It wasn’t so much that success was hard for Andrews—she has won Oscar, BAFTA, Grammy, Golden Globe, and Emmy Awards—but believing that she deserved it proved to be the greater challenge.

In Home Work, Andrews opens up about her career as well as the therapy, emotional labor, and personal growth it took to accept the accolades that came with playing the iconic Eliza Dolittle, Mary Poppins, and Maria von Trapp. Andrews co-wrote the memoir with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton. Andrews remembers that Hamilton told her, “‘Mum, there’ll be so many people out there who will be so glad that you went through some of these things, too.'” And it’s Andrews’ personal hope that, “maybe people will gain a little courage” from reading her doubts and insecurities laid bare on the page.

Andrews has supplemented on-screen roles with a spate of voiceover work, most recently in Aquaman and the forthcoming series, Bridgerton. With the book out now, she’s about to embark on on a nationwide tour. Each new film or project “I think you’re very lucky if you love what you do,” Andrews says. “I think you’re very lucky if you’re capable of love as well, and god knows I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do both,” she says.

Here, Andrews opens up about finding happiness, her divorce, and that Oscar.

On keeping her Oscar for Mary Poppins in the attic

It does seem rather ridiculous—and I do proudly display it now—but at the time I was in such a new crowd. I didn’t want to boast. I didn’t want to be like, “Come see my Oscar!” So, it was hard. There was a part of me where I felt worthy, if I felt I’d done a good performance. But to come out of vaudeville and wonder where life is going, and suddenly find myself in New York City, in a new, bigger pool. Then after that find myself in an even bigger pool than that, which was Hollywood—it is hard to know that you are worthy.

13 Best Lip Glosses of 2019: Clear, Colorful, Plumping, and More

Lip gloss is divisive. It isn’t as popular as lipstick and still can’t quite shake its association with velour Juicy Couture tracksuits and messy middle school first kisses (who didn’t keep a fresh tube of Lip Smacker lip gloss in their back pocket, just in case?). But it’s 2019 now, and we’re here to report lip gloss is actually cool again.

Thank Rihanna, who makes everything look good (her Gloss Bomb is one of her best-selling Fenty products), or Glossier, which popularized, well, anything glossy. The latest iterations offer shine, color, and comfort across the board, and those sticky, hair-catching problems you remember from the nineties and early aughts are firmly in the past.

Need proof? We asked our editors to test dozens of options and report back on the all-time best lip glosses. Here are the ones that won glowing reviews across the board.

Best Pearl Nail Art Ideas for 2019

If you’ve been keeping an eye on street style, chances are you’ve noticed that pearls are having a moment. While a string of pearls have long held a connotation for being stuffy, the new crop of accessories, often featuring single irregular-shaped pearls, are more Carrie Bradshaw than Charlotte York.

Oversized pearl earrings have been spotted recently on both Zendaya and Gigi Hadid, and Ashley Graham is a fan of pearl pendants. But it’s in the beauty sphere where pearls are really making an unexpected appearance—it’s impossible to scroll through Instagram without seeing a pearl hair clip, arguably the must-have accessory of the season, or headband, and now the trend has evolved into pearl nail art.

Think about it: Pearls are the perfect accent. They’re not as expected as diamonds, yet add a cool touch without being too flashy. And, like a French manicure mirrors the 2000s nostalgia movement in fashion, pearl manis are directly inspired by what’s happening in our jewelry boxes. The look is also surprisingly versatile, go for a single stone if you’re a minimalist, or go all the way with gem-encrusted nails on all five fingers. “Adding small pearl is easy, and you don’t need to be very savvy with a paint brush,” says nail artist Betina Goldstein, whose renditions of pearl nail art ideas have racked up thousands of likes on Instagram. “It allows you to play with color, design, or gems without overwhelming your look or hands.”

While the trend is probably easier to get if you take a photo into the salon, if you want to go the DIY route, Goldstein has some advice. “Start by painting your nails with a sheer nude like Essie in Gossamer Garments, then apply nail glue on your nail, where you want the gem to go,” she says, adding that tweezers make it easier to have full control over where you’re placing your pearls. “Cap it by applying more glue on top and then paint over it with a top coat to ensure the pearls don’t get caught in your hair.” Another helpful tip? Look for flat-back pearls (which you can buy as stickers or craft supplies on Amazon), since they’ll stay put on your nail better.

Scroll on for some of our favorite takes on the trend.

One of the more simple (but still undoubtedly cool) pearl nail art options is a single stone near the base of your nails. Use a neutral like Chanel’s Ballerina for the most effortless look.

Pair a color-blocked mani with studs for double the fun.

Up the ante of a pearl mani with different-sized embellishments.

Play up the pearls with dotted tips and combine two trends in one.

Tiny pearls are even cooler in unnatural colors.

This mani magically looks both over-the-top and effortless at the same time.

At Adeam’s Spring 2020 show, nail artist Mei Kawajiri paired pearls with “water drops.” This might be a bit much to request at the salon, but it sure makes for great eye candy.

Get in on two trends at once with a pearl French mani. This one was created by adding tiny stones to Kiss press-ons.

A sprinkle of diamonds raises the glam factor up a notch.

Elevate a nude mani with a few randomly placed pearls.

Pearls look equally as cool with something colorful, like cheeky cherries.

A bright red background and gold studs pull pearls out of the minimal category.

Chains and long tips make for a mani fit for a queen, or a pop princess.

Decorate your cuticles with a strand of pearls (try these from Amazon).

Why Your Favorite Denim Brands Are Advertising Like It’s the ’90s

When Maggie Winter was growing up, she collected stacks of J.Crew catalogs and sketched the women in their pages—those smiling, glossy-haired models in crewneck sweaters and button-down shirts. “The imagery just felt so aspirational,” she says. “Growing up in a small town, it’s like, ‘Oh, yes. Someday that’s what I want.'”

It was the ’90s and early ’00s, so her only connection with brands like J.Crew and Delia’s was through the pages that came in the mail. “I would keep them and look over them over and over again and could see myself in them,” she says. “I would imagine being that cool girl at the mall in a Delia’s book or imagine being that gorgeous girl biking down a shady beach lane in J.Crew.”

Now, two decades later, as cofounder and CEO of the beloved NYC fashion label AYR, Winter is putting out a catalog of her own—one that pays tribute to the pages of her youth while still feeling distinctly current (and, of course, peddling denim).

The old-school channel might seem like an unusual bet for a digital-native brand, but printed mailers are in the midst of a renaissance of sorts, as venture-funded start-ups look to break through the noise of social media and heritage brands try to tap into the current thirst for all things nostalgic. Which means brands like AYR, which have built a customer base largely through word-of-mouth, Instagram, and email marketing, are going analog.

In 2019 these books look a little different. AYR’s catalog—the nearly six-year-old brand’s first foray into snail mail—doesn’t feature professional models, for one: Instead, Winter and cofounders Max Bonbrest and Jac Cameron (the company’s chief operating officer and creative director, respectively) rounded up a group of friends, family, and employees, and shot them near the brand’s SoHo store, using film for a lo-fi touch. They also tapped Amelia Diamond, the former head of creative at Man Repeller, to guest-edit the book, and illustrator Julie Houts to create grown-up paper dolls complete with cartoon pizza slices and an inner monologue about the “rejuvenating mindfulness exercise” of staring at one’s closet.

AYR’s not alone in its appreciation—and embrace—of printed mailings. Last month, Guess, an iconic brand of the ’80s and ’90s, launched a campaign for climate change awareness with a zine called “Planet Saving Information.” It was inspired by one it made with the Environmental Media Association back in 1993.
