Rocker Joel Madden would rather go into hiding than inject his face with Botox.

The Good Charlotte star, who is married to fashionista Nicole Richie, turns 40 next year (11Mar19), and as the age milestone looms, concerns about fading looks are beginning to flood his mind.

However, Joel has pretty much shut down prospects of cosmetically enhancing his features, swearing off wrinkle-blasting injections like facial paralysis drug Botox.

“I have trouble trusting the idea of that stuff. It scares me,” Madden revealed on the High Heels and Hangovers podcast earlier this week (ends10Aug18). “If it’s (ageing) that crazy that I feel like I need to change my look just because people are scrutinising it, I don’t know. I’d rather just move away and live in privacy.”

“I’d rather go and just move to a farm somewhere and live out my days,” he added.

The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous hitmaker, who has another fashion forward star Cameron Diaz as a sister-in-law, admits he is slowly coming to terms with getting older and he is leaning towards not caring whatsoever about his physical looks as he climbs towards his Golden Years.

“I’m going to be 40 in March and I look like c**p right now. I’m jet lagged and I was up late last night, but, I mean for me, ageing is whatever. Why fight it?” he mused. “I’m not trying to fight it. I mean, what am I going to do? I’m married with two kids. I’m not trying to be anything but what I am.”

Gwyneth Paltrow has co-designed a five-piece collection with Lilly Pulitzer for Goop.

Goop, Gwyneth’s lifestyle company, is no stranger to teaming up with big-name brands, working with Christian Louboutin, Stella McCartney and Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 in the past.

Now, American brand Lilly Pulitzer is getting the Goop treatment.

“I felt so inspired looking through Slim Aarons’ photos of these glamorous, elegant women dressed in Lilly Pulitzer. The opportunity to reinvent the aesthetic has been a lot of fun,” Gwyneth said in a statement, referencing photographer Slim’s images of Rockefeller and Vanderbilt women wearing Lilly Pulitzer.

Working with Mira Fain, Lilly Pulitzer’s executive vice president of product design and development, Gwyneth came up with the Kiss Kiss print, a swirly pink and white design, which features across all five pieces, including the Paltrow Blouse, Gwyneth Stretch Shift Dress, Lilly Maxi Skirt, Palm Beach Silk Maxi Dress and the Palm Beach Tote.

“This was an exciting and fun creative collaboration. We were delighted to work with Gwyneth Paltrow and the talented Goop team and bring to life a capsule collection that highlights the best of both brands” Mira said. “While designing the collection, we were thrilled to hear Gwyneth share her memories of wearing Lilly Pulitzer during the summer visits to The Hamptons.”

Prices range from $398 (£303) for the silk maxi to $88 (£67) for the tote.

The Goop x Lilly Pulitzer collection is available online, at Goop’s Sag Harbor pop-up in The Hamptons, New York, and in Lilly Pulitzer stores across America.

Lilly Pulitzer, Inc. was founded by late socialite and designer Lillian Pulitzer Rousseau in 1959.

Why Nicole Richie took House of Harlow 1960 online

Nicole Richie teamed up with online retailer Revolve because the Internet is where her target audience prefers to shop.

Nicole launched House of Harlow 1960 a decade ago. The label started out as a jewellery brand but it has now evolved to include ready-to-wear, with the clothes sold exclusively in collaboration with Revolve.

Fans originally were able to snap up items in department stores, but Nicole, who has children Harlow and Sparrow with husband Joel Madden, decided to move everything online to fit in with her customers’ shopping habits.

“This business has changed. The world has changed over the past 10 years, which is how long I’ve been in this. For me, this was a pretty simple decision because that’s where my customer is,” she told Forbes. “You have to know where your customers are. And online is where they are.”

As well as focusing her attention on where House of Harlow shoppers like to browse and buy, the 36-year-old is also very aware of making sure her brand stays true to its roots.

Nicole explained to Forbes how important it is not to be influenced by other labels.

“In this industry, you constantly have to fight for your signature and your DNA in your brand. It is so easy to get lost in other people’s versions of what your brand should look like,” she shared. “It’s like constantly exercising and being almost aggressive in protecting your brand so that anyone can look at a piece that you have designed and say, ‘Okay, I know who created that.'”

