Welcome to a new Billie Eilish era! The ‘Bad Guy’ singer has ditched her usual baggy clothing for a pin up-style look on the latest cover of British Vogue.

It’s the summer of Billie Eilish! The Grammy-winner is entering a new era: she’s dyed her hair blonde, there’s new music on the way, and now, she has a whole new look. Billie posed for the latest cover of British Vogue, and stunned in a ’40s-inspired ensemble, styled by Dena Neustadter Giannini. On the cover, she wore a custom corset and skirt by Gucci, with a bra and panties by Agent Provocateur. Her newly blonde tresses were styled in tight curls, reminiscent of the post-World War ll era look. She also wore elbow-length latex gloves, and offered the camera a subtle smile.

She totally channeled old Hollywood stars like Lauren Bacall and Rita Hayworth throughout the shoot, as she rocked everything from lingerie to trench coats in the photos taken by Craig McDean. One snap showed the “Bad Guy” singer wearing an all beige outfit, featuring a custom Burberry corset and trench coat, along with thigh-high boots by one of Kim Kardashian‘s go-to brands, Mugler.

Billie, who is not only positioning herself as one of the defining voices of her generation, but also a fashion icon, stunned in a another custom Mugler look and a custom Alexander McQueen dress for the photoshoot. In the outlet’s cover story, the 19-year-old opened up about others people’s perception of her, and how teenage girls are upheld as mature moral arbiters. “It’s an insane thing. Young women, we’re expected to know and do everything, and be everyone’s mom when we’re like, 15,” she said.

“I used to not understand why age mattered. And, of course, you feel like that when you’re young, because you’re the oldest you’ve ever been. You feel like you’re so mature and you know everything.People forget that you can grow up and realize shit was f**ked up when you were younger.” She later added, “It doesn’t matter who you are, what your life is, your situation, who you surround yourself with, how strong you are, how smart you are. You can always be taken advantage of.”

Alex met her now husband when they were both in their freshman year at Texas A&M University. The pair dated for a few years, and graduated together in 2019. On Alex’s big day, her mom Ree shared a photo of herself and Ladd, making a slightly TMI joke. “Our honeymoon baby is getting married tonight. (TMI?),” she captioned the pic, which showed her husband wearing a neck brace. Meanwhile, the bridge stunned in a strapless white gown, and was seen dancing with her husband in what appeared to be a massive tent, with gorgeous floral detailing hung from the ceiling.

The wedding was catered by Ree’s restaurant, the Mercantile, and featured main courses like beef-tenderloin filet, charred vegetables, peppers and asparagus, and mashed potatoes. Another mouth watering dish on offer was the macaroni and cheese with caramelized onions and seven different cheeses. Guests also enjoyed two different wedding cakes: a traditional half vanilla half strawberry cake with multiple layers, and a chocolate cake, shaped and decorated like a football jersey. It was dedicated to both Texas A&M, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mauricio’s favorite team.

She also shared the news on her Instagram page, posting a series of pics taken while Mauricio got down on one knee. “Still waiting for someone to pinch me??!?! Mauricio Scott is the sweetest picture of God’s goodness and provision. And I get to spend FOREVER with him!! I love you, fiancé!!!!!!!” Alex captioned her post. Congratulations to the happy couple!

‘Below Deck Med’s Bugsy Drake is known for her gorgeous tablescapes and she’s revealing why ‘RHOBH’s Dorit Kemsley is her dream housewife dinner guest ahead of her book release!

Below Deck Mediteranean’s Chief Stew, Bugsy Drake, 30, has created some gorgeous, over the top table settings for her charter guests over the years — but there’s one Real Housewives’ dinner table she’s dying to get her hands on. “For Housewives, obviously Beverly Hills because everyone knows that it’s my favorite,” Bugsy told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on April 26 as she discussed her new book The Art of Tablescaping: Deck Out Your Table with the Queen of Theme out on May 4. “I love Garcelle [Beauvais], but Dorit [Kemsley] is my spirit animal. Everyone knows I love hair clips just like Dorit and the glitz and glamor of it all, so I’d love to do an over the top glitzy, glamorous table for Dorit and her family.”

