Leighton Meester might’ve been a raging she-devil as Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf (we know it was just a front, B), but in her true form she’s nothing but warmth and fuzziness, made clear with this latest cover of Elvis’ “Blue Christmas”.
Singing and strumming alongside fellow crooner Dana Williams, who sports an on-trend take on the Christmas sweater, btw, the girls melt our hearts by performing a laid-back, lounge-style rendition of the holiday track. Complete with Christmas stockings on the fireplace and a long-haired Santa tambourine player, this video really is delivering all the festive feels.
It’s not quite the “Lovefool” nostalgia Leighton served earlier this year, but it is totally spirited and going straight onto the seasonal playlist. We were getting sick of Mariah Carey anyway.
We all get sucked into those games from time to time which are a little embarrassing, pretty revealing and always hilarious, like Never Have I Ever, Would You Rather and, of course, good ol’ Shag, Marry, Kill. There’s nothing like choosing whether or not Brad Pitt, for example, should get some lovin’ or some murderin’ to let everyone know where your priorities lie.
Unfortunately Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid and Lottie Moss’ version of Shag, Marry, Kill for Vogue‘s upcoming issue wasn’t so jaw-dropping, with the three young stars choosing the fate of three fictional characters instead of, you know, people like Tyga and The Weeknd. Throwing Kanye West or Zayn Malik in there would’ve made things interesting, too.
The trio took the high, and easy road by making a decision between Aladdin, Harry Potter and Batman, which was all very cute considering they’re all teenagers. The shoot is also insanely adorbs, with the girls frolicking around the countryside in feminine frocks. Check it out here, and watch the video for yourself above.
Sophie Monk was for Bardot what Ginger Spice was for the Spice Girls: a clear favourite. However, much like Geri Halliwell’s resurgence into the music industry, the Aussie radio host has left us sorely confused with her musical return.
Singing her own rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” for KIIS 1065, Sophie has truly outweirded herself in the new clip by getting intimate with Christmas ornaments, tinsel and candy canes while rapping lines like “Yeah, baby. Yeah, baby Jesus.” And we thought turning down a Victoria’s Secret audition was weird.
Help Christmas come early by treating yourself to the video above.
The year might be coming to an end but the “Hotling Bling” craze isn’t over just yet. Adding to the selection of gifs, mashups, memes and covers of Drake’s catchy track, the good sports over at W Magazine have rounded up 13 celebrities to perform a dramatic reading of the megahit.
The likes of Amy Schumer, Kristen Wiig, Seth Rogen, Bryan Cranston, Joel Edgerton and more are involved in interpreting lines like “You used to call me on my cell phone” and “That can only mean one thing” in their own unique actor and comedian ways. Elizabeth Banks even serves up “Late night when you need my love” with some rap flavour, which is kind of weird but mildly entertaining.
While the concept might seem totally random, it’s really not, as the advanced dancer, i.e. Drake, is actually the cover star of W Art‘s latest issue. Plus, who are we to complain? This is gold. Watch it above.
Forum members made up their minds fairly quickly. “It’s like a Zara campaign,” expressed an underwhelmed MON.
“If I see this advert, go into the store and find out the clothes are so much more expensive than Zara, I’ll be very disappointed,” Mody chimed in, suggesting the campaign looked cheap and inexpensive for a brand like Burberry. (more…)
There are so many reasons to love Chrissy Teigen. She’s an in-demand supermodel, a supportive wife to John Legend, a comedian with a deadpan sense of humor, and a spectacular cook to boot. If you follow her on Instagram, you know that Chrissy’s refreshingly down-to-earth about her food choices. She’ll whip up a sophisticated dish like rack of lamb and then wax poetic about her love for rice “Chrissy” treats. The girl even makes her own homemade potato chips and dip! Chrissy’s channeling her love for food into a cookbook, which she titled Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat in a playful nod to her current pregnancy cravings (we think).
The social media maven tweeted her excitement, writing: “Oh crap oh crap! My cookbook is available for pre-order and officially has a cover debut which is nowwwwwww! Ah!” The cover features Chrissy smiling gleefully with food in hand, hovering over a table of ingredients. Cravings is a collaboration with food writer and recipe developer Adeena Sussman and it’s edited by Top Chef Masters judge Francis Lam. If Cravings is half as good as Teigen’s food blog, So Delushious, we’re in for a treat. Pre-order Teigen’s new cookbook, available in February 2016, here.
