Everything to Know About The White Lotus Season 2

The White Lotus on HBO has been extended for a second season, the network announced on Tuesday, August 10. 

For the unfamiliar, The White Lotus centers on a group of wealthy travelers vacationing at an exclusive Hawaiian resort. But what starts out as a picturesque getaway soon descends into chaos as the cracks in these people’s lives form. It’s received rave reviews from critics and is currently the number one show streaming on HBO Max, per a press release. The true ensemble casts includes Jennifer Coolidge, Sydney Sweeney, Connie Britton, Alexandra Daddario, and Jake Lacy, among others. 

Here’s everything we know about The White Lotus season two: 

It’s happening. Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO programming, said in a statement, “Mike [White, the creator of White Lotus] has once again delivered a quintessential HBO show, and it’s the talk of the town. We were thrilled to hear where he wanted to go next, after closing this epic chapter in Hawaii, and can’t wait to keep following him wherever he takes us.”

No release date yet. The first season ended in August 2021. 

The premise. We’re getting a new cast of characters—and a new location. Per HBO‘s press release, “The next chapter of The White Lotus leaves Hawaii behind and follows a different group of vacationers as they jet to another White Lotus property and settle in temporarily among its inhabitants.” 

HBO Max

Will any of the original characters return? Mike White told TVLine, “I don’t think you can credibly have [all the season-one guests] on the same vacation again. But maybe it could be a Marvel Universe type thing, where some of them would come back.”

He added, “We only made one-year deals with the actors, so we’d have to find out who is even available.”

So far, at least one actor from the first season will be making an appearance. On October 15, TVLine and Deadline reported the news that Jennifer Coolidge is set to return. Though sources suggest she is in talks to reprise her role as the eccentric and insecure Tanya McQuoid, it’s possible she could be taking on a brand new character. 

We’ll keep you posted with more details as they come in.

Carrie Bradshaw’s Iconic Bodycon Dress From Sex and the City Just Got a Major Update

Very few characters in television earn the status of a real-lifef fashion icon quite like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. Of course, Gossip Girl‘s Blaire Waldorf, The Nanny‘s Fran Fine, and Scandal‘s Olivia Pope instantly come to mind, but no fictional TV leading lady had a closet with as many Manolo Blahnik as Carrie’s. 

Fast forward to 2021 and the Sex and the City reboot has the difficult task of honoring Carrie’s legacy. Thankfully, based on recent photos taken while filming in New York City, the And Just Like That costume department and Sarah Jessica Parker are facing the challenge head-on. Not only are they dressing Parker in modern looks that fit Carrie’s signature style, but they’re paying homage to some of her most memorable ’90s moments.

In season 2, episode 15 of the original series, Carrie redefined the little back dress in a simple body-hugging charcoal mini dress, classic aviators, and strappy nude sandals (click here to see the look). 

As Vogue pointed out, the And Just Like That team has given the outfit a 2021 update. On October 14, Parker was photographed outside the Au Cheval restaurant in downtown Manhattan in a form-fitting, one-shoulder Norma Kamali dress in a soft blue, paired with another pair of chic heeled sandals.

While the color and hem-length suggest a more mature version of the look, Carrie still looks just as hot (and stylish) as she did in 1999. The best part? The Norma Kamali x Revolve Diana gown is available now for $215.

Of course, this is not the only signature item from Carrie’s wardrobe that has been updated. On August 19, SJP posted a photo of Carrie’s new tutu. “Now and then,” she captioned the video alongside photos from the original Sex and the City, in which she’s wearing the same booties. 

The And Just Like That costume designers also posted the video on their Instagram, with the caption, “AND…teaching us all the art of the twirl.” On August 27, Parker was photographed in her tutu moment while filming in Brooklyn.

And Just Like That is set to hit HBO Max sometime in December 2021. Click here for everything you need to know. 


I Am Utterly Captivated By JoJo Siwa’s Dancing With the Stars Performances

Dozens of publications, including this one, have reported it: JoJo Siwa is making history! The 18-year-old has paired with professional dancer Jenna Johnson to be first same-sex couple to compete on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars

I was ready to let this piece of history go by with a feeble “woo!” JoJo Siwa is a child star, an ex-tween sensation, an alum—or perhaps, survivor—of the reality-TV show Dance Moms. Given those credentials, I wish her a lifetime of healing and happiness. She seems great, and I’m awed by the grace with which she has taken on sharing her queerness with her gigantic fan base.

