Happy 67th Wedding Anniversary Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip!

On November 20, 1947, two years after the end of the second World War, the world reveled in the marriage of a reserved, 21-year-old princess to the man she fell in love with at the age of 13. And now, 67 years later, we’re reveling in the still-strong marriage of the pair, now known as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Just a few short years ago, the world rallied around another royal wedding, that of Prince William and Kate Middleton, on April 29, 2011. Despite the 64-year gap between the two events, there are many similarities between the two couples, which we’ve rounded up in this slideshow.

Still, as fun as it all is to look at, the parallel we truly hope to see is that Kate and William have just as strong and lasting of a union as the young queen and her prince. All hail to love!

It’s Katy Perry’s 30th Birthday! See Her Transform from High School Freshman to Pop Queen


October 25, 2014 @ 8:10 am

Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, the wildly personable and international pop icon Katy Perry rings in the big 3-0 today, but that’s not all the singer has to celebrate.

Since her introductory days into the music industry as a gospel singer (adorable, right?), the “Roar” songstress has solidified her place among the best-selling artists of all time after her Teenage Dream album became the first by a female artist to produce five No. 1 songs in a row. All in a day’s work for Katy Perry, but that’s what you’d expect from an artist who has sold more than 72 million digital singles, which made her the best-selling digital singles artist in the U.S. earlier this year. And as if you aren’t already impressed, Katy added Twitter tycoon to her already extensive list of accolades when she became the first person to hit 50 million followers, which broke the Guinness World Record for most Twitter followers and officially inspired us to step up our social-media game.

Ever the daring, fashion-forward trendsetter, word on the street is Katy is in the market to produce her own fashion brand, a move that will surely send every Katy Cat clamoring for a piece of the “Firework” singer’s audacious style. Speaking of which, we can’t wait to see what crowd-pleasing fashion liberties she will take when she headlines the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Feb. 1.

Is there anything this superwoman can’t do? Katy Perry for president! Just kidding, but really.

Happy 45th Birthday, Gwen Stefani! From Punk Princess to Glamour Queen, See Her Best Beauty Moments

Happy birthday, Gwen Stefani! The positively ageless performer turns 45 today. Best known for being the frontwoman of No Doubt, Stefani has certainly come a long way since her combat boot-wearing and mesh top-rocking days (though we’re still big fans of her punk rock roots!) The Voice coach and L.A.M.B. designer can put a glamorous spin on any outfit, as we saw at this year’s VMAs and Emmys, and isn’t afraid to stand out—in fact, her signature edgy-chic look is her trademark. “I’m the girl who would wear baggy jeans but didn’t forget to put on tons of makeup,” Stefani has said of her early days with No Doubt. And we wouldn’t want it any other way!
