Kacey Musgraves has created a candle inspired by her 2018 song Slow Burn.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the country music star announced that she had teamed with bosses at Los Angeles-based brand Boy Smells on a candle called Slow Burn – with the name taken from the opening track of her Grammy Award-winning album, Golden Hour.

“I brought my song Slow Burn to life in the form of a smell. The scentiment (sic) is exactly what the song sounds like. It’s a little dank. A little crisp. Androgynous. Floaty. Earthy. Grounded,” she wrote alongside an image of the product. “It’s the smell of a fire faintly drifting on the breeze as you walk to your favourite bar down the street and cherish slow sips of your favourite wine. Briefly thinking about strangers on the other side of the globe in Beijing rushing into work but you’re right here, admiring the fading colours of the disappearing sunset and enjoying exactly where you are in all senses.”

According to a description on the Boy Smells website, the Slow Burn candle features notes of incense, black pepper, elemi, guaiac, raspberry, tonka, amber and smoked papyrus. It comes in a matte gradient glass tumbler with metallic label and is priced at $39 (£30).

And while the Slow Burn candle sold out within hours of going online, it is expected to be restocked shortly.

“This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells – a queer brand with Texas roots. Hope you love what we created. Burn in a hurry,” the 31-year-old added.

Kacey’s entry into the candle market comes after Gwyneth Paltrow hit headlines last month when she released a candle called This Smells Like My Vagina, which included notes of geranium and bergamot, on her Goop website.

Jennifer Aniston has revealed how she kept her stunning white silk vintage dress wrinkle-free on her way to the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The 50-year-old actress hit the red carpet at the star-studded ceremony on Sunday in a show-stopping John Galliano for Christian Dior gown, and has since confessed to her followers on Instagram that getting there without creasing the delicate silk was a challenge.

Jennifer shared a photo of herself laying down in the back of a car as she headed out to the SAG Awards, grinning to the camera and flashing a peace sign.

“No wrinkles… harder than it looks!” she joked, before posting another photo of her vintage dress draped over a bathtub, near her black stiletto sandals and her SAG Award, which she won for her role on The Morning Show, after the show.

“Somewhere between these two photos, my peers gave me a gift I will cherish and a night I will never forget,” she touchingly wrote.

Her famous friends were quick to heap praise on the star in the comments, with Gwyneth Paltrow writing: “So deserved.”

“So proud of you! And you’re gorgeous,” her longtime best friend and former Friends co-star Courteney Cox wrote, while Mindy Kaling asked: “How can you be so pretty sitting like this?”

Jennifer beat fellow nominees Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter, Jodie Comer, and Elisabeth Moss on Sunday to win Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role as Alex Levy in the Apple TV+ show.

“Oh my gosh, this is so unbelievable,” she said as she accepted the award, which marked her first win at the SAG Awards since 1996.

Gwyneth Paltrow has slammed those who have criticised her unique new candle.

The 47-year-old launched the $75 (£58) product, cheekily called This Smells Like My Vagina, on her Goop website earlier this month.

The candle, which features notes of geranium, bergamot, cedar, Damask rose and ambrette seed, has completely sold out online, and curious customers have signed up to a waiting list to be first in line to get their hands on one.

But while Gwyneth’s latest candle has been the subject of jokes and memes on social media, she has now fired back at critics of her new venture and insisted that she simply wants women to be empowered to talk about sex.

“You saw the vaginas? It’s on everyone’s mind,” she told the audience at the National Retail Federation’s Big Show, according to Footwear News. “It never ceases to amaze me the amount of outrage that it will inspire in people on just women wanting to talk about their sexuality on any level.”

However, Oscar-winning star Gwyneth is happy to take the criticism, so long as she’s still able to make her voice heard.

“I would like to help dispel this idea that women should be kept down or can’t talk about what they want to, what they desire, and that women can be… intelligent and maternal and powerful and sexual all at the same time because we are.

“That I like. I don’t mind being punk rock in that way,” the mother-of-two laughed.

Zendaya stole the spotlight in a hot pink breastplate and matching skirt by Tom Ford at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old, who was nominated in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category for her role as Rue in the HBO drama Euphoria, stunned as she hit the red carpet wearing the $15,000 (£11,500) bespoke piece from the designer’s spring 2020 collection.

Zendaya complemented the unique creation with a floor-length fuchsia skirt, Mateo New York earrings, Djula rings, and satin pumps by Christian Louboutin. Her stylist, Law Roach, later pointed out that the breastplate was a homage to the vintage pieces by Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent, and called the Spider-Man: Far From Home star a “Warrior Woman” in a post on Instagram.

The piece was also recently worn by Gwyneth Paltrow for the cover of the latest issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and the Oscar winner took to social media to lavish praise on the young star.

