Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt Reignite Dating Rumors at SAG Awards

Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt reignited dating rumors for the nth time as they were spotted getting cozy at the 2020 SAG Awards on Sunday.

The two first sparked romance rumors last year after working together in an advertisement for Breitling watches. Charlize, however, revealed that she’s single during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February 2019.

Brad and Charlize crossed paths once again at the ceremony, where they were both nominated for awards.

Brad Pitt took home the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and gave a shout out to Margot Robbie’s feet, Margaret Qualley’s feet, and Dakota Fanning’s feet.

Charlize, on the other hand, was up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for Bombshell but lost to Renee Zellweger for Judy.

Surprisingly, the 44-year-old actress wasn’t wearing Dior. She instead wore a custom two-piece look from Givenchy Haute Couture collection.

Her outfit included a crystal-embellished sleeveless crop top, which allowed her to flaunt her toned arms and show a glimpse of her midriff. She also flashed some leg in a black high-waisted floor-sweeping skirt that features a center slit and a belted waist.

Exuding modern glamour, hairstylist Adir Abergel styled her blonde pixie sleek and parted in the middle. He attached a $15,500 Tiffany & Co. Victoria Line diamond bracelet down the center part to somehow cover Charlize’s grown-in roots.

Makeup artist Kate Lee created a barely-there makeup look for the actress. She applied nude eyeshadow, mascara, nude lipstick, and complementary blush. Celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik painted her nails black to match her ensemble.

To add extra sparkle to the look, Charlize accessorized with a selection of diamond jewelry. She wore a pair of diamond hoops, Maria Tash ear studs, bracelets, and a selection of rings, handpicked by stylist Leslie Fremar.

A pair of black satin platform sandals, which flaunted her foot tattoo, rounded out Charlize’s look.

How did Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt Meet?

Charlize and Brad met in 2018 while filming an ad campaign for Breitling, a Swiss luxury watchmaker.

In January 2019, an insider exclusively told In Touch: “Brad and Charlize got along very well during their shoot for Breitling watch campaign early last year, there was definitely more of a connection between them than ever before. There’s always been sparks, but neither of them acted on them.”

He added that the two started to gain “some momentum” while working on the advertisement. “But Brad was dealing with Angie and the messy breakup, so again, nothing was pursued,” the source continued.

There were also reports that the two met through Charlize’s ex, Sean Penn.

Brad and Charlize’s alleged romance

Charlize and Brad’s relationship reportedly began around Christmas of 2018. A source told The Sun: “They have been casually seeing each other for nearly a month now. They’ve been friends for some time—ironically through Sean—but things have developed.”

On January 12, 2019, the rumored couple reportedly dated after attending separate movie screenings. Brad went to watch his executive produced film If Beale Street Could Talk at a private house in Hollywood Hills, while Charlize was a special guest at the screening of Roma in LA’s Chateau Marmont.

The insider told The Sun that after the screening, Brad met up with Charlize at Chateau Marmont. “Brad came over to Chateau Marmont afterward, changed his outfit and joined Charlize in a corner of the bar. She was on a vodka cocktail, while he stuck to mineral water.”

“Brad seemed in a really good place. They both looked really happy. They were ridiculously touchy-feely and his arm was around her back. At one point he winked at her,” the source added.

Brad and Charlize are just friends

In another report, People and Entertainment Tonight said that the two are not romantically involved and are just friends.

An insider told Entertainment Tonight: “They enjoy each other’s company and connect on many levels. Brad and Charlize have a lot of mutual friends and share their love of acting, but neither of them is ready for a serious relationship right now.”

“They are both very single at the moment so it’s no surprise people are talking romance. They truly would make a Hollywood power couple, but at this point, they’re friends,” the source added.

The insider also mentioned that Brad “isn’t looking for an actress as a lifetime partner. He tried that route already, and while he loved both Jen [Aniston] and Angelina [Jolie] very much, and he grew tremendously as a person with both women, he is ready for something different.”

The source continued: “He is all about his career and his children. He is working on several projects and spends every moment he can with his kids.”

Another source told People: “They have not been out together recently, and were never dating. Reports of them being involved romantically are false.”

Charlize denies dating speculations

In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2019, Charlize once again denied rumors that she dated Brad.

She’s on the show to promote Bombshell together with co-stars Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman.

When Nicole said she did not date Brad, Charlize said: “But I apparently did. I had an entire relationship that I didn’t even know about.”

How Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas Met: Married 20 Years

Hollywood is known for its short-lived marriages and messy divorces. However, there are other celebrity couples that have beaten the odds and have remained together for decades. They got married at the Plaza Hotel in New York on November 18, 2000.

One of the few Hollywood power couples who managed to stay in love after many years is Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas.

On Sunday, Catherine attended the 2020 SAG awards to support her husband, who received a nomination for his comedy series, The Kominsky Method.

The 50-year-old actress dazzled in a silver metallic dress from Julien Macdonald’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection.

She showed off her figure in the lamé gown that’s heavily embellished with Swarovski crystals. It also features a center thigh-high split and a deep plunging V-neckline that stops right above the navel.

Catherine, who has an enormous collection of shoes, looked youthful with her shiny raven hair worn in a half-up, half-down style, cascading in beautiful waves over her shoulder, courtesy of hairstylist Chad Wood.

Makeup artist Vincent Oquendo used Maybelline makeup to further beautify the actress. She wore winged eyeliner, mauve lip shade with a hint of gloss, nude eyeshadow, and matching blush.

Stylist Kelly Johnson added an extra dose of sparkle to Catherine’s look with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. She accessorized with a pair of dangling diamond earrings and two diamond rings.

