It all started with Reham Abdel Ghafour and Nahed El-Sebai going public with daring hairdos; and now it’s everywhere. Menna Shalaby and Yousra El-Louzy were featured in Vogue Arabia photo-shoots looking like 2018 more than 2018 itself! It’s fresh, modern, and the right makeover for summer time.

Jane Seymour was feeling “better-than-ever” while posing for a new Playboy pictorial.

The 67-year-old actress posted a photo Wednesday on Instagram from her third feature for the magazine, having previously posed in 1973 and 1987.

“I’m THRILLED to finally share this with you!” Seymour captioned the image, which shows her smiling in a pink coat and slip in bed.

“I was recently photographed and interviewed in my home by Playboy. I open up about my career, my family, feeling better-than-ever at 67 and so much more!” she said. “[Photo by] @feaverish.”

Seymour spoke to Playboy at her home in Malibu, Calif. She discussed growing older in the interview, saying her looks are all-natural and that she feels “much sexier” at 67 than when she was younger.

“I haven’t done any surgeries or injections or anything. I haven’t done any of it. So I still look like ‘me,'” the star said. “Everyday I’m kind of tempted, but then I look at people I know and I don’t [recognize] them. I’m authentically being me. That’s important to me.”

“I feel much sexier now than I ever did when I was younger. Then, I was like, ‘Oh gosh, I’m supposed to be sexy. What is that?!'” she added. “There’s an enormous freedom in having lived as long as I have. Like my father used to say, I’m comfortable in my own skin.”

Seymour is known for the James Bond film Live and Let Die, and for playing Dr. Michaela “Mike” Quinn on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. She most recently appeared in the movie The Female Brain starring Whitney Cummings.

British stars Dua Lipa and Stormzy beamed in sheer delight as they won two awards each at the BRIT Awards 2018, held at London’s 02 Arena on Wednesday night.

The New Rules hitmaker, 22, scooped British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough, while the groundbreaking grime artist, 24, took home British Album of the Year and British Male Solo Artist.

The Big For Your Boots star closed the star-studded show with an impassioned appeal to Theresa May about the progression of aid for Grenfell Tower victims.

The delighted duo posed together inside the Winners’ Room as they held up their crimson red oblong statues, designed by Sir Anish Kapoor.

The Be The One singer looked sensational in a plunging baby blue gown, embellished with ravishing tassels throughout.

Dua wore her raven tresses in her signature poker straight style and accentuated her striking features with cyan blue eyeshadow.

Opting for casual attire, Thornton Heath native Stormzy wore a slouchy hooded jumper and fitted black jeans.

The British-Albanian star made history as she became the first female in the history of the Brits to be nominated for five awards.

She was also nominated for British Single, British Artist Video of the Year and the prestigious Mastercard British Album of the Year for her self-titled Top Ten debut, which produced the No. 1 single New Rules and three more Top 40 singles.

Beaming: Ed Sheeran appeared in high spirits as he won the Global Success 2018 award,

Stormzy’s debut album Gang Signs and Prayer was the first grime album to reach number one on the UK Albums Chart.

The Blinded By Your Grace hitmaker ended the show with a passionate plea about the Grenfell Tower fire, which broke out in June 2017 and caused over 70 deaths.

In a direct rap, addressed to the British Prime Minister, Stormzy said: ‘Yo Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell? Do you think we’ve just forgotten about Grenfell? You criminals!’

The star proceeded to remove his jumper as he performed with a heavy gush of artificial rain.

He continued: ‘You got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages!’

‘We should burn your house down, we’ll see if you can manage it!’

Hosted by Jack Whitehall, fans saw performances from the likes of Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith Rita Ora and Liam Payne.

Making a statement! In a direct rap, addressed to the British Prime Minister, Stormzy said: ‘Yo Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?’

The international categories saw huge megastars including Drake, Beck, P!nk, Taylor Swift, Killers, Kendrick Lamar and main show performers Foo Fighters up for awards, as well as Bjork’s ninth BRIT nomination for Best International Female.

Rag’N’Bone Man won Best British Single for Human, but he faced stiff competition from J Hus for Did You See, Clean Bandit for Symphony, Liam Payne ft Quavo for Strip That Down, Calvin Harris ft Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean for Feels, Dua Lipa for New Rules, Ed Sheeran for Shape Of You, Jax Jones for You Don’t Know Me, Jonas Blue for Mama and Little Mix for Touch.

As always the public voted for the Best British Single category – which is usually made up of the best-selling releases from the past year.

Elsewhere Jorja Smith won Critics’ Choice, while Steve Mac was named the Producer of the Year.

Jason Iley, BRITs Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Sony Music UK and Ireland said: ‘This year’s nominations, as well as the incredible performances on our launch show tonight, are representative of an exciting, genre spanning and vibrant year in British music with a strong mix of established acts alongside new and emerging artists who are set to become the big names of the future.’

