I have a weakness for bags. Tote bags, trendy bags, classic bags, bags I’ll carry once or twice then display in my closet like multi-pocketed pieces of artwork. Maybe it’s because I grew up fascinated by the Olsen twins’ giant bags. (What were they carrying in those bags? Each other?) Maybe it’s because I saw this photo of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian carrying matching Louis Vuitton bags on a particularly formative day. All I know is that I search early-aughts Chanel bags on The Real Real more than I’d care to admit. Actually, who am I kidding? I’m proud of the way I spend my free time. Some people have ASMR videos. I have bags.

And while I technically don’t need any more bags, one or two extras wouldn’t hurt, right? I’ve been saving for a rainy day, and it’s the holiday season, after all. I should treat myself—as should you. I can’t exactly afford the bags the celebrities, below, are carrying, but they can serve as inspo for my next purchase. And yours.

Dion’s tiny zebra-print top-handle bag is the perfect foil to her two-tone denim look.

Longoria’s all-black outfit is perfect for showing off an Hermès shoulder bag.

Sometimes it’s fun to match your bag to your dress, like Brown. A coordination queen. Her petite top-handle bag gets all my roses.

I love a good crossbody bag: You get all the style benefits of tote but still have your hands free. Duff reaped the benefits of her Dior crossbody by picking up coffee. I’d probably use my hands to … carry more bags.

Jamil’s yellow mini bucket bag is tonally aligned with her shades-of-tan outfit but provides a punchy pop of color.

Punky Brewster would never, but, man, I would. What would I put in this Celine Luggage bag? Ten-thousand sticks of gum? Three smaller handbags? The Olsen twins would be proud.

Leave it to Posh Spice to perfectly match her purple velvet clutch and heels. She deserves a Pulitzer for pulling this off.

Friends Is Leaving Netflix for Good in January 2020

The day many Netflix users have dreaded for months is finally upon us: We now know when Friends is leaving the streaming platform.

This isn’t a total surprise, as the announcement that the show would move to Warner Bros. new streaming platform HBO Max came in July—but that doesn’t make it any less of a bummer. Plus, HBO Max isn’t slated to launch until the spring. That means there will be a few months without your Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey, and Ross fix.

As of January 1, 2020, Friends will no longer be streaming on the platform, according to the recently updated “availability” section on the show’s official landing page. HBO Max’s official launch date has not been announced yet.

“HBO Max will bring together the diverse riches of WarnerMedia to create programming and user experiences not seen before in a streaming platform,” WarnerMedia Entertainment and direct-to-consumer chairman Robert Greenblatt said about the acquisition at the time. “HBO’s world-class programming leads the way, the quality of which will be the guiding principle for our new array of Max Originals, our exciting acquisitions, and the very best of the Warner Bros. libraries, starting with the phenomenon that is Friends. Under the leadership of two of the strongest creative visionaries—Casey Bloys (HBO) and Kevin Reilly (original content and acquisitions)—and two of the most experienced digital experts, Tony Goncalves and Andy Forssell, I have no doubt they and their dedicated teams will deliver the world’s best storytelling to audiences of all ages wherever and whenever they want it.”

But your Friends will still be there for you through the holidays, thank goodness. So get your fill of Smelly Cat, Ugly Naked Guy, Mrs. Chanandler Bong, and all that ’90s fashion while you can and take heart in the news that a reunion special is reportedly in the works for HBO Max.

“We would love for there to be something,” Jennifer Aniston recently told Ellen DeGeneres. “But we don’t know what that something is. So we’re just trying. We’re working on something.”

Rihanna Wins Her First-Ever Fashion Award For Fenty

It’s not at all surprising that anything Rihanna touches turns to gold: months after launching her fashion line Fenty, she’s snagged her first big award. At the British Fashion Awards in London Monday night, the 31-year-old was presented with the Urban Luxe award for her contributions to sportswear by another icon, Janet Jackson.

“You’re loved for your style, you’re respected as an artist, entrepreneur, and for the first black woman to start a brand with LVMH,” said Jackson.”

