Liam Hemsworth Was Reportedly ‘Blindsided’ by Miley Cyrus’s First Statement About Their Split

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth‘s breakup was one of the most talked-about celebrity news stories of the summer. The couple, who dated for a decade and tied the knot last December, announced their split via a statement from Cyrus’s rep: “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” it read. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

So many people were surprised to read this—including, according to Page Six, Hemsworth, who was reportedly “blindsided” by the statement. Per the publication, the actor wasn’t given a heads-up about the statement going public. He just saw it on his social media feed—like the rest of us.

Take this information with a grain of salt, obviously. It’s possible Hemsworth knew about the actual statement but not the roll-out plan. And it’s also possible this isn’t true at all. That being said, a second source tells Page Six that, before this breakup announcement, Hemsworth was trying to work on the marriage and didn’t want to go public with any information. Other sources say the same thing about Cyrus: that she “fought” to make the relationship work. As always, though, we won’t know anything for sure until Miley Cyrus or Liam Hemsworth makes a comment.

Which might not happen any time soon. Please see: Hemsworth’s only comment about the split, which he posted to Instagram on August 12. “Hi, all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward,” he wrote. “This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets.”

Hija de tu Madre Is on a Mission to ‘Latinx-ify Fashion’

“For us, it’s always been important to have a charitable element to what we do…[and] stay in touch with what’s going on and affecting our community,” Delgado says. “It’s obviously really important to be positive and keep empowering our people, but at the same time, I can’t be a Latinx brand if I’m not aware of the issues that are affecting our community. I love to bring issues to light and to be able to share these conversations with our customers.” She’s also collaborated with fellow Latinx entrepreneurs, like how she partnered with Rizos Curls for Hija de tu Madre to have a booth at L.A.’s Beautycon. (They’re collaborating once again on a “LAtina” jewelry collection timed to Latinx Heritage Month.)

While Delgado admitted there have been various challenges to being a Latina in both the entrepreneurial and fashion spaces, she said one recurring theme is the need to convince people that the Latinx consumer is mainstream.

“There’s this notion that Latinx is still a minority and it’s not. We’re leading the most entrepreneurial business growth in the United States,” she says. “We overspend and over index in a lot of different buying categories. We are mainstream and I think that’s definitely the message that we’re trying to get across with our brand—that yes, anyone can buy Hija de tu Madre, but it’s very important that the world recognizes that Latinx aren’t going anywhere.”

Despite their spending power (estimated to grow to $1.7 trillion in the U.S. by 2020), Latinx consumers are not often represented in fashion—though, their aesthetic has frequently been co-opted or used as a source of inspiration. Think of all the music videos, editorials, runways, and red-carpet moments from the ‘90s to today that are reminiscent of chola style, deemed “stylish” when worn by white women.

Delgado says that Hija de tu Madre isn’t necessarily reclaiming this aesthetic, but rather making room for authentic Latinx brands to flourish.

“It’s not so much taking back space, it’s creating our own space where we can feel free and safe to express identity,” Delgado says. “Cultural appropriation does happen and it sucks, but my customer isn’t as distracted by it. I think it’s really important for us to be able to distinguish what’s authentic, what’s ours, and keep creating our own representation.”

Face Fillers: Your Ultimate Guide to Treatments and Costs

Simon Ourian, M.D., whose Beverly Hills clinic Epione is particularly popular for injectables, counts lips as one of his most-requested treatments. He estimates the average cost at $2,900 to $4,900. “Fillers can be charged by units or by area,” he says. “In my practice, we charge by area to achieve the desired look each patient wants instead of limiting them to a certain amount of units per area.” That pricing model may also be due to the fact that he compounds his own formations with FDA-approved fillers. “For a more youthful, plumped appearance, I use a combination a of hydrophilic-based fillers and a non-hydrophilic formula to create a more defined appearance for areas such as the lip boarders,” he says.

Dendy Engelman, M.D. prefers a thinner, softer product made from hyaluronic acid like Juvederm Volbella for lips. In her clinic, they charge by the syringe, so based on the amount of product you need, the starting price is typically $1,000 to $1,400. (And FYI, to get the look most influencers have, it’s typically two to three syringes, if not more.)

Cheeks

Want more lifted and sculpted cheekbones? There’s filler for that. But the midface is an area where you might see a cannula more commonly used than a needle. “Cannulas are blunt-tipped thin tubes used for filler placement,” says Weiser. Because they lack the sharp tip of a needle, they’re less likely to be inserted directly into a blood vessel, causing potential complications that can be as severe as blindness. “The one drawback of the cannula is that they are not quite as precise as needles so occasionally more product volume is needed, or the result may be slightly less exact than intended,” she adds. “Many experienced providers choose to use a combination of cannula for large scale injections and than a needle for the fine and more precise aspects.”

Your dermatologist or plastic surgeon will apply or inject a local anesthetic to the treated area, create an opening with a needle, and slide the cannula in. As for the technique and cost, that depends on the result you want. “The midface loses fat and structural support from the cheekbone resulting in a flattening and shadowing of your cheek,” says Weiser. “Filler can be used along the cheekbone to a more youthful contour to your cheeks.” She estimates that this type of midface injection can cost around $1,200, and typically those getting this treatment tend to be older and have already lost volume in their cheeks due to aging. But, again, if you want the “Instagram face” look, there’s also the option to contour your cheeks, creating a sharper, lifted cheekbone instead of making your midface look fuller. Expect that to start around $650.

Temples

Temples are another area of the face that will lose fat and become hollow over time, according to Weiser. You likely won’t need too much product here, but pricing also factors in complexity of treatment. “Treating a temple hollow could cost $1,500 or more,” she says. This is one of those “no-filler filler” treatments where if done correctly, it won’t look like you’ve had any work done. Currently, this isn’t an FDA-approved use, although licensed practitioners do often use injectibles off-label (like jaw Botox for teeth grinding).

Jawline

Some patients ask for jawline filler in order to compensate for loss of bone structure over time, while others simply want to sculpt a more angular profile. Ourian cites jawline contouring as the most popular treatment in his clinic. “For a chiseled appearance, I created a calcium-based and hyaluronic acid formula,” he says, estimating the cost tends range between $3,900 to $5,900. (Note again, that this is off-label use.)

Don’t Be Mad, But I’m a Feminist Who Decided to Write a Book About Men

And to be clear, I’m not suggesting we need a men’s studies department to counter a women’s studies program. I have a women’s studies degree, and it was enriching and relevant. Earning it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. But as the writer Rebecca Traister has warned us, it’s because we are asking women to overthrow their own bed mates (and our fathers, sons, brothers, friends and even colleagues) that our revolution needs a detailed plan for what to do with its men. A feminism with no plan for making better men is a feminism that will liberate women in name only, while at the same time leaving them with the daily burdens of unpaid bills, ER visits, bruised and broken bones, dead marriages, and silent Sunday dinners.

Four years ago, I set on a reporting journey to try and understand what was going on with men, who had begun to seem to me increasingly lost and out of touch. What I found was that without a plan for men, boys are failing in obvious ways.

Find that hard to believe? Well, boys are lagging behind girls in education at every degree level. Since 1982, women have received 10 million more degrees than men. And the number of black men who entered medicine in 2014 is smaller than the number who entered in 1978, which has translated into a literal shortage of black male doctors. And at home, men suffer, too. The research is almost unanimous: Especially as men grown older, they consistently report fewer social ties, a lack of deep friendships, and less contact with their close or extended families than women do. Middle-aged men remain the least likely demographic to be in therapy despite being the most likely to benefit from it (given that they’re at highest risk of dying by suicide). Men and boys need support but are stuck in a world that’s convinced them they need none.

If feminism is committed to bettering the lives of women, it needs to be a gender-neutral movement, full stop. And as a younger, more gender-fluid generation comes of age, it’s no longer in the interest of our cause to limit who benefits from feminism.

Not least because when men don’t evolve, it’s a tax on women, particularly those who are already disenfranchised. When I interviewed them for my book, women of all ages told me the same thing over and over again. They didn’t feel married to men, they felt like rehab centers for them. They didn’t feel excited about having sons, they felt worried about them. Why would we want to maintain the status quo, when it’s neither liberating women nor helping men?

The New Rules of Wearing Leggings: Kendall Jenner Edition

Sure, leggings are one of the most comfortable garments out there. But they can be tricky to style outside of the gym or airport. Leave it to Kendall Jenner to offer non-stop inspiration for how to wear them in ways that actually feel super chic. Based on street style, it seems like the model hasn’t met a pair of stretch pants she doesn’t like. (It helps that she has a deal with Adidas.) She’s been spotted wearing leggings with neon windbreakers and as part of cozy matching sets; she’s picked out styles with mesh cutouts and made from shiny patent material. Basically, she’s rewritten any “rules” that existed about how to wear leggings—and it’s the weekend style inspiration you need.

Ahead, see how to wear your leggings à la Kendall Jenner.

