On Monday, the Jonas Brothers hosted the premiere of their new documentary, “Chasing Happiness,” at the Regency Bruin Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

But on the red carpet, their wives stole the show, wearing eye-catching ensembles that all incorporated sheer details.

The gown was created by designer Paco Rabanne.

To complete her look, the “Game of Thrones” actress donned simple black sandals, and wore her hair in loose waves. She also went with a minimal eye makeup and a bold red lip to add some extra glamour.

Jeffree Star says someone stole $2.5 million worth of makeup from his warehouse

Jeffree Star says someone stole $2.5 million worth of makeup from his warehouse

Someone stole $2.5 million worth of makeup from Jeffree Star’s warehouse. 

In a video posted on Tuesday that quickly ascended to the top video on YouTube’s trending videos, Star warned viewers that there would be “no humor, no sarcasm” that’s typical of his content. 

“The things that I am about to tell you have been my nightmare that I’ve been living with for a few weeks now,” Star said, after announcing that his unreleased concealer had been leaked over the weekend and discussing the launch of his Blue Blood collection. “You guys probably noticed that I was very silent on social media leading up to the launch.” 

He explained that in addition to struggling with his birth mother’s declining health, he was dealing with the “horrific” theft of a massive amount of product from one of his stock and shipping warehouses.

On Mar. 17, the night after Star uploaded the reveal video for his latest collection, over $2.5 million worth of cosmetics were stolen. The thieves pulled it off by cutting a hole in the roof and then using the back door, according to TMZ, which seems to be a trend in makeup heists.

“This is the biggest theft I have ever experienced in my entire career,” he said in his most recent video. “This is the biggest hit as a brand. I’m still shocked about the entire thing.” 

Over the weekend, someone posted a photo of an unreleased concealer, presumably stolen during the warehouse heist. Star says he’s been “waiting for this moment,” since it’s been about two weeks since the burglary. 

“These people were professional,” Star said, noting that a former employee could have tipped off the thieves. “I fully believe it was an inside job.”

The stolen products include thousands of highlighter palates, thousands of lipliners, and an entire shade of concealer  — the beauty guru said he only has a few hundred boxes of C5 left. 

The leaked photos that surfaced online, suspiciously, show boxes of unreleased concealer in C5. 

Star then said in addition to hiring a private investigative team, he’s working with law enforcement and the FBI to figure out who’s selling the stolen product on the black market. He also said that he’s found bundles of his stolen product on buying and selling apps like Poshmark.

He kept fans updated on Twitter, announcing that a “major player” had been arrested. 

I never knew I’d be spending my Monday night with the FBI tracking down black market makeup sellers.

— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) April 2, 2019

I don’t even know where to begin right now.. The last few weeks have been so mentally exhausting but I’m so grateful for all the law enforcement & FBI agents who have been working on my #Concealer heist 🙏🏻 A major player who has been selling my stolen product has been arrested.

— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) April 3, 2019

Good morning to everyone except the black market 💙

— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) April 3, 2019

Surprisingly, this isn’t the first great makeup heist to hit Southern California.

In May 2017, $4.5 million worth of cosmetics were stolen from the Anastasia Beverly Hills warehouse just outside of Los Angeles by also sawing through the roof. The burglars got away with 100,000 boxes of eyeshadow, which were presumably also sold online.

But like Refinery 29 points out, the warehouse burglaries highlight a greater problem in the beauty industry: The black market hurts fans, too. 

If you aren’t buying products from an authorized seller, you could be purchasing counterfeits, which aren’t bound by the rigorous testing and strict regulations like the rest of the beauty industry. While Star, and other retailers, get their products from cosmetics labs, counterfeit products have tested positive for human waste and nasty bacteria. And according to the FBI, officials have found disturbing amounts of carcinogens like arsenic, beryllium, and cadmium in seized counterfeit makeup, in addition to “dangerous levels” of bacteria and aluminum. 

