Kate Hudson’s fitness brand Fabletics has terminated its partnership with YouTube star Myka Stauffer after she came under fire for re-homing her adoptive son.

Stauffer – a popular vlogger with more than one million combined subscribers across both her YouTube channels – and her husband James sparked fury last week by revealing they had given up Huxley, the Chinese-born four-year-old they adopted as a baby in 2017, claiming they could not meet the autistic child’s additional medical needs.

After fans of the athleisure brand declared they wouldn’t buy products if they continued to work with Stauffer, Fabletics officials and Hudson herself made it clear they had parted ways with The Stauffer Life star.

“Hello, I would like to know if you are still working with Myka Stauffer, or have plans to In the future,” one Instagram user commented on a post from the brand. “If so, I unfortunately I won’t be purchasing from your company any longer, as I don’t want to support child abandonment and neglect.”

The Fabletics team replied, “We appreciate you flagging this. We can confirm that Fabletics is no longer working with Myka,” a sentence they have been repeating across social media channels when asked about Stauffer.

Hudson, who co-founded the company in 2013, also directly wrote to a fan telling them the brand’s sponsorship deal with Stauffer had been “terminated”.

Stauffer has also lost deals with brands such as Playtex Baby, restaurant chain Chili’s and Mattel, following her controversial announcement.

In a tearful video announcing her family’s decision to give up Huxley, she said: “After multiple assessments, after multiple evaluations, numerous medical professionals have felt that he needed a different fit in his medical needs. He needed more.”

Lucy Hale has been named as the new global brand ambassador for beauty brand Almay.

The Pretty Little Liars actress will soon begin fronting a series of campaigns for the company, with the marketing to be focused on her clean skincare regime.

“I’m a beauty and skincare lover at heart, but I’ve always struggled with finding the right products for my sensitive skin,” she said. “For someone who has and still deals with skin issues, it’s so important that, from start to finish, I keep my beauty routine as gentle as possible, which is why I love Almay products. From their eyeliners to their mascaras to their make-up remover towelettes, Almay uses gentle ingredients in products that are specially formulated to avoid irritation. They’re the perfect solution for me – easy to use, high-quality products that don’t sacrifice performance.”

In addition, Lucy will help Almay bosses launch a range of new products later in the year.

And Silvia Galfo, global brand president of Revlon, which owns Almay, couldn’t be more thrilled to have the star onboard.

“Lucy embodies Almay’s approach to effortless beauty. She’s knowledgeable about what she applies to her sensitive skin and knows that using gentle formulas with carefully selected ingredients doesn’t mean she has to compromise on payoff or performance,” commented Silvia. “Lucy embraces our brand values of clean, effortless, hypoallergenic beauty in her daily life and is the perfect partner to inspire women to feel their best and be confident, no matter their skin needs. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome her to the Almay family.”

Lucy, 30, follows in the footsteps of former Almay brand ambassadors including Kate Hudson and Carrie Underwood.

Kate Hudson has finally “mastered” the art of at-home hair removal.

The Almost Famous actress recently joined her older brother Oliver Hudson for a chat on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and during the interview, the siblings candidly opened up on their grooming regimes.

When one viewer asked if Oliver “still waxes his junk”, the 43-year-old joked that he’s switched over to shaving.

“No, I haven’t done that in a long time, but I do shave and I put a razor on it,” the Rules of Engagement star shared. “And by the way, it is not as bad as people might think. It’s clean. It’s pretty. It’s good.”

Kate then decided to divulge her own hair removal regime and confessed she is now an expert at waxing.

“I wax myself! I can wax myself. I’ve mastered it,” the 41-year-old stated, prompting host Andy to ask if she enjoyed the process.

To which she replied: “It’s not about enjoying it. I enjoy the aftermath of it!”

The mother-of-three also shared how the ongoing coronavirus lockdown has improved her relationship with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

When Andy asked if self-isolating at home with the musician has been good for their sex life, Kate coyly replied, “Yes,” as she took a sip from her wine glass.

She continued: “I think it’s even more than that. I think it’s positive for knowing that I’m with the right person. There’s nobody else I’d want to be quarantined with right now. He’s just the best.”

Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, and her baby daughter Rani Rose have been tapped to star on the cover of People magazine’s annual The Beautiful Issue.

