FASHION NEWS NOW - Happening Tonight

 Kate Hudson and fam pose for Ann Taylor!

Kate Hudson makes it a family affair in her latest spring 2014 campaign for Ann Taylor. The AD features the actress on a Hollywood set, in some behind-the-scenes shots capturing her and some help from her two sons, Ryder and Bingham.

This is no surprise considering Hudson, herself comes from Hollywood royalty. She is the daughter of Goldie Hawn, and step-daughter to Kurt Russell.

 Emma Watson works magic for Wonderland Mag!

This girl’s all grown up. Emma Watson is gracing not just one, but two covers for Wonderland Magazine's February and March Issues. Way to go, Emma. The powers that be are at work in your favor. The bewitching beauty shared a tweet with her followers, categorizing her recent editorial escapade,

"Wonderland. Out February 7th. Afro Prada Bruiser or Elf Alien Queen. Your Pick #NOAH @wonderlandmag" Emma also served as guest editor for the mag. -- Emma Watson via Twitter

 With a break from her stint as the "nice judge" on Fox's “American Idol”, Jennifer Lopez took some time out to pose for the cover of Glamour Uk's March issue, and the pop diva looks gorgeous.

The triple-threat/Puerto Rican bombshell set the lens ablaze in a skin-tight and fiery golden lace number from Dolce Gabbana. Inside the mag, Jen leaves a little less to the imagination, wearing nothing but lilac lace panties and a sheer top to match. Not sexy enough? Get a copy of the mag today, and see of your favorite AI judge let loose.
 Kate Moss for Alexander McQueen!

 Kate Moss turns 40 and Alexander McQueen turns to Kate Moss. The iconic femme fatale is the star of the high fashion brand's fall winter 2014 Advertising Campaign including print, TV spots, and a short film shot by photographer Steven Klein. Looks like 40 is treating Kate very well!

Jessica Simpson's Body is Back!
Looks like Jessica Simpson has got her body back. The curvaceous popstar is looking quite fit after giving birth to her second child, Ace, with fiancé, former NFL tight-end, Eric Johnson.

Simpson shows off the return of her hot bad in a series of sexy shots for the spring 2014 campaign for her fashion line Jessica Simpson, available at Macy's.

Let's Start Over.

First, I would like to wish you all an amazing New Year! We here at LPB have been on a hiatus of sorts because I lost a pivotal person in my life, my grandmother who for the past six years battled Parkinson's disease like a true warrior. Her death on October 24th left me at a lost of words and it was extremely hard for me and the rest of the LPB team to function so function we did not. The past few weeks since her burial it's been a learning lesson on inner strength, the meaning of love and the harsh truth on loyalty. It's only fitting that I get back to business as it is what we have worked hard on here at LPB and more importantly it is what my gramère would of wanted. With that being said we are officially back.