As Star says in his video, his products are created with specific formulas in a controlled lab environment. By buying his collection off a black market seller, you might end up with a counterfeit and could experience rashes, allergic reactions, and eye infections.

“If you see any stolen makeup, please report it,” Star concluded in his video. “My social media is always open if you want to share anything that you see for us to track down or investigate.”

Jussie Smollett’s lawyer suggested that the Nigerian men who claim the actor hired them to stage a hate crime could have been wearing ‘whiteface’

Jussie Smollett’s lawyer suggested that the Nigerian men who claim the actor hired them to stage a hate crime could have been wearing ‘whiteface’

Tina Glandian, the attorney for Jussie Smollett.

“TODAY” show

  • Jussie Smollett’s lawyer Tina Glandian defended her client on NBC’s “TODAY” show on Thursday morning.
  • “TODAY” host Savannah Guthrie questioned the inconsistencies in Smollett’s story, saying he first said white men had attacked him in the January incident in Chicago.
  • Two Nigerian brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, claim Smollett hired them to stage the hate crime, which happened in Chicago two months ago
  • Glandian, however, stood by her client’s claim that he was a victim, saying the brothers may have worn “whiteface” during the attack.

Jussie Smollett’s lawyer Tina Glandian suggested that two Nigerian brothers who claim the “Empire” actor hired them to stage a hate crime two months ago may have been wearing “whiteface” during the incident.

Glandian appeared on NBC’s “TODAY” show on Thursday morning, two days after all charges were dropped against Smollett, who had been accused of staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself in Chicago in January.

Chicago Police and Mayor Rahm Emanuel have expressed outrage over the dropped charges, and the prosecutor who dropped the charges said he still believes Smollett is guilty. President Donald Trump called the dropped charges an “embarrassment,” and said FBI and the Justice Department would review the case.

Glandian, however, stood by Smollett’s claim that he was a victim, saying “nothing improper was done” before the charges were dropped.

“TODAY” host Savannah Guthrie questioned the inconsistencies in the case, noting that when Smollett first reported the attack he said the suspects were white.

Glandian told Guthrie that Smollett had only seen one of the attackers, and almost all of the suspect’s face was covered with a ski mask, except for the space around his eyes.

“He did tell police that he — from what we saw, he thought it was pale skin or white or pale skin, was I think what he said,” she said of Smollett’s report.

She went on to suggest that the brothers, who claim Smollett hired them to stage the attack — Ola and Abel Osundairo — had worn whiteface during a Batman sketch posted online.

“Obviously, you can disguise that. You can put makeup on. There is, interestingly enough, a video … I think police had minimal investigation in this case, it took me only five minutes to Google,” she said. “I was looking up the brothers, and one of the videos that showed up actually was of the brothers in whiteface doing a Joker monologue with white makeup on him. So, it’s not — it’s not implausible.”

Prosecutors said earlier this week that charges were dropped against Smollett after he forfeited his $10,000 bail and they reviewed the case and the actor’s recent community service at Jesse Jackson’s nonprofit.

Smollett spent 16 hours volunteering at the civil-rights and social justice organization, Rainbow PUSH Coalition, between Saturday and Monday speaking with visiting parents and students, and working in its bookstore.

In a statement about his volunteering, Rainbow PUSH Coalition said Smollett is a member of the organization and that the community service was not court-ordered.

The Chicago Police Department released police reports in the Smollett case in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from WGN Chicago.

Shortly after the redacted reports were posted online, Chicago Police were barred from releasing more information about the case because of a court order, according to ABC reporter Josh Margolin.

Meghan Markle’s baby shower guests were treated to $700 worth of gifts

Meghan Markle’s baby shower guests were treated to $700 worth of gifts

Guests at Meghan Markle’s lavish baby shower in New York City left the intimate gathering with high-end gift bags filled with luxe leather tote bags filled with the royal’s favorite products. 

