The first look came in the form of a micro-fringe. Perhaps one of the trickiest hairstyles to pull off, Hadid wore hers sleek, shiny and paired with a high ponytail to attend her agent Luiz Mattos’s 50th birthday party with her sister, Gigi, and boyfriend Marc Kalman. Coupled with a smoldering, smoky eye, Bella’s fringe looked ultra chic, although it’s likely the look was created with a hair piece rather than the model’s real hair.

Naomi Osaka Teams Up With LeBron James to Launch Her Own Media Company

After taking tennis by storm, Naomi Osaka is now setting her sights on media.

The four-time Grand Slam singles champion announced Tuesday, June 21 that she is partnering with fellow sports icon LeBron James to launch her new media company, Hanna Kuma, which will focus on telling stories about a wide variety of cultures and social issues. 

In an Instagram post, Osaka wrote, “I’ve built my career taking a different approach than those around me. And because my journey has been so different it’s opened my eyes to all the incredible stories out there that aren’t getting told. Stories that are global, about a variety of cultures and points of view, about important social issues.” She concluded, “That’s why I’m launching Hana Kuma, a media platform focused on stories that are culturally specific but universal. Stories that are bold and playful like me.” The athlete also thanked James and all the other people who made the opportunity to build a business that’s a “true reflection” of her possible, adding that she “can’t wait to share our stories.”

On the new media brand’s Instagram page, they write that “Hana Kuma is a story-driven production company founded in the world of Naomi Osaka—renowned around the world as a tennis champion with roots in Haiti and Japan.” The post goes on to explain that in Japanese “Hana” stands for flower, while “Kuma” means bear, adding “Our work serves as a platform to amplify the juxtapositions. Our work stays grounded in universally enjoyable themes while exposing our audience to an expanded worldview—an international collection of voices and perspectives full of the nuanced details drawn from our experiences.” As for their mission, they write that, “At Hana Kuma we believe that just one idea can make a momentous impact and inspire our audience to create change. As we bring our narratives to life, we take care to deliver with the kind of pride and craftsmanship that is authentic to the cultures represented.”

Hanna Kuma is just one of many new projects Osaka has been working on lately. She also has her own skincare line, a collaboration with Nike, her own salad at Sweetgreen, and last month she announced a partnership with Modern Health, a workplace mental health platform, to help raise awareness and destigmatize mental health amongst younger people and marginalized communities.

Anne Hathaway Said This Was Her Favorite Costume From The Devil Wears Prada

Important breaking news: Anne Hathaway has revealed her fave costume from The Devil Wears Prada. Or, more precisely, the Oscar-winning actor shared which costume from the film is the most Anne Hathaway look, which definitely counts as her favorite look, right? In Interview magazine‘s cover story, Hathaway answered questions from fans and friends (of the famous variety). Fashion designer Michael Kors asked Anne Hathaway which costume from The Devil Wears Prada is the most Anne, not Andy (her character from the endlessly rewatchable 2006 film).  

“Michael Kors and I used to live in the same building. We had the most fun lobby in New York at the time,” Hathaway said by way of explaining their friendship. “But it’s a chicken-and-egg question, because what I think of as my style is so influenced by getting to work with Patricia Field and having conversations with her about how to put outfits together. But I love what I wore to the James Hoult party, that velvet Chanel coat that went to the knees, and then the miniskirt and the stockings and the slouched boots. I think it was a sample because I kept finding straight pins in it.”

So…it’s the Chanel, but not the Chanel boots outfit, that has become one of the internet’s best memes.

For the interview, Anne Hathaway also spoke to fashion designer Marc Jacobs, who asked her if there’s anything she regrets wearing. 

“There was this one time where I was very young and dressed myself for an event, and I stepped onto a red carpet and did not know my dress was see-through, and I wasn’t wearing a bra,” she said. “It was a very long carpet, and at no point did any of the people in that wall of photographers stop to give me a heads-up or offer me a jacket. I’m not naive. I don’t expect that, but it’s something I would do for another person if I saw it. And so I would erase that, just because it sucked.”


