What are your V-Day plans, gals? 

For many of us, it's pretty much the usual shebang of perusing ice-cream flavours in Tesco, and wallowing on the couch while feeling guilty as a feminist for wallowing on Valentine's Day. 

Ariana Grande is turning the single life into a trend, at least that's one comforting thing. Plus our pets give us more love than we even deserve.

Meanwhile, in Billionaire Boujee-land, Kylie Jenner is prepping for a new Kylie Cosmetics launch:

She appears to have gotten a red lady makeover, and we have to admit she's looking pure Poison Ivy-level glamour; serving Jessica Rabbit realness 24/7 just became her new niche.

We're assuming that this isn't Kylie's natural hair, seeing as the Kardashians can afford wigs, extensions, photoshop, stylists, fashion designers, celebrity hairdressers, etc.

Kylie's emanating Kim's Valentine's Day vibe form 2017, because the photographer responsible for this Kylie Cosmetics shoot also shot Kim's viral candy hearts campaign in 2018.

While Kim's hairdo is a lighter shade of pastel-coloured pink, Kylie has gone all-out pillarbox red.

Which do you prefer? We're feelin' Kylie's wavy, short hair because it's Moulin Rouge vibes to the max.

She'll be releasing the new collection on February 1, stay tuned.


Jesy Nelson is already getting into the New Year, new you spirit.

Chopping off her locks and going for a dark colour, the style looks absolutely stunning on the singer.

The Little Mix member had recently coloured her hair bright orange with touches of blonde.

However, it seems as if shorter hair is making a comeback in celebrity land, as the new do is above shoulder length.

The cut frames her face and the new dark hair colour compliments her skin and complexion – so she is SLAYING.

In a clip uploaded to Instagram, Jesy gave fans a quick look at her new style.

She captioned the video: "When you're feeling your new haircut."

Fans loved her new look and were quick to comment about how much they adored it.

"YAS QUEEN SLAY," commented one, as another was thinking of doing the same: "I think my locks are going." 

We love the new hair and we won't be surprised if people do decide to copy her and get the same cut.


Stacey Solomon was talking all things jungle yesterday, as she was giving an insight into the campsite to her Loose Women co-panellists.

As the 29-year-old dished the dirt, it was her hair that fans were totally taken by.  

Switching from blonde to brunette, Stacey looked divine as she debuted her new look on the daytime show.

Much like us, viewers were totally in love with her new hair and took to Twitter to say how gorge it is. 

"Loving @StaceySolomon new hair colour looks absolutely fabulous on #LooseWomen," said one.

"Haven’t watched @loosewomen for ages so I was quite surprised to see @StaceySolomon has gone brunette – looks lovely," added another. 

Stacey is currently adjusting to life without Joe Swash, as he is down under filming for I'm A Celebrity.

However, the presenter revealed that in his absences, he had made a "big mistake" as she was now in charge of the Christmas decorations.

Cue the unicorns and pink decor taking over their home – we love it.


We all remember Plan B, right?

The late noughties rapper who had a bunch of hits such as She Said and Prayin'?

Up to scratch? Well, he's looking very, very different these days.

The rapper hasn't been on the scene in five years and took some time off to concentrate on being a father.

But this week, he made his comeback in London and fans were totally shocked at his new look.

He actually looks like an entirely different man.

What most of you don't know is that Plan B, real name Ben Drew, is also an avid actor.

And that's his reason for losing weight and changing his body.

While filming for his movie The Sweeney back in 2012, Plan B said that his co-star Ray Winestone was the one to spark to change.

"We were talking about my character and how someone as young as me has got the part," he told The Sun.

"We were saying how I've got to be a man in his early thirties, super-smart, excels in exams, brilliant at sports and Ray looked me up and down and goes, 'Are you sure you're going to get yourself in good enough shape?'

"I thought right then and there, 'I'm going to do it'. That's the extra incentive I needed. I thought, 'I'll f**king show you, pal'."

And now, of course, Twitter is loving him:


Here at SHEmazing! HQ, we love a good celebrity transformation.

But while weight loss and hair dye can do A LOT for a person’s image, there’s nothing like a solid throwback to prove the strength of time’s transformative properties.

Yesterday, Blac Chyna took to Instagram to give fans a glimpse of “Young Chy” during her “tomboy” days, and it’s safe to say the girl in the photo looks nothing like the curvaceous reality star we’ve come to know.


Young Chy  I was a tomboy for the longest  !!!

While fans were quick to express their surprise at Chyna’s share, many commented on how much she used to look like her four-year-old son, King Cairo.

One follower wrote: “When you do a double take, thinking, kingy has had one hellavah growth spurt (sic).”  While another said: “I thought she Photoshopped her sons head on another body but look at the caption (sic).”

We wonder will Chyna’s next baby looks as much like her as King does.


It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since the tantastic stars of TOWIE first entered our lives and while the controversial cast have long been noted for their unique sense of style, some of the show’s stars seems to have changed a lot more than others since their 2010 debuts.

From slimmed down frames to more pronounced pouts, we take a look at the ever-changing appearances of some of Essex’s best known personalities.

