Kristin Cavallari is preparing to bid farewell to the Hollywood Hills and say hello to the Windy City once she weds Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The quintessential California girl became engaged to Cutler last month after he proposed during a vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. KCav is eyeing a spring 2012 wedding in Chicago and she's already planning her life after she becomes Mrs. Jay Cutler - starting with her relocation to be closer to her beau. She tells Life & Style magazine, "We aren't going to do long-distance. So I'll eventually move to be with him in Chicago." The 24 year old realizes the big move won't be easy, but she insists it's a sacrifice she's willing to make: "There are things about LA I'm going to miss: The weather is great, and I have all my little spots, like my facialist and the places I like to eat. And, obviously, my friends. But this is just a new, exciting phase of my life."
Whitney Port Chatted with Thread NY recently. Tell us what’s new with your fashion line Whitney Eve? I’m working on my spring collection right now, Spring 2012, and just gearing that up for fashion week. I think the collection has grown a lot and I can’t wait to show it. Any hints on what it’s going to look like? There are a lot of florals in the collection, watercolor florals. What’s the most challenging part of being a designer? I don’t have any formal technical training in fashion. I just kind of went into it blind. I’m just trying to learn through the process. It’s definitely not easy, but I am proud to say that I think I have grown a lot as a designer since I started. Do you have a new respect for fashion designers now that you are one? Yes of course. It takes a lot of training and work to really succeed. There are so many people out there that want to do the exact same thing. You have to really believe that what you are doing people will accept, because this is such an opinion based industry. We’re here celebrating Coco-Cola’s 125th anniversary. Any fashion trends that you think will endure 125 years? Jeans. I think jeans will always be in style. I can’t imagine living in a world without jeans that’s for sure. What's on your summer must-haves list? A good bathing suit. Scarves, you can wear them with anything. A pair of fun sandals. I am loving Missoni Havaianas right now. I have every pair. What summer trends are you loving right now? I am always just into cut-off jean shorts and a white tee-shirt. You really can’t go wrong with that.
