Dianne Buswell looks unrecognisable in hilarious teenage throwback video

It's not just Strictly Come Dancing that Dianne Buswell is recognised for – it's also her signature bright red hair! But the pro dancer hasn't always been so brave when it comes to the colour of her tresses, as she proved with a hilarious throwback video on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday evening. The Aussie native treated fans to another one of her talents as she shared some clips of herself as a teenager timidly singing – and she had brown hair!

"Don't laugh!!!!! I'm the one wearing the big coat. Enjoy," she captioned one clip of herself singing on a stage with a friend. "I'm taking it all very seriously," she added in another, zooming in on her own face. Referencing her boyfriend Joe Sugg's new role in West End musical Waitress, she captioned a third clip, "Move over Joe Sugg." And her final throwback she captioned: "I had one emotion this whole song," followed by a series of laughing face emojis and a see-no-evil monkey emoji. Dianne may cringe at her childhood ambition – but we absolutely love it!

Following her shock Strictly elimination alongside partner Dev Griffin over the weekend, Dianne has been forced to jump to the defence of head judge Shirley Ballas after she fell victim to online abuse following her decision to boot Dianne off the show. One fan tweeted the Aussie pro dancer and her boyfriend Joe, telling them: "Please sort your fans out @dbuzz6589 & @Joe_Sugg. I get why people are upset & I don't think it was @dev_101's time to go. But sending vile abusive tweets & death threats to @ShirleyBallas is totally out of order. Imagine if it was a member of your family on the receiving end."

The 30-year-old was quick to respond and told her followers: "Guys this is terrible you cannot be bullying like this. It's awful and really upsets me to hear this. It's simply not ok and should never happen!"

On Sunday, Shirley and her three fellow judges Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood all opted to save Aljaz Skorjanec and Viscountess Emma Weymouth in the dance-off, leaving Dianne and her celebrity dance partner Dev Griffin to exit the show. The decision came as a massive shock to fans, with some even claiming that the phone line for Dev and Dianne was down when they tried to vote.

Inside Draymond Green's Plan to Open 20 Affordable Gyms

Summer 2019 was a wild one for the National Basketball Association. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving went to Brooklyn! Kawhi Leonard and Paul George went to the Clippers! Anthony Davis went to the Lakers! Draymond Green went…actually, Draymond Green sat out the whole player movement portion of the offseason. While the former Defensive Player of the Year could have been the marquis player in next summer’s class, he instead chose to sign a 4 year, $100 million dollar maximum contract extension to remain with the team he’s been with his whole career—the Golden State Warriors. Sitting out the crazy parts of the year’s offseason meant that Green had the time to focus on things he’s passionate about; this summer, that was fitness, and he’s taken some of that money to open three Blink Fitness gyms in the Detroit and Chicago areas.

When Green was a kid, growing up in Saginaw, Michigan, he didn’t have access to gyms. In fact, the first time he ever saw gym equipment was when he was a freshman at Michigan State, gearing up for his first season playing basketball for Coach Tom Izzo. “I remember my first time getting on a stairmaster—I was overweight—and the pedals went straight to the floor,” he says. “I couldn’t even keep them up; I had never seen a stairmaster machine.

So he was inspired, eventually, to make it possible for not just any gyms, but affordable gyms to be available in neighborhoods similar to the one he grew up in. In recent months, Green has opened Blinks in Warren, Michigan, Redford, Michigan, and Evanston, Illinois—all small towns that could easily be home to, well, the next Draymond Green. “Being able to offer a helping hand in helping others, to help their loved ones, is important to me,” he says. He doesn’t plan on stopping at those first three, either—the plan right now is to eventually open 20, with the possibility of even more.

And while physical fitness has always been important—transforming his body is what helped him become the NBA superstar he is today, after all—he keeps a keen eye on the mental aspect of both his own wellness and the league at large, too. This summer, the NBA announced new mental health guidelines for all 30 of its teams, which include having 1-2 mental health professionals retained full-time per team. Green deeply praised the efforts of Adam Silver, the NBA’s commissioner who spearheaded the new policy. “It always floats under the radar, so I think it’s important to be in a great mental state when playing this game at such a high level,” the versatile 6’7” forward says. “It’s something that has to be taken seriously, and I think it’s definitely been taken seriously in our sport.”

