Summer is prime time for blondes to go on parade, and four of them stepped out sporting incredibly different takes on sexy waves. Actress Leven Rambin sported the braided undercut trend, which she paired with vintage-style waves, while Heidi Klum styled her glossy waves with a sleek side part. Kristin Cavallari opted for full-on Southern California beach waves, and Kate Hudson went for a more soft and relaxed take with her hair. Blondes and waves go together incredibly well, but whose style did you like best?
Amanda Seyfried made a stylish appearance at Allure magazine's Look Better Naked issue launch party in LA last night. The actress donned a black and gray Roland Mouret ensemble as she mingled with the magazine's editor in chief Linda Wells and Hollywood actresses like Naya Rivera, Leven Rambin, and Jennifer Morrison, who celebrates her 34th birthday today. The star-studded event was in honor of Amanda's upcoming April cover, in which she is clothed, while Naya and Jennifer are both featured in stripped-down looks for the publication's seasonal body-image feature.
Amanda will continue her red-carpet run after revealing last night that she will attend the Met Gala for the first time on May 6. Before Amanda prepares for the fashion industry's biggest night, though, she'll start work on A Million Ways to Die in the West with Charlize Theron.
Ready for more Hunger Games casting news? Newcomer Willow Shields will play Prim Everdeen, Katniss's little sister. Prim, also known as Primrose, has a significant role in the stories, since she's the original person selected to compete in the Hunger Games, but is saved from entering when her sister Katniss takes her place.
I like that the casting of the movie is keeping me guessing — while there are some well-known actors like Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and Elizabeth Banks as Effie, plenty of unknowns like Shields are being added too. To boot, more tributes have also been cast — Leven Rambin and Jack Quaid will play Glimmer and Marvel.
As we ease into holiday mode, embrace jackets that shine. You know I'm jacket obsessed and therefore cannot take my eyes off of Daisy Lowe's red satin blazer. Amazing. Red is deliciously bold, but a neutral, like Leven Rambin's, can be thrown atop anything and everything. If you really have a flair for the dramatic, Nina Ricci, who has a penchant for shiny jackets, gets top plaudits. For Spring, the house showed a glowing neutral Edwardian jacket with tailcoats — like no jacket I've ever seen.
You may be curious to know what Nicky Hilton wore to the Ports 1961 and Elle Shop Your Closet book launch party. I know I was. A $1,795 Ports 1961 layered lace dress that by the end of the night morphed into a one-shoulder frock. Lake Bell was also in attendance at the Ports boutique in LA, as was actress Leven Rambin. The night consisted of shopping (duh), sipping on white wine, and reading up on Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet With Style by Melanie Charlton Fascitelli ($14). I won't give away much else. Step inside for the fun.
