Ariel Winter has marked the end of Modern Family by ditching her signature dark hair and going strawberry blonde.

The 22-year-old has had to keep her hair dyed black since 2009 after landing the role of studious teen Alex Dunphy on the hit U.S. show.

But now that the award-winning comedy series has come to an end after 11 seasons, Ariel has opted to return to one of her favourite hair colours to celebrate being free to experiment with her locks once again.

“I’m a strawberry and a shortcake sooooo new nickname,” she cheekily captioned a photo on Instagram of her new strawberry blonde ‘do on Wednesday.

In a post earlier that same day, Ariel uploaded snaps of her posing in the hair salon and wrote: “Bye bye dark hair 🙂 I don’t think I’ll miss you :))).”

Ariel headed to Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles for her makeover, which took a whopping seven hours to complete.

And speaking to People.com, hairstylist Tabitha Duenas shared that her celebrity client had told her she “never wants to go back to black again”.

“With Modern Family’s long run ending, Ariel is finally free to have the hair colour she wants. She wanted to strip out the black and go back to her strawberry golden blonde look we had done previously when she was on break from filming,” Tabitha explained, noting that it took several rounds of lightening cream to strip out the black dye from her hair.

Previously, Ariel told the publication that she always gets a self-confidence boost when she gets her hair done.

“Every time I come out of getting my hair done, I feel like a new woman,” the star smiled. “I’m pretty adventurous with my hair, I’ll try a lot of things.”

Jessica Simpson’s seven-year-old daughter Maxwell has an eye for style.

The I Wanna Love You Forever singer launched The Jessica Simpson Collection of footwear back in 2006, but the line proved to be so successful that she quickly expanded into clothing, jewellery, and fragrances.

And while speaking as part of a recent panel event for Create & Cultivate in Los Angeles, Jessica revealed Maxwell is also a keen designer and sketches outfits for her stuffed animals.

“My oldest daughter is seven and she’s very into sketching,” she told the crowd, according to People.

Jessica went on to joke that the youngster assumes making a sketch means her mum can just “take it into the office and she’ll get it the next day”.

“But it’s actually a really beautiful and adorable thing,” the 39-year-old smiled. “Like right now, she’s really into her stuffed animals and dressing her stuffed animals. So, we have to have like a wedding coming up for her stuffed animals that are puppies. A fake puppy wedding with all gowns that she designed. It’s really pretty cute.

“So now maybe we need to go into some dog business or something.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Jessica revealed many of her business ideas come from her own life experiences, and claimed her most recent pregnancy with daughter Birdie, who she welcomed with husband Eric Johnson last March, gave her ideas for maternity fashion.

“When I was pregnant, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, there is nothing out there that is comfortable and cute.’ Like why in the world can’t I find a pair of jeans that I can be in all day long that are still fashion?” she recalled. “But that’s the thing. Through your experiences, through your life experiences, you can know what you have, you want to expand, and I’m always brand thinking.”

Hailey Bieber overhauled diet following Justin Bieber’s Lyme disease diagnosis

Hailey Bieber overhauled her diet after her husband Justin Bieber was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

The Yummy hitmaker revealed he was struggling with the condition, as well as a chronic viral infection, back in January, and told his fans he would be prioritising his health.

However, in a new interview with People, model Hailey explained that since the diagnosis, the couple has ditched junk food and are both focusing on eating “very clean” at home.

“It’s very funny because my husband was always the one who ate a lot of junk food,” she explained. “Then, when he was going through all this stuff with his health, he found out he was very allergic to gluten and had to completely cut it out.

“That changed his mood, the way he felt, his skin, everything.”

However, Hailey couldn’t help but turn her husband’s much-needed lifestyle changes into a competition.

“I just came to the conclusion that he was kicking my a*s in the health department. He quit caffeine, no dairy, no gluten. I was like, ‘You can’t be the one that’s the master eater in this household!” the 23-year-old laughed.

The pair relies on a chef at their Beverly Hills mansion to prepare the healthy and nutritious food, but Hailey still “really likes to cook”.

And the blonde beauty confessed she and her popstar beau much prefer to stay in, rather than go out to Hollywood parties and red carpet events.

“Justin and I are homebodies. When we first got married, I was still coming out of the phase where I liked to always be doing something,” she shared. “But now I’ve realised how much of a luxury it is to just be able to stay in on a Friday night with a fire going. Now, I will never go back!”

Gisele Bundchen underwent breast surgery because she was ‘trying to please’

Gisele Bundchen underwent breast surgery five years ago because she was “trying to please” others.

