Adele rewore her couture Chloe dress while she watched her iconic Glastonbury performance at home.

The British festival was cancelled this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and in honour of the much-loved music event, BBC executives treated viewers to classic headline sets from acts such as Coldplay, Beyonce, JAY Z, Bruce Springsteen, and David Bowie.

On Saturday, the TV network aired Adele’s iconic headline set from 2016, and the Grammy-winning singer was unable to resist tuning in and reliving the experience at her home.

Joking that she’d had a few drinks to celebrate, the 32-year-old jumped at the chance of rewearing the hand-embroidered Chloe dress that was designed especially for her Glastonbury headline set in her living room.

“5 ciders in,” Adele quipped in the caption alongside two snaps. In the first image, the mother-of-one crouched in front of her television wearing grey sweatpants and an oversized white T-shirt, and the second snap saw the Rolling in the Deep hitmaker rocking the Chloe dress as she spun around her living room, dancing along to her set.

The custom-made gown was designed by Clare Waight Keller, who was artistic director of the fashion house at the time, and the show-stopping dress took more than 200 hours to make due.

Back in 2016, the designer took to social media to share her delight at Adele wearing her creation at one of the world’s biggest music festivals.

“So proud – the incredible amazing @adele live at #Glastonburyfestival in @chloe green bespoke beaded dress,” Clare wrote on Instagram at the time.

Alicia Keys feels free after finally accepting her ‘imperfections’

Alicia Keys is enjoying living her live to the full after finally accepting her “imperfections”.

In an interview for the July 2020 issue of U.S. InStyle magazine, the 15-time Grammy Award winner candidly opened up about her battles with self-confidence and described how it was only when she started being kind to herself that she learned to love her body.

“I’m coming to the place now where I’m able to live more fully in my skin, my imperfections, my feelings, which are so hard to access,” she explained. “Because we want to protect our heart, right? That’s what we’re all doing in some way. And I think my ability to access that place has brought a deeper connection to other people.”

Alicia also revealed that she was unhappy in the early stages of her music career because she wanted to fit in “so badly”.

“I swear, I wouldn’t go back to being 20 if somebody paid me – it was literally the worst time ever,” the Fallin’ hitmaker shared. “I wanted to fit in so desperately. I was so blind, so dependent on everybody else’s opinions, so uncomfortable, so unclear.”

And it was after an emotional meltdown at a photoshoot in 2006 that Alicia decided to set off on a solo pilgrimage to Egypt to get away from the intense pressure she was under.

“It was either get the hell away or just explode,” she recalled.

Elsewhere in the interview, Alicia discussed how she had penned some of her most famous songs, including A Woman’s Worth and Girl on Fire, to try and convince herself of her own self-worth.

“Truly. There hasn’t been one that I wrote because I actually believed it at the time. I needed to pull myself out of a rut or a place of confusion,” the mother-of-two stated.

Billie Eilish: ‘I still have huge issues with my body’

Billie Eilish has opened up about her body confidence struggles.

The 18-year-old discussed her issues surrounding body image in a new interview with British GQ magazine and opened up about her battle to accept herself after a tumultuous few years.

“I still have huge issues with my own body,” the Bad Guy hitmaker explained. “Here’s a bomb for you: I have never felt desired. My past boyfriends never made me feel desired. None of them. And it’s a big thing in my life that I feel I have never been physically desired by somebody.”

She went on to reveal that while she prefers to dress in androgynous, baggy clothes, she now feels “trapped” by the persona she created in an effort to avoid being sexualised.

“Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created, because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman,” Billie shared.

The Grammy winner also discussed the video she created for her tour earlier this year, in which she can be seen stripping off layers of clothing to show off her body for the first time, along with a powerful voiceover in which she addresses body shaming.

“I felt very motivated to do it… First off, I am not stripping. The whole point is that I don’t strip all the way to my bra as it’s gone before you see it – it’s not yours to see… I definitely didn’t want it to come off as, ‘Oh, now I am 18 now I like my body,'” she explained.

“It is me saying: ‘Look, there is a body underneath these clothes and you don’t get to see it. Isn’t that a shame? But my body is mine and yours is yours.’ Our own bodies are kind of the only real things which are truly ours. I get to see it and get to show it when I want to.”

Lizzo began to suffer from low confidence after becoming addicted to wearing make-up every day.

In an interview for the People magazine’s 2020 The Beautiful Issue, the Truth Hurts hitmaker candidly revealed her perception of her natural appearance had become warped following almost six months of being in heavy make-up on a daily basis.

“I think I’ve been in make-up every single day of my life for the last six months. We get addicted to seeing ourselves really dolled up. I had a few days off in Brazil back in February where I wasn’t in make-up and I remember being like, ‘Yo why am I so ugly to myself right now?’” she told the publication. “It’s because I got addicted, used to seeing my face with contour. I never thought that would happen because I’m such an earthy b***h, I can go days without make-up!”

The Grammy winner also opened up about life in self-isolation amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and said that she’s grateful for the opportunity to reflect and feel grateful.

“I feel like I’m doing well. I feel bad because there’s so many people who weren’t prepared for this. I think that’s been the hardest part for me, is emotionally being tapped in and being so empathetic and feeling for people,” the 31-year-old explained. “There’s a lot of people right now who are going through it and my little problems ain’t nothing compared to theirs.”

And the Juice singer is relieved to be taking a break from her fast-paced schedule.

“I think it’s cool that we get the opportunity to turn off. My dream is to just take off my nails, not wear make-up and just grow my ‘fro out and walk around naked in my own garden,” she added.

Ariana Grande used her time during self-isolation to reveal her natural curly locks on social media.

The No Tears to Cry hitmaker is famous for her trademark high ponytail, and if it isn’t slicked back on the top of her head, her waist-length brunette hair is usually styled poker straight.

However, as the Grammy winner stays at home amid the coronavirus lockdown, she took to Twitter and Instagram to wow fans with her real dark curls, which can be seen tumbling around her face and shoulders in the smouldering picture.

“Get a load a dis (sic),” Ariana captioned the snap.

Her curly locks are reminiscent of old childhood photos Ariana has previously shared with her fans, and her mother Joan chimed in with a sweet note of support for her daughter.

“Beyond stunning. Your natural hair/curls is a world of its own… a magnificent beauty you are inside and out/made up or natural … I love you…” she commented.

More than five million followers liked Ariana’s post on Instagram, and the Thank U, Next hitmaker’s famous friends showed their adoration for the singer’s natural hair.

“Here for this covid curl,” Katy Perry wrote, while Lil Nas X commented: “Beautiful.”

Jessie J and Zoey Deutch were also among the celebrities sharing the love on Ariana’s post, as well as designer Zac Posen and Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott, who wrote: “BEEEEEAAUUTY.”

Ariana previously removed her signature ponytail and showed off her long straight locks for the covers of U.S. Elle and British Vogue magazines back in 2018.

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.