For her feet, she wore a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti metallic silver sandals. They feature crisscross ankle straps and two crystal studs at the toe straps.

Hollywood’s iconic power couple

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are undeniably one of Hollywood’s most iconic power couples.

Michael Douglas is the first child of actors Kirk Douglas and Diana Dill. He had his first TV breakthrough role in 1969 in the CBS TV Playhouse special, The Experiment. His film career started in the late 1960s, and his performance in Hail, Hero! earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Most Promising Male Newcomer.

Since then, his career took off. He starred in a number of TV shows and movies and also produced films, including One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which won him an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1975. He also starred in hit movies such as Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct, Disclosure, and Wall Street for which he won an Oscar for Best Actor.

His role in the 2013 movie Behind the Candelabra received critical acclaim and earned him SAG, Emmy, and Golden Globe awards. His most recent movies include Ant-Man and Avengers: Endgame.

Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has established herself in Hollywood with roles in The Mask of Zorro, Entrapment, Traffic, and Chicago for which she won Oscar and BAFTA awards for Best Supporting Actress.

How did Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas meet?

In a 2001 interview with CNN’s Larry King, Catherine said that they met during the Deauville Film Festival in 1996, just a year after Michael’s separation from his first wife Diandra Luker.

Michael was promoting A Perfect Murder, while Catherine was promoting The Mask of Zorro. “I had been told Michael Douglas wanted to meet me. I was a little nervous because I didn’t quite know what he wanted to meet about.” She said she saw him in the lobby of the hotel but he just walked right past her.

Later that evening, their mutual friends Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith introduced them. “[Michael] asked very gentlemanly if he could sit next to me at a very long table at the dinner for the Zorro premiere,” Catherine recalled.  

In a 2016 interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, Michael admitted that he almost blew his chance with Catherine because of a pick-up line. “I said to her after about half an hour, ‘You know, I’m going to be the father of your children.’ It sounded good, and she said, ‘You know, I’ve heard a lot about you and I’ve seen a lot about you, and I think it’s time I say goodnight.’”

“[I] got her some flowers and an apology—anyway, so I guess it worked out OK,” he continued.

Michael and Catherine share the same birthday, September 25. He is 25 years her senior, but age doesn’t matter for the power couple.

Michael and Catherine survived difficult times

They have been married for 20 years now, and just like other marriages, the ride hasn’t been smooth for the two. Catherine and Michael have also endured hardships in their relationship.

In 2010, Michael Douglas was diagnosed with throat cancer. After weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, Michael was tumor-free but not completely cured.

Michael’s illness took a toll on Catherine. After his treatment, Catherine checked herself into a mental facility to receive treatment for bipolar II disorder. “When you get sideswiped like that [by Michael’s illness], it’s an obvious trigger for your balance to be a little off—not sleeping, worry, stress,” she said in 2013.

In October 2013, Michael admitted that he never had throat cancer. He was actually diagnosed with tongue cancer and he hid the diagnosis to protect his career.

“The surgeon said, ‘Let’s just say it’s throat cancer,’” he told Samuel L Jackson for a segment on This Morning’s Male Cancer Awareness Week. He added: “You can’t cancel a worldwide European tour, junket thing and say I don’t feel well … what’s the problem?”

In 2013, Catherine again received help to control her bipolar disorder. Three months later, in August 2013, a rep for Catherine told CNN that Catherine and Michael are taking a break from their relationship. “Catherine and Michael are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.”

They reconciled after a few months, and in a 2015 interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Michael said that reconciliation only works “if both of you are willing to do it. It can’t be a one-way street. I’m crazy about her… I think every couple has their difficult times.”

He added: “The only problem is, as you well know, we’re all in the public eye and it tends to get a little more exposed than most. But we’re back, stronger than ever.”

Rosario Dawson’s Net Worth: Black Actresses Are Underpaid

Best known for appearing in movies such as ‘Rent,’ ‘Grindhouse’ and ‘Sin City,’ Rosario Dawson has an estimated net worth of $16 million. However, in a 2015 interview with MTV News, she made clear that women aren’t paid enough.

“I’ve worked on a lot of projects where the male lead or even the male and the female lead will get paid millions of dollars and then everyone else gets SAG minimum payment,” she said.

“You’re privileged to work with this director and these actors, but it’s a Catch-22. You need to make money so you need to have work, and to be able to get work you have to get to a place where your name means something and you make these sacrifices — like, ‘OK, I’ll do this for nothing, but hopefully the movie will do well and it will help me out later.’ So even talking about equity, there’s a lot that comes in between it”.

“If it was just women getting paid less than men then that would just be one thing, but even among women, especially according to race and privilege, there are a lot of women who are getting paid more than even some men are,” the actress noted.

“It’s a very complex situation when you think about what are black women making in comparison to white women, what are Latin women making, what are Asian women making in comparison, and it gets even more convoluted.”

Just one woman of color (Colombian-American actress Sofia Vergara) made Forbes’ 2019 list of the 10 highest-paid actresses.

In January 2019, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s girlfriend wore a random look from her own fashion label Studio One Eighty Nine (Studio 189) to the premiere of Miss Bala at Regal LA Live Stadium in Los Angeles.

On January 22, 2020, Deadline reported that Rosario Dawson will play the lead role of Alma in DMZ, a pilot from Warner Bros. Television for HBO Max. The series is based on the DC comic book series from Brian Wood and will be helmed by Ava DuVernay who will executive produce alongside showrunner and writer Roberto Patino.

In November 2018, the Sundance Jury Prize winner also attended the Eva Longoria Foundation Dinner Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.

One of the highest-paid black actresses in the world, Rosario was reportedly paid $1 million for her portrayal of an HIV-positive heroin addict and stripper, Mimi Marquez, in the 2005 American musical drama “Rent”.

In April 2015, the American actress attended the premiere of Netflix’s Marvel’s Daredevil at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The then 35-year-old American actress, singer, and writer sported a colorful dress from the Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2015 collection.

How Reese Witherspoon and Beyonce Started New-Found Friendship

It’s quite surprising that Reese Witherspoon and Beyonce weren’t friends in the past. They have been in the industry for many years now, and they have built successful careers both as entrepreneurs and entertainers.

Moreover, they also have the same circle of friends in Hollywood. It wasn’t until this year, however, that the two built a new power friendship.

Reese and Beyonce’s 2020 Golden Globe encounter

It all started at this year’s Golden Globe ceremony. Dressed in a custom Roland Mouret gown with Tiffany & Co. jewelry, Reese Witherspoon mustered up the courage to ask power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z for some of their champagne after their table ran out of water.

Of course, the two gladly shared their Armand de Brignac champagne.

Reese’s The Morning Show co-star Jennifer Aniston later posted a photo on her Instagram story, showing herself, Reese and producer Kristin Hahn raising their glasses.

She captioned the photo: “Reese!? This is one of the many reasons I love you. We ran out of water at our table. So naturally, she asked Jay Z and Beyonce for a glass of their champagne.”

Four days after the encounter, Reese received a case of Armand de Brignac champagne from Bey and Jay-Z. The package came with a signed note from the couple that read, “More water, from J & B.”

Reese shared her reaction to her Instagram story. She also posted a video with her mom, Betty, opening a bottle at 11:30 in the morning.

This came just right after Reese flew back to Los Angeles from New York, where she attended the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Wearing a floral-embroidered dress from Andrew GN’s Autumn/Winter collection, Reese presented Laura Dern with the Best Supporting Actress award for her work both in Marriage Story and Little Women.

She teamed the monochrome outfit with Chopard jewels and a pair of Saint Laurent ‘Zoe’ pumps in cream leather with contrasting black ankle straps.

Jay-Z owns 100 percent of Armand de Brignac, also known as Ace of Spades, after buying the champagne brand in 2014. Prior to acquiring the label, Jay-Z introduced Ace of Spades in his music video for Show Me What You Got in 2006.

Reese receives Ivy Park collection from Beyonce

To celebrate their burgeoning friendship, Beyonce sent another surprise package to Reese just a week after sending her the champagne.

The actress shared an Instagram video of herself wheeling a huge package down her driveway. She’s trying to guess what’s inside the box with her mom, who actually thought that it might be a motorcycle.

After unsnapping the cover, Reese slipped inside the box and revealed that Bey sent her a ton of clothes from her new Ivy Park x Adidas collection. She even modeled some of the outfits in the video, which she captioned: “Does this officially make me the newest member of the #Beyhive?” She added: “Thank you, @Beyonce for the #IvyPark swag!”

Putting aside Bey’s activewear clothing collection, Reese graced the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet dressed in a floor-length embellished Celine gown.

The 43-year-old actress was at the event to represent HBO’s Big Little Lies, which was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Reese sparkled in the black column dress adorned with black sequins, beads, and crystals. It also has a silver crystal-embellished looped shoulder strap that created an asymmetric neckline and a cutout across the chest. Her legs were on display as the dress also features a sexy thigh-high split.

Reese looked beautiful as always. Makeup artist Molly Stern applied mascara, eyeliner, a hint of brown eyeshadow, a swipe of red lipstick, and matching blush. Hairstylist Lona Vigi simply styled Reese’s hair straight and swept over to one side.

Stylist Petra Flannery added more sparkle to Reese’s look with diamond jewelry by Harry Winston. She wore emerald-cut diamond studs, a Diamond Links bracelet, a Crossover Diamond ring, and a River Diamond ring.  

For her feet, she wore a pair of Celine sandals in black suede and metallic silver leather. Charlize Theron wore the same pair at the Critics’ Choice Awards last week.

The embroidery work on her metallic bustier top was made up of 4,750 multi-color sequins and beads. It reportedly took 225 hours of work to create.

While unfortunately not visible due to the length of her long white skirt, her Evita platform sandals are available in a wide range of colors at Matches Fashion, Mytheresa, Farfetch, Net-A-Porter, and Bergdorf Goodman.

Millie Bobby Brown Nails Androgynous Look in Cleavage-Baring Louis Vuitton Dress Suit

She may only be 15, but Millie Bobby Brown is well on her way to earning style icon status.

The Stranger Things star graced the gray carpet at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday dressed in a pristine white outfit by Louis Vuitton. Do you think her bridal look is too sexualized for a 15-year-old?

Speaking of her outfit, Millie told People: “I definitely wanted to go with a masculine but feminine look and [Louis Vuitton] got it just right.”

 “It’s changed drastically. It’s also my forming years of being a teenager. My hair’s grown, everything,” she said of her career.

When asked about how she’s evolved both as an actor and a young woman, Millie said: “I think I’m becoming stronger as each year comes. It’s difficult as I’m still growing so I haven’t evaluated that yet.”

Sarah Hyland Throws Shade At Modern Family After Lack Of Airtime

Haley Dunphy, Sarah Hyland’s character in Modern Family, has been noticeably missing from the past few episodes of the ABC sitcom’s final season.

One of Sarah’s followers asked the actress, and Sarah had an interesting answer that caused quite a stir. While some thought that it was a playful response, others were convinced that Sarah threw shade at Modern Family for her lack of airtime in the show.

A fan tweeted: “@Sarah_Hyland Why has Haley been missing from so many episodes of “Modern Family” this season?”

Sarah replied: “Apparently I’ve been busy with the twins,” with a shoulder shrug emoji. It’s a clear reference to her character, who gave birth to twins, Poppy and George, in the season 10 finale last year.

Sarah Hyland Surprised by Character’s Death

In last week’s episode, Sarah’s on-screen grandfather Frank Dunphy (played by Fred Willard) died.

Like the fans, Sarah was also surprised by the unexpected death of the character. She took to Instagram to share her reaction to the “Legacy” episode, and she seemed confused as to why her character wasn’t at the funeral.

She said, “So I don’t read scripts of episodes of Modern Family that I’m not in, so I just found out that my grandpa’s dead along with all of you. I still feel special.”

She added: “I guess I should’ve put a spoiler alert for Grandpa Frank dying, but I was just caught off guard. Like, as his granddaughter, you’d think I’d be invited to the funeral.“

Sarah Hyland Credits Modern Family Success to People Behind the Scene

While she appears to be left out, Sarah was on hand at the TCA panel for Modern Family on January 8.

She credited people behind the camera for the success of the series, which debuted in 2009.

The cast of Modern Family at the 17th Annual SAG Awards on January 30, 2011The cast of Modern Family at the 17th Annual SAG Awards in Los Angeles on January 30, 2011

“I think that the camera operators and our focus pullers are really amazing at being able to connect to the audience. The format in which this show was filmed in that mockumentary style, I think it makes the audience feel like they are in the home when we give looks to the camera, the push-ins and the wraps that the camera operators and pullers do.”

“I think, it’s so genius that the camera is like a thirteenth character. It’s an additional cast member. I think that is what really draws the audience in and makes them feel like they are not just watching a family but they are a part of it,” she added.

Now in its 11th and final season, Modern Family will air its final episode on April 8.

What’s Next for Sarah Hyland?

Sarah Hyland is set to executive produce and star in a new ABC series, written by Emily Gordon. It is said to be a semi-autobiographical project inspired by Emily and Sarah’s real-life experiences.

Just recently, she attended the 2020 SAG Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old actress stood out in a sea of floor-length gowns, wearing a lilac floral mini from Italian label Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini’s Spring 2020 collection.

Styled by Brad Goreski, Sarah broke the leg or cleavage rule in the floral-printed high-low frock, which features a plunging neckline and a dangerously short bubble skirt. The lilac number also has a large bow detail on the waist and a long flowing train for added drama.

Hairstylist Riawna Capri pulled Sarah’s tresses away from her face into a sleek ponytail.

Makeup artist Denika Bedrossian used Cover Girl cosmetics to highlight Sarah’s features. She filled in her eyebrows for a more defined look, used pink eyeshadow with glitter dust, applied a swipe of mauve lip gloss, and added a hint of color on her cheeks.

Known for her work on The Metrosexual (2007), Little Minx Exquisite Corpse: Come Wander with Me (2008) and America’s Next Top Model (2003), Denika Bedrossian also applied Pinky Goat false lashes to further accentuate her eyes.

For her accessories, Sarah wore a pair of Lorraine Schwartz lavender jade earrings, diamond band rings, and Ofira rings.

She then added extra inches to her 5’2” height with a pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Jonatina’ sandals. Available for purchase at Net-A-Porter and Nordstrom, they are made from metallic silver lizard-effect leather and feature clear PVC to create an illusion of floating ankle straps.

Brad Pitt Thanks Margot Robbie and Margaret Qualley’s Feet for SAG Award

Brad Pitt poked fun at director Quentin Tarantino’s foot obsession while accepting his award on stage at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

He made sure to thank Margot Robbie’s feet, Margaret Qualley’s feet, and Dakota Fanning’s feet during his speech.

The 56-year-old actor won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance as Cliff Booth in the movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The 2019 comedy-drama film features a scene in which Margaret Qualley’s “Pussycat” presses her smelly feet against Brad Pitt’s windscreen.

It is well-known that American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has a foot fetish. Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband could not help but make fun of the director when accepting the SAG Award for Best Supporting Actor.

“I want to thank my costars Leo, Margot Robbie, Margot Robbie’s feet, Margaret Qualley’s feet, Dakota Fanning’s feet… Seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes than the TSA.”

He also joked about his dating life at the beginning off his acceptance speech. Brad said, “I gotta add this to my Tinder profile.”

Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill both contain a ton of foot shots featuring Uma Thurman’s feet. Daily Mail even has photos of the director drinking champagne out of her Christian Louboutin stiletto heels.

In the 1996 movie From Dusk Till Dawn, Quentin Tarantino made a cameo where he sucked Salma Hayek’s toes.

“When I’m not working I set one alarm or I wake up on my own, if I have the luxury,” the 29-year-old “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star revealed.

“But when I’m working I set three alarms because I’m so afraid that I’m going to sleep through one or be late for work, even though it’s never happened. I always set three, and they’re 12 minutes apart.”

How to Choose the Right Basketball Shoe for You: Buying Tips

The single most important piece of gear every basketball player needs is a solid pair of basketball shoes to rock on the court. They impact your game by providing traction, comfort, and protection along with showcasing your style by creating custom made colors and designs.

Before you start searching for your perfect basketball shoe, you need to know what features you’re looking for that will compliment your playing style.

Are you a point guard or a post player? Do you want a shoe that provides ample ankle protection? Or a shoe a little less restrictive? Is your game more finesse and crafty or slashing and attacking? Does your shoe need to have a bouncy and soft cushion? Or will a firm, responsive cushion be better for your game?

