Three Whiskers has been my nickname for Orlando Bloom for years. Do a search for “Three Whiskers” on this site. It’ll pull up dozens of articles dating back as far as 2006. He’s just never been able to grow any substantial facial hair. The other day, I saw this shot Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Daily Mail, that paragon of accuracy, is reporting that Justin Bieber will soon be a Calvin Klein underwear model. Well, he’s worked hard enough for it. Supposedly the brand has signed JB to front their next campaign. The photo shoot, according to the Daily Mail, has already happened.

Um.

Calvin Klein juuuuust featured Charlie Hunnam in a fragrance ad for Reveal.

I know fragrance and underwear are different business streams but under one label, how did we get from Charlie Hunnam to Justin Bieber?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Rachel McAdams was at the NY premiere of A Most Wanted Man last night. So that’s why she’s on the cover of ALLURE. I wasn’t sure. There was so little lead-up to this release. Anyway, at some point while she was at the event, she posed with Mick Jagger. Full Story

Today is July 22. It’s also Selena Gomez’s champagne birthday. I love a champagne birthday. Apparently she’s celebrating in Saint Tropez with her new best friend Cara Delevingne. They’re on a massive yacht. Fitting for a champagne birthday, right? And here’s something Taylor Swift just posted on Instagram: No time for girl sh-t on a champagne birthday? Or…is Taylor trying to tell us she’s the bigger one? So far, no birthday messages from Justin Bieber. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon modelled a very cute white laser cut two-piece yesterday while walking around LA. Speaking of Blake Lively, Reese too will soon be launching a lifestyle brand called Draper James. There will be retail stores. The first is expected to open next year…while she’s on an Oscar run? I posted about the first trailer for Wild – Hike, Pray, Love – last week. Full Story

Taylor Kitsch was in Brazil for the World Cup. On Friday it was widely reported that he and Colin Farrell are being considered for the second season of True Detective. It’d be a great career move for both – particularly Kitsch who did well on HBO’s The Normal Heart and could use some television stabilising after a rough attempt at the movies. Full Story

“Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.” – Margaret Mitchell OK but what about what we want? Can we have what we want? What I’ve been wanting for a long time is Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal. Since 2010 – click here Full Story

Rachel McAdams’s wonderful ALLURE cover

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 10, 2014 15:44:03 July 10, 2014 15:44:03

When was the last time Rachel McAdams covered a fashion magazine? Seems like it’s been a while. Unlike Jessica Alba who seems to be on one every other month. Which is why this feels so fresh. And she looks fresh too. Fresh face. So pretty. So natural. So much better than the over-touched images that we’re used to. Full Story

Justin Bieber is in Miami, living large. Or trying to. Yachts, girls, beers… It’s the big boy lifestyle. It goes with his muscles. Did you read the NY Mag article about JB that was posted this week, written by Vanessa Grigoriadis? She’s the one who was supposed to do the Gwyneth Paltrow “take-down” or Vanity Fair last year. Full Story
