Designer,Mai Atafo on the cover of Blanck Magazine


Renowned Nigerian fashion designer Mai Atafo smoulders on the cover of Blanck magazine. Mai discussed with Editor-in-Chief Franka Chiedu on staying relevant in the industry;
“Staying relevant is beyond making clothes -you must also be consistent and not sit on your laurels. In fashion, it is one thing for you to create amazing work but it's another for people to applaud the work that you have done. It is not about you but always about them; the customers -the people that you need to satisfy as you're only as good as the people that buy into you.”

Vanessa Hudgens sizzle for Women's Health magazine


Actress Vanessa Hudgens showed off her abs on the December issue of Women's Health where she talked about her future plans,her relationship with Austin Butler and fitness. She said;“I want to get married, travel, then have kids -- probably in my late 30s,” "Everyone’s clock is different."

Speaking on her seven year relationship with actor,Austin Butler,she said;
We both respect, trust, and admire each other," "It’s so solid now because I feel strong as an independent woman. I am very self-reliant, but it’s nice to have a best friend you can share victories with as well as losses.”

On her insecurities and fitness routine. she said;

“We were getting ready to go on the second leg of our tour, and it had been only two or three months, but the costume would not fit over my butt,” she recalls. “So I had to pull it on over my head, and then it wouldn’t zip up all the way, and I was like, ‛What do you mean I can’t eat Hot Cheetos and rice and beef jerky every day?’ So I had to start making changes at an early age.”

“When I do a scene that requires me to not have a lot of clothes on, I definitely get very strict with myself and cut sugar and carbs," she adds.

“Because I’m very petite, I’ve always felt that women who are taller are smarter and more powerful,” she admits. “I would feel less than because of my size. I see how women who are 5′9″ walk into a room, and I am so attracted to the space they take up. But then I started to realize that you can take up space without height -- with your achievements, points of view, and opinions. Now that I’ve realized I can work through it, I’m like, ‘How do I make myself feel more confident?’”

“If I ever get to the point that I’m not happy with my body, I’ll do something about it,” she also notes. “You will always have the power to do something. Sometimes it will take a little longer than you would like, and sometimes it may be a little more extreme. But if you honestly have a goal, you can do it. You just need to figure out the right way to get there.”

Camilla Mendes discuss her struggles with Bulimia

Riverdale star Camila Mendes opened up in an interview with Shape magazine about her struggles with bulimia

"I was always punishing myself. I was even anxious about healthy food," "I was consumed with the details of what I was eating, and I always felt as if I was doing something wrong."


“I realized that I have this platform, and young women and men who look up to me, and there is a tremendous power to do something positive with it,” she said. “It was definitely a very vulnerable thing to put that out there to almost 12 million people on social media. But that’s who I am. That’s me being authentically myself.”

Glad to know she got help. She is a beaut.

Cardi B Sizzle for W Magazine


Rapper Cardi B looked lovely on the cover of W magazine where she discussed her brawl with Nick Minaj,getting pregnant and her career She said;"For a while now she's been taking a lot of shots at me," Cardi told the publication. "I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going." "I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter," Cardi continued. "I love my daughter. I'm a good-ass f--king mom. So for somebody that don't have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn't the time or the place, but I'm not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block."

When she found out she was pregnant;
"When I got pregnant, I was f--king freaking out," Cardi shared. "Everybody around me was like, 'No, this never happened before. Every artist that had a baby, they already put in years in the game. This is your first year. You're going to mess it up. How are you going to make it?' While I was pregnant, I kept telling myself, I can't wait till I'm back out there. I'm going to look hot, and I'm going to be that bitch."

Yes Cardi ,we know you love you daughter (but what would she think of you when she sees the video in the future?) but keep it together next time (hopefully there won't be a next time)

Ciara worked out three times a day after the birth of her second child


Ciara showed off her rocking bod on the cover of Cosmopolitan as she discuss her fitness goals,relationship and ambitions. The Level up singer wore a white top tucked in leather baggy pants for the cover. She said Destiny's child inspired her to be an Entertainer;"They were killing it, and I just went, 'This is what I want to do. I'm gonna be an entertainer…' The first goal I wrote down was to get discovered. The second was to sell 3 to 4 million records. Third, have longevity."

On her ambition:

"I never thought, I can't be because of the color of my skin, I can't be because of my gender. No dream is too big. I want to be a billionaire. The more resources, the more you can do. But I think my greatest accomplishment 10 years from now is that I would have a successful life as it pertains to my marriage and being a mom. It's cool to want to do all these creative things, but it's no good to gain the world if you lose your soul."

