Jennifer Aniston, Lena Dunham, and Naomi Watts Want to Bring Art Classes to More Schools

Lena Dunham, Jennifer Aniston, and Naomi Watts want you to color outside the lines. They, along with other actors, musicians, and artists, have created drawings for LilySarahGrace, an organization that provides supplies to teachers in underfunded schools to help them to teach their curriculum through art.

The fund was founded by Matthew Badger and his partner Abby Ballin after Badger’s three daughters, Lily, Sarah, and Grace, were tragically killed in a fire on Christmas 2011. All three of his daughters had dyslexia, and Badger saw first hand how art classes helped his daughters learn. He has since allocated millions of dollars in supplies to teachers around the country so that they can help their students learn outside of the lines through art.

Starting today, you can donate to Badger’s new Kickstarter campaign, which will raise money to publish a book featuring the drawings of Aniston, Dunham, Watts, as well as Jessica Biel, Diane von Furstenberg, Elle Fanning, and many other celebs (Dunham’s and Watts’ are pictured above). The book, which will be titled You Can’t Memorize This, aims to show that all creative types think outside the box. All proceeds from the book will go to funding these art-driven curriculums in schools.

Head over to LilySarahGrace’s Kickstarter campaign to donate and visit lilysarahgrace.org to learn more about the organization.

Friends Reunion Alert! Watch Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow Get Back Together on Kimmel

For fans who have spent the past decade waiting for a Friends movie, or better yet a Friends reunion, that wish finally came true on Wednesday night. Well, kind of. Jennifer Aniston visited Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her latest film Life of Crime, but her pal Jimmy Kimmel had a bit of a surprise for her during her visit. He had penned a fan fiction script for an episode of Friends, and created a replica of the famous kitchen to boot! And who better to act out a scene from the sitcom than Rachel Green herself?

While Kimmel’s Friends script wasn’t exactly of the best quality (he took on the role of David Schwimmer’s Ross) and he tried to get a faux-annoyed Aniston to wear a Rachel cut-inspired wig (she declined), the actress got by with a little help from, well, her friends. Both Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow popped up to revive their roles as Monica and Phoebe, respectively, and played along with the bit before Kimmel took it just one step too far. Even if his fan fic was lame, he still gave us the gift of seeing the gals of Friends back together again, and for that we’re grateful. (Alright, Friends fellas, you’re next!)

Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama Take a Selfie Together

It looks like Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama are BFFs. The First Lady is undoubtedly a busy woman, but she made time to take an adorable selfie with the singer yesterday. Lopez first posted the snap on Instagram, and Obama later followed suit. “Me and my girl @flotus at #LULAC National convention for the empowerment of Latinos. #represent #keynotespeaker #introingthekeynotespeaker #dreambig,” Lopez captioned the image.

The duo took the photo at the 2014 LULAC National Convention in New York City, where the singer introduced the First Lady for her speech, which focused on advancing the education, civil rights, and employment of Hispanic-Americans through community-based programs. The ladies were on the same style wavelength for the occasion: Each donned pretty floral ensembles. Lopez dazzled in a pale pink Zuhair Murad couture embroidered appliqué blouse and peplum pencil skirt, while Obama glowed in a white and blue print frock by Tanya Taylor.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Latest Red Carpet Look? A Slinky Velvet Dress and Slick Strands

As the face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence has had a long-standing relationship with the brand. In the past year, we’ve witnessed the actress in a nonstop a parade of Dior gowns, couture and otherwise, on the red carpet. In fact, we had seen so much of Lawrence in Dior (falling in Dior, accepting awards in Dior, sitting front row at Dior, posing for Dior) that we could barely remember a time when she wasn’t contractually obligated to wear the label. And that’s why we were so taken aback when she broke her streak and hit the world premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past on Saturday in a non-Dior dress (only Lawrence could rock headlines for playing designer switcheroo!).

The actress stunned all when she stepped out in a slinky velvet jacquard bias-cut Jason Wu slip gown that molded to her every curve. She further amped up the sensuality by pairing the rich fabric with dark, moody accessories, like Ana Khouri jewelry and a black Kotur clutch. What’s more, she even debuted a new hairstyle: a deep-parted style with her longer strands slicked to one side.

It’s definitely a new look for Lawrence, and it’s one we can get behind (though after much deliberation). It could be the beginning of a whole new aesthetic or simply a one-time fluke. As to whether she’ll experiment with other brands or resume her Dior run, we’ll just have to wait until her next red carpet appearance.

In the meantime, take a look back at all her looks on and off the red carpet.
