Lauren Conrad is in full prep mode for her upcoming wedding day, and that includes designing the dresses that her bridesmaids will wear.

“The Hills” alum recently launched her own line of bridesmaids dresses. Her Paper Crown clothing line sells 12 different styles, which Conrad and five of her nine bridesmaids modeled in the fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.

“In our collection, we’re only doing a few dresses that aren’t long,” Conrad told the magazine. “We’re doing full-length, a couple midi, and then we have a couple to-the-knee. We didn’t really go shorter than that because it doesn’t really feel appropriate, and if that’s what you want, then you can always shorten the dress.”

The 28-year-old, who is expected to tie the knot with law student William Tell later this year, also dished on how she’s getting her bridesmaids ready for her big day.

After asking her besties to be bridesmaids with a specially designed necklace that looks like her engagement ring along with a “will-you-be-my-bridesmaid” card, Conrad let them choose among different shapes and two colors.

“I don’t mind if there are a few girls in the same dress, or if people are all in different ones,” she told Martha Stewart. “It’s too difficult to take a group of girls and put them in the same color and silhouette; everyone has their own style.”

She added, “They’re all wearing the same two colors, so it’s all the same color scheme. I don’t think it needs to look too cohesive. They’re all individuals, so it’s nice that it doesn’t look too uniform.”

As for hairstyles on the big day, Conrad is letting her bridesmaids do whatever they want.

But, she admits, when it comes to nails she may need to offer some input.

“I was thinking about doing a gift bag and just including a pale pink or a nude in there,” Conrad told the magazine. “I think that’s a nice way to suggest, like, ‘Here’s a pretty color for you.’ Yeah, that might actually be a good call because some of my friends will probably have navy or dark nails!”

Reese Witherspoon transformed into “Pink Lady” Elle Woods from her hit movie “Legally Blonde” to send a hopeful message to a four-year-old boy battling cancer.

The Oscar-winning actress sent the message to four-year-old Will after learning that he was a big fan of “Legally Blonde.”

“This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will – I hear that you’re fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you’ve been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh!” Witherspoon captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding a sign with the hashtag “Team Will.”

“I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor – and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers.

In addition, the mother of three made a short YouTube video titled, “The Pink Lady’s Message To Will.”

Charlize Theron on the Benefits of Getting Older http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2014/08/charlize-theron-on-the-benefits-of-getting-older/ http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2014/08/charlize-theron-on-the-benefits-of-getting-older/#comments Wed, 27 Aug 2014 17:05:16 +0000 Luchina Fisher http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/?p=321120 gty charlize theron jc 140827 16x9 608 Charlize Theron on the Benefits of Getting Older

Charlize Theron thinks women get better with age.

“It’s ironic that we’ve built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f****** concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below [their] belt and feeling hardships, to grow into [their] skin and feel confident within [themselves] and to feel the value of who [they] are, not because of a man or because of something like that,” Theron told the latest issue of Women’s Wear Daily.

Theron called that kind of seasoning, which comes with time and age, “such a beautiful thing.”

“And that’s why I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s,” said the actress, who is 39.

And then for some reason our society treats older women like “a dead flower,” she said. “It’s like we wilt for some reason. And men are like fine wines — the older they get, the better they get. It’s such a misconception, and it’s such a lost opportunity because that’s when I think women are really in the true moment of their sensuality.”

It would seem the Oscar winner, who turns 40 next year, has already reached that moment. A single mother to 2-year-old Jackson, Theron has been dating Sean Penn since earlier this year. And she’ll star in the latest “Mad Max” installment next year.

Theron commented on how motherhood has changed how she approaches her career.

“As far as creativity, it really didn’t change me other than I want my son, of course, you want your son, your children, to be proud of you,” she told WWD. “There’s definitely an element of that. But I also know that that pride comes from a place of real acknowledgment that somebody’s actually living their life for themselves, and I want to be that example for my son.”

She added, “I want him to grow up with a mom that he could see and look at her life with all the mistakes and with all the failures and all the flaws and say, ‘My mom lived an authentic life. That was the life she wanted to live.’”

Four “Dancing With the Stars” pros made a girl’s dream come true when they dropped by for a surprise visit before a performance in Honolulu.

Currently on tour with their show, “Ballroom with a Twist,” professional dancers Val Chmerkovskiy, his brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff and Sharna Burgess met 14-year-old Sophia Robinson backstage before the start of the show Thursday.

Robinson, who is battling cerebral palsy and diabetes, gets around in a wheelchair but her favorite show is “Dancing With the Stars.”

According to ABC affiliate KITV, Robinson’s mother, Ina Ries, arranged the meeting by writing to the show’s producers about her daughter’s health challenges.

