10 "Gilmore Girls" Moments That Will Totally Make You Cringe Now
Huffington Post - 6 days
For Glamour, by Christopher Rosa. The Gilmore Girls revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, debuted on Netflix in November 2016, and it was cute and fun and didn’t do much to satisfy fans’ appetite for clean character resolutions. The revival was written just like the original TV show was — for better and for worse. Better, because Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino stuffed the four 90-minute episodes with pop culture references and emotional moments galore — basically, the reasons why we love this show so much. But it wasn’t all great: They kept in the same type of culturally insensitive “jokes” that permeated the show during its seven-year run. Don’t know what we’re talking about? It’s understandable: You probably watched Gilmore Girls as a child or teen, and its problematic elements flew over your head. That, or you didn’t even notice them given the racist, homophobic, and fat-shaming TV landscape of the early 2000s. This was the norm, which is exactly why the humor ...

Blake Lively Calls BS On Hollywood Beauty Standards
Huffington Post - 12 days
Blake Lively isn’t one for facades, especially now that she is a mom.  Yes, Lively is a genetically blessed actress who is currently the face of beauty brand L’Oreal, but she keeps it real when it comes to the expectations on women.  “We have really unrealistic beauty standards and beauty norms,” Lively told Refinery29. “What you’re seeing on red carpets and in magazines takes a lot of effort and a lot of people. People don’t understand that it’s all very constructed. What little girls are seeing isn’t what [these celebrities] look like when they wake up in the morning — even though it’s no less beautiful.” The star has been open about sharing a look behind the curtain, regularly posting photos on her Instagram of her prep process with her glam team.  Thank you @lorealmakeup @kristoferbuckle @rodortega4hair @lorealhair for making me look like I slept more than 2 hours last night. #breastfeedingmama A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on Jan 18, 2 ...

The Best Hair Tips You Can Steal From Celebrity Stylists
Huffington Post - about 1 month
For Glamour, by Deanna Pai. It’s awards season again. And while La La Land was good and all (or so we’re guessing from those seven Golden Globe wins), we’re also here for the celebrity hairstyles. So far, this year has delivered. Forget the sleek, simple style of years past (or, you know, 2016). With two shows on the circuit now checked off, we’ve already seen a mixed bag of really cool looks. Example A: At the 2017 Golden Globes, Gal Gadot opted for a twisted ponytail, while Reese Witherspoon went with a modern chignon — which is wild, since she tends to play it safe on the red carpet. Example B: Blake Lively’s waves at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards (and, OK, really anywhere.) The brains behind all these looks? The stylists, of course, since it takes more than a pair of scissors to make hair red-carpet-worthy. That’s why this awards season we’re asking top celebrity hairstylists to tell us their go-to red-carpet tricks that don’t require a master’s in glam-squad-ography. ...

What Bra To Wear With 6 Of Spring's Biggest Trends
Huffington Post - about 1 month
For Glamour, by Megan Gustashaw. Any woman who’s had an outfit ruined by an annoying lack of undergarment options can confirm that when it comes to your bra collection, diversity is king. Especially right now, given the number of unique trends coming down the line for spring 2017 that require the right bra to pull them off. The good news: You probably have most of these bras sitting in your undie drawer right now. If not, we suggest doing a restock — they’re all super versatile and can found at every price point and cup size. Read on to see which ones pair best with six of our favorite spring 2017 trends. The Spring Trend: One-Shoulder Tops and Dresses We called this look one of Spring 2017’s most wearable trends for a reason; though it shows a bit of skin, practically any body type — and any bust size — can pull it off. Wear Underneath: Strapless Bras Most one-shoulder tops and dresses should do fine with a standard-issue strapless bra. Go for a no-frills seamless ...

