Ashlee Simpson models Jessica Simpson’s new clothing line!

Ashlee Simpson is the new face of big sister Jessica Simpson’s clothing line!

The 28-year-old actress modeled Jessica’s new bohemian-inspired outfits in the new fall campaign.

She told People Magazine that it was an honor to do the shoot for her 33-year-old sister, who was pregnant at the time of the shoot.

Legendary photographer and director, Ellen von Unwerth was drafted in to capture the print adverts as well as a behind-the-scenes video.

‘We were all having a good time, kicking dirt in pretty dresses,’ she explained.

When it comes to their personal styles, Ashley, who has just wrapped up a short stint as Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago, admitted that she and her sister could not be more different.

Ashlee really looks beautiful in these new pictures, doesn’t she? I actually really like Jessica’s clothing line. I think she has a really cute, all-American style that a lot of girls really look good in.

Sharon Stone opens up about plastic surgery: “I think that in the art of aging well there’s this sexuality to having those imperfections”

Sharon Stone lands the cover of the summer issue of NEW YOU.  The quarterly magazine features beauty, wellness and anti-aging tips. In this issue, Sharon opens up about plastic surgery, and embracing the aging process. She also offers up her tips for healthy living!

Here are some highlights from the interview:

On aging and a new chapter in life: “Realize that when you are “middle aged” you have a chance for a whole second career, another love, another life. You may be sick of what you did the first half of your life, but you don’t just have to walk around and play golf or do nothing. We’re too young for that. It’s not like fifty is the new thirty. It’s like fifty is the new chapter. We know so much at this age, and people realize we’re the ones with experience. We’re a very colorful generation that is leading once again.”

On embracing the physical changes that come along with aging: “People are afraid of changing; that they’re losing something. They don’t understand that they are also gaining something. I thought I lost the deep vortex on my eyelid that you have when you’re younger, but I gained almost a kind of beautiful abyss. As I lost the fullness in my face, I got in these great cheekbones.”

Sharon’s take on plastic surgery: “If you have things that you want to fix, you should go right ahead and fix them. I don’t think there is anything wrong with cosmetic surgery at all. I think it’s great. But I don’t think it’s alright to distort yourself. You can’t treat an illness with cosmetic surgery, and that’s why it would be great if there were qualified therapists in plastic surgeons’ offices, and that people would go to a therapeutic meeting before plastic surgery. I think that should be part of the FDA requirement.”

Penelope Cruz directs a super-sexy ad for her own Agent Provocateur lingerie!

Penelope Cruz stepped behind the camera to direct a five-minute ad for the Agent Provocateur line she designed with her sister, Monica.

The sexy video features not only her sister, but Spanish actor Miguel Angel. It’s Migeul’s magical sunglasses that lets him see women without their clothes on. He makes his way through a party where he sees women in Penelope’s lingerie. At the end of the video he comes face to face with Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl, Irina Shayk.

“I just didn’t want to show the beautiful bodies of models,” Cruz explains in a behind-the-scenes featurette about the short film. “I wanted to tell a story that could help you connect to what the brand is about.”

Speaking about the experience with WWD recently, the actress added: “[It was] very personal and important for me, a very interesting experience. They gave me all the freedom, and I was able to tell the story I wanted to tell.”

“I used women of all shapes and sizes, as it was important for me to let women know that this brand is for everyone,” she continued. “I chose Irina, as she is such a vivacious woman, and with all the beautiful women in the campaign, I really needed someone who would keep the audience’s attention.”

The new mom — who welcomed her second child, a daughter, on July 22 — also called upon her family for help. Sister Monica, for example, who was nine months pregnant at the time the ad was filmed, makes a brief cameo in the film in a pink lace babydoll chemise from the collection.

“I got my sister a few days before she gave birth,” Cruz says. “I thought she wasn’t going to make it. But she was there, she felt fine…I had her on the set for two hours. She looked so beautiful.”

Penelope’s line will make it’s worldwide debut in stores on August 1.

Sexy is right!

Jennifer Aniston opens up about her maternal instincts in the new Glamour Magazine!

Jennifer Aniston is just all over the place these days! Tons of new candids of her on the set of her new movie, ‘Squirrel to the Nuts,’ and she’s been doing the rounds promoting her upcoming new movie, ‘We’re the Millers.’  We talked earlier about her mostly-kale diet she went on in order to look good as a stripper.

Anyhoo, Jason Sudeikis, who stars opposite Jennifer in ‘We’re the Millers’ actually conducted the interview for Glamour. I love the two of them together. They have great chemistry….they dated for a hot minute, and have starred in three movies together. I think they’re just really cute friends. Here is some of the interview:

Jason Sudeikis: One of the nice things about this movie—and we have now done three together—is that in this one we have a child. In the movie, your character is learning to access her parental instincts. I would argue women are better at that.
Jennifer Aniston: I think that’s just you! I know Justin, for instance, has extremely amazing paternal instincts. Because [growing up] he had to sort of become the parent. I think when you have to become the parent when you’re a younger person, you learn those instincts.

Jason: I noticed on set that you had very maternal instincts with [costar] Emma Roberts.
Jennifer: I did. But she’s wise beyond her years.

Jason: Is that a role that you grew into, or did you find yourself doing that all throughout your life?
Jennifer: I think I’ve done it all throughout my life.

Jason: There’s also a perception of you as being such a gal’s gal. Your ladies love you and the way you take care of people. Like, you’ll sort of point-guard parties and get-togethers.
Jennifer: I love doing that.

Jason: It comes across. I mean, truth be told, you wrote Olivia a really, really kind email last year.
Jennifer: You’ve got a good girl. She’s lovely.
