From Girls to Peter Pan, Allison Williams Just Doesn’t Want to Grow Up

Here’s a bit of pixie dust to sweeten your morning coffee: actress Allison Williams has been cast as Peter Pan in an NBC live musical production set to premiere on December 4. Sure, Neverland is a far cry from the Girls set in New York, but Allison has eagerly awaited this opportunity since childhood. She even donned a Peter Pan costume as a kid, and posted the proof on Instagram.

Of her upcoming role, she joked: “What could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?” On the other end of Allison’s sword, viewers will see the always charming (and sometimes wicked) Christopher Walken in the role of Captain Hook. While it will be tough to rival Walt Disney’s version of the imaginative story, I’ll definitely be tuning in to this star-studded update.

Charleston Style Essentials: The Stars of Southern Charm Spill

It doesn’t take much to get us totally hooked on a Bravo show. Needless to say, the network’s latest creation, Southern Charm, won us over completely. For the uninitiated, the series follows a handful of dapper bachelors navigating the society scene in Charleston, South Carolina. At the center of it all, and often providing the laughs, are the show’s two youngest gents, Craig Conover and Shep Rose. We caught up with them to chat about their newfound fashion fame and what you need to get by (other than charm) in sunny Charleston.

Tom Ford Calls Rihanna’s Instagram the Most Important Thing in Fashion

@Badgalriri’s #1 fan? Tom Ford – which is surprising, considering this is the same designer who used to ban cell phones from his super-exclusive runway shows.

But apparently, Gucci’s former leading man is starting to recognize the importance of social media in the fashion world. In an interview with Style.com, Tom claimed that celebrity Instagrams are now more important than media of the past. Said Tom:

Customers don’t care anymore about reviews or hard-copy publications. They care what picture Rihanna just Instagrammed while she’s naked in bed, what new shoes she has on, how she’s talking about them. That’s what they respond to.

Is he on to something? Only time will tell. But the real question here is whether Tom’s fandom is enough to make RiRi resurrect her Instagram. Because I for one miss her antics. (But could do without the bed shots.)

Oh, Boy: Jimmy Fallon Booed For Dissing Hillary Clinton’s Pantsuits

Late night TV’s new kid on the block, Jimmy Fallon, is used to hearing applause on The Tonight Show. This past Monday night, however, he was met with something very different: boos from the crowd.

During his monologue, the funnyman brought up Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy, and then cracked a joke that went like this: “If it’s a girl, it’ll get some of Chelsea’s old hand-me-downs, and if it’s a boy, it’ll get some of Hillary’s.” The audience seemed, well, unimpressed.

Now, Jimmy. A bit of advice: pick up a copy of Vogue. (Or, even better, become a Rue Member. Hint, hint.)  Not only is menswear on-trend this season, but Hillary’s been nailing the whole power-dressing thing since the 80s.

Don’t get me wrong. Everyone (including me) loves you, Jimmy. Even more so when you’re rapping alongside JT. But when it comes to a woman’s closet, I think it’s best you leave it to the experts.

Jay Z & Beyoncé: Coming to a City Near You

Yes, the undisputed King and Queen of the Music World – or just the world in general – are rumored to be going on tour together this summer. While the duo hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, sources tell Page Six that Bey and Jay will perform at 20 stadiums beginning in late June. There have even been whispers about a July 4 concert in NYC. (Fireworks and this “Crazy in Love” couple? Count me in.)

If their latest Grammy Awards performance was any indication, this show is sure to be one for the books. Clear your summer schedules accordingly.

How did you get started in your career?
I got an internship at ELLE magazine. I initially had a hybrid role working for both the beauty and the features departments. I got to test out hundreds of new products, learn the science and technology behind beauty products, go to press events and, most importantly, I learned how to write (it’s harder than you think!). Interning is the best way to work out if a job is right for you or not. I knew immediately that I wanted to be in the editorial world. When a fashion position opened up at ELLEgirl magazine I jumped at the chance.

Leaving Late-Night: Chelsea Handler Wraps Talk Show

After eight years of witty remarks and oft-raunchy jokes, Chelsea Handler – TV’s sole late-night comedy queen – is stepping down from her E! throne. And now, as Handler gears up to leave Chelsea Lately at the end of this year, we have so many unanswered questions. Who will fill her shoes? What will she do next? And, most importantly: Where will Chuy go?

Chelsea Handler Leaving Talk Show

According to her manager, Irving Azoff, who spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, the comedian has been actively contemplating her post–talk show career. She’s also rumored to be in negotiations with several different “suitors.” Among them? Netflix, FX, and even a few radio stations. The fate of her faithful sidekick, however, remains unknown.
