Dear Gossips,

LOVE New York! Arrived late last night, back briefly in Vancouver before heading to Edmonton this afternoon – a few quick lingering thoughts re: Costume Gala etc first…

And had the honour of interviewing the most amazing woman yesterday for eTalk. Her name is Brandusa Niro (no stranger to the fashion cognoscenti out there) editor in chief of The Daily which of course is devoured by every style know-it-all during New York Fashion Week twice a year and editor in chief of the Fashion Mini – like an Us Weekly for the fashion industry, fashion gossip for the fashion insider – now published every month but up to this point sold only in select cities in the US…until now. Available in Canada starting July…love, love, love.

It’s Wednesday, live blogging, check back often for new posts.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Re: Cate Blanchett…yes, I’ve seen the photo printed by the UK tabloids accusing anorexia, and I’ve read your emails blasting me for saying she looked great at the Gala. Believe whatever you want but that photo was taken from a ridiculously bad angle under the most terrible light inside a white tent with every kind of weird glare bouncing from side to side and up and down. Girl is naturally slender anyway and also naturally pretty pale. Because she’s not Jessica Simpson obsessively on a tanning bed! Anyway, at one point, I was standing 5 feet away from her. She was not shockingly thin, she was not deathly thin, no one gasped – as suggested by the rags. There were no “murmurs” of alarm about her frame and everyone I was around seemed to be in agreement with her gorgessity, including members of our crew that consisted of a non-fashion dude cameraman who doesn’t know a Stam from a Birkin - even he was impressed by her beauty. But that’s boring right? Stick thin sells papers, period…but nevermind that last Fall she signed onto a film called Cancer Vixen based on Marisa Acocella Marchetto"s real life battle with the disease. By the way – did you know that Christian Bale lost 65 pounds for a movie called The Machinist and no one lost their sh-t? Sorry, I digress. All I’m saying is give her some credit. It’s CATE BLANCHETT and not some learning impaired Hollywood starlet battling the Hollywood standard. You think the formidable Cate Blanchett would succumb to vain starvation? Please.

Dear Gossips,

The Oscars are the Oscars – no equal in terms of prestige. But not everyone goes to the Oscars. Not everyone is invited. Not everyone has the opportunity to represent an Oscar-calibre film.

But the Costume Institute Gala… the Costume Institute Gala is another beast entirely.

Thanks to your visits and your support of this site, I have been fortunate to cover the Oscars, the Junos, and the Toronto International Film Festival on behalf of eTalk and I’m telling you, in terms of star power and shameless amusement, none compare to the Costume Institute Gala…simply because it’s just so.well.attended. Like seriously… they ALL show up!

When you get to these events, members of the media receive what’s called a “Tip Sheet” – a list of expected attendees just as a heads up of who to look out for. More often than not, the tip sheet is a Wish List. They’ve been invited, but there’s never any guarantee that they’ll come. And 9 out of 10 times, the tip sheet comes up woefully short.

But the Tip Sheet at the Costume Institute Gala ran 3 pages long FRONT AND BACK. That’s 30 names per side, almost six full sides. So before it all kicked off, our crew was in the holding area picking off the best bets, salivating over the prospect of a certain arrival, almost sure that we’d be sorely disappointed. And then they came. They ALL came. A clusterf-ck of A List strutting, posing, sauntering down the carpet. THEY ALL CAME. One after another, car after car dropping off a bigger name than before. Yes… I lost my sh-t.

And course… Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan came last. All details below, including smutty observations and fashion commentary.

First post will appear further down, so if you want to start at the beginning, start at the bottom, and don’t forget to click “view more”! The column today is over 5,000 words!

PPS. I’m sorry if your favourite star isn’t included – as I’ve mentioned, EVERYONE showed up. Too many to count!

PPS. The world never ceases to amaze. Can you believe Paris Hilton actually has a fan? A fan willing to issue death threats in her defence? More on that later.

My first time with Jessica Simpson – it was the highlight of the night. She arrived second to last, just ahead of Lindsay Lohan. But first… what the f&ck is Cavalli thinking? He designs for Victoria Beckham, if I were her I’d cut that sh-t off. After all, why associate with the man responsible for this??? For this atrocity??? Is there any other word??? But still… I can’t complain. Full Story

The BitchBeating Fan goes missing

It’s been a long, long time since we’ve seen our old friend – the one ubiquitous fan that adorned Le Karl’s hand. That trademark accessory used to snap his disapproval, his bitchbeating weapon against the most audacious of style transgressors. Too bad the Bitchbeating Fan was absent last night…because I would have loved to see Karl Lagerfeld use it on Jessica Simpson. Full Story

The theme was honouring Poiret – the 20s are back, metallic is in full rage. Some did it well, others threw up all over themselves. But as suggested by my producer the lovely Lara, I’d be remiss if I didn’t describe what we’ve now dubbed Anatomy of a Red Carpet. Because seeing the photos is one thing, but watching how they achieve the photos is more fascinating that you can imagine. Full Story

Tranny & the Pussycats

Jessica Simpson in Vegas for the 2nd anniversary of the Pussycat Dolls Lounge. As you can see, Tranny factor is in full effect as is her full blown skank. How else can you describe the expression on her face while seated next to Mario Lopez? Some of you say I’m too harsh on her, that just because she has big tits and shows them off doesn’t mean that she’s asking to spend most of her life with it shoved in her mouth, workin’ on her knees. Full Story

Tranny Why Bother?

Why bother spending hours on makeup, hours on a new weave, squeezing those tits into the tightest dress ever…when at the end of the night, every night, she’ll end up where she started?” Bent over or on her knees… I mean, isn’t that the purpose of dressing like this? Isn’t that the only reason why Jessica Simpson looks like Jessica Simpson? To be fondled and played with and pissed on… and pissed on some more? Look at that expression. Full Story

Robin Wright – love. Juliette Binoche – love. Jude Law… Well, two out of three ain’t bad. Actually, truth to be told, he actually didn’t make me nauseous in this one. And his clothes are beautiful. And he really is so pretty. So very pretty. As you probably know, Breaking & Entering came and went at the box office, which is unfortunate. Full Story

Help her. Vanessa Minnillo – SO beautiful, SO lovely, SO brilliantly maneuvered her way into co-habitation with Nick Lachey, but the girl can’t shake the pageant fashion. Or the assy fashion. Check her out last night at a charity benefit wearing something…gasp!!!... that Jessica Simpson would wear. Full Story

Trend Whore vs The Chubb

Who doesn’t like fashion? Staying up to date, rolling with the latest styles and trends and being in the “style” know … we all do it. But here’s the conundrum: how do you balance Trendy with Vanity? Example: High Waist is back. Works only for the long and lean and definitely NOT on Jessica Simpson. Full Story

All present but for Scary who is in America fighting with her baby daddy Eddie Murphy. But Ginger, Baby, Sporty, and of course Posh were all there, in honour of Bluebell’s christening. And contrary to popular opinion - LOVE the name Bluebell. Blue for short, am all over it. And she’s gorgeous, non? That rosebud mouth, not quite as large as The Chosen One Shiloh’s, but prominent still, and so pretty and fair, just like lovely mum Geri who has never been so fetching and fit… love, love, love. Full Story
