Tom Ford‘s friends are cooler than yours!
On Monday night the designer celebrated his 51st birthday at the Sunset Tower Hotel‘s Tower Bar with only some of the BIGGEST names in Hollywood.
Amongst the A-list crowd partaking in the festivities were Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson as well as newly engaged Jennifer Aniston, her fiance Justin Theroux and BFF IRL Courteney Cox.
We can only imagine the
materialistic conversations going on around that table.

Joy Williams gave birth during a scorching heat wave in Nashville, but says her delivery was a breeze.
“I did it all naturally and really loved the experience. My husband [Nate Yetton] and I had just gone to the Belcourt to see the new Wes Anderson movie, and the air conditioning was out in the theater,” the female half of The Civil Wars tells PEOPLE. “I was so hot! I started feeling tiny pressure waves during the film, but they abated over time.”
Fast forward hours later and she was almost ready to deliver.
“The [contractions] woke me up at about 1:30 in the morning. And then those really gradual pressure waves grew to ‘Okay, I think it’s time to call the doula!’ It happened pretty quickly and it went really well,” Williams, 29, says. “I had a midwife and a doula. Nate was a champion of champions and so supportive and present.”
Open to several options, Williams says the birthing process proved to be a natural progression.
“I didn’t really feel the need for [an epidural]. It was pretty quick labor, so I didn’t have to endure days in and days out and that never-ending sense of, ‘When am I having this child?’” she explains. “Regardless of how you end up delivering — medication or not — the experience is beautiful and visceral and challenging, but ultimately really empowering.”
Despite the blissful birth, the first-time mama was more than ready to head home from the hospital with the couple’s newest addition.
“Some people told us that that drive home can feel really overwhelming and daunting, [but] I was ready to take him home to our safe environment and hibernate together,” Williams says. “When we walked in the door, it was like, ‘Okay, we’re here … and here’s your nursery and here’s the kitchen and here’s the living room — a getting-to-know-you session.”
After a “drama-free” pregnancy and delivery, Williams quickly settled into motherhood and has already introduced 9-week-old Miles Alexander to the family.
“His first time flying went really well! We’re in Northern California [right now] and the grandparents are meeting the little one,” she shares. “There’s nothing sweeter than being able to introduce him to them.”
And the name Miles suits the burgeoning jet-setter.
“I believe Miles means merciful in German and soldier in Latin, but the actual practical and literal meaning of miles leapt out to us as well,” the two-time Grammy winner explains. “The fact that we will be traveling around the world and he’ll see 10 different countries before he’s even six months old made that name even more special to us.”
As for her favorite way to spend time with her “really smiley” baby boy?
“I love walking to coffee shops. There are lots of great parks in Nashville. There’s a farmer’s market,” she says. “He’s so brand-new! There’s a lot more I want to do and show him around town.”
For now, the new mom is catching up on some shuteye — and feeling inspired by the late-night feedings. “I’m starting to write my own songs for him. Something to do in the middle of the night,” jokes Williams.

According to recent celebrity news, KRIS HUMPHRIES has just been sued by a woman who claims that he gave her herpes.
While Kim Kardashian is happily enjoying her new relationship with Kanye West, her estranged husband Kris Humphries is having all kinds of bad luck with women.
And now that that’s over, another legal problem has cropped up to slap Kim‘s husband in the face.
On top of his ongoing divorce battle, the NBA star now has to deal with a lawsuit from a woman whom he allegedly hooked up with two years ago, who is now claiming that Kris infected her with herpes.
And no, he didn’t get it (if he really does have it) from Kim.
“Kayla Goldberg claims she met Kris in August, 2010… long before Kris met Kim Kardashian. The two flirted, exchanged numbers, and Kayla claims that night they met up at Trousdale nightclub on the Sunset Strip… [then] he took her to his hotel and they had sex multiple times … including oral sex. The suit claims during a portion of the sexual encounter Kris did not wear a condom.”
The site continues:
“The lawsuit claims Kris did not inform Kayla he had herpes — and she claims in the suit that he did indeed have the disease… [she] says a week later she was diagnosed with herpes.”
Kayla, who says she suffered symptoms such as “sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, as well as extreme vaginal irritation and painful lesions on her genitalia” after her sexual encounter with Kris, is suing for sexual battery because according to her, the ex-Mr. Kim Kardashian knew that he had herpes but didn’t tell her, and had sex with her anyway.
So far, no word from Kris Humphries‘ camp regarding the lawsuit and Kayla Goldberg‘s allegations.
Do you think this is true, or is Kayla just another woman looking to get her 15 minutes of fame?

One year after the famous fairytale wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, Kris’s mother Debra has announced that she is filing for divorce from her husband and father of their three children, William. While it is unknown how long the couple has been married and what brought the sudden difficulties in their marriage, it sure lasted longer than Kim and Kris’s 72 days.
William Humphries is a former University of Minnesota football player who turned his athletic career into a successful business profession by owning several Five Guys Burgers and Fries throughout Minnesota. It’s believed that the divorce could get a little messy since no prenuptial agreement was signed while going into the marriage. At the time, William didn’t own any of the Five Guys Burgers and Fries franchises so Debra might be cashing in on some of the businesses as well once the divorce is finalized.
While Kris’s parents are going through their own drama, Kris has prolonged the divorce process between him and Kim because he believes their whole marriage was for publicity purposes. Even though Kim’s fairytale wedding had a hefty price tag, the family still brought in over $17 million for all the coverage of their extravagant ceremony. He believes all the drama while he was on the show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” was another way for her and the family to cash in especially since she called off their marriage in such a short period of time.
Her reasons being she wanted to focus on her career with her family and leaving them for Minnesota was never going to be an option for her. Even though the two signed a prenuptial agreement, he still has the ability to sue for being involved in a reality television show for reasons that he wasn’t aware of. Kris is hoping that he can set Kim straight with all of her publicity stunts but on top of it all, dealing with his parent’s own divorce is going to make everything a little bit more stressful and challenging.
Elizabeth Olsen is most definitely following in her famous sisters’ footsteps.
The youngest Olsen sister has proven she’s a talented young actress in Martha Marcy May Marlene….which is most likely why designer Erin Fetherston is seeking her out to star in her new fashion film, even though she’s denying such things.
This may seem like a job for her fashionista sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, who are successful designers themselves, but it looks like Elizabeth is the one to get all the glory here.
We’re excited to see the end result, that is if it happens.
