Celebrities including Reese Witherspoon, Cardi B, and Zendaya have been gifted Beyonce’s upcoming Adidas x IVY PARK collection.

The superstar originally launched the athleisure company in 2016 with Topshop tycoon Philip Green, but after buying his shares to assume full ownership of the brand, Beyonce revealed in April she was partnering with Adidas bosses to release the new Ivy Park, which is due for release on Saturday.

To promote the line in the run-up to the launch, the Formation hitmaker decided to send the entire unisex collection, contained in a big orange box on wheels, to a bunch of celebrities, who took to social media to gush about their coveted gift.

The Legally Blonde star shared a video on Instagram of her mother wheeling the orange box up her driveway before the pair unclipped the front. The footage then turned into a montage of Reese stepping out of the box and posing or dancing in a variety of Ivy Park ensembles, such as the purple jumpsuit, the purple form-fitting dress, sneakers, and a beanie hat.

“Does this officially make me the newest member of the #Beyhive?” she wrote in the caption. “Thank you, @Beyonce for the #IvyPark swag!”

Cardi also posted a video of her standing in front of the orange box before filming herself sifting through items on the rail.

“So, I just got home and look what I got. B**ch Beyonce done give me a closet… I gotta open it,” she can be heard saying.

Zendaya simply shared a picture of her posing in front of the orange box on her Instagram Stories and thanked Beyonce in the caption, while model Hailey Bieber shared a video of her going through the rail and called it “the coolest thing I’ve ever been sent”. She was photographed wearing the purple crop top and matching tracksuit bottoms while she visited a dance studio on Wednesday.

Actresses including Laverne Cox, Yara Shahidi, and Issa Rae were also sent the surprise gift.

Hailey Bieber slams trolls for ‘downplaying’ husband Justin’s Lyme disease diagnosis

Hailey Bieber has slammed trolls for “downplaying the severity of Lyme disease” after her husband Justin Bieber came forward with his diagnosis on Wednesday.

The Yummy star revealed in a post on Instagram that he is suffering from the tick-borne illness – which can cause rashes, extreme fatigue, headaches, and fevers – as well as mono, a viral infection also known as glandular fever.

While the majority of fans sent the 25-year-old singer love and well wishes, there were some who were dubious about Justin’s announcement – leading his model wife Hailey to come to his defence.

“For those who are trying to downplay the severity of Lyme disease. Please do your research and listen to the stories of people who have suffered with it for years,” Hailey tweeted. “Making fun of and belittling a disease you don’t understand is never the way, all it takes is educating yourself.”

The 23-year-old went on to thank her model friends Gigi and Bella Hadid, and their mother Yolanda, for supporting both her and Justin throughout his diagnosis. Yolanda, Bella and Anwar Hadid all suffer from the disease.

“I wanna say a huge thank you to @YolandaHadid and @bellahadid and @GiGiHadid for bringing me so much clarity and information on Lyme disease and for helping answer my questions about course of action, symptoms etc. Love you 3 amazing women!” she wrote.

“Our pleasure, wishing the fastest possible recovery,” Gigi replied.

Hailey also thanked Avril Lavigne for raising awareness of Lyme disease, which the Complicated singer also suffers from.

It’s not clear how Justin contracted the disease but fans are expected to learn all about his struggles when his new documentary Seasons premieres on YouTube on 27 January.

Hailey Bieber is tired of being “torn apart” by trolls online.

The model, who is married to pop star Justin Bieber, took to Instagram on Friday to share a candid post with fans in which she called social media a “breeding ground for cruelty towards each other”.

“And because people don’t take the time to connect with each other on an honest level before they resort to hatred, it starts to damage what could be really beautiful human interaction and connection,” she reflected. “I could sit here all day and say the hate doesn’t bug me, that the words that are said don’t affect me. But NEWS FLASH: it hurts to be torn apart on the internet!!!”

Hailey, 23, continued to confess that she takes the comments so personally and gets “hurt very easily” because she’s so passionate about connecting with others and feels “very deeply”.

“I absolutely love connecting with other people. I love finding common interests between me and others, hearing people’s story, I love laughing with others, and I love crying with others. I feel so very very deeply,” she continued. “I do my best to expose my heart which means I love freely and I empathise deeply, and because of that I also hurt very easily when I feel like people don’t see my heart and see me for who I am and the reason I’m even sharing this.”

Hailey shared the post on the same day Justin dropped his latest track Yummy – a sensual account of the couple’s intimate relationship.

Hailey Bieber has dedicated a sweet New Year’s Eve Instagram post to her husband Justin, as she looked forward to the couple’s future together.

The 23-year-old model and the I Don’t Care hitmaker, 25, first dated back in 2016, and rekindled their romance in 2018, before getting married later that year.

Taking to the social networking site with a series of sweet snaps of the pair, the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin penned: “Please be my New Years kiss even when I’m 80!!!”

Sorry singer Justin also shared the same photos, along with the hashtags “#2020 #yummy #jesusisking”.

