A Model With a C-Section Scar Posed for Sports Illustrated Swim for the First Time Ever

Sports Illustrated Swim is showcasing, for the first time in its 58-year history, a model with a visible C-section scar.  

The spread features Kelly Hughes, a model and mother who delivered her child via C-section and has previously worked with the brand. The Sports Illustrated Swim issue has historically featured photos of models, athletes, and celebrities modeling swimwear in various locales across the world ever since it was first published in 1964. Now, Sports Illustrated Swim‘s Pay With Change initiative is meant to shift the mainstream cultural narratives associated with women’s bodies. 

To that end, Chelsea Hirschhorn—the founder of Frida Mom, a company whose mission is to support women through their physical transformation into motherhood—was asked to serve on the advisory board and worked with Sports Illustrated Swim to make the Pay With Change partnership and photo happen. The goal, per a press release, was “to authentically show the beauty of motherhood and make women who’ve gone through a C-Section feel proud of the way they brought a baby into the world—no matter which way—and to normalize conversation around all postpartum recoveries and bodies.” 

The Sports Illustrated Swim spread with Kelly Hughes.

“Joining Sports Illustrated as its first official Pay With Change brand partner is a perfect fit for Frida Mom because they have a valuable platform to disrupt the traditional narrative around womens’ bodies—especially those they feature who are mothers,” Hirschhorn, a soon-to-be mom of four tells Glamour. “We’re thrilled that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit appreciates the importance of highlighting these women authentically, C-Section scars and all, and welcome the progress we will make together as a result of this shared commitment.” 

For Hughes, it was the “opportunity of a lifetime” to do the shoot. “This photo is so much more than just a photo to me,” she tells Glamour. “There is an incredible shift happening in our society today with inclusivity and to be empowered by our imperfections. To be given this opportunity while showing my C-Section scar for the first time ever represents more than any photo I’ve ever taken.”


It Looks Like Jennifer Lopez Just Went Expensive Brunette

We’re currently in what I like to call the Chameleon Era for celebrity hair. Between wigs and bleach and willing scissor-wielding stylists, stars from every area of entertainment have been switching up their looks so much, it can be hard to keep up. But while famous folks like Megan Thee Stallion and Florence Pugh keep us on our hair-watching toes, there are still a handful of celebs who stick to one thing that works for them, like Jennifer Lopez and her golden highlights.

But wait — what’s this? Did Jennifer Lopez just stray from her usual warm blondeness? 

Lopez posted a carousel of photos to her Instagram grid on Monday, May 9, in which she’s posing for several mirror selfies. “It’s Monday 🤍 #LetsGetIt,” she wrote in the caption, completely glossing over the fact that her hair looks significantly darker than it usually does. The middle-parted, layered style appears to be a medium brunette shade closer to her natural color.

In the photos that follow, we can see that Lopez’s hair is definitely still highlighted, albeit not the way it normally is. Instead of the warm, golden blonde we’re accustomed to seeing on the superstar, she’s showing off a much cooler-toned color. It’s unclear if hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons, who styled her hair for what appears to be a JLo Beauty shoot, also colored it for the occasion, but bravo nonetheless.

I realize this change isn’t really of the same magnitude as if she’d, say, dyed her hair green, but when you’ve got a signature look that has lasted literal decades, any noticeable shift in shade is a pretty big deal. Could this be the beginning of Lopez’s very own Chameleon Era? Regardless of if she keeps changing things up, don’t be fooled by the locks that she got — she’s still (she’s still) Jenny from the block.

19 AAPI-Owned Beauty Brands Essential to Any Routine

However minimalist or complex your skincare and makeup routine may be, it wouldn’t be the same without the influence of AAPI-owned beauty brands. Think about it: a dewy glow is practically synonymous with Tatcha’s celeb-loved skin-care line, a sleep mask infused with watermelon and hyaluronic acid (hi, Glow Recipe) is a nonnegotiable to self-care Sunday, and we can bet you’ve flirted with Korean sunscreens to amp up your SPF game. The impact Asian- and Asian American-owned brands have had on the beauty landscape is far-reaching, and it’s made room for products and ingredients that are downright game-changing. (Looking at you, “bee glue”.) 

