Anne Hathaway hair tips

Anne Hathaway 'works very closely' with her hair stylist to create her gorgeous red-carpet looks.
The Hollywood actress is famed for her elegant style and chic fashion choices, and always wows with her hair and beauty trends.
Anne’s hair stylist Adir Abergel says Anne has a valuable input when it comes to producing her red-carpet look. Adir also boasts celebrity clients including Jennifer Garner and Kristen Stewart.
'We work very closely together, sometimes I bring the inspiration and other times she does,' he told 'She can say to me, ‘I feel like having something rock and roll,’ and then I have to interpret that into a style that will work on the red carpet and make her feel the part.'
Anne has beautiful tresses that are thick. Adir recommends that ladies with luscious locks tame their hair with 'light' products before styling.
'Make sure that you start out by treating your hair well, like applying a weekly mask to keep it healthy and touchable soft,' he advised. 'Also use conditioning product rather than heavy gels and pomades.

Kanye West Is Finally in the Front Row, Where He Belongs

After not attending any shows at New York Fashion Week, which was a complete travesty until Beyoncé showed up and made up for almost everything boring about the event, Kanye has landed at London Fashion Week. He went to Christopher Kane and then Burberry, where he made Sienna Miller crack up in the front row, while Gemma Arterton and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley politely observed the runway fashion. What funny joke could he possibly be telling Sienna? "Liquid leggings! People say they're out of style but I'm wearing them under my jeans too!" Thoughts?

Marchesa x HP Spring 2012

Marchesa dresses are a gurl’s dream come true, the dresses are so beautiful and well crafted it’s like a piece of art. To further bring out the beauty and life of the dresses, HP celebrated the fusion of fashion and technology with Marchesa. At Marchesa’s Plaza Hotel show, HP captured the fashion house’s Spring 2012 collection with HP Live 3-D. The 3-D images were presented later that evening to special industry guests, including Emma Roberts, Camilla Belle and Rachel Zoe, at the Dream Downtown. Marchesa Co-Founders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were on hand to answer questions about the collaboration and greet guests. HP’s Live 3-D technology brought life to the dresses and made them even more beautiful than they are already. But my favorite is the “tech art” that Marchesa and Swarovski collaborated on a HP laptop. How amazing are the Swarovski encrusted laptops? Unfortunately the art pieces are not available for purchase, they are partially based on a high-end laptop that HP will introduce in the future. HP and Marchesa will also create a limited number of models next year that will be auctioned off for charity.
I asked the designers at the party if there will be a consumer product to be released, they said they really hope so. I’m really hoping HP and Marchesa will be launching a mini netbook or laptop that is similar to the art pieces, that would be super amazing!




Madonna: Kabbalah Service With Brahim & Lourdes

Madonna heads to The Kabbalah Centre on Saturday (September 17) in New York City.
The 53-year-old entertainer arrived with her 14-year-old daughter Lourdes and boyfriend Brahim Zaibat.
Madonna recently shared that like Wallis Simpson in her new movie W.E., her attitude toward romance hasn’t been as positive as it once was.
“When we were young, my sister and I would sit around and say we wanted to marry a cowboy poet. That was the ideal,” she told the L.A. Times.
“And as soon as you have an ideal, the universe conspires to humiliate you. Like you might get that cowboy poet, but they’re a raving lunatic,” she added.

Viva Italia

London was ruled by Italians last night, with both the Fendi and Cavalli families celebrating their newly opened flagships. Jefferson Hack, Shala Monroque, Amanda Harlech, and Rachel Zoe dropped by Fendi's Sloane Street store to see the house's collaboration with students from the Royal College of Art, while CEO Michael Burke showed an installation of roses dyed from color extracted from the label's old bags: "Fendi is all about the senses—sight, touch, feel, smell."

Smell? "Yes, if you dip your head in that handbag right now, you'll have an olfactory experience like never before," Burke said. "Call it 'new bag smell.' " What took Fendi so long to hold an event in London? "We were waiting for the right location. I mean, it has taken us five years to move from over there," he gestured across the street. "Over there," of course, meant Fendi's old stomping ground, and now, the new home of Roberto Cavalli.

After the store portion of the evening, Silvia Venturini Fendi hosted a party at the über-elegant Mark's Club in Mayfair for the likes of Camilla Al Fayed, Lady Amanda Harlech, Gareth Pugh, Marc Newson, and Jacquetta Wheeler. As dinner ended, many of them decamped to the Cavalli mega-party at the Battersea Power Station. The bash included a Dan Williams DJ set, a Cirque du Soleil-type show with semi-naked women (OK, mostly naked women), a surprise set from Kelis, and a guest list starring Ronnie Wood, Bianca Jagger, Rosario Dawson, and Vidal Sassoon.

