Nina Agdal often discusses her life and career with Christie Brinkley.

The Danish model, who has posed for Victoria’s Secret and in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, has been dating the supermodel’s son, Jack Brinkley-Cook, for the past two years.

Over the course of her relationship with Jack, Nina’s got to know his family too, and loves speaking with Christie about all sorts of topics.

“If I have a question regarding my career or regarding something I’m doing, I’ll ask her,” she told People magazine. “But she’s kind of just family. We talk about family stuff and real-life things. Not so much about modelling. It’s cool. I’ve been in that circle with Jack for more than two years now so we don’t really talk about work that much.”

Previously, Nina gushed over Christie in an interview for talk show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Describing her bond with the 65-year-old, the star claimed they have a “super cool” bond.

“She’s one of the most, you know, the smartest woman and one of the most beautiful women. I like get surprised, I walk out of the door in the Hamptons at 10 am and she looks 10 times better than I do at all times. She’s an incredible woman. She’s so sweet,” the 27-year-old shared.

Elsewhere in the People interview, Nina spoke about how she enjoys doing her own make-up for events, but sometimes gets insecure about her breasts when wearing “cleavage dresses”.

“I have a weird thing with cleavage dresses because I have actual boobs. I’ve always been very insecure about that because it wasn’t accepted for a long time in the industry,” she confessed.

Lauren Hutton will never be tempted to get Botox injections ever again.

The iconic model/actress has no plans to retire, having landed campaigns for the likes of H&M and Alexander Wang in recent years.

But while many celebrities try out anti-ageing skincare products in order to keep lines and wrinkles at bay, Lauren has now insisted some treatments aren’t for her.

“I tried Botox once, and I jumped back when I saw myself because I had an eyebrow that looked like the Wicked Witch. Go figure,” she recalled in an interview with People magazine. “I took collagen a few times. I had a movie where I had to look like I was 23 and I was 30-something.”

Lauren went on to reveal that a few of her friends had surgery in an effort to look younger but joked that they were now unrecognisable.

And the 75-year-old is adamant that she has now embraced her wrinkles and is enjoying getting older.

“I’ve let go that I look like a miniature Shar-Pei,” the American Gigolo star laughed. “The wrinkles are going to be there, and they really are the badges of your life.”

And Lauren, who walked the runway for Valentino as part of the Italian label’s couture show in July, added that the key to her happiness has been travelling the world.

“I wanted to see the world. I wanted to know what I didn’t know,” she shared. “I would go straight to somewhere 20 degrees above or below the equator, living in wild places, sleeping on the ground or in tents or huts. Places with no GPS. No one can find you. If it went bad, you’re on your own. My face would change. Because I would have learned things.”

Serena Williams has unveiled a size-inclusive dress that she designed “for every body”.

The tennis ace shared a video on Instagram showing her wearing the $120 (£99) red Twist Front Dress from her eponymous clothing collection alongside six other women.

Serena, who is mother to daughter Alexis Olympia, explained that the confidence-boosting long-sleeved dress can be worn by women of every size, as she designed the garment to be fully inclusive.

“We’re having a red-hot summer over @serena. I designed the Twist Front Dress for everybody and every BODY,” the 37-year-old captioned the video.

“No one in the world looks exactly the same,” the Grand Slam winner says at the beginning of the clip. “We all are different people, we have different personalities, we have different traits. We all look different and we’ve got to bring our personalities out.”

She then asks the other women to share how they feel wearing her Twist Front Dress.

“I’m curvy, but feel confident in my curves,” one states, while another jokes: “I feel spicy like a jalapeno.”

The knee-length dress is also available in black, and in sizes XS to 3XL at serenawilliams.com.

Serena, who wed Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in 2017, launched her eponymous label with a 12-piece capsule collection in May 2018. The sports star said the line was “inspired by femininity and strength” and explained that she had an ‘S’ embroidered into each of the garments to help women find their own ‘S’ word.

“My ‘S’ is strong and sure,” Williams said. “I have a really good friend of mine, who’s been through a lot and her ‘S’ word is ‘survivor.’ That really touched me. My mom’s ‘S’ word is ‘steadfast’ and boy, is she steadfast.”

Melissa McCarthy is developing a “more accessible” clothing line.

The Oscar-nominated actress ventured into fashion in 2015 by creating the plus-sized clothing label Melissa McCarthy Seven7, but she revealed last year that future collections were on hold because she had disagreed with brand bosses on how she should run the business.

However, in a new profile piece for The Wall Street Journal, Melissa shared that she’s now working on launching a smaller, more affordable label.

