Celine Dion and Billy Porter have been named on the 2019 Vanity Fair Best-Dressed List.

The Canadian singer is well known for her love of couture, and the Pose star, who made a splash at the 2019 Oscars in a velvet gown and tuxedo jacket from Christian Siriano, have both been selected by editors at the publication as two of the most stylish celebrities in Hollywood.

Dion commented that she is currently “obsessed” with pieces by Dutch designer Ronald van der Kemp, founder of fashion house RDVK.

“Every piece they do is one of a kind. And last time I went to Paris Fashion Week, Valentino blew my mind,” the 51-year-old gushed.

Meanwhile, Porter named his style icons as Diana Ross and Andre Leon Talley and also described high heels as the most “powerful thing one can wear.”

Dion fell under The Virtuosos category, joining Marc Jacobs, Diane Keaton, Zoe Kravitz, Rami Malek, Priyanka Chopra, basketballer Serge Ibaka, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris, while Chloe Sevigny, Gemma Chan, Mahershala Ali, cultural philanthropist Pamela Joyner, Frank Ocean, Keanu Reeves, Elle Fanning, and Cicely Tyson were labelled as The Classics.

Joining Porter as The Originals is costume designer B. Akerlund, Tyler, the Creator, artist Kehinde Wiley, Harry Styles, gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, and Lena Waithe, while a special mention was given to designers including Haider Ackermann, Brunello Cucinelli, and Rei Kawakubo.

Elsewhere, the most stylish couples included Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet, Rick Owens and Michele Lamy, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, and model sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid.

Frank Ocean urges Pharrell Williams to share skincare secrets

R&B singer Frank Ocean has called on Pharrell Williams to share “more keys” to the secret of his youthful skin.

The Happy hitmaker has long been admired for his flawless skin, which fans credit with making him look much younger than his 45 years of age, and Pharrell has previously insisted it’s all the result of good exfoliation and plenty of water.

“I exfoliate like a madman,” he told dazeddigital.com in 2017. “When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you.”

“To me, the key is just exfoliating, like a monster,” he added. “There’s a lot of dead skin. (I exfoliate) all the time. Like a narcissistic madman.”

However, Frank is convinced there’s got to be more to Pharrell’s skincare routine than that, and he wants the superproducer to let him in on the beauty secret.

“It’s been all these years, and Pharrell still hasn’t given us the keys yet,” the Thinkin Bout You star tells GQ. “He just says ‘exfoliate,’ but it’s not just ‘exfoliate’: We need more keys.”

Frank, 31, reveals he has already developed a multi-step facial routine to help him maintain his boyish good looks from day to night – but it takes some dedication.

“I feel like men just go to sleep,” he explains. “They may wash their face or they don’t even bother – they go to sleep with the day face on. You really need to do a gentle wash and put a night moisturiser on.”

“I really do believe in night cream,” Frank says. “I need (it) because when I wake up I feel very beautiful, moisturised, and ready to have people making eye contact with me, ready to look above my eyebrow, below the eyebrow. That’s the life hack right there.

The singer advises fellow males to use a retinol-rich cream to fight wrinkles and give their skin a healthy glow – but it should only be used before bed: “You can’t have the retinol in your creams in the day because it makes you more sun-sensitive, so you wanna throw that on at night,” he adds.

Singer Frank Ocean has hinted at a long-rumoured shoe collaboration with Nike by sharing images of two new designs online.

The star teased the venture by posting cryptic shots of what is believed to be the forthcoming footwear on Instagram on Wednesday (19Dec18).

The first image features a conventional black mesh sneaker with red accents as well as a shoe from the brand’s latest release with artist Tom Saches, called the Mars Yard Overshoe.

The Novacane hitmaker captioned the shot with a black astronaut emoji as a tribute to Sachs, who is known for his astrological imagery.

“Good work #brocolage,” he wrote, a reference to the term bricolage – which signifies artwork constructed from a variety of materials.

In the second photo, the 31 year old shows off another black pair of Nikes, to which he’s added his own artwork, alongside the original sneakers.

Ocean’s connection with the footwear company extends to his music as well. He released a track called Nikes in August (18) and in the lyrics, the star uses the brand to signify consumerism in America.

Further details surrounding the R&B sensation’s potential Nike line have yet to be released.

Ocean frequently takes to the photo-sharing site to offer fans a glimpse into his style preferences. In April (18), he showed off a chic leather bag he uses to carry his Grammy Awards, and in July (18), posted a snap of himself trying on a lengthy pink ruffled skirt in a fitting room.

“Oh the GLAMOUR,” he captioned the photo.

He is also known for sharing selfies showcasing his everyday pieces, including bold T-shirts with artsy graphics and the popular puffer style jacket.

Timothee Chalamet has landed a regal new role in upcoming Netflix movie The King.

The 22-year-old has been professionally acting for 10 years but was launched to superstardom in January 2017 after the critically acclaimed drama Call Me By Your Name premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The coming-of-age drama, about a 17-year-old boy who embarks on his first gay relationship, earned Timothee a Best Actor Oscar nomination, and it seems bosses at Netflix are keen to tap into the rising star’s talent.

In The King, Timothee will play the young Henry V, reports Deadline. The website adds: “After his brother is killed in battle before his coronation, a young king is coronated in the late 1300s. The reluctant ruler wears the crown at a time when England was near a war with France, and the empire is teetering.”

War Machine director David Michod is helming the flick, and he also co-wrote the script, with Joel Edgerton.

Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company is making The King, with Brad producing alongside colleagues Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, as well as Joel and David.

Shooting is expected to start in June.

Timothee recently told Frank Ocean in an interview for V Man that he was beefing up for a new role, though didn’t say if it was The King.

“The project I’m jumping into is exactly that. I’m going to put on 25 pounds—I’m like a skinny little s**t right now,” he laughed.

The young actor will battle it out with three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, British star Daniel Kaluuya, Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman for the Best Actor gong at the 2018 Oscars on 4 March.
