Justin Timberlake's wife Jessica Biel is having fun taste-testing as she moves ahead with plans to open a family-friendly restaurant in Santa Monica, California. The actress has teamed up with celebrity stylist pal Estee Stanley to create Au Fudge, where they hope A-list stars will bring their kids for the diner's signature sweet treats.
Posting photos of some of the menu items online on Tuesday (18Feb14), Biel wrote, "Things are getting delicious at our @aufudge tasting! @EsteeStanley & I can't wait to share these with you... We promise to share.
Stanley has also taken to Instagram to share photos of the restaurant's desserts and one shot of Biel sampling a cookie. She writes: "Cant wait to open and feed you all!!!"
Biel will be taking restaurant tips from her husband - Timberlake co-owns the Southern Hospitality barbecue meccas in New York and Denver, Colorado and he was also an investor in Los Angeles' Chi.
Designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are lending their fashion expertise to youngsters by creating outfits for a children's style blog. The former child stars, who oversee their own high-end labels, have created trendy looks for children models on Ladys & Gents, a webpage started up by the Olsens' stylist pals Estee Stanley and Jenni Kayne.
The actresses both posed in photos for the site with outfits they put together using colourful pieces from J. Crew's kids' collection Crewcuts.
Glee star Lea Michele has opened up the doors to her Los Angeles home after an interior decorator pal gave the property a complete makeover. The singer/actress turned to her friend Estee Stanley to transform her West Hollywood bungalow, and has shared the chic end results on interior design site Domaine Home.
Michele's bachelorette pad features a collection of photos of her idol Barbra Streisand as well as a writing desk she calls 'Bradshaw' - after Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex and the City heroine Carrie Bradshaw.
Stanley says, "The only direction she gave me was that she wanted it to be cozy. And not to touch Barbra... She squealed and sort of almost cried (when she saw it). I think she was shocked that she loved it," while Michele insists, "I always had the utmost faith!"
The Social Network star proposed to Biel in December (11) and the couple celebrated its love during a private bash at the home of Timberlake's longtime friend Estee Stanley.
Guests dined on gourmet appetisers prepared by Wolfgang Puck Catering and a slew of celebrities were on hand to show their support - Amy Adams, TV host Ellen DeGeneres and her actress wife Portia DeRossi, and Timberlake's former N'Sync bandmates Lance Bass and JC Chasez all attended the party.
Biel donned a leopard-print halter dress with a hot pink belt for the event, according to UsMagazine.com.
A source tells the website, "Jessica and Justin were mingling both separately and together throughout the party. Jessica seems to be very close with Justin's friends and vice versa. You can see that they have been dating for a long time and really know each others friends and family well. The party was a fun celebration and a preview of what's to come with the wedding."