Many of these brands sit at the forefront of the industry, thanks to founders both stateside and abroad who have captured longstanding skin-care and wellness rituals and distilled them into products that meet—and most certainly redefine—contemporary beauty standards. Without their contributions, we may have never known how to achieve glass skin, experience the no-smudge glory of South Asian kohl eyeliners, or even think to double cleanse before slugging. From mainstays like Peach & Lily to newcomers like Eadem, it would be an understatement to say that routines everywhere would be a lot more sparse if weren’t for the many Asian- and AAPI-owned beauty brands serving up powerhouse formulas. Check out some of our favorites below and shop their stand-out items—including a must-have dark spot corrector, the ultimate bronzer for sensitive skin, and so many more products worthy of a prime spot on your counter. 

When Rooshy Roy realized her skin was missing its natural glow, she founded Aavrani, which pays homage to her Indian heritage by combining ingredients and practices from ancient rituals with modern-day skin science. Don’t skip the much-loved Balance Restoring Serum—it makes your skincare work harder for you by allowing ingredients to penetrate the skin. We also love the Glow Activating Exfoliator, which uses turmeric as an anti-inflammatory to calm sensitized skin. 

Priscilla Tsai’s experience with cystic acne (both as a teenager and an adult) prompted her to quit her job as an equity researcher at J.P. Morgan and launch Cocokind, a skin-care brand that specializes in gentle yet effective formulas at affordable price points. You can find Tsai’s many products—including the Glamour Beauty Award-winning Cocokind Ceramide Barrier Serum—at major retailers like Ulta, Target, and Whole Foods.

Eadem is a relative newcomer in the beauty space—the brand was built during the pandemic—but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming one of the buzziest brands on the market. (The brand won a Glossier Grant for Black-Owned Businesses and is part of Sephora’s Accelerate Incubator Program.) Founders Alice Lin Glover and Marie Kouadio Amouzame first set out on a mission to challenge existing notions of skincare with Milk Marvel, a dark spot serum formulated to safely treat hyperpigmentation in melanin-rich skin. Most recently, the brand launched Cloud Cushion, a niacinamide-infused moisturizer that’s the perfect follow-up to Milk Marvel. 

Ellis Brooklyn began as the brainchild of New York Times columnist Bee Shapiro in 2015, when she was pregnant with her first daughter Ellis (hint, hint) and couldn’t find any luxury nontoxic fragrances to use. Inspired to fill that white space gap, Shapiro launched her own brand of clean, high-quality fragrances, including perfumes, candles, and body-care essentials.

Everyday Humans was founded by Charlotte Chen Pienaar, who set out to make a sunscreen brand that’s as easy on the planet as it is on your skin. Take the newly-launched Rose From Above for instance. According to the brand, the sunscreen base (intended to be used as you would a primer) is infused with rosehip oil from industrial by-products that would otherwise be thrown out. You also don’t want to miss Big Mood, the lip balm with SPF30 that tastes like an oat milk latte.

Watermelon sleeping masks? Avocado-infused serums? Banana soufflé creams? All of these juicy, fruit-infused best sellers perched on your vanity are likely from Glow Recipe, the fruit-first K-beauty brand that’s brought multiple-step skin-care routines to the masses. 

It can be hard to find over-the-counter acne treatments that actually work, but Hero Cosmetics is proof of concept that they can. After learning Koreans were using hydrocolloid patches to treat pimples, cofounder Ju Rhyu brought the idea stateside. She launched the brand on Amazon with one hero product: the Mighty Patch, which is a vegan sticker spot treatment that works overnight miracles on pimples. Hero Cosmetics has since expanded to cleansers, toners, and serums—all available at mega-retailers like Target and Ulta (and Amazon, of course).

Is there anything more fun than colorful eyeliner? (Answer: No.) Founded by Priyanka Ganjoo, Kulfi is all about celebrating the South Asian community through self-expression and beauty—and the brand carries a range of rainbow kajal liners that’ll get even the most minimalist beauty lovers to play around with makeup. 

Kulfi Beauty Underlined Kajal Eyeliner

Jin Soon Choi’s nontoxic nail polishes are a beauty editor staple: The 10-free formulas are as long-lasting as they are beautiful, whether you’re looking for dark, moody shades or summer-ready brights. 

It wasn’t long ago that at-home gel manicures were a far-flung idea. But many of us became mani aficionados thanks to brands like Le Mini Macaron, which make the daunting process of DIY mani-pedis much more accessible. Founded by Christina Kao (originally from Alabama, but now located in Barcelona), Le Mini Macaron’s suite of nail tools and polishes exploded in popularity during the pandemic and are now ubiquitous across beauty shelves. You can pick one of the LED macaron babies everywhere from Urban Outfitters to Ulta.

