The One Where Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon Take a ‘Friends’ Quiz

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have been making the rounds promoting their latest project, The Morning Show on Apple TV Plus. This has likely been exhausting for them, but delightful for all of us. Honestly, we need these two to work together forever.

In a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, he got the duo—along with Sir Ian McKellan and Dame Julie Andrews—to take part in a little Friends trivia. With McKellan asking the questions, Witherspoon predicted that Aniston would ace the quiz. “Oh, she’s gonna win,” she said, to which Aniston replied, “Oh, I don’t know that.”

With instructions to raise their hand if they knew the correct answered, Aniston got the first question, about what Rachel Green was wearing in her first scene. It was, of course, a wedding dress. Next up, Witherspoon answered with the her iconic line from the episode where she plays Aniston’s younger sister, Jill: “Can’t have? The only thing I can’t have is dairy!” (The two actresses even recreated the scene recently.)

Remember when Rachel ruined the British trifle by putting beef in it? So does Aniston. And she even sang a few bars of “Baby Got Back” after the audience correctly remembered it as the song that Rachel and Ross used to get baby Emma to fall asleep. Not to be outdone, Witherspoon chimed in with the first line of the famed Friends theme song by The Rembrandts. But it was Andrews who got the final word by correctly answering the final question of the night.

“When Ross dated Rachel, why did he feel it was fine to sleep with other women?” McKellen asked.

“I know it! It’s because he said, ‘We were on a break,’” she replied. Ding, ding, ding! Sadly, there was not a follow-up where Andrews weighed in on whether Ross was right in that belief.

Honestly, everyone was probably just glad they didn’t have to identify Chandler Bing’s job.

Jennifer Aniston Is Sick People Saying ‘You Look Great for Your Age’

Did you have to re-learn how to do your hair?

I did. I had to learn how to get a blow-dryer and do all that. My mom always used to sweetly blow dry my hair.

You recently said in an interview that you don’t want gray hair. Do you think there’s still a taboo around women in Hollywood going gray?

No, I think it’s personal choice. I don’t think there’s any taboo. I mean, I think if we create one [then there will be], because that’s what people like to do—create a narrative and a headline—but I think if people want to go gray, look, go gray. It’s just I don’t want to.

You’re traveling constantly. What city or country gives you the greatest beauty inspiration?

Paris. It’s absolutely stunning. I love everyone’s carefree, chic style. The women there usually wear their hair messy in a low bun, or they’ll be in a beautiful coat. And the architecture! The whole city is like a fairytale.

You’re stranded on a desert island. What are the three products you bring with you?

Aveeno sunscreen, a leave-in conditioner, and lip balm. I love Dr. Hauschka’s. And for conditioner, it’d want anything that’s nourishing. Shu Uemura has a good mask.

If there were one thing about beauty perceptions you could change, what would it be?

That beauty has a time clock. Beauty at any age is beautiful. I think we’re taking better care of ourselves these days. We’re learning more about our internal health, and that reflects itself on our outer health and beauty. I think the cliches of “oh my God, you look great for your age,” is kind of an old paradigm that doesn’t exist anymore.

You have $20 and free roam of a drugstore. What do you buy?

This is going back to my childhood, but I’d probably go to the magazine section, then over to the makeup and look through Revlon. I’d probably find some great blush. Then I’d go look at the nail polishes.

Is there a nail color you’re loving right now?

I go between pale natural pink to a deep Bordeaux in the winter.

Who are the women inspiring you the most right now?

That young woman Greta [Thunberg]. Just the strength and knowledge of that little person, and her fearlessness and fierceness to go and confront people that need to be confronted. She’s incredible. As for who else is inspiring me right now? Hmm. Women are inspiring me right now. F*ck, they all do.

Lady Gaga Is Starring in a Movie About the Gucci Family Murder: Here’s What We Know

Ever since Lady Gaga floored critics and audiences alike with her performance in A Star Is Born last year, the world’s been waiting to see what movie she’ll do next. And now we know: Deadline reports the pop icon is slated to star in a film about the Gucci family, specifically the murder of the founder’s grandson.

Gaga will play Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted in 1998 for arranging the murder of her husband, Maurizio Gucci. She was released from prison in 2016 after serving 18 years.

Ridley Scott, who’s directed several critically-acclaimed movies, like The Martian and Gladiator, will helm this project. If his previous work is any indication, we’re in for another awards-season blockbuster. (Scott himself has amassed four Oscar nominations, while Lady Gaga scored a nomination for Best Actress and a Best Original Song win for “Shallow,” the central tune in A Star Is Born.)