All of these points will be critical to finding the right basketball shoe. It can be an overwhelming and time-consuming process, but never fear, we are here to help. In this basketball shoe buying guide, we’re going to prep you on what features you need to enhance your game and what specific styles you should consider as your go-to, game-time shoes.

By the time you’re done with this guide, you should know what shoes are right for your game; and before you know it, you’ll be on the court in the best basketball shoes in the market reaping the rewards of all your research and hard work.

Scouting Report: Basketball Shoe Buying Analysis

As every player knows, there’s a lot to look at when it comes to finding basketball shoes. You can’t simply base your decision off one thing; you have to find a shoe that is going to meet all of your needs – for your feet and your game.

What are your needs? That’s what we are going to break down in this section. We’re going to discuss your needs according to your player type and your needs according to shoe features.

Player Type

Before you make any decision on a shoe, it’s beneficial to understand your playing style and capabilities. Do you shoot from long range or are you attacking the rim? Is your game more agility and speed or power and aggression? Once you figure out your playing style, you can then search for needed features more easily.

  • If you’re a Finesse Player, you have the ball in your hands a lot. You have the ability to drive the lane, but usually, choose to take the jumper on the perimeter or find an open teammate for the assist. This type of player needs a comfortable shoe with quality cushioning and traction since you’ll be running to the floor and stopping on a dime and a tight secure fit so you don’t roll your ankle when you make cuts.
  • If you’re a Slasher Player, you like to get to the rim. Your athletic ability makes you one of the best athletes on the court. As a Slasher, you need a shoe that does everything well, but most importantly is ankle support to keep you from injuries and traction that allows you to explode.
  • If you’re a Power Player, you attack the basket in a straight line and muscle through your defender. You’re the player the defense thinks twice about stepping in front of to take a charge. Power Players are thick, fast players who need ankle protection and support along with cushioning and traction in their basketball shoes.
  • If you’re a Post Player, you’re the tallest player on the court who rarely leaves the paint and racks up rebounds, blocks, and dunks. These players are going to be using their body to get in position at all times which means you’ll need the most support a shoe can offer as well as protection to support the weight post players carry around.

Features

With your playing style in mind, it’s time to go into more detail about common features you’ll find in basketball shoes. Do you need maximum support in your shoes? What is traction? Are there different kinds of cushion systems? How should your basketball shoes fit and feel on your feet?

You already know your game, but when it comes to features, you have to know your feet.

Fit: Purchasing the right fit may seem like a no brainer but people actually get this wrong. Some people get shoes that are too small and end up feeling constricted and uncomfortable. Others get shoes that are too big which can lead to a rolled ankle or other injuries that could be avoided by getting the correct size. These reasons alone make getting the right shoe size essential to your game.

When you’re trying on shoes and deciding on what size to buy, try these two pointers to make sure you get it right.

  • Broad Toe Box. Your toes need to have plenty of room to breathe in your shoes. If you get shoes that are too shallow then you may end up with blisters, ingrown, or bruised toenails because of the pressure on your toes. All of the above can be uncomfortable and make it hard to play up to your standards because of your injured feet.
  • Thumb Space Clearance. It’s important that your toes are not rubbing the end of your basketball shoe. The best way to make sure this doesn’t happen to you is to follow the Thumb Test which is to give yourself a thumb’s worth of space between your toes and the end of your shoe. When you’re trying on your shoe, stand up and check to where your toe ends then put your thumb on the shoe to see if it passes the Thumb Test.

Traction: Basketball is a game of stopping, slashing, cutting, and other rapid and sudden movements. It’s crucial for a player to make these types of moves without the fear of sliding all over the court. If you’ve ever had a shoe with low-quality traction then you know how important it is to find the right shoe that allows you to stick to the court.

It's important to find shoes with traction that allows you to stick to the courtIt’s important to find shoes with traction that allows you to stick to the court

Shoe companies who specialize in basketball shoes have to great lengths in creating the best possible traction patterns. Each traction pattern tries to give basketball players the highest amount of grip possible in hopes to allow players to stop and change directions in an instant the entire time they’re on the court.

Traction is so critical to a good basketball shoe that it can define its performance on the court. It’s not a feature that visually stands out, but it greatly influences the way you can play your game. If the traction isn’t gripping the court and you can’t make any moves because you’re sliding on the court then you may think about getting another pair of shoes or implementing some of these tactics to make your traction better and last longer

  • More than one pair of basketball shoes. If you have several pairs then you can rotate them with each other. Or you can designate a practice shoe verse a game shoe. Either way, you won’t have one pair of shoes you solely rely on, which means you can prolong the traction life.
  • Purchase a stick pad or sprays. At most gyms, you’ll see stick pads at the scorer’s table to clean your shoes before you take the court. They clean the dust from the bottom of your shoes and give your shoes a little more stick.
  • Clean your shoes often. Every time you take the court, your shoes are collecting dust and this makes you more susceptible to slipping and sliding on the court. To fight this, try having a damp cloth at your bench so you can clean the bottom of your shoes at breaks during the game.

Cushion: Whether you’re a starter or a substitute, a big post player or small guard, a young hooper verse an older hooper, cushioning is important for every type of player. When you’re out on the court playing hard, you want to feel like you’re feet are getting the cushion they need every time you make a move.

Cushioning is important for every type of basketball playerCushioning is important for every type of basketball player

With so many different basketball player types, there come different cushioning systems. Cushioning isn’t a one-type fit for all. There are shoes with cushion that make you feel like walking on a slab of concrete while others provide cushion that feels like a soft pillow.

It’s about knowing what you need to feel comfortable in your shoes on the court and what allows you to play your best game. With so many shoe brands to consider, it’s good to know what sort of cushioning system makes sense for you and find it in your basketball shoes.

