We are channelling all our girl power energy into our Halloween costumes this year. There’s no better group of people to dress up with than your gals so we’ve conjured up a list of the greatest girl gangs in history.

We’ll feature girl gangs from the 1980s to modern day queens who rule the world.

The Heathers:

The 1989 flick features one of the quirkiest and (meanest) girl gangs in cinema history. Gather up the gang and rock those iconic blazers with padded shoulders, the backcombed hair and don’t forget your scrunchie.

The Original Disney Princesses:

Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and Belle are the OG Disney gals so why not step into the magical world of Disney this Halloween. Plus, you’ll certainly stand out from the crowd because there’s no doubt everyone will be dressing up as Elsa again this year.

The Barden Bellas:

Pitch Perfect is a movie that celebrates female friendship and supports people who sing ALL the time- we couldn’t love it more if we tried. The perk of dressing up as the Bellas means you can randomly sing all night long because it’s ‘part of the costume’.

The Derry Girls

National heroes. Icons. Irish legends. Who wouldn't want to dress up as Erin, Clare, Michelle, Orla and of course, the wee English fella.

Rachel, Phoebe and Monica:

Embrace that glorious 90s style by dressing up as the Friends gals with your two closest girls. We’ve always dreamed of rading Rachel’s iconic wardrobe and now we can.


The shops are full of plaid EVERYTHING at the moment so putting this outfit together will be simple. Find the most flawless plaid skirt suit and feel free to mutter ‘Ugh, as if’ to anyone who asks who you're supposed to be.

The Pink Ladies:

We're ending with one of the original girl gangs- the Pink Ladies. Go back in time to the 60s and channel your inner Frenchie or Rizzo with this old-school look. And remember, don’t forget your neck scarf.



The Unmissable Rewards Diner, Ireland’s first singing diner created by Bord Gáis Energy has officially opened its doors today. The 1950’s themed pop-up diner will be serving an All-American menu as a pre-show experience, for Grease from today until September 28 at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

Bord Gáis Energy has created The Unmissable Rewards Diner as a reward to theatre goers, combining the thrill of going to see an amazing stage production, with a money can’t buy pre-theatre dining experience.

Get your leather T-Birds or Pink Ladies jacket and head back to 1959 as a Grease prequel is happening.

Yes, were are BUZZING. 

Its exciting news for Grease fans as the beloved musical is getting a back story for it's two main characters – high-schoolers Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson.

The 1978 flick was a smash hit when it was released and has gone on to claim cult status.

It tells the story of two teens – John Travolta’s rough-and-tumble greaser, Olivia Newton-John’s good-girl from Australia – who fall madly in love one summer only to be reunited on the first day of their senior year.

This movie will focus on how the couple met and the summer they spent together.

Paramount Players has chosen John August to write the script for the new film, which is currently in development.

The title of the movie is a nod to the song that the pair sing about their summer fling in the original movie – Summer Nights.

The phenomenon of Grease is not hard to understand as the movie has everything from a fantastic ensemble cast sizzling with chemistry, 1950s nostalgia and songs that many people could sing by heart.

A sequel came out in 1982, titled Grease 2, which got slated but has a great soundtrack and a cast that did their best with a flimsy script.

The live TV version in 2016, which starred Aaron Tveit and Julianne Hough as the central couple, had rave reviews and was generally viewed as a success.

Let's just hope that this prequel stands up to the genius that is Grease – because we are hopelessly devoted to it. 



Old grease is pretty rotten.

Don't get us wrong, we love anything fried… but stealing old restaurant grease is a weird thing to do.

Weird, until you find out how lucrative it is.

Bloomberg has reported an increase of thieves robbing old vegetable oil, and while it's completely gross, it makes them a hella loada cash.

In fact, 30 per cent of 'golden goo' as they call it, now gets turned into biofuel, enough to make restaurants’ vats of grease the centerpiece of a thriving $75 million (€69m) black market industry.

Sumit Majumdar, who runs a grease-collection business in New York state, told Bloomberg, “It’s like crack money. There’s an actual market for stolen oil.

"It’s almost like a pawn shop or scrap-metal business," he added.

This isn't a new crime either, as USA Today has noted that thefts of grease have been reported as early as 2010.

Do you think this kinda thing will catch on in Ireland? Or is it already happening…?



It's looking like Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta are in talks to bring back Danny and Sandy – and we're a little bit over the moon.

Olivia has confirmed that the pair are chatting about plans for a 40th reunion next year, but she's keeping her cards close to her chest.

Speaking at the Fame Awards at the Hard Rock Live in Las Vegas, where she won the Icon Award, Olivia said: "We are thinking up ways. Nothing to announce yet.

"Forty years anniversary of Grease, which I can’t believe. Time goes so fast. It is so exciting."

