“I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food. When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it. I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard.”
–Angelina Jolie tells The New York Daily News that she’s fed up with super rich, famous moms with armies of nannies and piles of money complaining about how hard their lives are. You can almost hear her muttering “cough … GWYNETH … cough” between the lines here, can’t you? If you’ll recall, a few months ago, Gwynnie made some truly cringe-worthy comments about how her life as a famous, uber rich mom was actually harder than if she was a normal working mom with an office job. Leave it to Angelina to drop a truth bomb on GOOP’s distorted view of reality. [Us Weekly]
Gwen Stefani posted this sexy pregnant selfie (#sexypregnantselfie?) on Twitter yesterday, eliciting a “daaaamn, girl!” from the entire internet. Come on now, what were you expecting? Gwen might be ready to pop, but she’ll probably never be ready to throw on a muumuu and flip flops. Oh, and in case you missed her Instagram announcement, it’s a boy! [Twitter]
How adorable are Sarah Michelle Gellar and her 3-year-old daughter Charlotte Prinze on their way to ballet class?! I couldn’t resit doing a Style Stealer for not just Sarah’s stylish-mom-on-the-go look, but also Charlotte’s little tutu and moto jacket combo (which I would totally wear myself but have dutifully recreated in kids’ sizes). Get all the shopping details for both looks after the jump! Keep reading »
I can remember so many inane details about celebrities (did you know Lily Allen has a third nipple? And that Adrien Brody ate nothing but chicken breast and sweet potatoes to prep for his role in “Predators”?), but every once in awhile, a certain inane detail will fail to stick in my head for whatever reason. The most recent example of this is that Gwen Stefani is currently pregnant. I’m sure I first heard it a couple months ago, but every time I see a picture of her with a little baby bump or read a story about it, I gasp and go, “Gwen Stefani is pregnant again?! How come no one told me?” and then proceed to instantly forget.
So in an effort to both celebrate her awesome rocker style and cement her growing belly in my celebrity pregnancy memory, I’m awarding Gwen with the Street Style Star of the Week award. Whether you love or hate her out-there outfits, at the very least you’ve got to admit that they’re memorable (unlike her pregnancy, apparently?). Click through to check out some of her recent looks!
I don’t usually go super crazy for babies, celebrity or otherwise, but for some reason I’m borderline obsessed with Hilary Duff’s adorable son, Luca. Maybe it’s because he sort of shares a name with Amelia’s adorable dog Lucca, maybe it’s because he’s always dressed in stylish little outfits with a slightly incredulous look on his face, but whatever the reason, I can’t get enough of this kid. And this photo of Luca very seriously pointing at the sky and/or telling the world he’s #1? It’s killing me with cuteness. I’m dead. [Photo: Splash News]
Kate Middleton is becoming the guest that just won’t leave. What started out as a quick post-baby trip to mum’s has turned into a potential six-month stay. And Carole’s like, “Dude. Leave already.” Just kidding. The Duchess could never be an intrusion to anyone, least of all her mother. But Kate really is considering staying at her parents’ Bucklebury home with baby George for a longer time than anticipated. And for a very good reason: Carole is apparently the only one who can get the little prince to sleep. Read more at The Stir…
“I didn’t think I’d have a baby on my own. But there’s a lot that comes out of having a plan and then seeing that there’s another way you can go. If you hold hard and fast to the plan regardless of where you’re at, then you go against the flow of your life.”
–”Nashville” star Connie Britton serves up a mega inspiring dose of truth in an interview with Ladies’ Home Journal about letting life unfold and being brave enough to deviate from your original plans (I just have to let my astrology obsession flag fly for a second here and say she is SUCH an evolved Pisces and I love it). Oh, and between all this awesome life advice, she also dropped a major bombshell: the “Friday Night Lights” movie script is finished (!!!!!). “I think it’s just a matter of finding a time when everyone can do it,” she said of the FNL movie. Dear God, please let this time happen sooner rather than later. Rayna James is great and all, but I need more Tami Taylor in my life. [Us Weekly]
The Hudson-Bellamy family arrived at LAX yesterday, and mama Kate was wearing a pair of seriously acid washed skinny jeans that, for whatever reason, I actually really like. Is it because she paired them with thoroughly modern black pumps and a simple white tank top? Or is it because I’m blinded by baby Bingham’s cute little face? Probably the latter, but whatever, I’m digging this look. [Photo: Splash News]
When Hilary Duff isn’t striking semi-awkward poses at the pilates studio, she’s busy raising her adorable baby son Luca and generally looking fabulous at all times. After scrolling through a good 10-15 of her recent outfits and saying, “Gah! I want to be wearing that right now!” about literally every single one, I thought she deserved some fashion accolades in the form of our Street Style Star of the Week award. Click on the gallery above to check out some of my favorite of Hilary’s looks!
You didn’t know Reese Witherspoon had a twin did you? Oh wait, sorry, that’s the actress’s 13-year-old daughter Ava behind those shades, looking all movie star-esque. Give her another week and she’ll be taller than mom.
