Look, I get that flower nail designs are nothing new (cue The Devil Wears Prada reference here), but after months away from the salon, any nail art feels like the freshest thing on the planet. Paired with the fact that floral art is usually reserved for the warmer months, opting for some right now actually feels unexpected—even edgy, depending on the kind of design you go for, since there are more ways to wear flowers on your nails than ever. Cartoonish, retro ’70s florals are definitely fall’s top trend thanks to celebs like Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid, while Etsy is full of photo-realistic decals that look modern as hell. And if you prefer a more saccharine take, there are plenty of sweet, delicate riffs on florals too.
Whatever your preference—and skill level—we rounded up a ton of our favorite ideas that will last you from now through spring time and beyond. Scroll on for the best flower nail designs, and get ready to screenshot. You’re going to want to try these asap.

In late September, Chrissy Teigen revealed she and John Legend lost their third baby due to pregnancy complications. She’s been relatively quiet on social media since then, but now she’s returned online to talk about her experience.
Teigen published an essay to Medium where she opens to the world for the first time up about losing her third baby. (She and Legend have two other children together, Luna and Miles.)
“No matter the room or state I was in, but it feels right to begin with a thank you,” she wrote. “For weeks, our floors have been covered in flowers of kindness. Notes have flooded in and have each been read with our own teary eyes. Social media messages from strangers have consumed my days, most starting with, ‘’you probably won’t read this, but…’. I can assure you, I did.”
She then talked more specifically about what happened with her third pregnancy deliver. (She and Legend had already picked out a name of the baby boy: Jack.)
“At this point I had already come to terms with what would happen: I would have an epidural and be induced to deliver our 20 week old, a boy that would have never survived in my belly (please excuse these simple terms),” she wrote. “I was previously on bedrest for over a month, just trying to get the little dude to 28 weeks, a ‘safer’ zone for the fetus. My doctors diagnosed me with partial placenta abruption. I had always had placenta problems. I had to deliver Miles a month early because his stomach wasn’t getting enough food from my placenta. But this was my first abruption. We monitored it very closely, hoping for things to heal and stop. In bed, I bled and bled, lightly but all day, changing my own diapers every couple of hours when the blood got uncomfortable to lay in.”
She continued later in the essay, “After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming—it was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either. We had tried bags and bags of blood transfusions, every single one going right through me like we hadn’t done anything at all. Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go in the morning. I cried a little at first, then went into full blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness.”
Teigen is referring to the photos she posted to Instagram when she first revealed the pregnancy loss. She garnered some criticism online for posting them, which she addressed in her essay as well.
“I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos,” she wrote. “How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me.”
Teigen says Jack’s ashes are now in a small box, which the family will soil into a tree at their new home: “the one we got with his room in mind,” she wrote.
“People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart,” she also wrote in her piece..” A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. It doesn’t feel empty, this space. It feels full.”
It’s a new year and a new decade, and there are plenty of celebrity engagements popping up.
Celebrity relationships seem to move at the speed of light; one minute they’re in, and the next minute they’re out. But sometimes love really can win—even in Hollywood. So to help you keep track of all the new love and the impending weddings of A-listers, we’ve gathered a list all the celebrity engagements in 2020…so far.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are engaged after five years of dating.
The couple announced the news on Instagram Tuesday, October 27. “Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES,” Shelton wrote in his caption alongside a photo of himself and Stefani kissing. She’s holding engagement ring hand up; however, the pic is too far away to for us to get a good look at the rock.
“Yes, please!” Stefani captioned her post of the same photo. Check out their announcements for yourself, below:
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, both co-hosts on The Voice, were confirmed to be dating in November 2015. Stefani has three children from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale. Shelton, meanwhile, was previously married to country singer Miranda Lambert. They split in 2015.
“It’s not something that anybody could have seen coming, besides God, I guess,” Shleton told Entertainment Tonight in 2016 about his relationship with Stefani. “It doesn’t look like it would make sense, you know? But all I can tell you is, it does. It just makes the most perfect sense for us and where we’re at in our lives. I tell people all the time, ‘Gwen saved my life last year.’ She did, and I think she would probably tell you something similar about me.”
Stefani and Shelton were going through divorces around the same time, something she opened up about to Harper’s Bazaar in 2016. “[Backstage on the set of The Voice] Blake was like, ‘Everybody, before we go out there, I want to let everyone know that by the time this airs, I will be divorced.’” she told the magazine. “It was like being handed this gift of a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time and then everything flipped. It went from horrible to, like, hopeful and like, ‘Wow, God, you just don’t know what’s gonna happen next.'”
