Hot of the runways comes haute couture.

The City of Lights is teeming with celebrities, models and designers right now, as Paris Fashion Week heats up. Arguably the most fashion-forward event of the year, the days dedicated to couture are not only a chance for brands to show their most crafted, made-to-order creations, but it’s an opportunity for regular folk like us to see what potential designs might make to the red carpet. Out of the feathery, architectural pieces sent down the Chanel runway by Karl Lagerfeld, which will resonate? (We’re calling it: Kaia Gerber’s boots.) Will we see Bella Hadid not only rock Alexandre Vauthier down the catwalk but also at Cannes? (We have before.) Will we spot some of these dresses come Oscars? Probably. 

Besides the amazing celebrity insight we can glean from this high-fashion event, please take a moment to fully take in the actual ensembles. Each look was specially made in an atelier, created by the most clothes-minded people in the world—they all are beautiful, but there are some looks that stand out above the rest.

He also shared, “Also… I prefer pie, I think.”

In response to Justin’s question, Dylan replied, “The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake).”

Justin recently attended the 2018 Golden Globes wearing a Time’s Up pin. He posted a photo of himself and Jessica Biel before the ceremony on Jan. 7 with the caption, “Here we come!! And DAMN, my wife is hot! #TIMESUP #whywewearblack.”

Justin also showed his support for the Time’s Up movement with an Instagram post on Jan. 1 that read, “No more accepting sexual harassment and inequality at work as normal. It’s NOT normal. #TIMESUP – Link up top in bio.”

The “Supplies” singer has yet to respond to Dylan’s tweet, but he did respond to another Twitter user’s explanation of the saying.

“it’s actually, you can’t have your cake & eat it too. Meaning you can’t have 2 good things at once. If you eat it you don’t have it anymore!” @ggianaaddeliaa wrote.

Justin replied, “THANK YOU! Day changed. #StillPieOverCake.”

‘N Sync Reunion at the Super Bowl? Joey Fatone Says to Kiss That Wish ”Bye, Bye, Bye”

'N Sync, MTV Video Music Awards

Kevin Mazur/WireImage for MTV

‘N Sync just keeps tearin’ up our heart! Joey Fatone has once and for all squashed speculation that the early 2000s boy band would join Justin Timberlake at the 2018 Super Bowl. 

The singer was stopped by TMZ during a recent outing in Los Angeles, and was asked to respond to rumors that a ‘N Sync reunion would take place during the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. As he put it, “I’m here right now. If I was doing something, I’d be at rehearsals right now… There’s your proof. Nothing.”

“And there’s nothing wrong with that!” Fatone added. “S–t, he’s doing his thing.”

Fans have been clamoring for Timblerlake, Fatone, Lance BassJC Chasezand Chris Kirkpatrick to get back in sync ever since their last performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.  

‘N Sync previously performed at the 2001 Super Bowl halftime show alongside Britney SpearsAerosmithMary J. Blige and Nelly. And who could forget the 2004 spectacle, when J.T. accidentally exposed Janet Jackson‘s bare breast in a move that would go down in pop culture infamy? 

Speaking of Jackson and other artists letting Timberlake shine solo, E! News previously reported that the world-famous songstress would not return to the Super Bowl stage with Timberlake. 

Our insider explained at the time, “Justin will be playing his old stuff during his Super Bowl performance. He plans to perform the ‘classic J.T.’ stuff. Justin’s team has really been pushing to lock in this deal and he’s very excited for the opportunity.”

Are you disappointed by the news that an ‘N Sync Super Bowl reunion won’t happen after all? Let us know in the comments! 

Super Bowl LII will air on Sunday, Feb. 4 from the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.

Natalia Dyer’s Facialist Shares a Bedtime Step You May Be Missing

ESC: Natalia Dyer

When it comes to red carpet beauty, skin is everything.

Cue celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas, founder of the Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection. The skin-care pro’s salon is a refuge for Hollywood’s A-list, promising bright, hydrated skin prior to any event. For example, prior to the 2018 SAG Awards, Joanna prepped Natalia Dyer, Mandy Moore , Elisabeth Moss, Greta Gerwig, Zoe Kazan and Betty Giplin, using her new Supernova Facial, which includes an aqua peel, microcurrent, medical-grade collagen mask, cryotherapy and vitamin-spiked oxygen. Then, she completed a head-to-toe detox peel on each of the stars to ensure that any revealed skin would glisten.

The salon offers the Supernova Facial and Full Body Detox to everyone—not just celebs. However, with the $375 facial and $300 peel, flawless skin requires an investment. 