Gemma Collins:


Back in 2011 Gemma Collins had dark brown hair, a full fringe and a tan which could only be called abnormally orange.  Since then Gemma has taken a slightly more subtle approach to the slap and has dyed her locks to her familiar blonde shade.  Despite continued speculation that she’s followed the likes of Charlotte Crosby and had her lips plumped, Gemma still denies using fillers.    


Amy Childs:

Since finding fame on The Only Way Is Essex and It’s All About Amy model Amy Childs has become quite the businesswoman.  But while Amy’s signature style has remained relatively constant over the years, the star’s physical appearance has changed as a result of cosmetic surgery.  The 26-year-old has openly admitted to having her boobs enhanced and her lips and cheeks filled, alterations which she now claims to regret.    


Chloe Sims:

Since joining the Essex crew in 2010, Chloe Sims has had a fair bit of work done.  Aside from giving her brunette do a blonde overhaul, Chloe has openly admitted to having a boob job, bum lift and fillers to alter her physical appearance. 


Lauren Goodger:

Lauren Goodger has made one of the most dramatic TOWIE transformations in recent years as not only has the star’s frame got slimmer, her lips now look bigger than ever before.  In January this year Lauren revealed she’d dropped four stone and five dress sizes after swapping yo-yo diets for a new workout regime.  Like her former co-star Gemma Collins, Lauren denies having her lips done and instead claims her new pout is the result of a lip plumper she bought at MAC. 


Lydia Bright:


While always a fan of feminine style, boutique owner Lydia Bright has pared back her look for the better.  While once a fan high-coverage foundation and frilly dresses, the star now favours a more natural-looking complexion which goes perfectly with her soft boho dress sense.


Sam Faiers:


Former glamour model Sam Faiers has ditched the blonde bombshell look she once sported in Essex in favour of a much subtler brunette style.  The mother of one now rocks dark roots and a healthy glow as she focuses her attention on baby Paul.

Model Amber Rose is as well known for her curvaceous figure and platinum buzz cut as she is for her outspoken personality, so when one of those physical features is removed she’s bound to look a whole lot different.

The 32-year-old star debuted a whole new look on her Instagram account last night when shared two photos of herself wearing a long brunette wig, pinned back into a 60’s style up-do.

The mother of one seemed to use coloured contact lenses and a set of false lashes to complete the transformation.

Comments on the posts were mixed as Amber’s followers struggled to recognise the TV host.  Some fans praised Amber for looking like Whitney Houston in the pics, while others commented “Omg no no no”.

We've seen a lot of incredible make-up transformations lately, but few are quite as mesmerising (or disturbing) as watching a five-year-old boy turn into Drake.

French-born make-up artist Magali Beauvue has been receiving a lot of attention this week after she successfully managed to transform one of her client's sons into the bearded R&B star using a powerful combination of extreme contouring and, well, beard painting.

Last weekend, Magali – who has been based in the Caribbean for the last eight years – posted a video to her Instagram account in which she shows her followers how she made bare-faced schoolboy Dylane look like the star.

Naturally enough the video has gone mega-viral with Dylane even being dubbed 'Lil' Drake'.

Speaking of the clip, Magali told Complex: "Dylane had so much fun doing it… he was looking at himself in the mirror and was saying 'Oh I really look like Drake now'."

"Something about [Drake] makes him seem so friendly despite his notoriety."

"People love him… that's why 'Little Drake' gets so much love."


Many actors have been known to change their entire body for a movie role – we're looking at you, Renee Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey – but this has to be the most extreme transformation we've seen yet.

Chris is the main star in Ron Howard's upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea, based on a true story that inspired Herman Melville's classic, Moby Dick

The 32-year-old plays a sailor who gets shipwrecked for almost three months after a whale hits his ship… and as you can see Chris had to change his body for the role, a lot

On Saturday the actor shared a photo on Instagram of what he looked like when he was filming the movie.


Just tried a new diet/training program called "Lost At Sea". Wouldn't recommend it.. #IntheHeartoftheSea

"Just tried a new diet/training program called 'Lost At Sea'," Chris said, joking about his weight loss. "Wouldn't recommend it."

Don't ever say Chris doesn't commit to his roles!



Good aul Tay Tay has played a blinder this year. Not only has she taken on music industry bigwigs, performed with some of the biggest acts in music and had Ryans Adams cover her 1989 album in its entirety (that has gotta earn her some hipster street cred), but she also had a lawsuit against her dropped with the judge quoting her OWN LYRICS in the closing statements. Respect. 

We know this girl is making some serious waves in the music industry but we have also closely followed her style and boy has her hair been on quite the journey. 

Join us as we chart Tay's transformation from doe eyed country star to bona fide pop royalty by looking at those oh so important hair moments. 



A fresh faced 12 year old, Taylor wore her blonde locks in their natural waves. 



Ooh girl, work that country chic. It's easy to forget sometimes where Taylor come from, but the cowboy hat and purple velvet make it pretty clear. Taylor had her hair grown long with classic layers framing her face and exuding her youth. 



