The Simple Life star is in the process of planning her wedding to Zylka, 32.

During the iHeartRadio Music Awards, she revealed to ET that the pair plan to tie the knot later this year, but noted that picking a date has proved difficult due to her large family.

‘First we have the engagement party, the bridal party, and then the wedding,’ she said. ‘We’re still picking a date that’s perfect for everyone in the family. My brother is getting married in June so we’re gonna separate a few more months after that.’

The Only 8 Pieces You Need This Season, According To R29 Editors

“This season, more than any other season, I channel my personal style through dresses — from feminine silhouettes with bold patterns to adorable denim frocks (like this Givenchy one) — that make me feel like I’m taken back to the summer of ’69.” —Alyssa Coscarelli, senior fashion market editor.

“My wardrobe tends to be black, black, black, but summer is the one time of year I allow myself to break out a tiny bit of color. This pink bag is the perfect way to welcome the season (and a little color).” —Rebecca Smith, managing editor

“Whether I’m snoozing on the beach or just being plain extra at bottomless brunch, you’ll never find me far from a floppy straw sun hat. Nothing reads OOO vibes more than this one — literally.” —Allie Briggs, fashion and beauty writer

“Somewhat unintentionally, it turns out all of the jeans and skirts I own are black. So really my only hope for bringing some seasonal vibes into my wardrobe is through a few bright-colored tops. Luckily, this sunny striped tee is perfect for doing just that.” —Ali Ives, fashion editor

“I love to slip into espadrille sandals. They’re that perfect mix of comfy and chic — and transition seamlessly from work to happy hour. If you don’t consider yourself a heels girl, this is the perfect closed-toe platform sandal to kick off the season in.” —Nana Agyemang, fashion and beauty content strategy editor

“Hoops are a pretty basic staple in my wardrobe. I find I reach for my thicker, bolder ones a lot in summer when temperatures dictate wearing anything that won’t stick to me. Big gold hoops are the perfect way to make a lazy outfit look intentional.” —Channing Hargrove, fashion news writer

 

“Phasing out my go-to leather shoulder bag for a straw bag is one of the most exciting parts of this season for me. It’s just the right amount of unfussy (while still feeling like I care about what I’m wearing) and works equally well at the beach and brunch. —Lucy Meilus, senior lifestyle and entertainment editor.

“I’ve always been a fan of casual, cutesy summer jumpsuits. They’re beyond easy to pull off and are the ultimate one-and-done for when you’re in a rush to get ready. Plus, who doesn’t love a little ruffle?” —Claire Fontanetta, senior beauty editor

Princess Diana’s Cannes Dress Was Bluer Than the Sky and as Whimsical as a Dream

Princess Diana Cannes Film Festival Dresses

The Cannes Film Festival has always been one of the most glamorous events of the year, attracting Hollywood stars, models, and royalty alike. But while stars consistently shine thanks to the most incredible gowns, no one has marked the red carpet quite like Princess Diana.

Back in 1987, when she was just 26 years old, the Princess of Wales stunned everyone when she stepped out on the Croisette, wearing what has since become one of her most iconic outfits. As we watch to see what everyone wears this time around, read on to see the two Catherine Walker ensembles that Diana wore over 20 years ago.

For her first appearance on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, Diana wore a puffy Catherine Walker dress with a double-breasted white blazer.

She accessorised her outfit with black-and-white pumps.

 

For her evening look, Princess Diana opted for an incredibly glamorous gown.

 

She accessorised it with a shawl and chandelier earrings.

We Hope Cindy Crawford Attends the Met Gala, Because Her Past Looks Were Unforgettable

Cindy Crawford Met Gala Dresses

 

Cindy Crawford is a red carpet fixture. Though she’s only publicly been photographed at the Met Gala twice, in 2016 and in 2009, we know she dominates every event she walks into. The supermodel has a legion of fans, so it’s no wonder everyone’s waiting to see what she’ll do or wear next (perhaps she’ll make another runway appearance?).

Now that Cindy’s passed the modeling torch off to her daughter, Kaia Gerber, we expect the duo to make more red carpet appearances together. While neither has posted about attending this year’s Met Gala, like some stars, we hope they come as a pair. Take a look at Cindy’s past outfits, then tune into the red carpet on Monday, May 7.

Finally, a Movie That Gets Prom Dresses Right

Like any person, I’m embarrassed by a lot of what I wore in high school. I look back in horror at the low-slung jeans and the layered tees. For what it’s worth, however, I got one thing right: My prom dress. I found it in a vintage store. It was a ’40s cut with a floral pattern on top and a floor-length, cream-colored skirt that hung straight. It was timeless and flattering and I probably should find a reason to re-wear it.