Demi Lovato and Mike Johnson’s Relationship: A Complete Timeline

The Bachelorette is the new celebrity Tinder, it seems. On the heels of Gigi Hadid and Tyler Cameron’s burgeoning relationship, there are rumors that Demi Lovato and another Bachelorette star, Mike Johnson, are dating.

It makes sense why this is becoming a trend: Viewers get to see these contestants go on dates and, from there, can imagine how they might be in a relationship. And if you’re super famous person, like Demi Lovato, you can probably easily slide into their DMs and get a response.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s reportedly going on between Lovato and Johnson.

July 2019: Lovato proved herself to be one diehard Bachelorette fangirl—for a certain contestant, anyway. She posted an Instagram Story showing footage of Johnson on the show with the caption “Mike I accept your rose.” Per People, she could be heard saying “Swing me, kiss me! Boo boo,” referring to Johnson, naturally.

On July 2, after he was eliminated, Johnson wrote on Twitter, “Jus saying, my future wife though girl you ready for smiles, adventure, comfort, growth, honesty, laughter, me falling using my inhaler and kissing your stretch marks and imperfections. Where u hiding.”

Safe to say, Lovato was not hiding. A fan posted a ‘gram showing his tweet plus another fan’s that read “it’s your chance demi,” and Lovato was there for it. “I’M RIGHT HERE MIKE I’M RIGHT HERE BOO MY MOM ALREADY LOVES YOU TOO,” she wrote. Yes to being bold about those feelings!

September 5: Lovato posted a gorgeous unedited bikini pic to Instagram that was accompanied by a caption about self-love and getting over body hang-ups. Johnson was absolutely there for it, writing “Look at me like that again…love yaself.”

September 14: An “insider” (take it for what you will!) told E! that the two “did go on a date, and it’s been going well. They seem to have a lot in common and are just enjoying getting to know each other.”

Beyoncé Just Announced a Surprise Behind-the-Scenes Documentary, and It’s Dropping Tomorrow

Just when we thought we had our slate of TV shows and movies all lined up for the week, Beyoncé and ABC went and announced a surprise documentary that’s going to drop Monday night. (That’s tomorrow, September 16, just to be clear.) And honestly? You’re probably going to want to clear your schedule for it.

Bey and the network teamed up to gift us with the doc, titled Making the Gift. Although pretty much everything Beyoncé does is a gift, if we’re being honest, this particular documentary specifically follows the making of her companion album—titled The Gift—for this year’s Disney reboot of The Lion King, in which she played Nala.

The network announced the documentary in a tweet Sunday evening—and even went so far as to change its name on Twitter to ABeyC, which is extremely appropriate. Along with a short, 30-second trailer for the documentary, ABeyC revealed at exactly what time the documentary will drop: 10 P.M. ET. (Set an iCal alarm now!)

Per Rolling Stone, the documentary will give viewers an “intimate” look at the genesis of each and every song from the album, which features an incredible array of talent from Childish Gambino (who plays Simba in the reboot) to Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar—plus a ton of incredible African musicians from Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, and Cameroon. Beyond that, viewers will also be treated to glimpses of the work that went into The Gift‘s music videos and recording sessions.

Check out the trailer for the ABC ABeyC documentary below:

Beyoncé’s gifted us with surprise drops before—hello, Homecoming—and consider us here for another. Now, who’s going to bring the popcorn?

Cara Delevingne Opened Up About How Dating Ashley Benson Has Changed Her

When Cara Delevingne and actress Ashley Benson began dating a little over a year ago, Delevingne seemed to keep her personal life a little closer to the vest. Which, fair enough: She’s a celebrity—boundaries must be set! But having Benson in the picture, said Delevingne in a recent Porter interview, has led her to become a more open, trusting person who no longer ‘pushes people away.’ Ah, love.

“I’d never truly let anyone in before, for fear of them leaving,” Delevingne said of life before Benson in the interview, published Friday (September 13). “I never really trusted people, or felt worthy of it, and I always pushed them away.”

But with Benson, she says, that just wasn’t an option: “She’s the first person that has said, ‘You can’t push me away. I’m going to be nice to you, I love you.’ I’m just like, wait, so all I have to do is just let you be nice to me? Why have I never done that before?”

This isn’t the first time the two revealed little bits and pieces of their romance. In June, the duo revealed they were officially dating by posting a video of them kissing on set. The pair even appears to have inked their love with tattoos referencing one another.

Earlier in September, Delevingne shared a bit more of her romantic life during an interview with Elle UK. After the interviewer asked her what love felt like for her, Delevingne replied, “I’m just better when I’m in love.”

“That doesn’t have to mean with someone,” she added. “It can also mean with myself. It just feels incredible when you’re not alone, when you’re facing the world with someone else.”

