Prabal Gurung once again wow’d me with his Spring 2014 collection. We all knew it would be a show to remember when we gathered into the Post Office as the runway was scented and lined with plastic — and then it just got better when the stunning models stepped out.
As many are, I’m a huge fan of Prabal’s so I had extremely high expectations — and his new collection completely lived up to them. The show represented a fresh, new look that was the perfect combination of pastel panels and classy evening wear.
Prabal Gurung Spring 2014
The set up of Prabal’s show was much different than usual as all the models — including the beautiful Karlie Kloss – entered the runway at the same time, into a plastic-looking curtain. They entered out from behind the curtain one by one, where you could immediately hear the gasps of amazement coming from the editors, fashionistsas and celebrities sitting along the outskirts.
“I like the idea of femininity with bite,” Prabal told Vogue after the show — and we agree!
The collection itself was beautiful. The runway was filled with dresses, pant suits and pencil skirts, of all colors — whether it was a baby blue off the shoulder fitted dress, or a red floral pencil skirt, paired with a sheer, mesh, paneled blouse, every piece was neat and perfectly tailored.
The makeup behind the show was flawless in itself. MAC cosmetics’ pastel lipstick was perfect — a good variety of red, orange and lilac lip colors filled the runway. For accessories, Prabal chose his collections of gorgeous Casadei pumps, Chris Habana accessories, and sunglasses by Linda Farrow. At first, I didn’t think sunglasses would go with the glamorous looks, but it was a great touch. Since the plastic curtains resembled a tad of a shower curtain, there was a water theme that seemed to flow throughout — even some of the jackets looked plastic, and the models hair was slicked back into a wet, sleek look.
One of my favorite things about the collection overall was the detailed embroidery, dramatic embellishments and unique cuts, that would work for many young stars. His lavender v-neck dress would be perfect for Taylor Swift — a perfect mixture of classy and sexy. Another cute detail — pocketed dresses. Since Jennifer Lawrence rocks Prabal to a lot of events, we could absolutely see her wearing his new high-neck floor-length gown, mostly black and white — Jennifer’s style, with a highlight of purple.

Sleek and chic are two words that summed up the theme on the runway as the looks were unpolished but oozed confidence! We think both Kristen Stewart and Kate Bosworth would look perfect in these clothes — tell us what you think!
It is definitely a great year for Peter Som as it was announced that he has partnered with Kohl's department store to create high-end but accessible looks for Spring 2014. His clothes did not disappoint when his models walked down the runway on Sept. 6 during New York Fashion Week. His ability to mix masculinity with femininity in his aesthetic was awe inspiring — he continues to amaze us!
Peter Som Spring 2014:
The edgy and cool show was in the Meatpacking District of NYC — what better place to see fierce style? The audience viewed the gorgeous looks, where style and a downtown vibe were combined — the messy, but modern looks would make any girl want to wear this collection! Kristen Stewart and Kate Bosworth both exude confidence and would rock this collection — very fashion forward!
The collection stayed away from using a diverse color palate, and instead stuck with primary colors: blue, black, and white. What really caught our eye was that Peter Som‘s collection featured multiple crop tops — the midriff shirt is back for yet another season!
Cool crop tops were a big staple in this show, and our favorite was paired with a flared mini skirt, perfect for Kristen Stewart — we all know Kristen likes to be comfortable! The masculine vibe of this outfit paired with Kristen's "I don't care" attitude is what defines this collection. This look was not overly feminine, as the dark colors paired with flats really made the look seem effortless — and the little bit of skin really topped off the chic look. We could see Kristen wearing this look at any time of the day!
Though there are many bold colors in this collection, we can't forget that Som added some amazing white pieces that definitely worked well with the different looks. Our favorite was a white crisscross dress that had a few touches of black lines, which balanced the soft, white color. The straight lines on the piece really create a strong and modern image. We think this piece would be ah-mazing on Kate Bosworth– it even has some sex appeal with the exposed midriff! She would look fabulous, and would rock this laid back style like no other.
HollywoodLife.com attended the Jill Stuart show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Sept. 7 and the clothes were sexy yet sophisticated! Jill’s latest collection would look gorgeous on these ladies!
