Bella Hadid Dyed Her Hair Blond and Looks Exactly Like Gigi Now

Most of the world was first introduced to Gigi and Bella Hadid back when their mom, Yolanda, was a cast member on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills—and we’ve basically been clocking their every style and beauty move ever since.

As the sisters rose to superstardom in the fashion industry, the easiest way to tell them apart was that Gigi was blond and Bella was brunette. (Which, according to Bella, who’s a natural blond, was intentional.) Of course, they’re not twins, but they certainly do like, well, sisters. But a recent photo Bella shared to her Instagram Stories had fans and followers doing a double take.

The younger Hadid shared a snap of herself with a horse (she’s a big equestrian) in which her hair had been dyed a lighter blond shade. She looks so much like Gigi, it’s crazy. See for yourself below.

We’re not sure the sisters have ever looked more alike. Regardless, the honey blond color looks amazing on Bella and has a perfect summer vibe. We also love seeing some of her natural waves. The supermodel is no stranger to changing up her look—and her hair color. Usually, however, she opts for wigs to make dramatic shifts.

She even captioned a recent Instagram photo, “Character #777.”

Recently, Pinterest revealed that “mushroom blonde” is the most searched hair color this season. But we wouldn’t be surprised to see a variation on Bella Hadid’s beachy, honey highlights begin to rise in the ranks once people see how gorgeous they look. The only question is, how long will she keep this shade and what does she have planned for us next?

The ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot: Everything We Know So Far

Could Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf be making a comeback? Some fans are crossing their fingers after news broke today (July 17) that an updated version of Gossip Girl is officially happening. Yes, the former CW show—based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar— is getting the reboot treatment by WarnerMedia’s soon-to-be-launched streaming service, HBO Max.

Rumors of a Gossip Girl return have been swirling since February. The exact details are still under wraps, but the log line reveals a few clues about what we can expect: “Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The prestige series will address just how much social media—and the landscape of New York itself—has changed in the intervening years,” it reads.

Beyond that, here’s what we know so far about the series.

There will be 10 episodes. According to Deadline, HBO has ordered 10 hour-long episodes of the new version of the show. As the log line shows, it’ll tackle contemporary issues, including social media and online privacy, that have changed some of the dynamics in today’s high schools.

The original creators are behind the new version. Original program creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are going to be executive producers. Joshua Safran, a writer and producer on the OG show, is also on board and in charge of writing the reboot.

There’s no word on the cast yet. While the show will focus on a new generation, fans are hopeful that the stars from the original series will make an appearance.

In past interviews, the cast has had lots of different opinions about a reboot. Chace Crawford (Nate) has signaled before that he wasn’t wild about new episodes with the original stars.

“I don’t think anyone’s been seriously talking about that. I think they’d have to come up with a real plan, and I know Josh and Stephanie would have to be a part of it,” he told Entertainment Tonight in February. “It is funny to me, it’s almost become a classic now. It probably goes to show you that we shouldn’t be redoing it. I can’t be in high school anymore. That’s the thing. I don’t even know what they would do. For me personally, I would love to see everybody again and I loved everybody and I would love to work with everybody, but I don’t know if it’s necessarily a reality.”

Ariel Winter Is Sick of Comparing Herself to Other Women

Right now it’s Lizzo. She’s killing it. She just puts me in a good mood. I put her songs on repeat. Also Billie Eilish. And my queen is Cardi B. She’ll always be my queen. Always, always, always.

How much time do you spend getting ready?

If it’s just in my regular daily life, probably like 30 minutes. If I’m going to an event, it can take an hour, an hour and a half, two hours, depending on how much we’re chatting and whatever we’re doing. The most time it would take is two hours.

What hair products do you swear by?

Definitely argan oil or coconut oil. I used to bleach my hair all the time and do weird colors. I was trying things. My hair was unhealthy because of it, so I had to cut it pretty short, and I was not happy about that. I was like, Oh my god, it’s not going to grow back, I want my long hair again. But I was like, OK, I need to take a break from dying it and let it get healthy. So I started getting into oils. If I add oils to my hair and moisturize, it makes it a lot easier to dye and go back to those colors. I don’t have to cut it so short and be so sad because my inches of hair are on the ground.

I can sense the passion behind this.

It’s so devastating! I saw my hair on the floor and was like…my hair!

Screw, marry or kill: mascara, lipstick, highlighter?

Marry mascara, kill highlighter, and screw lipstick.

You have $20 and free roam of a drugstore or Ulta, what do you buy?

If it’s a drugstore, candy for sure. Candy, candy, candy. At Ulta, I’d probably want a few different tinted lip balms. I could probably get a couple of those for $20.

What’s the last Instagram rabbit hole you went down?

I’m always going down dog Instagram holes. I will look on somebody’s page and go, Oh, that person! And then I’ll see someone’s friend, and click on their friend, and if they have a dog in a photo, I’ll click on that friend. That’s probably the most specific hole I go down, unless I’m looking for a specific meme. My friend always sends me the best memes. I’ll even look at memes from five years ago.

What’s your favorite emoji?

