Happy Presidents' Day! We still have a ways until our current presidential dad, Barack Obama, walks each of his daughters down the aisle, but past commanders in chief have played the role of father of the bride. In 2008, then first twin Jenna Bush, who is expecting a baby this Spring with her husband, married Henry Hager at the Bush ranch in Crawford, TX. Unlike Lyndon Johnson's daughters or Tricia Nixon, Jenna decided against a White House wedding. Later in 2010, America was buzzing over Chelsea Clinton's marriage to Marc Mezvinsky, offering the most recent example of first-daughter wedding mania. After all, these events are the closest thing we have to royal weddings.
Diane Kruger wore Prabal Gurung for a special gala honoring Quentin Tarantino in NYC last night. Diane and stars, including Katie Holmes, assembled at the Museum of Modern Art for the "Tribute to Quentin Tarantino" event, which comes ahead of the release of the director's next film, Django Unchained, on Christmas Day. Quentin's the fifth-ever director to receive a retrospective honor from MoMA, following in the footsteps of Tim Burton and more.
Diane and Quentin have worked together previously, as she starred in his 2009 film, Inglourious Basterds. Diane made a speech about Quentin before a small film about him was screened for an audience of his frequent collaborators, including Reservoir Dogs actors Steve Buscemi and Harvey Keitel. Quentin's frequent producer Harvey Weinstein made the rounds with his pregnant wife, Georgina Chapman, as did Chelsea Clinton with her husband, Marc Mezvinsky. Django's Jamie Foxx also showed up to lend his support to Quentin.
Sarah Jessica Parker mingled at Carnegie Hall in NYC last night for their 2012-2013 Season Opening Night Gala. She was out for the reception along with other notable New Yorkers, including Mayor Bloomberg, Barbara Walters, and Chelsea Clinton, who brought along husband Marc Mezvinsky. SJP had the evening out on the town after a morning spent with her kids, James Wilkie, Tabitha, and Loretta Broderick. She's been mixing up a.m. school runs with glamorous p.m. endeavors, like the opening of the NYC Ballet and Fashion's Night Out.
SJP also found a few free hours to pose for Elle's Women in Hollywood issue, in which she discussed taking on roles unlike what she's done before. Referring to her iconic role of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, SJP said, "I don't love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don't want to do the poor man's version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it's more reason to look in the other direction."
Gwyneth Paltrow flashed a smile and waved to photographers as she arrived at a charity dinner for the Clinton Foundation's Millennium Network held at Old Vic Tunnels in London tonight. Other attendees included former president Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend Dave Clark, and Will.i.am. Gwyneth dressed in all white for her latest night on the town, which was in stark contrast to the all-black ensemble she wore for Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne afterparty on Sunday night. Gwyneth's sense of style seems to be rubbing off on her daughter, Apple, who debuted pink hair over the weekend. In addition to looking good, Gwyneth can also count on smelling good since she was recently named the new face of Hugo Boss's latest fragrance, Boss Nuit Pour Femme.
Chelsea Clinton sat down with Brian Williams on his nightly Rock Center show to explain why she's leaving behind her "deliberately private life" for a journalism career. But before she got personal last night, Chelsea reported on former-educator Annette Dove, who has committed her life to helping impoverished children in Pine Bluff, Arkansas with hot food, tutoring, and someone to talk to.
After her inaugural "Making a Difference" report, Chelsea went on to discuss why she's putting herself out there for the first time. She said, "For most of my life, I did deliberately lead a private life and inadvertently led a public life." But after her grandmother, Dorothy Rodham, passed away in early November, she decided to change course. Chelsea explained that her grandmother had a core adage in life: that life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you. Chelsea said her grandmother had recently been "challenging me to do more with my life, to lead more of a purposefully public life. That being Chelsea Clinton had happened to me and that I had a responsibility to do something with that asset and opportunity."
Chelsea Clinton grew up under the media spotlight, considering her dad became president when she was just 12 years old. Since then, her parents and Chelsea herself have been fierce guardians of her privacy. But now almost 20 years after Bill Clinton became commander in chief, Chelsea is taking more steps into the public eye. Her latest move? A gig as a special correspondent for NBC News.
Maria Shriver, daughter of JFK's sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver and former ambassador and vice presidential nominee Sargent Shriver, may have blazed the path for political offspring on national news. Maria worked for NBC News for more than a decade. She's been followed by bubbly former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager, who has been a correspondent for Today since 2009, reporting on topics like non-profits for children who lost a parent on 9/11. Megan McCain also just started a job for MSBC, and as an already outspoken and opinionated young Republican she seems more willing to take on political issues.
For her part, Chelsea will likely participate in NBC's "Making a Difference" series, which focuses on volunteers improving their communities. Of the political daughters on TV now, who would you rather watch?
After a story ran today suggesting Chelsea Clinton will soon run for Congress in New York, a Clinton spokesperson said it was 100 percent false that the former first daughter will seek office this election season. But as Chelsea works on her PhD in public policy, she might also be working toward a political future.
A typically private Chelsea Clinton, 31, dipped her toes in the political waters during her mother's presidential campaign. And as Politico reports, Chelsea enjoyed it. She's recently found opportunities to be in the spotlight again, interviewing her mother at the Clinton Global Initiative event, starting a Facebook page, and authoring a piece about her father's legacy. Chelsea's also beefing up her own political credentials, working on a PhD in public policy for NYU. Apparently she is taking an interest in policy close to her mother's heart too, including healthcare and women's issues.
Of course, Chelsea could always use her training to further causes outside of public office. And it remains to be seen if the public would welcome a Clinton political dynasty that extends to the former president's kid as they did with George W. Bush. They could also reject it, as the people of New York did with Caroline Kennedy's failed Senate bid in 2009. Would you like to see Chelsea in politics?
Hillary Clinton dreamed about winning the title of madame president, but she'd more eagerly welcome another one: grandma. According to Bill, at least. When asked what he'd like to accomplish in the next decade, the former president had this to say:
“I would like to have a happy wife. And she won’t be unless she’s a grandmother. It's something she wants more than she wanted to be president."
Talk about pressure for Chelsea, who just got married last year! It's a bit off-putting to picture a power woman like Hillary as the grandchild-pressuring mom. Still, I find it sweet that she values her family so much. What do you make of Bill's comments?
There was lots of love in 2010, with plenty of celebrities tying the knot in front of family and friends. Some chose lavish affairs and overseas "I Dos" while others kept their weddings sweet and simple. Either way, they were affairs to remember as some of Hollywood's hottest couples walked down the aisle and made their relationships official. Weigh in on your favorite newlyweds and take a look at all of 2010's celebrity weddings!
