How many Academy Award–winning movie stars succeed in maintaining a stable, enduring marriage with a professional colleague while building such a stellar career, not to mention raising children away from the paparazzi and keeping everyone’s ups and downs out of the headlines? – Vanity Fair February 2009 Who else? It’s a gushing article about the incomparable Cate Blanchett after which you realise you still don’t know that much about her…and you prefer it that way. Full Story

Everything about her that night. Oh my God her dress. And her hair. Of course her face. Her shock at winning over Julie Christie. Le sigh. I love her so much. And then seeing her in the press room, as she was asked to sing an Edith Piaf song that would express her emotion… Please. Two hundred cynical, tired, bitchy journalists were eating out of her hand back there. Full Story

That is not her boyfriend

UPDATE: see below... That is not her boyfriend. Because her boyfriend is not that cute. And hopefully not a relative. This is my girlcrush Kristen Stewart last night leaving a store although it totally looks like a gifting suite. Not sure who the dude is but she was also with her bestie and Twilight’s Nikki Reed. Full Story

Page Six is reporting that Leighton Meester is engaged to her boyfriend Sebastien Stan. Something about a Facebook profile. Is Facebook considered a “source” now? Anyway, his publicist has already denied it to Us Weekly Full Story

Kate Winslet in London yesterday at a private screening of The Reader for which she just received a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe nomination. As opposed to the overbronzed overblonde Hollywood divorcee clone Kate from last week, this is the Kate I know and love. The one Halle Berry said is always naked sitting on a toilet in a movie. Full Story

There she is – one of our first looks at Rachel McAdams on the set of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. Not exactly loving the hair but that’s how they wore it then, right? Also attaching photos of newly nominated Robert Downey Jr, capping off his remarkable comeback year with an appearance at the Globes in January and looking ahead of course to more as RDJ’s The Soloist is slated for release in 2009, said to be yet another tour de force. Full Story

Actually, yes. As far as accessories are concerned. Nicole has launched a jewellery line called House of Harlow 1960, obviously after baby daughter Harlow Winter. The pieces are being sold at and the prices are not backbreaking. In fact, there are earrings available for under $30. Cute earrings too. Full Story

A bell and a toga

Cate and Tilda. Tried desperately to find one of them together but gave up after 5 minutes. My heart would have exploded anyway. Love them both so much. Cate wore McQueen in a bell shape with some kind of extraneous nylon tube underneath which could have been disastrous on anyone else but… it’s Cate Blanchett. Full Story

Over and over again, can’t get enough of Kristen Stewart. Am also all over this dress. Don’t care if it’s similar to every dress she’s worn so far on tour. Look at her “I’m so weird and awkward and I don’t want to be here” expression. She means it too. Full Story

Emily Blunt is free from that cheese dick Michael Buble. He told People that he’d always love her and that he’s happy she’s found a new man. As you know, she’s apparently now dating John Krasinski. Full Story

Meryl Streep last night at the premiere of Doubt, still dressed in character perhaps as Sister Aloysius, said to be yet another slamdunk Oscar nominated performance. Have you seen or read Doubt? What makes me worship her even more is her defence of Sister Aloysius. And how far she’s willing to go artistically in that defence. Full Story