As Ozwald Boateng walked by surveying the leopard-skin wallpaper and the feather and leather dresses, he said, "Now that's what I call an Italian job."

Ana Beatriz Barros Thinks Models Shouldn’t Start Working Until They’re 18

If Victoria's Secret model Ana Beatriz Barros could begin her career anew, she would not have started when she was 14 years old. "I was way too young. I was a baby. I think people should wait until girls are 18 maybe," the 29-year-old told us at the Juicy Couture store last night, where she celebrated Fashion's Night Out. "I think first they should go to school and then study as much as you can." This season, the CFDA has encouraged designers not to hire models who are under the age of 16. "I think 16 to begin with is too young," continued Barros, who still gets plenty of work as she nears 30. "Today you cannot sell a cream for the women in their forties with a 15-year-old."
Ruby Aldrige, the 22-year-old face of Valentino, also wishes she hadn't started her career at the age of 14. "I left school — I graduated early, when I was 16 years old. I had to put in so much work in order to graduate early. I should have stayed in school," she says. "Sixteen is even so young, you know? You get pushed into this world and it’s so fast paced, and it's very adult, and you want to fit in, so it's hard. Those years are important. Then again, 18 sounds — not old, when I say it, but I’m thinking of models and most of them are much younger than 18." Aldridge advises young models to stay in school longer rather than graduate early: "Those are crucial years."
Annemarieke van Drimmelen, a model turned photographer who now shoots for Vogue, believes the 14- and 15-year-old models aren't the majority of girls booking work. Van Drimmelen, who started modeling at 21, was exhibiting some of her work at the W Times Square last night, including shots of Saskia de Brauw, who is in her thirties. She thinks women "become more interesting" when they are older.
Down at the MAC store in Soho, Beth Ditto offered her non-model perspective: "It can’t be hard to find a model who is over 16. Why is that a problem? Come on, I don’t get it," she said, wondering why brands hire models who are so young. "Are you doing it because they’re flat-chested? Are you doing it because they don’t have hips? Are you doing it for that reason? It’s a really big deal, and that’s the question you should be asking. It’s a child labor issue, but I don’t know. I think I would rather be a model at 14 than work at a Subway, which I had to do. So it just depends on the person and the image and the intention. I don’t know. I have to really think about it."
"But what’s the big deal? There are plenty of women who are anorexic and over 16," she kidded. "But I feel bad because the thing people forget is why that’s there. But whatever. I’ll probably go home and kick myself later for not answering this the way I wanted to. I will think about it. I don’t think you should base your image on something completely unattainable. And it isn’t unattainable for some people — some people look that way — but it’s unfair."
Yet, "There is a market for everybody," said Barros, who considers herself "curvy." "You have the curvy ones and the skinny ones. Also the girls — people don’t understand, they are the way they are. Sometimes they are really skinny, but they are skinny naturally. People say, 'Oh, this is anorexia,' but it's not. I know so many girls, they were born that shape."

Karolina Waz is Thursday’s Top Model

Two of this year's biggest breakthroughs, Emily Baker and Zuzanna Bijoch, made their New York Fashion Week encore appearance yesterday. New Zealander Baker, who stars in campaigns for Gucci and Tommy Hilfiger, scored the final look at Richard Chai LOVE, while Polish Bijoch, who fronts Louis Vuitton and Chloe, closed for BCBG Max Azria. But it was the newbies who snatched the first looks from the rising stars. German rookie Brenda Kranz opened for Chai, while her Ford Models mate Karolina Waz was cast by Russell Marsh to open for BCBG. Ultimately, we award Waz with the win, given the common trajectory of past BCBG openers, ahem, Arizona Muse (spring 2011), Patricia Van Der Vliet (spring 2010), and especially Lara Stone (fall 2007).  See these looks, and more, in the slideshow ahead.

