Zoë Kravitz Opened Up About Being ‘Drawn to’ Boyfriend Channing Tatum

    Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum struck up a surprising romance last year on the set of Kravitz’s directorial debut Pussy Island, a movie title I like so much I will be including it as many times as possible. Now, Catwoman herself is opening up about how his casting and their relationship came to be.

    “I’m really grateful that this movie has brought him into my life that way,” Kravitz told WSJ Magazine of Pussy Island in a new profile, per People. “When you make things with people it’s a very sacred space, and when you’re compatible with somebody creatively it often opens up other channels, because you’re kind of sharing all of yourself.”

    For thriller Pussy Island, Kravitz wanted to cast against type. Specifically, she wanted “someone who hadn’t played a dark character before because I think that’s exciting to watch someone who’s mostly played boy next door, good guy, love interest, all of that.”

    “I felt, even from afar, before I knew him, that he was a feminist and that he wasn’t afraid of exploring that darkness, because he knows he’s not that,” she continued, again talking about a movie that is called Pussy Island. “That’s why I was drawn to him and wanted to meet with him. And I was right.”

    For his part, Tatum spoke to the magazine about the role (in Pussy Island) but not the relationship. “It’s always really intriguing to have someone bring you something that literally no one else has ever thought of you for,” he said. Zoë Kravitz began the script five years ago and wrote the part with Tatum in mind; his company is now helping to produce the project. What a match!

    Barbiecore Is Here to Stay Whether You Like It or Not

    It’s impossible to scroll through social media without noticing the abundance of hot pink right now—an aesthetic TikTokers have aptly dubbed Barbiecore, inspired by (yep, you guessed it) the iconic Mattel doll. But the bright and bold hue is more than just another color trend, it’s made its way into the cultural zeitgeist through fashion, film, and For Your Pages.

    It makes total sense. Society’s obsession with nostalgia hasn’t waned one bit. Think of all the major comebacks that have proliferated through the years. In fashion we’ve seen Juicy Couture tracksuits, tiny sunglasses, platform shoes, and chokers—all things Y2K and ‘90s —take hold. In film and television, classic reboots have landed on all the major streaming services. We love re-living these eras and moments—and there’s no one quite like Barbie who can mirror the times. 

    According to data from Klarna, consumers have Barbiecore at the top of their minds. There’s been a 970% increase in pink mini dress purchases since January 2022, a 343% increase in pink bikini purchases, and a 198% increase in pink sunglasses purchases. Similarly, the Barbiecore phenomenon spiked in Google Search Trends in May of this year. This is not at all surprising either: A photo of Margot Robbie in the upcoming Barbie movie surfaced on April 26, and it set off a vortex of pink that’s playing out to this day.

    Selena Gomez Just Kick-Started a New Fall Nail Trend

    Selena Gomez is single-handedly making olive green nail polish the shade we need in our stash for autumn.

    Her trusted nail artist, Tom Bachik, posted a picture of her freshly painted mani to his Instagram on August 15 with the caption “Olive this color on @selenagomez.” In it, Gomez rocks long ballerina-shaped nails with an offbeat martini olive green nail polish that looks somewhere between fresh leafy green and brown.

    It has exactly the sort of earthy combo that makes fall nail trends so deliciously cozy, but the unusual shade is a little more fun, upbeat, modern, and interesting. Even so, it’s muted enough to feel like a new neutral that will work well alongside autumnal color palettes of brown, burgundy, navy, white, and black, as well as the annual animal prints that will be making a swift return.

    This Selena Gomez look comes hot on the heels of another celebrity nail moment: Hailey Bieber’s glazed-donut nails, which have practically broken the beauty internet (and picked up over 53 million views on TikTok along the way).

    But moving into the next season, this offers something a little richer and more statement. Plus, it picks up where last autumn’s biggest nail trend left off. “Dark green” saw a 75% surge in interest last October with nail artists like Harriet Westmoreland serving up deep hunter greens. This time around, olive is the cooler, baby-sis shade that’s less classic but a lot more playful.

