Hilary Duff Looks Stunning With Waist-Length, Barbie Blonde Hair

Everybody dreams of having unlimited access to hyper-lengthy hair by way of professionally installed extensions… right? Maybe that’s just me. Regardless of your stance on long versus short hair, however, you’ve got to see Hilary Duff’s current hair situation for the upcoming How I Met Your Father series because it’s genuinely jaw-dropping. 

The actor posted a slideshow of photos teasing the release of the How I Met Your Mother spinoff, and in them, she’s sporting what is possibly the longest hair she’s ever worn. “Glam with the bestest – it has been so much fun doing press for HIMYF – my heart is full and it feels so good to be out there again in the world promoting something I am so proud of …with this giant mane,” Duff captioned the post. 

She credits Los Angeles hairstylist Nikki Lee — Duff’s long-term righthand stylist — for the “giant mane,” which flows all the way down to her waist and is voluminous enough to cover her front from shoulder to shoulder. Lee confirmed on her own Instagram account that the extensions are from Great Lengths (which I’ve actually had before. Can confirm: they are luxurious).

Quite simply put, I am drooling. There is length. There is dimension. There is full-blown magnitude to this hair. I’m a dark brunette with a chin-length bob, so it’ll pretty much never happen, but I will dream of having Duff’s hair for months (OK, probably weeks until I find another celebrity hairstyle to fixate on). 

If you want to see Duff’s glorious extensions in action, you can watch How I Met Your Father on Hulu come January 18. Seeing as I loathe almost all reboots and spinoffs, I honestly wasn’t planning on watching it — but after seeing this hair… I might be tempted after all.

Selena Gomez Revealed the Sweet Meaning Behind Her Matching Tattoo With Cara Delevingne

Getting matching tattoos is rarely a meaningless, casual endeavor, and it certainly wasn’t for Selena Gomez and Cara Delevingne. 

In late December, the Bang Bang NYC’s Instagram account debuted Gomez’s newest ink: a watercolor rose dripping down her back like wet paint. It was stunning, noteworthy work on its own, but the tat was made all the more special a few days later when it was revealed to be part of a matching set. On December 30, the same studio shared that Gomez’s Only Murders in the Building costar Delevingne received an almost identical version of the artwork on her ribcage. 

“Matching for @caradelevingne. I had so much fun making these tattoos—thanks for always trusting me Cara,” celebrity tattoo artist Kieth Scott captioned the post at the time. “Fyi I didn’t tell them til the end that these were my first watercolor tattoos ever.” 

Here is the tattoo on Gomez:

Now, in a recent interview with Live With Kelly and Ryan, Gomez is opening up about the meaning behind the matching ink. “It means a couple of different things,” the actor said, per Billboard. “Cara [is] one of my best friends that I’ve known for [a long time.] I was maybe 16 when I met her. She calls me ‘Rosebud.’ So, it’s a nickname. I’ve always wanted a rose and now I got one and I love it.”

It’s true that Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez have been close for years. The pair vacationed together in St. Tropez in 2014 and recently made headlines for a kiss cam moment at a November 2021 Knicks game in New York City.  In early December, Gomez spoke to Extra about working with Delevingne on the second season of her hit Hulu show. “We just did our first day together yesterday,” she said. “It’s so fun. We were just dying and laughing most of the time because we just know each other so well.”


Brown Boots, Brow Gel, and Shimmery Lip Gloss: What Addison Rae Is Buying Now

With over 40 million followers on Instagram and a staggering 86 million (and counting) people viewing her TikToks, calling Addison Rae an influencer feels like an understatement. Every move the 21-year-old makes, whether she’s wearing a “crazy cute” corset top or swiftly detailing the financials of a social media star, sparks a flurry of headlines…and purchases. 

The power of her name has created a multimillion-dollar business consisting of energy drinks, skin-care products, and lucrative Netflix deals. And her latest venture includes a collaboration with IPSY on Glam Bag X, a selection of eight full-size products, curated by Addison, worth up to $500 for $55. “I was really excited to have my own take on the Glam Bag X,” Rae tells me, adding that the products she chose for the collaboration were inspired by a “’90s model off-duty look.” 

