I’m sure I’ll hear it from you on this one. But remember here that we’re talking about Cate Blanchett. Cate Blanchett doesn’t make style decisions with an eye to what someone like, say, Reese Witherspoon would wear on a carpet. In fact, she’d look at something that Reese Witherspoon would wear on a carpet and say “absolutely not”. Full Story

I haven’t talked to Sasha today yet because she’s busy producing the etalk Grammy fashion special but if I had to guess, she’d probably be naming Florence Welch as her Best Dressed at the Grammys. Sasha, as you know from her style column, is all about kaftans and hippies and gypsy wisps. Full Story

Many of you weren’t feeling her as a blonde. Emma Stone’s appearance at the BAFTAs should take care of that? Perhaps she’s softened it a little. Whatever it is, it’s amazing and it pops and I love that she’s into so much colour right now (remember the peachness at the Globes Full Story

BAFTA one shoulder: Annette Bening & Emma Watson

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Two actresses – one a veteran, in the third act of her career, the other an ingénue, perhaps trying to terminate the first act of her career to begin a long, long second act that will see her emerge from underneath the heavy weight of a beloved literary character to embody a new roster of characters that will truly test her talent. Full Story

Tina Fey not in black! Tina Fey not in navy! Tina Fey not in grey! Tina Fey in RED! So good, right? Unless invited to present at the Oscars, the SAGs are the end of the awards show road for those who work primarily in television. Tina decided to go out with some flair. And why not? February Sweeps are coming up. Full Story

Best SAG Body: Sofia Vergara

I’m actually not sure how a body like hers is mathematically possible. Between the size of her breasts and the smallness of her waist, it’s a goddamn mindf-ck. No complaint here. Especially not when she starts talking. I can’t find the video online yet. But she was, as usual, solid gold during her interview with E! When asked what she liked least about herself, Sofia Vergara replied:"I wisha 2b an A cup sun-tines to wear the no bra. Full Story

Ginge without fillers

Julianne Moore did not receive an Oscar nomination this week for her great work in The Kids Are All Right. Another ginge, Nicole Kidman, took that spot. It’s a motherf-cker indeed that Julianne, so brilliant, still doesn’t have one. Just like it is the case for Annette Bening. And chances are, that will continue if Natalie Portman persists being Natalie Portman. Full Story

What Louis thinks of Jesse

Check out little Louis’s expression here. He’s probably just grumpy after a nap. But I like to think he’s sending a message to that f-cking dickhead who almost became his dad. Sandy and Louis left her place in New York today and were swarmed by the paps. But this, as noted earlier, is her way, non? You show them that they can’t beat you. Full Story

Best Globe Colour: Kyra Sedgwick

Written by Duana Kyra Sedgwick – what is not to love? She’s that particular type of woman – if Hollywood is high school, and let’s say for the sake of argument that that particular messed up sentiment is true – she’s the girl who’s always invited to the party, often stays in the background the whole time. Full Story

Is Emma next?

I read about this item just at the start of the holiday and wanted to hold on it because people are in and out during that time and, well, we need all the energy we can get, collectively, to will this not to happen. Harvey Weinstein was in London and happened to see some footage of Emma Watson (in a supporting role) in a new movie called My Week With Marilyn, headlined by Michelle Williams. Full Story

Kate Winslet: wrapping up 2010

This year she announced the end of her marriage to Sam Mendes. She then hooked up shortly after with a hot British model. They broke up in the fall. Also, many of you think she’s been working on her face. So here she is in London today, wrapping up her year, photographed after lunch with a “mystery young man”. Full Story
