This Is Why Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Are Delaying Their Honeymoon

After a beautiful, multi-day wedding celebration that included two ceremonies (one Christian, one Hindu), one might think that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas would be ready to escape to a private resort for their honeymoon. (Plus, think of all the sponsored opportunities!)

That’s not happening quite yet, though. Why? A very un-sexy reason: work obligations. The newlyweds made their first official public appearance as a married couple at the India launch of the app Bumble in New Delhi. Chopra, who joined the company as an investor and advisor this fall, said that the date for the launch was set before her wedding—and she didn’t want to miss the important event.

“My work and Nick’s work are very important to us,” she told India’s NDTV. “My commitments matter to me a lot. My word is my bond. And we had decided to do this a long time ago before anyone was getting married and so I stuck to my commitment. But besides that it’s something I’m really excited about as well.”

OK, that makes sense. So where will they go once they are able to slip away? Chopra insists that even she doesn’t know, as the trip seems to be on Jonas to plan—not that they’d necessarily tell the world anyway. “I have no idea,” she said. “Right now, I have just work commitments this whole month … And I don’t know. We still haven’t figured out where. I think it’s going to be a surprise though. I think that’s what my husband’s planning.”

But Chopra also offered some good advice for other newlyweds. “I would just tell brides out there, whatever your priority is, is right. It doesn’t matter if your priority is work, that’s right,” she said. “If your priority is honeymoon, that’s right. If your priority is doing nothing, that’s right too. Because as newlyweds, it’s really your turn. You get to do whatever you want. And with us, these are the choices we took that work for us.”

Cheers, you two! Hope you get some time off soon.

Wednesday Addams Trend: Goth Fashion Items to Buy This Winter

Some fictional characters’ looks are so iconic, it doesn’t take much to see their influence reflected in fashion. Where there’s an abundance of embellished headbands, there’s a Blair Waldorf stan behind-the-scenes. Spot a yellow plaid blazer, and you know Clueless was on the moodboard. Tack a white Peter Pan collar onto a black mini dress, and the resemblance to Wednesday Addams is unmissable.

Addams might seem like an unusual source of inspiration at this point: Christina Ricci played the role in the ’90s, so it’s been a minute. Plus, it’s December and most of the world has begun dressing like they’re either about to go into hibernation or they’re an extra in a Hallmark holiday movie. But there’s something about this sadistic, sarcastic teen with an all-black-everything wardrobe and over-it attitude that speaks to me. Plus, her recognizable aesthetic—high-neck dresses, long-sleeve blouses, Peter Pan collars—are all elements represented in retail right now, and feel relevant on a broader scale thanks to the rising popularity of noir teen dramas, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to Riverdale.

In the several versions of The Addams Family, from its origins as a New Yorker comic in the ’30s to the films from the ’90s, Wednesday is stubbornly all woe, all the time. At this point in my life, her commitment to being miserable, through every aspect of her demeanor, is honestly inspiring: Oceans are rising, the government is crumbling, and rent is due—I’m in no mood for a holiday sweater dress. The rest of the world can enjoy the festive fashions of the season. I just want my outsides to match how I feel on the inside.

Whether it’s through a stitch-for-stitch replica of her signature dress or an affinity for deceptively prim collars, I find it delightfully apropos to copy Wednesday Addams’ style year-round, but especially this winter. Here’s what I’m shopping for.

I Tried 10 of the Best Mascaras at Sephora

My relationship with mascara can best be described as “fickle” (I’m a gemini, so, it kind of makes sense). Whenever someone asks me about my go-to lash products, I draw a blank, because I’ve never really found one that I’ve fallen in love with. Sure, I’ve come across plenty of formulas that have worked just fine, but usually I make my selection based on whatever comes in the brightest packaging or is the easiest to grab on my way through the drugstore aisle.

So when Sephora gifted me a set of 10 of their favorite mascaras for the holidays (it includes “best sellers” and “new mascaras”), I didn’t really think much of it. I threw them in the back of my beauty drawer, and continued to use whichever $5 version I’d picked up at CVS most recently. But when that ran out one morning, I grabbed my mini tube of “Better Than Sex” for a quick swipe, and my love affair with mascara began.

Since that first coat of “Better Than Sex, I’ve been on a full-blown quest to discover which of Sephora’s lash blasting products reigns supreme. I wore a different mascara every day, and found more than a few favorites in the mix. Scrolling through each products’ reviews on Sephora.com, it became clear to me why this selection was included in the store’s holiday gift set. Almost all of them had over 4 stars, and thousands of reviews and “loves” touting how great they are. Of course, positive reviews and the fact that some of these were “bestsellers” should be taken with a grain of salt, but I’ve gotta say — nearly all of these lived up to the hype.

