Kendall Jenner is making some bold fashion statements both on and off the runway! In town for London Fashion Week, the supermodel headed out last night to attend a party for Love magazine wearing a surprising ensemble.
The 21-year-old spokesmodel for Estée Lauder wore an oversize white crocheted Burberry hoodie with two pom-poms over a white slip dress and black boots. While she kept her beauty routine simple with luminous skin, bold red lip and center-parted hair pulled back, she did add a surprising accessory to the mix. Paps snapped Jenner flashing two gold caps on her teeth.
Perhaps this latest style statement is a nod to her brother-in-law Kanye West, who has been known to wear gold and diamond grills and fronts on occasion.

Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa opened up about her high-profile split from her estranged husband and costar, Tarek El Moussa, during an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday, February 21. Watch a clip above!
“Honestly, despite everything, I’m doing really, really, really good,” Christina, 33, told GMA cohost Michael Strahan. “Tarek and I met 10 years ago at work and went through a market crash. We went through [Tarek’s] cancer, infertility. Now we’re going through a very public divorce, but, despite everything, our primary focus always will be our kids. We continue to work together, and there’s a lot of false stories and a lot of hype, but in the end we’re just normal, nice people who just want to be the best parents and coworkers that we can be.”
As Us Weekly previously reported, Tarek, 35, filed for divorce from Christina on January 9 after seven years of marriage. The news came a month after the reality stars revealed that they were splitting in the aftermath of a May 2016 altercation at their home in Orange County, California. The former couple have since begun seeing other people; Tarek dated one of the family’s former nannies, Alyssa Logan, 23, and then moved on to Logan’s friend, as Us exclusively reported.
On GMA, Christina said she and Tarek will continue to work together on season 7 of their HGTV series amid their divorce. “[We] filmed together three, four days a week and … we have a great crew. We have so much fun on set, and we look forward to continuing the show,” she said. “It’s our normal. We also run a seminar company together, Success Path, and every five weeks we go to Vegas together. … [We] have a great time, and we’ll always be working together.” It is unclear if the show will continue after season 7.
The real estate agents share two children, daughter Taylor, 6, and son Brayden, 18 months, whom they continue to coparent. “Our kids are amazing,” Christina said on GMA. “[Brayden] is, like, literally the happiest kid on the planet. He’s always in a good mood. And Taylor, she’s 6, and she’s awesome. She actually just won an award at school for being joyful, so it just shows our kids are transitioning well.
“Tarek and I are friends, and we have a lot of support from our family,” Christina continued. “Despite everything … the kids are doing great, really great.”
Christina also revealed that she is currently “in the very early stages” of writing a book that will chronicle the “things I’ve gone through and what’s really helped me cope.”
Surprise! Hoda Kotb has adopted a baby girl. The Today show cohost called in to the morning show to announce the news on Tuesday, February 21. Watch her emotional announcement in the video above!
“She’s a Valentine’s baby. She is the love of my life,” Kotb, 52, said of her daughter, Haley Joy. “I didn’t know my heart could feel like this. This is a moment in my life that I never thought would happen, and here it is, happening to me.”
Today’s official Instagram account also shared a photo of the proud new mom holding her newborn. “Welcome to the family, Haley Joy!” reads the caption.
“Do you know how hard it has been to keep this secret?” Kotb’s cohost, Kathie Lee Gifford,asked. “I have the biggest mouth in the world, and I’ve said zilch.”
Kotb didn’t give any more details on her new addition, but she did receive plenty of well wishes from her colleagues.
“This little girl Haley is the luckiest girl in the world,” Matt Lauer said. Gifford, 63, chimed in: “You were made to be a mom.”
This is the first child for Kotb, who was previously married to Burzis Kanga from 2005 to 2007. In October, the TV personality announced that she was moving in with her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, after three years of dating. (Kotb did not reveal if Schiffman was involved with the adoption.)
