On Saturday, Naomi Biden, aka Joe Biden’s granddaughter/Hunter Biden’s daughter, got married to her partner of 3 years, 25-year-old Peter Neal. The couple wed at the White House. Since 1800, only nineteen weddings and four receptions have been held there. 28-year-old Naomi’s wedding was covered by Vogue, because they love to profile wealthy nepo-babies (see: Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz, that Getty heiress, and Lena Dunham). The pics are pretty, but not everybody is pleased. Gawker reports that the White House Press Corps and other journalists are annoyed they weren’t invited, but Vogue was. SNUB!
The power pose is back, bitches! But with a softer, gentler twist thanks to L.O.V.E., both the concept, and in all likelihood, the name of JLo’s next fragrance offering. Jennifer Lynne Affleck covers this month’s issue of Vogue, which was shot by Annie Leibovitz, but I’m fairly certain Tyra Banks was brought in to direct the shoot. Because even though Jen’s dressed in the flowing silk softness of a hopeless romantic, the close-ups of her exposed feet belie a strength that can only be gained from embarking on an arduous “journey of self-discovery.” So yes, Jen may be the “kind of girl” for whom taking her husband’s last name “still carries tradition and romance,” but she’s not afraid to “Get loud!,” especially now that she’s got a new album to sell that “serves as a kind of bookend to This Is Me…Then, the album she released 20 years ago in the heady early days of her relationship with Affleck.” That’s Ben Affleck, by the way. As in the Mr. Affleck to her “green neon sign whose soft cursive reads ‘Mrs. Affleck’” that hangs in her dressing room.
Rihanna is in the third trimester of her pregnancy, and you know what they say about the third trimester: no long plane rides, don’t get anywhere near cat litter, and NO going to the Met Gala. So, alas, Rihanna could not attend. But a Rihanna-less Met Gala is no way to Met Gala! Us Weekly says that organizers had no choice but to create a (virtual) marble Rihanna statue and debut it online in celebration of the event. Move over, David! There’s a new HBIC of the Statue World.
Rihanna and her baby bump have been making the rounds ever since she revealed that she and A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child. We’ve seen RiRi’s bump in a series of gorgeous pregnancy reveal pictures on the streets of New York City, then on Instagram in a tasteful bump-profile mirror selfie, and finally on the red carpet of an industry event. It probably had people thinking, “What’s even left at this point? A VOGUE cover?” and they would have been correct. Because Rihanna just rihvealed that she and her baby stomach posed for a series of artistic high-fashion pictures for VOGUE’s May issue, like the one seen above, featuring Rihanna and in-utero child working a tomato red lace catsuit with matching gloves and heels. You know, just something she picked up last minute at her local maternity store, tucked between the beige nursing bras and compression socks.
In #thesecontinuedtryingtimes, it’s refreshing to see two young people willing to take a chance on love and the opportunity to deny Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner an invitation to the swankiest wedding in recent Palm Beach history, in one fell swoop. Over the weekend, hundreds gathered at Nelson Peltz and Claudia Heffner’s lavish estate for their 27-year-old actress/model/heiress daughter Nicola Peltz, and 23-year-old aspiring chef/former amateur photographer/probable future DJ Brooklyn Beckham’s, very first weddings.
Lindsay Lohan did a video for Vogue where she “breaks down” eighteen of her looks from 1998 to present day. Lilo starts with the red carpet premiere of The Parent Trap and finishes with a promotional photo of her and Chord Overstreet on the set of Netflix’s upcoming Christmas rom-com, Falling for Christmas. Unfortunately, Vogue omitted every single one of her mid-2000s crotch flashes. Booo!