Lucky for us, the sought-after skin-care expert revealed tips for getting red carpet ready from the comfort of your home. Check out her tips below!

Exfoliate once a week during the winter, and twice a week during the summer. 
How often you exfoliate depends on your skin type and the season: “[During] Winter, you should exfoliate once a week since your skin is more sensitive,” she told E! News. “In summer, exfoliate twice a week. My favorite exfoliation is to use a product that has physical and chemical exfoliation properties. Something that has a bit of a scrub and something that has lactic.”

Sleep in your mask the night before a big event.
I encourage my celebrity clients to sleep in my Exfoliating Mask the night before a red carpet event. It evens out pigment, takes down inflammation, and after a good night’s sleep in it, you wake up fresh faced like you’ve just had a facial!”

Especially if you have acne.
I have some actress clients who break out from nerves. It happens before every red carpet event, and this mask makes them flat enough that you can cover them with makeup.”

If you’re traveling, rehydrate your skin after you get off of the plane.
Extreme dryness is the most common issue, because my actresses travel so much and planes suck the life out of your skin,” she revealed. “I do a very gentle exfoliation and then do a series of masks to infuse the skin with hydration, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins to make the skin come alive again.”

Roll your way to radiant skin with a jade roller.
You can pop it into the fridge to cool it and it will help a lot to depuff and increase circulation.”

Now, you’re ready for your red carpet debut!

Hoda Kotb Shares Adorable Video of Baby Haley Taking Her First Steps

Haley Joy Kotb is growing up! 

Today anchor Hoda Kotb stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show with a sweet update on her almost 1-year-old daughter, who she adopted in February 2017. Turns out Haley is hitting all her milestones and just recently started walking! 

Lucky for fans, Hoda came prepared with a video of the precious toddler taking some of her first steps. As the TV personality put it, “One day, seriously, she took a nap, woke up and started walking. I didn’t even know when it happened or how it happened. She was like, ‘Ok, bye!'”

“And then that was it,” Kotb, 53, added. “She was just toddling around. They take a nap, they wake up and the Frankenstein walk starts!”

Hoda is the first to admit that motherhood has completely transformed her outlook on life, telling Ellen DeGenres that little Haley “changed everything.” She shared, “I would take my worst day, the day when everything’s falling apart since Haley, over my favorite day before.”

The proud mama also recalled the moment she brought up exploring adoption with boyfriend Joel Schiffman and the reaction that made her realize she had “chosen the right man.” 

From Hoda’s perspective, “I was 52 and I had thought about having kids for a long, long time.” She told Schiffman to “take a day, take a week, take some time” before answering, but as Kotb explained, “He looked at me and he said, ‘I don’t need a day.’ Right then. I knew I had chosen the right man.” And before the couple knew it, Haley was theirs forever! 

When Ellen asked if wedding bells are in Hoda and Joel’s future, she responded, “Maybe, we might. I feel like everything’s great. He’s Haley’s dad. I’m Haley’s mom. We’re together. I feel like there’s not a rush other than we’re old, and we probably, if we’re going to do it, we might as well do it. But I think it’s fun like this. I don’t mind it… We’re enjoying our lives. Yeah, I think we’re good this way.”

Grey’s Anatomy Isn’t Finished With Kim Raver Just Yet, Books Former Star for Another Season 14 Arc

Kim Raver, Grey's Anatomy

ABC

We haven’t seen the last of Teddy Altman.

E! News has confirmed that Grey’s Anatomy is bringing back former star Kim Raver for a second batch of episodes this season, following her three-episode arc at the start of season 14. The exact amount of episodes she’ll be returning for remains to be seen, but there’s a pretty good chance she’ll be back to follow-up on the flirting that went down between her and her former flame, the single-and-ready-to-mingle Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd). 

After departing the series at the end of season eight, Raver was brought back into the mix thanks to the discovery that Owen’s presumed-dead sister Megan (Abigail Spencer) wasn’t actually deceased. As Owen brought Megan to Grey Sloan Memorial for the treatment she needed, Teddy stuck around for a bit to offer him some support.

TVLine first reported the news of Raver’s return season 14 engagement.

While it remains to be seen whether or not there’s any rekindling of Teddy and Owen’s old romance, McKidd did recently admit to E! News that he’s looking forward to seeing the long-suffering doc have a little bit of fun now that his fraught marriage with Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) is officially over. 