Jill Stuart‘s Spring 2014 collection is a hit! The designer showcased an edgy array of looks, which featured a lot of black, white, crop tops and of course, the baby doll dress. Katy Perry and Rihanna immediately came to mind as the models strutted down the runway!
Jill Stuart’s Spring 2014 Collection — Perfect For Katy Perry & Rihanna
Jill collection is really versatile. You can put on one of her black leather or mesh dresses for a hot date with Mr. Right, or pair one of her crop out ensembles with a pair of gladiator sandals for a tropical vacation.
Katy would look stunning in the crop top and skirt. She has worn outfits like this before in 2013, like at the Kids Choice Awards and at Coachella. Her good pal Rihanna is known for baring a bit more skin, which is why we think this itty-bitty black dress with the plunging mesh neckline will be perfect for her.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Katy and Rihanna will look good in Nicole’s creations?
The guy who famously put sunglasses on a baby in ‘The Hangover’ will soon have a little one of his one! After he and his wife managed to keep her pregnancy secret, it was reported on Sept. 7 that she was close to going into labor!
Surprise, surprise – ZachGalifianakis, 43,and his wife, Quinn Lundberg, are expecting their first child! Like soon — Quinn reportedly went into labor on Sept. 7.
Zach Galifianakis’ Wife Pregnant With First Child
The soon-to-be dad reportedly skipped out on his movie premiere for You Are Here in Toronto, Canada to be by his wife’s side in the delivery room, according to E! News. “We literally found out Friday,” the movie’s director Matthew Weiner said. “Zach is going to be the best dad in the world.”
Zach’s manager admitted to one of the biggest kept secrets in Hollywood, though he clarified to E! News that Quinn isn’t in labor yet — just very close. “[Zach] missed the premiere because his wife is very pregnant and about to give birth and he did not want to take the chance of not being in LA if she went into labor.”
So now Zach is by his wife’s side, a source told Us Weekly. “They are in LA now. Everyone is super excited for them,” the source said.
We don’t know what’s more shocking — that Zach is going to be a dad or that he was able to keep it under wraps for so long! “They have been keeping the baby a secret,” the source also told Us. “They tried as soon as they were married. Zach is going to be an amazing father. They are looking to get a bigger place down the road.”
Zach and Quinn reportedly tied the knot in Vancouver, Canada in August 2012. We couldn’t be happier for them — congrats!
HollywoodLife.com got the scoop on Lifetime’s latest ‘Nightmare,’ from the movie’s bright young star, Peyton List.
Fans of Peyton List, 15,are used to seeing her as bubbly fashionista Emma on Disney Channel’s Jessie– but there’s no laugh track attached to her latest project, the Lifetime original movie A Sister’s Nightmare, premiering Sept. 7 at 8 p.m. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Peyton about taking on such a dramatic role, including what it was like learning how to drown!
Read On For Our Q&A With Peyton List
>> Viewers are used to seeing you on Jessie, which is much lighter than this movie. Did you enjoy getting to take on a more dramatic role?
Before I started Jessie, I was on a more dramatic route. So it was sort of weird for me, doing Wimpy Kid and then Jessie. I had a lot of fun doing A Sister’s Nightmare.
>> Come to think of it, I did see you in another Lifetime movie back in 2010.
Yeah, Secrets In The Walls! That was a lot of fun. And it’s funny, because my dad keeps mixing up the movies. He’ll be like, ‘Secrets In The Walls is coming out,’ and I’ll be like, ‘No, Dad.’
>> I hate when my dad mixes up my Lifetime movies. It’s the worst. … Can you give us a little background on your character?
I play Emily. She’s afraid of drowning, so she has lots of nightmares in the movie about drowning. It was so weird for me, because I had to learn how to be able to sink and look like I was drowning. It was intense, but it was kind of cool. I liked it. And now I can sink in my own pool, and everybody’s always like, ‘Peyton, are you OK?’
>> This movie doubles as a mini Gossip Girl reunion with Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle. Were you a Gossip Girl fan? I feel like that might have been a little before your time.
