#SocialGathering: Beyonce Introduces Ivy Park; Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski Strip Down
And Chrissy Teigen reveals she's not a fan of Trader Joe's.
Can't keep up with what's trending in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what the stars have been up to this week on the World Wide Web.
Beyonce's New Athleisure Line
Beyonce unveiled her new athleisure line, Ivy Park, on Elle's May cover, but not without the mag creating a major buzz on Instagram first. Users were feeling all the feels over Elle’s Instagram countdown to Bey, in which they posted 25 consecutive photos of her. Fans also swarmed over to Ivy Park’s Instagram account, @weareivypark, helping the athleisure line's platform gain 80.5K followers in 24 hours. Not everyone's thrilled with Beyonce’s new business venture, though. Lululemon jokingly tweeted that "Imitation is the best form of flattery," but the Beygency was having none of it.
Kim Kardashian West and Emily Ratajkowski Pose Nude
Kim Kardashian West was at it again, posting another body-baring photo this week. But this time around, she was joined by model Emily Ratajkowski, who is no stranger to modeling nude. Captioned Ratajkowski on her own Instagram account: "We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality. #liberated @kimkardashian." Welcome to feminism, 2016-style.
@halleberry Is Here
Welcome to Instagram, Halle Berry! The Oscar-winning actress joined the app this week by posting a topless photo. Perhaps she's trying to join Kardashian’s #liberated club. Or not. Because, you know, art.
Gwyneth Paltrow Heads to Buenos Aires
Gwyneth Paltrow traveled to Argentina this week for Coldplay’s stop in Buenos Aires and brought friends (and Ralph Lauren models) Nacho Figueras and Delfina Blaquier along for the show. The world also got another peek at Figueras' impressive new stables. Total #architectureporn.
60 Seconds Flat
Instagram rolled out the 60-second video feature to select influencers this week. Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing offered a glimpse of his creative process; Selena Gomez took users into the studio; and makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury showed off her never-before-seen atelier. Instagram confirmed this new, longer video format will be available for everyone in the coming months.
Ballet is paying off for Victoria Beckham. The designer posted a photo of her impressive flexibility in a head-to-toe glam look, but what else would you expect from Posh?
Kendall + Kylie's #OnlyatNM Collection
Kendall and Kylie Jenner hosted a private dinner Thursday night with Neiman Marcus and Visa to celebrate their #OnlyatNM Kendall + Kylie collection. Neiman Marcus senior vp/fashion director Ken Downing raved about the exclusive range during the evening, while chic momager Kris Jenner joked that she nearly went into labor at Neiman’s. The intimate evening took place on the rooftop of The Peninsula Beverly Hills, and the night ended with synchronized swimmers.
Author Jacques Hyzagi’s career-suicide tirade, "Elle on Earth," published by the Observer earlier this week, recounted the author’s experience as a freelance contributor to Elle. The confusing tale of Hyzagi’s experience of working on a piece about Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garcons' designer, became social media fodder, with journalists cosigning the end of Hyzagi’s freelance career.
"fiercely intelligent and has no patience for goobers" was plagiarized from my pre-planned obituary, please report https://t.co/zZ337qbXUK— Alana Massey (@AlanaMassey) March 30, 2016
Cara Delevingne Is Still a Model
Cara Delevingne doesn’t quit, OK? The model explained to her 5.03 million Twitter followers that she hasn't left the modeling world and revealed that depression led her to take a break from the fashion industry.
I never said I was quitting modeling— Cara Delevingne (@Caradelevingne) April 1, 2016
I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred— Cara Delevingne (@Caradelevingne) April 1, 2016
Chrissy Teigen Is Anti-Trader Joe's
Food lover Chrissy Teigen doesn’t love Trader Joe's. Teigen tweeted in response to Yahoo's April Fools' story, which claimed that Trader Joe’s is set to close all locations by next year. Instead of apologizing, Teigen stated the "rules" of April Fools' Day.
