23 Incredibly Soft Teddy Coats to Live in This Fall

When we dig out our fall wardrobes every year, we’re always pleasantly reminded of our love for the best teddy coats. For the past few seasons, it was I.Am.Gia’s Pixie jacket (or a version of it) that dominated the internet—and our closet space. (For the uninitiated, it’s a caramel confection with giant front pockets and an oversized fit roomy enough for layering, but not bulky like an actual winter coat.) Much like the Amazon Coat, I.Am.Gia’s beloved style has sold out many times over the years, and retailers at every price point have caught on to the appeal of dressing oneself in a giant sherpa blanket.

For starters, the style plays well with pretty much anything in your fall wardrobe (think sweatpants, leggings, high-rise denim), and the material…well, let’s just say the soft faux fur feels as if you’re being hugged by a luxe teddy bear. Brands like Apparis, Mango, and Stand Studio now have their own teddy jacket iterations—so we corralled them into this warm-and-fuzzy gallery to help you find your next furry companion.

Whether you want an oversized half-zip, shearling bomber, or teddy coat in a color that’s not exactly subtle (bubblegum pink, anyone?), you’re guaranteed to find something worthy of swaddling yourself in. Shop the 23 best teddy coats—ahem, cocoons—ahead.

See All the Looks From the 2021 Met Gala

The Met gala 2021 went down on Monday, September 13 in all its glamorous glory. Things looked a little different with COVID-19 restrictions, but the most important part stayed the same: The Met gala outfits were stunning. 

Were they as buzz-worthy as 2019’s “camp” theme—which gave us Kendall Jenner in feathers and Harry Styles in that break-the-Internet look? We’ll let you be the judge of that. But the celebrities brought their A-game this time as always, representing American designers for the Met gala 2021 theme “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”

If you tuned into the Met Gala red carpet live stream, you may have already seen some of these looks. But for the ones you missed, check out a gallery of all the looks, below.

Britney Spears Debuts a New Red-Dipped Hair Cut

Britney Spears has a new hair look. The pop icon took to Instagram on September 13, one day after announcing her engagement to Sam Asghari, to debut a new, shoulder-length chop with cool, red-dipped ends. 

“I was kinda inspired 😎😜😂 to go red and then I cut all my hair off and now I feel like a brand new woman,” Spears wrote. See the look for yourself, below. 

Spears also used the caption as a chance to address the paparazzi who she says are taking unfair shots of her. “I really don’t appreciate the paparazzi giving me a double chin while I’m driving in my car 🙄 … you fucking assholes 😡 !!!” she wrote. “But hey it’s Hollywood and as Madonna says, how can it hurt you when it looks so good ???” (That’s a reference to Madonna’s 2003 song, “Hollywood.”) 

The Glory singer continued in her caption, “I’ve had my fair share of embarrassing pics and it’s not the pictures that upset me … I think it’s the arrogant sarcasm and people talking shit that goes with it !!! Oh well … I try to stay far away from it all and believe I’m doing a pretty damn good job at that lately ..” 

Yes, she is. She doubled down on her messaging in a separate IG post. “People love to talk shit so … KISS MY ASS 😈💋🍑 !!!!!!” she wrote.

Britney Spears seems happier than ever these days. News broke last week her father, Jamie, filed a petition to end the conservatorship she’s been under for 13 years. Shortly after, her engagement to longtime boyfriend Asghari was confirmed. 

“[Sam is] ready for marriage and kids with Britney and is serious about the relationship. She wants to take that next step and have that full life with him,” a source told People about Asghari. “As a couple they’ve hidden how they’ve really felt even from people close to them because they were anxious and scared, but now it’s all out there.”

Britney Spears Says Her Engagement to Sam Asghari Was ‘Way Overdue’

Britney Spears is celebrating her engagement by posting a thirst trap of her fiancé, Sam Asghari.

On September 13, one day after debuting her stunning engagement ring, Spears shared a photo of Ashghari from a Men’s Health photoshoot he did and reflected over her excitement. “Words can’t even say how shocked I am 💍 … geez although the asshole was way overdue,” she wrote in the caption of the image, which you can see here. “It was definitely worth the wait …. yes world … that beautiful fucking man in that picture is MINE 😍 !!! I’m so blessed it’s insane 🌹🌹🌹 !!!!”

They announced the big news on September 12 with another Instagram post. In the video, the pair silently show off the rock on Spears’s finger. “I can’t fucking believe it,” she wrote in the caption. “💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️!!!!!!”

“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication, and love expressed to them,” Asghari’s manager Brandon Cohen shared in a statement, according to People, adding he is “proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement.”

Early in September, Britney Spears’s father, Jamie, filed a petition to end the conservatorship she’s been under for 13 years. It’s possible this is what prompted Asghari’s proposal.