The famous mother-and-daughter duo wore white for the ethereal photoshoot, and in the accompanying interview, they discussed how they’re tackling the current restrictions while in lockdown in Los Angeles.

“It’s definitely an interesting time for reflecting on what is truly important,” the 41-year-old actress told the outlet, as she practices social distancing and self-isolation at home with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, and her sons Ryder, 16, and eight-year-old Bing.

And Goldie credits focusing on “meditation, nurturing, loving kindness for all in my heart and staying safe inside” as she stays at home with her partner of 37 years, Kurt Russell.

Elsewhere in the interview, Kate revealed how her mother had taught her how to be confident from a young age, and gave her the tools to have faith in her decisions.

“My mom gave me the floor to be able to feel confident enough to go out and feel like my life could be my own,” the Almost Famous star explained. “Mom was my greatest cheerleader. And it just made me think about Rani… going, ‘I hope I give her that kind of confidence,’ you know?”

And she’s thankful for the 74-year-old Hollywood icon for giving her good advice, and encouraging her how to succeed on her own.

“Mom always said to me, ‘Don’t you ever let a man dim your light,'” Kate recalled. “So, I’ve never defined myself through the way a man sees me, but I can define myself in the unit that we can create together. That is what mom gave to me.”

Kate Hudson has released a line of eco-conscious clothing for her fitness brand Fabletics.

The Almost Famous actress, who co-founded the lifestyle label in 2013, announced the arrival of the new clothing collection on her Instagram page on Wednesday.

“Wanted to share this exciting new activation of ours just in time for Earth Day coming up this month…introducing our new @Fabletics Eco-Conscious Capsule! A brand-new collection made from recycled and upcycled materials,” she wrote alongside an image of her wearing a grey outfit and sitting on a yoga mat.

The collection, which is already for sale on the company’s website, includes joggers, shorts, and pullovers, among other pieces of athleisurewear. The pieces come in simple colours like white, guava pink, and crystal blue.

“I can also personally attest to it being the perfect WFH (working from home) gear!” Hudson added, alluding to the clothing’s suitability for those practicing social distancing during the coronavirus crisis.

Elsewhere in her post, the star explained that the team at Fabletics has initiated a partnership with Repreve, a company that transforms recycled plastic bottles into fibre, reducing landfill waste. They are also undertaking further initiatives in order to address environmental concerns.

“We’re also happy to share that our stores (which are temporarily closed at this time) are 100 per cent climate neutral. And we’ve substituted plastic mailers for biodegradable, better-for-the-earth packaging,” Hudson concluded. “All of you have far exceeded any expectation I had when we started our brand. Your loyalty, care, inspiration, motivation is beautiful and I hope we are giving you what you need during these challenging days.”

Kevin Hart teaming with Fabletics on men’s activewear line

Kevin Hart has been tapped as the face of Fabletics’ first activewear collection for men.

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actor is to front the upcoming campaign for Fabletics Men, with the new line designed to “cater to guys that the older performance brands have left behind”.

“The activewear space wants to intimidate. To get you to spend way too much cash on complicated tech you don’t need. On overpriced labels. On streetwear that tries too hard to be cool,” the 40-year-old said. “But at Fabletics Men? We’re going to give you exactly what you want at a price that won’t scare the hell out of you.”

The new Fabletics Men collection includes high-performance activewear tops and bottoms, as well as athleisure items like trousers, hoodies, joggers, and crewneck sweatshirts.

Items are to go on sale online at the end of April, with 20 per cent of net proceeds set to be donated to the Heart to Heart International charity in support of coronavirus relief efforts.

And TechStyle co-chief executive officer and co-founder Don Ressler is thrilled to have Hart onboard at the label.

“Kevin called out the problem: a lot of older performance labels pressure you to be something you’re not. Fabletics Men works 24-7 to provide gear that works for the wearer – not the other way around,” he added.

Fabletics was co-founded by Kate Hudson in 2013. Other celebrities to collaborate on collections include Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, and Maddie Ziegler.

Demi Lovato is donating $125,000 (£101,000) from her new Fabletics collection to frontline workers during the Covid-19 crisis.

The Skycraper singer revealed the news on Instagram on Tuesday, and told her 79 million followers that she originally toyed with the idea of scrapping the new collection, which is set to be unveiled on Thursday.