Later in the evening, Hailey also gushed over her man in her Instagram Stories, as she looked forward to the next decade of their romance.

“We have brought in the new year together 4 times now, each year came with its own story, it’s own ups and downs that ultimately led us here,” she wrote. “We have experienced a lot together, we have seen each other through different phases of life, and watched each other grow into who we are now.”

Hailey added: “I am so grateful to God that we are HERE.. and I can’t wait to ride out this decade with you and the next one…”

Justin kicked off 2020 with a bang by dropping his new single Yummy from his highly anticipated fifth studio album on Friday.

Hailey Bieber takes pride in her ability to give great Christmas gifts.

The model plans to spend the festive season with husband Justin Bieber and their three dogs in his native Canada and relax in their most comfortable pyjamas on Christmas Day itself.

But when it comes to giving presents, Hailey is convinced that she’s number one in her household.

“I definitely pride myself on my gift giving,” she laughed to Vogue.com. “I enjoy giving people gifts. I don’t love receiving them if I’m honest – it makes me feel awkward.”

Despite not wanting anything for herself this year, Hailey is keen to make sure that helping others – especially women – is at the top of her to-do list in the New Year.

“The biggest goal for me for 2020 is to get more involved in things that make a difference. There’s so much going on in the world,” the 23-year-old explained. “I would love to get involved in as much as I can and lend my voice to as much as I can, and I would love to speak on more things and talk to young women and encourage people to continue making a difference.”

Wanting to use her fame and voice to instigate change in the year ahead, Hailey said she is determined to empower other women and be a positive force for change in 2020.

“I’m passionate about women taking care of women. We’ve come a long way already, especially in terms of women’s employment and women having each other’s backs. But I think we can do better – especially when it comes to educating younger women and the younger generation,” she stated. “I think we all just need to be a lot nicer.”

Hailey Bieber dislikes how social media is pitting women against each other and creating “toxic narratives”.

The model is no stranger to finding herself at the centre of headlines alleging she is at war with other famous women, such as her husband Justin Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez.

And in a new interview with British Vogue, Hailey insisted she wants to see changes made to sites such as Instagram and Twitter, to stop the negativity from affecting people’s lives.

“I think social media is a breeding ground for toxicity and people creating false drama between women and trying to put women up against each other and create these narratives that are just… toxic,” she commented. “I think that has to change and that has to stop.

“I think there needs to be more people with platforms coming together and saying to each other, ‘Let’s kill the conversation, let’s kill the fake drama, let’s squash all these things, let’s move on from stuff. Let’s not give people a reason to fuel fire and create drama and being rude to each other.'”

Elsewhere in the interview, Hailey discussed her recent second wedding ceremony with the Sorry hitmaker, calling it the “highlight of my year”.

“I honestly just felt so happy; I was so content. There’s nothing like marrying the love of your life. It’s an indescribable feeling,” the 23-year-old sweetly shared.

The pair have yet to head off on an official honeymoon, but Hailey said their frequent travelling means they’re almost enjoying a constant post-wedding celebration.

“I think we travel enough where it’s kind of a honeymoon all of the time,” she smiled. “Just being with each other, just getting to spend time alone can feel like that. We love to do little trips, we love to go away for the night or the weekend. I love to travel.”

Halsey: ‘I’ve waited my entire life to feel good about my appearance in photos’

Halsey has waited her entire life to look at pictures of herself and feel good about her appearance in them.

The Without Me singer, who is known for experimenting with bold make-up, hair colours, and wigs, has gone back to basics for her cover shoot for the December issue of Elle Australia magazine.

In the cover image, the 25-year-old wears a blue satin bralette and matching trousers from Louis Vuitton, minimal make-up, and shows off her natural dark, cropped hair.

In the accompanying interview, Halsey admitted it was rare for her to be happy with how she looks in images taken at photoshoots.

“I feel very lucky to be able to look at those photos and feel good about myself,” she said. “I’ve waited for that moment my entire life and there I am, with the hair that my mother and father gave me and with (minimal) make-up on, in a way I’m proud of. To be cool with the world seeing me that way… that says a lot to me about how I’ve grown as a person. I feel really happy and peaceful.”

In other images, the American singer gazes into the camera while wearing a sheer pink bodysuit, crouches down in heels while wearing a black bodysuit and a black jacket with white polka dots, and runs her hands through her hair as she sports a blue jacket covered in embroidery and sequins. In all of the snaps, her hair is kept simple and natural and her make-up is kept to a minimum so her freckles can be seen.

Sharing the pictures on her Instagram page, Halsey gushed over photographer Kai Z Feng by writing, “Thank you @elleaus shot beautifully by @kaizfeng.”

She received praise from Hailey Bieber in the comments, with the model posting, “This glam is gorgeous”, as well as from Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui, who simply wrote, “Wow.”

Justin Bieber has turned his deodorant launch into a family affair by roping his wife Hailey into the campaign.

