Normally we think Hilary Duff looks very cute and all sorts of glow-glow, but the lime green Rachel Roy mini Duff wore to the launch of The Beauty Book for Brain Cancer event at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood Monday night (November 14th) did nothing for the pregnant star. Duff looked more like a pudge than a prego. The Jessica Paster for JustFabulous clutch was cute, though.
We also have to remember that Duff is only 24 and probably doesn’t see anything wrong with wearing an ill-fitting mini, even if it does sparkle. “In the beginning [of my pregnancy] I was thinking, I’m going to wear really loose things, because you don’t really look pregnant at first — you just feel a little bigger than your normal self,” Duff told Us Weekly on the red carpet. “And now that you start to show I think it’s better to wear tighter things, but it’s kind of a challenge to find things!”
Meanwhile, things got a little sticky when girlfriends of George Clooney past and present showed up to the same event. Both Elisabetta Canalis and current Clooneyette Stacey Keibler were invited to the book launch. Canalis, in a rust-colored sleeveless dress that showed off her tatts, brought new boyfriend Mechad Brooks. It’s been reported that the women did not run into one another that night, according to the Daily Mail.
Also at the book launch: Mike Comrie, Amy Adams, Carmen Electra, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, Kym Johnson, Tristan MacManus, David Arquette, Dave Annable, Sofia Monk, Eliza Dushku, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Giles Marini, Jesse Bradford, Jesse Spencer, Josh Duhamel, Rick Fox, and Ryan McPartlin.