Green also credits the idea of ‘wellness’ and self-care as a one of the pillars to living life the right way. “Wellness is very important,” he says. “It’s one of the single most important things because it directly impacts everything you do in your life and so obviously we’re talking from a health and wellness standpoint, but just wellness overall is extremely important.”

There were also a few aspects of Green’s summer that have been left up to mystery. While he was spotted with LeBron James on the set of the upcoming Space Jam 2, he’s still playing coy about what’s going on with that whole thing (“I’m not sure I can answer that,” he says when asked about the rumors).

What he definitively sets the record straight on, though, is the nature of his in-game trash talk. Just about from the moment he first entered the league, Green has been one of its most animated and exciting players to watch—if you’re a fan, you love to root for him, and if you’re an opponent, you hate going against him.

Part of that is due to his defensive dominance and versatility, but another part is his reputation as one of the league’s most effective trash talkers. With a few months off in between seasons, do any ideas for ways to get in anyone’s head start forming in the back of his head? That answer is the most definitive no of any.

“Trash talking isn’t something you practice,” Green says. “It’s a natural thing. I grew up playing the game that way—you’re at the rec center, you’re in high school, you talk. That’s just the way I grew up playing the game of basketball.”

So that settles it—Draymond Green, just as versatile at talking trash as he is at defending every single person on the court.

Chanel's Lucia Pica Knows Naples Like the Back of Her Hand

In an era where seemingly everything is mined for inspiration—or, let’s be frank, appropriation—what does it take to be truly one of a kind? A willingness to break the rules is essential; a strong sense of personal style certainly doesn't hurt; but most of all, you need to have a truly meaningful point of view. At W we are all about celebrating originality, which is why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite people who are constantly pushing boundaries, and asked them to share valuable insights. They may be just starting out or in the prime of their careers, but they are all leading the conversation in their chosen fields—whether it’s fashion, art, film, music, photography, or even skateboarding. The bottom line is that, regardless of their differences, they all share one very important trait: for them, standing out, rather than blending in, is not an option but a necessity.

Lucia Pica is the global creative makeup and color designer for Chanel.

What is originality to you?

Being true, authentic, and pure. Originality is staying close to one’s essence, which naturally reflects individuality.

Who is an Original?

Someone who fearlessly follows their heart and instincts.

What’s the best fashion advice you’ve ever received?

My dad once told me if you decide to wear a miniskirt, don’t tug at it, don’t try to pull it longer…just own it. I think it applies to everything.

Who is your beauty icon?

I’m attracted to women who have strength of character. Whether it is kindness, confidence, wit, mystery…it is about them being unapologetic about who they are. The strength of Monica Vitti’s eyes and voice inspires me. Or the perfectly unusual beauty of Isabella Rossellini.

Who is your style icon?

Any character from a Michelangelo Antonioni film.

What was your first major fashion purchase?

A Helmut Lang shirt with a slit at the elbows.

What’s the most prized possession in your closet?

My grandmother’s rose-shaped earrings.

What’s the worst fashion or beauty trend that you’ve participated in?

I plucked my eyebrows really thin in the ’90s. Like one line—it was really sad.

What was your style like as a teenager?

Big sweaters, T-shirts, and jeans. I wanted to look like my brothers.

What are your social media pet peeves?

I would say the kind of restrictions that social media might bring—the sort of overthinking of your life and what you wear and what you do, just because it might be exposed, and it might be criticized. It must be really hard being a teenager right now.

What’s your secret skill?

I sometimes like to paint simple little watercolors, but I don’t know if it’s a skill—it’s just an interest. I like the medium because the paint kind of directs you, and you’re not in control so much. Literally—sometimes it goes its own way, and you have to try to work around it. But I’m not an expert at all!

Lucia Pica wears a Chanel jacket, skirt, and shoes; her own T-shirt and watch.

You were born in Naples. Any shopping tips there?

