Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively helped launch Canada's first Target store in Toronto yesterday. Blake wore a Roland Mouret dress and Christian Louboutin shoes while SJP kept things a bit more casual in white jeans. The pair were joined by Canadian actress and Happy Endings star Elisha Cuthbert, who shopped around the store and later gushed about meeting Sarah Jessica. She tweeted, "What a dream, chatting and hanging out with the one and only Sarah Jessica Parker."
Blake is no stranger to the country, as she is married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, and the two hung out there in February while Ryan filmed Queen of the Night. Blake has been taking some time off from work after she wrapped Gossip Girl last year. Meanwhile, her Target shopping buddy SJP is reportedly working on two films and recently checked out the Tilda Swinton sleeping in a box exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Lea Michele was the guest of honour on Saturday night at Sony X Headphones and Nylon's private dinner and party at Mr. C in Beverly Hills. The celebration toasted Lea's cover for the magazine's September TV issue and the launch of Sony's new headphones, which were developed with The X Factor's own Simon Cowell.
Lucy Hale, a newly-engaged Elisha Cuthbert, The Office's B.J. Novak, and The Vampire Diaries actress Kat Graham were among the other notable guests on hand for the soiree. We caught up with Lea before dinner, when she jokingly told us she "begged" the magazine to pick her as the issue's cover girl, and talked about the season premiere of Glee. Lea says that so far this season, most of the scenes she's shot have been opposite Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith and guest star Kate Hudson. Lea hinted that there will be even more big-name cameos announced soon, and said finding out Kate and Sarah Jessica Parker would both be on the show this season was like a dream come true. She said: "When I found out that we had Kate and Sarah, I was like, I'm sorry — does it get any better than that for a girl my age?"
The second annual Comedy Central Comedy Awards took over NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom Saturday night with big names in the funny business stepping out for the show. Amy Poehler, in a bold Black Halo dress, posed with her husband Will Arnett on the red carpet before she picked up the statue for best TV comedy actress for her work on Parks and Recreation. Maya Rudolph and her Bridesmaids co-star Kristen Wiig were both honoured, with Kristen winning for best comedy screenplay and Maya and the rest of the cast landing the title of best comedy film. Other stars, including Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Chevy Chase and Tracy Morgan, took the stage to present.
If the Fall runway collections from , , and are any indication, now is the time to invest in all things sporty — think body-conscious racerback tanks; slouchy, relaxed outerwear; and cool, graphic colour block prints. We can also look to celebrities to glean some inspiration on the trend: Knowles put a louche spin on the trend by pairing a coloured block tee with a pair of slim-fitting trousers while dazzled in a supersexy sheath dress, artfully contoured to streamline the silhouette. Additionally, made a sleek statement in a short-sleeved frock. The sexy sportif trend is easy to achieve; just stick to modern, minimalist shapes, brightly hued colour blocking, and athletic-inspired silhouettes. Ready to get physical?
