Dua Lipa’s boyfriend Anwar Hadid has been dyeing her hair a new colour every week during lockdown.

The New Rules singer, who has been self-isolating with the model in London, debuted pink hair on social media back in April and has been changing it up ever since, with her showing off an orange and a red hue over the past few months.

In an interview with British Vogue magazine, the 24-year-old shared that Anwar, the brother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, has been heavily involved in the dyeing process.

“I’m with my boyfriend Anwar… Anwar has been dyeing my hair all kinds of colours – pink, orange, red – it has been a different colour every week,” she told the magazine.

For the new issue of the fashion bible, a range of stars including Ricky Martin and Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra sent in pictures depicting their life in lockdown. In Dua and Anwar’s photo, the couple can be seen posing on a sofa in the middle of playing an X-Box game. She is wearing multi-coloured crotchet shorts and a cropped black jumper bearing a white smiley face, while Anwar sports a Metallica T-shirt and sweatpants.

Elsewhere in the interview, Dua shared that they have also been spending time during lockdown learning new recipes.

“Yesterday we made lamb maeloubah – Anwar’s dad sent us the recipe,” she said. “It was fun to cook together, which is lucky because it was a three-hour activity; it’s the most ambitious thing I have ever set out to make.. It’s quite rewarding when it turns out like the picture. Today I’m making a leek stew my mum would cook, which really takes me back to my childhood.”

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss have returned to the set of The Matrix 4 following the Covid-19 lockdown.

The cast and crew had been busy shooting the hotly-anticipated sequel in Germany when the worldwide health pandemic forced the set to shut down in March earlier this year.

After adhering to stringent safety guidelines, production is back up and running this week, much to the delight of fans of the sci-fi series, which last hit cinema screens in 2003.

Reeves and Moss were seen reprising their iconic roles of Neo and Trinity on location in Berlin earlier this week, in a series of photos released by TMZ. Neil Patrick Harris, who is a new addition to the cast, was also spotted getting back into character on the set. Little is known about his role in the latest installment, leading to fierce speculation among movie fans.

Jada Pinkett Smith, Priyanka Chopra, Jonathan Groff and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will also feature.

The Matrix 4 is directed by Lana Wachowski from a script she co-wrote with Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. She is hoping to follow on from the success of it’s predecessors The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. The original film, which came out in 1999, took home four Oscars, winning in all of the categories it was nominated for.

The film had already been forced to delay its release date from May 2021 to April 2022 due to the global health crisis.

Priyanka Chopra has been wearing Christian Louboutin heels with her loungewear to help her feel glamorous during the coronavirus lockdown.

In a new interview with InStyle magazine, the Quantico actress discussed her relationship with the iconic footwear designer and revealed that she’s taken to slipping on a red-soled pump to try and jazz up her usual daytime look.

“They look good with sweatpants!” she laughed. “If you want to feel a little bit more normal right now, you wear an amazing pair of Louboutins with your sweatshirt, put your hair down, add some red lipstick – and you’re dressed up for dinner.”

Chopra has been self-isolating at home with her husband Nick Jonas since March, as the Jonas Brother musician suffers from diabetes – one of the underlying health conditions that could increase his chances of contracting Covid-19.

Elsewhere in the chat, Chopra also recalled the first time she wore a pair of the Frenchman’s designs, and said she was inspired to buy a pair after watching an episode of Sex and the City, in which Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw showcased her extensive collection of the expensive shoes.

“I was like, ‘These are SJP’s!” the 37-year-old joked. “I was really excited about it.”

The former Bollywood star struck up a friendship with Louboutin, and the designer even created several custom pairs of shoes for her when she tied the knot with Jonas in late 2018.

“I did some things that held the ankle with a mid-heel,” the fashion star explained. “And then for emergencies I added some sets of sandals the colour of her skin with gold inside.”

Priyanka Chopra has teamed up with bosses at Crocs to give shoes to healthcare workers in India and Los Angeles.

The Quantico actress took to Instagram on Wednesday to voice her support for frontline health workers, who are under immense pressure as they attend to patients afflicted with the Covid-19 virus.

Paying tribute to medical teams with a short video clip, Chopra wrote in the caption: “Healthcare professionals around the world are working every day to ensure our safety and fighting for us on the frontlines. Their courage, commitment, and sacrifices are saving innumerable lives in this global pandemic.”

Cases of coronavirus continue to rise, with the rate of global infections reaching an estimated 2.6 million and more than 184,000 confirmed fatalities.

Adding “while we cannot even imagine what’s it like to be in their shoes”, Chopra announced that she will present thousands of pairs of Crocs to hospital staff.