As to why the pair keep their relationship out of the public eye, Delevingne told Elle UK, “Because it’s sacred. I get why people care so much, and I don’t want to be so secretive that people think I’m ashamed of anything… But I’ve never been in a relationship where things are so public, or where I posted pictures of someone else. This seemed different. We had gotten to the point where we had kept it a secret, or at least not wanted attention, and now I feel like I’m not going to not be proud. Which isn’t the same thing as wanting to pose on a red carpet together, either.”

Each couple has their own style—and it certainly seems like Delevingne and Benson have found the balance that works right for them.

Kim Kardashian Says She ‘Got in Trouble’ With Kanye West for Letting Daughter North Wear Lipstick

Kim Kardashian seems like a pretty cool mom: Despite her busy schedule, she appears to spend plenty of time doting on her children, bringing them along for epic vacations, and ensuring they have plenty of time with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner dynasty. But, there’s one thing she does as a mom that apparently infuriates her husband, Kanye West: She’s been known to let daughter North West, 6, wear lipstick from time to time.

Since her birth, North has followed in her mom’s stylish footsteps, often wearing pieces from her own wardrobe of designer clothes. She’s been spotted rocking a $750 Alexander Wang Marti Micro leopard-print shoulder bag to school (I mean, who would say no if that were sent to them?) and walked the runway at Los Angeles Fashion Week. And, on special occasions, she’s been spotted wearing bright red lipstick a time or two.

Kim’s been mom-shamed for her decision to let her young daughter wear makeup in the past. In 2018, little North was spotted with a red lip that Kim later revealed was part of Kim’s very own line. “She picked it,” Kim explained on Twitter.

But now, Kim says, Kanye has had enough with North’s makeup.

“She loves makeup but her dad won’t let her wear it,” Kim recently shared with E! News. “I think he had it, he changed all the rules. I’d let her wear, you know, she has a little red for Christmas, I’d let her wear a red lip, or I’d let her do one pop of something. I’d let her, if she’s wearing a black dress, a black lip.”

Kim also shared that she’s not the only member of the Kardashian-Jenner family that Kanye may have to worry about when it comes to giving their children makeup to play with.

“Kylie would give her all of these lip kits, so I kind of got in trouble for that,” she said. “So, it’s now no more makeup.”

However, Kim also shared that her eldest child can still “weigh in” on her mom’s fashion choices—so we’re sure to have peeks at North’s taste-making skills for years to come, lipstick or no.

Hailey Bieber Just Spoke Out About Defining Her Own Success

Hailey Bieber might be killing it at her career and happily married to a certain Justin Bieber, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t suffer the same anxieties as the rest of us. As she opened up about in a recent interview, one of those includes having to work through the so-called “imposter syndrome” she’s felt working in the modeling industry, despite all her success.

Bieber, who graces the October cover of Vogue Australia, sat down with the magazine to not only discuss life with her famous husband but to also discuss what it’s like to be in an industry where your coworkers are Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

“My burn in the modeling industry has been slow, and I’ve had to learn to be okay with that,” she shared with the magazine about her career trajectory. “I’m shorter than most of the girls. Even though I’m 5-foot-8 [inches], I’m not a runway girl and I totally used to feel inferior to some of my friends. Look at Kendall [Jenner] and Bells [Bella Hadid] and Gigi [Hadid] … they’re all tall and doing every runway.”

According to Bieber, it took her a long time to come to terms with the fact that her career might take a slightly different path than her friends.

“For a while, there was a part of me that didn’t know if I could have the career I wanted if I couldn’t do runway,” she said. “I don’t think that anymore. I had so many people, like casting directors, say, ‘We don’t think she’s a real model.’”

Bieber shared that she felt disappointed about that for a long time—until she realized she could enjoy her own journey too.

“It was disappointing until I found my own lane. I don’t look short in photos. You can make it work and not have to do runway, and I’ve done a good job with that,” she shared. “I’m proud of myself for building a more commercial career that worked for me and being confident about it. I’ve hosted a show, I did major American campaigns, and a bunch of other things that I’ve really enjoyed. Sometimes I feel like I’m still finding my lane, but now I know I’m going in the right direction.”

She’s still thinking about her next projects, too: According to Bieber, she’d love to one day design and own her own collection. She’d also like to start a beauty brand if her husband is willing to lend her their last name.

“I couldn’t register it myself, because Justin owns all trademarking for his last name,” Bieber said. “Honestly, that was more about being proactive. I’m not sure how I want to dip into that space, and it’s been a conversation between me and my husband.”
