We love when fearless stars go sans makeup on social media (really, check out this gallery). But Ellie Goulding’s latest bare-faced snap prompted some harsh comments on her feeds, which the singer promptly addressed head-on.
You may have seen how the stars prepped and worked the carpet at the CFDA Awards, but there’s some behind-the-scenes action you probably missed. Chrissy Teigen had a wardrobe malfunction, Kanye West and Fern Mallis (a.k.a NYFW enemies) came head-to-head and Girls star Jemima Kirke went au naturel with her underarm hair. Let’s review.

If you’re ready to whip out your bright-hued polish to take to your local salon for your summertime pedi, you might want to hold off for the moment. Last week, The New York Times published a two-part exposé on the health issues manicurists face (miscarriages, skin and respiratory ailments, to name a few) when exposed to harsh chemicals during manicure and pedicure treatments on a daily basis — all in the name of customers’ beauty concerns. The series also highlighted the fact that, in addition to the health risks, nail salon employees are often paid severely below the minimum wage — and sometimes forced to pay a “training fee” before being paid for services — meaning employees take home as little as $30 to $40 a day for 10- to 12-hour workdays.
Charlotte McKinney and Kate Upton have a lot in common: They both grew up in Florida, they’re both blonde bombshells and they just happen to look really good (and scarily similar) in barely-there bikinis. But don’t mention any of that to McKinney.

A quick refresher in case you’re late to the party: A few weeks ago the Internet erupted when Miley Cyrus posted a photo of her grown-out armpit hair on Instagram. Since then, she’s been pretty quiet on the underarm front — giving social media only a couple subtle glimpses of her pit-uation. Until today, when she revealed a new dye job.
