Jennifer Lawrence is starring in the new movie Joy, slated to be in theaters on Christmas Day this year , and the first official poster was just released.

25-year-old actress Jennifer Lawrence stars alongside Bradley Cooper for the fourth time in the upcoming movie and we can’t wait to see their on-screen chemistry shine again!

Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.

Also starring in the film are Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Joy hits theaters on December 25! Check out the trailer below!

Zendaya Debuts Her New ‘Sole of Daya’ Shoe Collection in Las Vegas

Zendaya Coleman

Disney starlet and all around fashionista Zendaya Coleman is definitely making her mark on the world in more ways than one. The soon-to-be nineteen year old can now add shoe designer to her growing resume. Zendaya has officially launched her brand new shoe line, Sole of Daya, at FN Platform during MAGIC Week held at the Las Vegas Convention Center yesterday. And the “K.C. Undercover” star did so in casually cute ensemble.

Zendaya showed off her collection in a crisp white button up shirt styled with blue distressed denim jeans and a cute pair of her own Sole of Daya sandals. The name of her line was inspired by her family nickname, Daya.

The affordable footwear collection includes high-heeled pumps and sandals, caged flat sandals, boots, high-top sneakers and workout trainers, which come in a wide assortment of colors.

During promo rounds last week, the Disney starlet chopped it up with ‘Footwear News’ about her vision behind her collection. She said, “I wanted shoes that were going to speak for themselves. If [consumers] didn’t know who the heck I was, which a lot of people don’t, they are still going to like the shoes. I don’t want people buying because they’re Zendaya shoes, they are for everyone.”

Spoiler Alert: You can fawn over these cute kicks all you want but you won’t actually be able to get your hands on a pair until they’re launched to the masses in Spring 2016. But the good side of this is you won’t have to break the bank purchasing a pair either – all of the Sole of Daya shoes are priced under $225.


Sole of Daya Congratulations Zendaya!

Attention! Military Style for Fall

For most people, the 1970’s evoke memories of Shaft, bell-bottoms and stacked heels. However, it was also a time of cultural and social revolution. As fashion tends to-do, it imitates life and reflects the times. The revolutionary spirit of the 70’s has been re-interpreted for 2015 into modern military styles. So think epaulettes, brass buttons, double-breasted jackets, trench coats and combat boots. Of course, no military style is complete without army green, camo prints and navy blue.

So how do you create the look? It doesn’t take much all you need are a few military inspired items. For instance, simply adding combat boots with a casual dress or a double-breasted blazer over a tank and some skinny jeans can do the trick.

Check out the outfit below for more inspiration.

1. Camel Double Breasted Sleeveless Jacket – New Look – $55

2.  Chiffon Blouse – H&M – $39

3.  Abercrombie & Fitch Military Pants –  A&F- $39

4.  Timberland Earthkeeper’s Lace-Up Boot– Zappos – $130

Sofia Vergara to Star in “The Simpsons”

Sofia VThe Simpsons

43-year-old actress Sofia Vergara is set to voice the character of Mrs. Berrera, a new teacher at Springfield Elementary School who Bart Simpson develops a crush on, in the new season of the animated show.

E! News has confirmed Sofia’s casting for the episode ‘Teenage Mutant Milk-Caused Hurdles’ which will see Bart drink a milk substitute that contains some irregular hormones that trigger early puberty and see the 10-year-old boy grow a mustache and more adult feelings and once Mrs. Berrera pays him some attention he falls in love with her.

Mrs. Berrera will also attract attention from Principle Skinner – after he learns she is also a fellow war veteran – and the storyline will see the hapless headteacher and his nemesis Bart fight for her affections.

In the episode Skinner will once again be voiced by Harry Shearer, who is returning to the program after leaving earlier this year over a contract dispute. Sofia Vergara is currently only due to appear in one episode of the series about the dysfunctional family but producers are reportedly interested in making her a recurring character. The Colombian beauty shoots ‘Modern Family’ in the same studios where ‘The Simpsons’ is created so it would not be logistically difficult for her to appear in both shows.

The next season of ‘The Simpsons’ will premiere on Sunday, September 27 on Fox. Will you be tuning in?

Hair to Dye For: Fall Hair Hues

People dye their hair all the time, but the fall season has its own set of hues. We’re transitioning from lighter and vibrant season to a more calm and cool season where even our hair can reflect it. Here are some dye jobs and hues you can expect to see this season.


