And while we’re pumped to hear Stephen Colbert‘s opening monologue and find out whether stars like Millie Bobby Brown and Reese Witherspoon will take home a coveted Emmy statuette, let’s be real—what we’re really in for is the fashion.

How Kourtney Kardashian Uses Green Tea to Help Keep Her Diet Balanced

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

As a mom of three, Kourtney Kardashian is always thinking about the healthiest options—not just for her little ones, but for herself. But as a mere human, the 38-year-old reality star knows how hard it is sometimes to fight cravings, which is why she’s picked up a smart trick over the years to resist less-healthy foods and stay on track with a balanced diet.

In a new post on her website, Kourtney revealed that bread baskets at restaurants are one of her biggest vices. And though bread isn’t bad (hello, we love it) devouring a whole basket’s worth before digging into an entrée that likely contains important nutrients like protein and fiber may not what be everyone’s body always wants or needs.

So, Kourtney said her first order of business when eating out is to a cup of green tea with almond milk and honey. Of course, the tea isn’t to replace her food; it’s simply to keep her hands and taste buds occupied with a healthy option until her real meal arrives. And while the fact that green tea is good for you certainly isn’t groundbreaking—it’s well-established and research-backed that the drink contains tons of antioxidants, nutrients, and can benefit your body in major ways—we like the idea of sipping on something sweet, satisfying, and good for you while waiting for an entrée.

The post, titled “How I Eat Healthy Wherever I Go,” also delved into Kourtney’s other health tips, including the fact that she’s not afraid to ask point-blank where her food is coming from. “I talk to the restaurants in my neighborhood and find out where they source their food. I’ll ask if their meat is grass-fed, whether or not their produce is organic or local, things like that,” she wrote. “Being informed helps me choose the best local restaurants to go to with my family.”

As for times when there aren’t many healthy options around, like the airport, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star makes sure to pack a bag of Kourtney-approved snacks for her kids to munch on. “Bringing your own snacks—especially for the kids—is a great way to have healthy options that everyone likes,” she wrote. “Also, if we’re gone for a big trip, I’ll pack a bag full of gluten-free snacks to bring with us, so we have our pantry staples wherever we go.”

Though Kourtney’s diet might seem strict to some, it’s important to note that she’s simply sharing a system that works for her, and everyone’s body is different. What works for Kourtney may not work for you. If restaurant bread baskets are one of your great joys in life (raises hand) then we certainly don’t advocate depriving yourself.

Exactly How to Pull Off Rounded Winged Eyeliner

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

Fashion Week has always set the tone for the next big beauty trends. It brought us bold lips (a look we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon), Renaissance-inspired braids, monochromatic makeup, and no-makeup-makeup that still makes us rejoice on the inside.

But if we’re honest, the trends we love most are the styles we can actually try at home without help from a friend or pro. So when models at this week’s Tom Ford and Jason Wu shows sported rounded winged eyeliner, naturally, we were thrilled. Just when we thought eyeliner couldn’t get any better, makeup artists rounded the look for an effect that’s both sexy and casual—and not that hard to do.

MORE: The 10 Best Black Eyeliners That Won’t Smudge

To create the look yourself, messy is the key word to remember. You’ll want to throw precision out the window, grab your favorite creamy shadow and create a circle with a small brush or even your pinky.

Although you don’t have to be too perfectionistic, you’ll want to take proper care in making sure the liner is even on both eyes, so keep your Q-tips handy to clean up the edges. Since eyes are your face’s focal point (second to brows of course), you want to aim for a generally symmetrical look.

Best of all, rounded winged eyeliner doesn’t require careful application on your inner waterline (goodbye tight-lining!) and the more smudged it is, the better. So take a look at our favorite rounded looks from Fashion Week and try them at home, keeping in mind the end result should be gorgeously diffused and soft-focus.

Khloe Kardashian Got Fewer Deals Than Sisters Because She Was ‘Heavier’

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

The Kardashian-Jenners are some of the most sought-after influencers for lucrative and high-profile Instagram sponsorships. But for a time, Khloe Kardashian was left out of that pack. In a new essay for Glamour, the 33-year-old reality star opens up about her body insecurities and how she got significantly fewer endorsement deals than her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, because she was “heavier.”

