Bebe Rexha has designed two styles of press-on nails as part of her collaboration with Sinful Colors.

The Last Hurrah singer was named as a brand ambassador for the American nail polish company, which is owned by cosmetics giant Revlon, in August last year, and to mark the occasion, she collaborated with them on a collection of eight nail varnishes called Velvet Obsession.

Now, Bebe is taking her partnership one step further by designing two press-on 3D styles – Rough n’ Rosey and Pearls n’ Roses – for the brand’s new CLAWS collection.

Speaking to People about the capsule, the 30-year-old shared that the designs were “a true reflection” of her style and “it felt right” to create press-ons.

“I love my acrylics, but there are days when I have had to go from a shoot to red carpet to performance, and I don’t always have the time to sit in a chair for a detailed manicure. Press-ons allow for that style switch-up when you don’t have a tonne of time,” she explained. “I love nails. Like I’m obsessed with them. I really feel like (they’re) a signature part of my look… I’ve gotten to rock some sick, intricate nail art and it’s something that makes me feel confident and happy. I wanted to create this design for my fans, so that they can get creative and nail their look at home.”

Bebe also explained her thought process behind the Rough n’ Rosey style, which features a 3D rose and pearl design on a matte black background.

“I love to pair the unexpected. To me, pearls are something that will always be in style, but when I wear them, I want to take them to the next level by matching them with something edgier, like a matte black texture, roses with a rocker vibe or really cool chains,” she said.

The styles are available to purchase from Walmart.com.

Debbie Harry tries to be open-minded when she’s working with stylists because their suggestions could inspire a change in direction.

The Blondie singer, who was known for her experimental punk look in the band’s heyday, has received a lot of help when it comes to cultivating her image over the years, particularly from late fashion designer Stephen Sprouse.

And while Debbie now knows that a short skirt and thigh-high boots make her look her best and feel comfortable, she likes to keep her mind open when she’s partnering with a stylist because they might come up with something interesting.

“Over the years I’ve had a lot of help with my look – especially from designer Stephen Sprouse in the early days. He was very punk himself,” she told singer Bebe Rexha in an interview for InStyle. “I was never afraid of wearing, you know, garbage or ripped-up stuff. But he really taught me about the best lines for me. The surefire shots were always thigh-high boots with short skirts, long coats, and a beret.

“I always try to dress for comfort, though. I don’t like to be too distracted by my clothing because I still want it to complement me and make my body look its best… I always felt very comfortable in short skirts and thigh-high boots. It just worked for me. But when I’m working with a stylist, I try to be open-minded because sometimes you get a really good surprise that leads you in a new direction.”

The 74-year-old also shared how she used to make some of her own outfits, such as a black sweater with “Blondie” written in red, and noted that she has accumulated “quite an archive” of her iconic looks throughout the years.

Bebe Rexha wore wigs after bleaching caused her natural hair to fall out

Bebe Rexha once had to wear wigs because her natural hair fell out due to bleaching.

In the May edition of InStyle magazine’s Style Crush series, the Meant to Be singer confessed to her music and fashion inspiration Debbie Harry that her natural dark brown hair fell out as a result of her constantly dyeing it a peroxide blonde.

The 30-year-old asked the Blondie star for advice on maintaining the bleached look and Harry suggested letting the dark roots show through for a bit longer before making a trip to the colourist.

“How did you keep your blonde hair from not falling out when you first bleached it? Because my hair used to be so long,” Rexha asked, and Harry replied, “I didn’t keep it from falling out, actually! One thing I’ve learned is to keep a little bit of your dark roots. You can’t always maintain that when you’re on the road, but if you don’t let the colour touch your scalp, it gives your hair more strength. It’s probably going to break no matter what, though.”

The star then admitted her hair was once in such a bad condition that she had to wear wigs, but her hairstylist saved her locks by using Olaplex, a formula which rebuilds broken hair bonds and prevents breakage and damage.

“Tracey Cunningham saved my hair with Olaplex because I was wearing wigs at one point,” she shared. “I’m going to do what you said and let it grow out a bit. Dark roots look cool with dark eyebrows.”

Bebe Rexha has praised Kim Kardashian for helping her to embrace her natural curves.

The singer is now a vocal advocate for body positivity, having encountered a number of instances of size discrimination since launching her career in 2013.

However, in a conversation on Miley Cyrus’s Bright Minded show on Instagram on Wednesday, Bebe named reality TV star Kim as one of her icons.

Explaining how she desperately wanted to sport outfits similar to those worn by the likes of Miley and Britney Spears as she was growing up, the 30-year-old added, “I was a bigger, curvier girl. I had too much a*s and too much thighs (sic). She (Kim) had those curves, so I felt more accepted.”

Further on in the chat, Bebe also opened up about how she is keeping her mental and physical health in check during the coronavirus pandemic, noting that she has been making time for regular phone appointments with her therapist.

“We have to be super nice to ourselves and have a schedule,” she shared. “I meditate and I’m not allowed to look at the TV until 1pm… and you have to force yourself to do things you don’t wanna do, like a workout.”

Yet, Bebe also confessed that her lockdown diet hasn’t been great, and while she’s been snacking on Reese’s Pieces candy every day, she refuses to give herself a hard time over her food choices.

“Right now, you have to be really kind to you. We are all scared, we’re all anxious, you’ve gotta be really nice to yourself,” the Meant to Be hitmaker insisted.

Lizzo channelled Old Hollywood glamour at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The Juice hitmaker, who won three of the top prizes at the annual music ceremony held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, wore a curve-hugging Atelier Versace gown that featured delicate silver embellishment as she made her entrance.

She completed the look with a faux fur white stole, her hair in soft waves, Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, and silver jewelled Rene Caovilla sandals.

Billie Eilish rocked a unique Gucci black and neon green suit as she scooped six awards, including Best New Artist, Record, and Album of the Year. The 18-year-old matched her hair and nails to the suit and finished the outfit with a neon green and black surgical mask on her face, along with a pair of sunglasses.

Chrissy Teigen was a hit in her orange Yanina Couture gown, which featured huge tulle puffball sleeves, a plunging neckline, and two thigh-high splits.

She had earlier told her Twitter followers that she had finally found her dress, but that they wouldn’t be impressed.

“Found a Grammy dress. hope u hate it. like to keep u busy (sic),” the star joked.

Best New Artist nominee Lil Nas X also got in on the neon craze and sported head-to-toe pink custom Versace with a matching cowboy hat and cap-toe neon cowboy boots.

Spanish singer Rosalia rocked a red leather shirt dress with fringing by Alexander Wang, and Grammys host Alicia Keys wowed in a floor-length silver shimmery gown by Atelier Versace.

Ariana Grande had not one, but two show-stopping gowns on the red carpet, making her Grammys comeback with a Giambattista Valli grey tulle creation, and later a Schiaparelli crop top and skirt.

Elsewhere, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner accompanied her husband Joe Jonas in a custom Louis Vuitton mini dress, while Bebe Rexha looked chic in a Christian Cowan tuxedo with wide-leg trousers and a jewelled sheer turtleneck.

Billy Porter debuted a Baja East turquoise beaded suit and lampshade-like hat and Maggie Rogers made a splash in a vintage Chanel dress which she teamed with an eco-friendly water bottle holder.

Pregnant Ashley Graham has dressed up as a “knocked up” Jessica Rabbit for a Halloween party.

The model announced in August that she is expecting her first child with her husband Justin Ervin, and over the past two months, has regularly shared pregnancy updates with her social media followers.

Over the weekend, Ashley got into the Halloween spirit too, stepping out for a bash in Los Angeles wearing a costume inspired by the sexy animated character from 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, while Justin chose to dress as late wrestler Randy Savage, also known as Macho Man.

“Macho Man knocked up Jessica Rabbit for Halloween,” she captioned a series of snaps on her Instagram page.

Ashley’s post quickly racked up more than 600,000 likes, with many of her celebrity pals commenting on her skintight red latex dress, purple gloves, and red wig.

“You are so gorgeous,” posted singer Bebe Rexha, with actress Camila Mendes writing, “Looove (sic).”

Fashion journalist Derek Blasberg stated, “JESSICA RABBIT HAVING BUNNIES!” while personal trainer Kira Stokes joked: “Just cut the bottom off your dress and throw Justin’s leggings on and you’re ready for our workout tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, some of Ashley’s other followers asked her how she managed to get into the tight dress considering her growing baby belly, to which the 31-year-old replied, “BABY POWDER.”

And another fan suggested she should have dressed as wrestler Miss Elizabeth for the event, to which she explained: “Couldn’t fit into a corset LOL (laugh out loud) but there’s always next year.”

Bebe Rexha is struggling with her weight at the moment as taking anti-depressants has made her gain some pounds.

The Meant to Be singer is a body positivity champion who regularly defends her size to body shamers on social media and even called out fashion designers for refusing to dress her U.S. size 6-8 (U.K. 10-12) figure for the Grammys earlier this year.

However, she recently opened up about her battles with her figure after a user criticised her appearance on Instagram.

The 30-year-old posted a snap of herself wearing a black dress with thigh-high slit and black boots backstage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she performed her new track You Can’t Stop the Girl, and in the comments, a user wrote, “Wow… you need to lose weight” with the vomit emoji.

