No, Brenda Song is not in “Emily in Paris”

Many a zillennial fondly remembers Brenda Song from her role as London in “The Suite Life” (both the Of Zack and Cody and On Deck varieties), and there are more than a few who are excited she’s continued her career into Netflix’s hit fashionista indulgence “Emily in Paris”. The only problem? Brenda Song is, uh, not in “Emily in Paris”.

Our confused compatriots may be thinking of Ashley Park, who, opposite Lily Collins, plays Emily’s bohemian bestie Mindy:

Ashley Park is a relative Hollywood newcomer, gracing the stage as Gretchen Weiners in the Broadway production of Mean Girls and appearing in Crazy Rich Asians and Only Murders in the Building. Spoiler alert: in the latest season of Emily in Paris, we see Ashley as Mindy and her unpopular new wealthy beau crash Camille and Gabriel’s engagement party-turned-not-wedding by landing a helicopter on the vineyard lawn. Tres elegant, non?

Now we wait with bated breath for Season 4 as Camille has just announced she is pregnant and outed Gabriel and Emily’s mutual attraction to everyone they know, effectively imploding Emily and Alfie’s relationship. Her dress was cute, though.

Camille White Jacquemus off shoulder dress in Emily in Paris

(P.S. The stunning white off-shoulder mini dress Camille wore to the party is Jacquemus La Robe Biasi and you can get the exact piece on Farfetch’d.)

(P.P.S. This table skirt Emily wore to the same event for these most poignant moments with Gabriel is not to my taste, but if it is to yours, it’s Giambattista Valli 2019. It’s the styling that ruins it for me – it should be giving drama as it does on the model, but it’s giving Kate Middleton meets the Pointer Sisters.)

Brenda Song Emily in Paris

So what is Brenda Song up to these days, if not Emily in Paris? Since being a tween television star Brenda has appeared in The Social Network, Scandal, New Girl, and more recently the Hulu dramedy Dollface. While we love Brenda’s work, I’m more interested to see what’s in store for Mindy and the charmingly tousled Benoit in Emily en Paris Season 4!

Disney and Nick’s Redhead Stars: Where Are They Now?

Remember rushing home to flip on the Disney Channel? The fleet of young stars were almost universally destined for greater things – and to become the next generation’s huge hotties (just look at how Ross Lynch has grown 👀).

As you know, here at Sassy Dove we’re all about the redheads, so here are some of our favorite redheaded stars and starlets of Disney and Nickelodeon fame and where they’ve spent their grownup time (plus, their best look yet [imo]).

Bella Thorne

Perhaps the most infamous in her claims to post-Disney fame on this list, Bella’s rise to grownup stardom has been a controversial one. Her days in Shake it Up with Zendaya and Blended with Adam Sandler were soon overshadowed by a highly active SnapChat account and ultimately, an OnlyFans debut. Since she has also directed an, ermmm… grownup film, we can say her Disney days are well over.

Despite Bella’s public antics and constant speculation about her sobriety, surgeries and more (which she seems to revel in), the girl’s got style – even if it isn’t yours, you’ve gotta respect it. Check our fave Bella fashion moment: devouring French braids, Versace heels and an olive green minidress on the set of Extra with Mario Lopez to promote the #LoveYourNature campaign.

Debby Ryan

You may have met Debby in her Disney sitcom Jessie where she portrayed a sassy Texan babysitter looking after a group of rich siblings (or maybe it was The Suite Life On Deck!), but her recent fame has been all about the memes. Who hasn’t seen Debby’s cringey smirk or DJ intro from Radio Rebel?

Debby has had so many phenomenal fashion moments, but for us she’s best in this YANINA Spring 2018 couture she wore to the AMAs:

Calum Worthy

Speakling of everyone’s favorite endearingly-weird sidekick Dez from Austin and Ally hasn’t fallen off the map – in fact, he was on Hulu’s smash based-on-a-true-nightmare The Act as Gypsy Rose Blanchard’s unhinged love interest and accomplice Nick Godejohn, and will start in the new comedy series Reboot with Keegan-Michael Key and Judy Greer.

While Calum isn’t featured on as many runways as most of this list, we love that he’s a risk taker who channels Dez in his fashion moments, including this daring suit from the Emmys:

Ariana Grande

While she’s not a redhead now, Ari made her debut in our hearts and minds as the ruby-locked Kat in Victorious and later, Sam & Kat. Obviously, her career has exploded as it was quickly revealed that Ariana possesses one of the greatest voices of her generation. Combined with a keen sense of what pop wants, there was never any stopping this babe.

There’s no shortage of current-era Ari out there, so let’s feature our girl pre-Sweetener – she wore this adorbs strapless nude-pink ensemble to the Nick 2011 Kids Choice Awards, major throwback!

What stars are you remembering from the days of Gen Y yore? Should we do blondes next? A Degrassi: TNG throwback perhaps for Sir Drake? Let us know in the comments below!

Celebrities in Princess-Worthy Ombre Dresses

Every now and again, a fashion trend comes along that just entrances me. Long, romantic, flowy ombre dresses are that trend today.

Elie Saab is leading the charge, but he’s not the only designer to make it happen. Emanuel Ungaro, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, and Amanda Wakeley are all playing along. Continue reading Celebrities in Princess-Worthy Ombre Dresses

Amy Schumer’s “Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup” is EVERYTHING.

You are beautiful, in every single way… but you don’t know you’re beautiful, and that’s what makes you beautiful. You’re amazing just the way you are, and you don’t have to try try try try so hard, you don’t have to give it all away. You don’t have to change a single thing. Take your makeup off. Let your hair down. Look into the mirror at yourself. Don’t you like you? ‘Cause I like you.

If you’re inspired by these pop pick-me-ups and want a guy who thinks you’re pretty without any makeup on, then hey you – it’s your turn to see the beauty in yourself: Continue reading Amy Schumer’s “Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup” is EVERYTHING.
