We've got you covered
1. Emma Watson continues her press tour
Emma Watson continues to feature ethically-sourced and eco-friendly fashion and beauty finds on her promotional tour of Beauty and the Beast.
2. The Beauty and the Beast backlash
After the film's big reveal that LeFou — Gaston's sidekick played by Josh Gad — is gay, fans and non-fans alike both cheered and jeered. Here are some of our favourite clapbacks.
imagine boycotting beauty & the beast because of a gay character while being totally cool with a teenage girl falling in love with a buffalo— Tyler Oakley (@tyleroakley) March 5, 2017
Beauty and the Beast has a gay character!? Disguting. Children need to know that love should only be between a woman and a horned wolf-bear.— Chris R. Wright (@chrisrwright) March 5, 2017
Why are people surprised that there's a gay character in Beauty and the Beast? Did they not watch the animated classic?— royale with cheese (@ginnnelli) March 5, 2017
3. Emma Watson vs. the Beyhive
Following in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian, Watson brought her receipts to her Twitter account when the Beyhive came after her. The latter attacked her for criticising Beyoncé after Watson herself was criticised for appearing in a revealing Vanity Fair shoot.

4. Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner in Ocean Eight
When we found out that the Kardashian was making a cameo in the movie, Ocean Eight, our hearts couldn't handle it. The new flick is said to centre on a jewellery heist, which is a bit on the nose, in our opinion.
5. Ciara and co. get cosy
Really, really cosy. Now there's a family portrait for generations to come.
6. Brazen beauties
There's so much to love about Lily Singh, but here's to the YouTube personality for getting Charlize Theron to wave her bra in front of the camera for International Women's Day.
7. Cara Delevingne unites us all
Here's to girl power: Cara Delevingne's special announcement with Puma and UN's Girl Up Campaign wants us to get moving.
8. Mindy Kaling's diverse girl gang
From featuring Nigerian author and feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Pakistani activist for female education Malala Yousafzai to famous actor and intersectional feminist Amandla Stenberg, Kaling is definitely urging us to #BeBoldForChange this year.
9. Shay Mitchell does it right with this one
Change up your home decor with this pretty pink number. In our heads? Jay Z's Girls Girls Girls. Thanks, Shay.
10. Flower power
Apart from being a special guest at the L'oreal Paris Women of Worth Gala, Blake Lively nails #IWD with this post. Period.
