Hello, Monday! While the first day of the week may not be the most fun for some people, we sure know how to make the most of it by digging through some news that gathered up during the weekend. And if you're in the mood to sift through the goings-on like we are, give our Insider Roundup a read for the scoop on why Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner got subpoenaed and more.

Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and more facing subpoenas

Models and personalities Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and more who were involved in the Fyre Festival promotional video are now facing subpoenas to explain the payment scheme the talents received from Fyre Media CEO Billy McFarland. In case you haven't heard of the disastrous event or have seen the Hulu and Netflix documentaries, Fyre Festival was supposed to be a high-profile luxury event to be held in an island in the Bahamas, complete with gourmet food and many VIP attendees. However, due to issues in security, accommodations and overall operations, the event did not happen. It resulted in a myriad of lawsuits on the account of defrauding ticket buyers and an estimated total of USD100 million damages caused. Yikes!

Porcelain’s fourth and largest outlet to date, this 3,450 sq. ft. boutique has a total of 14 treatment rooms and several digital features that include a personalised app, the Product Discovery Bar, Digital Consultation and Smart Mirrors for an overall technologically mediated bespoke experience. Well, that's our weekend plans sorted.

Our favourite looks from the SAG Awards

And for this year's SAG Awards, the big winners in our book are Shangela in Christian Siriano, Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton, Margot Robbie in Chanel, and Lady Gaga channelling Marilyn Monroe in a beautiful white Dior dress.

Now, we don't know about you but we're already excited to send our entries.
