Zoe Kravitz has clapped back at an Instagram follower who accused her of lightening her skin.

The Big Little Lies star, the daughter of fellow actress Lisa Bonet and rocker Lenny Kravitz, shared a photo of herself posing with her grey and white dog on social media on Tuesday, while holed up at home amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

“Stay inside kids. one day at a time,” she captioned the snap, which referenced her self-isolation as cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles and New York, advise residents to stay home to contain the spread of Covid-19.

The bright lighting of the picture led one fan to question whether Zoe had undergone a cosmetic treatment to lighten her skin colour, with the user writing, “Am I wrong or she is looking so white in this picture, please don’t tell me you are getting ready of your melanin, you are so beautiful with your natural color (sic).”

The comment prompted a backlash from some of Zoe’s other followers, who branded the remark “rude”, before the 31-year-old weighed in herself.

“Girl. this is what happens to some of us mixed kids when we can’t go outside lol (laugh out loud),” she retorted.

This isn’t the first time that Zoe has had to respond to unwanted comments about her appearance on social media.

The High Fidelity star recently shared two selfies on Instagram in which she showcased the products she used from YSL Beauty to achieve her perfect pout.

However, one of her 5.6 million followers was irked by the snaps, and claimed the actress had resorted to using fillers.

“Babe, what have u done to your beautiful natural lips??” the user wrote, prompting the star to reply, “Um. put some lipgloss on them…”

Zoe Kravitz has responded to a social media follower who falsely accused her of getting lip fillers.

The Big Little Lies actress, who has been the face of Yves Saint Laurent Beaute since 2017, recently posted two selfies on Instagram, with the images showcasing the products she used from the French fashion house to achieve her perfect pout.

“Pre @ysl show vibes @yslbeauty Rouge Pur Couture Slim Sheer Matte 102 + Natural Pink and Volupte Liquid Balm 1,” she wrote in the caption.

However, one of her 5.6 million followers was irked by the snaps, and claimed Zoe had resorted to using fillers.

“Babe, what have u done to your beautiful natural lips??” the user wrote, prompting the star to set the record straight.

“Um. put some lipgloss on them…” the 31-year-old fired.

Zoe was later forced to comment once again, after more followers accused her of getting lip injections.

“These are my lips. all pure. the equivalent as they always been,” she stated.

The brunette beauty was in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week and hit the headlines when she attended Anthony Vaccarello’s autumn/winter 2020 show for Saint Laurent alongside her father, Lenny Kravitz.

She wore a silver chainmail crop top with high-waisted jeans as she sat on the front row with her rocker dad, who wore a chic black suit with a striped shirt.

“This is important. @anthonyvaccarello. another beautiful show,” Zoe praised in a separate Instagram post.

Zoe Kravitz felt ‘short and ungainly’ as a teenager

Zoe Kravitz felt “shortly and ungainly” when she was a teenager.

The Big Little Lies star is an ambassador for YSL Beauty, has fronted campaigns for the likes of Saint Laurent and Tiffany & Co., and always flaunts her enviable style on the red carpet.

However, in a cover interview with Elle U.S. magazine, Zoe admitted she didn’t feel confident about her appearance growing up, because she compared herself to her actress mother Lisa Bonet and the models her father Lenny Kravitz dated, such as Adriana Lima.

“I didn’t like my new school. I didn’t feel like I fit in anywhere, and I was surrounded by an enormous amount of beauty and posturing. I was a chunky, perfectly normal-looking 15-year-old, but I had this remarkably beautiful skinny mother and a father who was dating a supermodel, and I felt short and ungainly,” she explained.

The actress soon developed an eating disorder which she suffered from for about a decade, and she remains mindful of her battle.

“I’m okay now,” the 31-year-old insisted. “But I am very vigilant. It’s a disease, and I never let myself forget that.”

Zoe, who married actor Karl Glusman last year, gave the interview to promote her starring role in upcoming miniseries High Fidelity, based on Nick Hornby’s book of the same name.

And the brunette beauty, who considers her love of fashion “an obsession”, revealed that she helped costume designer Colleen Atwood find vintage clothes for her character, including a leather coat that’s similar to the one John Cusack sported in the 2000 film adaptation.

“Most of them are now living in my closet,” she added of the costumes.

Lenny Kravitz is desperately searching for an “incredibly sentimental” pair of sunglasses.

The rocker last wore the vintage piece of eyewear when he performed at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California on Saturday.

But taking to Twitter on Monday, the musician posted a set of photos of himself wearing the big square frames with white detailing, and made an appeal for the return of the beloved glasses.

“They are incredibly sentimental to me, they are vintage and they belonged to a family member,” he explained. “Hoping to get them back, no questions asked.”

In a separate post on his Instagram Stories, the 55-year-old added: “They were sitting up on stage when I let some of the audience up towards the end of the show and they were taken from my riser.”

And the Fly Away hitmaker has even created a special email address – kravitzglasses@gmail.com – for fans to contact him if they have the sunglasses.

In light of Lenny’s request, fans have rushed to help the star recover his favourite piece of eyewear, sharing the post over 5,000 times.

“Please return glasses to Lenny. Sometimes it’s the memory not the item that is important,” one user wrote, while another added: “Whoever has them hear this: Lenny has brought so much love and positivity to this world with his gift. DO THE RIGHT THING! It’s REQUIRED based upon the law of KARMA. It won’t be good for your personal life story to keep what is not yours after being asked to return them.”

Lenny did not detail who the sunglasses originally belonged to. However, he has often been photographed in the shades, last wearing them while walking the red carpet at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards last month.

Zoe Kravitz is gearing up to launch a beauty line with Yves Saint Laurent.

The Big Little Lies star announced her partnership with the international brand on Friday, teasing fans with a sexy promo video clip of herself cooking up a pot of red liquid in a kitchen.

“@YSLBEAUTY#YSLBEAUTYXZOECOLLECTION ME + YSL BEAUTÉ! STAY TUNED FOR MORE, SEPTEMBER 1ST,” she captioned the footage before signing off with a red lipstick emoji.

Although the actress has been the face of Yves Saint Laurent beauty since 2017 and has fronted various campaigns – including the label’s Black Opium fragrance last year – this upcoming venture marks the first make-up line she’s ever launched.

Last month, the 30-year-old became the global ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent Beaute, just months after she was hand-picked to be the muse for the luxury French fashion house. She is also set to front their upcoming campaigns, including the Tatouage Couture collection later this summer.

At the time, the newly-married Zoe, the daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, expressed her excitement about working with YSL Beauty, and said it was one of her “favourite brands”.

“Their ability to combine the chicest of styles with a raw edge has always been to me one of the best ways to express yourself through fashion and beauty,” she added.

Zoe’s exciting collaboration announcement comes just weeks after she tied the knot with Nocturnal Animals actor Karl Glusman at her father Lenny’s home in Paris, France in June.

Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman marked their wedding with custom “Just Married” jackets.

The Big Little Lies star married the 31-year-old actor and musician at her father Lenny Kravitz’s 18th century mansion in Paris, France on 29 June, and Karl has now shared a sweet detail from their intimate nuptials.

“I believe our stars were written before we met, ‘Karl + Zoe, ride or die into the sunset…'” he captioned a photo on Instagram which showed the couple embracing hours after becoming newlyweds.

In the snap, the Nocturnal Animals star shows off the back of his custom black leather jacket, which features a big heart filled with clouds and a portrait of the 30-year-old X-Men: First Class actress and an unfurled scroll across the bottom of the jacket which reads, “Just Married.”

Zoe also had a matching jacket which featured a portrait of her new husband in the heart.

Karl later tagged artist Samantha Urbani as the creator of the unique piece of artwork on the jacket and wrote: “@samandude made the COOLEST jackets EVER!”

The artist shared a video of the duo dancing in their new jackets and wrote, “Only the coolest couple could inspire the coolest jackets, it was almost as fun making them as watching you get down in them.”

The couple exchanged vows in a chic Parisian ceremony in front of guests including her mother Lisa Bonet, her stepfather Jason Momoa, and her Big Little Lies co-stars Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Reese Witherspoon.

Many of the famous faces invited to the wedding had also joined the bride and groom at their rehearsal dinner at the Laperouse restaurant the night before the nuptials.

Zoe and Karl began dating in 2016, and became engaged in February last year.

Chris Pratt agreed to be the new brand ambassador for Tumi because he’s been using the luggage company’s products for years.

Chris was unveiled as the latest campaign star in April, following in the footsteps of previous Tumi models Lenny and Zoe Kravitz, with his face appearing on adverts across Asia and the Middle East.

Talking about why the partnership has been such a great fit, Chris told Prestige magazine he’s long been a fan of Tumi’s offerings.

“I only ever promote products I actually use in real life. It’s all been very organic,” he shared. “We met with the Tumi team in LA; got along really well, and we went straight ahead to shoot the first campaign. And now I’m in Hong Kong, which is just incredible!

“Tumi products are sleek, stylish, and they are built to last. They’ve been my choice of luggage for a long time. I’ve always trusted Tumi as my go-to bags on my trips around the world.”

The star, who recently wrapped on the global promo tour for Avengers: Endgame, went on to name the label’s Alpha 3 Brief Pack and Alpha 3 Carry-on as his go-to travel bags of choice.