Patrick Starrr, Filipinx-American Youtube vlogger-turned-beauty-entrepreneur, founded One/Size as a nod to the fact that makeup is a one-size-fits-all situation, unlike fashion. If you want to give your face a proper beat, this is the brand for you—but don’t let its highly-pigmented blushes and bronzers fool you—they’re all totally buildable.

Vietnamese celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta (a.k.a. the master behind some of Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell’s glowiest looks) launched his eponymous beauty line in 2019. You’ll find everything here from romantic cream blushes to lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes with serious color payoff. 

Your road map to glass skin begins (and ends) here. Founder Alicia Yoon trained as an esthetician in South Korea before launching Peach & Lily, the K-beauty brand known for its potent, fast-absorbing formulas (featuring ingredients like hyaluronic acid, fatty acids, peptides, and minerals) to give your skin instant bounce. 

Soft Services

Brought to you by Glossier alums Annie Kreighbaum and Rebecca Zhou, Soft Services’ targeted body treatments are meant to be as desirable as any other hyped-up beauty product on your want list. Case in point: The brand’s Carea cream—which is housed in a sleek, photogenic bottle—is packed with the active ingredient urea to moisturize and exfoliate keratosis pilaris–prone skin.  

With A-list wearers from the likes of Kate Bosworth to Amandla Stenberg and a collaboration with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Rose Inc. in the books, Sunnies Face may be the buzziest brand on this list. The Philippines-founded and based cosmetics company first launched in 2018 with the now-iconic Fluffmatte lipstick. Years (and many customer requests) later, the brand is ready to shop ship cult-loved products direct to US consumers. Start your engines—you can begin US checkout on May 16. 

Japanese skin-care brand Tatcha counts everyone from Selena Gomez to Meghan Markle as fans—and for good reason. With formulas and ingredients rooted in Japanese beauty practices, Tatcha’s products are both undeniably luxurious and effective—and while we’re loyal to the Glamour Beauty Award-winning Essence and the cult favorite Dewy Skin Cream, we also love two new 2022 Glamour Beauty Award winners: Tatcha Indigo Overnight Repair, for best night cream, and Tatcha The Texture Tonic, for best exfoliator. 

When K-Beauty brand Then I Met You launched its Living Cleansing Balm, if you weren’t already on the double-cleanse bandwagon, you immediately hopped aboard. And why not? It’s practically impossible to say no to one scoop of the sea buckthorn-infused balm. You can get it at Soko Glam, a trusted online retailer that carries must-have Korean beauty products. PS: Charlotte Cho, founder of Then I Met You also co-founded the aforementioned skincare mecca.

Since its 2019 launch, Tower 28 has gained a loyal following of celebs and makeup artists, thanks to its easy-to-apply vegan formulas. (One of the brand’s hero products is the Glamour Beauty Award-winning Bronzino, a bronzer for people who hate bronzer.) Everything is formulated to be sensitive skin-friendly due to the fact that founder Amy Liu has had eczema her entire adult life. The brand is certified by the National Eczema Association, and all of its products are hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic, and dermatologist-tested. 

It should come as no surprise that U Beauty became an internet success practically overnight considering it was founded by Tina Craig, one of the earliest fashion bloggers (does BagSnob sound familiar?). The brand is known for its supercharged formulas, like the Glamour editor-loved Barrier Bioactive Treatment that are meant to simplify your beauty routine and deliver real results.

Chrishell Stause Opened Up About Dating Her Nonbinary Partner G Flip

The Selling Sunset storyline never stops. After briefly dating boss Jason Oppenheim, Netflix reality star and fan favorite Chrishell Stause, 40, revealed at the season-five reunion special that she is dating G Flip, a 27-year-old singer who is nonbinary.

“I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me,” Stause told reunion host Tan France, per People. “Their name is G Flip. They’re nonbinary, so they go by they/them. And they are an extremely talented musician.”

In a video posted to her Instagram account on Tuesday, May 10, Stause explained more about her relationship with G Flip, adding some context that she says was missing from the reunion, “because at this point some of you are confused or worried or all of the things,” she said. 

“For those that are open to learning (you’re awesome) sex is anatomical and gender is how someone identifies. These two things are often confused,” Chrishell Stause wrote in the caption. “There are many more qualified people to speak on this but maybe I can be the bridge to those of you open to understanding ♥️. Feel free to tag helpful accounts and I will pin however many it lets me.”

See the video below:

“You don’t get to choose when you come into someone’s life,” Stause said in the video. 

