On one hand, you want to wear a red carpet-worthy hairstyle like Zendaya‘s cornrow braids. On the other, you have to leave for work or school in ten minutes. Say good-bye to the style that will make your crush swoon and hello to that messy bun—the struggle is real.
Unless, of course, you have Kérastase Celebrity Hairstylist Jennifer Yepez at your side. With Zendaya, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba as clients, this beauty pro knows how to get remarkably beautiful looks done fast. These ladies have places to go and people to meet.
“Sometimes the look you need to create takes two hours, but you only have 30 min to finish the look,” she told E! News. “When this happens, you have to choose what the necessary steps are and what steps can you leave out, all while still getting the same outcome.”
In the March issue of O, The Oprah Magazine (on newsstands Feb. 13), Oprah Winfrey interviews actresses Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon, her co-stars in Ava DuVernay‘s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. The trio talk openly about how the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up initiative have impacted Hollywood—and, by extension, women across all industries.
“What’s the most difficult decision you’ve had to make to fulfill your destiny?” Winfrey asks.
“For me, probably leaving an abusive relationship,” Witherspoon replies, adding that she endured both “psychological” and “verbal” abuse. “I drew a line in the sand, and it got crossed, and my brain just switched. I couldn’t go any further. I was really young, and it was profound.”
Without delving into the specific details, Witherspoon explains, “It changed who I was on a cellular level, the fact that I stood up for myself. It’s part of the reason I can stand up and say, ‘Yes, I’m ambitious.’ Because someone tried to take that from me.” It was a watershed moment for Witherspoon, who a few years ago was celebrated for saying, “Ambition is not a dirty word.”
“We were out looking at apartments. She was a client and we started becoming friends. We were just laughing and crazy stuff started happening to us. Like, we were peeing in urinals one day,” Eklund explained before Frankel quickly cut him off.
“We were not peeing in urinals. We were looking at an apartment that had urinals in it and we imagined what it would be like if we were peeing side by side. I don’t have a penis. That didn’t happen on this show,” Frankel made clear. “And believe me the Real Housewives would’ve called that out, if I had a dick. But anyway.” LOL!
While viewers were learning just how Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) died during This Is Us’ big post-Super Bowl episode, the show slipped in something major: another timeline. No, it’s not an alternate reality, This Is Us actually showed a grown up Tess (Iantha Richardson) and an old Randall (Sterling K. Brown).
“One of our big new turns started at the end of last night’s episode. We show a new timeline, in the future, which is extremely exciting for a show that plays in time and has till-now played in the past/present,” creator Dan Fogelman told Deadline. “But there is other stuff coming, too…there is a plan for the show, there always has been, we aren’t just shooting from the hip.”
Meanwhile, big brother Rob Kardashian kicked off the little lady’s first birthday celebration with jumbo balloons spelling out “Happy Birthday.”
“So proud of you,” BFF Jordyn Woods wrote in a message to her gal pal. “Love you!! Wifey.”
Arguably the most sentimental—and lavish—floral arrangement came from Kylie’s beau, Travis Scott, who sent along 443 roses to mark the time their daughter was born.
“443 from my [heart] a few days ago the time she was born,” Kylie explained on Snapchat.
Katy Perry has had a dream career.
She’s performed at the 2015 Super Bowl; she’s sold millions of albums; and she’s now a judge on the new season of American Idol. However, the 33-year-old artist wants to focus on balancing her personal life with her career.
“A lot of my early twenties were really intense, really extreme, and somewhat unconscious,” the “Roar” singer told Glamour magazine. “It was all career focused, which was great, but once you touch the ceiling so many times, it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, I did that. I touched the ceiling.’ Now I want to touch the stars, which has to do with the heart.”
Perry is ready for a “big soul overhaul” and wants to let go of some “childhood trauma.”
“I want to grow into becoming an adult,” she told the magazine. “I’m preparing myself for having a family of my own someday. And that’s the thing: I want to do a little bit more soul surgery before I have a family of my own so that I don’t transfer any of those lingering feelings. I’m about to go heavy into that emotional process, and I’m nervous, but I don’t think I have a choice anymore.”
While the journey won’t be easy, Perry knows it’s critical for her career.
“This last year has been about killing my ego, which has been really necessary for my career,” she said. “But for my personal life, it doesn’t work that way. If I want to have that true balance, I have to step into being Katheryn Hudson.”
One of Busy Philipps‘ sweetest dreams has come true.
