All the details are out about the gown that "Shedding for the Wedding" host Sara Rue wore when she married Kevin Price on Saturday. She chose the "Dahlia" dress from designer Amsale Aberra  -- a strapless silk taffeta ball gown with ruched sweetheart neckline and natural waist. The gown, made with 45 yards of silk taffeta, featured a skirt adorned with delicate hand-pleated embroidery from the designer’s Blue Label Collection. [People]

Abosworth,jpg Actress Kate Boswoth and stylist Cher Coulter's JewelMint jewelry line definitely has an L.A. vibe. So where in Los Angeles do they go for inspiration? The Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market, the Fairfax Market, Opening Ceremony, Confederacy and Satine. When not working, Kate likes to chill at the Huntington Gardens; Cher at Chateau Marmont. And the two are excited about their latest venture, the JewelMint Celebrity Curator Series, which offers pieces selected by a celebrity (this month it's Rachel Bilson) with proceeds going to benefit the person's favorite charity. [PopSugar LA]