“I think he’s going to have some fun finally. He’s always chased this dream of being a father and having a child and having a family unit and I think his sister coming back, and all the guilt he carried with him for so many years, has all been lifted,” McKidd told us. “So suddenly he’s going, ‘Wait a minute. I can actually just enjoy myself a little bit and smell the roses and  enjoy life’ instead of always chasing this dream of a family. So I think it’s been to play Owen’s lighter side and see him be kind of single because he’s had a rough road.”

Are you looking forward to more Teddy? Hoping that she and Owen give their romance another chance? Sound off in the comments below!

Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Danielle Staub Is Officially Done With Dolores Catania & Her Accusations in This Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Preview

If you thought Teresa Giudice coming face-to-face with Kim D would deliver all the fireworks in the conclusion of The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s season eight reunion special, may we remind you that Danielle Staub is also in the house?

In this sneak peek of the hour, exclusive to E! News, the OG star of the franchise’s Garden State installment, back this season as an official Friend of the Housewives, reignites her feud with Dolores Catania when host Andy Cohen brings up Dolores’ earlier accusations of drug use. Suffice to say, Dolores’ comments don’t sit well with Danielle.

“Oh no, I didn’t have any proof, but something’s not right,” Dolores tells Andy, while Danielle shakes her head in disbelief. “She just seems off.”

When Melissa Gorga steps in to say that she doesn’t like accusations that can’t be proven, Dolores doubles down. “I’m not saying she’s doing 10 kilos in the bathroom,” she continues. “There’s just something not right about her and I thought maybe Xanax or something.”

“What are you talking about? Are you serious right now? Oh, stop it,” Danielle replies, defending herself. “I have never done any such thing. You point your finger at me, you get in my face, you bark at me. I get it, you don’t like me. But shut the f–k up and stop calling my names.”

Naturally, that doesn’t sit too well with Dolores. “Don’t tell me to shut up, you skank,” she lobs back. And though you can probably guess, if you want to see how well that sits with Danielle, you’re going to have to check out the video above!

Elsewhere in the episode, Teresa makes an accusation of her own, claiming that Kim D is a Madame, and the entire cast is forced to revisit their Italy trip, where Margaret Joseph‘s mention of Hitler made her Siggy Flicker‘s bitter enemy and fractured the group for good.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s two-part reunion special concludes on Wednesday, Jan. 24 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

The Rise of Iris West and Candice Patton: How The Flash’s Leading Lady Is Taking Charge On and Off Screen

The Flash‘s Iris West (Candice Patton) is not a superhero, a scientist, or a cop, but she is—finally—their boss.  

The role of a superhero’s girlfriend has always been a difficult one for movies and TV to get right, and for its first few seasons, the CW’s The Flash often shared that struggle. But then season four came around, and not only was the show lighter, funnier, somehow even quicker, but it had also found a role for Iris that was more than damsel in distress or her frequent job of hanging out in STAR Labs and worrying—and it wasn’t just an upgrade from superhero’s girlfriend to superhero’s wife.

When Barry (Grant Gustin) sacrificed himself to the speedforce at the end of season three, Iris made the jump from being about to die to being in charge. She took control of Team Flash in the absence of the Flash, and when the hero (and her fiancé) returned, she kept the job. And while we’re all still waiting for Iris to get back to her dream (and future) job as a reporter, this is the gig it feels like she always should have had.

“She had to step into that position, but I don’t think it was anything she was planning to do,” Patton tells E! News of the character’s evolution. “She didn’t know when [Barry] was going to come back, and Iris just kind of stepped up and became the team leader to kind of keep everyone together and keep everyone moving. It’s a position she ended up being really great at, and lucky for her, the rest of the team embraced her in that role.”

While this funny boss Iris is actually ideal, anything would have been better for her than what she went through in season three, when Savitar (also known as alternate future Barry) killed her in the future.

Barry witnessed this future death, and then spent a season making rash decisions in an effort to save Iris’ life. Iris spent a season making plans for both a wedding and her will, all while watching Barry spin a little out of control in his efforts to save her. It was some incredible dramatic work from Grant Gustin and especially Candice Patton, but it was often exhausting to watch, and to do, according to Patton.

“I mean, all that stuff is fun to play and I ended up getting a Saturn award for that season, but it was exhausting,” she says. “Just a lot of emotional stuff. I like being the leader.”

Patton also liked Iris as a reporter, but she understands the constraints of the show.

“In the comic books, she is a reporter, and that’s kind of how we started on the show, and I think it’s ultimately how we should have continued,” she says. “But for whatever reason I think it was complicated to integrate the two storylines—the STAR Labs side of things and the ‘Iris being a reporter’ side of things. It was easier, I think, to have us all in STAR Labs, and it took a while for us to find a place for Iris to have agency.”

