Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu Started Filming Their Movie *Hustlers*, and the Pics Are Already a Hit

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Jennifer Lopez‘s new movie Hustlers since the full cast was announced. The comedy, based on this 2015 New York magazine article, centers on a group of strippers who scam their rich, sleazy male clients out of thousands of dollars. That concept and Lopez alone are enough to hook me, but check out who else is in the film: Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Cardi B, Julia Stiles, KeKe Palmer, and Trace Lysette. It’s literally a who’s-who of stars.

And it looks like filming has already started. Lopez and Wu were photographed on the set of Hustlers Thursday, March 28 sporting incredible looks. The context of what they filmed is unknown, but I’m already deeply invested. Take a look at the photos, below, and you’ll see exactly what I mean.

At some point in Hustlers, Lopez literally feeds Wu a smoothie. Unless, of course, this just happened off-camera. Hydration is important!

But I’m going with this being a plot point. There’s no way Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu drink shopping mall smoothies. They only drink diamond-infused water or some other rich-person beverage (kidding).

Can we talk about this dog, though? He or she is absolutely a part of the strippers’ scam.

See the look on the dog’s face? That’s the look of a skilled, savvy scammer. J.Lo doesn’t have to do anything except sit back and chew her gum. The dog has it covered.

Seriously, I need to be this dog.

Actually, wait, never mind. Now J.Lo is pissed at the dog. I don’t want to be this dog.

What are Wu and Lopez glaring at here? The dog? What did that dog do?!

Wu’s dress here is absolutely fire.

As is Lopez’s fuzzy purple coat. Please bury me in this exact outfit.

Of course Alex Rodriguez was on the set. A perfect Instagram boyfriend!

Yup, this movie is about to be so iconic. Here’s live footage of Jennifer Lopez accepting all the money is my bank account and celebrating with a smoothie.

Hustlers is slated for a 2020 release.

Netflix Had the Perfect Response to Someone Who Questioned Brie Larson’s Directing Skills

Although Brie Larson is best known for her award-winning role in Room and leading the box office juggernaut Captain Marvel, she’s also done work behind the camera directing Unicorn Store for Netflix. And this week, the streaming service shared the first trailer for the film, which is her feature film directorial debut.

It’s a huge moment for Larson, but one person still thought it’d be appropriate to question her filmmaking credentials. (Sigh.) It all started when Netflix tweeted that Larson’s comedy, which she also co-produced, is “an absolutely charming, heartfelt, exploration of the things that drive us and the creativity that adulthood often tries to extinguish.” To this, one social media user said it seemed like Larson was “just riding Captain Marvel’s wave” and suggested she take notes from Jonah Hill, “who was mentored by Martin Scorsese and took years before he made his directorial debut out of respect for the artistry of film and the position of director.”

Netflix was not having it and hit back faster than you can say “Carol Danvers.” The company casually dropped Larson’s list of accomplishments both as an actress and filmmaker, listing: 58 acting credits, 53 award noms, two writing credits, two short film directing credits, one composing credit, one producing credit, one Oscar, and one feature directing credit. Oh, and she’s been in the business since 1998 and has worked with several talented and respected directors.

Take a look:

Larson retweeted the response, calling it a NETFLEX. Which, it is.

Naturally, people were all for this. “The flex, the serve, the deliver,” one fan wrote. “So proud of you Brie,” another added.

Reminder, Unicorn Store isn’t Larson’s first time directing. The actress co-directed two short films, including The Arm, a project that won her a special jury prize at Sundance in 2012. Unicorn Store has received positive reviews since it was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017. It stars Larson as a woman who gets a mysterious invitation to live out one of her childhood dreams. Netflix announced that it would pick up the project earlier this year, and they’re clearly standing by the film ahead of its debut on April 5. In short, let this be a lesson to all not to mess with Captain Marvel.

Dyson Supersonic Review – Why It’s the Best Hair Dryer Ever

Before we get down to the business of reviewing this (spoiler) wonder of a hair dryer, it should be established that I have very thick, frizz-prone hair. As a teen, I identified deeply with J.K. Rowling’s characterization of Hermione Granger’s hair as “bushy,” and as an adult I try to combat it, but if I’m being honest that description still tracks. Its texture inexplicably changed a lot throughout my twenties: evolving from curly to wavy to frizzy (whenever humidity levels creep above 40 percent) and back to wavy (only in winter). What’s remained constant is that my haircut appointments consistently end late, and every new hairstylist, without fail, remarks, “Wow. You’ve got a ton of hair.”

