Jessica Simpson is on a virtual tour for the paperback edition of Open Book and, like the first time around, she’s pulling out some strong looks. I think the Prada is my favourite. 


How do we feel about a square toe sandal? All the way in? Or is it the kitten heel of 2021? Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has created a line with Gia Couture Firenze and I can’t tell if I like them in theory or for real life. There’s a lot of emphasis on the toes. 

Riley Keough’s brother Benjamin died last summer and she was understandably devastated by the loss. Since then, she has undergone training to become a death doula, someone who consciously helps people through the process of death and grieving, a conversation that is severely lacking in many cultures. What an amazing way to honour him. 


Grief is a heavy and uncomfortable thing to talk about for many and I think that is partly why celebrity deaths elicit such an intense reaction – it’s an opportunity to publicly grieve. We feel a connection to Vanessa Bryant and their children because of this and we check in on them the only way we can: through interviews and social media. Ciara has been by her side the entire time and it’s so nice to see her with her friend.

Hugh Jackman has a reputation for being very nice. There’s no “but” or snark to that, I really mean it. Everyone says he is lovely. That’s partly why Ryan Reynolds dunks on him so effectively. On this innocent puppy photo, Ryan commented, “Hang in there Allegra.” Not even the dog is safe.


Lots of celebrities have written children’s books (Jimmy Fallon, Ricky Martin, Pharrell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lupita Nyong’o, Whoopi Goldberg, Tori Spelling, Julianne Moore, Jay Leno, Kelly Clarkson – this is not a full list). I have a theory on why: books are a popular newborn gift and when browsing, the celebrity name is eye-catching. There are always babies being born, so it can stay in production forever.

Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough are getting into the wine business. You know the words holistic and low calorie made their way into the post. 


Harper Seven doesn’t have any sisters but she is doted on by her brothers, particularly Brooklyn (they are 13 years apart) and now her future sister-in-law Nicola Peltz. They even wear matching outfits, which I’m finding adorable.
