Shelfy the bride

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 11:18:56 May 5, 2009 11:18:56

Who got married yesterday? You would think it was Shelf Ass. It was her special day. Let me explain. At every photo agency database it was pretty much the same – two women occupied more pages and image space than any others. The first… Madonna. Obviously. The second. Jessica f-cking Biel. Full Story

Posehard pose-off!

When Victoria Beckham met Renee Zellweger…who posed the hardest? Who posed so hard she need hip replacement surgery? Maybe we need a new poll. Ok, f-ck the Claudia vs Heidi poll. Let’s pit Posh and SnapFace head to head. Big surprise. Snappy’s wearing a strapless dress. It’s the best way to show off some back bones. Full Story

This black dress

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 10:30:00 May 5, 2009 10:30:00

Is f-cking exquisite. It’s Versace. Thematically similar to Shelfy’s dress (more on that later) only far superior. And of course on someone who can wear it. Never was pro-Claudia back in the day. Christy and Linda and Yasmine Ghauri, they did more for me especially on the runway. Over the years though she’s grown on me a little. Full Story

It’s my IT band

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 10:05:51 May 5, 2009 10:05:51

My ass has been aching for weeks. It’s my IT band. Even in a sitting position it’s cramping now. And when I drive. And especially when I sleep. Also, I have chronic neck and shoulder pain. I’m telling you this because I just popped in for quick physio. Physio makes me sleepy and slow. Full Story

Swank sag tits

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 09:44:30 May 5, 2009 09:44:30

That episode of The Office – Hilary Swank, pretty or not? Please. Why is this even a debate? Maybe it’s just me. I don’t like her. I don’t like how she outed her ex husband as an addict in an interview with a dishy magazine. I also don’t understand why she has 2 Oscars. Full Story

Supermodel Cougar

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 09:30:11 May 5, 2009 09:30:11

Fack. This is not Teri Hatcher. Or Kelly Preston in that Maroon 5 video. This is Cindy Crawford. Cindy Crawford, whose husband is being sued for sexual harrassment after years of loud whispers about his philandering ways as George Clooney steps up to defend him. Her dress says it all, non? It's dated and desperate, decidedly cheap. Full Story

A little Edie at the Met

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 09:19:36 May 5, 2009 09:19:36

Just a little. Or maybe I have her on the mind a lot lately after all this Grey Gardens hype which could explain why I opened these photos, saw Kate Moss, and immediately thought well now Little Edie would approve. This is the best costume for the day, you understand. Kate co-chaired the event with her date, Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, and Justin Timberlake. Full Story

Overdress-Off!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 08:47:42 May 5, 2009 08:47:42

Battle of the overdressers: In one corner, the usual. Who else? Kate Beckinsale. F-ck! Does she have to? Can she help herself? Kate Beckinsale does not know the meaning of restraint. None. It’s Marchesa. No wonder I hate it. Besides, Penelope Cruz did this already and better. Her opponent: Elizabeth Hurley in Elie Saab. Full Story

Mother daughter fail

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 08:29:24 May 5, 2009 08:29:24

Those of you who’ve been visiting the site for a while have heard about this already. But it’s one of the best memories of my life. Lara – I miss you. I miss us getting completely rejected by Anna Wintour Full Story

The Madonna Debate

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 08:20:01 May 5, 2009 08:20:01

We spent a significant amount time on this last night over Skype, Michelle and I. Obviously Madonna wasn’t hoping to make the Best Dressed List with this selection. Madonna is many things. But Madonna is not stupid. She wasn’t looking to the MiniVan to gasp with delight over that thing in her head and her muscles popping like flashbulbs. Full Story

Stella’s girls

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 07:53:37 May 5, 2009 07:53:37

They’ve been close for years, now three modern mothers – Kate Hudson, Liv Tyler, Stella McCartney. And all similarly pedigreed. Kate is a regular with Stella at this event. This year, Stella brought two dates and dressed them both, naturally, in her designs. Nothing super spectacular. She in fact went riskier than her muses. Full Story
