Let's not lie to ourselves, we are all GUSHING over the whirlwind romance that's sweeping Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra off their feet.

They are both stunning to look at, and no one can deny how in love they are. Since meeting at the Met Gala in 2017, it's been no secret that they enjoy each other's company, to say the least.

Now that they're engaged, and Priyanka has that WHOPPER of a Tiffany & Co. ring on her finger, we feel it's time to learn how their relationship really started.

Turns out, Nick Jonas sent her a message before their MET Gala date in 2017 simply saying "I think we should connect." Very LinkedIn of you, Nick.

When the duo attended the elite fashion event in May 2017, they were invited to sit at the Ralph Lauren table together, but weren't an item yet.

 They weren’t actually official until May 2018 but by July, the duo were engaged to be married.

So let's get the dirt, how did he go from being her Fashion Forward date to future hubby? Following Chopra's NYC bridal shower, she gave us a few deets on their romance and we are LAPPING it up.

"Just being in the whole situation of finding somebody who can be a partner to you in so many more ways than one is amazing, so yes I'm very excited," she mused. Ugh, they're too cute.

In a separate interview, when asked about her singer fiancé, Priyanka gushed that the key to their relationship is all about a dose of Aretha Franklin's fave thing: respect.

"By that, I don't mean makes coffee for you, not that," she clarified. "But someone who respects the hard work you put into your life."

The bride elaborates that, for her, a respectful person is someone "who respects that if his work is important, so is yours. Or if he makes choices that are important to him, so is your opinion. That's respect, and that's incredible to have."

Their relationship sounds hella healthy to us. We're so happy for them, but where's our formal text message and Met Gala 2019 date?

Asking for a friend…



Even when he left One Direction and broke our hearts, we never stopped loving Zayn Malik, no siree. 

However, now the 23-year-old has given us even more reasons to adore him.

Yup, Mr Malik has graced the cover of Dazed magazine and he's taken his top off to do it too. 

In just-released snaps, the singer can be seen donning a studded leather Marc Jacobs jacket taken from the designer's a/w '16 collection. 

And suffice to say his fans are only delira with the unveiling.

"Ok I'll admit he's hot here," observed one. "My ovaries have exploded," laughed another, while a third fan offered up the simple: "Omg this Zayn is so f***ing beautiful and hot."

In his Dazed interview, Mr Malik touches on his newly-found status of fashion icon. As the magazine highlights, he's now sat in the front row at both Louis Vuitton and Valentino’s spring 2016 shows.

And he landed a major editorial in American Vogue alongside his stunning girlfriend, Gigi Hadid.

Furthermore, he wore a Terminator-like, chrome-sleeved Versace suit to this year's famed Met Gala in New York.

Revealing that he helped design the piece himself, he added: "It’s a bit easy to just dress up in a suit. I like to do things that are a bit outside of that."

The English musician then confirmed that he is rehearsing for live shows AND writing his second album, which, rumour has it, will be out before the end of this year. Eeek!

All those lavish costumes must take quite some time to perfect, as the theme for next year's Met Gala has already been announced.

The Metropolitan Museum Of Art confirmed last night that the 2016 red carpet event will have a futuristic theme, with the official title of Manus X Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology.

The gala, due to take place on May 2 on next year, will kick off a three-month long exhibition under the same theme at New York's Costume Institute.

Anna Wintour will act as official chair for the event – as she has done since 1995 – and will work with Vogue staffers to oversee the benefit committee and 650-strong guest list of stars and philanthropists.

Honorary co-chairs this year include Taylor Swift and Idris Elba, though we can hardly imagine they'll be sweating too much over seating charts and flower arrangements.

Last year's theme, China: Through The Looking Glass, brought costumes back in time as it examined China's influence on Western fashion through the centuries. 

Rihanna certainly had the most memorable look on the night, making the cover of Vogue's special Met Gala edition in her yellow Guo Pei fur-trimmed gown.

Beyoncé also showed off her slimmed-down figure in an incredible sheer Givenchy gown – with rumours she intentionally arrived on the red carpet last to ensure the cameras got a good look.