The Meaning Behind Women’s Obsession With Shoes

When Net-a-porter's sale site hosts a Christian Louboutin flash sale, a pair of shoes is sold every nine seconds. All the shoes usually sell out within a couple of hours. This kind of ravenous purchasing behavior is unique to footwear, the site's director Stephanie Phair says: "It’s the fastest shopping we see. Women really do sit on their computers and have insane trigger fingers when it comes to shoes." The new film God Save My Shoes, which the Outnet screened this week, explores why women are so obsessed with shoes. Women's shoes account for 60 percent of the $40 billion worth of shoes sold in the U.S. each year — men's and kid's purchases aren't even half of that — and many of the shoes women buy are totally impractical and uncomfortable. So, why do we do it? What is it about shoes? The film's director Julie Benasra interviewed dozens of shoe obsessives and collectors, like Fergie, Kelly Rowland, and poker player Beth Shak (who has 1,200 pairs) for the film to find out why. Here, she explains:
Why a movie about shoes?
Initially it wasn’t my idea, it was the producer's idea. When he was shooting his previous documentary on the history of sneakers, he was looking at these guys with their crazy sneaker collection, and he was thinking: Men and their sneakers is one thing, but women and their shoes — it’s the next level. Men and their sneakers, it’s a smaller niche, but women and shoes, it’s 90 percent of women.

Were you worried about making women look overly materialistic?
I was. I was afraid that it could sound a little shallow at first, but there are so many layers that are really interesting in the shoe itself — the psychological aspect, the sociological aspect, the pop culture aspect. When the stiletto was invented in the fifties, that’s when Playboy was invented too. But for women, it doesn’t matter what their social level is, whether they can afford $800 Christian Louoboutin shoes or Payless shoes — the emotion, the obsession, is exactly the same.

But how much is there to say about shoes?
I realized there are so many layers, psychologically speaking, socially speaking, culturally speaking — there is this symbolism in shoes. It's a one-hour film, but it could have been three hours long, there is so much to say and so much I didn’t say.

Like what?
The history of shoes is a rich one. I wanted to look into when men were wearing heels, and I think that stopped around the 18th century or something like that, but I didn’t want to do a film on the history of shoes. In the same way that today women feel empowered by high heels, when men were wearing high heels they were considered to be pretty high on the social scale. The best example was the king of France with his red heels — men that were considered to have a huge ego wore heels. Same thing for men that were wearing platform shoes in the seventies — they had a strong ego, too.

I thought the history about shoes that you did include in the film was so interesting.
I spent three or four hours at the Bata shoe museum in Toronto and every single thing [curator Elizabeth Semmelhack] was telling me was fascinating.

Especially those platform shoes women wore around the 1400s.
The Chopines — they look like prehistoric platform shoes. And 54 cm high! They had to walk with servants to help them on either side, which also shows that the family was wealthy.

Why do you think women wear heels now?
I think it’s a combination of two things — when you ask a women why do they love their heels so much? Two words come up: sexy, empowered. Because women feel sexy in their high heels, they feel empowered.

The curator at the shoe museum said in the film that she didn't think stiletto heels were empowering because if they were, businessmen and politicians everywhere would wear them, and they don't.
She thinks it’s more of a sexual tool than an empowering instrument. I believe it empowers women. Because you feel more feminine, you feel that you have more power. Also, you’re taller. When you feel taller, you feel stronger, you stand out. You feel more vulnerable, too — you cannot run, you cannot walk fast. It’s not practical obviously, no. A pair of shoes doesn’t change a man physically. High heels literally change you physically — the buttocks comes out, the legs are more muscular-looking, and you have to walk slower.

So you think women have to feel sexy to feel empowered?
That’s something that maybe has evolved — women nowadays are using their sexuality to their own advantage and they make use of it. Not in a negative way, but they feel empowered by that.

You also asked in the film what the difference is between men who design shoes and women who design shoes.
One of the first things I realized when I started this film is, why is it that all the big-name designers are men? And that’s fascinating to me — they don’t wear the heels, they don’t wear those shoes, and every single one I’ve met I’ve asked them, "Have you tried on heels?" And most did. A man, first, he doesn't care, he’s not going to wear them. Second he’s the one who looks at the shoes — he transposes his fantasies in the shoes. So obviously, he’s not going to make them comfortable. As Christian Louboutin says in the film, when someone fetishizes over shoes, it’s not flat shoes. A female designer will pay more attention to comfort. Obviously, a five-inch heel, no matter who it’s by, is not comfortable, no matter what. So it’s up to us how much we can take the pain.

Why do you think most shoe designers are men?
Even in clothing design most designers are men — the big names like Karl Lagerfeld, McQueen, and Jean Paul Gaultier, and all that, they’re men. I think historically speaking in terms of shoemaking, it was a man’s line of work, it was passed on from father to son. And it’s working the leather — it’s difficult work with the hammer, the nails, and all that, so there’s a historical tradition. I’m not sure if that has to do with designers being male or female. 

