Surprise! Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas Got Married in Las Vegas

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas pulled off a Game of Thrones-worthy twist last night: They got married in Las Vegas after the Billboard Music Awards.

That’s right, the couple hit up the Billboard Music Awards and then headed to the Chapel L’Amour inside A Little White Wedding Chapel. People reports that Jonas and Turner applied for a marriage license earlier in the day, and another source tells the magazine that the wedding was indeed legit. (Fun fact: Celebrities like Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, Britney Spears, Michael Jordan, and Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow all got married at the same venue.)

The ceremony was captured on Diplo’s Instagram Stories and Live Feed, where you can see Jonas, along with this brothers Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas, waiting for Turner to walk down the aisle. The actress wore a white silk top and pants, along with a white veil, as Dan + Shay played their song, “Speechless.”

The couple held hands during the ceremony, while the Elvis impersonator/officiant asked them to recite their vows. “I promise you, I will never leave you. I will love and trust you, all the days of my life,” they said. “In sickness and in health… forever and ever.” As for the rings, it looks like Turner and Jonas exchanged candy Ring Pops before “Elvis” said, “Fine folks, family… in the power vested in me, it is my pleasure to pronounce you two husband and wife. You may kiss that bride!” The couple then danced around with guests to “Viva Las Vegas.”

From Diplo’s live video, it looks like Turner’s fellow “J Sisters,” and now official sisters-in-law—Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas—were seated in the front row. And you can also catch a glimpse of Khalid in the stream.

Turner and Jonas started dating in 2016 and got engaged the following year. The couple has previously said they planned to get married this summer, and we wouldn’t be surprised if that (likely larger) celebration still happens. “We’re going to have a summer wedding, which I’m looking forward to,” Joe said on The Late Late Show with James Corden recently. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.” They wouldn’t be the first in the family to have more than one ceremony.

Congrats, you two!

Billboard Music Awards 2019: Watch Priyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner, and Danielle Jonas Dance to the Jonas Brothers

Hello! My name is Anna Moeslein, and I’m just fine admitting that I’m fully obsessed with the Jonas Sisters.

For the uninitiated, that’s the squad name for Priyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner, and Danielle Jonas, the gorgeous and adorable significant others of Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas, respectively. These women all have interesting backstories of their own—I mean, Sophie Turner is literally the Sansa Stark—but something truly magical happens when they’re together. It’s like all their charm and good looks are turned up to 100. Oh, and the guys are there too, I guess.

Anyway, the J Sisters were at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards tonight supporting their partners, who were performing their new single “Sucker”, and, as usual, were just a delight. Ahead of the show, the couples walked the red carpet, posed for pictures, and generally looked as stunning and in love as possible. See?

However, the real highlight was the Jonas Brothers’ performance—though, not necessarily what was happening on stage.

While Joe, Kevin, and Nick were certainly entertaining—”Sucker” is a certified jam—I have to say they were entirely upstaged by the adorable dancing of their partners. I mean, look at this:

Nick even snuck in a kiss with Priyanka in the middle of the performance.

The bros are just as enamored with the Jonas sisters’ bond as I am.

“It’s a great feeling,” Nick told Entertainment Tonight about Priyanka’s friendship with his brothers and their partners. “I mean, it’s kind of a dream where, as close as we are as brothers, that our wives and fiancée are so connected as well. These incredible women have handled [the band reunion] so well and have been the best support system for each of us, individually and as a group. To get to share that with them is a really amazing thing.”

Watch Taylor Swift’s Fun-Filled Billboard Music Awards 2019 Performance

The aesthetic of Taylor Swift’s new era is crystal clear: She’s all about pastel colors, sparkles, and having F-U-N.

Those elements were certainly front and center in her energetic performance of “ME!”, which kicked off the Billboard Music Awards 2019 on May 1.

Earlier in the night, Swift walked the red carpet in a ruffled Raisa Vanesa number (again, very Taylor Swift New Era—down to the butterfly ring).

