Hailey Baldwin is making her marriage to Justin Bieber Instagram official! On Friday, the 21-year-old model changed her username to @haileybieber, with her full name reading Hailey Rhode Bieber. At the moment, her Twitter and Facebook accounts still read Hailey Baldwin. The Instagram name change comes just a day after Hailey was spotted sporting a custom “Bieber” jean jacket at Levi’s Time Square opening party in New York City.
Hailey and Justin first rekindled their romance in June before tying the knot in September at a courthouse in NYC. Though they were initially mum about their wedding ceremony, they eventually confirmed their marriage to a fan in October. See some of Mr. and Mrs. Bieber’s cutest moments together ahead.
The royal fab four stepped out for a fun date night, and you probably missed it. On Thursday, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle got all dolled up as they attended the Royal Foundation Dinner at Victoria House in London. British singer Tom Walker, who performed during the event, shared a sweet photo with the royals, writing, “I had the absolute honour of performing for and meeting The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge & The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for the annual @kensingtonroyal #RoyalFoundation dinner last night.” British radio presenter Anita Rani also shared a cute photo of her with Meghan and Harry, adding that they chatted about “weddings and feminism.”
The outing comes just a day after the couples attended Prince Charles’s 70th birthday bash at Buckingham Palace. While the royal family didn’t share any photos of the four inside the event, Kate and Meghan looked absolutely glamorous as they were pictured arriving in their cars. Despite reports that Meghan and Harry are distancing themselves from Kate and Will, the four royals have been stepping out together a lot lately, and we can’t get enough.

Warning: Some light spoilers for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald are down there.
When it comes to the Fantastic Beasts franchise, some of the most exciting moments come from the connections to the Harry Potter books. Luckily for us diehard fans, The Crimes of Grindelwald delivers a hefty dose of nostalgia. This movie has everything: we’ve got Voldemort’s dear Nagini, a young professor McGonagall, and even a vaguely gay Dumbledore. But that’s not all! There’s another character in the film that hearkens all the way back to the very first book: Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone. It’s Nicolas Flamel!
If you don’t quite recall the significance of the character, it’s because Nicolas Flamel is only mentioned in passing during the book. During one scene, Hermione points out a book passage for Harry and Ron to read:
“The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making the Philosopher’s Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers. The Stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal.
There have been many reports of the Philosopher’s Stone over the centuries, but the only Stone currently in existence belongs to Mr. Nicolas Flamel, the noted alchemist and opera-lover. Mr Flamel, who celebrated his six hundred and sixty-fifth birthday last year, enjoys a quiet life in Devon with his wife, Perenelle (six hundred and fifty-eight).
As you might remember, Hogwarts is keeping the Stone safe in the first book, tucked away under lock and key behind a series of puzzles. With the help of Professor Quirrell, Voldemort attempts to get his hands on the Stone. Obviously he’s hoping to attain life everlasting. As we all know by now, Harry and co. nip that plan right in the bud. Though Flamel is alive in the year the book is set, we never see him in the flesh. That’s where Fantastic Beasts comes in.
At the very beginning of the film, Dumbledore tells Newt of a safe house in Paris. It turns out the be the actual house of Flamel! We discover this when Jacob has a hilarious run-in with the alchemist, who reveals he’s pretty old and frail. Nicolas is pretty instrumental, even in his small role. He helps Jacob figure out where to find Queenie, and even participates in that epic final spell that defeats Grindelwald’s fire dragons. We even catch a glimpse of the Stone itself, tucked away safely in Flamel’s safe. Talk about a fun cameo.
As I mentioned, Flamel continues to live his very long life until the end of the first book. With the Stone completely destroyed, he and his wife will finally be laid to rest. “They have enough Elixir stored to set their affairs in order and then, yes, they will die,” Dumbledore tells Harry. “To one as young as you, I’m sure it seems incredible, but to Nicolas and Perenelle, it really is like going to bed after a very, very long day.” He then says, “You know, the Stone was really not such a wonderful thing. As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all – the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things which are worst for them.” Ugh, his mind!
Dubbed “Incompiuto Pt. 1,” Off-White™ Pre-Fall 2019 draws inspiration from Alterazioni Video’s work of the same name. It draws upon 10 years of research to explore unfinished public works in Italy, presenting the incomplete designs as a new form of architecture. In line with these lofty conceits, the clothing collection is informed by earthy camouflage, faded prints and generous cuts.
Slouchy trousers aid to anchor a variety of the colorful looks, which serve up shiny metallics alongside contemporary sportswear revisions, like the trim, striped puffer jackets and cream tracksuits. Blurry camouflage and tie-dye afflicts multi-pocketed GORE-TEX layers and cargo pants alike, meshing with revamped Western staples like washed-out jeans, relaxed open-collar shirts and big belt buckles. Further adventurous designs include comfy knits patterned with the brand’s signature stripe logo, gargantuan suiting and knee-length parkas, undercutting the billowy designs with sharp eyewear and plush leather bags.
The goods won’t hit Off-White™’s web store for some time, but stay tuned for updated release info. Furthermore, the artists behind Alterazioni Video will offer direction for the campaign and create an installation for the brand’s January show in Paris.
Most recently, the brand introduced a $465 USD beach towel.

Katy Perry is hands down one of the sexiest, most daring celebrities out there.

26-year-old Gunner Stahl is an undisputed heavyweight in the world of celebrity photography. Having already shot everyone from Pharrell to Gucci Mane, Stahl has launched a new web store to host prints of his photographs and book, along with some surprises.
Though Stahl already operated a Bigcartel site for his prints, the new store offers a different variety of prints and goods. Along with stark shots of Tyler, The Creator and Metro Boomin, fans can grab gear from Stahl’s new clothing line: Portraits.
The selection ranges from “I DON’T NEED A PRESS PASS” hoodies to a plastic cup emblazoned with collection’s name. Those with deeper pockets can snatch even bigger prizes, however: $15,000 USD will garner a Stahl-shot graduation photo set, while $99,999 USD (likely a placeholder number for now) will nab you either a used Yashica T4 camera used by Stahl, or a complete photo shoot, travel and production included.
Check out the selection on Gunner Stahl’s web store.
In recognition of Takashi Murakami‘s immense contributions to the world of art, The Shoe Surgeon gifted the Japanese creative a pair of these bespoke Off-White™ Air Jordan 1 “Lux” Flower sneakers. Crafted from python skin reimagined in 12 different hues, the sneaker sports its usual deconstructed detailing, including a stitched-on Swoosh and bold-face verbiage on the midsole. Instead of the usual “AIR” text, however, the sneaker reads “FLOWER,” in deference to Murakami’s signature flower pillows.
For those not lucky enough to be gifted a pair, The Short Surgeon’s website will offer a limited run of the shoe on November 17.
Meanwhile, the other recipient of the bespoke “Lux” Flower shoe, J Balvin, recently received a bespoke Murakami chain courtesy of Ben Baller.
