Celebrities Reveal What Fans Say To Them On The Street | Watch

Capture

Ever seen one of your favourite celebrities and you were so starstruck that two hours later you are wondering to yourself, “Oh God, Why did I say that?” well meeting a celebrity can be quite awkward – even for them it seems.

In this video from Vanity Fair, Jennifer Garner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon, and Channing Tatum are just a few of the many celebs featured detailing what fans say to them when they are recognized on the street.

Some of the responses include: “We don’t wanna talk to you, we just wanna take a picture with you”; “Oh my god, you’re so much prettier in person”; and “You’re my best friend and you don’t even know it.” Several of the celebs featured in the video say fans don’t have any clue who they are, some of them get mixed up for other people, and some have their famous lines repeated to them.

It’s nice to know that we are not alone in the “awkward meet” of some of our favourite celebrities. Watch the video below:

beyonce-jay-z-run-tour-miami

The media cannot get enough of Beyonce and Jay Z or is it their publicist that keeps feeding us these rumours? Since the elevator beatdown different rumours have been flying around about Beyonce and Jayz – from divorce, to tour mishaps, to pregnancy and now a joint album.

According to Los Angeles DJ Skee, it’s happening. And it will come out soon– like, within the next few months. As reported by HipHopDX.com:

The biggest couple in music, maybe entertainment, maybe the world, they’re working on an album together,” DJ Skee said. “You know who I’m talking about, Jay Z and Beyoncé. I have confirmed and talked with a couple sources. Now we all know what Jay Z did Samsung last year. We all know how Beyoncé came out of nowhere. But this secret would top all of them, even that new U2 album.”

The news comes on the heels of their final On The Run Tour show in Paris on Saturday (September 13). The North American leg of the tour alone grossed over $100 million according to Billboard. In August Billboard estimated that the couple’s per show pay guarantee was as high as $4 million “from an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show.” The North American tour also boasted a collective attendance of 850,000 over 19 shows.

Are you excited about the prospect of a new album or is this just one joint project too many?

FAB Beauty: We Help Toke Makinwa Choose Her Next Hairdo

toke-hairWe all know that Nigerian media personality Toke Makinwa is a style chamelion who likes shaking things up every now and again. Toke has already experimented with a range of hairstyles this year from edgy bobs to box braids from dark locks to brunette curls. Hence it came as no surprise Toke took to her Instagram account today to ask for suggestions for a new hairdo, clearly itching for a change again. So we decided to have some fun and give Toke some idea.

 

Shorts

Toke mentioned “pixie cut” in her Instagram post so we decide to try a few short cuts on her. First we go for Jennifer Hudson’s hair but feel that Toke looks a little too boyish with this cut. While her pixie-like features are perfect to pull off a short cut, perhaps an Elvis-style quiff is a bit too overwhelming.

toke-jhud

We can’t help resist pulling a Miley side-shaven pixie on Toke just to see how she looks. And a hair style that could go oh so horribly wrong on someone else looks absolutely fab on Toke. Who knows maybe she should go all out with a blonde pixie cut?

toke-miley

Mid

We then graduate on to mid-length. We try this old-school Hollywood glam hairdo on Toke and decide the results are meh…

toke-curves

We decided to stick to mid-length with less volume with a side-swept do in nutmeg tones and the results were amazing.

toke-mid

There is still room for some madness here so we decide to check out how Toke may pull off Kelly Osborne’s lavender bob. The result? She looks like a perfect Harajuku doll.

toke-lavender-bobFringe

Another style Toke is considering is a fringe so it had to be done; we had to see how she would look with bangs. Not bad, hey? She kind of reminds us of Beyonce when the diva sported her fringed honey blonde do.

toke-fringe

Afro

Next up was Solange’s Afro. We reckon Toke’s delicate featured are a little drowned by the huge do. Perhaps a smalle Afro would work better.

toke-afro

Long

It goes without saying that we had to try a variety of long hair styles on Toke, seeing that whether in weaves or box braids she likes to keep it long. For something a little different we tried on platinum blonde poker straight hair with visible roots. Not surprisingly, Toke pulled that one off too.

toke-blonde

Next up was Selena Gomez’s mini-bouffant which made for a flattering do showing off Toke’s beautiful face.

 

toke-selena

Then we tried Kim Kardashian’s glossy brunette locks on Toke and found she could give Kim K. a run for her money.

 

toke-kim

We decided to check out an off-mid parting with long hair only to find out that it’s actually quite similar to the hair often sported by the media personality – long, mid-parted and poker straight. “If it ain’t broke, why fix it?” was our consensus as this hairstyle truly suits Toke’s facial features.

toke-longWe concluded our little cheeky experiment with the Modiface app with one certainty: Toke Makinwa is blessed with such a beautiful face that she can pull off just about any hairstyle. But what do you think? Do you have a favourite?

Another Photoshopped Thigh Gap Instagram Post From Beyoncé! Where Does The Photoshop Madness End?

Beyonce Thigh Gap

Where does the strive for perfection end? Models, celebrities and the media are constantly in our face about bodily perfections when there really is no such thing – and it is amazing that it is these women that young girls look up to that also feel a need to give an air of perfection.

My rant this morning is not just a rant – trust me, it has root.

Taking a look at some of the pictures that the Queen Bey posted on her Tumblr page it has become apparent that one of her bikini shots while enjoying her 33rd birthday on a yacht with family and friends was doctored.

beyonce-bikini-1 Capture Capture1

The picture shows Beyoncé stepping down on a staircase and at first glance it just seems like she has space between her legs because of the mathematical calculations of putting two legs in different places (or something like that I guess), but on closer inspection it is obvious that Beyoncé has actually created the gap in between her things – thereby falling victim, again, to one of the oldest debates in the book when it comes to photoshop – creating a thigh gap.

