Taylor Swift turned up the glamour in a glittering dress at the 2019 American Music Awards (AMAs) on Sunday night.

The superstar hit the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles wearing a dark green sequin number from Julien Macdonald, Casadei boots, and jewellery from Ofira and Lorraine Schwartz.

During the ceremony, the 29-year-old picked up six awards, including Artist of the Year and Artist of the Decade, and also performed a medley of her biggest songs, before launching into a version of her hit Shake It Off with Halsey and Camila Cabello.

Other stars to make a splash on the red carpet included Selena Gomez, who opted for a chartreuse minidress from Versace and Roberto Coin jewellery, Dua Lipa, who rocked a hot pink Miu Miu gown, and Billie Eilish, who wore a Burberry outfit topped off with a crystal mesh headpiece.

Lizzo made a statement in a marigold tiered dress from Valentino, which she matched with a tiny white purse and strappy white high heels from Stuart Weitzman.

“@maisonvalentino bag big enough for my f**ks to give. Big body b**ch in a Valentin-HO custom look for @amas,” the Love Hurts hitmaker captioned a snap of her posing with the miniature bag on her Instagram page.

Kesha wore a Versace robe and matching boots for the evening, host Ciara turned up in an eye-catching orange crystal jumpsuit from Georges Hobeika, Katherine Langford wowed in a ruffled red Rodarte ballgown, while Christina Aguilera made a dramatic entrance in a white ensemble complete with hood and chunky jewellery from Jean Paul Gaultier.

Elsewhere, Stranger Things actress Maya Hawke looked like a princess in a black tulle Dior gown, Billy Porter turned heads in a white ensemble from Thom Browne topped off with a striking Stephen Jones hat, and Lil Nas X made a splash in a neon green suit and zebra print shirt.

Dua Lipa: ‘My mum never let me pluck my eyebrows’

Dua Lipa’s mother refused to let the singer pluck her eyebrows while growing up.

The Grammy-winning singer is well-known for her flawless skin, sleek bob and stylish red carpet looks, but it’s her perfect eyebrows that are coveted by her fans and followers on social media.

In a new interview with Elle.com, the 24-year-old confessed that it was her mother who prevented her from going anywhere near her bushy brows.

“They come from my dad’s side of the family, plus my mum never let me pluck them – even when they were growing to my eyelids!” Dua laughed, as she revealed that when she looks in the mirror, she sees “good brows”.

The British singer, who is currently dating model Anwar Hadid, blames her hectic schedule on being an early riser, and starts the day with a shower, then applies a cream cleanser, vitamin-B serum, hydrating cream and SPF to her face.

“I never used to be into skincare but now I travel, I have to,” Dua shared.

The Be The One hitmaker isn’t a fan of make-up and tries to avoid wearing it if she can.

“I try not to wear make-up on days I don’t have to, but if I do, it takes 15 minutes max. I stick to foundation or concealer, mascara, eyeshadow and bronzer and then I’m out the door,” she said of her simple routine.

At the end of the day, Dua uses Pai Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil, $45 (£36), to remove her make-up, followed by a probiotic serum and face cream.

The singer also swears by natural beauty products from Credo and indulges in facials at London clinic Pfeffer Sal, with prices starting at $163 (£130).

Kendall Jenner debuts blonde hair on Burberry spring 2020 runway

Kendall Jenner showed off a new blonde look at Burberry’s London Fashion Week presentation on Monday.

The 23-year-old, who regularly takes breaks from the catwalk, skipped New York Fashion Week earlier this month and made her spring 2020 debut with a surprise appearance at Riccardo Tisci’s presentation, held at the Troubadour White City Theatre.

The reality TV star opened the show wearing a cream jacket emblazoned with a “Burberry England” logo and black skirt with fringed hemline, but it was her new bleached blonde locks that caught attention.

Kendall also showed off her new, lighter tresses, which were dyed by celebrity hairstylist Guido Palau, by filming a short Instagram Stories video in her car and posting a picture of her with Tisci and fellow Burberry models Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Agyness Deyn backstage at the show. She was also seen rocking her new look at a Tyler, the Creator gig later that night.

