A year after launching their collection-for-a-cause line of bow ties with Chicago-based online neckwear purveyor the Tie Bar, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and lawyer husband Justin Mikita are taking their ties to local bricks-and-mortar retail -- at least temporarily. The Tie the Knot pop-up, which will be located on the seventh floor of the Beverly Center near Macy's and across from Tiffany's (in a space formerly occupied by Dodo) starting today, will be stocking ties from the label's just-released fourth collection that includes a Pro-Athlete All-Star guest designer series with pieces by former NFL player Scott Fujita, current pro-football player Chris Kluwe and WNBA player Brittney Griner.

Emmy-nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson ("Modern Family") and partner Justin Mikita have just added a new neck knot to their wildly successful month-and-a-half-old line of jaunty bow ties -- a formal style suitable for wedding wear. The couple launched their Tie the Knot line, a collaboration with Chicago-based neckwear and accessories e-tailer the Tie Bar, on Nov. 15, with all proceeds going to fund various groups fighting for marriage equality. The inaugural collection of 20 limited-edition ties, which benefited the group Human Rights Campaign sold out by early December.

Admit it, at 45 years old, the Advocate looks good. Over those years, the LGBT magazine has seen the same challenges as any other print publication but has forged ahead with its watchdog duties in human rights as well as being a pop culture compass. The glossy will celebrate the big 4-5 at the Beverly Hilton on Thursday, welcoming a host of celebs and activists, as well as fashion and social types. Not to mention inductees to the Heroes Hall of Fame, a list of notables that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, Cynthia Nixon and Jake Gyllenhaal.

For a recent episode of the TV series "Modern Family," Raul Ojeda crafted a pair of shoes covered in red sequins for actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson. His character, Mitchell, shows off the shoes for a "Wizard of Oz"-themed birthday party he throws for his partner, Cam. A decade ago, Raul Ojeda was working as a shoe shiner. Now the 29-year-old is leaving his own footprint in Hollywood, supplying custom-made shoes to stars such as Steve Carell and Sally Field. Ojeda is the owner of Los Angeles-based Willie's Shoe Service, a shoe repair shop that has been providing footwear to the entertainment industry since 1956, when Willebaldo "Willie" Rivera opened a small business across from Paramount Pictures on Melrose Avenue.

Matthew McConaughey (leading man of the year), Will Ferrell (funnyman of the year), Pharrell Williams, Andy Samberg and Julie Delpy were among the honorees who turned out to GQ magazine's West Coast Men of the Year bash Tuesday night. Now in its 18th year, the event can always be counted on for an impressive celebrity turnout, and this year was no exception. What was different was the venue -- the Wilshire Ebell instead of the Chateau Marmont, where it had been held for the last several years.

Mel Brooks brimmed with brio recently, chatting up next weekend's three-day mounting of "The Producers" at the Hollywood Bowl. Firing quips and shtick in lethal arcs at most questions, Brooks pivoted to incisiveness when talking about casting Jesse Tyler Ferguson in the musical's co-lead role of nervous/nerdy accountant Leo Bloom. "Now Jesse, he has a lot of Leo in him, I think," said Brooks. "Jesse is fragile. He is a good trembler. You get from him that life is a big struggle. " Ferguson is an established TV presence, a comic mainstay and two-time Emmy nominee playing a gay parent on"Modern Family.

When you gather five comedic actors to discuss their work, the conversation naturally turns to, well, pain. And anguish. And desperation. But thankfully, when the performers are as thoughtful as Laura Dern (who plays Amy, an aggressively well-meaning woman on HBO's "Enlightened"), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (who as Mitchell is raising a daughter with his partner on ABC's "Modern Family"), Ed Helms (the under-appreciated Andy on NBC's "The Office"), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who as Vice President Selina Meyer finds her ambitions thwarted on HBO's "Veep")
