Zawe Ashton Is Pregnant, Expecting First Child With Tom Hiddleston

I love a good red-carpet pregnancy reveal, and lucky for me, Zawe Ashton does too.

The actor is pregnant and expecting her first child with fiancé Tom Hiddleston, Vogue reports. Ashton dropped the news while sharing a behind-the-scenes look at her red-carpet prep for a special screening of her new film, Mr. Malcom’s List, on Wednesday, June 29 in New York City. 

For the screening, Ashton wore billowing beige gown embellished with cascading beads that draped over her growing bump. The off-the-shoulder dress, by Sabina Bilenko Couture, also featured a sheer cape, a bedazzled empire waist, and subtle floral detail at the arm.

Ashton paired the gown with a half-up, half-down hairstyle and soft makeup, both of which played into the romance of the look. (Mr. Malcom’s List is a Regency-era rom-com, so the styling makes sense.)

Ashton, 37, and Hiddleston, 41, met while working on the play Betrayal in 2019, which first debuted on the West End before transferring to Broadway. They confirmed their relationship in 2019, and made their red carpet debut at the 2021 Tony Awards. Just earlier this month, People confirmed that pair was engaged after Ashton was spotted with a ring at the 2022 BAFTAs.

10 Ways to Find Sunburn Relief Without Ruining Your Vacation

Don’t forget your sunburned lips or scalp, either. “The lips can be treated the same way as the skin,” says Patel, who suggests moisturizer like Vaseline or Aquaphor to seal in moisture and repair the skin barrier. Jamal’s favorite product for sunburn relief is Biafine emulsion, which is prescription only in the U.S. (If you’re in France, you can pick it up in stores.)

“To get more relief, consider putting these products in the fridge prior to application for a cooling effect,” adds Fahs.

Drink lots of water

Drinking water and staying hydrated is just as important as applying moisturizer, and this is especially true if sunburn blisters have developed. This is because, according to Patel, large blisters pull water from the skin. So drinking lots of water and covering those fluid-filled blisters is necessary to prevent dehydration.

Take medication

Sunburns come with a lot of redness and pain and anti-inflammatories like Advil can help take it down a notch. All the dermatologists we spoke with suggested pain medication for sunburn relief, as long as it’s safe for you to take. If you’re not sure, speak with your doctor first.

Apply cortisone cream

Cortisone cream can calm inflammation and keep skin from feeling itchy, but Jamal says it’s an especially important step for those with skin of color. Says Jamal, “For skin of color, sunburns may resolve with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, so I would advise using a cortisone cream or lotion, preferably prescription strength, twice daily until symptoms resolve to reduce the chance of skin discoloration.”

Keep your skin protected

Doctors say keeping a sunburn covered and protecting it from the air—especially if it has blistered—will speed up healing, but it’s important to protect it from the sun as well. “To further avoid discoloration, it’s very important to keep fresh skin beneath a sunburn completely sun protected,” says Fahs.

Treat blisters right

“Second-degree burns result in blisters, which are fluid-filled pockets under the skin,” explains Patel. “When the skin has formed a blister it’s OK to let it pop and the fluid to come out. The skin under the blister is very tender and raw, as the nerves are exposed to the air.” Covering the area can help with both healing and pain, however, “it is best to not pull the whole roof off, as this can affect normal skin as well.”

Using a thick moisturizer over the area can help skin repair faster, Patel suggests. If you have large blisters and are prone to scarring or hyperpigmentation, a dermatologist can help guide your treatment. Again, this is especially a concern for skin of color.

No picking!

When sunburned skin starts to heal, it typically begins to peel as dead skin sloughs off. Resist the urge to peel it. “Peeling the skin before it’s ready can increase the chances of discoloration and scarring,” says Fahs.

Instead, Patel has some advice: “It is best to gently exfoliate with a washcloth and repair the barrier with a thick moisturizer on damp skin.”

Apply sunscreen liberally

While skin is healing it can be extra sensitive to the sun, so be mindful of your UV exposure and apply sunscreen frequently. This is a must even after your skin has healed: Every burn increases your chance for skin cancer and premature aging, so start applying sunscreen ASAP and start taking other steps to protect skin from the sun.

The 22 Best Fragrances For Summer, According to Glamour Editors

The best fragrances for summer can be difficult to find. They need to be light enough to warrant wearing them during crushing humidity and, for many of us, they need to evoke a vibe that’s distinctly seasonal (smoky musk? Maybe save it for December). Plus, now that the heat is rising and deodorant can only do so much, spraying a little perfume here and there is your best solution to not smell like you’ve just come from an intense cycling class. How’s that for clean girl aesthetic?

If you’re new to the world of fragrance: welcome. As a run-down, most perfumes have three distinct layers—think of it like a pyramid—that react to your skin, according to Eden’s Garden. There’s the top note (which provides the scent’s first impression and typically lasts five to 15 minutes after spraying), the middle note (usually more full-bodied notes and provide the heart of the scent and lasts around four to six hours), and the base note, which are often less noticeable but stick around the longest on the skin—upwards of six hours and give each scent their underlying aroma. 