How to Hydrate Models During NYFW

During New York Fashion Week presentations, models have to stand for a really long time, like a whole hour sometimes.  Luckily, the crew at Wes Gordon found a way to keep them hydrated.  Gotta keep that skin looking dewy!

Front & Center: Jordana Brewster & Elisha Cuthbert

New York Fashion Week kicked off fashionably early today with BCBG Max Azria’s show at 10AM, but Jordana Brewster isn’t complaining.
“I got up at, like, 5:45. I’m an early riser, so I’m used to it,” she said from the front row, moments before Arizona Muse & Co. took to the runway in sporty-meets-ethnic, sherbet-hued dresses.
Why that early?
“Because I actually wanted to drink coffee and meditate before I got my hair and makeup done,” explained the actress, whose starring in next summer’s Dallas re-make.
Happy Endings’ Elisha Cuthbert (seated by Brewster), meanwhile, is having an early evening, with no Fashion’s Night Out plans. “I’m actually heading back to L.A. tomorrow, so I won’t be doing anything of that sort,” she explained, before adding, “I’d like to catch a bit of tennis before I leave—that will be my after-party. Hopefully a Federer match!”
Brewster is sticking around for a bit longer—she’ll be at Rebecca Taylor tomorrow—but BCBG was high on her list of must-sees because she loves “the color-block that [Max Azria] is doing on the dresses. It’s really cool.”

Lauren Conrad On Paper Crown’s SS Collection

 Lauren Conrad’s been something of a style icon since her early days on The Hills. The Newport Beach native popularized black nail polish, long ombre locks and liquid eyeliner, so turning that trendsetting power into actual design post-reality TV makes sense.
After a false start with her 2008 line, The Lauren Conrad Collection, Conrad’s found her design niche with Paper Crown .  “The majority of my first collection was jersey dresses and it was really branded that way. This one is pretty different,” Conrad says.  But what’s the difference?  Paper Crown closely mimics Conrad’s personal fashion and avoids the LC name-dropping, “I wanted to do an upstairs line that didn’t have my name in the title. I wanted the clothes to stand for themselves.” With four collections already locked in—and stores reportedly selling out of launch items like “hot cakes”—it looks like Paper Crown has legs to stand on.
ELLE: How did you land on the name, Paper Crown?
Lauren Conrad: The story of Paper Crown came from when I use to visit my grandmother. We would always want to play dress up, but she didn’t have my dress up trunk there. So, we would cut things out of paper and make crowns and that was our own way of dressing up.
ELLE: What’s important about keeping the “dress up” spirit?
LC: When you’re little, it’s a game you play; it’s a pastime, something that you love. I think that’s what dressing yourself is all about. It’s having fun with it. It’s self-expression. It’s feeling pretty. I have the most fun with my outfits when I’m dressing to go to a dive bar with my girlfriends and you’re doing something different with your look. But Los Angeles has it’s own laid back take on most trends, we tend to take a more relaxed approach to things that are high fashion in New York.
ELLE: Did you pay attention to any specific trends for the collection?
LC: When you’re dealing with clothing lines, branding is really involved. You study the trends and then you interpret it in your own way. With Paper Crown, our palette is always going to be much softer and more romantic then most of the other colors out there.  You want to incorporate new trends, but still stay true to the brand you’ve created.
ELLE: What’s your design process like?
LC: I wanted to do pieces that were very chic but could also translate into pool wear. I’m a big fan of the cover-up, because I’m the girl who’s afraid of the sun and is rarely in a bikini. So, a top like that is something I could wear tucked into a mini-skirt for a more polished look or something I could wear over a bathing suit.
ELLE: Before you started designing, did you keep a wish list of things to design?
LC: I’ve done that for awhile. I still do that today. We just designed this sweater. I have a similar one that’s too big—the fabric content isn‘t quite right and I don’t love the color—but I love the concept of it. So, I was able to get a really soft knit and do it in this lovely oatmeal. That’s kind of the perk of designing a line, that you’re able to make the pieces you’ve been searching for.
ELLE: What are the staple pieces in your closet right now?
LC: I’ve been wearing a lot of Equipment.  They’re so great because they’re really transitional—I can wear them with skinnies and flats for the day and then layer on a cardigan or a blazer, add a heel, and throw my hair up. I think that’s a really amazing basic. I like them in both the silk and chiffon.
ELLE: Have you spotted anyone in Paper Crown yet?
LC: It just went into stores, but the other day, I was shopping at Ron Herman and the saleswoman a few feet away from me was holding up a pair of my pants and saying it was the last pair. The rest were sold out. It was pretty amazing!
 Paper Crown is now in Nordstrom, Fred Segal, Ron Herman, Planet Blue and other retailers nationwide

