Fashion News: Jessica Simpson gives birth in time for Mother's Day

Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson
For the last few months, anyone paying attention has heard all about Jessica Simpson's maternity wardrobe, baby shower, pregnancy fitness routine, etc. Now she's on her way back to regular clothes. Simpson gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday. I wonder if the next step might involve a wedding to fianc√© Eric Johnson? Which would require a trousseau, of course! That's the happy couple pictured above, at an event last November.  [Los Angeles Times]


Skullcandy has come out with a video in which NBA players James Harden and Kevin Durant "Take a Supermodel to Work." The model in question is Kate Upton, of Sports Illustrated swimsuit fame. She reciprocates by taking them to work with her. This is labeled "Episode 1" so it looks as if we're in for  a series.

Wait a minute. A Kardashian is stepping away from the reality cameras? A little bit. Khloe Kardashian says she's put "Khloe and Lamar" -- the series featuring herself and husband Lamar Odom -- on hold while the NBA player rebuilds his currently stalled career. "I'm a modern girl, but you should put your husband first," she tells People. Oh, but they will still make appearances on E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." [People]