The model, who is known for her signature dark hair, has gone light before – she previously dyed her hair platinum blonde to walk the runway for Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show in March 2016.

Kendall’s inclusion in the Burberry spectacle comes shortly after she admitted to Vogue that she missed strutting her stuff on the runways while perched front row during New York Fashion Week.

“Today I was missing it. I was watching the girls and I was like, ‘Damn, I kind of want to walk,'” she said, before teasing that she would be returning soon.

Celebrities including Naomi Campbell, Dua Lipa, Anwar Hadid, and FKA Twigs looked on as models presented Tisci’s Evolution collection, inspired by the Victorian era in which Burberry was founded. The line featured fitted waists, elaborate sleeves and scarves, streetwear, and a new take on the classic trench coat.

Model-turned-actress Deyn, who returned to the runway for the first time since 2015, wore the classic beige trench adorned with jewelled embellishments, an oversized striped shirt, and pale pink tailored trousers, while Shayk sported pale purple trousers, a blouse, and a large printed silk scarf.

Dua Lipa makes sure she selects outfits that won’t come out of her suitcase “super-creased”.

The New Rules singer, who is the face of YSL Beauty’s Libre fragrance, is always travelling the globe as part of her busy work schedule, and because she regularly lives out of a suitcase, she makes sure to buy clothes which don’t need to be ironed before she wears them.

“I like to play around with different styles,” Dua told Stylist magazine about her wardrobe. “If I like it, I’ll wear it. Fashion should be accessible. For me, that’s about experimenting and finding things that aren’t going to be super-creased, because I live out of my suitcase.”

When the reporter added that it’s a dream when something doesn’t need ironing, the 24-year-old replied, “That never f**king happens to me. It’s like things crease on purpose and I’m always like, ‘What the f**k?'”

In the interview, Dua also described her top beauty products, citing Glossier’s Birthday Balm Dotcom and YSL’s mascara as her favourites, and shared her skincare routine.

“I wash my make-up off every night with a rosehip cleansing oil by Pai, then use a cream cleanser and apply a probiotic serum and face cream by Esse,” the star revealed. “In the mornings, I use the cream cleanser again followed by a niacinamide serum from a dermatological brand called Synergy, then moisturiser and SPF.”

She added that she never used to use sunscreen on a daily basis but she’s trying to be better at protecting her skin.

“I used to use it but never every day. I get the importance of it when I’m in the sun, but now I’m trying to take care of my skin, so I wear it all the time,” she commented.

Marc Jacobs serves up joyful spectacle for spring 2020

Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.

Anwar Hadid: ‘My dad is my style inspiration’

Anwar Hadid has named his father as his main source of style inspiration.

The 20-year-old counts models Gigi and Bella Hadid as his big sisters, and their mother is former model and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda Hadid.

But Anwar confessed in an interview with Into The Gloss that it is his real estate developer father, Mohamed Hadid, who is his real fashion icon.

“He’s my style inspiration – not because our styles are similar, but because he’s always fresh. He’s put together every morning, almost like he wakes up like that – shaved face, smells good, looks clean. It seems effortless, but it can’t be, because for me it’s impossible,” he shared.

The model also explained that he gets agitated during photoshoots as his skin always breaks out after having heavy make-up on his face.

“I’ll ask literally anyone for skin tips. My biggest issue is that I get my make-up done for shoots, and I always break out from that. After a shoot, I’m running home to wash my face. I’d like to figure out what it is, but I guess some things just make my skin irritated,” Anwar stated.

The youngest Hadid sibling, who recently began dating British singer Dua Lipa, has a low maintenance skincare regime. Yet, even he has had one very memorable beauty fail.

“I’m not particular about my hair, but the one thing I wouldn’t do again was shave it all off. I did it with a disposable BIC razor, and I was really bald. It looked so ugly, but at least now I know,” he laughed.

The One Kiss hitmaker gave fans the first look at one of her new outfits, a slinky silver mini dress, as she shared the news on Instagram on Wednesday, revealing the collaboration is a dream come true.

“I can finally tell you…that I’ve collaborated with @pepejeans to create the Dua Lipa x Pepe Jeans collection for you!” she wrote.

