Paris Hilton, Katharine McPhee and more attend Rachel Zoe’s Resort holiday presentation

Originally published on AOL.com

Rachel Zoe’s Resort 2019 presentation brought out a slew of her A-list besties for a night of holiday glamour.

The 47-year-old designer unveiled her latest collection at her first brick-and-mortar store in Palisades Village. In a room full of sequins, velvet, and metallics, there was no shortage of stars.

Paris and Kathy Hilton had a mother-daughter date as they celebrated the new collection. The newly-single beauty mogul kept it playful as usual, wearing a leopard blouse from Zoe’s collection paired with a leather mini skirt.

Sara and Erin Foster were both dressed to kill in striking black dresses. Sara stunned in a satin mermaid maxi while Erin opted for a chic velvet long sleeve dress, staying in tune with the holiday spirit.

Their future step-mom (or something like that) was also in attendance, looking more glam than ever. Katharine McPhee, who recently got engaged to David Foster, was alluringly cool in a navy sequin plunging power suit.

She’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom!

Meghan Markle’s off-duty outfit is already in your closet

Originally published on AOL.com

There’s something about Meghan Markle’s simple approach to dressing that makes her style so likable. 

While her off-duty wardrobe doesn’t necessarily lend to her larger-than-life lifestyle, the Duchess of Sussex has taught us that there is a time and a place for taking fashion risks (take her recent bright yellow Brandon Maxwell dress for example). 

However, when Meghan is taking a break from her royal duties, she often opts for a simple uniform consisting of a crisp white button-up shirt, skinny jeans and a pair of chic flats. She first made this outfit her signature when she attended the Invictus Games alongside Prince Harry in Toronto last year before she was a Duchess.  

Following the royal couple’s Australian tour, Meghan and Harry were spotted boarding a plane, jet-setting to Fiji. Harry opted for casual khakis and a black shirt while she sported her go-to off-duty uniform. Her $30 J.Crew button-up and under-$200 jeans by Outland paired perfectly with her $550 Aquazzura suede studded mules.

Hailey Baldwin graces first magazine cover as Hailey Bieber

Originally published on AOL.com

Introducing Mrs. Bieber!

The newly-married model just unveiled her first magazine cover as ‘Hailey Bieber’ on the December issue of Vogue Arabia. The blonde-beauty transformed into a glamorous disco diva, paying homage to a modern take on Studio 54. The abundance of pink blush and striking eye-shadow makes Hailey look nearly unrecognizable. “More is More. Hailey Bieber Plays Disco Diva,” the cover reads.

The second cover (which is way more telling of Hailey’s appearance) photographs a refined yet stunning profile of the model, with her massive wedding ring front and center.

When asked how she deals with the new wave of fame since marrying Justin Bieber, she credits downtime on social media as a crucial facet.

“I spend increasingly less time on social media,” she shares. “This has helped me balance everything that comes with this life.”

The Vogue covers come nearly two weeks after the 22-year-old model changed her Instagram handle to her new married name, and even updating her bio to “Hailey Rhode Bieber.”

Nicole Kidman brought the sweetest date to the 2018 ARIA Awards  — her niece!

Taking place in Sydney, Austrailia, Keith Urban hosted the awards, which celebrates the Australian music industry. The power couple cozied up to each other on the red carpet looking more glamorous than ever. Nicole stunned in a pale pink feathered set by Oscar de la Renta while, Keith kept it casual in an acid-wash tee and blazer.

Nicole took to Instagram to share a photo with her 19-year-old niece Lucia. “Going to the #ARIAs with my niece, we’re so excited to see Keith hosting!,” she wrote.

While Keith may have received praises for doing a stellar job as host, he also made sure to make his wife blush by calling her out in the front row.

“Hi everyone, hi Australia, “Hi baby, right in the front row — hi!” he said.

Other stars in attendance were Rita Ora, Troye Sivan, Kacey Chambers and 5 Seconds of Summer.

We’re buying everything from Priyanka Chopra wedding registry

Originally published on AOL.com

Priyanka Chopra has teamed up with Amazon ahead of her big day to unveil her lust-worthy wedding registry.

The actress and future Mrs. Nick Jonas created the ultimate list of must-have items for every bride-to-be. From a chic bar cart (under $200) to travel accessories and cozy throw pillows, we might be shopping Priyanka’s registry for ourselves.

