Everyone loves a good makeover — whether it's a drab-to-fab transformation in the movies or a new blonde bob on your favorite former brunette. This week we are pleased to unveil Us Weekly's new digital look.
We'll still provide all the latest news and juiciest scoop on your favorite celebs, shows, movies, and more — but now it'll be easier to find, faster to load, and more fun to look at. Additional changes and enhancements are on the way, but here are a few of the highlights so far:
BIGGER, BETTER PHOTOS!
We know what you really want to see when you click on a story about Bradley Cooper lounging shirtless on the beach or Beyonce's latest vacation snapshots. Our new site features larger, more dynamic photos on the homepage, on every article, and, of course, in the galleries.
SEAMLESS PHOTO GALLERIES
We also changed how you view slideshows. Instead of clicking a little left-right arrow and waiting for the page to reload every time you want to move on to the next slide, you can now simply scroll down — just as if you're reading an article — to see all the photos in a gallery.
Want to view stories just about your favorite country stars? There's a page for that! How about a one-stop shop for everything you never knew you needed to know about England's royal family? There's a page for that, too. Just click the "More" drop-down menu on the homepage — or at the top of any story you're currently reading.
Once you've reached the bottom of an article, you'll see links to other recent posts about that celebrity or topic.
You can also just keep scrolling to read the next top story. So if Taylor Swift pulls a Beyonce and drops a surprise album while you're reading about JT's lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon, you'll be on top of it.
We always strive to bring you a wide range of coverage, but if you're looking for just the biggest, buzziest stories of the day, you'll find them at the top of your browser in the "Trending Topics" bar. They'll give you a heads up on the hottest celebrity topics of the day.
A BETTER MOBILE EXPERIENCE
Take it with you! The revamped UsMagazine.com is optimized for your mobile device, so it's easy to navigate and read when you're flipping through stories on your phone. We want you to have the best experience possible, whether you're on a computer or on the go.
Take a look around, get acquainted with the new site, and let Us know what you think. We love it — we hope you do, too.