Support: Basketball is a game of jumping and cutting which requires maximum support from your basketball shoe. This support is especially true for your ankles. Ankle injuries are one of the most frequent injuries in basketball. Because of this, selecting a basketball shoe that provides your foot with support is crucial.

For the best support, you should avoid lower cut basketball shoes. This decision will shrink your shoe options, but it is for the right reason. Instead, take a look at a higher cut basketball shoe. This type of style will keep your ankle from moving around while you’re on the court which should increase ankle support and lower risk of injury. No one shoe can prevent an injury, but the additional support can reduce the amount of stress on your ankle.

If you can’t find a comfortable high cut basketball shoe or prefer a lower cut shoe, make sure you bring any ankle braces (if you wear them) and try those on with the shoes to ensure it all fits comfortably together.

All basketball players want to avoid future ankle injuries, but if you’re a basketball player with a history of weak ankles then move this category to the top of your priority list. Whether you are a rookie or a veteran, it’s wise to consider your options when it comes to your health and durability. A long-lasting career starts with your feet and the support your basketball shoes provide while you’re on the court.

Style: This is the least important feature for any basketball shoe, but unfortunately it’s the first thing that catches our eyes about a shoe. One of the biggest things to remember when it comes to the style of a basketball shoe is just because you like the way it looks doesn’t mean you will like the way it feels.

Always go for the other features first: fit, traction, comfort, and support. Then, when you have found the right basketball shoe, add your style to it. Blend your personality into your gear by customizing your shoes with different color schemes and designs. Rocking colorful, appealing, custom basketball shoes can help you stand out on the court and give you a boost in confidence every time you lace up your shoes.

Overall, don’t get distracted by brands, signature models by your favorite players, and marketing ads. Stay focused on what you need in your shoe and be sure your final shoe decision is one you enjoy wearing.

How to Spot Fake Birkenstock Sandals: 10 Ways to Tell if Birks are Real

Global footwear brand Birkenstock has seen a resurgence in popularity over the last few years.

According to BoF, the German company’s global revenue tripled to $800 million between 2012 and 2016. In 2017 alone, the company reportedly sold 25 million pairs of shoes.

That same year, Footwear News named Birkenstock the “Brand of the Year” during its 31st Achievement Awards.

Although they have been called “ugly sandals,” these thick-strapped, cork-soled sandals have developed a cult following.

Their popularity continues to increase and shows no signs of slowing down.

“Birks” first broke onto the high fashion scene in 2012, when Celine’s then-creative director Pheobe Philo sent the brand’s models down the runway in them.

Celine matched its Spring 2013 collection to fur-lined versions of the Birkenstock Arizona sandals, and we haven’t stopped seeing these shoes since.

Since the Celine debut, Birkenstock has teamed up with goth/grunge designer Rick Owens, Italian luxury label Valentino, and American clothing brand Opening Ceremony on several successful collaborations.

Below are some celebrity fans of these orthopedic, utilitarian sandals.

Birkenstock is one of the longest-running footwear companies in the world, with historic roots that can be traced as far back as 1774.

Throughout the mid-20th century, Birkenstock originally developed and sold orthopedic shoe inserts for factory-made shoes.

The company later decided to take their original contoured footbeds concept to the next level by creating comfy sandals.

The sixth-generation family-owned business has stayed true to its “commitment to the art of making orthopedically inspired shoes” for more than two centuries.

Birkenstock prides itself on comfort and quality. The brand follows strict manufacturing standards and makes use of carefully selected, high-quality materials from sustainable sources. This makes Birkenstock sandals “stand out from the flood of cheap products that dominate large parts of our consumer world today.”

Birkenstock is very much aware of the rise of illegal manufacturers producing replicas of its products. In 2016, the company pulled its products from Amazon after counterfeits and unauthorized retailers were discovered.

“The Amazon marketplace, which operates as an open market, creates an environment where we experience unacceptable business practices which we believe jeopardize our brand,” said Birkenstock US CEO David Khan in a letter obtained by CNBC. “This includes postings by sellers proven to have counterfeit Birkenstock products.”

Despite taking action against counterfeiters, there are still a lot of knock-off companies and distributors that sell fake Birkenstocks these days.

Fortunately, there are several ways to identify authentic Birkenstock shoes. Check them out below:

1. Check the seller

One sure way to avoid falling victim to scammers is to purchase directly from Birkenstock’s official website or through authorized dealers. You can check out the store locator provided by the shoe manufacturer headquartered in Neustadt, Germany.

You can also buy from reputable websites and established retailers like Zappos, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Farfetch.

2. Compare prices

Original Birkenstock sandals are usually priced between $29.95 and $99.95 for the classic styles, depending on the material.

The “Madrid” EVA, for example, retails for $29.95, while its Birko-Flor version is priced at $79.95.

One of the most copied Birkenstock styles is the Arizona. The EVA version can be purchased for $44.95, while other versions retail for $99.95.

The company also has limited collections, including one titled Metallic Stones, which retail from $99.95 to $110.

The more high-end versions, which are made from premium leather, suede, cowhide, and microfiber materials, are priced between $120 and $300.

Their Valentino collaboration sandals are priced at $495 for the black-and-white logo version and $460 for the red version.

Sandals from the Birkenstock x Rick Owens collaboration are discounted by at least 40% at Farfetch. From $429 – $572, you can now get them for only $258 – $344.

Rick Owens Birkenstock sandalsRick Owens Birkenstock sandals

Birks are quite pricey, so if you see a store selling them at prices that are too good to be true, chances are pretty high that they’re fake.

