Nicole Trunfio has given birth to her third child.

In a sweet post uploaded to Instagram on Sunday, the Australian model announced that she and her husband Gary Clark Jr. welcomed their daughter Ella Wolf Clark back in February.

“So in love with you. 02.21.2020, 8.1lbs of yummy,” she wrote. “Welcome to this world my baby girl, your mummy and daddy and brother and sister love you so so so so much already. You are MAGIC. Thank you @garyclarkjr for this gift #luckynumber3.”

The couple, who wed in 2016, are already parents to daughter Gia, two, and five-year-old son Zion.

Nicole confirmed her pregnancy back in September by sharing a series of black-and-white nude maternity snaps which showed off her blossoming baby bump.

“Lucky number 3 #16weeks,” the 33-year-old captioned the shots.

The Victoria’s Secret beauty posted regular updates to social media throughout her pregnancy and recently shared a candid mirror selfie taken after she had dropped off a urine sample at the doctor’s office.

“My LAST pee sample in my @bumpsuit in black, which is especially flattering & comfortable towards the end when you feel like (poo emoji) it’s like getting a hug & can we talk about this coat?” she commented.

Nicole and Grammy Award-winning musician Gary welcomed their first child, son Zion, in January 2015, with daughter Gia, nicknamed Gigi, born three years later.

Dua Lipa has been forced to get a fringe because her frequent bleaching has damaged her hair.

The Physical hitmaker debuted her new look in a series of photos and videos on her Instagram Stories and revealed that her cropped blonde fringe wasn’t her choice.

“PSA (public service announcement): This is not a haircut, it’s bleached breakages but I’m running with it,” the 24-year-old explained, noting that she had bleached her hair so much, it started to break off.

Dua was later spotted out and about in New York City, hiding her bangs from paparazzi, and posted snaps from the incident on Instagram, showing her putting her quilted Chanel bag in front of her face as she crossed the street.

“Please don’t talk to me while mercury is in retrograde,” she jokingly captioned the snaps.

The New Rules singer, who has rocked her two-tone blonde and black hairstyle since October last year, also teased her new album as she debuted her new look. “A new era! Thank you for your patience. See you soon #DL2,” Dua wrote at the time.

Her hairstylist Nicola Clarke was the mastermind behind the unique hair colour, and told W magazine last year that it is “a trend that can be made as extreme or subtle as you want and still have impact.”

The Grammy-winning singer is currently gearing up for the release of her new album Future Nostalgia, which drops 3 April, and the star will kick off her European tour on 26 April in Madrid, Spain.

Billie Eilish has openly discussed her struggle to accept her natural body shape as an adolescent.

The Grammy Award-winning artist has candidly shared her struggles with body image and depression in an interview with U.S. Vogue, and revealed that when she was younger, she desperately wanted to be a model.

“I really wanted to be a model, really bad, and I was chubby and short. I developed really early. I had boobs at nine. I got my period at 11,” the Bad Guy hitmaker explained. “So, my body was going faster than my brain.”

Billie then recalled how she began to despise her changing figure.

“I just hated my body. I would have done anything to be in a different one,” she candidly shared. “It’s funny, because when you’re a little kid, you don’t think of your body at all. And all of a sudden, you look down and you’re, like, ‘Whoa. What can I do to make this go away?'”

Elsewhere in the chat, Billie confessed that her body image battles began to fade by the end of June last year, and if she was to offer any advice to young fans out there dealing with the same issues, it is to be patient.

“When people ask me what I’d say to somebody looking for advice on mental health, the only thing I can say is patience. I had patience with myself. I didn’t take that last step,” the 18-year-old insisted, sadly noting that she had suicidal thoughts at the height of depression. “I waited. Things fade.”

Lil Nas X really hurt his feet when he wore heeled boots for the first time at the American Music Awards.

The Old Town Road hitmaker reflected on his year in fashion with Variety and said the neon green tuxedo, zebra print shirt and gloves he wore to the ceremony back in November was the wildest thing he’s ever worn.

“I feel like this is the craziest outfit I’ve ever put on,” the 20-year-old rapper said of the two-piece creation by Christopher John Rogers. “Whenever they panned to the audience, I stood out.”

