Shanina Shaik has finalised her divorce from DJ Ruckus.

The Australian model and American music star, real name Gregory Andrews, parted ways in June 2019 after one year of marriage, with Shaik filing for divorce a month later.

Now, according to legal papers obtained by TMZ, a Los Angeles judge has now signed off on their settlement, with Shaik and Ruckus to be legally separated on 23 January.

The 28-year-old cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce filing and requested spousal support. It’s not known whether her request was granted.

Meanwhile, Shaik took to Instagram in late November to share that she was dating again following her difficult split.

“Reflecting on this year… I will admit this was the hardest year of my life. I was dealing with the biggest heartache. So many things I wish I could share with all of you, but I choose to keep my personal stories close to my heart and heal. After dealing with a huge loss in my life, I GAVE UP ON LOVE (broken heart emoji). I didn’t want it or believed that a true love could exist,” she wrote alongside a black-and-white snap of her hand holding her new beau’s. “I was broken… You took me by surprise and made me believe that a BEAUTIFUL love exists! It’s kind, supporting, romantic and friendly. You’re my best friend! Throughout my heartache, you stood by me and I’m thankful for you. Thank you for making me believe in love again. I’m thankful I have you… to call you mine.”

Shaik did not name or tag her boyfriend in the message.

Pete Davidson has been tapped to appear in Alexander Wang’s latest marketing imagery.

The Saturday Night Live star walked the runway during the fashion designer’s spring 2020 show held at the Rockefeller Center plaza in New York City last May, where he joined the likes of professional models including Kendall Jenner, Binx Walton, and his rumoured girlfriend Kaia Gerber.

Now, Wang has teamed with Davidson once again, this time on a set of photos posted on Instagram. The picture shows the 26-year-old posing in two-tone jeans, a white tank top, and a black leather jacket while holding up a small motorcycle.

“Pete pulled up ’cause we signed the NDA,” a brand representative wrote in the caption, referencing reports circulating last month that Davidson makes fans sign a $1 million (£773,500) non-disclosure agreement before they’re welcomed into his shows.

It remains unclear whether the comedian’s photos are part of a wider campaign for the Alexander Wang brand or if they will only be shared on social media.

Meanwhile, Davidson has also taken part in a Q&A video with Wang for the label’s YouTube channel. When asked about his current state of mind, he explained that he found participating in a fashion photoshoot to be rather hilarious.

“I think it’s pretty funny that I’m doing this, that I’m a super-duper model,” said Davidson. “Anwar Hadid was unavailable, Jaden Smith was also not available, and Adam Devine is booked. So, Pete is here.”

Gemma Ward is pregnant with her third child.

The Australian model took to Instagram on Tuesday to post a photo of her showing off her growing baby bump while standing on the beach at Byron Bay.

“Expecting a baby girl this year to round out our little gang,” she wrote in the caption.

The infant will be a sibling for Gemma and her partner David Letts’s six-year-old daughter Naia and son Jet, three. The 32-year-old did not share any further details, such as her due date.

Accordingly, Gemma’s post quickly caught the attention of her celebrity friends, with Nicole Trunfio writing, “Yayyyyy!!!!!!!” alongside a string of emojis, and Georgia Fowler commenting, “Congratulations gorgeous! Keep cooking that bun.”

Jessica Gomes posted, “Wowwww omg (oh my God) amazing! Congrats!” while Teresa Palmer added: “YES Gems!!! How exciting!!”

Since becoming a parent, Gemma has taken a step back from the fashion world and become very selective about her modelling gigs. But after taking a break from the catwalk between 2008 and 2013, the blonde beauty noticed a major shift in attitudes among leaders in the industry compared to when she was starting out.

“There’s a lot more diversity – multiple generations, sizes, children, pregnant women – there is a lot more freedom and I think it’s just more interesting and more exciting for everyone involved,” she said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Australia in 2018. “It creates an environment which feels safer and less judgemental and more fun. That’s why I’m feeling it’s good for me.”

