The Victoria Beckham flagship on Dover Street in London opened today. I’ve attached some photos. They’re saying she wanted it be like an art gallery to showcase not only her clothing but also the architecture. It’s beautiful. And I love that piece of green wall in one of the dressing rooms that she’s posing against. Full Story

It was announced last month that Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai would be released in February – click here for a refresher. And then the trailer came out and, as Sarah pointed out, it made sense why they’d want to bury it there. Mortdecai looks like sh-t. Full Story

It’s an obvious title. But I feel like we have to get obvious here. Because, well, nothing has been subtle about the Amal Alamuddin-George Clooney wedding roll-out. He told us when and where. We know the hotel, we know the designers, we know the officiant. In two days, George will marry Amal in Venice. Full Story

For months now, Taylor Swift has turned the sidewalk outside her NYC apartment into a runway. She decided she wanted to be a style "icon", as we continue to degrade the true definition of that word. Well, it worked. PEOPLE Magazine just named her Best Dressed Of The Year. Evidently walking out of an Anthropologie and wearing the same sh-t Elie Saab designs over and over and over again gets you to the top of the fashion list. Full Story

In advance of The Mindy Project returning for its third season, Mindy Kaling is doing press, including stopping by Howard Stern to talk about how BJ Novak—her Office-mate “Ryan” and also a producer on her show—is the one that got away. As per usual she’s funny, charming, and honest, saying that she was “never more beautiful” after they broke up because she doesn’t eat when she’s sad. Full Story

Hollywood is suddenly obsessed with Hank Williams. It probably has a lot to do with the prolonged fight over the Hank Senior song catalog ending in 2011, or that the Hank Williams Estate, thus resolved, signed a huge licensing deal just last year. At any rate, first there was Tom Hiddleston Full Story

US Weekly reports exclusively that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's baby girl arrived on Friday, September 12. No name has been announced. Which is not surprising. They've never actually confirmed they were expecting in the first place. In fact, when news first broke that she was pregnant, people were still saying (hoping?) that they were no longer together. Full Story

JayZ changed the lyrics to a song in Paris the other night about being pregnant with a second one, or something, and the Carter narrative quickly changed from divorce to baby.

In the previous article, about casting the female lead in the second season of True Detective, given the list of actresses being auditioned, they seem to be looking for someone in her 30s who can go dark. This is why I don’t understand why Mrs Timberlake is on the list. Rosario Dawson? 100%. Full Story

Taylor Swift covers Rolling Stone. It’s the BEST celebrity magazine profile of the year. No question. And by best I mean the most entertaining. The juiciest. GREAT for gossip. I could not get enough. I had to read it twice, back to back, because I didn’t want it to be over. So, if you haven’t already, set aside 10 minutes today and make sure you’re not interrupted. Full Story
