Ariel Winter has wowed fans with her new platinum hair colour.

The Modern Family star took to social media to show off her new ‘do, which she jokingly claimed was inspired by Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen from the hit HBO show, Game of Thrones.

“Winter Is Coming!!!!!!!!!!!” she wrote, borrowing a GOT phrase, on Instagram, alongside several snaps of her lounging outside in her garden, wearing a cute floral printed vest top and stonewashed jeans.

Ariel’s boyfriend Luke Benward acknowledged the 22-year-old’s inspiration by simply writing “Targaryen” in the comments, as her fans went wild over the transformation.

“Marilyn Monroe vibes,” wrote one, while another commented: “my favorite color on you ever.”

Back in February, Ariel debuted a strawberry blonde hair colour on social media, after months of slowly transitioning from dark brown to a shade closer to her natural shade.

“Bye bye dark hair 🙂 I don’t think I’ll miss you :))),” she wrote at the time.

Ariel has played Alex Dunphy on the hit U.S. sitcom Modern Family since 2009, and had to undergo extensive colouring for more than a decade to ensure her locks stayed dark brown.

But when she filmed her final scenes as the middle Dunphy child back in February, she made a vow to avoid brunette hair for a long time.

“I said to myself, ‘As soon as the show is over, I’m not going to have dark hair again unless somebody pays me to have dark hair again,’” she told StyleCaster earlier this year.

Gigi Hadid managed to hide her baby bump in the first few months of her pregnancy by wearing baggy jumpsuits.

Back in April, the 25-year-old model confirmed she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, and during a recent Instagram Live, Gigi shared her secret to keeping her baby news private for over five months.

“How do you not have a tummy?? I’m 4 months into my pregnancy and my tummy is huge you look great tho!” a fan asked the model, prompting Gigi to divulge her top tip.

“This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion,” she wrote, alongside a laughing face emoji. “From the side it’s a different story! haha – wishing u the best! x.”

Rumours began to swirl about Gigi’s pregnancy when she shared images from her 25th birthday party on Instagram in April, and eagle-eyed fans spotted gift bags and decorations that suggested the bash was in fact a gender reveal party.

She confirmed the exciting news during an interview with Jimmy Fallon, and expressed her regret that she and singer Zayn weren’t able to announce the baby news themselves.

“Obviously, we wish they could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support,” she said.

Gigi and Pillow Talk hitmaker Zayn reconciled late last year, and confirmed they were back together in February.

Tory Burch is spearheading a social media campaign to encourage people to wear face masks during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 54-year-old American designer and philanthropist took to Instagram to launch the #WearADamnMask initiative, and asked her famous friends to help her ensure the campaign goes viral.

“I am sure you are all seeing what I am seeing. Covid-19 rates in the U.S. are rising at a truly scary rate. One thing I know for sure is that there’s a very easy way each of us can help, and that’s to #WearADamnMask whenever we are in public,” Tory captioned a selfie, in which she can be seen wearing a white mask covered with an intricate black design.

“#WearaDamnMask because we want to protect ourselves and, even more importantly, we want to protect others,” she added. “#WearaDamnMask because clearly, the doctors and data say we are not going to beat this pandemic unless we each do our part to get rid of it.

“#WearaDamnMask because is it not a political issue, it is an issue of saving lives. #WearaDamnMask because it is the only way to keep our most vulnerable safe and the only way to get our economy back on track.”

She invited every one of her 2.4 million followers to help her spread the word, and urged them to share their mask selfies.

“Trust me, it takes a lot for me to post a selfie, this is urgent!” she quipped. “We are all in this together.”

Tory challenged her famous friends, such as Kerry Washington and Mindy Kaling, to join her in getting the message out, and so far, celebrities including Tracee Ellis Ross, Marisa Tomei and fellow designer Diane von Furstenberg have participated.

In the U.S. alone, there have been more than 2.7 million cases of Covid-19, and over 130,000 deaths.