But with the opportunity to talk to someone as, well, influential as Rae, we had to ask what else is inspiring her at the moment. Read on for our latest installment of Your Fave’s Faves with Addison Rae.

The ‘90s trend I’m loving

A bushy brow! I love how everyone has their brows super pushed up, and I feel like that’s become something that is engrained into everyone’s makeup routine now. That’s been something I’ve always stuck to and loved. I use my ITEM Beauty Brow Chow; it’s great for filling in my brows. I use that very sparsely, though, because I have pretty thick brows. And then I think a brow gel is essential. I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel. That one’s in my Glam Bag X.

Sephora

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

Nordstrom

I love Liv Tyler, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford as ‘90s references. I think they all have really incredible looks. Fiona Apple also has incredible ’90s looks. Her eye looks were always really cool and graphic.

The last thing I bought

I feel like I’ve been ordering so much stuff lately, but the last thing I think I ordered was some sunglasses. They’re Stüssy sunglasses. I saw them on an Instagram ad. I’m so bad at just ignoring those. I see them and I’m like, “OK, whatever.” 

My favorite way to spend a day off

Going on a walk. I love doing that. I also just got a keyboard in my apartment, so I’m trying to teach myself things. I just learned “Stay.” That was great. 

I’ve seen so much stuff about my unreleased song “I Got It Bad.” I think it’s so funny right now. I don’t know [when I’ll release it]. We’ll have to see, I guess. It just depends. 

The best thing in my closet

My style changes very frequently because I’m still kind of figuring out what I love. It’s just a combination of things. I love a ’90s…what is the word I’m looking for? Not grungy, but kind of that dark and sexy goth, Angelina Jolie vibe. I think that’s really cool. But I also do love tropical, eccentric pieces. I’m still really figuring out my style. I get so in my head sometimes about, oh, are people going to say that this doesn’t look good on me or whatever… But I’m learning to not care and wear things that I like. We’re getting there with my style.

90-Year-Olds’ Rooting for Amy Schneider on Jeopardy! Is My One Source of Joy

There was Ken. And then James. Followed by Matt. And now: Amy. 

Amy Schneider is the first woman Jeopardy! contestant to win over $1 million. Her successes are more numerous than the pearls on her signature necklace. Her winning streak, which began on November 11, is 30 games and counting as of January 11, putting her in fourth place among all Jeopardy! contestants since the show lifted the cap on consecutive wins in 2003. Schneider is the most successful openly trans competitor in the show’s history. Cinching her icon status in a pop music category last week, she got an Olivia Rodrigo question right and a Nickelback question wrong. She is simply a sensation.  

In the world of die-hard Jeopardy! fandom, that means Schneider has picked up a steadfast community of wholesome, whip-smart nerds—loyal trivia-heads united in their memory of arcane facts, and their insistence on answering in the form of a question. Among fans, Schneider is known for her loose curls, string of pearls, and sense of humility despite her historic winning streak. “You are a brilliant, lovely woman who has great cardigans,” one supporter wrote to Schneider last week, exemplifying Jeopardy! fan energy to perfection. 

Maybe it’s because my best Jeopardy! memories are watching with my grandma, who, into her 90s, would scan the board like an eagle-eyed general surveying a battle plan, but I see intense poignancy in the Jeopardy! loyalists and Schneider supporters in their 70s, 80s, and 90s. Jeopardy! has been on air since 1964—Schneider herself has said, “I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t watching it.” In 2020, the median age of a Jeopardy! viewer was just over 64 years old, Ad Age reported. It’s reasonable to assume that for many of these viewers, Schneider’s streak on Jeopardy! is the most time they’ve ever spent watching a famous trans person, or a trans person, period.

“How do you remember all that information?” a married couple wrote to Schneider on Twitter. “We are 79 & 75 and can’t remember what we ate for breakfast! Keep going dear you are amazing.” One fan wished Amy a hearty “You go girl” from their 87-year-old mom, while another commented, “My 95 y.o. dad and I talk about you by phone each day.” “My 97 year old dad & I love to see you,” chimed in another. “We watch with my 89-year-old mother,” wrote one woman. “She’s so proud.” One fan filmed her grandmother toasting to Amy: “If the boys can win millions, you can win millions!”