    Here are some olive green nail shades to consider adding to your kit:

    Martha Stewart Just Posted a (Probably Photoshopped) Nude Throwback

    Martha Stewart is really living her best life, huh? The formerly incarcerated queen of tablescapes and linens has fully embraced Instagram as her social media platform of choice, offering delicious peeks into her estate, her many celebrity friendships, and of course, food creations. And recently, she posted a nude. Well, a throwback nude in which her bits are concealed. Also, it’s probably not really her.

    “do you remember this????? omg!!!” Stewart wrote on Instagram under a picture of her hand holding the August 1996 issue of Spy magazine. Spy, for those who don’t know, was a majorly influential satirical publication helmed by ex-Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter that frequently mocked celebrities and elites (Donald Trump was a favorite punching bag) and almost always had Photoshopped covers to illustrate ridiculous scenarios. Zoom in even a little and you’ll see that Martha’s head appears pasted onto someone else’s body.

    In the picture (the Instagram picture, not the seashell picture), Stewart’s rocking a metallic manicure and holding the mag in front of her bookshelf. What other treasures line your walls, Martha?

    Just because she’s posting throwbacks doesn’t mean she isn’t keeping up with the times, though. After another picture of her went viral (Martha Stewart and Pete Davidson holding hands; NOT Photoshopped), she weighed in on her (joke) rumored celebrity affair, telling the press, “Pete Davidson is like the son I never had…He is a charming boy who is finding his way. I’ve invited him to come on my podcast and I look forward to hearing what he has to say.”

    No, but really, Stewart is looking for a lover closer to her own age, which is 81. And she knows just where she’ll find him: at a friend’s funeral. She recently quipped that she’s waiting for her pals to die so she can date their husbands. Now that’s a cover girl with a sense of humor!

    Prince Charles Acknowledged His Portrayal in The Crown in a Very Prince Charles Way

    As much as the royal family like to say they’re not interested in The Crown, Netflix’s fictionalized saga about their lives, Prince Charles has finally acknowledged that he’s at least familiar with how the show portrays his younger self. Because of course they watch it. Wouldn’t you? I know I would. 

    Anyway, a Scottish politician by the name of Anas Sarwar said, according to the Daily Mail, that when he first met Charles, the current heir to the throne introduced himself thus: “Hello, nice to meet you all. I’m nowhere near how they portray me on Netflix.” Sarwar added, “I thought that was a really interesting way of how you describe yourself.” Perhaps ironically for the prince, incredible awkwardness in social situations is pretty much exactly how he’s portrayed on Netflix, as played by Josh O’Connor.

    Bettmann

    I (obviously) don’t have a personal relationship with Prince Charles, so I can’t confirm or deny either way. But I do believe this is the first time that Charles has positively confirmed that he’s seen the show, which dramatizes his early relationship with Princess Diana as well as his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. Season four ends with Prince Charles’s character unloading all of his anger on Diana in a nasty fight that depicts the prince at his absolute worst—so it’s no wonder the real Prince Charles would prefer to be seen as, well, not that. 

    But no royal family member who has admitted to having seen The Crown has ever given the show major points for perfect accuracy. The most that could be said came from Prince Harry, who told James Corden (via People), “It gives you a rough idea about that lifestyle, and the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, and what can come from that.”


    Kim Kardashian Shows Off Her Sleek 40,000 Square Foot Office

    Kim Kardashian, reality star, mogul, and lover of the color greige, has consistently turned to neutral colors and minimalism in her design choices. The offices of her skincare line, Skkn by Kim, and shapewear line, Skims, are no exception. In a new video tour posted to her YouTube channel, Kardashian offers an inside look at the chic workspace, which was designed by AD100 alumni ​​Tommy Clements and Waldo Fernandez in collaboration with Michèle Lamy of Rick Owens. “She did all the furniture and helped me come up with everything that I would possibly need and love for this big space,” The Kardashians star said of Lamy.

    In her personal office within the roughly 40,000 square foot space, Kardashian shows off mockups of Skkn packaging made out of actual stone as a reference for the final designs. Echoes of those raw, earthen designs are found everywhere throughout the offices, which feature no shortage of concrete, natural stonework, and neutral tones.

