Minnie Driver at the Opening Ceremony last night – this photo taken from the Daily Mail, same publication that printed the so-called anorexic picture of Cate Blanchett last week. And as in the case with Case, had I not seen Minnie myself, I would be alarmed yes by the size of her waist. But believe it or not, up to you, in person she’s actually nowhere near starvation. Full Story

I Buy What She Sells

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, two of the biggest, if not THE biggest players in Hollywood, and if they all play the game, if it’s a level playing field, it’s undeniable then that when these two bring their A Game, they play it better than anyone else. Angelina on promo for A Mighty Heart – there is some buzz that they are trying to push for an Oscar (although smart money early in the race is on Cate Blanchett for The Golden Age) and in the face of so many conflicting and sometimes malicious reports in the tabloids, Angelina is carefully choosing how to pimp her message… first an interview alongside Mariane Pearl Full Story

Dear Gossips,

LOVE New York! Arrived late last night, back briefly in Vancouver before heading to Edmonton this afternoon – a few quick lingering thoughts re: Costume Gala etc first…

And had the honour of interviewing the most amazing woman yesterday for eTalk. Her name is Brandusa Niro (no stranger to the fashion cognoscenti out there) editor in chief of The Daily which of course is devoured by every style know-it-all during New York Fashion Week twice a year and editor in chief of the Fashion Mini – like an Us Weekly for the fashion industry, fashion gossip for the fashion insider – now published every month but up to this point sold only in select cities in the US…until now. Available in Canada starting July…love, love, love.

It’s Wednesday, live blogging, check back often for new posts.

Yours in gossip,

PS. Re: Cate Blanchett…yes, I’ve seen the photo printed by the UK tabloids accusing anorexia, and I’ve read your emails blasting me for saying she looked great at the Gala. Believe whatever you want but that photo was taken from a ridiculously bad angle under the most terrible light inside a white tent with every kind of weird glare bouncing from side to side and up and down. Girl is naturally slender anyway and also naturally pretty pale. Because she’s not Jessica Simpson obsessively on a tanning bed! Anyway, at one point, I was standing 5 feet away from her. She was not shockingly thin, she was not deathly thin, no one gasped – as suggested by the rags. There were no “murmurs” of alarm about her frame and everyone I was around seemed to be in agreement with her gorgessity, including members of our crew that consisted of a non-fashion dude cameraman who doesn’t know a Stam from a Birkin - even he was impressed by her beauty. But that’s boring right? Stick thin sells papers, period…but nevermind that last Fall she signed onto a film called Cancer Vixen based on Marisa Acocella Marchetto"s real life battle with the disease. By the way – did you know that Christian Bale lost 65 pounds for a movie called The Machinist and no one lost their sh-t? Sorry, I digress. All I’m saying is give her some credit. It’s CATE BLANCHETT and not some learning impaired Hollywood starlet battling the Hollywood standard. You think the formidable Cate Blanchett would succumb to vain starvation? Please.

Dying? Starving? Really?

Cate Blanchett Tuesday night at the Time Magazine event… As you can see, she doesn’t have an eating disorder, nor is she dying, or starving, or emaciated, or frightening. Hate to say it but...told you it was a bad angle photo. Again, in person, at the Gala, she was fine, more than fine – she was lovely. Full Story

The Golden Queen

Have exhausted all the ways to describe the Gala’s co-chair Cate Blanchett but every time, she never ceases to impress. The images may not paint an adequate picture but I promise, this dress up close was a masterpiece. Every strand, every strand of that fringe was like a rope with its own history… as though preserved from an ancient rug and painstakingly cut away to fashion what was fit for a Queen. Full Story

Cate: Will the Golden Age be golden?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 20, 2007 12:00:00 April 20, 2007 12:00:00

Cate Blanchett has an Oscar but not a Best Actress Oscar. But Hilary Swank has TWO??? Bitch… please. Let there be justice then. And if the trailer for the Golden Age is any indication, 2008 will be another year for the Queen. She is magnificent, non? Click here for the trailer, watch her kick some ass. Full Story

Dirty Face and the Big Gold Bow

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 8, 2007 12:00:00 March 8, 2007 12:00:00

Dirty Face is back! Have you missed her? Seriously though… Lindsay Lohan has a serious foundation problem. And that being the case, maybe it really isn’t a good idea to go so blonde? Just a suggestion. Also a suggestion? Inx nay on the large gold bow. Few people can bow, you know. Cate Blanchett, absolutely. Full Story

About Jessica Biel

I’m sorry… I don’t mean to mean. I’m sure she’s lovely. I really do think she has a lovely bum. But…um…like… what’s with the recent overkill? A movie that died at the box office, in which she was hardly remarkable, and weekly photos of her showing off her muscles at the beach, and all of a sudden JT is tapping that ass and Oscar wants a presenter? I’m telling you – it’s the Paris Hilton factor. Full Story

The Daily GirlCrush: Christina Ricci

Wow. All of a sudden it seems, in the last couple of months, all of a sudden she’s rockin’ it to a higher level. Best Dressed for me at the Grammys, still tiny but by all appearances also healthy, and a new glow – some of you suspect surgical assistance yet I think it’s just a young women growing into her own, as illustrated today at the ISAs. Full Story