Approximately 10,000 pairs will be given to workers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and a further 10,000 more to healthcare professionals in hospitals across India.

The 37-year-old credited executives at Crocs with initiating the idea, as they had already given away thousands of pairs of the foam resin clogs to U.S. healthcare workers under the brand’s “Free Pair for Healthcare” scheme. Crocs are popular with healthcare workers, who enjoy the footwear for its comfort and durability throughout long shifts.

Chopra became a Crocs brand ambassador in October 2019 and starred in the company’s latest “Come As You Are” campaign.

In December, through her connections with multilateral aid organisation UNICEF, the star also facilitated the donation of 50,000 pairs of Crocs to school children in Belize.

Diane von Furstenberg has debuted her first-ever podcast series on Spotify.

The iconic designer has kicked off the InCharge with DVF series by interviewing the likes of Kris Jenner, Priyanka Chopra, Project Runway’s Elaine Welteroth and supermodel Karlie Kloss.

Regarding the venture, Furstenberg noted in a chat with People that she was inspired by each of the women, and sat down individually with them to have “intimate conversations about the journey of life and survival”.

“I wanted to interview these women that I had met, and that I know, who are strong, and have these conversations with them,” she told the publication. “I wanted to show not just what they have accomplished, but where they came from, where it all started.

“When you put women in an intimate context, it doesn’t matter how successful they are. They are warm and they talk openly about their experience and the challenges, and that is what is inspiring.”

Furstenberg heaped praise on each of her guests and described them all as being “very open”. The fashion star also claimed to be in awe of the Kardashian/Jenner family matriarch.

“I mean, Kris is a superwoman; each of her children are so successful. So, it was a very interesting conversation,” the 73-year-old added.

Furstenberg went on to share her adoration for Chopra, and insisted the Quantico star was more than just her looks.

“Everybody knows she’s beautiful, she’s married (to Nick Jonas) and this and that, but Priyanka is incredibly intelligent and she has a lot to talk about,” she gushed.

Priyanka Chopra has signed up to play real-life bioterrorist Ma Anand Sheela in a new movie for Amazon Studios.

According to editors at Deadline, the 37-year-old actress will take on the lead role in the project, titled Sheela, with Barry Levinson to direct.

The film is to document the story of how the unassuming woman managed to carry out the largest biological terrorist attack ever conducted in the U.S.

Sheela was arrested and jailed after she was convicted of conspiring to poison local restaurants in Wasco County, Oregon with salmonella in 1984 in an effort to fix a local election.

She also served as the personal secretary to Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, the guru and leader of the Rajneesh movement, and was also allegedly involved in immigration fraud, arson, espionage, and wiretapping.

Sheela’s story was thrust back into the spotlight in 2018 thanks to the Netflix documentary series Wild Wild Country, which focused on the conflict between the movement and locals and officials in Oregon.

David Permut is set to produce alongside Chopra, Levinson, and Jason Sosnoff, while the script will be written by Nick Yarborough, who is currently working on the upcoming Training Day prequel.

It’s a busy year ahead for Chopra, who is not only starring in Robert Rodriguez’s Netflix film We Can Be Heroes, but is also set to appear in the upcoming The Matrix reboot.

It was reported in January that the Baywatch star will be joining original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, as well as newcomers Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Neil Patrick Harris, for the fourth instalment in the sci-fi franchise, directed by Lana Wachowski.

Celebrities including Ava DuVernay, Sandra Oh, and Priyanka Chopra took to social media on Sunday night to celebrate Parasite becoming the first foreign language film to win the Oscar for Best Picture.

Bong Joon Ho’s South Korean thriller was the underdog going into the ceremony and wasn’t expected to win much more than the Best International Feature Film category, but ended up sweeping the event with four wins, also including Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, and the night’s coveted Best Picture prize, which had been widely expected to go to 1917.

Social media users and celebrities alike were thrilled with the surprising and historic wins, with director DuVernay tweeting, “MASSIVE! HISTORIC! LANDMARK! PARASITE! The world is big and it is beautiful and films from everywhere deserve to be on that stage winning @TheAcademy’s highest honour. This is wonderful and right. #Oscars.”

Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu wrote, “Parasite Parasite Parasite Parasite!!!! Oh my gawwwdddd Parasite did it (sic)!!!! Director Bong did it!! The whole insanely talented cast did it!! South Korea did it. History made. Heading out to celebrate all night!!!” while Killing Eve star Oh posted, “Congratulations @ParasiteMovie So so proud to be Korean.”

