Kerry Washington to Launch Nail Polish Line With OPI

While we anxiously await the return of Scandal in February, Kerry Washington is busy expanding her beauty profile. Already a creative consultant for Neutrogena, Washington just signed a lucrative deal with OPI nail polish. The actress will serve as creative ambassador for the brand, co-designing her first line of nail polishes. Washington is excited for the chance to sport her own polishes at fancy Hollywood events: “I’m looking forward to testing out new shades on the red carpet,” she told WWD. “The fun, for me, is that nail lives in the crossover space between fashion and beauty.”

For design inspiration, she’s drawing from the work of another beauty icon: Gwen Stefani. “I’m a big fan of Gwen Stefani’s line for OPI,” Washington said. “She has done such a great job having her collection represent her – not just with OPI, but through everything she’s done. If I can do something similar, I will be very happy.”

Stay tuned for details on when Kerry Washington’s line for OPI hits stores. In the meantime, Kerry will continue to paint her digits with her favorite OPI shades: Big Apple Red (bright candy apple), You Don’t Know Jacques (taupe polish) and Lincoln Park After Dark (deep red-black), a color we bet Olivia Pope loves too.

The Bachelorette’s David Witko Tries To Promote Teeth Whitening, Fails Miserably

We all know that Instagram has become one giant platform for sponsored posts, but the influencer usually gets the job done in a semi-believable way. Not The Bachelorette‘s David Witko, though, who managed to epically screw up what looks like an advertising attempt for a teeth whitening company.

Implying that he got teeth whitening treatment over the weekend, the “international model” told his 7,657 followers, “Got my teeth whitened at @perla_whitening the other day… Didn’t want to post until I was super happy!” He continued, “It’s a painless system and affordable! I’ll be back for sure! My teeth were at least 5 shades brighter after one session! #sunday.” 

If all the enthusiasm and exclamation marks weren’t transparent enough, it turns out David’s photo from “the other day”, aka “#sunday”, is actually a photo from the other month, aka September, so there’s no way he showcased an actual dentist result in his post unless he’s seriously talented at recreating photos.

Gemma Ward Apologises for Faking It When She Made It: ‘I’m Not Hiding as Much’

Vogue Australia January 2016 : Gemma Ward by Lachlan Bailey

Gemma Ward has one of the most recognisable faces in the modelling industry, because that’s what Vogue covers, Prada runways and unique facial composition will do to you. She didn’t always completely love the fame, though, lying about who she was during the peak of her career.

As Vogue Australia‘s cover girl for January 2016, Gemma admitted that she would pretend to be her cousin if someone stopped her in the street. “I’d say that it definitely wasn’t me. I feel really bad about that now. If they’re out there, I’m sorry,” she laughed.

It wasn’t that she didn’t want to be recognisable, it was that she worried about living up to her fans’ expectations. “I might still have a bad morning and claim to be my cousin,” she said. “But I am definitely much more accepting of myself and that is why I’m not hiding as much.” (more…)

Melbourne Festival Seeks Legal Adivce After Turning Away Transgender Women

A three-day women’s festival has caused upset after telling a potential customer that only transgender women who have “undertaken all operative measures” will be allowed into its event next year.

ABC reports that a woman named Kylee emailed organisers of the Seven Sisters festival, which is to be held next March in Mt Martha Melbourne’s South East, to ask if her partner, Belle, would be welcome. Belle is in the early stages of transitioning. 

The staff reportedly explained to Kylee that “having individuals onsite who are physically men would be breaking the trust of many women” but that they “are open to transgender women who have undertaken all operative measures to become a woman to partake in the festival”. (more…)