There’s a certain formula to the best fragrances for summer Glamour editors strive for: they have to be long lasting and smell good. While some of us favor more traditional tropical scents including coconut and citrus, a summer scent can, obviously, be anything you want it to be, including ones that remind us of old libraries and Rihanna’s rumored favorite perfume. 

Below, browse the 22 best fragrances for summer that Glamour editors can’t seem to stop spritzing.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Is Coming—And We Got a Sneak Peek at the Best Deals

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 is a little over two weeks away, and as if we weren’t already excited enough, the retailer just dropped a preview of all the fashion, beauty, and home deals on the horizon. Like every year’s markdowns, they’re jaw-dropping—and there are thousands of pieces to comb through.

First, a little refresher: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the multibrand retailer’s annual summer sale. It also happens to be one of the absolute best times to snag discounts on rarely on-sale brands like Ugg, La Mer, Alo, and Natori—and certain groups can actually access the most popular deals before the general public can. To help you make the most of the two-week shopping event, here’s everything you need to know before the sale opens.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022?

This year’s Nordstrom blowout will be open to everyone from July 15 through July 30, and it’s available to shop both in person and online. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview starts on June 29, allowing you to take a sneak peek at the many deals to come, plus add favorites to your wish list. And the Nordy Club members and Nordstrom cardholders get early access to the sale: Icons can access the sale starting on July 6, Ambassadors on July 7, and Influencers on July 9.

If you’re a fan of the retailer’s biggest sale of the year, you know that the best pieces get snapped up quickly during those early-access days—so if you want the best shot at scoring your wish list pieces, you can join the Nordy Club for free or apply for a Nordstrom credit card for extra perks.

Oh, and this sale just so happens to fall immediately after Amazon Prime Day, which runs from July 12 to 13. Along with Target’s multiday blowout, Nordstrom’s July event is a rival sale that you really shouldn’t miss—especially if you live for discounts on higher-end brands you can’t find on Amazon.

What are the best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 deals?

You might want to sit down for this: Pretty much all of your favorite brands will be discounted. Nordstrom has already confirmed that Ugg, Nike, Zella, AllSaints, Charlotte Tilbury, Free People, Barefoot Dreams, Spanx, and Vince will be on sale, and you can count on more brands being added to the mix. But if last year’s sale is any indication, once these items are sold out, they’re probably gone—don’t count on a restock. So go forth and add these gems to your wish list, then don’t hesitate when the sale actually opens.

Julia Roberts Tries to Destroy Another Wedding in New Rom Com

If you happen to run into Tom Hanks on your wedding day, rejoice! You’re in for a photo shoot and a fun time. If you spot Julia Roberts, on the other hand? Run. The woman is a menace to the wedding industrial complex who cannot be stopped.

Yes, this one-woman anti-wedding terror is back on her rampage of destruction, this time in the tropics. In the trailer for her new movie, Ticket To Paradise, she and Ocean’s 12 co-star (also her Money Monster co-star, a movie I, and I alone, saw) George Clooney play the divorced parents of Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) who reunite to stop her from marrying some hot guy she just met. They fly to an idyllic resort and get really drunk and a dolphin bites Clooney not in the penis but maybe near the penis? I’m not sure, but I will be seeing this movie. 

Check out the just-released trailer, here:

Given that the same day this trailer dropped, we also found out that Cameron Diaz is coming back to movies, many people are revisiting My Best Friend’s Wedding, which they co-starred in. It’s a crazy movie about crazy people who think being unwed at twenty-eight (TWENTY! EIGHT!) is a reason to panic, but it’s also very charming. It revolves around, you may remember, Julia Roberts trying to stop a wedding.

But that’s not all! This is also the woman who is the one and only Runaway Bride, literally a movie about a bride who ruins her own wedding time after time by not going through with it. When will we learn? Julia Roberts cannot be trusted in or around weddings. She is simply too powerful and too dangerous.

Ticket To Paradise also stars Billie Lourd and hits theaters this October. It’s directed by Ol Parker, who also helmed the second Mamma Mia! movie, which is not about a wedding that goes awry. That’s what the first Mamma Mia! movie is about. Parker did write Imagine Me & You, which has a wedding in it, and also lesbians, and if I said more it would spoil it.

Your Everything Guide to Plan B

On Friday, June 24, the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, effectively taking away the constitutional right to legal abortion access. Abortion can now be banned in more than half the United States and officially illegal in Arkansas, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Missouri, and South Dakota. According to Guttmacher Institute, an abortion rights research and advocacy group, a total of 26 states are “certain or likely” to completely ban abortion in the upcoming weeks and months. 

The decision has caused a reproductive rights—and human rights—crisis, with many taking to the streets in protest and everyone from politicians to celebrities condemning the loss of safe and legal abortion access for people who can become pregnant. 