Kanye West Moves Possible Show to Paris, Possibly

We’re going to need a flow chart to keep track of the rumors around Kanye West’s fashion collection. There’s been a new factor every few months for what feels like years but it sounds like this season, the rapper really will have something to show for all that work.
To recap, the latest news involved Louise Goldin, a Central St. Martin’s trained knitwear designer who’d been hooked up with West through CSM professor Louise Wilson.  Goldin was said to be helping West with the women’s collection, while Giuseppe Zanotti was handling the shoes and Christine Centenera, who’s Australian, would be styling.  Rumor also had West poised to show the collection at New York Fashion Week—which starts today.
But now, thanks to tweets from @hisssquad (seriously) it sounds like editors will have to wait until Paris to see what West’s cooked up.   They say, “Which ultra-power stylist is now playing in Kayne’s camp for his blue chip Paris showing. And it IS a Paris showing kids!”

Katie Holmes & Suri: Chelsea Piers Pair

Katie Holmes and her 5-year-old daughter Suri head to Chelsea Piers on Thursday (September 8) in NYC.
The 32-year-old actress wore a color block sweater and jeans, while Suri kept it cute in an orange dress.
Earlier in the day, Katie was spotted leaving and returning to her apartment.
Katie is expected to attend a benefit stage reading of Sarah Tuft’s “100 Stories” to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.
The cast, which will assemble tonight and Thursday at NYU’s Skirball Center, also includes Samuel J. Jackson, Melissa Leo, Cynthia Nixon, Jeremy Piven, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler

Kate Middleton Expected to Have an ‘Anti-Kardashian’ Effect on Fashion Week

Kate Middleton is still the girl that everyone can't stop thinking about, even though she hasn't gone into public to do charity work or grocery shop or buy a dress at Whistles in ages (okay, since August 19, but that's a century in Internet time). If last season's shows in New York were "dress[ed] up with a capital D," as André Leon Talley described them, this season's shows are only expected to be even more dressed up. The "model off duty" look popularized by designers like Alexander Wang — messy hair, filmy T-shirts, worn denim — is expected to make way for a ladylike, dressed-up look that the younger generation hasn't ever really tried. This is because, designers and retailers think, Kate makes it seem cool to be polished, clean-looking, conservative, and classic. Showers: yes; grease: no, etc. Ed Burstell, managing director for Liberty of London, calls this "the Kate effect" in the Times. Anna Wintour, whose personal style is very ladylike, also approves!
“There’s nothing trashy or vulgar about her,” said Anna Wintour, the editor of Vogue, which has featured the duchess several times. “She dresses her age and never looks out of place.”
Catherine is, in Mr. Burstell’s term, “the anti-Kardashian,” a bracing antithesis to the strident style and manner of many Hollywood celebrities, who “look so phony by comparison,” he said, “with their paid endorsements and brand-ambassador deals.” Diane Von Furstenberg, whose dresses the duchess has worn, said that she represents a craving for a proper alternative to the “housewives,” a reference to the popular television reality series.
Few would call Catherine adventurous, or even especially chic. “She is no Daphne Guinness,” Ms. Wintour allowed.
The anti-Kardashian — and you've been looking for the perfect three-word way to describe Kate's look. That is so it, and that is so what the world needs.

 Rachel Weisz Covers AnOther Magazine

 2011has been a good year for Rachel Weisz. Not only did she surprise everyone by marrying her "Dream House" co-star Daniel Craig in June, but she has also become quite the cover star.
The 41-year-old actress posed for WSJ. Magazine's Fashion Issue in September, she landed the October cover of Lucky and now she appears in quite dramatic fashion on the Autumn/Winter 2011 issue of AnOther.
Shot by Craig McDean, the cover photo finds Weisz wearing a mustard coat, electric blue eye shadow and bright, matte red lips... and inexplicably, she is holding a goat.
It's a more avant garde turn for Weisz, whose red carpet looks tend towards the simpler side of things.
Then again, she also took it all off for her Bulgari campaign, in which she embraces an oversized Jasmin Noir perfume bottle while lying on a lion. It's hard to know what to expect from this beauty 

