Kendall Jenner Just Said Goodbye to Her Dark Hair

By now, almost all of the Kardashians have briefly abandoned their dark hair for something a little lighter (or in Khloé’s case, ice-white), and Kendall Jenner is the latest in the family to embrace the trend. It’s not the first time, of course; she went bright blond for a bit during London Fashion Week earlier this year, but she’s traditionally been the one to keep her hair darker. Still, she decided to change things up this winter and shared a couple of posts on Instagram this week that offer a look at her soft new waves.

Jenner shared a video that shows her playing with her hair, which she captioned simply, “I’m sleepy.” The shot gave fans a glimpse at her new shade, which is a slightly russet, soft brown color. Colorist Cassondra Kaeding created the new hue (Jenner’s longtime stylist, Jen Atkin, did the waves) and posted her own Instagram footage of Kendall, writing, “@kendalljenner glammed up on a Sunday, hbu?”

In addition to going blond for a quick period, Kendall had also decided to go for a cool ombre a few weeks ago. It was a subtle change that seems to have been the bridge that led her to fully going lighter. The new color is brighter, but definitely not overboard, and it actually really works for the holidays.

Jenner isn’t the only one who’s been experimenting a lot lately: Her older sister Kim has been playing around with her regular hair colorist Chris Appleton, who took her from dark chocolate brown to a super pretty ombre with soft, rich hues. He shared a photo that shows Kim with her hair cascading down her shoulders on Instagram a few days ago, in which he wrote, “Who mastered the Cool Chocolate brown this winter?”

It’s slightly different from Kendall’s, but both sisters are giving us plenty of winter inspiration.

Jenna Dewan’s New Netflix Series Soundtrack Is So Good She Signed on Without Reading a Script

It’s been a busy year for Jenna Dewan. She celebrated her first anniversary with boyfriend Steve Kazee, announced her pregnancy, and released a personal memoir, Gracefully You. On screen, Dewan starred in romantic dramedies The Wedding Year and Berlin, I Love You, served as a mentor on NBC’s World of Dance, and guest starred on The Resident.

As if those weren’t time-consuming enough, now she’s about to star in one of her most ambitious and creative projects to date: Soundtrack, a modern day musical that combines Dewan’s love of dance, acting, and song. It premieres on Wednesday, December 18 on Netflix.

“I’ve done dance numbers on stage, in movies, and on different shows,” Dewan tells Glamour, “but I’ve never done it within an acting scene, where the song was going to portray the emotions of the character in the moment.” So when creator Josh Safran told her about his idea—a show that includes musical numbers, dramatic moments, and intersecting love stories set in Los Angeles—she knew she wanted to be a part of it. “I didn’t even need to see a script.”

It was welcome news to Safran, who wrote the role with Dewan in mind. After a general meeting with her, Safran say, he knew she was a fit. “I fell in love with her and was like, ‘Done. That’s it,'” he explains. For Dewan, the feeling was mutual: “I signed on strictly because I love Josh and the idea.”

Here, Dewan talks about Soundtrack, making out with herself on the show (yes, you read that right), and more.

Jennifer Aniston Threw a Christmas Party This Weekend—and Brad Pitt Attended

Jennifer Aniston threw a Christmas tree trimming party this past Saturday, December 14, and a very special guest attended: her ex-husband, Brad Pitt.

Now, before you jump to conclusions, it’s important to know a few things. 1) Pitt was just one of many A-listers who attended Aniston’s annual bash. Other celebs who went include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, and Jimmy Kimmel, according to People magazine. And 2) Aniston and Pitt have maintained a “friendly” relationship for a while now. Need we remind you that he attended her 50th birthday party back in February 2019?

“They have been in touch a few times since her birthday and are keeping it friendly,” a source tells People. Earlier they added, “The annual tree trimming party is always Jen’s favorite to host. She loves Christmas. As usual, a large group of friends attended.”

So, no, this doesn’t mean Aniston and Pitt are getting back together. Their relationship ended over a decade ago, after all. They’ve moved on and clearly have a very nice rapport with one another.

On Pitt going to Aniston’s birthday party in February, an insider told People, “He would not have been asked to come if that weren’t the case. It was a big night for Jen. The important people in her life gathered to celebrate with her. Brad fits into that group, and it was natural that he would want to come.” What the two of them have, per this source, is a “very civil relationship.”

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were married between 2000 and 2005. Shortly after their split, Pitt got together with Angelina Jolie, and a fictional, tabloid-fueled love triangle formed between the three of them. When Pitt and Jolie split in 2016, all eyes, unsurprisingly, were on Aniston. But it’s time this narrative that she’s still pining over Pitt end. She has more important things going on in her life. And so do we.

Elizabeth Warren Adds Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris’s Paid Leave and Reproductive Health Care Policies to Her Platform

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is blunt—the women have been pushed out.

In late August, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) exited the 2020 presidential race. Earlier this month, Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced she would end her campaign too. Meanwhile, over a dozen candidates—most of whom are less well known than those two women—remain in the contest, with the field somewhat narrower and much, much more male than it was even 12 weeks ago. As some on social media have noted, there are now more billionaires up for the Democratic nomination than there are black women. And of the six candidates who qualified for this week’s Democratic debate, zero are people of color.

The problem is bigger than just who gets to stand behind a podium. With candidates like Gillibrand and Harris out of contention, their ideas risk elimination too. And Warren—who has put a feminist spin on retirement benefits and student debt—refuses to let that happen.

“We’ve seen a record number of women in this race,” Warren tells Glamour. “That means, together, we’ve been able to shape the national conversation, to highlight issues impacting people in America.” But, she adds, as men who can afford to pour tens of millions of dollars into their own runs declare their candidacies, that discussion suffers.

After Warren announced her bid, she unveiled her plan to make affordable childcare available to families nationwide. Gillibrand pioneered paid leave legislation. Harris prioritized reproductive healthcare. “These are powerful issues, not just for women, but for families,” Warren says. And of course, the fact that Gillibrand and Harris aren’t on the trail doesn’t mean we’ve solved them. So, Warren reached out to her former rivals and asked their permission—both to add their policies to her platform and to attribute those plans to the women responsible for them.