“[Sam is] ready for marriage and kids with Britney and is serious about the relationship. She wants to take that next step and have that full life with him,” a source told People about Asghari. “As a couple they’ve hidden how they’ve really felt even from people close to them because they were anxious and scared, but now it’s all out there.”

Britney Spears met Sam Asghari in 2016 on the set of her music video for “Slumber Party.” Earlier this morning, the fitness model took to Instagram to address fan concerns that Spears may not request a prenup

“My phone exploded today! Thank you for the overwhelming love and congratulations,” he wrote in a cheeky Instagram Story. “We both love every single one of you! Thank you for your concern about the prenup! Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.”

Jennifer Aniston Says She ‘Understands’ Those David Schwimmer Dating Rumors

Jennifer Aniston has graciously addressed one of the most chaotic rumors of all time.

These days, anyone can say whatever they want online, and people might take it seriously enough to believe it’s true. Over the summer, for example, questionable rumors surfaced that Friends stars Aniston and David Schwimmer were dating IRL. And people believed them.

The rumors were born out of a speculative report in the U.K. publication Closer detailing the time Aniston and Schwimmer were allegedly spending together. During the Friends reunion, which aired on HBO Max in May, Schwimmer admitted he initially had a crush on Aniston. In return, Aniston admitted to having a crush on Schwimmer. (I mean, who wouldn’t have a crush on Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer in 1994?)

“The first season I had a major crush on Jen,” Schwimmer said in the reunion. In response, Aniston said, “It was reciprocated.” 

“At some point, we were crushing hard on each other,” Schwimmer said. “But it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship, and we never crossed that boundary. We respected that.” 

Schwimmer and Aniston added that instead of turning their romance into a real one, they kept it professional and channeled their crushes into their performances together. 

In August, Schwimmer’s reps confirmed the IRL dating rumors were false. Aniston is aware of the chatter, as well, and recently told Entertainment Tonight exactly how she feels about it. 

“That was bizarre,” she said. “I could not believe that, actually. Like, really? That’s my brother! But I understand it, though. It just shows you how hopeful people are for fantasies for dreams to come true.”

Aniston is clearly aware of the deep nostalgic connection people have with Ross and Rachel, but she’s not letting fans run wild. She and Schwimmer were acting on Friends, after all. Maybe they were just too good at it. 

34 Celebrities Who Went Blonde and Completely Transformed Their Look

Hollywood may be filled with blonde celebrities, but that doesn’t mean they were naturally born with the shade. In fact, it’s one of the most popular ways for a brunette or red-headed star to change up their look. Season two of The Other Two even pokes fun at this concept in a recent episode—when teen pop star Chase Dreamz needs a quick career boost, his dyes his hair blonde. It becomes the top trending story of the day. 

Going blonde can completely transform a star’s look and vibe, but it’s not a light decision to make. Bleaching can damage hair, and it requires a lot of maintenance. There’s a lot of room for error, though these now-blonde celebrities do have access to the best stylists in the world to help them through the process. 

Below, you’ll see some of the most successful examples of celebrities who went blonde and totally transformed. Some only adopted the new look temporarily, while others decided to stick it out. And all of them made us wonder: Maybe blondes really do have more fun? 

Billie Eilish

Grammy winner Billie Eilish signified a new era of her music by replacing her iconic green roots and long black hair with a platinum blonde bob in March 2021. Since then, Eilish has kept up the blonde look, with no roots—neon or natural—in sight.

Florence Pugh

Oscar nominee and noted Instagram chef Florence Pugh has sported several shades of both brunette and blonde throughout her career, but lately she’s been rocking a sun-kissed shade that looks incredible. 

Zendaya

Zendaya looks good in everything she wears—including a blonde pixie wig. The beauty and style icon decided to experiment with a new look at the 2017 British Fashion Awards, writing on Instagram, “A platinum blonde pixie tonight cause why not?” 

Karwai Tang

Selena Gomez

In April 2021, singer, actor, and makeup mogul Selena Gomez said goodbye to her natural hair color and hello to life as a blonde. Gomez debuted the new look on the Instagram account for her makeup company Rare Beauty. The unique shade, dubbed Vintage Blonde, took “200 foils, several bowls of bleach, and 8 hours of hair magic” to achieve, according to her stylists. 

Shailene Woodley

The Big Little Lies star has experimented with blonde hair a couple of times. First in 2014, when she bleached her short hair. She later debuted a beachy blonde look on the 2017 Emmys red carpet. Woodley never seems to stick with the blonde for too long—it is a lot of upkeep—but it seems she likes to dip her toes in the blonde pool every now and then. 

Jon Kopaloff

Rihanna 

This billionaire icon loves a next-level hairstyle, so it’s not so surprising to know that she’s gone blonde several times, most notably at the 2012 Grammys.

Chris Messina

Sharp Objects and The Mindy Project star Chris Messina surprised many at the 2019 Emmys when he showed up with bleached hair. It turns out the change was for his role as Victor Zsasz in Birds of Prey. Special thanks to director Cathy Yan for making this happen.  

George Pimentel

Jonah Hill

The Superbad actor first started changing up his color around 2018, debuting a new look at the Game Awards. Since then, he’s kept his hair more or less like that.

Matt Winkelmeyer

Anne Hathaway

After bleaching her hair for a role in the movie Serenity, the Oscar winner revealed that the change had an unexpected upside. “I felt funnier!” she told W. “I don’t know why, but I just felt that I could be funnier while saying less. I know that doesn’t make any sense, but it was just—it’s nice. And it also made me want to do it more in life, like, just mess around with [my hair] and not get too fixed on anything.”

Dimitrios Kambouris

Cynthia Erivo

Cynthia Erivo has been rocking blonde hair since 2015. In an April 2017 interview with Essence, the actor described the change as a “light bulb.” “You can’t miss me,” she explained. “I just stopped being afraid of my face. My hair was really long, and I just want to spend less time doing it and have you see my face. Never want to hide behind hair. It’s fun and easy to dress.”

Amy Sussman

Olivia Colman

Best Actress Winner Olivia Colman decided to attend the 2020 Oscars with bleached hair, a much different look from the brunette hair she had when she won her Oscar for The Favourite in 2019.

Amy Sussman

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande made headlines when she dyed her signature brunette high ponytail blonde back in 2018 to ring in her Sweetener era. The pop princess has pretty much kept things platinum ever since. 

Robin Marchant

Lucy Hale

The Pretty Little Liars star didn’t let her iconic turn as Aria Montgomery keep her from playing around with her color. The actor revealed a lemon-honey blonde bob back in April 2021, but she was already back to her favored chocolate brown shade by August. 

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato has gone blonde multiple times throughout their career, but the most recent dip into the platinum pond was back in November 2020.

C Flanigan

Lily Collins

Though Lily Collins was blonde as a child, a dark brunette has become her signature look. However, briefly returned to her roots in 2017 while keeping her brows their natural shade. 

Emilia Clarke

Although Daenerys Targaryen’s signature silver hair probably convinced you that the Emmy-nominated actress who played her is blonde, Emilia Clarke is actually a natural brunette. In 2017, Clarke went blonde again, but has since returned to her natural shade because the bleach dried out her hair.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart has shown herself to be down to experiment with her hair color, though lately the Spencer star kept her hair consistently blonde and short a la Princess Diana. Stewart first went platinum in 2016.

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin

Leighton Meester

It’s hard to picture Blair Waldorf in any shade of hair but her signature chocolate brown. But did you know that the actor who plays her is a natural blonde? Leighton Meester dyed her hair for her iconic Gossip Girl role—and in 2018, she went platinum for the first time. “It’s definitely a shock every time I see it in a mirror, but in a good way—it’s a makeover, it’s really fun,” she told Elle.

Michael Tran

Zoë Kravitz

Our next Catwoman debuted her platinum hair in 2016. Kravitz isn’t platinum anymore, but she experimented while she had it with long braids, a bob, and a pixie cut.

Paul Zimmerman

Pete Davidson

Twenty-first century heartthrob and comedian Pete Davidson often makes headlines for the women he’s dating (remember when he went to a Rangers game with Kate Beckinsale?)—but in 2018, he made news for a different reason: going platinum. 

Jeff Kravitz

Emma Stone

Emma Stone is known for her red hair, but every now and then the Oscar winner opts for her natural blonde. In 2010, Stone went blonde for her role as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man films and has pivoted between red, brunette, blonde, and everything in between ever since. In 2017, Stone went full platinum. 

Frederick M. Brown

Taraji P. Henson

Taraji. P. Henson is known for her classic brown bob, but the Empire star has gone blonde a few times. Below, check out the sleek honey bob she wore to the MTV TV & Movie Awards in 2017. 

Jason LaVeris

Katy Perry

Ever since Madonna, it’s common to see pop stars change up their look with each album cycle. Katy Perry, known for her dark brown hair, has also tried blue, green, pink, and blonde. At the 2017 MTV Music Awards, Perry debuted an adorable platinum pixie cut. Perry later shared on Ellen that all the bleaching she did caused her hair to fall out so she chopped it off to get rid of the damage. Since then, Perry has grown out her hair and maintained the blonde for the most part. 

Cara Delevingne

The model and actor has gone from blonde to brunette and back several times, even trying out a short platinum look somewhere between a pixie and a buzz cut. Extra points for painting her bald head silver at the 2017 Met Gala.

Solange

Solange looks good in everything she does, including the platinum blonde she debuted during New York Fashion Week 2017.

