The Scariest Horror Movies You Can Watch Right Now, If That’s Your Thing

The best scary movies span decades and themes, but they all have one thing in common: the ability to tap into your deepest fears. Good horror movies are so unsettling to watch because they play out the very things you’d most like to avoid in real life. Vampires? Wouldn’t want to meet one! A haunted house? No thanks. A twisted serial killer who just won’t quit? Yeah, that’s a hard pass from me. 

And yet! I love a spooky tale, especially horror movies with women leads. There’s something cathartic about facing these terrors from the safety of your couch. Paranormal movies are actually fun when you know your own house isn’t haunted, you know? 

I’ve shared a few of my favorites, below, and asked my fellow Glamour staffers about the scariest horror films they’ve ever watched as well. The results were entertaining, to say the least. They also gave me some new creepy movies to add to my queue—turns out, some of the best scary movies are on Netflix and other streaming services.

15 Button-Down Shirts to Master Effortless Dressing

Colorful, casual, and effortless—that’s what the best button-down shirts for women look like these days. It makes sense given that most people are pretty much over hoodies and sweatpants, but still looking for relaxed takes on the items that used to make them feel put together. Cue the humble button-down, which despite its simplicity and timeless nature, feels remarkably fresh for now—and we couldn’t help but take note of all the ways celebs and cool-girls are styling this wardrobe staple. 

Some are embracing oversized silhouettes as “blazers,” leaving them entirely unbuttoned to throw over slip dresses, bodysuits, and tank tops while temps are still balmy outside. Others are leaving the bottom half unbuttoned—or opting for cropped silhouettes to wear with everything from miniskirts to flowy trousers. 

The overall vibe of these button-down shirts is easygoing, and the outfit often made up of pieces you already own (or have seriously considered adding to cart). And the colors! They are bright, bold, and in-your-face—think of them as more versatile (and yes, subtle) interpretations of last year’s “Zoom” top that can be worn year-round without losing their novelty. From hot pinks to sweet lilacs and sunny oranges, shop 15 of the best button-down shirts for women below.

30 Coffin Nail Designs to Try This Winter

Coffin winter nails are a seasonal twist to the oh-so-popular nail shape that has been gracing our feeds all year long. Instead of the Wildflower-inspired hearts and rainbow manis, these designs are all about giving off that cozy and comfy vibe—think warm neutrals and fresh takes on the classic French tip. 

While routine manis are a lifestyle we’re fully committed to, it’s worth noting that with winter comes the need for top-tier nail care as this season tends to be the harshest on our hands. “The exposure to the elements not only dries out the nails but may cause them to flake,” says celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann. “Our nails naturally have a low oil and moisture content and therefore, they can become dry and brittle.” So while you’re refreshing your manicure mood board, make sure you’re taking care of your nails underneath.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best coffin winter nails that’ll fit perfectly with your favorite thick knits. Whether you live by a weekly mani or prefer to treat yourself to one at the turn of each season, you’ll want to bookmark these designs ASAP. 

The Neutrals 

This chocolatey French mani is the stuff of hygge dreams. The contrast of matte and gloss adds the perfect amount of edge to the minimalist design.

Playing with texture is an easy way to refresh a neutral mani. The gradient French tips above take it to the next level with fuzzy decals in matching hues.

Spicy ombre nails just sounds delicious. If there were ever a mani that perfectly captures a warm latte on a brisk afternoon it would be these right here. 

We’ll never get tired of gold foil. It really elevates a nail to look opulent instantly and is in style in every season. But gold in the winter just hits different.

If you never thought about a brown mani, here’s your chance to fully embrace it. The warm tones are inviting on their own; add a layer of glitter, and you’ll never want to take it off.

We love a classic french tip, but if you’re looking for a way to mix it up try chocolate swirls. What can we say? Winter and chocolate are a match made in heaven for good reason.

Polka dots were super big this year, and it seemed like everyone was trying their hand at the dynamic design. A cute and easy way to transition this look to the winter is by trading in neon colors for a more neutral palette. 

Black + White

Who says black manis are just for Halloween? While you might be tempted to put away your darkest shades after the 31st, an inky new set actually makes for an incredibly chic look all year round.

Just like the chocolate mani, there’s something about that matte and gloss combo. It works every time. 

The black and white combo never fails to make an impression. Make them take a second look with mismatched flaming tips and gold piercings—it sounds so questionable yet look so right.

