Lea Michele doesn’t have much time to go shopping in between Glee takes, which is why she likes to plan ahead with stylist Estee Stanley. “This is our busy time of year with all the awards show and then the start of the season, so we have to stockpile dresses,” the actress told InStyle.com at the Valspar Hands for Habitat launch a few weeks ago, where she wore electric blue Oscar de la Renta (center left). “It’s so fun!” So, which dresses make it onto the red carpet? The confidence-builders. “My belief—and this is something that Estee and I agree with—you never have a dress wear you,” she said. “Don’t try and fit your body into a dress. The dress has to fit you and then you have to feel comfortable in it, and if you feel your best in it then the dress is great, and you feel and look great.” And she follows her own advice: “I’m feeling pretty good these days. And it shows.” For proof, click through the gallery to see some of her most memorable looks of the year.
Justin Timberlake’s foray into home goods is now here! HomeMint, a new wallet-friendly collection of home goods he created in collaboration with interior decorator and celebrity stylist Estee Stanley just launched this week. “For me, designing a house is just like a bigger canvas than styling, and it actually lasts longer,” Stanley said of her approach to the line, which includes dinnerware, rugs, pillows, and more. The two have a long relationship together: Not only did the pair become fast friends after Stanley decorated Timberlake’s homes, she also styles his fiancé, Jessica Biel. “For this, it was a no-brainer that I wanted to do it with him,” she said. “Men think so differently from women and I wanted to have that in the whole collaboration.” Timberlake agrees: “Each thing that we have has a masculine-feminine quality to it.” For the line, the pair work as curators rather than designers, collaborating with designers to produce unique items (like Matteo for bedding and towels and Medina for baskets). There is, however, one item straight from the creativity well of JT himself—two photographs of New York’s skylines. “I have a lot of photos that I’ve taken that I put in my house,” he explained. “This just seemed like a cool thing to do. Honestly these photos are old, it just felt like they were two that I didn’t feel incredibly insecure about.” See some of our favorite items in the gallery, and sign up to shop the goods—restocked monthly—at homemint.com.