For the performance of “ME!”, though, she changed into a sequin one-shoulder dress and powder blue boots. But that wasn’t the only lewk on stage: Swift brought along a full marching band dressed in pink, dancers in colorful suits and briefcases (like in the song’s music video), and Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie in a suit so gorgeous I could see Villanelle wearing it on Killing Eve. See for yourself, below:

The whole thing felt very similar in tone to the music video, with one exception: Swift notably changed “spelling is fun!” to “Vegas is fun!” (The Billboard Music Awards took place in Las Vegas.) Like I said, New Taylor is all about having fun. Here’s a clip:

“It’s been so much fun and putting out this song and video has been really, really exciting and just a really joyful experience,” Swift recently told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Apple Music about this chapter. “And it’s been like, you know the video’s like a magical-like, whimsical, mystical world. So it’s kind of been amazing to see the fans pick out little Easter eggs. And I just feel really grateful.”

She continued, “This new music is much more playful and actually inward facing. Like when you get into this album, it’s much more about me as a person, no pun intended with the song title.”

Beyoncé Fans Say Taylor Swift’s Billboard Music Awards Performance Copied Homecoming

That said, not everyone was feeling Swift’s performance—or, more specifically, her use of that marching band. Beyoncé fans took to Twitter to complain that Swift had copied Bey’s 2018 Coachella set which was featured in the behind-the-scenes documentary Homecoming.

Others, however, felt the performances are two different things and shouldn’t be compared.

“It’s been so much fun and putting out this song and video has been really, really exciting and just a really joyful experience,” Swift recently told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Apple Music about this chapter of her career. “And it’s been like, you know the video’s like a magical-like, whimsical, mystical world. So it’s kind of been amazing to see the fans pick out little Easter eggs. And I just feel really grateful.”

These New Photos of Princess Charlotte Were Taken by Kate Middleton, and They’re Adorable

Princess Charlotte turns 4 years old on May 2, and to celebrate Kensington Palace shared three new photos of her taken by her mother, Kate Middleton

They’re adorable, obviously—and Princess Charlotte is turning lewks in them. In one photo, she’s wearing a floral blue dress with navy shoes and in two of them she has on a grey cardigan and plaid skirt. This is 100 percent what Blair Waldorf wore as a child, and I’m living for Middleton’s fashion inspiration.

“Happy Birthday Princess Charlotte,” Kensington Palace posted to Instagram on Wednesday night, May 1. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fourth birthday. The photographs were taken in April by The Duchess at Kensington Palace and at their home in Norfolk.”

Check out the cute pics for yourself, below.

Her hair bow game is seriously on point.

As are her flower-catching skills.

We stan the new queen of sitting on fences in open fields.

Princess Charlotte‘s photos come just a few days after Kensington Palace shared new photos of her younger brother, Prince Louis, in honor of his first 1st birthday. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share these new photographs of Prince Louis ahead of his first birthday tomorrow,” a statement from KP’s Instagram reads. “The photographs were taken earlier this month by The Duchess at their home in Norfolk.‬”

He, too, was dressed to the nines. I’m living for this color scheme especially:

It’s only a matter of time before Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Prince George welcome their new cousin, Baby Sussex. Meghan Markle is reportedly due in early May, and her mother, Doria Ragland, has already flown in for the birth. Unfortunately, we may not see cute photos like this of Baby Sussex for a while: Markle and Prince Harry are opting to celebrate their newborn privately before sharing images with the world.

Selena Gomez Designed a Swimsuit With Her Surgery Scar in Mind

After a brief hiatus, Selena Gomez is slowly coming back into the public eye. And one of her first big projects is close to her heart, in more ways than one.

Gomez revealed she designed a swimsuit for her friend and former assistant’s new swim line, Krahs Swim. Theresa Mingus is readying herself for the launch of her brand, and enlisted Gomez to create a swimsuit. And the result was a three-piece capsule collection that she made specifically to cover her surgery scar from her 2017 kidney transplant.

In a video promoting the brand, Gomez interviews Mingus about the launch of Krahs Swim. Mingus says the line is inspired by her love of sharks and includes a lot of motifs to that effect, like trims shaped like shark bites. Gomez then reveals she was able to design her own suits, for a limited-edition capsule called “Selena x Krahs Swim”. The styles include a one piece, a deep-cut bikini top, and a high-waist bottom with a belt, which she explains she prefers to wear after her surgery.

