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

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

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

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

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