Schneider’s story is already the stuff of legend—an occupational hazard of winning big on a show punctuated by personal anecdotes. In eighth grade, Schneider’s classmates voted her Most Likely to Compete on Jeopardy. She has joked that her “preferred musical genre is ‘sad lesbians,’” but she listens to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” before each day of competition. When she hit the $1 million mark, she credited her mother, who used to help her study for spelling bees. Schneider has also spoken movingly about her pride in being, suddenly, an extremely visible trans person. “It’s definitely been the most rewarding part of the whole experience,” she told The Advocate. She has shared with her fans that one of her go-to karaoke songs is “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, “which resonates so strongly with how I felt as a little closeted trans kid.”

And she’s found ways to laugh in the face of trans-hating trolls who seek to diminish her successes. “I’d like to thank all the people who have taken the time, during this busy holiday season, to reach out and explain to me that, actually, I’m a man,” she tweeted. “Every single one of you is the first person ever to make that very clever point, which had never once before crossed my mind.” She ended with an emoji “prayer-hands” flourish. “Laugh all the way to the bank, Amy,” responded Christy Karras, a season-33 Jeopardy! winner. “Your fellow women of Jeopardy have your back.” Beneath Karras’s comment, two more women Jeopardy! contestants chimed in, forming a chain of support.

Jamie Lynn Spears Details 2020 Fight With Britney in New Book

Jamie Lynn Spears opened up about her supposed falling out with big sister Britney Spears in a new interview with ABC News. In the interview, Jamie Lynn discusses her new book, Things I Should Have Said, out January 18, which includes a story about a fight she allegedly had with Britney in 2020.  

Since Britney’s 13-year conservatorship ended in November 2021, the pop star has been outspoken about her anger towards her family, including her younger sister, Jamie Lynn. According to ABC News, Jamie Lynn Spears writes in her upcoming book that her relationship with Britney “came to a head” during the pandemic in 2020. In the book, she writes that “Britney came at me screaming and getting up in my face” while Jamie Lynn was holding her toddler, Ivy.

“She cursed at me and so I just walked out of the room and was like, ‘We’re just all one family under one roof, I’m not trying to argue,” Jamie Lynn told ABC News about the alleged fight described in the book. “When I tried to remove myself from the situation, that’s, uh . . . when I guess she got really angry. And my oldest daughter tried to, you know, mediate the situation and I hated that. Like, that’s not what you’re supposed to do, you’re 12.”

Jamie Lynn told ABC News that her parents reverted to “unhealthy patterns” following the alleged incident: “They told me that I shouldn’t be upset, that I can’t upset Britney. I said, ‘You just saw me and my children be upset. When will I matter?’”

Despite the tension between the sisters, who are 10 years apart, Jamie Lynn says that she still loves her sister. “That love is still there, 100 percent,” she said. “I love my sister. I’ve only ever loved and supported her and done what’s right by her and she knows that, so I don’t know why we’re in this position right now.”

Julia Fox Says Her Relationship With Kanye West Is ‘Such a Gemini/Aquarius Connection’

Kanye West may still be navigating his split from Kim Kardashian, but he’s starting 2022 caught up in a new whirlwind romance. West and actor Julia Fox have started dating. She recounted their week together in a January 6 blog for Interview magazine. 

“Everything with us has been so organic,” Fox wrote of the budding romance. “I don’t know where things are headed but if this is any indication of the future I’m loving the ride.” Here’s the story so far. 

December 31, 2021: The 31-year-old Uncut Gems actor meets the 44-year-old rapper on New Year’s Eve at a surprise Miami performance. Fox described West’s energy as “fun to be around” and wrote that he kept her and her friends “laughing, dancing, and smiling all night.”

January 2022: Having kicked things off so well on New Year’s Eve, Fox and West decide to keep things going with a second date in New York City. The two go to see Slave Play together on Broadway, and they dine at Italian American restaurant Carbone afterward.

While at Carbone, West directed a photoshoot for Fox, with people at the restaurant as an audience for the couple. For the romantic and intimate shoot, Fox wore Miaou thong pants and a Balenciaga turtleneck and coat. The photos show off the physical chemistry between the two, and judging by West’s smile in the pictures, he’s pretty happy with how things are going.