Yeah, I was pretty young, but I was a secret watcher. My parents let me watch it, but if I went out in public and told people I watched it, they were like, ‘What? You’re way too young for that!’ I actually watched it from the beginning, and I loved it. So I was so excited to be working with them.
>> How is Kelly Rutherford as an on-screen mom?
She’s awesome. She’s so nice, and she’s a mother, too, so she’s just so good. We hung out and talked a lot, she’s really cool.
>> Since this movie is so different from what your fans are used to, what are you excited for them to see?
My dramatic scenes, for sure. I have a lot of crying scenes because my character has night terrors. Nobody’s ever really seen me screaming and crying, so I’m excited for them to see that.
The gorgeous hairstyles at the Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Show on September 6 were inspired by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. TRESemme stylist Jeanie Syfu breaks down the look below!
Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection featured floral patterns and Mexican textures, inspired by icon Frida Kahlo. The wearable hairstyle is easily attainable — get the step-by-step breakdown right here!
Rebecca Minkoff Runway — Boho Braids
For the hairstyle, Rebecca was inspired by two old photos — one of Bianca Jagger in Mexico and another of Frida Kahlo, a strong Mexican woman.
TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu interpreted Frida’s iconic look into an everyday, style. The texture is wearable and modern. Here’s how to get the exact look:
Prep damp hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse and rough dry.
Create a messy zig-zag side part, from the hairline to the center of the nape, and clip to separate.
From the heavier side of the part, take another zig-zag section behind the ear and clip, to create three separate sections.
Back brush hair for texture and create a ponytail in each section, positioned behind the ear.
Tease lengths of hair and spray lightly with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.
Create a 4-strand braid with each ponytail and fasten with an elastic.
Wrap braids around the top of the head, tucking the end of the braids under and fasten with bobby pins.
Finish with TRESemmé Fresh Start Color Care Dry Shampoo for a matte undone look.
Colorful Nails By Essie
To get the exact manicure and pedicure, the experts at Essie break down the look.
To get this Mexican inspired look, apply two coats of tart deco. With a thin dotting tool, draw on "Day of the Dead" designs in butler please, licorice and blanc. Finish with a top coat of good to go.
Pedicure: start with a later of ridge filling base coat, followed by two coats of tart deco, and top off with a coat of good to go.

Domo arigato! The Japanese capital was picked to host the 2020 Olympics after a committee vote in Buenos Aires on Sept. 7.
After hitting London in 2012 and Rio de Janeiro in 2016, the Summer Olympic Games will be back in Asia in 2020, this time in Tokyo, Japan!
Tokyo Will Host 2020 Olympics
The International Olympic Committee made their final vote on Sept. 7, selecting Tokyo over the two other final candidates, Instabul, Turkey and Madrid, Spain, according to CNN.
Tokyo finished first in the first round of voting, and after Madrid was eliminated, the Japanese city was ultimately picked over Instanbul.
Tokyo’s budget bid came in at $5 billion to $6 billion, a measly cost compared to Instanbul’s $19 billion bid. It also helped Tokyo’s case that the city has already amassed $4.9 billion to help pay for the Olympic games.
This will be the second time Tokyo has hosted the games, after doing so in 1964.
The one roadblock for having the games in Tokyo is that cleanup following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant disaster is only progressing slowly. But Prime Minister Shinzo Abe assured the Olympics committee that the city would be totally ready to take on the burden and make all repairs. “Some may have concerns about Fukushima. Let me assure you, the situation is under control. It has never done and will never do any damage to Tokyo,” Shinzo said.
The city is also rich with culture, tradition, and youthful energy and it will be a vibrant host to the rest of the world. And you know citizens of Tokyo are excited — after the selection was announced, members of the Japanese delegation reportedly burst into tears.

Does Kim Kardashian Want To Follow Kanye West On Tour?
The source says that chances are very good that the whole family packs up for the Yeezus tour, because Kanye isn’t the only one who wants to go!
“Kim’s down,” the source asserts. “They’re working on all that now and chances are Kim and the baby are going. Kim wants to anyways and whatever she wants, she gets.”