Nail piercings may seem like a relatively new trend, but they’ve been on our radar for more than a decade. The upkeep is often the reason many decide to opt out. But if you’re looking for a way to add some bling in the non-traditional sense (think rhinestones and glitter), then piercings are your best bet.

A black French tip looks regal on its own—add gold and pearls, and it’s fully sublime.

No, this isn’t black and white—but the color combo here is just as classic. It’s the French ombre of our dreams.

It’s hard not to get starry-eyed while looking at this mani. The subtle glitter and painted sparkles give a romantic quality to the overall look, and the pop of pink to the black and white color scheme adds a little oomph.

Diagonal lines don’t get enough credit when it comes to nail art. A striking dark color lined with gold elongates the nails while making them stand out. 

A mismatched mani doesn’t have to be all neon daisies. For a toned version, keep the colors simple—like this beige and black set—and go to town on the designs.

Lots of Color 

It wouldn’t be a true winter roundup without a nod to one of the biggest holidays of the season. For many families, this Christmas will be the first time loved ones are able to safely get together in-person in over a year. Needless to say, brace yourselves for plenty of holiday cheer, from ribbon laced nails to glitter French tips

Chrome hearts were having a big moment this summer. If you want to try out the trend but aren’t sure about a full chrome set just yet, decals are the way to go. And you can achieve this look in any color combo you like! 

If you’re not really into the warm neutrals and prefer a more colorful mani, this rainbow gradient is a great way to tone down bright colors. The tips still pop while the base helps to ground an otherwise intense color palette.  

Typically we see marble sets that fall into the neutrals category, but combining purple and yellow makes for a more magnetic approach while still feeling perfect for the winter.   

If the matte above isn’t your thing, adding some high-shine gloss to the purple swirl will draw out the curves and give your design more dimension. The result: an almost holographic effect. 

Reptile prints were also big this summer as people ventured outside again and embraced the beauty of their surrounding nature, and that trend will continue into winter. A nude base warms up this set.

If you’re looking to warm up this winter, neon flames layered on top of black French tips will have you covered.

These nails are pretty in pink and are perfect for a festive holiday gathering or snuggling on the couch at home while you admire your shiny new set.

A dreamy blue ombre nail for the wintry season that will be hard not to get lost in.

Go for gold—literally. For nails that read divine, regal, and outright legendary, don’t be afraid to layer on the metallic and gems.

These red and tortoise nails are not for the faint of heart, but they are for the person who wants to command the room. 

This super cute lilac set looks isn’t just adorable to look at, it’s also instantly soothing. 

Flames tend to feel edgy but layering them on top a shimmery emerald makes the look more festive.

These nails are giving the chicest holiday you’ll ever have.

Keep the Invites Coming With These Halloween Couples Costume Ideas

Salma Hayek Just Posted a Sweet (and Rare) Photo of Her Daughter

Salma Hayek Pinault just posted the sweetest tribute to her daughter,Valentina, for her birthday, and it’s making us want to call our moms ASAP. Hayek, who sometimes shares family pictures via Instagram but not much information, gave a rare update on her teenage daughter, who just turned 14.

“My precious girl, you are everything to me. Blessed be the day you came into my life to shine your radiant light Happy Birthday 🎂🎈 Valentina!!!!!,” she wrote on Tuesday, September 21, under a picture of herself and her daughter in silhouette, embracing at sunset.

“Thank you for being YOU,” Hayek added, before posting the same message in Spanish: “Mi niña preciosa, eres todo para mi. Bendito el día que llegaste a mi vida a iluminarla con tu radiante luz. Feliz cumpleaños Valentina !!! Gracias 🙏 por ser TU 💋” Hayek is Mexican-American and her husband, François-Henri Pinault, is French. Valentina Paloma Pinault is her only child.

“❤️🎂❤️🎂” commented Naomi Campbell on the picture. Linda Evangelista, Pinault’s ex-wife, added, “♥️🎈♥️🎈” The great thing about emojis? They’re the same in every language.

Hayek recently celebrated her own birthday, turning 55 and celebrating with friends, including her Marvel’s Eternals costar Angelina Jolie, who pushed her face into a birthday cake. Don’t worry, this was part of a festive Mexican tradition, and Hayek actually egged her friend on and asked her to do it. Not the start of yet another Hollywood feud!

Salma Hayek also reflected (kinda) on the aging process last year, when a follower made an unnecessary comment on one of her Instagram pictures, writing, “Too much Botox. Not needed, Salma.” Never one to miss an opportunity to teach or learn, she responded, “I don’t have Botox. But thank you for the advice because I was thinking maybe it’s time.” Never change, queen.

