Nina Dobrev just raised the bar for #friendshipgoals.

On Tuesday night, the former Vampire Diaries actress helped host an intimate girls’ night, complete with a homemade dinner that included spicy orange chicken wings and steak tacos with mole verde, and a special screening of Grease: Live.

While there’s no need for an excuse to go all out on a Tuesday night — hey, we do it whenever we’re in the mood for chocolate cake, House re-runs and a serious heart-to-heart — Dobrev’s dinner celebrated BFF and Grease: Live star Julianne Hough — who blew everyone away with her portrayal of Sandy on NBC live production of the ’70s musical in January — at the pro dancer’s home.

“I definitely feel feel like I’m part of the Grease squad,” Dobrev writes on Instagram, referencing her very own Pink Ladies jacket, which Hough gifted her that same night. “So incredibly happy to be a (micro) part of this (HUGE) special experience of yours. Even if it’s just by wearing a jacket.”

It’s true: Best friends who cook together and gift each other super-thoughtful gifts, stay together.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

That tray of 9 tiny wings, spread so far apart is laughable.
