Straight hair Marion

At first I thought this was a weave. And I was sad that my Marion would get extensions put in. Then I searched more recent photos and realised her hair has been styled curly for the better part of 3 months. So when straightened, of course it would be longer. Relief. Marion Cotillard is still real. And so f-cking gorgeous. Full Story

"In entertainment people either represent youth, power, or sexuality. Then there's me, carrying normalcy.” – Tina Fey in the new Vogue. Word. Anna Wintour finally picked a winner, following the selection of Jessica Biel last month. It’s one of the best example of women in showbiz. Full Story

The girls and their boys

I’m kicking this off with some gloat. You can skip ahead if you can’t handle it. Back in December I was the first to report exclusively that several of my girls, Carey Mulligan, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and more were shot for the prestigious Hollywood Issue Full Story

Kat Dennings: Nifty in Vancouver

Another girlcrush, another reason why Lindsay Lohan is almost forgettable, Kat Dennings is currently in Vancouver shooting Daydream Nation (written and directed by Canadian Mike Goldbach) with Josh Lucas. She was on set yesterday – gorgeous, luscious, quirky, and determined not be sucked into that generic LA cesspool of vapid, skinny bitches and their vapid skinnier sycophants. Full Story

Tilda Swinton is at Sundance promoting I Am Love. She is Woman. She is Best. She is Coco. As you know, during his final monologue on The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien joked that Tilda would play him on the HBO movie about the late night wars. When asked about this during the junket, Tilda said she was game Full Story

Best SAG: Marion & Diane

Both have the Guillaume Canet connection and they were seated at the Weinstein table. Awkward or no? There was a lot of white at the SAGs. I’m biased, I guess, but no one was better than my Marion Cotillard. The side swept hair, so chic, the short length was perfect, the feathers were sublime, and the way she sweetly applauded everyone so enthusiastically beside DDL in the front row, enchanting. Full Story

This, as noted by my friend Sasha, is kinda figure skating styles. Also an Alexander McQueen. Fitting too because on Saturday night, the US Figure Skating Championships were decided. Christina Gao: there may be a new Michelle Kwan for me next year. If she develops according to plan, this girl will be a champion for a long, long time. Full Story

We missed you on Sunday

Cate Blanchett won the Critics Award as Best Actress for playing Blanche DuBois in the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of A Streetcar Named Desire yesterday. Big surprise. From Sydney to DC to NYC, if you’ve seen her on stage, you know she practically reinvented the role. As reviewed in the NY Times, it’s like seeing Blanche, hearing Blanche, living Blanche for the first time ever. Full Story

Best Last Year: Kate Winslet

My love. Our love. Our Kate. Duana noted on our live blog last night: Tomorrow can you write an article about how Kate knows how to dress down when it's not her turn? With pleasure. These are the girl code moves Victoria Beckham keeps violating. Kate Winslet happily worked the carpet last year. As a nominee. Full Story

Best Globes Makeup: Marion Cotillard