As for Kim Kardashian, she was equally stunning in a skintight Roberto Cavalli fishtail dress, accompanied by Kanye in a… velvet suit.

Despite her stunning look, Kim was controversially snubbed by Anna Wintour, not even making the list of names on Vogue's special cover.

We cannot WAIT to see next year's red carpet looks.


Earlier, today – she publicly praised the 22 Day Revolution. And Beyonce clearly has reaped more benefits than mere firmer skin… namely an absolute killer derriere.

The star has posted a selection of eye-catching shots to her website, with one photograph in particular garnering plenty of attention.

In it, the 33-year-old can be seen donning a pair of teeny-tiny shorts in black denim. She also has on a black leather jacket – from Saint Laurent. Priced at an eye-watering €4,690, it features a buckle-fastening waist belt, as well as zipped pockets and zipped cuffs.

Supermodel Cara Delevingne has also been seen in the same item.

Ms Knowles has recently been singing the praises of Marco Borges, the pioneer of the 22 Day Revolution. And certainly, the mother-of-one is looking trimmer than ever.

Indeed, at the Met Ball in New York last month, she wowed in a daring sheer dress by Givenchy. 

Riccardo Tisci created the nude number which boasted only strategically placed jewels to hide B's modesty. The singer finished her striking look with a slicked back, curly ponytail, rosy pink lip and striking cat eye.

After trying a vegan diet challenge in 2013, Beyoncé and Mr Borges teamed up to create a meal plan service, 22 Days Nutrition, a partnership which was announced in January. The singer maintains: "If I can do it, anyone can."

For people who want to look and feel like Mrs Carter, Marco recommends eating three meals a day, 30 minutes of daily exercise, and lots water.


Kim Kardashian has an extreme grooming schedule; every hair is in place, her makeup is always spot-on, and her skin is never anything less than perfect.

Why then, does she struggle to find clothes to fit her? Whether she opts for something too small or too big, Kim seems to all-too regularly get it oh-so wrong.

Indeed, just this week – and despite having wowed a day earlier at the Met Ball in a custom-made Roberto Cavalli gown – the reality TV star showed up at her Selfish book launch in New York in an ill-fitting cream skirt that did her few favours. She paired it with a too-tight white lace turtle-neck top.

Mind you, it’s far from the first time that Mrs West has made a fashion mishap – and that’s despite spending hundreds of thousands annually on her wardrobe.

Here, SHEmazing! details Kim’s worst blunders of recent times…

Who’da thought it? But in the topsy-turvy world of celebrity, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara are now officially BFFs.

The 42-year-old Colombian and the 39-year-old Louisiana-native have been spending an incredible amount of time together in recent months — delightfully posting dozens of snaps of their outings to social media.

Reese and Sofia were at the Met Ball this week


The duo grew close during the filming of Hot Pursuit — the Anne Fletcher-directed movie released earlier this year to disastrous reviews. Still, the unfavourable response hasn’t put a dampener on their friendship. Indeed, just this week Reese and Sofia were snuggling up to one another at the Met Ball in New York.

Yesterday, Reese launched her much-hyped website, Draper James, which sells clothing, accessories, homeware items, and stationary. It proved to be a huge success too; within hours, many of the items had already sold out.

Meanwhile, Sofia is currently locked in a legal battle with her former fiancé Nick Loeb over embryos they had frozen during their relationship. She’s now moved on to Joe Manganiello, whom she is due to marry later this year, and wants the embryos destroyed — against Nick’s wishes.



We love a new-couple alert – especially when it involves two gorgeous megastars. And although no one should rush out and buy a hat just yet, we reckon that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are going to be the hot pairing of 2015. In fact, we're already calling them "Iriadley". 

