Speaking of Forbes, J Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyons and out New York politician Christine Quinn were featured in the magazine’s “10 Power Women In-The-Making: Women To Watch.”

Glee’s Lea Michele has signed a book deal for her memoir Brunette Ambition. The part-memoir-part-style-guide will be released in spring 2014. 

THR featured actress Robin Wright (The Princess Bride, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) in its Portraits of Netflix’s Stars. I’m digging her jacket.

Emma Roberts has joined the cast of American Horror Story: Coven. Roberts will play “self-involved party girl” who will probably die since everyone dies on this show.

Congratulations to new mom Rosemarie DeWitt! DeWitt (My Sister’s Sister) gave birth to a girl named Gracie James Livingston. (Whenever I see the name Dewitt I always think of Three’s Company’s Joyce DeWitt aka Janet Wood)