The Love Yourself singer dropped his new Schmidt’s collaboration, Here + Now, on Wednesday, and he appears in the first video advertisement along with his model wife, who makes a cameo, planting a kiss on her man’s cheek.

Justin helped design the packaging for the gender-neutral, baking soda-free deodorant, which features buzz words like “Be Kind”, “Stress Less”, and “Hug More”.

“Here + Now is all about living in this moment we’ve been given and making the most of it,” the 25-year-old said. “I try to share that message through my music, my lifestyle and through the partners I choose to collaborate with. Schmidt’s is a great brand whose products promote natural self-care, which is something I really believe in: take care of yourself, live your best life, and always be Here + Now.”

Here+Now is plant-based, certified vegan and cruelty-free. It is available to buy at select retailers across the U.S. and Canada.

“At Schmidt’s, we believe in the power of self-care, and each and every one of our products is crafted based on that passion, including Here+Now,” added Ryu Yokoi, chief executive officer of Schmidt’s Naturals. “We’re thrilled to introduce a natural deodorant that is not only effective, but also serves as a call to mindfulness and living in the moment. As a co-creator, Justin has been integral in the development of Here+Now by bringing his own personal journey with self-care to the table.”

The new product and ad come a month after Justin and Hailey, 22, teamed up for a new Calvin Klein underwear commercial.

The couple, who wed last year and remarried during a ceremony in South Carolina in September, agreed to strip down to help company bosses celebrate their CK50 collection, marking 50 years of the brand.

Off-White tops The Lyst Index’s rankings of hottest brands

Off-White has been crowned as the hottest brand in the world in The Lyst Index’s latest rankings.

The label, founded by designer Virgil Abloh in 2012, is known for its stylised streetwear-inspired items which feature the use of quotation marks, zip ties, and industrial buckles, with celebrity fans including Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna.

Now, researchers have compiled data from the fashion platform Lyst for the third quarter of 2019 and claimed Off-White has come out on top in relation to global Lyst and Google search data, conversion rates and sales, as well as brand and product social media mentions and engagement statistics worldwide.

Balenciaga, helmed by creative director Demna Gvasalia, was the runner-up, while Gucci fell back two spots in comparison to last quarter and landed in third place.

Other luxury brands in the top 10 included Versace, Prada, Valentino, Fendi, Burberry, Saint Laurent, and Vetements, while notable additions to the top 20 this quarter were Bottega Veneta and Loewe.

Since Daniel Lee joined Bottega Veneta in June 2018, the Italian fashion house has undergone a huge revamp, with the designer winning acclaim for his minimalist designs and Stretch sandals, which immediately sold out upon release following the launch of the label’s pre-fall 2019 collection.

“Daniel Lee has brought incredible energy to the evolution of Bottega Veneta and the reaction has been extraordinary,” Dario Gargiulo, chief marketing officer of Bottega Veneta, said of the brand’s transformation. “Free from any desire to become the hottest brand in the world, our focus is on the beauty and power of subtlety. We forego extensive explanation about our brand in favour of simply being visible and present across the current multicultural landscape.”

Among the most popular products were Bottega Veneta’s padded sandals, Adidas Continental 80 sneakers, Jacquemus’ pocket-sized Le Chiquito bag, Paco Rabanne’s reissued 1969 metal shoulder bag, Fendi’s FF motif bikini, and Mansur Gavriel’s cloud print sweater.

Vera Wang approves of Hailey Bieber teaming wedding dress with sneakers

Vera Wang is happy Hailey Bieber wore sneakers with the dress she designed for her wedding reception.

The model walked down the aisle in an off-the-shoulder lace Off-White dress by Virgil Abloh when she got married to Justin Bieber for the second time in South Carolina on 30 September. She later changed into a simple white slip dress by Wang and sneakers to party with guests at the reception afterwards.

And the 70-year-old bridal designer has insisted she approved of Hailey mixing the high-end piece with sportswear.

“I relate to her because I think I’m a teenager,” Wang joked to People. “I’m just very happy that she wore it and she partied in it and she wore it with sneakers and that’s just my kind of deal. It couldn’t have been a better thing for us.

“I was very happy (to dress her) because I adore her style… To me, she’s like a dancer: she has a long neck and back. She wears clothes in her own way and adds her own style to it. And she’s cool.”

Wang previously told Vogue that she was pleased to be involved in the wedding because she has had a “soft spot” for the Baldwin family since she made the outfits when Bieber’s actor uncle Billy married Chynna Phillips in 1995.

“I did her aunt Chynna’s wedding when she married Billy Baldwin many years ago,” Wang recalled. “That’s how I knew them then… Hailey’s dad (Stephen) came to the fittings, and it was really lovely and nice to catch up. I have a soft spot for the Baldwin family, so to even play a small part in Hailey’s wedding felt like full circle for me and was so lovely.”

In addition to the Off-White and Vera Wang numbers, Bieber, 22, also wore a silky halter dress by Ralph & Russo, a Vivienne Westwood minidress, and a Celine leather jacket emblazoned with the word “Wife” in chrome studs during the wedding celebration.