Indian actress Chopra added, “Wow! It’s so emotional to see an international film like Parasite, in Korean with English subtitles, not only receive such a warm embrace from audiences around the world, but also this kind of recognition from one of the most prestigious film academy’s (sic) in the world… Congratulations to the entire film for shattering the glass ceiling and making history as the first non-English film to win Best Picture.”

South Korean President Moon Jae-in also offered up his congratulations on social media, thanking Joon Ho for giving “pride and courage” to the country’s people.

Earlier in the night, as the filmmaker accepted the Best Director prize, he told the audience, “After winning Best International Feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax. Thank you so much… I never thought I would win.”

He let other members of the Parasite team speak following the Best Picture win but told reporters backstage that the film’s Oscars haul was “really f**king crazy”.

Priyanka Chopra is reportedly in final talks to join The Matrix 4.

The fourth movie was announced back in August, with co-creator Lana Wachowski at the helm and original stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith reprising their roles of Neo, Trinity, and Niobe, respectively.

According to editors at Variety, Chopra will join Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jessica Henwick as the newest additions to the Matrix franchise.

The 37-year-old actress, who is no stranger to action movies thanks to her role in Baywatch alongside Dwayne Johnson, has yet to comment on the reports.

Castmembers have been taking part in lengthy fight training sessions since early December ahead of production on the Warner Bros. film, which is set to begin soon in northern California.

Meanwhile, Reeves has been training with his co-stars on The Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 simultaneously, Variety reports.

The sci-fi franchise began back in 1999 with The Matrix and followed the story of Neo, Trinity and Morpheus, played by Laurence Fishburne, who try to break free of a virtual reality system that is guarded by Hugo Weaving’s sinister artificial intelligence programme, Agent Smith.

The 59-year-old Australian actor recently announced he wouldn’t be reprising his role for the fourth instalment due to scheduling conflicts, as he’s due to appear on the London stage alongside Lesley Manville in The Visit.

“I was in touch with Lana Wachowski, but in the end, she decided that the dates weren’t going to work. So, we’d sorted the dates and then she sort of changed her mind. They’re pushing on ahead without me,” Weaving explained to Time Out.

The Matrix 4 is scheduled to hit cinemas in May 2021.

Following the ceremony held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Italian designer, who oversees the Versace fashion house, took to Instagram to share images of the celebrities her team had outfitted for the annual music bash.

Alongside a snap of Lil Nas X in a hot pink suit and matching cowboy hat, she wrote, “Breathtaking @lilnasx … such a look!! Love it!!” while beside a picture of Lizzo rocking an Old Hollywood-inspired strapless white gown, the fashion star praised: “Such a #RedCarpet dream… Perfection! Lizzo!”

Elsewhere, members of the Versace atelier made the black ballgown sported by Camila Cabello for her red carpet entrance, as well as the lilac dress she wore to perform First Man during the show, and the sexy canary yellow number she slipped into later on.

Other designers to make outfits for multiple artists included Christian Siriano, who dreamed up glamorous looks for the likes of Shania Twain, Best New Artist nominee YOLA, Lizzo, and Demi Lovato.

“Demi, it was an honour to create for you tonight and WOW that was unbelievable! Love you!” he captioned a picture of the singer sporting a white ballgown while performing her new song Anyone.

Jennifer Lopez pulled out all of the stops for the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday night.

The superstar, who was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture category for her role in Hustlers, turned up to The Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California rocking a custom-made white silk Valentino gown with dramatic gold and green bow detailing on the bodice.

Jennifer topped off her look with Harry Winston jewellery, a Judith Leiber bag, and had her brunette locks swept back into a plaited bun – with the hairstyle reminiscent of the look she wore in a key scene in her 2002 film Maid in Manhattan.

The actress, who lost out to Laura Dern for her performance in Marriage Story, was styled by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, and accompanied by her sportsman fiance Alex Rodriguez on the red carpet. Alex sported a tuxedo for the night, and in a post on Instagram, joked that he looked like the 50-year-old entertainer’s security guard.

“Head of @jlo security, reporting for red carpet duty! @goldenglobes,” he wrote.

Apart from Jennifer’s eye-catching ballgown, a major trend for the night was the colour pink.

Priyanka Chopra, who served as a presenter, opted for a stunning pastel pink off-the-shoulder Cristina Ottaviano dress with delicate drapery. She completed the ensemble with Christian Louboutin shoes and Bulgari bling.

Meanwhile, Tiffany Haddish stood out in a pink Galia Lahav dress, Isla Fisher made a statement in a fuchsia Monique Lhuillier gown, and Adam Driver’s wife Joanne Tucker sported a hot pink silk outfit with high neck and oversized sleeves.