The Selena Netflix series is one of the most anticipated offerings of the TV season. Aptly titled Selena: The Series, the show will chronicle the late Tejano singer’s family life, relationships, and rise to fame. Selena is such a beloved figure and one adaption of her story, starring Jennifer Lopez as Selena, already has the hearts of so many. Will this new TV show have a similar effect?
It certainly has the appropriate elements. Selena’s sister, Suzette, and her father, Abraham, are executive producers, so rest assured her story will be done right. The casting is also spot-on, with the actors looking very similar to the people they play. Below, check out 10 side-by-side pics of the Selena Netflix series cast vs. their IRL counterparts. The resemblance on some of them is uncanny.
Selena: The Series premieres on Netflix December 4. For more info on what to expect, click here.
“I am working really hard,” she says. She’s been phonebanking, textbanking, postcarding, and working to persuade friends. “Even though I feel anxious and stressed and all of that, if I don’t act then I’ll sort of swallow that all and will just feel completely paralyzed,” she says. “And so instead, what I do, is: I act. And then on November 4 or whenever, I’ll be able to look at myself in the mirror and know that I actually tried to do something.”
Passmore has had some practice—she did campaign for the Democrats in the 2016 election (albeit not as much then as she has been in 2020), and she is involved in community building through her church and her job. Her barrier to entry for volunteering was pretty low, and she has taken on a lot.
But Nabrynski, like many people, just isn’t comfortable with calling strangers. “It’s really hard for me,” she says. “I get hysterical.” She’s challenged herself to do some phone banking, but she’s mostly had to find other ways to make a difference in the election. “I don’t make a ton of money with my job, but I’ve been donating a ton to Black Lives Matter, trans organizations, and Jaime Harrison and Marquita Bradshaw,” she says, naming Democratic candidates running for Senate in South Carolina and her state, Tennessee. She’s not wealthy, but she’s happy to budget for this, she says. “I just feel good about myself donating, knowing that my energy can go towards very specific battles rather than just freaking out if Trump wins again.”
Eittreim, now 21 and a college student in Chicago, has doubled down on her commitment to doing what she can for the people she cares about. “My action has been more on a personal level,” she says. She’s been spending time reaching out to friends and family members—especially the ones who think their votes don’t matter—and helping them get informed about what’s on their ballots. It helps her deal with the fact that she’s “terrified about what the next four years under Donald Trump could hold.” She witnessed the uprisings not far from her hometown in Minnesota after George Floyd was killed. “We’re gonna see a lot more of that if Trump wins,” she predicts.
Eittreim isn’t a fan of Donald Trump or Joe Biden. But she’s still working to influence the people around her to vote, and to vote for candidates up and down their ballots who will protect civil rights and reproductive rights, specifically. “I’m really excited to vote for other things beyond just the president because I think it’s really important to take your [choices for] local government into consideration because those are going to affect you directly.”
She has spent a lot of time on social media, sharing the fact that without Planned Parenthood’s discounts, she wouldn’t be able to afford birth control. “The demographic I fit into, social media is where we get a lot of our news,” she points out. “So it’s really important that it’s accurate and that we’re educating each other.”
Passmore and Nabrynski have full-time jobs, and Eittreim is a full-time student. None of them are wealthy philanthropists or celebrities, or have a professional background in politics. All three describe themselves as “anxious.” What they have in common is that they’ve all found the thing that motivates them—and a support system that allows them to take some action in spite of their once-immobilizing despair.
Since the last election, Passmore welcomed her first grandchild—a little girl named Isa—and the change has pushed her to work even harder. “The idea that after all these years, this is what I’m giving her,” she says, referring to the state of the country under the Trump administration, “gives me a stomachache.”
Cristina opens with an arresting scene: A woman, getting her hair buzzed, offers some beauty advice. Wait to shave your head until after the chemo starts, she says to the camera. Wait until your hair starts to fall out.
Moments later, we see her again—this time, she’s casually lounging on the floor as she blow dries a cute blonde bob. “I have hair!” she exclaims over the machine’s roar. “It’s a good feeling!”
These are the scenes that will stick with you long after Cristina is over. The documentary, available on Netflix, follows script supervisor Cristina as she navigates her second diagnosis with breast cancer, which had metastasized into her liver. It was directed by filmmaker Michele Ohayon—a friend of Cristina’s, which gives the movie a deeply moving intimacy.
“When my friend Cristina was diagnosed with cancer for the second time, she asked me to film her,” Ohayon says in a statement on the movie’s site. “Although she was a script supervisor and knew film, I reminded her what it meant to have a camera in her face and a constant presence through this difficult journey. But she was adamant. Cristina wanted to send a message to the world, in her own words: Live Now. I told her I would do it if she promised me a happy ending.”