He also listed what he looks for when he’s buying new luggage.

“Sturdiness and durability are really the most important features to me. Tumi products are incredibly durable and will last for years and years,” the 39-year-old praised. “Because I travel so frequently and for long periods of time if I’m off to shoot a film on location, I need luggage that can take a beating without falling apart.”

Jennifer Lopez set the Internet on fire by sharing a sizzling picture of herself in a bikini on Sunday (31Mar19).

The 49-year-old singer and actress donned a baby pink two-piece for the sexy snap, which was taken on the set of her upcoming movie Hustlers.

“I’m a hustler baby… I just want you to know… #Ramona on fire,” Jennifer wrote alongside the picture. “On set and in character for #hustlersmovie.”

Mother-of-two Jennifer showed off her incredible abs in the image, and teamed the swimwear with hoop earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, as well as a pair of sunglasses and pink lipstick.

Jennifer’s new fiance Alex Rodriguez was among the first to comment on the image, using emojis including the fire and heart symbols to express his excitement about the photo.

Other celebrities to comment on the snap included Lenny Kravitz, who wrote “@jlo Boom! There it is,” and Naomi Campbell, who followed in Alex’s footsteps by writing “Yes” with the fire and heart emojis.

“Dayum mamaaa (sic),” Vanessa Hudgens, who co-starred with Jennifer in recent movie Second Act, added.

Jennifer plays a stripper in Hustlers, and embarked on a 10-day diet challenge, which involved cutting all sugar and carbs out of her diet, to get in shape for the project.

“I’m getting ready for this movie called Hustlers and I have to play a stripper, so I’m getting ready for that,” she said during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February. “I work out a lot, I try to stay healthy but (my trainer) was like, ‘Let’s do something to move the needle.'”

Admitting she initially struggled to cut out the foods she wasn’t allowed to eat, Jennifer added: “You feel like you’re in an alternate reality or universe, like, you’re addicted, and you think about it all the time. When you go back to the sugar you don’t want it as much, it’s something you get used to a little bit.”

Salma Hayek has proudly showed off her grey hairs in a relaxed selfie snap.

The Mexican actress, known for her flowing brunette locks and flawless complexion, always turns heads, whether she is posing on the red carpet or running errands while off-duty.

However, Salma has now taken to Instagram to upload a candid photo showing her gazing into the lens of a camera with no make-up on and several silver hairs framing her face.

“#proud of my white hair. Orgullosa de mis canas. #hair,” the 52-year-old wrote alongside the picture on Sunday (03Feb19).

A number of Salma’s celebrity pals were quick to comment on the lovely photo, with Jessica Simpson writing, “Gorgeous lady,” and musician Lenny Kravitz noting, “You are stunning.”

Some of the Beatriz at Dinner star’s eight million Instagram followers praised her for displaying her natural hair too, with one fan stating, “Looking fab, the grey hairs are a sign of a life lived to the full,” while another described her white hairs as “wisdom highlights”.

A third commented, “Proud of you for being an amazing representative of a strong Latina.”

Previously, Salma opened up about her hair and beauty regime in an interview with The New York Times and claimed that she tries to use only natural formulas or products from her Nuance cosmetics brand.

“At night I take off my make-up with coconut oil,” she shared. “Then I use rose water to take off the residuals. You can use a hot towel with the rose water – you put a wet towel in the microwave – to do a little steam. I’ll use the chamomile cleanser from Nuance. Then I splash with cold water.”

Lenny and Zoe Kravitz have landed their first campaign together – for high-end luggage label Tumi.

Shot in the Bahamas, the rocker and his actress daughter pose with wheelie suitcases, cross body bags, and rucksacks from the new Alpha 3 collection.

It marks the first time the father-and-daughter duo have appeared together on a project, and Big Little Lies star Zoe really enjoyed the experience.

“I loved working with Tumi and the idea of telling a story about travel, family and connecting with one’s roots,” she said in a statement. “It was amazing to travel to the other side of the island for my first time to see where my family originated from and to pay respect to our elders and those who came before us – to experience that with my father was monumental.”

As well as still images, Tumi has released numerous videos as part of the new campaign, which have been shared on the brand’s social media platforms.

One, titled ‘Perfecting the Journey’, sees Zoe and Lenny, discovering new parts of the Bahamas, where Lenny’s maternal grandfather hails from.

“A case doesn’t hold the future, but it can carry it. Zoe Kravitz and Lenny Kravitz journey back to where it all began, paying respect to the generations who paved the way for them to become who they are today,” the caption reads.

Lenny provided a voice over for the clip, where he says: “My grandfather started it all, which made way for me to become who I am, then Zoe, to become who she is. “We’re gonna go see where this all started.”
