Isla at the BookExpo ‘Do I Amuse You?’ panel

Isla has started promotion for her children’s book Marge In Charge in the US, attending BookExpo in New York. On Thursday she attended the ‘Do I Amuse You?’ panel and spoke about what motivates her humour, alongside Denis Leary and John Hodgman. Isla looked summery in a little blue floral dress by Kate Spade – find HQ photos in our Gallery, and watch the video of the panel below. There are lots of fan photos on Twitter – I’ve added them to a ‘Moment’ on our Twitter, and you can also find them further down this post…

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. During this stage talk, they’ll explore the quirks, the ups, and even the downs of their lives that fuel their laughter and led them to write such a diverse array of books. James West, Senior Digital Editor of Mother Jones, will moderate (BookExpoAmerica.com)

Theory x La Ligne Cocktails & Panel x2



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.

Isla Fisher Announces Her New Children’s Book Series: Reading Is an ‘Integral Part of Childhood’

Marge In Charge will be released in the US at the end of 2017:

Isla Fisher Announces Her New Children’s Book Series: Reading Is an ‘Integral Part of Childhood’

Actress Isla Fisher charmed audiences in Wedding Crashers, and now, she’s channeled her quirky humor into children’s books.

PEOPLE has the exclusive cover reveal for her book Marge In Charge, which is the first of a three-installment series and will be published in the U.S. this fall.

” ‘Don’t worry about being perfect or you’ll miss out on the fun!’ That’s the message in the Marge books,” Fisher tells PEOPLE when describing the middle-school book series, which follows the adventures of two siblings and their unorthodox babysitter Marge.

“Jemima, who is the narrator and the eldest child, feels she has to be a ‘good girl,’ so thanks to Marge she learns to let her ‘freak flag’ fly and enjoy being a kid,” continues Fisher, 41, a mother of three.

In conjunction with the U.S. book deal, Fisher will be the final speaker at the BookExpo’s Children’s Book & Author Breakfast on June 2 (which will also feature authors Jason Reynolds, Marieke Nijkamp and Jennifer Weiner). There, she’ll discuss her upcoming book, as well as personal stories tied to her love for literacy.

“It saddens me when I think about how much vocabularies are shrinking — I know mine is, and there’s only so much I can blame on lactation,” writes Fisher about what inspired her to create the series.

“Nocturnal Animals” HD Film Screencaptures

Isla’s recent drama/thriller movie Nocturnal Animals was released on DVD/Blu-ray last month, and we now have HD screencaptures from the film in our Gallery for you. The film was very slick and chic, however, overall I felt it was cold and underwhelming. Isla had a tiny part with very little to do – although it was great seeing her work alongside such an impressive cast! Make sure you see the movie if you can, and check out our screencaptures in the Gallery – although do be warned that they obviously contain major spoilers as well as some images that may not be suitable for younger viewers…

“Keeping Up With The Joneses” HD Film Screencaptures

Keeping Up With The Joneses is now available on DVD/Blu-ray/digital release in the US now, and we have HD screencaptures from the film in our Gallery for you. Isla plays Karen Gaffney, a suburban wife who – along with her husband Jeff (Zack Galifianakis) – gets caught up in an international spy plot involving their new neighbours (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot). It was fun to see Isla in a comedy again, but I felt that overall this was a lacklustre movie; any attempts to be funny fell flat, and the characters were too stereotypical. Any Isla film is worth a watch though 😉 Enjoy the HD screencaptures in our Gallery:
