WATCH: Dannii and Kylie Minogue Reunite for First TV Duet in 30 Years

Down under’s most famous pocket-sized sisters (no, not The Veronicas) have performed together for the first time in 30 years, with Dannii and Kylie Minogue taking to The X Factor stage for a holiday-inspired, all-camp duet of “100 Degrees” during last night’s finale. 

Kylie kicked things off, owning the staircase in a pink mirrored dress reminiscent of a 90s-girl’s beaded door curtain, before Dannii emerged in a matching ensemble (but blue) and magic truly happened for the first time since Young Talent Time.

Think Kylie’s “Kids” duet with Reece Mastin back in 2011, but like 10 times better. We’d like a encore for the 2015 Sydney Mardi Gras, please?

Edie Parker’s famous bags are as ubiquitous on the red carpet as mermaid gowns. Her enamel box clutches come adorned with emoji graphics or personalized names, making them a street style favorite as well.

What can’t Jennifer Lawrence do…besides walk in a straight line without tripping? The acclaimed actress also happens to be a great dancer and a pretty good singer. Her song “The Hanging Tree” from the Mockingjay, Part 1 soundtrack sold over a million copies and landed on Billboard’s Top 15 list.

She’s showcasing her singing talent once again with a new tune “Deep in Meadow” on the Mockingjay, Part 2 soundtrack. The techno remix, mixed by Baauer (“Harlem Shake”) is emotional, haunting and dance party-ready. *Shimmies*

If this whole acting thing doesn’t work out, JLaw has a pretty good shot at becoming a pop star. Check it out below via Spotify.

Vogue Paris Welcomes Vanessa Paradis as Guest Editor of the Holiday Issue with Three Stunning Covers (Forum Buzz)

We have been speculating about the guest editor for Vogue Paris‘ double holiday issue after receiving a hint that ‘someone French‘ would do the honors. Names like Léa Seydoux, Marion Cotillard and Sophie Marceau fluttered about, but yesterday it was revealed to be Vanessa Paradis. In true festive and celebratory fashion, French Vogue gifts us a selection of three unique covers to choose from. Vanessa stood before the lens of Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, David Sims and Karim Sadli for the occasion, sending us into a frenzy and our forums selected their favorite fairly quickly.

“Stunning surprise, and quite appropriate too!! I really want to like the I&V cover (above), but the pose is too OTT. The Sims one (below left) is a very good way to end the year. Perhaps one of Alt’s most memorable covers yet,” praised Benn98.

“Karim Sadli’s cover (below right) is just beautiful! I’m really happy, the three covers are amazing,” added an equally as impressed Oxymore. (more…)

From bobs to top knots, all anyone could talk about on the 2015 AMAs red carpet was hair. Gigi Hadid nearly broke the Internet when she showed up with a short, choppy bob. Twitter erupted with questions: When did she cut her hair? Is this a response to her high-profile breakup? If she didn’t livestream the cut on Periscope, did it even happen? As it turns out, we had nothing to worry about. Gigi didn’t cut her hair after all.

Instead, the Victoria’s Secret model just wore a short half wig. Mind blown. According to Teen Vogue, her stylist Bryce Scarlett “used Gigi’s own face-framing shorter layers as a guide and then attached a half wig to the back of her head.” He blended the hair then made it look messy and effortless using Matrix Style Link Texture Builder. And that’s how the #JustOneNightBob was born.

Of course, half wigs are nothing new. They’re an easy way to try a different look, like a short haircut, without committing. Kudos to Gigi for experimenting with a new style, even if she sparked a Twitter meltdown in the process. We can all rest easy tonight knowing Gigi’s famous flowing locks are still intact.