Nicole Richie will never wear red lipstick on a talk show

Nicole Richie refuses to compromise her personal style when it comes to public appearances.

The socialite rose to fame after appearing on reality series The Simple Life alongside childhood best friend Paris Hilton from 2003 to 2007. The show’s success meant that plenty of top talk shows were keen to have Nicole as a guest who, back then, struggled with how to present herself.

“I remember when I did my first round of press for TV right after the first season of The Simple Life and… for whatever reason, I felt like I needed to present myself in a certain way,” she shared in an interview with Paper magazine. “I remember thinking, for example, When I go on a talk show, I have to wear a dress and heels – this is the talk show attire. And that was something I always struggled with because it wasn’t me.”

The 36-year-old crafted her own individual look as she got older, and finally insisted she would only wear outfits she felt totally comfortable in.

“It’s little things, like I don’t wear red lipstick when I’m going to do a talk show,” she explains. “If I have to speak, it’s just not who I am. I just can’t do it. Also – I’m cold all the time, so if there’s an opportunity for me to throw a turtleneck under something or wear something that’s beautiful and long-sleeved, I will absolutely do it.”

The Great News actress also refuses to “hide behind a lot of hair or a lot of make-up” and is a big fan of bright colours and bold prints.

“It gives my 5’1″ soul a little bit of height to wear something that’s going to elevate my mood,” she laughed.

Nicole is also founder of her own fashion label, House of Harlow 1960, which celebrates its 10th birthday this year.

Alberta Ferretti is gearing up to launch its first kidswear collection.

The Italian brand confirmed the news on Monday (16Apr18), and announced plans to release its first-ever junior line along with the rest of its spring/summer 2019 offerings.

Ferretti, founder of her eponymous label, believes that branching into clothing for children will greatly benefit her own creative vision.

“In this positive period of intense growth and new projects, the launch of a kidswear line is a new, exciting challenge that will further stimulate my creativity,” the 68-year-old designer said in a statement.

The company have held back much of the detail regarding its exciting new venture, however it announced that the upcoming line will be produced and distributed by Manifatture Daddato, a leader in luxury Italian childrenswear.

Ferretti also released two sketches teasing the overall look of the collection, which featured a junior version of the brand’s trademark ‘Days of the week’ jumper in pink, and a khaki, ruffled shirt and shorts combination.

The house is best known for designs featuring twisting, tucking, and draping techniques, and has attracted a legion of celebrity fans such as Nicole Richie, Solange Knowles and Selena Gomez. With each of her creations, Ferretti is keen to see her female clientele make them her own.

“It’s a personal attitude, I feel that a woman should make the dress her own, interpret it and show her character,” she previously told WWD. “I live the life of women, they are my muses. The same dress can be worn in different ways by different women, each with their own personality.

“My goal is to make women beautiful, but they must also look contemporary and move with ease.”

Jeremy Scott and Emily Ratajkowski among Daily Front Row award winners

Jeremy Scott was crowned Creative of the Year at the 2018 Daily Front Row awards on Sunday (08Apr18).

Known for his flair for colour and quirky use of cartoons at Moschino, the designer rocked a one-shoulder pinstripe suit, which left half his torso on display. He was joined on the red carpet at the publication’s fourth annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards by Paris Jackson and Frances Bean Cobain, the daughters of music legends Michael Jackson and Kurt Cobain.

“I’m always open to inspiration,” Jeremy told Daily Front Row ahead of the awards show. “If there is ever the time that something doesn’t come instantly, I move on to the next thing. There’s a lot of cross-pollinating when I’m doing one thing that inspires me about another thing. Keeping busy is helpful to keep the machine well-oiled. I don’t do anything in particular to replenish the well, but I try to keep myself a happy, whole person. I function best from a place of happiness. That’s why I live in Los Angeles.”

Emily Ratajkowski was also honoured at the awards bash, held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, taking home Model of the Year, while Stuart Vevers for Coach bagged Designer of the Year and Philipp Plein won the Fashion Rebel prize.

Stylist Jamie Mizrahi also took home a gong, winning Best Design Debut for her work at Juicy Couture.

Nicole Richie, one of Jamie’s clients, was there to cheer her on, and as well as offering Jamie her support, the 36-year-old caught up with her The Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton.

Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend, Kris Jenner and Normani Kordei were among the guests.
