Jennifer Garner, grabbing coffee with a female companion at celeb favorite coffee shop Caffe Luxxe on Santa Monica’s Montana Avenue. Dressed casually in a lilac sweater, maternity jeans and sneakers, the makeup-free and pregnant star was oblivious to the paparazzi outside. Her tipple of choice? Decaf of course!
Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia, picking up gift wrap and ribbon at the Container Store in Manhattan before the holidays. “They looked very happy and smiley together,” a source says. “Milo even carried the bags out for Hayden.”
Making an even sweeter stop: Sarah Jessica Parker, who popped into Dylan’s Candy Bar in East Hampton, N.Y., for a box of Jujyfruits. The solo shopper also took home a couple of pairs of sweatpants, Blow Pops and a big package of caramel bull’s eyes. And, as she left, she wished the staff a happy New Year.
Brody Jenner, celebrating the premiere of his new MTV reality show Bromance at ONE Sunset in Los Angeles. With girlfriend Jayde Nicole and mom in tow, Jenner dressed casually in a striped button-down and oversized jean shorts. But it wasn’t just a family affair: He sipped on Belvedere vodka throughout the night, and took shots of Patron and Dom Perignon with friends.