“I did have a really good time designing,” Gomez said. “It was fun. The design I did, one of them, it was the high-waisted one with the belt. I’ve had a kidney transplant and I like bathing suits that kind of cover where that’s been and make me feel comfortable.”

You can watch the full interview below.

Krahs Swim is officially open for business on May 2. Ahead of the launch, Gomez paid tribute to Mingus on Instagram, sharing how excited she was for people to get to know her friend as a businesswoman.

“She has shown me how to be a strong and fearless woman. She is beautiful, kind and smart. I saw how capable she was of achieving her dreams. I wanted nothing more than to see her pursue them and soar,” she wrote in the caption.

Over the past few weeks, Gomez has made a few public appearances. She walked her first red carpet of 2019 in a Dior dress, and attended the Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Empowerment in Entertainment event.

I Wore Kylie Jenner’s Wig for a Week, and It Was Honestly Transformative

I’ve always been mystified by the appeal of Kylie Jenner. For better or worse, with a single tweet she has the power to take down billion-dollar companies, sell out clothing lines, and spark global conversations about how to cook ramen. But inarguably, the biggest influence she’s had is on the ways we talk about and perceive beauty. And beside maybe her lips, none have spurred more cultural conversations than her hair.

Whether it’s with her wig, color, or cut transformations, her hair changes surely haven’t come without controversy. But what’s always been personally captivating to me is her motivations behind her hair evolution. So for Glamour‘s inaugural video series “Celebrity Deep Dive,” I did just that—went deep—into her history to learn more about her impact.

Truth be told, I went into this thinking it would be pretty surface level. I’d get into some reporting, gather the facts, create a thorough timeline, speak with an expert, Antoinette Hill, to learn about the history and culture of wigs, and try out a Kylie-inspired wig for myself (she gets hers, apparently, from Wildform, a business that uses ethically sourced hair). But throughout this journey I realized some things—after all, Kylie is the queen of “like, realizing things,” so it’s no surprise I would too, right?

I grew up going to a very white, southern school where no one looked like me or had my curly Middle Eastern hair. I began straightening it at a young age to fit in better, and I’ve never colored it in my life. Everything I’d done up until this point with my hair was to blend in, so seeing myself in a bright blue wig was honestly shocking. At first I felt like I had to keep explaining myself to people who looked at me: “It’s for a work project.” “I’m testing something out for a video.”

But somewhere along the week I realized, why did I have to justify how I looked? I didn’t need to explain why my hair was blue. It was blue because I wanted it to be blue. Which led to an epiphany: if I can rock fantasy blue, mermaid-esque hair out in public, then I definitely can and should wear my natural curls. Kylie once said in a blog post on her site that changing up her hair helps give her confidence. I never thought I’d actually gain the same sense of confidence (ky-fidence?) as her, but that’s exactly what happened.

Check out what got me here in the video above.

Used Wedding Dresses: The Big Business of Secondhand Wedding Dresses

With a few weeks to go before her wedding last fall, Joan Zhang, a 24-year-old business analyst in New York City, wasn’t completely satisfied with the dress she had bought—even though she’d spent over a thousand dollars on it. She worried it would be too bulky for her reception.”Even after alterations, there would be no way for me to dance without falling flat on my face the entire time,” she says.

Zhang went back to traditional bridal boutiques looking for a gown to wear specifically to her reception, but left empty-handed. Nothing matched her desired look for a decent price. Her search eventually led her to Poshmark, where she had previously purchased for work bags and dresses, gently-used. There, she found a pre-owned Watters Nova wedding dress for $70. (Original retail price: $240.) A few clicks, some alterations later—it was ready for the party.

Zhang is one of many brides who have turned to the secondhand market to find something to wear for their wedding day—whether it’s for the ceremony, the reception, or both. Resale is a small slice of the $80 million global bridal industry—The Knot‘s Real Weddings study, which surveyed 14,000 couples married last year, says that only 4 percent of brides wear a used gown—but it’s one that’s growing steadily. Google searches for “used wedding dresses for sale” have increased by 100 percent over the past five years and those for “sell wedding dress near me” are up 1,350 percent. In its annual weddings report, Lyst revealed that views of pre-owned wedding dresses went up by 93 percent in 2018 on its site.

