Well Played, Lake Bell in Marni

Frankly, I think EVERYONE in this photo is bringing Day Dress Awesomeness to this event:

But Lake Bell is the only one whose name I happen to know.

Fugs and Pieces, August 21st, 2015

FRIDAAAAAAY! Thank god it’s here.  Around the internet for your reading pleasure:

– Lainey tackles the newest developments in the Archie Panjabi v. Juliana Marguiles question. It’s a very good read.

– HUGE thanks to The Stripe for including The Royal We on her list of Five Best Summer Beach Reads! (The rest of the list is ace, too.)

– I love this interview with Linda Rodin over at The New Potato. To wit: she recommends two glasses of wine a day.

– OBVIOUSLY I was always going to link to this, at Entertainment Weekly: Kelly Clarkson sings Tinder profiles on Jimmy Kimmel Live

– Also at Jimmy Kimmel and in the same vein, via Cosmo: Josh Groban Sings the Very Best (Well, Worst) of Donald Trump’s Tweets. I LOVE YOU GROBAN.

TV Insider has a really good interview with EP Stephanie Savage about Astronaut Wives Club, which is not AS CANDID as I suspect she could be but which gives you a sense of some of the changes they made in the show, and some of their reasoning behind a lot of their decision making. It’s interesting; she’s obviously super-smart, and this was a really ambitious undertaking. I’d love to hear, five years from now, the really unvarnished experience of making that show.

Let Book Riot introduce you to the Mitford Sisters in this week’s Reading Pathways.

GQ’s interview with Stephen Colbert is wonderful, and moving, and smart. “[T]he thing I’ve been thinking about the most since my time with Colbert is loss. The losses he’s experienced in his life, yes, but really the meaning we all make of our losses. Deaths of loved ones, the phases of our children’s lives hurtling by, jobs and relationships we never imagined would end. All of it. Among other things, our lives are compendiums of loss and change and what we make of it. I’ve never met anyone who’s faced that reality more meaningfully than Stephen Colbert. I suppose, more than anything, that’s what this story is about.”

– This is interesting, on Pajiba: The Life of Marvel Marketing And The Death of Marvel Story Telling

– Here’s a headline for you, via Smithsonian: The Strange Saga of George Washington’s Bedpan

– It’s Read-A-Romance Month! I loved this post by Lauren Willig (I also love her Pink Carnation series).

Elle chatted with Amy Schumer’s stylist. Interestingly, she was also the costume designer for Trainwreck (and a variety of other films).

– Did you hear? Brian Austin Green is no longer so precious to Megan Fox. (Lainey)

– Over at The Guardian: “The Wembley to Soweto Foundation helps disadvantaged young photographers reach their potential. At last year’s World Cup in Brazil, former trainees from Soweto and London’s East End went to the favelas and taught young Brazilian kids the art of photography. Now, they’ve returned to London and taken portraits of their heroes for a new show.” Said heroes involve Idris Elba and Alan Rickman. The pictures are great — the one of Judi Dench is as good as any celeb portrait I’ve seen.

Julianne Hough’s new fiance is VERY cute. (Celebitchy)

Should we all be drinking shrubs? (Cup of Jo)

Look at David Beckham sleeping. LOOK AT HIM! (Grazia)

Royals Round-Up, August 21st 2015

Soon — SO SOON! — summer will be over for the royals of the world and Royals Round-Up will once again be fat and happy. This week, though, we’ve got a special Blue Suit Club appearance from Crown Prince Haakon, and some nice golfing form from Crown Prince Frederik, and a good hat on Sophie Wessex, so all is not yet lost.



GFY Giveaway: MOVIE STAR BY LIZZIE PEPPER by Hilary Liftin

Another prize pack coming your way this week, and it includes sunglasses, which is awesome because — as you are well aware — everyone looks hotter in them:

Movie Star_Giveaway

THE PRIZE: We’re delighted to have THREE prize packs to give away today, pictured above, and each of which includes a signed copy of Movie Star By Lizzie Pepper. Let’s read the back of the book and find out what it’s all about:

“I’ve had a million meetings in my acting career, and I had no idea that this would be the one that would change my life forever. I walked into the room, and there was Rob . . . in the flesh.”

Actress Lizzie Pepper was America’s Girl Next Door and her marriage to Hollywood mega-star Rob Mars was tabloid gold—a whirlwind romance and an elaborate celebrity-studded wedding landed them on the cover of every celebrity weekly. But fame, beauty, and wealth weren’t enough to keep their marriage together. Hollywood’s “It” couple are over—and now Lizzie is going to tell her side of the story.

Celebrity ghostwriter Hilary Liftin chronicles the tabloids’ favorite marriage as Lizzie Pepper realizes that, when the curtain falls, her romance isn’t what she and everyone else thought. From her lonely holidays in sumptuous villas to her husband’s deep commitment to a disconcertingly repressive mind-body group, Lizzie reveals a side of fame that her fans never get to see. Full of twists and turns, Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper is a breathless journey to the heights of Hollywood power and royalty and a life in the spotlight that is nearly impossible to escape.

That certainly sounds like a juicy beach-read for the end of this summer! I hope, wherever she is, Katie Holmes is reading it right now. I suspect she might be extremely sympathetic to the heroine.

THE TASK. I will pick our winners by random draw, but to keep it fun, please choose the celebrity with whom you’d most like to enter a contracted marriage, and why.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. The contest is for US residents only. (Prizing provided by Penguin Random House. Thank you!)


Fugma: Mischa Barton

Could a celebrity in need of some SERIOUS fashion juice entice a stylist to give freebie services by claiming it’s a charitable donation, and thus, a tax write-off?
