Shanina Shaik has claimed the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been cancelled for 2019.

The model, who has walked in the spectacle five times, dropped the bombshell during an interview with Australia’s The Daily Telegraph, in which she complained about the gap in her busy work schedule.

“Unfortunately, the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year,” Shaik said. “It’s something I’m not used to because every year around this time I’m training like an Angel. But I’m sure in the future something will happen, which I’m pretty sure about.”

She went on to explain that the prestigious fashion event, which has featured the likes of models Lily Aldridge, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, and Barbara Palvin, is looking to rebrand.

“I’m sure they’re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because it’s the best show in the world,” the 28-year-old added.

Shaik made her debut for Victoria’s Secret back in 2011 and appeared annually on the catwalk before taking a two-year break. She returned to the runway for the 2018 event held in New York City.

The news of the apparent cancellation comes after it was revealed that the show – which has featured musical performances from artists including Rihanna, The Weeknd, Kanye West and Maroon 5 – may not be broadcast on TV in the U.S.

Back in May, editors at CNBC reported that Victoria’s Secret bosses didn’t think television wasn’t the “right fit” for the annual presentation, and instead may stream it online.

According to the outlet, last year’s lingerie extravaganza had the worst ratings in its broadcast history.

A spokesperson for Victoria’s Secret has not yet responded to Shaik’s comments.

Kendall Jenner: ‘My acne journey helped me find myself’

Kendall Jenner “found herself” when she started opening up about her problems with acne.

The model joined the Proactiv team as its brand ambassador in January and was subsequently slated on social media for over-exaggerating the hype around the partnership announcement, as she was praised by her mother Kris Jenner for being “brave” and “vulnerable”.

Despite the backlash, Kendall has been using the products for more than a year and has become more confident since sharing her battles with her problem skin.

“As corny as it might sound, my acne journey helped me find myself in the process; it made me realise my worth and pushed me to be even more confident,” she told Elle.com. “I learned so much about myself to the point where It made me glad it came back worse than ever. I needed my path to be shifted to end up where I am today.”

When her acne first began in her teens, she sought advice from her older sisters – Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and Khloe Kardashian – who urged her to stop touching her face.

“Don’t ever touch your face. Your hands are very dirty,” the 23-year-old recalled them telling her. “When I started breaking out, I was kind of crazy about it. I just wanted to be clean at all times. I’m also a hypochondriac so I felt like if I touched my face I’d die. I was so bad.”

Her secret weapon for battling breakouts now is the Proactiv Adapalene Gel, which she claims is a miracle worker.

“If I have a pimple and I put that on at night before I go to bed, I swear to God, I wake up in the morning and it’s gone. It pulls it all out. I put the gel on one more night, and then it’s completely gone the next day,” she gushed.

Kendall Jenner is finally collaborating with her younger sister Kylie Jenner on her cosmetics line.

During a recent vlog post, the 21-year-old beauty billionaire quietly revealed that her model sister has created a lipstick and eyeshadow palette for the hugely successful Kylie Cosmetics.

To celebrate the four-year anniversary of the brand, Kendall has designed a collection full of neutral hues, packaged in a baby pink and gold aesthetic, according to Vogue.

The sneak peek was unveiled during a video shared by Kylie, giving her fans a taste of her everyday life. The first look, spotted by an eagle-eyed fan on Instagram, also included some new Lip Kits, and a Kylie Skin sunscreen and travel-sized face wash and toner.

The vlog post also hinted at the campaign photos for the Kylie and Kendall collaboration, which appear to be the same face-to-face vibe set against a baby pink backdrop that Kylie and Kim Kardashian did for their collaboration.

While Kylie has collaborated with each of her older sisters – including Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian – for her cosmetics line, she revealed back in March that it has been difficult to work with Kendall due to her contractual obligations to skincare and make-up powerhouse Estee Lauder.

“You know, Kendall was in a contract for a really long time,” the mother-of-one shared in an Instagram Live Q&A with fans. “So I couldn’t do a collab with her. That’s the only reason why I didn’t collab with her. But… you know. We worked it out.”

Kendall Jenner wowed Cannes in a stunning pink tulle dress from the new Giambattista Valli x H&M collection.

Project Love – the first collaboration between the Italian designer and high street brand – was revealed on Thursday at the Cinema Against AIDS amfAR gala during the prestigious film festival.

Model and reality star Kendall, along with Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni, singer/songwriter H.E.R., French model Bianca Brandolini, Chinese singer Chris Lee and musician Ross Lynch, were all chosen by Valli and Ann-Sofie Johansson – creative adviser at H&M – to debut the pieces from the collaboration.

The collection features the opulent and over-the-top ballgowns and feminine dresses that Valli has become known for, and includes both women and menswear inspired by the elegance and luxurious feel of Valli’s couture collection.

“H&M gives me the opportunity to bring my vision of style and my celebration of beauty to a wider audience,” Valli said of the affordable line. “The goal is to share my love for beauty and to be able to be part of everyone’s ‘happy moments,’ to help create love stories all around the world.”

Kendall was seen sporting a hot pink tulle ballgown with a detachable train – priced at $399 (£315) – which she featured heavily on her Instagram before attending the amfAR event. Posting clips on her Stories, she is seen posing on the balcony of her hotel room at sunset, while being filmed by a camera crew.

“I’m so happy to be wearing one of the first pieces from the Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration here at the amfAR gala,” Jenner said in a statement. “This dress is everything – gorgeous, dramatic and fiercely feminine – and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the collection will be like.”

A limited selection of Project Love pieces will hit 12 H&M stores across the world on Saturday, with the full collection available on 7 November.

This is the first collaboration with a high-street retailer for Giambattista Valli, while H&M has a history of teaming with high-end fashion brands, including Karl Lagerfeld, Moschino, Comme des Garcons, Kenzo and Alexander Wang.

Carine Roitfeld dedicated the 2019 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala to Karl Lagerfeld and David Bowie.

The annual event, held as part of the Cannes Film Festival, is always a fashionable affair, with Roitfeld acting as curator for the past seven years.

For the 26th gala, a rock and roll themed event with the title We Can Be Heroes, the CR Fashion Book editor paid homage to her late friend Lagerfeld, whose sudden death at the age of 85 shocked the world in February.

“Karl was always involved in the event, always attending, joining my table and making sure that any brand he was involved with, whether Chanel or Fendi, was always a big partner in the show and donated clothes,” she said, reports Vogue. “He can’t be with us this evening, but I think he would like what we’ve done because he was also a big fan of David Bowie.”

As well as a host of stars turning out for the bash, there was also a runway show, featuring the likes of Winnie Harlow and Stella Maxwell, who walked in pieces from Givenchy, Alexandre Vauthier and Tommy Hilfiger.

“We’re not here just to have fun, we’re here as a collective with the goal to raise a million. Fashion cares,” Harlow shared.

One of the biggest talking points of the night was the dresses worn by Kendall Jenner, Chiara Ferragni, Bianca Brandolini, Chris Lee, H.E.R. and Ross Lynch, who all debuted designs from Giambattista Valli’s new H&M collection.

A$AP Rocky opens up about sex in Calvin Klein’s new #MyTruth campaign

A$AP Rocky speaks his truth about sex in Calvin Klein’s new #MyTruth campaign.

Recruiting an A-list line-up of music stars, actors and models for the new advertising push, the all-American brand has asked its latest campaign stars to share their truth in videos shot by Jonas Lindstroem.

In his clip, A$AP is surrounded by flames as he tells the camera: “Growing up in New York City, I live life on the edge. So when it comes to sex, it ain’t no different than the streets. Keep that s**t hot baby.”

In a second video he simply states: “A$AP. A$AP. You ask my truth in two words, well that’s easy. A$AP Rocky.”

The 30-year-old rapper has been a part of the Calvin Klein family since late 2017. Other stars to join him in the newest campaign include Billie Eilish, Troye Sivan, Shawn Mendes, Noah Centineo, Indya Moore, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.

In a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Noah explained what truth means to him.

“Sometime, the greatest thing standing in our way, is our reflection,” the 23-year-old said. “I feel like truth is… when I was really young, we were driving the car going to Disney, and my dad he said something that I take with me to this day, it’s that truth is relative. And even science, we create these new laws, we find these new laws, but then they get disproven the following year or the year after that

“So what is truth? It’s a great question, I don’t think I can really answer it; it’s a very personal thing. I think truth is presence, being in a moment with someone. I think truth is standing up for what you believe in.”

For music’s hottest new star Billie, 17, she says she sometimes finds it “way easier” to share through music, while 20-year-old Shawn summed truth up as “a 24/7 daily thing that’s always changing”.

Kendall Jenner gearing up to launch fragrance line

Kendall Jenner is looking to make a splash in the world of fragrance.

The model’s siblings have already carved out names for themselves in the beauty arena, with her older half-sister Kim Kardashian launching her KKW Beauty line in June 2017, and her KKW Fragrance brand a few months later, while her younger sister Kylie Jenner unveiled her Kylie Cosmetics company in 2015, with the business now valued at over $1 billion.

Now, it appears Kendall wants a slice of the action too, with editors at The Blast reporting that she has filed documents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office seeking to trademark “Kendall Jenner” and “Kendall” for a range of perfumes and fragrances.

The document also requests permission to use her moniker on numerous skincare products, including haircare preparations, and bath and body gels, as well as on lip balm, deodorant, face lotions, cosmetics, lip gloss, nail polish, and nail polish remover.

Kendall is yet to comment on the filing, or tease any of her potential products on her social media pages.

