The Fashion Week fun continues in NYC, with Sarah Jessica Parker heading out last night to take in the Halston show. It's her first presentation since being named Chief Creative Officer of the brand last month, and she had nothing but praise for their designer Marios Schwab. "We are really proud of him," she said. "It's not as if I had anything to do with it but I know that the birthing process is really hard." Marc Jacobs, meanwhile, put on a less star-studded than usual event, though his fiance Lorenzo Martone took a break from planning their wedding later this year to celebrate at the staff-only after-party with Rachel Zoe. It was a starlet convention at Jill Stuart, with Jessica Szohr, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Mena Suvari in the front row. AnnaLynne McCord made a cameo there, after she was mum about being in the same city as rumored boyfriend Kellan Lutz. Both Fab and Bella are in the Big Apple covering the scene, so stay tuned for updates on all the action!

I'm looking forward to fresh midseason options once TV returns from its hiatus, and the CW's Life Unexpected is at the top on my list. The network appears to have a lot of faith in the new series, handing it Gossip Girl's Monday 9 p.m. slot until that show returns. Life debuts on Jan 18, but let's take a peek at what we can expect.
What's it about? Lux, a 15-year old girl who's been passed around through the foster care system. As she approaches her sixteenth birthday, she decides to seek emancipation by tracking down her biological parents — Baze (a bar rat who has no clue that he's even a father) and Cate (a local radio DJ). Both thirty-somethings are having difficulty with the notion of growing up, but once the judge grants them temporary custody of Lux, they're forced to accept some very adult-like responsibility.
Who's in it? Shiri Appleby, Kerr Smith, Brittany Robertson, Kristoffer Polaha
The good: The promos are touting the show as Juno meets Gilmore Girls, and I'm crossing my fingers that it lives up. The witticism that's associated with both of those appears to be here in the pilot. Plus, I'm glad to see WB alums Kerr Smith (Dawson's Creek) and Shiri Appleby (Roswell) find a home again on their old parent network.
The bad: A big reason Gilmore Girls was such a success — other than the banter — was the relationship between Lorelei and Rory, and I'm just not feeling the same pull here with Lux and Cate. Also, it's more a warm-fuzzies kind of show which could be a challenge. Is the same audience that ogled over the Vanessa-Dan-Olivia threesome really going to be interested in a tame heartwarmer about an adopted teen?
Will I watch? Definitely — well, at least the first few episodes to give the show a fair shot. If it's anything like Gilmore Girls then I'll give it my allegiance. But if it loses steam a few weeks in, I may just tune out.

Zooey Deschanel glowed on the red carpet Wednesday night at the LA premiere of 500 Days of Summer. She shared her big night with costar Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and had plenty of support from her fiance Ben Gibbard and sister Emily. Zooey and Joseph seem like a very sweet pairing, and we're excited to check out the indie movie when it opens on July 17.