Fans first met Bugsy when she served as a 2nd Stewardess under the guidance of Captain Sandy Yawn, 56, and Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier, 34, during seasons 2 and 5. Bugsy was promoted to Chief Stewardess after Hannah’s mid-season dismissal when Bosun Malia White, 30, reported her to Sandy for having a vape pen and a unregistered Valium pills.

Sandy and Bugsy have such a tight bond that she wrote the forward for Bugsy’s book. “Yachts are not built to hold piles and piles of decorations, but Bugsy’s creativity eliminates that need,” Sandy said. “From simple lunches to last-minute dinner parties, Bugsy exceeds my expectations.”

Dorit, who’s tagline during season 8 was “I believe in excess of everything, except moderation,” seems ready for Bugsy who already knows what kind of table she’d do for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. “Obviously diamonds, so glass diamonds would be out there,” Bugsy said. “A lot of glitter and lots of candles. I think she loves the over the top sort of sparkle of it all. My favorite table scape is always Gatsby, so I can kind of see Dorit going with Gatsby as well.”

And while the word on the street for season 6 has been very hush hush, Bugsy is giving fans a nice tease for her return to the show. “All I can say is I absolutely love Below Deck,” the now author said. “And I love being on Below Deck Med, so everyone’s going to have to wait and see! This [book] literally was a passion project for my fans and everyone out there that wanted a taste of tablescaping, really.”

Caitlyn Jenner confirmed that she’s “clear” where she “stands” on the issue of trans girls competing in female sports, and Twitter accuses her of doing ‘harm.’

Caitlyn Jenner, 71, says “biological boys” who are trans competing on “girls’ sports” teams isn’t “fair.” The reality star, who was born Bruce Jenner before transitioning in 2015, made the comments while grabbing a Starbucks coffee on Saturday, May 1. “This is a question of fairness. That’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school,” she explained to TMZ‘s cameras on Saturday, May 1. “It just isn’t fair. And we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools,” she added, putting her dog in the car. Caitlyn is a renowned athlete herself, winning a gold medal at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada in decathlon.

Caitlyn, who is seeking to become governor of California as a Republican against current democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in a recall election, was then asked if this “delegitimizes” the “identity” of trans children. Caitlyn declined to answer the question, quipping “have a good day” as she got into her SUV. Later that day, she backed up her earlier statement with a tweet. “I didn’t expect to get asked this on my Saturday morning coffee run, but I’m clear about where I stand. It’s an issue of fairness and we need to protect girls’ sports in our schools,” the father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner wrote.

Twitter reacted to Caitlyn Jenner’s comments on Saturday, May 1. (Twitter)

Twitter immediately reacted to Caitlyn’s comments. “@Caitlyn_Jenner You are such a traitor…So we need to ‘protect girls sports’ from other girls now? And fairness? Don’t you know how testosterone blockers work?” one person wrote. “Girls belong in girls sports. Trans girls are girls. There is NO evidence of trans girls outperforming their cis peers. There is only evidence of them being harassed and harmed by their peers. Drop this, develop your hobbies and spend your time NOT doing harm to trans people,” another posted.

Twitter disagrees with comments made by Caitlyn Jenner. (Twitter)

In response Caitlyn’s stance, both GLAAD and National Center for Transgender Equality Action Fund have issued statements to HollywoodLife. “Caitlyn Jenner’s views do not represent the transgender and gender nonconforming community,” GLAAD spokesperson Serena Sonoma tells HL EXCLUSIVELY. “Every major medical association, as well as hundreds of athletes at all levels, support letting trans kids play and are opposed to these harmful bills. Recent polling shows the majority of Americans also oppose anti-transgender laws, across party lines. It’s unfortunate and baffling that anyone would target the most vulnerable among us to court voters, rather than focus on real threats like COVID, lack of access to healthcare, education and discrimination. Jenner’s support of anti-trans laws only serve to aid lawmakers attacking transgender people and youth,” they also said.

