When it comes to influencers, some of the settings which are staged for that perfect shot look absolutely effortless. Too effortless, tbh… suspiciously effortless…

An absolutely gas video has been posted online by @TaylorLorenz which sheds light on the environmental factors which influencers endure.

Whether it's freezing cold weather, sunlight blazing in your eyes or just awkward angles, getting the perfect shot isn't as easy as it looks.

The video displays several influencers and bloggers jostling to take the perfect picture at an intersection in New York, 59th and 5th avenue;

They're working hard, to be fair; they've all gotta compete for the best image possible.

Apparently 59th and 5th is some kind of blogger hotspot, an aesthetically pleasing location which influencers have now plagued.

Some witty Twitter users have compared the video to a favourite dystopian show…

It is pretty reminiscent of THAT Bryce Dallas Howard episode, where everyone can rate each other and give points based on their image and personality, similar enough to Instagram.

 Whether you find the video disturbing, hilarious, mediocre or just plain creepy, it says a lot about how different today's social media world is.

We are hugely entertained by the reaction tweets though… keep 'em coming.


Kendall Jenner has found herself in the midst of controversy again.

This time, it all started when she wore an afro for a photo shoot with Vogue magazine.

The 22-year-old model posed for the photos alongside model Imaan Hamman as part of a series in the November issue of the magazine and online to honour the 15th anniversary of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.

Kendall is seen wearing an afro next to Imaan, whose hair is straightened. 

Followers quickly slammed the images, taken by fashion photographer Mikael Jansson, in the comments, with people to asking why she had been cast instead of a model whose hair was naturally styled like that.


Fifteen years and 150 finalists later, the @CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize has created global stars, local heroes, a must-watch New York Fashion Week, and, most important, a true sense of community among designers of all ages and backgrounds—all with differing aesthetic and commercial aspirations—who communicate, collaborate, and essentially care for one another through the fun and not-so-fun times. Laura Vassar Brock—one of the founders of 2016 #CVFF winner Brock Collection—says, “We spoke to a few friends who had gone through it, and they all said the same thing: that the Fashion Fund is a life-changing experience. And indeed it was!” Tap the link in our bio to learn more. Photographed by @mikaeljansson, styled by @tonnegood, Vogue, November 2018

One wrote, ''why did you use a white celebrity for this shoot instead of a person of colour who rocks this hair naturally'' while another said, ''African Americans were forced to straighten their f$$ing hair in America in order to get jobs.''

Another said, ''if you wore your hair natural it had to be cut short. Hell, the military only allowed dreads two years ago. So GTFOH with 'Blacks straighten their hair'. If we weren’t forced to, I can only hope we wouldn't it! It’s appropriation!"

Vogue has issued a response to this backlash, stating how they were supposed to evoke a nostalgic aesthetic reminiscent of the early 20th century.

They said, ''the image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the '60s and the early '70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras.''

They continued, ''we apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it." 

However, not everyone had a problem with the hairstyle. 

One person wrote, ''I see a teased hair waiting for a beehive! Thatz all!"

Another said, ''all the anger about this is nonsense. Even if the intent was to be an afro its hella not! Look at our black kings and queens and google what an afro looks like! Angry for nothing."

What do you think – massive overreaction or fair enough? 


There's not much that Queen Bey can't pull off.

This can be seen with her recent Instagram pics which showed her enjoying an impromptu photoshoot session on her private jet. 

And how fab does she look?

The singer first posted a video collage, featuring several pictures of herself rocking a Zimmerman pink paisley ensemble.

Known for her killer fashion choices, she paired her ruffled paisley shirt and matching high-waisted shorts with a boxy white handbag and clear heels. 

Her hair up was swept up in an epic blonde top knot and the look was finished off with pink sunglasses, hoop earrings and a statement red lip. 


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Bey decided to ditch the caption and simply let her images speak for themselves – which they did.

Her 115 million followers showed their support with comments such as, ''SLAY PRETTY IN PINK'' and ''You are PERFECT in every way. No matter what you do, what you wear, what you sing'' while others simply opted for love hearts or fire emojis.

However, even Beyonce suffers mishaps, which was seen recently on stage during her On The Run II Tour in Warsaw, Poland.

She lost her balance during a cover of Ed Sheeran's Perfect, as the "flying stage" she was standing on suddenly stopped. 

Thankfully she wasn't injured and was helped down a ladder by crew members.

And if anyone can make climbing down a ladder in high-heeled PVC boots look stylish, it is the Queen of Pop. 


Kim Kardashian has been causing quite a stir on social media for the past 24 hours. 

The reality TV star has been posting a series of images from a recent photoshoot, which include a number of topless photos. 

Kim has been very vocal in the past about her thoughts on the policing of the female body, and the fall out from this shoot has been no different. 

Many fans and critics shamed Kim for the images, claiming that as a mother of three she should not be presenting herself in such a sexualised manner.

