Serena Williams has proven once again that she's a boss both on the court and off.

The tennis ace posted a picture of herself as Supergirl, along with a caption that explains how she tackled a mugger who took her phone.   

Meanwhile, Heidi Klum won the title of Halloween Queen at the weekend.

The costume legend, who dressed as an old woman last year, sat through nine hours of prosthetics and makeup to transform herself into the cartoon icon, Jessica Rabbit. 

Her star-studded bash saw Gigi Hadid as Sandy from Grease and Jennifer Lopez as the best looking skeleton you could imagine. Elsewhere, Kim Kardashian went as a parody of herself and Anne Hathaway turned into your favourite new emoji. 

See Heidi's transformation and the best A-list snaps in our gallery, below.

  • Serena William proves she's a superhero

    Soooooo yesterday at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me. I was sitting enjoying some Chinese food (delicious may I add) and this guy stands next to me...My phone was sitting in the chair but I just didn't feel right. He was there too long...Than when least expected low and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left. I looked at the chair, than shouted "Omg that dude took my phone!!" Not thinking I reacted (hence the superwoman photo) I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down. He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash! 

    In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster I kindly asked him if he "accidentally" took the wrong phone. He stumbled on his words probably not expecting this to happen...Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!! I've got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm. 

    Always listen to your superhero inner voice. Always keep your things close! Fight for what's right. Stand for what you believe in! Be a superhero! When I got back into the restaurant I received a standing ovation. I was proud. I just showed every man in there I can stand up to bully's and other men. It was a win for the ladies! Just because you are a lady don't be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!


  • Drew Barrymore throwsback

    This is an old pic of one of my best friends of 34 years. Melissa Bochco and I met when I was seven. She and I have seen each other through everything. But most of all we have supported each other and laughed harder together in a way that is greatest thing you can experience in life. SHE is the greatest. And on this Sunday, she is my amazing woman. #amazingwomenweek