Lily Collins Looks Exactly Like Audrey Hepburn in Her Most Recent Instagram

Emily In Paris star Lily Collins has officially entered her Audrey Hepburn era. 

In a photo shared to Instagram on Tuesday, June 21, Collins looks almost exactly like the actor and timeless fashion icon. While attending a Cartier event in Madrid, Spain, Collins opted for a floral couture gown by eco-friendly designer Ronald van der Kemp, per Vogue UK. 

“Madrid magic last night with @Cartier…” Collins wrote in the caption. 

The 33-year-old wore a Cartier necklace and earrings with the dress, and added classic Hollywood glam makeup—including a red lip. She wore her (for now) dark brown hair in a high bun, with her curtain bangs framing her face. In the third and last photo she shared in the carousel post on her grid, Lily Collins looks eerily similar to Audrey Hepburn.

The silhouette of Collins’s dress is even similar to the Givenchy gowns Hepburn wore. See the post below:

Earlier this year, Netflix renewed Emily In Paris for two more seasons. The third season is currently filming, but a release date has not been announced. Based on the current timeline, however, you can probably expect season three in early 2023. 

Creator Darren Star told Glamour that he’s already been thinking about what’s next for Emily, noting that he has an idea of what the character will decide regarding Sylvie’s job offer from the end of season 2. 

“There’s no right decision here. There’s no one decision that’s going to make everybody happy or that’s even going to make Emily happy,” Star tells us. “She has some tough choices, and she’s put in the middle of a lot of sticky situations at the end of the season.”

This Smart Alarm Clock Makes Waking Up (And Going to Sleep) So Much Better

I usually begin and end my days the same way: looking at my phone a little longer than I should. There are so many TikToks to watch, so many emails to open, so much doomscrolling to spiral into. Combined with a five-day workweek, it’s not exactly a winning formula. I suspect you, dear reader, are in a similar place.

That’s where the Loftie alarm clock comes in. While the slick, shiny device is technically a smart clock, it’s a refreshingly low-key one. (It has just three buttons, a speaker, and a tiny screen that displays the time.) Loftie positions itself as a barrier between you and your smartphone, helping you get better shut-eye in the process. On top of that, it’s also a white noise machine and a warm, dimmable night light.

What really makes this alarm clock so special is its way of rousing you. The Wi-Fi-enabled device employs a two-phase alarm; the first lulls you out of deep sleep with a soft sound, then the second fully wakes you up nine minutes later with a continuous alarm. It’s no iPhone Radar (bless)—you can choose between three melodious sounds that actually make you want to get up and face the day. (My favorite is Radiance, which sounds like awakening gently during a vacation.) The brand claims that this feature mimics the way people naturally wake up, and it really does help me feel more refreshed each morning. 

I’d love my Loftie clock for its alarm alone, but its extras make getting to bed even better, too. Each device comes preloaded with relaxing nature soundscapes (including rainfall, a campfire, and the ocean) and six different white noise options. There’s also wellness audio like guided meditations, sound baths, breathwork classes, bedtime stories for kids or adults, and classical music tracks, although I haven’t fully explored all of them. And the brand is constantly updating its library, meaning you won’t run out of new sleep-inducing content.

To be clear, the Loftie alarm clock isn’t perfect—setup can be frustrating, even for people who installed their own router. The button controls are tough to get a hang of, especially if you’re used to the convenience of tapping a glass screen. The app leaves much to be desired, and the (thankfully infrequent) updates take much longer than you’d expect. And of course, the $149 price tag is quite the investment for an alarm clock.

The thoughtful details are what make Loftie live up to the hype, though. Its soothing alarm makes me feel like I got better sleep, and its deep library of sounds helps me to drift off to sleep without requiring an air conditioner or humidifier droning in the background. Its amber light isn’t exactly a reading light, but it’s bright enough to make sure you can get to the bathroom without stubbing your toe on the way. It even has a rechargeable battery that helps it keep running in the event of a nighttime power outage. As far as these things go, this clock is pretty much the definition of helpful tech.