At 14, Taylor moves to Nashville to begin her singing career as a country star. With a penchant for satin, velvet and denim, the young singer keeps her hair natural and tousled. 



Tay becomes the youngest artist ever to sign to the Sony record label and releases her debut album at 16. She starts to refine her look to match her budding popstar status by defining her luscious curls and smoothening the hair. 



The red lip and the stripped back style: here is a taste of what would become the Taylor that we know and love! She was still rocking her curls au natural and letting them lightly frame the face. 



Gaining worldwide momentum now, Taylor rocks up to the 2008 MTV VMA's still sporting those trademark curls. 



And game changer! Taylor opts for a refined look by sweeping her curls in a low chignon style, side bun. Gorgeous. 



And BAM. Goodbye curls. Taylor dramatically changes up her look to coincide with the release of her third album, Speak Now. She embraces a dramatic fringe and straightens out her curls into a sleek, layered style. 



They may not be her natural curls, but Taylor still liked to whip out soft waves for special occasions such as the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. She is finally starting to embrace that dramatic lip we love so much.



The Red album release, the red lip, the fringe. There's our Taylor. 



Killin it, Swifty. 



In a blink and you'll miss it moment, Taylor has chopped off her hair, dropped the biggest album of the year, 1989, and releases hit single, Shake it Off. We were definitely obsessed with her choppy, shoulder length bob. 



And in 2015, Tay pretty much took over the world. Still sporting her chic bob, she now likes to wear her fringe swept over to one side. We love it… PLEASE let us be in your #squad, Tay. 


Crowned as Slimming World's Woman Of The Year 2015, Cheryl Blythe defied medical advice to undergo weight loss surgery – in favour of simply adopting a healthier lifestyle. 

The 33-year-old’s unhealthy lifestyle included skipping breakfast and feasting on her food of choice: a burger topped with doner kebab meat.

She regularly gorged on large chocolate bars, baguettes and cheesy chips – and would polish off a full pack of biscuits as a snack.

The mother-of-two was advised by doctors that she should consider a gastric band and that if she did not lose weight, she would be dead or at least confined to a wheelchair by aged 45.

On a day out with friends, Cheryl, who lives in Essex, realised just how much her weight affected her daily life.

Cheryl has now revealed: “My weight affected everything we did that day — my back was so painful, we had to keep stopping when we were walking so I could catch my breath, I couldn’t fit in some chairs because they were too small, and I felt like everyone was staring at me the whole time.”

Cheryl pinpoints her teenage pregnancy as the catalyst for her radical weight gain, which ballooned throughout her 20s.

“I knew my health wasn’t good and the things I heard from my doctor scared me, but I always prioritised other people.”

Following her transformation, Cheryl has lost 14st 3lb, reducing her weight from 24st 3lb to an amazing 10st.

And, as listed below, Ms  Blythe began her epic weight loss journey by swapping foods loaded with carbs and sugar with home cooked meals and sensible snacks…



  • Breakfast – nothing.
  • Lunch – half a baguette filled with chicken and mayonnaise, a big bag of crisps and four chocolate bars.
  • Dinner – half-pounder cheese burger with doner meat on top and a portion of cheesy chips.
  • Snacks – large chocolate bars, share-size bags of crisps and whole packs of biscuits.


  • Breakfast – grilled lean bacon (visible fat removed), tomatoes and mushrooms with two poached eggs.
  • Lunch – jacket potato topped with home-made chilli con carne.
  • Dinner – home-made spaghetti Bolognese topped with 40g grated reduced-fat Cheddar cheese.
  • Snacks – fresh fruit, fat-free yoghurts, a small chocolate bar and an individual-sized bag of Walker's Quavers.



A New Zealand fitness blogger was blasted across social media earlier this summer when she posted photos of her incredible 81 Kg weight loss. Many people online accused her of lying and claimed that her transformation photographs were fake. 

Simone Anderson had started to track her weight-loss journey on Instagram 11 months ago and had never expected to be accused of lying about her journey. Despite her candid approach to social media, she was accused of being a liar and faking her weight loss in almost every post she shared.


So glad I took so many progress shots along the way, love looking back over them!

"I promised from day one that what I was sharing with people would be the honest journey, and it would be the ups, the downs, the goods and the bads," she told People magazine. 

For her, that meant showing people what it was really like to lose all of that weight. When she did, the reaction she received was absolutely huge:

"I needed to show that yes, I do have loose skin, and it's actually a side effect of something I am proud of. Obviously, I can't wait for it to be gone, but it's not something I'm ashamed of or embarrassed of."

The 24 year old freelance make-up artist has recently undergone surgery in order to remove the excess skin and have her tummy tucked and breasts lifted. 

Her surgeon also told the magazine: "No amount of diet or exercise is going to get rid of that loose skin. It’s going to be a challenging surgery, but I think it’s going to turn out great."

Simone had started a crowd funding page in order to help raise the money she needed for her surgery. The page is still live and at the moment it appears that she is still almost €10,000 away from her target. She travelled to Arizona to unergone the eight hour procedure and despite looking at six months of recovering is feeling very upbeat:
