French Canadian d.fayou’s (tiktok.com/@d.fayou”@d.fayou) posts have delighted her 256,000 followers.

She regularly comes across as joyous as she dances and shares her different food recipes on her platform, alongside her fitness journey.

In a recent post, she showed viewers her preparation for a session at the gym.

This involved getting dressed, applying moisturizer, fixing her hair, and adding a touch of mascara and lipstick.

However, she showed particular dedication to this trip to the gym because it involved trekking through snow, but she seemed unbothered.

Once there she got on the treadmill and did her thing.

In her quiet way, d.fayou has inspired other plus-size women among her followers to have some self-belief and get fit too.

“Focus on yourself and surround yourself with people who uplift you – not those who tear your down,” she said.

Her post has had over 94,000 likes and nearly a thousand comments, and an awful lot of love and respect.

Commenters ran out of superlatives, but there was admiration all around.

Even snow wouldn't keep her away from the gym

“Perfume, lip color, and mascara for the gym? Love it,” was the impressed reaction of this follower.

Aditi Rao Hydari snapped with rumoured BF Sidharth, take fashion cues for lunch date from Heeramandi actress

Aditi Rao Hydari lunch date

Aditi Rao Hydari has been winning hearts with her recent look from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming Netflix drama Heeramandi. With a vibrant gold attire and those regal jewels, Aditi is a sight to behold.

While the images are taking over the web world, a new video of Aditi has also been going viral. She was spotted post lunch along with her rumoured beau Sidharth. The rumoured couple was spotted post-lunch at a popular Mumbai eatery.

The two had teamed up for the romantic action film Maha Samudram in 2021 and soon after love sparked. Even on Aditi’s birthday, Sidharth went on to post a very mushy note on Instagram.

For the fashionista that Aditi is, the stunner opted for an ill-fitted pink shirt with joggers, Gucci shoes, and a teal blue bag. Sans any makeup, Aditi looked like a breath of fresh air. While Aditi posed for the paparazzi, Sidharth shied away as usual and made his way to the car. Nonetheless, he looked super dapper in a simple t-shirt and jeans.

While we do hope to see Sidharth and Aditi on the big screen once again, here’s looking at Aditi’s outfits that are perfect for the lunch date.

Ain’t she a total fashionista?

On the film front, Aditi has two very interesting projects in the pipeline. She will next be seen in Taj where she essays the role of Anarkali which was earlier brought to life by legendary actress Madhubala. Aditi is also busy with SLB’s Heeramandi. This marks Aditi’s second project with the filmmaker after Padmaavat.

Johnny Depp signs new seven-figure deal with Dior

Johnny Depp has reportedly signed a new seven-figure deal with Dior.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star has “re-upped” his contract with the French luxury brand to reflect a “seven-figure” agreement for the actor to continue as the face of Dior’s Sauvage fragrance, a source told E! News.

Depp has worked with Dior as the ambassador for men’s fragrance Sauvage since 2015. After the product became the best-selling item on Sephora and Ulta’s websites earlier this year, the 59-year-old allegedly renegotiated his contract with the brand.

The Wall Street Journal reported in June that Sauvage became a best-selling product during Depp’s recent defamation trial with his ex-wife Amber Heard, which he won.

In June, a jury found Heard liable for defamation over her 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse”. In the ruling, Heard was also awarded damages over an alleged “online smear campaign” against her.

Dior has continued to post Depp’s face and testimonials on its Instagram during the reported contract renewal.

In a post earlier this week, the brand posted photos of Depp backstage at a concert in Paris, captioned, “Fearless yet human, just like Sauvage.”

And in a video shared on the social media account, Depp can be heard saying, “Sauvage brings me a lot of memories, a lot of shows… Things that you smelled growing up that if I smell it, it takes me right back and I see the person that used to wear it.

“It’s a sense memory, so a smell can make you travel.”

Kim Jones, the artistic director of Dior Men, has announced a collaboration with the automotive game Gran Turismo 7.

The skin designed by Jones has the playable driver in a yellow and gray overall with matching driving gloves, a set of race-inspired Diorizon sneakers, and a helmet in a blue and gray colorway. 

Of course, the suit is branded by the atelier with the “CD” logo on the upper right—above the brand name at the center. The design also appears on the sleeves. The number “47” is likewise used as a design element, which honors Dior’s first fashion show in 1947. 

Joining in

Jones also designed a matching car, a vintage De Tomaso Mangusta, to match the skin. The collaboration marks the 76-year-old brand’s entrance into the growing virtual space. One of its competitor luxury houses, Gucci, is leading in making a metaverse presence. 

Last March, Gucci advanced its digital push with the NFT project “Gucci Vault.” At the same time, they launched “New Tokyo,” which is a space in the metaverse.

‘Dior would roll in his grave’

johnny-depp” data-ylk=”slk:Johnny Depp” class=”link “Johnny Depp has reportedly signed a multi-year, seven-figure contract with Dior.

The contract will see Depp pocket a reported US$1m (£868,000) for returning as the face of Sauvage fragrance for men.

To announce the deal, Dior posted a video of Depp on stage in Paris where he performed with Jeff Beck.

The caption of the post read: “Watch @johnnydepp as he takes the stage at @olympiahall in Paris, the legendary concert venue where he saw @vanessa.paradis and introduced his kids to @bobdylan. Like Sauvage, it represents the idea of something fearless yet human. By: @gregwilliamsphotography.”

While Depp had never been dropped by Dior during the defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, which Depp won, the post is a sign that the brand intends to continue its relationship with the actor.

Fans were quick to comment on Dior’s post, with one person writing: “Love your support for Johnny.”

Another added: “Dior supporting legends,” while a third said: “Dior y’all real for stayin with JD the whole time.”

However, some fans of the brand weren’t so keen on the news, with one person on Twitter writing: “Christian Dior would roll in his grave knowing Johnny Depp is the ambassador for his fragrance. #BoycottDior.”

The video came after Dior posted teaser shots of the campaign showing Depp at the Paris show.

“Backstage at @olympiahall before the last show. Fearless yet human, just like Sauvage,” one set of images was captioned.

The brand included a quote from Depp on another post promoting the fragrance that read: “Sauvage brings me a lot of memories, a lot of shows. Things that you smelled growing up that if I smell it, it takes me right back and I see the person that used to wear it. It’s a
