Zalebs rocking designer threads

It’s no secret that every girl dreams of owning that pair of Christian Louboutin’s or that Gucci bag but for most of us, this will only remain a dream. But for some lucky celebs, this dream has become a reality. From designer bags, the trendiest shoes and even an enviable full Gucci track set Khanyi Mbau so casually posted on her Twitter feed that had us red and blue with envy. And it’s no secret that celebrities and influencers have a love affair with designer handbags. We’ve rounded up the South African celebrities and influencers that regularly wear major lust-worthy designer totes and threads. Take a look below:

This black Barbie doll’s cornrows are sparking controversy on social media

There’s no arguing that Barbies have improved when it comes to inclusivity, as we’re no longer only seeing the same straight-sized, blonde, white dolls that were first introduced in the late 1950s. Now, we have Barbies that are representative of different shapes, sizes, and skin tones, which is certainly a step in the right direction. However, Mattel just released its latest rendition of the iconic toy — and a lot of people are not happy with it. The reason? The black doll’s hairstyle.

Posted to Barbie’s style Instagram, the doll in question is shown wearing a half head of black cornrows and a blonde curly weave next to two white dolls wearing their hair in ponytails. “Movie night with my girls to watch the @Hulu premiere of the new @Barbie documentary,” reads the caption.

People were very quick to comment on the photo with their feelings, most of which expressed deep frustration over the doll’s hair. “Who’s bright idea was it to style the AA Barbie’s hair like that. All of these beautiful brown women in all industries, you couldn’t find ONE to look to for hair inspiration? You need to remove her and start from scratch IMMEDIATELY!!” wrote one user. “Maybe some have worn this style but it doesn’t represent the majority,” and “the Black Barbie hairstyle is horrid,” are just a few of countless comments that derided the look.

Others didn’t seem to take issue with Black Barbie’s look. “There are other black dolls on this same page with different hairstyles that represent how folks choose to wear their hair,” one commenter said. “The hypersensitivity and the ‘ready to pop off’ is on display.”
Another user echoed the sentiment, noting that the black Barbie dolls on the Instagram page had a wide range of hairstyles representative of how some black women choose to wear their hair. “@barbiestyle [has] dolls to fit all different types of women. You act as if you have never seen a black woman wear their hair braided on the side with curls or weave on the other side. They didn’t just pull this hairstyle out the sky this is a hairstyle that some black women wear.” Though the user did note that she wasn’t particularly a fan of the color of the hair.

Still, the general consensus was negative, so time will tell if Mattel takes that into consideration in the future.

Taylor Swift fans are spamming Karlie Kloss with rat emojis because of course they are

Karlie KlossLast week something totally standard and benign happened between Adult Woman Katy Perry and Adult Woman Karlie Kloss: They met for a sushi dinner in West Hollywood. Because Twitter exists, though, Taylor Swift fans were quick to turn this hang-out into a capital-T Thing. You see, to them, Kloss isn’t a 25-year-old woman capable of making decisions for herself: She’s a member of Swift’s “squad,” and therefore must pledge allegiance solely to her. Apparently, that means no dinner dates with Perry, who’s infamously been beefing with Swift—at least publicly—for years now (ya know: “Swish Swish” and “Bad Blood” and all that petty, Auto-Tuned nonsense).

Nonsense is the operative word in the above sentence because that’s exactly what this is: an attempt to create drama where there is none. Truthfully, there’s probably no “beef” between any of these women at all. It’s 100 percent possible for someone to hang out with a person who doesn’t get along with one of their friends. The world will still turn. “Ready for It” and “Bon Appétit” will still be bops.

Don’t tell this to the Swifties, though, because they’re really trying to stir up some blond pop star drama. First, they “scolded” Kloss on Twitter in early January for captioning a video campaign in which she plays basketball “Swish Swish.” (Again, LOL-ing at “scold.” Kloss is 25! She pays taxes!) And now, in light of the Sushi Date Heard ‘Round the World, they’re spamming Kloss’s Instagram comments with rat emojis. Why rat emojis, you ask? Because Swift reclaimed the snake emoji after the Kim Kardashian Snapchat drama and snakes eat rats and, OMG, I can’t believe these are actual words we’re saying in 2018. This is not what Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf intended when they invented the Internet!

Check out the emoji-spamming for yourself, below. No, this isn’t a fever dream. You’re really looking at fans spamming Kloss’s Instagram with rat emojis because she ate raw fish with a singer other than Taylor Swift.

Where does our society go from here, really? Aren’t we past this reductive female feud drivel? I, for one, am excited to live in a world where women can eat sushi with whomever they want—whenever they want—without fear of emoji retaliation. What song does Swift have to record to help us get there? Does she need to release something with Kloss and Perry? Call Jack Antonoff immediately. Let’s make this happen.

The first look at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Lifetime movie is already here

Prince Harry And Meghan MarkleWhen her romance with Prince Harry went public, Meghan Markle stopped posting on Instagram and Twitter before, just last month, deleting all her social media accounts for good. The Suits actress’s onscreen counterpart, however, is not so restrained. On Thursday, filming began for Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, Lifetime’s made-for-TV movie about the couple, and Parisa Fitz-Henley, who plays Markle in the film, uploaded a photo to her own Instagram account to mark the milestone.