    Out of the many Rick Owens pieces found in the space, Kardashian explains in the video that one of her favorites is a cavernous lounge area, a tiered earth-hued affair that was designed to be an office-appropriate version of a Rick Owens bed (Kardashian later reveals that she has an alabaster Rick Owens bed in her home, of which only three were created). This piece, however, appears to incorporate iterations of the designer’s “Glade Bench,” a walled seating design constructed from plywood and wool army blankets, for which Owens cites the filtering of sunlight through forest treetops as inspiration. Matching alabaster Rick Owens furniture is also found throughout the office, including two massive creamy white benches, which were designed in 2014 in a limited edition run of eight.

    The open-plan kitchen area boasts Donald Judd tables and a matching fleet of the influential designer’s iconic Chair 84. “I’ve really gotten into furniture lately,” Kardashian explains before moving onto a conference room, where an alabaster Rick Owens table is paired with Jeanneret chairs that Kardashian bleached to match her aesthetic. “It’s blasphemous that I did that if you know anything about furniture,” she says of the altered chairs, which became highly sought-after collector’s items after being originally designed to serve as seats for public buildings in the city of Chandigarh, India in the 1950s. The chairs are made of durable teak and cane and can easily fetch over $7,000 each. “I love it, I stand behind my decision, and I think they visually look very pleasing,” Kardashian said, steadfast and cohesive as ever in her design choices.

    Selena Gomez’s Subtle Contour Trick Is So Simple but Effective

    When it comes to makeup, it seems Selena Gomez often knows something I don’t know. Whether it’s must-have beauty products from the drug store, a clever mascara trick for lower lashes, or the newest Rare Beauty products, the beauty mogul always has something up her sleeve. Lucky for us, she’s willing to share. The latest intel she’s dishing is a very simple but effective contour hack.

    Gomez demonstrated her technique in a new TikTok where she shared an everyday makeup look. To start off, she puts on Rare Beauty primer and concealer, particularly around her eyes, nose, and jawline. Next, she shaped and filled in her eyebrows with the Rare Beauty Brow Harmony Shape & Fill Duo.

    Moving on, Gomez grabs a bronzer stick to show us her contouring method. She applies the product just under the cheekbones and along her forehead. Using upward motions, she blends only the bronzer to give it a lifted look.

    After she finishes contouring her face, she uses the bronzer stick again on the outer parts of her eyelids, giving them a bit of definition to accentuate the eyes. And just like that, she showed us how to do this—now potentially viral—contour hack without using any words but instead just a point of the finger. It’s that simple. 

    Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Warm Wishes Effortless Bronzer Sticks

    Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Liquid Touch Foundation Brush

    Gomez finished the look by adding just a bit of Rare Beauty’s viral blush, highlight, and setting powder. For the last step, she used the Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm to give the look an extra pop of color. The final result: a soft glam look that’s quite fitting for the end of summer and early fall. With the video reaching over one million likes, it’s safe to say we’ll be giving this look, and especially this hack, a try. Thank you again, Selena Gomez.

    Bella Hadid Says Her Vocal Support for Palestine Has Lost Her Jobs

    Bella Hadid’s personal brand may not be especially political, but there is one stance that she refuses to stop speaking out about—no matter how many brand sponsorships or friends she loses, or how many full-page New York Times ads she’s targeted by. And that’s her support for Palestine, where her father was born. 

    In an interview for the Rep podcast, Hadid said her outspoken advocacy for Palestine has cost her career opportunities and even relationships. “I had so many companies that stopped working with me,” she said. “I have friends that completely dropped me.” Even though she described a feeling of “anxiety” about saying or doing the “right thing,” Hadid said she believes she has all the personal experience and knowledge she needs to stand by her convictions. “I know my family enough, I know my own history enough. And that should be enough,” she said on the podcast.

    The model has not let up her advocacy as tensions between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants continue to heat up. In a June Instagram post, Hadid wrote, “Everyday I wish I could go back in time, to when I was a child, so that I could start fighting for Palestine sooner. For my family, for my elders, our history and for the people of Palestine still living, now, through this treacherous, exhausting and painful occupation.”

    “Soaking up summer,” said Moore in the caption, while her eldest daughter, Rumer Willis, commented, “You’re such a hottie mama, my god.” Indeed.
