REESE'S CLASS ACT: Reese Witherspoon appears to be letting bygones be bygones when it comes to Chanel. According to her publicist, Nancy Ryder, the actress has moved on from the snafu — which saw Witherspoon wearing the same dress on the red carpet at the Golden Globes that Kirsten Dunst wore three years ago to the same event — and doesn't harbor any grudge. Nor does her publicity team. "I am a fan of Chanel," Ryder said. "I have no issues with Chanel. It was an unfortunate mistake on their part, and unfortunately it happened with Reese, but people make mistakes. Reese and I continue to support Chanel, as do my other clients." What is regrettable, then? "It's unfortunate that this is overshadowing Reese's win," said Ryder. As for Witherspoon's Oscar dress plans, Ryder had no comment since nominations will not be announced until Jan. 31.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