Nowadays, shoppers can find used wedding dresses at online-only bridal consignment stores like PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com and StillWhite.com or larger marketplaces like TheRealReal, Tradesy, Poshmark, and eBay. The selection on these sites vary—you can find more affordable secondhand styles from David’s Bridal and BHLDN to previously-used designer options by Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier.

It’s a part of the bridal fashion industry that’s still growing, but it shows a lot of promise. StillWhite, one of the premiere retailers for wedding dress resale, says it has generated over $27 million in dress sales since it launched in 2010.

The “supply” part of this equation is obvious: If a bride isn’t handing it down or finding a way to repurpose it for another special occasion, it’s highly likely that her wedding dress will be confined to the back of her closet.

It gets trickier when you think about the “demand”. The process of buying a wedding dress, as popular lore has it, is as much of a rite of passage as it is a task on a to-do list. Brides have no shortage of options to consider before turning to resale: There are nationwide chains, boutique salons, and vintage stores, as well as a growing number of direct-to-consumer labels to suss through. Still, the stitch-perfect gown can get expensive. (According to the Knot’s Real Weddings report found, the average bride in the U.S. spends approximately $1,631 on her dress.) Buying something secondhand presents a much more affordable alternative, since most styles are sold between 50 and 90 percent off the original price.

Myah Genung, a 30-year-old in Los Angeles, chose a used wedding gown for that reason in 2016. “I knew I wouldn’t be able to afford a full-price wedding dress, as my husband and I were paying for our entire wedding on our own and we didn’t want to take on any debt in the process. I wanted a dress that I absolutely loved but also wanted to put more money toward things that would impact our guests’ experience like music, decor and food,” she says. A friend’s recommendation led her to PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, where she found the “exact” dress she had originally eyed in stores—a gown by Oleg Cassini.

“Norms are definitely changing, and weddings are being documented across social channels more than ever before,” says Sasha Skoda, head of Women’s at TheRealReal. “With this rise, there seems to be less of an attachment to physical objects to remind people of these memories. Why not earn money back on your initial investment to put towards a future vacation or your next handbag purchase?”

Prince Harry Just Low-Key Gave a Big Hint About When Meghan Markle Is Giving Birth

Meghan Markle baby watch has officially taken over my life. It seems like every hour some new tidbit of information comes out that hints at when the Duchess of Sussex is—or isn’t—giving birth. When her mother, Doria Ragland, flew into London on April 21, everyone thought that meant Baby Sussex was en route. But this conflicted with reports Markle’s due date is in late April-slash-early May. The Internet finally decided on an early May birth when Baby Sussex hadn’t arrived and news broke Prince Charles is traveling to Germany on May 7. He and Markle are apparently close, so there’s no way he’d miss his grandchild’s birth. Right?

Well, now we have even more evidence Meghan Markle is giving birth in early May. It was just announced on Wednesday, May 1 that Prince Harry will be traveling to the Netherlands on May 8 and 9, which means it’s likely Baby Sussex will arrive some time before then.

This news comes courtesy of royals expert Omid Scobie, who tweeted, “JUST IN: Prince Harry will visit The Netherlands on May 8 and 9 (unless Baby Sussex arrives that late!). While there he will undertake an engagement in Amsterdam (details TBA) and then travel to The Hague to launch the one year countdown to @WeAreInvictus Games The Hague 2020.”

He continued, “It’s worth noting that this @InvictusGamesNL trip has been in the works since last year. And if Harry has to go away for one night just after the birth, Meghan has mom Doria by her side (and other visitors soon-to-be en route!).”

Of course, there’s a theory floating around that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already welcomed their first child. The Sussexes are keeping this birth relatively private, after all: On April 11, Buckingham Palace announced Markle and Prince Harry will be privately celebrating the newest addition to their family before sharing her or him with the world.
