Looking Back at Adele’s Illustrious Music Career

At long last, Adele is finally back.
On Thursday evening, the Grammy-winning singer dropped “Easy on Me,” the lead single from her upcoming and highly anticipated fourth studio album “30.” A music video, directed by Xavier Dolan (who was also behind the video for her hit 2015 single “Hello”), accompanied the release of her song.
The video starts off in the singer’s signature black-and-white silhouette — like her previous music videos for “Hello” and “Someone Like You” — as she prepares to leave an empty house with a suitcase in a patent brown leather coat and sunglasses. She hops in a car, pops in a cassette tape before she looks in the rearview mirror to show her trademark cat eyeliner and drives as the beginning of the song starts playing.
She passes by other young couples happy and in love as she sings throughout the piano progression. In the latter half of the song, the video turns into color to show Adele sitting in a red-themed room with toppled furniture scattered throughout and sheets of music flying as she continues the rest of the song. As the video concludes, it shows a short blooper of the singer bursting into laughter from the wind machine

Are Fendi and Skims Plotting a Collaboration?

A TALE OF TWO KIMS: Kim Jones and Kim Kardashian West are allegedly cooking up something for Fendi.
According to images leaked on Instagram, the Rome-based luxury house is plotting a collaboration with Kardashian West’s shapewear brand Skims, which is rumored to be dropping sometime next month.
Instagram account @connie_personal_shopping, a personal shopper based in the U.K., posted a range of pictures of midi and mini body-con dresses to her Instagram Stories, as well as an ivory white cropped top and pencil skirt set all embossed with both companies’ logos and crafted from a stretch knitted fabric.
The images, which came accompanied by captions suggesting a November release of the collection, for which the personal shopper and stylist said she was taking preorders, were then removed.
Fendi and Skims representatives did not respond to WWD’s request for comment by press time Thursday.
Rumors of a potential Fendi and Skims collaboration surfaced online earlier this year when Kardashian West visited the company’s headquarters at the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana in Rome, leaving fans and tabloids speculating about a potential tie-up.
And a collaboration between the two companies would fit with Jones’ penchant for tie-ups.

Maeve Reilly Talks Megan Fox’s ‘Sexy,’ ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ Style and Coordinating With Machine Gun Kelly

If anyone is having a big year for style, it’s Megan Fox.
From her naked Mugler dress at the MTV VMAs to her scorching red cutout Peter Dundas gown at the Met Gala to her bright pink, Barbie-inspired Mach & Mach jumpsuit at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the actress has elevated her red carpet and street style again and again.
In the last few months, Fox’s outfits have caused constant frenzies on the internet, with fans going crazy for her looks — and much of that is due to her stylist Maeve Reilly. Though they’ve only worked together for less than a year, it seems like they’ve known each other for “lifetimes.”
“It’s been kind of like love at first sight, truthfully,” Reilly told WWD of her relationship with Fox. “The perfect synchronicity of us finding each other.…I don’t think I could have predicted how well this was going to go.”
After having big moments in the late 2000s into the early 2010s, due to hits like the “Transformers” franchise and “Jennifer’s Body,” Fox has mostly stayed out of the spotlight in the last few years due to dedicating her time to raising a family. (She has three sons with Brian Austin Green, whom

Kylie Jenner’s latest launch for Kylie Cosmetics has the perfect Halloween twist.
The collection, which is available starting today, is inspired by Wes Craven’s classic slasher film “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” featuring blood splatters, Freddy Krueger’s silhouette and claw marks from his gloved hand covered with sharp razor blades on its packaging.
It will include a 12-color eyeshadow palette, a three-piece lip shine lacquer set, a lip and cheek jelly stain and a pair of fake lashes called “Kylashes.”