In the selfie, she and Murray Fraser, who plays Prince Harry in the movie, pose with their heads close together while — gasp! — lying in a bed. Fraser, whose strawberry-blond curls and scruff make him a dead ringer for the royal, appears to be shirtless under the covers, while Fitz-Henley, also a perfect doppelgänger for the royal-to-be, is in a bubblegum-pink sweater or robe. “✨Sweet Dreams to you✨ Love, #HarryandMeghan #ARoyalRomance ??✨ @Lifetimetv #MurrayFraser ? Day 1 #gingerlove,” Fitz-Henley captioned the photo.

Lifetime is clearly angling to get the movie done as quickly as possible — though an official premiere date has yet to be set, the film will presumably air just before the royal wedding in May; Lifetime’s film about Prince William and Kate Middleton aired just 11 days before their April 2011 nuptials. The company announced that the movie was in the works just last month and only confirmed that the two leads had been cast earlier this week. According to Deadline, the movie, which is filming in Los Angeles and Vancouver, will cover Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship from the very beginning of their courtship through their engagement. “The film will examine the history of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the moment they met after being set up by friends, through their initial courtship when they were able to keep their romance under wraps, and ultimately the intense global media attention surrounding their relationship and Meghan’s life as a divorced American actress,” the outlet noted.

Selena Gomez makes her Instagram private after Billboard interview

With 130 million followers, Selena Gomez holds the title of the most popular Instagram in the world, but that didn’t stop her from making her account private yesterday.

Selena Gomez

The 25-year-old singer posted an Instagram Story shortly earlier to explain how upset she was with the outcome of an interview with a Billboard reporter.

The journalist had been invited into Selena’s home and published a conversation about a teddy bear which was a gift from a fan.

“There’s a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez’s North Hollywood home,” she wrote. “‘I know, I know,’ says Gomez, rolling her eyes, acknowledging that the stuffed animal doesn’t quite blend with the trio of armchairs nestled in the inviting, marble-accented nook. ‘It was a gift, and at first I thought, ‘This is so ridiculous, I can’t wait until I give it away to another person.’’ But Gomez, 25, hasn’t let go of it – yet.”

Selena took a screenshot of the article, writing: “Never will I let another human guess my words ever again. Or invite them in my home. That is so hurtful. The most ‘ridiculous’ part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things.”

The feature was published last week to honour Selena as Billboard‘s Woman of the Year. She shared a picture to thank them, presumably before reading the full article…

The most-liked Instagram photo from 2017 is unsurprising

Beyonce

It’s hard to forget the day when Beyoncé revealed she and Jay Z were expecting twins. Her announcement was truly bonkers — in the best way possible, of course. Queen B decided to break the news on Instagram via an original, fabulous photo shoot. She tossed on a green veil, a brown and blue lingerie set, and posed like a regal goddess surrounded by flowers. It was a moment, to say the least, an iconic photo from arguably the most iconic performer of our time.

The snap went viral. We covered it — several times — and so did literally every other outlet that cares about celebrities. Beyoncé’s name quickly started trending on Twitter. Social media exploded. The memes came in hot. In under an hour, Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement morphed into a bona fide pop-culture sensation. We’re still talking about it!

So we’re not exactly surprised that B’s pic is the most-liked Instagram photo from 2017. The social media platform just released the stats today, and Beyoncé’s baby bump debut racked up an impressive 11.18 million likes. The photo of Bey holding her twins, Sir and Rumi, is the fourth most popular pic of the year.

Coming in behind her is the photo Cristiana Ronaldo posted of his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, and his fourth child, who he welcomed on November 12. That photo received an impressive 11.03 million likes. (Ronaldo has two other entries on the list, as well — both family pics.)

Rounding out the top three is Selena Gomez, whose photo revealing her kidney transplant scooped up 10.31 million likes. Again, this story went completely viral — and Selena is the most-followed person on Instagram — so this number shouldn’t shock anyone, either. In fact, five of the top 10 celebrity Instagram photos from this year came from her account. Five!

With these numbers, just imagine if Selena and Beyoncé posed for a photo together. Now that would actually break the Internet.

Blake Lively just hilariously trolled Ryan Reynolds for his birthday

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Much fuss is made over Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ seemingly perfect marriage, and for good reason: They’re absolutely hilarious together. Sure, they have their serious moments — like the time Ryan praised Blake for making him “a more empathetic person” — but the two are best when they’re trolling each other.

Take, for example, the time Blake called Ryan out for blocking her photo of John Legend. There’s also the musical prank Ryan played on Blake while she was giving birth to their first daughter, James. (So rude, by the way!) And we can’t forget the GIF Ryan tweeted of Blake that compared their first date to her shark movie, The Shallows.

One of the couple’s funniest moments, though, happened this summer, when Ryan posted on Instagram to honour Blake on her birthday. There was just one problem: He cropped half of her face out of the photo.

Well, it seems Blake has taken the strategy of “don’t get mad, get even” to heart. Here’s what she posted yesterday on Instagram to celebrate Ryan’s birthday:

She followed that slick move with this tweet:

Well done, Blake, well done. Ryan, meanwhile, had his own birthday jokes to share on Twitter, writing, “My kids tried to surprise me for my birthday this morning. I totally heard them coming and snuck out to start a new life somewhere else.”

But don’t worry about this tweet offending Blake — in fact, his sense of humour is one of the many reasons why she loves her husband. “He’ll run [his tweets] by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that,” she said earlier this year. “I treat him like my girlfriend. I’m like, ‘Hey, this happened. It upset me. This is how I feel. What do I do?’ And he does the same for me. He treats me like his best buddy.”