“I’ve really been going back and forth on if this was the right time… but decided this is a time to provide inspiration for my fans at home and to help those in need,” Demi wrote in the caption, alongside a picture of her official statement. “$5 for every item sold will provide crucial gear to frontline workers, pledging up to $125,000 now through June 30 supporting the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization, powered by the United Nations Foundation. #Demi4Fabletics is coming 04/02/20.”

The Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker first collaborated with the sportswear brand, co-founded by actress Kate Hudson, in 2017.

In the accompanying statement, Demi said she had been “reflecting” on the decision to launch for a few days, but decided that now was the time to “inspire others” with the workout gear, that she hoped would help women “channel your inner strength”.

“In addition to lifting those up in need right now, it’s so important for us all to feel empowered, invincible and strong from the inside out. My collection is designed to do just that – uplifting you with bold colours and amazing contouring for the biggest confidence boost,” the 27-year-old noted. “I hope you’ll join me on our journey to project positivity, build inner strength and boost each other up! This is our chance to help the people in our community who need it most during the extraordinary time.”

Gwyneth Paltrow asked guests to wear no make-up to her intimate Goop beauty event on Wednesday.

The 47-year-old encouraged her famous friends, including Demi Moore and daughter Rumer Willis, Erin Foster, Kate Hudson, Rachel Zoe, and Samantha Ronson, to arrive without wearing concealer, foundation, and mascara.

Instead, she told them they could enhance their natural complexion with her GOOPGLOW beauty products, such as their hyaluronic acid and vitamin C-infused serum.

“No make up, no filter. An amazing gathering of some of the best women on planet earth,” Gwyneth wrote on Instagram, alongside snapshots of the bash.

Before the event, guests received a three-piece GOOPGLOW starter kit, which featured five packs of skin-supporting ingestible powder supplements, an overnight peel, and body luminiser.

Attendees then dined on an antioxidant-boosting menu, with dishes including salmon steak with kale, and in between courses, Chinese medicine practitioner Laura Erlich offered treatments to target stress, sleep, and anxiety, according to Vogue.com.

Guests were also treated to a conversation, led by artist Alexandra Grant, about the perception of beauty and ageing.

“What an incredible night makeup-free with these extraordinary women. Thank YOU both for sharing your light, love and wisdom!” Demi wrote on social media, alongside a snap of her with Gwyneth and Alexandra. “Beauty is more than what you see, it is what you feel. So grateful to be included in such a powerful, memorable and meaningful evening! #goopglow.”

Gwyneth also took to Instagram to thank her guests for embracing her unusual request.

“A beautiful gathering in celebration of beauty just the way we come,” the Oscar winner gushed.

Kate Hudson has enlisted the help of her son Ryder Robinson and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa to launch her new menswear collection for Fabletics.

The 40-year-old revealed the news that her activewear brand is branching into menswear in a sweet Instagram post, alongside a snap of her being cuddled by Danny and her 16-year-old son, whom she shares with ex-husband Chris Robinson.

“Today it’s all about my boys,” Kate wrote. “Exciting news: @Fabletics MEN is here! Which means the guys in your life can now become VIPs too – but spots are LIMITED! The first 5,000 guys to sign up get early access…so tell all the men in your life!!”

The new line, which features T-shirts, vests, shorts, hoodies and joggers, as well as two-piece workout kits, is priced from $34.95 to $59.95 (£27 – £46). Items are now available to purchase online.

Kate launched her affordable activewear subscription service with Just Fab back in 2013, and has collaborated with Kelly Rowland, Maddie Ziegler, and her mother, Goldie Hawn.

Musician Danny shared his enthusiasm for the garments in a tongue-in-cheek video posted on Instagram too. The clip shows him unboxing the goodies in the style of an influencer.

“Hey guys, I’m really excited. I just got in the new collection,” the 33-year-old, who shares daughter Rani Rose with the Almost Famous star, began the clip. “I’m wearing this… this is a hoodie, the new hoodie. It’s so nice. It feels so good.”

“This is a shirt. It’s so nice,” he joked, as Kate can be heard laughing in the background.

Christie Brinkley champions body positivity with throwback bikini photo

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!”