Not much is known about the Gucci project at this time, but here are a few details.

The plot. From a script by Roberto Bentivegna based on Sara Gay Forden’s book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, the movie will center on the rise of the Gucci empire and its foray into the corporate world under CEO Domenico De Sole and creative director Tom Ford. Interspersed with this is the story of Reggiani, who had two daughters with Maurizio Gucci (he left her in 1985 for a younger woman). According to Deadline, Reggiani had a brain tumor removed, which her children blame for her actions involving Maurizio’s murder. But the tabloids weren’t as kind to the matriarch, dubbing her a scorned “Black Widow.”

The cast. Lady Gaga is the only actor attached to the project right now. That will surely change soon.

The director. Ridley Scott.

The release date. Unknown at this time.

We’ll update this post as more details come in.

Somehow, there are still people out there who are on the fence about wearing white jeans after Labor Day. We’re here to dispel this outdated fashion “rule” once and for all with a handful of outfits that prove wearing white denim with cold-weather staples—oversized sweaters, slouchy boots, cozy fleece, and statement winter coats—isn’t only easy but incredibly cool.

Christian Vierig

Elevate white jeans and a white top with slouchy boots and a statement coat.

Claudio Lavenia

Pair a zip-up fleece with your white jeans this fall for a casual, very right now look.

Daniel Zuchnik

Layer a button-down shirt over a T-shirt, and add a cropped pair of white jeans this fall.

Christian Vierig

White jeans can make an oversized sweater and comfy sneakers look a little less casual. The Louis Vuitton bag doesn’t hurt, either.

Kirstin Sinclair

A belt and heels can give a trouser feel to a pair of wide-cut white jeans.

Melodie Jeng

The details of this outfit make it pop: white socks peeking out of boots, a tucked in T-shirt, a slouchy beanie and, of course a great winter coat.

Jim Spellman

On days when the temperature isn’t too chilly, try adding a silky kimono to a basic white jeans-and-tee combo. Swap the sandals for boots, if you need to.

Christian Vierig

Another all white look that feels seasonal—a comfortable sweater and felt hat make it work.

Try wearing a cropped cardigan buttoned-up with your white jeans in place of a jacket.

Dickinson Review: Emily Dickinson Gets an Update for the Instagram Age in This Apple TV+ Series

In the past, pop-culture has portrayed Emily Dickinson as something of a lonely spinster—a weird recluse who spent her days gardening and writing poems that wouldn’t be published until after her death in 1886. It’s true that Dickinson never married and preferred isolation in her later years, sure, but there’s so much more to her story. And Dickinson, now available for streaming on Apple TV+, is here to tell it.

“Emily Dickinson’s life was defined by these great ironies,” explains series creator Alena Smith. “She wrote nearly 2,000 poems, one of the greatest bodies of work ever written in the English language, and almost none of it was ever published or recognized while she lived. How she found the will to keep going as an artist and where that drive came from was so fascinating to me.”

Smith’s vision: Use the 1850s—a crucial period in Dickinson’s life—as a lens for today. The result? A fresh coming-of-age tale starring Hailee Steinfeld as the titular poet. While the setting is squarely in the 19th-century, Dickinson draws parallels to the present through modern music and winks at current events. In episode one, for example, Dickinson imagines meeting Death (played by Wiz Khalifa, naturally) while “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish blares in the background. In another, a period-appropriate dance ends with everyone twerking.

Apple TV+

Using these 2019 updates, Smith explains, gives viewers a direct look into Dickinson’s inner life—this is a woman who’s at war with her rigid Victorian society. “If Emily Dickinson was an artist who was quite understood in her own time, maybe we can understand her better in ours,” Smith says. “Just as Emily’s poems were breaking the rules and ahead of her time, this show is just trying to catch up with her in a way.” So Dickinson is not a literal transcription of Dickinson’s life—think of it more as a translation. Everything is rooted in fact, just with a 21st-century twist.

Steinfeld found another parallel between Dickinson and today’s millennial women. “In the show Emily goes back and forth about, ‘Do I even want to have an audience?’ Because all you want when you don’t have one is to have one. And then you start to actually get into the reality of having an audience and you’re like, this could be the worst possible thing ever. I think that has a lot to do with what millennials are dealing with today. You can seek attention and receive it [with social media], but once you get it and realize it’s not what you want, you kind of can’t turn back.”

What’s the Most Effective Type of Birth Control?

