Katy Mixon & Breaux Greer

I was a fan of Mike & Molly and in love with Katy Mixon’s new show, American Housewife. Though the two roles were very different, Katy told Variety that she thought it was amazing and welcomed it with open arms. American Housewife was nominated for a People’s Choice Award for “Favorite New TV Comedy.” Breaux is a retired track and field Olympic athlete and the current record holder of the javelin throw. He was also on the second season of American Gladiators. Katy and Breaux are engaged and had a son in May of this year. They are excited to be parents, and hopefully we’ll see gorgeous wedding pictures soon!

Kaitlin Olson & Rob Mcelhenney

Costars on Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Kaitlin Olson and Rob Mcelhenney got married in 2008. They’ve also purchased Skinners Bar now called Mac’s Tavern in Philadelphia in 2009. Kaitlin currently stars and is executive producer in the hilarious comedy sitcom The Mick. It’s cool to see when celebrities who meet on set end up being happy together. I like their laid back Cali style, that they seem to stay out of the spotlight, which is not your typical Hollywood couple’s move, and its incredibly refreshing. They certainly have their hands full raising 2 kids and working on award winning shows. Kudos!

Steve & Marjorie Harvey

This style savvy couple always grasps my attention. Married in 2007 and grandparents of 4, TV personality and blogger of The Lady Loves Couture make being a fashionable couple look effortless. Steve credits his stylish, ultramodern attire to Marjorie, who changed up his wardrobe, shortening jackets and insisting on slimmer fitting pants. I love her chic, fashion forward style, and together they are an unstoppable power couple.

Wendy Williams + Kevin Hunter

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Starting off in Radio and now a TV Host, actress and fashion designer, Wendy Williams also has a bestselling autobiography in addition to six other novels. She has been married to Kevin Hunter since 1997 and they have a son, Kevin Jr. Wendy’s shares her honest opinions, but guards her privacy, which is probably so good for her family. She has gathered herself quite the following over the years. Her show is fun and engaging and her interactions with her audience make them one of the best on tv. (Its always fun to see the chic fashion!) What I have been struck by most is how fashion plays such a huge part in her career, whether it’s simply commenting on celebrity style or doing a runway on the show, her colorful and appropriate style carries into her fashion line, available on HSM.

Carrie Underwood + Mike Fisher

“Communication, trust, and Skype are key,” says Carrie Underwood on marriage to Mike Fisher since 2010. Another couple who seem to have a great balance in their personal and professional lives. They both seem like down to earth people who would be a lot fun to be around. They also seem to be so supportive of each others careers, most recently as  Fisher’s hockey team, the Nashville Predators, qualified for the Stanley Cup, Carrie was right there in head to toe team colors celebrating and having a blast. More PDA from these two!

Yara Shahidi

One of the stars of the hit show Black-ish, Yara started her career at 6, appearing in a number of advertisements, frequently working alongside her mother and brothers. In 2016, she signed with New York’s Women Management modeling agency, in hopes of providing a platform to see more women of color in diverse roles. Her father is Iranian-American, and her name is Persian for “someone who is close to your heart.” In her spare time she enjoys learning to speak Persian, cooking with her family and learning about the Renaissance.

Even though she is only 17, she has a very sophisticated and mature style that is colorful and fun. I always like to see what she wears on the show and at events. She is very talented and I hope we get to see her acting career and style continue to thrive.

Josh Duhamel + Fergie

In Hollywood, marriages never seem to last that long, but it looks like Josh and Fergie Duhamel have seemed to balance their public and personal lives well and additionally make things work with their family life and raising a son. They recently celebrated their anniversary of 8 years, but it feels like they’ve been together longer than that, so compliments to them! (Also anticipating Fergie’s new album that should be out sometime soon).

Issa Rae

Issa Rae is the creator, co-writer and star of Insecure. After graduating from Stanford in 2007, she did a fellowship in New York. While working on a show pitch, an unfortunate break-in at her apartment resulted in the loss of her equipment and script.[1] She didn’t let that discourage her, instead she created a Youtube Show called Awkward Black Girl. The show was wildly successful, and HBO picked up a pilot similar to her Youtube show, called Insecure, that premiered in October 2016. The show is funny and honest about a twenty something girl living in LA. The show will return for its second season in July. I admire her impressive style very much. Whether casual or formal, the colors are striking and the fits delicate making for unique and tasteful looks. In addition to being nominated for a Golden Globe this year, in 2012 Issa was included on the annual Forbes ’30 Under 30′ list in entertainment. I look forward to following her work, and seeing the new season of Insecure this summer.

