Social media has been buzzing over the events of the weekend! From celebrity spotting to new beauty releases, the deluge of exciting (and some heartbreaking) news are here just shouting for your attention. Before your Monday comes to a close, here’s your catch-up on the latest news in entertainment, beauty, and fashion.
See Jennifer Lopez in a wedding dress in the middle of NYC
No, it’s not because she’s getting married on the streets of New York. J. Lo was spotted sporting a ginormous strapless wedding gown and veil for her new rom-com Marry Me. She plays a pop star picking a random fan from the audience to marry her after discovering that her rock star fiance cheated right before their wedding. It's a crazy premise, but it’s nothing over us going gaga over the stunning gown. Designed by Zuhair Murad Couture, the gown has a lot of sparkling details that glisten and glimmer from every angle and a long, long, long train to amplify the drama.
Meghan Markle opens up about tabloid scrutiny in a new documentary
The Duchess of Sussex opens up about the stress that comes with royal motherhood and having the eyes of British tabloids on her in the new documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey. It covers their royal tour of Africa, which happened last September and aired in the UK last Sunday. Heartbreakingly, Meghan thanks the interviewer for asking after her personal and emotional wellbeing especially after giving birth to her son Archie last May. The documentary was filmed prior to Prince Harry denouncing several British newspapers and tabloids for their invasion of Meghan’s privacy.

Tati Beauty is coming your way this week
YouTuber and makeup guru Tati Westbrook recently announced the launch of her own makeup company, simply called Tati Beauty. After years of fans clamouring for a makeup collection or collaboration (even garnering some negativity during the launch of her vitamin company back in 2017 because it wasn't a makeup brand, yikes!), she posted a video revealing the shoot for the brand’s first product launch last week. From what we can glean from the teaser, she will be coming out with a makeup palette with warm shades and a neutral colour story.