Christie Brinkley has championed body positivity by posting an old bikini photo on social media.

Since launching her career in the early 1970s, the supermodel has become one of the most sought-after names in the fashion industry, famously spending 25 years as the face of CoverGirl and appearing on three consecutive covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

In a new Instagram post, Christie reflected on her cover shoot for the June 1977 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, in which she posed in a purple bikini.

“This bathing suit caused a stir! At the time all the bikinis were low slung on the hip. This high leg cut made the hip a new erogenous zone. I couldn’t figure out how to put it on as just one string holds it all together!” she captioned the snap. “I remember I was worried that I looked fat. I’m so glad that today our industry appreciates all shapes and sizes so we can just focus on being healthy. Not cookie cutter. Still there is something in some young girls that often makes them feel they just don’t measure up. I was one of them. I look back at these and think that worry was such a waste of time.”

Christie went on to explain that she wishes the lessons she has learned over the years could be easily passed on and “absorbed” by the younger generation. But she is still pleased to see fashion industry leaders making progress when it comes to inclusivity and diversity.

“I do think shifting the focus to feeling great is a giant step in the right direction. Just thinking out loud as I sift thru a few photos (sic),” the 65-year-old commented.

Accordingly, a number of Christie’s celebrity pals quickly praised her honesty, with model Paulina Porizkova writing, “Perfectly put,” and actress Kate Hudson adding: “Holy purple goddess!!!!! Everything about this!”

Candice Swanepoel is “grateful” for the way social media has allowed her to connect with so many new people.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel took to Instagram on Monday to share a bare-faced selfie, and in the accompanying caption, insisted that she appreciates every single one of her 14 million followers.

“Thank you for sharing in so many of my happy moments and for supporting my career and the things I care about…” the 31-year-old wrote. “We can point out many negatives on the effect social media has on society and people’s psyche, but it also allows us to connect in ways that were not available before…”

Candice went on to explain that she has met some of her “favourite people” on Instagram and thanked those who shared “so much positivity on this platform”.

“Isn’t it a beautiful thing to build each other up and support each other, life can be complicated, and we are all fighting different battles, so I just wanted to express my gratitude for all the love shared here. Kindness is free,” she touchingly concluded.

The mother-of-two was inundated with love and support from her followers on the post, which has more than 395,000 likes, and fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge left a series of heart emojis in the comments, as did Amber Valletta.

“Beautiful inside and out, ily (I love you),” model Alton Mason gushed.

Lucky Blue Smith has sparked rumours he is set to marry girlfriend Nara Pellmann.

The American model, who has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Philipp Plein, took to Instagram last week to upload a snap of himself and Nara snuggling on a beach with a beautiful sunset in the background.

Model Nara can be seen holding her hand up to Lucky’s face, with what appears to be a stunning oval-shaped diamond ring on her ring finger.

“122919,” the 21-year-old captioned the image, indicating that the photo was taken at the end of December.

Accordingly, a number of Lucky’s three million followers soon began asking him to confirm if he was engaged.

“Is that an engagement ring ?????” one asked, while another joked: “I see that bling bling.”

A third added: “I couldn’t be happier for you guys. Tears. Everywhere.”

Despite the interest, neither Lucky nor Nara have yet comment on the speculation.

The Utah native previously dated model Stormi Bree, with the former couple welcoming a daughter named Gravity Blue Smith in July 2017.

The model has kept a relatively low profile on social media in recent months, but in October, he was forced to hit back at online critics who have accused him of spending little time with his daughter.

“Just because I don’t blast my daughter on social media to the world does NOT mean I’m not with her,” Lucky wrote. “Let’s get this straight so anyone who’s wondering or has ever wondered, I have 50 per cent legal AND physical custody of Gravity. When I travel for work, I make up the days that I have missed, as does her mother.”

He went on to note that social media platforms can be “extremely deceiving” and insisted that he won’t be posting pictures of his two-year-old any time soon.

Martha Hunt is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Jason McDonald.

The model revealed the news in a sweet post on Instagram on Wednesday, showcasing her stunning cushion cut diamond ring in a series of pictures, with one snapshot also including her husband-to-be.

“I have a secret…” the 30-year-old captioned the images.

Martha seemingly confirmed that Jason popped the question while the couple was holidaying in The Bahamas, as she tagged the photos’ location as being on the picturesque Caribbean island.

“Love you both so much,” fellow model and close friend Gigi Hadid commented, while several other famous faces also offered their congratulations, including Lily Aldridge and writer Cazzie David.

“@cazziedavid got a ring on it!!” Martha replied.

While Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski joked: “WHAT IS IT?!? WHAT’S THE SECRET?!! DON’T LEAVE ME HANGING!!” and designer Phillip Lim wrote, “wowowowowow! congrats! love you!!!! so frikin happy for you guys!! #cutestcoupleever (sic).”

The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Jason have kept their relationship under wraps since meeting on a photoshoot back in 2015 and have only made a handful of appearances on one another’s Instagram feeds.

However, the photographer was quick to share the happy news with his followers and posted two touching black-and-white photos, including one in which Martha modelled her engagement ring.

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.

Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne recently wore matching wigs and posed topless for a calendar photoshoot.

The models and close friends teamed up to star in the 2020 Chaos SixtyNine calendar, and in pictures from the special release, Kendall and Cara are seen in matching platinum blonde ’70s style wigs.

Executives of the biannual poster book magazine shared images from the calendar in a series of posts on Instagram and revealed the models underwent a dramatic transformation with various wigs, which range from blonde to brown and even grey.

In one picture, the stunning duo can be seen wearing blonde hairpieces with exaggerated, thick bangs covering their eyebrows, with Kendall rocking a ’90s style dark berry lipstick, while Cara sporting a simple slick of nude lip gloss.

And in another shot, the models can be seen posing in high-cut underwear and tiny crop tops while wearing hard hats on a building site.

For the calendar, Kendall and Cara went by the name CaKe (CAra and KEndall), and each shared their favourite cake recipes from their personal collections, such as Victoria sponge, New York cheesecake, and red velvet.

The CaKe calendar is the fourth of Chaos SixtyNine’s annual calendar releases and is available online with two cover options for $54 (£40).

London-based stylists Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall launched the A3-sized biannual publication in November 2017, and it has featured the likes of the late Karl Lagerfeld, Princess Beatrice, Bella Hadid, Karen Elson, Gigi Hadid, and Adwoa Aboah.

Charlize Theron had her hair cut and coloured just two hours before walking the red carpet at the 2020 Golden Globes.

The 44-year-old attended the Hollywood event on Sunday wearing a stunning black and green couture dress by Dior, and complemented the look with a fresh trim on her now-iconic pixie cut.

However, her longtime hairstylist Adir Abergel later shared his impressive work on Instagram, revealing that he had very little time to transform Charlize’s platinum blonde to more of a golden hue.

“Golden Globes goddess. Love collaborating with the most amazing team. We got to cut and color and style your hair in less than two hours. Love you @charlizeafrica,” he wrote alongside a picture of the Oscar-winning beauty.

Fans of the actress were quick to comment on Charlize’s new ‘do, with one writing: “Wow wow! In two hours? Reminds me of Twiggy in the ’60s absolutely flawless.”

Another commented: “She’s always hair goals. I’m cutting mine off this week.”

Charlize was up for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama at the annual ceremony for her role as former Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly in Bombshell, but lost out to Renee Zellweger, who scooped the award for her portrayal of Judy Garland in the biopic Judy.

She later presented her That Thing You Do! co-star Tom Hanks with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Meanwhile, Charlize took to Instagram on Tuesday to thank the team at Dior for creating her one-shouldered emerald green dress, which featured an exposed black bustier.

“Oh no! My bra is showing?!” she joked. “Shoutout to my incredible team for making me feel so good for the #GoldenGlobes.”