The singer revealed she drew inspiration from London looks throughout the 1990s and 2000s, and mixed those styles with “current influences,” resulting in “clothes that are modern, wearable and affordable”.

“I wanted my first ever collection to be about discovering core shapes, styles and fabrics, to establish the direction and mood with a few flourishes!” she added.

“Follow @pepejeans for updates and info about my journey to realise this dream!!!! I’m beyond excited!”

Dua Lipa has been tapped as Yves Saint Laurent Beaute’s latest brand ambassador.

The British singer-songwriter is no stranger to modelling, having previously joined forces with Adidas, Foot Locker, and Pepe Jeans.

Now, Dua is gearing up to make a splash in the beauty world after she was named the new face of the L’Oreal-owned cosmetics company and the star of the marketing imagery for an upcoming fragrance launch.

“The hardest secret to keep! So proud and excited to finally tell you all that I am the face of the new feminine fragrance by YSL. Thank you to the incredible @yslbeauty team for making me feel so at home,” she wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “(And) for allowing me to play a small role in helping choose the final scent and for making my dreams come true on working with a brand I love so much.”

Dua also shared a snap from the campaign, which was shot by filmmaker Nabil Elderkin, with the photo showing her posing in a sharp black suit with a beautiful sunset in the background.

Little is known about the perfume the New Rules hitmaker is to promote, apart from that it will be released later in the year.

Regarding Dua’s appointment, a Yves Saint Laurent Beaute spokesperson described her as the “voice of her generation”.

“Dua Lipa embodies the values of independence and freedom, which have always been part of Yves Saint Laurent’s DNA,” said Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beaute. “It is a great honour to collaborate with such a young and talented artist for our new feminine fragrance.”

The 23-year-old follows in the footsteps of Cara Delevingne and Jessica Chastain in headlining a fragrance campaign for the French luxury brand.

Dua Lipa’s latest fashion project has seen her team up with Pepe Jeans.

The British singer is not only dominating the charts with her catchy pop tracks, but is also big news in the style world too.

She’s previously joined forces with Adidas, Italian brand Patrizia Pepe, Foot Locker and H&M-owned brand /Nyden, for whom she co-designed a line, and now Pepe Jeans has sought out her modelling skills for its new campaign.

“It’s a British brand and I feel like it has kind of followed me through my life,” she revealed in a chat with British Vogue. “I remember when I was younger seeing the campaigns – featuring Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung – women who are really iconic, and I’d see them on posters and on the side of buses.

“It like a very natural collaboration.”

Shot by celebrity snapper David Sims, the black and white images see Dua pose in a number of denim looks, such as jeans, shirts and jackets. All the pieces have been made using new eco-technologies, in line with the brand’s sustainable denim manufacturing push, the Tru-Blu programme.

In the accompanying video, Dua sings along to her song Thinking ’bout You.

Talking about her own personal style, the 23-year-old says she’s comfortable to mix things up.

“Experimenting and trying out styles, without being afraid of fashion,” smiled the New Rules hitmaker, adding that she wants to make “fashion feel like something that’s accessible to everyone”.

Dua Lipa’s diet is all about balance – meaning she never denies herself sweet treats.

Known for her catchy pop tracks, Dua has become one of the hottest names in British music over the last two years.

As well as music, Dua is exploring the world of style with a clothing line for H&M-owned brand /Nyden, and she’s also been tapped to front campaigns for Adidas.

In an interview on the sports company’s website, the 23-year-old admitted that while she works hard to keep her body looking lean, she’ll happily eat junk food when the mood takes.

“I try and stay as healthy as possible whenever I can. I’m never one to stop myself having treats, I do love naughty treats. But I try and limit it to days when I’m not as busy, because if I do eat a doughnut it usually puts me in a food coma!” she laughed.

Talking about her exercise playlist, Dua likes to have songs Apes**t by The Carters and Ciara’s Level Up blaring out, and says her track Be the One is also good to train to.

She’s slightly more indecisive when it comes to her workout wear though.

“It depends what kind of workout and what the weather’s doing,” she shrugged. “If it’s early morning and I’m tired I always seem to reach for something more baggy and loose. If I’m doing Pilates or yoga I’d probably wear leggings and a work out bra top.”
