Celeb in 5: Saturday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. The “world’s most beautiful girl” shares 10 year challenge and, yep. Still beautiful.

Remember the most beautiful girl in the world?

Her name is Thylane Blondeau and she was just four years old when she walked the runway for French designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Six years later she appeared in a Tom Ford-edited issue of French Vogue, for which she was dubbed ‘the most beautiful girl in the world’.

That girl is all grown up now, and she’s done her own 10-year challenge photo like everyone else on social media.

The 17-year-old shared her throwback photo to her 2.9 million Instagram followers on earlier this week.

#10yearchallenge ???? !!! And thanks for 2.9M !!! Ily guys so so much

Ten years on, Blondeau is, you guessed it, still beautiful.

She’s also still in fashion – Blondeau is signed to IMG Models and has represented brands such as L’Oréal and Dolce & Gabbana, and in 2017, she placed second in the annual “Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2017”.

Not that it’s a competition, but if the 10-year challenge was won, she might be winning.

2. Why Meghan Markle didn’t go to Kate Middleton’s birthday party.

This past week Kate Middleton celebrated her 37th birthday in style, enjoying a party at Anmer Hall, the ten-bedroom Norfolk home that belongs to the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William.

But there were two guests controversially missing: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, and her husband, Prince Harry.

Naturally, the absence has been interpreted as ~proof~ of a royal feud between Kate and Meghan, but sources say the truth is that Harry and Meghan have taken off on an international holiday for some much-needed me-time.

The rumours of a feud emerged in November last year, when news broke that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be moving to Frogmore Cottage, which is... away from Kate Middleton and Prince William.

Obviously the fact that Prince Harry, a grown adult and expectant father, is moving away from his brother, also a grown adult and father-of-three, can only come down to one thing: their wives hate each other.

Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend are probably the most loveable couple on the internet.

But, like most couples, they have had their big fights.

Speaking about the fight on Watch What Happens Live, the couple revealed their biggest fight to be at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Italian wedding in 2014.

"We try to think about this all the time," Teigen said of the fight.

"It was a major blow out to the point where every time I see them I feel like apologising for it," she added.

Five years on, the couple don't actually remember what the cause of the fight was, but Teigen recalls it coming from a place of insecurity.

On Father’s Day last year, John Legend posted a tribute to his wife as she used her breast pump.

“I know it’s Father’s Day and all but my wife is pretty awesome. She’s taking me to dinner but still on mommy duty,” he wrote alongside a photo of the couple in the car, while the former model and mum-of-two sat pumping milk.

If that ain't love, we don't know what is.

4. Why Kendall Jenner's response to backlash has made fans even angrier.

While there are much bigger problems happening in the world, suffering from acne for me was debilitating. It’s something that I’ve dealt with since I was a young teen and has caused me to feel anxious, helpless and insecure. As humans, I don’t think we share our insecurities enough because we live in a time where being “perfect” is the standard. We curate our life online and pick the pretty moments to post. I’d like to show a younger generation that not everything is perfect. Being insecure about my acne gave me thick skin but I wouldn’t ever wish that feeling upon anyone so after trying countless options, I found something that has been helpful in maintaining clear skin for me. It’s been a long journey but I’m excited for where my skin is now. I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture. My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity. ❤️

It's not a good time to be Kendall Jenner. I mean, there's still the successful career, financial security, loving family, etc. etc. But the 23-year-old reality TV star turned model is certainly going through a bit of a rough patch.

It all began last week, when the Keeping Up with the Kardashians kast member baited her fans with a hyped-up "raw" reveal that turned out to be an endorsement for skincare brand, Proactiv. Kendall's mother, Kris Jenner, had promised a "brave and vulnerable" admission from her second-youngest, but when the paid post was shared, thousands of fans accused the pair of being misleading and overstating the model's skin issues.

Now, Kendall has doubled down, with a second paid post that's earning her yet more criticism (to go with her presumably enormous paycheck).

"While there are much bigger problems happening in the world, suffering from acne for me was debilitating," she wrote. "I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture. My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity."

Though the model previously posted an image to her Instagram story from her teenage years in which she has visible bumps, people were quick to criticise the blemish-free image on her latest post and question how that promotes "skin positivity".

Damned if you do, I guess.

5. Lisa Wilkinson and Mia Freedman have recreated a photo with their babies from 20 years ago.

A post shared by Mia Freedman (@miafreedman) on

The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson and Mamamia’s founder Mia Freedman have gone one better than the #10yrchallenge currently flooding your Instagram and Facebook feed.

They’ve done a #20yrchallenge, re-creating a photo that was taken 20 years ago with their babies, Billi FitzSimons and Luca Lavigne.

In an Instagram post, Mia Freedman posted the two images side by side with the caption:

“When @lisawilkinson was in the Mamamia office to do a shoot for a magazine story about our friendship, it just so happened that the babies we had just days apart, 20 years ago, were there too. @billifiz and @lucalavigne both work at Mamamia and Billi (who has a brilliant content brain) suggested we recreate this photo. So we did. Lisa and I hereby throw down the challenge: share your #20yrchallenge photos. We bet you haven’t changed a bit. None of us have.”

Oh, how time flies, right?
