This year’s post Coachella Levi party, hosted Wednesday night at a The Levi’s Haus in West Hollywood, featured great ambiance amidst beats being slapped in the DJ booth by DJ Billy Jole, Solange Knowles, and Big Boi. Joe Jonas, Alex Spencer, and Justin Chatwin mingled with fellow party-goers in the densely crowded area. People were enjoying the signature beverage of the evening, the “Billy Joel Buzz”, Earl Sweatshirt and Lionel Boyce’s most treasured infused blend of spirits. The DJ duo both wore obsessive amounts of acid wash denim and rocked headsets, much in contrast to the space’s dark wooden floors and animal-skin rugs. The annual invitation-only event, which takes place between Coachella weekends, recognized the classic American vibe of Levi Strauss and its practices to provide highly sustainable products in our innovative world.
A tee-pee…because why not?

By Tuesday night, Hollywood had recovered from its collective Coachella hangover and was ready for a party of a more elegant sort. Jimmy Choo delivered with a glamorous fete at art collector Eugenio López’s Beverly Hills pad, timed to celebrate the reopening of the footwear label’s Rodeo Drive boutique
L.A. is a place of new beginnings. So it’s appropriate that British luxury brand Jimmy Choo should put its best foot forward here now.
A new store design concept on Rodeo Drive, a star-studded Hollywood bash at the home of art collector Eugenio Lopez Alonso featuring a performance by pop band Bastille, and the launch of a youthful new rock ’n’ roll-themed shoe collection are all part of a bold, new direction for the label and its creative director Sandra Choi.
Last night I attended the Road to Hope charity event at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood. Bethany Joy Lenz and her former on-screen sister Lindsey McKeon came out to support as well.
The girls were joined at the benefit by their One Tree Hill co-stars Daniella Alonso, Daphne Zuniga, and Torrey DeVitto, the latter of whom hosted the event. It’s like a reunion!

Love my Torrey!

Zooey Deschanel is a budding fashionista with a new clothing collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger, which she launched on Wednesday at the London Hotel last night in West Hollywood.
According to E!’s Marc Malkin, Zooey also revealed that she’d always wanted to do a line of dresses, and working with Tommy was a dream. And when Marc caught up with Tommy at the party, the designer echoed Zooey’s sentiments; nothing but the highest of praise from these two.
Tommy also broke down exactly how these two collaborated. “We showed her some ideas and she liked them,” explained Tommy. “She knows exactly what she wants, by the way,” he said with a laugh. “And exactly what she doesn’t want.” A girl after our own heart.
Love Tommy as always, but this reminds me a bit of a delta flight attendant!

Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Mara, Elle Fanning: Is this the new generation of leading ladies?
Marie Claire thinks so. Along with “Game of Thrones” starlet Emilia Clarke and Elle Fanning, the group of starlets grace five different covers of the magazine’s May issue which focuses on up-and-coming Hollywood women. Those featured include Lupita Nyong’o,Emilia Clarke, Kate Mara, Elle Fanning, and Elizabeth Olsen.
Kate and Elle, along with Lupita, each grace the May issue of Marie Claire in separate covers and attended a celebration for the covers last night in West Hollywood.
The ladies were seen larking around as they posed together, holding up copies of the magazine, which will come out later this week.
The women pulled funny faces for the camera as they leaned in together, no doubt excited at the honour of snagging the coveted cover.
Such a great sweet 16 gift huh?
Naya Rivera in an interesting outfit - those abs tho!!!
Football fans! NFL draft day is coming, if you haven’t heard from Drake already. Last night, Jennifer Garner brought some serious glamour to the premiere of “Draft Day” in Los Angeles.”Draft Day” focuses on the story of Cleveland Browns - who we pray to God gets at least a few new good players- general manager Sonny Weaver, Jr. (Kevin Costner), who attempts to rebuild his losing team after scoring the No. 1 draft pick. Garner plays a woman named Ali. The film will open in theaters Friday, April 11.
Jennifer Garner looking lovely.

Country music is drawing bigger audiences and more stars to their award shows, and last night was no exception as the 49th annual Academy of Country Music Awards rocked the house at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas (Sunday, April 6th, 2014) . The star-studded event was co-hosted by country heavyweights Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan. Florida Georgia Line (“Cruise”, “This Is How We Roll”) hosted the 4th annual ‘Fan Jam’, and they also won Vocal Duo of the Year. George Strait stole the highly prized position of Entertainer of the Year, and Justin Moore was gifted with New Artist of the Year presented by Kohl’s. The Academy of Country Music Awards is dedicated to honoring and showcasing the biggest names and emerging talent in the country music industry. Aside from hosting duties, Luke Bryan performed “Play It Again” while standing on a revolving replica of a vinyl album, and Blake Shelton took to the stage with a subdued but powerful version of his song “My Eyes”. The two later walked out with helmets on their heads and played a belated April Fools on the audience as they pretended to be Daft Punk.
The ladies of country music killin’ it
Looks like Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton are trying to master the Ellen selfie.
How sweet - Blake and Miranda!

Heads turned Wednesday night at the premiere of the 7th season of “Mad-Men” held at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, CA, as the cast captivated the red carpet and the cameras. The April 2, 2014 premiere showcased Kiernan Shipka, one of the show’s youngest actors, in a floral jacquard purple dress by Nina Ricci and rocking Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” heels. Jessica Pare donned a metallic green Antonio Berardi dress, and Elisabeth Moss kept it sinfully classic with her ‘little black dress’ complimented with a thigh-high slit. Jon Hamm looked as cool as he sounded in his blue suit paired with a white shirt and navy tie, claiming that he had “not seem this first episode yet” and that “there’s plenty of time to be sad, and wistful and nostalgic, but right now I’m excited and proud”. The ambiance was cheerful and uplifting, less somber, as the premiere for the 7th season marks the end of the series. The 7th season of “Mad-Men” will commence this Spring with seven episodes, and will continue on next Spring 2015 with seven more episodes of stylish drama, which will lead up to the highly anticipated, epic season finale. The first half of the split 7th season will premiere on April 13, 2014.