The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex celebrated her impending arrival last week in The Mark Hotel’s incredible Grand Penthouse Suite, which costs a staggering $75,000 per night. High-profile guests were seen leaving the fete, and they didn’t go empty-handed. 

According to People, Serena Williams, Amal Clooney, and Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney were among the attendees who were gifted Cuyana leather totes that were filled to the brim with products, much like Oscars swag bags. 

Treated like royalty: Guests at Meghan Markle’s lavish baby shower in New York City reportedly took home $700 worth of thank you gifts 

The totes, which retail for $175-$195 depending on style, included $67 Jo Malone Green Tomato Leaf scented candles, $65 Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder, and $81 Susanne Kaufmann Body Butter.

They also reportedly featured products from Rodin and Jessica Alba’s company Honest Beauty. 

Brands often send celebrities free gifts in the hopes of getting press, and with Meghan’s shower making headlines around the world, it’s likely that companies were more than willing to offer up products for the guests’ gift bags. 

Guests, which included designer Misha Nonoo and celebrity trainer Taryn Toomey, also scored some new luggage at the fete.  

On the day of Meghan’s shower, about 17 Away suitcases were delivered to The Mark Hotel, each of which cost $225.

Added touches: The totes featured $67 Jo Malone Green Tomato Leaf scented candles

Daniel Martin, Meghan’s longtime friend and makeup artist, dished about the February 20 festivities in a new interview with People.

‘It was exactly what she needed, and it was a reunion for all of us, too, who hadn’t seen each other since the wedding,’ he said.

Though photographers were stationed outside The Mark Hotel — and also caught Meghan and company at The Polo Bar the night before — what went on inside has been mostly kept hush-hush.

‘Snow was falling outside, and it was so cozy — we all sat on couches or on the floor and told stories and caught up,’ Daniel revealed. ‘It was like going to a family reunion.’

Another guest who spoke to People anonymously added: ‘It was all baby talk. She was getting tons of advice.’

More gifts: Guests were also given $225 Away suitcases, which were delivered to The Mark Hotel ahead of Meghan’s shower

Daniel also shared a photo from Meghan’s shower, showing the cute rattle, bib, and stork-shaped cookies put out for attendees. 

Fellow guest Gayle King opened up about the intimate shower on CBS This Morning, revealing she and other attendees were taught how to arrange flowers at the party. Meghan then donated those arrangements to various charities.

The anchor also said that she could not reveal the gift that she purchased for the royal because the guest of honor did not open any of her presents, choosing instead to wait until she got back to London and was with Prince Harry.

With the royal just a few months away from her due date, there has been mounting speculation as to whether Meghan and Harry are expecting a girl or a boy.  

The Duchess reportedly told her friends at the shower that she is pregnant with a baby boy, according to Us Weekly

Nearest and dearest: Many of Meghan’s closest friends who attended her wedding were there, including Amal Clooney (left) and Serena Williams (right) 

Goodies! Daniel recently shared a picture of the cookies from Meghan’s star-studded baby shower in New York, saying he had ‘such an incredible day celebrating’

Lavish: The baby shower took place in the Penthouse Suite at The Mark Hotel, which is widely reported to be the most expensive per-night hotel room in the U.S.

However, many have speculated that she is having a girl based on the decor at her extravagant baby shower. 

Decorations for the shower started arriving the day before the bash, and there was plenty of pink — from the blush-colored roses to the cotton candy machine that was brought into the hotel.  

Earlier this week, a video that emerged on social that appears to give a glimpse at the decorations inside the penthouse party.    

Royal fan account harry_meghan_updates shared a video on Instagram Stories, claiming that the short clip was actually captured inside the star-studded baby shower.

The video shows a dessert table that features plenty of sweet treats, including four macaron towers from Laduree, which cost a total of $460.