According to Vogue, the prize was created by the British Fashion Council to honor contemporary labels that elevate the concept of casual. The same award went to Off-White’s Virgil Abloh last year. Rihanna—always repping her own creations—wore a mint-green Fenty minidress (with a bedazzled back), a sheer jacket and gloves, and satin heels in the same shade. Rihanna was previously nominated for her Fenty x Puma collaboration in 2017.

During the last few years, the musician has proven herself a force to be reckoned with in the fashion and beauty world, setting new standards with everything she creates, like introducing 40 inclusive shades of foundation in her Fenty Beauty collection. Beauty brands offering extended, diverse colors to suit women across a large spectrum of skin tones feels obvious now, but just two years ago it was groundbreaking. She also did it with her debut fashion show for her Savage X lingerie, featuring an inclusive cast of models that felt like an antidote to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s parade of tall, thin, mostly white, women (and she’s since been credited with helping kill the VS spectacle, which was officially canceled earlier this month.) And with her luxury fashion house, Fenty, she’s the first black woman to lead a brand under the LVMH umbrella. (LVMH, the fashion conglomerate that owns Louis Vuitton and Dior, is Fenty’s parent company.)

Rihanna is both CEO and artistic director of Fenty, whose prices run higher than her past fashion collaborations but sit at the lower end of the luxury bracket: T-shirts start at around $200 and outerwear goes up to $1,500. More important, Fenty is built on and follows many of the same principles that have defined Rihanna’s various retail ventures, with representation at its core.

Why Did We All Have Side Bangs in the 2000s?

“As someone who (this is true) once won a giant Tweety Bird at a fair because someone guessed I was six when I was 12, I spent most of the early 2000s desperately trying to look my actual age. Somehow I hoped side bangs would help? I pinned my hopes and dreams on Miley Cyrus, whose bangs seemed to imply a certain level of maturity that I obviously lacked. Did it work? All I know is that I still get asked for ID at bars. I’m 27.” —Mattie Kahn, culture director

“I got thick side bangs because I, for some reason, was very taken with the idea of being a woman who haphazardly gives a subtle shake of her head to get them out of her eyes. I also was inundated with images of 2000s-era Mischa Barton and Jennifer Aniston, both of whom were massive superstars at the time and looked so fresh and modern with sideswept fringe.” —Perrie Samotin, digital director

“Nicole Richie was always my girl. I was obsessed with her Rachel Zoe boho chic makeover, loved her on The Simple Life, and for a long time (once she got the makeover, obvi) she was my style icon. While I couldn’t afford her clothes, I COULD get her bangs. And boy did I ever. To very mixed results…” —Samantha Leach, assistant culture editor

I don’t really remember why I got The Bangs. Judging by my other choices at the time, I think I wanted to seem fashion-y, but also like someone who has a lot of feelings (read: emo girl). And they gave me a great excuse to flirtatiously brush hair out of my eyes. —Sarah Olin, art director

Another Downton Abbey Movie Is in the Works—Here’s What We Know

The Downton Abbey movie surprised and delighted longtime fans when it hit theaters in September. The film gave us so many big screen gems—a ballroom scene, a royal plot line, tons of Violet Crawley zingers. It was so well received, in fact, that a second film is in the works. The news was confirmed in November 2019 by a producer. Here’s what we know about it so far:

The cast wants to work together again.

The Downton Abbey regulars have talked about how much fun it was to get the team back together for the movie. Michelle Dockery, who plays eldest Crawley sister Mary, indicated that she definitely welcomes another chance to work with the cast. “Because we loved doing it so much, [when we wrapped] it was definitely that feeling like, Oh, we could do this again, and it would be wonderful to all get back together,” she told *Harper’s Bazaar*. She added that a lot of it would be up to the film’s reception, which has been great so far. “We have such a good time. But that really depends on how it’s received. It will be really interesting to see the reaction,” she said.

Joanne Froggatt, who plays Anna Bates, also seemed excited about the idea and said that, to her, the story “never ends.” But she added, “I guess it’s down to the fans, isn’t it? I mean, if it’s popular and people love it, and, of course, there’s scope to do something else.”