Kim Kardashian’s new red hair is completely real says her hairstylist Chris Appleton.

The KKW Beauty mogul took to social media on Monday to debut the fiery colour transformation in a series of videos and selfies on Instagram Stories.

Many fans assumed the reality star, who has previously overhauled her looks with wigs, didn’t really dye her brunette locks a deep shade of red, but Chris defended his client and long-time friend by setting the record straight.

“Red head,” he captioned two video clips of Kim with her new red hue. “It’s NOT a wig before you start with that s**t.”

Chris later told People magazine that he and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star have been discussing changing her hair colour while in lockdown amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Kim is a trendsetter and not afraid of doing something new. We have done the blonde and the pink before and red was unexpected. I love that about Kim,” he explained, noting that they were inspired by the red wig Kim wore during a promo shoot for her Sooo Fire KKW Beauty collection last year.

“We felt a red vibe. I worked with Kim’s skin tone to create red that suits her and that’s why I left the darker root,” he shared, adding that he decided to leave her roots dark to keep her locks healthy. “We left the roots her normal shade to keep the scalp and hair growth strong.”

It wasn’t a quick transformation for the mother-of-four to take on, but Chris said that Kim had been meticulously taking care of her hair to make the colour change much easier.

“It’s a very lengthy process but Kim takes such good care of her hair that it stands up to the challenge,” he added.

Diane Keaton took a trip down memory lane as she revisited some of her favourite looks from her wardrobe archive.

The Oscar-winning actress posted a video on Instagram, showing her style evolution over the years as she shared her top outfit ensembles with her followers.

Wearing a white shirt tucked into a pair of high-waisted, wide-leg jeans, Diane began the clip by explaining her love for quirky fashion.

“Even when I was young, I was way into fashion. My mom and I used to pick out patterns, and then I’d tell her what I wanted, and she’d do it for me,” she explained, adding that she still cuts out images from magazines to use as future fashion inspiration.

Highlights from the 74-year-old’s archive included a chic white fitted suit, that she said she “might have worn it to some sort of awards show”, as she flashed an image of herself wearing it at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014 as she locked lips with Morgan Freeman.

“He had to kiss me in that outfit,” she quipped.

She then shared a picture of herself wearing a Thom Browne checked suit, which she decided to accessorise. “I decided to put a skirt over (the pants), because I’m insane,” Diane laughed.

Her famous followers, including Sarah Paulson and Lisa Rinna were quick to comment on The Godfather star’s post, with Jennifer Aniston writing: “You’re everything perfect!!”

Britney Spears has wowed her fans by wearing a bargain black dress from Pretty Little Thing.

The Toxic hitmaker took to Instagram to share a video message to the LGBTQ community to celebrate Pride Month, and her eagle-eyed followers noticed that she was rocking a long-sleeved, black frilly minidress from the online retailer, which cost a mere $35 (£28).

“Happy Pride Month !!!! I love my LGBTQ+ fans so much …. you all bring me so much joy and I am proud to support you !!!!” Britney captioned the clip, alongside rainbow and love heart emojis.

Her fans were quick to heap praise on the frugal pop star, who is reportedly worth around $58 million (£47 million), for choosing affordable high street clothes over designer garments.

“Britney Spears being a millionaire and shopping at pretty little thing just like we all do. Iconic,” one commented, while another wrote: “Humble queen.”

However, some of her 24.5 million followers have been poking fun at the unusual language Britney used in the video, in particular, when she described the LGBTQ community as if it was a place, not a group of people.

“‘To all my friends at the LGBTQ community, happy Pride Month,” the 38-year-old said in the Instagram clip. “You guys bring so much heart, passion, and articulate everything you do. Because of you, I’ve had the best nights of my life. I love you so much it hurts.”

“The way Britney said “at the LGBTQ Community” like we all live in a retirement home together,” one joked, as another chimed in: “‘She said AT the lgbt community like we all live in a clubhouse.”

Iskra Lawrence has revealed she almost “tapped out” while giving birth to her son.

