WORKING MOM: Paula Patton HEADS To "GMA" To Support "Working" Women As Brand Ambassador For Ellen Tracy

Paula Patton appeared on "GMA" this morning in support of working women around the globe and to promote her latest Ellen Tracy campaign. See pics inside... 

Warcraft star and mommy of Julian Fuego (whom she shares with soon-to-be ex husband Robin Thicke) Paula Patton was spotted in Times Square this morning, rocking a tan fur-trimmed trench coat straight from the Ellen Tracy collection. (You can cop it for yourself over at Edited In Chic!)

She was heading into "GMA" for an early morning chat about her fashion campaign for Ellen Tracy and her upcoming documentary Women Hyphenated (a part of their global initiative).

In honor of Ellen Tracy's 65th anniversary, Paula spoke about the company's global initiative to commemorate women’s contributions during a previous interview saying

"As I continue to evolve in my life, I felt like Ellen Tracy was a natural partnership. The clothes are timeless, flattering and wearable from morning to night. I am also very proud that as part of my work with Ellen Tracy, I will be able to highlight and bring much deserved and necessary attention to women of all backgrounds who shape the world every day.”

While championing working women (and her upcoming films), Paula also talked with Robin Roberts -- in a white version of her fave Ellen Tracy peplum dress and colorful Louboutins -- about the Ellen Tracy Spring 2015 Campaign and Collection Launch party that she's hosting tonight. In other Paula news, she's nabbed the lead role in the upcoming ABC series "Runner." 

So...it looks that Paula will be a frequent guest on ABC platforms in the future.  Welcome back!

Fourteen-year-old Willow Smith poses for the spring edition of CR Fashion Book.  Check out Willow's couture pieces inside and see what she says about her ever-changing look.

Willow Smith posed for CF Fashion Book's Issue 6, the publication founded by former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris Carine Roitfeld, where she modeled couture pieces from Lisa Eisner in a pictorial shot by Bjorn Iooss. Inside the issue (available March 5th), Willow opens up about her ever-changing style saying, "I just want to have dreads. I want to embrace my full self, as natural as I can be."

She also discusses "Willow 2.0" - which the mag calls 'the part of herself that evades definition'. "I think my look changes all of the time and right now it's a bit more messy, kind of grungy."


See the gorgeous pics below:

IN CASE YOU MISSED: Eva Marcille, Amber Rose & Drew Sidora In ‘Sister Code’ Trailer + Is There Bad Blood Between Nicole Behaire & “Sleepy Hollow” Producers?

We have the trailer of the upcoming rom-com Sister Code, starring Eva Marcille, Amber Rose and Drew Sidora. In tv news, it appears to be some drama brewing between actress Nicole Beharie and the producers of “Sleepy Hollow.” Check out the trailer and get the deets inside….

We’ve talked about the upcoming film Sister Code, starring “America’s Next Top Model” winner Eva Marcille, Wiz Khalifa’s estranged wife Amber Rose and actress Drew Sidora, who starred as T-Boz in the TLC biopic. And now the official trailer for the dramedy has been released.

Sister Code tells the story of three foster sisters (Eva, Amber & Drew) with extremely different personalities whose world is turned upside down when their foster mother passes away. The James sisters then have to lean on one another when a tragic secret is revealed and rely on the teachings their mother instilled in them as children about sticking by one another no matter what. 

Eva stars as the shrewd businesswoman Sheila, Drew plays the caregiver Lavae, and Amber is the free-spirited younger sister Lexi. Corey Grant is directing the film and it also stars “Real Husbands of Hollywood” and “Survivor’s Remorse” star Erica Ash, actress Essence Atkins, Duane Martin, Anne-Marie Johnson (who plays the mother) and former “Moesha” star Marcus Paulk.

Peep the trailer below:

Sister Code is slated to hit (certain) theaters May 8th.


In television news....

Are the producers of drama series “Sleepy Hollow” shading their lead star Nicole Beharie? If you ask her, she would say yes!

As one of the lead stars of “Sleepy Hollow,” you would think the producers of the show would have asked her to do commentary for the season 2 DVD collection. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.

A few days ago, Nicole posted the pic above with the caption that “When the show ur on doesn't invite you do to DVD commentary...” We hear her co-star Orlando Jones wasn't invited to do commentary either.

So what’s the beef? Well, it appears some animosity is brewing after Nicole’s character was scaled back a lot last season, seeing that she was supposed to be the lead role. And there seems to be a big push, instead, for one of the white female cast members. Hmph.


Fans of the show aren't happy about it either. Peep the tweets:









Actress Anika Noni Rose offered up some encouragement to Nicole via Twitter tweeting:


Nice to see fellow YBF actresses supporting their own.