According to The Mirror, the Fame Awards producer, Al Browman, said about Olivia: "To hear that she is returning as Sandy with John will be a huge deal for the world. 

"It will be a huge deal. We would welcome them performing at next year's Fame Awards."

We're getting waaay too excited for this.

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



This is SO gross, we just can't wrap our heads around it.

A beauty editor from Seventeen has decided to use pizza grease as a make-up remover, and even though she believes it's "a life-changing discovery," it has turned us off our favourite thing on earth – pizza.

Now, don't get us wrong, as you probably know we have some major pizza-lovin' here in Shemazing! HQ, and if it was healthy enough, we'd eat it every day of the week.

But #FACT, most pizzas are not healthy, and are indeed, greasy, gloopy messes. So, imagine putting that on your skin?!

Kelsey Stegman made the discovery when she was wearing a Wet'n'Wild matte lipstick, which is basically concrete for your lips.

We'll admit that it did remove the make-up quite swiftly, but there's no hope we'd use it on a day to day basis… or at all, really.



Our thoughts are with Vanessa Hudgens today as she has shared the news that her dad, Greg, has passed away.

“I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers,” the actress said on social media.

Vanessa has never shied away from her fathers lengthy battle with cancer, and added on Twitter that she will still perform on Grease tonight.

Tonight, I do the show in his honour," she tweeted.

We're sending all our love to Vanessa's family.


The last time Vanessa Hudgens was in a musical set in high school – creatively called High School Musical – she was the Sandy of the group. 

But now the brunette beauty has turned over a new leaf to play the cool gal of the pack. 

Vanessa has scored the role of Rizzo for Fox's Grease Live production. And she pulls off the sexy look VERY well. 

And as always the girl has got the moves, as seen in the new teaser trailer:

We don't know about you, but we love Ms Hudgens playing the bad girl. 


Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid as fast becoming our favourite top models, and the ladies certainly put on a show last night in their awesome Halloween costumes. 

Kendall, being the fashion model that she is, dressed as renowned designer, Karl Lagerfeld. 

The 19-year-old sported a very impressive white wig and dark sunglasses, while putting on a leggy display on her way to Bootsy Bellows Halloween party with a friend. 

And of course Kendall had to add some glamour to the look in a silver sparkly leotard which cinched her in at the waist. Very high-fashion, Ken!

Meanwhile, Gigi Hadid attended Heidi Klum's Halloween bash in New York, and donned our favourite, Sandy from Grease.

The 20-year-old wore tight spandex leggings, a black crop top, leather jacket and red heels. 

But her hair and make-up were #OnPoint, as she nailed the curly hair and red lippy look.

Upon arrival, Gigi was greeted by Heidi Klum herself, who was dressed as a very elaborate Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.


While Netflix has managed to support our binge-watching addiction and supplies us with ample amounts of eyebrow-raising documentaries or brand new series to get lost it, sometimes we long for the comfort of something more familiar.

Everyone has their own favourite film that they would choose above all others. But, how likely are you to watch it when you can already recite every single line and now all the harmonies on the soundtrack?

Last week, Five Thirty Eight shared their findings of a survey that asked that exact question.

Following a survey that asked people to list the five films which they considered the most re-watchable, the top 25 were discovered.

Coming in at number one was Star Wars. 

The Wizard of Oz grabbed second place, while The Sound of Music, The Lord of the Rings and Gone With The Wind rounded out the top five spots.

Apparently we just cannot get enough of a good epic fantasy adventure as the majority of those surveyed admitted that they are willing to re-watch the Harry Potter series before The Notebook. 

Finding Nemo also makes an appearance, providing further evidence that a squeal is badly needed as it came in before The Avengers, which came in at number 25 on the list.

When breaking down the results by gender, The Wizard of Oz and Lord of the Rings are still in the top five. 

Still, there are some differences in taste: Films featured in the men’s top 20 but not the women’s include Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, Star Trek and Goodfellas. Films favored by women include Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, Grease and Titanic.

People of each gender also had a few films in their top 20 that didn’t make the overall top 25 and failed to appear on the other gender’s list. Men enjoy viewing Die Hard and Gladiator, repeatedly while women preferred Love Actually and You’ve Got Mail.

However, the one constant regardless of age or gender discrepancies was Star Wars. The sci-fi epic consistently featured in the top 10. 



It featured in Marilyn Monroe’s best-known movie moment, so it’s no surprise that her white halterneck dress has been voted the most iconic screen costume of all time.

The William Travilla dress worn by Marilyn in the 1955 film, Seven Year Itch, earned its place in history by billowing around the actresses thighs as she stepped on a subway grate.

The dress was closely followed by Judy Garland’s gingham dress in The Wizard of Oz and Olivia Newton-John’s famous black pants from the final scenes of Grease.

Fourth and fifth places were given to the Ursula Andress bikini from Dr No, and  the black Givenchy dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
