WATCH: Girl Who’s Going Deaf Finds Out Her Dream of Meeting Taylor Swift Is Coming True

When Maitland girl Jorja Hope found out she was going to lose her hearing completely, she was devastated that she wouldn’t be able to hear Taylor Swift sing anymore.

After her twin sister, Chloe, kicked off the now-viral campaign #HelpJorjaMeetTaylorSwiftSydney to help Jorja meet the pop star during her Sydney concert later this month, radio station Nova, which is hosting Taylor’s intimate Hamilton Island gig, picked up the story and lent their helping hands to help make Jorja’s dreams become a reality.

Travelling to the studio for what she thought would be a studio tour, Jorja was lost for words when radio hosts “Fitzy and Wippa” told her they were granting her wish of one day meeting Taylor Swift.

Watch her adorbs reaction in the video above because it’s actually the sweetest thing you’ll see today. We dare you not to tear up.

Our transformation to Empire‘s Cookie Lyon is almost complete. We’re already painting our nails with polish inspired by the Lyon family matriarch and now thanks to Hood by Air, we can pay homage to her with our clothing too.

The fashion brand collaborated with Empire on a new collection that ranges from dresses to champagne glasses and keychains. It brilliantly features popular quotes front the show like Cookie’s famous line “I want what’s mine.”

Like Deborah Lippman (and the rest of the world), Hood by Air’s creative director, Shayne Oliver, is obsessed with Mrs. Lyon: “For me, it’s all about Cookie,” he said. “Since the first episode, Wednesday nights have become a tradition for my friends and I. We know every look, scene and catchphrase by heart. When putting this collection together I wanted to shine a spotlight on the characters we loved (and hated) most as well as the moments immortalized in memes that keep us cracking up all day!”

The line retails for $15-$300 and is available for pre-order here.

Daisy Ridley Is a Force to Be Reckoned with on ELLE’s December Cover (Forum Buzz)

Aside from Vanity Fair‘s June cover, we surprisingly haven’t seen the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the major fashion monthlies. Considered to be the most anticipated blockbuster of 2015, ELLE just tapped one of the movie’s stars for its December 2015 issue. Daisy Ridley makes her debut on the magazine’s latest offering wearing Giorgio Armani, shot by Mark Seliger. The English-born actress smizes down the lens, complete with some dramatic styling.

Members of our forums were quick to start a debate. “Everything looks so cheap. She’s such a beautiful girl and shines in every single one of the Star Wars trailers but here she looks awfully plain. The forced styling doesn’t help,” complained Wolkfolk

“I thought Flare Canada has folded? The hairline & hair… no. The eye makeup… no. That shot… no. That layout… no. Who still adds a shadow over their masthead? Wasn’t that a thing we abandoned since 2005?” slammed MON, unwilling to hold back against the cover.

Luxx wasn’t impressed either, writing, “Where is Gilles Bensimon when the world needs him most?” suggesting Seliger’s photography wasn’t up to scratch.

“I’m not fond of the styling at all, but I completely welcome the sight of someone so new on the cover of a fashion magazine,” voiced tigerrogue, just as things started to shape up for the better.

The cover was a clear winner with RanThe: “I absolutely love the cover! It’s fresh and new and I’m glad Daisy is getting the cover treatment and I’m glad she chose ELLE. Because ELLE has not been that great this year terms of cover choices and images, but nice to leave the best for December!”
