Jessica Simpson’s massive empire is getting bigger!  Besides shoes, clothes, perfumes, accessories and so much more, Jessica has expanded her brand once again.  And we love it!

The Jessica Simpson Home collection is now available at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  The home goods line includes comforters, pillows, and quilts, with a lot of paisley and a cool southern vibe.  The line will also be expanding this fall to include bath and kitchen.

The 33-year-old-mom of two told People Magazine: “We started working on designs after [2-year-old daughter] Maxwell was born and Eric and I were moving into our new house.  We have wanted to add [home] to the collection for a while.  I work alongside my mom on my collection and we both share a passion for home interiors, so branching out in this category has been really inspiring for us.”

Check out the Jessica Simpson collection here.

We here at TLR love the collection–the price isn’t too crazy and the paisley designs really brighten up a space.  A white room can always use an intricate pattern so make sure to grab some items from her collection while you can!

My favorite pieces! The comforter and pillows are gorgeous! ($99.99-179.99)

Alicia Keys Looks Gorgeous in New Givenchy Fragrance Ad Campaign

Alicia Keys is the new face of Givenchy’s latest fragrance, Dahlia Divin, and she is looking good!  alicia-keys-givenchy-dahlia-divin-tlrAlthough the scent, which combines notes of patchouli, sandalwood, mirabelle plum, vetiver, and jasmine, won’t be out until September, her ad campaign for the new fragrance has been released.  Singer Alicia is clad in a gold, shimmering Givenchy dress and golden makeup to match the design of the Givenchy fragrance.

The 33-year-old Grammy winner told WWD that the inspiration for the campaign came after Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisci worked with Alicia for a show she did celebrating the 10th anniversary for her debut album:

“We did four intimate shows with just me on the piano, and he designed the look for them.  It was very heavy metal–everything of his is just really heavy, but it was super cool.  As time passed, the campaign came to fruition.”

The infamous dress is also the same dress Victoria wore during a Spice Girls promotional photoshoot. The 40-year-old singer and designer tweeted a photo, with the caption: “Look what I found! The dress I wore on my first date with David!! X so cute!! X vb.”

The always stylish Victoria and her professional soccer player hubby have been married since 1999 and have four children.  I’d say that dress was a very wise choice!

Kendall Jenner Shows Off Pelvic Bone in MuchMusic Awards Dress

Jun

kendall-jenner-muchmusic-tlrThe Jenner girls–Kendall and Kylie–hit the red carpet for the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Canada.  The sister duo also served as hosts for the award show.  Kendall Jenner wore a long sleeve white embellished Fausto Puglisi dress that has high slits, showing off her pelvic bone.  The sexy dress, which showed off the 18-year-olds model physique, was paired with gold lace up heels and a gold clutch.

Kylie went with a long sleeve Nicholas Jebran mini dress, nude platform heels and showed off her newly dyed back to black hair.

I think the dress is unique and Kendall can definitely pull it off!  What do you think of the dress?  Too sexy or just right?