Though in March, Kylie hinted during an Instagram Live video that she was working on a cosmetics collaboration with her 23-year-old sister. When asked by a fan whether a line inspired by Kendall was on the way, she responded by winking at the camera and putting her finger up to her lips to make the “Shhh,” gesture.

The 21-year-old also explained that her sibling’s former deal with Estee Lauder prevented them from working together until now.

“You know Kendall was in a contract for a really long time so I couldn’t do a collab with her,” she said, adding: “That’s the only reason why I didn’t collab with her.”

Last month, Kendall also made a move into the beauty industry by announcing that she was investing in oral care company Moon.

Kendall Jenner has described herself as a “love at first sight” kind of person.

The model made the comments during a candid interview for her sister Kourtney Kardashian’s new lifestyle website, Poosh, and confessed that she knows whether she’s interested in someone romantically as soon as she meets them.

“I am very much someone who, I am love at first sight type of person,” she stated. “I know I am gonna fall in love with you the second that I meet you.”

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star elaborated on the feeling, and insisted that it doesn’t happen often, but when it does, she just goes with it because she knows it’s right.

“I have this overwhelming feeling. And that doesn’t happen a lot for me,” the 23-year-old reflected. “I am not the kind of person who can gradually fall in love with someone. I don’t understand that. I’m a really straightforward person.”

Kendall also went on to joke that, for her, the feeling of falling in love is the same as when she discovered her other two passions in life: modelling and horse riding.

Back in February (19), the brunette beauty confirmed she had been dating Philadelphia 76ers basketball star Ben Simmons, 22, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

When asked about how long the pair had been involved with one another, she coyly responded, “For a bit now.”

Kendall had previously been linked to Anwar Hadid, the younger brother of fellow models Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Kendall Jenner: ‘I didn’t borrow Prada top from my niece!’

Kendall Jenner has set the record straight amid rumours she borrowed a feathered Prada tank top from her five-year-old niece North West.

The 23-year-old model was spotted wearing the coral top, which features white and red feather detailing, just four days after North – the daughter of her half-sister Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West – donned it to attend Kanye’s Sunday Service last week.

Fans immediately began questioning whether or not Kendall, whose version of the top was cropped to show off her washboard abs, was actually wearing North’s tank – but the stunning brunette has denied that was the case.

“Oh my god, it’s hysterical. North and Penelope (another of Kendall’s nieces) I think got it before me at the outlets on the way to Palm Springs a while ago,” she told People. “I went a couple weeks later to the outlets and bought the same thing not knowing she got it. We had no idea that each of us bought the shirt.”

And when she saw the images of North in the top, Kendall predicted that by wearing her own version of the top herself, she would cause the speculation she had.

“I saw her wearing it and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I have that shirt.’ I predicted all this, like it’s literally going to freak people out that I am wearing that shirt,” she laughed. “I ended up wearing it really thinking I’m a crazy person. Honestly, I should have lied and said it was North’s shirt because that would be hysterical!”

However, the statuesque star is well aware of why people may have made the assumption, adding: “I got mine tailored a bit so it does look like I’m wearing her miniature shirt!”

While Kendall didn’t borrow the top from North on this occasion, she does admire the fashion sense the tot already has.

“I would borrow clothes from North,” she smiled. “She is stylish. She dresses herself.”

Kendall Jenner has made another move in the beauty industry by investing in oral care company Moon.

The 23-year-old model announced the new collaboration on Tuesday (23Apr19), writing alongside a picture of her brushing her teeth on Instagram: “Excited to launch @moon.”

While many of the Moon products had been finalised after Kendall came on board, she did co-create the $19.99 (£15.50) Kendall Jenner Teeth Whitening Pen with company boss Shaun Neff, which, according to a press release, “is crafted from some of Kendall’s favourite natural ingredients, like soothing lavender oil, whitening strawberry extract and the healing properties of honeysuckle flower”.

“Inspired to bring a new, elevated oral care experience, Shaun Neff partnered with fashion icon Kendall Jenner to co-create Kendall’s signature product, the Teeth Whitening Pen,” Moon’s website states. “Together their focus was clear: Disruptive design, hand selected ingredients, and a shared intention to bring more smiles to more faces around the world.”

Other products include an activated charcoal toothpaste for $8.99 (£6.95) and floss for $3.99 (£3). They all come in sleek black packaging with minimal white writing, and Kendall is thrilled with the final finish.

In a promotional video, the stunning brunette, who is also the face of skincare brand Proactiv, told fans: “I used to not know how to smile, it’s a fun fact! It was really cool being a part of the building process it is really based on oral beauty and it goes back to even the aesthetic thing and how it looks really nice on your counter.”

All of Moon’s products, which will reportedly arrive in Ulta Beauty stores in the U.S. in May, are vegan and PETA-certified cruelty free.