But as a millennial, my emotional calendar is booked out years in advance for the sake of processing the transition to adulthood from my own generation’s child stars: Britney! Demi! Christy Carlson! I don’t know this blonde tween who has sold, according to The New York Times, more than 80 million hair bows. And I have never watched an episode of Dancing With the Stars

So tell me why I have watched every one of JoJo Siwa’s Dancing With the Stars performances upwards of five times. Tell me why I am dumbfounded in the face of this teenager wearing a wig, dancing a paso doble to a song from the Disney Chanel original movie Descendants 2. Siwa and Johnson have a beguiling shared energy, like they’ve both had their muscles replaced with something slicker and silkier. Siwa makes use of her crazed dance competition skills—she grins through each number like Abby Lee Miller is judging her—and marries them to something more authentic and joyful. 

Newly minted Siwa supporters—we are not alone. Siwa and Johnson have performed five routines during this season of Dancing and have the highest overall score of any couple. Their numbers have gone viral again and again. Watch them and tell me you won’t be back in a few days, heart in your throat and unrecognizable to yourself, to watch Siwa and Johnson dance the “Grease week” challenge. 

Week one: They danced a quickstep to “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” by Jet.

Here it is: their big debut. Do you get the song choice? They’re both girls! Siwa is honoring her roots here with a gigantic bow on her shoulder, shimmer in her crimped hair, and a neon outfit. She looks so happy. I don’t know what a quickstep is, but their feet are moving very fast and they got the highest score of the evening for this performance. 

Week two: They danced a cha-cha to “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.

Legends supporting legends. The gals are showing us a “real good time” here. The literal fireworks and tiny spangled outfits are great, but the dancers don’t really need them—their skill is so high and their chemistry is so good. 

Week three: They danced an Argentine tango to “…Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears.

It’s the little leg-slide-between-the-other-person’s-legs for me. 

Week four, part one: They danced a Viennese waltz to “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella. 

Ah yes, the gateway drug video that seduced me into the world of Siwanators (as fans are known). Siwa’s looks like she’s watching as her bride walks down the aisle—so full of pride and wonder to find herself just for a moment in a fairy-tale love story. The little low bun! The shoulder pads! “A girl being a prince isn’t ‘weird’ isn’t ‘gross’ but it’s amazing, wonderful, and magical,” she captioned an Instagram post about the performance. Yes! Yes it is magical! 

Week four, part two: They danced a paso doble to “Ways to Be Wicked” from Descendants 2.

Apparently this performance is a fan service that references the shipping of characters played by Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson in the Disney Channel Descendants movies. Even to the elderly (me, a person born in the early ’90s) there is something especially captivating about this performance. There have been criticisms that Siwa and Johnson’s routines have been too mild and platonic, whereas straight couples on the show have more sexually overt choreography. That’s worth keeping an eye on, but it’s also important to remember that Siwa is 18. This number feels charged and totally age-appropriate—two women sizing each other up and exploring an intense connection.

Here’s Exactly How to Re-create Adele’s Signature Eyeliner, According to Her Makeup Artist

Few artists can be instantly recognised by their beauty look. There’s Bowie‘s lightning stripe, Amy Winehouse‘s jumbo liner, Ariana‘s ponytail and Cher‘s waist-length raven black hair. But if we were to name a beauty look that’s quite as iconic as Adele, it would have to be her signature winged liner.

The retro ’60s liner and coquettish dolly lashes are a look that the star has made her trademark since her debut in 2007 with her album 19 and her smash hit, “Hometown Glory.” And, 14 years later, the flick may have got a little slicker and more elongated, but she remains just as committed.

After a five-year hiatus, Adele re-emerged with a 20-second clip on Instagram, teasing a pretty piano riff and those famously winged almond eyes. There could be no doubt as to who both belonged too. 

And to cement her return, the multi-grammy award winner took to the cover of Vogue, hailing her new album, 30, and some serious liner action. Adele was so taken by the work of her glam squad, she shouted them out in an Instagram post: “To glam, wardrobe, the crew, and everyone at British Vogue… In the words of Pat [McGrath, Adele’s makeup artist for the shoot] herself – ‘MAJJJJJOOORRR BAAAAABBBEZZZZ’”. 

It’s undeniable. No-one does liner quite like Adele. And, within one hour of the release of trailer for her newest hit, “Easy On Me,” searches for “Adele Makeup” explode by 9,900%, according to Just My Look. Evidently, we all want in on the action.

Luckily,  we have all the details on the products and hacks makeup legend, Pat McGrath used to create the liner the star wore on Vogue‘s front cover.