“Thank God I can say I have something in common with Zendaya,” she commented on a picture of the actress wearing the breastplate.

Other famous faces who also rocked bright colours on the red carpet included Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein, who wore a two-tone pastel pink and red dress with open-toe velvet Jimmy Choo platform heels.

Kristen Bell made a bold statement with her neon green caped jumpsuit by Cong Tri, paired with matching heels, while Awkwafina wowed in a bright yellow Ellie Saab gown, which featured a flowing skirt and sleeves, and Stuart Weitzman platform shoes.

Renee Zellweger, who scooped the Best Actress prize at the ceremony for her role in Judy, bucked the colourful trend by wearing a black strapless Dior gown, and Best Actress in a Comedy Series winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge rocked a one-shouldered sheer dress also created by designers at the French fashion house.

Little Women star Florence Pugh was among those who embraced show-stopping glittering gowns for the annual ceremony, wearing a silver sequinned column-style dress by Prada, while Jennifer Lopez opted for an elegant cream cut-out gown with embellishment by Georges Hobeika.

Zendaya had her breasts moulded for the stunning Tom Ford creation she wore to the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards.

The 23-year-old donned the $15,000 (£11,500) hot pink metallic breastplate from the designer’s spring 2020 collection for the ceremony on Sunday, and finished off the show-stopping look with a fuchsia skirt and her hair styled into waist-length braids.

The look caught the attention of her fans on social media, with one curious follower on Twitter quizzing the Euphoria star on how the bespoke piece was created.

“Did they mould that to your t**tles… asking for a friend,” the cheeky post read, with Zendaya quickly replying, “Yes. Lol.”

Her stylist, Law Roach, later pointed out the breastplate was a homage to the vintage pieces by Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent, and shared a picture of his client rocking the red carpet.

“Warrior Woman… wearing @tomford,” Law captioned the snap, prompting his celebrity friends to heap praise on Zendaya’s look.

“Jesus Christ,” Ariana Grande commented. “Incredible Law.”

Tracee Ellis Ross simply left a series of fire emojis, while singer Jessie J, model Alton Mason, and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage also showed their love for the unique outfit.

The Tom Ford piece was recently worn by Gwyneth Paltrow for the cover of the latest issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and the Oscar winner took to social media to gush over her Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star too.

“Thank God I can say I have something in common with Zendaya,” she commented on a picture of the actress wearing the breastplate.

Gwyneth Paltrow became “really skinny” after she split from Brad Pitt in the 1990s.

To accompany her new cover interview for Harper’s Bazaar, the Avengers actress filmed a video in which she looked through her past covers for the magazine, and while holding a copy of the December 1997 issue, Gwyneth remarked that she became very thin after calling off her engagement to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star earlier that year because she wasn’t eating.

“This one, I was only about 24 or 25,” she said of the cover photo. “Brad Pitt and I had just broken up and I had breakup… couldn’t not eat (sic). I was really skinny, it was sort of upsetting. But it’s a nice picture.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the 47-year-old revealed that she is still good friends with the actor and loves seeing Instagram posts that pay homage to their ’90s style.

In the video, Gwyneth also shared that she didn’t like her “terrible” May 2010 cover of the publication because she looked “really cheesy”, and wasn’t a fan of her November 2016 cover, in which she wore a lacy masquerade-style mask with matching top.

“I don’t like this one either. I don’t think it’s a good photo,” the star candidly stated.

However, Gwyneth’s favourite cover was for the March 2012 issue, in which she wore a black dress with revealing leg split and turned her face away from the camera.

“This was a good one, this is my iconic Bazaar cover guys,” she gushed. “I love how you can’t see my face, it’s very cool, this was a fun one. I liked this shoot a lot. This is one of my favourite shoots of all time. I loved this one, this is great.”

Gwyneth Paltrow can’t get enough of peanut butter protein bars

Gwyneth Paltrow always keeps her fridge stocked with peanut butter protein bars.

The actress and Goop entrepreneur has built up a reputation for her super healthy lifestyle in recent years, and has tried just about every food trend going, whether it be juice cleanses or low-carb diets.

Now, Gwyneth has opened up about her eating habits in a video for Harper’s Bazaar and explained that her go-to snack is a protein bar.

“If I’m in a rush, I’ll eat these delicious peanut butter protein bars,” she commented. “I can’t remember the name of them but you have to keep them in the refrigerator. I eat them all the time!”

Gwyneth went on to explain that she usually skips breakfast but will have a nutrient-packed smoothie after she hits the gym. She likes salads for lunch and keeps her energy up between meals by munching on cashews and pretzels, but there are a few foods she won’t eat.

“I’ve pretty much become more of an omnivore. There’s just a few things I won’t eat. I don’t like dill. I can’t stand dill. I don’t like to eat baby mammals, so I stay away from lamb and veal. I don’t eat octopus ’cause they’re super smart,” the 47-year-old explained.