The Brazilian supermodel hit headlines in 2015 when she tried to evade the paparazzi by dressing in a burqa as she paid a visit to a plastic surgeon in Paris, but her attempts to fool waiting photographers failed after they identified her driver.

Gisele, who has previously expressed regrets about the procedure, has now addressed the incident in a new interview with Britain’s The Observer newspaper and shared that she didn’t do it for herself but because she was trying to please others.

“When I did that, I felt like I was trying to please. Because I was ‘the Body’ and… Look, I think if you do something because it is what you feel is your truth, then there is no problem,” she said. “Then whatever you do is going to bring you joy. But if you do it because it’s somebody else’s idea of you, that’s the problem. So that was another lesson that I’ve learned the hard way. I feel like today, where I’m at with my life, I don’t really care what anyone thinks. I care about living my truth. I care about being a great mother.”

The 39-year-old decided to get the procedure after breastfeeding her children Benjamin, 10, and Vivian, seven, for three years each.

“Yes, it’s going to make your body change. Yes, I can work out to be fit and feel good and rejuvenated, but I can’t change the fact that both my kids liked the left boob,” the model explained.

Gisele, who is married to American footballer Tom Brady, previously told People in 2018 that she wanted her breasts to be even and “for people to stop commenting on it”. She also insisted that she immediately regretted her decision when she woke up from the surgery.

“When I woke up, I was like, ‘What have I done?’ I felt like I was living in a body I didn’t recognise,” she confessed.

Adele has reportedly told a fan that she’s lost around 100 pounds (45 kilograms) in weight.

The Hello singer hit headlines last week when she was seen on the beach in Anguilla showcasing a noticeably slimmer frame as she holidayed alongside pals Harry Styles and James Corden.

During the vacation, Adele dined at a beachside restaurant, where she got chatting to two fans who asked her about her new look.

“Adele came over and sat down next to me and my friend and was like, ‘So what can I do for you girls?'” Lexi Larson told People. “We were so excited. We were talking to her for a little while, and then she got Harry Styles to come over and sit with us also. We took a picture with Harry, and we talked to them for 15 minutes probably.

“She said she lost something like 100 pounds and that it’s such a crazy positive experience. She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident.”

According to reports, Adele has been following The Sirtfood Diet, which encourages people to eat sirtuin activator foods that suppress the appetite, such as apples, citrus fruits, blueberries, green tea, olive oil, and kale.

The 31-year-old has also apparently been participating in Reformer Pilates classes and taking part in regular sessions with private trainer Dalton Wong.

Previously, Adele showed off her svelte new figure in some snaps posted on Instagram at Christmas time, one of which she showed her posing next to a person dressed as The Grinch.

The British star has been steadily shedding the pounds since she split from her long-term partner Simon Konecki, the father of her seven-year-old son Angelo, in April 2019.

Miley Cyrus has debuted an edgy “punk shag” hairstyle while teasing fans with promises of new music.

Back in December, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker revealed what her hairstylist Sally Hershberger called a “modern mullet”.

Now, Miley has gone even shorter with her new ‘do.

“New Hair. New Year. NEW MUSIC!” she captioned a trio of pictures on Instagram, which showed her wearing stonewash jeans, a lilac T-shirt, and black cowboy boots, complementing her bleach blonde hair.

And Sally, who was forced to defend the 27-year-old’s new look last month, told People that Miley wanted a low maintenance style.

“It’s a very fashion-forward look yet very no-fuss, both reflective of Miley’s personality,” the celebrity hair guru explained. “To get the edgy look, I point-cut her hair and then used a razor to slice it into a shag – it was a very organic process.”

She styled it by rough drying Miley’s hair, then used her 24K Vanity Hair Shaping Balm and 24K Golden Touch Nourishing Dry Oil to finish off the “piecy” look.

In response to the star’s new look, many of her friends and followers were quick to leave comments on her Instagram post.

“Do it, girl,” talkshow host Chelsea Handler wrote, while her brother Trace Cyrus joked: “Yooo cool mullet kid.”

Miley also made a drastic hairstyle change just before the release of her fourth studio album Bangerz in 2013. She stunned fans by cutting off her long brunette locks and debuted a short, platinum-blonde style.

The traditional Nigerian attire John Boyega wore at the London premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was designed by his sister.

The actor, who plays Finn in the sci-fi saga, paid a touching tribute to his family’s ancestry on Wednesday night by walking the red carpet in a royal blue Agbada robe with gold accents, completing his look with a matching traditional hat and black dress shoes.

He was joined at the high-profile event by his whole family, including his British Nigerian parents, Samson and Abigail, and sister Grace, who were all decked out in similar looks.