And just to cap this off as the world’s most extravagant second date: West surprised Fox with a hotel suite full of clothes.

“It was every girl’s dream come true,” Fox wrote of the surprise in Interview. “It felt like a real Cinderella moment. I don’t know how he did it, or how he got all of it there in time. But I was so surprised. Like, who does things like this on a second date? Or any date!”

Sources say that while ’Ye might still be pining for his ex, Kardashian is happy he’s moving on and glad Fox is his new girl. TMZ reports that Kardashian wants West to find a good person and is happy that Fox is a fan of her and her brand, having modeled for Skims and called herself “die-hard” for Keeping Up With the Kardashians. That admiration may make it easier for the three of them to get along. Makes sense to us!

January 13, 2022: On the latest episode of Fox’s podcast, Forbidden Fruits, which was titled “Behind the Scenes with Julia Fox,” the host decided to “address some of the controversies and set the record straight.”

“There’s no labels, none of that,” Fox said of her relationship with West, per People. “It’s just people that make each other feel better. It’s really, like, such a Gemini/Aquarius connection. It’s very inspirational. Our minds, we both work very fast; we keep up with each other, which is cool.”

She continued, “All the people that we have in common, like friends in common, have texted me like, ‘Oh my God, this makes so much sense.'”

Brazen on Netflix Is Basically If Fifty Shades of Grey Were a Murder Mystery

Brazen on Netflix has arrived in the throws of this freezing January to give you the twisty-turny murder mystery escape you need. 

The movie, starring Alyssa Milano and The Bold Type‘s Sam Page, is one part Fifty Shades of Grey, two parts Law & Order: SVU, and all parts bonkers. So, in other words, you’ll love it. 

Clocking in at just over 90 minutes, Brazen centers on Grace (Milano), a best-selling author who specializes in soapy crime novels. In the middle of her book tour, Grace gets a call from her sister, Kathleen (Emilie Ullerup), a high school teacher who’s in a major crisis. Her estranged ex-husband is seeking full custody of their young son, and with his connections and money, he’ll probably get it. Just to make ends meet, Kathleen has started web-camming as a dominatrix, a secret she hasn’t told anyone, not even Grace. But her double life is revealed when one of her subscribers/fans breaks into her house and kills her while she’s filming. Grace, who’s come to Kathleen’s house to support her through this custody drama, was out with a cute cop named Ed (Page) when this happened. 

But when Grace discovers her sister’s dead body, she puts on her crime novelist hat and gets to work solving the murder—with the help of Ed, of course. Obviously, there’s lots of making out in between talking to suspects and rummaging for clues.

Is Brazen on Netflix a good movie? Well, it depends on your definition of good. Will it win any Oscars? Probably not. But I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish. The movie has all the heightened stakes and head-scratching dialogue you’ve come to expect and appreciate from a streaming-service thriller. At one point in the movie Grace straight-up punches Kathleen’s ex-husband in the face! Shortly after, two of Kathleen’s students get in a fight at school, and one guy keeps shouting, “My Kathleen! My Kathleen!” Totally normal behavior!

A minute didn’t go by during Brazen where I wasn’t either wide-eyed or screaming. And that, in my opinion, makes it a success. It’s the perfect movie to down in your sweatpants with a glass of red wine—which I’ll be doing this weekend, gleefully. Yes, I plan on watching Brazen a second time. Is that…brazen of me? 

Brazen is now streaming on Netflix. 

Megan Fox’s Engagement Ring Design Has a Deeply Personal Meaning

In case you missed it–which you probably didn’t because it’s everywhere–Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, the world’s most extreme couple, are engaged. And Fox’s very extra engagement ring has a deeply personal meaning. 

On Wednesday, MGK shared a photo of Fox‘s engagement ring to Instagram and revealed the story behind it. “i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love,” he wrote in the caption.

“In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree,” Fox wrote in her IG caption. “We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma. Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes…and then we drank each other’s blood.”

“The first time I looked into his eyes, I was like, ‘I know you. I have known you so many times, in so many different forms, in so many different lives,’” Fox told The Washington Post about MGK, adding she “wasn’t expecting it’d be like, ‘God, you are my soul mate,’ instantly.” 

It looks like that’s exactly what happened.