On how she worked out three times a day to get a post baby figure;
"It was kind of like, wake up in the morning, breastfeed, eat a small meal, go train, come back in, breastfeed, eat another meal, go train, then come back, have another meal, and then a third training session at night. It was a good challenge, one I set for myself, not for anyone else. Taking care of myself makes me feel really good. And I want to keep it sexy too, you know."

Kylie Jenner Sizzle for Glamour Magazine



Kylie Jenner rocked three covers for Glamour UK Autumn/Winter 2018 issue where she discussed her body since welcoming Stormi,her insecurities and business. she said;

 “Pregnancy completely changed my body at a super young age,” “But I really don’t care.”

“So many negative things come at me all the time. Of course, it does affect me, but you develop a thick skin. Nothing has lasted so long that I haven’t gotten through it, so whenever a new bad story or rumour emerges, I know it will pass, too. Everything in life is transient.” 

“I was super insecure about my lips. I really wanted the illusion of bigger lips, so I overlined mine like crazy, and then people started getting obsessed.”

“Most importantly, the business has given me a purpose,"  I love to work, as Mom has installed such a great work ethic in all of us. If I didn’t have that, I don’t know what I would do. I get to create, it exercises my mind and I am always thinking of how to make the formulas or develop new products.”

“I work hard for Stormi and being able to pass Kylie Cosmetics onto her – if she is interested – would be such a cool thing to do.”

Viola Davis talk about new movie 'Widows' on the cover of Variety


Viola Davis,53 sizzle on the cover of Variety magazine as she discuss new movie,Widows directed by McQueen which also stars Gillian Flynn. Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo, and Elizabeth Debicki. She said;
“I have issues with stories of people who just get out of bed and start robbing banks,” “As an actor, I needed to know what would drive a seemingly together woman to do this, and it always starts with someone reaching bottom.”

 “This kind of role isn’t usually out there for a woman of color,” says Davis. “Widows” is a female-driven enterprise, offering up meaty roles for Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo and Elizabeth Debicki, who play the other members of a gang of widows who must pull off a heist in order to pay their husbands’ debts to a drug dealer.

“People try to be too nice with women,” suggests Davis. “They keep them pretty. They keep them likable. They cater to male fantasies. They cater to the male gaze. This film didn’t do that.”

The How to get away with murder actress also talked about being a woman of colour in Hollywood;
“There are no percentages to show the difference,” says Davis. “It’s vast. Hispanic women, Asian women, black women, we don’t get paid what Caucasian women get paid. We just don’t. … We have the talent. It’s the opportunity that we’re lacking.”

Love her in HTGAWM and i get wait to see this movie. She is a brilliant actress.

Kim Kardashian West on the cover of CR Fashion Book


Kim Kardashian looked different but lovely for a photoshoot with  CR Fashion Book. The 37-year-old gave us a 18th century style vibe in red and pink ensemble with a little cleavage of-course... Speaking to the mag,the reality said though people always she her without her clothes on ,"her soul is kind of modest":“When I do a shoot, I love to see the photographer's version of me," she says. "I’m not a diva who shows up on set and has all these demands of specific angles and glam and how I want to look. I like doing things that aren’t me or aren’t the way that people typically see me, and I love to see that version too.”

"I was just myself and it was more about attitude instead of showing off my body, which was different and refreshing," she says about the photos for CR Fashion Book. "I think people don't really see me as dressing so modest, my soul inside is kind of modest. My closest friends know that about me."

She also talk about the bond she shares with husband ,Kanye;

"I'm big on prayer and superstition together," . “I believe there are signs from the spirit world all around us. When my dad [Robert Kardashian] was sick with cancer, we were laying out by his pool and I said, ‘If you die, you have to come back in the form of a bird.’ We were driving on the freeway right before his funeral and this huge flock of birds flew over the 101. Everyone stopped because it was so crazy looking. I was like, ‘There you are.'”

“Kanye and I always reference birds. We seem to see a lot of black crows," she notes. "... Yesterday Kanye took a picture of the two black crows that are always at our house and always together. We always say that they are our parents hanging out together at our house.”

I love this style on Kim. She does have the look...

Then Kendall said, 'Yeah, I can feel that. I feel you’re a lot nicer to me, now that you have a kid.'

 'Even my ears, I always felt like they stuck out too far, and she [Stormi] has the same ears as me and so now I love my ears.


'It’s just having a different outlook on life so I can pass that on to her. I want to be an example for her. What kind of example would I be if she said she didn’t like her ears, and then I didn’t like them either? I just want to teach her that. I’m trying to love myself more.'

 She also talked about the start of her Lip Kit empire;

'My Lip Kits started with number one, my obsession with make-up and lips specifically and just how I took my insecurity with my lips and turned it into my business model.

To this day, I can’t leave the house without lipstick. So, I just think I’m obsessed with doing my make-up and watching tutorials and that’s kind of how Kylie Cosmetics started.'
