Blake Lively crossed a barrier to fix the display of her gown at Kensington Palace

Blake Lively crossed a barrier to fix the display of her gown at Kensington Palace
While I find most of Blake Livelys red carpet looks goofy, she usually does a good job at the Met Gala. To me, the Met Gala isnt a costume ball, to borrow from red carpet bloggers Tom and Lorenzo. The theme should influence how people look but it shouldnt always be super literal (except the one year when the theme was camp). You know, when Jared Leto showed up this year wearing a whole ass cat mascot costume, dressed as a six foot tall Choupette, I rolled my eyes so hard I almost gave myself an ocular migraine. I like that Blakes looks reference the themes and are still dramatic without being completely costume-y. Her preferred aesthetic is also a bit trophy wife but if I looked like that I too would show off my hotness. Her 2022 look, which referenced the Statue of Liberty, featured a dramatic reveal on the stairs where the skirt got changed around. Now that gown is in an exhibit at Kensington Palace called Crown to Couture. Its supposedly about how contemporary red carpet looks reference the 18th century Georgian period, an era between 1714 roughly 1830. I dont know that much about Georgian fashion so Ill have to take their word for it, but it features dresses worn by everybody from Audrey Hepburn to Beyonce to Lizzo, so its probably worth seeing if youre in London. When Blake visited the exhibit, she apparently thought the curators had made a mistake with how they displayed the dress. So she jumped over the rope and adjusted it herself!

On Tuesday, the Gossip Girl alum posted an Instagram story of her jumping over the ropes at the Crown to Couture exhibit in Londons Kensington Palace to quickly alter the display of her famous gown.

?When you?re the clown who hops over the rope at the museum to fix the exhibit,? Lively, 35, captioned over her video. ?Happy almost Virgo season folx.?

?So that you see what the transformation was,? the actress added, while crouched down, before turning the inside of the dress to face outwards on its center part with some assistance from jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz.

Livelys dress appears alongside 200 other pieces at the exhibit inside Princess Dianas former home, including Lizzo?s 2022 Met Gala Thom Browne look and Lady Gaga?s 2020 MTV Awards dress by Christopher John Rogers.

The exhibition also features a number of historic gowns as it tells the story of how rock and red carpet fashion has been influenced by the royals of the Georgian era in the 18th century.

The mom-of-four also took time to admire the crown Schwartz created for her to wear with the dress at the 2022 Met Gala.

?This was absolutely surreal. Seeing this crown that we made in Kensington Palace, Lively captioned a follow-up post of her smiling beside a display cabinet. I still feel like a kid playing dress up every time I get to wear a gown and borrowed jewels out. To see it memorialized like this? just. Wow. Something I?ll never forget.?

There isnt context in the clip from Instagram and its not on her stories anymore so Im guessing she asked the exhibit staff for permission before she did this? The dress was custom-made for Blake and its not like she messed with one of the gowns from the 18th century. But still, it comes off a little bit rude to me. Im sure whoever dressed that mannequin did it with great care. People who work as museum curators or conservationists typically have the most incredible attention to detail. They probably looked at dozens of reference photos and arranged the dress in a certain way on purpose. Plus, the exhibit space is different from the Met Museum steps, so it wont look exactly like it did in that moment when the skirt changed around. I guess it is a Virgo-like thing to do. One of my friends is a Virgo and I lovingly refer to her as an Australian shepherd because she is always herding people and attempting to organize things according to her extremely high standards. But calling it almost Virgo season when its Leo season until the 23rd of August iswell, kind of something Id expect from a fire sign like myself. We cant stand not being in the spotlight.

As an aside, because this story involves Kensington Palace: I lived across the street from Kensington Palace when I studied abroad. We had a few sightings of the princes and Kate. One day my American classmate came home from the high street overjoyed because shed just seen Prince Harry with his protection officer in TK Maxx buying underwear and socks. That was over ten years ago, so when he talked about shopping at TK Maxx in his book, I knew he was telling the truth, however implausible it seemed! (He preferred boxers, in case anyone wondered.)

