Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com. TikTok's biggest star might have snagged a unique partnership with Dunkin', but that doesn't mean she wants to flaunt it in front of everyone. Sixteen-year-old Charli D'Amelio and Dunkin' introduced a new coffee beverage into shops nationwide last month, which has been named "The Charli." But, the teen has recently admitted that she feels a little shy when it comes down to ordering her namesake drink, which is a medium-sized beverage that is blended with Dunkin' Cold Brew, whole milk and three pumps of caramel swirl.


Charli D'Amelio Has Girlbossed Her Way Too Close to the Sun

Slate

The influencer-to-reality-star pipeline is real, and now it's claimed its latest victims: TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D'Amelio. The sisters have made the jump from the app's small screen to Hulu, headlining their own reality show about … well, that jump, and the other attempts at off-platform fame they're chasing after becoming TikTok's biggest names. But what the show ends up being is a look at girlboss-ery on overdrive, as these girls try to juggle everything-- even though they may never be able to do so, nor handle the costs. The D'Amelio Show (all eight episodes of which dropped on September 3) follows the two sisters along with their parents, Marc and Heidi, living in Los Angeles and navigating influencer life. Charli D'Amelio, who turns 17 in the final episode of the season, holds the title of the most-followed creator on TikTok with 124 million followers, after shooting to fame in 2019 with her viral dance performance videos.

If creativity flourishes under constraint, then, theoretically, the restrictions of quarantine should be ideal for making art. In practice, this hasn't proved quite true. For the last two and a half months, live-streamed music events have been spotty and chaotic; standup-comedy sets on Instagram Live have been awkward and plagued by technical difficulties. Everyone, from the laymen to the celebrity class, has been rendered amateur. People have begun trying to re-create classic paintings using their pets, and Banksy transformed his bathroom into an art project, making it appear as if it had been overrun by rats.



Charli Howard: Is this really a 'plus-size' model?

BBC News

"Models are models for a reason," the 26-year-old tells BBC News. It's a refreshingly blunt assessment of the workings of the fashion world, and perhaps an unusual one for a member of the inclusion-championing body positivity movement. "You don't want to see your mate Janet in Vogue, you want to see people you can aspire to. I think we want to look for people whose lives seem a bit more glamorous than our own." While Charli thinks models shouldn't look too ordinary (sorry Janet), the key thing is that aspirational beauty "shouldn't be associated with just one body type".