“I’m very excited to begin this new chapter in my life and I’ve selected some of my favorite items to inspire you during yours. I am also so happy that Amazon is making a $100,000 donation to UNICEF, an organization that I hold close to my heart,” said Chopra on behalf of Amazon.

The couple began dating in May and confirmed their engagement in August with a short and sweet Instagram post. The caption read “Taken. With all my heart and soul,” while Nick simply wrote “Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love.”

The “Quantico” actress jet-setted to Amsterdam earlier this month for her star-studded bachelorette party with future sister-in-law, Sophie Turner right by her side.

Sophia Bush gifted everyone on her holiday list donations in their name

Originally published on AOL.com

Forget the toys, candles, and scarves! Sophia Bush will make you rethink your holiday shopping this year.

“This year for me, I already warned all my friends and family and everyone that I work with. I said, ‘all of you guys are getting donations to the United Way of Ventura.’ We’re going to support our community after these terrible fires in California. They are working all over the states to make sure that people have the resources they need and you’ll get a charitable donation with your name on it and happy holidays!” Sophia told AOL in partnership with PayPal.

The “One Tree Hill” alum and vocal activist has teamed up with PayPal for #GivingTuesday to encourage easy mobile donations to over thousands of different organizations.

“One of the things I love about their initiative is I get so much feedback from people who say, ‘okay you’re an advocate,  you do all this charity work. where do you start?’ I realized that starting can feel really overwhelming to people. And so when you go to PayPal.com/giveback, it has basically aggregated all of these charities for you,” Bush explained.  “You can search by cause, you can search by area and find a charity that you know you can trust and you can make your donation through the site and so you know you can trust where your money is going as well. That all feels really good and feels like a great way to help people kick off their giving.”

Aside from her charitable efforts, which include serving as the global ambassador for  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and The Girl Project, Bush is one of the most transparent and vocal celebrities when it comes to the importance of voting.

“I think that having a platform is an incredible privilege. And while I’m never going to tell anyone else how to spend their privilege and what to do with it, I can’t imagine not using my platform to champion causes and to champion truth and to champion kindness. That all feels incredibly important, especially in this day and age,” she told us.

From recently leaving her hit show “Chicago PD” after four years to developing a show of her own, which is currently in pre-production and set to come out after Christmas, the actress doesn’t always have time for a traditional Thanksgiving celebration.

“It depends whether not I’m home because of work. It gets a bit crazy but my friends and I did start an annual tradition where we do our own sort of pre-holiday season kickoff. A little friends dinner party thing, which I love.”

Lili Reinhart is happy we have less ‘old cranky white men’ in office

Originally published on AOL.com

Lili Reinhart embodies the same strong female essence as her “Riverdale” character, Betty Cooper.

The 22-year-old actress has never been shy about speaking out against her naysayers. After publically shutting down body-shamers on social media numerous times, Reinhart unintentionally became the millennial voice for empowering young women — and her refreshing point of view is what garnered her 13.4 million Instagram followers.

“Don’t be afraid to share your struggles even if you think no one is listening, because they are and we always need more voices and more role models who are real and who are willing to talk about their struggles. There’s nothing more powerful than that — to be a woman and say ‘I’m not ashamed of this. I’m not ashamed of what I look like’ or whatever you feel insecurities about,” Reinhart told AOL at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards.  “I think it’s a matter of using your voice even if you think no one can hear you because they can,” she added.

Aside from Reinhart’s unapologetic vision, the actress was one of the many celebrities using their platform to encourage voting in this past midterm elections. After a record number of women won seats in the House, Lili told AOL that ‘it’s just a matter of time before women are running everything.’

“It’s amazing. I am so excited about it. I think it’s about time and this year has been so important for politics. Women know how much power they have and now we are using it. There was a record number of new voters this year and it’s just a matter of time before women are running everything,” she said.

“It’s incredibly encouraging to know that women are helping make the decisions now. It’s like finally, we are not having these old cranky white men make choices about our bodies who couldn’t possibly know what it’s like to be a woman. I am so happy we have that representation.”

We think she’s got a point.

John Legend says ‘women were rightly concerned’ after Donald Trump’s election (exclusive)

Originally published on AOL.com

John Legend caught up with AOL on the red carpet for Glamour’s Women of the Year awards, where his wife, Chrissy Teigen, was honored for her pioneering influence.

On a night where leading ladies were celebrated for their impact and leadership, the “All Of Me” singer expressed his view on the record-breaking number of women elected to the House during the recent midterm elections.

