Jared Leto: The Internet’s Latest Darling

Last weekend, Thirty Seconds to Mars star Jared Leto posted a picture of himself hugging a tree with the caption, “Tree huggin hippy? Guilty!” And just like that, the Internet went wild, editing the image to make it look like Jared is hugging everything from President Obama’s face to Angelina Jolie’s leg.

Now, a good meme can make your day. But these? They have the potential to make your whole week, especially now that you can create your very own #jaredhugginleto meme on the star’s official website. So congratulations, Jared Leto. You’ve inspired Internet gold. Bravo.

Emma Watson’s Next Gig: U.N. Ambassador

The newest addition to Emma Watson’s résumé? (And no, it’s not a Harry Potter reunion…) She’s been named the next Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women, a branch dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. The starlet will work with the HeForShe campaign, a women-led movement in which men are encouraged to speak out against inequalities faced by females.

“We are thrilled and honored to work with Emma, whom we believe embodies the values of U.N. Women,” Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the executive director of U.N. Women, said in a statement. “The engagement of young people is critical for the advancement of gender equality in the 21st century, and I am convinced that Emma’s intellect and passion will enable U.N. Women’s messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally.”

Emma and Phumzile aren’t the only excited ones. Marie Claire reports that after the announcement, the U.N.’s website shut down due to an influx of traffic. Quite the accomplishment for her first day on the job.

Chopped: Kristen Stewart Rocks a New Pixie Cut

Following in the footsteps of A-list counterparts JLaw and Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart has chopped off her long locks – and it looks good.

The Twilight star and former sweetheart of Robert Pattinson debuted her perfectly messy pixie cut yesterday at Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 show in Paris. Her shorter style also sported a hint of orange, said to be the result of a grown-out dye job from the actress’s upcoming role in American Ultra.

Shocking? Maybe if it were Jennifer Aniston, but from Kristen Stewart, we’ve come to expect the unexpected.

For a Good Cause: Anne Hathaway Joins Charity-Sign Trend

A few weeks ago, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield took their power-couple awesomeness to the next level by warding off paparazzi not with hoods and fingers, but with signs that listed their favorite charities. And now, it seems they’ve started a trend. Over the long weekend, Anne Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman stepped out in New York City with similar cardboard cutouts.

The French Countryside = Now Cheaper Than Disney

It’s time you brought some dignity back to the family vacay. Instead of shelling out thousands on Mickey Mouse everything, unwind in a castle. Yes, a real-life castle. And did we mention it’s cheaper? 

The 17th-century French Château de Sorel is just 47 miles outside of Paris (hello, Champs-Élysées and macarons). After you shop ’til you drop in the city, head back and settle into the country way of life. Fish private streams and explore nearby villages by bike. Your castle getaway even comes complete with moats and well-manicured gardens.

And the best part? The entire property sleeps 15 for $600 a night (a.k.a. everyone chips in $40). Cue the champagne.

Drumroll, Please: Marc by Marc Jacobs Contest Winners Announced

In April, Marc Jacobs set out to find new models via Twitter. And yesterday, the nine (beyond-lucky) winners were revealed in his Fall 2014 campaign. The shots are bold, energetic, and beautiful, but warning: they will induce major jealousy. For all of us non-winners? I say we hold a virtual rain dance in hopes of more social media casting calls in the future.

Vogue Puts Cara Delevingne to Sleep – Literally

It looks like this year’s most-talked-about model, Cara Delevingne, is neglecting her beauty sleep. The stunner fell asleep not once, but twice the day of her much-anticipated Vogue profile.

First, she showed up late to her interview because, as she told writer Plum Sykes, she never wakes up more than ten minutes before she has to go anywhere. Then, as the two were getting massages, Cara proceeded to snooze again, leaving Plum waiting in the lobby.

In her defense, she was just dubbed the face of Topshop, and her schedule is jam-packed with appearances, photo shoots, and parties. But maybe before her next interview, she should grab a triple shot of espresso.

Windsor Is Coming: Queen Elizabeth Visits Game of Thrones Set

Yesterday, Queen Elizabeth made an appearance on the Game of Thrones set in Belfast, Northern Ireland. But much to fans’ discontent? She didn’t sit on the most famous seat in the Seven Kingdoms: the Iron Throne. With Kit Harington (Jon Snow) smiling and on-screen queen Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) encouraging her, all signs looked good, and it would have been the icing on the set-tour cake. Yet, sorry Twitter – epic memes are not in our future here.

To her credit, when you’re the Queen, you have every right to be choosy.

Lupita Nyong’o Adds Vogue Cover Girl to Resume

You already know Lupita Nyong’o from her Oscar-winning performance in 12 Years a Slave and her spot-on red-carpet style. And, now? You’ll be seeing her grace the cover of Vogue, too.

For her July 2014 cover shoot, the actress traveled to Marrakesh, Morocco where she was photographed by Mikael Jansson in everything from Prada and Rodarte to Proenza Schouler and Jonathan Saunders. In the accompanying interview, the 31-year-old star talks about her sudden rise to fame, saying, “It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life. People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognizing me – before I recognized them!”

Now, this is one cover girl I can get behind.

Shoe Envy: Prada Unveils New Custom Collection

We all know the story of Cinderella’s shoes. Now, with the help of Prada, a life-changing pair might just be in your future, too.

That’s right – the adored luxury house has just announced a made-to-order program where shoe addicts can create their own pumps and peep-toes, choosing everything from their preferred finish (think Saffiano leather) to the color of their shoe box. Options for sole color, heel height, and shoe shade are endless, and you can even add a monogram.

The service will be available at all Prada stores with prices starting at $745. Meaning, it looks like I’ll be putting my July rent on hold.