Frazer Harrison

Bella Hadid

When the Hadid sisters rose to fame, they each rocked a signature shade: Bella’s the brunette, Gigi’s the blonde. But in Summer 2019, Bella did the unthinkable: bleached her hair lighter than her sister’s!

JP Yim

Kim Kardashian

Is there a look Kimberly hasn’t attempted? She’s been honey blonde, platinum (including her eyebrows!), and rocked long light waves. She’s even played trickster and used wigs to experiment with lighter styles since as far back as 2009.

Donato Sardella

Kylie Jenner

Speaking of wigs, Kylie Jenner often employs them to create dramatic transformations. But she blonde dyed her hair in 2016, and it only took nine hours.

ANGELA WEISS

Kendall Jenner

The youngest KarJenner has gone blonde a number of times, including in Fall 2019 when she walked the runway for Balmain with her hair highlighted honey. A model’s gotta do what a model’s gotta do.

Jared Leto

Remember when Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto went platinum at the same time? 2015 was a big year for peroxide, apparently. The chameleon-like actor bleached not only his hair but his eyebrows to achieve an intense look. Maybe he was trying to reference his character in Fight Club, but it actually reminded us more of the white-haired Karl Lagerfeld. Um, biopic, anyone?

Joe Jonas

Joe Jonas has been on and off with blonde styles through the years, though he has always wisely kept his brows and facial stubble dark. It suits him!

Zayn Malik

Is this the look that made Gigi swoon? Hard to say, because the singer has been a chameleon with his hair ever since he bleached it in 2015

Lindsay Lohan

Though iconically a ginger, Lindsay Lohan channeled Marilyn Monroe when she went platinum. And like Marilyn, Lindsay’s had her ups and downs, leading one writer to create an interesting theory that the actor’s color can predict her state of mind.

Miley Cyrus

Wait, is that Miley or Hannah? Though being brunette was essential to the plot of her Disney Channel show, adult Miley Cyrus has skewed much closer to the Barbie blonde of her godmother, Dolly Parton, ever since she debuted honey hair in 2012.

Britney Spears’s Fiancé, Sam Asghari, Replies to Fans’ Comments About Him Signing a Prenup

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari have a message for all the strangers who keep telling them to get a prenup. 

On September 12, the couple announced their engagement—several days after Spears’s father, Jamie, filed a petition to end her conservatorship. And right before the  VMAs! Iconic!

The pop icon’s Instagram was soon flooded with congratulatory messages, as well as comments urging her to get a prenup. Even Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer chimed in. 

And Asghari has issued a cheeky response. The fitness model wrote on Instagram Stories, “My phone exploded today! Thank you for the overwhelming love and congratulations! We both love every single one of you! Thank you for your concern about the prenup! Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.”

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari met in 2016 on the set of her music video for “Slumber Party.” “The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication, and love expressed to them,” Asghari’s manager Brandon Cohen shared in a statement on September 12, according to People.

“He’s ready for marriage and kids with Britney and is serious about the relationship. She wants to take that next step and have that full life with him,” a source told People about Asghari. “As a couple they’ve hidden how they’ve really felt even from people close to them because they were anxious and scared, but now it’s all out there.”

Meanwhile, Asghari himself told Forbes, “My priorities in life are to remain humble and understand where I came from and where I’m going. I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well. I don’t mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad.”

How to Livestream the 2021 Met Gala

The Met gala 2021 is happening—albeit four months later than normal. Instead of the first Monday in May, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit is going down this year the second Monday in September. The COVID-19 pandemic postponed fashion’s biggest night (in 2020 it outright canceled it), but the show is still going on. 

So what can we expect? A Blake Lively Met gala dress like the pink one she wore in 2016? A Blake Lively Met gala 2018 moment (i.e., red, dramatic, and Versace)? Can you tell I want Blake Lively to attend the Met gala this year? Please, Blake Lively, attend the Met gala!

Whether she’s there or not, the Met gala 2021 will surely be star-studded. If you’re a commoner like me, though, you’ll be enjoying the festivities from home in sweat pants. Thankfully, a Met gala stream is happening, so you won’t miss a single moment. 

Below, check out all the ways you can watch the Met ’ala this year. 

Watch it on streaming.

“In the end, it’s for our guests, and it’s for the museum,” Anna Wintour, a chairwoman of the event and Vogue editor in chief, told Today in 2019 about the Met gala. “We want them to feel that the amazing effort they put into getting dressed was worth it, and it was an evening they’re maybe not going to experience elsewhere.” 

She added, “I honestly believe the people are excited [about the Met gala] as it’s an extraordinary marriage of fashion and culture. We don’t want [the Met] to become a mausoleum. We want it to be alive and vibrant and bring in new audiences and have people excited about being there.”
