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

SAG Best Body: Kate Winslet

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 26, 2009 06:07:39 January 26, 2009 06:07:39

It’s a real woman’s body, right? Especially in this dress. Authentic breasts, the presence of hips – HIPS! – and curves and an ass and she’s fit, but she eats too, and while there may or may not be some Spanx activation, at the same time you also know she’s not a double user like Beyonce, who sucks in that sh-t with two pairs on the regular and sometimes, they say, even three. Full Story

The Young Victoria at Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 19, 2009 15:32:57 January 19, 2009 15:32:57

LOVE Emily Blunt. Been waiting forever to see her as the Young Victoria, a film about the early years of Queen Victoria’s long reign. Finally the trailer has been released and it looks very promising. Or maybe I’m not entirely objective. Am always good for an English period piece. Sigh. The trailer will have to do for now. Full Story

Girlcrush at Sundance

This one is for Emily … because it’s been a while. My girlcrush and Emily’s life crush Kristen Stewart at Sundance today. She’s there to promote Adventureland – teen comedy about first summer love but before you dismiss it, four reasons why you might want to reconsider: - Directed by the same dude who helmed Superbad- Takes place in the 80s- Kristin Wiig is in it- Won’t make you hate yourself the way Twilight did Looks adorable. Full Story

Hamm & Tina

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 15, 2009 15:06:00 January 15, 2009 15:06:00

Last week’s episode of 30 Rock nearly killed me. Why aren’t more people watching this show? Oh right, because it’s up against the ass and balls, of the nasty variety, that has become Grey’s Anatomy. Still…Tina has a loyal following. And she’s a winner. She wins everything. Full Story

Le Karl and the recession

He opens his mouth and amazingness flies out on Chanel tweed wings. He never disappoints. He doesn’t fail us. Which is why, for reals, Karl Lagerfeld needs his own reality tv show. So as you know, because it’s beaten over our heads every day, the global economy is in the sh-ts. Shockingly enough, even the luxury goods business has taken a hit and a new article in the International Herald Tribune examines the effect of the financial slump on style-obsessed France as the French, in typical French fashion, have taken the current crisis and turned it into a treatise on morality worthy of Moliere himself. Full Story

Globes Best Homey: Kate Winslet

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2009 07:50:00 January 12, 2009 07:50:00

Leo calls her his homey. Kate Winslet is everyone’s homey. Well, except maybe Angelina Jolie. Heh. In all fairness, though it doesn’t matter because you hate the Jolie more than anyone else and that’s all you can see… Kate actually COMPLETELY FORGOT to mention Anne Hathaway. Like TOTALLY BLANKED. Full Story

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

Best of 2008: Marion Cotillard wins Oscar

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 22, 2008 18:55:25 December 22, 2008 18:55:25

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 17, 2008 14:42:00 December 17, 2008 14:42:00

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
