Would love to know how it works when it comes to wedding photo negotiations. Like does George Clooney tell PEOPLE and HELLO! that "I won't take anything less than what Brad got"? Or does he say "If you give me x percent more, I'll give you x percent more - more photos, more quotes, more access"?
And is there a photo checklist from the publication that has to be satisfied? Like do PEOPLE and HELLO! specify that they want:
- The Dress, front and back
- The Cake
- Bride and Groom together, must be touching
- $100k bonus if you give us a kiss
- $100k bonus if you give us a photo of celebrity guests
- at least one group family shot
- at least one sappy quote
Who has the power here? The seller or the buyer? The buyer ended up getting shafted for the Timberlake wedding when all the pictures came back low quality and not all that impressive. Read Full Intro

Normally I’d post this in LifeStyle but Chanel’s always a spectacle and every other runway has been cockblocked by Amal Alamuddin so Karl had to do something extra, as he does. The clothes were secondary to the messages. A rally. A protest rally. And that becomes fashion. Full Story
Jeremy Renner’s new movie, Kill The Messenger, opens on October 10 (against RDJ’s The Judge—do you think they’re giving each other a hard time about box office competition?), and as such Renner is giving us the hard shill. Kill The Messenger is opening in a crowded October dominated by a lot of flashy titles like Gone Girl and Fury, so he’s got to hustle to draw attention to his movie. Full Story
It was announced earlier this year that Gwyneth Paltrow was collaborating with Blo. It’s a hair bar. The link for more information is below. Earlier this month, they revealed that they would be releasing a new lookbook of Blo signature styles. Stylist David Babali and Gwyneth created the vision together and they brought on an illustrator, Megan Hess, who’s had experience drawing for Chanel, Dior, etc. Full Story
A quick programming note: there was a major delay on the subway this morning and I had that appointment at the eye clinic (I’m a good candidate for laser eye surgery) and so I’m just trying to catch up between preparing for The Social which goes live in a couple of hours. Going to hit you up with a few quick posts and photos and then focus on heavier analysis – including George Clooney’s wedding details – later on this afternoon. Full Story
His attraction for her is understandable. Her attraction for him? Not all that clear, really. Unless size really does matter? For me, no. Size can be uncomfortable. For her, clearly a selling feature. Because she's been going around telling her friends about it. And her nickname for him, which she hasn't been shy about sharing, is "Monster Cock". Full Story

George Clooney’s wedding ended up being more of a spectacle than Beyonce’s and Beyonce is the queen of spectacle. Things you thought you’d never say…
Things that happened in 2014:
George Clooney got married.
Brad Pitt got married.
Kanye West got married.
When we check back with all three in five years, what will be the update? God I wish I had a time machine. If I had a time machine I’d check in with them in 2019 and I’d also fast forward to two weeks from now because I’m a chicken sh-t.
There’s a mole I’ve had on my upper lip, right where the bows meet. Over the last couple of years, a cyst has grown under it. And it won’t stop growing. I’m attaching a picture. From some angles, it looks like a pimple. Read Full Intro
Tom Cruise is working Mission: Impossible 5 in London. No breaks on the weekends, I guess, as he was seen on set yesterday double-fisting a Blackberry and an iPhone/Pod. Me too! So here’s what I was thinking today. List the top movies – universally considered to be Top Movie Stars, male: Denzel Washington, married Will Smith, married Robert Downey Jr, married Brad Pitt, married George Clooney, married – GEORGE CLOONEY IS MARRIED Johnny Depp, engaged Tom Cruise… Tom Cruise…? Single man standing. Full Story

I suppose that’s the other mystery, apart from the dress. Maybe not anymore? A few European media outlets are reporting that Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney are heading to Marrakesh for their honeymoon. A Moroccan honeymoon? It’s so Mimi! You think they’re taking us there too? Are we invited on the honeymoon? Am attaching more shots today of the two of them making it legal. Full Story

I like to pretend that my Gwyneth and I share a birthday, even though we were born a year and a day apart. Mine is September 26, hers is September 27. Whatever. We all fool ourselves in different ways. On Saturday, there was a party to celebrate. Many of G’s celebrity friends were there including Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy (an actress-rocker couple that’s still intact), Nicole Richie who came with Rashida Jones, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer, Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson, and also… Chris Martin was seen arriving earlier in the day.