She also spoke of G Flip’s identity: “Everyone is different, but for them, they really feel like they are a mix and they identify on both sides of male, female. So that’s one of those things I personally find such a beautiful mix. I think it’s probably why we did connect on such a deep level so quickly.”

“I know this is new for you guys,” Stause added. “And I understand that it’s confusing. But I think it’s an act of love to understand that if it’s not something that you know, of keeping that curiosity about life and evolving forward and I hope that you guys see that I’m the same person that you’ve been following this whole time. Like I said on the show, not a lot has changed. I feel like Jason and I, we genuinely want the best for each other.”

Bella Hadid Goes From Preppy to Biker-Chic in One Day

Bella Hadid’s approach to fashion is both eclectic and rebellious. Whether she’s wearing archive Yves Saint Laurent after dark or stepping out in priceless Vivienne Westwood corsetry, there’s no denying that the 25-year-old is a dedicated fashion plate. 

Bella kept her outfit cool and preppy during the day.

While on a daytime date with her boyfriend Marc Kalman, the model looked radiant in a preppy-meets-grungy uniform. Bella opted for a cropped T-shirt, a white hoodie and a knee-length cargo skirt (a Noughties staple currently enjoying a comeback).

But at this point, we all know that ordinary just doesn’t cut it for Bella. True to form, she added an edgy crucifix necklace, thin ’90s-style sunglasses and a camouflage bag for extra oomph. To finish, she slipped on socks and loafers—a styling trick that Kalman also adopted.

Amanda Seyfried Says She Was ‘Grossed Out’ By Boys Asking Her If It Was Raining After Mean Girls

Amanda Seyfried has finally confirmed it: Boys are gross.

In an interview with Marie Claire, Seyfried opened up about life in a post-Mean Girls world. As one of the stars of the most-quotable movie on the planet, it’s not super surprising that some of her most infamous lines were said back to her in real life when she was recognized in public—which, she adds, didn’t happen too often. (Cut to me pointing to my invisible mouse ear headband: “I’m a mouse, duh.”)

When she was recognized for her role in the iconic 2004 flick, however, she says it wasn’t exactly a pleasant experience. Mostly, she told the outlet, it was boys asking her if it was raining. As we all know, Seyfried’s character Karen Smith had ESPN (or something) and could predict the weather with her breasts.

“I always felt really grossed out by that,” she told Marie Claire. “I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.”  

Seyfried, now 36, also opened up about her relationship with fame, telling the magazine that—rain comments aside—she preferred being just somewhat recognizable as a young actor. “I think being really famous [young] must really fucking suck,” she said. “It must make you feel completely unsafe in the world. I see these younger actors who think they have to have security. They think they have to have an assistant. They think their whole world has changed. It can get stressful. I’ve seen it happen to my peers. So, I bought a farm. I was like, let’s go in the opposite way.”

Her peers, of course, include Mean Girls co-star Lindsay Lohan, 35, who was famously mistreated by the press, and whose career and personal life appeared to crack under the enormous pressures of fame at a young age. 

All the Details Behind the Latest Heart-Wrenching Episode of This Is Us

You and Elizabeth wrote “Katoby” this season, the episode in which saw Kate and Toby’s divorce, how they co-parent going forward, and Kate’s relationship with Philip. How did this one—”Family Meeting”—compare to writing “Katoby,” since they are both so emotional in different ways? 

Elizabeth Berger: Interesting. It’s apples and oranges. In some ways “Katoby” felt even more intense because there were less opportunities for comic relief in that episode. We tried to squeeze in one or two, but it was really tough. This one, even though so much of the subject matter is so heavy, when we get to see the Big Three together, it also simultaneously is such a joy that there’s this kind of built-in-fun to it, even if what they’re talking about is not fun. At the same time, obviously, we have our other Big Three in the cabin with the spouses and that was really fun to pop to. “Katoby” was maybe more intense for us, and this one was a little bit more the fun of getting to write a play, taking place on these two sets, while still being also incredibly intense at the same time.

Isaac: Yeah, “Katoby” was so structurally challenging because it was an episode that went forwards and backwards and spanned so much time. Figuring out how to make that as followable as possible for an audience was a real challenge. This one was hard and different. This was the last episode of the show we’re ever going to write, and we’ve been doing it for six years across a hundred plus hours. So this one was different in the sense that it was like Elizabeth and I saying goodbye to these characters, which was really weird. You’d think, Oh, that’s the last time I’m ever going to write a scene for Susan Kelechi Watson as Beth. Or, That’s the last time I’m ever going to write a scene for Mandy Moore as Rebecca. It had its own bittersweetness to it.

