Wohoo! Bella Hadid has just been crowned the 'Model of the Year' at GQ magazine's annual awards ceremony in London.

The 19-year-old, who was totally surprised to have bagged the award, claimed she was "having a heart attack a little bit". She received the award from fellow model, Ashley Graham.

With the trophy in hand, Bella addressed the audience with her thankfulness speech.

She paid tribute to her mother, former model and reality star Yolanda Foster.

"This is the first time my mom has been out of bed in four years and got her hair and makeup done. I'm so happy she's here," Bella said.

The model also mentioned her mother's tribulations when battling lyme disease (an infectious disease caused by bacteria).

Rihanna has her hands full in CR Fashion Book's Fall/Winter issue and how.

Posing for its cover, she grabs her bare breast and puffs on a cigar in a sexy, modern-day Marie Antoinette-inspired look.

The stylist Carine Roitfeld of the fashion shoot told E! News, "I wanted to show that she is not just a villain to be despised or a muse to be channeled. She is neither, actually.

"She is a prototype for contemporary fame, body, beauty, celebrity and femininity."

She further added, "Everything done by her and to her has influenced society’s concept of womanhood… for better or worse."

DJ Calvin Harris has been spotted with Mexican model Eiza Gonzalez, leading to speculations that they are seeing each other.

The pair's friends, however, say that they are still getting to know each other and are keeping things casual right now, reported People magazine.

"They have been talking and hanging out. It's new," a source said.

Harris was most recently linked to Tinashe, following his shocking split from Taylor Swift in June. Gonzalez was previously spotted with Liam Hemsworth following his split from Miley Cyrus in 2013, but that
relationship quickly fizzled out.

She has also been linked to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Kylie Jenner's so much like her sister Kim Kardashian. How?

She recently debuted her platinum mane, and it gave us major throwback Kim vibes.

Well she isn't the first of her famous family to go blonde.

In fact, the 19-year-old makeup mogul stepped out in New York City in a plunging bodysuit, which looked very much like the one worn by her 35-year-old sister in Paris last year.

While Kylie definitely appreciates some of the same styles as Kim, she is certainly the one to start new trends and not follow them.

But do blondes really have more fun? Spotted at New York fashion Week, Kylie said to a fashion portal, "So far, I think so… I'm having fun!"

One Direction star Harry Styles and model Kendall Jenner were recently spotted on a dinner date together in Los Angeles, sparking rumours they have rekindled their romance.

The on-and-off pair, who were first linked in 2013 and enjoyed a Caribbean getaway together earlier this year, have started dating again, reported People magazine.

"They're rekindling their old romance and Kendall's so excited and happy about it. She's always cared about Harry. Kendall was beaming all night. They're trying to spend time together again," a source said.

Although Jenner, 20 and Styles, 22, have known each other for some time, things apparently never got serious before.

"He has thought all along that Kendall is hot and was sort of just waiting for a chance to spend more time with her again," the source said.