However, the Grammy-winning star suffered in the name of fashion.

“It was my first time wearing shoes with heels and it hurt so much,” he complained.

Nas, who works with stylist Hodo Musa, also revealed that the rhinestone suit he wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in August last year was created by womenswear designer Christian Cowan and heavily influenced by late music icon Prince.

“Definitely Prince-inspired – I wanted to bring that into the future and do a remix,” he explained.

But Nas’ greatest fashion memory was back in October, when he was invited to Beyonce and JAY-Z’s epic star-studded Halloween bash, and put in the extra work to make sure his outfit would stand out.

He replicated rap mogul Cam’ron’s iconic head-to-toe pink fur look at the Baby Phat fashion show in 2002, and Nas told Variety that he made the costume himself.

“I had been putting this together for a month pretty much because it’s hard to get that (faux) fur material,” he shared. “It was a very beloved costume.”

Meghan Trainor left ’embarrassed’ by edited waist in music video

Meghan Trainor was left frustrated and embarrassed when her waist was digitally trimmed down in one of her music videos.

Back in 2016, the singer took down the video to Me Too when she realised her figure had been heavily altered and demanded the issue be fixed.

In a new interview with model Ashley Graham for her podcast Pretty Big Deal, the Grammy winner opened up about the fall-out from the incident, and insisted that she would never approve of altering her body because she was a “no Photoshop girl”.

“You have no say,” the 26-year-old explained, adding that while she was attentive to the edits of the video, she instantly knew something was wrong when it was released. “I approved a video. It wasn’t that.”

The All About That Bass hitmaker said she originally thought it was fans who had used Photoshop on her waist and confessed that what she saw on the screen “wasn’t human”.

She then insisted that her team take down the video and replace it with the unaltered one, and was left upset about the incident because it contradicted the body positivity messages in her songs, like All About That Bass.

“Of everyone (this could happen to), me? I am the ‘no Photoshop’ girl,” Meghan shared, adding that she was “embarrassed” about the situation.

After former Sports Illustrated beauty Ashley complained about the times she had explicitly told photographers on photoshoots not to retouch her body, only for them to ignore her demands, Meghan said she was unnerved by the experience of being altered without her permission.

“It’s so frustrating,” she sighed.

Sheryl Crow has praised the benefits of “mindfulness” meditation.

The country singer was told by doctors that she had a non-invasive form of breast cancer in 2006 and she later underwent a lumpectomy followed by seven weeks of radiation therapy.

The moment “redefined” her life, and in a new op-ed for InStyle magazine, Sheryl explained that she now ensures to make time to practice self-care.

“I do mindfulness meditation, and the objective really is to quiet the brain. Our brains are full of accumulated information that’s not always truthful. So, you quiet the mind, and, hopefully, as thoughts come in, you acknowledge them and let them go as opposed to telling yourself, ‘I suck. I can’t do anything right,'” she commented.

Sheryl also likes to exercise daily to combat the feelings of “unnecessary anxiety”.

“Whether it’s going for a jog or getting on my rowing machine, it’s a great way of burning through some of that unnecessary anxiety,” the 57-year-old shared.

Elsewhere in the piece, the Grammy Award-winning star noted that her cancer diagnosis, and later being given the all-clear, had changed her life for the better.

“Having a scare with breast cancer – even knowing that I was going to beat it – transformed and redefined my life in so many ways. That old saying ‘Don’t sweat the small stuff’ had a lot of context for me,” she wrote, adding that she had previously been really hard on herself.

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).

Versace launches sneaker inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s iconic gown

Versace is launching a new sneaker inspired by the iconic plunging dress once worn by Jennifer Lopez.

The If You Had My Love hitmaker wore the jungle-themed dress to the Grammy Awards in 2000, and now 19 years later, bosses at the Italian fashion house have collaborated with clothing brand Concepts for the limited-edition shoe.

The Chain Reaction sneakers mimic the green jungle-print seen on Lopez’s dress, and even has a nude tongue to replicate the gown’s daring neckline.

The shoe will be released on Friday and is available in both men and women’s sizes. A pair is priced at $1,075 (£860).