I just got into the gifs in text messages. I like the Twerkin’ Tina from Bob’s Burgers. She’s so awkward. I love it.

Everything We Know About the *Cats* Movie Starring Jennifer Hudson and Taylor Swift

Get ready to have the Cats soundtrack stuck in your head. The beloved Broadway musical is being made into a live-action film directed by Tom Hooper, the Academy-Award winner who also brought a musical version of Les Misérables to the big screen. The best part? Hooper has chosen a jaw-dropping, all-star cast to breathe new life into the story of the Jellicles and the unforgettable compositions by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

In July 2018, news broke that Hooper had cast Taylor Swift in the project. She’ll be playing the role of sassy queen cat Bombalurina, alongside Jennifer Hudson’s Grizabella and Judi Dench’s Old Deuteronomy—and those are just three of the major celebrities involved in the production.

The movie’s first trailer drops on Friday, July 19, and ahead of that we received an interesting behind-the-scenes video featuring the entire cast. Watch it, below:

Here’s everything we know about the movie so far:

The cast is incredible. This movie has some serious star power. In fact, in the behind the scenes video, Hooper compared directing the cast to directing a group of “world-class athletes.” We already have goosebumps imagining Hudson’s rendition of “Memory” (she gave people a snippet of her take in Texas recently), but the film also includes other A-listers. In addition to Hudson, Swift, and Dench, it stars James Corden as Bustopher Jones, Rebel Wilson as Jennyanydots, Jason Derulo as Rum Tum Tugger, Idris Elba as Macavity, and Ian McKellen as Gus the Theatre Cat.

It’s a high-tech production. People have already been wondering how Hooper is going to handle the iconic cat costumes from the Broadway musical. The behind-the-scenes video reveals that he’s going with a combination of costumes and digital technology that will create what he calls “the most perfect covering of fur.”

“These are people, but they’re cats, and it’s kind of blowing my mind,” Corden says in the video. “There is nothing else like it.”

A Gossip Girl Reboot Is Officially, Officially Happening

This is not a drill, people: A Gossip Girl reboot is officially happening.

Entertainment Weekly reports the streaming service HBO Max has ordered 10 episodes of a Gossip Girl revival, with the show’s original creative heads, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, on board as executive producers. Josh Safran, who was both a writer and producer on the OG Gossip Girl, will serve as the reboot’s showrunner.

According to EW, it’s not known at this point if any of the show’s original cast members—including Blake Lively (Serena), Leighton Meester (Blair), and Chace Crawford (Nate)—are returning to the reboot, but most have expressed at least interest in the idea.

“It sort of all depends. Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much. But I’ve just learned in life you never say never,” Lively told Variety in 2017. “I’m looking to do something that I haven’t done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows—if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City.”

Meanwhile, Meester told E! News in 2019, “No one’s ever asked me [about a reboot]. No one’s ever talked to me about it except for in interviews, and I always say the same. I never say never. So I don’t know. No one’s sent me that information, it’s coming from you.”

Penn Badgley (Dan) and Ed Westwick (Chuck) are the only actors who seem to not be so keen on the idea. “I suppose you should never say never. I suppose there are conditions where I would. Do I think those conditions will ever exist? No. But they might,” Badgley told Variety in 2018, while Westwick told The Radio Times in 2017 that the show is “played out” and “done.”

People on Twitter are, naturally, elated with this news:

Reboot details are sparse at this point, but of course we’ll keep you updated as they roll in.

Whether you prefer a one-piece or separates, spaghetti-strapped or one-shouldered, there’s a printed swimsuit out there that fits your summer aesthetic. From Reformation to Target, here are the best tie-dye swim options worth shopping right now.

Is Sound Wave Therapy the Orgasm Treatment of the Future?

I haven’t been paying enough attention to my clitoris. That’s the first thought that floated into my brain as Briana Oster, M.D., a former pediatrician who now works at Revitalize Laser Care’s Denver office, talked me through a diagram of the female sexual organ as I prepared for a non-invasive med spa treatment that promised to improve my orgasms through the use of sound waves. “We’ve been focused on the top part”—the small, external bulb at the top of the vulva—she explained, pointing to an illustration. “But there’s a lot more going on.” Which brought me to my second disconcerting revelation: Have I been having sex all wrong?

Thankfully, I haven’t, you’ll be happy to know, but there’s always room for improvement. Enter Cliovana, a painless, noninvasive treatment which aims to increase arousal levels, orgasm frequency, and orgasm intensity, by stimulating the clitoris via sound waves. I had to know: Was this the future of better orgasms?

Biohacking Your Orgasm

As shocking as it may sound, the full clitoral anatomy wasn’t really known until the 1990s, and we’re still learning about it: It wasn’t until 2009 that the first 3-D image of a clitoris was created. Why’s that important? Because what many of us have long thought of as the clitoris—that external almond-sized nib Oster was talking about—is just the tip, as a fellow writer put it, of the clitoral iceberg. In fact, the clitoris extends much further, surrounding the vulva on either side like a wishbone. Meaning there are a whole bunch more nerve endings that can be aroused to stimulate orgasm than we previously thought.