The Britney Spears Netflix Documentary Is Premiering Next Week, and the Trailer Is Intense

In wake of the public interest in the Britney Spears conservatorship saga–which is still unfolding and may even end soon–Netflix is releasing a doc on the subject, Britney vs. Spears.

The streaming giant dropped a trailer for the doc on Wednesday, September 22, and it promises an even more in-depth look at Spears’s conservatorship. While the New York Times/Hulu doc Framing Britney Spears took a holistic view at Spears’s early life, career, media coverage, and the events that led to her current situation, BvS seems to be more legal-oriented, chasing down facts and clues through documents and recordings. 

Director Erin Lee Carr helmed Britney vs. Spears. Her past work includes the thought-provoking docs Mommy Dead and Dearest, I Love You, Now Die, and a recent exploration of the Larry Nassar/USA Gymnastics scandal for HBO. 

Carr mentioned on Twitter that she’s been working on this project for over two years, suggesting the doc is not in reaction to Framing Britney Spears. 

Britney vs. Spears is set to premiere September 28, the day before Spears’s next conservatorship hearing. Read an official description of the doc, per a Netflix press release, below:

“The world knows Britney Spears: performer, artist, icon. But in the last few years, her name has been publicly tied to another, more mysterious term: conservatorship. Britney vs Spears tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom. Featuring years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews, and new documents, this Netflix feature film paints a thorough portrait of the pop star’s trajectory from girl next door to a woman trapped by fame and family and her own legal status. It shows Britney’s life without utilizing the traumatic images that have previously defined her. Director Erin Lee Carr (How To Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money) and journalist Jenny Eliscu work to delve deep into the tangled history of the conservatorship that has been in place for over 13 years. The film weaves a shocking timeline of old and new players, secret rendezvous and Britney’s behind the scenes fight for her own autonomy. Text messages and a voicemail as well as new interviews with key players make clear what Britney herself has attested: the full story has yet to be told.”

Get Ready For The Return of Skinny Brows

Trends are cyclical, but if there were one beauty look our moms have warned us off since day one, it would be plucked, skinny eyebrows.

Thing is, they’re back. And, we can’t decide if we’re mad or not.

The look was a hit with ’90s supers like Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, as well as celebs like Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore, but it got binned back in the noughties and 2010s thanks to the slow (or non-existent) regrowth. In its place, bushy brows have firmly headlined the past decade or so, up until now, perhaps?

One woman who’s openly bringing back the skinny brow trend is model, Bella Hadid. In fairness, she’s one of few millennial celebs who never really hopped onto the bushy brow train in the first place, but lately, her brow journey has seen her swap fairly slender brows…

…for even dinkier arches.

And this year’s appearance on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, pushed Bella to try an even more daring makeup look, with straight, sharp, super-slim, skyward brows that further emphasize her chiseled bone structure.

The internet’s divided. Gen X and the boomers that went before them still seem scarred from the experience. One makeup artist, @askellenbeauty, took to TikTok to tell followers “no no! Put the tweezers down. Ten years of brow rehab here,” she says pointing to her cherished pair of full-looking arches.

She followed up with a comparison vid showing famous women like Priyanka Chopra, Margot Robbie, the Duchess of Cambridge and Audrey Hepburn with full vs skinny brows writing “I will never agree to this.”

Others are 100% team skinny brow, such as user @happistarr1, who wrote “I’m living for skinny brows,” while showcasing some fierce arches. “I’m going to start a petition to bring back skinny eyebrows. I think they’re the reason why the girlies were so fine in the 2000s,” she explains.

If you’re interested to know how you’d look with micro brows, TikTokers have been using the Time Warp Scan filter to test the look out.

And, if you’re still on the fence, others have found a way to rock the style without shaving or plucking their brow hairs by covering their brows with concealer, then drawing a thinner shape over the top.

So, if you’re intrigued but don’t want the commitment, that may be the way to go. Either way, expect to see more dinky brows dominating your feed.

Britney Spears Just Gave a Rare Update on How Her Sons Are Doing

Back on Instagram after a brief hiatus to celebrate her recent engagement, pop star Britney Spears shared an update with fans about her two sons, Jayden and Sean Preston. Believe it or not, the “…Baby One More Time” singer is mother to two teenagers, and like any proud mom, she’s got a lot of feelings about watching her boys grow up.

“My boys’ birthdays were last week … and unfortunately they are growing up and want to do their own things …. I have to ask their permission to post them because they are extremely independent little men 🤷🏼‍♀️😂🥺 !!! ” she posted on Tuesday, September 21, under a graphic that reads, “There is nothing stronger than the love between a mother and son.” Sean was born September 14, 2005, and Jayden arrived almost exactly a year later, on September 12, 2006, so a joint party makes a lot of sense.

“Anyway we had a small party and the coolest ice cream cakes 🍨 🎂 !!! It makes me crazy because they are so tall and geez they are still growing 😳😳😳 !!! They went to a dance last week and I cried for two days 😭😭😭 my babies in a suit !!! It’s crazy !!! And girls get ready cause my boys are so handsome 🥰🥰🥰 !!!,” gushed Spears, who shares her sons with ex Kevin Federline.

Britney Spears, who is currently fighting to end the restrictive conservatorship she’s been living under since her sons were toddlers, reiterated that her children aren’t eager for the spotlight.

She wrote, “I truly believe this quote which is why I wanted to share it … there’s a lot I can’t share with you all because my kids are very private which I love but I will tell you they are both extremely talented and I’m so incredibly blessed to have these two little men in my life ❤️🙏🏼 !!! And if they’re reading this … which I’m pretty sure they’re not … I love you two little devils so much 😈❤️😈 !!!”

Happy (belated) birthdays, boys!

Britney Spears’s Attorney Has Filed Documents Saying Her Conservatorship Should End

“Now, and for the past many years, Conservatee is able to care for her person and in fact has, within the parameters of this conservatorship, earned literally hundreds of millions of dollars as an international celebrity,” the petition states.

The filing was made one week after Britney’s testimony in which she asked for her nearly 13-year conservatorship to be terminated.

Jodi Montgomery claims Jamie Spears used his daughter’s money for his own defense.

In documents filed in Los Angeles court on July 9, per People, Britney’s personal conservator accused Jamie of taking “more than $2 million of his daughter’s money” to defend himself and remain in control of Britney’s estate. 

“It is ironic that Mr. Spears now wants the conservatorship to ‘reflect her wishes,’ since it is no secret that Ms. Spears has wished her father out of her life for years,” Montgomery’s lawyer Lauriann Wright also wrote in the document. Read more, here.

Britney is granted the right to hire her own attorney, demands her father’s removal from her conservatorship. 

“I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him for conservatorship abuse,” she told a court on July 14, according to Variety. “I want to press charges for abuse on this conservatorship today…all of it.”

She continued, “I’m here now today, your honor, to remove my dad altogether.”

According to Variety, the pop icon told Judge Brenda Penny, who oversees her case, that she was made to take psych tests “against her will” during her Circus concert tour, which ran in 2009. She says she was told if she complied, her life would go back to normal. “I did it all and they lied…they did nothing,” Spears said. “They didn’t end it, and I kept working.” The singer added she doesn’t want people to “question my intelligence for the millionth time.”

Per Variety, Spears told the judge she’s not “perfect” but that her “episodes” stemmed from “what they did to me,” presumably referring to her conservators. “It was their goal to make me feel crazy, which I’m not.”

In her testimony, Spears also claimed her father got her driver’s license taken away, made sure she couldn’t drink coffee, controlled her diet, and took away her “pink hair vitamins.” “That’s not abuse. That’s just fucking cruelty,” she said. 

She also opened up a bit about her history with her father, saying, “I was always extremely scared of my dad and scared he was going to show up drunk somewhere.

“Instead of trying to investigate my behavior or my capacity, I want my dad investigated,” Spears said. “This conservatorship is literally allowing my dad to rule my life…. That is abuse, and we all know it.”

She also said, “I’m angry, and I will go there,” referring to her desire to sue her father for conservatorship abuse. 

For the time being, Spears has requested the conservator of her person, Jodi Montgomery, remain on her case. 

Shortly after the hearing, the lawyer Spears hired, Mathew Rosengart, called for Jamie Spears to voluntarily step down from his daughter’s conservatorship. “This is not working. What is supposed to be at the heart of this has been lost,” he said. “There is a real question as to why Mr. Spears does not voluntarily step down today…. Is he here for financial reasons? Does anybody really believe that Mr. Spears’s involvement is in the best interest of his daughter?” Rosengart also confirmed his firm would be investigating the origins of Spears’s conservatorship, which was put into effect in 2008. He said, “A conservatorship was probably not necessary.”
