Mandy Moore has noticed a “world of difference” in her health since overhauling her diet.

The singer/actress is one of the busiest women in Hollywood at the moment, as she is juggling her commitments to hit TV show This Is Us with her upcoming comeback music tour – her first in a decade.

But in a new interview with People, Mandy explained that she has had more energy to tackle her various projects ever since she ditched certain foods.

“I try to make a good point of knowing what I’m putting in my body because I understand the connection with how I feel,” she said. “I went to a functional medicine doctor and figured out things that are definitely not making me feel great. Random things like cow’s milk, gluten, salmon, soy and apricots. I took them out of my diet and it’s made a world of difference. I have more energy; I don’t have that fog and my digestive issues have pretty much resolved themselves.”

Mandy went on to explain that she now feels better in her mid-thirties than she ever did in her twenties.

And in addition to supplementing her diet with vitamins from wellness company Nature’s Way, the star takes time to meditate when she has free time.

“It’s about how you speak to yourself and how you speak about others,” the 35-year-old insisted. “I’m making sure I’m focused on self-care as well.”

Earlier this week, Mandy announced her plans to tour the U.S. in 2020. Dates begin at the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on 20 March.

“I am thrilled to put together an intimate, elevated evening of new and old tunes, performed with a superb group of musicians,” she said in a statement. “I want the show to have threads of what the writing and recording process was like with this band, almost like you’ve been invited in our living room for an inside glimpse.”

Scarlett Johansson regrets attending the 2004 Tony Awards with a crimped hairstyle.

The Avengers: Endgame actress opened up to People about her biggest beauty disaster, and revealed that it was back in 2004 when she attended the Tony Awards.

Scarlett went on to explain that she had asked to look like one of her acting heroes and instead ended up rocking an out-of-date crimped hairstyle as she hit the red carpet wearing a fitted, floor-length black gown.

“There was a year that I went to the Tony Awards – I must have been 19 or 20. I wanted a hairstyle that looked like Jean Harlow’s. It looked like a crimping iron,” the 34-year-old stated. “Basically, a crimping iron was taking a stand on my head.”

“Yeah, it was electrical socket crazy,” Scarlett joked, before adding that her hair fail now “lives on the interweb forever.”

Scarlett is no stranger to experimenting with her hair and has dyed her tresses a fiery red, blonde, brunette and changed up her styles with long flowing locks to short pixie cuts over the years.

“The best thing about hair colour is that it’s only temporary,” she told InStyle magazine in 2017, before explaining that she’s mainly switched up her hair because of a movie role.

The mother-of-one rocked red hair to play Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and the subsequent Avengers movies, while she chopped off her hair to star in upcoming Noah Baumbach-directed Netflix film, Marriage Story.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has candidly spoken about her ongoing battle with acne.

The British model previously suffered from the common skin condition when she was younger but managed to keep it under control after doing endless research into what products she needed to use in order to get rid of the congestion.

“For me, skincare is where it all starts. But I want to be really clear: I do not have perfect skin,” she told People magazine. “It’s like research for me. I’m very invested in learning as much as I can about skincare.”

Rosie is a devotee of luxury skincare brand iS CLINICAL, as it doesn’t include any compounds that will irritate her sensitive complexion.

“I have this list of ingredients that really, really inflame acne or congest the skin. It’s like my Bible,” the 32-year-old shared. “No product comes close to my skin if it’s got comedogenic properties or ingredients in it.”

However, Rosie stopped using the high-end products when she was pregnant.

“I had flawless skin throughout my pregnancy, so I sort of deviated away from using an (iS CLINICAL) product I had been using for years,” she explained.

Rosie and her actor fiance Jason Statham welcomed son Jack in 2017. Yet, the blonde beauty soon discovered that her acne was returning.

“I couldn’t figure out what was going on. So, I went back and started to use iS CLINICAL exclusively again and not only saw my skin change within a matter of days, but it’s better than ever,” the star insisted.

