Cindy Crawford has shared an epic celebrity throwback photo on social media, with the snap featuring the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Gabrielle Union.

The supermodel posted the star-studded image on Instagram in honour of the popular hashtag #WCW, which stands for Woman Crush Wednesday.

Actresses Aniston, Union, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Deidre Hall, Allison Janney, Fran Drescher, models Amber Valletta, Rachel Hunter, and TV host Nancy O’Dell all feature in the picture taken in 2003.

And eagle-eyed fans even spotted the late Carrie Fisher and her daughter Billie Lourd in the 16-person photo, which fans of Cindy said was the best celebrity group photo since Ellen DeGeneres’s record-breaking Oscars selfie in 2014.

“That’s a lot of girl power in one photo. #WCW,” the 53-year-old model wrote in the caption.

While followers speculated about the exact event the women were at – with one even suggesting it was Hunter’s wedding to Rod Stewart in 1990 as the model is wearing a white strapless dress – it was, in fact, a charity fashion show which raised money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, according to editors at People.com.

The women walked the catwalk as attendees placed bids on luxury items including five-star trips to Paris, Greece, and New York.

“OMGGGGGG!! That felt like 5 min ago!!!” Union commented on the snap, while So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley wrote: “Good lord! Now that’s a gang!”

Since the photo was taken, beloved Star Wars icon Fisher has passed away. She died following a stroke in December 2016.

Ashley Graham has excitedly announced she’s expecting a baby boy.

The curvy model shared the surprise news during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday while she was participating in a lightning round of questions with the host.

Beginning with questions like, “Besides your husband, who do you have a crush on?”, in the final seconds of the game, Ellen asked, “Are you having a boy or a girl?”

“I’m having a boy!” Ashley screamed, before waving her arms and exclaiming: “I’m gonna be a mommy to a boy!”

Her due date is in January. Elsewhere in the lightning round, the 32-year-old confessed that her most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction was at Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty fashion show in September.

“My pants split in the crotch at the Fenty show,” the star laughed.

Ashley sweetly announced her pregnancy news on Instagram back in August, revealing she and husband Justin Ervin were expecting their first child together.

“Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life,” she began the post. “It has been the best journey with my favourite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin Life is about to get even better.”

The former America’s Next Top Model judge has been candidly sharing her pregnancy journey on social media, and recently posted a nude video on Instagram.

“Getting bigger and bigger and trying to embrace my new body every day. It’s a journey and I’m so thankful to have such a supportive community,” she told her followers.

Artist suing Ellen DeGeneres and Walmart over heart design in clothing collection

An artist is suing Ellen DeGeneres and Walmart over a heart design used in their clothing collaboration.

Last year, the talk show host joined forces with the U.S. retail giant to launch EV1, a 60-piece collection featuring T-shirts, bomber jackets, jeans, leisurewear, bags, and footwear, all priced under $30 (£25).

New York-based street artist Julian Rivera filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Walmart bosses and DeGeneres on Monday and claimed his “love” design was copied without permission on several items of clothing from the EV1 collection.

According to documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Rivera said he has “diligently controlled distribution of his work in order to protect his reputation”, and alleged that people may think he has falsely struck up a deal with Walmart.

“People who recognised his design in the EV1 Collection would have concluded that Rivera ‘sold out,’ diminishing the value of his work and reputation,” his attorney Jeffrey Gluck wrote in the complaint.

Rivera sent a cease and desist letter to Walmart bosses in May, and earlier this month the retail giant’s lawyers “asserted that it had not copied the Design, that its own graphic was quite different, and that the Design was only minimally creative.”

The artist is suing for copyright infringement and unfair competition and is seeking an unknown amount of monetary damages. He also wants any pieces of clothing featuring his artwork to be recalled.

A Walmart spokesman said to The Hollywood Reporter in a statement on Tuesday that they “respect the intellectual property rights of others” and will “respond appropriately with the court”.

A representative for DeGeneres has yet to comment.

Demi Moore has returned to her exercise regime after taking a four-year break from working out.

The Ghost actress took to Instagram earlier this week to share a video of her doing a dance routine in front of an interactive mirror known as the Mirror.

“I haven’t exercised in, like, over four years,” she admitted in the footage before launching into a warmup. “So, this gonna be my next jam. Here I go. Wish me luck!”

Demi captioned the post by sharing her plan to do a 15-minute workout but confessed, “I am stalling!”

Later, she uploaded a second video showing her performing the moves in the dance cardio routine and told fans that her debut session “flew by” and added hashtags including #LovingLife, #BackInAction, #TightenUp and #GIJane, a reference to her 1997 film, in which she portrayed a super fit soldier.

The Mirror is a full-length mirror, which when turned on, allows users to follow along to an exercise instructor. Other celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Ellen DeGeneres, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston have all praised the product, though it is priced at $1,495 (£1,180) and has a $39 (£30) per month subscription fee, which gives users unlimited live and on-demand workouts.

Demi’s new workout plan comes just over a month after she confirmed that her memoir, to be titled Inside Out, will be released in September.