Controversial: Stormzy rapped, ‘You got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages!’

Director Ryan Coogler thanked fans on Twitter for coming out to the movie theater and making his latest film, the Marvel epic Black Panther, a box office success.

Black Panther, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright, grossed $242 million in North America during its opening weekend making it the second-highest four-day weekend haul behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment, but I will try,” Coogler said Tuesday in his letter addressed to moviegoers. “Filmmaking is a team sport. And our team was made up [of] amazing people from all over the world who believed in this story. Deep down we all hoped that people would come to see a film about a fictional country on the continent of Africa, made up of a cast of people of African descent.”

“Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong,” he continued. “It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film- But to see people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to our posters with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theaters- often moved me and my wife to tears.”

“Thank you for giving our team of filmmakers the greatest gift: The opportunity to share this film, that we poured our hearts and souls into, with you,” Coogler continued after more thanks for fans and critics who praised the film and before mentioning a line from the film, “Wakanda Forever.”

Boseman will be returning as Black Panther in Marvel’s upcoming Avengers sequel, Infinity War which is set to arrive on May 4.

Aden posted a black and white photo of herself posing with Rihanna, while Hammam shared two pictures of the “Wild Thoughts” singer with the caption: “The cutest, the sweetest and the realest! Happy birthday Ri.”

For her part, Rihanna, who is currently in a relationship with prominent Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel, shared a photo of herself as a baby and captioned it with a message to her mother, Monica.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter! Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!” the nine-time Grammy winner wrote.

Justin Bieber proudly took on the role of groomsman at his father Jeremy Bieber’s wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Monday (19.02.18).

The ‘Sorry’ hitmaker looked over the moon in several official wedding photographs shared on social media yesterday (20.02.18).

In one he can be seen throwing his hands in the air as he rushed down the makeshift beach aisle, whilst in another he had a huge grin on his face as Jeremy and his new wife Chelsey Rebelo took their vows.

Justin’s new stepmother shared a photograph from their special day, which featured the pop star.

She wrote: “Yesterday was the most amazing day ever. I married my best friend! I love you! (sic)”

While the 23-year-old singer’s dad simply captioned his photo: “Family.”

Justin is believed to have attended the beach ceremony with his on/off girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Though the ‘Wolves’ hitmaker wasn’t visible in any of the ceremony photographs, one of the of the guests shared a picture of Selena with the bride-to-be’s twin nieces and two other attendees prior to the nuptials.

According to PEOPLE, Justin flew to Texas on Sunday (18.02.18) to pick up Selena, 25, before they headed to the Caribbean together for the wedding.

Jeremy took to his Instagram account on the same day to share a picture of himself and Chelsey at the bottom of some airplane steps.

He also shared a photograph of his family in a mini bus on the way to board the plane bound for Jamaica.

Justin and Selena’s latest trip comes after they enjoyed a pre-Valentine’s Day getaway to Laguna Beach earlier this month, where they are said to have resided at the luxurious Montage Hotel.

The pair have been on/off for years after they first started dating in December 2010 and then split in November 2012, but he is said to be glad about having a second chance with the singer.

A source recently said: “Justin wants to be a better man because he doesn’t want to screw things up with Selena. He knows he’s lucky to have this second chance and he’s not taking it for granted.”

Demi Lovato is “proud” of her “no-more-dieting thighs”.

The ‘Confident’ singer has previously battled with an eating disorder and insecurities about her body, but on Wednesday (21.02.18) she showed those days are gone as she flaunted her pins.

She captioned a picture of her laying across a garden swing chair: “These are what I call no more dieting thighs and I’m proud of them #thickthighssavelives.. (sic)”

The 25-year-old beauty recently opened up to her fans – known as Lovatics – about her “challenging” battle with an eating disorder and how she has stopped seeking perfection.

Writing alongside another picture of her legs, she wrote: “I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism.

“Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing.

“Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes, (sic)”

Demi previously spent time in rehab for addiction issues, her eating disorder and self harm, but has learned to “love” herself more and is in a place where she is comfortable with who she is and what she looks like.

She said: “I’ve been working on myself for the past year, more so than I’ve ever worked on myself.

“I’ve surrendered to the process of just learning to love yourself and I think it shows through my pictures.

“I post more bathing suit pictures online. I want to show my fans that it’s possible that they can get to that self love too.”
The ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ singer is still a “perfectionist” who critiques her pictures, but she’s learned to embrace her flaws too.

Discussing another photo she shared on Instagram in which she didn’t particularly like how her legs looked, she said: “I’m a perfectionist. So I decided to post it anyways.

“I thought, ‘It’s me, it’s who I am and I love my body. So I’m just going to post it.”