“I think it’s incredible. I think as soon as Donald Trump was elected, a lot of women were rightly concerned about the country’s future and a lot of women stepped up and ran for office. People who have never considered running before had that blend of outrage and hope…and they translated that into action. I think it’s an incredible thing and hopefully, we can elect even more,” John Legend told AOL’s Laura Galvan.

“We should be at the place where it’s not a story that 20 or 30 percent of the house is women but it should be a normal thing that 50 percent of the House are women, and Senate as well,” he added.

The 10-time Grammy-winner famously texted Kanye West this past April after Kanye went on a stint of pro-Trump rants. The rapper took to Twitter to share their intimate conversation (the tweet has now been deleted) in order to show that not everyone around him agrees with him.

“Hey it’s JL. I hope you’ll reconsider aligning yourself with Trump. You’re way too powerful and influential to endorse who he is and what he stands for. As you know, what you say really means something to your fans. They are loyal to you and respect your opinion,” wrote the “All of Me” crooner, 39. “So many people who love you feel so betrayed right now because they know the harm that Trump’s policies cause, especially to people of color. Don’t let this be part of your legacy. You’re the greatest artist of our generation.”

Pretty in pink!

Mandy Moore made a sweet statement with her wedding dress over the weekend. The “This Is Us” actress wed musician Taylor Goldsmith in a pale pink dress at an intimate backyard ceremony in Los Angeles.

Moore traded in the traditional white gown for a modern take on her special day. The Rodarte gown, designed by friends Kate and Laura Mulleavy, was accented with floral appliques just above the tiered-tulle skirt.  Her matching glittery eyeshadow achieved playful elegance while the subtle veil added a dreamy touch.

A Mandy Moore fan page shared a photo of the bride alongside her epic glam squad team: Ashley Streicher, who did her hair, and Jenn Streicher who often creates Moore’s always-perfect red carpet makeup moments

Kim Porter, mother of Diddy’s kids, dead at 47: Report

Originally published on AOL.com

Former model and actress, Kim Porter, died on Thursday at the age of 47 according to TMZ.

Porter famously dated Sean “Diddy” Combs for 13 years and shared three children with the rapper: Jessie James, 11, D’Lila, 11, and Christian Combs, 20.

Law enforcement sources reported to TMZ that they received a “call to Porter’s Toluca Lake home around noon. According to the emergency dispatch audio, the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest.” Another source close to Kim reported that she had been “suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks.”

She had even reportedly called her doctor a day prior to her death, saying that she wasn’t feeling any better.

“Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter,” she said. “I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”

Porter met Diddy at the beginning of his career when he started as a talent director at Uptown Records. The two were on-and-off starting in 1994 and took a long break in 1999, which led to a custody battle over their son, Christian. They eventually broke up for good in July of 2007. While the couple never officially got married, they were known to have a profound love for each other despite rocky times.

Porter also had a son, Quincy, (named after Quincy Jones) from her relationship with R&B crooner Al B. Sure. Diddy also considers him a son. Diddy and his ex, along with their children, were photographed just weeks ago on October 30 at the premiere of Quincy’s film, “The Holiday Calendar.”

Combs is also the father of two other children, son Justin, 24, and daughter Chance, 12, whom he shares with his exes Misa Hylton-Brim and Sarah Chapman.

Earlier on Thursday, Diddy shared a cryptic message on social media, writing, “God protect me from ANYTHING that wasn’t sent by you.” It’s unclear if he was referring to Porter’s death.

Emily Ratajkowski just had her best fashion moment at the 2018 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Originally published on AOL.com

Emily Ratajkowski landed in Australia in one of her coolest looks to date.

The 27-year-old brunette bombshell showed off her abs for the 2018 GQ Australia Men of the Year Awards, where she received the International Woman of the Year award.

Ratajkowski arrived in a mixed-matched look from Paco Rabanne’s latest collection, somehow turning a turtleneck into this season’s sexiest item. Her undone buttons paired with the chain-mail wrap skirt proved the model is not afraid to take a complex approach to fashion.

During the ceremony, the seasoned swimwear designer gave a speech about defying stereotypes.

“I think Woman of the Year is a pretty crazy title. But what I think about what’s important in 2018 for both men and women, it’s about defying stereotypes. It’s about being multi-faceted…It’s about wearing a string bikini on the beach and at a protest.”

Ratajkowski might be known for her sexy Instagrams and barely-there bikinis, but that’s not to say that her keen vocal opinions on modernizing feminism aren’t valid.
