As much as I love a good party, the stress of dealing with new clients, a small budget, and securing available celebs sent me to a near breakdown last week. I'm in need of some R&R and where better than Lake Tahoe? I can't believe I haven't been to our cabin in over 3 years (it's a hefty 9.5 hour drive from LA now that car bound with the dog - I am stopping for the night to see the parentals though) and can't wait to see the renovations (as well as my glamorous, untouched since 8th grade bedroom).
Finish summer with a bang and do something that's been lingering on your summer to do dream list this weekend! This is mine and I want to hear what you tackle!
Inner Tube Floats and Beer Me's,
Gimme More! DON's Deal

Anne Hathaway looks elegant in McQueen at the London premiere of One Day. Kristin Cavallari looks casual cool at another lunch in Los Angeles. I wonder if the girl ever cooks?
Nicole Richie cause quite a scene on Sunset as she left Il Sole with clip in bangs perfectly in place. Rose Byrne is so stunning, I'm absolutely in love with this Dolce and Gabbana dress.
British beauties on the go. Pippa Middleton grabs coffee before work while Rosie grabs lunch at Joan's on Third.
A bit about the party after the jump.

Let's start with something pretty shall we? I've been waiting for the flawless Zoe Saldana to kick off her promotional tour for the fiercely hot Columbiana and she did it with a bang in Miami. Wearing a plunging, heavy metal Balmain dress, she looks every inch the leading lady.
Hilary Duff grabs lunch in Los Angeles while Ashley Olsen heads to a meeting with Toms in New York. Normal ensemble, color me shocked and thrilled!
Emma Roberts and boyfriend Chord Overstreet grab lunch at Joan's On Third. Think about this for a second. Her aunt Julia has about the biggest smile in Hollywood...Chord has about the second biggest mouth ever. They would have some bass babies! Kristin Cavallari heads to lunch at Spanish Kitchen. She's reportedly very close to signing her DWTS contract.
Eva Longoria and bf Eduardo joined Khloe and Lamar for a date night at Madeo in Beverly Hills. They must have bonded at Kim's wedding.
Hugh Dancy, yummy. Olivia Palermo attended the NY screening of Our Idiot Brother because she never misses a screnning. Her Tibi blouse pant combo is kind of a lot for me to take in. But if somebody, it ought to be her.
Aw, reunited with Alicia Silverstone.
Every time I pass this fountain in Beverly Hills, I do the "I love Josh. I'm majorly, totally, butt-crazy in love with Josh!" I almost never have on a cropped sweater vest over a sheer ruffled blouse when I do this.
Let's end this with a round of cray cray. Vanessa Hudgens, what is happening here? You need some Zac to come back and pretty you up. He'll give you excellent tips on curling your eyelashes and side swept bangs.

It has been bizarre not traveling for the past two months for work. I'm actually looking forward to the chaos of fall when I'll be living out of a suitcase and seeing so many of my long distance friends (plus Mexico with my sis). I recently picked up the best soft white wearable wrap, which is more like a cape/blanket/poncho, at H&M and it will be my favorite travel companion. Still need some new black boots for NY!
Here are some celebs who hit the airport recently, including Kim and her husband (weird!!!) who took off for France. Subtle ring, no? Will be very practical when she has babies.
More airport pics after the jump.
Some random celeb shots for your afternoon. Jennifer Garner (who I still think is in a family way) and ScarJo (who is looking mighty thin) attended a Disney fan event in bright pops of color.
Mom to be Hillary Duff spent the weekend in San Francisco with her mom and sister Haylie. She's back at the grind in LA, heading to Pilates class this morning. Katie Holmes does a coffee run to Urth in Beverly Hills. Doesn't her new movie look mad creepy?!
Jessica Chastain, the breakout star of The Help (other than Octavia Spencer) does some promotional work in New York. Wasn't she just fabulous? I can't wait to see more work from her. Also, between Bryce, Emma, and Jessica, there were a boat load of redheads in the cast, huh? Pippa Middleton shops around London. Did you see her special All About Pippa? What an incredible waste of my life. Interviews with the most random people interspersed with a handful of over-published photos of her. Snore! I'm waiting for her to do Vogue or Vanity Fair as her first big press piece in the US.
I hope you all had fun weekend. I celebrated a friend's engagement, went ombre with the hair, and did some dog obedience training in the Valley. I'm still trying to get used to the hair and determining if I want to go back to blonder or take it dark next time. My colorist has been so sweet, texting me and asking me to take polls on the new look since she knew I didn't love it. It's pretty similar to Lauren Conrad's hair here (see the back...I was not making pretty faces from the front) I think it looks way more blonde than it is because it was so bright in the salon. Trust me, it's brown at the top.
Demi Lovato celebrated her 19th birthday in Hollywood before heading up to Kim Kardashian's wedding (unlikely friendship much?). I'm not posting pics from Kim's wedding because the cease and desist would hit me before you could say "nice headpiece". But feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, I've been loving the tweets you've been sending me about it.
Miley Cyrus did some shopping with her boyfriend Liam in Los Angeles while Nicole Richie hit Tracy Anderson's studio for a workout.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Vanessa Hudgens headed to lunch dates.
Whitney Port and KCav did the same. Kristin is reportedly a contestant on the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Whitney Port is in fact wearing bike shorts.
I just love Alessandra Ambrosio's easy girly style. She is the ultimate non-native California girl. Paris Hilton leaves a facial at Kate Somerville with a bag full of goodies.
Halle Berry grocery shops in Beverly Hills following her 45th birthday celebration.
Soon-to-be first time mom January Jones picked up some Taco Bell after a doctor appointment in Beverly Hills.
Gimme More! Alessandra Ambrosio
