Another season brings another lovely collection from Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s! The Paper Crown designer’s latest looks boast a ton of Conrad signatures: pinks and floral prints on skinny jeans and sundresses. Plus, she added a few new things, like polka-dot chambray and a few items in mint, the color of the season. “When designing, I like to imagine where the clothes will be worn,” Conrad has told InStyle.com. Click through to see all the pieces from her spring LC Lauren Conrad collection, and shop it in Kohl’s stores and on kohls.com later this month.
Marc Jacobs has another leadership role on his plate—or, actually, in his glass! Diet Coke just named the Louis Vuitton designer as its creative director for 2013, its 30th anniversary year. Following in the bubbly footsteps of previous fashion-focused DC creative directors Jean-Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld, Jacobs will create a line of limited-edition bottles and cans, as well as take charge of the Sparkling Together for 30 Years campaign. “Diet Coke is an icon… and I love an icon,” Jacobs said in a statement. To launch his partnership, he stars in a film for Diet Coke, appearing shirtless as an homage to the brand’s iconic Diet Coke Hunk ads from the 1990s. Watch the clip here!

Some big changes are in store on tonight’s all-new episode of Nashville. First, Deacon packs up his guitar and joins Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) on tour, stunning Rayna (Connie Britton) and prompting everyone to do some major soul searching. While Deacon may need time to adjust to the “Vegas production” that is the Juliette Barnes show, we can’t get enough of the added dance numbers (think smoke, sequins, fringe, and leather shorts!). Back in Nashville, Scarlett (Claire Bowen) and Gunnar struggle to make rent with tips from low-rate gigs, while Avery walks the line between his past and his present. Plus, Teddy and Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) reunite and it’s oh-so-good. Tune in tonight at 10 p.m. EST on ABC, and brace yourself for the jaw-dropping ending!
Plus, see Connie Britton’s transformation.

When it comes to Natalie Portman’s new Dior campaign, the eyes have it! For the label’s brand new Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara, Portman bats her lengthy lashes to the tune of Desire’s “Under Your Spell.” (Fun fact: the song was also featured in Dior’s spring 2012 Haute Couture show, as well as the Ryan Gosling movie Drive.) The product is a follow-up to the iconic Diorshow mascara, but boasts a new curved brush to help maximize curl, and includes plant nectar and abyssinv oil in the formula to strengthen lashes. Pick up the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara for $29 at sephora.com.

The Los Angeles premiere of Safe Haven was full of lovebirds! While Julianne Hough (in Alberta Ferretti) and Josh Duhamel (in Ralph Lauren) play modern-day star-crossed lovers in the latest Nicholas Sparks book-to-film project, the duo brought their real-life main squeezes as their plus-ones for the premiere event. Duhamel cozied up to wife and pop diva Fergie (in Gucci), while Hough snuggled up to boyfriend Ryan Seacrest. The film opens nationwide on Valentine’s Day.

Celebrity stylist Eric Archibald had an important goal in mind when he prepped Jennifer Hudson for her big pre-game performance of “America the Beautiful” with the Sandy Hook Elementary School survivors. “Jennifer wanted simple and classic,” Eric said in a statement. “She herself has overcome great tragedy and it was all about paying respect to the moment.” Archibald used the simple black-and-white Monika Chiang, L’Wren Scott, and Saint Laurent outfit to “highlight the emotional tones” of the performance, with one exception: the bright green ribbon Hudson wore to commemorate the December school shooting that claimed 26 young lives. “Little children being survivors like that…that’s the part that took me back in,” Hudson said. “They are conquerors, they are survivors. And they’re babies.”
