It was a rather emotional Mother’s Day for Priyanka Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas, as the new and first-time parents finally got to bring their daughter home and embrace her. The couple took to their respective Instagram accounts to post pictures of their baby — her face obscured with a heart emoji — writing about the trying period in the hospital, which is now behind them. Calling the last few months a “rollercoaster”, Chopra wrote in the caption: “After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home. Every family’s journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is.”

A World Heritage Site is a place listed by UNESCO for having special cultural or physical significance. It is a wonderful tool for culture, architecture and history enthusiasts while travelling to discover and explore sites of such significance. The list includes 1,154 sites from across the world, albeit some enjoying more popularity than others. According to Zitango Travel’s data, people searched for Taj Mahal more than any other UNESCO World Heritage Site in the world. The mausoleum, one of the seven wonders of the world, had 14 lakh searches in a month! In January 2022, Raj Kumar Patel, Superintending Archaeologist of ASI, Agra Circle, said more than 10,ooo people visited the Taj Mahal on a single Saturday.

Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal are couple goals. What else will you call them when their Instagram profiles are filled with love-filled posts? They tease their fans with snippets of their life together as a married couple, and we are all for it. The couple seems to be travelling right now, for Katrina shared a photo of sitting at her ‘favourite place ever’, wearing a green oversized shirt and smiling at the camera. She was joined by Vicky, and they dined at Bubby’s in New York City.

There’s no denying that staying physically fit and active is quintessential to your overall well-being. But, one of the key aspects of fitness is consistency. As such, if you are looking for inspiration to stay dedicated to your fitness goals and get desired results, seek inspiration from Arjun Kapoor who broke the internet with his massive 15-month transformation. Taking to Instagram, the actor posted two pictures that were taken 15 months apart — one in February 2021 and another in May 2022. He wrote: “15 months of being #workinprogress! Felt cute and definitely won’t delete later because I’m immensely proud of this journey.”

Kangana Ranaut displayed an immaculate sense of style during her stint as a host on the recently-concluded reality show, Lock Upp. Thus, it was only expected of her to leave us in awe of her glamorous fashion pick at the show’s success bash and she didn’t disappoint! Looking resplendent as ever, the actor slipped into a 3D corsetry gown from Alpana Neeraj’s latest collection. The strapless ensemble featured a crystal-encrusted bodice and flowy sheer bottom with a thigh-high slit and a long train.

Kim Kardashian was certainly a vision on the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala. But, she was also heavily criticised for losing weight in order to fit into her dress— one that was previously worn by Marilyn Monroe in 1962 to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to former US president John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Originally made by costumier Jean Louis and sketched by a young Bob Mackie, the dress featured more than 6,000 handsewn crystals on nude mesh fabric that fuelled rumours of Monroe having an affair with the president.


Celebrated fashion designer Vera Wang, who has dressed many celebrities around the world, has now been honoured with her very own Barbie doll. Mattel dedicated the doll to the Chinese-American fashion designer. Sharing a picture of the doll on her official Instagram handle, the accompanying caption read: “Born to Chinese immigrants, Vera Wang’s talent and work ethic quickly saw her gain experience alongside the biggest names in fashion, before establishing her own bridalwear boutique. Now at the head of a fashion and lifestyle empire, Wang has cemented her place as a beacon of creativity, with a lasting impact on fashion for generations to come.”

In a recent interview with Selena Gomez, Cuban-American singer-songwriter opened up about her struggle with anxiety, calling it a “bad trip” and something “manifests as obsessive compulsive stuff”. Both Cabello and Gomez have been candid about going through mental health difficulties and also overcoming them. Elaborating on how anxiety manifests itself, Cabello added, “In the moment, everything feels dizzying and overwhelming and like you’re on this ride thinking, Just help me get off. In my mind, it’s a loop, like obsessive compulsive stuff. In my body, it’s a tightness, almost like I can’t move, like my hands are tied and everything is just tied up.”


Australian cricketer Pat Cummins, who is currently playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, tried Pav Bhaji for the first time after asking for dinner recommendations in Mumbai on Twitter. In a tweet, he asked his fans and followers for local dishes to try in Mumbai. The Australian Test captain then decided to try Pav Bhaji among other options like Vada Pav, Misal Pav etc. Cummins also posted a photo of Pav Bhaji he savoured in the Maximum city. As a fast food in Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, Pav Bhaji consists of a vegetable curry or bhaji cooked in tomato gravy and served with soft hot buns or pav.


Delhi-born Kartik Kumra always had a penchant for clothes. As a teenager, he used to resell clothes online — which, over the years, fuelled his interest in fashion. Kumra, however, says “it became pretty clear that there was nothing that looked like it represented my culture at the top level at the best stores.” So he made clothes that could. Except, he was not a fashion designer. He is, in fact, a student of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. But, defying the unquestioned norm that fashion designing needs formal education, Kumra not only taught himself design but also made menswear creations that would go on to catch the eyes of leading global fashion retail platforms like SSense, Mr Porter, Selfridges, and Calculus, among others.