Bebe swiftly clapped back by commenting, “No you need to be more accepting and work on your own self-hate,” and then opened up about her weight gain on Twitter.

“Ever since I started taking my antidepressants it’s made me gain weight. It makes you more hungry, it’s weird,” she tweeted. “I’ve been struggling with my weight and it’s f**kin hard. When people on the internet bash me for gaining weight it’s hurtful (sic).

“I’m not looking for sympathy, I’m just saying if you don’t like my weight then focus on my music. If you don’t like my music either, just keep it pushing… Everyone has a story, flaws and issues. We should all focus on our own flaws before commenting on others. No one is perfect.”

Bebe, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder back in April, previously told her Twitter followers that she doesn’t “give a two s**ts about what people think about my weight. I care about what I think about my weight.”

Bebe Rexha was left “heartbroken” after designers declined to outfit her for the 2019 Grammy Awards.

The Meant to Be hitmaker took to social media to vent back in January, accusing fashion leaders of refusing to take her on as a client for music’s big night because she was “too big”.

After drawing attention to the issue, beautiful Bebe wore a stunning crimson dress from Monsoori, and in a new interview for Cosmopolitan U.K. she reflected on all the emotions she experienced at the time.

“It broke my heart. I was so sad, so depressed. I felt like I was garbage,” the 30-year-old recalled. “I thought to myself, ‘This is bulls**t.’ “I was mad. I wasn’t trying to get back at anyone, but I wasn’t standing for it anymore. I was in the studio and I just left, went into the kitchen, and made a video on my phone.”

After posting the clip, Bebe was flooded with offers from many designers, including August Getty, Tanya Taylor, and Elizabeth Kennedy.

And her video has since racked up more than two million views and led to her becoming a vocal campaigner for body positivity.

“I’m sorry, I had to get this off my chest,” the star captioned the clip. “If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 a*s is still going to the Grammys (sic).”

Bebe Rexha feared “she was going to get raped” by a producer and his pals during a recording session in a music studio.

The 30-year-old popstar opened up about the dark side of the music industry in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine.

During the emotional chat, Bebe detailed her alleged mistreatment at the hands of several unnamed producers, including one night when she called a taxi to avoid what she feared would be a sexual assault.

“There was one night,” the star said. “I was alone in the studio and a producer had a group of five or six guys with him. I had heard things about him from his past and I just couldn’t take it any more. I felt like I was going to get raped. I quietly called myself a taxi from the recording booth, which was enclosed, and I got the f**k out of there. It was the worst night ever.”

The In the Name of Love hitmaker also revealed that on another occasion a “really famous” producer had insisted on giving her a foot massage and tried to touch her inappropriately.

“There was a producer who would come into the studio and massage my feet,” she explained. “One time he tried to go above my knees and was getting a little rough, (so) I pulled my feet away. He said, ‘Nah, I’m going to do what I want’. But I was raised to never let someone touch my body if I don’t want them to.”

Bebe also credited Kesha’s mum, Pebe Sebert, with helping her negotiate the negative aspects of the music industry, and advising her not to work with Lukasz ‘Dr. Luke’ Gottwald, who Pebe’s daughter has accused of sexual and psychological abuse.

The Tik Tok hitmaker and Dr. Luke were involved in a long legal battle over her claims, which he denies, and were dismissed by a New York judge as falling outside the statute of limitations in 2016.

Bebe Rexha was once pressured to “starve” herself by industry bosses prior to shooting a music video.

The Meant to Be singer is a vocal advocate for body positivity, having encountered a number of instances of size discrimination since launching her career in 2013.

However, in a new interview with Cosmopolitan U.K. magazine, Bebe made a point of speaking out about one instance in which she claimed an executive urged her to lose weight.

“When I first got signed, the label said, ‘Are you ready to get in boot camp shape?’ They wanted me to lose 20 pounds (nine kilograms). Back then I was so small, I was only 130 pounds (58 kilograms),” she recalled. “It f**ked me up. I was so cold all the time. I would starve myself before filming a music video.”

Bebe went on to mention a female creative director who insisted she hit the gym twice a day too.

“She’d sit opposite me at the dinner table and say, ‘You’re not losing enough.’ All I was eating was salad,” the 30-year-old remembered.

At present, Bebe is very comfortable with her U.S. size 6 figure (U.K. 10), and in June, took the opportunity to reject mean comments social media users were making about her size.

“I don’t give a two s**ts about what people think about my weight. I care about what I think about my weight,” the star posted. “To all the people tweeting mean things to me about my weight you just want a response and you will not get it.

“The hate you breed that stems from Insecurity don’t look pretty on you.”