Tessa Thompson Wore an Appropriately Otherworldly Sheer Gown to the Westworld Premiere

Tessa Thompson isn’t simply on trend—the sheer dress moment marches on, healthy as ever—she’s also on theme. 

The actor arrived at the New York City premiere of HBO’s Westworld season 4 in a see-through long-sleeve Interior dress, which she styled over nude briefs. The sheen on what appears to be a sheer silk organza material, paired with her copper-colored makeup and finger waves, give the look a shiny, futurist feel. You might call it otherworldly…

See the look below:

Speaking with Vogue, Interior co-founder Lily Miesmer called the clothing presented in her 2022 collection “familiar” but “a little fucked up”—which is also exactly how I would describe the futuristic people robots that populate the show. Authentic!

Thompson added a black velvet choker, which appears to wrap around the back of her ponytail, and a single pearl ring to finish off the look. 

Tove Lo Says We’ve All Been Pronouncing Her Name Incorrectly For Years

“You can think of it as voulez vous, ‘Too-vahlu,’” she said in the TikTok. In the caption, she wrote, “@duolingo help a girl out?”

This week, Tove Lo announced her fifth studio album, Dirt Femme, and dropped the first single, “True Romance.” The musician says that the album is about her relationship with her femininity, telling Pitchfork,  “When I started out as a writer and an artist, I used to view my feminine traits as weaker and would enhance my masculine traits to get ahead in life.”

“I feel a big energy shift in my environment since then and this album reflects the various ways my feminine side has both helped and hurt me,” she continues. “I’m a pansexual woman married to a straight man. I believe masculine and feminine lives on a spectrum in all humans.” 

She adds that songs on Dirt Femme “will contradict each other, will probably upset some of you, will make you want to dance, cry, fuck, and drive your car really, really, fast.” 

Voulez vous, Tove Lo? Oui!

Dirt Femme comes out on October 14, 2022.

Queer Pop’s Next Generation Is Pushing The Boundaries Of A Sexphobic Society

By Carson Mlnarik

On March 25, 2021, listeners were captivated, aroused, and scandalized by a rapper’s shameless descriptions of gay sex. “Shoot a child in your mouth while I’m ridin’,” Lil Nas X quips on “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” complete with an explicit visual in which he makes out with himself in the Garden of Eden and, of course, gives Satan a lap dance. Critics celebrated it as an “unabashedly queer” work of art, something the artist nodded to when he took home Video of the Year at the 2021 VMAs. “I want to say thank you to the gay agenda,” Lil Nas X said during his acceptance speech, marking not only an edifying moment for a rising musician, but a milestone for queer representation.

Only a decade earlier, Adam Lambert was lambasted for kissing a male bassist during a 2009 AMAs performance, Frank Ocean divided fans with an open letter on Tumblr about his sexuality, and Mary Lambert’s use of same-gender pronouns in Macklemore’s 2013 hit “Same Love” felt subversive. While heterosexual artists have long had the freedom to sexually express themselves in music, the success of moments like “Montero” signifies a turning point for LGBTQ+ artists. Now, they’re not only able to be candid about their lovers — they’re allowed to get sexy, too.

Some of today’s biggest artists have built their careers off being explicit, like bisexual pop star Slayyyter, whose songs casually boast lyrics like, “I am the queen, white castle / Pussy real fat with a tight bleached asshole.” She tells MTV News that she’ll “say anything,” explaining that her songs have “a tongue-in-cheek vibe” to them. “There’s a character of humor in them where even though it’s sexual, there’s an element of like, ‘There’s no way she just said that.’”

The St. Louis-born artist took inspiration from Y2K culture and bimboism in crafting her in-your-face persona and the titillating visuals for her most recent album Troubled Paradise. It is an unhinged electro-pop joyride that finds her owning the title of “Throatzilla” on one track and demanding that a lover “better grab my boobs when I ask you” on another. Inspired by the defiant energy of acts like Ke$ha, Slayyyter set out to make “really sexual music” after being turned off by the “formulaic” pop machine. Her tight-knit fans seem to understand that her raunchy lyrics are delivered with a wink and a nod, and even outside of the queer pop scene, Slayyyter thinks songs like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” help push the limits.

