Cate Blanchett: spirit of the 80s

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 15, 2013 20:00:32 August 15, 2013 20:00:32

This is worthy of a punch in the face. Do it now. Look at this Armani ad featuring Cate Blanchett and punch yourself in the face from the gorgessity and the awesome. There’s a distinct 80s vibe about the styling here, non? And the lighting, the tone… It’s a little…Carol Bouquet for Chanel, right? I’ve been complaining about Mr Armani’s stuck-in-the-80s imagination on the runway for a while now. Full Story

Over to you Nicole…and Cate, and Julia, and Sandy

And Kate and Marion and how many others? It was reported yesterday that Meryl Streep will not be contending for Best Actress Oscar this year. Instead, her performance in August: Osage County will be submitted in the supporting category which means that she and Julia Roberts won’t be going head to head against each other but that she will be going head to head on Oprah Winfrey for her role in The Butler. Full Story

All of us here at LaineyGossip have been girlcrushing on Kerry Washington for months, Duana in particular. I should show you some of the emails she sends me: “Kerry said this!” “Kerry dropped a reference in an interview that no one else understand, because they hadn’t read xxwhateverbookxxx. Full Story

VOGUE: JLaw & JLO

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 12, 2013 15:34:07 August 12, 2013 15:34:07

Here’s the Jennifer Lawrence VOGUE cover. It’s the all-important September issue. It’s an understandable choice. Really, who’s had a better year than Jennifer Lawrence? And the interview? Towards the end of the interview, Lawrence’s best friend and assistant, Justine, claims that the “secret” to Lawrence’s charm and perceived unpretentiousness is that she’s not playing the game: “Literally everyone else is playing the game, but she is not. Full Story

Cate Blanchett’s been out a lot this week to promote Blue Jasmine. The style porn has been amazing. I decided to wait and collect all her looks and post them all at once. My favourite, obviously, is the showstopper – the pink Balenciaga Edition. Look at that. It’s incredible. Full Story

Marvel’s dick was definitely the biggest at Comic-Con. But if there was a vote for Most Popular, among geeks and non-geeks, on the male side it was probably Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. On the female side… Please. Jennifer Lawrence. Of course. She had two projects to promote: Catching Fire, obviously, and X-Men which speaks to the extraordinary professional high she’s been riding as the heroine of two franchises each with its own independent fanbases and a good balance too. Full Story

Kerry Washington covers Vanity Fair

Duana Posted by Duana at July 3, 2013 15:59:08 July 3, 2013 15:59:08

Should it be such a big deal? Not necessarily. She’s the star of a huge hit show that’s only getting bigger, she’s had other covers this spring, she’s gorgeous…and it’s been six years since a black woman was on the cover of Vanity Fair, longer since a black woman was on the cover by herself. Full Story

I believe I said on the Tony Awards live-blog that NPH was not truly going to be appreciated for being the renaissance man that he is until he turned 40, with peak appreciation for his awesome, awesome stardom coming when he’s 50. I should start making psychic predictions.  NPH turned 40 on June 15th. Full Story

Emma Watson Calls Out (Ebola) Paris Hilton

Dean Posted by Dean at June 26, 2013 17:21:44 June 26, 2013 17:21:44

(Lainey: as you know, we don’t just call it Paris Hilton on this site. The proper way to refer to it is Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton. I have made those adjustments to Dean’s piece below.) What goes into landing a Teen Vogue cover? Are the politics as fraught and gossiped about as the fight over the cover of American Vogue? I'd guess not, but still, there's definitely a certain status to it. Full Story

Anna Kendrick shoots The Last Five Years

It always seems so effortless for Anna Kendrick. Check out these pictures of her from the Staten Island set of The Last Five Years. Doesn't she make it look easy? I'm kind of afraid to even go to Staten Island (tell me I'm wrong, SI gays?), but Anna Kendrick is carrying the pressure of starring in a major Hollywood musical and working her little retro hipster outfits like she doesn't have a care in the world. Full Story

Rachel McAdams stays the same

It’s what I have always said I love most about Rachel McAdams (and we love her a lot here at LaineyGossip.com) -- Rachel isn’t LA. Rachel works, and then she comes home. She stays in Toronto. And it can get cold in Toronto. It’s not the every day sunny skies of Los Angeles. It’s a pain in the ass to get around when it snows. Full Story
