The last days of her reign

My Marion Cotillard arrived today at LAX in advance of the Oscars on Sunday. No makup. Doesn’t matter. F-ck! I was at LAX just a while ago too! Didn’t see her, different terminal. Balls! As the reigning Best Actress, Marion will likely present to the Best Actor – will it be Sean Penn or Mickey Rourke? She already handed over the honours to Mickey at the BAFTAs…but that was before he willingly infected himself with Ebola. Full Story

BAFTA My Marion

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 9, 2009 06:17:21 February 9, 2009 06:17:21

Last year she presented herself at the BAFTAs in angel winged gorgessity from head to toe and took home a mask. This year, it’s a different Marion. Not her best dress by far (hate it) and her hair looks lank and unwashed… But this is my girl. My girl understands her year has come and gone. Full Story

BAFTA Winslet

The dress is Zac Posen, fit her beautifully. I likey much better than the other black one from the Globes. And her speech was better too. Short, concise, heartfelt… Will it be her last of the season? Or will she have the chance again on Oscar night. She is the favourite going in and what I like about Kate is that there’s no false modesty about this. Full Story

BAFTA Blasé: Meryl Streep

She doesn’t have to. So she doesn’t. But she respects the occasion too even though this outfit is probably 20 years old and recycled from an awards show during the (to borrow from her speech at the Globes for her Adaptation win) Pleistocene era. Meryl Streep at the BAFTAs in sharp contrast to the other mature ladies of the night – Sharon Stone and Goldie Hawn – demonstrated another option for women who are no longer 22. Full Story

Blunt on Victoria, John, and Bond

Girlcrushing. HARD. Emily Blunt, I love her so much. She covers the new Harper’s Bazaar UK – an amazing photo shoot, an even better interview, although she’s reticent to discuss that cheating cheese dick Michael Buble. Our Emily was incapable of rolling low classy for a few minutes. Full Story

I love you all over again

Hate the Gwyneth who’s sickly sweet and MiniVan sucky. Love the Gwyneth who doesn’t give a sh-t that you hate her because she knows that your hate means she still matters. Worship the Gwyneth who believes she’s better than you and looks for every opportunity to prove it. Yesterday I posted the cover of the March issue of UK Elle. Full Story

Amy’s new job!

Short maternity leave. Check out Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones yesterday shooting scenes for Amy’s new pilot for NBC from Greg Daniels, executive producer of The Office. The project still does not have a title but word is Full Story

Olga is not demode

My Olga Kurylenko is in Paris for Fashion Week – at Chanel today and look! Blessed by the Karl himself! Karl seems to be quite pleased by this new Bond girl. But of course not quite as taken as he is by Keira Knightley who is very thin and doesn’t do anything disgusting … like eat food. Full Story

Jolie inspiration

Remember Angelina Jolie’s bitchface at the Critics’ Choice Awards when Anne Hathaway started dithering on stage? Angie is a novice compared to the legendary Sophia Loren. Here in Rome today with Daniel Day-Lewis on the set of Nine – the longest shoot ever!?!? – treating us to a clinic on how to give face. Full Story

Somebody and Nobody

Paris Fashion Week – Christian Dior. Reigning Best Actress and my girl crush Marion Cotillard arrives all subtle gorgessity, the current face of Lady Dior, with the innate French ability to capture a look that suits the moment. She is extraordinary and we must worship her. And look what the D List dragged in. Full Story

Best SAG Reese Witherspoon: Tina Fey

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 26, 2009 06:33:46 January 26, 2009 06:33:46

Two years ago at the Golden Globes, ready to emerge from her divorce, Reese Witherspoon showed up at the Globes wearing a bright yellow strapless cocktail length Nina Ricci in one of the freshest looks of the season. It’s a different colour and obviously not exactly the same, but something about Tina Fey reminded me of Reese last night. Full Story