Emergency contraception and birth control are still available and legal—though anti-abortion legislators have indicated contraceptives may be their next target. In the wake of Roe v. Wade‘s overturn, there has been a surge in demand for emergency contraceptives at retailers. According to reports, stores like Walgreens, CVS, and RiteAid are currently selling out or limiting purchases of Plan B, an emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken to prevent pregnancy. Plan B is not to be confused with the abortion pill—i.e., mifepristone and misoprostol—which are medications that terminate early pregnancy. 

As Plan B becomes a lifeline during this critical time for reproductive rights, Glamour spoke to Dr. Sharon Malone, MD, OB-GYN and Chief Medical Officer of Alloy, to explain everything you need to know about the emergency contraceptive. 

Ahead, Malone answers all your questions about Plan B. 

What is Plan B? 

Plan B is a type of “morning-after” pill that’s not only easily accessible, but also extremely effective at preventing pregnancy. “Plan B is an emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken up to 72 hours after an episode of an unprotected or failed contraceptive,” says Malone. “Plan B is available over the counter and contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestin found in many birth control pills and in the hormonal IUD Mirena.” 

How does Plan B work?

Similar to birth control, Plan B delays or prevents ovulation so pregnancy is unable to occur. It can also prevent sperm from fertilizing an egg or stop a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus. 

Who can take Plan B? 

For women who weigh more than 165 pounds, Malone recommends using Ella (ulipristal), another type morning-after pill, which is more effective as an oral medication, though it does require a prescription. “Plan B is less effective in people who are overweight [according to the World Health Organization, a body mass index over 25 is considered overweight],” says Malone. “There are two morning-after pills: Plan B or its generic equivalent (levonorgestrel), which is available over the counter and Ella (ulispristal), which is available as a prescription. Ulipristal is slightly more effective in preventing pregnancy, particularly in women with higher weights.” 

Are there risks? 

There are no major risks involved with taking the pill. “There is no estrogen in Plan B,” says Malone. “Risks are minimal and the biggest issue is a failure to prevent pregnancy. If the next period is delayed by more than a week, pregnancy should be ruled out.”

What is the efficacy of Plan B in preventing pregnancy?

There are two factors: How soon you take the pill after having unprotected sex and your body mass index. “Although the effectiveness of Plan B is higher when taken closer to the episode of unprotected or unplanned sex, it can be taken up to three to five days after,” says Malone. “The effectiveness is anywhere from 75% to 90% in preventing pregnancy, but it’s decreased in people with higher BMIs. Although there has been a recommendation to double the dose of Plan B in people with higher BMIs, recent studies suggest that this is not effective in reducing ovulation.” 

R. Kelly Has Been Sentence to 30 Years Behind Bars

Singer R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. In September, the singer was convicted of racketeering and eight violations of The Mann Act, which makes it illegal to transport people across state lines for “immoral purposes.”

Famous for hit songs like “Ignition” and “I Believe I Can Fly,” Kelly has long been accused of being a sexual predator. At the age of 27, he married a 15-year-old Aaliyah, and an infamous tape shows him allegedly urinating on a teenage girl. He made no secret of the fact that he was attracted to very young women; in 2008 he (barely) dodged an interview question about the matter and admitted to  having teenage “friends.” Since then, multiple women have come forward with horrific accounts of grooming, assault, abuse, control, and manipulation, some of which were featured in the 2019 Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly. In response, Kelly defended himself in an interview with Gayle King, but while he denied the allegations, his behavior and demeanor during the interview led many to see him as threatening and possibly unstable.

In a letter to the judge, Kelly’s lawyer asked for a sentence of less than 10 years, writing that the defendant was “not an evil monster but a complex (unquestionably flawed) human-being who faced overwhelming challenges in childhood that shaped his adult life,” including sexual abuse as a child.

Federal prosecutors, however, recommended at least 25 years, writing, “Given the breadth of the defendant’s conduct and its continuity over a period of decades, the government has little doubt that if afforded an opportunity to offend again, the defendant would do so.” (Quotes per BuzzFeed’s reporting.)

At the sentencing, Kelly was also ordered to pay a $100,000 fine. According to the Associated Press, he is also facing child pornography and obstruction of justice charges in Chicago; that trial is scheduled to being August 15.

Sam Asghari on His Marriage to Britney Spears: ‘The Husband Thing Hasn’t Hit Me Yet’

A few weeks after tying the knot at home, Sam Asghari is still getting used to the idea that he and Britney Spears are finally, really, married. The pair got engaged in September 2021 and wore  Versace to say “I do” in front of a small group of family and friends on June 9. 

“The husband thing hasn’t hit me yet,” the trainer-turned-actor revealed on Good Morning America, per People. Pointing to his wedding ring, he quipped, “I have to wear this thing now!” He added, “You know, it’s just surreal, man.”

Asghari reflected on their intentionally small wedding, saying, “We imagined this thing being a fairytale and it was.” He continued, “We wanted to just celebrate and that’s what we did.” As for how Spears is enjoying newlywed life, Asghari said, “She’s amazing, she’s doing well. She’s my wife!” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