Britney Spears' memoir could be delayed because of Justin Timberlake & Colin Farrell

Britney Spears' memoir could be delayed because of Justin Timberlake & Colin Farrell
A few weeks ago, Britney Spears announced that her memoir would be released on October 24. The memoir is called The Woman in Me, which seems like a joke from Arrested Development (iykyk). There was a bidding war for the memoir, with Simon & Schuster?s Gallery Books winning the publishing rights. While the cover doesn?t reveal the names of any co-authors or ghostwriters, I would assume that Britney got some help. It?s nothing to be ashamed of Prince Harry had a ghost, and Jessica Simpson had a co-writer. In any case, it looks like the publication date may be moved back a bit because two of Britney?s former lovers are threatening to sue. One of the names is, um, unexpected??

Millions of fans will be desperate to grab a copy of Britney Spears?s memoir when it comes out in October. But Justin Timberlake and Colin Farrell won?t be among them after contesting vast swathes of her book.

I?ve learned that Cry Me A River singer Justin and The Batman actor Colin, both romantically linked to Britney in the early Noughties, caused a four-month delay to the publication over tales she wanted to be included.

Lawyers acting for the pair threatened to sue if Toxic singer Britney didn?t remove intimate details of their clients? lives.

Justin dated Britney from 1999 to 2002, having met her on the set of TV?s The Mickey Mouse Club in 1992. It was claimed in 2003 that Colin and Britney were dating after they were seen out together, but he has denied they were a couple.

A source said: ?Lawyers demanded to see her book in advance and were adamant that some of the revelations were removed. There are still plenty of gobsmacking tales but Justin and Colin were conscious about what could be said about them. The legal process meant the publication was held up by four months as discussions went back and forth about what could be included. But that has finally now been settled and her autobiography is all ready to go.?

[From The Sun]

Wait, so? Justin and Colin both threatened to sue if certain stories were not removed, and so Gallery Books? editors removed those stories and that was it? Or are they still fighting about it? I?m not surprised at all about Timberlake?s tantrums for as much well-deserved sh-t Justin gets for how he treated Janet Jackson, he should get ten times the sh-t for how he treated Britney. As far as I know, Britney and Colin Farrell only had a brief fling/friendship, but it was back when Colin was drinking so? maybe he doesn?t want some of that stuff out there. Anyway, this is actually the best hype for the book: Britney?s exes are salty about it.

Kristen Bell's kids order non-alcoholic beers at restaurants: 'judge me if you want'

Kristen Bell's kids order non-alcoholic beers at restaurants: 'judge me if you want'
It is still so funny to me that Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard make this big deal about ?protecting their children from being photographed,? yet they are constantly telling their kids? business to everyone. While I have no idea what Delta and Lincoln Shepard look like, I already know way too much about them, including how infrequently they bathe, and how they don?t shower until they ?stink.? Well, for years, Kristen has been telling everyone that her kids drink non-alcoholic beers. She told the story again this week while appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show, and Kristen added a new twist. Her daughters (aged 8 and 9 years old) actually order non-alcoholic beer in restaurants now.

Kristen Bells kids have very mature taste. While appearing on an episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the Good Place actress, 43, chatted with host Kelly Clarkson, 41, about letting her two daughters ? Delta, 8, and Lincoln, 9 ? drink non-alcoholic beers.

Although she admitted that it sounds insane, Bell said that context is important, since her 48-year-old husband Dax Shepard is a recovering addict.

Hes a recovering addict, Bell said of Shepard, but he likes non-alcoholic beer, so hed pop one open, hed have [our oldest daughter] on his chest, and wed walk and look at the sunset, she told Clarkson. As a baby, she was pawing at it, and sometimes shed suck the rim of it. So I think it feels to her like something special, something daddy, something family.

Bell went on to say that the drinks contain zero percent alcohol and that since establishing this routine, her kids have asked for non-alcoholic beer at restaurants.

Weve been at restaurants where shes said, Do you have any non-alcoholic beer? And Im like, maybe we just keep that for home time, said the actress.

But then Im sort of like, you can judge me if you want, Im not doing anything wrong, added Bell. Thats your problem.

[From People]

Kids that age just want to feel like grownups and they copy their parents? behavior too. I loved ordering Shirley Temples when I was a kid because it felt like I was ordering a cocktail, like I was a grownup. I?ve seen teenagers order virgin pina coladas too, because it feels like a thrill, like they?re doing something naughty. Technically, Kristen is right it?s not like she?s doing anything wrong. I mean, except for telling her daughters? business to everyone. She and Dax should introduce their kids to Shirley Temples.