To be honest, I don’t shop that much. I only go to this vintage place called Doctor Vintage. I get all my denim, like jeans, there. I was there this past August, and I got this really nice pale blue jacket, a trenchcoat, and a pair of high-waisted white corduroy trousers.

Any other secret or beloved addresses in Naples?

I go to Ristorante da Dora for fresh fish and the best spaghetti alle vongole, or this old-school local place called Amici Miei for comfort food. Osteria da Tonino for lunch is like your mom’s cooking, you know? I also like to have an aperitivo near Piazza Santa Maria. They’re all authentic places, not overly done or anything. For culture I go a lot to the Museo Archeologico Nazionale. I also love Cimitero delle Fontanelle, which is an ossuary full of skulls. And then, right near Posillipo, there is the Gaiola Underwater Park, where you can see submerged ruins and walk down to a little beach.

Who was the first person who made you realize you could break the rules?

It wasn’t a person but a town: London. When I moved there, it ­completely changed my perception of things and inspired me to push myself.

Chloë Sevigny


You grew up in Connecticut. Do you remember your first trip to New York?My father commuted to Manhattan, so he would bring me in when I was a little girl for, like, Daddy and Daughter Day. I remember I had this little suit and tie, and he taught me how to tie a tie. I must have been like 5.

Do you still have moments now when you visit a certain area in the city and have vivid flashbacks or memories?Every single time I walk into Washington Square Park, I swear to God, I get a weird feeling of vertigo. I spent so much time there as a teenager, and I got cast for Kids there, and it was where I was kind of discovered by Sassy magazine. I just spent so many of my formative days in that park that I still get misty-eyed.

Do you think New York has changed for the worse over the years?It seems like what everyone is complaining about in New York is happening everywhere. With the Internet and the world becoming so much smaller, the specificity of “I’m going to New York to find something I can’t find anywhere else in the world” just doesn’t exist anymore. That’s what I mourn.

RuPaul has collaborated with Mally Beauty for an inclusive make-up collection

RuPaul and Mally Roncal have created a make-up collection that’s beautiful, fun and for everyone. Here, they talk to Stylist about the exciting collaboration.

Alongside his charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, RuPaul is an icon in the beauty industry. So, when we heard that Ru has teamed up with make-up artist Mally Roncal to create a sickening beauty collection for cosmetics brand Mally Makeup, we jumped at the chance to sit down with both of them for a sneak peek.

The pair met in the early 90s, when Roncal was working as an assistant to fashion designer Kalinka. Ru came into the offices for a fitting and the two hit it off instantly.

“Ru was already the drag queen of the universe and very famous in the fashion world,” says Roncal, “There I was watching the fitting and I literally almost passed out. Obviously, he’s a beautiful man, but when he’s in full drag, it’s otherworldly.”

Ru adds that make-up can have a much bigger transformation than what’s on the outside. “You know, it still surprises me this day, when I see myself in drag and go ‘Is that me?’ I’ve never once gotten used to it,” he tells us.

“But that’s the power of make-up and how you’re able to transform yourself – not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually. Because the effort put forward in transforming yourself, it is amazing. And you can apply that to many different areas of your life.

“Years ago, my therapist said ‘You know Ru, the power you feel in drag is available to you when you’re out of drag’. What?! It never occurred to me. It’s like SuperMan and Clark Kent.

“Make-up is sort of a preliminary step into realisation, and then it extends further. That’s why I’m so passionate about this collection we’ve put together and being able to share with people out there everything we’ve learnt in this process of falling in love with make-up.”

The entire collection can be used in a variety of ways to create whoever you want to be, adds Roncal. It’s no surprise then, that with two powerhouse names, a wide range of beautiful shades and impressive formulas, the collection sold out fast in the U.S. Now, it’s finally landed in the UK, exclusive to QVC. Here’s everything you need to know about the collection…

The idea for the collaboration stemmed from years of friendship

MR: “I had the biggest balls in the world. Somebody said to me ‘Who would be your dream collab – living/dead, anybody in the whole wide world – be?’ I didn’t skip a beat and I said RuPaul. He represents everything that I believe in and that the world would be a better place if they had RuPaul for president [laughs], right?”