“I just wanted to make it a little smaller and more accessible,” she said, explaining her decision. “I wanted to work on keeping prices down and for it to be for everyone.”

The Can You Ever Forgive Me? star, who majored in clothing and textiles at Southern Illinois University, wanted Melissa McCarthy Seven7 to be inclusive as she struggled to find stylish outfits for her figure. She designed garments that ranged in size from a U.S. four to 28 (U.K. six to 30).

“I’ve been every shape and size that’s out there, and I just found it harder and harder to find stuff,” the 48-year-old continued. “I thought, I’m modern and young and want to wear what everybody else is wearing. Why is this such a strange request?”

Recalling the disagreement with label bosses, who are all men, Melissa told People last year, “I just found that so fascinating. I’m not saying it’s my way or the highway, but design is such an intimate and hopefully long relationship and you really have to make sure you’re doing it right.”

She added that the incident was even more “heartbreaking” because she had designed a whole season of outfits that ultimately never got released.

Shay Mitchell has found it “empowering” to put together outfits to fit her growing baby bump.

The Pretty Little Liars actress announced in June that she was expecting her first child with partner Matte Babel, and earlier this month, shared that the baby is a girl.

Shay has looked great throughout her pregnancy, and in a new interview with People, explained that she has really enjoyed shopping for ensembles to suit her changing figure.

“I haven’t changed my style because I’m pregnant,” she commented to the publication. “I wear all of the same stuff. I curated this collection before I was pregnant. I feel empowered dressing my bump. When I was hiding it, it was very difficult.”

While Shay has continued to wear items from her usual wardrobe, she did note that she has also purchased some regular clothes in bigger sizes and invested in some maternity jeans.

And she felt entirely confident recently when she slipped on one of her bikini designs for her Shaycation x Revolve collection, which she shot the campaign for in Cuixmala, Mexico.

“To be honest, more than in my entire life, being in a bikini at this point (in my pregnancy) makes me feel more confident than I ever was before,” the 32-year-old smiled. “I don’t really have to suck it in. I can’t suck it in. So, you get what you get.”

The Shaycation x Revolve line features a range of beach-ready pieces, including bikinis, swimwear, jumpsuits, rompers, dresses, sweatshirts, and even a hair scrunchie.

Items are priced from $25- $269 (£20 – £215).

Ciara has dropped 20 pounds (nine kilograms) since the start of her career after adopting strict eating habits over 15 years.

The Level Up singer has worked with her personal trainer, Decker Davis, since the launch of her career back in 2004, and he encouraged her to eat five small meals a day and exercise four days per week to secure her toned figure.

“When I first started in my career, I weighed 20 pounds more than I weigh now,” she told People. “That was the first time I got introduced to eating five small meals a day to impact my workout.

“When you’re eating small meals, your body starts to function like a well-oiled machine. You’re using the restroom regularly, so your body is really on clock.”

She also credits drinking plenty of water on a daily basis as one of the secrets to keeping her incredible figure in check.

“I literally drink a gallon and a half a day,” Ciara shared. “It’s amazing how you can work out hard all day, but if you don’t eat right you won’t see the results you want to see and if you don’t drink that water you won’t get the results as fast as you want to get them.”

The mother-of-two also put her strong physique down to “intense” and competitive joint workouts with her American football player husband, Russell Wilson.

“It’s… what I like to call ‘good love competition,'” the 33-year-old laughed. “We motivate each other and it’s really fun.”

Gigi Hadid’s Instagram photo lawsuit battle dismissed

A judge has granted Gigi Hadid’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit with a paparazzi agency over an Instagram photo.

The model was accused of illegally profiting from the work of photographers at Xclusive-Lee, Inc. last year, but according to editors at People, the suit has been dropped.

U.S. District Judge Pamela Chen in Los Angeles reportedly sided with Hadid’s legal team and dismissed the case after the 24-year-old was accused of featuring images of herself on social media without permission.

She ruled that the independent photo agency company – that owned the photo of Hadid – could not sue for direct copyright infringement because it failed to demonstrate that “the defendant has actually copied the plaintiff’s work.”

Hadid’s legal representatives previously described the lawsuit as nothing more than an effort to extract money from her when the catwalk star was threatened with legal action in October after she shared a paparazzi photo of herself on Instagram.

The snap showed Hadid wearing a denim blazer and matching shorts, with silver high heels and a bag.

Bosses at Xclusive-Lee, Inc. subsequently sued her in January for failing to license the image from them or get their permission. They alleged that approximately 1.6 million people commented on or liked the model’s photo within four days after Hadid posted it on Instagram.