Lucky for me, orgasming isn’t a routine problem, unless I’m stressed, which, I’ll admit, has been a near-constant state recently. Many women are having a different experience: A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2014 found that just 62.9 percent of women experienced an orgasm with a familiar partner, compared to 85.1 percent of men. Researchers have dubbed this the “orgasm gap.”

At 31 years old, however, I have noticed a reduction in lubrication and that it takes longer to get aroused than it once did. When I heard that Revitalize Denver would be the first clinic in the country to offer Cliovana—I decided to give it a try. If it worked, it’d be a fun, and hopefully stimulating, early wedding present for myself and my fiancé.

At my first appointment, I settled onto the exam table, pants- and underwear-less, with a paper sheet covering my bare lower half. (A pre-appointment email recommended I “trim [my] pubic hair to facilitate better results.”) Dr. Oster had already walked me through the basics: Cliovana uses sound waves to promote the creation of new blood vessels and increase nerve sensitivity—in other words, make your whole clitoris more responsive. Patients receive the $2,000 treatment four times over a two-week period, with each appointment lasting about 10 minutes. (Full disclosure: Revitalize offered me the procedure free of charge.)

Unlike FDA-approved medications or the O-Shot, Cliovana is performed externally, and it’s solely designed to enhance female sexual satisfaction. (While the sound wave device Cliovana uses is FDA-approved, the procedure itself is what’s known as “off-label.”) “We don’t treat a condition,” said Keri Hall, Cliovana’s executive vice president of business development. “It’s for any woman who wants improved sexual satisfaction, orgasm intensity, frequency, and increased arousal levels and lubrication. It’s for any woman who feels as though she’s not completely satisfied.”

The sound wave technology behind Cliovana is relatively well-supported by science for a variety of other uses. It’s been used by urologists to break up kidney stones since the 1970s and more recently, the energy has been directed toward the penis as a potential aid for men dealing with erectile dysfunction. (So far, the clinical trials are promising.) But Cliovana is the first time this sound wave technology has been applied to women’s sexual organs. That may explain why I felt a bit like a lab rat as Oster placed a bell-shaped plastic cup over my clitoral hood, aka the part we all know about; for about three minutes, a gentle tapping ensued, meant to bring blood flow to the surface and prep the area for treatment. It was an odd sensation, but not painful or uncomfortable.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Are Reportedly Bonding Over Motherhood

There are very few people in the world who create headlines at the level of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. But in the year since Markle married Prince Harry, many of those stories have been focused on an alleged “feud” between the two duchesses.

Pitting two high-profile women against each other in the media is nothing new, but things really took a turn for the ridiculous when it came to the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex. Stories ranged from people claiming that Middleton and Prince William were miserable at baby Archie’s christening and that Markle left her sister-in-law in tears before the wedding. Royals expert Katie Nicholls told Glamour back in March that while the two may not be best friends (which is totally normal!) rumors of a feud were overblown.

Now, it seems, the two may be closer than ever before. A source tells People that their relationship is “strengthening.” Another source says that during their Wimbledon outing last week, the two “were genuine and sweet together” that after Markle’s friend Serena Williams lost in the finals, “Kate put her hand out and rubbed Meghan’s back to console her.”

One big reason might be their now-shared role as mothers. “It illustrated a warm relationship between these women who have young babies and are in similar situations in their lives,” royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told the magazine. “They’re each a little more relaxed,” a source says. “They have more in common now.”

The duchesses and all their children were recently spotted at a charity polo match that Harry and William were playing in. Prince Louis was hamming it up for his Aunt Meghan and cousin Archie while his mom beamed in the background. “Babies are a great leveler,” Arbiter said. “The minute you’re bonding over your stories and sleepless nights, suddenly all the stuff that mattered before doesn’t matter anymore.”

Blue Ivy Steals the Show in Beyoncé’s New ‘Spirit’ Music Video

It’s becoming increasingly clear who the true star of the Knowles-Carter family is—and it’s Blue Ivy. The 7-year-old takes center stage in her mom Beyoncé‘s new “Spirit” video, a song from the new live-action remake of The Lion King. (Bey plays Nala in the film.)

In the video, Bey and Jay-Z’s eldest child looks so much like her mom as she joins her in a scene desert scene, walking over to Beyoncé and taking her hand. It’s perfectly juxtaposed with a moment from the film where young Simba steps into his father’s pawprint. The pair are wearing similar pink flowing dresses and long curls, surrounded by a group of female dancers. It’s a poignant and powerful moment in the video and certainly proves that Blue has inherited her mother’s X-factor.

The song’s lyrics are incredibly inspiring as well: “Spirit, can you hear it calling?/ Yeah/ Your destiny is coming close, stand up and fight/ So go into that far-off land/ And be one with the great I am, I am.” Who doesn’t love a Beyoncé power ballad?

The rest of the video is filled with equally stunning visuals featuring large groups of dancers wearing vibrant colors alongside Beyoncé. And yes, you do get to see clips from The Lion King interspersed. We see some sweet moments between Simba (Donald Glover) and Beyoncé’s Nala, as well as shots of the fatal fight between Scar and Mufasa, and those pesky hyenas.