3. Check the packaging

The shoes should come in a blue Birkenstock shoebox properly labeled with the BIRKENSTOCK text logo on all sides, except for the bottom. There should also be a circular logo on top that carries over onto the back side of the box.

The original Birkenstock box should be properly labeled with logosThe original Birkenstock box should be properly labeled with logos

The front part should display an illustration of Birkenstock shoe styles with their respective names printed below each style.

The front side of a Birkenstock box shows illustration of different Birk modelsThe front side of a Birkenstock box shows an illustration of different Birk models

A paragraph about Birkenstock should be printed in both German and English on one side of the box.

One side of the box shows a short text about Birkenstock's historyOne side of the box shows a short text about Birkenstock’s history

On the opposite side, there should be a sticker label showing an illustration of the shoe style, the model name, color, material as well as your shoe size and foot width.

This information should match the shoe inside the box. The sticker label should also include a product code and EAN/UPC barcodes.

The opposite side of the box has a sticker label that contains information about the shoesThe opposite side of the box has a sticker label that contains information about the shoes

When opened, there should be text reading “TRADITION SINCE 1774” on the inside of the box lid. The interior should be printed with Birkenstock’s sole design and should have a size guide on the cover.

Sole-printed interior of the box with a size guide on the coverSole-printed interior of the box with a size guide on the cover

The packaging must come with a white logo-printed tissue wrapping and a tag indicating the material of the shoe.

4. Inspect the footbed

The footbed is perhaps the most important part in checking the authenticity of Birkenstock shoes. Dubbed as the “heart” of all Birkenstock shoe models, the footbed should have a suede lining, a deep heel cup for natural cushioning under the heel bone, longitudinal and transverse arch support, and a raised toe bar.

The original Birkenstock contoured footbedThe original Birkenstock contoured footbed

The Birkenstock text logo should be imprinted on the footbed of each shoe. It should also feature the words “MADE IN GERMANY” just below the logo.

You should see the shoe size and the footprint symbol on the left side of the logo, while the leather icon should be on the right.

The footbed should have an imprint showing the logo, the shoe size, a footprint symbol, and a leather iconThe footbed should have an imprint showing the logo, the shoe size, a footprint symbol, and a leather icon

These imprints come in black, except for older Birks, which are in yellow. Vegan Birks also have green imprints, while limited edition Birks have silver or gold. For Soft Footbed versions, the imprint is done in blue.

Limited Editions usually have gold imprintsLimited Editions usually have gold imprints

The EVA models should also have the same information on the footbed, except for the leather icon imprint. Its footbed should also be made from EVA, not suede.

On models with shearling lining, there should be a tag showing the same information, including the text logo, the foot symbol, and the shoe size.

Footbed of a fur-lined Birkenstock sandalThe footbed of a fur-lined Birkenstock sandal

Make sure that the texts are spelled correctly and are neatly done.

5. Check the sole

Birkenstock soles are patented and they feature the brand’s unique hourglass-shape pattern. There should also be the word “Birk” debossed on some of the shapes on the soles.

The premium versions may have different sole designs.

Footbeds on limited edition and high-end Birks look different but have the same hourglass patternFootbeds on limited edition and high-end Birks look different but have the same hourglass pattern

6. Check the logo

There should be a BIRKENSTOCK debossed logo on the inner side of the strap of each shoe. You should feel the imprint across the logo when you run your fingers over it. It should be straight and neatly done.

Original Birks have text logo on the inner side of each shoeOriginal Birks have text logo on the inner side of each shoe

7. Check the buckles and buttons

The buckles and buttons on every original Birkenstock shoe should have a debossed text logo.

On larger buckles, you should see the word “BIRKENSTOCK.”

Sandals with large buckles have "BIRKENSTOCK" debossed logoSandals with large buckles have “BIRKENSTOCK” debossed logo

On smaller buckles, you should see either “BIRKEN” or “BIRK.”

Smaller buckles have shortened text logosStyles like the ‘Gizeh’ show shortened text logos on the buckle

The Birkenstock 'Florida' sandals have three small buckles that show the "BIRK" logoThe Birkenstock ‘Florida’ sandals have three small buckles that show the “BIRK” logo

8. Check the material

Birkenstock uses premium materials. Leather Birks are made of a high-quality, thick, unsplit leather, and synthetic Birks are made of a skin-friendly durable Birko-Flor, which should be thick and hard-wearing.

Fake Birks are usually made from thin leather or poor quality materials without fleece lining.

9. Check the weight

Birkenstocks are made for comfort, so they should be lightweight. Fake Birks are usually heavier than authentic ones.

10. Check the overall quality

Authentic Birkenstocks adhere to strict manufacturing standards, and are guaranteed to be of top quality.

The outsole, cork and footbed should be neatly aligned, and there should be no excess clumps of glue anywhere.

Kate Beckinsale Reveals $4-Drugstore Skincare Secret to Youthful Skin

She’s already 46, but Kate Beckinsale looks much better than many actresses half her age. Scroll down to learn the affordable skincare secret to her glowing skin!

On Sunday, the mother-of-one showed off her youthful look in a Julien Macdonald Spring 2020 gown at the 25th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards.

Channeling old Hollywood glamour, Kate flaunted her svelte figure in a one-shoulder semi-sheer pale lilac dress. The heavily embellished gown features a draped ruching effect, a structured shoulder with a dramatic cape, and a thigh-high slit.

Kate added extra sparkle to her look with waterfall diamond earrings by Kallati. She also accessorized with several sparkling diamond rings by Yvan Tufenkjian and Djula, handpicked by former Rachel Zoe Project star, her long-time stylist Taylor Jacobson.