Unfortunately, there was not a happy ending. The documentary is short, under 40 minutes, because Ohayon only had 20 minutes of footage. When Cristina was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, she was given two to five years to live. She died five months later.
“As harrowing as the experience was, and without a happy ending, I am committed to living my life to its fullest each and every moment. Cristina was the brave soul and beautiful spirit that reminded me of that through her love and appreciation for life,” Ohayon said.
And while devastating, there is so much beauty in Cristina’s journey. The film captures a true portrait of life with metastatic breast cancer, good and bad. But in between the scenes of seemingly endless hospital visits are moments of pure joy—Cristina sitting in the sun with her husband, Bruce, or smiling as she describes what it’s like to be wholly loved.
The message of the film is clear, and one that everyone should hear: Life is a gift. “You only have right now,” Cristina says toward the end of the film. “That’s all you have… Wake up!”

Yes, Roberts is jumping on the Christmas movie train with Holidate, a Netflix original about two singles who agree to be each other’s dates for parties throughout the holiday season that premieres October 28. The reason? So no one will ask about their relationship statuses. But what happens when a simple social arrangement turns into something more? You’ll just have to watch and see.
“I think people are loving holiday rom-coms because there’s a sense of nostalgia,” Roberts says about the reemergence of the genre. “I know, for me, it’s so comforting watching romantic comedies. I grew up on them, especially my aunt’s [Julia Roberts] movies, like My Best Friend’s Wedding and Notting Hill, which are so iconic. They just really make you feel good. We all want to feel good these days. We all want to believe in love and feel loved and celebrate each other and feel like there’s good news out there.”
Roberts certainly has a lot to smile about these days. She’s expecting her first child (a boy) with Garrett Hedlund, and even though she’s over the moon, she’s still keeping the realities of 2020 in check. “In the midst of such a crazy year that has had so much hardship and heartbreak [it’s nice] to have something to look forward to,” she says. “The baby’s coming, and I’m so excited to put a movie out that I think will put smiles on people’s faces or hopefully let them escape for two hours.”
The Holidate is certainly an escape—as are some of the other TV shows and movies Emma Roberts is watching to make it through 2020. (Yes, she’s an Emily in Paris fan.) Below, she tells Glamour all about the products, apps, and treats keeping her sane during such uncertain times.
My favorite app right now
I’m spending too much time on Instagram, that’s for sure, and just ordering too much food on Caviar these days. But I’m also a secret Tumblr lover. I love Tumblr, which is something people don’t know about me—I have six followers on a Tumblr account no one knows is me. It’s my happy space.
The coolest maternity gift I’ve received so far
I’ve been trying to not buy a ton of stuff because I love shopping. All I can say is thank goodness I’m not having a girl because the clothing situation would just be insane. I’ve gotten some really, really cute swaddles, which I love, from this company called Pehr. They have really cute clothes and swaddles and tie-dye things. I’m loving tie-dye anything for the baby.
A baby product someone recommended to me that I’m loving
There’s this line called Erbaviva that I love. They do really gorgeous, sustainable products for during pregnancy—body oils and stuff that I really love.

The lounge pants I’m living in at the moment
I’ve been living in my Free City sweatpants, some of which I’ve had since high school. I’ve been pulling out a lot of old school stuff during this quarantine. Free City sweatpants and James Perse are my favorites.
The maxi dresses I’ve incorporated into my maternity style
Right now I’m actually wearing Boss Alive, which comes in the most gorgeous pink bottle and there’s hints of vanilla in it. I’ve always been someone whose scent has a bit of vanilla in it. That’s my main girl these days.
Boss Alive Eau de Parfum (50ml)
A beauty product that makes me feel ready for the day
I love the Barbara Sturm glow drops because you can wear those whether you have makeup on or not. Most days I’m not wearing any makeup because I figure now’s the best time to really take care of your skin and let your skin breathe. I love the Drunk Elephant Vitamin C serum, too. It’s been really, really nice.

My self-care routine
I love a bath moment for myself where the candles are lit and the salts are put in. I have a mask waiting for me. I think it’s so important to do that when you can and have that time to yourself. I love Diptyque candles around the tub. I’ll do a Tatcha or Charlotte Tilbury face mask. I like epsom salts; just simple Dr. Teal’s ones, which you can get anywhere. But if I’m feeling a little fancier, Little Moon Essentials is this amazing company in Colorado. They do really gorgeous bath salts with essential oils.

The TV shows I’m obsessed with at the moment
I just finished The Vow, which I loved. I was so obsessed with that doc series. I loved Expecting Amy on HBO Max; I was so into that. I’m loving Emily in Paris as such an escape show. I made myself a cheese platter and watched it the other night. I felt very Parisian. I’ve been watching Unsolved Mysteries, which I’ve actually had to stop watching before bed because it’s scaring me.