Dildo Shoes, Vintage Versace, and a Virtual Rico Catwalk in Nicola Formichetti’s Pop-up

Nicola Formichetti's pop-up concept shop opens to the public today! We stopped by this morning to ogle the studded, spiked, and crystal-encrusted wares. The 1,300-square-foot storefront has been transformed into a mirrored prism by Gage/Clemenceau Architects; even the floors are reflective (staff is on hand to keep the surfaces fingerprint-free). Though the space is a serious eyeful — neon-print Versace pantsuits, six-inch heels, blingy cocktail rings — you've more likely come to gape than to shop. The concept store presents an assemblage of the stylist–fashion director–editor–creative director's many pursuits: menswear and womenswear from the fall 2011 Thierry Mugler collection, styled Haus of Gaga looks, woven and re-purposed Uniqlo garb, leather jackets from his upcoming Schott collaboration, and jewelry and fashion by young designers and friends. The bulk of the jewelry is available for purchase, as well as T-shirts and iPhone cases printed with Formichetti's signature "Nico panda" image. Racks near the entrance bear consignment wares from vintage mainstay Screaming Mimi's, as well as new pieces from emerging designers like Obesity and Speed, Asher Levine, and Astrid Anderson. Click ahead for a look inside the surreal shop.
Nicola's concept shop, 57 Walker St., nr. Broadway; Sept. 8-21.

Fashion Week Style Diaries: Amanda Brooks of Barneys New York, Day One 

"Getting dressed in the morning is the pleasure of my day during Fashion Week," says Amanda Brooks. As the fashion director of Barneys New York, Brooks has some of the most beautiful clothes at her fingertips, but it's really how she puts everything together that adds the extra layer of intrigue. Her knack for picking out just the right extras takes her outfits to a whole other place — usually one of offhanded elegance. "I really, really love to splurge on accessories in a huge way ," she says. We asked Brooks to document her outfits every day during Fashion Week, as she takes in a whirlwind of shows — starting today! Like what you see? The bag and shoes can be purchased at Barneys.
On Brooks: Brooks Brothers button-down (from the boys' department), vintage Chanel leather skirt, Azzedine Alaïa booties, Céline bag, Cartier and Philip Crangi bracelets, rings from Chanel and Brooks's father's grandmother, Chanel umbrella.
About the look: "It may sound like a cliché, but more and more I’m into re-inventing classic clothes with new accessories. Today I’m wearing a white cotton shirt from the boys' department at Brooks Brothers with a black leather pencil skirt from Chanel that I’ve had for years. But what makes this outfit feel right for today are my brand new sky-high Alaïa sandals and my black leather studded Céline bag, which I bought earlier this summer. I felt great until I walked into the first day of my kids’ school and felt completely out of place among the more casual moms in gym gear and sneakers. Oh well, you cant win ‘em all

 Coco Rocha: Blogging Costs Models Jobs

Tumblr-savvy Coco Rocha chatted about the pros and cons of blogging the behind-the-scenes of the modeling world at Lucky's Fashion and Beauty Blogger conference yesterday. "You lose contracts definitely, jobs, because a lot of the models, they don’t want them to talk," she told us. "You’re a face and that’s it; don’t have a personality. But others love that you have a personality."
Rocha uses her blog to do everything from show off her "owling" skills to respond to criticism about her weight. "There was an article that had been mentioned in the newspaper that I was too fat for the runway and I thought 'This is ridiculous.' This was out of context, and I wrote down on the blog what I thought of that," she explained. "And after I realized how well it did, I was like, 'This can go somewhere.' Before it was just fun stories I was talking about, and then I thought, 'Well I’ll talk about everything!'"

Chord Overstreet and Emma Roberts Make Stealth Appearance at Missoni for Target Launch

Target launched its Missoni line with a private shopping event at its 42nd Street pop-up, complete with a celebrity-studded red carpet. Malin Akerman, Amar’e Stoudemire, Allessandra Ambrosio, Rachel Zoe, and Nacho Figueras were among those stocking up on affordable Missoni. “I love shopping. I will shop forever,” Emma Roberts chirped on the red carpet. “I’m a clothing hoarder, so I have a lot of stuff I never wear,” she added.
As soon as we stepped inside we spotted Chord Overstreet dressed down in jeans and a sweatshirt, and he thwarted our attempt to chat him up. “I’m not shopping,” the Glee star told us nervously. “I’m just here.” Huh, we thought, that’s funny, he didn’t even pose for photos. And that’s when we remembered that he and Roberts are an item. But shhh
