Sofia Vassilieva plays Cameron's daughter. At first I worried her dress was a little mature (yes, "worried." I don't know how I sleep) but in fact, she's nearly 17.

Abigail Breslin, on the other hand, is 13. My mom didn't let me wear anything strapless to Bar Mitvahs, so I've sort of inherited that prejudice.

When did Rachel Zoe go from villainess to "Oh, Rachel, you harmless, vaguely endearing icon with your jumpsuits!" Wow, that show is genius PR!