“I feel like people are starting to break down the barriers of, ‘This is appropriate to say in a song and this is not,’ which is great,” she says. “I feel like we should be more sexual in our music. It’s fun.”

Slayyyter feels she has carte blanche to express her sexuality without being written off by collaborators and fans, a luxury not always afforded female cultural icons. “I feel like back in the early 2000s or in the ’90s, bimbo-type women were treated so badly,” she explains. “It was this thing, if you were blonde and hot, you were [considered] dumb [but now] it’s become this feminist movement.

Meanwhile, Kim Petras did not mince words on her most recent EP Slut Pop, an over-the-top, raunchy Valentine’s Day collection featuring horny tracks like “Treat Me Like a Slut,” “They Wanna Fuck,” and “Throat Goat.” Acts like Fletcher, Girl in Red, and Troye Sivan have also left little to the imagination with their own lyrical references to sexuality. This openness has inspired queer pop’s next generation to go there with their music, helping to destigmatize queer sex and push the boundaries of a sexphobic society.

Today’s class of LGBTQ+ pop stars, like Jordy, recall growing up listening to heterosexual artists like Avril Lavigne and Backstreet Boys sing about their relationships. It’s only natural they’d do the same. “My mindset is, if I was able to connect with straight artists as a kid, not only should queer people be able to connect with my music, [but] so should straight people,” he tells MTV News.

Born in the suburbs of Chicago, the TikTok-approved singer came out as gay in a “super supportive and accepting community,” so when it came to his career, he felt a duty to remain authentic about his experiences for fans who might not have the same support. “I feel comfortable wearing my heart on my sleeve. I’ve been doing it since I was 15,” he explains.

And he certainly spares no detail. His latest single “Dry Spell” dropped with a candid confession: “I wrote this song about how I’m horny AF but too sensitive of a human for casual [sex] lol does anyone relate.” Its opening words casually profess, “Kinda sucks to be the guy / Who likes to fuck but loves to cry.” And while his same-gender references have resonated with LGBTQ+ fans, his blunt and open discussion of sex resonates widely. “It’s about the pronoun, but it’s also just about bad hookups, and hookup culture, and gay people, and straight people, and bisexual people, and transgender people,” he says. “Any human on any spectrum of sexuality or gender can relate to those experiences.”

His debut album Mind Games is flecked with the same frank candor. “Better in My Head” references gay hookup culture — “At this point, it’s a habit / For me to go to his place / Then walk in with shame and wishin’ that I hadn’t” — while “If He’s in Your Bed” advises listeners to “Don’t cancel all your plans just for some shitty head.” “[My collaborators and I] all looked at each other and we were like, ‘Can I say that?’” Jordy recalls. “It’s just real. I want to say the things that people are too afraid to say, that’s my job.”

We might have reached an era where the LGBTQ+ community is able to sing freely about sex and top the Billboard charts. Yet the recent flurry of anti-transgender legislation passed in states across the country, as well as Florida’s infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill have shown that while acceptance has hit the airwaves, the act of singing openly about queer sex is, in some circles, still radical. “I do think there’s always going to be a political aspect to it because there are people who are going to associate sexuality with their political stance on things,” says Jack Irvin, a music and culture writer who’s also contributed to MTV News. “I don’t necessarily think it’s a political act to create a song like ‘Call Me By Your Name,’ but I would almost say to release it is when it becomes political, because then you’re putting it into the hands of people [with] thoughts and opinions that they probably already made before they even clicked on the song.”

Perhaps the biggest sign of progress is that our queer pop stars can not only frankly sing about sex but also live out their lives as members of the LGBTQ+ community in the open. “We’ve always had queer music, but it’s the queer pop spectacle of it all that I actually think makes the major impact on society,” Irvin says, pointing to artists like Sivan and Lil Nas X whose careers span beyond music into film, TV, and brand deals. “It’s when queerness isn’t something that you can just avoid by turning off the radio, it’s everywhere.”
