Drew Barrymore and Christina Hendricks happily pose alongside Coco Rocha and designer Christian Siriano as they all celebrate the release of his book “Dresses To Dream About” at the Rizzoli Flagship Store on Wednesday (November 8) in New York City.

The ladies were joined at the event by Natasha Lyonne, Nia Vardalos, Cynthia Erivo, Leigh Lezark, Patricia Field, as well as Christina‘s husband Geoffrey Arend and Christian‘s husband Brad Walsh.

The book gives readers an intimate look into his design process — how he begins each dress with a simple sketch and transforms it into a beautiful “three-dimensional piece,” Christian told Yahoo Lifestyle. “I wanted people to see all the work that goes into a dress — it’s a lot.”

Nia Vardalos to Star in New Series Inspired by Chewbacca Mom

Nia Vardalos has a fun new project in the works – she is starring in a new series tentatively titled Suburbs Famous, which is inspired by Chewbacca Mom‘s rise to fame!

The My Big Fat Greek Wedding actress got the idea for the series after she appeared alongside the viral star on a morning talk show.

Suburbs Famous “explores what happens after a suburban housewife (Vardalos) accidentally becomes famous in a viral video. Thrust into the cutthroat world of celebrity chefs, the newly divorced mom must navigate between the intense public scrutiny which could destroy her and the investors who want to make her a star… all while realizing she suddenly has the one thing everyone wants: power,” according to Deadline.

“I wanted to explore the concept of sudden fame for someone who isn’t prepared and doesn’t want it, for someone who gets power and doesn’t know what to do with it, as well as what happens next,” Nia said a statement.

In addition to starring in the series, Nia is executive producing the project, which is heading to Bravo.

Kaitlin Doubleday Says Trai Byers Isn't Leaving 'Empire'

Kaitlin Doubleday shares a laugh with My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2‘s Nia Vardalos while appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (March 24) in New York City.

The 31-year-old Empire actress opened up about rumors that her on-screen husband Trai Byers wants to leave the show.

“No,” Kaitlin said when asked if the rumors are true. “I think, well, he is a trained actor and he does work really hard and he did go to Yale and he does compare the show to Shakespeare in a lot of ways but I don’t think that that means that he wants to get killed off and if you do, you better not say that because that means I’m leaving too. He’s going to stay and he doesn’t say that at all.”

Kaitlin also opened up about working with Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can. Watch that clip below!