It should also be established that, in terms of hairstyling skill level, I’m a solid medium. I’m neither a styling pro nor a hair idiot, and my typical routine consists of washing my hair every other morning, adding some heavy styling cream, and blow-drying it with a diffuser. My goal is always to achieve curl definition while avoiding encouraging frizz, but outcomes vary wildly. If I didn’t work at Glamour, I’d probably be using a $30 blow-dryer from Amazon, but my professional circumstances have afforded me several very nice (averaging in the $250 range) hair dryers over the years. Each of them has been fine, but none has fully blown me away: Blowouts take much longer than I can abide and are destroyed by even moderate humidity (so I basically never attempt them), and, as already established, my diffuser skills are highly average. Most days after blow-drying, my very thick hair manages to look stringy and bushy at once, with a substantial layer of frizz garnishing the whole situation.

So when Dyson came out with the original Supersonic two years ago, I was intrigued but had just acquired a new $250 hair dryer and assumed there wouldn’t be much difference. Big mistake. Huge. Everyone I’ve talked to who’s tried it keeps raving about how nothing compares. So when I heard that Dyson won a Glamour Beauty Award for the readers’ choice category by a landslide, I needed it.

The unboxing revealed a concentrator attachment, a smoothing nozzle, and what I could tell just by looking at it would become either the best or the worst diffuser I’d ever used. At first glance it looked like a run-of-the-mill diffuser, but upon closer inspection I noticed its interior was fitted with a metal mesh that the air would be forced through—creating two layers of diffusion. In action, this meant that rather than my hair being blown around—which flattens curls and adds frizz—the Supersonic diffuser dries your hair faster, while still keeping your curls defined. On my first time, I got a frizz-free blow dry in five minutes. FIVE MINUTES. With my old $300 hair dryer, five minutes gets me half-damp/half-crunchy hair with a huge halo of dry frizz.

The Supersonic did such a fantastic job with the diffuser that I had to give the smoothing attachments a try. Blowing my hair out is something I seldom attempt because it’s always been a lengthy, multistep, minimally rewarding process. First, I’d spend a good 20-plus minutes blow drying my hair in sections with a round brush, eventually ending up with extremely tired arms and a very poufy, albeit straight head of hair. Next, it was on to the flatiron, which took another 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how ambitiously anti-puff I was feeling. The Supersonic blew that out of the water. What would normally take me at least 35 minutes with a very expensive hair dryer and flatiron literally took the Supersonic 12 minutes. I achieved a sleek, shiny blowout in a third of the time it would otherwise have taken—and not only was I having to hold a heavy tool above my head for less time, the Supersonic actually isn’t all that heavy.

Abby’s Review: Natalie Morales Plays a Bar Owner Who Just Happens to Be Bisexual—and That’s the Point

There’s a lot to love about NBC’s new sitcom Abby’s, and that’s in part because it’ll remind you of Cheers. The show centers on Abby (Natalie Morales), a woman who owns and operates a self-named bar from her backyard. The people who frequent the joint have become Abby’s good friends, naturally, and they’re an interesting bunch. There’s Fred (Neil Flynn), an ex-Marine who takes his drinking very seriously; Beth (Jessica Chaffin), a fed-up mother who lives next door; James (Leonard Ouzts), a lovable bouncer; and Bill (Nelson Franklin), Natalie’s new, socially-awkward landlord. This group’s playful, jokey dynamic will absolutely remind you of Sam Malone and his loyal customers on Cheers in a comfortable, nostalgic way.

While the plot and tone of Abby’s might feel familiar, it’s more progressive than sitcoms of yesteryear. For one, the ensemble is incredibly diverse, spanning race, gender, age, and body type. And Morales’ character, Abby, is openly bisexual. You can count the number of bisexual lead characters on network TV with just one hand, and Morales was completely aware of that when she signed on. (She identifies as queer.)

“When I was growing up, and even today, there was nothing like this,” she tells Glamour. “If I had seen a Latin, bisexual lead on network television, and she was doing OK, that would’ve been huge for me as a kid.”

Morales makes a key distinction here. Yes, her character is bisexual—but she isn’t defined by that, nor is it a source of conflict on the show. Abby lives a happy, fully-out life, something Morales thinks more LGTBQ+ people need to see on TV.

“It’s important to tell stories about people who are marginalized, but it’s also important to tell stories that aren’t necessarily about how they are marginalized,” she says. “We have those already. There’s been a lot of stories about what we have to suffer through to be who we are. If we keep telling only those stories, we’re still other-ized.”