Just days ago, the actress let fans in on a little secret: she was secretly hoping Kim Kardashian would send her one of the KKW Fragrance chocolate heart packages taking over the Internet. “I mean. There’s no reason I would get one but I have been secretly hoping @KimKardashian would send me one of those chocolate hearts with perfume in it so I could bust it open with a tiny mallet,” she tweeted on Friday.
Ask and you shall receive, Busy! “You guys. Something really exciting happened today,” she teased fans on her Instagram Story Monday night. “This is like the most exciting thing that’s happened in awhile.”
Indeed, the 20-year-old beauty mogul has been in charge of how much—or, rather, how little—is known about her little girl. “Kylie did it her way, which I thought was really beautiful. She just really wanted to take the time for her baby and herself,” Kris told E! News. “She’s doing great.
In her daughter’s birth announcement, Kylie apologized to her Instagram followers for keeping her pregnancy private. “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” she wrote on Instagram. “I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”

“I kept hearing, ‘I didn’t know what was going on,’ and then there’s an emphasis on two factors playing on someone’s mental state,” Tyler says during the emotional reading. “It’s kind of like, ‘There’s no saving me.'”

If there’s one thing for sure: Spencer Pratt knows how to get attention.
Now that New York Fashion Week is almost underway, the new papa is sharing a few tactics for influencers craving the non-stop flashes of street-style photographers.
“If I was a rich, famous person, I’d probably go to all the shows. It would be great content for SnapChat,” The Hills star told E! News. “I’m more entertained by street style and the photo ops that come with it. [Influencers] do these amazing setups—like back in my vintage days, I would call them paparazzi setups—they are doing them themselves and posting them. Before that was being a fame whore; now it’s being a curated, Instagram person. I love the work that goes into these—from the background walls to the all details.”
Luckily, you don’t really have to be rich or famous to attract attention at fashion week. In fact, there’s no better place to make a style statement, to be as loud and extra as you want. To get noticed—beyond your own social media accounts—the OG of reality TV has some old-school tricks up his swagged-out Stella McCartney sleeves.
She continued, “As long as you’re putting in the work and eating well, your body will respond. But more importantly, your mind will. You will start saying things like – I can, I will, I’m strong, I feel good, I am happy…… the looks just come as a result of loving yourself through respect and positive self talk. No matter what your shape is, confidence and joy shine way beyond the physical.”
Danica then told her fans, “My goal in life is to be light. To be that person that walks into a room or up to someone and they just feel better. That’s has nothing to do with the way I look. But, I bet It looks beautiful to someone who needs it. And don’t we all want to be lit up? Now go be someone’s light today. Or many if you can!”
The new Queer Eye introduces viewers to Karamo, Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion)—all of whom cite the original series as transformative.
“I feel like growing up with it, it was such a big deal for me, the show was so important in my formative years growing up gay, and I do feel that pressure. It’s such an honor and such an opportunity, not only for the five of us, but there’s a big crew that we worked really hard with…I almost can’t even think of the pressure of the whole community because it’s such an exciting time you can’t even think about it too much,” Jonathan said.
It’s always felt like Oprah was our family—like we know everything about her because she’s always been open, honest and relatable in all of her work.
But have you ever thought about what the 64-year-old television mogul, magazine publisher and philanthropist does when she’s not in the public eye? When she’s not interviewing people on her shows? When she’s not giving one of those chill-inducing speeches?
The A Wrinkle in Time star covers the latest issue of WSJ. magazine in which she gives readers some insight into her life behind closed doors.
Here are 11 things you might not know about Oprah’s private life:
For Stacy London, 2017 was a back-breaking year.
For one, she quite literally underwent surgery on her spine at the end of 2016. “My doctor had to go in and fuse vertebrae that were loose because they were grinding against each other, effectively turning my discs to powder,” she described in a candid essay penned for Refinery29.
While the TV fashion maven expected a six week recovery, she was not prepared for the “financial, physical, emotional shit show” that would follow.
As London recalled in the essay, she had been taking somewhat of a sabbatical and was unemployed when she decided to undergo the surgery to set her up for 2017. However, the side effects of the procedure immediately took shape in the form of pain, nausea, diarrhea, brain fog and fatigue.
Back in her house and on the mend, she began spending in many directions—on food delivery, transportation, housekeeping and online shopping. “I realized I wasn’t just untethered from a job, I was untethered from a purpose. I had nothing to hold on to. And, honestly, I just wasn’t thinking about my finances. In fact, I would have thrown money at anything— material or procedural—to make the recovery process easier,” she explained.
