Netflix has found their new Carmen Sandiego — and two times over.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Gina Rodriguez will play the film’s namesake character in a live-action remake, which follows a “fictional thieving villain from the 1990s educational children’s series.”
But Rodriguez’s contributions to the streaming service’s revival of the film don’t end there; in fact, EW reports that she will also lend her voice to Netflix’s original animated series based on the character.
What’s more is that EW says “the live-action version will also be produced by Rodriguez through her I Can and I Will production company, alongside Kevin Misher and Caroline Fraser.”
Way to go, Carmen Sandiego — er, Gina Rodriguez!
MAC is about to release the modern revamp of our favorite ’90s makeup pleasures.
According to PopSugar, the makeup brand has teased new versions of their popular Lipglass, which apparently taste and smell like desserts, fruit and all things sweet.
While specifics on the new glosses are far from clear, PopSugar said that the shades and their adjoining scents include “Death by Chocolate, which is a moody purple. Banana Muffins is a bold orange, Coconut Macaroon is rose gold, Funfetti Cake is an iridescent silver, Raspberry Cream is a punchy berry, and Strawberry Torte is red, obviously.”
If these really smell and taste like their namesakes, we’re all in for a treat — literally.
Christina Aguilera is looking a bit different these days, but just as beautiful as ever.
That’s because she debuted a fresh-faced look on the cover of Paper magazine, Cosmopolitan reports, going “virtually makeup-free” in an extreme closeup photo; that theme continues throughout the glossy, though other photos show off some “out-there eye makeup and more dramatic hairstyles.”
Being pulled toward drama and rawness, Cosmo says Aguilera told the magazine that she has reconciled her desire to be both a performer and her natural self.
“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage,” she said. “I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature. But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”
Though she is beautiful — no matter what they say, and with or without makeup —Aguilera wants to make one thing clear: her glamorous self isn’t going anywhere.
“I mean, I’m a girl that likes a beat face, let’s not get it twisted,” she said.

Just in time for spring and summer, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is gracing us with the perfect product for off-the-shoulder weather.
According to Glamour, the multi-hyphenate recently unveiled brand-new body glitter products that will make your skin look equal parts dewy and shimmery. The brand’s two body glitter products offer similarly gorgeous results: Glamour says Body Lava is a “shimmer-packed liquid highlighter,” while Fenty’s Fairy Bomb offers a powder puff alternative that is “packed with shimmer inside.”
So far, the Body Lava is available in two shades, says Glamour, which include Brown Sugar — a shimmery bronze — and Who Needs Clothes, which is a peachy-champagne color. Instagram photos of the products show Rihanna using a kabuki brush to meld the product into her skin, Glamour reports, so you know when you buy your Body Lava that you’ll also be purchasing the adjoining brush.
The Fairy Bomb, however, offers a much more subtle sheen than an all-out glitter, Glamour says, with the fluffy pouf coming in a pretty rose gold shade.
So how much will all this set you back? Each Body Lava will hit you for a lofty $59 at Sephora, while the Fairy Bomb will cost $42. Despite their lofty price tags, one thing is for sure — when these products drop on April 6, we will all be lining up to make our purchases.
I, Tonya star Margot Robbie has a new project in the works, and it’s definitely one to watch.
According to Nylon, Robbie has partnered with the Australia Broadcasting Corporation and Aussie production company Hoodlum to create “a modernized television retelling of Shakespeare dramas” that will be “told from the perspectives of women and led by an all-woman creative team.”
Currently an unnamed, 10-episode series, Nylon says the show will follow the traditional framework of Shakespeare’s plays and will reportedly offer commentary on modern society and pose the perfect platform to showcase Australia’s cultural diversity. The move to work on such a project follows the 2014 launch of Robbie’s own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, says Nylon, where she tends to find and work with lesser-known female talent.
“I’m taking a lot of meetings with the lesser-known talent at the moment, the indie film-makers, first- and second-time film-makers, mainly women,” she explained to Australia’s Associated Press, Nylon reports. “I’m in a lovely position where I can actually help get things greenlit so I want to work with people who we haven’t seen yet.”
While Nylon says a release date for the series has not been announced, one thing’s for sure: we will be watching.
