Do I amuse you? Isla Fisher (Marge in Charge – HarperCollins), John Hodgman (Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches – Viking), and Denis Leary (Why We Don’t Suck – Crown Archetype) represent a spectrum of comedians who excel on the big screen, the small screen, and on the page.

La Ligne in La-La Land: Sara and Erin Foster Host an Intimate Dinner in Hollywood

La Ligne is navigating the wardrobes of some of the most influential and powerful women of the world. With a series of shirts, sweaters, pajamas, and dresses in classic silhouettes that can easily fit into any wardrobe as a staple for any occasion, it’s no surprise that the Angeleno’s laid-back lifestyle would embrace the brand’s iconic stripes. Last night, a group of stripe-clad women gathered to toast La Ligne and its latest West Coast venture, a pop-up shop at Theory’s Melrose store. “We try to make it about celebrating women who we think are inspiring, fascinating, interesting, smart, and entrepreneurial,” toasted cofounder Molly Howard along with Meredith Melling, who acknowledged the room of friends including Courtney Cox, Nicole Richie, Jennifer Meyer, and Kris Jenner. Guests dined on perfectly prepared delicate plates of sushi, served omakase-style from Hollywood staple Sushi Park, where sisters and cohosts Erin and Sara Foster posed for selfies with friends Rachel Zoe and Kelly Sawyer. After the blue crab hand roll (the final course for any fete at Sushi Park), guests were treated to classic green tea, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream mochi, before taking their stripes to the streets to show La Ligne it belongs in the city of stars.

Netflix’s ‘Fauda’ Co-Creator, Star Teases Season 2: ‘It’s Going to Have a Lot of Action’

Isla Fisher, Ayelet Zurer (“Munich,” “Shtisel”) and Lior Raz, co-creator and star of Netflix breakout hit “Fauda,” were among those on hand Thursday night (May 18th) at a fundraising soiree held at a private residence in Los Angeles to benefit the Cord, an Israel-based organization founded in 1999 by Igal and Dana Goldstein that serves troubled and homeless youth. Guests, which also included Israeli actress Moran Atias (“24,” “Tyrant”) and Consul General of Israel in Los Angeles, Sam Grundwerg, partied to live music and dined on kosher Mediterranean cuisine.

“The work that the Cord does is so important not only because of the immediate help that it provides troubled youth, but because it also provides much needed life skills so that these kids can help themselves,” said Grundwerg. “The Cord provides hope.”

Thanks @islafisher for a great eve and for supporting this amazing organization! ? #thecord #hollywood #islafisher

Event host Raz, who based “Fauda” on his own his experiences as an undercover operative in the Israel Defense Forces, offered up a free plane ticket to Israel and a walk-on part in Season 2 of the series, which begins shooting next month. In exchange for a $5,000 donation to the org, an offer snapped up for an inflated $7,000 by one enthusiastic attendee.

Raz also opened up about the initial struggle to get “Fauda” sold, and his continued surprise at the series’ commercial and critical success.

Isla at the AACTA International Awards

January 8th 2017No CommentsGallery Updates, Personal, Public Events

Fresh from her recent Trailblazer honour at the AACTA Awards, Isla attended the AACTA International Awards in Los Angeles on Friday. This international version of the AACTAs is their opportunity to celebrate the best non-Australian films of the year. Isla attended with her husband, and presented the award for Best Actress to fellow red-head Emma Stone for La La Land. Emma snuck on behind Isla on stage to accept the award, and the two shouted ‘surprise’ at each other simultaneously; Isla said afterwards, “I was completed surprised, but why I said ‘surprise’ was because everyone was coming out of their seats from the audience, and Emma just came out from behind me … I really enjoyed it.” Isla was also snapped with her Aussie friend Nicole Kidman backstage. Isla looked gorgeous in a floor-length flowing yellow gown by Monique Lhuillier with jewellery by Tasaki – I love this look on her, she pulls it off perfectly! We have over 100 gorgeous HQ photos in our Gallery for you, and scroll on down this post for a couple of articles/interviews from the night…
