Huffington Post - 8 months
Take note, Kanye West. There is a way to release a music video featuring fully consenting adults that still makes a comment on fame. Who knew? (Everybody.) Fergie premiered the star-studded video for her new single "M.I.L.F. $" on Friday night, featuring famous moms like Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Ciara. And it's T to the A to the S-T-E-Y. Yeah, we kept the E.  Taking inspiration from the '50s housewife aesthetic, the video finds its setting in "Milfville," an idyllic neighborhood where moms are supermodels, the milkman belongs in a J.Crew catalogue and everybody seems dairy very intent on pouring milk all over their bodies. You know, typical mom stuff.  But before the hate tweets about the problematic use of the term “M.I.L.F.,” start rolling in, the 41-year-old singer made a point to tweak the last letter to stand for “follow.” “Changing the acronym to Moms I’d Like To Follow is about empowering women who do it all,” Fergie said ...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
It looks like Lizzie McGuire is all grown up!  On this week's best-dressed list, "Younger" star Hilary Duff stepped out in a sultry red dress that we couldn't get enough of. Not only was the color stunning, but it was a great example of how petite women can get away with a longer hemline.  But there were other stars who taught us style lessons, too. Jessica Biel showed us that orange and black is a combo that shouldn't be ignored beyond Halloween, Amber Valletta made a case for menswear and Jennifer Lopez proved that 'tis the season for white.  Check out our favorite looks of the week and let us know if you agree with our picks.  Also on HuffPost: (function(){var src_url="https://spshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js?playList=519409019&height=&width=100&sid=577&origin=SOLR&videoGroupID=155847&relatedNumOfResults=100&responsive=true&ratio=wide&align=center&relatedMode=2&relatedBottomHeight=60&companionPos=&hasComp ...

These Worst-Dressed Stars Seriously Struck Out This Week
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On this week's worst-dressed list, there were quite a few stars who forgot that Halloween is over. Olivia Palermo was dressed like a witch in a black fringe number, while Rita Ora missed the mark in a voluminous white frock that resembled a swan. Though many celebs disappointed us this week, we were most upset by Sarah Jessica Parker's look. SJP is certainly a style icon, but her pink midi dress paired with black tights was a true sign that she was having an off night. Check out our picks for worst-dressed of the week and let us know if you agree. Sarah Jessica Parker SJP, we know you can do better than this. We understand that you are the queen of kooky silhouettes and trends, but this isn't working. The bubblegum pink dress seems like a confused choice given the season, and the length of the frock is too long to be worn with tights -- it's shortening your legs. Rita Ora What a frightful sight! It looks like the singer is wearing a cotton ball -- there is far too much ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
This Saturday, the biggest stars in Hollywood gathered at the annual LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) Art + Film Gala to honor film director Martin Scorsese and British artist David Hockney. The event, which has been going on for three years now, attracts stars like Jane Fonda, Mary J. Blige and Salma Hayek, and has quickly become one of the most anticipated nights in Tinseltown. Though we're sure the evening was filled with lots of glitz and glamour (there was a musical performance by Sting), we couldn't get passed what went down on the red carpet. While many stars shone (special shout out to Kate Hudson and Olivia Wilde), quite a few couldn't seem to get their footing. Model Amber Valletta confused us in a sheer feather top and very wrinkled pants, while Drew Barrymore captured our attention for the wrong reasons in an oversized sepia print gown that did nothing to show off her lovely figure.