“I think she should go back to being a reporter at some point,” she continues, acknowledging that we’ve seen that future article written by Iris West-Allen. “So we’ll see. I mean, Iris has done a lot. She was a barista, a reporter, and a leader at STAR Labs. She’s got an impressive resumé.”

When you think about Iris as a character, and when you ask Patton what the character’s strengths are, it does seem strange that it took so long to find Iris her place in STAR Labs.

“I mean everyone is so cerebral. Iris is more heart,” Patton says. “She’s good at rallying and cheerleading everyone and keeping everyone focused on moving forward and being a team. I mean she really is, in a lot of ways, a coach for a lot of people. She keeps the morale together and she encourages a lot of the team members.”

On The Flash and across the whole of the Arrowverse (including Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow), Iris is one of the few main characters without a superpower or super-skill. She’s also not a scientist, or a cop with a licensed gun like her dad, and she’s not a skilled archer like Arrow‘s Oliver or Diggle. She’s also not a computer expert like Felicity, and she doesn’t have a particularly fancy gun. Of every hero across the four shows, she’s probably the most like a regular person, and the importance of the fact that she’s so important—and not just as personal motivation for other characters—to the success of Team Flash can’t be oversold.  

“I mean, it’s great to have smart people, but if they can’t get along or remember why they’re there doing it, it’s going to be difficult,” Patton says.

Iris has been particularly effective at keeping the Flash himself from falling into annoying dude superhero tropes, like believing he that he not only could do everything on his own, but that he had to, for noble reasons. Barry Allen (mostly) no longer makes life-altering decisions by himself, and he’s no longer the only hero making decisions at all. 

“I think it’s important that the leading lady of the Flash not always be captured, and I think it’s important to see her be the hero of her own story,” Patton says. “A lot of times she takes the reigns in trying to protect herself and to protect others and I think that’s what makes Iris so special. And we’ll see even more of that later in the season how Iris steps up and becomes a superhero to the team in her own way.”

Off camera, Patton herself has also been stepping up in recent months, making her voice heard more than ever before and even starting a collective for female empowerment, all inspired by the fans she’s met through The Flash.

“I think the more and more I meet fans and realize the impact this kind of show has on people across the world, I feel empowered and I feel responsible to speak up and speak out for people who may not have as big of a platform or as big of a voice as I have,” she says. “And I think even in our political climate, I think it requires all of us, whether you have a platform or not, to speak up and to not be afraid of saying what is good and what is right. So you know, even if it’s an unpopular opinion, I’m no longer going to be quiet about things that I feel are important and are right.”

Around the same time that a new era of The Flash arrived, a reckoning had arrived in Hollywood, starting with sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein and continuing with names coming out on a near-weekly basis, even hitting the Arrowverse itself. Co-creator and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who worked primarily on Supergirl and The Flash, was fired after being accused of sexual harassment by 19 people in a report by Variety.

Right around the time that those reports surfaced, Patton and Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz launched the collective Shethority, which was born out of a conversation during a hike in Vancouver.

“We were just talking about these conventions we go on a lot, and you know, we meet fans, we sign autographs, we take pictures, and we go home,” Patton explains. “A lot of our fans are young, they’re women, they’re women of color, and we don’t really get to have a dialogue with them in that medium at a convention. It’s two minutes and they’re ushered on and the next fan comes up. And we saw a desire from them to want to talk about seeing us on screen and the importance of being a woman and empowerment, so we wanted to create a place for young girls, women, and boys to speak on female empowerment.”

Patton says they started with videos of themselves talking about “how we deal with certain issues as women in the workplace and other stuff,” encouraging fans to send in their own videos of what they’re dealing with in order to create “a safe space online where we can all have a dialogue about female empowerment.”

The collective has already started to evolve, and Patton has high hopes for what it could become.

“I hope it’s a huge nonprofit,” she says. “I see mentorship programs where women in successful careers, whether it be film or TV or doctors or lawyers or people in STEM, reaching out to some of these young girls and being able to mentor them through Facetime or emails or short texts.”

There are also plans to incorporate a book club and various tools that Patton and Lotz have found useful in their careers, like meditation, yoga, and other ways to stay “calm and focused.”

“We have so many ideas, it’s just focusing them and getting each one done at a time, and we’d love to work with other organizations like Time’s Up,” Patton says. “I think, you know, it could be a really powerful force for a lot of young women in the world.”