The firm was seeking damages for copyright infringement and any profits gained from the image, which was later removed from the social media site.

John Quinn, the attorney representing Hadid in the case, told People on Thursday that he was pleased the court “recognised this case for what it was – an effort to extract a settlement from Ms. Hadid with little regard for the basic requirements of copyright law.”

The case is now officially closed.

Ariel Winter felt like a ‘different person’ after dyeing hair red

Ariel Winter felt like a new person after she dyed her hair red.

The Modern Family actress often likes to experiment with her hair colour, and debuted her new copper locks on social media in May, with her caption referring to Ariel, the lead character in 1989 Disney animation The Little Mermaid.

In a new interview with People, the 21-year-old gushed that her experiment with red hair had been a complete success.

“It makes me feel like a new me,” she shared. “After I got it done, I was looking in the mirror and I felt like a completely different person. I was pretty shocked that my hair colour could make me look so different and a lot of people will not recognise me. They don’t piece it together because the hair looks so different for them, but I like it a lot.”

Ariel is best known for having the jet-black hair she sports as her character Alex Dunphy in the long-running sitcom, but she is actually a natural blonde.

“People never guess, but my natural hair colour is dirty blonde,” the star revealed. “I’ve always had dark eyebrows, so I was that person. I have dirty blonde hair and really dark eyebrows and dark eyes. I’ve dyed it so many times in the past so really the most important thing for me with my hair now is trying to keep my hair healthy.”

The actress has to keep her hair the same when she’s shooting the show, so she waits until filming is completed for each season to experiment with her tresses.

“I’m pretty adventurous with my hair, I’ll try a lot of things,” she added. “Alex doesn’t change up her look that much. I don’t experiment with it (on the show) so it’s fun for me to do it outside of work.”

Ariel has partnered with Ulta Beauty to promote the company’s new signature in-store blow-out services.

Joey King was forced to confront her true self after shaving off her hair for her latest role.

The actress has shorn off her locks several times, after landing parts that required a buzz-cut in The Dark Knight Rises, Wish I Was Here and most recently, TV series The Act.

And it was for the Hulu real-life drama, in which she played Gypsy Rose Blanchard, that prompted Joey to really think about how she felt about herself.

“I got rid of something that I usually hide behind, and that so many of us hide behind, and I was forced to confront myself and just be with myself with no hair,” she told People. “(Between that) and diving into such a complex character every day, I really just became my most confident and happy self.”

She also revealed that her family and friends were concerned about her shaving off her hair, as they were worried she would once again face a barrage of criticism from social media trolls.

“They were like, ‘Do you want to go through (that) again?’ But when I decided I was willing to take that risk, they were like, ‘All right, well then we are fully behind you.’ And I’m super thankful that they are,” the 19-year-old explained. “I remembered the way I felt when people said mean things when I was younger. But then I fully decided that I wanted to do it and when the day came along, I was like ‘Get this s**t off my head!'”

In addition, the young actress is one of five famous faces – including Juice hitmaker Lizzo – featured in Urban Decay’s new campaign, Pretty Different, which celebrates individuality and challenges stereotypes.

“I definitely own my uniqueness,” Joey shared, having rocked a pixie cut in the images. “I am very blunt and very honest. I don’t really have a filter.”

Vanessa Williams has made her new HSN fashion venture a family affair by enlisting her daughters and mother to help model the collection.

The actress and singer set out to create a line for women of all ages that features wearable everyday looks and sought her daughters Melanie Hervey and Sasha Fox as well as her mother Helen Williams.

“My brand is really about designing for myself and my family,” Williams told People magazine. “My mother (Helen) will be 80 in December, I have a 32-year-old (Melanie), a 30-year-old (Jillian Hervey) and 19-year-old daughter (Sasha) so I always kind of envision what they would like and have at least one piece (in the collection).

“It is fun to see my kids find themselves.”

While her family did serve as an inspiration for the line, Williams mostly drew on her own style preferences.

“I want to be able to wear it and I do wear my own stuff out on the street,” the 56-year-old said. “I also think about what I’m missing and what I need more of. If it’s a blazer – what’s the blazer that I don’t have that I’m missing?”

Williams, who previously launched a clothing line with Evine, has decided to launch seven pieces, including a sequin-lined blazer, belted jumpsuit, lace camis, and leopard-print wrap dresses.

“The sequins give it a little hint of sparkle but it’s not like you’re out at a black tie event,” she added of the biker jacket. “It’s one of those jackets that I wear pretty much all year round.”

All of the items have been crafted to fit a range of sizes from extra small to 3X.