One picture in particular, which shows Kim naked except for thong underwear and an open fur coat, has come under the most scrutiny due to the semi- visibility of the business mogul's nipple. 

Kim has clapped back, posting another snap from the shoot to Twitter, with the caption: 'Can I get zero f*cks please?'

The photo has over 3.5 million likes on Instagram.

One celeb has commented on Kim's raunchy look. 

Lindsay Lohan commented under a pic of Kim posted by Perez Hilton, saying: 'i'm confused.'

Never one to pull any punches, Kim retorted: 'You know what's confusing… your sudden foreign accent.' 

The NSFW shoot has been a bone of contention among Kim's fans, with some congratulating her for celebrating her body in whatever way she sees fit, while others are less than impressed.

'Your really overdoing it now,' said one Twitter fan.  'And it’s sad because I used to look up to you.'

'I know you could care less but why ? Why are you showing women that they should show their bodies like the way your doing?'

'Why does her naked body make you not look up to her?? and why SHOULDNT women show their bodies?? is the female form THAT offensive?' responded another. 

Kim has never been shy about sharing her naked image with fans. 

The children's clothing designer previously lashed out against criticism of her nude pics, writing a post on her website saying:

'I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime—and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?'

'It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. Let's move on already, I have.'

'I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin.'

'I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me.'

'The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality.'

'You be you and let me be me. I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.'

Hear, hear Kim. 



On a blustery Tuesday morning a few weeks ago, I received an invitation from L.O.V Cosmetics to "star as an icon" in my own "personal beauty cover shoot."

For years, I worked alongside stylists in Dublin and took part in everything from commercial photoshoots, to fashion shows and TV styling.

I was always the one on the floor, pinning the models' clothes, taping the bottoms of their shoes and quickly fixing their hair if it went askew, so when I read the invitation, my first reaction was uncontrollable laughter followed by, 'eh, noooo'.

But, after a bit of thought (and a lot of encouragement from my colleagues), I said 'why not?' and confirmed the beauty shoot.

Now, I'm no model. I'm barely 5ft, my skin has scars from years of horrid spots and I can only take a good picture in selfie-mode, so to say I was a little bit apprehensive on the morning of the shoot was an understatement.

I knew various other journalists would be joining me on the day, and some have been in the industry for years, so walking into Bond Street Studios with my red face and choppy hair was a tad scary.

But, that anxiety soon disappeared as I met the team I would be working with that day. From the make-up artists, the photographer, the hairstylists and the PRs, I felt extremely comfortable in my own skin, and chatted away as if I had been doing this thang for years.

My make-up artist, Sarah Lanagan, eased me into the morning, and along with doing a stellar job on my face, she also gave me some great advice about which L.O.V make-up would best suit my skin, how to use it properly (don't just lash foundation onto your skin), and how to achieve the ultimate glam look.

My next port-of-call was the hair station, where I met two lovely hair stylists from Kazumi Hair Salon. When I was an assistant stylist, this was usually the time I would scramble to get everything together, bombing around the studio to make sure all was set up and good to go for when the model's gruiage was set and ready.

But on that day, I wasn't the one running around. And that was weird.

I was chatting and having a laugh with the ladies… which strangely made me feel uneasy because I knew it was coming close to photoshoot time.

And once my soft curls were firmly hairsprayed down, that is when I started to feel anxious.

It was time for the camera.


Beauty shoot this morning with L.O.V make up #thenewlov @lovcosmetics @olearypr

A photo posted by Olivia Hayes (@oliviahayess) on

I hopped in front of the lens and bright lights, with a queasy feeling in my tummy, and smiled.


I didn't know how to pose. I didn't know what direction to turn my head. My cheeks were getting jitters from trying to keep a smile on my face. I felt awkward and as if I was an imposter.

But, as the photoshoot went on, I eased into it. With direction from Kip Carroll, the man behind the picture, I was able to figure out what angle works well and how to get a killer jaw-line.

Being behind the camera is fun, but hard work. Being in front of the camera, felt extremely glamorous and I ended up becoming giddy with excitement as the shoot went on.

When we finished, Kip gave me a little sneak peek at the photos, and I was actually happy. I thought I'd look like the awkward kid I used to be in my school photographs – but what I was looking at was the exact opposite. I looked confident.

Leaving Bond Street Studios, I felt good – completely reversed to how I felt walking in.

I met fabulous professionals, learned an abundance of beauty tips, and all in all, heightened my self-esteem – even if it was just for that morning.

That day, I learned that being behind the camera is my place to be, but I'm glad I went in front of it for once. And to say I'm happy with the outcome is an understatement.


It seems like these two are still in the honeymoon period and now Storm and Ronan Keating are finally sharing their Vanity Fair photoshoot with us.

Storm took to Instagram to show off a few shots from the UK edition of the fashion magazine. 

In one picture, the blogger lays across her hubby as he poses in a bright yellow Porsche.