In true fall fashion you can expect to see a lot of red. No, not fire red, but a more subtle shade of red. Burgundy or brick reds are popular during this time; the deeper and darker shades of red really stand out.




What’s fall without the appearance of orange? Of course neon orange isn’t on anyone’s radar this fall, but a burnt orange or red-orange will definitely turn some heads.

These two colors, red and orange, are the unofficial announcers and makers of autumn’s arrival, so why not participate in on the fun?


Now before you go stocking up on fifty shades of red and orange hair dye, you should probably do a little bit of research. Consider the brand you want to use, are you getting this professionally done or if this a DIY project, and be careful when picking your color.


You’re almost selfie ready, all that’s missing is that awesome dye job!

For a promotional press run for her Disney Channel show, K.C. Undercover in which she plays the lead character Kacey Cooper, Zendaya Coleman jetsets off to the U.K.

And the Disney starlet and fashionista just might be one of the most down the Earth celebrities ever, Zendaya had a couple of free hours in her schedule as she was spotted on a tour of the capital on Sunday – with her fans leading the way, no less. Zendaya was also spotted taking a selfie with crowds of fans who were all doing the peace sign for the picture.


Taking to Twitter after the tour, she wrote to her 5.93million followers: ‘2 hour field trip/tour with my babies’, adding the hashtag #Londayas, referring to her London fanbase.

Zendaya Tweets

She also shared a picture of herself with her fans on Instagram, along with the caption: ‘My squad>>>> all other squads in history. Thanks for showing me around ur town #day2 #londayas [sic].’The actress, who recently announced a debut shoe collection, was snapped arriving at London’s Heathrow Airport on Saturday.

Her UK visit comes after it was reported that ex-One Direction singer Zayn Malik has set his sights on the Disney starlet after ending his engagement to Little Mix’s Perrie Edward. the ex-boy band heartthrob – who quit  One Direction in March in hopes of becoming ‘a normal 22-year-old‘ – is said to be particularly smitten with the 18-year-old Zendaya and is reportedly hoping to record a new track together.

Beauty’s Only Skin Deep

If you’re like me then you’ve tried just about every skin product and regimen made, but haven’t had any luck locking in just one. One friend suggested Noxzema twice a day, another Neutrogena every other day, and a third Clearasil once a week, but they’ve all resulted in the same epic failure. How do you keep running into this problem and how do you fix it? I’m not a pro, but these are tips just to get you started.

skin products

Remember no two people are just alike. That being said just because a skin product and routine works for your friend doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you too. It may take time, but with patience and more research you’ll be successful. Another reminder please be gentle with your skin. You’re trying new and different products one right after another, but when does your skin breathe? It may sound silly, but give your skin a break. By you constantly picking at your face you could be doing more harm than good.

My last reminder YouTube can’t teach you EVERYTHING! I love YouTube and it has helped me with a variety of DIY’s, but when it comes to handling your skin it’s probably best to speak to a professional. That same effort and time you’re putting into finding new YouTube vloggers could be going to finding a qualified dermatologist. Again, I’m in no way bashing YouTube and its many vloggers, but when it comes to your skin be selective.

I hope these tips helped and good luck on your quest for healthy skin!

Congratulations are in order for both of these artists!

Taylor Swift Has “No Interest” in Ending Feud with Katy Perry

Taylor Swift Katy Perry

“Bad Blood” singer Taylor Swift has insisted she has no plans to build a bridge between her and fellow singer Katy Perry because she “betrayed” her so badly.

Appearing to address the feud, she told Vanity Fair magazine: “I’ve trusted people before in friendships or relationships and have felt betrayed.“If you betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them, I have no interest in having a person like that in my life.”

Meanwhile, Taylor previously revealed a few details about how the pair’s friendship turned sour. She said: “She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’

“And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”

However, their friendship didn’t always used to be so bitter.

In 2009, Taylor tweeted: “Watching the Waking up in Vegas video. I love Katy Perry. I think I’m going to hang her poster on my wall now.”

With the 30-year-old star quickly replying to say: “@taylorswift13 You’re as sweet as pie! Let’s write a song together about the subject we know best… for my new record. It’ll be brilliant.”

Too bad that joint song never came to fruition. It would’ve been a certified hit! What do you think?