Writer Julian Fellows is already thinking about ideas.

The Sun also reports that the show’s writer, Julian Fellowes, is already writing a script. He didn’t confirm or deny the rumors, telling *Vanity Fair* simply, “I mean, I wouldn’t mind making another film. We were very happy making this one. So let’s see what happens.”

Allen Leech, the actor who plays Tom Branson, made it clear to the Hollywood Reporter that Fellowes is prolific and probably already finalizing a plot. “What I love about what Julian always does is when it looks like he’s finishing a storyline, he’s actually starting one,” he said. “It would be very interesting to see what would happen. I think we would all be up for it. It all comes down to how this one does. If people really love it and there really is an appetite, then why wouldn’t we do it?”

This Awkward Dakota Johnson and Ellen DeGeneres Interview Will Keep You Up at Night

Most people know Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele from Fifty Shades of Grey, but I know her as “celebrity who gives the most iconic interviews on talk shows.” Seriously, if you haven’t gone down a Dakota Johnson interview hole, then I strongly suggest you do. She is refreshingly unfiltered with a dry, almost awkward sense of humor. Look at this clip from The Tonight Show—when she shut down Jimmy Fallon for not letting her talk—or her acceptance speech from the 2016 People’s Choice Awards as proof. (Before getting to the microphone she had a slight wardrobe malfunction and said, “It’s not like nobody here hasn’t already seen my boobs.”)

The latest example of Johnson’s quick wit happened last week during her interview on The Ellen Show. Host Ellen DeGeneres claimed Johnson didn’t invite her to her birthday party in early October—which Johnson countered in a cheeky, deadpan tone.

“Actually, no. That’s not the truth, Ellen. You were invited,” Johnson said. “Last time I was on the show, last year, you gave me a bunch of shit about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited.”

“Who doesn’t want to be invited to a party?” DeGeneres asked, to which Johnson said, “Well, I didn’t even know you liked me.”

“Of course, I like you! You know I like you! You’ve been on the show many times,” DeGeneres replied.

But Johnson contests that she did invite DeGeneres to her party. Their exchange gets even more hilariously awkward from there, with DeGeneres ultimately realizing she was out of town the weekend of Johnson’s birthday. (A few people have pointed out Johnson’s party was the same weekend DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were photographed at a football game in Dallas with former president George W. Bush.)

Watch the interview for yourself, below:

Twitter is having an absolute field day with this—though it’s important to note there probably wasn’t any actual tension between Johnson and DeGeneres, as some have suggested. This was clearly just a funny miscommunication between two celebs, and Johnson’s sense of humor just gave off the illusion of awkwardness. Nevertheless, the reactions are gold.

One thing is for sure: You can count on Ellen DeGeneres attending Dakota Johnson’s birthday party next year.

Khloé Kardashian’s Response to Tristan Thompson Saying ‘I Love You’ Is So Awkward

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have been estranged ever since earlier this year, when news broke that he and Kylie Jenner‘s best friend, Jordyn Woods, kissed at a party. The two of them play nice for the sake of their daughter, True, but they very much are not a couple right now. Remember in April, when that video of Kardashian ignoring Thompson at True’s first birthday party went viral? That about sums up their relationship status.

But something happened on this week’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians that’s even more awkward. In one scene, we see Kardashian FaceTiming True and Thompson from Connecticut. When Thompson ends the conversation by saying, “I love you,” Kardashian’s response is a bit tense. All she says is “Thank you.”

The reply is so icy, in fact, that Kardashian’s friend Malika Haqq calls her out for it. “I love you. ‘Thank you,'” she says in the clip, laughing.

“I don’t know what to say,” Kardashian says. “I just think now, I’ve already seen how this ride goes, and I don’t enjoy it. Why would I want to do it for a third time?”

Watch this go down for yourself in the video, below. The episode aired this past Sunday on E!

Khloé Kardashian has been quite open with her followers and fans about the Tristan Thompson-Jordyn Woods situation. “This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have. Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time,” she tweeted shortly after the incident happened.

The reality star continued, “What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault. I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9 P.M. on E!
