Jay-Z Spent $350,000 On Birkin Bags for Wife Beyonce For Christmas

Best husband ever. But then again, Beyonce did buy Jay-Z the world's most expensive car for his birthday. Sounds fair to me!

Chloe Sevigny Resort 2011 LookBook

So my one of my favorite style icons, Miss Chloe Sevigny has become a designer. She has recently launched her first Resort 2011 collection and hired a model who looks pretty like her to demonstrate the pieces.

Every item in Chloe Sevigny’s Resort 2011 collection has been inspired by Chloe’s personal style. I think some of the collection is easy breezy and adorable, yet some seem repetitive of other brands these days. But some pieces look great and can be nice additions to wardrobes of girls who love casual style more than the glam one.

Marc Jacobs Spring/ Summer 2011 Ad Campaign with Masha & Caroline

Oh, Marc Jacobs! I love you! When I saw these photos for the first time I thought about how colorful it actually was, so lively and cheerful. On the runway girls wearing flashy but stylish outfits looked gorgeous. Everything seemed to be just perfect. But now examining the ad campaign pictures with Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Masha Kirsanova I understand that there are too many hues. Despite the fact they look youthful and girlie they can hardly be worn all together in the real life.

Rest In Peace: Model Charles Devoe is Dead

CNN this morning reported that V Magazine is reporting that model Charles Devoe has died. They wrote in a post last night: “It shocks and deeply saddens us to hear of the sudden and tragic passing of Soul Artist Management model Charles Devoe. We always considered Charles to be a part of the V family. Our thoughts go out to all of his friends and family during this time.” No details of the death have been given yet, but I'm sure we the public will find out as soon as it's available. In the meantime, here is some of Devoe’s work. He’s modeled for Anne Klein, Abercrombie, Buffalo Jeans and V, and has been shot by the likes of Mario Testino and Bruce Weber.

Nicole Richie's Wedding Photos Have Arrived!!

Yes!!! It's the moment we all been waiting for (or maybe just me): Nicole Richie’s wedding pictures are here! The photos popped up in both People and German gossip rag In, and some amazing persons scanned them for all the people to see!

An initial peek at Nicole’s dress had us marveling at the poofy Marchesa creation’s 100 yards of tulle, but further analysis proves that I'm pretty obsessed with the dramatic wedding gown. It’s just really, really beautiful. And the skirt comes off to make the dress more dance floor-friendly. And Nicole and Joel’s names are embroidered on the sleeve. Amazing.

Director Blake Edwards Dies at 88

Blake Edwards — who directed notable dramas such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and Days of Wine and Roses but was perhaps best known for his comedies, including Victor/Victoria, The Party, and seven Pink Panther films — died last night in Santa Monica after suffering complications related to pneumonia. He is survived by his wife Julie Andrews, who memorably sent up her own image in the Edwards film S.O.B. Thanks for Breakfast at Tiffany's Blake. It's one of my favorites.

Wow, Gwyneth Paltrow. With That Dress On, I Can See Your...

Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t the definitely not J.Lo. This woman never normally attracts attention with her outfits, but at the screening of her new film Country Strong she surprised everyone with a daring floor-length white Emilio Pucci dress. This definitely has been her most daring dress ever.

Jessica Alba Debuts New Haircut While Dressed In Valentino

Jessica Alba has always been one of the most naturally beautiful actresses in Hollywood, but now with her new haircut she’s also become one of the cutest. At the premiere of Little Fockers Jessica looked absolutely stunning wearing a pretty white dress from Valentino. She completed her look with a pair of silver Louboutins and a couple of stylish handcuffs.

Burberry Prosum Pre-Fall 2011 Sneak Peak

Burberry designer Christopher Bailey has said adios to the biker clothing and welcomed flares and maxi dresses. For Pre-Fall 2011 he’s focused on a sweeter, more subtle affair and in the result you see lots of elegant and even feminine pieces instead of Spring’s spikes and studs. But Burberry Prorsum has to always return to their roots, so it’s not surprising that trench coats are back again, but this time they are classier and more modern.

All The Sketch Ideas For Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding Gown! Vera! Chanel! OMG

 

Chanel

“The Victorian wedding dress, with a twist — high boots and open in the front.” -- Karl Lagerfeld

Christian Lacroix

“Something old: Victorian skirt. Something new: patchwork gown. Something borrowed: Queen Elizabeth’s veil. Something red: Elizabethan top, as red was the wedding color until 1900!” — Christian Lacroix

Nina Ricci

“Light as a feather, layers of lace and organza…a dress fit for a princess.” — Peter Copping, Nina Ricci

Valentino (my favorite!)