I flashed back to this outfit, and how proud I was of it, after seeing Kay Cannon’s Blockers. The comedy, about a group of parents trying to stop their daughters from losing their virginities on prom night, is hilarious, moving, and unusually smart about the various ways young women approach sex. It’s respectful of the three girls at its center, and that respect is evident in their prom ensembles. The outfits worn by Julie, Kayla, and Sam — played by Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlon — are distinctive and cute, reflecting their wearers’ burgeoning senses of style — just like mine, I’d say. In a movie full of butt-chugging and vomit gags, the fashion is taken refreshingly seriously.

With apologies to the costume designer of Pretty in Pink, the most famous movie prom dress is notable for being hideous. In 1986, Molly Ringwald’s Andie ruined a perfectly nice vintage dress with scissors, creating an ill-advised concoction of pink polka dots and inexplicably bare shoulders. Andie’s dress is unintentionally laughable, but other prom scenes aim for the ridiculous, like when Rose McGowan is outed as a murderer wearing an overwrought updo in Jawbreaker. Most school dance fashion on film, though, is disappointingly bland, filled with spaghetti straps and pastels. Carrie White’s slip dress is unimpressive before being covered with blood; Sandy Olsson’s hand jive attire is basic, white ’50s kitsch.

In Blockers the most traditional dress belongs to Julie, who, in many ways, has the most traditional story line. She’s the first to announce that she’s planning to have sex with her long term — for high school, anyway — boyfriend. She envisions rose petals on the bed and a very specific candle burning.

Costume designer Sarah Mae Burton says she assumed the character would consider her formalwear with the same amount of care. Burton — who was eager to do a prom movie — discovered in her research that today’s teens pour over Pinterest in planning their perfect evening. “I put together a mood board that wasn’t necessarily about the dresses in the images but the feeling they evoked and the sort of very romantic, glamorous evening that [Julie] would be preparing herself for,” she tells the Cut.

Julie’s the kind of girl with a Sixteen Candles poster on her wall. And, true to that ideal, her dress — a modification of a Nha Khanh design — has a full tulle skirt. But it’s also a bold red, almost a hint that unlike the heroine of that movie in pale pink, Julie isn’t going to wait around for a boy to whisk her away. She’s going to orchestrate her own destiny.

Kayla’s dress was chosen with that same sense of identity. Kayla’s life up until this moment has been defined by her athletic achievements. “I remember those girls from high school that you were like, Damn, I haven’t seen you wear anything but sweatshorts like ever,” Burton says. That’s Kayla, and her two-piece reflects that. She bares the most skin of any of her friends — to the dismay of her overprotective dad (John Cena) — but at the same time she’s showing off her physical accomplishments.

As Burton notes, the top has a sports bra feel. The material is sparkly and sturdy. It works in conjunction with Kayla’s chill but focused personality. She’s up for trying anything her druggie date has brought along, but she’s also totally in control. While she ultimately decides she’s not ready to have sex, she’s not going to completely deny her own pleasure. Instead, she suggests her dude go down on her. He does.

According to Burton, Sam was the hardest to dress. Of the trio, she has the most nuanced arc: She begins the film closeted, going along with her friends’ sex pact because she doesn’t want to be left out of their shared experience, but over the course of the night embraces her own desires. An early draft of the script noted that she had a crush on Tilda Swinton, so Burton first tried some asymmetrical, Swinton-esque gowns on her. But when Adlon tried on the Self Portrait gown she ended up wearing, her character came into focus. Its Wednesday Addams white collar and Edward Gorey color scheme nod to her interest in fantasy without being overt.

By contrast, Sam’s love interest Angelica (Ramona Young) fully embraces a Lord of the Rings aesthetic, wearing a cloak she designed for Galadriel cosplay. Initially, the script called for Angelica to wear a tuxedo, but Burton demurred: “The more we dug into it it was like, okay, why does the one [already out] gay female character have to be in men’s clothing? Why can’t she be in a beautiful dress?”

The realities of production required Burton to alter the off-the-rack items she found for Julie, Kayla, and Sam. All the skirts were cropped shorter since mobility is key in the hijink-heavy, sometimes messy plot. She also needed to wrestle up multiples, which sometimes meant frankensteining new dresses from pieces with similar fabric. Still, Burton wanted some element of verisimilitude. Kayla’s outfit came from Ellie Wilde, a prom line under bridal retailer Mon Cheri, and  extras wore gowns from brands like Sherri Hill and Rachel Allan. The dresses aren’t cheap exactly, but prom is a racket in the real world. (According to a Visa Inc. survey the average cost of prom was $919 in 2014.)  “We wanted to make sure that it was something that felt like they would actually have access to,” Burton says. “Perhaps they saved their allowance or their part time job money toward it.” The dresses don’t feel like they were plucked from the runway, but more crucially, they feel like looks the women wearing them would choose. Maybe in real life they wouldn’t fit quite so well, but I’m willing to accept a little movie magic.

Blockers works because it’s on the side of the high schoolers, and the parents are routinely called out for the insecurity that leads them on their mission. The movie never questions whether these girls are capable of making their own decisions about their bodies — when it comes to both sex and clothes.