The collection has been created with everybody in mind 

MR: “It’s for everybody and Ru was really passionate about making sure that everyone was represented. The thing I love about the feedback we’d been getting so far is that it shows it’s for everyone. All of our drag queen friends are excited and they love it – but, my next-door neighbour, text me saying ‘I need this eyeliner in bulk, don’t sell out of it. I’m going to have my friend order it from the UK’. She’s having a friend order it in the UK, because it’s sold out in the US.”

The colours of each product were picked according to Ru’s drag aesthetic  

RP: “It’s based on my go-to colours. I’m in make-up all the time and I always get to be as dramatic as I want to and break the rules. You can regulate how dramatic you want your nude lip to be, you don’t even have to wear a liner with it. In fact, the same liner which is meant for the eye can be used on the lips and used wherever you want to.”

Both of them want you to break the make-up rules by using the products however you want 

RP: “They work together, they work alone, or you can mix them and create a whole new colour by mixing these two together. That’s what it’s all about – 21st century, baby! We’re breaking the rules; but not only just the rules ‘out there’, but also trying to expand your own relationship with make-up and how to make it work for you. It’s like prescription – you write your own prescription. And everyone’s different, so see what works for you!”

They wanted the collection to be fun, too 

RP: “We know that the consumer wants great products – so you start with the great products. Then you offer an aesthetic; look how beautiful the packaging is. You also want to also offer a lifestyle and that’s what we’ve done here. The names are wild and fun. That’s what we love about each other and that’s what we’ve infused this collection with. It’s this approach to make-up that is not only empowering, but is full of love, is full of joy and full of possibilities to paint outside the lines. An eye pencil on your lips or a lipstick on your cheeks or a shadow on your nose. It’s all of that.”

The line-up

  • Mally x RuPaul Draglash Mascara, £19.50

    RP: “The brush is square so you can really get in there, you get to the root of that lash and build that mascara up. It’s something really spectacular.”

    MR: “If someone with blonder/red lashes puts on mascara, you can actually see where the root begins and where the mascara starts, so the brush is very important. And I love the fact that yes, it’s called Draglash, and obviously for TV we really build it up, but I have days when I just wear one coat and it’s just enough to then run out the door.”

  • Mally x RuPaul Limited Edition Face Defender & Sponge, £40

    RP: “I’m a long, long time user of the Face Defender. It is something that has been on Mally’s cosmetics line for many years and it is a lifesaver. Obviously, I wear it all the time and on every set I go to in Hollywood, I see it in every make-up artist’s kit.”

    Buy now

  • Mally x RuPaul Lipstick for Your Life Trio, £34

    RP: “These three lipstick are actually three different textures. Mally said a lot of ladies don’t like to go so deep with a red, but I love a red lip. So this one actually goes on sheer, but you can build it up to make it really pungent. But initially, it’s just very sheer.”

    MR: “Yeah, it’s like a little bit of a wash of a red, but you can really go and build it. Ru really believes that everybody needs a great red so we said, if we were going to go red, then let’s go bullet proof red!”

    The lipsticks are also available individually: Mama Ru (red), Werk Room (nude), TeeHee (pink), all £22 each

    Buy now

  • Mally x RuPaul Hiieee-Lighter & Ruge Duo & Blush Brush, £34

    MR: “These shades, ‘So Lit’ and ‘#legend’, are the most beautiful highlight and blush; we’re all wearing it. It’s universal. If you go on very light and soft, you get a little glow and colour. But if you really go in, it does truly feel lit from within. My tip? Take the blush and then put the highlighter on top.”

    Buy now

  • Mally x RuPaul Polished Liquid Lipstick, £22 each

    RP: “These here, they stay on and they do not dry out your lips. They’re those stay-on kind of lipsticks I just love so much and I wear make-up for 16-17 hours a day and the colour don’t go anywhere.”

    Buy now

  • Mally x RuPaul Realness Eyeliner Trio, £27.50

    RP: “Most people wouldn’t think to put a colour like Mighty Love [a rusty red] on their eye, but this colour already exists in your actual skin, so it’s a unifier and it combines two colours. And actually, used as this trio, these pencils make your eyes look so gorgeous.”

