Emma Thompson's Literary List
Acclaimed English actress Emma Thompson is two-time Oscar winner and an avid reader. In O, The Oprah Magazine, Emma says, "Books are like people, in the sense that they'll turn up in your life when you most need them."
If you have a child on your gift list, Emma recommends The Tale of Mr. Tod by Beatrix Potter. For the mystery lovers on your list, she suggests The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Rebellious teens might like Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs, while nonfiction readers can sink their teeth into Season of Blood by Fergal Keane.
Trisha Yearwood's Dream Denim
If there's someone in your life who's still wearing "mom jeans," take a tip from Trisha Yearwood and shop at the Gap this holiday season. "I'm not a little girl and I'm also really tall," she says. "Gap has these jeans called 'long and lean' … they look really cool on."
For splurge-worthy jeans, Trisha turns to designer Elie Tahari. "[Tahari jeans] look like all the cute little size 0 jeans that all the girls wear," she says.
Friends don't let friends wear bad blue jeans!