Described as a “story of survival, success, and surrender,” the book will delve into her high-profile relationships, successful acting career, battle with addiction, body image issues, and parenthood.

“As much as her story is about adversity, it is also about tremendous resilience,” a synopsis reads. “In this deeply candid and reflective memoir, Demi pulls back the curtain and opens up about her career and personal life-laying bare her tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with raising a family, and her journey toward open-heartedness.”

Ashley Graham totally lost her cool when she met her “idol” Jennifer Lopez for the first time.

The plus-size model is one of the hottest names in the fashion industry and has landed gigs for the likes of Lane Bryant, Revlon, and Rag & Bone.

Ashley is also a vocal advocate for inclusivity and body positivity, and during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show which airs in the U.S. on Monday (26Nov18), she confessed that she became very starstruck when she recently met famously curvy superstar Jennifer in Las Vegas.

“I got invited to her after-party, after her concert, her last concert in Vegas, of course, I went to the after-party, I wanted to meet her oh-so-badly. So, I waited up really late because I’m not a night person, I’m a morning girl, but I was like, ‘I’m gonna meet JLo,’ and I broke a cardinal rule,” the 31-year-old recalled. “I don’t like it when people come up to me when I’m eating, and I don’t want to go up to a celebrity when they’re eating, but she was eating and it was late and I needed to go.”

Accordingly, Ashley rocked up to Jennifer and her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez’s table and introduced herself. The brunette beauty explained that the On the Floor hitmaker was very sweet, but she quickly found herself babbling.

“I say, ‘First of all, I have a podcast, it’s called Pretty Big Deal and actually Kim Kardashian was just on it, and we were talking about you and how you’ve just been body goals for us, you know I’m a curvy girl, you’re a curvy girl, she’s a curvy girl, so hi, would you like to be on it? Oh, can we take a selfie.’ Then click, click, click. And she’s like, ‘Just have fun, have fun tonight.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m gonna. Thank you,'” she laughed.

During the interview, Ashley spoke about her new project with host Ellen, YouTube series Fearless, too, and shared that the venture is all about giving people the confidence to pursue their dreams.

“What Fearless is about is giving people confidence to take that next step in their life where they haven’t been able to get. It’s about having hard conversations and I thought it was really a part of who I am, ’cause I want to build up self-esteem in people regardless of if it is on the exterior or the interior,” the model added.

Octavia Spencer grateful to co-star Mark Wahlberg for work-out makeover

Mark Wahlberg gave his Instant Family co-star Octavia Spencer a work-out makeover during a 4am gym session.

The Oscar winner told the action man she wanted to be in better shape and he invited her to join him at his home gym for a pre-dawn shape-up.

Spencer had heard all about the actor’s early morning gym busting, but thought they were just made up to boost the muscle man’s appeal.

“He really rubbed off on me,” The Shape of Water star told U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. “I was kinda stalking him on the Internet, and I didn’t think that it was real – the waking up and working out at four o’ clock… but they really do get up every morning…

“I did it once with him and then I do it on Mondays with my trainer… All joking aside, he (Wahlberg) is such a fitness guru that he actually has helped me modify what I’ve been doing with my trainer and I love him for that.

“Fitness and weightloss is such a personal journey, so to have a god like that going, ‘Hey, let me help you’, you’re like, ‘Thank you god!'”

Octavia has been documenting her exercise efforts on social media, and last month (Oct18), credited the use of Wahlberg’s Performance Inspired natural workout supplements with helping her achieve additional results.

“I never go sleeveless. But here is what I want to show you,” she told fans in a video as she showed off her arms. “I’ve been working out for years and the cellulite on my arms has NEVER gone away. It’s melting away from my thighs, too!”

“The changes I’ve made? @performinspired supplements,” she continued. “Combined with balancing nutrition and the right workouts the changes are amazing.”

Keira Knightley still vacuuming up glitter from Sugar Plum Fairy role

Keira Knightley never wants to see glitter again after wrapping her new holiday-themed movie The Nutcracker & the Four Realms.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star was covered in the stuff for her role as the Sugar Plum Fairy in the film, and she admits it was a pain to get it out of her cracks and crannies.

“We shot it almost two years ago and I think I’ve still got glitter in my house,” she tells talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. “It’s impossible to get off anything.

“It’s a disaster, and I was covered in it for about four months while we were making the film… You really can’t (get it off)… It’s very definitely now in my contract that I won’t work with glitter. Never!”

Keira also has reservations about her character’s pink “cotton candy” hairstyle in the film.

“We did actually try with real cotton candy but then I had a lot of bees and wasps and flies following me and we decided that’s a really bad idea,” she smiles. “It would also melt under the lights, but it was quite fun trying – but quite a good idea not to keep it like that.

“I look a bit like a psychotic cake!”

The actress is hoping drag queens will fall in love with her character in The Nutcracker & the Four Realms, because she took her inspiration for the role from the gender benders.

“We actually designed it (outfit) with them (drag queens) in mind,” Knightley told PrideSource. “I was so pleased. It was my first time where I could actually be like a drag queen, and I was so excited… I was really excited because normally you have to be so subtle in films.