35 Perfect Street-Style Outfits for Any and All Party Dressing Scenarios

This time of year can be stressful. (The shopping! The travel! The sun setting so early!) Thanks to street style, finding the right outfit for a holiday get-together really doesn’t have to be. Yes, there are a lot of parties to attend—from your office’s annual fete (where you really want to impress your boss) to that long-awaited high school reunion (it’s been how long?!)—each with its own dress expectation. But no matter what type of event you’re going to, there’s an outfit that’s already been road-tested by fashion’s most stylish set that fits the bill. Ahead, check out some fresh outfit ideas to inspire any (or all) of your party dressing.

Cardi B Just Revealed She and Offset Are Divorcing After 1 Year of Marriage

It’s time to add another couple to the ever-growing list of major celebrity breakups this year. Cardi B took to her Instagram—because, of course she did—last night to announce that she and husband Offset have parted ways after a year of marriage. She posted a short video addressing the matter with the caption, “There you go…peace and love.”

“So, everybody been bugging me and everything. And you know, I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now,” Cardi said. “We’re really good friends, and we’re really good business partners, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.”

“And we’re really good friends, and, you know, we’re really good business partners, and, you know, he’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time,” she continued. “And it’s nobody’s fault. It’s just like I guess we grew out of love. But we’re not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce. And I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father and yeah.”

Cardi B and Offset got married in September 2017 but managed to keep it a secret for months. “There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself,” she wrote on Twitter in June. “Getting married was one of those moments! Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing up to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other.”

She gave birth to the couple’s daughter in July of this year and seemingly named her in honor of her father: Kulture Kiari Cephus. (Offset’s given name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, and his rap trio Migos released two successful albums titled Culture and Culture II.)

Offset has yet to make a statement about the breakup other than to comment on Cardi’s video with the somewhat cryptic, “Y’all won.”

You Have All the Money. Why Are You Sponsoring Your Wedding?

I’m a 25-year-old writer living in New York City. Funds, as you can imagine, are pretty limited. So when I daydream about my wedding—disclaimer: I’m very single—everything I want is out of reach. A venue like the Plaza? Would have to sell my liver. A custom-made Tom Ford tuxedo? Would need to be cool with working until I’m 87. A registry filled with crystal kitchenware? Let me write you an “IOU” for the amount of 10 paychecks. It’s all impossible.

Celebrities, on the other hand, are more than able to shell out thousands—millions, even—for their dream weddings, and many have. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s wedding cost an estimated $6.5 million. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s nuptials were $12 million. That’s pocket change to them, in my opinion.

The same, I imagine, goes for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. The couple just had the most gorgeous, elaborate wedding in India—and the build-up to their big day was equally as lavish. A Tiffany & Co. engagement party! An Amsterdam bachelorette weekend! A bachelor shindig on a yacht! It’s all so rich—which is fine, because they’re rich.

Why is it, then, that Chopra and Jonas (seemingly) spon-conned the hell out of their wedding festivities? Take one look at Chopra and Jonas’ Instagram feed, and it feels like they had a lot of help footing the bill for their many activities. Amazon helped Chopra out with her wedding registry; Lime Bike and Elit Vodka supplied the good times for Jonas’ bachelor party; and the amount of Tiffany references made from “We’re engaged” to “I do” is eyebrow-raising, to say the least. What’s happening here? Were those Quantico checks not deep, Priyanka? Are the Jonas Brothers royalties running thin? The success of the band’s cover of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” should’ve covered the bachelor-party booze, at the bare minimum.

Chopra and Jonas aren’t the only celebrities who’ve done this, either. Wayfair helped Julianne Hough with the decor of her wedding; Star Jones famously sponsored almost all of her 2004 nuptials to Al Reynolds; and Kim Kardashian made $2 million off her wedding to Kris Humphries, largely because she let E! air the ceremony.

This phenomenon of rich people not spending their money on weddings is pretty common, according to several experts. “The idea of a sponsored celebrity wedding is nothing new, and it’s an idea that continues to grow more popular among non-celebrity couples as well,” AJ Adams, brand and social media strategist for Celebrity Lifestyle Brands, tells Glamour. “When you’re a world-famous celebrity, you’re in a position for brands to want to pay you to use their products. So, why not?”

Wedding consultant Anne Chertoff says spon-con affairs are more common with influencers and reality stars than actual A-listers. “A sponsor for a wedding can help offset costs of the wedding. Just because someone has a lot of money doesn’t mean they can spend $5 million on their wedding,” she says. “The sponsorships, so to speak, are a partnership where the celebrity gets the look they want, as well as money, and the brand gets the alignment with the celebrity and press.”