Morales says both types of narratives should exist: stories that highlight the issues LGBTQ+ people face, and ones where they’re just part of the community fabric. “There are horrible things that happen to people like us, but there are also really great things that happen to people like us,” she explains. “There are many, many of us living healthy, normal lives with friends and families, and I think that’s important to see.”

What’s more, the majority of stories about LGBTQ+ people center on gay or lesbian characters, while bisexual individuals can feel left out of the conversation. Even in 2019, bisexuality is still viewed in some circles as invalid or temporary—a metaphorical pit-stop on the way to gay. Morales wants to break this stigma with Abby.

“There’s a lack of respect for people who identify as bisexual,” she says. “I think it’s important to see a truly bisexual woman who dates both men and women, and that’s OK. There are so many people who are like, ‘Bisexual people who are in a male-female relationship are not really bisexual.’ That’s so wrong.”

Abby‘s, however, gets it right. When Bill asks Abby, “Do you date women?” in one episode, she simply responds with, “And men. I’m bisexual.” She’s direct and unapologetic about her identity—and her friends respect it. Morales hopes more scenes like this help move the needle forward. “I think for some of us who live in bigger cities, having friends who are openly bisexual isn’t a big deal,” she says. “But for other places in America—and certainly other places in the world—it’s still a really big thing to live your life openly. Not everybody is welcome to do that, so I think it’s important to keep normalizing it. And network television is the place most people have access to.”

The Products That Give Katie Couric Instant On-Air Hair

In our view, success is 90 percent preparation, 10 percent whatever we can find on Amazon Prime. Think: the concealer that hides a thousand sins, the lunch box that, fine, can’t save the planet but can at least keep greens crisp, and the planner that puts Google Calendar to shame. Resourcefulness isn’t for sale, but a $2.99 to-do list app can’t hurt, right? Here, Glamour invites women to spill their secrets.

Katie Couric catapulted into the national consciousness on air. First, she had breakfast with us when she co-hosted Today. Then, she became the first woman to solo anchor a nightly news broadcast on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. Now, she hosts the podcast Katie Couric, for which she’s interviewed such luminaries as Ina Garten and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. But behind the scenes Couric has championed a cause close to her heart—cancer research. After she lost her husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998, she helped found Stand Up to Cancer, which has raised over $600 million to fund a cure.

So when Couric was approached by 3M—a company that specializes in scientific innovation—to work with them on an initiative to make science more digestible, the collaboration was a no-brainer. “[We need to] really try to encourage more girls, and people of color to pursue careers in STEM. To do this, we have to start instilling confidence in little girls at a very young age and being very mindful about the information our parents are giving us,” she says.

Between her podcast, newsletter, film projects, and work with 3M, Couric found time to break down the tricks to her trade. Yes, meditation is involved.

Eyelash Extensions: How Long They Last, How Much They Cost, and More

A consultation will also help you determine what material you want (most common are silk and faux mink; silk is bit more shiny and pops more, whereas mink is most fluttery and natural), length, curl type (J is the slightest curve, but ends up looking longer, and C and D are the most flipped up), and how many lashes should be applied. A great lash artist will also mix lengths to give lashes a naturally wispy vibe, Shirai says. “At Blinkbar we use a minimum of four different lengths for every style we offer.”

Stay away from cluster lashes

If your lashes are sparse, some salons may suggest 3D lashes, or clusters, which are three hairs glued together to give your eyes a more voluminous look. Avoid them—they’ll only weigh down your lashes and lead to breakage. “You should always have one extension applied to one natural lash, there should be no visible glue, and the extensions should not be touching your lid in any way,” Shirai says. Basically, if they look like falsies, they’ll be way too heavy.

They WILL feel weird at first

It takes a day or two to get used to the feeling of wearing extensions, but I found them to be much more comfortable than strip lashes. They’ll also mess with the way you normally sleep (unless you’re already a back sleeper). “If you sleep on your side and stomach you’re going to crush them and they won’t last as long,” Shin says. “Try using a travel pillow or something that helps to elevate and keep you on your back.”

You might need to adjust your skin care routine…

The general rule of thumb is to avoid anything too oily. I love nothing more than rich face oils, but had to give them up while I had extensions. And if you’re going to apply eye cream, Shin recommends using it in the morning instead of at night so it doesn’t travel into your lashes (skip greasy ones that are packed with mineral oil, Shirai says). Stick to non-oily makeup removers as well: Shin recommends using micellar water with a cotton swab to remove makeup around your eyes (cotton pad fibers will stick to your lashes), whereas Shirai prefers pre-soaked, oil-free makeup removing pads.