The National Center for Transgender Equality Action Fund echoed the same sentiment, calling Caitlyn’s opinion “wrong” about the “danger” of these bans. “Transgender people aren’t a monolith, and like every community there are members with different opinions. Jenner is wrong about the danger and harmfulness of these anti-transgender bans,” Deputy Executive Director Rodrigo Heng-Lehtinen said to HollywoodLife. “We all care about fairness, and that’s why athletic conferences, school districts and states have policies in place to make sure that kids are treated fairly,” they added, noting it is “important” for transgender people to run for public office and “break down barriers.”

“It’s reassuring to know that the NCAA has looked into this and determined that transgender people can safely play sports. They are experts on athletics, and they support transgender student-athletes. It can be helpful to remember that these bans aren’t about elite athletes,” the NCTE Action Fund also said. “They are about the ninth grader who wants to play on the JV volleyball team. They’re about the teenager who wants to play on the same team as their friends after school. Bans like this single them out for harassment. Adults are at our best when helping youth to learn and thrive, not putting a target on their backs.”

Caitlyn filed paperwork to run for governor of California on April 23, launching a gubernatorial campaign. “California has been my home for nearly 50 years,” her mission statement, shared to social media, read. The announcement came after she said she would never run.

“I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality. But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision,” she explained.

Michael Lohan has spoken to HollywoodLife in the wake of his arrest for patient brokering, and a proposed bill dubbed the ‘Protect Against Lindsay Lohan’s Dad Act’.

Days after Michael Lohan was arrested as part of a “patient brokering” scheme in south Florida, the 60-year-old father of actress turned resort owner Lindsay Lohan was dragged into a political discussion in Illinois. New legislation has been passed in the Senate, which will tighten the legal screws on so-called “patient brokers” who target those struggling with opioid addiction by marketing certain treatment services in exchange for kickbacks. The measure was dubbed “Protect Against Lindsay Lohan’s Dad Act” and was sponsored by State Senator Sara Feigenholtz of Chicago.

Michael has since spoken to HollywoodLife about the proposed bill, after being arrested on five counts of patient brokering and one count of attempted patient brokering on April 23. “I’ve been working in this treatment industry for over 14 years and helped hundreds of people get the help they need,” he began. “Of the dozens of treatment centers, detoxes and interventions I’ve worked with the owners and patients will attest I’ve helped and referred hundreds of people and I never asked for or received a penny. To me. It’s always been about the person and their family not the money.”

Michael said it was “ludicrous” that his daughter’s name was dragged into the conversation surrounding the bill. “To be targeted by a couple of horrible people to lessen their sentences is bad enough, but now for the Illinois Association for Behavioral Health to target me and associate my innocent daughter’s name on a bill,  when I have not been convicted isn’t only prejudicing my case, but defamatory.” He concluded, “I hope and pray my family can get past this, and my attorneys can put a stop to it.” HollywoodLife has also reached out to Lindsay’s rep for comment.

Lindsay’s dad was one of more than 100 people arrested as part of the Palm Beach County probe. Police documents claim that he received checks worth over $25,000 in exchange for his alleged efforts to steer addicts into certain rehab facilities. “Mr. Lohan was investigated by our Sober Homes Task Force and he’s being charged with receiving kickbacks for referring patients to drug treatment. Patient brokering corrupts our health care system because decisions are motivated by greed instead of a patient’s needs. This is our Task Force’s 117th arrest and will not be our last,” Florida State Attorney Dave Aronberg said of Lohan’s arrest.

Kensington Palace commemorated sweet Princess Charlotte’s 6th birthday with beautiful portraits of the young royal! See the little princess on her very special day. 

Another year older! Princess Charlotte officially turned six years old on May 2, and the Royal Family celebrated the occasion with portraits of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s second child and only daughter — see the pic here. The candid photo was taken by her mom over the weekend in Norfolk, as she posed amongst the greenery. Little Charlotte flashed a huge smile at the camera, while wearing a blue, pink and green floral dress with her light brown hair parted to the side.

Every year that fans of the Royal Family get the opportunity to see just how much the little royals have grown it is truly a treat! Last year, when Princess Charlotte turned five years old, Kensington Palace released another series of lovely portraits. Of course, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the family made the decision to add a personal touch to Princess Charlotte’s portraits for her fifth birthday.

The photos were actually captured by Charlotte’s adoring mom, Kate! “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share four new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fifth birthday tomorrow,” read the caption to the photos, which were shared on social media on May 1, 2020. “The images were taken by The Duchess as the family helped to pack up and deliver food packages for isolated pensioners in the local area.”

Princess Charlotte’s first day at school at Thomas’s Battersea, in London, on September 5, 2019 [Shutterstock].Service is such a big part of the Royal Family’s life, and although this past year has looked quite different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Princess Charlotte and her brothers, Prince George, 7, and Prince Louis, 3, along with their parents, have still found ways to give back to their community and the world at large. Back in October, Charlotte and her siblings chatted with Sir David Attenborough before the release of his documentary David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet.

In the video, Charlotte sweetly revealed that she loves spiders! The youngster looked super sweet asking the beloved conservationist some questions. While this year will undoubtedly look different as Charlotte and her family celebrate her birthday, they will surely make it an occasion to remember forever. We cannot wait to see what’s in store for Princess Charlotte this year!

Dannielynn Birkhead ditched her usual dress for the Kentucky Derby this year, choosing a grown up suit and white floral fascinator for the event.

Anna Nicole Smith‘s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, is so grown up! The 14-year-old posed with her dad Larry Birkhead, 48, have an annual father-daughter tradition of attending the Kentucky Derby — but this year looked a little different due to COVID-19.  A day before the 2021 Derby, Larry and Dannielynn got all dressed up to head to the Churchill Downs race track.

The teenager looked so glam in a turquoise suit by Jovani, channeling the ’80s with big bold buttons. She added a rhinestone face mask to the look and a red lip. “Even though our favorite event The Barnstable-Brown Party won’t be back until next year, we decided to head out on this beautiful day to Churchill Downs racetrack in preparation for The Kentucky Derby,” Larry wrote.

Dannielynn finished first in her @jovanifashions pant suit and a beautiful white flowered fascinator. She said she wanted to wear something entirely different than she had in the past. I guess that means no more ‘little girl’ dresses??” he quipped. “She cleaned out the chocolate brownies, ice cream and nachos while at the same time critiquing my outfit, the dad joked.

Back in 2019, the then 12-year-old looked so cute as she posed with dad Larry in a gorgeous pink dress by Junona! Dannielynn is the spitting image of her iconic mom, which many noted on social media. “Kentucky Derby time once again. Dannielynn looks pretty in pink in her dress by Junona and her Mom’s hat from her unforgettable appearance at The Kentucky Derby in 2004 #KentuckyDerby2019,” Larry tweeted, noting that the hat was the late Anna Nicole’s. How sweet!

As part of the event, the duo attended the 2019 Kentucky Derby Eve Gala which is held at Patricia Barnstable Brown‘s Louisville home. Dannielynn switched up her dress for the annual affair, opting to wear a bright yellow dress with pink floral details for the event — also by Junona. Dannielynn and Larry have attended the Kentucky Derby annually since 2010, which is the only public appearance they make annually. The event has particular significance as it’s also where Larry met Anna Nicole Smith years ago.

Larry, who has worked as an actor, model and photographer, has previously dubbed Dannielynn her mother’s “legacy.” Their likeness is undoubtedly uncanny, particularly their bright, wide smiles. The 14-year-old was just 5-months-old when Anna Nicole — who was known as a Guess? model and reality star — died of an accidental drug overdose on February 8, 2007.

The single dad has made an effort to keep his teenage daughter out of the spotlight, quietly raising her in his home state of Kentucky. “I think here in Kentucky is as normal as you can get,” Larry explained in a 2017 interview with Inside Edition. “She loves school. She loves her friends. I just hope that she dreams big and accomplishes a lot,” he also said. Shortly after, he also noted that he had turned down opportunities for Dannielynn to model because she “doesn’t show any interest in it” and she “wants to be a kid” to 20/20.

Larry made a rare appearance on an ABC special called Tragic Beauty that debuted nearly 14 years after Anna’s death. In the 20/20 episode, the father-daughter duo went through the late model’s old possessions that have been kept in storage. “She wanted to be a star; she wanted to be a mother; and Dannielynn is her legacy,” Larry’s voiceover said at one point during the broadcast.