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have been spotted together


The actor and supermodel (always a classic union) were said to be “canoodling” at Rihanna’s Met Ball after-party in New York’s swish Up & Down club. The reported observation comes hot-on-the-heels of their theatre date last month, when Bradley and Irina saw Finding Neverland together on Broadway. Also last month, they were both present at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

And now Spanish publication Hola! has a photograph of the duo strolling through Manhattan arm-in-arm. Apparently they’ve known each other for some time but have only recently begun dating.

Irina had arrived at the Met Ball in a stunning purple-tinged Versace dress, but her rumoured beau stayed at home until the after-parties kicked-off.

Bradley, 40, previously dated Suki Waterhouse, 23, while 29-year-old Irina had a much-publicised five-year relationship with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, 30.

The Russian beauty has appeared on the cover of the likes of Sports Illustrated and made her first feature film, Hercules, last year. Meawhile, Oscar-nominated Bradley is best-known for roles in The Hangover, American Sniper, and Silver Linings Playbook.

Cristiano Ronaldo with Irina – the pair had a five-year relationship


Rihanna’s party was certainly a celebrity hotspot on Monday night: Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez, and Kendall Jenner were all present. 


Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian all turned up at the Met Ball in New York last night donning daring dresses that exposed oodles of flesh. 

With nothing more than strategically-placed beading, embroidery, and sequin to protect their modesty, the trio of superstars certainly demanded plenty of attention.

Jennifer opted for a Versace dragon dress in bright red – a nod to the night's theme: China, Through The Looking Glass. Donetella Versace had earlier teased reporters by telling them that the singer's attire was best viewed from behind.

Beyonce went for Givenchy, pulling a series of fierce poses on the red-carpet alongside her husband, Jay Z. She wore her hair in a high-top ponytail, allowing for the full effect of her dramatic garb to be appreciated. She also piled on spectacular cocktail rings to complete the look.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian stole the show arriving on the arm of her husband of almost a year, Kanye West, in a bespoke Roberto Cavalli gown complete with a sweeping white-feathered train. It was designed by newly-instated creative director Peter Dundas, who only left his post at Emilio Pucci weeks ago. 

Kim Kardashian opted for this Roberto Cavalli number


The reality TV star this morning posted a picture to her Instagram account of her and J-Lo, whom she referred to as "my idol".

The Met Ball is hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Tickets to the event costs an eye-watering €22,500 – though all the big celebrities are invited by the major fashion houses who buy up tables to promote their brand.



Jennifer Lawrence recently revealed that she tried and failed to dance with the great Jennifer Lopez at the Met Ball a few weeks ago.

But JLo has now revealed that she didn’t mean to reject the star, but simply felt it was too crowded to dance.

Jennifer Lawrence talked about her dance rejection from Jennifer Lopez on her recent appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show.

“…it’s just me looking at J.Lo, going, ‘Dance with me!’ She was like, ‘I think I’m just gonna observe,'” poor Jen recalled before blasting Jimmy: “You made me look like a freak in front of J.Lo! Do you know what that feels like?”

But Jennifer Lopez has now said that she didn’t mean to be rude to Jlaw, but felt she wouldn’t be able to move on the dance floor

“This is how I remember it: I remember that we were at the Met Ball, and Kanye was about to perform, and it was like a crazy moment. She was like, ‘Let’s go dance,’ and I was like, ‘No, I’m good right here. But I didn’t mean it like, ‘I don’t want to dance with you.’ I just meant, like, ‘It’s so crowded in here. Let’s stay right here.'”

The singer said she never met seem to be rude towards Jennifer and would love another opportunity to dance with the actress.

Maybe next time Jen!




With proposals, wardrobe malfunctions, more wardrobe malfunctions and now a near-death experience, Monday’s Met Ball must be the most dramatic one in the history of the event.

Ok, so ‘near-death experience’ is a bit of an exaggeration, but when Hayden Panettiere fell on the red carpet stairs, things could have been a lot worse.

The Nashville actress caught her foot on the skirt of her beautiful Dennis Basso gown as she tried to walk down the stairs and slipped.

Thankfully Hayden was fine and quickly got back up, taking it all in good humour.

We knew Jennifer Lawrence was a trendsetter, but this is just ridiculous.