Her feminine, quirky style is what captured my attention. On choosing red carpet gowns, she told teen Vogue, “Not everything I put on looks great, unfortunately. But if I’m able to look in the mirror and feel really pretty and know I’m confident enough to walk out and work it? That’s all there is to it.” Its great that she seems to be down to earth and have a positive attitude, which is good since she has been in Hollywood since she was 8. She’s definitely one to keep watching, she’ll return in Pitch Perfect 3 in December.

Emma Stone

With La La Land being the movie of the moment its hard to not hear something or the other about Emma Stone. She is one of my favorite actresses, I love that she keeps a low profile and seems to be level headed and pragmatic.

The story goes that when she was fifteen, she created a powerpoint called Project Hollywood to convince her parents to let to move to LA and become an actress.[1] Her presentation worked, and had since had several successful roles including Easy A, Zombieland, The Help, Crazy, Stupid Love, and The Amazing Spiderman among other films.

She is also an inspiration of mine when it comes to fashion. Whether it be the red carpet or just out on the weekend, she has an elegant minimal style that is so charming. She states that Diane Keaton and Marion Cotillard are style icon of hers, stating that they are sexy and covered up.”[2] She was also named the best dressed woman of 2012 by Vogue magazine and was featured in a similar listing by Glamour in 2013 and 2015. It will be fun to continue following her career and her tasteful style!

Martha Stewart

She was born and raised in New Jersey, and paid for her tuition at Barnard College by modeling, notably with Chanel. While originally planning to major in chemistry, she switched to art, European history, and later architectural history. She graduated with a double major in History and Architectural History.

 

In the 1970’s, she and her then husband Andrew Stewart purchased the 1805 Turkey Hilll Road that would inspire the model of Martha Stewart Living. They also had a daughter, Alexis, but divorced in 1990.

An American businesswoman and publisher of Martha Stewart Living, she has 2 syndicated TV shows and a number of bestselling books. She is majority shareholder with 96% control of voting power of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. In 1999, it went public in the New York Stock Exchange at $18 a share and rallied to $38 by the end of trading. This made Martha the first female, self-made billionaire in the US.

I love Martha’s work and am constantly finding inspiration from her magazine, shows and blog. I also love that she is an animal lover, her pets include chow chow dogs, French bulldogs, Himalayan cats and Friesian horses. She has worked with PETA and the farm animal welfare organization Farm Sanctuary in the past. Its so impressive how successful she has become and so cool that she earned a double major. That takes a lot of discipline. She also has a great sense of humor, her show with Snopp Dogg, Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, is hilarious. Even though I am not half or even a quarter as good at anything as she is, I enjoy her work nonetheless. She truly is an inspiration.

Lauren Graham + Peter Krause

peter-krause-lauren-graham-467

Can I just take a minute to say Gilmore girls a year in the life made me cry it was so good. I won’t give away any spoilers, but its definitely a must watch if you saw the show before. If not binge it all! I had a slightly difficult time working through the second and third episodes, I felt like there was a lot of filler material in them as the storyline weaves entirely through all 4 episodes without a hint at resolvement until the final episode. But it takes you on a trip once it all comes full circle. I have so many questions and so far there won’t be any other episodes, Amy Sherman-Palladino originally planned a cliffhanger when the series ended in its 7th season. However, I hope it continues, I think it could still hold a great story, and with almost all of the original characters making cameos, it would continue to be an inspiring show. I also loved that Lauren Graham’s s/o Peter Krause makes a funny cameo, I loved them both on Parenthood!

Couples

Mila + Ashton

The most down to earth, laid back couple around with the most contagious smiles. It makes me happy to see other people happy.

I’m excited to hear what name they choose for their son, I recently read on Daily Mail that Ashton wanted to name him Hawkeye after University of Iowa’s mascot. (Insert crying emoji here.)

Audrey Hepburn was a film icon and left a legacy behind her. She has been ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest screen legend of the Golden Age. I know could watch Sabrina, Funny Face, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s over and over. I also love that she worked closely with the Red Cross and UNICEF eventually being a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. As she grew up between Belgium, the Netherlands and England, she was fluent in six languages, Dutch, English, and later, Spanish, Italian, French and German.

She is also a fashion icon that I draw so much inspiration from. In 1961, she was put on the International Best Dressed List, stating that her style was minimal with simple silhouettes and monochromatic colors. She has such a beautiful, distinctive style, I thought she’d be the perfect introduction to this new segment of fashion nightmares in celebrating women in fashion!