“We designed a ‘blossoming’ dress because we imagined her as a new Botticellian Venus.” — Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, Valentino

Gucci (boring)

“I admire the balance Kate Middleton strikes between elegant and contemporary with her unmistakable style. For her wedding dress, I had in mind clean lines, soft shapes and classic touches such as the boat neckline and distinctive train.” — Frida Giannini

Monique Lhuillier

“The royal wedding will be magical. Kate’s dress should be a modern mix of the traditional and contemporary.” -- Monique Lhuillier

Rachel Roy (is this the best?)

“For Kate I would showcase the British tradition with a wonderfully beautiful, yet modern hat worn under a full-length veil with a deconstructed cascade train balancing the formality.” — Rachel Roy

Vera Wang

“The tradition of intricate hand-pieced lacework in the high-necked bodice with elbow-length sleeves, together with the voluminous skirt of a mixture of stiff and soft silk tulle, feels regal, yet poetic.” — Vera Wang

Alberta Ferretti

“I imagine a wedding dress that is romantic but not flamboyant, an embroidered, fluid silhouette dress in precious fabrics that will help her make an everlasting impression.” — Alberta Ferretti

 

....cannot wait to see sketches from McQueen, Dolce and Gabbana, Versace, etc.

First Look At Nicole Richie's Wedding Dress (well, one of them!)

I cannot wait to get my little paws on People magazine this Friday to see the wedding photos! Nicole reportedly wore three different Marchesa creations over the course of the wedding night, including the one pictured which has “a ball-gown skirt crafted from more than 100 yards of hand-draped silk organza and tulle petals.” So. Much. Tulle. The long-sleeved lacy wedding dress literally has the most cotton candy-like skirt I’ve ever seen.

The couple’s daughter Harlow was the flower girl — and their son Sparrow was the ring bearer — at the ceremony which was held at father-of-the-bride Lionel Richie’s Beverly Hills manse. Oh, and apparently an elephant attended the festivities.

Other wedding details: Khloe Kardashian and Samantha Ronson were there, Kim Kardashian and Christina Aguilera were not, Rev Run officiated (how cools is that!?)  and the whole thing went down in a tent that looked like a French garden.

Meet the Four Newest Drama Mamas on Teen Mom 2!

Can't Get Enough Teen Mom? Meet the Four Newest Drama Mamas!
These girls should look familiar to you all- they starred on the last season of 16 & Pregnant. Sadly, Maci, Farrah, Caitlyn and Amber will not be back. I will miss Maci & Caitlyn.

• Leah Messer, a small-town cheerleader from Virginia with twin girls Aliannah and Aleeah, is dealing with the heartache of watching one of her babies develop slower than the other. Leah graduated from high school and tried to make it work with her daughters' father, Corey Simms, but ended up cheating on him.

• Jenelle Evans has a problem with partying. With her baby daddy not around, she leans on her mom for help raising son Jace. She is struggling with the burden of being a young mom, is being sued by her own mom for custody of Jace and we see her sign over temporary custody of the baby. Her mom was an idiot on 16 & Pregnant. Then again, so was her boyfriend. He was famous for screaming foul names at her mother in the driveway of their home, and then exploding at the hospital.

• Chelsea Houska, a softball star and high school dropout from South Dakota, is raising daughter Aubree. The teenager has a crazy relationship with Aubree's dad, Adam, but has a solid relationship with her own father. She's working to get her high school diploma, attend beauty school and figure out where Adam fits in to her life after he called the baby "a mistake."

• Kailyn Lowry, who attempted to hide her pregnancy for months, is now raising baby Isaac, nicknamed "Izzy" with her boyfriend. After her own family threw her out, his family took her in. But the couple's non-stop fighting just keeps escalating.

2010's Biggest Hollywood Splits

The always sexy Ryan Reynolds and wife, actress Scarlett Johannson, ended their 1 year marriage with a seperation this week.

The it-golden teen couple ended their 4 year relationship on a positive note, stating that they will always remain close friends.

Dear Sandra, you are better off without him!

There's a new divorce on Wisteria Lane.

Hand Billy a tish-ue for his achy breaky heart.

Um, not surprised. It was an odd mix to begin with.

The lovely couple split and unfortunately, the post-divorce became bitter and greedy.

The men are cheering after the lovely Plake split.

After watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I am not shocked at all that these two ended in divorce. What shocked me is that they have lasted 13 years. Good grief. The couple split, and he got himself a girlfriend, a quick ring on the finger, and sadly, she suffered a miscarriage in August.

The rumors are that post-seperation, they couple is trying to work things out. I hope so. She is one of my favorite actors and is always charming.

Other couple break-ups...

Jake and Vienna (gee, who's surprised?)