Cher took to Twitter to praise Olympia Dukakis, who played her mother in the popular 1987 film ‘Moonstruck’, after her death and revealed she talked to her ‘3 weeks ago.’

Cher, 74, posted a touching tribute to her former co-star Olympia Dukakis, who passed away at the age of 89 on May 1, in a post full of pictures on Twitter. The singer, who worked with the late actress in the 1987 comedy Moonstruck, called her “amazing” and mentioned her late husband Louis Zorich in the sweet tweet. The snapshots she attached showed the doting couple posing and smiling together.

“Olympia Dukakis Was an Amazing, Academy Award Winning Actress. Olympia Played My Mom In Moonstruck, & Even Though Her Part was That Of a Suffering Wife, We,” she wrote before adding a laughing emoji. “ALL The Time. She Would Tell Me How MUCH She Loved Louis, Her ‘Handsome Talented, Husband’. I Talked To Her 3Wks Ago. Rip Dear One.”

— Cher (@cher) May 1, 2021

Cher followed up her first tweet with more, including one about Olympia’s ill health and some of the last things she said to her. “Wrote This Hrs Ago, But Didn’t hit Twt😔. Heard Olympia Was Sick So Called Her Daughter & Said Could I Talk 2 Her,” the tweet read. “She Said ‘She might Not HEAR or SPEAK’. I Called In2 The Receiver’ Olympia It’s Cher, I ❤️You.’ Remember Moonstruck, She Said ‘oh cher,I❣️you.’ She Was Weak But Happy. RIP O.”

A third tweet featured quotes from one of the famous scenes between her character, Loretta, and Olympia’s character, Rose, in Moonstruck. “You never think about Friends, Loved Ones Leaving, But Thank God We Can See Them,” she wrote. “Rose ‘DO YOU LOVE HIM LORETTA’ Loretta ‘NO’ Rose ‘GOOD. CAUSE WHEN YOU LOVE THEM THEY DRIVE YOU CRAZY, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY CAN’.”

Cher’s loving messages come just minutes after Olympia’s death made headlines. She died on Saturday morning in New York City, according to her brother Apollo Dukakis, 85, who confirmed her death on Facebook. “My beloved sister, Olympia Dukakis, passed away this morning in New York City,” he wrote in his post. “After many months of failing health she is finally at peace and with her Louis.”
Olympia’s death hits hard for the entertainment world. She’s left an impressive legacy, though, that includes an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role as Rose in Moonstruck. She leaves behind three children

Kaitlyn Bristowe admitted she and Jason Tartick have talked about getting engaged and revealed they’re at ‘such a good place’ in their relationship, in our EXCLUSIVE interview.

Kaitlyn Bristowe, 35, is not sure if her boyfriend Jason Tartick, 32, is going to propose soon, but it turns out they have talked about one step he’ll take if he does. The Bachelorette star called her hunky beau “very traditional” and admitted the “next step” in their relationship will be “getting engaged”, when talking to HollywoodLife about her new wellness program, The Raw Beauty Reset with Erin Treloar and Kaitlyn Bristowe, which you can find here.

“Jason’s very traditional. I’m not, so I think through this pandemic — We’ve talked so openly that the next step for us is getting engaged and Jason very much wants to get engaged, get married and then start a family and I’m like, ‘Good thing my eggs are frozen,” because girlfriend is 36 next month,” she EXCLUSIVELY told us during an interview on TVTalk on Apr. 30.

“I don’t know and I hope I don’t know because I want to be completely surprised, but with Jason being traditional he was like, ‘I want to talk to your dad,’ and my dad’s in Canada and now I’m having to try to get creative with how to really talk to your parents and get that permission and so I don’t know,” she continued. “I don’t want to know when it’s happening. I’m not the kind of person to put pressure on it because I would not want somebody to propose to me out of pressure.”

“We just are in such a good place in our relationship that it could be any day,” she added. “I’m not sure.”

Kaitlyn and Jason’s engagement plans come after they first met in Oct. 2018 shortly after her split from Shawn Booth. They started out as friends before they took it to the next level with a romance at the beginning of 2019. Since then, they’ve proudly showed off their love with casual outings and appearances at events. One of their most memorable appearances was when they dressed up like former couple Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt for Halloween in 2020.