…And the way you do your makeup

While there are some “extension-safe mascaras” out there, Shin recommends avoiding mascara completely. You just splurged on lashes—don’t jeopardize them! Also stay away from waterproof eye makeup—the removal will take a toll on your eyes and can soften the glue. Shin also recommends avoiding loose powder or glittery eye shadows, which can build up on the roots of your lashes, eventually weakening them and leading to breakage. And if you’re devoted to liner (though you may find you no longer want it), stick to gel and liquid formulas that won’t tug at your roots.

You’ll have to re-learn how to wash your face

There is nothing as jarring as leaning into a sink, washing your face, and accidentally bumping your extensions. It feels incredibly strange and I’ve lost more than a few lashes this way (RIP lashes!). Here’s the technique that worked for me: Get as low as possible to the sink—I basically stick my head into the bowl—and gently splash water on the bottom of your face and forehead. Then, carefully suds up the lower half of your face and forehead, rinsing it clean by lightly dabbing and doing a light, outward pulling motion. After that, I use my ring fingers to wet around my eyes with any leftover cleanser, following with water. No scrubbing.

And give your eyes extra attention

This is gross, but because you’re not washing your eye area as thoroughly as usual, you can and will get residue buildup, particularly at the lash line. “Even if you don’t put eye makeup on, there’s still outside impurities and dust [that can get trapped], ” Shin says. “I mix distilled water with a little bit of tear-free baby shampoo and use the mixture to thoroughly clean my top lids and the bottom of my eyes.”

Like your hair, lashes need to be brushed

My lashes would get a little wacky when I woke up or after showering. That’s why Shin ends every appointment by handing you a soft pink spoolie and demonstrating how to comb your lashes daily. Here’s how she does it: Looking down, support underneath your lashes with your pointer finger. Then, gently twirl the spoolie on the top side of your lashes (the opposite of how you’d apply mascara; brushing that way will tug at the hair). “It takes five seconds out of your day and it goes a long way,” Shin says.

Never—ever!—pick at them

The only way to remove eyelashes is with a pro—seriously. You’ll end up tearing out or breaking your lashes if you try it yourself, and it’s not worth it. “That doesn’t mean you have to remove them, you can also just wear them until they all cycle off,” Shirai says. Typically they last around three to four weeks, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself back for refills before then. I told you, they’re addicting.

Luann de Lesseps Is Ready for Her Own ‘Countess and Friends’ Late Night Show

Luann de Lesseps: So much so. To get to do this show and have the fans loving it, and loving me doing it, is the best food for my soul. It just feeds me. I love doing it, I’m passionate about it, and I really feel like I’ve found my calling. I’m blown away by it. Having the fans love the show and leave feeling good and happy was my aim. [I want it to feel] like old show biz, like Carol Burnett. I talk about her [in the show] because I grew up with that stuff.

Would you ever want to take it to another level and do a TV special or Broadway?

LDL: Absolutely. People ask me all the time. [Sings “Hello, Dolly.”] I could see me doing Dolly.

So you would want to do something separate from the cabaret too?

LDL: Why not? I’ve done television shows before and scripted stuff, but what about a late night show? There’s space in that field for a woman. “The Countess and Friends” on late night.

Dakota Fanning was at your show in New York the other day. Did you know she was a fan?

LDL: No idea. No idea. I only found out that she was coming, I think, the day of. My director found out that she was coming. She’s a big fan. She came up to my dressing room after, we hung out, we took a picture, we talked. She’s adorable, a sweetheart.

Have there been other surprise guests or celebrities who have reached out that you had no idea were fans?

LDL: Oh yeah, Meghan McCain is a big fan, Jennifer Lawrence is a huge fan. Michelle Obama goes on Kelly [Ripa] and says she watches Housewives. It just blows my mind every time. Tina Fey came up once, in the years I was with Jacques [Azoulay], and said, “I just wanted to say hi, we’re both NBC talent.” I was like, “Oh my God, it’s Tina Fey.” And then I said to her, “I’d love to do 30 Rock,” because I’ve done Law & Order, I’ve done scripted stuff, and she said, “I’d love to have you on.” I never did go on, but she talked about me on 30 Rock.

I know you filmed your “Chic C’est La Vie” video here at the Borgata. How does it feel to be back here performing the cabaret?