What’s currently on my playlist
The Chicks’s new album Gaslighter, I’m obsessed. I just cannot get enough of that. I always go back to Bon Iver. They never get old to me. I’ve been listening to Lorde a lot lately, too. “Supercut” has been on repeat; I don’t know why, but it’s been giving me all the feels lately.
The food bringing me comfort lately
Sprinkles cupcakes have been my obsession. I love cupcakes in general, but for some reason Sprinkles during my pregnancy, during the pandemic. I can’t enough of them. Salt & Straw ice cream, too. They have a Halloween flavor called The Great Candycopia, which, it’s been a problem how much I’ve been eating it.
What I’ve learned about myself through pregnancy
It’s been really an interesting time in the world to be pregnant right now. It’s definitely caused a lot of introspection, but I think it’s been amazing to really sit with myself and really turn inward in a way I never have before and be still. That’s been really nice, and I feel really grateful to have gotten to do that. To not just be running from one appointment to the next or one job to the next. I’ve really had to be present with myself, and that’s been—some days you wanna crawl out of your skin but other days, you feel really good and really grateful.
“If you’re going to drape your blush, rather than right on the apples of the cheeks, move your blush placement back a bit to the top of your cheekbones, dusting the orbital bone and then up to the temples,” says Kasey Spickard, a makeup artist in New York. “Start by building your product slowly, you don’t want to go full ’80s with the intensity of the blush.”
If you’re more of a minimalist, you can stop at your cheekbones, but I usually like to take it up around my eyes (again, think that ‘C’ where we’ve been taught to put highlighter), and across the bridge of my nose like all the kids are doing on TikTok. No matter how much I apply, I always go over the edges with a clean beauty blender so there’s no harsh lines where the color starts and stops.
One of my favorite things about this technique is how easy swapping the blush shade can change your whole face and vibe. For day to day, I like to use a nudey-rose color for a more natural sculpt—my favorite blush for this is Chanel’s Rose Bronze since its warm tones and slight shimmer act as my highlighter, blush, and bronzer in one. For summer I like to switch to more of a juicy terracotta shade, and if I look really dead or want to stay true to the ’80s vibe, a bright, cool pink is the only way to go.
I prefer to use powder blushes for this technique since I find it easier to control, but Spickard recommends starting with a cream (he like the Jouer Blush and Bloom duos). “I buff out the cream super faintly as my base with fingers or a dense buffer brush,” he says. “Then I go back over the top of those with a powder blush of my choice.”
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Bronze
Haus Laboratories Head Rush Blush Duo in Rock n Rose
bareMinerals Gen Nude Powder Blush in Call My Blush
Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff
I know it sounds intense, but the result really does look so pretty and fresh. If anything, it’s better than crazy stripes of bronzer, right?

NBC has decided it’s time to revisit Bayside High. Back in September 2019, the network announced that it had plans to reboot Saved by the Bell, the beloved ’90s sitcom that followed characters Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, A.C. Slater, and Screech through high school (and, eventually, college and adult life). The series will air on NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock, which launched in July 2020.
We’re in an era of reboots—see Charmed, Gossip Girl, and Lizzie McGuire (maybe)—so it was only a matter of time before Saved by the Bell got a new version as well. And the first official full-length trailer, which Peacock dropped on October 27, promises lots of throwbacks to the original. Watch, below:
Here’s everything we know about the reboot:
What’s the plot?
According to the show’s official synopsis, Zack Morris—now the governor of California—gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools. So he proposes a new plan to send affected students to higher-performing schools…which includes, you guessed it, Bayside High.
On April 16, the first trailer was released. While we don’t get to see Zack or Kelly, we do catch up with Slater and Jessie. Slater is teaching gym at Bayside, where Zack and Kelly’s son and Jessie’s son attend high school. There are some jokes about how long ago the original show aired. At one point Justin Bieber gets called “old.” Sigh.
Who’s in the cast?
The Hollywood Reporter announced on January 6 that Josie Totah would star. Totah will play Lexi, described by THR as “a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High, who is both admired and feared by her fellow students.” Totah, who came out as transgender in 2018, said at the TCAs that playing a transgender student on TV that wasn’t all about her identity was an incredible opportunity. “She’s in theater, she’s evil, and she just happens to be transgender…. I can’t wait for people to be able to see themselves onscreen in that way.”
Totah will be joined by a few original cast members, including Berkley and Mario Lopez. Berkley announced that they had signed on to the project back in September 2019.