It’s a girl? The buffet featured stork cake pops, macaron towers, and miniature slices of carrot cake. The Instagram poster noted that a majority of the confections were pink 

Meghan’s close pals were treated to stork-shaped cake pops and miniature slices of carrot cake, as well as multiple cupcakes iced in pink and green frosting. 

Also seen in the video are the iced baby-themed cookies that Meghan’s longtime friend and makeup artist Daniel Martin shared photos of earlier this week.  

The crowning glory was a two-tiered cake, which featured a miniature paper cut out of Harry and Meghan, standing next to a stroller. 

The confection is believed to be the work of event designer Darcy Miller, who has been credited with putting together the lavish dessert buffet at the event.

It is unknown who filmed the clip, which the account reposted from another Instagram Story, but the location is tagged as The Mark Hotel, where the royal’s shower was held.

Special delivery! A huge bucket of pink roses was seen being delivered to The Mark Hotel ahead of Meghan’s shower, sparking rumors she is expecting a baby girl 

The plot thickens: Megan reportedly told guests at her shower that she and Harry are expecting a baby boy, but earlier this month she said it was a ‘surprise’ 

The video also includes several hashtags including #EarlierThisWeek, #Royal #BabyShower and, perhaps most noticeably, #Girl, with the account speculating that the mostly-pink color scheme of the event suggests Meghan and Harry are expecting a little princess.   

It’s also possible that she and Prince Harry are waiting until the day their royal baby is born to find out the gender.

Earlier this month, the Duchess of Sussex was captured talking to a guest about her unborn child at the Endeavor Awards.

The cost of Meghan’s New York baby shower 

Private jet from the UK to New York, round trip – $250,000  

The Mark Hotel Grand Penthouse Suite for two nights – $150,000 

Five nights in a one-bedroom suite at The Mark Hotel – $9,982.05 

Dinner for five at The Polo Bar – approx. $420 

Lunch at Cafe Bolud – approx. $78

Afternoon tea for two at Laduree – approx. $45 

Two Royal Protection officers – $14,213 

Harp player Erin Hill – $625 

17 Away carry-on suitcases – $3,825  

Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib – $379 

Two 10ft mandarin trees – approx. $280  

Lady Fleur roses – approx. $399.95  

Trek bicycle – approx. $609.99 

Carnival King cotton candy machine – $199.99

Repeat Roses – $1,750

Lewis Miller – $20,000

TOTAL: $503,656.98

‘We don’t know,’ she says in the clip shared by the royal fan Instagram account @harry_meghan_updates. ‘Yes, we decided to keep it a secret, and then that way… it’s one of those things, like, no matter what it is, it’s still going to be a surprise.’

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter recently stated that it is ‘royal philosophy’ to keep the baby’s gender a secret until the day of the birth.

‘There’s a belief that there are so few surprises left in life why not save the biggest one for the moment a child is born,’ she told Honey.nine.com. ‘This is not just a royal philosophy, many parents across the UK choose not to find out.’

Kate Middleton and Prince William kept the sexes of all three of their children a secret until after they were born, and they were public about their decision not to even learn the gender of their babies before they were born.

While this is typically a standard rule for members of the royal family, Queen Elizabeth II has not made it an official ban.

From shunning nude tights to sporting dark nail polish, Meghan is known to be a royal rule breaker, and it’s possible that she knows the sex of her baby but is keeping mum.

Victoria also stated that baby showers are typically not held, but the Duchess has already broken this protocol with her luxurious and highly-publicized shower that dominated headlines last week.

According to the royal commentator, the royals are ‘very wealthy’ and a ‘lavish baby shower would be seen as highly inappropriate’ because ‘there’s nothing they can’t go out and buy themselves.’

Last month, bookmakers were forced to suspend the market on the gender of Meghan and Harry’s baby after an overwhelming number of bets were placed on the royal couple welcoming a girl.

The pregnant Duchess is due to give birth to her first child with Prince Harry in April, but the gender of the baby is not yet known.