Although we couldn’t get a clear look at her shoes, Kate actually wore a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Max’ sandals. Boosting her height by a few inches, these metallic silver leather sandals feature slender ankle straps, open toes, 1.5-inch platforms, and about 6-inch heels.

Kate’s trusted glam team prettified the actress further. Celebrity makeup artist Rob Scheppy used Armani Beauty cosmetics to bring out her youthful glow. He applied natural nude blush, pearly nude lacquered liquid lipstick, black mascara, lacquered liquid eyeliner, and glittery fuchsia eye-makeup.

Hairstylist Peter Savic styled Kate’s tresses in retro waves, while nail expert Miwa Kobayashi painted her nails in an auburn shade.

So what’s Kate Beckinsale’s secret to a youthful look?

Kate’s Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

Aside from being blessed with good genes, Kate follows a skin care routine to help maintain her youthful skin.

Kate Beckinsale at the 14th Annual Critics' Choice Awards held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on January 8, 2009Kate Beckinsale at the 14th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on January 8, 2009

In an October 2018 interview with Today, Kate shared her go-to skincare products.

She revealed that she uses Cetaphil soap ($3.57 at Amazon), a tried and dermatologically tested soap that costs under $4.

“I use Cetaphil soap, no kidding,” Kate told Today.

Given her estimated $16-million net worth and the fact that she can splurge on any expensive beauty products, it’s quite surprising that Kate is a fan of this drugstore soap. Maybe it really does work wonders on her skin.

Kate is also a self-confessed sunscreen addict.

“Sunscreen. It was fashionable to be tan when I was growing up. And yet, I was lucky. I would get freckles in the shape of a military mustache. So I was obsessed with sunscreen. I didn’t get sun damage. Now I use La Roche-Posay ($20 at Amazon). It doesn’t make me break out,” she said.

Kate also exfoliates regularly using Colbert MD Tone Control Facial Discs ($80 at Dermstore). “I then use Dr. Colbert. He has these Tone Control Facial Discs. They exfoliate.”

She’s also a fan of skin oils, which hydrate and soften skin for a more youthful look.

“I use oils. I use Derm Institute, the Youth Alchemy Oil. And that’s it,” Kate said.

Kate doesn’t drink alcohol

Kate is a smoker but she steers clear of alcohol. In the January/February 2017 issue of Shape Magazine, Kate said she doesn’t drink anything with alcohol.

“I feel [its effects] very quickly, so I’ve never actually had an entire glass of anything alcoholic.”

She also eats clean, with mostly protein and vegetables on her plate. “We have a lot of sautéed vegetables like brussels sprouts and broccoli and chicken and fish.”

Kate works out regularly

Aside from following a skincare routine and paying attention to what she eats, Kate also works out six mornings a week.

She shared details about her workout in an interview with Women’s Health in December 2019. She mentioned she didn’t start working out until Pearl Harbor director Michael Bay asked her to lose weight for the film.

“It wasn’t great, it didn’t make me feel good, and in general, I think women are body-shamed 100 million percent more than men. But on this particular project, I wasn’t,” she said.

She added, “Now exercise is almost more important to me moodwise. The other aspects feel like a great side effect.”

Joey King Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction in Tinfoil Prada Dress on Her Way to Critics’ Choice Awards

The awards season hasn’t been that great for Joey King. Last week, she attended a Golden Globe after-party with a bump on her head after Patricia Arquette whacked her with her trophy. Then a week later, her dress’ zipper broke while heading to the Critics’ Choice Awards.

It was quite a journey for Joey King to get to the ceremony after suffering a wardrobe malfunction. On her way to the awards show, she broke her zipper and went to find a tailor for a quick fix.

A day after the ceremony, Joey posted a photo on her Instagram, showing herself getting sewn into her dress.

It was captioned: “Yesterday was the @criticschoice awards and this was me 10 minutes after I was supposed to be in the car on the way to the ceremony getting sewn into my dress by a very nice tailor at a men’s suit warehouse because my zipper broke (it was my fault) and he was the only person open on a Sunday. WOOHOO CRITICS CHOICE 😂”

//www.instagram.com/embed.js

The 20-year-old actress told ET that she went to a men’s fashion house to have her dress fixed.

“I went to a men’s fashion house for men 5’8″ and under, and it was the only place that was open.  So, I called and said, ‘Do you guys have a tailor on site?’ and they were like, ‘Yeah,’ so I walked in and they were like, ‘Are you going to prom? “I was like, ‘Hmm, something like that.’”

She wowed us in her stunning Iris van Herpen 3D dress at the Golden Globes last week. However, at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday, Joey King failed to impress in her head-to-toe Prada look.

Nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie, Joey King walked the blue carpet in a Prada metallic gown similar to an aluminum foil.

The crinkled silver tinfoil dress features a scoop neckline, shoulder ties, a flattering fitted bodice, and a structured ankle-length skirt.

It was less appealing than her Golden Globe dress, but Joey still managed to turn some heads.

It was, in fact, her sweet accessory that garnered more attention. With the ceremony’s fully vegan menu, Joey snuck in some sweet treats as she carried a purse full of Good & Plenty candy.

Using Urban Decay Cosmetics, makeup artist Allan Avendaño added a pop of color to Joey’s metallic look with green smoky eyeshadow. He also brushed her brows up and applied black eyeliner, mascara, nude lipstick, and subtle flush on her cheeks.

Hairstylist Dimitri Giannetos gave Joey an old Hollywood glamour look with a wavy bob hairstyle. Celebrity manicurist Thuy Nguyen complemented her metallic dress with futuristic nail tape with platinum grade top coating.