It’s since been revealed that his sibling Grace was the brains behind the whole wardrobe – and she was flattered to be entrusted with the task of dressing her loved ones for the big celebration.

“I’m grateful that my brother entrusted me to execute his vision for the premiere,” the fashion designer tells People.com. “I knew I was the right person to do it as I’ve always had a passion for fashion. I’ve learned from building my own brand that I had it in the bag.”

“We love being Nigerian!” she added. “This was an opportunity of a lifetime. I’m just happy my hard work paid off.”

Boyega shared a photo from the premiere on Instagram, showing him proudly decked out in the traditional clothing.

“Had an amazing time at the London premiere for Star Wars! Last leg of the tour! Couldn’t be more grateful for such an amazing opportunity,” he wrote.

He later posted another snap which featured his family posing on the blue carpet in their show-stopping outfits.

“Me and the whole fam at the London premiere for #theriseofskywalker last night!” Boyega wrote.

Chanel Iman has given birth to a baby girl.

The 29-year-old model announced the exciting news on Instagram on Tuesday, revealing to her followers that the newborn had arrived earlier than expected.

Posting a snap of her on a hospital bed cradling her new daughter alongside husband Sterling Shepard and their 16-month-old daughter Cali Clay, she shared her baby daughter’s winter-inspired name.

“Our Christmas gift came early,” she captioned the photo. “Cassie Snow Shepard 12*17*19.”

She later posted a snap of her holding both her girls while sat on the hospital bed and wrote in the caption, “This is Love” with a heart emoji.

Across the comments, Iman received messages from her fellow models, including Lily Aldridge, who wrote, “Omg (Oh my God) congratulations sweetest @chaneliman,” and pregnant Ashley Graham, who posted, “So sweet!!!!!”

The Victoria’s Secret model, who has walked in shows for Yeezy, Tommy Hilfiger and Jeremy Scott, has also created an Instagram account for the newborn.

Iman and Shepard, who plays in the National Football League (NFL) for the New York Giants, wed in an intimate ceremony at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles in March 2018.

Announcing the news of her second pregnancy, the model posted a sweet family photo in which she showed off her baby bump with a white crop top. “Excited to announce we will be a family of four soon,” Iman wrote.

The couple had previously discussed their plans to expand their family, telling People magazine shortly after Cali’s arrival that they were already keen for a second baby.

Kendall Jenner has dyed her hair a caramel shade.

The model turned to celebrity colourist Cassondra Kaeding to make the subtle yet stunning change to her locks, and showed off her new copper and caramel hue on Instagram earlier this week.

Cassondra later told People.com that the model was inspired to go for a warmer tone on her hair after she temporarily went blonde for the Burberry show during London Fashion Week in September.

“She loved the blonde but was so happy to be back to her natural hair colour. It will be less maintenance then staying blonde because her natural is dark,” she explained, noting that the ends of Kendall’s hair naturally began to turn a few shades lighter even after going back to brunette.

“After I took her from blonde to dark her ends started to naturally lighten up about a half a shade which she loved!” Cassondra shared. “So I suggested that we lighten her hair a bit more. My secret to achieving this look without damaging her hair was to not use any bleach but to balayage.”

While Kendall is hesitant to have her hair bleached again, Cassondra said the lighter tones in her hair will lift the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s natural eye colour and skin tone.

“Kendall is still in the brunette family, but is two levels lighter. This lightness gives her a little softness and is very complimentary to her eye colour and skin tone,” she added.

Lily Aldridge smelled the scent of a horse while creating her new perfume line.

The model launched her debut perfume, Haven, back in September, and recently released her second, muskier scent, Summit.

In a new interview with People Now!, the mother-of-two opened up about the development of her beauty brand and revealed that she was involved in the complex process from beginning to end.

“I did everything,” Lily explained of her hands-on approach to choosing the fragrances, adding that she was told to smell her shoulder in-between sniffing different scents to cleanse her palate.

And when asked about the strangest scent she had smelled during the creative process, she confessed it was something very unusual.

“When I went to the lab and I was creating, they were like, ‘You can bottle anything, the essence of anything,'” the 34-year-old explained. “So, I tried ‘horse’. The smell of a horse. It smelled just like a horse had been running through the fields.

“It didn’t smell great. But the second I smelt it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is a horse. I can see it.’ It was crazy.”

Describing her second perfume, Summit, as a “warm hug”, Lily noted that even her Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill is a fan of the spicy fragrance, as it features notes of leather, tobacco, and cardamom.

Summit, and Lily’s debut fragrance Haven, priced at $50 (£37) each, are available to buy from her website.