Dr. Brad Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project, posits that some celebrities are aware they can make a profit from their personal life and have no issue cashing in. “Many of them see no dividing line between their career and their family life,” he says. “All the life’s a stage, including the wedding and the marriage. They want to maximize attention and profit for their brand, which is partly about their relationships, including their marriage.”

It makes sense, in a champagne-problems sort of way. No one wants to spend their money—not even the mega-wealthy—so if a brand is willing to cover some wedding costs, who wouldn’t take advantage? “It’s not a matter of ‘have to,’ but rather ‘get to,'” Adams says. Adds Chertoff, “Having a sponsor is not just about money you get but also about brand alignment.”

In other words, of course celebrities are keen on closing their paychecks for weddings. They save on costs, gain exposure—if they’re seeking it—and can potentially garner support from brands and causes that will boost their image. In that respect, I now 100 percent see why Chopra posted a probably-sponsored image of herself drinking a Havana Club cocktail during her bachelorette party (see above). She’s literally receiving a check without having to write one herself. It’s genius! The women of “Lady Marmalade” really did say it best: Why spend mine, when I can spend yours?

All the Details on Priyanka Chopra’s Gorgeous Wedding Makeup

How much is too much when it comes to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas wedding content? The answer, obviously: The limit does not exist.

While we’ve already been treated to first looks at her incredible fashion choices for both ceremonies and their lavish reception, we’ve now got all the details on Chopra’s wedding makeup, straight from her makeup artist, Yumi Mori, who called the day “magical.”

The makeup look is timeless with an emphasis on radiant skin, Chopra’s always-incredible brows, and a strong lip. Mori used Marc Jacobs Beauty products to create “a soft and natural look to match the spirit of her Ralph Lauren wedding dress.” First up, creating “a beautiful, almost airbrushed, but still natural-looking complexion” with the brand’s Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder ($49) and Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick ($32)—a creamy concealer stick that supposedly lasts for hours. “I wanted her skin to shimmer and glow,” says Mori. “So I dusted on the new Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder in Scarlet to give her a warm, luminous look after I evened out the complexion with the Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick.” (With Priyanka being Priyanka, her makeup artist got a sneak peek at some new products from the brand’s Summer 2019 collection. Both items don’t actually launch until this coming May.)

Elsewhere, though, the products are definitely shoppable—and if Chopra’s photos (or trailer-length movie) are any indication, definitely worth buying.

For Chopra’s eyes, Mori used a coral shade, “On The Dance Floor,” from the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Fantascene ($49) to complement the softness of her fresh skin, and added a touch of drama to her lashes with Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($26).

Now, what about that dramatic—but not over-the-top—lip? Mori opted for a red-stain finish, using Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Boy Gorgeous ($30).

The final look is stunning and lets Chopra’s (insane) natural beauty shine through—and one we expect to see many brides copying in the coming months.

Google Home Hub Review: Makeup Tutorial Assistance and More

I recently fell in love with the Google Home Hub, which if you know me is strange for a multitude of reasons. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a technologically savvy person. Everything I touch somehow seems to break. People purposefully keep their electronics away from me, and I’m convinced my old iPhones intentionally jumped out of my jacket pockets, preferring to risk a cracked life instead of being subject to my not-so midas touch any longer.

Eventually I got better, and I’ve managed to keep both my phone and laptop alive for the past few of years. But right before I got too comfortable, a whole new breed of electronics rose in popularity with names like Alexa. Not only was I worried about all the new damage I could impart on them, but I was also skeptical. Does anyone really need a robot to tell them what the weather is when you can just look at the weather app on your phone? What value do they quantifiably bringing into your life? Also, lord knows I definitely have conversations I don’t want anyone overhearing—blue-glowing robot or otherwise.

Of course, I ended up caving. My boyfriend and I got two large Google Home Maxes, which we use primarily as speakers to play music and as an alarm to wake us up in the morning. And that’s pretty much the extent of my smart home technology. (So basically they’re fancy speakers that I can talk to.) I really didn’t want anything else until Sephora (yes, Sephora) somehow convinced me I could maybe use one more smart product: The Google Home Hub.

Buy It: Google Home Hub, $149, sephora.com

You’re probably as confused as I was that a makeup store would sell a purely tech gadget. Understandable. The Google Home Hub is currently the only product of its kind sold at Sephora, and it’s not like a screen can wash your face for you when you’re too lazy to get out of bed. (I will, however, unfailingly buy one if someone can figure that tech out. Jeff Bezos, you on it?)

So let me explain.

Just like all of the other products of its’ kind, the Google Home Hub is voice-controlled, will tell you all about the weather, help remind you of appointments, and play music if you ask. I’m sure it also has some sassy answers to silly questions as well. But unlike other home assistants, the Home Hub has a screen, which means you can ask it to play videos—like, say, makeup tutorials on YouTube. (Seeing the Sephora connection now?)

Maybe my technology troubles all started in middle school when I tried to balance my laptop on my toilet or sink to watch demonstrations of how to draw the perfect cat eye. Alas none of them actually helped me get it because mid eyeliner I’d have to lean over, pause, and then lean over and play again, sometimes knocking my laptop to the ground in the process. I eventually gave up on trying to teach myself how to do my own makeup or more elaborate beauty looks because the whole process was too clunky.

The Google Home Hub completely transformed my makeup routine by eliminating the need to juggle everything at once. It sits on a shelf in the corner of my bathroom, where I apply my makeup. In the morning I’ll ask it to play some getting-ready music, and if I want to try something new, I’ll just ask it to play makeup tutorials on YouTube for that specific look I’m going for. It’s also surprisingly polite and will pause, rewind, fast forward and do anything I ask, which helps me execute the look at my own pace.

Typically I wear the same makeup everyday so I don’t use the Home Hub every morning for makeup tutorials, but it’s endlessly helpful on the weekends when I want to switch it up to go out or for a bigger event. And if I’m feeling crazy one Monday morning I know all I have to do is speak up.

Kate Middleton Has Only Worn a Tiara Eight Times—See Them All Here

It seems surprising, but Kate Middleton, has only worn a tiara eight times. The first was the Cartier halo style the Duchess of Cambridge showed off on her wedding day. The second was a diamond-and-pearl creation originally worn frequently in the 1920s; it was loaned to Kate by the queen for the annual state reception in 2013, then she wore it again in honor of the U.K. visit from China’s president, Xi Jinping, and his wife Peng Liyuan. She’s borrowed the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara, loaned to Princess Diana as a wedding gift from the Queen, for diplomatic functions—most recently at a December reception for the Diplomatic Corps, held at Buckingham Palace. We were thrilled to see another sparkly princess moment, but it does make you wonder—why doesn’t Kate wear tiaras more often?

First, let’s discuss the tiaras Kate has worn…

Her wedding tiara has nearly 1,000 diamonds in total and was initially purchased from Cartier in 1936 as an anniversary gift from King George VI to his wife. Eight years later it was regifted to the current queen as an eighteenth-birthday gift (possibly becoming the best regift of all time).

Here’s a fascinating tiaras-worn-down-the-aisle fact for you: While it’s not typically observed anymore, a bride would historically have worn a tiara from her family’s collection on her wedding day before moving on to using her new husband’s family pieces afterward. Kate didn’t observe this, of course, but Princess Diana did, wearing a Spencer tiara when she married Prince Charles. Post-nuptials, it was all royal-family jewels for Di.

The second style, which you can see more clearly on the below shot of Princess Margaret, is commonly known as the Lotus Flower or Papyrus tiara. It originally belonged to the Queen Mother and lived life as a necklace before being turned into a tiara.

Duchess Catherine then paired the same Lotus Flower tiara with a red Jenny Packham gown and a stunning updo for for a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

Middleton repeated the same red gown with the iconic tiara known as the Cambridge Lover’s Knot, originally worn by Princess Diana.

In July 2017 the duchess attended a state banquet at Buckingham Palace on day one of the Spanish state visit, again wearing Princess Di’s Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara.

She once again wore the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara in December 2017 while attending the annual winter party at Buckingham Palace. This time Middleton paired the piece with matching diamond and pearl drop earrings and a diamond necklace.

In October 2018, the Duchess of Cambridge donned the Cambridge Lovers Knot tiara once more, for a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in honor of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands’ visit to the U.K. She paired it with an Alexander McQueen gown.

Most recently, in December 2018, Kate Middleton wore the Cambridge Lovers Knot for the eighth time—for a reception honoring members of the Diplomatic Corps at Buckingham Palace. Her regal evening look was completed with a Jenny Packham gown.

So, why doesn’t Kate wear tiaras more often?

There’s no firm answer as to why Kate doesn’t wear the glamorous accessory more often. Official rules about when they’re to be worn don’t exist (though they’re common for white-tie events and state occasions held in the evening). Many have suggested that the duchess’s aversion to the bling might be another facet of her love for high-street style and dedication to making the monarchy feel modern and approachable. Others have speculated it’s a thoughtful choice in order to distinguish herself from Princess Diana, who was a controversial royal for the family and loved a tiara moment.