“It’s been so long since I’ve lived with someone, I’m a little concerned with me — not him. Like how I am, as a human? You know, it’s not going to be easy for poor Joel,” she said on her SiriusXM show at the time. “I was afraid to tell my own mother that I was moving in with my boyfriend. I was afraid. I don’t why! I know it sounds weird — I’ve been married, it’s like whatever. Anyway, it’s all happening. Hocus pocus. We’re shopping, we’re cohabitating.”
Getting real. Jennifer Lopez clapped back at the assumption that she only dates younger men during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, February 21. Watch the video above.
“OK, first of all, stop. I don’t date younger men,” Lopez, 47, told host Ellen DeGeneres. “It’s not like you have to be younger, it’s not about that. I just meet people and if I go out with them, I go out with them, and if I like them, I like them and if I don’t, I don’t. It’s just about the person. It’s about who they are, it has nothing to do with age.”
“I dated Beau [Casper Smart] and he was younger and that was the first guy I ever dated younger than me and then I got labeled right away,” she continued. “If they’re older, they’re older. If they’re younger, they’re younger. It doesn’t matter. It’s whether or not I’m attracted to them or not, attracted to their spirit, their soul, whatever their energy is.”
Lopez and the backup dancer, 29, who she dated on and off for four years, split for good in August 2016. Earlier this month, Us Weekly confirmed that she and Drake split after nearly two months of dating.
Lopez and the much younger rapper, 30, first sparked romance rumors when they posted a cozy photo together while working on new music. “We were just hanging out,” Lopez joked of the photo on Tuesday. DeGeneres, 59, replied: “I hang out with a lot of friends and we never hang out like that.”
Lopez and Drake collaborated on a new song together but have yet to release it. “He sent me a song that he wanted me to be on. And then I got on the song. So, yeah, we have a song together,” the “On the Floor” singer explained. “I don’t know what he’s going to do with it.”
When asked if she spent Valentine’s Day with him, Lopez replied: “No, he’s off on tour right now.”
As Us previously reported, the couple’s relationship has “died down a bit” — for now. Sources, however, reveal that Drake could perhaps pursue Lopez again when he returns to L.A. after his European tour next month.
Angelina Jolie is slowly returning to the public eye following her highly publicized split from Brad Pitt. The Maleficent actress opened up about their impending divorce during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday, February 21.
“We are focusing on the health of our family. So we will be stronger when we come out of this because that’s what we’re determined to do as a family,” Jolie, 41, said.
When asked if Pitt, 53, is still a part of the family, she replied: “Of course. Of course, we will always be a family. Always.”
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September after two years of marriage, following an incident aboard a flight. At the time, Pitt was accused of getting into an altercation with their 15-year-old son, Maddox, but the FBI found no evidence that the situation ever occurred. Pitt continues to have monitored visits with Maddox and the estranged couple’s other children — Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8 — while Jolie has physical custody.
“My whole family, we’ve all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children, and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer,” Jolie told BBCreporter Yalda Hakim on Sunday.
For now, Jolie is concentrating solely on her kids in the aftermath. “Usually, I just wake up trying to figure out who’s going to get the dog out, who’s going to start the pancakes and did anybody brush their teeth,” she added.
Jolie brought her six children to her First They Killed My Father premiere in Cambodia on Saturday. (Jolie adopted Maddox from the country in March 2002 when he was 7 months old.) They later learned how to cook spiders, crickets and scorpions in a video, which was published byBBC. (Jolie directed the film, which is based on the 2000 book by Loung Ung, a survivor of the Pol Pot regime.)
“This country means a great deal to me, this country has been through so much. This war affected every single individual here, and I wanted to understand myself,” Jolie said of her new movie to ABCon Tuesday. “I don’t know much of my [Maddox’s] birth parents, but I believe they would have gone through this war. I wanted to understand his culture in a deeper way, and bring this story to this country in their language.”
Lindsay Lohan claims that she was racially profiled while at Heathrow Airport in London. The Mean Girls alum opened up about the incident during an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, February 21.