LDL: It’s so great. I mean, who would’ve thought I would be back here performing and selling out the Music Box? It’s a thrill. And that I get to sing “Chic” with my own band. It feels really good to be here on this stage. It just feels like home to me. I get to reminisce.

The RHONY cast really keeps the drama fresh every season. What’s the secret?

LDL: Everybody’s got their own thing going. Bethenny’s got a full life, I’ve got a full life, Ramona’s dating like a cougar. Sonja’s doing her thing. With seven women who are strong in their own right, there’s always something that comes up that we don’t agree on. It really is organic. I always say at the beginning of the season, “What are we gonna do this year?” and it just happens. I mean, do you think I thought in season 10 I would get arrested? I didn’t go into season 10 saying, “I think I’ll get arrested.” You just never know, that’s what New York has. It’s not a sleepy town.

The Best True Crime TV Shows You Can Stream Right Now

Hulu’s The Act is the latest true crime show to come out, and people are hooked. The miniseries centers on the real-life murder of Dee Dee Blanchard, a mother with Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome who intentionally made her daughter, Gypsy, sick. After enduring years of abuse, Gypsy retaliated by conspiring with her Internet boyfriend to kill her mother and run away together. It’s a fascinating tale that demonstrates, in a horrifying way, what human beings are capable of.

Beyond The Act, though, it seems the world can’t get enough of true crime TV shows in general. The genre is a full-blown phenomenon that spans all different types of media. Podcasts like Serial and Crime Junkie are always in the top slots on iTunes. Documentaries like Fyre quickly go viral on social media and birth hundreds of memes. Why true crime is so popular remains a mystery. Maybe we love it because it helps put our own lives in perspective. Perhaps it’s the car-crash mentality—we just can’t look away. Either way, our culture’s appetite for true crime has reached critical mass, which is why there’s a new movie, TV show, or documentary release seemingly every week.

So while you’re waiting for the next episode of The Act to premiere on Hulu, check out these titles, below. I suggest breaking them up with some comedies, though. It’s all about the balance.

We Need to Talk About Lupita Nyong’o’s *Us* Promo Looks

Lupita Nyong’o‘s performance in Jordan Peele’s Us is earning rave reviews and even Oscar buzz (meantime the film is breaking records left and right). But her acting chops are not the only part of her involvement with the film getting praise, though. The actress has been out promoting Us on the red carpet, on late night shows, at college campuses—and she’s been doing it in full-blown lewks that say: gore, but make it fashion. And people just can’t get enough.

Nyong’o worked with longtime stylist Micaela Erlanger to assemble the much talked-about Us press tour wardrobe, which has fans delighted, frightened, and glued to Instagram to see what’s next.

“We really wanted to have fun with this tour—the last one we did was Black Panther—and capture the duality of the characters in the film,” Erlanger tells Glamour. “We had lots of ideas and shared images. I looked at everything from creepy carnivals to old Alexander McQueen shows to the most recent Dior Couture circus collection. The overall feeling was a bit twisted, dark, unexpected—but still fashion forward, whether that was communicated through her looks, hair, makeup, accessories, etc.”

Some of these references have been more direct than others. For example, Erlanger reveals that Nyong’o has been wearing “little scissor earrings and rings throughout the tour,” as a nod to the movie. She first wore them to the Us premiere at South by Southwest, which was the first major red carpet from the press cycle.

“We searched high and low [for scissor earrings] with no luck,” Erlanger remembers, “until my assistant learned about this designer, Lauren Kalssen.” Nyong’o wore the diamond-encrusted pair with an Honayda suit.

More subtly, though, Nyong’o has also worn outfits that incorporate the idea of duality, which is core to Us, into design. “This Rosie Assoulin dress was a perfect example of that,” Erlanger says of the brand’s Hans Yolo style, with its split contrasting floral pattern. That paired with the actress’ eye makeup, the stylist adds, was “perfect.”

Nyong’o isn’t slowing down with her fashion. If anything, her Us looks only keep getting better and better. Ahead, read on for more tidbits from Erlanger about Nyong’o’s epic outfits (and try not to get too excited about the prospect of awards season…)

Are You Wearing the Right Bra for Your Breast Type?

We know all breasts are not created equally—but did you know that experts have identified seven different types? Unsurprisingly, that means the process of finding the right bra for each person goes way beyond getting the right cup and band size down. Apparently, there’s also width, length, and placement to think about, as these all affect what your set is like.