While I loved Philip’s reaction to Beth and Sophie’s role-playing scene, I imagine you both had a lot of fun writing that dialogue the sister-in-laws, which was pretty funny.

Elizabeth: We had a lot of fun because, obviously, they are voices that we know very well at this point. We knew that those actresses, in particular, would really deliver in crushing those imitations. So it was a lot of fun, and it was a lot of fun on set too to watch them run with it and make those impressions their own. 

I want to talk to you both about the details surrounding Rebecca’s condition at this point in her life. What has it been like to write as the Alzheimer’s is advancing, because whether it’s little things like Rebecca applying a lot of makeup or thinking Miguel is still alive, it’s all very accurate. 

Isaac: It touches so many people’s lives, Alzheimer’s and dementia, so it’s really important to us that we get it right. A lot of us have older family members who are going through versions of this and we draw from that, of course. We also have a really wonderful medical expert, a doctor who works with Alzheimer’s patients and families, and she read the script and really felt like we got it right. We also talked to her in advance of writing the episodes, so a lot of this, especially how Kate talks to Rebecca—because she’s really the one who’s stepping up of the Big Three for most of the episode—that’s taken from the advice we were given from the doctor. Kate is someone who’s studied this and learned the best way to engage with her mother. It was really vetted by the experts because we wanted to make sure that this rang true.

25 Massive Memorial Day Sales You Can Shop Early

Memorial Day is on the horizon, and we’re looking forward to a long weekend sipping cocktails by the pool, of course—but shopping all the best Memorial Day sales of 2022 might just be the most important item on our to-do list. This summer is shaping up to be an unforgettable one, and what better way to embrace the sunny mood than in a cute outfit and some picture-perfect accessories you scored a sweet deal on? Here’s everything you need to know about the best Memorial Day sales and deals.

When is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of May, and this year that falls on Monday, May 30. And because it marks the unofficial start of summer, it’s also the reason so many retailers (from Nordstrom to Best Buy to Walmart) offer some of the biggest sales of the year right about now.

When do Memorial Day sales start?

Even though Memorial Day always falls on a Monday, tons of sales land early, especially in the age of the internet; early-bird shoppers often get first dibs on the deals, especially on big-ticket items like mattresses, TVs, and washers. But those of you with the patience to hold out till the very end are rewarded with even deeper discounts, plus flash promos that only happen on the big day.

So although we’re still waiting on the biggest sales to start—we’re still on the hunt for 4K TV deals and appliance sales—now’s the time to pounce on all the fashion, beauty, and home decor you’ve been eyeing. Whether you’re priming your cart for a summer skincare haul or can hardly wait to refresh your swimsuit collection, we curated all the best Memorial Day fashion, beauty, and home deals worth shopping. Here are the best Memorial Day deals to shop early.

While the details of Nordstrom’s Half Yearly sale haven’t been announced yet, you can find deals up to 60% off both bestsellers (like leggings and V-neck tees) and new summer finds (like sunglasses and swimsuits) in its ongoing sale section. 

The ’Zon is always serving up home and tech deals, but discounts in the fashion department have been equally strong (if not more) lately. Exhibit A: those Paige jeans at the lowest price we’ve ever seen them. Exhibit B: those internet-famous, retro-inspired shades.

Putting together cute summer outfits? If last year’s sale is any indication, Shopbop will be serving up steep discounts on tons of designer finds. While you wait for details to drop, shop a few sale section favorites below.

Best Memorial Day Home & Tech Sales 2022

The details of Parachute’s Memorial Day sale are still up in the air, but we’re gearing up for a good one. While we wait, we’re snagging a ton of cozy sale items.

Will Midge be super successful in the end? And will she and Joel get back together?

Even if I knew, you think I’d spoil it for you?! While, Sherman-Palladino doesn’t like to reveal much, she did give us some insight, saying, “So while we have not written the final episode, we know what the final image is. I have always liked doing that, the whole weird, last four words of Gilmore Girls that became this weird sort of Sasquatch urban legend thing and all anybody wanted to talk about for a long time. But for somebody like me, I need to know what my endgame is…and that helps me push toward it.”

She continues: “Some people don’t like to do that. Some people just like to see where stuff takes them. I wish I could be one of those people. I think they live longer, but I kind of need to know my end game. So we know what the last image is. We don’t know what the last four words are, but we do know the image that we’re going out on. I know a lot of what’s going into the last episode, but we have a lot of people to service here. These characters deserve proper send-offs whether, it’s good, bad, and/or different.”
