Most Buzzed About Dresses:
1. Julia Roberts in Elie Saab: Our September cover girl truly wowed in a midnight blue minidress, which was fully embroidered with stones and pearls, and featured a peplum waist encrusted with Swarovski crystals.
2. Lena Dunham in Giambattista Valli: Plucked straight from the runway, the Girls star paired a white pajama-style top with a sweeping ombré skirt complete with train.

HBO is putting together a sports mockumentary project, and the network has pulled together a rather promising comedic ensemble. Girls writer/co-executive producer Murray Miller is teaming up with Andy Samberg to create 7 Days in Hell, which is described as a mockumentary send-up of professional tennis. Per THR, the one-off HBO Comedy Event will star Samberg as a superstar tennis “bad boy” who becomes embroiled in a seven-day tennis match at Wimbeldon with an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver, played by Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. The current roster also includes Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, June Squibb, and Soledad O’Brien, who will play herself.
This sounds like the kind of delightfully goofy project that’s perfect for Samberg, and I’m very curious to see how Harington’s comedic skills stack up. No word on when the project may air, but one assumes Samberg will have to fit the filming schedule into his hiatus from Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
