Dynamo designer/wellness advocate Norma Kamali is spearheading a movement to stop objectification—and has Kristen Wiig to thank for it. Following a long-term preoccupation with women’s self-esteem issues, Kamali “saw Bridesmaids and thought, this is the most brilliant movie and the most telling about the culture and what it is that I’m trying to connect to,” she told InStyle.com. “In the beginning when Jon Hamm’s character is objectifying this young woman, who wants to believe that by objectifying herself and mistaking that for love, she will get love from him in the end.” After swapping stories with the women around her about everything from cat calls to workplace sexual harassment, Kamali launched the Stop Objectification site, which gives women a place to submit their own experiences of being objectified. “Tell everybody to just dump those stories,” says the designer. “When you have a secret and you haven’t been doing anything about it, it’s therapeutic to put a picture up and a statement up about who you are—you’re taking a positive, empowered action. We are more than what we look like; we’re a composite of experiences.” Watch her provocative “Hey Baby” video above and get inspired to share.

Stylist Annabel Tollman, who has worked with Liv Tyler, Kristen Wiig, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, is the new spokeswoman for customized jewelry site Gemvara. For her gig, the stylist selected her own pieces (hint: she loves color!) and provides styling tips. ”It’s a very bespoke experience,” Tollman told us of the process, which allows customers to choose between 29 different gemstones and nine precious metals. Certainly she has plenty of ideas for wearing jewelry in new and fun ways. “The holidays are the perfect time to wear sparkle,” Tollman told InStyle.com. “I like to put something on a grosgrain ribbon as a belt. I also love jewelry in the hair, so I would get a little charm and put it on a barrette.” Shop Annabel’s picks, including the pieces shown here, at gemvara.com.

When it comes to the holidays, Peter Facinelli tends to mimic his gentle turn as Dr. Carlisle Cullen in The Twilight Saga. “I don’t really enjoy getting more stuff,” Facinelli told InStyle.com at the Ermenegildo Zegna Parfums Essenze fragrance launch in New York, where the menswear label debuted five new colognes. “I have enough stuff. It sounds corny, but being with the people I love is a really nice gift for me.” And this year, he’s gifting his wish present to himself: “I’m taking my mom, dad, sister, and her family to the Bahamas. My sister was like, ‘Thank you so much,’ and I was like, ‘No, it’s really a gift for me. Because I want to spend time with you.’” Aw! Can we come?

Despite her in-jest protests that she’s “too famous” to shop Black Friday, Kristin Chenoweth actually participated in this year’s record-setting post-Thanksgiving shopping day! “I was in Oklahoma, and I did go to Target with my cousins at midnight,” the Broadway belter (in a 3.1 Phillip Lim top) told InStyle.com at Tourneau’s Meet Under The Mistletoe celebration this week—which, by the way, featured the world’s largest ball of mistletoe, measuring six feet across (and an appearance by Santa Claus!). “And that was an experience I don’t really need to have again. I’ve done it and I’m done.” The pint-sized Chenoweth was a bit overwhelmed by the experience, it seems—“My head spins out of control!”—which is why she stayed clear of the registers in favor of watching over her cousins findings. “I was on patrol. There was a lady who tried to take something out of my cousin’s cart and I was like, ‘No, that’s ours!‘” she said. Instead, she’s waiting for some alone time to shop. “I’m kind of a loner, because I don’t want to have to answer to anybody,” she explained. “Otherwise I would feel stressed!” Sounds like the holidays to us!

Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s DesigNation lands in stores in a few weeks, and we can hardly wait! Neither can the Cuban-American designer’s loyal celebrity fans, including Julianna Margulies, Katie Holmes, and Emma Roberts, who all celebrated his new lineup in New York last night. “I love that he loves women,” Margulies told InStyle.com of why she’s a Narciso follower (he even made her wedding dress!), while wearing the $64 two-tone dress from the collection. “He respects us and he cuts dresses to looks best on a woman’s body. He loves a curve. And this dress? It’s just not going to go out of style.” Rodriguez is thrilled that his pals took to his creations, like Emma Roberts, who wore the collection’s $60 V-neck design. “When you see women who have such great style that look so beautiful, it makes me very proud,” he told us. “I approached designing this collection the same way I would approach my own collection. I love beautiful things, and there wasn’t any holding back on style or design. My objective was to create a beautiful collection.” Click through the gallery to preview the entire Narciso Rodriquez for Kohl’s DesigNation—which was inspired by his recent trip to Istanbul and is full of the clean lines and architectural inspirations he’s known for—and shop it when it lands in Kohl’s stores and kohls.com starting November 7th.