Ryan Reynolds Credits Blake Lively For Keeping Him 'Sane' Amid Anxiety Attacks
Huffington Post - about 2 months
If Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively can weather the train wreck that was “Green Lantern,” then these two can make it through anything, right? Speaking with Variety in a new interview ahead of the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Reynolds, who is nominated in the category of Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for “Deadpool,” opened up about how Lively helps him handle the stress of life in the spotlight. “By the time we were in post[-production], we’d been to Comic-Con, and people went crazy for it. The expectations were eating me alive,” Reynolds said of the massive hype before “Deadpool” went on to make a killing at the box office.  “Blake helped me through that,” he explained. “I’m lucky to have her around just to keep me sane.” The father of two has candidly discussed his struggle with anxiety before, revealing that he had “a little bit of a nervous breakdown” before the film’s premiere.

An Open Letter To Everyone Spending The Holidays Alone
Huffington Post - 2 months
For Glamour, by Lane Moore. Right off the bat, I want you to know that I totally get it. Right now the entire world is talking about nothing but the freaking holidays. Commercials, movies, special TV episodes, reruns of special TV episodes, social media, advertisements. All of it. And not just that, every single one of those outlets is talking about family over the holidays because everyone has a family on the holidays! The holidays are a time to spend with your family! And since everyone has a perfect family they spend regular time with, everyone loves the holidays! And if you don’t love the holidays, you must be a cold-hearted psychopath!!! This is likely all you’ve been hearing lately, and that’s a shame. Because whether you lost your loved ones because they passed on, or because they were abusive, or because they abandoned you, or because you left them when you felt unsafe, or because they didn’t accept you, you are a special breed who, right now, feels like you do not fit ...

I Wore Crocs To Work For A Week — And Lived To Tell The Tale
Huffington Post - 3 months
For Glamour, by Noah Silverstein. I pride myself on maintaining a certain taste level in my day-to-day life — I like to call it elevated merch-wear, accumulated after several Yeezy and Bieber merch splurges. But at the end of the day, there is a polish in silhouette that makes it work for the office. With footwear, in particular, my chosen pair any given day is rarely arbitrary and I’ve accumulated a large working arsenal of Adidas sneakers (mostly white), boots, and slides that satisfy my minimalist tendencies. So when I first reported the incoming Crocs trend that emerged on Christopher Kane’s stellar spring 2017 runway, I greeted the look with some ill feelings. Talk about clashing with my clean-and-simple outlook! But on the other hand, the seamless way Kane interpreted them paired with his exceptional wears led me to believe incorporating them into my own wardrobe wouldn’t be as difficult as I’d imagined. And let’s face it, I love a good fashion challenge. So, for the sake ...

Pop culture fans will remember Taylor Swift’s celeb-filled 4th of July bash. There were fireworks, there was a water slide and ― most importantly ― there was an unforgettable couples photo. In the perfectly posed pic, “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds looks less than thrilled while seated with wife Blake Lively, beside former couple Swift and Tom Hiddleston, and Swift’s friends.  A photo posted by Britany LaManna (@britmaack) on Jul 5, 2016 at 12:11pm PDT That is not the face of summertime Swiftie joy.  While the Internet thought Reynolds may or may not have been held hostage at the event by Swift and her squad powers, the “Deadpool” star explained that that’s just his regular resting “dead” face.  “That’s a problem I’ve had all my life,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “If I’m not aware a photo is being taken, my natural resting face is one of a man dying.

Both of her parents and all of her siblings are, or have been, in the entertainment industry. Blake and her four older siblings/half-siblings were raised as Southern Baptists. During Lively's childhood, her parents took her with them to acting classes that they taught because they did not want to leave her with a babysitter. Lively said that watching her parents teach acting classes helped her learn the "drills" of acting and gain confidence as she got older. She was initially not particularly interested in acting, and wanted to attend Stanford University. During the summer between her junior and senior years of high school, her brother Eric asked his agent to send her on a few auditions over a period of a few months. From these auditions, she was cast as Bridget for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Lively filmed her scenes in that film between her junior and senior years at Burbank High School. While at Burbank, Lively served as senior class president, a cheerleader, and a member of the championship choir.
