At the du Cap

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 22, 2007 00:00:00 May 22, 2007 00:00:00

Last night, having cocktails at Hotel du Cap on terrace, an Oceans 13 dinner was going on next door at Eden Roc without Brad and Angelina who were at The Might Heart gala. But George Clooney, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon with Luciana, Andy Garcia, the super rich producers I’m too hung over to name… all of them present, and all of them spilled over back to the du Cap bar just after midnight. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The amazing thing about Cannes is how random it is. There are the mega-celebrities, there are the international superstars – having finally seen Aishwarya Rai in person…now I totally get it. Woman is beyond beautiful.

But then there’s Billy Zane. Billy who? Exactly. Only thing I can recall about Billy Zane without Google is that he was the bad guy in Titanic…and if you have to be Googled to be remembered, do you really count? Especially if you’re a total cheeseball?

And then there’s that Victoria Silvstedt woman – some kind of pin up doll I would have never known but for a pappy video taken of her several months ago getting, um, culinarily sampled in the nether regions by an old rich fart. Next thing you know, she shows up last night at the Opening Ceremony during the VIP portion of the arrivals… WTF?

But enough of the D List. There were models and billionaires everywhere, there were actors everywhere, and then there was Juliette Binoche.

There are no words for Juliette Binoche. An Oscar for The English Patient, yes, but for me it will always be The Unbearable Lightness of Being and of course: It’s your favourite. Did you love Chocolat?

Wednesday – posting between screenings and shoots. Seinfeld today! Check back often, scroll down for a late post you may have missed...

Yours in gossip,

PS. Over two weeks in Cannes requires a lot of clothing. My thanks and love to Heather at Kiss & Makeup for styling me at the last minute! Kiss & Makeup will be adding apparel to the growing list of goodies at the apothecary. Kiss & Makeup Apparel launches soon and they will have the line that everyone wants: Alice + Olivia. I’m telling you, if you haven’t already, try the pants. The pants fit like no other…even for someone carrying around 12 pounds of not smoking, the pants rock ass. Also my new obsession – my Cynthia Vincent shoes, see attached below, available now at Kiss & Makeup. Will wear these for Jakey G and Daniel Craig in a few days. Hopefully both at the same time.

Dear Gossips,

Don’t you wish all celebrities would scrap the way Lily Allen and Cheryl Tweedy have been scrapping? Totally bad form of course but refreshing too – celebrities who actually say what they think. And get catty without apology. Love it.

Cannes begins today – will be heading down to the Palais to cover the opening ceremony and My Blueberry Nights. My people are VERY well represented this year – first Chinese director in history to kick off the festival and the inimitable Maggie Cheung as a member of the jury…am proud.

Am also undecided about what to wear. It’s between 2 black dresses – should I save the shorter one for Daniel Craig instead of wasting it on Jude Law? Yes I think so…

Tuesday, posting on the fly between shoots, check back often for new posts, and scroll down for late posts from yesterday. Am trying to keep up with North America time.

Yours in gossip,

Dear Gossips,

French women are so ridiculously beautiful and chic – it’s a form of entertainment just watching them. Dylan calls them Weapons of Ass Destruction… we’ve been ogling for 2 straight days along the Croisette in Cannes – is that pervy?

Festival madness is officially upon us. Tomorrow it’s My Blueberry Nights: Norah Jones’s much anticipated feature film debut. The movie will be presented right after the opening ceremony – Norah and Jude Law and director Wong Kar Wai will be walking the carpet. And if you’ve seen In the Mood for Love, you are probably well aware of his work…which is why this one is the one to watch. Wong’s first English language picture has everyone talking. Will keep you posted.

Went through my press package today – turns out Colin Firth is scheduled to attend next week in support of his latest St Trinian’s. Hello Quiver. More quiver also in the form of Bond himself, Daniel Craig for The Golden Compass. A chance to be within striking distance of a member of my Freebie Five? Goddess help my loins.

All the action from Cannes – and Hollywood too! - stay tuned.

Yours in gossip,

PS. Good luck to Lorraine who is getting married in 10 days. Congratulations! I know it’s been a rough go but hang in there and all the best!

Salma’s Dude and Daniel Craig

Call me Cruise and bat-sh-t blind… but in person? Francois-Henri Pinault, better known as Salma Hayek’s baby daddy, is actually kinda sexy. Like Daniel Craig – ugly sexy. Oozes money and power too...maybe that’s the reason. But I like to think I’m all over it because they were so sweet together, the way he clasped her hand, the way she looked up at him before heading inside the ballroom – not a look of submission but of equality: a comfortable partnership…it was adorable. Full Story

Children of Men Exclusive DVD Giveaway!!!

Two words: Clive Owen. One question: want him? In my ranking of Ugly Hotties, Clive slips in at #2. Behind Daniel Craig and in front of Gerard Butler though that could change after tonight – am seeing 300 – but I doubt it. Not down with the beard. So unless he loses the 1970s French porn vaginal growth that the costume designers have stuck to his face, Gerard stays off the Freebie Five. Full Story

Friday, March 16, 2007 Dear Gossips, I spent the night with Daniel Craig and the Bond DVD. Oh.Holy.Quiveration. Especially the footage of him training in Prague. Something about the way he wears his sweats… between Daniel, Gerard Butler, and Clive Owen, I think I’m STILL on Team 007. Forgive me? Friday – blogging all day, check back often for fresh posts. Have a great weekend! Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. At the VERY least, Friends was only half an hour. And since it became the Rachel Green Fashion Show towards the end anyway, the clothes were always a good distraction. With Grey’s? It’s like there’s nowhere left to hide and the fascination has now become – How Much Worse Can It Possibly Get???

The Daily Quiveration: Gerard Butler

More for you than it is for me. Or least those of you who plead so ardently for Gerry’s inclusion on the Freebie 5. He’s hunky, alright. And talented. And Scottish. The accent is important. And not a famewhore. And sexy enough. And if he’s on yours, I totally get it. But my problem is choosing between him and Clive Owen and Daniel Craig – each unique in his own right but for all intents and purposes, each belongs in the same Rugged-not-Pretty-not-Conventional-but-Quivering-as-all-Hell Category and as such, which one do you single out on a list of only 5? But that’s my problem, not yours. Full Story

Best Bond

I’m sorry…been a little slow on the draw today – still haven’t slept, still wrapping up today’s show for eTalk, and have just been assigned to one more day in LA. Perhaps I’ll run into Orly again at the crack of dawn in the Roosevelt lobby? Anyway, a thousand apologies for the delay in finishing up the Fashion Review, particularly to Susan in Washington who wrote to express how disappointed she was that I haven’t been able to get to it. Full Story

Three Whiskers up close

Quick fashion interruption – thought you’d want to know. Ben and I were waiting to be picked up outside the Roosevelt at 4am for morning talk show interviews. Orlando Bloom rolls in with a wingman or two, heads upstairs, comes back down a few minutes later and an SUV full of giggling girls is idling at valet – you’ll be happy to know he travels in an environmentally friendly SUV. Full Story

Bond at the Oscars

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 9, 2007 12:00:00 February 9, 2007 12:00:00

Many of you have him on your Freebie Five - to me he looks better in a tux than he does in a pair of wet shorts. And chances are…he’ll be wearing a tux on Oscar night. Announced yesterday, Daniel Craig joins Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, and Reese Witherspoon as presenters confirmed so far – pretty high profile to start, with more to follow in the coming days. Full Story