The 29-year-old model discussed her experience of welcoming her first child with boyfriend Philip Payne in a video on her YouTube channel, and admitted that her at-home water birth wasn’t what she expected, and she was surprised to find that she hit her pain threshold while having contractions.

“I nearly tapped out… I just had no idea how bad the contractions were,” she shared. “The contractions were worse in a way because they felt never-ending. It was constant… It was 12 hours essentially of contractions where you’re just in searing pain for two minutes and might have a couple of seconds and then it goes again… I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t eat, I was throwing up, I had shivers and chills…”

She also shared some details about what happens after giving birth.

“They have to push on your stomach to get the excess blood out (after the birth),” she explained. “After you’ve just gone through all of that, then five times both the midwives are pressing down on my stomach and this blood was just gushing out… (But) it’s not the focus. Anything could have been happening and you don’t care, you’re just like, ‘Wow’.”

The model also posted candid images on Instagram of herself and Philip on the day of the birth, including a shot of her in an inflatable pool inside her home.

“I’m excited to finally share the best day of our lives and our greatest achievement,” she captioned the slideshow. “I wasn’t sure how much I’d want to share, and I actually wasn’t even aware how much footage and pics my family got as I was 1. Locked in trying to push 2. So excited to meet bubba and 3. In the most intense pain of my entire life.”

Iskra and Philip welcomed their child in April. She previously revealed her newborn had to be resuscitated after a difficult labour.

Ashley Graham was overjoyed to be chosen by Christy Turlington for the Harper’s Bazaar Voices of Hope issue.

The model, 32, features on one of six covers for the issue, which brings together several powerful women in the U.S. discussing racial injustice and the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Ashley stunned in a one-shouldered Proenza Schouler knitted bandage maxi dress, from the designer’s fall/winter show last year, with a signature cut out at the waist, and complemented by a statement gold choker.

The Sports Illustrated star also shared a behind-the-scenes snap of her photoshoot onto Instagram, which was shot over video call app Zoom by photographer Mario Sorrenti.

In the snap, Ashley’s husband Justin Ervin can be seen holding a phone while carrying their five-month-old son Isaac in a front-facing baby carrier, as the model posed on a stairwell.

“Thank you @cturlington for including me alongside this group of incredible women. There are so many reasons I look up to you,” she wrote in the caption. “Your fight for the health and well-being of mothers and children everywhere never stops inspiring me… It has been a trying time for everyone, but my faith in these women and everyone else who is fighting for change is what gives me hope for the future.”

Ashley features in the issue alongside fellow model Christy; chairwoman of New York’s Covid-19 Maternity Task Force Melissa DeRosa; six-time Olympic gold medal-winning runner Allyson Felix; U.S. Representative Lauren Underwood; and public health expert Dr. Leana Wen.

Post Malone surprised fans with an impressive skull tattoo on the side of his newly-shaved head.

The 24-year-old added to his ever-increasing collection of face tattoos with a large skeleton design, outlined in black ink, that covered half of his head.

“I have cut my hair even shorter, also skeletons are cool,” Malone captioned the snap on Instagram, and he added a positive message of encouragement to his 21.9 million followers.

“Spread your heart as much as you can. A little love goes farther than you think. Stay strong, and keep kicking a*s.”

Earlier this year, the Sunflower hitmaker discussed his face tattoos, and candidly confessed that he was prone to ink his face due to his insecurities.

“I’m a ugly-a*s motherf**ker,” Malone told GQ Style. “(The face tattoos do) maybe come from a place of insecurity, to where I don’t like how I look, so I’m going to put something cool on there so I can look at myself and say, ‘You look cool, kid,’ and have a modicum of self-confidence, when it comes to my appearance.”

He also shared his dream of having a sword tattooed on his face with the publication, and thinks the unusual ink makes him “more interesting”.

“I feel like the face tattoos make me interesting to look at, so where I might lack in handsomeness, I make up in intrigue at least,” he mused.