    The eyeliners are also available individually: Mighty Love (rusty red), Hey Sis (sultry grey-black) and Sequence (classic jet black), all £20 each

    Buy now

  • Mally x RuPaul RuPalette & Limited Edition Double-Ended Eyeshadow Brush

    From matte neutrals to bold shimmers, these shades have been created to work against all skin tones and the line-up has everything you need to create day and night looks. Plus, with names like Kitty Gurl, Sissy That Walk, Born Naked and Tongue Pop, it’s bound to add some fun to your routine, too.

The 17 Best Calorie-Burning Exercises, Ranked In Order Of Effectiveness

If you’re dedicating valuable time in your day to a sweat sesh, chances are you want to know it’s actually worth your time, right? Okay, now raise your hand if you’ve heard different fitness philosophies about the most-effective way to rev your heart rate. Specifically, some people say cardio is the ultimate calorie-burner, while other swear by strength training. Well, it’s time to set the record straight.

It’s true that people tend to expend more calories in the moment while doing cardio exercise like running when compared to lifting weights, says Laura Miranda, CSCS, a doctor of physical therapy, fitness nutrition specialist, and certified personal trainer. “But weights, or anaerobic workouts, keep our excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), or post-workout calorie burn, going from hours to days.” So you shouldn’t count them out entirely when you’re creating a cardio training plan.

EPOC = Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (post-workout calorie burn)

The reason weight training has such a prolonged calorie-burn effect is because the greater the intensity, the more oxygen your body will need post-workout to recover and repair muscles, explains Miranda. By choosing exercises that ramp up that afterburn effect, “you get more bang for your buck in the long term,” she says. “Muscle is the most metabolically active tissue, so the more of it we have, the more effective we are at burning calories all day long.”

But yeah, which exercises burn the most calories exactly? Unsurprisingly, on a list of the best burners below—ranked in order of effectiveness—aerobic exercise tends to win in terms of immediate results. (FYI: Calorie burn is estimated for a 125-pound person and a 185-pound person, according to guidelines from the American College of Sports Medicine. The more you weigh, the more calories you tend to burn on any particular task—but a lot of other factors come in to play, too, so this isn’t an exact science.) But there a quite a few top contenders from the weight category too.

No matter which type of workouts you choose, opt for the “bonus burn”—tips from Miranda and New York City-based trainer Noam Tamir, CSCS, owner of TS Fitness—to torch even more total calories.

17 Best Calorie-Burning Exercises

1. Jumping rope

The burn: 667–990 calories/hour if you’re jumping at 120 skips per minute

The bonus burn: Try using a weighted jump rope to engage your arms and shoulders even more.

For a full-body workout challenge, give this calorie-torching jump rope workout from Carrie Underwood’s trainer a try. BTW: It helped her score those iconic legs.

2. Running Up Hill/Stair Sprints

The burn: 639–946 calories/hour

The bonus burn: “You want to sprint at a pace that you can only maintain for about 20 seconds, and follow that with a recovery run at half of the intensity of the sprint and double the time,” says Miranda.

3. Kickboxing

The burn: 582–864 calories/hour

The bonus burn: Make sure you keep the rest periods between rounds of jabs and kicks super short. Aim for 30 seconds of rest for every 90 seconds of sparring.

Try this boxing workout for the ultimate burn.

4. Cycling intervals

The burn: 568–841 calories/hour

The bonus burn: Adding high intensity intervals throughout a steady state or low-intensity ride will increase the afterburn even more.

5. Running

The burn: 566–839 calories/hour at a 10-minute mile pace

The bonus burn: Run at a steady state pace (i.e. a 7 out of 10 in terms of effort), and you’ll continue to burn extra calories over the rest of the day.

To torch more during and after your workout, add short bursts of sprints or faster running into your jog, says Tamir. He recommends keeping a 2:1 work-to-rest ratio to get the most afterburn. For example, if you run for 60 seconds, walk 30 seconds.

6. Kettlebell circuit

The burn: 554–822 calories/hour

The bonus burn: Tamir says that a HIIT circuit using kettlebells can keep the afterburn going for 36 hours after you leave the gym. To get the best results, make sure you’re not stopping to rest between each move.

