Win an Autographed Copy of Mary-Kate and Ashley's Influence In their new book Influence, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen take us on a visual journey of people — photographers, designers, artists, writers, icons — who have influenced them. The book is fashion-heavy — and it's fabulous. We are giving away eight autographed, yes autographed, copies so you too can experience their influence.
Reese Witherspoon took the stage at the Beat the Odds Awards sponsored by The Children's Defense Fund, joined by a handful of other celebs in LA Thursday night. She's been busy promoting Four Christmases but it must have been nice to take a break and start getting into the spirit of giving back. Her romantic comedy has been a hit at the box office so far, proving that Reese deserves her spot as the third highest paid actress in Hollywood. She's down two slots from taking the title last year, thanks to Angelina at No. 1 and Julia Roberts at No. 2, but having a hit movie at the end of 2008 sounds like the perfect way to climb back to the top next year.
Found! Lauren Conrad's Tie-Dye Tee If there's one thing American Apparel is good for, it's cool cotton basics. Lauren Conrad knows this; that's why we constantly see her in their goods. Being the little jetsetter, she stepped up her hippie vibe in this Unisex One-of-a-Kind Tie Dye Poly-Cotton Short Sleeve Crew Neck ($27).
From music to TV to movies, hot guys are one of the many reasons we keep coming back to our guilty pleasures for more. As the Jonas Brothers continued to rise to stardom this year, the original boy band New Kids on the Block made their triumphant return. The Gossip boys and the cast of High School Musical stayed cute but had to make way for the guys of 90210 and Twilight. There were old favorites and newcomers, but tell us — who is the sexiest group of 2008?

Christian Bale and Aaron Eckhart grabbed dinner together at Il Cielo in LA earlier this week, joined by Christian's wife Sibi. The partial Dark Knight reunion is never really complete without Heath Ledger, though his memory will live on through Award Season and when the movie is rereleased in January. While Maggie Gyllenhaal may not be your favorite dramatic actress of 2008, Ledger's name should be on everyone's minds when the time comes and hopefully this is just a sign that Christian and Aaron are ready to hit the red carpets again, even without their friend.