“When I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing a headscarf, and I got stopped at the airport and was racially profiled for the first time in my life,” Lohan, 30, told cohosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid. “[The agent] opened my passport and saw Lindsay Lohan and started apologizing but said, ‘Take off your headscarf.'”
Lohan complied with the request but admitted that the exchange did freak her out. “I mean, it’s OK. But what scared me was that moment, how would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock,” she said. “It was strange. … I’m from New York, born and raised. I was a little intimidated.”
Lohan was returning from Turkey at the time, where she had met with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. She said that she wore the headscarf out of “personal respect” for the country. She posted a photo with Erdogan via Instagram on January 27. “What a dream it is for Mr. President Erdogan and The First Lady to invite me to their home,” she captioned the pic. “Their efforts in helping Syrian Refugees is truly inspiring.”
The former child star, who moved to London four years ago, also responded to rumors that she has converted to Islam. “I think that me studying the Quran is something I found solace in. You can’t just convert to a religion overnight. I just study it. Nothing is confirmed yet,” she said on Tuesday. “Religion is a personal belief. My sister’s [Ali] a Buddhist. I don’t want to speak on something I haven’t finished yet. I find a solace in studying not just the Quran but meditation. The Islamic culture, I feel it’s a family to me. They’ve been really good people to me. I want to learn the language so I can discuss situations with them [Syrian issues]. It calms me. It’s something I’m interested in.”
In November, Lohan revealed to the Daily Mail that she was learning to speak Turkish, as well as Italian and Arabic. During the interview, she introduced a bizarre, much-discussed new accent.
“It’s a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn. I’ve been learning different languages since I was a child,” she explained at the time. “I’m fluent in English and French, can understand Russian.”
She later jokingly tweeted: “@DailyMailUK what should I call my new accent? I’m thinking #LILOHAN.”
Dancing like nobody’s watching — or judging. Whitney Thore attends an aerobics class that is not exactly enjoyable on My Big Fat Fabulous Life‘s Tuesday, February 21, episode, as seen in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek.
The TLC unscripted series’ preview clip shows Thore attending rival Jiya’s dance session, where Jiya calls Thore out for not dropping to the floor during a certain routine. “Everybody gets low,” Jiya admonishes. “I don’t have to walk around with your stomach.”
A hurt Thore tells the camera, “Jiya seems to be about tearing down other people, being better than other people. I would never treat my students that way.”
However, Thore’s pals appear to feel differently about the class. Her bestie Todd tells the camera, “I can’t even help it, but, like, I’m having the time of my life. But, like, I’m not acting like that, but I’m having the time of my life. But I’m just kinda playing it down.”
After the class ends, Thore says in a testimonial, “I’m disappointed in myself. Add that onto the fact that this girl Jiya wants to take me down and do nothing but see me fail, and then it really sucks. … I’m completely humiliated, and what I really want to do is just get out of here and be done with it.”
Last week’s episode featured Thore expressing her displeasure about her ex-boyfriend Lennie inviting a date to her party. “I invited Lennie, but I didn’t think that he would actually come with a woman in tow,” Thore said.
Watch the clip above. My Big Fat Fabulous Life airs on TLC Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
For eight long months, Peta Murgatroyd let her size-seven dance shoes collect dust. Pregnant when she nabbed her second Dancing With the Stars trophy last May with model Nyle DiMarco, “I hadn’t done a step since,” the Aussie, 30, admits in the new issue of Us Weekly.
So after welcoming son Shai January 4, fiancé Maks Chmerkovskiy gave her a nudge, lining the basement of their New Jersey home with mirrors and enlisting instructors from his Dance With Me studios to serve as partners.
“I just pawned her off to them,” explains the season 18 champ, 37. “I was like, ‘I’m not going to be the guy telling her what to do after she just gave birth!’”
His bride-to-be (they’ll wed this July) made good use of the setup. Come March, the All Things Fam and Glam blogger will slip back into sequins. “Most people start using the stairs instead of the elevator at nine weeks postpartum — this one is going to be dancing full-out,” marvels Ukraine native Chmerkovskiy, who will join his fiancée on the ABC hit (premiering March 20 at 8 p.m.) Check out what they told Us in the video above. The full cast will be revealed on Good Morning America March 1.