Nearly the entire female cast of the CW’s DC TV shows have gotten involved—including Supergirl‘s Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh, Arrow‘s Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy, and Juliana Harkavy, The Flash‘s Danielle Panabaker, and Legends of Tomorrow‘s Maisie R. Sellers and Tala Ashe—creating a kind of united front across all four shows, which Patton says has “totally” changed the vibe on set.

“I think female relationships are different on set. I think we stand up for each other a little more. We have each other’s backs. We encourage each other’s opinions in male-dominated environments because we know how difficult it can be and how silenced we can be often,” she explains. “It’s interesting—I think it’s a really positive thing to know that we all have this gang of girls kind of looking out for each other and sharing information and speaking up about what we’re going through, whether it’s in the workplace or at home.”

It feels especially powerful to see not only a group of actresses, but a group of actresses who play superheroes of all kinds, banding together to support each other and their fans, but Patton says it’s really about all women of all kinds, all over the world.

“It’s a weird time where I think this movement just kind of happened naturally, I think, for all women in the industry, and I think it started a dialogue between women,” she says. “We’re no longer afraid, and I think in these private conversations we’re having with each other, we’re realizing that staying silent is what keeps us marginalized. So the more that we have a dialogue about what we’re going through, the more I realize that we’re in this together, and we are stronger together. And so we, Caity and I and some of the other girls in the DC TV universe want to create a space for young women to feel that empowerment too—that we have their back, that their voice matters, and they have a space to speak up and speak out.”

As for the future of the movement and the industry, Patton says she hopes this is a permanent change.

“I see more women in positions of power, more female directors, more female writers, more female producers, heads of studios. I think when you have diverse people in areas of power, that is reflective of the work that you see in television and film. I think people are tired of seeing women playing just the love interest to a man, are tired of seeing them assaulted in films and TV. I think the results of this hopefully will be great storytelling for women.”

Whatever happens, Patton says she’s on board for the long haul.

“I’ll continue hopefully fighting and being a part of that change,” she says. “I think like any current, you can’t stop it once it’s started.”

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.

WAGS Atlanta’s Andre and Niche Caldwell Join Kaylin and Jair Jurrjens for an American Ninja Warrior-Themed Double Date

Do Niche Caldwell and Andre Caldwell double as a secret ninja couple? Kaylin Jurrjens sure seems to think so.

In this clip from Wednesday’s WAGS Atlanta, the Caldwell’s join Kaylin and Jair Jurrjens for an American Ninja Warrior-inspired double date.

After gliding through the course like a pro, Kaylin was convinced that the Caldwells have been practicing.

“Niche and Andre totally have a secret life as a secret ninja couple. They do this in their off time, I’m convinced,” Kaylin insisted.

Not a fan of exercise, Kaylin was unsure she could complete the course. “Exercise for me is when I’m running when there’s a sale,” the WAG said.

Kaylin got through it though with a few pageant inspired moves of course.

Watch the couples try their hand at the obstacle course in the LOL clip above.

Kate Middleton Champions for Children’s Mental Health With New School Website

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is lending her voice to a cause closest to her heart. 

The expectant royal arrived to the Green Junior School in London on Tuesday with a special goal: to launch the Heads Together Mentally Healthy Schools website. As a longtime advocate for national mental health resources for all ages, Middleton has worked with her Royal Foundation to develop the primary school online portal.

While the site is starting as a trial for 50 schools, the plan is to make the website widely available to every primary school in the United Kingdom this year. The site is broken up into four categories, including teaching resources, risks and protective factors, mental health needs and overall approach for school leaders.

“I see time and time again that there is so much to be gained from talking of mental health and taking the mental health of our children as seriously as we do their physical health.
When we intervene early in life, we help avoid problems that are much more challenging to address in adulthood,” Middleton said as she delivered her speech. “My own commitment is to the youngest and most vulnerable in their early years – babies, toddlers and school-children—and to support all those who care for them.”

The future mom of three turned her focus to teachers, whom she believes are vital to supporting children’s mental health. “You see our children as they grow, learn and play, as they build their social skills that will make the difference to their futures. You are uniquely placed to help children speak out about their mental and emotional challenges, and direct parents and carers to the right support,” she continued. “I am all too aware, however, of how much we ask teachers to take on. Teachers want to help, but don’t have the time to go hunting for the best information and advice out there. You need resources you can trust. And you need to have easy access to them at all times. That is what this pilot is all about.”

As the speech came to a close, Middleton made a request. “Please let us know what works, what doesn’t, and what else you would like to see,” she urged. “This project has been collaboration from day one. It will only succeed if we continue to work together.”