In the essay, which looks back at Khloe’s 10-year journey on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the youngest Kardashian sister admits that she didn’t see the impact of reality TV fame until the “fourth or fifth season.” This is largely because she was often passed over for sponsorships and endorsement deals because she didn’t have the same body as her sisters. “The truth is that I was heavier then too, so not a lot of endorsements were coming my way,” Khloe writes. “Brands would prefer to align themselves with Kim or Kourtney, which I was totally fine with because I was still along for the ride. But it’s also a very sad thing to realize that most brands are interested only in pretty, cute, in-shape girls.”

The experience led Khloe to partner with less glamorous brands, like tampon companies, so that she could fit in. She admitted that the experience eventually drained her self-worth—something she didn’t fully realize until recently, when she became more comfortable in her skin.

“There were things I did back then that made me think, ‘Why am I doing this?’ I once did a deal with a tampon company, and I was like, ‘Why am I so thirsty?’ But I was young, and you feel pressure; you see your sisters getting deals and you’re like, ‘Should I be doing something? Is a pad commercial all I can get? Well, OK then.’ The older you get, and the more comfortable you become in your skin, the more you begin to think about what makes sense for you. ”

However, judging from Khloe’s story, it seems like the unrealistic body standards for women in the world of Instagram sponsorships hasn’t changed. Khloe admits that it wasn’t until she began exercising more and changing her body that endorsement deals started ramping up. “When I started getting in shape and when I first got married, a different amount of attention came my way,” she wrote. “Because I had already seen my sisters go through it, I was able to be pickier about my opportunities.”

Sigh. While it’s not exactly news that major brands don’t always prioritize diverse beauty standards in their ads, we hope that Khloe speaking up about the experience will help raise awareness—for both brands and consumers—that the norms they so often perpetuate can be seriously destructive to women, even one as seemingly confident and empowered as Khloe Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian Accused of Wearing Blackface to Match North West’s Skin Tone

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Update: Aug. 29, 2017 at 5:05 p.m. EST

Kim Kardashian is being accused of wearing blackface in her Jackie Kennedy-themed Interview magazine photoshoot with her 4-year-old daughter, North West. The 36-year-old reality star, who also came under fire for equating herself to the late First Lady, is now being criticized for what some perceive as darkening her skin to match her daughter’s. West, who’s the daughter of Kanye West, is half-black.

Given that the interview discussed the KKW Beauty mogul’s reality raising a biracial daughter, many critics saw Kardashian’s supposed darkened skin tone as hypocritical. Other critics slammed the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star for allegedly attempting to make the mother-and-daughter photoshoot more aesthetically pleasing by matching her skin tone to her half-black daughter.

As of publication, Kardashian nor Interview has responded to the blackface allegations.

Original story: Aug. 28, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. EST

A new Kim Kardashian photo shoot is stirring up controversy—and this time, it’s not for her usual nude antics. Instead, the 36-year-old reality star is fully dressed and posing with her 4-year-old daughter, North West. The concept is as non-controversial as can be—aside from the fact that Kim is dressed head-to-toe as Jackie Kennedy.

The photoshoot, which was for Interview magazine’s September issue, features Kim dressed in several Jackie O-like outfits, such as a fitted wool Chanel dress with gloves and a brunette bouffant, an ankle-length black dress with pearls, and tons of other tweed and wool skirt-suits fit for a First Lady.

Interview even deemed the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star as the country’s most powerful woman with the headline “America’s New First Lady,” which accompanied a piece written by Janet Mock.

https://twitter.com/KimKardashian/status/902190972108292096

Though celebrities have been dressing up as John F. Kennedy‘s wife for years off-screen and on, Interview‘s declaration that Kim is America’s new First Lady and that she possesses as much stature as Jackie O seems a little odd—even if her husband Kanye West half-joked that he was going to run for President in 2020.

And while it’s undeniable that Kim has built an empire for herself and arguably her five siblings and numerous other Kardashian-adjacent celebrities, putting her in Jackie Kennedy’s shoes just seems like an invitation to get roasted. If you need further evidence, take a look at these tweets, calling the photoshoot all kinds of cringe-worthy.

Of course, like the PR queen she is, Kim’s Jackie O stunt might just have been coincidentally timed to overshadow the shade Taylor Swift threw at her with her new music video last night. If this is true, maybe Kim does deserve the label of First Lady for her epic abilities to manipulate optics.

Kourtney Kardashian’s Skin Care Secret Is an Actual Potted Plant

Saturday, August 26th, 2017

Over the years, the Kardashians have provided us with plenty of unconventional beauty tips. Last month, we learned that Kim Kardashian‘s secret to getting an even tan is by spray-tanning her scalp. Now, her sister, Kourtney, is sharing her own strange-yet-makes-total-sense beauty advice to keeping her skin looking fresh 24/7.

