Maddie Ziegler has launched her debut make-up collaboration with Morphe.

The So You Think You Can Dance judge, and star of Sia’s music videos, has teamed up with the cult make-up brand for the Morphe x Maddie Ziegler Imagination Collection.

Maddie, 17, has created a kaleidoscope-inspired series of products, including 20 shades of eyeshadow for the Imagination Artistry Palette, three multi-use Lip & Cheek Kits, and the luminous Dew Bomb Face Gloss Stick.

The teenager is a self-confessed make-up obsessive, and her first-ever cosmetics collection reflects her passions, as she’s even debuted her illustration skills by designing the front of the eyeshadow palette.

Maddie’s on the go beauty essential, the Dew Bomb Face Gloss Stick, $15/£12, is described as the “dewiest highlight ever”, while her Lip & Cheek Kits, $23/£18, feature a lightweight Wondertint creme blush, alongside an ultra-luscious Glaze Dreams gloss, which is available in three colourways.

The former Dance Moms star spoke to Glamour U.K. about the collaboration, and said she’s been desperate to create her own cosmetics since she was a little girl.

“I already had so many ideas myself so when Morphe reached out it all just fell right into place. I’ve been such a fan of Morphe for so long so I couldn’t have been more honoured to create a collection with them,” she gushed.

The Morphe x Maddie Ziegler Imagination Collection launches on uk.morphe.com on 25 June.

Maddie Ziegler has been welcomed into the Fabletics family after co-designing a new line for Kate Hudson’s sporty brand.

Dropping on Friday, the Maddie X Fabletics collection features leggings and T-shirts, and the Dance Moms star happily models some of her designs in a campaign video, which she uploaded to her 13 million followers.

Decked out in pink leggings and a grey T-shirt tied up at the back, the 16-year-old shows off her moves in the promo clip.

She follows in the footsteps of Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Kate’s mother Goldie Hawn in teaming up with the activewear label.

The official Fabletics account also shared the news, writing “#MaddieXFabletics available June 7 @maddieziegler,” next to a second video of the dancer.

Maddie rose to fame as a child on Lifetime’s reality show Dance Moms but became a global star after Australian singer Sia began working with her in 2014, casting her in a string of her music videos, including Chandelier, Elastic Heart and Big Girls Cry.

In recent years, the teenager has moved into acting, landing parts in The Book of Henry and animated flick Ballerina, as well as the upcoming West Side Story remake and Sia’s big screen directorial debut, Music, which also stars Kate.

In a previous chat with Cosmopolitan, Kate revealed how close she and Sia had become during filming.

“Working with Sia on a special project and knowing that no matter what, I will always have a lifelong friend in her,” she gushed.

Music, which also stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Hector Elizondo, is due out later this year.

Sia gave Christian Siriano two days to create wedding dress

Pop star Sia gave fashion designer Christian Siriano the challenge of a lifetime, asking him to create her wedding dress just two days before her nuptials.

The Chandelier hitmaker, who is notoriously private, has been close friends with Siriano for several years, but she didn’t give him much notice when it came to creating her dream gown for her big day back in 2014 – and yet he somehow managed to pull it all off.

Sia and Siriano recalled the last-minute rush they faced in the lead up to her wedding to director Erik Anders Lang at her home in Palm Springs, California, in a joint chat with InStyle magazine.

“‘You’ve got two days to make me a wedding dress!'” she remembered telling Christian. “‘We’re getting married, like, tomorrow!'”

Luckily, the designer, who rose to fame after winning reality show Project Runway in 2008, was used to working under pressure, and delivered not just once, but twice.

“So he whipped me up two (dresses), which I wore,” Sia shared. “It was a great wedding. I felt amazing. I felt really gorgeous. It was such a whirlwind!”

“That was a fun phone call,” Siriano quipped.

Neither Sia nor Siriano have revealed what the finished outfits looked like, but despite the bride’s joy at how the gowns turned out, the marriage didn’t last – she split from Erik in December, 2016.

The singer isn’t the only celebrity client Siriano has dressed for their big day – he also provided a custom design for model and actress Lydia Hearst when she tied the knot with U.S. comedian Chris Hardwick in August, 2016, and he dressed Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley and her partner Lauren Morelli for their nuptials in 2017.

Peter Rabbit producers apologise over allergy bullying scene

Peter Rabbit producers have issued an apology after facing backlash over a scene involving a food allergy.

The character of Tom McGregor (voiced by Domhnall Gleeson), who is the nephew of Peter’s enemy Mr. McGregor(Sam Neill), is allergic to blueberries in the new film, and is ambushed by a group of rabbits who proceed to throw blueberries at him. The gang, who are aware of Tom’s allergy, even shoot one into his mouth, which results in Tom growing ill and shooting himself in the leg with an EpiPen.

Groups representing allergy sufferers have condemned the scene in the Beatrix Potter adaptation and a #boycottpeterrabbit hashtag was adopted by many Twitter users.

Sony Pictures has now responded to the criticism.

“We sincerely regret not being more aware and sensitive to this issue, and we truly apologise,” a statement released by the company reads, with representative’s adding that it was wrong for the filmmakers to include the sketch “even in a cartoonish, slapstick way”.

A petition was created by group Global Anaphylaxis Awareness and Inclusivity (Globalaai), a worldwide allergy and anaphylaxis movement, who called on Sony Pictures to be made accountable for the “socially irresponsible depiction” of food allergies which “mocks” the seriousness of the condition.

The petition has so far been signed by almost 10,000 people.

Additionally, charity Kids with Food Allergies Foundation criticised the movie by claiming that “food allergy ‘jokes’ are harmful to our community” in a post on the organisation’s Facebook account, while U.S. group Food Allergy Research & Education also posted a warning to members over the content of the film.

Peter Rabbit was released in U.S. cinemas on Friday (09Feb18) to mixed reviews. James Corden, Sia, and Margot Robbie also lend their vocal talents to the feature.