A spokeswoman for Honolulu’s Shriners Hospitals for Children, where Robinson is a patient, told ABC News that the teenager began having seizures last December and that her mother “nearly lost her.”

Last week’s visit with the “DWTS” pros was certainly a welcome surprise for the teen, especially meeting her favorite dancer, Val Chmerkovskiy.

The celebrity cast of season 19 will be announced on “Good Morning America” on Sept. 4 at 7 a.m. ET.

Sofia Vergara Tells Critics of Emmys Pedestal Gag to ‘Lighten Up’ http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2014/08/sofia-vergara-tells-critics-of-emmys-pedestal-gag-to-lighten-up/ http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2014/08/sofia-vergara-tells-critics-of-emmys-pedestal-gag-to-lighten-up/#comments Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:57:50 +0000 Luchina Fisher http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/?p=321094 gty sofia vergara jc 140826 16x9 608 Sofia Vergara Tells Critics of Emmys Pedestal Gag to Lighten Up

Sofia Vergara thinks people need to “lighten up.”

The “Modern Family” actress was referring to critics who called her rotating pedestal gag at Monday night’s Emmy Awards sexist.

During the 66th annual awards, Vergara stood on a slowly rotating pedestal, showing off her curves while the president of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Bruce Rosenblum, spoke.

Vergara’s curves were supposed to be a funny distraction from the Academy president’s usual boring speech. Instead, the bit was slammed on Twitter and websites.

Salon called it “a bizarre, objectifying Emmy moment,” while Jezebel fumed, “She was treated like a literal object.”

The Colombian actress and model, 42, didn’t see the stunt as sexist or demeaning.

“I think it’s absolutely the opposite,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself. I think it’s ridiculous that somebody started this – I know who she was – who has no sense of humor [and should] lighten up a little bit.”

Vergara did not expound on who she believes started the criticism.

The backlash certainly didn’t get in the way of her celebrating the fifth consecutive win for “Modern Family” for best comedy series. Vergara was later spotted at HBO’s after party, shaking her famous curves on the dance floor.

‘Suge’ Knight Shot: Rap Mogul No Stranger to Close Calls http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2014/08/suge-knights-close-calls/ http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2014/08/suge-knights-close-calls/#comments Mon, 25 Aug 2014 19:46:36 +0000 Luchina Fisher http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/?p=321075

At 49, former rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has had more close calls than most people experience in a lifetime.

In his latest brush with death, the co-founder of Death Row Records reportedly was shot six times and badly injured early Sunday morning at a pre-MTV Video Music Awards party thrown by Chris Brown at a trendy Los Angeles nightclub.

His family asked for prayers.

“Suge is currently resting and has lost a lot of blood. He’s human,” his family told Revolt TV in an exclusive statement.

Knight is certainly human, but for so long he had seemed invincible, rising from Compton, California, a Los Angeles suburb notorious for gang-related violence, where his childhood nickname was Sugar Bear, to starting the label that was home to some of the biggest names in rap – Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

In the process, he developed a reputation as one of the most powerful and feared figures in the music industry, and trouble seemed to follow him.

Mystery Surrounds ‘Suge’ Knight Nightclub Shooting

The Rise and Fall of Death Row Records

In 1996, Knight began serving five years in prison for a probation violation. While he was in prison, his company languished, and it never recovered after his 2001 release. Knight filed for bankruptcy in 2006, telling his creditors that his bank account contained just $11. He sold Death Row in 2008 and started a new label a year later, but so far hasn’t been able to replicate his earlier success.

“He was hip-hop’s boogeyman,” Keith Murphy, an editor of Vibe magazine, told ABC News in 2008. “You make the bed you lie in. You go around disrespecting people and things are going to come back to you.”

While the investigation into this latest shooting continues, here are a few of Knight’s close calls over the years:

1. Tupac Shakur Shooting

In September 1996, Knight was at the wheel of the car in which Shakur was a passenger when Shakur was shot and killed during a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. Earlier that evening, the pair and their entourage were involved in a brawl at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. While Knight survived unscathed, Shakur died from gunshot wounds six days later. His killer has never been found. After the fight and shooting, Knight, who was on probation for charges including auto theft, attempted murder and carrying a concealed weapon, was sent to prison for violating his probation.

2. Previous VMA Shooting

Sunday wasn’t the first time Knight was injured at a pre-VMAs party. In 2005, he was shot in the leg at a bash hosted by Kanye West in Miami Beach, Florida. Witnesses reported at least six shots fired during the incident. Knight was treated for a fractured leg resulting from a gunshot wound.

3. Knocked Out

In May 2008, Knight was involved in an altercation involving a monetary dispute outside of a nightclub in Hollywood. During the incident, he was knocked out cold for three minutes. But when he came to, he reportedly refused to assist Los Angeles police in the investigation.

