Filipino beauty brand GlutaMAX apologises for discriminatory ad

Filipino beauty brand GlutaMAX finally issued a formal apology amidst all the criticisms surrounding their latest ad which discriminated against people whose skin colour are in the deeper spectrum. In a now-deleted Facebook post, the brand posted a series of photographs encouraging morenas (Filipinas with dark skin) to lighten their complexion so that they can also enjoy the same privileges that people with fairer skin receive. The advertisement even had a cheeky tagline of "Your Fair Advantage" which seems to empower but is just actually appealing to insecurities. What's your take?

La Perla's Bridal Collection

Take note, brides-to-be! Luxury lingerie brand La Perla is now making made-to-measure wedding dresses and the designs are irresistibly beautiful. The wedding genre is not really new territory for La Perla as they have been releasing wedding lingerie collections for quite some time. Now, with a new creative director at the helm, they are expanding to bridal dresses that still showcase the core identity of the brand. In their Spring 2020 collection (their first ever bridal wear collection), you can find delicate laces and intricate embroidery. 

Ariana Grande x NSYNC

Just confirmed: Ariana Grande reunites with NSYNC at Coachella. After days of hinting and teasing from the pop star on a possible collaboration with the '90s boyband, it finally happened. At Coachella, the 25-year-old performed 1997 hit Tearin’ Up My Heart with members Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. That's awesome and all but where's Justin Timberlake?

Charlie's Angels reboot is on its way

It's no secret that the Charlie's Angels reboot is off to a rocky start. Not because of production but with the nasty reaction on social media. Despite this, the cast featuring Kristen Stewart, Elizabeth Banks, and of course, bae of the day Noah Centineo, is still intriguing. The movie is slated to be released in November, so we'll just wait and see how it turns out.
