Will & Kate & the youth

The final stop on the first day of the Royal Tour in Canada was a bbq reception to celebrate youth. Both William and Catherine made a wardrobe change – her third of the day. This time it was an Issa wrap dress with a bird pattern, sheer stockings, and slingback wedges. I can’t say I love anything about this ensemble. Full Story

So far. When Princess Catherine got on the plane for Canada this morning from London, she was wearing a Smythe blazer, Canadian brand. When she arrived in Ottawa she wore Erdem, another Canadian designer. So far she’s pimping out the Maple Leaf. Word up. Needless to say, Smythe is probably now already sold out of that jacket. Full Story

When you go into the database of a photo agency, the pictures come up slightly bigger than thumbnail size. I also have bad eyes so often I either can’t make out who it is at first glance or I get it completely wrong. Today I went into the agency and took a quick look at these shots and wondered to myself how I could have possibly missed the news that Kristen Stewart is dating Scott Speedman. Full Story

Doubtful...or possible? The Royal Couple will be in Quebec, stopping for a short few hours in Montreal on July 2nd. They’ll visit with young cancer patients at Saint-Justine Hospital and then hang out with some novice chefs at a cooking class. Those kids have the honour of serving dinner to Will and Kate that night. Full Story

Bollywood North

Bollywood took over Toronto this weekend for the International Indian Film Academy Awards with some of the biggest Bollywood stars in attendance. It’s the first time in the history of the event that it’s taken place in North America. This is no small deal. 16,000 tickets sold out in a matter of minutes. Full Story

Rachel rides Rocket & Biel doesn’t pull the card

You have heard me go on and on about Rachel McAdams’s anti-celebrity ways: she does not live permanently in LA, she maintains a rather ordinary-ish existence in Toronto, she rides her bike, she takes transit, she doesn’t whore herself out at every premiere and party, she doesn’t hit up gifting suites every week, she doesn’t call the paps outside her gym. Full Story

Cory controls the story

Cory Monteith is currently touring with Glee. He can also soon be seen in theatres with Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester in Monte Carlo. Please don’t make me look up the plot of that movie. I don’t think plots will matter to the people who will see that movie. Anyway, to promote all his current projects, and increase his profile of course, Cory was interviewed by Parade and decided to reveal that he was once a drug addict and went to rehab. Full Story

I know. I’m sorry. I deserved your yelling. It’s just...the articles that require a recounting of personal experience, I need to be super focused for those. And the last few days I’ve been working in studio and there’s so much sh-t happening here, I haven’t been able to escape it. Full Story

Men & Breasts

Their own breasts. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana continued to work on The Words in Montreal yesterday and, well, frankly, I have never been less attracted to him. Ever. Maybe it’s just a poor choice of shirt. Jacek says the sun isn’t hitting him right either. And his hair, which is usually the sh-t, looks terrible. Full Story

Blake’s cosy three

Ryan Reynolds hit up Letterman last night. Looking good. And trim. And not wearing a cardigan – approve. I was complaining about this at the MTV Movie Awards. Also, why are men allowed to get away with beat up shoes and nice clothes? Or is that just famous men? Today Ryan was photographed again leaving his hotel in a waistcoat and really nice forearms with grey pants worn well. Full Story
