The Private Lives of Pippa Lee premiered at TIFF last night. I was assigned to the cover the carpet for etalk and when Rebecca Miller arrived, it was like Robert Pattinson for me. No one but Rebecca Miller could wear what she wore. I know you think it’s weird, I know you think it’s not something Jennifer Aniston would wear and therefore not acceptable. Full Story

Many of you have been eager for news about Drew Barrymore and Whip It at TIFF. Drew and the cast attended the press conference yesterday and her reception here in Toronto has been rock star-like, surprising to many of us who had no idea, even though Drew is most definitely an A+ name, that she inspired that kind of … frenzy. Full Story

One of the coveted seats at New York Fashion Week was for Alexander Wang. And our girl Rachel McAdams not only sat in the front row, she sat in the front row next to The Anna. Anna Wintour actually took her sunglasses off and smiled too. These are not coincidental gestures. In the world of fashion, these seating assignments always mean something… And some are already speculating Full Story

Gwen Stefani at NY Fashion Week. Last night Anna Wintour attended a party in her honour. Today it was the runway. Want the jacket, want the bag, want the shoes, want the pants. Also want how she wears the pants. Why can’t I wear my pants like that? Duana bought a L.A.M.B. bag in LA last year and she has pretty much used it exclusively since. Full Story

Emily Blunt at LAX yesterday out of Los Angeles and you can see the engagement ring presented to her by, of course, her fiancé (because it sounds so much better when someone else says that word) John Krasinski. Love her travel style. Cute sweater. Emily has been back and forth between New York and LA working with Matt Damon in NYC, flying back to LA for down time while Damon’s in Europe promoting The Informant! Her film The Young Victoria is closing TIFF so she’ll also be in Toronto at the end of the festival though it’s doubtful that John will come with. Full Story

Now here’s a woman who hasn’t invited Ebola Hilton onto her show for a guest appearance. Tina Fey once called Ebola a “piece of sh-t”. Tina is everything to be admired and respected in a woman in entertainment. If Tina Fey publicly called that disease a piece of sh-t, it IS a piece of sh-t. Full Story

As an onscreen couple. I wrote the other day that I found it hard to imagine. Here are some photos to help with that – shooting Letters to Juliet in Soho today. There is something very endearing about the fact that I can see her panty line. I love that she’s not straddling a string in costume. Full Story

For Cate Blanchett. And worship. Cate and her husband Andrew Upton attended an Audi event today in Sydney. She is, as usual, f-cking perfect. Love everything. Including the fact that she’s a working mother of 3, balancing a hot Hollywood career, codirecting a theatre company, and doesn’t martyr herself in every magazine article about being Superwoman. Full Story

A rare Emily Blunt sighting at LAX yesterday – sexy and cute all at the same time. Am a big fan. Emily’s The Young Victoria which was released several months ago in the UK is finally opening in North America on November 13th. The Young Victoria will also close the Toronto International Film Festival with both Emily and co-star Rupert Friend confirmed to attend. Full Story

She still has a year to go but it’s hard to believe Kristen Stewart and Hayden Panettiere are only 12 months apart. One seems to be well into her 30s. The other is content at 19, embracing 19, dressing the way a 19 year old can – with imagination, with creativity, with originality… Kristen Stewart isn’t a fashion plate every day. Full Story

That f-cking Shelf Ass had the temerity to put herself in the same sentence with Meryl Streep in an interview. Meryl Streep is too classy to care. But to quote Valentino: I would eat them! Meryl was in LA last night with Amy Adams for the premiere of Julie & Julia in which she plays Julia Child, with the accent and the quirky mannerisms, a third summer in a row that she’s featured at the box office, and that’s Meryl Streep – just turned 60 and, as she’s said recently, suddenly a box office draw. Full Story