There are several factors that go into choosing the best birth control—your reproductive plans, your feelings about hormones, your experience with cramps. All methods have their pros but when it comes to the most effective type of birth control, there’s a clear winner: long-acting reversible contraceptives (or LARCs).

LARCs—which include IUDs and implants—are between 98 and 99.9 percent effective at preventing pregnancy. “Long-acting reversible contraceptives are the most effective form of birth control because there’s no what we call ‘user error,’” says Taraneh Shirazian, M.D., assistant professor in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at NYU Langone Health and founder of global women’s health nonprofit Saving Mothers, “meaning that you don’t have to do anything [in order for them to work].” Over time, that makes them 20 times more effective than birth control pills, the patch, or the vaginal ring, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

It’s not just the effectiveness that makes LARCs a solid choice for birth control. “It’s a one-time cost. They’re long-acting. They have minimal side effects, for the most part,” says Kecia Gaither, M.D., ob-gyn, maternal fetal medicine specialist and director of perinatal services at NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln. “When you’re looking at the big picture, those are some really nice things to consider.”

But what, exactly, are the different types of LARCs? How do they work? And how effective are they preventing pregnancy—especially when compared to other forms of birth control? We asked the experts to break it down.

Types of LARCs

There are two different types of long-active reversible contraceptives: Intrauterine devices (better known as IUDs), which are inserted into the uterus, and the implant, a small rod-shaped device that is implanted under the skin of the upper arm.

IUDs

There are actually two different types of IUDs—copper IUDs and hormonal IUDs. While they’re both extremely effective at preventing pregnancy, they work in completely different ways.

The Copper IUD

The copper IUD is approved to work for the longest duration of time—10 years. (Though your gyno can remove it at any time if you want to start getting pregnant.) It’s also completely non-hormonal. “It basically creates an inhospitable environment for pregnancy. The copper presence prevents the fusion of the egg and the sperm,” explains Shirazian. It’s a great option if you don’t want to get pregnant any time in the near (or distant!) future or if you want a completely hormone-free method of birth control.

The Hormonal IUD

The Hormonal IUD prevents pregnancy through introducing the hormone progesterone—one of the two hormones typically used in the birth control pill—into your system. “What progesterone does from a contraceptive point of view is it thickens the cervical mucus, which makes it difficult for the sperm to even get through the cervix and into the uterus,” says Gaither. “The other thing that hormonal contraception devices do is inhibit ovulation,” she adds. “So you’ve got a two-hit wonder from using the hormonal IUD.”

Hormonal IUDs are over 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy and last between three and six years. (The length of effectiveness for hormonal IUDs depends on the brand).

Implants

If an IUD doesn’t feel like the right fit for you, there’s another LARC option: The birth control implant.

The implant works much the same way as the hormonal IUD. Instead of being placed in the uterus, the implant is a small device about the size of a matchstick that’s placed in your upper arm just underneath the skin, explains Shirazian. Like the IUD, it also secretes a form of progestin. “Progesterone has the same effect whether it’s subdermal or in the uterus,” says Shirazian. “Progesterone is absorbed into the bloodstream and the presence of progesterone basically has the same effect as the hormonal IUD would.”

Satin Outfit: The One Trick to Make All Your Fall Outfits Feel Fancier

When it comes to layering, the strategy normally revolves around one thing, and one thing only: staying warm. Once you achieve that goal, you can move on to think about other things: how the different elements of your outfit fit together, what colors you can wear together, and what’s missing from the mix to make the whole thing feel cohesive. It turns out there’s a single layer you can add that can make anything you’re wearing appear more luxe and elegant. It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, nor does it have to be particularly dressy—but it has the power to transform your look. It comes down to a single fabric: satin.

It’s not a new trend, by any means. But since the comeback of lingerie and pajama dressing a few years ago, stylish people across the globe have really embraced satin-look pieces, weaving them into their wardrobes alongside more tailored pieces. And it makes any outfit, whether it’s a casual jeans-and-blazer situation for brunch or a tailored suiting moment, look more expensive than it might actually be. Need proof? Here are some satin outfits that’ll convince you that, yes, you need some of these key pieces for fall.

A simple satin slip skirt is an underrated essential. If you already own that one leopard midi, you know why: It’s versatile, it pairs well with any kind of top, and it works for every season.

Mix and match different fabrics, like a satin top with tweed bottoms, to create some cool visual contrast.

Once you clock out at work, swap your tailored two-piece for a satin-look suit in the evening.

A pair of long satin pants are glorified pajamas—but when you style them with a polished blazer as a top, who can tell?

Throw on a satin maxi dress over a fitted printed top to tone down an all-over pattern.
