Everyone looks forward to the grand retail extravaganza that is Vogue‘s Fashion Night Out. Held in approximately 19 countries across a week, the U.S — due to Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour‘s dictact — has their big night on the first day of Fashion Week. It’s a smart move because everyone’s in New York then, and those celebrities who don’t need to be there on day one, can enjoy FNO in L.A, the other fashion capital of the country. That’s both coasts taken care of! Hundreds of stores and designers providing special gifts with purchase and exclusive FNO merchandise, discounts and deals. NYC was swarming with stars yesterday for FNO special apperances. AnnaSophia Robb was Fekkai Mademoiselle, Nikki Reed and Kate Upton were at Michael Kors. Nikki looks super hot in a golden sequined dress, FYI. She was the best-dressed of the night! Kellan Lutz, Pharrell Williams and Matchbox 20 were at Bloomingdales. Allison Williams was at the DVF store, while Alexa Chung was at Moschino. Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian made the rounds too, of course. Kim’s little sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and her mother Kris Jenner were at the Beverly Center in L.A. along with Lucy Hale and Kendra Wilkinson, as well. Want to take a look at how glam everyone was? Head on over to our gallery!
The Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue party went down last night in L.A. at the Greystone Manor, and guests took the “hot” part of the invitation quite seriously. Kim Kardashian led the way working it in a sparkling silver strapless dress with neon pink pumps. Carmen Electra looked quite spectacular wearing a beige dress with gold vertical detailing, gathered at the waist. Olivia Munn picked a tight LBD with black booties, with an multi-strand orange necklace for color relief. Yep. Legs galore, right? Other stems that looked equally great were Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett‘s, showcased in a tight blue plunging mini. Jennifer Morrison went that route too, in a flounced frock, and she also debuted a new auburn ‘do. The likes of Shannen Doherty, Monica and Busy Philipps were also spotted wearing little dresses. Aubrey O’Day wore a maxi, but brought out the cleavage. Balancing out all the yin, was some pretty hot yang — Kellan Lutz. ‘Nuff said. Check out the gallery to see for yourself.
Hugh Hefner‘s wedding to Crystal Harris is off, quite out of the blue. The wedding was supposed to be on Saturday but the 24 year-old ex playmate did a bunk after an apparent argument with her Playboy over the weekend. Hef tweeted a confirmation of the news writing, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.” But he’s also said that their supposed argument didn’t happen. Hefner tweeted an explanation that stated, “The TMZ report that Crystal & I ‘had a nasty argument,’ prompting her to call off the wedding, is untrue. There were no arguments.”
This may be small consolation, but at least she walked out before the wedding and didn’t ditch him at the altar or something. The Hef agrees, tweeting, “The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage.” The good news is that he has heaps of support pouring in from everyone, especially from his ex-girlfriends, the Girls Next Door. Holly Madison re-tweeted Kendra Wilkinson‘s message and added her own bit with, “U r too sweet. Wish I was there to support, too! RT @KendraWilkinson:@hughhefner we r comin over w some jack n coke… oh n a pipe lol”.
Also showing some love was Bridget Marquardt who also tweeted, “Just stopped by the mansion 2 give @hughhefner a hug. He seems to be handling this well. He even had a sense of humor about it! #LoveUHef”. He sure does, considering he tweeted, “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: “Runaway Bride.” Seems appropriate.” If anyone can get over this, we believe it’s the Hef. He’s such a rockstar.
We knew someone was going to take a cheap shot at Kirstie Alley‘s weight while she participates on Dancing With The Stars, and George Lopez proved us right. And he made sure it was a really low blow. On Lopez Tonight, Georgie reviewed some of the celebrity participants on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Kendra Wilkinson and Ralph Macchio were included in his little dissertation. But then, in the manner of saving the best for last, came Kirstie.
While barely containing his laughter, Lopez showed a small clip of her dancing and said, “She did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away. Before the show she went to the market, then she had roast beef, and this is her going all the way home.” He then cut to an image of the pig from a Geico commercial. Ha-FREAKIN’-Ha, Lopez. You just called her a pig, and that kind of humor makes you swine. We get it, she’s big. She has a show called Big Life. We just think he took it way too far. Forward to the 2:25 mark to watch him in action. BTW, Kirstie — who is 60 — rocked it on the show. We were surprised because the lady has some serious rhythm! We weren’t the only one’s who thought so, because the judges loved Kirstie’s performance too.
When we saw pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak posing for the cover of In Touch Weekly wearing what looked to be a hand-me down bra and a weird pair of sheer panties last week, we immediate thought to ourselves, “That woman has no shame!” After the shock wore off, we began thinking: A) What other celebrities have flaunted their baby bumps on the cover of national magazines and B) Was their pursuit of fame more naked than their actual bodies?
Well, as we discovered during an intense round of research, there are two types of celebrities who use their unborn children to score themselves more publicity: the Prudes and the Shameless. Not every pregnant celebrity wants to pull a Demi Moore, you see. Some, like Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Celine Dion, don’t want to offend their base by showing too much skin. Others, like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, clearly see Moore’s famous Vanity Fair cover as a necessary (and fun!) step in advancing one’s career and deem it necessary to push cultural boundaries. So, what do your favorite celebrities score on either the Prude Meter™ or Shameless Meter™? There’s only way to find out!
The CoverGirl 50th Anniversary Celebration yesterday in West Hollywood drew its fair share of stars.Drew Barrymore, who we adore, turned up in a bright orange Jil Sander that just missed the mark. We love the color, but we don’t get the weird elastic band around her knees? Also…what’s up with the two-tone hair, Drew? Otherwise, love you, as usual.
The brand’s latest CoverGirl, Taylor Swift also made an appearance, posing for photos with Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Tay looked lovely in a strapless, sequined black dress, but the usual sparkle was missing in her smile, probably due to her split with Jake Gyllenhaal. Other celebrities included Sofia Vergara andQueen Latifah (wearing sunglasses and sneakers), plus starlets like Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Amber Riley, Jessica Lowndes and Sophia Bush. Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and hubby Hank Baskett were hanging out too, with plenty of other ladies! Check them all out in the gallery below and tell us who was dressed best (and worst)?
If you had told us we would one day think Kendra from The Girls Next Door sounded like a raging feminist, we wouldn’t have believed you. But now that she is officially co-chair of the Hot Mommy Club, Kendra Wilkinson is angry about “mom pants,” and other stereotypes women feel pressured to fulfill once they pop out a baby. Expectations like, wearing a shirt that covers your areolas.
In a clip from her show, Kendra raves “Being a mom and everything, it’s hard. Everyone thinks I need to have a turtleneck shirt on and mom pants and act like a total a society robot … and that’s not me.” We, on the other hand, are really looking forward to a nice roomy pair of mom pants. Just let that waist pant ride up; who cares if our abdomens look gigantic? It’s all about comfort.
Explains Wilkinson, “I woke up and realized: Who am I living my life for? Like, I wanna live my life for me. That’s what I am going through right now. It’s time to see the world in your own eyes, not someone else’s eyes, you know?” And if Kendra’s eyes want to see her wearing a teeny tiny bikini while on a ski slope on the lastest cover of Playboy, then by god that’s what they’re going to see! And if everyone else’s eyes get to see that too? So much the better.
