Jay Z and Beyoncé Go Vegan; 2013 Was the Year of the Hipster

And Cara Delevingne covers British Vogue.

Jay Z and Beyoncé Go Vegan: On Tuesday, Jay Z announced on his website, Life + Times, that he and Beyoncé are embarking upon the 22 Days Challenge. The initiative, started by exercise physiologist (and close friend of Jay Z) Marco Borges, consists of 22 days of complete veganism. Jay Z referred to the challenge as "a spiritual and physical cleanse," that began Tuesday, the day before his 44th birthday, and will end on Christmas day. Still, the rapper-turned-mogul is wary of being too hard on his pampered tastebuds—he's asked that, "any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha."

2013 Is the Year of the Hipster: For the first time, Tumblr has published a 'Year in Review,' which seeks to pinpoint the trends of 2013 by tracking the most reblogged hashtags. According to the review, the most popular fashion and trend of 2013 was #hipster. This strange occurence perplexes many fashion insiders, who note that the term is rarely used within the fashion industry. Of course, hashtag use isn't the most accurate relevancy index. Tumblr hashtags are prone to misuse, misinterpretation, and idiosyncrasies (which might explain why a picture of basic blueberries topped the food porn category). Still, the pervasiveness of the #hipster is undeniable, and doesn't appear to be letting up anytime soon. [The Cut]

Cara Delevingne Covers Vogue UK: The January 2014 issue of British Vogue will mark Cara Delevingne's second cover for the magazine. On the cover, Delevingne rocks a more sultry and sophisticated look than fans have come to expect from the self-deprecating, face-pulling celeb. She sports a Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane leopard button-down, a black blazer, and red leather pants. The accompanying article, by Violet Henderson, chronicles the 21-year-old's meteoric rise to superstardom and attempts to dissect the model's irrestible likeability and effortless appeal. [Vogue UK]

Keira Knightley Recycles her Wedding Dress: Actress Keira Knightley has worn her wedding dress not once, not twice, but a grand total of three times. Knightley first wore the chic, short dress in 2008. She then paired the vintage Chanel design with a Chanel jacket, flats, and accompanying flower headpiece for her 2013 French wedding to James Righton. On Tuesday night, Knightley stepped out in the vintage find once again for the SeriousFun London Gala. This time, Knightley updated the frock with embellished sleeves. [PopSugar]