As for dinner, the Oscar winner prefers to eat at home with her two children.

“I like to eat dinner on the early side. I always feel I don’t sleep very well if I go to sleep very full. I’ve gotten real geriatric about that – 6pm – 6.30pm (is) dinnertime. It feels good! I’ve been trying not to drink so much on weeknights because it’s such an easy habit to fall into… I usually have a Gibson – that’s kind of my new thing – it’s like a martini but with the cocktail onion. It’s very my father. Or I’ll have whiskey on the rocks… basically, I’m turning into an old Jewish man,” she joked.

Naomi Watts developed rosacea while working on TV show Gypsy

Naomi Watts was left feeling “miserable” after developing chronic skin condition rosacea while working on her Netflix series Gypsy.

The 51-year-old actress told Britain’s The Sunday Times Style magazine that applying make-up “two to three times” a day and “spending hours under hot lights” while working on the show led to her contracting the condition, which results in redness, pimples, swelling, and small and superficial dilated blood vessels on the face.

“A few years back in 2016, while I was working 16-hour days on Gypsy, I was having to apply make-up two to three times a day and spend hours under hot lights,” she said. “I was really suffering from rosacea. It was making my life miserable. My skin was just saying leave me alone.”

The King Kong actress explained her struggles inspired her to become the latest celebrity to tap into the ever-growing “clean beauty” market, as she launched Onda – a range of natural, organic products that she co-founded with former Conde Nast fashion market director Larissa Thomson and former magazine editor Sarah Bryden-Brown.

Explaining she wanted to start the brand after she “eliminated chemically driven products from my beauty regime”, the new collection has gained a cult following, and Naomi revealed fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who founded lifestyle brand Goop, has been “very supportive” of the venture.

Elsewhere in the interview, the mother-of-two insisted she was dedicated to “supporting” women going through the menopause and has slammed the stigma surrounding it.

“Menopause should not be a dirty word. It’s such a shame society has made it so,” she fired. “We need support from each other, and to not be made to feel like unsexy, infertile, crabby old ladies that should be sent out to pasture.”

Gwyneth Paltrow has dropped a rather risque holiday commercial for her lifestyle brand Goop.

In the 90-second advertisement titled The Joy of Getting Ready, the actress/entrepreneur is seen modelling the latest items from her G. Label fashion collection as she prepares for the season’s holiday parties at home.

“First, put on a record to set the mood. Oh, yeah,” the narrator says, as the camera cuts to Gwyneth making two martinis in her kitchen: “Do everything in slow motion. Make this feeling last.

“Find your favourite look or 11 of them. Look fabulous in each one. And get super high… in your heels, of course.”

Later on, Gwyneth is shown whipping up two martinis in the kitchen before carrying them to her living room, with the voiceover commenting, “Someone’s double fisting and dammit, she’s earned it.”

The 47-year-old, who is married to TV producer Brad Falchuk, is then featured filling stockings above the fireplace, before deciding to keep one naughty gift to herself.

“Do something for others, but don’t forget about number one…,” advises the narrator, before confirming, “Yes, that is a vibrator”, as Gwyneth cheekily smirks and walks away with the sex toy.

The new Goop commercial isn’t the first time the Oscar winner has candidly shared sex tips with fans. She previously promoted the sale of a $495 (£380) vibrator for “vaginal toning” on her website, as well as the use of jade eggs, which are inserted into the vagina for sexual health – a practice doctors have strongly advised against.

Jennifer Aniston has no qualms about getting older.

The Morning Show star reached the milestone in February and celebrated with a star-studded bash in Los Angeles that included the likes of George and Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ellen DeGeneres, Barbra Streisand, and Laura Dern.

Now, Jennifer – who was recently named as one of People magazine’s People of the Year, told the publication that she has no anxiety over the ageing process.

“(I don’t) feel 50,” she shared. “I don’t know what that’s supposed to feel like or look like. I know what society has painted it as and what narrative we put around it but none of that applies to myself in terms of how I feel about it.”

Jennifer went on to explain that she thinks of birthdays – whatever the age – as markers of good health. Accordingly, this is part of the reason why she wanted to have a big blowout for her 50th.

“Well, I love a big ol’ celebration and I thought what’s the alternative? Look, the alternative to not being 50 is because you’re not here anymore!” the star laughed. “And thank God. I think of all the people that we’ve lost before the age of 50 or at the age of 50. And also, I think we’re living longer now.”

As for what this past year has taught her, the Friends actress confessed she feels much more capable as she enters the next decade of her life.

“The words ‘I dare you’ or ‘no’ always make me kind of go, ‘Oh, okay. Well, let’s just see,'” she said.