Storm shared the photos from photographer of the shoot, Charlie Gray’s page.

In this shot, Ronan is sitting on his own in the car, giving a striking glare into the camera.

The photographer muses that Ronan looks very “Steve McQueen” in the snap.



Well, it's a busy day for Conor McGregor.

First, news of a new reality TV show about him and his family broke, and now, it has been confirmed that the MMA fighter will pose NUDE (yes, nude) for ESPN's Body Magazine.

The news was announced on Twitter yesterday, and it will see Conor be the sixth MMA fighter to ditch the clobber for the mag.

Other fighters who have posed naked in the past are Jon Jones, Ronda Rousey and Cristiane Santos.

There has been no word yet on when the issue will hit shelves, but we can see Conor's photoshoot being very… erm, imaginative.



Kylie Jenner has gone all out for her new video/photoshoot this week. 

The 18-year-old uploaded a series of pictures and a video to her website, thekyliejenner.com, of her wearing bondage-style lingerie while she wriggles around on a fur blanket. 

The reality star turned to her fave photographer for the shoot, Sasha Samsonova, and even borrowed a few looks from her big sister, Kim, showing off her bum in a black thong. 

She's also seen hugging a random man in one part of th video, which we're sure Tyga wasn't too happy about. 

One thing's for sure though, she certainly started her New Year with a big BANG. 



After revealing her secrets to her dramatic weight loss, in which she lost 11 pounds, Khloe Kardashian has shared more naked snaps from her photoshoot in St Barts. 

It's no surprise she wants to show off her trim frame, but we didn't expect to see this much of her. But move over, Kim! There's a new hot Kardashian in town.

Yesterday, Khloe shared the photos on her website, KhloeWithAK.com which sees her lying in a shallow pool, showing off her curves as she leans to the side. There's also a slight nip slip, but the reality star kept (most of) her modesty intact by strategically placing her arm over her boob. 

We first got a glimpse of her naked photoshoot back in November when she posted a pic of her sitting poolside, showing off her plump derriere. 

The shoot was done during a recent Kardashian family holiday to St Barts. Her sister, Kendall stood in as the photographer and she had her usual glam team on hand to help out.

Khloe did admit though that she might of had a bit of liquid courage during the shoot, but we'll let that go because she looks smokin'.


They performed a sexy strip show at a charity last year, so it's no surprise the TOWIE men are flashing the flesh once again. 

This year Bobby Norris, Jake Hall, Tommy Mallet, James Lock and Pete Wicks gave their fans an early Christmas present and recreated the famous (and shirtless) Magic Mike XXL movie poster. 

Only dressed in jeans and runners, the reality stars put their very impressive abs on show in the sexy photoshoot. 

Speaking to Heat magazine, Bobby joked: "I look a little '118 118' with this tight little perm," and Jake said, "I'm the best dancer in the whole cast – they call me snakehips."

While Tommy, who donned Channing Tatum for the photo, let us in on a little secret: "Don't tell anyone there's contouring – I've been training for this for two years."

Sad news came for the TOWIE cast this morning though as their beloved Nanny Pat passed away in the early hours. 



For as long as we can remember, Emma Watson has stuck to her golden roots and is not one to drastically play up her looks. 

But the 25-year-old recently donned a much darker hair colour than were all used to for a romantic gothic photoshoot for Vogue Italia.


A photo posted by Emma Watson (@em.watson) on

The actress was photographed for an editorial spread and to no one's surprise, she looks gorgeous – even with the hair change. 

Her hair wasn't the only thing going a little darker though as she was featured with very smokey eyes, and moody clothing; quite the opposite from her usual bright and girly attire.

There's no telling if the new look was strictly for the shoot, but if it's permanent, she totally rocks it. Here's Vogue Italia's video of the fab photoshoot:


Zendaya Coleman is not like your regular 18-year-old.

She is probably one of the most mature teenagers to ever walk the planet and in a new interview (and awesome photoshoot) for Galore magazine, she opens up about how she deals with racism and how she stays so grounded. 

"My parents always taught me that there is knowledge in your voice," she explained of the infamous Giuliana Rancic comments on her hair at the 2015 Oscars red carpet. 

"I think the way we react to things is a big indicator of our character and what type of person we are." 

And she's so right, as many young celebs aren't able to deal with media attention (we're looking at you Lindsay Lohan). 

"I just had too much respect for myself and didn't want to prove everybody right that's waiting for me to be ignorant and do something dumb, so I took my time until I thought of the best way I could address the comments."

She discusses more about how she prides herself in her honesty throughout the interview and why she believes she needs to stay true to herself on social media. 

"I realised that if I don't like something, I can change it. If I don't feel comfortable with something, then I have a voice to say it's not cool."

We love Zendaya for her no-nonsense attitude to life and think she's a great role model for teenagers growing up, both in and out of the spotlight.
