Mimi’s tits weren’t pouring out of her dress. Like, Michelle actually described it as “demure”. Shocking development. Had to lie down for a while to process it. Because two nights before at the Spirit Awards, Mimi pretty much stuffed herself into a short black number and as a result, we actually couldn’t breathe for her. Full Story

Post By Duana Generally speaking, the Roosevelt is where the media get ready, and then charge across the street to the red carpet. Which means at 2:30 PM, there's an incredible bottleneck for the two (small!) elevators because of course everyone is getting ready on every floor and heading downstairs. Full Story

With the exception of the Brange and Depp, all the heavy hitters are in town for Oscar week. It’s when sh-t gets done. And what would a high profile week be without the presence of the GMD reminding us that he’s still relevant? Tom Cruise spoke last night at the 5th Annual Oscar Wilde: Honoring The Irish In Film event, riding up on his bike, all manly mans in his biker jacket, delivering his remarks with trademark intensity and jaw-clenching emphasis. Full Story

We’re at the end now. There are several names I can’t get to. The list was just too long, one of the most impressive party turnouts in recent memory. And what exactly makes this impressive? Well, any time Madonna shows up it’s never, ever a bust. Soho House West Hollywood is situated on the top 2 floors of an office tower on Sunset featuring a wraparound glass terrace and a huge patio with a pond on one end. Full Story

Only caught a quick glimpse of Natalie Portman and her new man. She is SO small. And that skirt is shorter than you think. The outfit also looks better than it photographs. Portman was having a word with Carey Mulligan. It was all I could do not to have a Sapphic meltdown all over the grand piano. Mulligan stayed close to Maggie Gyllenhaal most of the time, with Peter Sarsgaard coming in and out of their little area. Full Story

If you missed the first 2 parts, please scroll down. Dan and I spent a lot of time marvelling at Jason Bateman, wondering what kind of elixir he must be drinking to look so eternally young. I mean it’s astonishing. He is so handsome and he’s working a nice tan and he doesn’t look leathery and there’s still a boyishness about him that’s totally adorable. Full Story

If you missed the first part, please scroll down. Seems like Kelly Osbourne is Dave LaChapelle's new muse. Well...she's skinny now, right? Kelly had her hair done Marilyn Monroe styles, in a bedazzled silver teacup dress, like Balenciaga 2 yrs ago. Kelly is thin, small, and shy. Didn't seem entirely comfortable, almost as though she was asking herself how she got here. Full Story

There's a lot to say. And I'm shooting at the Kodak right now so blogging on my blackberry. Don't want you to wait so long for me to write so am splitting last night's observations into several posts. Photos will come later when the agency sends to me. For now we're using file shots. Full Story

Hamm & Spittle

Please. If we’re talking man to man, there’s no question. Spittle, step off for Jon Hamm. Especially being here in LA, it’s a f-cking mystery how they managed to turn that skeeze into a star. A mystery. Even among industry players. Somehow his management team pulled off the ultimate play. Full Story

Johnny Depp at the Alice premiere in London last night. He met the Prince. The coolest motherf-cking sh-t ever. In other Johnny news, Shane MacGowan recruited him for a recording in support of Haiti earthquake relief along with some other cool motherf-ckers. Like Nick Cave. And CHRISSIE HYNDE! So... Full Story

Marc Jacobs said recently that he was done with celebrities at his shows. It used to be that Marc’s shows offered the best front rows. Now that distinction appears to be taken over by Burberry Prorsum. In London today, this is the best front row of all the shows, UK this week and NYC last. NYC in fact was a little low on star factor. Full Story