Tamir recommends switching between upper- and lower-body movements so you can keep exercising for a longer period of time. Try doing a set of kettlebell swings, kettlebell squats, and kettlebell push presses. Then, rest for 15 to 20 seconds after completing the three moves. You could also pick and choose some other moves from the best kettlebell exercises.

Or, try these seven kettlebell moves for awesome abs from the video below.

7. Stationary bike

The burn: 498–738 calories/hour (at a vigorous pace)

The bonus burn: To get the most afterburn, Tamir says to start with 10 seconds of intense pedaling (100 RPMs or more) and 50 seconds of rest. Then, move to 15 seconds of sprints and 45 seconds of rest, and do 20 seconds of sprints 40 seconds of rest after that. Don’t forget to turn up the resistance as you progress!

Or, try this metabolism-blasting cycling workout.

8. Rowing machine

The burn: 481–713 calories/hour at 150 watts, which you can check on the machine

The bonus burn: To get maximum torching power, row in super-fast, one-minute intervals (150 watts), and take 30- to 60-second active rest periods by alternating between squats, pushups, and planks.

Another option is this high-intensity rowing workout, which will get your heart racing.

9. Loaded kettlebell carries

The burn: 476–705 calories/hour

The bonus burn: Walking with weighted kettlebells forces you to practice strong posture and core control. “My fav method is the three-in-one,” says Miranda. “Start walking with two kettlebells overhead, walk as far as you can until you need to stop. Then, drop the bells to the front racked position and continue walking until you need to stop again. Finally, drop them down to the farmer’s carry position (at your sides), and continue walking as long as you can.” This is one cycle, rest two minutes, then repeat.

Try some of these other great kettlebell exercises if you’re looking for more ways to work with the weight.

10. Stairs

The burn: 452–670 calories/hour when going 77 steps per minute

The bonus burn: To up the ante, hold a one- to five-pound dumbbell in each hand to get your upper body fired up, too.

Bottom line: Whether you’re working the Stair Master or running steps around town, à la Rocky, stair climbing provides a good mix of aerobic and anaerobic exercise.

11. Sled pushes and pulls

The burn: 447–661 calories/hour

The bonus burn: “Turn around and walk backwards in a low squat while you pull the sled with you!” Miranda recommends.

This method of training targets your upper body, lower body, and core. “If your gym does not have traditional sled, try tying a TRX around a few plates or even a kettlebell,” says Miranda. “Charge across the gym floor by driving the weight forward with your entire body.” To get the most calorie bang for your buck, aim to do a lot of reps, at high intensity, but for a short amount of time, she says.


  • 10–15 seconds of work
  • 12–15 reps
  • Rest about 20–30 seconds in between each rep

12. Strength training

The burn: 341–504 calories/hour

The bonus burn: You’ll increase your afterburn by working your muscles to exhaustion each set instead of stopping at an arbitrary rep range like 10 or 12, says Miranda. And focus on compound movements that employ more muscle groups over more joints. “You’ll skyrocket your EPOC by swapping out exercises like bicep curls for squats, and crunches for cleans,” she says.

This workout for stronger abs is a great way to get started:

13. Metabolic resistance training circuit

The burn: 340–505 calories/hour

The bonus burn: “Research has shown that shortening the rest interval will increase EPOC,” says Miranda. “If you’ve been doing a circuit of 5 different weight exercises for 30 seconds of work and 20 seconds of rest, try decreasing the rest to 10 seconds.”

In a normal circuit, you’d perform each set at a maximum intensity followed by a long rest. But the “metabolic resistance training” method requires you to maintain a high (but sub-max) intensity throughout the workout, with little rest between sets for the entire session.

14. Elliptical

The burn: 322-478 calories/hour (at a resistance level of 8)

The bonus burn: If you’re after a better burn, don’t keep the same pace the entire time you’re on the elliptical. Vary the incline and levels of resistance to keep things interesting (read: challenging).

15. Explosive sandbag training

The burn: 298–441 calories/hour

The bonus burn: “Opt for compound movements to help recruit as many muscle groups as possible, thus drastically increasing your energy expenditure,” says Miranda. “Three of my favs are reverse lunge with a rotation, a clean, and lateral lunge with the bag.”

