Sports Illustrated’s Newest Swimsuit Model Is Also a Chronic Pain Advocate

Once she got the call that she was a finalist, Robinson flew to Punta Cana for a photoshoot as part of Sports Illustrated‘s 2022 Swimsuit issue—something she wrote was a major “pinch me moment,” on Instagram.

“Winning Swim Search would show the world representation for the chronically ill community in an unprecedented way,” she told the brand. “Mental health and body image have been issues at the forefront over the past few years, but what we don’t always pay attention to is other invisible illnesses.”

Robinson was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome at the age of 11, a condition that makes her highly prone to injury and leaves her skin, joints, and tissues in pain. Her and her family first found out about the diagnosis when she broke her elbow after doing a cartwheel. Her elbow, along with fracturing her ankle and tearing a few ligaments a few months later, took much longer to heal—something that alerted her doctors that she may have Ehlers-Danlos.

Now that her debut on Sports Illustrated is out, Robinson has one message: “You can feel like shit and still look super sexy.”

“My debut is symbolic of my journey as an advocate for so many things including mental health, body image, invisible illness all while being a student and entrepreneur,” she wrote on Instagram, moments after her debut went live. “I am so elated to be alongside all of the other fabulous swim search finalists, congrats to us.”

Doja Cat’s Gold Nail Jewelry Is Even Better Than Nail Polish

At the 2022 Billboard Music Awards on May 15, Doja Cat took home four trophies for Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Female Artist, Top Viral Song, and Top R&B. If that wasn’t enough, the “Kiss Me More” singer made our jaws drop at the stunning Schiaparelli black gown and gold accessories she wore for the awards show. By now we expect the pop star to capture our attention with every new look, but we didn’t expect her to show up to the event with short nails or intricate gold rings that look like they’re worth more than my student loans.

The “Say So” singer didn’t hesitate with taking risks for this look, something we love from her. Makeup artist Ernesto Casillas gave her a neutral smokey eye with a hint of bright yellow on the inner crease and waterline that complemented the daring gown well. As for her hair, hairstylist Jared Henderson (known as JStay Ready to many) slicked her dark hair into a high ponytail with a flipped end that we have a good feeling was fun to whip around.

Typically Doja Cat wears lengthy nails, but for this look, she kept them short. Nail artist Saccia painted her rounded nails with the pale pink OPI Nail Polish in Bare My Soul for a minimalist vibe. But this manicure is anything but simple, because this opulent jewelry is basically nail art. 

Her middle finger had the largest ring, which covered her whole finger and nail. The ring is mostly gold, except for the two large baby blue gems on the finger. The ring extends into a golden nail that’s much longer than Doja Cat’s own. The other two rings were simpler, which is saying something. Two golden nail rings wrapped around her thumb and index finger. 

Jemima Kirke Talks Daytime Sex, Polyamory, and Putting Out on the First Date

What is a dating “rule” that you think is BS?

The idea that you can “put out” or sleep with someone too soon is a myth. I think that can happen whenever. I don’t think that’s ever going to make or break the relationship, if you put out on the first date. I’ve always put out on the first date! I mean, if you’re gonna get nothing out of it, you might as well get something out of it.

I definitely don’t think you need to go everywhere together. One of my pet peeves is when people suddenly become a unit—you invite one person and they assume that you invited both because they’re married or they’re together. I’ve had that experience of people just showing up with the spouse that I didn’t invite. That annoys me. I also think that taking space, even weeks, months can be great. In my experience of dating a musician, having that space really kept the romance alive.

What’s the weirdest thing you do when you’re by yourself?

I have a lot of little tchotchkes and I organize them into arrangements that are appealing to me, like a little still-life. Another thing I’m a fan of lately is just sitting there. Like just sitting. Not moving. Just giving my whole being a rest. Some people would call that meditation. I’m not doing anything that deliberate. I’m just sitting there. If someone walked in they would think I was catatonic.

What’s your go-to hangover cure?

Lots of carbohydrates, sugar—things that will make you feel worse, but they feel good in the moment. And no appointments that day would be ideal.

What’s your favorite on-screen sex scene?