Al & Tipper Gore (they seemed happy)

Bristol & Levi (I really hate these two)

Mel & Oksana (que the recorded meltdowns)

Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato (she needed help then)

Halle Berry & the model (did anyone care about him anyways?)

Kim & Reggie (he lost both trophies this year)

Zack Morris and his home-wrecker wife-who cheated on him with the host of Survivor (yeah, Jeff Probst).

Congratulations Nicole Richie! (Wild Child To Stunning Bride)

I am so happy for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. I feel like I personally know them and should have been invited to the wedding. I'm jk but I do love this family and I think they are so meant to be together. I hope they don't end up like most of celebrity marriages, dividing holidays and signing divorce papers. I truly wish the best for them!

Here's a lookback at the amazing Nicole Richie (I almost forgot about the crazy hair extentions!)

In 2003, a then-unknown and recently rehabbed Nicole Richie (she was busted with heroin in Malibu earlier in the year) headed down to farm country with her BFF Paris Hilton to film The Simple Life. The reality series, which ran for five seasons, chronicled the Beverly Hills besties slumming it in Arkansas. Sanasaaaa Sanasa!

In 2005, Nicole Richie was engaged to the late DJ AM (Adam Goldstein). After they broke-up, they remained very close friends up until his accidental overdose in 2009.

After scaring America with these horrifying photos of anorexia, Nicole Richie admitted to Vanity Fair in 2006, that she was stressed and knew she looked horrible. She did seek treatment and overcame her bad choices.

The DUI's. Mugshots. Driving backwards down a highway ramp, high on cocaine and filled with oxycotin. She admitted to police that she was guilty and said she would accept whatever punishment given by the law.

Arriving to court with her Good Charlotte leading man at her side, Richie pleaded guilty to and was sentenced to four days in jail (she ended up serving 82 minutes in jail, paid a $2,048 fine, got three years' probation term and enrolled in an alcohol education program). The event is bittersweet for the couple, who confirm that the Nicole is pregnant with their first child. "I would really want to be someone my child would look up to," she told Meredith Viera during a special interview on the Today Show, with Madden adding that "marriage is in our future."

Baby bliss arrives for Nicole and Joel, welcoming baby Harlow Winter Kate Madden into their lives, January 11, 2008. Hard to believe she will be turning three this coming January.

Inspired with the positivity in her life, Nicole and Joel started the Richie-Madden Children's Foundation, a non-profit organization benefiting hospitals and local charities.

Now a mom-of-two (she welcomed son Sparrow on Sept. 9, 2009), Richie balances motherhood with her burgeoning career as a designer for her line of jewelry, House of Harlow 1960, and her fashion line, Winter Kate. "I'm a busy mom, but there are 24 hours in the day, and I have a routine down so I can fit everything necessary into my life," she told Elle Magazine.

After three years of dating and two adorable babies, Madden proposes to Richie – and she accepts, showing off her Neil Lane sparkler at the Oscars in March 2010. Despite the bliss and bling, Nicole says it took motherhood for her to realize she was ready to be a wife.

Merry Christmas From The Kardashians..and Odoms..and Scott Disick

Ok. I don't know whether to love this or hate this. From the obvious photoshopping to the over-the-top dresses, the Kardashians certainly know how to make a holiday statement. Adorable Mason in his pin-strip suit is too cute for words and then there is Lamar, who is looking stiff and very much like a butler in this photo. Curvacious Kim is always a delight to see, but how old are her little sisters, again? 14? 13? Anyways, I do love the sentiment of holiday cards, especially those of families. So why is Scott in the photo? Maybe it's to prove to America that he is part of the family, good and bad? I don't know how I feel about him being in this photo, but the over-the-top pageantry of this photo is rediculous.

Reese Witherspoon Looks Stunning at "How Do You Know" Movie Premiere

Reese wore a black Zac Posen dress with pink feather detailing to the premiere of How Do You Know. She paired it with black platform pumps, and no jewelry save for a pair of diamond earrings. Her shoulder-length hair was parted down the middle, and her smoky eye matched her sultry dress.

Beauty Battle: Red vs. Blonde Emma Stone

As a big fan of this summer's hit movie, Easy A, I just want to say that I absolutely adore Emma Stone & her red hair. It's pretty and sets her apart from the rest of Hollywood.  So imagine my disapointment when I learned the starlet dyed her hair blonde for her latest role in the Spider-Man franchise. To be fair, blonde is Emma's natural color, and I'm very supportive of rocking your natural locks, but it's hard not to miss that gorgeous shade of auburn she had before. Above all, though, I think those bangs are awesome. Those are two surefire ways of revitalizing a tired 'do just in time for the holidays!