The 38-year-old reality star recently opened up about her skin care routine on her website, where she revealed that her all-natural secret to healthy and clear skin is—wait for it—aloe vera. Of course, aloe vera isn’t exactly a groundbreaking skin care discovery. But hear us out: Kourtney doesn’t use just any old bottled aloe vera gel—she freaking harvests the gel from the plant itself.

“If the kids or I get a sunburn, I always use fresh aloe vera applied directly to the skin,” Kourtney wrote. “I keep aloe vera plants in my house, too. You can just break off a leaf and squeeze it to get a small amount of gel.” Kardashian went on to explain why fresh aloe vera is better than the pre-packaged stuff.

“Used topically, aloe gel taken straight from the plant is a cure-all for many skin conditions, including dry skin, burns (including sunburn,) and irritation like eczema,” Kourtney writes. “It’s rich in vitamin C, E, and beta carotene, which nourishes, repairs, and cools the skin without leaving a greasy residue.”

A quick refresh: Aloe vera are tropical plants, usually used as houseplants, with long thick leaves filled with gel that has cooling, anti-inflammatory properties—hence why it’s often used to treat sunburns. While picking up an aloe vera-infused beauty product could cost you a pretty penny, a plant is only $ 8 on Amazon—and doubles as a lush home accent.

Paris Jackson Poses Topless In Bed on Instagram—With Her Dog

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

As someone who isn’t afraid to bare the truth, it makes sense that Paris Jackson has no qualms about baring everything else—well, nearly. The 19-year-old model posted an Instagram on Saturday, posing topless in bed with a special someone. And no, that special someone isn’t Trevor Donovan, the 38-year-old actor who’s been romantically linked to Jackson. (Side note: They’re “just friends,” according to their reps.)

Instead, Jackson was cuddling with her crossbreed puppy, Koa. In the selfie, Paris is lounging topless while Koa rests on her chest, hiding any trace of nipple from the Instagram police.

The Best Exercise to Get a Butt Like the Kardashians

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Ever since they popped onto our TV screens in 2007, the world has been fixated on the Kardashian sisters. And, thanks to Instagram, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé Kardashian have pretty much singlehandedly brought the belfie into being, inspiring legions of women to hit the gym in hopes of establishing a similarly augmented booty. And though the sisters often clap back at rumors in regard to whether their derrières are fake or real—really, it’s none of our business—one thing is for sure: The Kardashian sisters definitely spend hours at the gym. (One look at their Instagram stories and you’ll be tired just watching how many squats they do on a regular basis.)

Which brings us to the good news: If you’re looking to look like a Kardashian, uh, coming and going, their longtime trainer Gunnar Peterson recently revealed the best exercise to try to Insider. Peterson, who has also worked with younger sister Kendall Jenner, swears by none other than the age-old, tried-and-true method: good old squats.

But not just any squats. Gunnar recommends squats with bodybuilder-worthy weights. “You have to lift weights,” he said. “You have to overload the body in order for it to adapt to the stimulation. You can do body-weight squats all day long, but you’d be far better served to load up with some dumbbells, or a barbell, or a kettlebell, and then add some strong plyometric work to that.”

For the uninitiated, plyometric workouts generally incorporate bursts of short, quick movements, like rounds of bicep dips or jumping jacks. Squats and lunges are vital, Gunnar told the publication—and switching up your movements can be key.

“You want to lunge to the side, you want to lunge twisting,” he said. “Those are all real-life movements that should be embraced at the gym, and I would do those all with weights.”

There you have it, folks. Now, if we could only speak with their accountants about how to get our bank accounts like them, that would be ideal.

Lily-Rose Depp Ditches Blonde for Ombre Red Hair

Monday, August 14th, 2017

We don’t know what it is, but there’s just something about celebrity offspring that makes us obsessed with them and their hair changes. (See our infatuation with Kaia Gerber‘s and Hailey Baldwin‘s new lobs.) So when we caught wind that Lily-Rose Depp (a.k.a. the 18-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp) swapped dirty blonde hair for blood-red locks, we knew we had to investigate.

On Saturday, the teenager shared an Instagram of herself sporting stick-straight ombre red hair, with black roots fading into a lighter red. “Don’t try me👼🏼,” she captioned the photo.

But before you get too excited that Depp is a redhead, we have to break the bad news. Judging from the mannequin heads in the background and the obvious hair net, Depp’s red hair was clearly a wig. (On the bright side, at least we know she can rock it as a ginger.)
