Holidays

See the Most Popular Patriotic Dress in Hollywood (Hint: It's Been Worn by Meryl Streep and Wendy Williams)

Jul/04/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

Catherine Malandrino’s American flag shirtdress is almost as much of a classic as Old Glory itself. Every year a new star steps out in the design, putting her own twist on the red-white-and-blue number. The frock seems to appeal to all age demographics, can be worn belted and is an easy way to show your patriotic side this Fourth of July. Unfortunately, it’s sold out pretty much everywhere. Since we can’t nab our own, let’s look back at the celebs who have the iconic frock hanging in their closets instead.

Halle Berry was the first to wear the design, choosing a sleeveless version for her Swordfish promo tour in 2001. Meryl Streep hit the carpet for Doubt in 2009 in her stars and stripes, and in 2012, Tatyana Ali wore it to the BET Upfronts.

More recently, Katy Perry and John Mayer coordinated their patriotic looks last Fourth of July (see photo below). And this year, two stars stepped out in the dress: Wendy Williams wore it to film an episode in May, while Miss USA fittingly displayed her patriotic pride while touring her crown back in June.

What do you get a mom of six (who happens to be a movie star) for Mother’s Day? Angelina Jolie‘s 5-year-old son came up with a creative answer: a doodle of her latest role, transformed into an etched gold ring.

Of course, Knox’s dad, Brad Pitt — who presented the Maleficent star with a very different ring in 2012 — had a hand in the sweet surprise.

“Brad’s really creative with the kids, so they made a bunch of things like pillows and notebooks,” Jolie tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Knoxy made me a picture of Maleficent that they made into a ring.” Read More

With all the cupcakes and chocolate in the office, we’re having a hard time focusing at work today. But as soon as we spotted this heart braid photo on celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa’s Insta feed (see the snap above), we knew we had to investigate. Luckily, we got all the details on the fun plait, including a video tutorial!

“I absolutely love braids and try to create unique styles with them weekly,” Potempa, who has worked with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lea Michele and Jaime King, tells PEOPLE. “This idea popped into my head as I got into the spirit for Valentine’s Day. The combination of the ponytail and the heart braid make it a subtle, yet sweet style. This look is perfect for a romantic date or a fun night on the town with the girls.”

Admit it: You still get excited every time you see your boyfriend (or any friend!) present you with a red-and-pink striped Victoria’s Secret bag on Valentine’s Day. The lingerie giant does V-Day better than anyone, and we caught up with Angels Candice Swanepoel and Karlie Kloss to get their take on the romantic holdiay.

“It’s one of the only holidays that Victoria’s Secret can really go wild with,” Swanepoel told people at the brand’s Bombshell Day event in N.Y.C. “It’s for women to indulge and enjoy feeling feminine and being sexy.”

As for what she wants from boyfriend Hermann Nicoli, Swanepoel remained coy. “It’s his opportunity to impress and do something different. I love getting flowers always. Even if we’re not together, like say I’m working somewhere, and he calls and delivers flowers. That’s really nice.”