Anwar Hadid sews his own clothes to keep his personal style unique to him.

The 20-year-old, who is the face of Valentino’s new Born in Roma Uomo fragrance, revealed he wanted to be a designer before he became a model and still puts his skills into practice to keep his style unique.

“I sew my own clothes. I’ve always loved all different types,” Anwar told People magazine. “I like to express myself in whatever I feel suits my energy at that point. I just kind of do whatever makes me happy. Everyone is allowed to express themselves freely.

“I learned a lot about design through modelling. I wanted to be a designer in 2014 before I wrote music or modelled or anything like that. I have a project coming out in the next couple of months with shirts, which is exciting.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Anwar revealed the advice he got from his big sisters, models Gigi and Bella, when he started out in the industry.

“Try to be yourself and be confident and comfortable. Also, wear the clothes and don’t let them wear you. For modelling, you’re an extension of someone else’s creation and vision. You have to honour that,” he explained.

While his career begins to skyrocket, Anwar makes sure he takes time out to relax.

“I use essential oils. I put some in my hand (and smell it) or in a diffuser. That’s something I like to do every day. I’m really drawn to eucalyptus and lavender,” he said, before adding that he deals with fame by surrounding himself with family and friends.

“Honestly, I feel like I’m still the same person that I’ve been since I was young,” he insisted.

Irina Shayk: ‘Women get better with age’

Irina Shayk believes women get wiser and more beautiful with age.

The 33-year-old model has opened up about her almost two-decade-long career in a chat with People and insisted her personality is the secret to her youthful appearance and longevity in the fashion industry.

“I think women are like a good wine: better with age, wiser and (make) better decisions in life,” Shayk told the publication. “I think a woman just has to feel she never ages inside. It’s all about personality. It’s all about how you take life in and send the energy out there.

“I’m (nearly) 34 and I’m so lucky to be working.”

And the notoriously private star, who shares two-year-old daughter Lea with ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper, tries to follow valuable advice from her Russian mother when it comes to her personal life.

“Sometimes different work and personal life things come up and you want to go full-on Russian,” she joked. “My mom said one thing to me that I remember from many years ago… ‘Whatever happens in life, remember you have to be a lady.'”

Shayk recently teamed up with Italian cashmere brand Falconeri to be the face of their new ad campaign, and she confessed that she refuses to work with any brand of fashion house unless she can “fully connect” with them.

“I don’t want to work and be (the) face of the brands that I truly don’t represent from the inside out – I’m really looking for high quality and the message behind (a campaign),” she explained.

Heidi Klum’s Halloween costume will take 10 hours to assemble

Heidi Klum has revealed her Halloween costume this year will take “10 hours” to put on.

The model and TV personality has become known for going all out with her fancy dress for her annual Halloween party, with her previous costumes including Hindu goddess Kali, Cleopatra, Jessica Rabbit, and the werewolf from Michael Jackson’s Thriller video.

Last year, she attended with now-husband Tom Kaulitz in full prosthetics as ogres Princess Fiona and Shrek from the hit animated franchise, and Heidi is going above and beyond for the upcoming 20th anniversary of her Halloween party.

“I’m gonna have a hard time walking, and it’ll take a really long time. It will be a couples’ costume!” she told People, before adding that it will take “10 hours” to put on.

However, the Tokio Hotel musician’s outfit will be much easier this time around, after he found the Shrek prosthetics overwhelming last year.

“His is gonna be easier (than mine this year) because last year I felt so bad for him,” Heidi explained. “He had never done this before, and it was harder for him than for me because he had the big belly and the face. I’m used to it, but he was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna die! It’s so hot!'”

Despite freaking out, the 30-year-old rocker took it all in his stride.

“He loved it. He’s just as nuts as me, but I had to come up with something a little easier for him to wear this time around,” the former Project Runway star shared.

And the 46-year-old also revealed she will be doing a live performance in the window of Amazon’s New York store, so fans will be able to see her getting ready for the Halloween bash.

