The latest “Got Milk?” ad, features Rebecca Romijn and her twin baby girls, Dolly (right) and Charlie (left).  Here’s what Rebecca had to say about the shoot:

“It was challenging,” she told PEOPLE last night at a launch event for the ad at the W Hotel in Los Angeles. “The last time I did this campaign in 1998, we shot it in Times Square, middle of a tropical storm, during rush hour, in July, without permits…I thought that was chaotic. Well, guess what? Shooting with nine-month old twins when one of them is not havin’ it all day long…”

“I think this is one of maybe three frames where she {Dolly} wasn’t screaming her head off and that was way more chaotic than the one that I did in 1998. I think Jerry {O’Connel} was probably doing cartwheels behind the photographer trying to get them to calm down.” Sister Charlie, meanwhile, “was loving it — loving the lights, loving everyone standing around looking at her.”

So cute!

This week Life & Style magazine is featuring the first pictures of Kourtney Kardashian’s son, Mason Dash Disick, with boyfriend Scott Disick.

Here’s a sneak peek from Kourtney and Scott on their new life with baby Mason:

L&S: Congrats! How does it feel to be parents?

Kourtney: It feels amazing. It’s just so indescribable. You don’t get how good being a parent feels until it happens to you.

Scott: My first time holding him was definitely special. But holding him the second time was even more special, and the third time was even more special than that. I fall so much more in love with this kid every day. I can’t imagine how much more in love with him I’m going to be by the time he’s 5 or 10 or 20!

L&S: How was the labor itself?

Kourtney: It was surprisingly easy and just an incredible experience. I always thought your first is supposed to be really hard, but it was easy. I have an amazing doctor. He actually delivered me! The room environment was just so relaxing, and everyone I wanted to be there was there–Scott, my mom, Kim and Khloé. No one under 18 is allowed in, so my little sisters Kendall and Kylie couldn’t come in. Actually, you’re only allowed to have two people in the room because of the swine flu — so we snuck Kim and Khloé in!

L&S: What is your daily routine like now?

Kourtney: We’re on Mason’s schedule, waking up every couple of hours to breast-feed. But it’s fun to get up and see him. I miss him by the time I see him again.

L&S: Can you see having another baby in the future?

Kourtney: Right now I’m obsessed with Mason and want to give him all my time. But being with him has definitely made me think about having another one! Kim and I are 18 months apart. Growing up, we did everything together. It would be nice for Mason to have a little brother or sister that many months apart too.

At five foot ten and a size 4, supermodel Lara Stone has struggled to fit in. Stone is about two sizes larger than her modeling peers, but this has not stopped her career from skyrocketing. “Lara Stone has a gorgeous women’s body,” affirms fan Karl Lagerfeld.

Stone has appeared in ad campaigns for the likes of Givenchy and has walked the runway for almost every major designer including Marc Jacobs and Balmain. In the article Hello Gorgeous, Vogue recalls the days when stylists came to a shoot armed with pins to make the clothes fit the models and examines the absurdity of the thought that clothes only hang nicely on super-skinny girls (aka coat hangers). The opposite is also true – some clothes look better on bodies with “boobs,” which is why Stone’s career has flourished.

Could her unexpected success mean the return of curves? In the January issue of Vogue, Stone opens up to Rebecca Johnson about how difficult it can be to constantly hear how different she is, her methods of coping, and how she views herself now.

 Highlights From The Article

On being a size four in a land of zeros: “It’s depressing when the clothes don’t fit and you are always the odd one out…I was on a shoot last week and the stylist took out this tight corset dress and said, ‘Here, put it on,’ and I was like, ‘Who are you kidding?’ There was no way, so that was very rude of her. It’s like, come on, she’s a woman; whether you’re buying jeans at the mall, or wearing couture, you know what it’s like for clothes not to fit. It’s not an easy kind of rejections, because it’s very personal. It’s you, you’re body. You take it to heart.”

On trying to lose weight and how it created a whole new set of problems: “She has tried to lose weight with diet and exercise, but nothing worked: ‘ I even tried pills, but they made my heart race.’ Eventually, Stone admits, she started drinking alcohol to get through the day. Nobody in the business noticed…Stone knew she had a problem. ‘I was waking up shaking, I couldn’t do anything until I had a drink. I hated it. I didn’t like the person I became. Plus, I was looking like absolute shit, waking up with a swollen red face, pimples everywhere.’”