Lopez’s dress was a cultural phenomenon and catapulted the singer and actress to superstardom. However, she recently revealed that the iconic dress almost didn’t happen, after her stylist tried to convince her to pick another, less daring option for the annual music awards ceremony, as the Versace gown had been worn already.

Model and actress Amber Valletta debuted the number on the catwalk for the luxury label’s spring/summer collection, and Geri Horner wore the Versace dress just four weeks before Lopez at the NRJ Music Awards in January 2000.

“Usually if you come to a fitting of mine, there are tonnes of dresses and tonnes of shoes,” the mother-of-two explained in a video on her YouTube channel. “There’s always so many choices. But this day we only really had a choice between two dresses. One was kind of like a white dress and the other was the Versace jungle-print dress… I put on the green dress and come out and (her manager) Benny (Medina) goes, ‘That’s it. That’s it. Don’t even talk about it. That’s the dress.'”

Lady Gaga is “not interested” in making money from her first-ever make-up collection, Haus Laboratories.

The Grammy Award-winning singer is gearing up to launch her beauty line on Amazon in September. While the Born This Way hitmaker got an investor for the company, Gaga has now insisted she isn’t bothered about the financial side of her business.

“I’m not interested in just building out a giant brand and making a bunch of money and selling it; this is my baby,” the 33-year-old told WWD. “I joke about it with my CEO, Ben Jones, all the time. I’m like, ‘You’re going to be prying this company from my cold dead fingers if you ever want to sell it.'”

Gaga hinted at the possibility of a full make-up collection being released in the near future, but for now, she’s more concerned with ensuring her brand is fully inclusive and represents real beauty.

“I see something happening in the world where I think a lot of people feel a pressure to look a certain type of way,” the A Star Is Born actress explained. “Either to look like someone else or to be so precise with their make-up and look so airbrushed and (perfect on) social media to fit in and to be considered beautiful, and I really want to take that idea, and I want to smash it.”

Haus Laboratories will debut the first three products – RIP Lip Liner, Le Riot Lip Gloss and Glam Attack all-over shimmer powder – on Amazon for fans to pre-order on 15 July.

To start, the items come in a collection format – priced at $49 (£39) for lip gloss, lip liner and shimmer powder – with six different themes.

There is the Haus of Chained Ballerina collection, which Gaga said was inspired by dancers, the Haus of Goddess, Haus of Rockstar, Haus of Dynasty, Haus of Metalhead, and Haus of Rose B**ch.

Ariana Grande uses her clothes and stage costumes to convey an “exaggerated version” of herself.

The superstar has previously been criticised for her image, becoming infamous for her sky-high ponytail scraped tightly back on her head, and for wearing mini dresses with high heels.

However, Ariana has now shared in an interview with U.S. Vogue magazine that she chooses outfits which express a fun, over-the-top image in an effort to protect herself.

“I like having my funny character that I play that feels like this exaggerated version of myself,” she told the fashion publication. “It protects me. But also I love disrupting it for the sake of my fans and making clear that I’m a person – because that’s something I enjoy fighting for. I can’t help disrupt it.”

And while the Grammy winner’s music is personal, Ariana explained that if drag queens dress as her for Halloween – which she confessed was the “best thing that ever happened” – then the person people see in front of the cameras is just another role she’s playing.

“I’m incredibly impulsive and passionate and emotional and just reckless. The music is very personal and very real, but yes, if you can be me for Halloween, if drag queens can dress up as me, then I’m a character. Go to your local drag bar, and you’ll see it,” the 26-year-old candidly shared.

The Thank U, Next hitmaker also touched upon her risque material in the Vogue chat and admitted that some of her tracks are just fun pop songs.

“A lot of my singles have been hilariously lacking in substance. You’re talking to someone who put Side to Side out as a single. I love that song, but it’s just a fun song about sex,” Ariana said about her 2016 collaboration with Nicki Minaj.

But when asked on if she ever feels uncomfortable to look out at an audience of young fans while singing a song about sex, she was quick to respond.

“They’re for sure gonna have it. I promise. I promise that your kid’s gonna have sex. So if she asks you what the song’s about, talk about it,” she fired.
