ICYMI, 2017's top fashion trends included a few can't-miss tributes to grandmotherly style: Victorian collars, couch-y floral prints, and lace that says "doily" more than "boudoir," to name a few.

Ladies! Summer is quickly approaching, and the warmer the weather gets, the shorter everyone's hair seems to go along with it.

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato first met as child actors, becoming not only costars but best friends on the kids' show Barney & Friends.

That changed on Monday, October 23, when they reunited and were photographed together for the first time in YEARS.

While Beyoncé's Instagram pregnancy announcement will probably go down in history as the most memorable twin baby announcement of all time (and not just because people lost their minds over it), she's far from the only celebrity to announce double baby news this month.