On how she views herself now: “People still tell me I’m fat, but when I look in the mirror, that’s not what I see.”

The January issue of Vogue, on newsstands nationwide by December 22, features Rachel McAdams, the star of the highly anticipated Sherlock Holmes.

The Canadian actress keeps track of her day by writing in her diary before going to bed. Since she is such a famously private, relatively reclusive star, one can’t help speculating what she writes about. In the style of her Keel’s Simple Diary (with fill-in-the-blanks, multiple choices, and other quirky ways to keep records), Vogue’s Sally Singer gives us a peek inside the mind behind Hollywood’s freshest face.

Highlights from the article:

On working with Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls:
“I just remember marveling about how much she knew as an actor, how much she understood. She did very few takes and had this naturalness to her. And beyond that, I was 26 at the time. I’d be asked, ‘Where do you go out?’ ”McAdams was the exact opposite of her Mean Girls character, the evil Regina George: “My mother never put an emphasison looks. She let us grow up on our own time line. She never forced any beauty regimen into my world.” McAdams was teased in high school for not shaving her legs. “ ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’ she asked her mom. Mom: ‘Once you start, there’s no turning back.’ ”

The actress on being green:
“I don’t really desire things, I prefer to spend my money on experiences, on meals or travel. . . . I look at the world through a green lens now. But you can’t make yourself crazy. That feeling of green guilt can be really inhibiting. It’s about a changing mind-set, remembering to turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth.”

McAdams describes her perfect day:
“1995, on the sofa: ‘I grew up watching so much television. I was really into soap operas. I’d begin with Days of our Lives, then Another World, and finish off with General Hospital. And before dinner I’d watch Oprah. I would fake sick all the time to the point where I’d convince myself I was sick. In high school I really didn’t pay attention. I took the bare minimum to get by.”

Christina Aguilera tears up talking about her husband, Jordan Bratman.

RebaMcEntire out gayReba McEntire’s album, Keep on Loving You, was released this week.  In an interview with with Out.com, a website for the gay community, the singer said she chose the title as a tribute to her fans; that includes all of her fans.

When addressing her more conservative fans who may not understand her being interviewed in a gay publication, Reba said, “I just try not to judge. Don’t judge me, and I won’t judge you. And that’s what it says in the Bible — ‘Don’t judge.'”

Keep an open mind,” Reba added. “That would be my voice. I have gay friends. I have a lot of straight friends. I don’t judge them. I take them for what they are. They’re my friends, and I can’t defend my feelings for them, other than I like ’em.”

When asked her thoughts on same-sex marriage, Reba replied, “Again, I can’t judge that. I have gay friends who have partners, and I see where they would want to get married. I understand why. So, I can’t judge that.”

Reba and her husband, Narvel Blackstock, have been married for 20 years.

dress for less suit

Ryan Kohnen, a 29-year-old entrepreneurial phenom and author of the book Young Professional’s Guide to Success,  provided Marvelous Girl with the top 5 ways to dress for an interview for less than $100 below:

1)      Go monochromatic. Dressing in one color is always polished and can make up for the fact that your suit isn’t Armani.
2)      Develop a relationship with a tailor.  Even a $20 pair of Gap dress pants are interview-worthy if they fit right.
3)      Discount retailers and off-season sales are your friends.  Last season’s perfectly fashionable castoffs can be yours for often one quarter of the price.
4)      Separates are an option, especially in neutral colors.  A navy cardigan can replace a navy jacket-especially when paired with a navy pencil skirt.
5)      Limit jewelry.  It can tend towards expensive or showy, and neither will do you any favors while you’re looking for work.

In Kohnen’s latest book he pulls together the advice of over 70 CEOs, top executives, and community leaders- people like Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea Company; Hala Moddelmog, CEO of Susan G. Komen For The Cure; Essie L. Calhoun, Chief Diversity Officer of Eastman Kodak Company; and Ellen J. Kullman, CEO of DuPontÑand to not only help readers find jobs, but how to do it.
