Magazines: Marie Claire scan

Here's Rashida in the Radar section of Marie Claire's March issue.

WOMAN TO WATCH: Rashida Jones

WHY SHE'S ON OUR RADAR: The freckled fox plays Paul Rudd's unflappable fiancée in the bromantic comedy I Love You, Man.
HER SHTICK: The Harvard-educated Hollywood habitué -she's the daughter of music legend Quincy Jones and '70s Mod Squad hottie Peggy Lipton- is the resident smart chick, always armed with a snappy comeback.
AS SEEN IN: Unhitched, The Office, Boston Public

CLING-FREE: In I Love You, Man, Jones, 32, plays a self-possessed guy's girl who encourages her fiancé to have his own life and friends. "I like to fancy myself as being that unconditional," says Jones, who's been romantically linked to low-key It boys DJ Mark Ronson and actor John Krasinski. "I'm pretty independent, and when I'm in a relationship, I support my partner's independence."
IN THE COMPANY OF MEN: "I spend most of my time with my guy friends. If you don't have that looming sexual tension, men tend to be incredibly honest, candid, and communicative. Girls can be complicated. Guys just see it -and tell it- like it is."
CHASING AMY: Next up, Jones joins Amy Poehler's much-hyped new (as yet untitled) NBC series. "I'm a superfan of hers. I used to watch her perform at Upright Cititzens Brigade. It's such a boon that I work with her."
MOD SQUAD REDUX? "If I remade it, in my dream version, I'd costar with Justin Timberlake and Q-Tip in Mod Squad: The Musical."

MONKEY BUSINESS: Growing up among the famous left a mark -literally. "Bubbles," she laughs, about a scar on her hand courtesy of Michael Jackson's pet chimp. "Forever to be remembered."

Magazines: Glamour scans

Rashida's house in L.A. is featured in Glamour magazine's March issue. It looks amazing and so does she, especially in that blue John Galliano dress.

How To Do Anything Better Guide: How To Make Your Home Instantly Grown-Up

A star turn on The Office brought Rashida Jones to L.A. But crashing with family and friends soon grew old. So she got a place of her own and made it into the sophisticated retreat she always wanted.

How to Create a Space That's Elegant and Inviting
"I'm all about having people over, so I wanted to make this a completely welcoming place -and not overly girly," explains 33-year-old actress Rashida Jones, whose movie I Love You, Man opens this month. She turned to her good pals, decorating team Katie Fine and Estee Stanley, for help. "Once we were done fixing it up, one of Rashida's guy friends said it was 'the coolest girl's house' he'd ever been to, which was pretty much what we were going for," says Fine, who conveniently lives right across the street.

Magazines: People (V. Day sighting)

There was also a small item about Rashida in People but I can't find the magazine to scan it.

Basically it said she was seen at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont with Amy Poehler and Will Arnett on Valentine's Day.

Movies: I Love You, Man clips

Three clips from I Love You, Man have come out and Rashida is in the first one. It's Red Band so NSFW.

"The "Speakerphone" clip displays the scene when Rashida Jones's Zooey calls her girlfriends to tell them about her getting married to Paul Rudd's Peter Klaven and puts them on a speaker phone with Klaven listening. While discussing about her wedding plan, her friends switch the topic to her sex life with Klaven."

See the others at the source. "Boat Race" is gross but v. funny.

Release date: March 20, 2009

Appearances: "Vanity Fair Portraits" exhibition

Here's a nice pic of Rashida and Rainn Wilson found while browsing the Vanity Fair site. It's from a swanky photography exhibition party held on October 21, 2008.

Mischa, Minnie, and Mandy Celebrate "Vanity Fair Portraits"

The magazine came to life last night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where editor Graydon Carter and Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey hosted a preview party for “Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913–2008,” an exhibition of vintage prints and contemporary images shot by photographers from Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton to Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, and, of course, Leibovitz.

Sightings: Inside the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rashida was hanging out with some funny people at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party
Amidst the glitz was a crew of comedians cracking jokes off to the side, including Sacha Baron Cohen, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Segal, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride. The conversation ranged from Jewish culture to Rogen’s query as to whether masturbation could be used “as a form of weight control.”

Appearances: Oscar Night Parties

Rashida attended two Oscar night parties yesterday - the 17th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party at the Pacific Design Center and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted by Graydon Carter at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

Rashida Jones sparkled in a fun sequined frock by 3.1 Phillip Lim at the Oscars afterparty. The ruffle overlay adds interest to her neckline, and notice how the taupe tone goes perfectly against her skin tone. Gunmetal sandals, silver hoop earrings, a bangle, and a shiny cocktail ring are her accessories of choice.

Magazines: Sassy (1992)

Reader Casey also sent some awesome rare scans from Sassy magazine. They're from the February 1992 issue (srsly!). It's a cute little article about their relationship, personal style and favorite products.

"Rashida's 15 and thinks meat is gross..."


"Actually I was a really big cheeseball in seventh grade. I wore hairspray, over-the-knee socks, acid-wash bubble skirts, and listened to Tiffany. It was really sick. I used to wear pink lipstick, blue eyeliner and green mascara. Don't ask me why."

K: The one way to drive Rashida crazy is to tease her about her boyfriends or to cut in on her phone calls. But she steals my shoelaces. That's the most frustrating thing in the world.
R: I do steal her shoelaces. Wait till she gets home.

Photographer: Bari Lynn

Big, big thanks to Casey!

Appearances: Elizabethtown premiere (2005)

The pic with Seth is from the Elizabethtown movie premiere at AMC Loews Lincoln Square in New York City, October 10, 2005. Here's a couple more posing together :)