Sure we all love a good thigh gap and if we could have it we would make the sun stream between our legs in a sensual and yet flattering way, as Beyoncé intended. Alas, for most women who are curvy, bodacious and bootylicious, a thigh gap is something that will never happen. Why must you force it with photoshop?

It is disappointing to see that Beyonce feels a need to create a thigh gap on an Instagram post (aren’t all the filters enough for beauty already) again. If you recall, Beyoncé was called out by fans earlier in the year when she posted a picture on Instagram that also appeared to be doctored. She shared a string of shots looking trim and toned as she took to a golf course for her very own Single Ladies tournament in red and white stripy shorts and a pink bikini top. But seconds after the mum-of-one posted the pictures online, she was flooded with comments from fans criticising her for photoshopping one of the shots to make her thighs appear slimmer.

Another photoshop mishap

Another photoshop mishap

Beyoncé is not the only one who has tried to deceive young girls on Instagram as even the curvy and proud Kim Kardashian-West has been knocked for using a slimming app on her Instagram pictures. So again I ask, is there no end to this photoshop madness?

Kim-Kardashian Kim-Kardashian-Instagram

If people like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian, who the media has always loved their curves, feel a personal need to photoshop their bodies to be thinner then where do we stand with teaching young girls about self-appreciation and body love?

Beyonce and Kim Kardashian are not the only ones we are calling out. Late last year model Miranda Kerr was forced to say sorry after sharing a Photoshoppped picture making her waist look thinner – a year after she posted the original.

Spot the difference?

Spot the difference?

Seeing this picture from Beyoncé is quite disappointing and only reminds me of a sentence I heard the other day – “Don’t try to look like the girl in the magazine. Even the girl the in magazine does not look like the girl in the magazine”.

17-year-old singer, Lorde once called out a photoshopped picture of her face and added to her Twitter followers, “…remember flaws are ok”.

Lorde-main

Beyonce, we love you as you are. There is no need to photoshop your thick thighs. What do you think? Did Beyonce digitally alter the picture?

Patchwork Jeans! The New Denim Trend You Have Got To Try

Capture

While we can never get tired of the reliable denim, we have to constantly look for new ways to revamp the denim look and bust out new styles. One new denim trend that we have spotted recently is the patchwork. It seems people are embracing DIY techniques more.

With fashion houses like Junya Watanabe, Stella McCartney, and rag & bone already churning out quilt-like jeans, we know it is only a matter of time before this trend is embraced on the street, on the runway and in fashion magazines.

Our best way to style the patchwork denim is to go for an androgynous style that’s as edgy as it is every day. The boyfriend patchwork jeans is the best way to do denim right. This slouchy style features playful patches and contrast cuffs for a look that’s at once relaxed and refined. Team them with a simple sweater and leather brogues to complete this boy-meets-girl statement.

To help you incorporate this trend into your wardrobe, we have put together a few people wearing the patchwork denim trend to give you some inspiration:

FAB Style: Jourdan Dunn Rocks ‘Naomi Kate Cara Jourdan’ TShirt at Harrods Bash

Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 03.57.48

Jourdan Dunn has certainly beaten Naomi Campbell to it by grabbing the Missguided Jourdan Supermodel Boyfriend TShirt. While the original supermodel Naomi Campbell asked her fans on Instagram this Monday where she could buy one, Miss Dunn was seen rocking the coveted tee at Harrods Shoe Heaven Launch Party on Tuesday evening.

Paying homage to predecessors Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss and sending a cheeky nod to model mate Cara Delevingne, Jourdan rocked the tee on a fashion night out. The 24-year-old model who has become an icon since she launched her modelling career in 2008 paired the tee with an edgy leather mini with buckles and fur ankle boots keeping her look casual but luxe.

Discovered in Hammersmith Primark in 2006 and featured on high profile campaigns and catwalks over the years and listed as one of  the top-earning models in 2014 by Forbes Magazine, Dunn is often seen as Naomi’s successor while Cara is considered by many to be the next Kate so we reckon this fashionable tribute is only fitting.

beyonce-bikini-2While Serena Williams shows off her killer curves on the beach, Beyonce flaunts her flawless body in new pictures she shared on her Tumblr account on Tuesday. Not only do Queen Bey’s holiday snaps shows off her fine form, but they are sure to put paid to marriage trouble rumours too. Bey and Jay couldn’t look any happier celebrating the diva’s 33rd birthday on a luxury yacht in the south of France early this month.

A selection of fab pics from the birthday celebrations show the “Drunk in Love” singer in a bikini displaying her enviable figure, Mr. and Mrs. Carter canoodling on the beach and the adorable Blue Ivy playing in the sand.

FAB Gist: Serena Williams Shows off Killer Curves

serena-williamsMove over, Kim K. and Nicki Minaj – as Serena Williams hits the beach and kills the competition in booty stakes with her shapely derriere. Following her US Open victory last week, the 32-year-old tennis champion hit the beach in a black and neon sporty two-piece and showed off her muscular physique. Accessorising with a 1970s style floppy-brimmed hat and some round shades, Serena looked on top form.

serena-williams-2

Serena Williams soaked up the sun with her beach buddy actress Eva Longoria and her muscular and shapely figure came as a breath of fresh air in a world of surgically enhanced curves. Oddly though, her choice of footwear was a pair of trainers.

serena-williams-4

Earlier this year Serena said: “I never thought I’d be playing at this stage and I have had a lot of time to think about it. I never thought I would have one of the best years this year, but I always just try to keep doing things better. I’m still looking to improve.”

Serena Williams has won 17 Grand Slams and is currently ranked No.1 by the Women’s Tennis Association, for the sixth time.
