Empire Awards in London yesterday. Christopher Nolan was honoured. Nolan’s the father of the Dark Knights. And produces the new films, Superman and the upcoming Batman vs Superman. So this is like showing up for the company president. On a side note that I just want to throw out there right now – I received an update recently from a Henry Cavill fan. Full Story

You know what I just said about the McQueen spirit? According to fashion lore, Lee McQueen didn’t want Victoria Beckham at his presentation in 2001 and called her “stupid”. Here’s Posh at the 2001 MOBO Awards:  Full Story

Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr, and Ryan Seacrest were at the American Idol finalists’ party yesterday. People keep talking about the show’s declining ratings but they’re still averaging 10+ million a week. I don’t think that’s an emergency. And that doesn’t mean I’m advocating for its continued existence either. Full Story

They’re saying that Princess Catherine is due in April. No specific date has been revealed, of course, but that would put us at about the one month countdown, right? Here they are, the Cambridges, in London today at Westminster Abbey, attending the Commonwealth Service with Prince Charles and Camilla. Full Story

Blank Space not Style. She’s sticking with the big hit and I understand this, but I just love Style so much and I kind of wanted a tease for what it might look like on tour. And that’s maybe another reason why she stayed with Blank Space. Because you don’t want to give away too much before she kicks that off. Full Story

Again! She sucked at the Grammys. She sucked at the Globes. She sucked….at the Oscars?!? And it’s not like I don’t love it when G goes rogue at the Oscars. I will always defend the time she went rogue in Alexander McQueen all those years ago. Full Story

We had a final rehearsal and sound check for etalk at the Oscars until around noon. I was upstairs on the balcony overlooking the auditorium entrance when Jessica Chastain casually walked down the carpet, with her hood pulled up and a pair of casual pants, no handler, no publicist, just by herself, with her dress hanging off one arm. Full Story

Blake Lively was at the Marchesa presentation last night in New York. She wore Marchesa at her wedding. And there’s the Harvey Weinstein connection. OK but... If you’ve been visiting this site for some time, you know how I feel about Marchesa. They send some janky ass sh-t down the runway. Full Story

It seems like these two are never not together. Gwyneth Paltrow presented. Chris Martin performed. And you can see him I think in the background of one of these shots of her. G, obviously, was there for her “beautiful friend” Beyonce. That’s no accident either. While there were complaints about her presence to introduce B’s performance, you have to know that she would have only been invited on the approval and probable recommendation of Beysus herself. Full Story

Vulture asked a very important question on Twitter last night: Who has more friends, Taylor or Gwyneth? It’s been a year now, right? Since I first started calling Taylor Swift the “Friend Collector”? She’s also, like, the official mascot of music award shows now too. Full Story

Cate Blanchett stepped out in pink silk last night with black sleeves and hem at the AACTA Awards in Sydney. On anyone else… this would be a mess. Easily. Like on someone with sh-tty posture? And a lot less poise? It’s not my favourite Cate fashion moment. But I can appreciate that she can elevate a piece that on anyone else would look suuuuuuper cheap. Full Story

Kate Hudson wore that obvious white Versace dress at the Golden Globes, you remember? Click here for my assessment. Basically… too easy. That’s all this is. You have a good body? Let’s pick a dress to show off how good your body is without any creative design elements. Full Story

You’re here because you love the awards. And you remember. You might not remember what your boss told you five minutes ago, but you remember when Gwyneth wore white Tom Ford to the Oscars. You remember Cate Blanchett’s butterflies by Galliano. You can recall, instantly, everything that Lupita wore last year and when – the red caped Lauren at the Globes, the turquoise beading at the SAGs, the pale blue Prada for the Academy. Full Story