There are a few. God, let me think. I would usually have such a fucking great answer for that. There’s one in Panic in Needle Park with Kitty Winn and Al Pacino and the whole thing takes place under the blankets and we see it from outside. It’s very playful. Another one is in a movie called Boxcar Bertha with Barbara Hershey and David Carradine. They have sex in a boxcar, in, you know, a freight train.

What is the most surprising place you have ever hooked up with someone?

I’m not very adventurous with locations. I just find a bed to be the best place to do anything. It’s comfortable, you have lots of space. When I say a bed I mean a king-size strictly, or a California King. A locked door. Good daylight. I love the daylight for that kind of thing, for sex. If the connection is there I don’t really need any bells and whistles.

Are you an astrology person?

When it’s convenient.

The Gilded Age Started Filming Season Two, and the First Photo Is Here

Back to the 19th century we go! HBO has renewed prestige period drama The Gilded Age, from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, for a second season. 

On February 14, 2022, HBO announced the renewal, which is currently in the midst of airing its nine-episode first season. The series stars veteran actors Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, and Carrie Coon, as well as breakout newcomers Louisa Jacobson and Denée Benton.  

“Julian Fellowes and the entire Gilded Age family have captivated us with their tale of late 19th century New York City extravagance,” executive vice president of HBO programming Francesca Orsi said in a statement. “Along with our partners at Universal Television, we couldn’t be prouder to embark on a season-two journey with this extraordinarily talented team.” 

On May 16, HBO announced the series was back in production for the second season with this behind-the-scenes photo of Carrie Coon and Morgan Spector (who star as Bertha Russell and George Russell) in all their regalia.

What is The Gilded Age about?

Per HBO, “The American Gilded Age was a period of immense economic change, of great conflict between the old ways and brand new systems, and of huge fortunes made and lost. Against the backdrop of this transformation, HBO’s The Gilded Age begins in 1882 with young Marian Brook (Louisa Jacobson) moving from rural Pennsylvania to New York City after the death of her father to live with her thoroughly old money aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Christine Baranski) and Ada Brook (Cynthia Nixon). Accompanied by Peggy Scott (Denée Benton), an aspiring writer seeking a fresh start, Marian inadvertently becomes enmeshed in a social war between one of her aunts, a scion of the old money set, and her stupendously rich neighbors, a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife, George (Morgan Spector) and Bertha Russell (Carrie Coon). Exposed to a world on the brink of the modern age, will Marian follow the established rules of society, or forge her own path?”

Julia Fox Continues To Julia Fox By Going Grocery Shopping in Her Underwear

We can always count on Julia Fox to find a way to wear an outlandish outfit, no matter the venue or seemingly mundane the task at hand. Judging by her latest fashion statement, she isn’t stopping anytime soon. 

The Uncut Gems actor wore a Calvin Klein underwear set for her latest grocery store run, with an oversized light wash denim jacket on top. Keeping on theme with her sexy Canadian Tuxedo-adjacent look, the 32-year-old paired her risqué look with knee-high denim boots and a jean bag. (No, seriously. Her purse is a pair of pants.) 

It’s not surprising that Fox is a denim girl—she did attend her first fashion week with Kanye West in a head-to-toe jean look—but what’s more surprising is that she bought Aquafina water. As a chronic Smart Water drinker, I am appalled; as a fashion lover, I am obsessed.

Kylie Jenner Wore a Form-Fitting Graphic Dress to Pose With Travis Scott and Stormi

While there is still no update on the name of the baby formerly known as Wolf, here is some Kylie Jenner news: The reality star attended the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15 and brought the whole family, sans the baby with no name.

For the event Kylie Jenner wore a blue form-fitting dress with graphic details. The outfit is floor-length with long sleeves and a mock neck with abstract graphic details that accentuate her body—there’s even an illusion of legs on the front of the skirt. 

Kylie wore her hair in an updo with a side part and left one long face-framing piece hanging. She wore dramatic gold cuffs on both wrists and an ear cuff. As for her makeup, it is pretty subtle for her standards, with a soft neutral eyeshadow look, rosy cheeks, and a glossy-lined lip.  

See the look below:

Kylie didn’t attend the event solo, though. She brought Travis Scott and their four-year-old daughter Stormi, who wore a white one-sleeve mini dress with sneakers.