“People walking by can see, shop, have lunch and come back, and I’ll still be sitting there in that window getting ready,” she laughed.

Joan Smalls is certain her multicultural heritage has aided her modelling career.

The model, who is of West Indian and Puerto Rican descent, has opened up about her background in a new interview with People.com and explained that while the fashion industry is facing criticism for lack of diversity, she feels that her ethnicity has always allowed her to stand out from the crowd.

“(It) has helped my career because it makes you different than everybody else,” Smalls told the publication. “However, she complained that “people love to put people in boxes”, and added: “Sometimes they can’t wrap their head around a person being two different cultures.”

The brunette beauty, who said she will “always and forever” be a proud Puerto Rican, also revealed that it was normal growing up in a home where she and her family spoke two languages.

“I grew up in a household where my father was black and my mother was Puerto Rican so it was always my norm… being black, being Hispanic and being able to speak both languages. Those are my roots,” the 31-year-old explained.

And Smalls is hopeful that diversity will soon become less of an issue in the fashion world.

“The fact that the fashion industry is embracing more individuals who don’t particularly fit the stereotype is beautiful. I hope it continues… and it’s not just fashion people riding a wave because they might get called out on social media,” she stated.

Zendaya has described the process of perfecting her make-up looks as a matter of “trial-and-error”.

The Spider-Man: Far from Home actress is well-known for her flawless style at film premieres and fashion shows. However, Zendaya has now divulged that she’s tried plenty of different looks – and products – to nail her ideal make-up.

“It’s really about trying, failing, and trying again,” she told People. “Over time, learning to do my make-up became about taking different techniques, and products, from people I liked and putting them into my Rolodex. Then it was a matter of trial-and-error. I’d go out on the red carpet and later look at photos. Sometimes, I’d be like, ‘Ooh, I look like a ghost,’ so then I’d fix it the next time around.”

Back in February, the Euphoria star landed her role as an ambassador for Lancome, and recently fronted the campaign for the French beauty brand’s new fragrance Idole.

Zendaya opened up about her choice to join the iconic company, and fellow Lancome ambassadors such as Julia Roberts, Isabella Rossellini, and Penelope Cruz, and explained that it came down to diversity.

“They’ve always had a wide range of foundation shades for women of all different skin tones. It was really important to me to align myself with a brand that was already doing that. I didn’t want to have to get there and be like, ‘Excuse me, but I think you need to do this,'” the 23-year-old shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, Zendaya shared her top tips for flawless skin, and noted she sometimes switches up her skincare products to make them more effective.

“Usually I’ll just cleanse, tone, moisturise, and move on. Sometimes it’s fun to treat yourself with a little facial before bed,” she added.

Ryan Gosling is “always in awe” of the amount of work his partner Eva Mendes puts into her clothing collection.

The Hitch star has been designing with American label New York & Company for six years, and she has now sweetly revealed that her beau is her biggest fan.

“Ryan is incredibly supportive and he’s always in awe,” Mendes told People, before adding that the Oscar-nominated actor has already picked out his favourite pieces from her recent collection.

“He’s been loving the pants I’ve been doing,” she shared. “I’ve been getting into pants more, especially soft pants like joggers.”

Gosling also has to remind Mendes of all the hard work she puts into designing each of the pieces in the Eva Mendes Collection.

“He makes me realise that (making the collection) is actually a lot of work,” the 45-year-old said. “I have so much fun doing it, that I don’t really realise.”

Mendes is constantly inspired by the women in her family and confessed that an old photograph of her mother in the 1980s directly influenced the creation of a silk blouse and matching trousers for her latest line.

“Ryan’s mom, Ryan’s sister, my mom, my sisters, my grandma are all my fashion guinea pigs,” the mother-of-two continued. “Nobody is going to be more honest than family, and our family is very honest. It’s something I really appreciate because when designing something, you need real feedback.

“And then of course when you see your family in one of your dresses, your creations, it’s beautiful, because you know they’re not doing you any favours.”

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.