Katy Perry’s Britney Spears-inspired VMA outfit earned her high marks from Spears, herself.

After Perry turned up on the red carpet Sunday in the custom denim Versace, she tweeted, “I did my best impression, hope u likey!”

Spears, who was performing in Las Vegas Sunday night, tweeted back: ”Just when I thought the denim dress had retired….you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb.”


Perry found the inspiration for her outfit Friday after exchanging tweets with the “Toxic” singer.

When Spears posted her best Woody Woodpecker impression on Instagram, Perry responded, “This is the best thing I’ve seen all day bb.”

Spears replied with a challenge to Perry: “@katyperry You’re up next. #Noexcuses. You have 24 hours to do your best impression.”

Perry accepted and promised Spears, “I’ll show u my best impression on the red carpet at the VMA’s tomorrow… Wait for it bb.”

Just before walking the carpet, Perry dropped another hint about her dress. “I must admit my outfit is a result of my love for nostalgia and my tumblr addiction,” she tweeted.

Not only did Perry channel Spears, she showed up with her recent collaborator, rapper Riff Raff, in matching custom Versace.

Together, they brought back memories of when Spears and then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake wore the same style outfits at the  28th Annual American Music Awards in 2001.

The MTV Video Music Awards are typically one of the most talked-about awards shows on television, and this year’s ceremony didn’t disappoint.

If you missed the two-hour show, here are five of the biggest moments that your coworkers are sure to be chatting about around the water cooler.

VMAs Pay Tribute to Robin Williams

MTV VMAs 2014: Katy Perry Channels Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake with Denim Versace Dress

VMAs 2014: Nicki Minaj Narrowly Avoids a Wardrobe Malfunction

1. Beyoncé Brings Down the House: Before accepting her Video Vanguard Award, Beyoncé performed an astounding medley of songs from her new album, all while shimmying and shaking in a brightly-colored leotard. Afterward, her husband Jay Z took the stage with their daughter Blue in his arms, and presented the award to the singer, who promptly broke down in tears.

2. Taylor Swift Rings In a New Era: With her first official pop album set to drop in just a few weeks, Taylor Swift is wholeheartedly embracing a new sound. At the VMAs, the singer, clad in a shimmering silver ensemble, completed her first live performance of her catchy new song, “Shake It Off,” which she debuted earlier this week.

3. Sam Smith Deliver an Emotional Performance: There were many performances during the VMAs, but none tugged on viewers’ heartstrings as much as Sam Smith’s emotional rendition of his song, “Stay With Me.”

4. Miley Cyrus Raises Awareness: When Miley Cyrus won the award for Video of the Year, some may have expected her to do something surprising. She did — in the best way. Instead of taking the stage, Cyrus sent a young man named Jesse in her place. Jesse opened up about his experience living on the streets of Los Angeles and encouraged viewers to visit Cyrus’s Facebook to learn more about what they could do to help.

5. Nicki Minaj’s Busy Night: Before joining Jessie J. and Ariana Grande on stage for “Bang Bang” (and nearly suffering a wardrobe malfunction during the number!), Minaj did a provocative dance to her new song “Anaconda.” However, two songs weren’t enough for the rapper, who also joined Usher later for his song, “She Came To Give It To You.”

Beyonce may have come into Sunday night’s Video Music Awards leading the way with eight award nominations, but it was her mysterious yet promised big performance that had everyone talking.

The “Drunk in Love” singer did not disappoint either.

Before the night even began it was announced that Beyonce would be receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement.

So, with that in mind, VMA executive producer Garrett English said her performance tonight would be “gargantuan.” He wasn’t joking.

Beyonce came out in a jeweled outfit singing about love with her song “Mine.”

Blue fire ignited behind the icon as she sang and danced as her outfit shined on stage, while she was surrounded by dancers in all white.

Then, she switched things up and said “MTV welcome to my world,” as she seamlessly transitioned into “Ghost” and “Blow.”

By the time “Drunk in Love” and “Partition” came up, Beyonce had been on stage for almost 20 minutes and with verses from almost her entire latest album.

With almost a full set, Beyonce had the whole stadium, including Katy Perry and Jason Derulo jamming out to the music. They basically got an entire Beyonce concert.

A cute video of her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy popped on screen towards the end of the show, with her baby girl even joining in the lyrics during her daughter’s own song “Blue.”

Then, Jay gave his wife the Vanguard Award and called her the “greatest living entertainer.” While she cried, he kissed and hugged her.

“Blue, Blue, I love you, my beloved, I love you,” she told Jay and Blue while accepting the lifetime achievement award.
