Olivia Palermo Finally Designs, Starts with Shoes

We keep hearing about Olivia Palermo becoming a designer but we haven't gotten to see anything she's done quite yet. In the meantime, the stylish one took her fashion sense philanthropic with a collaboration with red carpet favorite Stuart Weitzman. As part of the Young Hollywood Cares Collection, Olivia was only one of four girls, including Scarlett Johansson, Hayden Panettiere and Michelle Trachtenberg, who co-designed shoes with proceeds going towards Harvard professor Marsha Moses' ovarian cancer research.
Olivia was the first of the group to debut the celebrity-designed footwear when she attended The Smurfs world premiere in New York City in late July. Her creation, appropriately dubbed “The Olivia” is an ankle strap sandal with a 4-inch heel trimmed in fuchsia feathers which retails for $425. Olivia paired her new sandals with a neutral off-the-shoulder blouse and an ivory flared maxi by Elizabeth and James.

Kristin Cavallari: Lunch At Spanish Kitchen

Kirstin Cavallari is still keeping her spirits high.
Showing off her summer physique in skin-tight jeans, platform sandals and a billowy top, KCav put her mega watt smile on display for the paparazzi as she had lunch at the Spanish Kitchen in Hollywood on Monday (August 22).
Meanwhile, it sounds like ABC is shaking things up for the new season of Dancing With the Stars.
Last week it was confirmed that Kirstin will appear in the upcoming season of the hit ABC reality show.
Reports are now surfacing that we’ll see a new set – with amphitheater-style seating to make room for another level of seats, staircases that move, a more prominent spot for the orchestra and an elevated dance floor.
Three more names have popped up as possible celeb competitors: soccer star Hope Solo and Chaz Bono, who has recently started following Karina Smirnoff and Mark Ballas on Twitter. Coincidence?
George Clooney‘s ex Elisabetta Canalis has also reportedly signed to show off her dancing skills.

Brody Jenner's Birthday Celebration At Bank Nightclub in Las, Vegas

Brody Jenner celebrated his 28th birthday at The Bank Nightclub at Bellagio with his rocker girlfriend Lavigne and a group of friends from Los Angeles including former “The Hills” alum Frankie Delgado.
The couple arrived in Las Vegas coming straight from Jenner’s step-sister Kim Kardashian’s highly anticipated wedding with New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries. After tweeting to his followers, “The ship has arrived! VEGAS TIME BABY…Gonna be a great one,” the couple joined their friends for a special group dinner at Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge at Bellagio, where the two were spotted cuddling with each other at the table while enjoying Yellowtail’s greatest hits, the Big Eye tuna pizza, rock shrimp and lobster carpaccio by Executive Chef Akira Back.
The group ended their feast by singing “Happy Birthday” to Jenner in Yellowtail’s private dining area. The group then made their way to The Bank Nightclub where they hung out in their VIP section dancing to the sounds by DJ Karma.
While at his table, Jenner was presented with a West Coast beach-themed birthday cake decorated with surfboards, palm trees and the names of Jenner’s favorite surfing spots in California, while Lavigne and his friends toasted the birthday boy. Later in the evening, Jenner and Lavigne chatted with American rapper Gucci Mane, who stopped by their table before getting behind The Bank’s deejay booth to give an impromptu performance of his smash hit “Wasted” to the packed crowd. After enjoying the lively performance, Jenner and Lavigne finished the evening taking one last round of birthday shots with their group before leaving The Bank around 4 a.m.

Whitney Port Visits Texas

When Whitney Port introduced the fall collection of her label, Whitney Eve, at Tootsies in Houston Texas on Thursday August 18, we had a moment to chat about her reality future.
Whit said says while she's not opposed to being on television in the future as a personality or fashion/style expert, Port says "I'm kind of over reality TV [...] I'd never do anything as intimate or invasive as before."
In fact, Port says that she agreed to do The City only to gain publicity for her burgeoning fashion career, which had been long in the making before she was ever cast on The Hills.
When she isn't wearing her own line, Port credits favorite design influencers as Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Isabel Marant and Diane von Furstenberg, for whom she used to work.
Next up for Port? The spring 2012 collection of Whitney Eve will be shown at Coterie in about a month. And the ink isn't dry, so she wouldn't reveal her partner, but fans of Whitney Eve can expect a jewelry line in time for the holidays.
Whitney blogged about her trip:
Hey tootsies!
I just got back from such an amazing and quick trip to Houston, Texas! It sure was hot there, I think it got up to 105 degrees!!!
I went there for a membership drive for the Women of Wardrobe (WOW) event. WOW is the under 40 division of Dressed for Success, which assists disadvantaged women with professional attire and career counseling. The event was hosted at Tootsies, the sales people are so welcoming and the store itself is so beautiful! (I even had a chance to do a little shopping splurge of my own!) I was joined by Shirin Askari, David Peck, and Claudia Labao, fellow designers who were also showing their lines.
These types of events are my absolute favorite. There is nothing more satisfying, as a designer, than seeing women and girls grab my clothes and wear them out the door! I am so proud of this Fall collection and I can’t wait for you all to get your hands on it. If you live in Texas head to Tootsies, in Dallas or Houston, to get your hands on some Whitney Eve! xoxo, Whit

Video: Lauren Conrad & Whitney Port in PSA for Fashion's Night Out Los Angeles

Lauren Conrad Officially joined in on the fashion week festivities by shooting a PSA for Fashion's Night Out Los Angeles! Since LC debuted her Paper Crown line last February and continues to seasonally release her collab with Kohl's, she's been flexing her sinewy fashion muscles.
Not only are we pumped because LC looks effortlessly beautiful in sun-kissed blonde waves, soft eye makeup, glossy lips, and the official FNO T-shirt ( which you can buy for yourself, and 40 percent of proceeds go to New York City AIDS Fund), but she's bringing awareness to a GUH-REAT cause and we looooove that.
But this is just the beginning of LC's FNO festivities—on Sept. 8, you can catch Lauren at Nordstrom at The Grove celebrating the launch of her Paper Crown line! From 6 to 8 p.m. shoppers (aka YOU!) can receive a free one-on-one VIP styling appointment with Ms. Conrad herself and shop the collection firsthand. If you're not lucky enough to score a personal consultation, there will be a general meet and greet/photo signing with LC from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for anyone who's purchased items from her Paper Crown line.
