Though his father and mother and his wife, Christine Taylor were nearby, The Heartbreak Kid star Ben Stiller spent some time in the arms of co-stars Malin Akerman and Michelle Monaghan (in Yves Saint Laurent) at the premiere their new comedy at Mann's Village Theater in Hollywood. "It was a whirlwind experience and I loved every moment of it. It was awesome!" gushed a perfectly positive Ackerman (in Dolce & Gabbana) of her role in the laugher.
Toasting Ralph Lauren's new book at Bergdorf Goodman
Friday, October 19, 2007
(NEW YORK) True to its content, Ralph Lauren's eponymous book launch at Bergdorf Goodman last night was a family affair. While the legendary designer signed hundreds of copies and alligator pressed-calfskin deluxe editions of the work, daughter Dylan cheered him on, son David diligently handled the organization of the event, and wife Ricky even helped package the books at one point. "Well, I'm a muse!" smiled Mrs. Lauren. "This year has been incredible. It's truly been about love, about thrills--and something like this amazing book really tops it off. I'm touched by this work, because it really pays tribute to our family."
Actress Michelle Monaghan arrived to the event with good friend Mary Alice Stephenson, and was inspired both by her Ralph Lauren dress and the beautiful tome. "I just want to shimmy my hips in this feathery number!" she beamed. "Mr. Lauren is very impressive, but if I had a book to pay tribute to my family, there would be a lot of pictures of camping, barbecuing, and lots of cards. My family loves the outdoors!"

Beautiful Michelle Monaghan might look stunning in this Ralph Lauren dress, but her early days were far more humble. “My first job was detasseling corn,” she told Chic Report yesterday. “I come from a farming community in Iowa, so I’ve done a lot of hard labor for about $5 an hour.”