16. Battle ropes

The burn: 285–421 calories/hour

The bonus burn:Do five rounds of overhead slams for 30 seconds; during each round, try to do more reps than in the previous round.

As part of a circuit or on their own, weighted rope exercises will torch tons of calories, says Miranda. “One study showed that doing 3 sets of 30 seconds of battle ropes produced greater acute energy expenditure (during the workout) than 3 sets of 10 squats with a moderate load,” she says.

You can also try any of these 15 battle rope moves if you want to shake up your fitness routine further.

17. Power yoga

The burn: 226–335 calories/hour

The bonus burn: To get the most burn, sign up for a power vinyasa flow class. “Strength-driven practices, where you match the breath with the movement, is where you would have the most afterburn,” says Tamir.

Try this weighted yoga flow for an even greater challenge.

Khloé Kardashian's Inverted Bob Is Going to Be Your Go-To Fall Haircut

Khloé Kardashian’s Inverted Bob Is Going to Be Your Go-To Fall Haircut

If you follow Khloé Kardashian, you’ll know the reality star and Good American designer has experimented with numerous inspiring hairstyles this year, from a shoulder-length cut to extralong ponytails. Her latest one is just as memorable, as she debuted an inverted bob.

Kardashian posted a series of photos of her with the look — paired with neon makeup and a white manicure — on her Instagram feed and Story. She tagged hairstylist Clyde Haygood in the post, who presumably created the look for her.

An inverted bob (also known as the reverse or A-line bob) is a version of the short hairstyle with ends that start shorter in the back and get longer toward the face. While the haircut has been popular in the last decade, hairstylist Linet Keshishian previously told POPSUGAR that you can make it more modern with how you style it. With “glass hair” — a term coined by Chris Appleton to describe hair that is so shiny, it has a mirror-like finish — taking over Instagram this year, this sleek version is one way to take the look to 2019.

Paula Abdul, 57, Admits She Had Facial Laser Surgery: I Wanted A ‘Sleeker Jawline’ — See Before & After Pics

Paula Abdul is looking amazing at age 57, and she’s admitting its thanks to getting a laser procedure to her jawline and neck for a ‘sleeker’ appearance.

Straight up, Paula Abdul is looking ageless these days. When she performed at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in May, she proved that her body and dance skills are just as sharp at age 57 as they were 30 years ago when she dropped her Forever Your Girl album. Ahead of her Las Vegas residency in August, she wanted to make sure her face looked as youthful as her dance moves and she’s revealed she got a laser procedure done to her jawline and neck to make it more “sleek.” Paula explained to a very interested Wendy Williams, 55, on her daytime talk show about how she’s looking so fresh without any incisions or scars.

“You never age, you look so good,” Wendy told Paula when she first hit the sofa on Oct. 3. After discussing how she takes care of her body to pull off her extraordinary 90 minute high energy Vegas show, she discussed how she wanted to improve her facial looks ahead of the residency, but was scared of going under the knife. “Women of our age, we really start looking for aesthetic treatments that resonate with you and I was thinking ‘I’m going to have my residency and I want to do something,’ but I wasn’t ready to have any big incisions or a face lift.” So she turned to a company called In Mode for their “Face Tight” procedure.

“It’s minimally invasive, no visible scars, down time…I was out walking around two or three days later,” she revealed. “What did you get done? What did you get tightened?” Wendy excitedly asked. Paula mentioned how skin elasticity around the jaw and neck can make things droopier with age and that, “I wanted a little sleeker jawline,” Paula said as she put her hands up to her face to show off the results. “It’s radio frequency laser technique…you can get numb or if you’re a wimp like me you can get an Ativan (an anti-anxiety drug).”

Paula said that the procedure took about an hour or maybe less, but she wasn’t totally sure as she was a little “loopy.” “What I love about it is there’s no visible scars, no big incisions” she explained, as Wendy jumped in to say, “I don’t see anything! Except for a flat neck.” The “Straight Up” singer really does look amazing and you can check out the before and after pics above to see the results of her procedure.
