Oscar cheap tacky TV: Melissa George

Another case of who-invited-you-and-what-is-your-name. I don’t know…apparently she’s on Grey’s Anatomy now? Yes, this is a television show. So how did Melissa George score a ticket? Oh right. Disney. ABC. Grey’s. Ugh. It was embarrassing watching her. Embarrassing looking at her dress. Full Story

Best Oscar Tilda: Tilda Swinton

Here’s the thing – you probably hate this. But you’re not Tilda Swinton. Tilda Swinton isn’t a pretty strapless gown kind of girl. Actually, Tilda is not a girl period. Tilda is a woman. Her own woman. And she dresses for herself. And it’s not mainstream, it’s not conventional, it’s sometimes not even attractive… but it’s always, always original. Full Story

Oscar Rerun: Heidi Klum

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Why does Heidi Klum go to the Oscars? Don’t understand why she’s invited year after year. Nothing against her but there’s just no sense to it. None. And didn’t she wear almost the same thing last time? It was red, and kinda origami-ish, and if not for the hair, could you tell it apart? Not really. Full Story

They said they would shake things up. Well, they shook up some parts, but it still ended up being too long. And, more importantly, FEELING too long. The entire middle section was Benjamin Button. So there is no way Danny Glover stayed awake. None. Hugh Jackman? If I’m honest, there were moments I was a little embarrassed for him. Full Story

Best Supporting Actor and Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards happening right now in Santa Monica: James Franco for Milk and Penelope Cruz for Vicky Christina Barcelona. Yes! Here’s James during arrivals – not sure who he’s with. Does he have a girl? Is she his girl? If so, am sad. Full Story

All three, at the same event, looking gorgeous! Here they are Kate Winslet, my Marion Cotillard, and Freida Pinto last night at the US Ireland Alliance Pre-Oscar Gala Awards Ceremony. Cute story about Marion from a couple of months ago the first time met Kate. She was, like, overcome. Because she’s such a big fan. Full Story

Posh as it grows

Tired of getting out-thinned by Lindsay Lohan lately, Victoria Beckham showed up at the Armani store opening in New York last night with a retaliatory skinny salvo! Who dares challenge her starvation throne? As you can see, she is reclaiming her rightful spot at the top of the emaciated mountain. As you can also see, Posh’s hair is growing ever so slowly, evolving into a shaggier version of her pert little pixie…and I love it so much. Full Story

So much gorgessity! Oh yeah, and him

Last night at the NAACP Image Awards – a parade of gorgessity in attendance led, obviously, by Halle Berry. Seriously, not one bad angle. I have been looking across 5 photo agencies of pictures from last night. Couldn’t find a single image in which she looks mortal. It’s crazy how beautiful she is. Full Story

Grammy Boy Hair: John Mayer & Guy Berryman

February 9, 2009 12:12:20 Posted at February 9, 2009 12:12:20
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Boys with short hair! Guy Berryman is the hottest Coldplay. He’s wee, but he’s gorgeous. And he looked great in pink! Guy’s hair is super short right now. Love. Also…much prefer John Mayer short and unpuffy. He’s a great looking guy when he has good hair. And when he’s a music geek and humble and not sh-tting from his mouth. Full Story

Best Grammy Hair: Jennifer Hudson

February 9, 2009 08:50:29 Posted at February 9, 2009 08:50:29
Lainey Posted by Lainey

OK so the best hair shots of JHud are actually from Saturday night at the Clive Davis Party. But how can you deny this hair? If I could pull off this hair, I totally would. But my Chinese people hair won’t go like this without an hour of work every day and I don’t have the time. I also don’t have time for what Jennifer chose for the red carpet at the Grammys proper: a giant bib. Full Story

Worst Grammy Hair: Paula Abdul

February 9, 2009 08:36:20 Posted at February 9, 2009 08:36:20
Lainey Posted by Lainey

She could qualify for worst everything actually but we’ll spread the hate around and focus, for now, on the 6 story apartment building attached to her head – a flagrant violation of the laws of proportion, if such a thing exists. And if it doesn’t, it should. The problem is that the updo is the same size as her face, and since she’s only, like, 5 feet tall, it’s also almost the same size as her body. Full Story

BAFTA Worst Hair: Penelope Cruz

Like, this fringe is balls. Hate it. Also why is she wearing the same dress over and over again? Black, mermaid, I mean there’s saving up and there’s just being lazy. Thrilled that Pene won Best Supporting Actress because she really was on fire in Vicky Cristina, but this doesn’t absolve her from the assness of these geisha bangs. Full Story

Am planning on wearing hair up for Oscars. Last two years it’s been ponytails – one low, one high. This time I want it all back, off my neck, like a goddess updo but not bridey, and definitely not ballet. So hard to explain. Ugh. And I can’t find a photo. Can’t decide on the style. Full Story