“I think there are some amazing drag queens out there who are gonna wear it even better than I did,” she continued. “I hope that this film inspires some amazing costumes. Please, please let there be a drag queen somewhere who will be in a Sugar Plum Fairy outfit.”

The Nutcracker & the Four Realms will be released in November (18).

Ellen DeGeneres is gearing up to launch a new clothing brand in Walmart stores.

The talk show host, who is known for her relaxed signature style, has teamed with the American retail giant on a new womenswear line, which will feature T-shirts, footwear, accessories and denim.

Asked what inspired the new label, called EV1, Ellen has shared that she is driven to create clothing which has the power to encourage kindness in others.

“Adorableness. Is that a word? The biggest inspiration was actually inclusiveness,” she said in a statement. “That’s definitely a word. EV1 promotes kindness and love and diversity. We wanted it to appeal and be available to as many people as possible. Plus, it really is adorable.”

Fans can pick up items from the 60-piece collection from one of Walmart’s 2,300 stores on 10 September (18), with all pieces coming in at under $30 (£24).

Ellen has already proved her design skills with her eponymous lifestyle brand E.D., which launched in 2014. She also previously collaborated with Gap.

The EV1 line will be size inclusive, ranging from XS to 3XL and U.S. sizes 0 to 20 for denim and 5 to 12 for footwear.

Explaining the name of the collection, Walmart’s head of fashion, Denise Incandela, said: “We, along with Ellen, wanted to make a line that worked for everyone.

“Designed to be effortlessly stylish, EV1 was inspired by Ellen’s own confidence and optimism. Think T-shirts with inspirational sayings, elevated denim and fantastic sneakers.”

She added that the Ellen partnership further helps establish Walmart as a “fashion destination”.

New designs will be added to the EV1 range seasonally.

Ocean’s 8 actresses made Anne Hathaway feel good about her post-baby body

Anne Hathaway was showered with compliments on the set of Ocean’s 8 not long after she gave birth to her son.

The actress and her husband Adam Shulman welcomed their tot Jonathan in March 2016, and later that year she began filming the all-female instalment of the heist film series.

While she was conscious of still carrying some baby weight, her co-stars made her feel fantastic when the shoot began.

“It was really significant to me because it was my first movie after having my son,” she told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show.

“I walked on the set and my weight’s a little up and I’m just aware of it. And I walk onto set, and I’m in my jeans and I’ve done my best and I’m going to love myself no matter what and Sandy Bullock just looks up and goes, ‘Looking good mama.’ And I was like, ‘Oof that made me feel amazing.’ And then Cate Blanchett’s like, ‘Nice jeans Hathaway.’ This is so great! And then Rihanna looks up and goes, ‘Damn girl, you got an a*s.’ And I of course was freaked out and loved it so much and go, ‘Really?’ And she goes, ‘You got an a*s like me.’ And I can honestly say I’ve never had that experience on a film set before.”

The 35-year-old went on to reveal the shoot was a “real love fest”. And it wasn’t just the A-list cast that made Anne feel at ease, but director and writer Gary Ross too.

“One of the lucky things about being in this business for so long is that I’ve really come to terms with the pressure that you get to look a certain way as an actress, and I don’t beat myself up about that stuff anymore,” Anne confessed. “But after I had my son the weight was really slow to come off, so I was a different size to what I normally am and the director told me, ‘That’s great, we have eight women in this movie, we need to have as many body types up there as we can.’ Which I was really relieved to hear.”

Ocean’s 8, which also stars Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina, hits cinemas from Thursday (07Jun18).

Sandra Bullock is a big fan of controversial new facial treatment

Sandra Bullock swears by a beauty treatment known as a penis facial.

The Speed star, 53, went public with her cosmetic secret during a taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres, which will air on her show on Thursday (17May18), insisting the treatment she raves about isn’t for everyone – but it works for her and helps to fight the aging process.

“It’s this way in which one forces, through microneedling…, it pushes through the skin and ruptures the collagen and boosts it,” Sandra explained. “You look like a burn victim for a day, but then it pushes the serum… an extraction from a piece of skin.”

As the TV show host attempted to explain exactly what her guest was talking about, the actress added, “It’s not like I’m lying there with little pieces (of foreskin) all over my face. Well I call it the penis facial and I think when you see how good it is for your face you too will run to your local facialist and say, ‘Give me the penis!’ That’s what’s going to happen.”

The Oscar winner also opened up about her adopted kids – Louis, eight, and Laila, five – insisting her daughter is most likely the “one to steal a car”.

“I like that she’ll take a knife and cut a guy,” she joked. “You just want to take off the edge. She will be the one to steal the car, but I think by that time they’ll have drones and the chips in the heads will be legal so we’ll just monitor her on the iPad and we’ll just turn her right around on the iPad.”

She also took part in a game of Burning Questions, and revealed that her Speed co-star, Keanu Reeves, was her first celebrity crush and favourite on-screen kiss.

Sandra also confessed to getting so drunk at a high school dance she had to get her stomach pumped.