Murgatroyd’s motivation is twofold. “I want to get my body back,” admits the 5-foot-7 pro. “And I want to defend my title. I won two seasons ago and never got to come back.” (Chmerkovskiy welcomes the challenge, telling Us, “I just want to support her, and at the same time, maybe have some healthy competition in the family.”)
And though dancing, running and weight training have helped Murgatroyd shed most of her baby weight (“I think I’m kind of halfway there,” she says), one thing does make her nervous about slipping back into her old skimpy costumes. “I’m not looking forward to having huge boobs on the show,” admits the breastfeeding star. “I’ve never had massive knockers before, and I don’t really know how we’ll tie them down! I actually contacted the costume designer and said, ‘We need to have a meeting about this!’”
For more on her and Chmerkovskiy’s return to the ballroom — and how they’re handling life as new parents — pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now!
New album out, neon lights dripping, and nose-nuzzling mustaches.
Those are some of the ingredients that fueled the fiery freight train of sound RHCP drove through Madison Sq Garden this past week. Formed in 1983, the band is pure stamina incarnate. The energy members exuded was fierce, furiously funky, and fucking fun. We’re supposed to believe most the members are in their 50’s? Shut it. Lights descended and recoiled above the crowd, creating hypnotic wave-like patterns that grooved with the music. Behind the band, giant screens projected brightly-colored, spinning cubes that dripped from their edges as they flipped and turned. It was a total trip!
RHCP has 11 studio albums to pull hits off of. E-L-E-V-E-N. So you better believe they had plenty to play for the 20,000 audience members each of the 3 nights they were in NYC. Ages around me varied from my own and slightly younger to my dad’s and slightly older. The sing-along hooks like in “Under the Bridge,” swept through everyone like electricity. Check here for tour dates and make sure to catch these modern hard-funk-rock-hop legends.
Here are some of the pics I was lucky to snag in front of the stage. Enjoy!
Coparenting superheroes! Amber Rose and her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa came together to throw their son, Sebastian, a 4th birthday party at her home in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 19.
The star-studded celebration was PJ Masks–themed and included costumed characters from the Disney Junior series in addition to a bounce house, face painting, a magic show, a DJ and a massive birthday cake. At one point, the children at the party danced to Zay Hilfigerrr and Zayion McCall‘s “Juju on That Beat,” Silentó‘s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” and Pharrell Williams‘ “Happy” as the adult guests cheered them on, according to videos on Rose’s Instagram Story.
Before it was time for dessert, Rose, 33, took the microphone and shared a sweet message to the birthday boy while standing alongside Khalifa, 29. “We love Sebastian. He’s our beautiful child, and he’s super awesome,” she gushed, according to Instagram. “Happy birthday, pumpkin!”
The model and the “See You Again” rapper, who split in September 2014 after a year of marriage, dressed as Batgirl and Batman, respectively. “[They] were dancing together, very cute,” a source tells Us Weekly. “They are not back together, but they are good coparents. Amber’s mom was dressed as Superwoman.”
Rose’s BFF Blac Chyna and her 4-year-old son, King Cairo, whom she shares with ex Tyga, also attended the bash. The source tells Us that Chyna, 28, was not wearing her engagement ring. (Us exclusively reported last week that Chyna and her fiancé, Rob Kardashian, have split again.)
Lamar Odom, Perez Hilton, Evelyn Lozada, Kim Porter and Tom Arnold were among the many other celeb attendees.
Rose and Khalifa’s party for Sebastian came a week after they stepped out together — and kissed! — at Clive Davis‘ annual pre-Grammys bash, sparking rumors that they were a couple again. The talk show host, who split from Dancing With the Stars‘ Val Chmerkovskiy days earlier, later set the record straight on Instagram, writing, “Wiz and I are family and we will be a family for the rest of our lives for Sebastian. … We are very much still divorced and not together.”
